Chappie (2015)

A disappointing, farcical tale where a robot goes all gangster rap on us.

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

This film is so good I wanted to sit through it a second time without leaving my seat. End of review.

Her (2014)

Damn fine job Spike Jonze has done with Her. His research into the possibilities of the near future is plausible not only from a technological standpoint, but also from a social one. As qualified as I may be to understand the concept of ‘interface’ and the user experience, not since watching Microsoft’s Vision of the Future have I felt so excited about the possibilities of AI relative to our day to day interaction with the computer. For one thing it heralds the death of the PA. But I’m jumping ahead – I’ve not even talked […]

Superman: Man of Steel

It has truly been a week of sheer apocalyptic excellence. Alongside the incredible The Last of Us, I finally experienced the magnificent Man of Steel at the big screen at Odeon Leicester Square. Resplendent in 3D, the screen is a quality 8k experience and despite the extortionate ticket prices at £25 per head, I reserve the films I’m most excited about for this location to enjoy a proper cinematic experience. I really don’t know how to start with this one. I’m afraid that my warped subjectivity would place a slanted view on this much hyped […]

Evil Dead (2013)

What compels a grown man such as I to inflict such visions of horror and violence upon not only myself, but my good wife? I mean, it’s actually a bloody laugh riot. It’s a hoot. Evil Dead is a great movie. If you can stomach the violence (it’s more of a gore-fest than a horror actually) and the incessantly perverse beatings the cast typically get, then you can slowly start to unravel some of the real Sam Raimi DNA that’s hidden beneath this new coat of varnish and polish. It looks excellent, with a colour […]

Robot and Frank

Just how awesome is this film? A low-key movie set in a not too distant future, robots are part of every day society, from antiquated library assistants to modern home care counterparts. When Frank is plagued by familiar issues surrounding senility, his son buys him a robot to assist him in his daily duties. Reluctant at first, he warms to the company not least because it allows him to kickstart his old career as a jewel thief. Some touching moments that allow us to explore surprisingly warm moments of human endearments, with the robot creating […]

Flight

I can’t quite figure out if Whip Whitaker (Denzel Washington) is a total dude or a douche in this film. Our opening scene shows him in bed with a stunningly beautiful woman, he has a dream pilots job, jet sets across the world and is clearly living life one party at a time. But then he is on the phone refusing to cooperate with his estranged wife who is begging for assistance to help with their son you can’t quite help but feel you’re not supposed to like him. This is further exacerbated by his […]
