Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit Review

It’s tough to tell if hardcore fans of Jack Ryan will be delighted or disgusted when it comes to Kenneth Branagh’s reboot of Tom Clancy’s beloved spy. Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit has some decent moments or action and a solid lead in Chris Pine, but it’s far too inconsistent and formulaic to be a good film.

Star Trek Into Darkness Fan Review

Alex James is baffled as to why so many people seemed so opposed to the new direction J.J. Abrams has decided to take in his Trek films - and boy oh boy, are they ever opposed.

Star Trek Into Darkness Review

This Means War Review

This Means War refers not only to the title of director McG’s latest romantic action-comedy, but also to the exact sentiment I felt about forty minutes into the film.
