The Witch (2016)

A well packaged horror that is more than it seems.

There’s a feeling of paranoia in the air. Something haunts people’s thoughts and fears. Religion is at the heart of everything.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 (2015)

The Mockingjay finally spreads her wings.

Why do we lose that sparkle of happiness and pure innocence when we grow up? I guess we start to see the world for what it really is.

Spectre (2015)

Was classic Bond bought back too quickly?

Remember when you could only find touchscreen tables, self-driving cars and talking phones in films and fiction?

It feels like we’ve almost caught up with James Bond’s flashy gizmos and the high-tech gadgets (if only Q could make Aston Martins a part of everyday life too!)
