Burning Movie Review

Frustrating but masterfully crafted. Burning is a well-made mystery but I also can’t help feeling annoyed at how ambiguous the story is. In a strange way, there’s enough plot to keep me invested but not enough to make me Read more…


True Detective Season 3 TV Review

8/10 A return to true form. True Detective Season 3 redeems Nic Pizzolatto’s reputation as an incredible writer of detective drama which started with the incredible first season of True Detective. While not as amazing as the first, Season Read more…


The Ballad of Buster Scruggs Movie Review

9/10 A profound anthology film for the making. The Coen Brothers manage to divert their incredible storytelling talent into six fantastic short stories. The Ballad of Buster Scruggs works like Western folklore to cleverly tell stories that feel the Read more…


Searching Movie Review

8/10. Maybe the best mystery film viewed almost entirely through a laptop. Searching smartly uses modern-day technology to create an entertaining thriller. All of which took me by surprise as I was expecting the film to be a Sony Read more…


A Star Is Born Movie Review

7/10 Fourth time’s the charm for this remake. While A Star Is Born borrows the same core plotline from the original 1937 film, the 1954 musical, the 1976 rock musical and 2013 Bollywood romance film (almost as many Rocky movies), Read more…


Mandy Movie Review

7/10 A mesmerising experience and one of the best movies for 2018 so far. Nicolas Cage makes a fine return with an action-horror film that’s incredibly stylistic and thoroughly entertaining. But be warned, this is not a film for the faint Read more…


The House with a Clock in its Walls Movie Review

5.5/10 The House with a Clock in Its Walls (HCW) is the latest offering from horror director Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever), and weirdly, it’s meant a film for kids. Based on the children’s book by John Bellairs, HCW Read more…


American Animals Movie Review

7.5/10 Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction. American Animals comes from director Bart Layton, whose most famous piece of work is the 2012 documentary The Imposter which still remains one of the best documentaries to have come out in recent Read more…


Slender Man Movie Review

1.5/10 One of the most poorly constructed films that I have ever seen. Slender Man is easily a front-runner to take out 2018’s Worst Movie prize because to put it quite simply, it’s not even a movie. There is Read more…


BlacKkKlansman Movie Review

7/10 Winner of the 2nd Best film award (Grand Prix) at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, BlacKkKlansman is a witty drama which is based on the true story of a black detective who went undercover to infiltrate the Ku Read more…
