Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Hopkins, Laura Haddock, Josh Duhamel Director: Michael Bay I know that it's the popular thing to dislike these films. Like if a film is big, and you like it, you couldn't possibly be an intellectual. But you know what? I don't care. I had an awesome time at this movie. I… Continue reading Preview: Transformers: The Last Knight (2017)
Starring: Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons Director: Justin Kurzel Game adaptations are always a gamble for the movie goer. They so often are less exciting than the material they base themselves on. If you love the game their based on, they can bastardise the things you love about the game, and if you've never… Continue reading Assassin’s Creed (2016)
Starring: Austin O'Brien, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Charles Dance, Anthony Quinn Director: John McTiernan I remember getting this film out on VHS when I was a kid from Video Ezy, and then watching it a bunch of times because I loved it. I didn't realise at the time that it had been pitched against Jurassic Park, and… Continue reading Last Action Hero (1993)
Starring: Scarlet Johannson, Pilou Asbaek, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche Director: Rupert Sanders I'm going to have to be a bit unpopular and say that I actually enjoyed this film. I remember watching the anime years ago, but I don't remember that much about it, but that I liked it. It was cool and it also… Continue reading Ghost In The Shell (2017)
In the world of spies and espionage, sometimes it’s hard to know if you’re the hunter or the prey and who’s spying on who. At least, that’s how it always goes in spy movies.
This one stars Noomi Rapace as Alice Racine, a CIA operative whose job is to “unlock” people, that is, get vital information and secrets out of them. Since a job she was assigned went wrong in Paris and innocent people were killed in a terrorist attack, she feels responsible and has taken on less risky work in London, but she is called back to the line of duty when she’s the only one who can help get important passwords from a suspected terrorist.
However, it all starts to unravel when she realises that the people she’s working for are not who she thought. Is there a leak in the CIA? Can she stop the terrorists from…

Starring: Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L Jackson, John Goodman, Corey Hawkins Director: Jordan Vogt-Roberts I remember being a little kid and my Dad putting on the original King Kong from the 30's to watch with me and my brother. There are certain scenes of that film that remain embedded in my mind, but the… Continue reading Kong: Skull Island (2017)
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Stephen Merchant, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E Grant, Director: James Mangold Logan, the man who is also known as Wolverine (Jackman), has grown old.

Starring: Will Arnett, Rosario Dawson, Michael Cera, Ralph Fiennes Director: Chris McKay There's a part of me that doesn't entirely get Lego movies. The characters are based on those from other stories, and retain some of their characteristics but not others. I guess that they kind of emulate the kinds of stories that kids create… Continue reading The Lego Batman Movie (2017)

Starring: Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Director: David Ayer Another misguided and confused film from the writer/director of Fury. If you liked that film, this one will please you. Otherwise, the flaws in this film may leave you feeling cold. Holding the major comic book villains in prison, the government develops a plot to… Continue reading Suicide Squad (2016)
