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 […]

Blade Runner (The final cut) [based on the book]

I know that at some point in the past I have watched Blade Runner. I do not know what version it was. I also am very aware that it has become a huge pop culture reference so that my memories of the film have most likely been altered by that fact. But I do think […]

Atomic Blonde [based on the book]

I really wanted to love this film. It has Charlize Theron kicking ass and looking awesome. Its got cool action scenes. Unfortunately it just isn’t a great film, it isn’t even a very good one. It is an average enough film that goes on too long and only does what loads of other films have […]

Catfight

From the title of this film you’re probably going to expect some bitchiness and maybe hairpulling. Well you get that, plus a whole heap of brutal brutal fighting. Veronica and Ashley were friends at college, they haven’t seen each other in years when they bump into one another at a party. Their meeting does not […]

Logan

[imdb_movie_detail title=”Logan” detail=”plot”] Logan has always been my favourite X-men1 . Not that I’ve read a huge number of the comics, I haven’t, but in the way back far off days of my childhood I did watch the cartoons. And back then Logan would usually have been my head-fanfic character, followed by Storm, and then […]

Room

Imagine a room. Eleven feet by eleven. Bed. Bath. Wardrobe. Table. Chair. Rocker. Stove. Television. No windows. Only Skylight. Door is locked. Always. Imagine this is your home. The only home you’ve ever known. Meet Jack. It’s his birthday. He’s five. Jack lives in Room with Ma. Jack has never been Outside. I’ve been meaning […]

Tony and Susan

Fifteen years ago, Susan Morrow left her first husband Edward Sheffield, an unpublished writer. Now, she’s enduring middle class suburbia as a doctor’s wife, when out of the blue she receives a package containing the manuscript of her ex-husband’s first novel. He writes asking her to read the book; she was always his best critic, […]

Blood Father

An ex-convict (Mel Gibson) and his estranged daughter (Erin Moriarty) go on the run from her drug-dealing boyfriend (Diego Luna) and his vicious cartel. This film is pretty much what I expected it to be from hearing about it. Mel plays Link, a man with a past, a man who has made many many mistakes, […]
