7500: Film Review

7500 film

I am a huge fan of Joseph Gordon-Levitt so naturally, I had to check out his acting comeback after a three-year hiatus. He is as good as ever in 7500, a plane hijacking thriller, but sadly the movie loses its edge halfway through.

My Christopher Nolan top five

Christopher Nolan‘s latest effort Dunkirk comes out on Friday and while I’m in the minority of people who didn’t love it (read my review here), it certainly makes my top five.

Snowden: Film Review 

snowden-film-review

Edward Snowden, who exposed the illegal mass surveillance techniques used by the NSA on all US civilians in 2013, is a very interesting person with an incredible story to tell so it’s just a shame that the dramatisation about his life lacks a certain something and isn’t as powerful as the Laura Poitras‘ 2014 documentary Citizenfour.

The Night Before: Film Review

dec3

I love Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Christmas films, but I wasn’t entirely convinced by this because I felt the trailer had spoiled every bit of hilarity, but there was no need to worry because this is so funny and just brilliant.

Top Films for December

dec1

Another month, another upcoming preview! It seems most releases have done the sensible thing and steered clear of December and the super anticipated release of Stars Wars – The Force Awakens. Of the films on offer, there are some dreadful-looking comedies and the critically panned Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie outing By The Sea – so there isn’t much I want to see. Here are the picks that scrape by:

The Walk: Film Review

walk3

All the buzz around The Walk seems to be about the visual spectacle element and sure, it does look amazing, immersive and you do feel like you are on the wire with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. But once you strip all these style pointers away, the film is missing something, and I’m not totally sure what that is.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Review

sin4

The first film was not quite my cup of tea but I could appreciate it for its style and diverse range of casting. While the stylised black-and-white picture is still there, it loses its edge in this follow-up (nine years later) purely because we’ve seen it before. However, I thought the storylines were more fleshed out and I liked that there were more leading female characters.

Top Films for August

The Inbetweeners 2

How could I not include this? I am such a fan of the TV series and I thought the first film was brilliant. I wasn’t overjoyed when this was announced to be honest, purely because I don’t know how it could possibly top the Malia trip but here we are, and the four boys are back, but this time in Australia. I have managed to keep my expectations low but I desperately want it to be good. Released: 6th August
