Movie Review – The Secret Life of Pets

The Secret Life of Pets movie review. For the moment, the gag of talking animals might have run out of steam and laughs.

Movie Review – Ben Hur (2016)

Even if evaluated alone, Ben Hur (2016) feels to be a clumsy effort at promoting the Christian message of love. Its main flaw being it does so too loudly.

Movie Review – Nerve

Nerve movie review. It'd have been the perfect dissertation on online culture, had it not been so obliged to be morally correct.

Movie Review – Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad movie review. DCEU's attempt at a "fun" superhuman movie. Which doesn't quite work out that way, but is still lighthearted entertainment.

Movie Review – Jason Bourne

Jason Bourne movie review. Everything fans love about the franchise is in this installment. Unfortunately, little else is added.

Classic Horror Movie Review – Creepshow

Creepshow movie review. An absolute tour de force by three celebrated masters of the horror movie genre.

Movie Review – Star Trek Beyond

Like the original series, the chief attraction of Star Trek Beyond is the incredible synergy between all crew members of the Enterprise.

Classic Horror Movie Review – The Medusa Touch

The Medusa Touch movie review. Not Richard Burton's finest work, but still a great example of this legendary actor's natural talent.

Movie Review – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story movie review. Not just commercial milking of the franchise. In many ways, deserving to be Episode 3.5.

Movie Review – The Warriors Gate

The Warriors Gate movie review. Some sort of Karate Kid & Forbidden Kingdom in-between. Two hours of lazy and lame humour.

Movie Review – Sing

Sing movie review. A hilarious festive season feel-good animated feature that thrills and lifts with magnificent music and splendid vocals.

Movie Review – Underworld: Blood Wars

Underworld: Blood Wars review. A needless sequel with no development or resolution, Impossible to understand for those new to the franchise.

Movie Review – Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie review. A more matured version of the Harry Potter universe. One a little too fan obliging at the moment.

Movie Review – Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange movie review. Not just another obligatory MCU epiosde, it impresses with its sincere efforts to look and feel different.

Movie Review – American Pastoral

American Pastoral movie review. In my opinion, not a terrible effort. Just unable to live up to the sophistication of Philip Roth's novel.

Movie Review – The Accountant

The Accountant movie review, The Ben Affleck Batman performance that should have been. And like BvS, dragged down by a convoluted script.

Movie Review – Inferno

Inferno movie review. Decent adaptation of Dan Brown’s 2013 novel, with its greatest merit being it snuffed the most absurd bits of the book.

Movie Review – Florence Foster Jenkins

Florence Foster Jenkins review. This “biopic” will leave you guffawing & sympathetic, as how Jenkin’s audiences must have felt in the 30s.

Movie Review – The Space Between Us

The Space Between Us movie review. A young adult love story set in the near-future that hesitates too much to explore its unusual premise.

Movie Review – The Lego Batman Movie

The Lego Batman Movie review. A wacky and insane tribute to the world's greatest detective. Also possibly the best Batman movie ever.

Asian Movie Review – Kamui Gaiden (カムイ外伝)

A gritty portrayal of a ninja’s doomed life, Kamui Gaiden (カムイ外伝) invites you to view these shadowy assassins as they historically were.

Movie Review – Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter movie review. Mindless and flawed, but delivers a satisfying dosage of sexy lethalness.

Classic Horror Movie Review – The Exorcist III

The Exorcist III review. A shining example of superior horror storytelling, despite the various production controversies involved.

Asian Movie Review – City Without Baseball (無野之城)

City Without Baseball movie review (無野之城). The first of several controversial movies by Hong Kong producer Scud, this is arguably his tamest.

Classic Horror Movie Review – Day of the Dead

Movie Review of Day of the Dead. A fine example of how horror could be intelligent storytelling, if you don't mind the verbose first hour.

Movie Review – Allied

Allied movie review. Great for a night out, or on the plane. Not if you're looking for memorable, gritty wartime depiction.
