Poster for Beautiful Boy

Beautiful Boy


The somewhat unsubstantial source material is held together by two weighty yet tender leading turns, and the believability of Carell and Chalamet’s fractured father-and-son bond is enough to make the story worth watching.

Poster for Stan & Ollie

Stan & Ollie


The narrative achieves a satisfying balance between humour and melancholy, paying tribute with joyful re-enactments of their stage act but also shedding light on their behind-the-scenes showbiz struggles.

Poster for The Favourite

The Favourite


It’s grandiose, it’s theatrical, it’s downright dotty, and with a towering triad of winning performances at the helm, The Favourite is a sure thing.

Mary Queen of Scots


Ronan has been victorious in proving herself again as one of the best performers of her generation.

Poster for Widows



A riveting and rampant thriller that carries heft in its subject matter, but also captures the intrigue and exhilaration of the heist genre.

Poster for Kler



It’s a directorial damning that’s delivered with deft deliberation and a darkly dry sense of humour.

Poster for First Man

First Man


Damien Chazelle directs with his usual passionate gusto and artistic flair, but the emotional elements of the story never really take off.

Poster for Venom



Has a fascinating premise and an all-star cast but falls foul to Ruben Fleischer’s directionless direction and a sub-standard script.

Poster for A Star Is Born

A Star Is Born


A charmless vanity project from Bradley Cooper that does little more than showcase the already globally established musical talent of Lady Gaga.

Poster for The Festival

The Festival


With a steady stream of embarrassing moments and spunk gags, this piece is very much in the throbbing vein that we’ve come to expect from Morris.

Poster for Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout


Boasting some of the best action scenes I’ve seen in as long as I can remember, this is a more than worthy entrant into the hugely successful series.

Poster for First Reformed

First Reformed


A thought-provoking, engaging film that will challenge and shock cinema-goers, and Ethan Hawke brilliantly immerses us into Toller’s increasingly disturbed psyche.

Poster for Dumped



Brilliantly blithe and full of fun, encapsulating the insouciant essence of a holiday in the sun.

Poster for Eaten by Lions

Eaten by Lions


The plucky brothers navigate their way through a sub-standard story, and enough charm and warmth throughout to make the road-movie an enjoyable ride.

Sánchez skilfully executes jump scares and other genre tropes, crafting genuinely frightening scenes in the eerie haunted-house setting.

Poster for Ideal Home

Ideal Home


The developing dynamic of the dysfunctional family unit carries the plot, bringing a gamut of emotion to the heartfelt story.

Poster for On Chesil Beach

On Chesil Beach


The reflective yet ropey final act leaves a sour aftertaste to what, without it, would be perfectly palatable cinema.

Poster for Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2


The once-sharp pop-culture references now feel dated and lacklustre, and the script is jam-packed full of joke rehashes or throwaways...

Poster for Walk Like a Panther

Walk Like a Panther


Is a lazy cheap shot to cinema.

Poster for Lean on Pete

Lean on Pete


Carries the sentimental signature that is becoming synonymous with the work of Andrew Haigh, but it is very much a movie of two halves.

Poster for Thoroughbreds



A riveting but exaggerated cinematic dissection of extremely flawed young minds and their capabilities.

Poster for Beast



Seductive, steamy and downright sinister, and its impact is amplified by Buckley and Flynn’s terrific performances.

Poster for Lady Bird

Lady Bird


A warm and wacky love-letter to adolescence which marks an important directorial debut for Gerwig.

A grandiose tale of toxic love that is completely bizarre in its brilliance.
