The Secret Life Of Pets

The Nice Guys

Shane Black possesses some pretty serious cinema credentials. He wrote Lethal Weapon, which must rank as one of the best action films ever made and spawned a long-running but sadly qualitatively diminishing franchise (he only r...
 
 
 
 
 
 

Everybody Wants Some!!

Whether you like him or not, Richard Linklater is simultaneously a unique, prolific and accomplished filmmaker. He’s managed to stealthily glide between genres throughout his career and nearly always leave a worthwhile impressi...
 
 
 
 
 
 

Zoolander 2

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson return in Zoolander 2 – a sequel that feels more like a repeat. The much-quoted Zoolander arrived on screens 15 years ago and has steadily built a cult audience thanks to DVD and TV showings. Fast fo...
 
 
 
 
 
 

Deadpool

A Hollywood life is not always as glamourous as it seems. There have been many a hot actor, who have uglied-up themselves for a role in a desperate bid to get an Oscar in their hot little manicured hands. Take Charlize Theron, ...
 
 
 
 
 
 

Rams

There’s got to be something wrong with a film review site that gives 5/5 to a movie about Icelandic sheep farmers but only 4/5 to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, right? Well, it’s really a matter of perspective. Force Awakens was...
 
 
 
 
 
 

Daddy’s Home

If you’re wanting some un-engaging, frivolous yet harmlessly well-intended fun, you’ve come to the right place. If you’ve come to learn how to win your kids/step-kids/loved ones back, you’ve definitely n...
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Peanuts Movie

It’s all about love in this 2015 rendition of Charlie Brown. Young, hapless, seemingly impossible love when The Little Red Haired Girl (Francesca Capaldi) moves into the neighbourhood stirring up a desperate, nervous longing in...
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Lobster

The Lobster‘s opening scene is that of a woman driving in a car through remote countryside. She stops the car, in the pouring rain, gets out and shoots a donkey dead with a pistol. Thus the stage is set perfectly for this...
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Intern

The Intern wants you to know that it’s OK for women to want it all. Women! It yells. You can run your own start up and have a perfect family all while being irredeemably kooky! Or not, if you don’t want to! Just do what you wan...
 
 
 
 
 
 

Me And Earl And The Dying Girl

Me And Earl And The Dying Girl, sounds like an upbeat story doesn’t it? But, as you can tell by that superfluous ‘and’ in the title, Me And Earl And The Dying Girl is actually a story that wants to make you smile, laugh and the...
 
 
 
 
 
 

Trainwreck

You may not have heard of Trainwreck actress and writer Amy Schumer before. That is unless you are a fan of her US sketch show Inside Amy Schumer. But you’re likely to become very familiar with her in the near future. Bordering...
 
 
 
 
 
 

Pixels

Pixels feels like a missed opportunity. And a big one at that. Classic ’80s video games (somehow) manifest themselves in our three dimensional world and come down from outer space to challenge the people of Earth/America ...
 
 
 
 
 
 

Inside Out

It’s important to call Inside Out by it’s full title; Pixar’s Inside Out. Because rarely, if ever, has their been a brand name in film that is so synonymous with quality. Some could argue Marvel but they’re still new to the gam...
 
 
 
 
 
 

Ant-Man

At some point it is inevitable that Marvel’s run of genuinely enjoyable and hugely successful blockbusters is going to come to an end. When Edgar Wright left Ant-Man, a film he and co-writer Joe Cornish had been working on for ...
 
 
 
 
 
 

Ted 2

There is a moment in Ted 2 in which Mark Wahlberg mutters “déjà vu”. It is of course a nudge from co-writer, vocal star and director Seth MacFarlane of being all too aware of the re-tread his final act is taking from the first ...
 
 
 
 
 
 

Comet

Comet is the kind of film that has the ability to make or break relationships. In some ways it’s because it is about relationships but in others it is that Comet is one of those Marmite movies, there really is no middle ground;...
 
 
 
 
 
 

Entourage

Once you comprehend the fact Entourage isn’t a drama, suddenly it all gets exciting and undeniably hilarious. With as many celebrity cameos as you could dream of, paired with the lovable combination of Vince, his squad and Ari ...
 
 
 
 
 
 

Results

A romantic Mumblecore comedy about the delusions sold to us by fitness freaks Results is a skew on the genre but manages to offer some smart observations. Having impressed with his last film Computer Chess Andrew Bujalski conju...
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Voices

Marjane Satrapi – known primarily for critically acclaimed animated coming-of-age drama Persepolis (2007) – has clearly taken a bold u-turn with her first foray into the landscape of English-language film. Playing l...
