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…

A relatively quiet week in the world of cinema means that I am able to dip my toe in to TV Corner, this time combining it with another post style that I have neglected of late, the top ten list. Anybody that knows me will tell you that when it comes to childhood cartoons, theme…

The Water Diviner (2014)

It feels like quite a while since I went to the cinema to watch something that wasn’t intended for children or young adults. With recent reviews of Home, Insurgent, Cinderella (and a trip to The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water that I didn’t feel the need to write about), the prospect of Russell Crowe’s…
