  • Avengers: Infinity War

    Movie Review | Matt Looker | 25th April 2018

    In every way that matters – and it matters in every way – Avengers: Infinity War is basically the biggest movie ever. Ten years in the making, producing some of the highest grossing films on record and some of the most recognisable characters and franchises in the world, it’s astonishing that this climactic crossover event combining all of them in one big-screen adventure is even possible. What’s more astonishing is that it somehow meets every single impossible expectation you have for it.

    Movie Review | Matt Looker | 30th June 2017

    Following his glorified cameo in Captain America: Civil War, everyone has been wondering exactly how how Marvel will reboot the character in his own solo outing. No one wants to see another bitey radioactive spider, but how do you tell an origin story without actually telling the origin story? Is he definitely part of the ongoing Marvel timeline forever more?

    Movie Review | Chris | 22nd May 2007

    This latest effort from director David Fincher (Seven, Fight Club) is an intensely detailed, powerfully thrilling look into the nature of obsession and the power of fear; a throwback of sorts to the type of films made during the very era it depicts. The film is razor sharp and wholly engaging, filled to the brim with fantastic ...

    Movie Review | Ali | 1st March 2006

    Ask any young filmgoer who their favourite screenwriter is and they'll probably tell you that - shock horror - the pen of Quentin is what turns them on. Chances are, they're just as big a fan of one Shane Black, the only thing is, they probably don't even know it. Black is the motormouth behind gems like Lethal Weapon and The ...
