Film Review: Dr. Strange

Hey, a combined Medical Bullshit on TV and Film Review at the same time! What’s next, me reviewing The Good Doctor or Scrubs or Grey’s Anatomy? Hahahahahahaha. OK. I love Marvel. I love Picnic Bandersnatch. I love superpower movies. And this one has superpowers that are so psychedelic it’s mesmerising. I could watch that all…

Film Review: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tells No Tales

Growing up, I was a big fan of the hilarious swashbuckling laugh fest that was Pirates of the Caribbean. At the end of the initial trilogy, it was obvious (well, it was obvious by Dead Man’s Chest) the story was running out of fodder and the laughs more and more forced. POTC 5 was no…

Film Review: Thor: Ragnarok

I love Marvel films. I love superheroes. I love Thor. But I have to say this… how do I phrase it nicely… What the fuck did I just watch?! Contains spoilers, duh.

Film Review: Murder on the Orient Express

I love a good whodunnit movie. With this all-star cast adaptation of a well-loved murder mystery classic, I had great expectations — and wasn’t disappointed Contains spoilers.

Film Review: Cinderella

Disney animated films were very much a part of my childhood, so I always have intentions to watch these live-action adaptations which seemed to be all the rage recently. I’ve heard great things from the acting to the costumes, so I was looking forward to watching this during a 13-hour flight. Contains spoilers, duh.

Film Review: The Greatest Showman

I’ll admit: I’m biased. I love movie musicals. I love Hugh Jackman. I love Hugh Jackman’s singing. I love Zac Efron. I had already heard the soundtrack for this film and knew all the songs word-for-word before I even sat down at the cinema. So I went in, fully expecting to fall in love with the…

Film Review: Bridget Jones’s Baby

I liked a bit of Bridget Jones back when the first two films came out: they were funny, horrifically cringeworthy, and altogether a lighthearted comedy that could be enjoyed with girlfriends over cups of tea. I’m usually over-critical of the blundering, dimwitted Jones, and yet at the same time I do enjoy watching it. Complex…

Film Review: Logan

I’m a big fan of X-men and Marvel. I love super powers. Heck, one of my novels was basically inspired by X-men crossed into power rangers. So when Logan came out, I was very excited. “Logan” takes the story on quite a different tone to the previous ones: no mass extermination, no victims of feat…

Film Review: Annabelle

I confess, dolls scare the freaking Jesus out of me. I don’t know if it’s some hidden childhood trauma of being eaten by a porcelain doll when I was a foetus or having my mind curdled by a clown at my twelfth birthday (neither of which happened, by the way), the glass doll eyes that…

Film Review: Wonder Woman

I’ve heard great things about it. My friend Leon saw it and raved about it for days. I love super powers and powerful women. So Wonder Woman is my cup of tea. Contains spoilers, duh.

Film Review: Train to Busan

Train to Busan is not a film I would normally watch. I had seen plenty of zombie films (X of the living dead, I Am Legend, 30 X later, Dawn of the Dead etc.) and played video games pertaining to that too, so another film in that genre wouldn’t pique my attention. On top of…

Film Review: Jurassic World

Dinosaurs are cool. Dinosaurs are awesome. Jurassic Park was a good portion of my childhood, so this new film is going to be amazing. Right? If disbelief is worth £1 per “WTF” moment I might be stinking rich, but eh, I enjoyed it. Contains spoilers, duh.
