Despite doing little with its premise, and even less with its plot, MIB: International is a lot of fun due to the chemistry of its two leads. Review

Wild Rose is wildly entertaining, but don’t let that fool you; there is great depth to be found in this piece. Review

A sumptuous visual feast anchored in two incredible performances from relatively unknown leads, that stumbles and falters whenever a certain blue magical deity is on screen. Review

This noir-ish take on the Pokemon property might finally have broken the video game to big screen curse, by realising the in-game stories don’t matter nearly as much as characters. Review
