90% #OutOf100 – IT Reboot is Almost Everything We Wanted. In UK Cinemas NOW

I’ve already spoken about IT by Stephen King ranking in the top 5 of my top 10 all time favourite novels. I’ve also discussed how much I frickin hate horror films. But because of my whole fan of Stephen King anomaly thing I’ve been eagerly anticipating this latest film adaptation since hearing the rumours IT was going to happen. Thanks to a preview screening at the BFI this week, I have watched IT and I’m glad to say I survived and I’m quite satisfied. (Side note, the BFI will be honouring Stephen King and his films with a dedicated Stephen King...

Josh Burton is the man behind, ‘the world’s first entirely one man made cinematically released film.’

Burton’s one-man-made independent feature length film The Dead Truth, which he wrote, produced, filmed, directed, edited, and acted in, by himself, will bring you a literal roomful of continuous drama, as well as a light touch of humour, all through a spiral of deceit and compelling storytelling.

70% #OutOf100 – ‘Everything, Everything’ Starring Amandla Stenberg Is a Sweet YA Film Not for Parents

So this film is not, I repeat NOT for parents. It’s also not for film critics, thinking critically. For Everything, Everything you need to suspend a few things. Adapted from the popular YA novel of the same name by Nicola Yoon, Everything, Everything tells the tale of Maddy (Amandla Stenberg) a smart, curious and imaginative 18-year-old who is unable to leave the protection of the hermetically-sealed environment within her house because of an illness. Olly (Nick Robinson) is the boy next door who won’t let that stop them from being together. Gazing through windows and talking only through texts, Maddy and...

80% #OutOf100 – King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (Well Done Guy Ritchie!)

I’m confused to the backlash against this film. What I watched at my preview screening was a fantastical romp comparable to revered man films, 300 and maybe a bit of Braveheart… basically all the epics which feature lots of men chest pumped, teeth bared, sword in hand, battling to death defending some legend, family crest or woman’s honour. Combined with the cockiness of Ritchies cult classic Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and the Fast and Furious films. There’s nothing outlandishly wrong with King Arthur: Legend of the Sword to the extent critics are ripping into it. Guy Ritchie has made a brilliant film. He picked well in Charlie Hunnam (Sons of...

When work knows no borders, what’s the cost? Badea’s explosive drama, is a powerful and unsettling portrait of globalisation’s far-reaching grip on our working lives.
