The Snowman Review

by Ian Morton Like its brutal setting, The Snowman finds itself blind within a blizzard as an incredibly confused plot mixed with a string of pointless characters, turning a promised winter thriller into a thawed out mess. Adapted from the book of the same name, the main plot (from what we could make out anyway) centers… Continue reading The Snowman Review

Blade Runner 2049 Review

By Ian Crow Known as one of the greatest Sci-Fi movies ever made, Blade Runner also has one of the more fascinating histories of any film. Multiple cuts are available to buy and watch as Ridley Scott struggled to get his true vision out there. Many decades later, the final cut is out and Blade… Continue reading Blade Runner 2049 Review

Flatliners (2017) Review

by Ian Morton Most adequately described by its title alone, Flatliners falls desperately short with a messy plot, unstructured directing and an odd mix of performances. Through a process known as ‘flatlining’ (which essentially consists of stopping the heart), a group of medical students find more than they bargained for in a quest to study the… Continue reading Flatliners (2017) Review

Death Note Review – Netflix Original

By Ian Morton Death Note is easily one of the better Netflix originals but an overly fast pace paired with a lack of depth might leave some audiences looking for a little more. Based on the manga series of the same name, Death Note follows high school student, Light Turner as he discovers a mysterious book… Continue reading Death Note Review – Netflix Original

Atomic Blonde Review

By Ian Morton While Atomic Blonde certainly has the building blocks for a successful action/thriller, a series of plot issues paired with un-relatable characters holds it back from sparring with the better entries in the genre. Based on the graphic novel of the same name, the plot follows Agent Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) recalling her investigation… Continue reading Atomic Blonde Review

47 Metres Down Review

By Ian Crow The summer blockbusters are steam rolling their way through cinemas. Sometimes it’s nice to break away from the blockbusters that clutter the schedule during the summer. Out of nowhere, an independent horror/drama has arrived and it really impressed me. 47 Metres Down, directed and written by British director Johannes Roberts, the film… Continue reading 47 Metres Down Review

Ian Crow’s Film Masterclass #7 – American Psycho (2000)

Brett Easton Ellis is one of the most controversial and fanatic about detail. That is evident in his book American Psycho, easily one of the best books I have ever read and that was down to interesting characters, dialogue and description of Patrick Bateman’s world and his views. Straight off the bat, a film adaptation… Continue reading Ian Crow’s Film Masterclass #7 – American Psycho (2000)

Split Review

By Ian Crow M. Night Shyamalan is the perfect example of a director going out of his comfort zone. Acclaimed for his fantastic take on the thriller genre which includes the brilliant Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, he went out of what he does best and made a sci-fi in After Earth that turned out to… Continue reading Split Review
