The Lion King Review

I may have said this before, but in my opinion the high-point of the Disney ‘live-action’ remakes has so far been The Jungle Book. It updated and refreshed a film that was long enough ago to warrant a fresh coat of paint with a stellar cast and a lovely new visual style. So, when the…

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…

Blinded By the Light Review

I’ve never really listened to Bruce Springsteen. His music reminds me of the kind of chest-beating, over-patriotic Americana that really grinds on my nerves. But after watching this and hearing more of his songs than I’d previously heard, I realise that I may have presumed too much about Mr Springsteen. This is a film from…

In terms of artistic output and continuing popularity, no group really comes close to The Beatles. 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…

Child’s Play Review

In case you haven’t seen the darkly hilarious teaser posters for Child’s Play, they include multiple toys from the Toy Story universe after being brutally killed by Chucky, this series’ murderous…

Diego Maradona Review

You may be looking at that title and thinking: ‘I didn’t know he reviewed football players too?’ Well, rest easy, I don’t review football, but I will review films about football. There are few more divisive figures in world football than Diego Maradona. Revered in his home country, and reviled everywhere else, he was a…

Brightburn Review

I remember when this film’s trailer first dropped at the end of last year. The use of James Gunn’s name wasn’t particularly timely at the time, but it seemed like a novel idea at first glance, sure it was such a transparent Superman paralell that it could have been used as window, but the concept…
