Good Boys Review

A terrible comedy is many measures worse than a bad drama. There is simply nothing worse than comedy that falls flat, it is the simple measurement of raw despair, hence why the worst films I’ve reviewed in all the time I’ve been a critic have been comedies, and now we have a new contender. Coming…

The Art of Racing in the Rain

Dogs are an easy sell for a film. Put a dog in any middle-of-the-road film and it instantly adds a few zeroes to your box-office gross. That’s why there seems to be so many films about dog’s recently (A Dog’s Purpose, A Dog’s Way Home etc.) it’s because the majority of the world love their…

Stuber Review

The summer blockbuster release slate is often varied. You can expect a few by-the-numbers action flicks (soon to be served up by the Fast and Furious franchise) and more often than not you’ll get a mainstream buddy comedy led by a few a-listers, or up and comers, this year this is brought to us by…

Even though they were only recording artists for ten years, they produced thirteen albums of quality material, among which are some of the greatest albums ever released, so I’m surprised it’s taken this long for a film containing their…

Men in Black: International Review

I have very little interest in the Men in Black franchise, to be perfectly honest with you all. The first one is such a product of the nineties that if it were a person it would have Spice Girls posters, and wear hammer pants, and its sequel isn’t much better. In other words, they haven’t…

Late Night Review

Emma Thomson is essentially a national treasure. Not only a great actress, but a renowned screenwriter (she occasionally doctors scripts uncredited) she is usually the most note-worthy thing of anything she’s in. Unfortunately, Late Night has flown somewhat under the radar, and paired with a release window surrounded by some of the year’s biggest releases,…
