Aquaman

So this was not a very good film. I mean, I don’t think I was expecting too much, it is a DC universe flick and apart from Wonder Woman I haven’t had much joy from them. But I had heard semi-good things about this. You know, that it was fun and maybe mindless, but of […]

Hereditary

The best way to see this film is to know nothing in advance. So if you haven’t seen it stop reading now. Although, in fairness I think that that is good advice for any film, the less you know before seeing it the better. You can always rewatch at a later stage if you think […]

Jurassic World: Fallen kingdom

Remember how awesome Jurassic Park was? Remember the reality of the dinosaurs, of the wonder that the audience shared with the characters? Remember the horror and panic as things went wrong? Well, Fallen kingdom has none of that. Honestly, I don’t know how film makers have managed to make dinosaurs so pedestrian and boring. The […]

God’s own country

His mother left a long time ago. It’s just him, his father, and his nan living an isolated life in Yorkshire. He spends his day looking after the […]

Avengers : Infinity War

Given the box office takings I’m guessing you’ve already seen this film. I mean, hasn’t everyone? But nevertheless there shall be no spoilers here, because you just never know do you… If you are a fan of the Marvel ‘verse then you’ll be going to see this I presume, and to be honest you need […]

Iron Man

Rewatched 17th Mar 2018 So, my thoughts on this rewatch are “wow, Stark is a dick, and no Pepper, his behaviour with women is not cool. Not cool at all. Also the little transphobic and homophobic jokes, so not cool. But I still enjoyed it, and I agree with my past self about the importance […]

Annihilation [based on the book]

I’m not quite sure how to start talking about Annihilation. I really liked it. But plot-wise anything I say to blurb it will sound either ridiculous or way too confusing. So as little as possible then… a group of people investigate a strange phenomenon that nobody else has ever returned from. Inside “the shimmer” they […]

The Revenant

Inspired by the novel which was inspired by the true story of Hugh Glass (DiCaprio), a fur trapper who was attacked by a bear and left for dead in the wilderness of frontier America in the 1820s. The Revenant is the story of his incredible journey of endurance back to confront the man who left […]

The hateful eight

Wyoming, just after the US civil war, and bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) is bringing in his prisoner, Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh). He is known as The Hangman, because when a warrant says “dead or alive” he always brings them in alive. His bounties don’t escape the noose. And his current prisoner has […]
