Review - Man Up


Man Up is the new British Romantic-Comedy film starring Simon Pegg and Lake Bell, directed by Ben Palmer.
The film is about Nancy (Bell) who is unlucky in love, she gets mistaken for a stranger's blind date, Jack (Pegg) and decides to play along and ends up falling for him.

My problem with romantic comedies is that the stories are always predictable, you always know whats going to happen because they all follow a similar formula, so its all about the execution, how the Director tells the story, and i'm glad to say Man Up is a good romantic comedy.

Review - San Andreas


San Andreas Movie Poster
San Andreas is a action-adventure disaster film directed by Brad Peyton and  stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Alexandra Daddario, Carla Gugino, Paul Giamatti and Ioan Gruffudd.


San Andreas follows an Los Angeles Fire Department rescue-helicopter pilot, Ray (Johnson) and his ex wife, Emma (Gugino) as they search for their daughter after a devastating earthquake hits.

This type of film really isn't for me, disaster films are my least favourite genre, i just get bored from all the CGI destruction everywhere, my brain just turns off and my eyes glaze over, but i didn't mind San Andreas, i enjoyed it actually!

Review - Tomorrowland


Tomorrowland is a 2015, American sci-fi, mystery, adventure film, directed by Brad Bird and starring George Clooney, Britt Robertson, Hugh Laurie and Raffey Cassidy. 
Tomorrowland's advertising has remained very secretive with the plot of the film and i don't want to spoil it either so i will do a simple premise for the film taken from Disney:
Bound by a shared destiny, a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor jaded by disillusionment embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory as "Tomorrowland".

Review - Mad Max: Fury Road

Mad Max: Fury Road is a Australian post-apocalyptic action film, starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult and is directed by George Miller.


This film is amazing! A true action film for the ages, and just like the trailers show, it's ALL action, it hardly slows down in its 2 hour running time, yet it also has a fun yet simple story, interesting characters and great world building.

Review - Big Game



Big Game is a action-adventure film, directed and co-written by Jamari Helander. The film stars Samuel L. Jackson, Onmi Tommila, Jim Broadbent and Ray Stevenson.

Big Game is a crazy film, when i first saw the trailer for it i was amazed it was a real film. The film is about Oskari (Tommila), a 13 year old, when you turn 13 in his family, you have to go into the forest and hunt, while The President of the United States (Jackson)  has crashed in the same forest thanks to Air Force One exploding, so a very cowardly President is defended by a 13 year old.
