Poster for Johnny English Strikes Again

Johnny English Strikes Again


It’s a watchable TV film for a rainy afternoon, but not worth heading out to the cinema to watch.

Poster for Bad Times at the El Royale

Bad Times at the El Royale


It’s an entertaining delight, full of twists, turns, deliciously wordy dialogue and a satisfyingly open ending.

First Man


Even with these inherent spoilers, Chazelle still manages to evoke armrest-squeezing tension into the space flight sequences.

I saw this alone: and we were quite entertained.

Poster for The Hate U Give

The Hate U Give


It’s undoubtedly a mixed bag, but I came down in the end on the side of it being good rather than bad…

Poster for A Star Is Born

A Star Is Born


Here’s a film about the music industry that did nothing for me I’m afraid.

Poster for A Simple Favor

A Simple Favor


Was I entertained? Yes I was, so I am tempted to recommend you seeing this rather than not. But I was also irritated in equal measure….

Poster for The Meg

The Meg


A curiously bloodless concoction, presumably to guarantee it’s 12A certificate.

Poster for The Happytime Murders

The Happytime Murders


Definitely NOT recommended. If someone asks you to go to the cinema with them to see this, tell them to get stuffed!

Poster for King of Thieves

King of Thieves


A sweary but stylishly-executed heist movie that has enough humour to thoroughly entertain this cinema-goer.

Poster for The Children Act

The Children Act


It’s a great film for showcasing acting talent, but beware: it’s not got a “lot of laffs”.

Poster for The Equalizer 2

The Equalizer 2


A cut-above the norm, Washington’s solid performance makes this an entertaining night out at the flicks.

Poster for Searching



An excellent thriller that also effectively drills into grief and bereavement.

Poster for The Darkest Minds

The Darkest Minds


A great and eye-catching performance from Amandla Stenberg, but otherwise the movie is eminently missable.

Poster for Ant-Man and the Wasp

Ant-Man and the Wasp


A perfectly entertaining watch for a summer night, but it is uneven in tone...

Poster for The Con Is On

The Con Is On


The only actor for me that showed an ounce of promise was Alice Eve...

Poster for The Mountain Between Us

The Mountain Between Us


It neither completely satisfies as a romance nor as an adventure flick but falls rather uncomfortably between the two stools.

Poster for You Were Never Really Here

You Were Never Really Here


It’s an insanely tense film and it has more than its fair share of “WTF” moments...

Poster for Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout


I was enormously entertained throughout, and this should be near the top of your summer watch list.

Poster for Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again


Drips with cheese again, but who cares when it is so stylishly done.

Poster for Ocean's Eight

Ocean's Eight


All glitz and glamour but with little substance.

Poster for Adrift



A robust and enthralling thriller-cum-romance that unusually delivers on both counts.

Poster for On Chesil Beach

On Chesil Beach


While it is not without faults it is a ball-achingly sad tale that moved me.

Poster for Book Club

Book Club


There are one or too laugh-out-loud moments but the majority of the screenplay is merely smile-worthy...
