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 →

Patti Cake$ (2017)

Never meet your idols. There’s a certain allure about a underdog story, someone that you can root for. In the case of Patti Cake$ Patricia Dumbrowski is the underdog. Often when films concern rap music and underdogs, their stories usual hail from Los Angeles, Detroit or Chicago. Patti Cake$ decides to put New Jersey on... Continue Reading →

The Big Sick (2017)

Having Judd Apatow’s name appear next to a comedy, the likelihood is that it’s going to be quite good. His name features against some of the better comedies in recent memory, including Anchorman, Superbad and Step Brothers to name a few. Some of these films are a hive for intriguing, but genuine characters. The Big... Continue Reading →

Mindhorn (2017)

One of the biggest things that attracted me to Mindhorn was the casting of the Mighty Boosh pairing of Julian Barratt and Simon Farnaby. The trailers had me in fits of laughter everytime and it just looked brilliant with Julian at the helm. Brilliantly the story seemed very simple (which stemmed from a idea by... Continue Reading →

Free Fire (2017)

Hot Fuzz tonally set the benchmark for me for Action Comedies, as every other action comedy film just does not seem to get the correct blend. For whatever reason, Hot Fuzz had this blend perfected and it’s never aged since its 2007 release. Enter Free Fire, the trailers seemed have this balance tuned to perfection, which...

School of Rock (2003)

If you know me on a personal level, you’ll understand just how much I enjoy School of Rock. It’s one of my personal favourites and I could watch it for a very long time, without getting bored. Jack Black seems to be a marmite character and very divisive even before he appears on screen. I... Continue Reading →

Dirty Grandpa (2016)

Dirty Grandpa seems to be a universally loathed film. From reviews to podcasts to word of mouth, it seemed as though Dirty Grandpa did not have an audience anywhere. Considering the success of Efron’s Bad Neighbours and Robert De Niro, you know being Robert De Niro it surely can’t be that bad. Right? Surely! Efron... Continue Reading →

The Big Short (2015)

The Big Short and Spotlight were two of the main frontrunners into last years Oscar season. I have watched The Big Short twice recently and I am still flabbergasted at the terminology and trying to wrap my head around the premise. The Big Short is based around the housing crisis that caused an economic meltdown... Continue Reading →
