    Zack Snyder's Justice League

    ★★★

    Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League is a visually stunning epic which transcends the boundaries of space, time and reality. It’s also self-indulgent and grinds on for four hours with no regard for pacing, making it overall a flawed but interesting addition to the superhero canon.

    The plot picks up after the events of BVS and the death of Superman. In the heart of the Amazons’ kingdom, a mysterious computer known as the Mother Box comes to life after centuries…

  • The Fly

    The Fly

    ★★★★★

    The Fly blends horror, romance and existential drama into something poetic and tragic. The story goes far beyond its B-movie premise while remaining a pure shot of gruesome 80s Cronenberg.

    The plot is similar to the original 1950s science fiction film, although the execution is very different. Seth Brundle is a brilliant scientist working on a teleportation device which could make all other forms of transport obsolete. After becoming involved with a journalist and her scheming boss an accident occurs…

  • Sound of Metal

    Sound of Metal

    ★★★★

    Sound of Metal is a showcase for some great acting and touching moments, although its central theme is likely to be divisive and alienating to many people.

    The plot follows Ruben, a drummer and half of heavy metal duo Blackgammon with his girlfriend Lou. One morning he wakes up to the realization that he is losing his hearing and that this is likely to destroy his musical career, which sends him spiralling towards abusing drugs. He becomes involved with a…

  • Things Heard & Seen

    Things Heard & Seen

    ★½

    Things Heard and Seen is a bland ghost story which wastes its premise with sluggish pacing and a cheesy finale.

    The plot follows a woman named Catherine’s move to an isolated farm house outside New York for the sake of her philandering husband’s career. The building proves to have a mysterious past and a bad reputation in the local neighbourhood. As time goes by difficulties arise between the couple and they have the uncomfortable suspicion that the previous inhabitants may…

  • Shaun of the Dead

    Shaun of the Dead

    ★★★★★

    Shaun of the Dead is one of the greatest modern horror comedies and an even better hangover movie than The Hangover.

    The plot subverts a rom-com set-up by giving it a Romero twist. Shaun is a slacker who is stuck in a dead-end-job and living with unemployed school friend Ed. After splitting up with his girlfriend and a night of heavy drinking he vows to turn his life around, but unfortunately a zombie outbreak happens to occur the next day…

  • Trainspotting

    Trainspotting

    ★★★★★

    After 25 years Trainspotting is still the epitome of cool. The movie is a serving of grotesque punk-rock filmaking to equal Irvine Welsh’s original book, with the added stimulant of a soundtrack for the ages.

    The plot follows the misadventures of heroin addicts Renton, Spud and Sick Boy in Leith, Scotland. They and their circle of friends, including violent brawler Begbie and conventional Tommy, become involved with scams, thefts and interpersonal dramas as they try to stay afloat in a…
