4/5 No Score Yet Mobile Suit Gundam: F91: The Motion Picture (1991) F91 is a fun slice of Gundam, but it will leave you with a feeling of "what could have been". ‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

2/5 37% Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017) It has some good scenes in the first half, but sadly the latter half of the plot was poor, undoing what little momentum and plot it had for a re-run of the 3rd film's climax.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

5/5 No Score Yet Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack (2003) Char's Counterattack is a great film, though only if you properly care about Amuro, Char and their shared history. Otherwise it's still nice to look at!‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

2/5 29% Resident Evil: Retribution (2012) I was starting to sort of like these films, in a silly way, but this was so empty, filled with so many long scenes of characters just shooting machine guns at each other....‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

3/5 22% Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010) Don't get me wrong, the acting isn't great, the plot simple and the constant 3D effect attempts are annoying as hell, but... it was still... alright, I guess?‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

3/5 24% Resident Evil: Extinction (2007) I'm not going to shout this film from the rooftops as being great, but after Apocalypse Resident Evil: Extinction was a pleasant surprise.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

1/5 20% Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004) Resident Evil: Apocalypse is pretty awful, still... Apocalypse, so this is the last one then right? End of everything and all that... *sigh*... right?‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

3/5 36% Resident Evil (2002) Resident Evil isn't bad. It's firmly "okay", it's a cheesy survival horror story with cliché characters that knows it's a cheesy survival horror story with cliché characters.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

1/5 2% Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (1997) Mortal Kombat was the perfect level of cheesy badness, this is just... badness. It exceeded my bad memories of it, and lived up to its reputation, that's for sure!‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

3/5 47% Mortal Kombat (1995) Bad actors in lead roles, sometimes poor fight choreography and extremely dated special effects, MK isn't a good film, but it does make for a good laugh with friends!‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

3/5 11% Street Fighter (1994) It literally shreds the source material in favour of a Van Damme-centric war movie, but I can't bring myself to hate it... mostly for Bison's cheese-tastic lines...‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

2/5 13% Double Dragon (1994) Well shot and set-dressed, but otherwise full of bad dialogue, poor acting, and so very little plot or even fighting scenes. To be avoided!‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

4/5 No Score Yet Gundam NT (2019) A fun film, it solves a riddle that has been bothering fans since Unicorn became a thing, and while our lead villain was lacking, in the end I definitely had a good time.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Jun 12, 2019
2/5 23% Super Mario Bros. (1993) I don't honestly believe it deserves its reputation as one of the "worst films ever made", but I still wouldn't bother with this one...‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

5/5 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) A fantastic full stop to a 22 film series, giving us some closure to an era of cinema, but still leaving a well-lived-in Earth for new adventures to be created going forward.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

5/5 94% Arrival (2016) Arrival is one of those films I'll always remember fondly, it was still professionally made and really well told, acted and shot. A perfect sci-fi film.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2019
4/5 78% Captain Marvel (2019) A good film, some fun call-backs (especially young Nick Fury) and creates a character I'm looking forward to seeing in the next Avengers film, and that's all it needed to do!‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

2/5 82% Avatar (2009) Avatar can hold your attention due to its visuals, but you'll find your mind drifting as what you assume is going to happen happens exactly as you thought it would.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

8/10 91% Big Fish & Begonia (2018) So to sum up, Big Fish & Begonia is a visual treat that has some heart and childish imagination behind it.‐ Anime UK News

8/10 No Score Yet No Game No Life Zero (2017) While it's a shame the original cast were merely extras in a framing story, the new story they did tell was good enough that I can forgive them for it...‐ Anime UK News

5/5 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) After all this time there are now two Blade Runner films, and they're both great. What a weird world we live in!‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

5/5 89% Blade Runner (1982) I might get more attention if I blasted the film for something or other, but I just can't... because it's great!‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2019
5/5 93% Logan (2017) It's bleak but brilliant and has some great scenes and a fitting ending. If this truly stands as Hugh Jackman's last stand as Wolverine, then that's a hell of a way to go out!‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

4/5 No Score Yet Doctor Who - Planet of the Spiders (1974) Overall though, I feel the good outweighs the bad, and I do enjoy sticking this story on...‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2019
4/5 No Score Yet Doctor Who - The Green Death (1997) If you're a fan of Jo you may get a annoyed with how her exit was handled, still, lots to enjoy, including some more silly scenes for the Third Doctor, which is a rare treat.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2019
4/5 No Score Yet Doctor Who - The Claws of Axos (1971) Earth invasion, UNIT, The Master, soldiers being killed in weird ways by slow moving, vaguely humanoid creatures... It's a Third Doctor greatest hits!‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

