    by Mark Costello

    Wrath of Man (Amazon) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Wrath of Man (Amazon) Movie Review
    Less a Ritchie film that happens to star Statham and more a Statham flick which happens to have been directed by Ritchie, Wrath of Man comes up short against its Heat / The Town peers but is an otherwise solid enough little crime thriller, and now on Amazon Prime!

    by Cas Harlow
    Rocky IV: Rocky vs Drago - The Ultimate Director's Cut Movie Review
    With Stallone wisely jettisoning and reframing much of the glamour and pomp from his 80s cheesefest, Rocky IV is fashioned into a considerably more weighty Rumble in the Jungle.

    Spencer Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow

    Cry Macho Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Cry Macho Movie Review
    This undeniably slight road movie is a heartfelt but melancholy affair, mostly because it might be the last starring work we get from the 91 year old legend that is Clint Eastwood. Plus win a 40-film Eastwood Box Set.

    Kill List's Neil Maskell gets a fantastic lead role to stab and torture his way through in this Get Carter-esque indie effort that's just so damn frustratingly close to being excellent.

    Last Night in Soho Movie Review
    With a full turn towards horror, Edgar Wright has crafted a modern ghost story that displays all the hallmarks of his greatness and still manages to fall short with a confused angle on sexual dynamics.

    The Sopranos go backwards in time for a completely redundant but still eminently nostalgic and perfectly watchable look at "Who made Tony Soprano?", desperately trying - and failing - to avoid the obvious answer: "Who cares?!"

    by Tom Davies
    Venom: Let There Be Carnage Movie Review
    Venom: Let There Be Carnage delivers exactly what anyone could reasonably expect, which is to say more of the same. A messy, flabby, ironically toothless affair that provides a little light superhero entertainment.
