Movie Review: The Hangover III is best watched when drunk

The problem with Hangover III is there’s not enough action in the film for an action flick, and for a comedy, there’s not enough comedy. #Bradley Cooper #Hangover III #Movie review #Todd Phillip

Movie review: The Fast and the Furious goes crash, boom, bang in a good way

The climax of the film alone, featuring a bunch of cars and an aeroplane (YES!), is worth the price of your ticket. Hang around for the post-credits scene that reveals a hint about the next installment. So. Bloody. Exciting! #MovieReview #Paul Walker #The Fast and the Furious #Vin Diesel

Movie Review: The Great Gatsby is the most Bollywood of Baz Luhrmann’s films

The great American dream is an integral part of America. It’s ‘great’ in that it symbolises not truth, but hope when the truth is disillusioning; it symbolises not facts, but ideals when facts are unnerving; it symbolises not likelihood, but promise when likelihood is all but bleak. #F.

Iron Man 3 is a fun but bumpy ride, and having come after The Avengers, which is possibly the most perfect summer blockbuster film ever, you can’t help but feel slightly dissatisfied. #Gwyneth Paltrow #Iron Man 3 #Movie review #Robert Downey Jr. #The Avengers

Movie review: The Croods is fun in a family pack

It's like a mash-up of Journey to the Center of the Earth and Ice Age, and you'll love the joyride that The Croods take. Who'd have thought Nicholas Cage as a Neanderthal daddy could be so much fun? #Animation #Emma Stone #Movie review #Nicholas cage #The Croods

Movie Review: Oblivion digs a black hole for itself

Despite an impressive cast, Tom Cruise's latest attempt to squash bad guys is confused and soulless. #Movie review #Oblivion #Tom Cruise
