Review – Vanquish

Directed by the writer of Bad Boys, Middle Men and Code Name: The Cleaner comes Vanquish, a movie so empty it evaporates from your mind before you blink.

Review – Initiation

People who know me, know 90’s classic slasher Scream is my favourite film of all time. I love it so much, I end up comparing every other slasher flick with it. Initiation was no exception, and I have to admit – this was pretty good. The movie takes place at Whiton University, where a case …

Review – ‘The Courier’

The UK has a monopoly on the kind of stiff-upper-lip-MI6 spy thriller genre that occasionally delivers an ice-cold classic like ‘Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy’. With a name like Benedict Cumberbatch involved, I was interested to see how the real life story of ‘The Courier’ would turn out. Greville Wynne (Benedict Cumberbatch) an ordinary salesman, gets …
