Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, 11/07/14

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes - Title

After the hugely successful 2011 franchise reboot, Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) steps into the director’s chair to deliver a much darker and potentially even more impressive sequel, featuring another outstanding performance from Andy Serkis (King Kong) as Caesar.

Review coming soon.

Boyhood, 11/07/14

Boyhood - Title

A phenomenal directing achievement from Richard Linklater (School Of Rock) that treads somewhere in-between full blown masterpiece, and an overlong artsy affair. Ethan Hawke (Before Midnight) and Patricia Arquette (True Romance) are fantastic either way though.

Review coming soon.

Sex Tape, 18/07/14

Sex Tape - Title

Jake Kasdan (Orange County) helms this weak comedy that desperately wants to be adult and raunchy – despite being better off as a PG-13 affair. Cameron Diaz (Bad Teacher) continues her run of misfires in a role that feels like nothing more than a quick pay check.

Review coming soon.

Lucy, 25/07/14

Lucy - Title

Action-packed and completely ludicrous, Lucy never lets itself get bogged down by drama – or any real story at all for that matter. Scarlett Johansson (The Winter Solider) turns in another impressive lead performance and the visuals are great, but the rest is weak.

Hercules, 25/07/14

Hercules - Title

Brett Ratner (X-Men: The Last Stand) directs this uninspired and often dull interpretation of the Hercules myth that’s still a million times better than The Legend Of Hercules. Dwayne Johnson (Fast Five) adds energy to the lead role, but there’s nothing new here.
