Review – Robin Hood

Robin Hood, directed by Otto Bathurst, had the potential to add an interesting new spin on a story and character that has been well and truly done at this point. Unfortunately, despite some minor, and somewhat interesting choices, Robin Hood is a bland, forgettable film in which my opinion of it could best be communicated with a shrug of the shoulders. This won’t be the most riveting of reviews I’ve had the opportunity to write recently, but it will do you the favour of letting you know if you should make the effort to go see this film. So, without further ado, let’s get on with the review. Read more

Review – Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle, directed by Matthew Vaughn, is a loud, crass, childish, empty film that by the end had me completely bored by everything it had to offer. This is the type of film where it tries to fill the screen with seemingly interesting or exciting content, but if you look at it closely (to be honest you don’t have to look that close) you realise just how little this film actually gives itself to work with. I was utterly bored by the end of this film and couldn’t wait for it to be over. But why was that the case? Where did it go wrong to make this the case? Let’s explore those questions and more in my review. Read more

Eddie the Eagle

Eddie the Eagle, directed by Dexter Fletcher is a humble little film with an endearing character at its core, and a story that you can easily get behind. Now this is a film that is more than burdened with a few problems, but in the end, most of those didn’t end up ruining the experience for me. There’s a lot that may frustrate you about this film but there is just as much to love. So let’s get into what they are. Read more

Review – Legend

Legend

Legend, written and directed by Brian Helgeland is a gleefully callous film that jumps so sporadically from one tone to another, that soon the films loses its footing and its own sense, and in the end becomes a difficult to keep up with experience that certainly begins to over stay its welcome.
