Jumanji: The Next Level Review

The last Jumanji film was a pleasant surprise. A reboot of a beloved childhood classic that not only paid its respects to its predecessor, but in some ways exceeded it, bringing a boatload of fresh adventure to a long-dormant title. With a talented cast (and Dwayne Johnson) the new era of Jumanji seemed bright, so…

Charlie’s Angels Review

Now pretty much seems like the perfect time to make a Charlie’s Angels reboot. After all, Hollywood seems to be waking up to the box-office power of female-led films in the wake of #MeToo, and I’d say that we have more than enough macho action heroes around, so making a kick-ass female team sounds like…

21 Bridges Review

It’s fair to say that the Russo Brothers have had a busy few years. They had the keys to the MCU castle for a good few years and delivered some extremely memorable Superhero films, so how do you follow up a 1-2 punch like Infinity War and Endgame? Why by making a run-of-the-mill cop thriller…

Will you please the fans by producing a worthy instalment in an already strong series? Or will you burn the franchise to the ground and…

Gemini Man Review

Will Smith is one of those bankable actors who blows hot and cold in the quality of his films. He made his name in several late-90’s hits, so he can now take a few riskier ventures without really taking a hit to his box office appeal. But, it is still safe to say that Smith’s…

Rambo: Last Blood Review

The Rambo franchise as a whole is a bit of a mixed bag to be honest. I’ve always had a soft spot for them, but truthfully, no film after the first can be called anything above ‘average’ with our best critical hats on. While the fourth instalment (which, by the way, came out 11 years…
