The Secret Life of Pets (2016) Sub-Review

Illumination are alright then? Yo, this be Reuben. The Secret Life of Pets wasn't a film I was either expecting to watch nor at all bothered to watch, but what the hey, it happened. Based on the fact the film was made by Illumination, I wasn't expecting a masterpiece, because Minions are the only things…Read more The Secret Life of Pets (2016) Sub-Review

Killer Be Killed (Eponymous, 2014) Sub-Review

They Killers Be Killed, Me Hearty This be Reuben, matey. You know I said I'd do more album reviews in my Bedlam In Goliath Review, well, hopefully this is the start to more of them. I'll probably go through my music library a bit and review some of the best and worst bits of it, in…Read more Killer Be Killed (Eponymous, 2014) Sub-Review

The Nice Guys (2016) Sub-Review

Boobs, Blood N Comedy. This Thang's Got It All. I was looking forward to The Nice Guys and boy am I glad I saw it before it stopped being shown. It's glorious. It's just great watching. Comedies are usually good fun (assuming they're quality comedies and/or don't star Melissa McCarthy), but The Nice Guys carries…Read more The Nice Guys (2016) Sub-Review

What We Do In the Shadows (2015) Sub-Review

Co-written by Jermaine Clement and Taika Waititi, this is one of the better comedies I've seen; or at least the best mockumentary I've seen. What is the biggest achievement for this film, though, is probably that it isn't far off Tongan Ninja when it comes to how funny it is. It's all bloody ridiculous (in…Read more What We Do In the Shadows (2015) Sub-Review

Locke (2014) – Sub-Review

This was a very unique film. Locke is about a man driving. You take out the dialogue and that's all it is. Take a look at my favourite movies page and you'll know that I enjoy the dumber things in life, balls-out action etc. However, I am open to a range of cinema, and I…Read more Locke (2014) – Sub-Review

The Purge (2013) / The Purge: Anarchy (2014) – Sub-Reviews

Sup. I'm here for two reasons. A review and a shameless plug. Let's do the plug first (get that bit out the way, eh?) If you liked Reuben's Batman vs Superman review, though I wouldn't know why, you'll love my Batman vs Superman review. Traffic diversion successful. Now, for my bite-sized reviews. The Purge (2013)…Read more The Purge (2013) / The Purge: Anarchy (2014) – Sub-Reviews

Solomon Kane (2009) Sub-Review

I don't recall knowing what Solomon Kane was a while back. But now I do, because I watched it. It's alright. Being an idiotic teenager, I am easily pleased by the good ol' ridiculous violence and overwhelming amounts of fake blood when it comes to films -- or even games. As expected, this film is…Read more Solomon Kane (2009) Sub-Review

Submarine (2010) Sub-Review

Another film review!? Yes, indeed; this time of Richard Ayoade's Submarine. Both a comedy and an emotional rollercoaster, this film knows what its doing. Made up of a cast largely unheard of and a small budget, it isn't exactly a blockbuster. The film is helmed by Craig Roberts, as the main character Oliver Tate, a…Read more Submarine (2010) Sub-Review

At the Drive-In – Vaya (1999) Sub-Review

Following At the Drive-In's amazing announcements today, I thought I'd celebrate by listening to some of their stuff. Now I'm listening to Vaya, their post-millennial EP, so I thought I might as well give it a review. From start to finish, over this album is a veil of punk rock. Every song is punk. That's…Read more At the Drive-In – Vaya (1999) Sub-Review
