Captain America: Civil War (12A) | Close-Up Film Review

If you take 2008’s Iron Man as the birth of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, then my Vision style mathematic skills would make our second comic-book versus skirmish in a matter of months the twelfth instalment in this sprawling world of spandex and glowing blue maguffins.

Sing Street (12A) | Close-Up Film Review

The Jungle Book (PG) | Close-Up Film Review

Special Correspondents (TV-MA) | Close-Up Film Review

What sounded like a heck of an offering from Ricky Gervais when it was announced way back in October of 2014 has unfortunately transpired to be a shallow effort from Gervais

Florence Foster Jenkins (PG) | Close-Up Film Review

The story of the opera singer who thought she was good but really had a terrible voice is fascinating. Add Meryl Streep as Florence Foster Jenkins, the singer in question and Hugh Grant as St Clair Bayfield, her most caring husband, and the film can’t but be a hit.

Green Room (18) | Close-Up Film Review

Let’s face it, punks and skinheads are one of those old rival contingents that will never be the best of friends. The genesis of the old rivalry goes way, way back to a time when this primal culture clash of two tribes was dusting it up on the hard cobbles of 1970s Britain.

Enemy Mine (12) | Home Ents Review

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation was first aired on our television screens back in 2000 and went on for fifteen years, concluding last year after fifteen successful seasons and creating three spin off TV shows (CSI: Miami, CSI: New York, CSI: Cyber).

Dirty Grandpa (15) | Home Ents Review

Nobody should go into a film expecting the worst: cinema is a treat to be savoured and people that take pleasure in going to a film just to tear it in bits are not getting the best out of this treat.

Sadly the biggest offenders can be found within the comedy genre .

The Last Command (U) | Home Ents Review

Josef Von Sternberg’s The Last Command is a rousing melodrama that deserves its place in every film fan’s collection. As well as being an important piece of film history – Emil Jannings won the first ever Best Actor Oscar in 1929 for his incredible performances in both this and The Way of All Flesh – the story remains as compelling as ever.

Room (15) |Home Ents Review

Adapted by the best-selling author of the book of the same name, director Lenny Abrahamson recreates the horrific, claustrophic, but bloomingly hopeful atmosphere for cinema audiences

Joy of Man’s Desiring/Bestiaire (E) | Home Ents Review

Work is boring and repetitive a lot of the time, but you need the money, right? So it’s surprising that this 70 minute film comprised of fixed shots of machines and small-scale industrial workspaces is so utterly gripping.

Heroes: Reborn (15) | Home Ents Review

Essentially, this is a ‘next generation’ exploration of the consequences of Claire Bennet throwing herself of that ferris-wheel and blowing the secret world of supernatural humanity. To be honest, the first few episodes are pretty annoying but it delivers eventually.
