Black Panther (2018)

Since Black Panther’s release, it’s been highly anticipated due to the seemingly rapturous acclaim it has received, from people buying out theatres and reviews being accompanied with the #BlackExcellence tag. I have avoided everything as much as possible from reviews, interviews and even trailers, in anticipation for the MCU’s 18th film. And it only made... Continue Reading →


12 Strong (2018)

In recent memory, the last big war film was American Sniper which actually turned out to be a piece heavily centred on an American involved in the war, and was sickly with pseudo-propaganda. 12 Strong does continue this trend slightly, but instead of the pseudo-propaganda that influenced American Sniper, 12 Strong showed the other side...

Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018)

It was clear from the second instalment of The Maze Runner series that they were not going to be truthful to source books. The Scorch Trails continued Thomas’ quest against WCKD. But I still went along as I’m at the point where I’ve invested too much into the franchise to not see The Maze Runner:... Continue Reading →

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 →
