For many, like me, it would probably be up in an aeroplane. But around 4000 people worldwide can say for them it’s been at the top of Mount Everest.
Hollywood has visited the world’s tallest mountain (standing at a whopping 29,029 ft) a number of times before but never in such big budget style. … More Everest Review
The recent batch of films franchises based on young adult novels have been a mixed bag. The Hunger Games films were mostly excellent whereas the two Divergent series films were pretty poor. Both Maze Runner movies are somewhere in the middle – just plain old average.
The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials is very similar in terms of quality to the first Maze Runner – it has an intriguing first hour or so and then descends deeply into daftness in the second half. … More The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials Review
“London in the 60s, everyone had a story about the Krays,” proclaims the attention-grabbing the opening line of the film. This appears to have been the case as the fact that the rich and famous of the era regularly rubbed shoulders with the crimelord Kray twins made them cult figures whose iconic status still lives on today.
Fast forward to 2015 and after a number of books, documentaries and the 1990 film The Krays, as director Brian Hegelend (writer of L.A. Confidential and director of A Knights Tale) brings Legend into cinemas to recount the legacy of Reggie and Ronnie Kray. … More Legend Review

Hitman: Agent 47 is the second attempt at adapting the popular Hitman videogames series into a Hollywood hit film. The first attempt Hitman (2007) tried and failed miserably to turn the beloved videogames into a successful film franchise as not many people went to see it and even people fewer liked it. The production and … More Hitman: Agent 47 Review

Holidays, or vacations as my American readers would call them (yes I have American readers because we international outchea baby!), can go one of either two ways. They can be unforgettable experiences which you will always treasure or they can be disappointing trips which you will never want to look back on. Unfortunately, Vacation is … More Vacation (2015) Review
Personally I’ve never really been a big fan of horror films. That’s not because I’m scared or anything. Honestly I’m not. Look, I’m not scared alright! Anyway, horror films have just never really appealed to me. But recently I watched 2012’s Sinister and was pleasantly surprised as the intriguing mystery filled storyline along with a … More Sinister 2 Review
