Film review: Exodus Gods and Kings 3D (12A)

You may feel differently – and if that’s the case, you probably have a strong feeling on how this story should be depicted. Whatever you believe, director Ridley Scott’s (Gladiator) ...

Film review: Dumb and Dumber To (15)

Dumb and Dumber To (15) review from Boston’s West End Cinema I wasn’t one of the many people clamouring for a Dumb and Dumber sequel. Sure, I enjoyed the 1994 original for what it was – a ridiculously stupid, yet undeniably funny comedy that showcased the abilities of two talented actors. Some of you may have it on your list ...

Film review: The Hobbit – The Battle of the Five Armies 3D (12A)

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies 3D (12A) Over the past three years it’s safe to say that few films have matched The Hobbit trilogy in terms of offering a stellar cinematic experience. Like Avatar, Gravity and more recently Interstellar, some films were just made for the grand stage – and I class Peter Jackson’s latest Tolkien trio ...

Film review: The Pyramid (15)

The Pyramid (15) review My expectations weren’t too high ahead of catching horror flick The Pyramid at Boston’s West End Cinema – but it wasn’t quite as bad as I was expecting.

Horrible Bosses 2 review: Cast reunite for second dose of black comedy

Horrible Bosses has got to be on my list of top ten comedies of all time so when I heard there was a sequel on the way I was excited and sceptical in equal measure.
