Has GAME OF THRONES lost its THING? (Spoilers)

Introduction Season 7 Episode 6 was a mess. I did not like it. It put doubt in my mind that the show had lost what used to make it great. Over the week I had “recovering” from the episode, I realised that it’s one episode in an entire television show that I don’t like. In…

A Ghost Story – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good If there is one word I could use to describe this film it world be beautiful. The cinematography on display was magnificent. It was a gorgeous looking film and really relied on this in order to keep us engaged in its story. The music also played a key role as the film is basically…

Dunkirk – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good Films often rely on the difference between loud and quiet moments to have maximum impact on its audience. Dunkirk proves that consistency in a moment can create a far more impactful experience. As in, this film is a non stop, tension filled cinematic. experience. I have heard people complaining that it takes a while…

The Graduate – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good I’ve seen this film before, but that was before my skills as a film goer had been enhanced, now on my second viewing with these new skills I have recognised how great Dustin Hoffman is as Ben. My favourite performances are the subtle ones, with small characteristics building on a character and Hoffman does…

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…
