Anchored by two excellent central performances by Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie, “Mary Queen of Scots” turns out to be a compelling drama which tells of the power struggle between young, widowed royal upstart Mary (Ronan) and her cousin, the ruling monarch of the day, Elizabeth (Robbie)...

After five Transformers films from the mind of director Michael Bay, each one less interesting than the last, we finally have the live action Transformers movie that we should have gotten from the start in the form of “Bumblebee”...

Avengers: Endgame” is nearly here (no spoilers, so don’t worry!!). This, combined with the current offer on Marvel movies which are currently 2 for €15, makes this a great time to revisit the Marvel Cinematic Universe to catch up on stuff you might have missed, along with any clues that may have been dropped either purposely or by accident along the way...

The voice acting is top notch and all the cast give it their best. The soundtrack and score are both excellent and only help to make this one of the standout comic book films of the last five years, and probably one of the best animated comic book adaptations ever. It’s that good...

54 years after the original film very released to the world, Disney, who are heavily mining their own back catalogue for remakes and sequels, bring us a new vision of the iconic character. Given the passage of time, it’s only natural that Julie Andrews has passed on the role to a new actor in the form of Emily Blunt. She’s joined here by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, and Colin Firth, and the film has been put together by veteran Broadway performer and director of “Chicago”, Rob Marshall...

Nowadays, you can bring up your favourite album at the touch of a screen, but there’s something special about taking the record from its sleeve and hearing the hiss and crackle before the first bars of music start. With that in mind, and with Record Store Day looming, I decided to take a look at the five records you need to hear on vinyl...

To have an estimated net-worth of six million dollars is an accomplishment most of us could only dream of achieving, but singer/songwriter Billie Eilish has achieved this, and more, having two hit singles, “Ocean Eyes” and “Bellyache” as well as an extremely successful debut EP and debut album at the age of 17...

It's a mash up of the best parts of Flash Gordon, He Man, Aurthurian legends, Avatar, and so much more in between. It wouldn't work if the cast, which includes Willem Dafoe and Patrick Wilson, weren't fully invested in it but they all give it socks. The other major boost the film has is the charm and enthusiasm of Jason Momoa, who brings his "most likable dude in the world" presence to the big screen...

The success of this film has meant that there are whispers of another film on the way at some stage, and it would be a nice if this series were to be finished off as a trilogy. In the meantime, turn your own Wi-Fi off, fire this film in your DVD/Blu Ray player, get the family together, and have a great night in...

Set a few years removed from the original “Creed”, which saw Adonis Johnson embrace his past and start to bill himself as Adonis Creed (Michael B Jordan) in honour of his late father Apollo, “Creed II” catches up with Adonis as his career in the ring has gone from strength to strength and he has found himself at the top of the boxing world...

“Harry Potter” has become such a huge part of popular culture that as soon as you hear those first few bars of the theme music for this film, there’s a real sense of familiarity about it. It really has an ability to transport the audience into the Wizarding World, where anything can happen and usually does...

When asked what my favourite album on vinyl is, I really struggle because there are so many albums/artists/bands I love, usually ones from the 70’s or 80’s, but, if I had to narrow it down to just one single album, and just on constant content of the album, I would probably say…..Fleetwood Mac – Tango in the Night...
