The Meg (2018)

I was about 7 or 8 years old when I read the original Steve Alten novel, Meg. I was in love with films and books about creatures eating people, like Jaws or Aliens, et al. Thus we finally have The Meg, an adaptation that is 20 years in the making. And it's awful. The Meg is... Continue Reading →

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Spoilers I recently re-watched the original Jurassic Park after some years and was pleasantly reminded about just how great a film it is. The effects still hold up very well, and it is an incredibly well paced and constructed movie with great characters. I grew up watching the film and gained a newfound appreciation for it from...

Solo: A Star Wars Story

*Moderate Spoilers* At some point around halfway through Solo: A Star Wars Story, I really hoped there was something that I could really like about it. One or two scenes revealed much potential, especially the scene where Han and Chewbacca meet. I was wondering why I hadn't laughed much, or felt particularly thrilled, despite reading...

Film Review: ‘Logan’ (2017)

Hugh Jackman's career-defining role as Wolverine/Logan/Weapon X has finally come to an end. I remember back in 2000 when my dad and sister went off to see a movie that I, at the time, did not wish to see, I decided to see X-Men instead, on my own. That was the first time I'd ever gone...

Film Review: ‘Split,’ (2017)

I haven't watched any of M. Night Shyamalan's films for some time. I think the last one was The Happening, a movie about killer plants. The Last Airbender and After Earth appear to have sent him off the deep end, but he has returned in recent memory with a return to horror with The Visit... Continue Reading →

Film Review: “Ghostbusters” (2016)

I was fortunate enough to have been invited to an early screening of the new Ghostbusters by a film reviewer friend of mine, which is good because I didn't find any of the trailers particularly compelling. I also didn't have a problem with the all-female version of the franchise like many online 'haters' did. Kristen Wiig and Melissa... Continue Reading →

Film Review: “The Lobster”, (2016)

Romance. Singleness. Loneliness. Awkwardness. Animals. David (Colin Farrell) has recently been separated from his wife. As a result, he is to attend a hotel with other singles and given 45 days to find true love or otherwise risk being turned into an animal of his choice - which is a lobster. While at the hotel,...

Film Review: “Midnight Special”, (2016)

If you're after a film that will make you think (sometimes to maddening levels) then this other-worldly drama is for you. Jeff Nichols' Midnight Special follows the story of a father, Roy (Michael Shannon) that kidnaps his son Alton (Jaeden Leiberher) from the clutches of a cult in order to take him to a specific location on...
