Midsommar

Just one year ago, director Ari Aster marked himself out as a talent worth watching with Hereditary. Now, with Midsommar, Aster has confirmed his status as royalty within the horror genre. If Hereditary was a tale of a family’s grief which soon delved into the supernatural, then Midsommar is a tale of a girl’s sorrow & heartache at the death of her family which is further amplified by existing in a toxic relationship with her dickhead boyfriend. It’s a film that does not go for jump scares, but rather takes the viewer on altogether tension filled ride that will leave audiences feeling just as unhinged as Florence Pugh’s main character.

Terminator: Dark Fate

Ever since Terminator 2: Judgement Day was released back in 1991, the Terminator series has been on a downward spiral. After the mediocrity of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines & Terminator Salvation, followed by the travesty that was Terminator: Genisys it comes as no surprise that Terminator: Dark Fate wants to put those films to rest and try once more to hit the heights of the classic first two films.

Zombieland: Double Tap

Sequels are regularly billed as hard to pull off. Often, the first film in a series is a breath of fresh air, full of new ideas and bringing renewed energy to tired thoughts, and the theory goes that their sequels never live up to the hype. Well, Zombieland: Double Tap would like to remind you that sequels may lose some of the originality but don’t have to lose their sense of sheer fucking fun. Read More…

Godzilla: King Of The Monsters

In 2014, Godzilla returned to cinemas with a film that garnered generally favourable reviews. The one overriding criticism being that we did not see enough of Godzilla himself, hidden away for the most part until the films brawling finale. Skip forward five years and Godzilla: King of the Monsters allays any doubts about how much of Godzilla we will see this time round, by turning the volume up to 11 and providing more damage to world landmarks than a Roland Emmerich film on acid.

Ready Or Not

Weddings. They’re always the same, aren’t they? Uncomfortable photos, embarrassing speeches, family members pretending to get along, human sacrifice and devil worship. That’s the line Ready or Not draws in the sand early on, and you’re either in or out from that point onwards in this comically violent and darkly humorous survival-horror film which is a lot smarter than it first appears.

Joker

Powerful, disturbing and chaotic. Three words that merely scratch the surface on what to expect when watching Joker for the first time. It’s a film that is deeply unsettling at times, while completely sympathetic at others and if it does nothing but make you feel wholly unnerved then it has accomplished what it set out to do.
