    Review: The Witch

    By Fleur Clarke

    Review: The Witch I’m not scared of witches. I don’t fear what lurks in the woods. I don’t worry about the Devil leading me astray and corrupting my immortal soul. The horror films that have scared me most have been ones like It Follows and The Ring, films very much located in everyday life, as I know it. Films that have me jumping when the phone rings, or looking over my shoulder as I walk home. MORE

    Review: Jurassic World

    By Sharan Matharu

    Review: Jurassic World Jurassic World was everything I could have wanted and more. Not to say that it was perfect, but it was pretty close. When I first heard there was going to be a fourth movie in the Jurassic Park universe I thought that it couldn’t possibly get any worse, the third film well and truly killed my hopes for the movies. But I also knew that nothing could keep me from going to see this film – literally, nothing. MORE

    Review: Jupiter Ascending

    By Anne Perry

    Review: Jupiter Ascending The day after I saw Jupiter Ascending, my husband asked me whether it was good or bad. I had to think about it a bit before answering.   MORE

    INTO THE WOODS Review

    By Naomi Berwin

    INTO THE WOODS Review After months of intense anticipation, last week I saw Into the Woods – at the Impact screen at the Leicester Square Empire, no less (tip: sit at the back, and beware if you’re prone to migraines – the screen is HUGE and the whole experience is pretty intense!). I should start by saying that, yes, Into the Woods is a musical. There’s a lot of singing in it, so if you’re anti-musicals, this probably isn’t the film for you. I, however, am a massive fan, and particularly of Stephen Sondheim, which means that not only was I seriously excited about the prospect of the film adaptation, I was also wary of what they would have done with it, and ready to be very critical.

    What We Do In The Shadows Review

    By Fleur Clarke


    The premise of What We Do In The Shadows and the jokes it spawns are fairly simple: a documentary crew is invited to film the day-to-day lives of four vampire flatmates. Ranging from 8,000 years old to a sprightly 183, these vampires span the undead spectrum from Nosferatu ghoul to 18th century dandy. They’re all a bit past their sell-by-date and the mockumentary opens with a flat meeting where they squabble about whose turn it is to clean the ‘bloody dishes’. MORE

    Aladdin (1992)

    By Anne Perry

    Aladdin (1992) Following The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast, Disney looked like it could do no wrong. And Aladdin, its next animated feature, looked like solid gold. It took place in a non-European setting, it promised to feature songs by the same writing team as had turned the previous two films into musical monsters, and it starred Robin Williams – then at his peak fame.

    The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

    By Sharan Matharu

    The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1
    A quick assessment of the first and second films: they were AWESOME. Two of the best modern book to movie adaptations I have seen in a long while. I wasn’t a massive fan of the second book, so when I saw Catching Fire I was absolutely blown away by how great the movie was in comparison. I actively didn’t like the third book in the Hunger Games trilogy, it didn’t grip me the way the first book had. I was only reading to find out what happens, not because I was enjoying the reading experience – it was the story that really had me in its grasp. MORE
