Logan Lucky Review (2017)

When people give you the elevator pitch for Logan Lucky, they are bound to say something along the lines of “Think Ocean’s Eleven, but with rednecks”. This may sum up Steven Soderbergh‘s return to feature film-making after a bit of a hiatus, but that description really doesn’t do justice to this smartly-written story about a…

Spider-Man: Homecoming Review (2017)

Well there’s no doubt about it, this movie rocks. A collaboration with Sony and Marvel, this is the second reboot that Spidey has gone through on the big screen but, unlike the previous attempt, this one sticks the landing. Avoiding rehashing the origin story that the mainstream audience is now probably sick to death of,…

Ghostbusters Review (2016)

Rated PG13 (for supernatural action and some crude humour). From the moment the first trailer was released for the new Ghostbusters reboot, the film was facing an uphill battle.  Quickly becoming one of the most down-voted videos on YouTube, it was surprising how great the vitriol was from the internet, claiming that the four female leads were an…

Finding Dory Review (2016)

Rated PG. In 2003, Pixar released its fifth animated feature. A little movie called Finding Nemo. Following a tiny clownfish called Marlin and a blue tang called Dory, the film chronicled their journey across the ocean, searching for Marlin’s lost son Nemo. It was an unqualified success at the box office, with multiple Oscar nominations. Now,…

Zootopia Review (2016)

Rated: PG If the Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and The Lion King signalled the Disney Renaissance, then Disney’s foray into the world of 3D animation with hits such as Tangled, Wreck-it-Ralph and Frozen is like the Second Coming. They have proven that they have what it takes to contend with the best…

Deadpool Review (2016)

Rated R (for strong violence and language throughout, sexual content and graphic nudity) Deadpool has always been a bit of an anomaly in the comic book world. An indestructible anti-hero with the ability to heal any damage (and I mean any damage) to his body, a tendency to break the fourth wall and talk directly to…

The Final Girls Review (2015)

Rated PG-13 (horror violence, crude and sexual material, language and drug use) Ah the slasher film. The home of slutty girls, dumb jocks, boobs, sex and copious amounts of gore. These B-movie flicks were the staple of the 80’s and provided many a night of entertainment with their groan-worthy dialogue, jump-scares and so-bad-it’s-good acting and…
