Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Review

The time has come for the age of Jurassic Park to end. When you have seen one velociraptor open a door you have seen them all do it. Where the first Jurassic Park built the tension perfectly, every film since has struggled to capture this, and especially so when it comes to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. My interest for the Jurassic Park franchise has become less and less after the release of each film, but after the latest instalment I can confirm I am at my wits end with t

Black Panther Review

There has been a lot of hype around Black Panther, with it being the first proper black superhero film. Like Wonder Woman, it is the first of its kind, which really highlights a specific demographic. I was a fan of Wonder Woman, but I do feel that the quality of the film was blown out of proportion due to it being the first of its kind, and if I am honest, I do feel this is the same for Black Panther. I enjoyed the film, but it was not the best superhero film I have seen by a

Kingsman: The Golden Circle Review

When it comes to the Kingsman films, I felt one was enough. I am a huge Matthew Vaughn fan, but I definitely felt Kingsman: The Secret Service was one of his weaker films. So when I heard they were making a sequel to the gentlemen spy film, I wasn’t particularly interested. When leaving the theatre after seeing Kingsman: The Golden Circle, that lack of interest remained. Kingsman: The Golden Circle centres around our lead character, Eggsy, played by Taron Egerton, a fully fle

American Assassin Review

Some would say Michael Keaton is on a roll of late, after his career was resurrected with his role in the award-winning Birdman, but when it comes to American Assassin, the roll comes to a dramatic halt. American Assassin was a film that seemed like it had a lot of great ideas behind it, but were just poorly executed. I hope this doesn’t have a negative effect on the lead actor, Dylan O’Brien, as I don’t think he is a particularly bad actor, but a film like this can ruin an u

Dunkirk Review

As Dunkirk’s release got closer and closer, the advertising campaign was inescapable. From billboards to Twitter, they all said the same thing - “Experience Dunkirk in cinemas Friday.” Now, I saw it in IMAX on its release day, and an “experience” was exactly what it was. This film had, without doubt, the best visuals and sound I have ever witnessed. As Robbie Collin from The Telegraph put it, “It demands to be seen on the biggest screen”, and there’s a reason for this. Christ

Baby Driver Review

I went into Baby Driver knowing basically nothing. I’d not seen trailers or anything, and was only really aware of the key cast. The one thing I was aware of was the hype, and how it was supposed to be very good - It was. It had everything - fun, compassion, love, laughs, violence, and non-stop action. The film starts with our main man, “Baby”, played by Ansel Elgort, dropping off the heist crew outside a bank. As the driver, his job is to wait for the crew and get them the h

Wonder Woman Review

This year has been a great year for superhero films so far, and it continues to be great with our latest superhero flick, Wonder Woman. Anyone who has kept up with my thoughts in regards to this film will know I had my reservations, but after seeing this film, all of these second thoughts were thrown out the window. Wonder Woman is a brilliant film, finally giving us a solid DCU film. The film starts of in present day, seeing Diana Prince AKA Wonder Woman, in France, doing so

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 Review

With being a huge fan of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.1, I have to say I was extremely excited for Vol.2. After watching the sequel last night, I feel as though this film has suffered from the common problem a lot of sequels suffer from, and that is trying to take what made the first film good and multiplying that by ten. The film starts off with taking us back, and showing us some of Peters history by providing the audience with a little bit of background on his parents. As w

Fate of the Furious Review

“Family”, the word that is completely repeated throughout the Fast & Furious franchise. I have a running joke with my friends about how this theme is the icing on a very cheesy cake. They certainly don’t hold back when pushing this aspect of the movies, but I do have to say it is something that makes us all keep watching these films. Films that have managed to get to it’s 8th instalment whilst increasingly making money with each chapter. Sadly though this "family" just isn’t

Thor: Ragnarok Teaser Trailer

I am not sure about you, but I have been really excited to see the first Thor: Ragnarok trailer, a trailer that feels like we’ve been waiting ages for, but today we were finally treated to it and man does it look good. This is only a teaser but we certainly get shown a fair share amount of exciting footage. It‘s not spoiler heavy, but it definitely shows enough to get us pumped. The trailer starts off by showing us that Thor is not in a good position, then it continues with g

Kong: Skull Island Review

I have been repeatedly saying today that writing this review was going to be hard. Not because it was a bad film, but what made it was the incredible visuals. Kong: Skull Island is a brilliant monster film, and a really good start to the monster movie franchise. You could Say Godzilla started this, but Kong is the first film to confirm what direction the studio are heading in. Kong: Skull Island is a film that needs to be seen in the cinema, and I feel sorry for anyone that m

Hacksaw Ridge Review

I am yet to see La La Land or Moonlight but these films must be something really special to have beaten Hacksaw Ridge at the Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director, as this film is nothing short of brilliant. Not only is it based on an incredible true story, it is an phenomenally well put together film. Mel Gibson has made something really special here, but let’s be honest, were you expecting anything less? Gibson may have his faults within his personal life, but boy does
