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…

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…

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…

Jurassic Park’s 10 best moments

This is a pretty big year for the Jurassic Park series. Not only is Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the hotly anticipated sequel to 2015’s wildly successful reboot, Jurassic World, hitting cinemas today, but 2018 also marks 25 years since the original Jurassic Park kicked off one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time. There’s a lot to love…

Solo: A Star Wars Story review

To put it bluntly, Solo: A Star Wars Story was the film that no one asked for, no one wanted and – with reports of production woes at every turn – no one had any real confidence in. Most notably of said woes was the departure of original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller —…
