    Aliens

    ★★★★★

    When anyone asks me “what’s your favourite film” there’s no stopping to think about it, no hesitation. The answer is easy. 

    It’s Aliens.

    I watched this movie for the first time when I was 8 years old (cheers mum!) and will never forget the experience. By the end of the film, I had so much adrenaline pumping through my tiny body that I was red hot and sweating like crazy. I had to go stand outside in my PJ’s in…

    The Reckoning

    This is by far the worst film I’ve watched in as long as I can remember. Even worse than Demonic by Neil Blomkamp (another massive fall from grace by a previously accomplished director). 

    There’s lots wrong with this movie (it’s too long, it’s boring, the story is pointless) but the performance by Charlotte Kirk is what drags it into the abyss. Whatever she’s doing on screen is some sort of parody of acting. I mean, it’s like Tommy Wiseau levels…

    ★★★½

    I’m not a big Shymalan fan, but this was surprisingly good.

Imagine you’re going to see a feature length Twilight Zone episode and I’d say you’re more on the right track.

    The simple but intriguing premise…

    The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

    ★★★

    The first Conjuring movie was a revelation and reminded us all what a truly well made mainstream horror movie could aspire to. The sequels and spin offs however have kind of veered into the goofy, hokey and downright terrible in some cases.

    Thankfully the 3rd ‘mainline’ movie in the series gets things a little bit more back on track by keeping the focus on the Warrens and giving them a pretty good (on the whole) mystery to unravel. The story…

    The Matrix Resurrections

    ★★★★½

    This is a Matrix film for the kind of people that actually enjoyed the ending of LOST, or think A New Nightmare is one of the best Freddy Krueger films, or that Ridley Scott was actually on to something REALLY good with Prometheus and Covenant…
