The Grinch (2018) – Review

“THE GRINCH” Me and Dr Seuss adaptations don’t get along. That’s not too say I don’t like Dr Seuss, his books are fine, in fact some of them have actually held up remarkably well. The problem is that, well, his

Mirai – Review

“MIRAI” Mirai is the latest film from director Mamoru Hosoda, who is one of my favourite directors. I could go on about him and his career but I devoted a portion of my upcoming book ‘The Nerd Consultant’s Guide to

Bohemian Rhapsody – Review

“BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY” Bohemian Rhapsody hasn’t been without its controversy. The first factor of this was this film’s gone between directors through the space of filming. The film was originally held by X-Men director Bryan Singer who left the project half

Halloween (2018) – Review

“HALLOWEEN (2018)” Halloween (1978) is one of my favourite films. I am a huge fan of the original film, which not only started the slasher genre but also set the template for how all these films were going to appear

First Man – Review

“FIRST MAN” First Man is the first bio pic to detail the life and career of Neil Armstrong, who famously was the first man to walk on the surface of the moon. It comes to us from director Damien Chazelle

Venom – Review

“VENOM” Venom is a project that has been around for quite a while. He is one of the most popular villains in Spiderman’s books. I’ve always kind of liked Venom as a villain mainly because he was kind of this

The Death of Superman – Review

“THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN” It’s a tradition round here that I review all the DC animated films that come out every year and for the fourth year in a row I decided to finish off that selection. This year has

The House with a Clock in Its Walls – Review

“THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS” The House with a Clock in Its Walls is a film that took me off guard in several factors. I actually didn’t know it was coming out for one, and on the

The Predator – Review

“THE PREDATOR” The Predator is the latest in what should be a long line of movies, but The Predator franchise despite its pedigree of being one of the films that help put Arnold Schwarzenegger on the map has surprisingly had

The Nun – Review

“THE NUN” The Nun is the latest film in the Conjuring set of movies, having two main entries and two spin offs with the Annabel films. I have never really been a fan of the Conjuring movies as I’ve commented

Searching (2018) – Review

“SEARCHING” Searching is the directorial debut of Aneesh Chaganty and is his first feature film to date. The film did very well at The Sundance film festival and when trailers came out for it, it suggested a conceiving concept. The

Slender Man – Review

“SLENDER MAN” Slender Man is essentially a modern myth that was created for a photoshop competition. That’s really all there is to him. A tonne of people claim there is some reality to him but, no, investigation has found he

Christopher Robin – Review

“CHRISTOPHER ROBIN” Not to be confused with the film Goodbye Christopher Robin which I reviewed last year. Disney already had their own film that works, with them still retaining the right of this specific image of Winnie the Pooh. The

Ant-Man and the Wasp – Review

“ANT-MAN AND THE WASP” So, after the juggernaut that was Avengers Infinity War it feels rather much a downgrade to suddenly be heading into another Ant-Man film, but we’ve got it here now. I was actually a big fan of

Hotel Artemis – Review

“HOTEL ARTEMIS” Look, this is going to be a short one as I had a technical hiccup and I was rushed for time so this is going to be a very quick review. ‘Hotel Artemis’ is written and directed by

The Incredibles 2 – Review

“THE INCREDIBLES 2” Yes, I am aware I was supposed to be reviewing Sicario 2, but a combination of scheduling conflicts prevented me from doing this, plus I had no idea that we would be getting Incredibles 2 around this
