The Grand Budapest Hotel Review

I have never seen a film quite like this. Wes Anderson’s brilliant and goddamn beautiful ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ pulled everyone in the screen into a state of hypnosis with his breathtakingly bright colour palette and some simple, but superb little perfections such as the stitching of the word ‘Lobby Boy’ on Zero’s hat. Wes… Continue reading The Grand Budapest Hotel Review

Fifty Shades of Grey Review

The worldwide phenomenon, mummy-porn, Twilight fan fiction, erotic drama; it doesn’t matter what you label it, either way, it’s going to be a humungous hit at the box-office and will send peoples pulses through the roof, especially if you’re a fan of the books.  Before its first day on general release worldwide, ‘Fifty Shades of… Continue reading Fifty Shades of Grey Review

Inherent Vice Review

Paul Thomas Anderson brings to life the West coast of LA in all its 70’s charm! But why has this adaptation had critics raving but the public walking? Adapted from the novel of the same name, Inherent Vice focuses on Larry ‘Doc’ Sportello, a private investigator tasked with finding his ex-girlfriend upon hearing she has… Continue reading Inherent Vice Review

Selma Review

Before the Oscar nominations were released a few weeks back, ‘Selma’ was one of the most talked about films at the time. Critics and the public alike were expecting a full swoop of nominations, but everyone was shocked at the amount of nominations it received; only two. Best Original Song and Best Film, which is… Continue reading Selma Review

Ex-Machina Review

British Science Fiction thriller ‘Ex-Machina’ starring Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson & Alicia Vikander is a stunning piece of story-telling, superb acting and a gripping plot. Directed by Alex Garland, who is well known for being the author of ‘The Beach’ back in 1996, it was then ultimately picked up by the upcoming British director Danny… Continue reading Ex-Machina Review

The Interview Review

Before its eventual release in the US in cinemas and on digital platforms, ‘The Interview’ became the most talked subject around the world, let alone being the most talked about film. It wasn’t gathering widespread recognition for the film; it was getting recognized for the wrong reasons. Jump back a few months to December where… Continue reading The Interview Review

Kingsman: The Secret Service Review

Previously boasting a November release date, ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ was put back to January which obviously rings alarms that the project is in some sort of trouble. Also, January is also generally known for the awards season, so normally films that are released in January that are not nominated are normally sub-average films; but… Continue reading Kingsman: The Secret Service Review

Big Hero 6 Review

Since Disney’s split from Pixar in the animated field, people’s expectations of upcoming Disney animated films were low. No one thought that they could carry on the marvellous work that they had done together including the likes of ‘Toy Story’, ‘Wall-E’ & ‘The Incredibles’. Since then, Disney has released the brilliant ‘Wreck-It-Ralph’ and the box-office… Continue reading Big Hero 6 Review

Gone Girl Review

David Fincher is back with his 10th feature film and in my personal opinion, his best without a doubt! Gone Girl is the adaptation of the book of the same name which was written by Gillian Flynn, and this is where all the boxes start to be ‘ticked’. David Fincher allowed Gillian Flynn to write… Continue reading Gone Girl Review

A Most Violent Year Review

1981, New York City, crime was at large, boasting the unsavoury record of the most violent year to date. Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) & Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) star in this gritty crime drama which completely re-invents the genre and changes your stereotypical ways of judging a character in this genre. Oscar Isaac… Continue reading A Most Violent Year Review
