The Beach Bum: Film Review

With a cast which includes Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron and Jonah Hill, I figured Harmony Korine‘s The Beach Bum would be an enjoyable way to spend 95 minutes – but it’s not.

Mid90s: Film Review

I have been a fan of Jonah Hill‘s acting work for a long time so naturally, I was keen to check out his directorial debut Mid90s – and it pains me to say that I wasn’t a fan of it at all.

The LEGO Batman Movie: Film Review


After the success of The LEGO Movie it really wasn’t much of a surprise that they created a spin-off although I wasn’t all that fussed about it being centred around Batman.

Hail, Caesar!: Film Review


I love movies based in the movie industry and I do love a good cast and Hail, Caesar! filled both criteria. I was still not 100% confident I would like it because I do not enjoy all the Coen brothers’ work, but I was still hoping for more than what it ultimately gave.

True Story: Film Review


True Story is a perfect example of a film which looks amazing and exciting in the trailer when in reality the full-length product is just good. I was hoping for more from this real life true crime tale and it was certainly interesting but it just lacked any excitement, tension or suspense.
