The Girl with All the Gifts

Year: 2016 Director: Colm McCarthy Starring: Gemma Arterton, Glenn Close, Paddy Considine, Sennia Nanua Written by Abbie Eales Based on a novel of the same name, ‘The Girl with All the Gifts’ is a horror/drama set in a dystopian Britain, where an aggressive fungal infection has turned most […]

The Wicker Man

Year: 2006 Director: Neil LaBute Starring: Nicolas Cage, Ellen Burstyn Written by Noah Jackson Let us go back in time to a simpler time. A time when Adam Sandler wasn’t peddling shit to the masses and looking suicidal whilst doing it, and a time where the world had yet […]

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 […]

Our Kind Of Traitor

Year: 2016 Director: Susanna White Starring: Ewan McGregor, Stellan Skarsgård, Damian Lewis, Naomie Harris Written by Tom Sheffield Straight from the get-go, the trailer for ‘Our Kind Of Traitor’ caught my attention. For starters, the cast alone – which includes Ewan McGregor, Stellan Skarsgård, Naomie Harris, Damian Lewis […]

Nerve

Year: 2016 Director(s): Henry Joost, Ariel Schulman Starring: Emma Roberts, Dave Franco Written by Sarah Buddery From one half of the directorial team behind  ‘Catfish’ (2010) – a film highlighting the dark side of online dating – ‘Nerve’ at least promised to be a thoroughly modern thriller, exploring the idea of […]

Eye In The Sky

Year: 2016 Director: Gavin Hood Starring: Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul, Alan Rickman, Barkhad Abdi Written by Tom Sheffield When I first saw the trailer for ‘Eye In The Sky’ I was really intrigued by the storyline, and I was even more interested to see how a film based […]

Jason Bourne

Year: 2016 Director: Paul Greengrass Starring: Matt Damon, Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel, Riz Ahmed Written by Daniel Chadwick-Shubat Jason Bourne AKA David Webb is, in my opinion, cinema’s greatest spy. His skills in badassery have graced our screen for 14 years, and his tortured soul […]

The Shallows

Year: 2016 Director: Jaume Collet-Serra Starring: Blake Lively Written by Patrick Alexander When I first heard about a potential true spirit-sequel to Steven Spielberg’s 1975 mystery masterpiece ‘Jaws’, it was hard not be intrigued. Shark-fair has been so incredulously overdone in the past decade from ‘Jurassic Shark’ to […]

Desierto

Year: 2015 Director: Jonás Cuarón Starring: Gael Garcia Bernal, Jeffrey Dean Morgan Written by Daniel Chadwick-Shubat Warning, warning – this film is not entirely English! Oh the humanity! Just kidding, we know by now that you folks are into your culturally diverse cinema, so we know you’re going […]

The Neon Demon

Year: 2016 Director: Nicolas Winding Refn Starring: Elle Fanning, Christina Hendricks, Keanu Reeves Written by Noah Jackson Well, this is it; the movie so infuriatingly dull and shallow, but at the same time rich with metaphor and symbolism. The movie that will come off slow and plodding, but […]

Now You See Me 2

Year: 2016 Director: John M. Chu Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Lizzy Caplan Written by Daniel Chadwick-Shubat Movies are magical in more ways than one; they create fantastical worlds that only exist in the mind, and have brought to life some of the most […]

Green Room

Year: 2016 Director: Jeremy Saulnier Starring: Patrick Stewart, Imogen Poots, Anton Yelchin Written by Patrick Alexander and Noah Jackson Somewhere between psychotic and iconic; somewhere between “I want it” and “I’ve got it”; somewhere between being sober and being lifted; somewhere between indie-punk-rock tour and withdrawn neo-Nazi grunge […]
