Poster for Downsizing

Downsizing

4.0

2017 | Drama | Comedy | Science fiction

Fundamentally a poorly-constructed film caught somewhere between satire, drama, comedy and fantasy.

Poster for The Man Who Invented Christmas

The Man Who Invented Christmas

6.0

2017 | Drama | History

Creative liberties aside, Nalluri’s process of interweaving Dickens’ biographical narrative with that of his novella is a well-executed storytelling device.

Poster for The Mountain Between Us

The Mountain Between Us

4.0

2017 | Adventure | Drama | Love

The end product is as uncomfortable and gruelling as the conditions in which Alex and Ben are subject to.

2017.10.12

Poster for Battle of the Sexes

Battle of the Sexes

6.0

2017 | Drama | Comedy | History

While none of the film’s subplots are boring, they do leave the audience wandering around without sufficient direction.

2017.09.28

Poster for Patti Cake$

Patti Cake$

8.0

2017 | Drama

A film about empathy and this is what makes it such an accessible and watchable film...

2017.09.11

Poster for Logan Lucky

Logan Lucky

5.0

2017 | Action | Comedy | Crime

Will leave audiences underwhelmed by its lack of adventure and a screenplay unworthy of Danny Ocean.

2017.08.13

Poster for War for the Planet of the Apes

War for the Planet of the Apes

6.0

2017 | Drama | Science fiction | War

Makes for a visually glorious finish, but not necessarily an intellectually satisfying one.

2017.07.27

Poster for The Beguiled

The Beguiled

8.0

2017 | Drama | Western

Coppola gives us enough time with each character for us to admire the different attributes each bring to the school.

2017.07.13

Poster for Baby Driver

Baby Driver

6.0

2017 | Action | Crime

Indeed, the only character who gives this film any real emotion is the soundtrack, which consistently delivers the right song at the right moment.

2017.07.11

Poster for Six Months to Salvation

Six Months to Salvation

8.0

2016 | Documentary

The fact that this narrative unfolds as the film is being made not only makes the story more authentic, but less judgmental.

2017.07.08

Poster for Handsome Devil

Handsome Devil

5.0

2017 | Drama

Could have been a great film too, were it brave enough to hold a mirror to itself a few more times before hitting cinemas.

2017.05.21

Poster for Berlin Syndrome

Berlin Syndrome

7.0

2017 | Drama | Horror | Suspense | Mystery

The experiment is engrossing, and delivers the kind of experience that will keep you grounded for a few minutes after the film’s conclusion...

2017.04.17

Poster for Denial

Denial

7.0

2016 | Drama | History

Even though Lipstadt sometimes struggles to influence her own biopic-of-sorts, she is nevertheless the star of the show.

2017.04.10

Poster for Bitter Harvest

Bitter Harvest

4.0

2017 | Drama | History | Love | War

A necessary production, yet it fails to deliver the same punch as similar historic episodes re-told through film.

2017.02.22

Poster for Collateral Beauty

Collateral Beauty

4.0

2016 | Drama | Love

Just as its title tries to say too much, so too does the film try to tell too many stories and provoke a few too many tears.

2017.01.08

Poster for The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble

The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble

6.0

2016 | Music | Documentary

While the interview scenes tell us why music is important, these scenes ultimately give us the most compelling evidence.

2017.01.02

Poster for Sausage Party

Sausage Party

5.0

2016 | Adventure | Fantasy | Animation | Comedy

Peaks when it dabbles in satire.

2016.08.11

Poster for Finding Dory

Finding Dory

6.0

2016 | Adventure | Animation | Comedy

Takes advantage of its oceanic setting by introducing us to a number of quotable sidekicks.

2016.06.13

Poster for Now You See Me 2

Now You See Me 2

3.0

2016 | Adventure | Action | Comedy | Suspense | Crime | Mystery

Lets down its actors and audience with a heist film that tries to be too smart for its own good.

2016.06.03

Poster for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

5.0

2016 | Comedy

An easy, (very) low-brow comedy...

2016.05.06

Poster for Zootopia

Zootopia

8.0

2016 | Adventure | Animation | Comedy

Disney’s most sophisticated and clever animated release in years.

2016.03.15

Poster for Brooklyn

Brooklyn

6.0

2015 | Drama | Love

For all the brilliant acting and aesthetic fine-tuning though, the story behind Brooklyn is relatively dull.

2016.02.10

Poster for The Good Dinosaur

The Good Dinosaur

4.0

2015 | Adventure | Animation

If you care too much about narrative and originality, it might be worth giving this one a miss.

2015.12.15

Poster for He Named Me Malala

He Named Me Malala

7.0

2015 | Documentary

Paints Malala's story in a respectful light, both figuratively and literally; clever animated artworks of Pakistan help progress the narrative.
