Widows Review – A Heist Movie With A Voice (Rating: 9/10)

Having already deemed Ocean’s 8 a good genre movie with a healthy amount of entertainment value, I am now forced to re-evaluate my opinion and say that it’s a nothing movie with little value beyond the two hours and £5 I spent at the cinema to see it. Widows, on the other hand, is a film that I’m certain I’ll be thinking about for a long time … Continue reading Widows Review – A Heist Movie With A Voice (Rating: 9/10)

The Other Side Of The Wind Review – An Embittered and Dated Final Splutter (Rating: 3/10)

I’m going to keep this review short, partly because my M.E. is wearing me down now I’m in the middle of a uni term, but mostly because I feel as though this opinion won’t be a popular one, and I don’t want to drag it out for the majority who will disagree.

The 50% Club: The Hills Have Eyes (2006)

Full disclosure: after marathoning every Nightmare on Elm Street film ever made barring the remake, I decided to check out Wes Craven’s cannibal classic The Hills Have Eyes.

From what I’ve seen though, this is the unlikely remake that neither transcends nor disgraces the name of the … Continue reading The 50% Club: The Hills Have Eyes (2006)

Mandy Review – A Demented Takedown of Megalomanic Men (Rating: 9/10)

I’m not quite sure how to start this review, aside from saying that this film definitely isn’t for everyone. If you find Nicolas Cage’s hamminess aggravating or can’t stomach extreme gore, don’t let the high rating given in the title convince you that this movie will change your mind on either topic. Nick Cage is still batshit, and the violent situations he is placed in … Continue reading Mandy Review – A Demented Takedown of Megalomanic Men (Rating: 9/10)

Revisiting The Twilight Saga: A Lukewarm Defence

Without sounding too sad, instead of going out clubbing with friends, I often prefer to invite them over for bad film watching. It’s always better in a group; you have people to bounce your inevitably aggressive or incredulous opinions off of. I have found during the many times that I’ve done this that the most fun is had from a film you have genuine affection … Continue reading Revisiting The Twilight Saga: A Lukewarm Defence
