You'd be forgiven for thinking that Miracle in Cell No. 7 was another tired take on The Green Mile. After all, both films feature mentally challenged individuals, near miraculous circumstances and flawed judicial procedures. While Miracle in Cell No. 7 doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel, it does stand as a solid, emotive drama in its own right.

Mama – Review

It's not necessarily the most evenly executed horror movie we've seen, but we'll say one thing about Mama: the film is aptly named. In its creepiest moments, the movie will have you screaming for your mama, crying uncle and calling on deceased ancestors to save you.

At the risk of sounding like an unwashed philistine, I've gotta admit: I've never dug ballet as an art form. I mean, Black Swan was cool, but so was Happy Feet. Tchaikovsky?

There have been many versions of the classic fairytale of Beauty And The Beast – from operas and television shows to science-fiction re-tellings. The best-known incarnation of the story, of course, bears the Disney brand and features singing teapots and dancing candlesticks. It sounds ridiculous, sure, but anyone who's watched that film will know that it packs a genuine emotional punch.

Marauders (2016) – Review

While 'Marauders' wants to be more than your average direct-to-DVD crime movie, it’s woefully lacking in thrills and its mystery is too muddled to be engaging.

Revolt (2017) – Review

Nothing but mechanical aliens, guns and lasers, “Revolt” is shot very much like a video game with impressive visual effects but mediocre plot and characterisations.
