Film Reviews: John Wick

We’re kicking off a lot of film reviews with something of a modern cult classic, that has spawned a lot of memes, and speaks to animal lovers everywhere – John Wick. Starring Keanu Reeves as the titular character, it follows the story of a retired assassin of such skill and reverence that he became known… Read more

Film Reviews: Logan

Mortality. Legacy. Two words which come to mind when thinking of Logan. This is the most raw, passionate take on the character, exposing his vulnerability and his pain as well as making him – and through him the audience – confront his past. Logan is Wolverine but he is also Logan – a man who… Read more

Film Reviews: Sing

It feels like we’ve been waiting for this film for a long time. The first trailer for Sing dropped late in 2015, and yet here in the UK, only saw release in early 2017. It’s quite unusual for such a long wait with a family film like this, but nonetheless, Sing is finally here –… Read more

Film Reviews: Storks 

The first of two consecutive family film reviews – Storks – is here! I know you’ve all been waiting for this one! The other film up for review is Trolls – which movie wins? In my view, it’s Storks, all the way. This isn’t a put down on Trolls, which is a very good film… Read more

Film Reviews: Sausage Party

Ok, where do I even begin with this one?! Sausage Party (I had to be very careful googling that to get the movie poster) is an animated adventure film, set in a supermarket, that deals with one sausage’s realisation that the promised land beyond the doors is in fact one great big lie. It’s also… Read more
