‘Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’ movie review: Mindless summer fun

Four years after the last adventure and 19 years after its big-screen debut, the Mission: Impossible franchise returns for a fifth outing. A new Mission: Impossible movie always feels like a bit of a surprise, not least because they are released at such sporadic intervals that the franchise never seems to gain any sense of...

‘The Gallows’ horror movie review: Moments of genuine terror

The Gallows is a late entry into what feels like a dwindling found-footage sub-genre, and it’s one that does nothing new with the idea. In fact, it’s a film that falls into nearly all of the usual pit-falls that the genre can offer – but it’s not all bad. The Gallows sees an American high-school...

Reasons to contact movie review writing services

Writing reviews for movies is a great pastime. It can be a profession as well because many people look for reviews before they go to the movie theaters or download the movies from the internet. If you have no idea about how to write a movie review and also given a task of writing a...

‘Ant-Man’ movie review: Paul Rudd’s charm carries the film

The Marvel franchise has always had a lightness of touch to it, even as the films have gotten increasingly weighty and serious. But when Guardians of the Galaxy emerged as almost a straight up comedy last summer, that largely unknown property took audiences by storm. Ant-Man is in a similar position in terms of its...

‘Ted 2’ movie review: Ticks all the right boxes for fans

Ted 2 is a film that holds absolutely no surprises. Whoever you are, it’s exactly the film that you think it’s going to be. Trailer had you in stitches? You’ll be in heaven with Ted 2. It’s as funny as you think. Did you hear the announcement that 2012’s first film was getting a sequel...

‘Terminator Genisys’ review (contains spoilers): A confused lump of a movie

The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day are two of cinema’s seminal blockbusters. The two further sequels were of a lesser calibre; serviceable, throwaway action/sci-fi films, but the first two genuinely changed cinema, creating iconic characters and memorable lines, and boasting revolutionary action sequences and game-changing special effects. Over thirty years after the original film,...

‘Spy’ movie review

Following the huge success of 2011’s Bridesmaids and 2013’s The Heat, Melissa McCarthy and director Paul Feig have become the most reliable director/actor duo since Tim Burton and Johnny Depp’s heyday. And whilst McCarthy’s recent films (Tammy) have seen her tread familiar ground, Spy is a departure in style and one heck of a risk....

‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ movie review (contains spoilers)

Marvel’s ambitious shared cinematic universe is now officially the biggest film franchise of all time. Much like Avengers Assemble marked the culmination of the characters’ first individual adventures, so Age of Ultron marks the culmination of Phase II of the project (even if this summer’s Ant Man officially still part of Phase II). But while...

‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ Blu-ray review

‘There and Back Again’. So reads the alternative title of J.R.R. Tolkein’s The Hobbit. It also once served as the planned title of this third and final instalment in Peter Jackson’s sprawling film adaptation. And, while ‘The Battle of the Five Armies’ is certainly a fitting title for a film dominated by war, that original...
