suicide squad review

A little confession for you all, I don’t really like writing up movies that are bad. I don’t see my mission as a blogger/critic/ rambling person on the internet as someone who saves you from bad movies. I want to celebrate. In an ideal world, I would just like to write about the movies I love and let this whole … Read More

Star Trek Beyond Review

It’s coming up to 50th Anniversary of Star Trek and after so many years it becomes hard to define exactly what the fiction means to any one person. For many Star Trek is about exploration and deep science fiction dilemmas and yet for others, it was the joke about the nerd in the room. This was of course until JJ … Read More

Ghostbusters 2016 Reveiw

In our day and age of internet reaction and rage there hasn’t been a film judged so harshly  as that of the new Ghostbusters(2016) for quite a while. Some cried the ruined childhood mantra out loud while others went for a far more sinister misogynistic judgement. In all fairness to those holding a negative reaction the trailers that were released … Read More

The Conjuring 2 Review

There was a quiet and nervous whisper that took place during the pre-show before The Conjuring 2. It was a mix of a few things but it broadly speaking it was bravado and fear. Two opposite feelings required to enjoy this type of movie. The Conjuring when it first arrived was a bold vision of old school scares. It differentiated … Read More

The Nice Guys Review

The buddy movie has been a great staple of the comedy genre for the longest time. Yet it hasn’t always been something that necessarily inspires a lot of critical acclaim. Yet great chemistry between two leads has often been the backbone of something special when given the right material for both actors and director to work with. The Nice Guys … Read More

Captain America: Civil War Review

It was only just a month ago that we were discussing the DC comics version of Superheroes caught in a struggle against each other. The results were disappointing and mixed for a lot of us. Now it’s Marvel’s attempt in Captain American: Civil War that pits friends and Avengers against each other. The results are better in almost every way. … Read More

star wars force awakens review

I think there has been a collective anxiety around Star Wars fans for a while. Things that were once cherished seem a little less revered. A result more than likely of the film prequels which for many were a bitter disappointment, defended by some while reviled by others. When it was announced that Disney had taken over Lucasfilm and intended … Read More

‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Review

Fifyt Shades of Grey Review

Fifty Shades of Grey is a “cultural” phenomenon. In the same way that Twilight or Harry Potter or even Star Wars is but probably not for the core audience here at Entertainment Democracy. It has a far greater reach than probably most of us would suspect with over 100 million copies of the books sold. Yet it’s always been fairly … Read More

magic mike review

There are certain professions that a fella at his basest might like to do. A stripper probably has that kind of appeal. The thought of having women desire you while paying you to dance really badly has a certain charm  to it. Magic Mike will shatter that illusion. It presents a grimy,look at the world of male exotic dancing and while it … Read More

The Dark Knight Rises Review

There is a weight of expectation on some movies that they can’t be anything less than brilliant, The Dark Knight Rises is one such film. Both The Dark Knight and Batman Begins before it were truly special films. A treatment of a super hero in a realistic and grounded way. So when you see negative reviews of The Dark Knight Rises it is this very expectation … Read More
