300: Rise Of An Empire, 07/03/14

300: Rise Of An Empire - Title

The sequel to the hugely popular 2007 cult hit may not have quite as much style or quality in depth, but new director Noam Murro (Smart People) still injects a similar tone and entertainment levels, buoyed by a standout performance from Eva Green (Casino Royale).

Mr Peabody & Sherman, 07/03/14

Mr Peabody & Sherman - Title

Rob Minkoff (Stuart Little) brings the famous 1950’s time-travelling duo to the big screen, featuring the voices of Modern Family duo Ty Burrell & Ariel Winter. Yet, despite boasting an interesting premise and great animation, the story can’t help but feel a little flat.

Review coming soon.

The Grand Budapest Hotel, 07/03/14

The Grand Budapest Hotel - Title

Cult favourite auteur Wes Anderson (Moonrise Kingdom) returns on the back of a string of recent successes, boasting arguably his most entertaining piece yet. The film features magnificent cast – led wonderfully by a fantastic Ralph Fiennes (Schindler’s List).

Review coming soon.

4.5 Stars


Need For Speed, 14/03/14

Need For Speed - Title

Often straying into ‘ludicrous’ territory, Scott Waugh’s (Act Of Valour) fast-paced flick offers fun, thrills and a distinct lack of any real story, but Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) and Imogen Poots (That Awkward Moment) manage to hold their own in the lead roles.

Review coming soon.

2.5 Stars


Divergent, 21/03/14

Divergent - Title

Director Neil Burger (Limitless) and lead Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) channel the success of The Hunger Games series in this stylish young adult adaptation. The end product suffers from weak scripting though, along with an unforgivably long runtime.

Muppets Most Wanted, 21/03/14

Muppets Most Wanted - Title

Director James Bobin (The Muppets) and writer Nicholas Stoller (Bad Neighbours) return for a sequel that delivers a few laughs, but, overall, is a bit of a step down. Entertaining turns from Tina Fey (30 Rock) and Ty Burrell (Modern Family) help, though.

Review coming soon.

2.5 Stars


A Long Way Down, 21/03/14

A Long Way Down - Title

Pierce Brosnan (Die Another Day), Imogen Poots (Need For Speed), Toni Colette (Hostages) and Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) star in this darkly comic tale from prolific author Nick Hornby (About A Boy) that ultimately ends up feeling a little stale.

Review coming soon.

2.5 Stars


Noah, 28/03/14

Noah - Title

Russell Crowe (Gladiator) delivers a powerful performance in Darren Aranofsky’s (Black Swan) often thoughtful and very stylish biblical epic, but an overlong running time and tonal inconsistencies prevents it from delivering on its full potential.

Review coming soon.

3 Stars


Sabotage, 28/03/14

Sabotage - Title

David Ayer’s (End Of Watch) conspiracy tale pits a great supporting cast alongside an iconic leading man in Arnold Schwarzenegger (Predator), but is ultimately let down by a misogynistic tone and a weak script from Skip Woods (A Good Day To Die Hard).

Review coming soon.
