Latest Reviews

Castle

The ridiculously sublime adventures of Rick Castle and his much more qualified friends. Not exactly high art, but a whole lot of fun, with greater depth and better plots than it needed.

The Mitchells vs The Machines

Utterly inventive, brilliantly funny, and beautifully crafted. The central plot is a little by-the-numbers, but everything else is as original as they come, and the movie shines as a result.

Falcon and the Winter Soldier

A decent fleshing out of two interesting characters from the MCU, with a solid ending and some powerful themes, yet ultimately let down by a lacklustre first half and a generally poor, rushed execution.

Identity Thief

A solid comedy with some interesting (albeit slightly over-the-top) characters and more societal nuance than expected.

The Proposal

A surprisingly funny and interesting film with a great cast and a brilliant amount of Betty White.

The Accountant

A surprisingly clever and different action movie with some great moments, clever twists, and an overall solid plot. Could have been tightened up in a few places, and the portrayal of autism is maybe lacking in nuance, but still enjoyable.
