Escape Room review

Reviewed by: Harry H. Sometimes it’s nice to step back and escape the rush and buzz of big blockbusters. Escape Room is a horror/thriller film with a humble budget of $9million, an entree of actors I’ve never heard of and a director who has worked on the most recent (and most disappointing) instalments of Insidious…

Alita: Battle Angel review

Alita: Battle Angel has been a 20 year passion project for renowned producer, James Cameron – A film he hoped would inspire his daughter, with a strong female lead character. Due to Cameron’s commitments to the Avatar franchise though, Alita looked like it was destined remain that way; left to gather dust on a shelf. That was…

Aquaman review

Jason Momoa just can’t escape Atlantis. I am a big fan of Jason Momoa’s, having originally watched him as the elite warrior Ronon Dex in Stargate: Atlantis and then later as the iconic Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones. Whilst this film is a far cry from his SyFy channel beginnings, it’s great to see…

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…
