“He said that wherever I went, he would find me…” (The Invisible Man review)

Loosely based on the classic H. G. Wells novel, ‘The Invisible Man’ is that rare film remake that actually works. By adapting its source material to fit its modern surroundings, it is a smart, thrilling and chilling horror that says as much about domestic abuse as it does for fun sci-fi thrills. After escaping from … Continue reading “He said that wherever I went, he would find me…” (The Invisible Man review)

“Well… if it isn’t the Wyld Stallyns…” (Bill and Ted Face the Music review)

Returning after nearly 30 years away from the big screen, the two excellent friends are back to bring a joyous film to cheer us all up. With old faces joining new ones, the film is exactly as good as the other ones – take from that statement what you will. 30 years on, and Bill … Continue reading “Well… if it isn’t the Wyld Stallyns…” (Bill and Ted Face the Music review)

“All I have for you is a word…” (Tenet review)

After nearly six months, I finally returned to the cinema to see the most cinema worthy film. Huge practical action, a mind-boggling premise and a huge amount of noise, ‘Tenet’ is as Nolan as Nolan gets. To say anything about ‘Tenet’ is to potentially give away spoilers best discovered on the screen, so simply stated … Continue reading “All I have for you is a word…” (Tenet review)

“Jaja Ding Dong. My love for you is growing wide and long…” (Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga review)

From director David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) and Will Ferrell comes the film adaptation nobody expected: Eurovision: The Movie! Telling the tale of an Icelandic band who dream of performing at Eurovision, it’s just like a usual edition of the contest: Too long, politically edged, but wonderfully camp fun. It was only a matter of time … Continue reading “Jaja Ding Dong. My love for you is growing wide and long…” (Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga review)

Catching Up on The Classics Vol. 1 (Risky Business, Fatal Attraction & Ghost Stories reviews)

You might’ve noticed there’s not been a lot of activity on this blog recently, owing to a certain lockdown and cinema closure. While I desperately hope that cinemas reopen soon, it can’t be denied that they should remain closed until the public threat is minimised. HOWEVER, this isn’t a political blog, this is a film … Continue reading Catching Up on The Classics Vol. 1 (Risky Business, Fatal Attraction & Ghost Stories reviews)

“Uh…Meow?” (Sonic the Hedgehog review)

The date: April 30th 2019. The event: The first Sonic trailer is released online. The issue: HORRIBLE CGI design of the main character. After a six-month delay from its original release date, Sonic the Hedgehog is finally released with a fully re-designed character.
