Mini Reviews #12

Tammy (2014) Director: Ben Falcone Starring: Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Allison Janney A comedy that promises so much and delivers very little. Tammy seemed as though it would be a personal home run for me, starring a handful of my favourite actresses and having Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids mode at the helm, but the movie…

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 (2014)

Well, here we are again.

The Imitation Game (2014)

In a purely cinematic sense, nothing gives me greater joy than waving goodbye to the brainless blockbusters of the summer and welcoming the autumn and winter season of films that are here for one thing, the prospect of awards.

The Maze Runner (2014)

It seems as though Hollywood can’t go more than a few months these days without bringing out yet another young adult dystopian tale adapted from a best selling novel that I have never heard of. Having already seen and enjoyed Divergent this year, it was now the turn of The Maze Runner, the film version…
