Rating – ★ It’s a burning question that I felt needed answering ever since the first wave of negative reviews started circulating. With the first responses already sending the reboot into the deepest reaches of movie hell, it wasn’t looking promising. The negativity surrounding the movie was certainly enough to talk me out of a […]Read More Just How Bad is Hellboy (2019)?
Rating – ★★½ Disney’s decision to buy one of cinemas most iconic franchises received mixed reactions from audiences. Some saw it as a potential to right the (many) wrongs George Lucas presented with his prequels, others couldn’t see it as any more than a feeble attempt at raking in easy cash.

An adaptation of the book ‘I Heard You Paint Houses’ and real life story of Frank ‘The Irishman’ Sheeran, A war veteran who later […]Read More The Irishman: Review
Rating – ★★★★ Upon hearing a sequel was in the works, for what is arguably one of the most influential horror movies of all time, it was met with immediate trepidation. The Shining still remains one of the most talked about films in cinema history. Its subjective themes have sparked many heated discussions, that even […]Read More Doctor Sleep: Review
