Daddy’s Home 2

Daddy’s Home 2 If you enjoyed Daddy’s home and thought there was nowhere left to take this story line, boy were you wrong! Likewise, if you thought a sequel might not be as funny and may be trying too hard, wrong again! In fact this is quicker and funnier, and the chemistry between the actors […]

Justice League

Could this be the best superhero movie of all time? I think maybe, just maybe, it is! Director Zack Snyder has succeeded where others have recently failed, blending some extremely brilliant yet not cheesy comedy in with the pseudo seriousness of a super hero film. The latest installment from the DC comic franchise runs rings […]

The Snowman

The Snowman It’s widely known that this film hasn’t had rave reviews, and for this I’m quite perplexed and I have to disagree with the harsh feedback. Maybe I’m not as intellectual as the critics and I just love a good crime story? Based on the novel of the same name and part of a […]

Battle of the Sexes

The Battle of the Sexes – The Billie Jean King Story Whilst this movie is based on a story from 44 years ago, it’s still funny, intelligent, moving, and astonishingly as relevant today as it was 44 years ago in more ways than one. Arguably one of the world’s greatest Tennis Players, Billie Jean King […]

Victoria and Abdul

  This film may be set in the early 1900’s but it’s important to realise early on that while authentic, it is far from feeling like some dreary and old film. Rather, it’s every bit as powerful as any modern day romance film.   Victoria and Abdul chronicles the story of Queen Victoria played by […]

Hidden Figures

JC REVIEWS ‘HIDDEN FIGURES’ Sometimes a movie comes along that can change you, making you truly think and reflect on your own behavior and ignorance. For me, Hidden Figures is one of those movies as it powerfully uncovers a true story that will have you laughing and crying all at the same time. Set in […]

Patriot’s Day

  JC REVIEWS ‘PATRIOT’S DAY’ This film made me lose all respect for the Academy Awards. Why wasn’t it nominated? I am gob smacked that it wasn’t honored as one of the best and most important films of the year, if not several years. Patriots Day doesn’t just explore the Boston Marathon bombings, it transports […]

50 Shades Darker

JC REVIEWS 50 SHADES DARKER I wanted too badly to dislike this new edition to the 50 Shades trilogy, I wanted to find it crass, tacky, and a total cliché. Try as I may, I couldn’t help but love this film and almost everything about it. It kicks butt on the first film in every […]
