The Snowman: Film Review

There are a lot of excellent serial killer/murder mysteries on TV but they just haven’t been done right on film in a while, like The Girl on the Train, and I was confident The Snowman, based on the Jo Nesbo book, could change that -but unfortunately it did not.

Alien: Covenant – Film Review

I am a big fan of the Alien franchise and I personally liked Prometheus (I know many didn’t) so I had massively high hopes for Alien: Covenant. Sadly, it isn’t the resounding success I hoped for. It has many great moments but also many predictable and stupid ones so I left feeling a little disappointed.

Trespass Against Us: LFF Film Review 

I’ve got quite used to seeing Michael Fassbender in big blockbusters like Prometheus and X-Men or even period pieces like Macbeth but we haven’t seen him play a common British criminal in ages (if ever) so I mainly wanted to see Trespass Against Us for that reason.

X-Men: Apocalypse – Film Review

x1

The initial reaction to X-Men: Apocalypse was very mixed so I went in with low expectations and this probably helped because I actually liked it. Sure, it’s not as good as Days of Future Past and it’s pretty bleak, but it is still a decent watch with some great performances so I definitely recommend checking it out if you’re into this kind of thing.
