Creed II

6

Suffering from many of the struggles sequels typically do, and certainly affected by following one of the best boxing films of all time, Creed II is still a fist-pumping good time in the ring.

A breath of fresh air, Steve McQueen’s Widows is a must-see.

Poster for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

6

Visually sumptuous and costumed out the wazoo, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms shoves a slim story in a shiny new package.

Poster for The Grinch

The Grinch

2

An unnecessary remake of the beloved film, it’s not clear if this movie is absolutely detestable because of its pointlessness, or because it never really engages with the audience on an emotional level.

Poster for The Children Act

The Children Act

8

An engrossing moral dilemma and a stand out performance from Emma Thompson lift what could have been a staid British drama to new lofty heights.

Poster for An Interview with God

An Interview with God

Meandering, and never really fulfilling, An Interview With God does little with its intriguing premise.

An electrifying, constantly surprising and shockingly bloody tale anchored in solid performances from some incredible actors.

Poster for Night School

Night School

A decidedly average, standard Kevin Hart comedy that never truly fulfils the potential of it’s much hyped Hart-Haddish team up.

Damien Chazelle delivers a thought-provoking, respectful and inspiring take on man’s greatest achievement. This is much watch filmmaking.

Poster for The Happytime Murders

The Happytime Murders

6

Funnier than it had any right to be, and at times a really smart send-up of the film noir genre. screen-shot-2018-05-18-at-10-00-31-am.pn...

Poster for The Meg

The Meg

4

A wasted premise, saved only intermittently by Statham, who has to carry a lacklustre cast on his back as well as the 75-foot shark.

Poster for Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Breaks the mould and delivers a metric tonne of incredible action in a story with real heart.

Not perfect, but undoubtedly funny and surprisingly action-filled.

Poster for BlacKkKlansman

BlacKkKlansman

Incredibly powerful, raucously funny, tremendously poignant and timely, and draped in a layer of undeniable cool.

Poster for Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Isn’t going to win any awards for the quality of its filmmaking. But it is undeniably joyous and absolutely fun, and will have you singing all the way home.

Poster for Skyscraper

Skyscraper

Absolutely insane, but endlessly loveable, Skyscraper is as wholly unbelievable as it’s gigantic centrepiece tower.

An abomination of a film.

Poster for Sicario: Day of the Soldado

Sicario: Day of the Soldado

8

It might not be as good as Sicario, but it’s still a tense, adult drama that we want to see more of on screen.

Poster for Incredibles 2

Incredibles 2

14 years on, and just as raucously funny and effortlessly entertaining.

Consistently funny and ridiculous, if borderline stereotypical, Ideal Home is an entertaining watch.

Poster for Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story

8

The film strikes a perfect balance, drawing on all the aspects we’ve come to know of Han Solo, and answering some niggling questions without shoving it down the throat of its audience.

Poster for Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2

10

Raucous, irreverent, bloody and undeniably joyful in it’s contrarian nature, Deadpool 2 delights in tearing down the genre norms and is all the better for it.
