A wonderful exploration of cross-generational attitudes to love and life...

2017.11.12

The Day After

8.0

2017 | Drama | Love

A well-performed, witty character piece, happy to operate on the low registers of the dramatic form.

2017.10.31

The Outlaws

7.0

2017 | Action | Crime

Thrilling, crowd-pleasing fare.

2017.10.31

Master

7.0

2016 | Action | Crime

Within the confines of the crowd-pleasing, glossy entertainment to which it aspires, it’s a master.

2017.10.28

The Merciless

6.0

2017 | Action | Crime

A fantastic final third to what is otherwise a slickly predictable genre thriller...

2017.10.26

Thor: Ragnarok

8.0

2017 | Adventure | Fantasy | Action | Comedy | Science fiction

Laugh-out-loud funny, and genuinely warm in a way the occasionally snide Guardians of the Galaxy can’t touch.

2017.10.19

Wrath of Silence

8.0

2017 | Suspense | Crime

Proves itself to be a remarkable movie; one defined by a unique and powerful sadness, sure to stay with you.

2017.10.15

The Breadwinner

10

2017 | Animation | Drama | War

An important, essential film.

2017.10.14

Loving Vincent

6.0

2017 | Animation | Drama

A beautiful looking movie, but I felt precious little beauty within it.

2017.10.11

Memoir of a Murderer

6.0

2017 | Suspense | Crime

A well-made thriller, too in love with its own complexity.

2017.10.08

No Stone Unturned

8.0

2017

Investigative filmmaking at its finest...

2017.10.08

Bad Genius

6.0

2017 | Drama | Comedy | Suspense | Crime

It all adds up to the most unexpectedly edge-of-your-seat comedy thriller.

2017.10.08

Jailbreak

4.0

2017 | Action

In the (admittedly rare) moments when the combat, music and its charming stupidity align, it can really sing...

2017.10.08

The Third Murder

6.0

2017 | Drama | Mystery

Where it succeeds intellectually, it fails to resonant viscerally...

2017.09.07

Brawl in Cell Block 99

8.0

2017 | Action | Suspense | Crime

A highly successful piece of grindhouse-style cinema...

2017.09.03

Suburbicon

4.0

2017 | Drama | Action | Comedy | Crime | Mystery

Strays close to meaningless parody, throwing around incendiary imagery without clear purpose.

2017.09.02

Lean on Pete

8.0

2018

Both a sensitive portrayal of childhood grief, and a surprisingly pointed attack on the societies that don’t do enough to help.

2017.09.01

The Shape of Water

9.0

2017 | Fantasy | Drama | Love

A visually sumptuous, brilliantly performed and timeless piece of cinema.

2017.09.01

Ghost in the Shell

6.0

2017 | Action | Suspense | Science fiction

Not the equal of the original at all, but it retains enough of its visual identity to elevate a generic movie into a somewhat memorable one.

2017.07.23

Power Rangers

6.0

2017 | Adventure | Action | Science fiction

Not as dreadful as it may sound: while the young cast are not the strongest, they tackle the material with earnestness and likeability.

2017.07.23

Dying Laughing

7.0

2017 | Documentary

Frequently fascinating, strangely life-affirming and – most importantly – it’s funny.

2017.06.05

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

4.0

2017 | Adventure | Fantasy | Action | Comedy

It’s difficult to talk about, simply because the movie has so little to say.

2017.05.22

The Salesman

10

2016 | Drama | Suspense

As a revenge thriller it is taut and sophisticated, as a drama it excels...

2017.03.15

Elle

10

2016 | Drama | Suspense

In its surreal combination of rape/revenge thriller, relationship comedy and feminist drama, Verhoeven has created something truly unique.
