The Best Christmas Horror Movies: Rare Exports, The Children and More

Thanks to modern advertising and social media campaigns, it feels like the Christmas season starts earlier every year. By the time December rolls around there have already been weeks of goodwill and cheer, tinsel, wrapping, sugar and sweetness artificially shoved into our eyeballs and earholes and down our throats.

19 Must-See 2016 Movies: Rogue One, Batman vs Superman, The Revenant and More

At this point we're familiar with the majority of what's forthcoming in the cinematic year – sequels, reboots and more recognised brand tie-ins. Though it's disappointing that Hollywood is increasingly more risk averse when it comes to original fare, last year's Mad Max: Fury Road showed us that it's more than possible to craft something genuinely new and thrilling within the confines of a pre-existing world.

Mad Max Fury Road Review: Fast, Furious and Surprisingly Thoughtful

There seems to be an interminable parade of blockbuster sequels and reboots these days, an imaginative drought in cinema where lazy cash-ins now preside. Fatigue sets in and it’s hard to see why exactly it’s necessary to keep going back to these worlds for more. Into this morass comes Mad Max: Fury Road, 30 years after the last Mad Max film took us "Beyond Thunderdome". Thankfully with this fourth installment, George Miller has provided a more than worthy addition to the beloved post-apocalyptic dystopian series. It’s a freewheeling film of original vision, visceral excitement, and exhilarating action, with a surprisingly sensitive core. In terms of blockbuster sequels, it’s a genuine revelation. Read More >>
