Stand by Me Review

Stand by Me Studios: Act III Productions Publisher: Columbia Productions Platforms: Cinema Release Date: Out Now Overview Stand by Me, directed by Rob Reiner, is considered a classic ‘coming-of-age’ film by many. Being somewhat of a Rob Reiner fan (I loved This is Spinal Tap and the Princess Bride), I had to go see this film. Alongside that, it also starred a (very) young Wil Wheaton so I had to g...

Gattaca Review

Gattaca Studios: Jersey Films Publisher: Columbia Pictures Platforms: Cinema Release Date: Out Now Overview I am a huge fan of writer/director Andrew Niccol.

I’d seen Gattaca a numbe...

I went undercover to bring you the skinny on what it’s like to experience one of these marathon development events.

Monster Trucks Studios: Nickelodeon Movies, Disruption Entertainment Publisher: Paramount Pictures Platforms: Cinema Release Date: 12th of January, 2017 – Tickets Available Here Overview I’ll be honest with you, the trailer for Monster Trucks was not the epitome of cinematic sizzle which I have seen.

Gremlins Review

Gremlins Studios: Amblin Entertainment Publisher: Warner Brothers Platforms: Cinema Release Date: Out Now Overview The urban legend of gremlins grew out of superstitions of WW2 air crews who attributed mechanical failures in aircraft to the malicious attentions of these tiny monsters.
