2 minute Review – Batman vs Superman

I reviewed the Suicide Squad, which I watched in quick succession after Batman Vs Superman and I have to say that I preferred the latter. They both got tons of promo, but I would say that Suicide Squad was more anticipated, especially given the Bat-fleck aspect of BvS and the fact that many people were… Read more »

Suicide Squad review

The Psychology of The Martian

As always due to the nature of analysis, “The Psychology of the Martian” will contain book (and movie) spoilers.  I am a big reader usually, but over the last little while work has been busy and there has just been no opportunity to read anything.

Blame George Miller for the torrents – Mad Max Fury Road

So I went to see Fury Road last night with some trepidation – mainly because I have been let down by movies that people rate as “5 star!!!” and also the fact that the action movie genre has been a bit stale of late – Taken 1 was great and then there was the gradual… Read more »
