  • Shaft

    Shaft

    ★★★½

    Pretty good story wise, great cast. Samuel L. Jackson with a gun is always gonna be fun isn’t it...

  • Saint Maud

    Saint Maud

    ★★★½

    Very tense and atmospheric with a great central performance by Morfydd Clark.

  • Run

    Run

    ★★★½

    Good little thriller with two great lead performances. The story is twisted and the pacing is great, all leading to a very satisfying end.

  • The Next Karate Kid

    The Next Karate Kid

    ★★★½

    I love the first Karate Kid film but for me Parts 2 & 3 were average at best.
    Cobra Kai seasons 1-3 has come along now and it’s my favourite show of the last few years so I thought I’d check this film out in case any characters show up in the future.
    I’d heard this was pretty terrible but I actually enjoyed it the most of the sequel films. Maybe a change of characters is what the films needed. Now…

  • Shoot 'Em Up

    Shoot 'Em Up

    ★★★½

    If you want to see loads of over the top action, cheesy dialogue and carrot crunching then this is the film for you 🥕

  • The Expendables 3

    The Expendables 3

    ★★★½

    Not as action packed or violent as the previous two films but as a trilogy it’s consistently entertaining. 
    This film had a great opening and closing 30 minutes but the middle hour bogged it down as we are randomly introduced to a new set of characters who didn’t add much at all. 
    Gibson was a great addition but Ford looked a bit bored, Banderas was good but did become annoying. 
    If we get an Expendables 4 let’s hope we go back to 80s action and cheesy jokes from first to last minute.

  • Holidate

    Holidate

    ★★★½

    Holidate joins Hubie Halloween & The Babysitter: Killer Queen in getting a 3.5 rating from me. If I had any credibility on here it’s probably gone now.

  • Stitches

    Stitches

    ★★★½

    Good humour. Over the top kills. Simple but effective comedy horror.


    A clown pumps a guys head like a balloon and it explodes. You know you want to watch this film now.

  • My Spy

    My Spy

    ★★★½

    Enjoyed this one, yes it’s a bit silly but the characters work well together and the jokes are pretty good too.

  • The Babysitter: Killer Queen

    The Babysitter: Killer Queen

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Who knew this could be as much fun as the first film even without Bee 😉

  • Metro

    Metro

    ★★★½

    It’s no Beverly Hills Cop but it’s still a good Eddie Murphy action/comedy film. So typically 90s as well, worth checking out.

  • Semi-Pro

    Semi-Pro

    ★★★½

    Love me sexyyyyy
