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 com...

When Solo: A Star Wars Story was announced, I have to be honest, I felt that a film about the legendary character Han Solo, from the original Star Wars trilogy, didn’t need to be made. One of the many great things about Han Solo is the mystery about his background and...

Due to Deadpool being a huge success, mainly because of the unexpected nature of the film, it was only a matter of time before a sequel was to follow. I was a fan of the first film, but have always said that it walked a very thin line between comedy and being outright...

If you’ve read many Avengers: Infinity War reviews, they’d tell you how it is 10 years on since the MCU started, where Tony Stark was introduced to the big screen and, with that, the first ever after credit teaser was revealed. “You think you are the only superhero out...

Writer and Director, Martin McDonagh, hasn’t done many films, with his CV only consisting of two before the release of Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. His first film, In Bruges, is one of my favorite films ever. The blend of comedy and sadness is borderline...

As I get older I start looking at films differently and forget what some films are intended for, that not all of them have to be epics or works of art and that some are just made to be enjoyed by all ages. This is exactly what Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle gets right....

Before I managed to get round to watching Bright, I couldn’t escape the mixed reviews, with the film having fairly decent audience scores but very low scores from the critics. To be honest, I don’t think all round bad scores would have put me off watching this film, as...

***Spoiler Warning***

As many of you may be aware already, we here at Life of Films are not big fans of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but we appreciated the foundations it had laid with the new characters like Rey and Finn. There is a good mystery around these character...
