    It’s Only The End Of The World Blu-ray Review

    Tuesday, April 18, 2017

    City Of Tiny Lights Review

    Friday, April 7, 2017

    Neruda Review

    Thursday, April 6, 2017

    The problem with history is how easy it is to forget. Director Pablo Larrain’s solution is to cast Gael Garcia Bernal as a sort of deadpan Chilean Clouseau type with a thing for hot teeth in his titular new biopic about Chilean poet Pablo Neruda.

    Ghost In The Shell Review

    Friday, March 31, 2017

    Free Fire Review

    Wednesday, March 22, 2017

    They say there’s no such thing as a free lunch. Well, They probably don’t get invited to many press screenings. Press screenings like the one I went to for the new Ben Wheatley film Free Fire.

    Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars Review

    Tuesday, March 7, 2017

    I love David Bowie. And it’s unconditional.

    John Wick: Chapter 2 Review

    Friday, February 17, 2017

    It was acceptable in the eighties, mindless action films that is. I thought this kind of movie had been consigned to the past, but it seems the makers of John Wick: Chapter 2 didn’t get the memo.
