Guardians Of The Galaxy, 01/08/14

Guardians Of The Galaxy - Title

James Gunn (Super) directs the superhero film that nobody saw coming, bringing with him a fantastic cast – led by the ever-entertaining Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie) and an impressive visual palette for what looks like Marvel Studios’ most ambitious film to date.

Review coming soon.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, 08/08/14

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Title

It’s by no means the train-wreck it could have been, but Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles never really lives up to its true potential either. An thin story and a weak female lead undermine some great portrayals of everyone’s favourite heroes-in-a-half-shell.

Let’s Be Cops, 15/08/14

Let's Be Cops - Title

This Jake Johnson (New Girl)/Damon Wayans Jr (Happy Endings) buddy cop comedy starts with a lot of great potential, but the laughter soon dries out – replaced by stupidity and a mind-numbingly tedious plot that we’ve seen time and time again already.

Review coming soon.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, 22/08/14

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For - Title

While it manages to be as visually stylish and dark as its predecessor, A Dame To Kill For fails to tread any new ground, and ends up feeling a little repetitive. The acting is as great as ever though. Eva Green (Casino Royale) captivates whenever she’s on-screen.

When The Game Stands Tall, 22/08/14

When The Game Stands Tall - Title

Thomas Carter (Coach Carter) returns to the world of inspirational high school sports movie with another feel-good hit. While it lacks the depth and subtlety of his 2004 film, this fast-paced and unashamedly sentimental football flick still entertains.
