The Conjuring

Paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren work to help a family terrorised by a dark presence in their farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.  The first trailer released gave almost nothing away. It’s intriguing and definitely gave me a chill. THE CONJURING, based on true life events, sees Ed and ...

The Heat Review

An uptight FBI Agent is paired with a foul-mouthed Boston cop to take down a ruthless drug lord.  THE HEAT is laugh out load funny with Mullins (Melissa McCarthy) cracking almost every swear word throughout the film. Her jokes are original, some would say she had gone ‘too far’, but only McCarthy would get away with such an act. Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) is a pushy and poised workaholic...

Despicable Me 2 Review

Gru, the girls, the hilarious minions and a love interest get tangled along the adventures in Despicable Me 2. Gru is recruited by the Anti-Villain League to help deal with a powerful new super criminal.  Animation and CGI has taken over the film world and allowed us to create wonderful and magical imagery (when it’s in the right hands of course). DESPICABLE ME was released in 2010 when anim...

A Haunted House Review

Malcolm and Kisha move into their dream home, but soon learn a demon also resides there. When Kisha becomes possessed, Malcolm – determined to keep his sex life on track – turns to a priest, a psychic and a team of ghost busters for help.  In the past decade, parody and ‘spoof’ films have become almost a habbit after a successful horror film hits the big screen. A HAUNTED H...

The Odd Life of Timothy Green Review

A childless couple bury a box in their backyard, containing all their wished for an infant. Soon, a child is born, though, Timothy Green is not all that he appears.  A beautiful film with a captivating narrative not just for kids, but for the entire family. While the film is great for kids and its ideas are welcoming, the adults will be the ones to shed a tear or two during the films progression. ...

Promised Land

A salesman for a natural gas company experiences life-changing events after arriving in a small town, where his corporation wants to tap into the available resources. PROMISED LAND is a new film by Gus Van Sant (GOOD WILL HUNTING, MILK) and worth watching on a relaxed Sunday afternoon. Van Sant recognises that not every film has to be a masterpiece, however, don’t let that statement deter yo...

The Croods Review

The worlds very first prehistoric family goes on a road trip to an uncharted and fantastical world.THE CROODS is an animated adventure film fun for all ages, and I mean all ages. Taking you back to the time of the Flinstones, it tells the tales of a family (The Croods) and their cave-man Neanderthal like ways.

Broken City

The opening scene in this film grasped my attention and I found myself fully immersed in the narrative. From then on, I felt almost let down as the rest of the film didnʼt live up to its interesting and suspenseful beginning. BROKEN CITY has a powerful cast with Russell Crowe as Mayor Hostetler, Mark Wahlberg as ex-cop Billy Taggart and Catherine Zeta- Jones as the Mayors wife, Cathleen. The story...
