Poster for Mortal Engines

Mortal Engines


It’s a long way from being the worse film I’ve seen this year by a long stroke – it kept me interested and amused in equal measure for the running time.

Stan & Ollie


It’s one of those pleasant and untaxing cinema experiences that older audiences in particular will really enjoy. However, the film’s far from perfect in my view...

Beautiful Boy


Above all, it is the acting performances that make this film, and the four key cast members all turn in memorable turns.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald


Special effects alone do not a great film make. If you analyse the film overall, virtually NOTHING of importance actually happens...

Poster for Green Book

Green Book


Above all, it’s a film with genuine heart. A story that lifts the spirit and paints onto the screen in technicolour glory the struggle (albeit you feel a rather sanitised one) that lifted America out of the dark ages in terms of equality.

The Girl in the Spider's Web


So, the movie has its moments and is great to look at. But the film ends up a sandwich or two short of a smorgasbord, thanks largely to some totally bonkers plot points and more than a few ridiculous coincidences.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms


I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this one much, but I did. Prinicipally because it is such a visual feast and worth going to see just for that alone.

They Shall Not Grow Old


The results are outstanding.

Poster for Widows



I loved this as an intelligent action movie that’s a cut above the rest.

Poster for Slaughterhouse Rulez

Slaughterhouse Rulez


There is no nuance or subtlety to either the writing or the direction. I think that’s a great shame. The film has a good premise hidden in there.

Poster for Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody


This is a film that grabs you and propels you through the story at a fast lick. It’s a surprisingly moving story, with a well-known and tragic finale.

Poster for Halloween



Although having a wonderfully retro feel and despite mining every horror cliché known to man it’s all obviously been done with loving care by the director David Gordon Green.

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.

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…

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….

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.
