It’s tragically bad. A lame attempt to cash in on the bizarre $155M success of the first B-movie. Avoid. Review

It has a style about it that is unmistakable. I had no idea where it was going, and the denouement was surprising and satisfying. Review

It covers her early life, pre-titles, but then skips all the intermediate biopic stuff to drill into this specific adventure in her life. And the quality of the acting and the relationships that are built up delivered something that I greatly enjoyed. Review

For me, this fell between the stools of comedy and horror and is instantly forgettable. Review

It’s billed as a comedy drama but, although there are comic moments, it leans heavily on the drama. Review

It’s just such a formulaic and contrived piece of fluff that it makes me cross that they can spend $200,000 on a movie and not make it better. Review

Like The Father, this is a tough watch. I felt pretty well emotionally wrung-out by the end of it. But, it was well worth the wait in my book. Review

The shtick is mildly diverting, occasionally downright funny, but quickly outstays its welcome. The 100 minute run time felt, for me, much longer. Review

High octane and full of noise and colour, its a spectacular that doesn’t disappoint. The quirkiness of Crazy Rich Asians is on full display in some of the sequences, which are cleverly filmed. Review

Dementia is a cruel and heartless disease that robs any affected elderly person of their memories, logic and – ultimately – their dignity. I thought the movie was extremely clever in reflecting this decline, anchored by the astonishing career-best performance from Sir Anthony Hopkins. Review

Cruella is a blisteringly funny, gloriously colourful and hugely entertaining blockbuster. Review

This an intriguing little movie that mystifies and jolts in equal measure. Review

It’s still a rollercoaster thrill-ride that – at 97 minutes – doesn’t overstay its welcome. Sometimes ‘more of the same’ is enough. Review

Aside from the couple of decent scenes, most of the shots feel like first takes, with the actors doing read-throughs of the clunky script to try to work out how to best sell the lines. Review

There’s a stellar cast involved with this one, and the subject matter in the hands of an Adam McKay could have been compelling. But as it is, it’s rather a disjointed mess. It’s worth a watch just to see the actors at work. Review

An instant classic. It knocks you round the chops and forces your respect by being like no animated feature you’ve seen before. Witty, irreverent, gloriously entertaining it’s a no-brainer that this gets 5-stars from me. Review

The script by Ben Falcone is just eye-rollingly unfunny. Review

It sits on that ‘worthy-but-dull’ list, alongside “Lincoln” and “Moonlight“: Movies that I can fully appreciate for their artistry but not for their entertainment value. Review

I really like Sci-fi films, and particularly space-based sci-fi flicks. But this was all very “meh” for me. The premise was full of potential, but failed to deliver on much of it. Review

Both of them deliver outstanding performances, and Kaluuya has already picked up the BAFTA. Kaluuya demonstrates a huge amount of energy and charisma, particularly during the delivery of his stirring speeches. But Stanfield delivers a superbly nuanced performance, and perhaps impressed me even more. Review

But one of my bellweathers for a movie is to think whether I’ll remember it in six months time. I’m afraid this one is unlikely to pass the test. Review
