Finding Dory (2016)

I’m just going to begin by putting it out there. 2003’s Finding Nemo is probably my favourite Pixar movie of all time (with Wall-E a very, very close second). Funnily enough, for a film that has such close ties to my all time studio favourite, I came to Finding Dory with very little anticipation, perhaps because…

The BFG (2016)

Through a combination of big screen adaptations and much loved literary adventures, it would be fair to say that the collected works of Roald Dahl had a significant impact on the weaving of the fabric of my childhood. From James & The Giant Peach and The Witches to Matilda and Fantastic Mr. Fox, the iconic…

Ghostbusters (2016)

From the second the news broke that director Paul Feig was to reboot the iconic Ghostbusters franchise with an all female spectre fighting cast, it would be fair to say that the cinematic universe was split in to two divided camps, a camp of people who despaired over what they thought was an unnecessary move…

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (2016)

The Secret Life Of Pets (2016)

With the release of what it feels like is already a done deal for biggest kid’s hit of the year in Finding Dory, a competition is well and truly under way for second place on the podium of summer’s most popular animated movie. One seemingly strong contender for said runner-up position comes from the team that…

The Boss (2016)

It’s funny to think that the woman who I grew up knowing as the sweet, sugary Sookie St. James in The Gilmore Girls has somehow become one of the most sought after, bankable stars in Hollywood over the past few years. By today’s industry standards, Melissa McCarthy is pretty much the antithesis of what a…

The Nice Guys (2016)

The Nice Guys was one of those rare cinematic experiences for me where I went in to it having absolutely no knowledge of the picture beyond the look of the poster. Not a trailer was seen, not an interview was watched, not a review was read before I sat down to watch it. With only…
