3 Changes to Improve WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES (Spoilers)

Introduction I really liked War For The Planet Of The Apes, though it currently sits on the bottom when ranking the trilogy and I found it overall underwhelming, it has made its way into my top ten and I really want to watch it again. Nevertheless, I do think it would benefit from some small…

War For The Planet Of The Apes – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good The one thing I loved about this film was the score. Some scenes are carried just by the score itself and they were beautiful. The score also highlights moments of dread with the score contrasting what is on screen very well. It’s a given that Andy Serkis would deliver a great performance as Caesar…

Spider-Man: Homecoming – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good Civil War was an overall disappointing film for me. Yes, I’m in the minority but the hype just didn’t pay off. Since then I haven’t liked any Marvel release and they’ve all been on a lull since Guardians 1 to me anyway. I did not like Tom Holland in Civil War. I liked Tom…

5 Great Action Scenes

Introduction Action scenes in modern films are often poor with many filmmakers opting for the now stereotypical and “easy” shaky-cam technique to hide how poor the action really is. I and many other film buffs would much rather see a well crafted action sequence than one hidden behind cheap filmmaking. This is why I present…

It Comes At Night – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good The directing was very haunting and kept me immersed in the world the filmmakers created. The lighting is to be praised above the direction, never giving the audience privileged viewing, always having us pay attention to see anything. The performances are really solid, especially to the end of the second act and the third….

Revisiting ASSASSIN’S CREED: UNITY (Spoiler Free Review)

Good Arno was a surprisingly likeable protagonist. I’m surprised I haven’t heard more love for the character as I would put him above the Frye twins who people talk about a lot. In my opinion, Arno is the closest thing we’ve had to Ezio since Ezio. The character customisation was simple but for some reason…

The Office US – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good Most of the characters on the show are really really good and all work really well together. Obviously Steve Carell is amazing and Raiin Wilson has created one of the best comedic characters I have ever seen. Watching Jim and Pam was one of the greatest things about this show. I loved watching them…

5 Video Games that would make Great Films

Introduction Many video games have been given the on screen adaptation but none of them have gotten the one they deserve. The most recent one being Assassin’s Creed which I didn’t mind but can admit is primarily bad and just doesn’t capture what the games are about. So I thought I’d list (in no particular…

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…
