Live By Night Blu-ray Review

Sienna Miller in Live By Night

Ben Affleck’s new movie, Live By Night, opens with a voice-over and a pretty dense prologue. So, a literary adaptation, in case that didn’t give it away.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge Review

"PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES"..The villainous Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) pursues Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) as he searches for the trident used by Poseidon..Ph: Film Frame..©Disney Enterprises, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

They say dead men tell no tales, for obvious reasons. That being the case, it might be time for Captain Jack Sparrow to die in Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge.

Hacksaw Ridge Blu-ray Review

Hacksaw Ridge

Mel Gibson and violent movies. Whether he’s on leading man duties, as a burnt-out cop or futuristic road warrior, or behind the camera, overseeing resistance to British rule in 13th-century Scotland or the graphically-depicted crucifixion of Christ, he is not one to shy away from a spot of bloodletting. Hacksaw Ridge sees his first cinematic foray into World War II territory.

Graduation Blu-ray Review


Cristian Mungiu, whose recent film, 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days and Beyond the Hills, garnered much international critical acclaim, seems to specialise in tough subjects. He finds himself on similar ground with Graduation, a gritty film set in his native Romania, but thematically one which will resonate with parents around the world.

Miss Sloane Review

Miss Sloane

Me and Miss Sloane – we got a thing going on. At least we might have if that judge hadn’t granted Miss Chastain a restraining order. So I’ll just have to make do with reviewing her latest film instead.
