Macbeth – Review

Fassbender’s Macbeth paints bloody swathes across the raw Scottish wilderness… Blood certainly will have blood in this ferocious adaptation of Shakespeare’s play in which brooding menace often gives way to a vicious violence, regularly soaking the sky and land in deep crimson. This is a sparse adaptation which sacrifices a considerable amount of dialogue in favour of lingering shots of […]

Slow West – Review (Spoiler Free)

A true Western which feels fresh whilst staying rooted in its genre’s hallmarks… It’s a funny thing to me that so many critics are describing Slow West as being a reinvention of the western genre. It’s not. This isn’t a neo-western like the Coen’s No Country for Old Men or Amirpour’s recent vampire western A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. […]

Shame – Review (Spoiler Free)

A searing look at the modern man who has both everything and nothing… Shame is both a painfully intimate depiction about sex addiction and also a more general look at trauma, dealing with pain and modern city life. Fassbender plays a successful man who lives in a swanky and somewhat sterile condo. He lives alone, […]

Jane Got a Gun Reveals First Images

Jane Got a Gun shakes off its troubled production with a fresh batch of new images… There have seemingly been few films in recent years with such a troubled production as Jane Got a Gun. Actors like Michael Fassbender and Jude Law left the project early on, director Lynn Ramsay walked out during her first day on set and […]

Please do head on over to this site – I only discovered it relatively recently and am already a big fan! You think that by now we would be […]

Which actor plays the best James Bond?

So I’m starting out this Bond week with the big one, the article that just has to be written when talking about 007, and the one that every fan inevitably has strong opinions about; who makes the best James Bond? This post marks the start of a week where my blog will become almost entirely […]

Prometheus – Review (Spoiler Free)

Prometheus is not one film, but two. One of these films delves into philosophical questions regarding the driving need to find our origins, whether through religion, science or both. The other is essentially an Alien film, albeit one without any of the traditional Xenomorphs (the iconic aliens from the series). Unfortunately these two films never […]
