It’s decent enough that it can’t be wholeheartedly dismissed, yet it is never quite satisfying enough to reach true greatness.

One of those classic, iconic movies which begs to be watched again and again, if only to savour its memorable highlights and ponder...

8.0

2018, Adventure, Fantasy, Science fiction

Such a generously entertaining popcorn-munching rollercoaster ride that the shortcomings aren’t all that noticeable. Get ready to play!

Isle of Dogs

8.0

2018, Adventure, Animation, Drama, Comedy

It’s another piece of cinematic joyousness from a director who has always stamped his own personality on his work - and it’s a great personality.

7.0

1983, Drama, Action, Suspense, Love

A relic from the 1980s which could very easily be either loved or hated - but never accused of being boring.

7.0

1965, Western

Has a sense of pure, unadulterated fun which makes it easier to watch for an hour and a half when you are in a glum mood.
