Slender man review

Reviewed by: Harry H. The notion of turning popular video games into films has yielded a mixed bag of results over the years. There are some brilliant examples, such as Silent Hill, Resident Evil and Tron. But these are overshadowed by the sheer number of not-so-brilliant offerings; Doom, Hitman, Prince of Persia, and the sequels to all three of the aforementioned films. So…

The Meg review

“Exactly what kind of shark film is this?”  The shark film genre has had very few true hits, with the original summer blockbuster, Jaws, easily standing above its rival franchises. That’s not exactly an impressive feat, though. For every Jaws and Deep Blue Sea film that surfaces from the deep, you also have the cinematic tragedies of Sharknado and 2-Headed Shark Attack. What this…

Ant-Man and the Wasp review

I’ve lost track of the number of exasperated looks that I’ve earned by asking people if they’ve watched Ant-Man.   To be fair, when he’s sharing a screen with the likes of Captain America, Iron Man and Thor, it might appear as though Marvel Studios is scraping the barrel by presenting a superhero with the ability…

Mission Impossible – Fallout review

There are three types of spy films. First off, we have the James Bond spy – macho, guns blazing and irresistible to any woman he meets. Then there is the Johnny English spy – comical and idiotic at times, yet still able to carry out intricate missions and save the world. Finally, there is the…

Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle review

Review by: Harry H. With the story that began in Netflix’s Godzilla: Planet of Monsters continued in Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle, we must ask the age-old question; “Is it as good as the first?” Yes. It’s not a massive improvement, but it was certainly a more interesting watch, and here’s why: Exploration and development Ok…

The Incredibles 2 review

A lot’s changed since Pixar’s beloved superhero flick, The Incredibles, was released in 2004. It’s easy to forget that it predates the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe by as much as four years, and the DC Extended Universe by nine. It even a came a whole year before Batman Begins, the first chapter in Christopher Nolan’s legendary Dark Knight…

Top Pixar Film Moments

The moment we’ve all been waiting 15 years for is now only a few days away (we would have had it sooner, but UK releases have been delayed due to the World Cup; not that we’re complaining…) To prepare us for the glorious moment The Incredibles 2 hits cinemas, we’ve been looking back over Pixar’s biggest hits….

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom review

“Do you remember the first time you saw a dinosaur?” It’s been 25 years since our first glimpse into the world of doomed island theme parks, genetic manipulation and rampaging dinosaurs. Jurassic Park represented an amazing leap forward in film technology, using a combination of practical effects and – at the time – state-of-the-art CGI, the foundations…

Ocean’s 8 review

It’s fair to say that the announcement of Ocean’s 8 was met with mixed opinions. After the flop that was the all-female reboot of Ghostbusters, the prospect of a similar arrangement to follow-up the wildly successful Ocean’s 11, 12 and 13 had some rolling their eyes, while others questioned why it had taken so long. It’s a gamble that seems to have…
