Firstly, I am absolutely fed up of all of the sequels/remakes that Hollywood is currently pumping out. Where has the originality gone? Why cant the ‘geniuses’ that run the great machine think of any interesting concepts? I watched a video the other day of the ‘best’ films coming to cinemas in 2018. Most of them … More Hollywood! Make Richard Laymon’s 1994 Mystery/Thriller In the Dark into a movie!
A short review To be honest, I wasn’t entirely sure how good this film would be. The trailer did intrigue me with a good cast (including Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm and Jon Bernthal to name a few), good music and with Edgar Wright (known for Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz) at its helm but it just seemed … More Baby Driver (2017)

I have half an hour left and although I knew I wasn’t going to love this sequel, I didn’t realise just how bad it was going to be. I … More Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) an extremely informal review
Directed by Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2), this 2017 live-action remake of the 1991 Disney classic shares the same beautiful and magical visuals as the original. I really didn’t want to like this, as I am a huge fan of the original animated motion picture, but I left … More Beauty and the Beast (2017)
(Spoilers ahead!) Renton (Ewan McGregor), Spud (Ewen Bremner), Begbie (Robert Carlyle) and Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller) are back after 20 years apart. Full of the same crude jokes, hilarious friendship and just as explicit as Trainspotting (Danny Boyle, 2016), I was surprised how much I loved this sequel.
