Geostorm (2017)

Think about The Day After Tomorrow but on an epic scale and you’ve kind of got Geostorm sorted. Obviously, the film is meant to hit home on some of the bigger issues surrounding global warming and climate change, but when it’s like this, it’s not effective. Set a tiny bit into the future, a new... Continue Reading →

Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

Finally. Finally something that feels fresh and different that has been produced by the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Normally I am quite apprehensive heading into comic book films now because they have kind of started to plateau into the unmemorable region of films, but Thor: Ragnarok felt a bit different. Wonder Woman earlier this year was... Continue Reading →

Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017)

Back in 2014, Matthew Vaughn and Taron Egerton effectively blew up the action comedy genre with Kingsman: The Secret Service with it’s effective chalk and cheese stylistic approach to the Spy genre. It successfully managed to leave a lasting impression, as Taron Egerton in his first role coupled with Colin Firth (rather brilliantly) made the... Continue Reading →

American Assassin (2017)

How many times has a film had it’s protagonist suffer a life-altering event, for them to use that in their vengeance or as motivation. It’s seems to be a trademark for films involving spies, as the harrowed past is zeroed in on during their training montage. And American Assassin does fall victim to this trope... Continue Reading →

Passenger 57 (1992)

“Always bet on black” I think Wesley Snipes is one of my heroes on film appearing in some of the greatest action flicks of the nineties. My favourite appearance of Snipes is probably in Demolition Man as the blonde-haired Simon Phoenix. Hankering a craving for Wesley Snipes, I decided to check out one of his... Continue Reading →

Blast From The Past: Batman Returns (1992)

Before Christopher Nolan all but completed the Batman franchise with his reimagining of the legendary comic book figure, there was the gothic interpretation, with Tim Burton directing and Michael Keaton returning as the Caped Crusader, after the 1989 Batman film. One of my local cinemas occasionally puts on films of yesteryear, usually cult classics, so... Continue Reading →

Spiderman: Homecoming (2017)

Spiderman: Homecoming marks the third incarnation of the character after Sony have finally allowed the Marvel Cinematic Universe to have their wicked way. Another sign that the MCU is showing no signs of releasing the stranglehold it currently holds over Hollywood. I’m not going to lie, I enjoyed Sam Raimi’s imagining of Spiderman with Tobey...

War for the Planet of the Apes (2017)

After the 2011 reboot, War for the Planet of the Apes is the third instalment and the now-blossoming franchise is showcasing some of the finest effects in modern cinema today with Andy Serkis portraying Caesar throughout. With Matt Reeves returning from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes I was a tiny bit apprehensive, as... Continue Reading →

Transformers: The Last Knight (2017)

Back in 2007, Michael Bay bought the robots in disguise to the silver screen in great fashion. I personally really enjoyed watching these metallic behemoths battle whilst the screen was bathed in a glossy finish during the first instalment. Fast-forward ten years and Michael Bay is still going with this franchise with his latest instalment... Continue Reading →
