As a standalone film, it’s adequately made although with some clunky edges and dodgy acting in places. Review

As a gothic horror, this feels like a damp squib. It’s about as scary at the recent Haunted Mansion. Review

I didn’t expect too much from this one, but I really did have a fun time in the cinema. It takes its time building mood and character, so you really care about what happens to not only McCall but the ‘family’ around him. And then Fuqua delivers its action scenes with style and brutality. Review

The film works best in its initial set-up scenes. But the laughs just ended up getting tiresome for me, resorting to schoolboy-level scatological humour that was decidedly hit and miss. Review

This is a better superhero movie than many, since it takes time to build an interesting set of characters. But, for me, it managed to lose its way during the execution... Review

And this IS a comedy. Well-written with lines that made me laugh throughout. I hope this gets the cinema distribution it deserves, since this should go down as a comedy classic. Review

Clever, intelligent and well-observed movie about a long term married relationship. Recommended if you can relate to those words. Review

This is a surprising and innovative British film that deserves your attention. It is funny and moving in equal measure and marks Charlotte Regan as a director to watch for the future. But I did find the inconsistency in the style to be irritating and frustrating. Review

I’m sure if all of the jokes landed for you it was a fire-hosing of comedy. As a movie for me, it certainly wasn’t a bust, and I would watch it again, but it felt like a good opportunity missed. Review

It’s Bond, Jane Bond. And Bond-lite at that. But I rather enjoyed this as silly and mindless entertainment. Review

This is a good old-fashioned kind of film. A biopic told in a linear and unflashy way. Review

The story is so wishy-washy and nondescript, it’s was difficult for me to get readily invested in it. Review

In the huge pantheon of ‘zombie’ films it’s difficult to create a film that genuinely stands out, but Boyle manages to do it with 28 Days Later. Review

It’s not a terrible film by any means. But it didn’t really grab me either. Review

There’s a lot to irritate you about this movie, but I’ve gone and given it three-and-a-half stars regardless. Because I really did enjoy the ride. This could have been a bit of a classic if some of the rough edges had been smoothed out. Review

This is a solid, well-made animated story that will keep the kids busy for an afternoon during the summer holidays. Review

It’s a classic film, and just SOOOOO good to see again on the big screen. Putting the rampant mysogyny to one side, its a comic treat that still delights nearly 65 years late. Review

This is a near perfect documentary, as you would expect with A24’s name on it. Review

It has a lot of positives (not least of which the stunning debut performance by Sophie Wilde). But it also has some very rough edges. Review

Grim stuff, but Nolan has produced a devestatingly brilliant overview of the controversial man’s life and work and this is a MUST SEE. Review

I normally feel a bit let down by thrillers, but this one exceeded my expectations. A well-crafted twisty-turny script that always keeps you guessing. Review
