Review: Gravity

Review: Gravity

What a stomach spinning 91 minutes. After waiting almost a month since the U.S. release for Alfonso Cuarón’s, Sandra Bullock hurdling Gravity to hit UK cinemas, I am happy with the finished product. Cuarón seems to have been on a seven year hiatus since his 2006 smash hit Children of Men, but the wait has...
Review: Captain Phillips

Review: Captain Phillips

After the misstep that was 2010’s Green Zone, Paul Greengrass is back on form with Captain Phillips, a mostly successful thriller that features stellar lead performances from Tom Hanks and Barkhad Abdi.

Review: Oblivion

Review: Oblivion

This film has received a lot of undue criticism. It’s been slated for being completely unoriginal and ripping off a myriad of other movies, including Moon, Planet of the Apes, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Independence Day, and Wall-E. And while Oblivion is a lot like these films, to judge it as merely a rip off is very unfair, especially in...
