Movie Reviews

Kennedi Clements tries out the new-fangled touch screen

Poltergeist

It's heeeeeeere. This remake of Spielberg's haunted house scare fest has a few jolts but it seems rather quaint in a new era of horror movies which deliver long lasting shock value

  • Britt Robertson stars as idealistic teen Casey Newton

    Film review: Tomorrowland: A World Beyond ****

    George Clooney heads the cast but Raffey Cassidy steals the show in this hugely enjoyable family adventure about a secret future world

  • Like nothing you've ever seen before

    A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

    "The first Iranian vampire spaghetti western", is how writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour describes A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. It is like nothing you've ever seen before.

  • The Barden Bellas are back - but can they become World Champions?

    Pitch Perfect 2

    Sequels can be tricky, but fans of the first Pitch Perfect are going to love this follow-up. Plus, there is enough sass, singing and hilarity to raise a smile from the most cynical.

  • "I was a cop searching for a righteous course"

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    Tom Hardy is more mumbling than Mad in this unhinged and enjoyable reboot. Read our review.

  • An enjoyably daft caper

    A Royal Night Out

    Windsor hassle.

  • There is real double act chemistry between young star Onni Tommila and Samuel L Jackson

    Big Game

    Game for a laugh.

  • Rosario Dawson and Chris Rock are both likeable in a rom com

    Top Five

    Chris Rock's charming and funny romcom rips along with real heart and spirit while making some excellent observations about racism, politics and black America.

  • Rupert Evans as the haunted fillm archivist David and Steve Oram as Inspector McNamara  in The Canal

    The Canal

    A wife is murdered and the husband is the chief suspect. But was it her new lover who killed her and dumped her body in the canal? The answer doesn't much matter in this disappointing phantasmagoric exercise.

  • Matthias Schoenaerts plays the handsome, brooding shepherd

    Far from the Madding Crowd

    Director Thomas Vinterberg's adaptation of the classic 1874 novel is pleasant to look at, but overall a tad boring.

  • A charming slacker drama

    Get Up and Go

    The fact that two Love/Hate stars lead the cast of Get Up and Go guarantees a fair ring at the box office, certainly in Ireland. Peter Coonan and Killian Scott work very well together as two vastly different personalities in this charming slacker drama.

  • Unfriended is a scream

    Unfriended

    John Byrne enjoys a spooky tale of six teenagers who get more than they bargained for while chatting amongst themselves online.

  • Finny and Leah - the two that were left behind

    Two by Two

    A mildly amusing story about the two that got left behind.

  • Will have geek boys and girls gurning all the way to the IMAX

    Avengers: Age of Ultron

    More camp drollery and action from the Marvel stable as the gang take on another new threat of global annihilation.

  • Russell Brand

    The Emperor's New Clothes

    Russell Brand puts the boot in on the greedy in this documentary about the increasing disparity between the obscenely rich and the rest of us.
