Bridget Jones’s Baby

Year: 2016 Director: Sharon Maguire Starring: RenĂ©e Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey Written by Sarah Buddery It’s hard to believe that it’s been 15 years since we first saw RenĂ©e Zellweger as the loveable, memoir-scribbling, singleton Bridget Jones, but she is indeed back. The original, ‘Bridget Jones’s Diary’ […]

Irrational Man

Year: 2015 Director: Woody Allen Starring: Joaquin Phoenix, Emma Stone Written by Rhys Wortham Love stories often involve fluffy stuff and some kind of “they were meant to be” theme, which means the industry usually churns out clichĂ©-ridden projects like ‘The Notebook’. Some stray from the usual theme […]

War Dogs

Year: 2016 Director: Todd Phillips Starring: Jonah Hill, Miles Teller Written by Tom Sheffield If there was one thing I could guarantee I would see during my numerous visits to the cinema over the summer, it was the trailer for ‘War Dogs’ before the film I was about to […]

Anthropoid

Year: 2016 Director: Sean Ellis Starring: Cillian Murphy, Jamie Dornan Written by Fiona Underhill There is a memorial in my local park (Jephson’s Gardens, Leamington Spa) in the shape of a parachute, with seven Czech names on it. It commemorates the parachutists, who were based in Leamington during […]

Don’t Breathe

Year: 2016 Director: Fede Alvarez Starring: Stephen Lang, Jane Levy, Dylan Minnette, Daniel Zovatto Written by Noah Jackson The summer season of 2016 has been a fairly disappointing experience for film enthusiasts like myself. It arguably reached its peak in May with ‘Captain America: Civil War’, and ended […]

Yoga Hosers

Year: 2016 Director: Kevin Smith Starring: Lily-Rose Depp, Harley Quinn Smith, Johnny Depp, Adam Brody Written by Dalton Brown Boredom can sometimes lead to interesting experiences. It’s actually one of the reasons why I chose to sit through Kevin Smith’s latest film ‘Yoga Hosers’. With his daughter (Harley […]

Kubo And The Two Strings

Year: 2016 Director: Travis Knight Starring: Charlize Theron, Art Parkinson, Matthew McConaughey, Ralph Fiennes (all voice) Written by Sarah Buddery Animation studios Laika might not be considered in the same conversations as Pixar or Dreamworks, but there’s absolutely no reason why they shouldn’t be, and their latest offering, […]

Morgan

Year: 2016 Director: Luke Scott Starring: Kate Mara, Anya Taylor-Joy, Toby Jones Written by Tom Sheffield With Ridley Scott’s company producing, and his son Luke Scott directing, I had hoped that ‘Morgan’ would be another under-marketed film ready to surprise me when I watch it. It’s fair to […]

Hell Or High Water

Year: 2016 Director: David Mackenzie Starring: Ben Foster, Chris Pine, Jeff Bridges, Gil Birmingham Written by Tom Sheffield ‘Hell or High Water’ has been one of my most anticipated films over the last few months. After what I personally consider to be a fairly disappointing summer of films, I […]

Tale Of Tales

Year: 2016 Director: Matteo Garrone Starring: Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, Toby Jones, John C. Reilly, Bebe Cave Written by Abbie Eales In ‘Tale of Tales’ Matteo Garrone takes the basis of three Italian folk tales – originally collected in the 15th century by Giambattista Basile (who also made […]

The Huntsman: Winter’s War

Year: 2016 Director: Cedric Nicolas-Troyan Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Jessica Chastain, Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt Written by Fiona Underhill I was quite excited when early images and posters were released for this film – despite being called ‘The Huntsman’, the focus of the film certainly seemed to be on […]
