A young woman investigates her sister’s suicide. Cluttered Singapore-set horror pic, mashing up elements from Ring and The Exorcist. Plenty of jump-scares, too many ideas (albeit some of them interesting), but not much sense, and some weak-sauce acting.
An expensive cast struggle to find any laughs in this ‘save the business’ style comedy. More chuckles than belly laughs and not enough substance to be clever. The odd one liner does not a comedy make! 😒
A recently-widowed banker reassembles his life. Slight finding-yourself-again flick that does the usual things (wonky almost-romance, child mentor companion), except in a somewhat half-hearted way. A movie built around an idea for a single central scene.
A Hollywood fixer’s day from hell. Delirious Coen Brothers’ farce, affectionately spoofing 1950s movies, while spinning another of their noirish kidnapping-goes-wrong yarns. Tons of fun, with everyone concerned clearly having a great time. Recommended.
Humans and renegade orcs band together to save a world. Lovingly-made, detailed, and well-shot for 3D, this is nevertheless a standard greenscreen-heavy sword and sorcery flick which offers little by way of originality in either its characters or story.
Hilarious comedy action side swipe at a congested superhero genre. Great casting, script and action combine with fantastic VFX. The humour drifts into smutty territory, but easily one of the best superhero films to date. Excellent stuff 🙂
Incredible looking and lots of fun from start to finish with a ‘misfit gang save the universe’ comic book plot. A strong cast, funny dialogue and enough thrills and action for everyone. This sits easily at the top of the Marvel movie list! Fab! 🙂
