‘X-Men’ Movie Marathon: Part I

From 2000's X-Men to this year's Logan, over the past 3-4 weeks I have completed a marathon of 20th Century Fox's most prolific superhero film franchise. TRIVIA: Logan is the only X-Men film that I have watched in the cinema. Initially, Mumsy possessed the desire to watch Days of Future Past, though she had not previously watched First Class, or properly watched the... Continue Reading →

BA (Hons) Film Studies, University of Salford

FINALLY, I have completed my degree in film. Wow, what a feeling. On my Instagram page, I published a picture of my recently-received degree certificate - a charming 2:1. I could analyse the certificate in a similar fashion to that of Pat Bateman's business card analyses, but I won't, though I possess a similar obsession to... Continue Reading →

From ReadFilm: “Obscure Movie Villains: “Wulfgar” from ‘Nighthawks'”

Released in 1981 and directed by Bruce Malmuth, Nighthawks, essentially, is a hidden gem from the days of Sylvester Stallone’s career between Rocky II and First Blood (1979-1982). Primarily set and filmed in contemporary New York, Nighthawks presents forms of terrorism, realistic action and revenge – the terrorist being Rutger Hauer’s “Wulfgar” – the third villain in this series of Obscure Movie Villains....

From ReadFilm: “Review: ‘Arrival’ (2016)”

Amy Adams – the best actress in contemporary American cinema – delivers an out-of-this-world performance in 2016’s best science-fiction movie. If a certain election result has ruined your week, then you can quickly remove the despair by watching Arrival. In 2014 on Instagram, I labeled Prisoners as “Quite possibly the best mainstream thriller within the last five years.” Prisoners‘ director, Denis Villeneuve, has... Continue Reading →

From ReadFilm: “Review: ‘Westworld’ (1973)”

Westworld; Director: Michael Crichton; UK Distributor: CIC. Country: USA. Due to the popularity of the contemporary Westworld TV series, I thought that now would be a good opportunity to expose the 1973 film, of which the series is “inspired” by. 1973’s Westworld was written and directed by Michael Crichton, the dude who later wrote the Jurassic Park novel. The story is of two... Continue Reading →

From ReadFilm: “Review: ‘Phantasm: Ravager’ (2016)”

Phantasm: Ravager; Director: David Hartman; US Distributor: Well Go USA Entertainment; Country: USA. The first Phantasm film since 1998’s Phantasm IV: Oblivion, but the first to NOT be directed by series creator, Don Coscarelli, however, he does have a writing credit. This is… Phantasm: Ravager. My recommendation: do not watch Phantasm: Ravager if you haven’t watched the preceding films.  As one would expect, the film opens... Continue Reading →
