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 →


The Commuter (2018)

If you know me at all, I do not like Liam Neeson. I find him to be a very subpar actor in general. I only remember one film in which I’ve enjoyed Liam Neeson’s performance and that is a fleeting cameo in Gangs of New York. Since then he’s featured in the largely forgettable Unknown,...

The Post (2018)

I certainly believe that what Spotlight did for cinema was that it could show journalism can become an enticing and invigorating piece of narrative. Where Spotlight was an in-depth look into a team of investigative journalists, The Post becomes an engaging look into the Washington Post as an institution. And the pairing of Steven Spielberg...

The Shape of Water (2018)

I am of the opinion that Guillermo Del Toro is one of the best directors in the world and that comes down to his versatility as a director. Although he feet place firmly in the fantasy realm, it’s how he incorporates these into his films that make them alluring. Some of my best movie experiences... Continue Reading →

Coco (2018)

I cannot for the life of me remember what the last Disney Pixar film I watched in the cinema was, but they are always a delight. They always bring out some heavy hitters, with the best being Inside Out. And here they are again, but this time with the story taking place during the Mexican... Continue Reading →

Power Rangers (2017)

A great deal of my childhood was spent watching the Power Rangers morph in their ultimate fight machine, the Megazord. Surprisingly though, I was unmoved with the announcement of the reboot. I certainly didn’t rush out to see the new imagining of the legendary characters. What has become common occurrence with reboots is the origin... Continue Reading →

Darkest Hour (2018)

I’m unsure what it is, but we have a second Winston Churchill film. Firstly it was Brian Cox’s take on the historical figure of Churchill, but now it’s Gary Oldman’s chance. And it’s immediately clear that they are bringing difference takes on this influential character to their respective films. Where Churchill had it take place... Continue Reading →

All the Money in the World (2018)

Even before All the Money in the World hit our screens, it was making headlines. If you've been under a rock, it garnered this attention as Ridley Scott chose to completely recast J.P. Getty in this film. Initially Kevin Spacey was to star as the famed billionaire, but due to the allegations against him, Scott simply cut... Continue Reading →
