Winchester Movie Review
The story involving the guilt felt by the surviving widow of the creator of the huge Winchester Arms company is a solid one. The way this guilt manifests itself as the story evolves opens quite a few doors for exploration of the world of the living and the dead but it can’t sustain such a poor script.
Even the mighty Helen Mirren, try as she might, can’t do much with the wooden marbles she has to spit out. As the cliches pile up, the film relies more and more ...

Inspired by true events at the most haunted house in history. On an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco sits a house that knows no end.

To the outsider it looks like a monstrous ...

But when the former ally in the Communist regime of the USSR became the enemy of the West during the Cold War, the ground figuratively shifted beneath western Communists' feet and they became targets of suspicion within their own countries.
This is not unique to this time and place, of course; German ...
Woman in Gold Movie Review
Woman in Gold ticks many boxes which appeal to a wide audience - it's a David and Goliath story; it's courtroom drama; it's holocaust drama; and it's art documentary. It's a gripping story about a fascinating and frightening moment in history and director, Simon Curtis, holds it all together with a sure hand.
The film is structured into two timelines: the present day where we follow Altmann's attempts to reacquire her stolen possession; and the early 20th century leading to the Anschluss ...
Monsters University Movie Review
So it is that Monsters University arrives with much anticipation. The sequel has some mighty shoes to fill and sadly it falls some way short as it is surprisingly bereft of new ideas. What is presented here is simply a ‘further adventures of Mike and Sully’ film that could easily have gone straight to DVD.
The film channels the frat movies of the eighties. While that seems like such a great idea in theory, the potential remains largely unrealised here. Taking most of its cues from ...
