Slow West (2015)

Wait, do you hear that? That’s right, it’s the sound of summer approaching. In a cinematic sense, this means that film lovers of my particular breed, that is viewers who are not interested in the superhero blockbusters or gross out comedies that flood the box office from now until the beginning of awards season at…

Jurassic World (2015)

In any other year, the return of the Jurassic Park franchise to the cinematic universe would have been the biggest story around. However, the reawakening of a certain force and certain Star Wars has meant that much of the fanfare that one would expect Jurassic World to be greeted with seems to have been somewhat…

Spy (2015)

The cinematic partnership of Paul Feig and Melissa McCarthy is one that has brought me feelings of immense enjoyment over the years. Both Bridesmaids and The HeatĀ are, in my opinion, two of the funniest female-centric comedies of the last half a decade, and it is under Feig’s writing and direction that I feel McCarthy is…

Pitch Perfect 2 (2015)

Back in the very earliest weeks of Oh! That Film Blog, one of my first reviews was a brief and rather pessimistic take on the first Pitch Perfect movie at the end of 2012. Though I did not appear to particularly enjoy the film upon its release, several repeat viewings in the intervening years have…

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

Up until about ten days ago, I had never seen a single Mad Max movie. Having decided to buy in to the hype and not wanting to go in to the 2015 instalment with no background or context, over the course of a week I spent my evenings catching up on the three previous films…

Top Five (2014)

He may be one the greatest stand up comics of the last fifty years, but it would be far to say that Chris Rock’s fortunes in the realms of cinema have been extremely mixed at best. In fact, with the exception of the very enjoyable documentary Good Hair from 2009, I would go so far…

May The Fourth Be With You! Star Wars Questionnaire

Happy Star Wars day everybody! For those who don’t know (where have you been?), May the fourth, for obvious word play reasons, has become the internationally recognised day to throw your geek hat on and celebrate the greatest saga ever told. In honour of this holy day in the cinematic calendar, I have decided to…
