Independence Day Resurgence Review

Picture it. Hollywood executives discuss their next mega money maker and among the melee of buzzwords, margins, and other business bollockry is the go-to selling point for any sequel: make it bigger. Independence Day Resurgence gets the green light and kick starts a global marketing campaign that drives home the fact that more than anything else this belated sequel will be bigger than the 1996 original. But they didn’t stop there. Continue reading Independence Day Resurgence Review

Captain America: Civil War Review

The Russo brothers weigh into the superhero collateral damage debate with an endlessly enjoyable, edge-of-your-seat thrill that’s not only the biggest and best Avengers film yet, but an intriguing and complex political thriller too.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes Review

Rise and Dawn might mean the same thing, but the differences between the two films in 20th Century Fox’s successful franchise reboot couldn’t be more apparent. Where Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes sacrificed spectacle for story to offer a pleasant change from the numerous mediocre Hollywood remakes that surrounded it, its successor strikes a perfect balance between the two. It’s as much a compelling continuation of the apes genesis tale as it is a bigger, bolder and altogether more complete summer spectacle. Continue reading Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes Review
