Poster for Stan & Ollie

Stan & Ollie

7

Unlike the movies of its namesake, Stan & Ollie isn’t likely to stand the test of time, but while it’s here, it’s a pleasure.

Poster for The Sisters Brothers

The Sisters Brothers

10

Delightfully humourous, profoundly sad; The Sisters Brothers defies the Western genre to tell a soulful story about fraternal relationships and male ambitions.

But boredom is a transient emotion, not to be trusted, and for all its imperfections this is a movie that will stay with you long after far more ‘exciting’ thrillers have been forgotten.

Poster for The Guilty

The Guilty

10

A movie of rare precision, every second of The Guilty’s tight eighty-five minutes challenges your assumptions, raises the stakes, and leaves you struggling for breath.

Poster for Suspiria

Suspiria

8

Visually bold and brilliant, aurally chilling, and unapologetically demanding of your time and intellect.

Poster for The Front Runner

The Front Runner

6

Yet given its subject matter, and the times we live in, one expects to leave the cinema angry and indignant, rather than just pleasantly entertained.

Poster for The Old Man & the Gun

The Old Man & the Gun

8

A funny, easy-going, but ultimately fairly shallow crime comedy.

The Breaker Upperers

8

A confident introduction to a whole-new generation of Kiwi comedy talent, set to take the world by storm.

Poster for Arctic

Arctic

10

A largely quiet movie, driven by a single, understated performance.

Poster for The Happytime Murders

The Happytime Murders

2

As an R-rated, bawdy comedy, its vision is cripplingly limited, gambling so heavily on the intrinsic hilarity of puppets that the whole thing feels dramatically undercooked.

Ready Player One

6

They hope to stir something, to take you back to a time and a place where they had meant something, triggered an emotion. But nostalgia doesn’t really work like that...

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

6

Promising you nothing more than catchy tunes, smiling faces and the lightest of light entertainment.

The Post

8

While it may not be Spielberg’s most ambitious movie, it is certainly among his most relevant: Expertly crafted, urgent, and worthy of your attention.

Poster for The Day After

The Day After

A well-performed, witty character piece, happy to operate on the low registers of the dramatic form.

Thrilling, crowd-pleasing fare.

Poster for Master

Master

7

Within the confines of the crowd-pleasing, glossy entertainment to which it aspires, it’s a master.

Poster for The Merciless

The Merciless

A fantastic final third to what is otherwise a slickly predictable genre thriller...

Poster for Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok

8

Laugh-out-loud funny, and genuinely warm in a way the occasionally snide Guardians of the Galaxy can’t touch.

Poster for Wrath of Silence

Wrath of Silence

8

Proves itself to be a remarkable movie; one defined by a unique and powerful sadness, sure to stay with you.

An important, essential film.

A beautiful looking movie, but I felt precious little beauty within it.

A well-made thriller, too in love with its own complexity.

Investigative filmmaking at its finest...
