Posted 3:05pm Sunday 4th October 2015

Rating: 4/5 Sicario follows FBI agent, Kate Macer (Emily Blunt), as she enters into the CIA’s secretive world. The agency has been trying to shut down the Mexican drug cartel that governs the border between the USA and Mexico. As a drug taskforce agent, Kate has dealt with many domestic Read more...

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

Posted 1:52pm Sunday 27th September 2015

Rating: 3/5 Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials is the second instalment of The Maze Runner series, following the survivors from the first film as they discover that the world outside the maze is just as dangerous as the one within it — if not more so. I first stumbled across Dylan O’Brien Read more...

Ricki and the Flash

Posted 1:34pm Sunday 13th September 2015

Rating: 4/5 Meryl Streep is not only an incredible actor with a great set of pipes, there is also just something unique about her that leaves me in awe. But, for me, nothing will ever top her performance as the stylishly cold Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada. However, with impressive Read more...

Fantastic Four

Posted 1:13pm Sunday 30th August 2015

Rating: 2/5 A t best, the 2005 version of Fantastic Four was average. The acting was poor, the storyline was mediocre, and the flexible guy really freaked me out. But with Miles Teller now playing Reeds Richards (the flexible one), I had hope for the revival of Fantastic Four. Teller is Read more...

Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation

Posted 1:31pm Sunday 16th August 2015

Rating: 3/5 I never used to be a fan of the Mission: Impossible franchise. Maybe I was too young to appreciate it — or maybe I was jealous of Katie Holmes — but with Tom Cruise’s love of Scientology and his overwhelming arrogance, I don’t know why I’d have ever Read more...

Mr Holmes

Posted 1:23pm Sunday 9th August 2015

Rating: 4/5 In my mind, Benedict Cumberbatch will always be Sherlock Holmes. My utter love for Benedict Cumberbatch in this role made me a little sceptical of Ian McKellen’s portrayal of Sherlock Holmes in Mr. Holmes, but his performance is worthy of recognition and, perhaps, even an Read more...

Ant-Man

Posted 2:19pm Sunday 2nd August 2015

Rating: 3/5 While I’m a huge fan of the Marvel films, and the concept of a universe teeming with superheroes is my wildest dream come true, my expectations of Ant-Man were incredibly low. Ants, while known for their strength, are not something that I would rave about. They aren’t Read more...

Pitch Perfect 2

Posted 1:12pm Sunday 24th May 2015

Rating 3/5 As a general rule, I don’t laugh in cinemas. I don’t cry, I don’t text and I don’t put my feet on the seats. While I do this out of respect for other cinema-goers, the main reason for my self-control is undeniably fear. It’s also judgment. Therefore, Read more...

Capping Show Review: Campus Watch

Posted 1:21pm Sunday 17th May 2015

Rating: 4/5 As a seasoned attendee of The Capping Show (seasoned may be a little too generous a term — I’ve only been to three), I was expecting big things. If the renowned humour associated with the comic event failed to brighten the gloomy pit in which I am currently residing, I was Read more...

Lucky Them

Posted 1:33pm Sunday 10th May 2015

Rating: 4/5 Have you ever wasted your life reminiscing over the one that got away? Maybe you pined after him as he sat in front of you in class until one day he just stopped showing up. Maybe she dropped you like last year’s Karen Walker sunnies, replacing you with an upgraded, new and Read more...
