Film Review: Onward can’t quite meet the dazzling pedigree of its Pixar contemporaries

March 20, 2020

By virtue of unfortunate comparison to Pixar’s impeccable back catalogue of masterpieces, every new film from the studio faces a dauntingly high bar to clear. Last year, Toy Story 4 somehow managed to defy all expectations and walk off with the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature in the process. Sadly, Pixar’s first of two […]

Film Review: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (USA, 2018) Is An Action-Horror-Monster Movie Mashup

June 18, 2018

In 1993 Steven Spielberg brought dinosaurs to life on the big screen in Jurassic Park. And for all its puppetry and animatronics and cinema wizardry then, it astounded us. Now in 2018 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom establishes that dinosaurs are now part of the world around us. It also makes us want to empathise for […]

Film Review: Avengers: Infinity War (USA, 2018) is a non-stop juggernaut of Shock and Awe

April 25, 2018

The last ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building up to this, Avengers Infinity War, and this film is nothing short of a non-stop juggernaut of a blockbuster that refuses to hold back its punches.

Film Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (USA, 2017) evokes the weird wonderment of the original

April 24, 2017

Whilst the general consensus is that the Marvel cinematic universe as a whole is one of the more consistent entities for audiences and critics alike, their track-record for delivering underwhelming sequels (at least compared to their predecessors) is hard to quarrel against.  Iron Man 2, Thor: The Dark World, and Avengers: Age of Ultron are all […]

Dave Bautista on Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2, family units, unintentional comedy, improvising and getting into shape

April 19, 2017

When Guardians Of The Galaxy was released in 2014 it was considered a gamble, a bunch of rag-tag characters including a talking raccoon and a tree that says only three words. They were barely known outside of the comics so Marvel was taking a huge risk, but it paid off and the film was yet […]

Film Review: Passengers (M) (USA, 2016) is far from the grand space opera many will be expecting

December 30, 2016

Similar to how the recently released Allied arrived in cinemas preempted by an action-heavy advertising campaign that proved somewhat misleading, Passengers is far from the grand space opera many will be expecting.  Instead of a sci-fi outing that’s more brawn than brains, Morten Tyldum‘s intriguing film is surprisingly simple, personal, and (mostly) effective. As we […]
