The Front Runner

6

At times interminably slow, The Front Runner coasts on the power of its lead and the inherent draw of its story.

Poster for The Mule

The Mule

6

Somewhat slow, but tinged with bouts of tension, laughter, pity and reflection, The Mule is a moving and affecting character study that doesn’t plague itself with contrivances like tension.

The Kid Who Would Be King

8

All sorts of fun, and despite a few flaws is an exciting adaptation from one of our favourite directors.

Poster for Glass

Glass

6

Not quite as enthralling as Unbreakable, nor as surprising as Split, Glass is nevertheless a satisfying conclusion to this retrofit trilogy.

Poster for Mary Poppins Returns

Mary Poppins Returns

A worthy resurrection of an iconic character, Mary Poppins Returns is fun, charming and heartfelt.

A fun and heartfelt new take on the Transformers franchise, without as many explosions.

Robin Hood

A dismal mess that never hits it’s target.

Poster for Mortal Engines

Mortal Engines

6

A weak story and occasionally horrid acting doesn’t do justice to the incredible world-building of this film.

Poster for Colette

Colette

8

Surprisingly fun and affecting, Colette very much relies on a striking performance from Keira Knightley while making a statement on power, ownership and attribution.

Poster for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

10

Eschews the just for kids stigma with a radical new animation style, and a well thought out, intensely comedic and ultimately uplifting story that will leave kids and adults alike cheering.

Poster for Second Act

Second Act

6

Rambunctious and fun, if unambitious and predictable, Second Act is a pleasant surprise.

Poster for Creed II

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.

Poster for Widows

Widows

10

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

4

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

Poster for Bad Times at the El Royale

Bad Times at the El Royale

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

A Star Is Born

Powerful, dramatic and endlessly catchy, A Star Is Born will have you singing all the way home.

Poster for Night School

Night School

4

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

First Man

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