‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ (2015) Review

Star Wars:The Force Awakens (2015) Review: A NEW New Hope I’m not a huge Star Wars fan, I’ll start out with that. I watched the movies when I was younger, it didn’t really register with me the same way something like Terminator or Spider-Man did. I thought lightsabers were cool

‘Creed’ (2015) Review

Creed (2015) Review:Rocky Episode VII In my review for Southpaw, I mentioned how the sports movie, and more specifically the boxing movie, is a rarity in film in that, rather than evolve from the tropes and cliches it’s known for, it revels in it. Audiences even find it a travesty if the

‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2’

Hunger Games: Mockingjay (2015) : Fickle Finale Another one bites the dust. Yet another YA novel franchise reaches its ultimate conclusion. I say ultimate because technically this film had an ending to its ending. Yes this is another adaptation that took it upon itself to split the final part of its saga into two

‘Steve Jobs’ (2015) Review

Steve Jobs (2015) Review: Sorkin Overload Every great filmmaker has a signature style to identify them. They might dabble between different genres and mediums, but at the core of it, the audience is able to say “That felt like one of theirs”. Some are easier to pick up on than

‘Spectre’ (2015) Review

Spectre (2015) Review:James Bland James Bond films are somewhat event cinema. With a history that dates back to 1962, the series has developed success both critically and commercially, and the following that comes with it. More than that, the series has developed to the point where it has essentially become

Goosebumps (2015) Review: Go Read A Book The films we see today are usually based on some other medium; whether it be comics, a TV show or based on the novel Push by Sapphire. Regardless, these films are the ones that get put under the closest scrutiny as fans of

‘Bridge Of Spies’ (2015) Review

Bridge Of Spies (2015) Review: I Spy A Damn Good Movie How long should a movie career last? The best filmmakers typically, after a long enough run in hollywood, build a quality body of work that people revere. The trouble is, after too long, filmmakers tend to lose their resolve.

‘The Walk’ (2015) Review

The Walk (2015) Review:Impossibly Good Film-making is all about illusion. Every year people spend their hard earned time and money to sit in a dark room where they’re told to be quiet, all so they can watch the wool being pulled over their eyes. The actors pretend to be someone

‘The Martian’ Review (2015)

The Martian (2015) Review: Cast Away. In Spaaaace. Ridley Scott is an interesting director to say the least. While his beginnings of ‘Alien’ and ‘Blade Runner’ cemented him as a sci-fi great, Scott’s curriculum vitae is as broad as the xenomorph’s skull. He’s done a war film in ‘Black Hawk Down’, a

‘Black Mass’ (2015) Review

Black Mass (2015) Review: Strictly Criminal Crime films are quite possibly the most conflicted genre of cinema. Here you have films that depict the most gratuitous acts of violence, moral depravity and disregard for the rules that society has agreed to align themselves by. Their characters use foul language and
