Review: Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom roared into theatres today and I was summarily disappointed. This is a sequel to both 2015’s Jurassic World and the 1990’s Jurassic Park franchise, and while it tries to be a film unto itself it ultimately ends up being a botched together montage filled […]

Review: Geek Girl Mini Series #1

So once again we join the adventures of Geek Girl. Created by Sam Johnson she’s just an average girl who gains special powers by donning a technically advanced pair of glasses. This issue concentrates on the arc development of a number of the main characters. There seems to […]

Review: Black Fly (2014)

I was recently made aware that a little known independent film called Black Fly has been released after some studio trouble delayed it. I read the synopsis and while it was interesting enough to watch I was still relatively sceptical as to what the film was actually about. […]

Review- Solo: A Star Wars Story

Since Lucasfilm moved into the House of Mouse I haven’t been too enamored with the smattering of Star Wars films they have released. The Force Awakens was repetitive ( I know they rhyme like poetry but Abrams needs to stop with his patented brand of mystery box nonsense), […]

Review- Batman: Ninja

When I think of Batman, there are 3 main characteristics that come to mind. Batman is the world’s greatest detective. Batman is an excellent tactician and fighter. Batman’s greatest weapon is his mind. These are three characteristics that are quintessential to the Batman mythos, and not getting the […]

Review: Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2 came out on Tuesday and, like every other comic book movie my friends and I rushed out to see it. I didn’t enjoy the first deadpool all that much when it was released. I liked it, but I found that after seeing it a couple times […]

Review: Cobra Kai

When I heard that a Karate Kid sequel series was going to be released through Youtube Red I, like many others, wondered why and how they could resurrect a seemingly dead 80’s franchise and advance the story and characters without it being a total soulless cash grab. When […]

Review: Lizard Men #2

Now before I get to the nitty gritty, I have to hold my hand up and state that the last time I read a comic book was when I was considering writing a screenplay version of Rogue Trooper and that must’ve been at least 14 years ago, a […]

Review: The Ferryman (2017)

Mournfully atmospheric, The Ferryman  draws you instantly into the plight of the lonely Mara (played by Nicola Holt) and her prosaic daily routine. Hints are given of a life that was, but make no mistake about it, the Mara we meet is in a disturbing struggle with her own existence […]

Review: Them (2016)

‘Them’ is a 2016 horror short by ‘Vulpinos Film’. Directed and co produced by Charles Bolprand and staring Claudia Rivarelli. The short has little in the way of plot it’s a single header, which seems to focus on protagonist succumbing to worsening schizophrenia. The visual are more uncomfortable […]

Review: For Her (2017)

Jonathan and Elizabeth are deeply in love. But their relationship is tested when Elizabeth becomes afflicted by a devastating illness. Follow Jonathan’s emotional journey as he struggles to deal with inevitable tragedy, and discover what lengths he’s willing to go to, For Her. Like a lot of short […]

Review: Deathnote (2017)

Director Adam Wingard’s take on Death Note (created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata) is an interesting one. Whilst there are many changes to the manga and anime source material I feel this is done to make the story more accessible to a mainstream audience. Think of this […]

Review: Dogged (2017)

Dogged started life as an award winning short film in 2015 that was shot in a “single, tortuous, 18 hour day for a budget of just £200.” The film went on to win critical acclaim – finishing fifth overall on the BBC Three show “The Fear” – a televised […]