5/5 No Score Yet Doctor Who - Spearhead From Space (1970) This is how you reboot a show and change its direction while still keeping everyone happy. It's a proper master class, and as you'd imagine, comes highly recommended by me!‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2019
4/5 No Score Yet Doctor Who - The Tomb of the Cybermen (1967) A fun story, but it falls somewhere in the middle of the scale for me. It's good, just not great. Still recommended, though.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2019
4/5 No Score Yet Doctor Who - The Tenth Planet (1966) The Tenth Planet is a good, albeit basic, Doctor Who serial, raised above averageness by virtue of being so significant.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2019
4/5 No Score Yet Doctor Who - An Unearthly Child (1963) The original episode does a great job of getting across what is a crazy plot by today's standards, let alone back in 63. The remaining three episodes are rather dull sadly.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

4/5 82% Total Recall (1990) You get the action, the cheese, and some good sci-fi and practical effects. What's not to love?‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2019
4/5 86% They Live (1988) They Live is a good laugh, I certainly enjoyed my time with it, but the sudden tonal shift and some poor acting does hurt it in the long run. ‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

3/5 71% Soylent Green (1973) It's a hard one to judge, and while I enjoyed watching it, I don't see myself watching it again...I guess an average score then, but I am glad I finally watched it.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

3/5 94% Fantastic Voyage (1966) Ignoring the painfully slow first third, the rest of the film is an enjoyable, basic sci-fi adventure. It won't wow you, but it will entertain you.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2019
4/5 98% Forbidden Planet (1956) No wonder so many sci-fi writers have cited it as an inspiration, I can see how this film would spark a lot of imagination back then, or even now. Great stuff.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2019
3/5 No Score Yet Man-Made Monster (1941) It was fun but far to generic to warrant a re-watch, and due to this, it gets a three, but I'd recommend you give it a watch if you have an hour and nothing else to do...‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2019
4/5 93% Island of Lost Souls (1933) The lead character is sadly generic as hell, but thankfully everything that goes on around him is interesting and well shot. Highly recommended.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

3/5 98% Metropolis (1927) I appreciate what it accomplished for the time and how influential it is. It's a classic, but one that maybe doesn't hold up to modern viewing...‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2019
5/5 91% Captain America: Civil War (2016) With one plothole that doesn't really derail the film, it's hard not to just applaud it for being able to juggle so much and still make it a satisfying watch. Top stuff.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2019
4/5 84% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) It still has its wacky off-beat humour, but this time the last third came with an emotional punch, and made you like them all a lot more as they grew closer.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2019
5/5 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) You root for Spider-Man / Peter Parker throughout the film, and you also get a great villain to boot, which is normally the MCU's biggest problem. I can't recommend it enough!‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2019
4/5 93% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) I was never not entertained and it's constantly funny, it's just a shame that the jokey atmosphere managed to make its way into the more dramatic and poignant scenes.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2019
5/5 97% Black Panther (2018) It's weird and brilliant to say that a Black Panther film is properly a good film, able to stand on its own and add to the overall Marvel Cinematic Universe. Top marks.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

2/5 66% Alien: Covenant (2017) Unlike Prometheus, which I found I enjoyed a lot more than the general consensus, this was as bad if not worse than its reputation. Let's just leave Alien alone for a while...‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2019
3/5 73% Prometheus (2012) Prometheus is a hard one to judge, despite what people had been telling me for years, it's actually not that bad... nor is it that great either. Average it is then!‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2019
3/5 56% Alien Resurrection (1997) It's at least more watchable than Alien3 in that it knows it's a bit crap but has a blast with it anyway! I have to admire that, even if it still won't score that highly...‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2019
2/5 42% Alien3 (1992) Dull and depressing, Alien3 has its moments, but they're few and far between. Not the worst movie ever made by any means, but also not a very exciting one to watch...‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2019
5/5 99% Aliens (1986) It's so rare to see a sequel live up and maybe surpass (depending on if you like your horror with plenty of action or not) the original, but Aliens does...‐ hoganreviews.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2019
5/5 97% Alien (1979) An real classic, that rare case of top cast, top script, top directing, top set and practice effects, everything. In terms of tense sci-fi horrors, it's hard to top Alien.‐ hoganreviews.co.uk

9/10 83% Dragon Ball Super: Broly (2019) If you even have a passing interest in the series, this is an experience that can't be missed.‐ Anime UK News
