OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY (2016)

The office Christmas party is entertaining at most, with all the office party cliches that have been the butt of jokes in all other similar movie genres this movie just squeezed as many as it could into the 145 minutes. Jennifer Aniston plays an uptight CEO who threatens to shut down her brothers branch, the branch manager T.J. miller throws an epic Christmas party to show a prospective client that they are the right people to work with and snag the client that could save all their jobs. This movie was fighting a losing battle because too many movies have already came out that turned the comedy punchlines into predictable scenes, so watch it at home because it is not worth your money at the cinema.

NOCTURNAL ANIMALS (2016)

Nocturnal animals has a promising trailer which manages to squeeze in all the interesting scenes from the movie making you believe that this drama thriller, will keep you guessing all the way through the movie. It all begins when an art gallery owner (Amy Adams) is surprised by her ex-husbands intentions (Jake Gyllenhaal) because of a violent novel he wrote and dedicated it to her. She is convinced that her ex-husband is trying to let her know that he has plans for her because of the betrayal that he was forced to experience. This movie was made in three parts, the first was based in the present, the second was the past which explained a little about how the characters split and the third which filled most of the movie focused on the book titled NOCTURNAL Animals which most of the exciting parts of the movie were shown. The movie was based on a book and should of remained just a book when watching it through to the end you discover that all the parts of the movie lead to a disappointing end which did not seem to make sense. She was trying to rekindle her old flame even though the book dedicated to her which she showed concerns with because it was a violent book dedicated to her.....? Watch the trailer and you will have seen the best parts of the movie.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES:OUT OF THE SHADOWS(2016)

Its been two years since the last TMNT movie and its been worth the wait. The second instalment was twice as good as the first movie because the director Dave Green managed to fit in so much more.The likes of Shredder, Baxter Stockman Bebop and Rocksteady in the mix added to the blend from cartoon tv show to blockbuster movie worked very well. TMNT out of the shadows has Shredder join forces with mad scientist Baxter Stockman and henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady to take over the world, the Turtles must also confront an even greater nemesis: the notorious Krang. This movie opens up the possibilities of a third instalment which will have you dive deeper in the world of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and looking forward to the nostalgia.

PROJECT ALMANAC (2015)

 Project Almanac had the potential to create a classic movie with a successful already proven formula, but fell way too short from the hype the preview created. The time travel conundrum isn't enough to stop people believing that anything is possible when a time machine is involved, which is why we the audience, have high expectations from the usual typical sci-fi flick. This movie succeeded in being different but lost its time machine pull. Too much time was spent creating the setting in the attempt of steering the audience to believe that creating a time machine is possible and not enough time was focused in the affected alternate universe. Alternate realities created by poor use of a time machine is what makes this genre interesting, but so much time was spent on blown out scenes that should of should of been edited. Project Almanac was shot in a first person perspective which seemed to tie into the key to show how things were eventually getting back on track, but the held camera view didn't help immerse you into the time travelling world. There are movies of the same genre that leave you mystified but this isn't one of them, save your money and time because all the good bits are in the preview which will save you 104 minutes of downtime.

THE ORDER 1886


The order on the PlayStation 4 succeeds in combining a movie and game experience in one but scarifies a lot of the flowing game play to immerse you in a theatre experience. People who expect non stop action will be disappointed because throughout the game you find yourself letting go of the controller while watching several cut scenes. The story and visuals are captivating this game plays well as a movie but is disappointing as a game. Hopefully the sequel will be more game than movie.

BIG HERO 6 (2014)


Disney does it again, an animated movie that is full of action and adventure that keeps you entertained from start to end. The robot Baymax and the boy named Hiro Hamada relationship grow as they have to rely on each other to solve the mysteries that lay ahead with the help of their new found super high tech nerd friends. This movie is full of humour that is likely to entertain the kids in us all. A double thumbs up, Big Hero 6 is one movie that watching with the kids will entertain you as well as them so don't be afraid to enjoy a another Disney successful movie.  

THE PURGE (2013)

The Purges main plot is based around the idea that to stop crime rate from escalating out of control, America would shut its emergency services down for 12 hrs during one night a year, to allow for the people to be able to get out their frustrations without the fear of consequence. During that night the law will close its eyes to whatever happens and whatever is illegal is considered legal for that night. The purge reminds us that without our emergency services at hand, we would be afraid to leave our homes. It does a good job in putting the viewer in the centre of what seems dangerous by creating an immersive environment that is similar to our own but without the safety net of the law. Even though the story was easy to take, the stupid things that led to the break down of the system were hard to swallow. Bad decision after bad decision led to unreasonable reactions that seemed to happen just so the story can move forward to the next scene. This stopped the roller coaster ride and forced you to question the reactions that took place. Wondering why someone would do such stupid things when their life is threatened. The movie just didn't manage to get the two thumbs up because of the silly things that had to happen just to enhance the atmosphere, Its just Average.

UPSIDE DOWN (2012)

A love story with a difference, that cleverly takes the point literally that men and women seem to be from to different planets. Kirsten Dunst plays Eden who lives on the well off privileged planet falls for Adam played by Jim Sturgess who lives on the poverty stricken planet. Both worlds even though are across from each other are bounded by the laws of gravity which pulls both of soul mates away from each other and in opposite directions. The twinned worlds with entwined gravities makes for an interesting story and spectacular visuals. Being from separated planets is not the only challenge their love has to master but the dangers that are faced with when they decide to ignore the laws that are put in place to separate the interaction between the hierarchy of class between rich and poor. This is one fantasy movie that takes a page out of inception and the matrix handbook, testing our sense of reality with worlds similar to our own but with a hint of difference. The difference that we only see in our imagination that comes alive in our dreams. An entertaining movie for ladies who enjoy drama and romance and a bit of Fantasy for the gents.

