A strong central performance from Theron, holds this delicate comedy/drama together well. Funny insights and scripting punch holes in notions of motherhood and pregnancy while an interesting if somewhat familiar story unfolds. Good stuff!
Fantasy film surrounding a troubled girl in an insane asylum struggling with reality. Heavily over-stylised, CGI laden, deeply misogynistic, plotless and rooted in fetishistic objectification. A teenage-gamers wet dream! Even Synder fans may balk at this!
Quite bonkers Seven Swords/Avengers-style kung-fu start of a saga movie. Plot is harder to follow than usual, but lush visuals and fight scenes coupled with some laughs keep the pace flying along. A step above the usual, and worth a watch!
Creepy, intriguing and oddly disturbing, found footage/paranormal film based around the death of a teenager and the events leading up to it. Told through documentary style footage and assembled bits and pieces. Exceptionally well executed. Watch it
Johnson in a Die Hard-ish meets Towering Inferno-ish sci-fi-ish fusion. Lots of bangs, oddly over complex plot. Some effective moments with a subtle central performance hindered by the usual indestructibility of its central cast. Fiery OTT fun!
The ‘modern’ MMA fighting Lara Croft embarks on mission to find her lost father and prevent global catastrophe. Terribly dull film that drags its lead heels. Spritely new Lara; boring everything else. Drink strong coffee before watching!
Roth continues to remake films badly. This remake of a crap 1974 original sees cardboard Bruce Willis mumbling through a film lacking in any conviction. Occasional gore is mostly lost in one predicable shoot out after another. Piss poor at best!
