The Guest Review

Thursday, 28 August 2014 21:46

As if their previous collaborations A Horrible Way to Die and You're Next didn't already cement director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett as the kings of genre throwback, then their latest effort The Guest certainly does. Wearing its Carpenter and Cameron influences on its sleeve, the film is a slow-burning, witty homage to the thrillers of the '80s that doesn't descend into the kind of obvious pastiche that has become increasingly prevalent in recent years.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For Review

Tuesday, 26 August 2014 21:03

No sooner had Robert Rodriguez's Sin City hit cinemas back in 2005 than people started discussing sequels and given he had the rest of Frank Miller's novels to work with as well as a propensity for turning out films quickly and cheaply, it seemed like a no-brainer that a sequel would arrive sooner rather than later.

Hector and the Search for Happiness Review

Wednesday, 20 August 2014 21:12

Hector and the Search for Happiness, a whimsical travelogue based on French self-help author Francois Lelord's novel of the same name, is Simon Pegg's latest stab at being a conventional leading man. Much like other efforts like How to Lose Friends and Alienate People and Run Fatboy Run, Hector is another big misstep for an actor who should be so likeable but more often than not just comes across as smug.

The Inbetweeners 2 Review

Monday, 18 August 2014 20:15

After the first film adaptation of the immensely popular Channel 4 sitcom The Inbetweeners broke box office records in the UK back in 2011, a sequel was inevitable, no matter how many times the cast and creators said it'd never happen. So after a dreadful marketing campaign and the uneasy feeling that a cynical cash-in was on the way, it's a pleasant surprise that The Inbetweeners 2 is a sequel with more ambition and style than its predecessor.

Hercules Review

Wednesday, 06 August 2014 20:56

Brett Ratner is a director that isn't held in particularly high regard. At his worst, he's capable of putting a beloved franchise on the skids for a few years but at his best, he is a competent director who can turn out a solidly entertaining film. His latest effort is swords-and-sandals actioner Hercules, a loose adaptation of Steve Moore's graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars.

Guardians of the Galaxy Review

Monday, 28 July 2014 00:00

Despite an overriding sense that Marvel Studios is intent on sticking to safe blockbusters that fit an increasingly formulaic house style – and recent news that further backs up that notion - 2014 has actually been a year of refreshing projects for the studio. Coming off the back of 70's espionage throwback Captain America: The Winter Soldier is Guardians of the Galaxy, a fun, fast-paced space opera written and directed by James Gunn, the man behind twisted dark comedies Slither and Super.

Boyhood Review

Tuesday, 22 July 2014 19:32

While Texan director Richard Linklater has done his best work following his characters doing very little but living their lives, from the twenty-somethings in Slacker to the teens of Dazed and Confused or the lovers in his Before trilogy, none of it really compares to the achievement that is Boyhood, a stunning and intimate portrait of life itself.

Begin Again Review

Sunday, 20 July 2014 13:35

After his heartfelt modern musical Once became a surprise hit, winning an Oscar and inspiring a Broadway musical, Irish director John Carney fell off the map with a series of minor efforts that failed to make any impact. He's now back with Begin Again, another film that focuses on lost people who find a connection through music, only this time it's a big, glossy Hollywood romcom loaded with big names and pop star cameos.
