BRIGSBY BEAR [2017]

Slightly borrowing a concept from other films, this is a story founded in a world of fantasy, much like James’ favourite show, Brigsby Bear. But no one he meets has heard of his favourite show once he ventures out into the world; a man…

THOR: RAGNAROK [2017]

2017 has seen two superhero films that I actually enjoyed. Considering that apart from The Watchmen, I’ve never enjoyed one of these films on any level, this seems quite the achievement. Even better, Logan and Ragnarok couldn’t be more different despite both coming from…

LOGAN [2017] – AN EXERCISE IN CRITICISING MYSELF [SPOILERS]

I didn’t like this movie as much as sati would have liked, which prompted me to watch a few older X-men films, which I enjoyed surprisingly, and then this one again. Several times actually, as I was ignorant to the incredible dialogue, Jackman’s incredible…

THE SHAPE OF WATER [2017]

Directed by: Guillermo del Toro Written by: Guillermo del Toro (screenplay by), Vanessa Taylor (screenplay by) Starring: Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins Surely the one of the most moving films in recent memory, amazingly emotional moments are captured within a story…

DETROIT [2017]

Directed by: Kathryn Bigelow Written by: Mark Boal Starring: John Boyega, Anthony Mackie, Algee Smith, Eddie Troy,  Just a touch heavy-handed, Detroit effectively gets its rather obvious point across thanks to a sharp sense of suspense and misdirection, and a fantastic turn from an…

LUCKY [2017]

Directed by: John Carroll Lynch Written by:  Logan Sparks (screenplay), Drago Sumonja (screenplay) Starring: Harry Dean Stanton, David Lynch, Ron Livingston Watching Lucky not long after Harry’s passing feels like a homage to his work. This is especially apparent given the core theme that…

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI [2017]

Directed by: Martin McDonagh Written by: Martin McDonagh Starring:Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell It is fantastic to see the forever dependable Frances McDormand as a lead. This instantly means the film is a must-watch. She also has the advantage of leading a fantastic film, and…

DOWNSIZING [2017]

Originally posted on Cinema Axis. Everyone’s favourite man of the moment stars in yet another decidedly average film. The concept was interesting, but the execution was… well, tedious. Downsizing is described as a social satire, where people can decide to shrink to five inches…

JAWBONE [2017]

Directed by: Thomas Napper Written by: Johnny Harris Starring:  Johnny Harris, Ian McShane, Ray Winstone, Michael Smiley Big thanks to Mark for turning me onto this one. You are a champ mate. Rather than depicting boxing as the glamorous (though corrupt) sport that we…

THE DISASTER ARTIST [2017]

Directed by James Franco Written by Scott Neustadter (screenplay), Michael H. Weber (screenplay), Greg Sestero (Book) Starring James Franco, Dave Franco, Ari Graynor, Seth Rogen, Alison Brie, Paul Scheer, Zac Efron, Jacki Weaver The story of Tommy Wiseau and his bizarro-creation The Room is…
