Poster for Greta

Greta

You might see some of the turns coming and might have been on similar routes before, but that doesn’t mean this isn’t a fun ride in excellent company.

Alita: Battle Angel

3

Another case of Cameron and Rodriguez being more interested in the technical challenges of a project rather than those other crucial aspects, like character, story or performance.

Poster for Arctic

Arctic

6

Arctic is lean, stripped back, grounded storytelling anchored by a rock-solid performance from Mikkelsen. It doesn’t take us into unknown territory, but Penna still makes the journey worthwhile.

Poster for Cold Pursuit

Cold Pursuit

7

There are missteps but with humour as dark as a Norwegian winter, knowing nods to its own absurdity, and an ability to both mock and indulge in its machismo, Cold Pursuit is more than just the standard revenge fantasy film.

Poster for First Man

First Man

8

Surprising in the intimacy of its story and its shots, surprising in its focus on the depths inside humanity rather than in space.

The Predator

5

Lower your expectations and there’s still great moments of fun to be had here, but this is like a handgun to the original’s laser cannon.

Poster for The Darkest Minds

The Darkest Minds

2

A totally forgettable piece of generic, uninspired filmmaking...

Poster for Knock

Knock

Might leave you feeling mildly content without any bad side effects. But unfortunately there aren’t exactly any benefits either.

Poster for Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout

7

A movie that gleefully accepts the cliches of its predecessors and delights in subverting them.

Poster for Nothing Like a Dame

Nothing Like a Dame

5

It’s a very unstructured, rambling affair, where conversation dictates the flow.

Poster for Isle of Dogs

Isle of Dogs

7

Truly is an exceptional piece of visual art, but it’s held back by being more for the eyes than for the heart.

Poster for See You Up There

See You Up There

7

The arthouse sensibilities mixed with commercial appeal, the visual impact, strong performances and heart make up for the slightly unusual tone and sometimes weak script...

Poster for I, Tonya

I, Tonya

7

Tonya Harding might be the focus of this story, but really, this film’s all about Margot Robbie.

Poster for Justice League

Justice League

6

Becomes the right sendoff should this be Snyder’s last DC movie.

Poster for Detroit

Detroit

6

Without context, without anything meaningful to say, it becomes nothing more than exploitative.

Poster for Three Summers

Three Summers

6

For all its flaws, Three Summers ultimately gets by on its charm.

Poster for Ingrid Goes West

Ingrid Goes West

7

Plaza carries the film, bringing a perfect mix of blankness and intensity, of weirdness, desperation, light and dark to her character.

Poster for Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

4

Beneath the energy and the flashiness, it’s just as dead behind the eyes as the first movie.

Poster for The Hitman's Bodyguard

The Hitman's Bodyguard

5

Coasts along on the chemistry of its main stars and the interesting moments are outweighed by the things you’ve seen before...

Poster for The Promise

The Promise

6

Concocts a number of beautiful, striking and haunting images, but the film doesn’t have the emotional impact that a subject of this magnitude should.

Poster for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

6

The best way to (steering straight into the metaphor) right the ship and sail off into the sunset.

Poster for John Wick: Chapter 2

John Wick: Chapter 2

7

Achieves that sequel rare trick of being just as good as the original.

2017

Poster for Get Out

Get Out

9

A stunning debut and one of the scariest films you’ll see this year.

2017.04.30

2017

Poster for Rules Don't Apply

Rules Don't Apply

3

A wasteful multi-million dollar project that never truly gets off the ground.
