The Snowman (2017)

Personally, I think Michael Fassbender is one of the best actors in the game at the moment. And one of my favourite foreign language films is Headhunters, which is adapted from a Jo Nesbø novel, so naturally the pairing of the two was always going to be welcome with The Snowman. However, the early reviews... 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 →

Loving Vincent (2017)

Everyone knows the famous works of art from Vincent Van Gogh, but if you’re like me, you know little of his life previously, aside from his apparent madness that made him cut off his own ear. In a never-been-done before film, Loving Vincent changes the way we view films, with every frame being hand painted... Continue Reading →

mother! (2017)

I am of the opinion that if a film manages to divide audiences far and wide, then that is a measure of a good film. And with that in mind it was always going to be intriguing going into mother! due to the response that it had garnered. I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect... Continue Reading →

Flatliners (2017)

Hands up if you didn’t realise this was a remake of a 1990s Kevin Bacon film So, my hand is up. Especially when I made the connection halfway home after viewing the 2017 reimagining. Flatliners posed a really interesting question at the beginning of it’s film as it questions what happens to us after we... 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 →

The Limehouse Golem (2017)

Here we are again! Often with period dramas, the film hangs in the balance of whether it's actually believable. The Limehouse Golem is no exception to this role as it breathes in a feel of Victorian London that is rife with grit and dirt found in the Limehouse district. But one strange thing about The...
