Review – Hotel Artemis

Hotel Artemis, written and directed by Drew Pearce, offers an interesting selection of characters in an explosive situation where we’re waiting for the inevitable boom to come. I didn’t have high expectations walking into this film, but I ended up finding it to be quite entertaining. The film is of course not without faults and it isn’t a film that’s going to have critics raving, but there’s something simple and fun about Hotel Artemis. So, let’s explore what some of those things are and if they’re good enough to warrant you going to see it. Read more

Review – Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde, directed by David Leitch, is a film with an infectious style. With its pulsating soundtrack, its vibrant colours, its delightfully brutal actions scenes and it all being within the backdrop of Berlin in 1989 – there’s much to gorge your senses on, in Atomic Blonde. However, the film doesn’t really go beyond that. There isn’t much depth for you to sink your teeth in to. But, does that diminish the overall experience? Well, let’s find out in this review.

Review – The Mummy

The Mummy, directed by Alex Kurtzman, is a film that is the epitome of bland. You are given a story that is delivered in a dull, lazy way, and you are offered characters that are lacking depth or any hint of a reason to care about them. It doesn’t take long for this film to lose its way, but once it does, oh boy is it a difficult one to make it through. Don’t expect anything positive when I talk about, The Mummy (other films, like the original with Brendan Frasier, sure, I might talk about them nicely) but my review of this film will probably resemble a public humiliation, so get your out-of-date veg ready and warm-up your throwing arm, cause this is going to get messy.

Review – Star Trek Beyond

Star Trek Beyond

Star Trek Beyond, directed by Justin Lin, is a perfect balancing of elements that made the classic Star Trek properties so popular, and the elements that now make-up the J.J. Abrams Universe (better known as the Kelvin timeline). With a story that actually has you intrigued, characters with actual meaning, and an overall clear direction, makes for a Star Trek film worth your attention. But… not everything is as you’d perhaps want it to be. Let’s fully explore all of the parts, which make up this film. Let the review commence. Read more
