Logan (2017) – Review

Logan is brutal, merciless and hellishly entertaining. This is the R-rated Wolverine movie that I have been waiting for! Hardcore fans of the Wolverine character will know that he’s ultra-violent and ruthless, with a killer instinct, which to my mind is something we haven’t seen fully realised in the child-friendly X-men films. Logan digs deeper into the character, […]

Hacksaw Ridge (2017)

The word relentless springs to mind when I think of Hacksaw Ridge. It’s a film that commits completely to capturing the intensity and brutality of war. It does not hold back. Bloods, guts, limbs are on full display and young Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) is at the heart of the action. Volunteering to fight in WW2, […]

Cop Car (2015)

If you think back to your childhood, there was probably a time where you found something in the woods that you thought was really cool, like an unusual object, or an old swing rope across a river. But in Watt’s film, rebellious boys Travis (Freedosn-Jackson) and Harrison (Wellford) find a cop car. Better yet, the […]

Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016)

Pleasantly funny, unassuming and strangely compelling, are some of the ways I would describe Hunt for the Wilderpeople.  Waititi delivers a light comedy-drama, that doesn’t takes itself too seriously. Dennison portrays Ricky Baker, a rebellious young boy who gets sent to live with a couple on a remote farm in the New Zealand countryside. Chaos ensures […]

Inception (2010)

When Inception crashed into theatres, I rushed to see it and to this day, it’s still one of the best films I’ve seen at the cinema. And it was literally the only thing I wanted to talk about for at least a week after watching it. An Ingenious Action Thriller With its quality action and a complex […]

Ant-Man (2015)

In typical Marvel fashion, Ant-Man is another entertaining, action-packed, and an extremely likeable superhero flick. The film follows skilled thief, Scott Lang as he is recruited by the former S.H.I.E.L.D agent, Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), to take on the persona of Ant-Man. The suit allows its wearer to harness its shrinking powers, superhuman abilities, and to control and […]

Source Code (2011)

A large portion of audiences don’t want to have to think too hard when they watch a film, preferring entertainment over thought-provoking subjects. There’s nothing wrong with this, but I believe sometimes, you need to branch out. Enter Source Code… This is both an enthralling and intellectually stimulating movie! Directed by Duncan Jones, Source Code is about alternate […]

All Is Lost (2013)

Robert Redford is the sole actor in All Is Lost, a film with very little dialogue, which depicts the ordeal of a man lost at sea. Venturing on a solo cruise, Redford’s character finds himself in a horrendous situation where he is forced to fight for survival. As the only person on screen, he is entirely alone, […]

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) 

Guardians of the Galaxy is another entry in Marvel Studios’ continuously expanding cinematic universe. Chris Pratt portrays Peter Quill, a human who leads a group of extraterrestrial misfits on a journey to save the galaxy. Unlike the intensity of many other superhero films, Guardians of the Galaxy is a much more fun, comical and tongue-in-cheek. The film […]

Deadpool (2016)

Deadpool – a gleeful, self-referential character bathed in satire, gets his first taste of the big-screen. Well, sort of. Deadpool technically made his first appearance in the very forgettable, X-Men: Origins. But the film messed up the character so bad, that I’m literally not counting that version as Deadpool. I’m happy to report that director Tim Miller, […]
