Movie Reviews

Movie Review – Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile review. Phenomenal performance by Zac Efron, but the movie plays like a visual enactment of a Wiki entry.

Movie Review – Toy Story 4

Toy Story 4 movie review. Yet another hilarious, sublime triumph for Pixar’s most celebrated series.

Movie Review – Murder Mystery (Film)

Murder Mystery (Film) review. This is not another mind-numbing Sandler comedy. Actually, it’s quite enjoyable to watch.

Movie Review – Men in Black: International

Men in Black: International movie review. A lifeless, haphazard exercise that does the MIB franchise absolutely no favours.

Movie Review – X-Men: Dark Phoenix

X-Men: Dark Phoenix review. A weird choice of story for a franchise swansong, but partly redeemed by Sophie Turner’s splendid acting.

Movie Review – Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Godzilla: King of the Monsters review. Watch this for the thrill of modern CGI-empowered big Kaiju bashes. Nothing else.

Movie Review – Aladdin (2019)

Aladdin (2019) movie review. It would have been dazzlingly perfect, had it not tried so often to mimic the 1992 animation.

Movie Review – The Hustle

The Hustle movie review. Beautiful, spirited too, but completely empty of the sort of wit that makes scam movies wickedly enjoyable.

Movie Review – Pokémon Detective Pikachu

Pokémon Detective Pikachu review. Story plays like a Sunday morning cartoon arc. But who cares when they are all SO CUTE?!

Movie Review – Avengers: Endgame

Emotionally satisfying and brimming with fan service, Avengers: Endgame is a soaring finale to Marvel’s decade-long Infinity Saga.

Movie Review – Hellboy (2019)

Hellboy (2019) review. It doesn’t match up to the del Toro episodes. But it’s certainly not unbearable too.

Movie Review – Missing Link (2019 Film)

Missing Link (2019 Film) review. Gorgeous stop-motion animation with a brutal take on classic European colonialism. But the humour wears down quickly.

Movie Review – Pet Sematary (2019)

Pet Sematary (2019) movie review. Faithful to the novel, in its own way, but also radically different. And overall, rather disappointing to me.

Movie Review – Isn’t It Romantic

Isn’t It Romantic movie review. Colourful and entertaining, but with a confusing, borderline unethical message underneath.

Movie Review – Wonder Park

Wonder Park movie review. Another visually attractive animated feature with a predictable, forgettable story.

Movie Review- The Kid Who Would Be King

The Kid Who Would Be King review. Undoubtedly wholesome and kids friendly. But also dreadfully stale and unexciting.

Movie Review – Shazam!

Shazam! movie review. It was great fun shouting that great word together with Billy during the show. (And thankfully, other viewers didn’t mind).

Movie Review – Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel review. A light-hearted celebration of the Marvel movie formula, and the glorious power of women.

Movie Review – Mary Queen of Scots

Mary Queen of Scots review. A showcase for the dramatic talents of Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie. Not so much for historical accuracy.

Movie Review – Happy Death Day 2U

Happy Death Day 2U movie review. A bold expansion of the concepts in the first movie. With a switch in tone that might not appeal to everyone.

Movie Review – The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part review. Not as fresh as the first movie. But still bucket-loads of fun and laughs all the way.

Movie Review – Paradox (2016)

Paradox (2016) movie review. What began as a splendid time-travel mystery is completely dragged down by terrible acting and dialogue.

Movie Review – Alita Battle Angel

Alita: Battle Angel is eye candy all over. But as a story or even an episode, it is quite unlikely to impress.

Movie Review – How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World review. An immensely satisfying conclusion to one of the best animated trilogies of all time.

Movie Review – Glass (2019 Film)

Glass (2019 Film) review. Proud declaration. I thoroughly enjoyed Glass and I’m baffled by all the hate it’s receiving.

Movie Review – Escape Room

Escape Room movie review. An intense, modern reworking of a classic formula, with the usual stumbles for such stories.
