Deadpool (2016) Review

“Now, I’m about to do to you what Limp Bizkit did to music in the late 90s.” Deadpool, as a comic book character, is perhaps a little overrated. Over the past few years it seems he has become absolutely everyone’s favourite character, his face is on everything and you can’t go to a convention without […]

The Nice Guys (2016) Review

“You’re the world’s worst detectives.” The Nice Guys is Shane Black’s latest irreverent buddy movie, starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe as two very different crime solvers drawn into the same mystery. Like nearly all of the previous films Black’s written and/or directed (Lethal Weapon, The Last Boy Scout, The Long Kiss Goodnight, Kiss Kiss Bang […]

¡Three Amigos! Blu-ray review

“You dirt-eating piece of slime, you scum-sucking pig, you son of a motherless goat!” The fact that ¡Three Amigos! was not a hit when it was released in 1986 should come as a surprise. Here we have a film with three of the most loved SNL alum in the starring roles; Steve Martin, Chevy Chase […]

100 Words or Less – The Voices

Title – The Voices  Released – 2015 Director – Marjane Satrapi Starring – Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick. Review – The Voices is likely to be the strangest film you’ve seen in a long time. A black comedy of the most morbid variety, Ryan Reynolds plays Jerry. A man who hears voices that occasionally tell him to kill. Reynolds […]

100 Words or Less – 3000 Miles to Graceland

Title – 3000 Miles to Graceland Released – 2001 Director – Demian Lichtenstein Starring – Kurt Russell, Kevin Costner, Courteney Cox, Christian Slater Review – In a word: unpleasant. 3KMTG is weird, horrible in every way yet exceptionally entertaining. The cast is amazing, the action is hyperviolent and explosive and the Elvis impersonations are spot-on. It’s over the top and unsure what […]

100 Word or Less – The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course

Title – The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course Released – 2002 Director – John Stainton Starring – Steve Irwin, Terri Irwin, David Wenham Review- The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course is a weird movie. Half wildlife documentary (basically Steve Irwin’s show from the early 2000’s) and half zany spy thriller. And y’know what? It sort of works. Steve Irwin plays a fictional […]

100 Words or Less – Once a Thief

Title – Once a Thief Released – 1991 Director – John Woo Starring – Chow Yun-Fat, Leslie Cheung, Cherie Chung, Kenneth Tsang. Review – A ‘crime caper’ by John Woo. Like The Killer or Hard Boiled but with more comedy. Comedy which often fails to translate. But even the failed jokes are hilarious in their own way. Seeing Chow Yun-Fat throwing a baby is funny […]

The Lego Movie Review

“Honey, where are my pants?” “Everything is awesome! Everything is cool when you’re part of a team!” The Lego Movie is indeed EXTREMELY awesome. It really could have gone either way, but I can safely say this is an excellent movie and most definitely is not The Adventures of Clutch Powers. It’s been a long time since […]
