Ricky Gervais: Humanity

Have you ever imagined yourself belly laughing at a cot death joke? Nope, me either. Until Humanity happened that is. Ricky Gervais’ latest stand up tour commenced earlier in the year and he descended upon Birmingham at the end of June and of course I’d eagerly snatched up tickets the morning they were released. It’s been a while since Gervais has done a stand up … Continue reading Ricky Gervais: Humanity

War on Everyone

Spontaneously buying DVDs in the supermarket without prior research is always risky. We all know you can never trust what the cover says, of course they’re not going to say ‘The Biggest Pile of Crap Released This Year!’ are they? Of course they’re going to sing the film’s praises and trick you into buying it because it’s ‘side-splittingly hilarious’ or whatever lie they’ve plastered on … Continue reading War on Everyone

Henson and Janelle Monáe, Hidden Figures is an uplifting untold true story of three African-American women who made history when they served pivotal roles in the early years of the US Space Program.

Ragnarok

What’s bigger than a giant mythological snake that lives underwater? The colossal feeling of disappointment that this film brings. If you came looking for awesome Viking action then look elsewhere, the Ragnarok DVD cover lies. The ancient and modern worlds both collide when an archeologist uncovers the true meaning of the secret runes discovered in the Oseberg ship. Firstly, no they don’t. In fact there is very … Continue reading Ragnarok

The Babadook – A Very Un-Scary Halloween

This year for halloween me and the other half decided to go to the cinema. The other option was go out and get drunk, and in hindsight I think we made the wrong choice. I’d been waiting to see The Babadook for months, ever since I first read about it online. All the reviews seemed positive, the trailer and stills from the film all looked … Continue reading The Babadook – A Very Un-Scary Halloween

Annabelle

The Conjuring spin off Annabelle is quite possibly one of the best horror films I’ve seen in a while. Let me begin by saying I don’t scare easily when it comes to horror films, I’ve grown pretty much immune. Obviously the tension is heightened when you see a horror in the cinema, but usually I don’t feel ‘scared’. Annabelle had me shitting myself. It’s like director … Continue reading Annabelle

Tammy

I am unashamed to admit to being a bit of a Melissa McCarthy fan. Ever since her appearance as hilarious misfit Megan in Bridesmaids, she has been one of my favourite comedy actresses. Despite this though, I’d been looking forward to Tammy since seeing the first trailer ages ago with a pinch of dread. McCarthy seems to be getting typecast as the butch, loud, funny … Continue reading Tammy
