Dope

Dope Review – It’s a 90’s Hip-Hop Homage Y’all

As a 90’s kid myself and despite having a very varied taste of music, I was a big rap and hip-hop fan back then so it seemed Dope would be right up my street. Would it be Dope? And if so in which sense of the word? Dope is the story of three young geeky…Read more Dope Review – It’s a 90’s Hip-Hop Homage Y’all

The Road Within

The Road Within Review – A Comedy Drama With Standout Performances

I imagine heading to a studio with a script about a man with Tourette’s, another with OCD and a woman with an eating disorder is going to be a hard sell. Getting that film made and then distributed is probably even more difficult. Gren Wells managed just that with The Road Within. First time director…Read more The Road Within Review – A Comedy Drama With Standout Performances

Deadpool

Deadpool Review – Motor Mouth Hits The Big Screen

The Ryan Reynolds starring, and produced, much delayed big screen adaptation of the Marvel comic finally hits the big screen in the UK. It’s been breaking box office records and the previews and spin-off videos have been hitting hard and fast. But the real question is, is it any good? Reynolds stars as Wade, an…Read more Deadpool Review – Motor Mouth Hits The Big Screen

Diablo

Diablo Review – Scott Eastwood Takes On A Western

Imagine being Clint Eastwood’s son. I imagine on the one hand that’s amazing whilst on the other…well…I can imagine ol’ Clint being a bit of a stickler at times, to say the least. Apparently Scott is sent over 50 scripts per month (!) that are westerns. Out of them all, he chose this one citing…Read more Diablo Review – Scott Eastwood Takes On A Western

Anomalisa

Anomalisa Review – Charlie Kaufman Ask Who Are You?

Apart from the TV movie How and Why this is Kaufman’s first writing and directing gig since his 2008 film Synecdoche, New York. It’s also a Kickstarter funded project and is completely done in stop-motion animation, sometimes quite advanced stop-motion animation. There are just three actors in Anomalisa; David Thewlis (Harry Potter, The Theory of…Read more Anomalisa Review – Charlie Kaufman Ask Who Are You?

Sheeba, Baby

Sheeba, Baby Review – It’s a Time of Flares and Big Moustaches

It’s the 70’s baby and things are swinging, flares are flaring, moustaches are large, shirts are loud and hairstyles…well, best we forget them. Also around at this time were a whole series of movies that became known as Blaxploitation. Sheeba, Baby isn’t one of the best known of these, but is it worth watching? Pam…Read more Sheeba, Baby Review – It’s a Time of Flares and Big Moustaches

Lazer Team

Lazer Team Review – Should You Indiegogo and See This Film?

Never judge a book by the cover is the old saying. One that I’ve ignored to my peril on numerous occasions. Judging a film by its title, short clips and/or poster(s), whilst not as snappy, can bring about the same problems. Did it here? The premise of Lazer Team won’t surprise or amaze you, it’s…Read more Lazer Team Review – Should You Indiegogo and See This Film?
