Film Review: Burnt

As the old adage goes, "if you can't handle the heat, get out of the kitchen". It's a mantra that is echoed by an the elite cult of celebrity chefs - Ramsey, Oliver, uh...those hairy biker dudes - and for Bradley Cooper's character in Burnt, it couldn't be more appropriate.

Film Review: Back to the Future III

We've seen the past, the present and the future; now, in the third and final Back to the Future film, director Robert Zemeckis transports us back in time further than ever before to 1885 and the Old gun-slinging West. Here are my thoughts on the concluding chapter of this iconic cinema series.

Film Review: Back to the Future II

What do you think when you think Back to the Future II? Hoverboards? Flying cars? Pizza hydrators? Renowned for its outlandish predictions about life 30 years down the track, Back to the Future Part II sees the Doc and Marty jetting off on another adventure - but this time, their destination is the far-flung future of...2015!

Classic Film: Back to the Future

"This is heavy" - Marty McFly

Director: Robert Zemeckis
Starring: Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover
Runtime: 116 minutes

Very few films stand the test of time, and even fewer of those are about having a crush on your own mother. Weirdly enough, Back to the Future pulls this off; regarded as a 80's classic that is as good today as it was upon its release 30 years ago, Back to the Future isn't just an all-round fantastic film - it's a bonafide icon of cinema.

Film Review: Crimson Peak

Less frighty and more frilly nightie; Guillermo del Toro’s sumptuous Crimson Peak is a classic romance tale disguised as a haunted house horror.

Film Review: The Walk

The original tagline for Richard Donner’s 1978 Superman film was “You’ll believe a man can fly”, but even that doesn’t compare to the sense of awe you’ll feel while witnessing Robert Zemeckis’ The Walk

Film Review: Legend

Brian Helgeland's stylish gangster film Legend has a lot going for it - but it falls a little short of attaining true greatness through a needlessly winding narrative and misguided messaging.

Verdict: Fear the Walking Dead Season 1

This post contains spoilers for season 1 of Fear the Walking Dead - you have been warned.

Fear the Walking Dead is a spinoff of AMC's highly-successful, The Walking Dead. With an entirely new cast and fresh locale (Los Angeles rather than Atlanta), Fear the Walking Dead winds back the clock and gives audiences a glimpse at how things began through an inconsistent and sometimes straight-up dull first season.

Film Review: The Martian

Director: Ridley Scott

The red planet is no stranger to cinematic visitors, but nothing has committed it to film so strikingly as Ridley Scott's The Martian
