Tooth Fairy

We REALLY need to stop watching films just because they’ve got The Rock in them. Well, no, that’s not true. At least he didn’t get a khaki shirt on and stand around looking pissed...

Jojo Rabbit 0

Jojo Rabbit

What a great little film! Although it’s pretty easy to see why it sat on top of a screenplay blacklist for years (getting made only when Taika Waititi became one of the hottest properties...

Ghostbusters: Afterlife

Nowhere near as bad as people might have you believe. Nostalgia’s a funny thing, though.  Seeing a film make a nod to a TV show or film series seems reasonable, but seeing a slightly...

Vacation (2015)

Baywatch (Extended cut)

Queenpins

Don’t Look Up

The film that everyone’s calling “the most insightful bit of satire in years”, and which the critics are complaining about – I think it was just excellent.  Some great performances by A-listers in non-blockbuster...

Love Hard 0

Love Hard

Another christmas film for the “it’s shit, but I like it” column – the usual utterly ludicrous premise and totally unbelievable plot development, and a punchline telegraphed loudly by the film’s title.  But, it...
