Sherlock=plot a bit thick but a solid emotional payoff and a great send-off, and Taboo; murky, miserable and a tad slow but a primal guttural performance from Tom Hardy, I’ve…

Start your Baby Groot love-ins now!!

Dropping like a well-needed bomb of joy, fun and awesomeness last night was the first full trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2: OMG! So much to dissect here.

Scorsese returns with Silence!!

A story that had taken him 30 years to get to the screen, not to mention 15 months in post production, it felt very much like we would never see Scorsese’s tale of 13th Century Jesuit priests searching Feudal Japan for a fellow priest. Rumours abound of 4 hr cuts and director perfectionism gone to…

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 knows how to look cool!!

In 2014 James Gunn surprised everyone with a critically lauded, and blockbuster smash hit for Marvel’s ever growing cinematic universe. Full of wit, inventiveness and fun, it was surprising as it was an adaptation of a relatively unknown property. But with an effective marketing campaign playing into that irreverence it took off massively.  Now he…
