Mini Reviews #11

Mega Python vs. Gatoroid (2011) Director: Mary Lambert Starring: Debbie Gibson, Tiffany, A Martinez An extraordinary case of a film being so bad that it comes full circle to being utterly enjoyable to watch. Debbie Gibson and Tiffany rehash an old eighties pop rivalry as two women fighting both each other and a cast of…

Walking On Sunshine (2014)

Remember a couple of weeks back when at the very beginning of my review for Jersey Boys I reiterated my undying love for musicals? Cut to two days ago and it seems that God, if there is such a being, has heard of my penchant and sent a film to earth to test my love…

The Fault In Our Stars (2014)

In the run up to the release of The Fault In Our Stars, I felt very much as though I was the only person on the planet who had not read John Green’s 2012 best selling novel. Even when I was one myself, young adult fiction never really found a place in my reading preferences…

Nightmares of the utterly cringeworthy event are still had to this day, and…

22 Jump Street (2014)

It has been two years since the cinematic remake of nineteen eighties police procedural 21 Jump Street hit the big screen and surprised everybody with its glorious self awareness and unreserved comic satire. The film really hit the sweet spot in terms of nostalgia, reverence for the source material and struck gold with the chemistry…

Edge Of Tomorrow (2014)

In the days leading up to my visit to the cinema to see Edge of Tomorrow, there was one phrase that kept appearing everywhere I looked, “Groundhog Day meets Aliens“. Being a big fan of both of those films, the prospect of a star studded, big budget mash up seemed very appealing. In what is…
