Review: Searching (2018)

Searching struck me as one of those films that relies on a gimmick for its success, and as a film that seemed to be your fairly average cut and paste “daughter goes missing dad crosses lines to find her” type film. Like Taken but with less vaguely European […]

Review: Blood Child (2018)

Blood Child, the directorial debut of Jennifer Phillips, was released in the US on the 11th of September. Overall I quite liked this film. The premise sees prospective mother Ashley suffer a miscarriage while in Singapore, whereupon she makes a pseudo Faustian bargain to raise a ghost child […]

Review: Next Gen

Next Gen is the new Netflix original film released to the teaming service on September 7th. The story revolves around a rebellious girl ‘Mai Su’ and her burgeoning friendship with a battle robot ‘7723’. Over the years the thought of a new Netflix original film has filled the […]

Review: Alpha (2018)

It seems likes Alpha has been advertised in the cinema for a year at least, and I wasn’t sure it was ever actually going to come out. I had planned to watch The Happytime Murders instead but after reading of its dire quality I decided to see what […]

Review: Netflix and Kill

Netflix and Kill is a new comedy web-series by Kate Shenton, director of several horror-comedy shorts such as Egomaniac and Send in the Clowns. The series consists of 2-3 minute vignettes that delve into the life of a psychopathic serial killer and his captive victim who have become […]

Review: The Meg (2018)

Anybody that knows me knows that dumb, schlock-filled shark films are a passion of mine. I’ve seen them all, Megashark vs Giant Octopus, Sharknado 1-5, Ghost Shark, Zombie Shark, Sand Sharks, Snow Sharks, if there is a low budget shark film with a mildly intriguing prefix I am […]

Review: Lizard Men #3

Well since my review of Lizard Men #2 I have read Lizard Men #1 and found it a great introduction to, what I can perceive as being, a momentous series of comics from Steven Horry and his team of talented souls.  And then I get episode #3 and […]

Review: The Incredibles 2

Does this one even need an introduction? We all have waited 14 years for this one and it’s my sad duty to say that The Incredibles 2 was……………fantastic. I must say I loved this film and while it is hard for me to see without nostalgia goggles I […]

Review: Hotel Artemis (2018)

I must admit that Hotel Artemis, the sci-fi crime directorial debut of Drew Pearce, snuck largely under my radar and indeed it wasn’t until last week that I saw a trailer for it. I was intrigued to say the least, with such an eclectic cast being reason alone […]

Review: Ocean’s 8 (2018)

The Ocean’s franchise is known for three things, heists, ensemble casts and about a 50% chance of being good. Understandably then, a sequel released 11 years after the last one starring virtually none of the original cast would probably not be very good. Luckily though, this film proved […]

Review: TAG (2018)

TAG, the surprise comedy film starring an ensemble cast of Ed Helms, Jake Johnson, Jon Hamm, Hannibal Buress and Jeremy Renner was released and I could not wait to see it. The premise sees a group of friends unite to continue their 30 year old ritual of a […]
