Happy Death Day 2U – Review

“HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U” Happy Death Day was a real anomaly when it came out. It was a surprise hit especially at the box office, which was surprising considering that horror films don’t tend to make a lot of money

“ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL” Alita: Battle Angel is very much a project that’s been in development hell. Cameron has been talking about this film for nearly two decades and he has been wanting to make it for quite some time. Silent

Glass – Review

“Glass” I make it no secret that I’m not a fan of M. Night Shyamalan, though with that being said, in the time since I have become a semi-professional film critic, his work has actually really improved. I reviewed The

The Upside – Review

“THE UPSIDE” The Upside if a rather interesting film altogether which has been advertised as based on a true story which has not been entirely accurate. It is technically based on a true story but is also a remake of

“MARY POPPINS RETURNS” So, you’d think, despite the fact that Disney is known for sequels they would have by now got around to following up on Mary Poppins, considering the fact it did have sequel novels and other stories to

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – Review

“SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE” We now live in an age where there has now been 7 Spider-Man movies gone to cinemas, that is insane. It’s even actually caused people to ask the question, has there been too much Spider-Man over

Robin Hood (2018) – Review

“ROBIN HOOD (2018)” What is it with Robin Hood films never quite working? Aside from the Disney one I’ve never heard of one that’s received no source of criticism. In fact, the one probably with the biggest cult status at
