    The Professor and the Madman


    Pretty much all movies set in the 1800’s don’t excite me. Not to say I can’t enjoy them, and I was a bit excited for this because Penn and Gibson are two of my favourite actors.

    This looks nice and is shot well and is surprisingly quite violent. I was surprised that Gibson could do such a good Scottish accent.
    All the performances were fine, Eddie Marsan was in this and he did a good job. 

    My main problem with…

  • Jumanji



    These special effects probably looked great in 1995. Still this is so much fun, and pretty scary as well not gonna lie.

  • Tumbledown



    Combines grief, comedy and romance really well. Sudeikis and Hall have great chemistry. But overall the plot felt dry and the ending seemed sappy.

  • What Maisie Knew

    What Maisie Knew


    This really worked for me, and really grew on me a throughout the film as well. It started off with a slightly confusing tone for me. The whole movie is based on the views of Maisie, who I thought was fine in the film. The person who I really liked in the film was Alexander Skarsgård, he had great chemistry with the little girl and really brightened up the whole movie. The girl who played Margo was good once Skarsgård…

  • Laid in America

    Laid in America

    Uncomfortable to watch, but probably better than Caspar Lee’s content.

  • The Bourne Ultimatum

    The Bourne Ultimatum


    Good ending to the Bourne trilogy. This has great action throughout and that long scene where Bourne is directing the journalist through the train station is one of my favourite action movie scenes ever.

    Despite the great action in this movie, again I got a headache from Greengrass‘s use of shaky cam. There was some great fight sequences (Bourne vs Desh) which would have been unreal if I could see what was fully going on. 

    The movie again gets a…

  • Drunk Parents

    Drunk Parents


    This took me about 3 weeks to get through. Awful from start to finish, Alec Baldwin is an actor who I really like and here he is laughably bad, and Salma Hayek is terrible as usual. 

    None of the jokes work, half of them about pedophilia, the whole story is just terrible. Will Ferrell has a five minute cameo in this movie which I sort of enjoyed but that was it.

    Overall Drunk Parents has a terrible story, terrible acting, terrible jokes and I have no doubt that it will be one of my least favourite movies of the year.

  • Mean Creek

    Mean Creek


    I’m so happy that I’ve found this gem. I don’t even know what to say, this movie is amazing. 

    The actors work so well together and are so believeable in every scene. The whole story is intriguing from start to finish, and there is great emotion shown through great dialogue and overall this is just an incredibly shot film. 

    And no I’ve never seen Drake and Josh, I wasn’t rich enough as a child to have Nickelodeon.

    I can not adise you enough to go and watch this.

  • Burnt



    Pretty amusing throughout, although the ending does feel SO rushed. Cooper is likeable as Gordon Ramsey but I feel the character lacked development as we really know little about his past apart from the fact that he was a great chef who was on drugs. 

    Weird supporting cast as well, shoutout to Simon’s Dad from the inbetweeners who unfortunately only got about 3 seconds of screen time.

    The Lonely Island Presents: The Unauthorized Bash Brothers Experience


    I’m not sure what this was, it made me laugh about twice.

  • Deepwater Horizon

    Deepwater Horizon


    Edges out Patriot’s Day as my favourite Berg/Wahlberg biopic. This is a great disaster movie, with likeable characters, especially Wahlberg and Russell, and of course Malkovich playing the dick. 

    Berg has made a masterpiece here, the shots and sound used are fantastic, and the emotion displayed between characters without even using words speaks wonders for the direction.

  • Knocked Up

    Seth Rogen is just too likeable
