Review: The Lego Batman Movie (2D)

Lego Batman is a riotous time, as insane and fun its 2014 originator but not quite as endearing. Batman is the hero of Gotham, he is loved and praised by all, despite him being a selfish, arrogant loner living in a huge mansion, at constant odds with his emotions. When super villain Joker sees this weakness…

Review: The Jungle Book (2D) (2016)

Jon Favreau directs Disney’s “live action” remake of the classic Jungle Book story, following closely to Disney’s own interpretation but giving it much needed character work and storyline! Told from the perspective of Bagheera the panther, Mowgli is a “man club” who grew up among the wolves. But when a vicious tiger known as Shere…

Review: The Croods

Dreamworks newest animated outing held a lot of promise in my mind, from a promising trailer showing some gorgeous landscapes, colourful creatures and good laughs. Yet while these are present, it didn’t play out as well as I’d hoped. The Croods are a prehistoric caveman family and the father, Grug (Nicolas Cage) protects them by being overly paranoid…
