Blu-ray Review: Mississippi Burning

Blu-ray Review: Mississippi Burning

Having first seen this in a GCSE English class during the late ’90s of all places, the stark imagery and shocking content witnessed some 15 years ago has not only stayed with me, but the ideas and opinions illustrated in this true story that took place during the 1960s are particularly relevant today, considering the intense racial issues that engulf...

Review: The Krays – Kill Order

Review: The Krays – Kill Order

Making its way briefly to cinemas prior to its home release, Christopher Matthews’ documentary is astutely timed to tie in with the Tom Hardy-led Legend. But while some may declare the two worthy of a double bill, it’s advisable to see this one after the dramatised version, as it treads the notorious, historical moments of the Krays’ violent and frankly...

Review: Fantastic Four – “a severe regression for comic book hero movies.”

Review: Fantastic Four – “a severe regression for comic book hero movies.”

OK, so were any of us really twitching in our seats in anticipation for another telling of the Fantastic Four? After two disastrous outings starring Jessica Alba et al, it seems like – unless you are Marvel or making a Batman –  you’re doomed to fail. And doomed this project was. (If you wish to connect this as a loose pun to the film’s villain...

Blu-ray review: The Tale of Princess Kaguya

Blu-ray review: The Tale of Princess Kaguya

With Isao Takahata tackling his last ever Studio Ghibli feature and in the wake of Hayao Miyazaki and Toshio Suzuki’s retirement, you’d be forgiven for thinking the worst when considering the future of the famed Japanese animation studio. But fear not. Because these talented individuals, are not gone without a trace. Their mark will forever be...

Blu-ray Review: The Voices

Blu-ray Review: The Voices

Marjane Satrapi’s The Voices is particularly difficult to categorise in the sense that it’s a mishmash of all sorts: comedy, drama, thriller and horror all stapled together in a surreal, edgy package starring Ryan Reynolds. With its emergence during last year’s Cannes Film Festival, The Voices offers a role to one-time hopeful Ryan Reynolds who, to his...

Toy review: Minions

Toy review: Minions

You’d be forgiven for not knowing who or what Minions are if you’ve not got kids or are beyond your teenage years. But then again, DreamWorks’ movie franchise still has the cuteness, appeal and entertainment value to tap in to the adult market, too. With the release of Minions in cinemas this month (the spin-off animation from the Despicable Me series), a...

Blu-ray review: Chappie

Blu-ray review: Chappie

You’ll notice, should you be a follower of director Neill Blomkamp’s career, how the start of Chappie – a tale about a self-aware robot — is awfully familiar to District 9. In fact, it all feels a little too similar, to tell the truth. The opening of Blomkamp’s third feature tries to unlock the memory of watching his 2009 hit, largely because...

Blu-ray Review: Whiplash

Blu-ray Review: Whiplash

As one of 2014’s most discussed films on the festival circuit, Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash was, and still is, the talk of the town for its ferocious and compelling portrayal of a music teacher and his explosive academic relationship with one of his students. J.K. Simmons rules the roost as tyrannous conductor Fletcher at a prestigious music school, where he...
