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...

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 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 →

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 →

Detroit (2017)

Hate only breeds hate. One of the tensest I’ve been in the cinema was earlier this year with Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk. Kathryn Bigelow’s Detroit is a close second, and she places you dead centre in the 12th Street Riots in Detroit, amongst the police brutality and racist tension that was rife in 1960s America. Before... 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...
