    Olympus Has Fallen

    β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    Olympus Has Fallen is incredibly dumb and absolutely far-fetched beyond belief, but at the same time it's an adrenaline-fuelled, action-packed thrill ride that knows exactly what it is in the best way.

    It doesn't take a genius to see the '90s action parallels within Olympus Has Fallen, and in so many ways it feels like a film displaced by time. Beyond the ludicrous concept you see multiple barrages of gunfire, backstabs and betrayal, uniquely American patriotism, drama, stakes, and an…

    Hotel Transylvania: Transformania

    I thought that it would be jarring with someone other than Adam Sandler voicing Dracula in this movie but honestly if I didn't know that he'd been recast I don't think I'd have been able to tell the difference.

    Hotel Transylvania: Transformania is a very serviceable, family-friendly animated comedy that very much feels as though it's going through the motions. Nothing about this film ever justifies why we needed to see a fourth, with Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation having…
