Bud is an excellent production across the board though, it’s been brought together by a small team behind and in front of the camera who have clear vision and have demonstrated their ability well. Review

As a movie lost far out of its own time it will fail to connect with contemporary audiences and relies solely on the nostalgic throwbacks to its franchise roots. Review

Tenet feels like it so desperately wants to be and have the same success of Inception however it ends up being nothing more than a muddled imitation and no doubt a disappointing debut for many viewers post-lockdown cinema experiences. Review

Thanks to the charismatic performances of its leading stars, the playful presentation of many of the film’s secondary characters and its light hearted comedy Dating Amber becomes a charming and heartfelt gay story that it would be hard not to get on with. Review

This informative discussion is complimented by the coverage of the competitive spelling bees but a more consistent conversation might have combined the two elements with more cohesion. Review

Coming in at under ninety minutes too The Lovebirds is a swift and undemanding watch that doesn’t feel like it’s robin you of your time, offering audiences a lark and a laugh here and there. Review

Highlighting the importance of queer spaces through history, educating members of all communities about LGBT+ struggles over the years and through tenderly, yet directly addressing queer/church relations Circus of Books delivers a powerful and insightful look at the humanity behind this adult entertainment business.

What Earth and Blood does do is by no means bad, there are numerous creative and exciting action sequences that use the main setting of the film creatively. However, its lack of more detailed storytelling makes this action thriller over simplified which in turn leads to a rather unmemorable finished product. Review

The film plays out in a tired and uninteresting fashion, one that will struggle to hold viewers attention. It’s a real a shame as this rom-com sets up and builds on its narrative and character foundations strongly but this decision knocks this cinematic construction right back down to the ground. Review

So other than the amusing titular pun, Coffee and Kareem, is as unmemorable as they come. Whilst the cast give it their all their collective performance is simply not enough to make this Netflix film worth streaming. Review

Ultimately the documentary is at its best when it puts the spotlight on the incredibly talented individuals, whose passion for their work exudes out from them with ease and it’s in these moments that One Day at Disney has the greatest power to inspire. Review

The restrained style of storytelling with leave some viewers feeling that the film is lacking but those willing to stick with this twisted tale will be satisfied with how The Occupant develops. It could be argued that this thriller lacks a little flare but it does enough to deliver an involved and entertaining home viewing experience. Review

Whilst a moral conundrum leading to a dangerous dispute isn’t a particularly original concept, when its delivered as strongly as it is here this doesn’t matter. Its unique angle thanks to the specific nature of its characters and the fantastic setting help to create an enthralling action thriller with ethical undertones that will effortlessly entertain its audience.

To some The Platform will be viewed as a simple ninety minute horror flick whilst others will tap into the social commentary and range of characters more so. The beauty of this film is that it works for either type of audience but will be enjoyed most whilst viewing it from both perspectives. Review
