Suicide Squad – Review

If DC was a parrot, John Cleese would be returning to the pet shop now to Michael Palin and demanding a new one as this parrot is well and truly “bleeding demised”. The exciting “DC Universe” we were told about, has entered intensive care and has called the family to warn them that the end […]

Jason Bourne 1

Review: Jason Bourne

For years fans, critics even, have been clamouring for more Bourne action, a follow up to the most intelligent and enjoyable espionage action series in many a year. Star Matt Damon held out until gun-fu guru director Paul Greengrass was ready with the “right story” – well, be careful what you wish for, because this […]

Star Trek Beyond -2016

Review: Star Trek Beyond

“Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship  Ennui..” Or so it seems at the beginning of Star Trek Beyond. Three years into her five year deep space mission to explore new life etc, Chris Pine as Enterprise’s Captain Jim Kirk is beginning to feel things, in one of many meta jokes, […]

Captain America: Civil War Review

When aliens sift through the wreckage of our planet as it hurtles aimlessly through the endless gulf of Space, they will probably want to study each year forensically, perhaps even doing it year by year. What will become immediately clear to them is that 2016 was the year of Superheroes fighting each other for essentially spurious reasons […]

Review – Keanu (2016)

Keanu is the first feature length film from comedy duo Key and Peele, written by Peele in part and directed by Peter Atencio, whose work I’m not familiar with but I can tell you should be completely categorized as “meh.” The issue with any television show that makes the jump to feature length film is “will […]

At night. In a cool car. Couple this with the boy’s need to shelter from the light, and you could rename it […]

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Review

Imagine you have five complicated jigsaw puzzles and then threw them on the floor. Then instead of reassembling them or attempting to decipher the pieces into any sense of order, you instead decide to mash all five of them together while wielding a hammer to ensure that even the fat pieces that don’t go with […]

Review: In The Heart Of The Sea

Ron Howard’s In The Heart Of The Sea has finally arrived with a minnow sized splash, rather than a mighty whale sized hole in the hull of box office figures. The blame, like points of a compass, can be laid in any number of directions – the delayed release, its poor marketing; but ultimately, the […]
