Lavish live action remake of classic animation. Effective enough, when it follows the original, more lacklustre when it deviates. Will Smith makes a good genie, but there is a lingering feeling that its all been done better before.
A family discover a mysterious burial ground with hidden powers of reanimation. A well adapted movie which ably captures the horrific nastiness from the novel and plays nothing for laughs. Grim enough for a classic ‘bleak-end’ and worth your time!
A programmer ends up trapped inside an arcade game world. Visually impressive, with some pioneering CGI, the film struggles everywhere else with a limp story and a script written in techno babble.
Painfully slow and contrived thriller about a family surviving an alien invasion. The precious few effective scenes are overwhelmed by a plot and script riddled with holes and some awful acting.
A clever late 70s psychological thriller about a man convinced he can cause deaths and disasters.
A clever late 70s psychological thriller about a man convinced he can cause deaths and disasters. With a chilling central performance from Richard Burton that adds real weight to the film, this remains a great film with some startling visual effects for the time.
Slow sci-fi where a young couple hire a realistic robot helper and get more than they bargained for. Tropes of ‘Ex Machina’ aside, this film meanders along never quite getting very interesting. Understated to the point you stop caring. Not Great.
Amazing film detailing the rise and fall of the gangster led Las Vegas Casino empire. Told through three distinct lenses. A true tour de force of editing and direction that struggles here and there with its own morality. A must see!
Intense, terrifying and brilliant, this film finds a family terrorised by their doppelgängers. A genuinely innovative horror from ‘Get Out’ director Peele. Go see it!
Hiccup discovers a second Night Fury dragon and is forced to make some tough choices in this final part of the trilogy. Though not as funny or as dramatic as the previous films, this remains a solid sequel with great animation and real family fun. Definitely one to watch!
