As soon as the credits stated it was Tarantinos 8th film, there was a sense of knowing that it had to be good. I think Tarantino has found his strong […]
After just finishing the first episode of the Star Wars saga, The Phantom Menace, I do notice the step down in quality from the original trilogy of films. Unfortunately for this […]
After watching the first instalment 21 Jump Street, it was always destined for there to be a second, not-as-funny sequel. It is fair to say that 22 Jump Street followed the […]
The world famous musical, Les Miserables, seen by millions of people since it’s original premiere in 1980, was sure to get a cinematic adaptation at some point. Based on the original story […]
I’m really unsure about what I’ve just finished watching. I’ve never touched any form of drug, but the closest I’ll ever get to an experience is what I’ve just seen on screen. Johnny Depp and Benecio del Toro’s psychedelic drug fuelled journey to Las Vegas is a mish-mash fantasy of hallucinations and madness that you are never sure is real or not.

The latest comedy to come out this summer, is Vacation, a kind-of reboot of the old Vacation films starring Chevy Chase.

I always worry about seeing new comedies in the cinema, there’s always a bit of a hit or miss risk which you worry about, especially after forking out for an expensive ticket.

Robert Downey Jr. has a fantastic performance as the brilliant yet self-centred lawyer Hank Palmer, it was such a good performance that I didn’t think that Tony Stark had shaved his beard and turned up in a suit.
