October (2014)


Gone Girl, 03/10/14

Gone Girl - Title

Stylish, gripping and incredibly haunting, Gone Girl will stick in the mind long after viewing. It’s another fantastic effort from David Fincher (The Social Network), thanks, in part, to outstanding turns from Rosamund Pike (An Education) and Ben Affleck (Argo).

Review coming soon.

4.5 Stars


Dracula Untold, 10/10/14

Dracula Untold - Title

Luke Evans (The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug) and Dominic Cooper (Need For Speed) star in this dull and insipid interpretation of the gothic legend Dracula, which suffers from weak direction and an overwhelming desire to become a superhero movie.

Whiplash, 10/10/14

Whiplash - Title

Director Damien Chazelle delivers the most raw and intense cinematic experience of the year with this gripping tale. Miles Teller (That Awkward Moment) impresses once again in a starring role, while J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man) is truly phenomenal as his mentor.

Review coming soon.

Birdman, 17/10/14

Birdman - Title

Michael Keaton (Batman) delivers the performance of a lifetime in Alejandro González Iñárittu’s (Babel) fascinating and wonderfully dark black comedy. The whole supporting cast is superb, with Edward Norton (The Grand Budapest Hotel) the pick of the bunch.

Review coming soon.

4.5 Stars


John Wick, 24/10/14

John Wick - Title

Former stunt men turned directing duo, Chad Stahelski & David Leitch (The Matrix) re-unite with Keanu Reeves (47 Ronin) to deliver one of the most stylish, exhilarating and and wild action movies of the year. Wonderfully entertaining from start to finish.

Review coming soon.

4 Stars


Nightcrawler, 31/10/14

Nightcrawler - Title

Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain) is delightfully deranged in this well constructed neo-noir thriller from writer/director Dan Gilroy (Real Steel). The intense visual style blended with an innovative screenplay makes it an underrated classic.

Review coming soon.
