MOVIE REVIEW: Bleed for This

2016 seemed to be a good year for sports: The Olympics. Yes, that was very good, wasn’t it? Uum…Conor McGregor saying things, he’s a funny guy, isn’t he? Err…England winning the Six Nations…and…well…I’m sure there was a lot of other stuff…football stuff. Yeah, there was probably a lot of that. Let’s say that a lot

FILM REVIEW: Passengers

Passengers is a curious film. If I asked you the question: ‘What goes plink, plink, fizz?’ Your brain would likely whir and buzz for a few seconds like an old, lumbering Windows ’95 PC booting up, before your mouth receptacle flapped open and replied something derivative along the lines of, ‘Alka-Seltzer,’ or ‘Berocca’ – some

FILM REVIEW: Nocturnal Animals

Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals left me shaken, staggering into the falling night, somewhat disheveled as if I’d been either fast asleep or got into a fight during the movie.

FILM REVIEW: Army of One

In the lead up to Christmas, we’re once again inundated with consumer marketplace tat that we don’t need and don’t want. There are the inevitable Christmas DFS ads that will be rammed down our throats every twenty minutes during Coronation Street, proclaiming that the SALE IS NOW ON! The actors involved will bellow at us

FILM REVIEW: Arrival

Arrival is the next Science Fiction blockbuster on the block – or so I thought. Much in the same way that the trailer for Inception chose to focus on its more Hollywood elements: explosions, spectacle, conflict, so too the trailer for Arrival is something of a red-herring. Arrival is science fiction, but in the true

FILM REVIEW: I, Daniel Blake

Welcome to Broken Britain 2016 We open on a black screen. What follows next is an increasingly frustrating phone call between Daniel Blake (played by comedian Dave Johns) and an apathetic-sounding healthcare worker, monotonously reeling off a generic tick-box list as to whether he can lift his arms above his head and other basic motor

FILM REVIEW: The Girl On The Train

A slow and boring ride If you’ve ever been drunk on the commute (guilty) you’ll agree that time comes to a standstill and as soon as you find a seat to park your drunken ass, the warm fuzz from too many beers will turn into a tedious mix of trying to look sober, staying awake
