Overall, this is a movie tour-de-force from Sorkin, and a fantastic watch. I’m kicking myself that I wasn’t able to catch it on the big screen. Review

There’s dry comedy to be had throughout On the Rocks which I found delightful. Review

The new films getting released into cinemas imply that the distributors are starting to dredge the bottom of the B-movie bucket. “Endless” is a case in point. Review

Highly watchable, it builds more in the way of creeping dread than cheap shocks. Review

It’s also difficult not to be swept along with the anarchic joy of the concoction. The movie of course leans heavily on the nostalgic catchphrases and air guitar riffs of years gone by. But there’s no shame in that. Review

As two hours of entertaining escapism, Enola Holmes worked well for me. Brown is eminently watchable, and given the Netflix response to the movie, a sequel would be – I expect – on the cards. Review

I personally found The Roads Not Taken intensely moving. I’m not sure I could say I “enjoyed” it, but it is a worthy watch and has left me with thought-provoking images to chew on. Review

But the young cast are attractive and entertained me for the (pleasantly short) running time. It’s not going to win any prizes for originality, or indeed anything else. Review

What makes the movie so compelling for me is not all of the whiz-bang practical effects, but the emotional wallop of the backstory between Cobb and his wife Mal. Review

Given this was my most anticipated movie of the year, it’s a bit of a curate’s egg for me. A mixture of being awe-struck at times and slightly disappointed at others. Review

For me, it just wasn’t engaging enough to be entertaining. It’s billed as a Comedy Drama. While there were a few good comic lines, it rarely made me do more than smile. And as for the drama, I’m afraid tears were far from being spilled. Review

Although formulaic, and at times extremely violent for a ’15’ certificate, Unhinged made a welcome and entertaining return for me to the multiplex. Review

Although it never quite lives up to its early promise at only 93 minutes it is strongly deserving of your attention. Review

A comedy needs to make me laugh, and this one really did – numerous times. Review

It’s a perfectly pleasant watch and for those (like me) of a certain age, the throwback fashions, vehicles and attitudes deliver a burst of nostalgia for the flawed but rose-coloured days of my first decade on the planet. Review

It’s chilling and an insight into the terrible ordeal that many professional women in the film industry, and other industries, have had to put up with before the “Me Too” lid was blown off. Review

It’s not a clever movie; it’s borderline bonkers for most of its running time; but it is entertaining. As a park brain at door action comedy it just about makes the grade. Review

This was disappointing, since after hearing the premise, I’d been looking forward to this one. Review

True, you may need a couple of paracetamols afterwards, but if your corneas and ear-drums can stand the pace, its not short on entertainment value. Review

If you change the name of the lead character to a fictional one and ignore the based on a true story angle, this is a genuinely uplifting and inspiring film. Review

It’s not bloody Shakespeare. But if this doesn’t make you feel uplifted and better about the world, then I will dutifully kiss the regimental goat. Review
