  • Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

    Movie Review | Matt Looker | 6th December 2016

    At a time when every superhero, toy, 80s cartoon character, board game and emoji are fighting for enough space at the box office to create their own movie 'universe', J.K. Rowling's work is already done. Her wizarding world of Harry Potter is well established and still ripe for further exploration, which is pretty much the perfect environment in which to churn out money-making tie-in movies of lesser returns. And yet, instead, a far greater challenge has been undertaken: birthing an entirely new franchise of films set within the same universe. Somehow, audiences are going to have to get invested in a new story that - we can assume - will never be as important as the one we have already seen. So those beasts had better be pretty bloody fantastic.

  • Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2

    Movie Review | Matt | 9th July 2011

    And so it all ends. Goodbye, Gryffindor. So long, Slytherin. Adios ‘Ogwarts. Whatever your feelings about ‘The Boy Who Lived’ and his mostly family friendly foray into a world of wizardry, there’s no denying that this final film marks the end of an inspired (and lucrative) era in British filmmaking. So thank god that it so magnificently lives up to the occasion.

  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

    Movie Review | Matt | 19th November 2010

    So, after nine years of expelliarmus this and accio that, the Harry Potter franchise comes to a close. The trailer tagline says, "It all ends here"...but it doesn't really, does it? Because as the title agrees, and as fans feared, this is very much just the first half of a bigger story that really ends next July. However, while it's fair to say that this sadly doesn't work as a standalone film, it is still one of the best instalments of the series yet.
