Memento (2000) – Review

Leonard Shelby (Guy Pearce) is a former insurance worker who is incapable of building new memories after a violent attempt on his life, where he consequently lost his wife. While attempting to find the people responsible for this act, he must rely on his own notes and messages to remember certain things, along with his own instinct, while questioning the relationships he builds throughout. A classic throwback from the year 2000 that truly marked the start of Christopher Nolan’s legacy on cinema.

Gravity (2013) – Review

After two astronauts are forced to work together to survive an accident leaving them stranded in outer space, things quickly become more complex than they’d originally hoped. Their shuttle is destroyed, leaving them alone, spiralling quickly into the blackness. This highly rated blockbuster managed to claim a staggering seven Oscar awards along with a countless number of other wins and nominations too. A visually spectacular movie but one that didn’t quite live up to the lofty expectations some had set.

Hubie Halloween (2020) – Review

Hubie Dubois (Adam Sandler) is a man that’s mocked heavily by children and adults alike, mainly for his devotion to the Halloween holiday period, in his hometown of Salem. This year however, something is a little different and it’s up to him to save the people in his town from unexpected danger. Not the worst way to spend an evening if you’re planning on watching Netflix’s newest comedy release.

Beyond the Mat (1999) – Review

Described as a heartfelt documentary focused on the day-to-day lives of professional wrestlers, this explores a bizarre sporting world to some, but a much loved one to others. The film follows athletes such as Terry Funk, Jake Roberts, Darren Drozdov and even Mick Foley on their quest of doing what they love – traveling on the road, entertaining the fans and putting their bodies on the line. This emotional documentary dates back to 199 and is something most wrestling fans will have already seen since its release over twenty years ago. Beyond the Mat is currently streaming on Netflix.

In the 1930’s, prison guards responsible for patrolling death row at a penitentiary, come across a moral dilemma when they quickly discover that John Coffey (Michael Clarke Duncan), a new inmate and a convicted murderer, has an unexplained supernatural gift that he is slowly demonstrating while on death row.

I See You (2019) – Review

A detective and his family are terrorised by some rather strange and bizarre occurrences that seem to be unexplainable. While juggling these issues with the disappearance of a young boy in the small town they live in, things quickly become more complicated and far more sinister after the emergence of two local “phroggers”. An impressive release that has to go down as one of the best movies I’ve seen in recent months. I See You is currently streaming on Netflix.

The Platform (2019) – Review

When a man known only as Goreng (Ivan Massague) signs up to voluntarily become a prisoner of a vertical system that holds two people per cell, per floor, he quickly comes to the realisation that he has signed up for more than just six months of solitary confinement. Each cell has just two minutes per day to feast on the platform of food that they are presented with and the lower the platform goes, the less food there is. An unbelievably imaginative feature film that is currently streaming on Netflix.

Tenet (2020) – Review

John David Washington stars as a secret agent recruited by a mysterious organisation called Tenet, weaving his way through a twilight world of international crime on a mission to prevent Andrei Sator (Kenneth Branagh) starting World War 3, thus changing the course of humanity. An unbelievably hyped movie that has finally hit the big screens over the past week or two, but a complex one that definitely requires a second viewing to be fully appreciated.
