You’ll already judge from my balance of comments that this one just didn’t work for me. Even as a “park your brain at the door” action movie, I thought it felt lazy and lacklustre. Review

This is Ridley Scott back on top form again. I found this a gripping watch. Review

At 145 minutes though, it takes its time telling its story, and I think a tighter, shorter film would have worked better. Review

Indeed there are the occasional flashes of brilliance with certain scenes. But neither did I find it so engrossing that it’s going to trouble my top 20 for the year. Review

I thought this was a fabulous Bond film. Full of drama, action, humour and deep-seated emotion. Couldn’t be better for me, and certainly on a par with Casino Royale and Skyfall for me as my favourite Craig outings. Review

It’s a cracking little British film. It deserves a major cinema release, but I suspect this is one that you might need to hunt out at your less mainstream cinemas. But please do so – it’s well worth it. Very much recommended. Review

There’s almost a good little action film buried in here struggling to get out. Review

Director Prano Bailey-Bond co-wrote this and directs it with such verve that she is very much added to my “one to watch” list for writer-directors. Review

But then came the film itself. The result was that about two-thirds in I was really willing it to end. Review

The most unusual film I think I’ve ever reviewed on One Mann’s Movies, but very interesting. As horror goes, it’s short, sharp and horrific! Review

It’s a lovely little short film, that’s very sweet and beautifully filmed. One for hopeless romantics everywhere. Review

It’s a tribute to the team and their TV-series director Jack Clough, in his feature debut, that they pretty much pull it off. Review

We’ve been here so many times before that it’s almost a (bloody) paint by numbers. But I have to admit that I thought this one was well done, and a cut above the norm. Review

As a true-life spy story, the movie is interesting and Cumberbatch’s performance is brilliant. But I can’t say that I was 100% grabbed by it. Review

It’s a blast that I enjoyed immensely. There is little original under the movie sun, and this is no exception. It strays significantly into Spielberg’s Ready Player One, especially towards the end of the movie. But I personally found the closest resonance was with Peter Weir’s peerless The Truman Show.

Zac Snyder’s glossy zombie flick is a valiant attempt, and it has its moments. The story neatly blends a zombie apocalypse with an Oceans heist movie. You even get some stirring Die Hard-style vault opening music! But a weak script and a flabby running time make this rather hard work to get through in one sitting. Review

I’d mentally set myself up to really hate this one. But the opposite turned out to be true. As a comedy it made me laugh like a drain at times, and although some of the violence went somewhat over the top for me, I thought it to be a fine summer popcorn blockbuster (but very much for adults).

A solid piece of movie storytelling, whether controversial or otherwise. And Recommended. Review

This is an ‘old-fashioned’ film that will appeal to an older age group, looking for style, romance and escapism. It reminded me in turns of movies like The Two Faces of January and The Age of Adeline in its mood and presentation. Review

. It’s a diverting enough movie, with fabulous views of the Dominican Republic. A “less is more” approach might have made this a classic. But unfortunately, that’s not what Shyamalan delivered here. Since what we get is a ‘Lost-lite’ with farcical elements. Review
