The Great Wall

6.0

Thankfully the action is consistently satisfying and the films fun concept helps make up for its other flaws.

3.0

The cast are largely poor, this is no surprise though considering the painful dialogue they have to inflict on audiences.

The narrative is dull to say the least, getting its focus all wrong...

2016, Drama

This dense narrative is kept even more entertaining through the delightful humour spread out through the film and the effective score employed.

Prevenge

7.5

2017, Fantasy, Drama, Horror, Comedy, Suspense

You’ll definitely be entertained by the coarse black humour, horrifying content and clever writing.

Christine

8.0

2016, Drama

Hall’s strong central performance actress and story merge together to make for a great film.

2017.02.08

4.0

The story is limited in how much it can interest it’s audiences.

Poster for The Lego Batman Movie

The Lego Batman Movie

7.0

2017, Fantasy, Animation, Action, Comedy

Narrative niggles and over sentimentality aside the film is everything you could want from a Batman comedy.

Poster for Loving

Loving

6.0

2016, Drama, Love

It's a slight disappointment that the writing here can’t quite muster up the engagement that this story deserves.

Poster for xXx: Return of Xander Cage

xXx: Return of Xander Cage

4.0

I wouldn’t blame you if you hated this but with the right attitude you might just be able to find a little entertainment in it.

The drama is good, the cast are better than good and the characters definitely allow for an interesting chemistry.

A great example of how the power of film can expose spectacular true stories to much larger audiences.

Poster for Moonlight

Moonlight

7.5

2016, Drama

The drama is at times very enthralling but I have to conclude that this detailed character study just wasn’t for me.

2017.01.27

Poster for Sing

Sing

4.0

2016, Animation, Drama, Music, Comedy

Decides to be as tiresome and empty as the talent shows it portrays and offers a similar level of entertainment, not much.

2017.01.23

Poster for Jackie

Jackie

7.0

2016, Drama, History

For me, Natalie Portman’s performance in ‘Jackie’ is better than the film itself.

2017.01.22

Poster for Split

Split

9.0

2017, Horror, Suspense

McAvoy’s superb powerhouse of a performance is equally as entertaining as it is terrifying...

Lion

9.5

2016, Drama

Tells this story in a most entertaining and engaging way deservedly proving why it has been receiving such acclaim.

With low expectations and the right attitude ‘The Bye Bye Man’ is harmless fun.