COMPULSIONS (2013)


There are some movies that actors and actress should just avoid because playing in them could damage their career. This is one of those movies that the stars couldn't shine bright enough to make you ignore the bad story and pointless scenes which didn't seem to tie together. The only thing that made sense in this movie was to put these successful actors in the mix, because they were the only draw card this movie had to offer. The actors did a great job playing the roles, but their is only so much you could do with such a shitty script. The story of two females  individual obsession coming together didn't make the story interesting. One woman obsessed with cooking the other obsessed with throwing up what ever she eats. Death by chef is what the movie should of focused on, but director chose to focus the majority of the movie on the food and preparation of the food. Boring and shitty don't make for a good ingredients for a successful movie. Bad movie, Bad story very, very badly done.

DETENTION OF THE DEAD (2012)

Detention of the dead tries to use a lot of movie cliches to make it a hit for a broader audience, but its scary movie antics felt more like a cop out of the previous scary movie series rather than a fresh view of on the comedy horror genre which struggled to get out of the shadows of the successful series. During the full length of the movie their were only few moments that made the detention of the dead stand out. The movie used its ability to make fun of itself as away of making the flaws in the storyline seem intentional which seemed to camouflage the faults which helped you focus on what was happening rather than trying make sense of such a silly plot. Zombie movies may be what is successful at the moment, but if they keep on ruining the genre with rushed out movies that try to ride on the back of other successful movies, than their dies the genre. A disappointment for even the Scary movie series, a must not watch. This review might saved a little viewing punishment, unless your a glutton for punishment then ignore the review and watch at your own risk.

MAN OF STEEL (2013)

Man of steel attempted to break new ground with the superman formula rather than playing it safe and sticking to what people expect would expect when comparing this new addition to the classics that have been done over and over again. It managed to do this by showing you a in-depth view of how it would feel for man of steel to be an outcast with his unique powers. His Parents also played an important role by explaining in detail what would make them send their only son to a distant world, and what it would mean for the people of Krypton. It also showed a little of the world of Krypton and how the evolved planet managed to destroy itself. Showing us a taste of what life was like on Krypton has now opened up the possibility for a prequel. This movie gave us drama that felt new even for such a familiar franchise and threw in an action the destroyed half of metropolis. A good around movie and a must watch for any superhero fan. Two thumbs up for a movement in the right direction.

THE BOONDOCKS SAINTS (1999)

A movie that stands out not just because of the outstanding cast but also because of the infectious storyline of two religious brothers who have decided to go renegade against the crime on the streets. These two Irish brothers fight crime against the corruption that has consumed their town with fast paced action, mixed up with  a little comical flair. Willeem Dafoe plays the FBI agent close enough on their tail that he discovers that their battle to get rid of the evil on the streets permanently might just be a good one. Billy Connolly is the icing on the cake to this movie, his role as the super assassin ties in brilliantly with the Irish brothers goals to do gods work by purifying the streets of the criminal under boss's that are trying to take over. A must watch to anyone who enjoys Action, Crime and Thrillers. A guaranteed two thumbs up for entertainment.

THE HOBBIT (2012)


The hobbit adds even more depth to the already enormous world that was shown in the fantasy world of middle earth which was introduced to us in the trilogy of the lord of the rings. As a prequel to the earlier successful movies the hobbit had to lay a story down that would connect us to the characters that we have grown to love and stay true to the story's elements that make J.R.R Tolkien books a hard to put down because of the immersed story. Peter Jackson as most would expect, done a marvellous job keeping you on edge with the action and intrigued in the storyline. The Fantasy adventure carried you through the imagination of Tolkien and the transformation to the big screen was surreal, which only Peter Jackson could of managed with the attention to detail that helped make this movie a successful thumbs up for entertainment. The beginning of the movie felt that it took a long time to get to the adventure but with the extensive cast that needed to be introduced it is only expected, otherwise the viewers would of felt disconnected to the stars. This was remedied with light humour to mix with the drama that had to explain the plot and space out the action. All in all a great edition to the fantasy series a must watch for Tolkiens fans and those who are fans of adventure.

COME OUT AND PLAY (2012)

Some books might read well and entertain a lot of readers but it doesn't always mean that they would 

make successful movies. Come out and play is proof of this, this was shown when what probably would of been a chapter of detail and excitement ended up being a two minute scene full on pointless silence which forced the director to create loops of pointless scenes that didn't really add much to the story telling. A lot of this movie felt as if scenes were being stretched out just to make a full length movie. The 105 minutes that the movie ran for, felt as if the scenes were trying to use delay tactics that seem to only highlighted illogical reactions by the stars rather than lead us to believe that this is how a normal couple would respond under these strange circumstances. A couple who take a trip to a remote island when the woman is seven months pregnant seems a little strange, but a husband who keeps on leaving her to fend for herself when trying to investigate the strange happenings is just stupid. Horrors need to keep you on the edge of your seat with fear not scratching you head with the disappointment of stupidity when it comes to the choices being made. A must not watch with the guarantee of saving yourself 105 minutes of doing anything but watching this mishmash of a movie.
