For no particular reason whatsoever I remembered this film existed yesterday and decided to review it. I was surprised, especially considering this was a Disney Channel Original Movie, that a lot of people I asked either didn't remember or didn't know about this movie. I think this was compounded by the fact that it had … Continue reading Movie Review: Don’t Look Under the Bed
Blackball has all the makings of a cult classic, it's certainly an engaging plot, but it never quite gained the recognition that I felt it deserved. In fact the reviews were largely mixed, with some agreeing, like me, that it's a carefree and enjoyable little sporty romp, while others felt, with some merit I suppose … Continue reading Movie Review: Blackball
Maybe it's just the literary nerd in me but I really like movies which open with a quote of some kind, and the more obscure the better in my opinion. Gattaca opens with a pair of whoppers, the first is a poignant quote from Ecclesiastes 7:13, "consider god's handiwork who can straighten what he hath … Continue reading Movie Review: Gattaca
Inception is a really good movie, but despite the rave reviews and personal recommendations from people whose opinions I trust, it took me way too long to actually get around to watching this movie. Good or not, it's far from perfect, and lies heavily upon some pretty sketchy premises, but those don't notably impact my … Continue reading Movie Review: Inception
Considering the trippy, very cognitive nature of this movie, that it felt like one big long 'Hangover' from Bradley Cooper. Shit Joke Alert! And I'm starting off early this time. I think that Limitless makes my personal Top 5 favourites movies, joining movies like Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Shawshank Redemption, Bulletproof Monk and Disturbia. … Continue reading Movie Review: Limitless
So I think I will open with a dumb joke, James Bond might not have a Golden Eye, but he sure does have a eye for the ladies...haha. Okay got that out of the way early, let's move on with the review. First thing, as we progress, as more movies come out each year and … Continue reading Movie Review: James Bond – GoldenEye
I don't want to colour the rest of the review with this statement but I'd like to say that this movie is a cinematic gem, and while personally I am not a fan of Quentin Tarantino, he knows how to make an engaging film. As I just said, Quentin Tarantino is not my favourite person … Continue reading Movie Review: Pulp Fiction
They really went all out to capture the retro game vibe that's central to Scott Pilgrim, they even have a delightful eight-bit version of the universal studios logo, which I think sets us up perfectly for the visual style prevalent in the movie. Following on from that, the establishing shot resembles panels of a comic … Continue reading Movie Review: Scott Pilgrim vs The World
It's been a few weeks since I wrote my review of Batman: Mask of the phantasm and apparently in that time I forgot that Warner Bros deal with these movies. It just boggles the mind that the same people that made the looney Tunes brought these epic stories to life. The opening scene in which … Continue reading Movie Review: Superman vs. The Elite
This movie is adorable from start to finish. But seriously what the hell is up with the art style for this movie. Pretty much everyone has a horrible looking gherkin type thing for a nose. Anyway, art aside, if I had to summarise this movie and the man standing behind me with a gun to … Continue reading Movie Review: The Book of Life
Like many people I was eagerly awaiting the release of Marvels next cinematic masterpiece and the next instalment in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise and I'm glad to say I wasn't disappointed. Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 was released on the 28th April 2017 and was written and directed by James Gunn and … Continue reading Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy – Vol. 2
When I set out to watch this movie I wasn't sure what you expect. I hadn't seen many trailers and the ones I had scene has me believing it was different, more like the Iron giant meets Harry Potter but I was surprised by this movie and could see myself watching it again. Also if … Continue reading Movie Review: A Monster Calls
I’ll admit that description could equally apply to Zootopia and if this movie had one failing it's that it is to similar to that movie. I guess it was just bad timing because now comparisons will forever be drawn between the two of them. Being completely honest though bare bones, sure they’re similar but this … Continue reading Movie Review: Sing!
When I decided to watch Why Him? I expected to at most not hate it but I was pleasantly surprised by what this movie had to offer. Sure it might cling to well established plot formulas and overall it seemed like James Franco was just playing a sensationalised and wish fulfilled version of himself the … Continue reading Movie Review: Why Him?
This is by far one of the most iconic movies in the Batman franchise, as well as easily being the best animated Batman film. I was also greeted by a heartwarming wave of nostalgia thanks to the Warner Bros Logo flashing at me during the intro credits. Also it is comforting to note that by … Continue reading Movie Review: Batman – Mask of the Phantasm
