The action hits in all the right places and is incredibly well choreographed, but the plot around it is at times threadbare, and at others a rehash of what we have seen before. Review

Official Secrets brings a little known, but important, story back into the limelight, and does so in a tense and engaging way. Review

Brittany Runs A Marathon is frequently funny and affecting, but also makes too many missteps to be a must see. Part of that comes down to the pursuit of ‘realness’, while also maintaining a structure that forces typicality. Review

A raucous, rambunctious, gory and gratuitous black comedy that will have you wincing and in stitches in equal measure. Review

A funny, gory and entertaining return to the Zombieland world that never really achieves the same zeitgeist as the original. Review

An impressive adult drama with all the complex emotional questions that will linger with you after the film grounded in superb performances from Julianne Moore, Michelle Williams and Billy Crudup. Review

An incredible technical achievement masks what is, at its core, a relatively standard actioner with a lot of heart. Review

A fun, funny, engrossing female led drama that never loses sight of its central conceit around female friendship. Review

This biopic is undoubtedly limited in scope and does little to contextualize Garland’s starpower, but it does act as a compelling vehicle for an inimitable performance by Renee Zellweger. Review

A pointlessly bloody, listless rehash that barely meets runtime requirements and only does so by bloating it out with soap opera drama. Review

IT: Chapter Two upholds the quality of the original. Not without flaws, but also unlikely to have you looking at your watch, this is a fun, freaky, popcorn horror. Review

Meandering, witty, funny, violent and above all endearingly nostalgic, Once Upon A Time In … Hollywood continues a winning streak from Tarantino while also feeling vastly different from anything else in his body of work. Review

The White Crow is not only unenjoyable for the most part, but critically it is boring. For a character whose real life was so interesting, that is a real shame. Review
