It’s popcorn nonsense. It won’t win any major awards. But it is extremely well done. I enjoyed it a lot. Review

A wonderfully entertaining Christmas blockbuster that is just the shot in the arm (no, not that sort) that the movie business needed. Great fun, and highly recommended. Review

And it has its moments for sure. But this is not a movie that I will be in a hurry to revisit, since the accents and some of the performances are not ones that I thought worthy of the potential that the movie had. Review

Kids who’ve had the original two films foisted on them by dewy-eyed parents/grandparents of a certain age will no doubt love this one, focusing as it does on more of a teen demographic that they can relate to. And it’s perfectly watchable. But it really didn’t set my movie world on fire the way that I hoped it might. Review

It’s the acting and the cinematography that sets this apart for me. Although it had its irritations, I found this to be a beautiful and engaging watch. The story is perhaps a tad predictable. But overall this is a nicely crafted and thought-provoking film that gets a thumbs up from me. Review

Most Marvel movies I will happily rewatch when they come on the box, but this one I’m not sure I’d have the strength to sit through again. Review

I really wasn’t expecting much from this, but I was pleasantly surprised. It’s a movie that has some memorable moments. At nearly 140 minutes I felt it outstayed its welcome by about 20 minutes. But otherwise I’d recommend you give it a try. Review

Thought-provoking and a memorable movie experience. Well recommended, if you’re willing to be challenged by a film. Review

The trailer promised a lot, but the movie delivered very little for me. It just all felt to me like an affront to the memory of Diana. Review

Highly recommended, if you are content to stomach some violent (and quite disturbing) horror imagery. Review

Sometimes a little movie appears that surprises and delights you, and this was one of those for me. It’s not big and it’s not clever. But it is very nicely made, thoroughly entertained me and was – for me – way better than its source movie. Review

You’ll already judge from my balance of comments that this one just didn’t work for me. Even as a “park your brain at the door” action movie, I thought it felt lazy and lacklustre. Review

This is Ridley Scott back on top form again. I found this a gripping watch. Review

At 145 minutes though, it takes its time telling its story, and I think a tighter, shorter film would have worked better. Review

Indeed there are the occasional flashes of brilliance with certain scenes. But neither did I find it so engrossing that it’s going to trouble my top 20 for the year. Review

I thought this was a fabulous Bond film. Full of drama, action, humour and deep-seated emotion. Couldn’t be better for me, and certainly on a par with Casino Royale and Skyfall for me as my favourite Craig outings. Review

It’s a cracking little British film. It deserves a major cinema release, but I suspect this is one that you might need to hunt out at your less mainstream cinemas. But please do so – it’s well worth it. Very much recommended. Review

There’s almost a good little action film buried in here struggling to get out. Review

Director Prano Bailey-Bond co-wrote this and directs it with such verve that she is very much added to my “one to watch” list for writer-directors. Review

But then came the film itself. The result was that about two-thirds in I was really willing it to end. Review

The most unusual film I think I’ve ever reviewed on One Mann’s Movies, but very interesting. As horror goes, it’s short, sharp and horrific! Review

It’s a lovely little short film, that’s very sweet and beautifully filmed. One for hopeless romantics everywhere. Review
