A quirky film about two ‘friends’ whose odd relationship unravels. Slick execution and two great performances mask an, at times, stilted script and some leaden plotting. That said, there is a lot to like here and some great ad-lib dialogue lends a comedy strength.
A delicate and moving bio-pic highlighting Freddie Mercury and Queen’s journey from humble beginnings to Live Aid. Incredibly constructed, stunning performances and a reminder of how tragic losing a character like Freddie was. Beautiful!
Another comic adaptation from Marvel as space symbiote Venom merges with a troubled Tom Hardy to fight the greater good. A misfire, that can’t measure its comedy and lacks cohesion. It’s neither funny nor likeable.
A Predator reboot movie mess directed by Shane Black. Too many ideas, with a cast that makes no sense in an incoherent and studio ‘enhanced’ plot. Edited with garden shears, this rumbles between comedy and action, never being effective at either.
Dumb but fun U.S. take on Kung Fu action. Kurt Russell leads a solid cast on a quest to rescue a damsel in distress. Though a tad dated, plenty here to like and doesn’t take itself too seriously.
Superior horror about a family whose past reveals gruesome secrets. Very creepy with great central performances and some truly great scares. It’s pace and tone might frustrate some, but it had me glued to it! Watch this!
Crap anthology of tragically non-scary horror stories. Poor direction, bad 70s Tales of the Unexpected acting, derisory final act that attempts a plot twist that doesn’t work. Avoid this rubbish.
