Review: Incredibles 2

Incredibles 2 (Disney/Pixar) Cert PG, 125 mins Was it really 14 years ago that The Incredibles burst onto our screens in a blaze of superhero glory and introduced us to the world’s most amazing family? Or was that the last time I posted a review? Not sure what feels like longer. Sorry regular readers –…

Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story (Lucasfilm) Cert 12a, 135 mins I only really have one negative thing to say about Solo so let’s get it out the way nice and early. It was released at the wrong time of year. Star Wars has pretty much owned the box office for the last three years at…

Review – Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2 (20th Century Fox/Marvel/Kinberg Genre/Maximum Effort) Cert 15, 119 mins Hmm. How to write a spoiler free review of Deadpool 2 without going into detail about some of the jokes and insane things which happen…this is a tough one! The good news is that I think I missed quite a lot because I was…

Drunk Spoiler Free Review – Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War (Marvel Studios) Cert 12A, 149 mins Regular readers may have an inkling I’m a huge fan of comic book movies and have been very excited about Avengers: Infinity War for quite some time. Well that’s a lie. I’m a comic book movie fan apart from DC ones which are filmed in the…

Review – A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place (Paramount/Platinum Dunes) Cert 15, 90 mins Going to see a film in the cinema is a leap of faith sometimes. Audiences are a mixed group it’s fair to say so you never quite know who you’ll end up sitting next to. Some people display such a lack of self control or awareness…

Review – Ready Player One

Ready Player One (Warner Bros, Amblin, Village Roadshow) Cert 12A, 140 mins Having never read the book which Ready Player One is based on (apparently the book is called Ready Player One as well which is pretty handy eh?) I went into the cinema with no expectation of what was to come. Which for me…

Review – Red Sparrow

Red Sparrow (20th Century Fox/TSG) Cert 15, 140 mins Spy movies can be a real hit or miss affair. Overcook the plot with too many twists and red herrings and you run the risk of confusing the audience to the point where they’re left wondering if they are the double agent or if it’s their…

Review – Black Panther

Black Panther (Marvel) Cert 12a, 134 mins Typical. In the UK we tend to get Marvel movies a good few days ahead of the rest of the world and here I am writing my review of Black Panther nearly three weeks later. I see Marvel have now brought forward the release of Avengers: Infinity War…

Race for The Oscars 2018

    Hard to believe but it’s a year since the infamous Oscars ceremony of 2017 where the film which really was the worthy winner wasn’t and that film had to call up the actual winner because of the scourge of modern society – people pissing about on their mobile phones and not paying attention…

Review – The Shape of Water

The Shape of Water (Fox Searchlight/TSG/Double Dare You) Cert 15, 123 mins So you know last month I said Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri was a sure thing for Best Picture at the Oscars? We may have a serious contender to stop that happening. That doesn’t change the fact that Three Billboards is likely to…

Review – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (Fox Searchlight/Film 4) Cert 15, 115 mins Catchy title eh? Doesn’t exactly trip off the tongue. When asked what film I was going to see I just cut the title down to “Three Billboards”. It kind of sounds weird when you say “oh yeah I’m off to see Three Billboards…

Big Super Fun Preview 2018 – Jan-June

Would you look at the state of this lot. If I walked into the cinema and they were sat near me I’d turn about quick smart and go see something else. What a bunch of weirdos wearing grins that are about as real as flying badgers. Frankly I don’t know what either of the two…
