CineKatz Not-So-Secret Santa Review Swap: Dredd Review

Very pleased to once again be taking part in the Cinematic Katzenjammer Not-So-Secret Santa Review Swap. When I took part in the one in July, I was given quite possibly one of the most pretentious films I’ve ever seen with Wrong. It seems fitting then that for this one, after the initial film I was… Continue reading CineKatz Not-So-Secret Santa Review Swap: Dredd Review

Politic-A-Thon: You’ve Been Trumped Review

I think it’s about time to talk about a documentary in the Politic-a-Thon and the first documentary I’ve chosen is one that hasn’t received nearly as much attention as it should get and is probably the film that has made me the most angry in recent years, simply through the subject of the film, Donald… Continue reading Politic-A-Thon: You’ve Been Trumped Review

Politic-A-Thon: A Royal Affair Review

Thought I’d do something a little bit different in this part of the Politic-A-Thon and go with a film looking at the older political struggles in a country and to that end I’ve chosen A Royal Affair. Now on the surface, A Royal Affair looks like a stuffy costume drama but when you watch it,… Continue reading Politic-A-Thon: A Royal Affair Review

Politic-A-Thon: The Campaign Review

Continuing with the Politic-A-Thon, I think it’s time to talk about a political comedy and I think I’ve chosen right. There are a lot of comedic possibilities that can be created from a US Congressional Election and The Campaign makes good use of these different elements. From baby kissing to Communist bashing, all aspects of… Continue reading Politic-A-Thon: The Campaign Review

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Review

Since the first trailer was released, I was really looking forward to the first instalment of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit films. Then the warning signs began, first the footage unveiled at Cinema-Con was badly received and then came the news that there would be 3 films of The Hobbit. I started to get nervous but today, I… Continue reading The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Review

Frankenweenie Review

Over the past year, stop motion animation has been seeing a resurgence in popularity that mainly started after the release of Coraline in 2009. First Aardman went back to plasticine with the excellent The Pirates In An Adventure With Scientists and Laika continued their dominance in stop motion with ParaNorman (which I haven’t seen yet). Now the… Continue reading Frankenweenie Review

Looper Review (contains spoilers)

At the start of the year, I knew virtually nothing about Looper but as the year went on and more clips from the film started to be released, I got more and more curious about the film. When the reviews started coming out praising how intelligent the film was, I knew I had to see… Continue reading Looper Review (contains spoilers)
