Based on Robert B. Parker and Ace Atkins’ “Spenser” books (which I’ve never read) and the Spenser: For Hire TV series (which I’ve never seen), Spenser Confidential is now a TV movie I wish I hadn’t watched. This film is directed by uber-patriotic action hack Peter Berg and […]

Another Pixar movie is making its way to the cinema which means there’ll be yet another animated film on the scene that’s feigning emotion in order to make money. Pixar is undoubtedly the most overrated studio of all time; yes they’ve made a handful of classics but snooty […]
Every now and again, a British film pops-up that’s completely overrated by critics despite it being utterly dull. Whether it’s The Full Monty or Calendar Girls, these banal drama-comedies do quite well with mainstream Britain because apparently, the public loves seeing stereotypes being upheld in non-tasking, throwaway films. […]
Based on the video game of the same name, Sonic The Hedgehog is now a movie thanks to a bunch of money-hungry execs and a couple of film-makers with no imagination. I was always a Nintendo kid rather than a Sega kid so I’m not an expert on […]
In recent years, we’ve had numerous black-acted, black-written, and black-directed movies. This is undoubtedly something to be celebrated but conversely something to be ridiculed because it’s taken this long to happen. As a consequence of finally having multiple black films however (whether big-budget blockbusters or low-budget indie films) […]
Greed is a so-called satirical film written and directed by Michael Winterbottom. The movie is “inspired by” the life of billionaire Sir Philip Green, chairman of the Arcadia Group, a company which owns multiple high street clothing stores in the UK including Burton and Topshop. Green famously bought […]
Based on the book of the same name, The Rhythm Section is billed as an “action drama”, although I’m certain that genre designation was tacked-on after the movie’s first screening. Given the plot (a woman whose family is killed in a plane crash sets out to kill the […]
I’m no literature buff (or “book nonce” as I like to call them) so I’ll admit from the outset that I’ve never read The Turn Of The Screw by Henry James. I have however, watched the most famous adaptation; The Innocents starring Deborah Kerr and The Others starring […]
Remember when Beverly Hills Cop got to part III and everything became trashy and unfunny? The movie was disappointing on many levels, especially since it looked and felt nothing like the first two. Well, unfortunately for fans of Bad Boys, this has also happened to your favourite franchise. […]
Apple TV+ has a 7 day free trial and unfortunately for Apple, you can watch their entire catalogue during that time. You may think I’m exaggerating but no, if you binge-watch, you can literally view every single Apple Original programme in that time frame because the service only […]
Guy Ritchie is back with his latest film The Gentlemen, which on the surface, purports to be a back-to-his-roots offering in the same vein as Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels or Snatch. The trailer and promotion seems to be completely misleading however, as what we actually have […]
When I first saw Adam Driver on screen, I thought he had the appearance and demeanour of a second-rate serial killer. According to Wikipedia, as a child, Driver set fire to things and set up a “Fight Club” after being influenced by the film. This means I wasn’t […]
Star Wars has been going downhill ever since George Lucas began inserting mediocre CGI into his original trilogy so they’d match his inferior, digitally-created prequel trilogy. In my opinion, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return Of The Jedi are massively overrated but I’ll also admit […]
