Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie

  • Currently 3/5 Stars.

Yes, it's not clever. Yes, you can see the jokes coming from a mile away. But this film is really really funny, that you don't really care. If ever there was a film that could be considered a guilty pleasure it is this. Just so stupid you have to laugh.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Top notch summer blockbusters are coming thick and fast this summer, and this is another. Even better than the 2011 film it follows, this action adventure is nicely dark throughout. The plot is excellent, the cast superb, and some of the special effects set pieces are breathtaking. All summer films should be this good.

Solid if unremarkable thriller with Alice Eve and Bryan Cranston. Just never goes beyond okay due to a weak script and questionable turns. But the cast do their best, but has to go down as wasted opportunity.

Begin Again

Really nice little film this, that is both funny and touching, without getting soppy. The cast are all great, the soundtrack fantastic and New York has never looked better. Just a great feel good movie.

Mr. Morgan's Last Love

Reviewed by vu1999uk

  • Currently 3/5 Stars.

While a little flat to begin with, about half way through the film, this picks up into a nice little drama looking at the budding relationship between an old man and a young dance instructor. As you would expect Michael Caine and Clemence Posey are great, and it never gets too syrupy. But although a good watch, you can't help feeling that there was a better film to be made here.

Transformers 4

  • Currently 3/5 Stars.

The Transformers movies (and Michael Bay himself) get a bad time from most everyone. But as usual, if you turn your brain off there is plenty to enjoy here. Stanly Tucci also is hilarious in a role he is obviously enjoying every minute of it. It is ridiculously long though at nearly three hours long, but at least it never gets dull.

Cold in July

Really good and interesting film this. Starts off as a tense unsettling thriller, that then moves in surprising directions. The cast are all great, the twists keep coming and there are some wonderful moments of black humour. Very good effort.

3 Days to Kill

  • Currently 2/5 Stars.

Hard film to review this, as I would never claim it is particularly good. The truth be told it is a mess. But what a wonderfully fun OTT mess. The tone is all over the place, but it has some really funny laugh out loud moments, and it is an entertaining watch.

22 Jump Street

Another hilarious outing from the Jump Street team. Tatum and Hill are again really good in their roles and there are plenty of laughs. Also some great jokes poking fun at the idea of sequels and cliches in the buddy cop genre. The ending over the closing credits is also hilarious and is almost the highlight of the whole film.

A Million Ways to Die in the West

Though not the disaster that it was reported as, this hit and miss comedy, while having more misses still has enough big laughs to entertain. If nothing else the cameos are all great.

Maleficent

  • Currently 2/5 Stars.

Although visually stunning and Angelina Jolie does her best, this film is just let down by being so slow moving and dull. There is just not enough going on to fill out the relativley short running time to keep the interest. But does get the second star for the aforementioned visuals and Jolie.

Godzilla

Reviewed by vu1999uk

  • Currently 4/5 Stars.

Really liked this new take on the Godzilla name. Builds everything up very nicely over the beginning and then lets loose with the carnage. Stays very dark throughout, but this does not take away from the film as it never becomes po faced or overly serious. The cast are all great, although one criticism is that some of them do not appear enough. But their mere presence elevates the non action scenes.
