One Hour Photo Review

The job of the critic is often a thankless one. What with many people regarding us as the bottom-feeders of the cinema world, whose very existence is pretentious, we’d have every right to feel a bit put out. But, the reason a critic criticises in the first place is almost universally because of their love…

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…

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Review

Quentin Tarantino is one of my favourite filmmakers.

Fast & Furious: Hobbs and Shaw Review

Basically what I’m saying is, the Fast series is all about the spectacle, no matter how absurd.…

Crawl Review

Secret screenings are a bit of a crap shoot to be honest. I struck lucky earlier this month when I attended one that ended up being Blinded By the Light, which I really enjoyed, so I took the plunge and booked another one. It started with disappointment, unfortunately, as I really wanted the screening to…
