Today’s review comes courtesy of the returning comedy duo Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. Their previous outing was 2010’s The Other Guys which I adored; it was a laugh a minute.
When I saw they had reunited for Daddy’s Home, I was pleased. It may have a very different premise but the pairing had me queuing for my ticket.
Adam McKay is on producing duties for Daddy’s Home, like most of Ferrell’s best work, so what could possibly go wrong?

Today’s review is a blast from the past - ish. I watched this film again a couple of nights ago and I felt like I owed it a review.
The film debuted in 2008 and I was a huge fan back then. I have probably viewed it approximately five times since then mainly because it is easy-watching and I love Ricky Gervais.
Am I just blind-sided by being a fan of the British comedian or is it genuinely a great film? Well, I have finally come to a conclusion…

Today’s review is a pretty big one. Since the seventh episode was announced way back when, Sci-Fi fans have been getting excited – well now the wait is over.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives on our screens a decade after the last blockbuster in the franchise. I went to see the new addition as a cinema lover rather than a Star Wars fanatic, so I am reviewing this objectively.
However, all things considered, I defy anyone not to get the fist-clenchingly excited when the famous John Williams music begins.
So, Star Wars is back with a new director, new cast and a new story – but is it back to the good old days too?

Today’s review is a throwback to the Venice Film Festival. I saw this animated feature for the first time back in September.
I knew very little about Anomalisa before it was screened yet there was a definite buzz around the Venice circuit. It was the last ‘big’ film to be showcased at prime time 9am in early September and many journalists hung around to catch it.
Anomalisa isn’t your usual animation and it will definitely live long in the memory of the audiences – for one reason or certainly another…
Tonight’s review is a lovely change from the recent month’s Christmassy and dramatic feel (it is Christmas and the Oscars after all!).
This evening we bring you a Hollywood comedy that comes courtesy of the delightfully funny duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
The two are on acting duties only here as Paula Pell has crafted the script for the comediennes to deliver. Any comedy movie that has this almighty pair in is surely a pleasure with their undeniable chemistry right? Well, we have the details for you…
This evening’s review is our second Christmas film review in as many weeks. This is a slightly different festive movie compared to The Night Before – mainly because there are fewer drugs.
Christmas With The Coopers (or Love The Coopers if you’re reading from America) is an all-star Christmas film ready to prepare a real-life extended family for the trials and tribulations of the festive period.
Christmas With The Coopers is one of a few seasonal films in the cinema currently and it isn’t a woeful addition to the Christmas catalogue of movies – but not necessarily as classic either…
Today’s review comes from a recently released DVD. The film is an acclaimed black comedy that was shown back in June at the Edinburgh Film Festival.
The Legend of Barney Thomson also sees the debut of leading man Robert Carlyle helming the production as a director.
The film arrives as an adaption from Douglas Lindsay’s novel ‘The Long Midnight of Barney Thomson’ and starring an incredible British trio
This is Cineroom’s first DVD review for a while, and the film isn’t overly well-known so we thought we’d bring it to your attention. Let’s get into it…
Today’s review comes courtesy from one of the most famous directors in the world along with one of the best actors of all time… Do you know what it is? Of course you do because you read the title!
Bridge of Spies debuted last week in the UK as it pushes for Oscar glory early next year. Steven Spielberg helms this Cold War epic with Tom Hanks as his leading man.
This is the fourth time Spielberg and Hanks have collaborated following a six year film relationship with Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can and The Terminal from 1998 to 2004.
Bridge of Spies is more than a worthy addition to their partnership, and here’s why…
On Friday, Cineroom’s 2015 Christmas month kicked off with a cinema visit to see our first festive film of the holiday period.
The Night Before beat Christmas movies Krampus and Christmas with the Coopers to the chosen tickets for our Friday night film.
The Night Before isn’t your usual Christmas film with ‘taboo’ subjects galore – but why not? It’s the magic of Christmas! Think The Hangover being rolled in mince pies and snowflakes, then you might be onto something this...
Today we review a potential Oscar nominated film for next year’s Academy Awards – by ‘potentially’ I mean definitely and by ‘nominated’ I mean winning.
Carol will no doubt be an Oscar winner in some capacity whether it be direction, design or acting. There are three compelling components to this film for me and each one is as enchanting as the next.
I do believe there are a couple wobbles with a few parts to this film which for me will dent its chances of the ‘Best Picture’ gong. Let me explain…
From Adam Ray Palmer, the Editor-in-Chief.
When you have spare cash for a cinema visit, we like to think our reviews make the decision of which film to see a little easier for you.
