Mission: Impossible – Fallout Review

by Ian Morton As a writer, the Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie has been rather hit and miss when it comes to Hollywood blockbusters. While his imdb page is plagued by features such as The Tourist and last years, The Mummy, its also glistening with little gems such as 1995’s The Usual Suspects and Edge of Tomorrow.… Continue reading Mission: Impossible – Fallout Review

Searching Review

by Ian Morton The way directors tell a story changes with every passing generation. John Carpenter threw the door open to first person perspective with the Halloween franchise, The Blair Witch Project boosted the popularity of found footage and James Cameron made 3D variations the norm. Now the world can’t go more than 10 minutes without… Continue reading Searching Review

Unsane Review

By Ian Crow Steven Soderbergh is back on the big screen with his latest entry to his collection. Unsane follows a young woman, struggling to cope through everyday life, is thrown off course from her recovery of mental health. Having moved hundreds of miles away from her home town, she now resides in a new… Continue reading Unsane Review

Red Sparrow Review

by Ian Morton The current assassin-centric, espionage thriller genre (quite the mouthful) has seen somewhat of a revival over the last few years. The fantastically brutal John Wick was a sleeper hit way back in 2014 that found such success that it not only managed to breed a sequel, it also spawned a variety of films… Continue reading Red Sparrow Review

Happy Death Day Review

By Ian Crow I can’t remember the last time that I saw a trailer of a film where I thought it looked like an interesting concept but on the flip side, looked absolutely appalling. This might be the best time to introduce the latest horror film to hit cinema screens, Happy Death Day. If you… Continue reading Happy Death Day Review

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, turns a promising 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
