Diego Maradona (2019)

When I was growing up, Diego Maradona was always a controversial figure, hated by England for his role in the infamous ‘Hand of God’ goal at the 1986 World Cup. Ever since that, majority of words following Diego Maradona were always cheat and scum. However, there is no denying that he was a special player,... Continue Reading →

Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)

I’m pretty sure when they rebooted Godzilla and moved it into the MonsterVerse franchise, my review mentioned my love for the Godzilla films. Especially the 1997 Matthew Broderick-led one. Considering how well the first one was received and the enjoyment it garnered from everyone, it’s unsurprising that the behemoth is back again on the big... Continue Reading →

Captain Marvel (2019)

After around 10+ years, it seemed as though the Marvel Cinematic Universe finally hit their stride with making films. Creating a certain type of buzz time and time again for all their recent releases. It would make sense considering they’ve made around 20-odd films too. And after that post-credits scene in Avengers: Infinity War, it... Continue Reading →

Alita: Battle Angel (2019)

Mild Spoilers Included Recently Hollywood has seen an influx of films that have been adapted from works originating from the Far East. And in truth, it’s been a real enjoyment as it introduces differing characters that aren’t usually featured in recent times. The biggest release recently has been Ghost In The Shell, which was met...

Cold Pursuit (2019)

I saw the trailer for Cold Pursuit whilst in the cinema and I wasn’t quite sure what to make of the film that seemed to go for a thriller-type film sprinkled with helpings of black comedy, which gave it strange Guy Ritchie notes. And it’s not exactly a secret of my distaste for Liam Neeson’s... Continue Reading →

Green Book (2019)

It seems as though I’m a little late to the viewing party of Green Book, but I don’t think it lessens the impact that the film had. And after a number of months not writing a film review, it feels that like a good one to come back to. And the awards season had this... Continue Reading →

Widows (2018)

I honestly think that Steve McQueen is one of our generations greatest directors, and he shows an incredibly ability to show brilliant characters that are versatile. And after a slight quiet period, he is back with his latest film, Widows. Naturally, I felt apprehensive with this, but once the trailer hit it got me really... Continue Reading →

Slaughterhouse Rulez (2018)

Naturally around Halloween there are films that are inflected with horror tropes and themes. And more often than not, there is a film that is tongue and cheek with it’s approach. And for me, the best ones are always the British ones. One such film doing the rounds this year is Slaughterhouse Rulez. I only... Continue Reading →

The Hate U Give (2018)

One film that I hold very dear is John Singleton’s Boyz n the Hood because of the message of ‘Increase the Peace’ that is nurtured throughout the film. For me The Hate U Give very much felt like a modernised Boyz n the Hood, not because of the subject matter, but because of the characterisations... Continue Reading →
