Early Man Movie Review
The story revolves about the fictional creation of football and being eccentrically British we’re talking about soccer and not the American grid iron sport. The film features mostly a human type cast with a few animals to give it a youthful appeal. However the animals that do frequent the screen add a lot of the film’s laugh out loud humour.
It’s an odd mix of humour and commentary on such adult topics as the privilege of the rich and the social pecking order of the haves ...

Thor: Ragnarok Movie Review
This work is the most entertaining Marvel film in many a moon. It’s biggest positive is its engaging sense of humour. It stands out in stark contrast to some of the more serious superhero fare and it’s a very welcome departure. There are even a few uncredited cameos that are a hoot.
Hemsey returns as Thor and is joined by a few members of the Marvel Universe that appear on the poster art work and a few that don’t. Highly decorated thespian Cate Blanchett is ...
Kong: Skull Island Movie Review
The cast is chock full of Hollywood A-Listers including a man of the moment, Tom Hiddleston, the always popular Samuel L. Jackson (in a bad guy role) and even an attempt at some form of indie cred with Brie Larson, here getting her best Lara Croft on following her star turn in Room. The other A-Lister is that big bad monkey man, who this time out is big but not so bad.
The locations are exotic and the sets are stunning and the emergence of the big guy is played to ...

Crimson Peak Movie Review
It must be said that the film looks fantastic and features visuals never before seen but the plot and action staging is so predictable, it drains all the energy out of the experience. In some genres this would not drive the knife into the heart but with the horror/thriller genre nothing is worse than predictability.
Also not helping is the film score by Fernando Velázquez that telegraphs emotions with such an obvious touch. It’s a shame really as the cast, which includes Mia Wasikow...
