Top 15 Films SO FAR (2017)

So far this year has been a good year for film, since we are only half way through it and I already have a decent top 15. These films are completely my own opinion and admittedly some are ranked where they are because of sentimental value but this is my list so what you gonna…

The House – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good There is a part of this film where Will Ferrell’s character goes by the name of The Butcher which is probably the best part of the film. That is a good idea in itself and I’d pay to see that in itself. Jason Mantzoukas is the stand out in the film which is weird since…

The Book of Henry – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good If this film is one thing it is unpredictable. From the opening credits you probably think what the film is going to be but it takes turns I never thought it would. One scene in particular involving tap dancing was actually quite tense. Me and my friend were both surprised at how much it…

Baby Driver – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good I heard praise for the soundtrack before I saw the film and thought it couldn’t be as good as everyone says it is. It might not be as good but is utilised so so well. It is one of the best utilised soundtracks ever. Edgar Wright’s direction is flawless. Pretty much all his films…

3 Changes to Improve THE MUMMY (2017)/ THE DARK UNIVERSE 

Introduction If you’ve read my review of The Mummy then you know how I feel about it. Pretty big let down even though I expected nothing. After thinking about where this Dark Universe is headed, I decided to list some changes I’d make to improve the Iron Man of the Dark Universe. 3. Make it…

Silence – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good Andrew Garfield has proven himself to be an oscar worthy actor and he proves it here also. I do think his performance in Hacksaw Ridge was more entertaining but his performance here was more raw and brutal. The cinematography on display here is great with a great look at 1600s Japan. Grand shots and…

Gifted – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good McKenna Grace is the star of the film and is herself a star in the making. She was adorable and charming and totally believable with very high level acting chops. Comedy that is funny is difficult to achieve in films but this film does it wonderfully, never sacrificing the story for jokes, just letting…

The Mummy (2017) – Mini Review (Spoiler Free) 

Good There was one great scene in a plane that I knew before going into the film that it was going to be my favourite part of the film. It was. It looked great even though it ended with an odd cut but it was the highlight of the film. Other than that… Bad Tom…

I Am Heath Ledger – Mini Review 

Good The documentation of Heath Ledger’s early years of acting was especially interesting. A side to an actors life of which we hardly ever see was revealed to us. Watching how this boy got into acting and what he did to get there was awe inspiring to watch; leaving home with nothing but a dream…

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good Charlie Hunam is an actor who I don’t mind. I haven’t really seen him in anything other than Pacific Rim and I’ve watched like the first 4 episodes of Sons of Anarchy so yeah. For this film, I’ll give him the fact that he looks the part but maybe because of his current acting…

Alien: Isolation – Mini Game Review (Spoiler Free)

Good The tone Alien: Isolation sets is masterful. From the moment it starts I was immersed and knew at least it had captured the look of the films, specifically the first Alien. The ships were exactly how I remembered them in the films and it was fun walking around the rooms the characters from the…

Life – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good The opening to this film is really solid. It establishes the emptiness of space as well as its beauty and unknown terrors. It was really similar to alien with similar sound effects on the space station. Is that good? They didn’t go too far with it so sure. Set the audience up with familiarity…
