Breath

Beautiful but ponderous, Simon Baker’s directorial debut eschews much of the standard Winton formula and much of the guff in pursuit of something much more subtle.

A mile a minute, action packed, fanboy overloading film about retreat. Bloody brilliant.

Eels like a comedy made in 2001. Best to let this one stay in the past.

Poster for Isle of Dogs

Isle of Dogs

8

Brings his quirky, symmetrical charm to stop motion once again; and while it’s no Fantastic Mr. Fox, it’s definitely still a good boy.

Poster for Rampage

Rampage

8

Batshit insane, impossibly stupid and unbelievably entertaining, Rampage is exactly what you’re looking for in a big, dumb disaster movie.

Poster for A Wrinkle in Time

A Wrinkle in Time

It doesn’t make an ounce of sense and is messier than a china shop after the proverbial bull, but still… it’s bloody ambitious.

Poster for Ready Player One

Ready Player One

Is the 80’s on steroids. Strap yourself in for the ride, because you’re about to be absolutely Spielberged.

Poster for The Death of Stalin

The Death of Stalin

10

Consistently hilarious, adroit and intriguing, The Death of Stalin delivers on the promise of great actors, delivering great material, in a great setting.

Poster for Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit

A somewhat middling exploration of the classic tales, Peter Rabbit shines most, ironically, when it ditches it’s titular character.

Tomb Raider

Incredibly predictable, Tomb Raider only ever connects because of Alicia Vikander’s incredible talent.

Annihilation

Alex Garland’s latest sci-fi flick is a beautiful, heady and mind-boggling exploration of a truly unique concept.

Poster for Mute

Mute

A disappointing mis-mash of two tales. It’s not the fact that it’s bad, but rather that it’s almost so good, that makes it so painful to watch.

Red Sparrow

Functions adequately, but you wish they had of spent as much time on quality dialogue and plotting as they did on pushing the boundaries of violence and sexuality.

Poster for Black Panther

Black Panther

8

Utterly unique in the pantheon of the MCU, Black Panther is fresh, vibrant and well-rounded with it’s excellent cast and indelible villain.

Poster for Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed

2

Lazy, irksome and utterly, entirely vapid, the latest instalment in the Fifty Shades trilogy bathes the original in rose-coloured light.

Literally exactly what you expect from a Gerard Butler, 50-Cent two hander.

Poster for I, Tonya

I, Tonya

Frequently hilarious, and anchored by tremendous performances from Margot Robbie and Allison Janney, I, Tonya skates its way into your heart pretty quickly.

Poster for Phantom Thread

Phantom Thread

Visually stunning, stirring and compulsively watchable atmospheric masterpiece...

Poster for The Commuter

The Commuter

Lumbering and slow-moving, The Commuter isn’t here to defy your expectations. But, surprisingly, and even if just a little bit, it does.

Poster for The Post

The Post

Spielberg’s taut political news thriller is anchored by tremendous performances, kinetic camera work and an admirable level of respect for the audience.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Raw, visceral, but also darkly funny, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is a film that will stay with you for a long time after viewing.

Poster for The Shape of Water

The Shape of Water

10

Painfully beautiful, and masterfully delivered, Guillermo Del Toro’s literal fish-out-of-water love story is immersive, original and, frankly, wonderful.

Masterful filmmaking, that will interest everyone from the most casual moviegoer to the deepest film aficionado.

Pitch Perfect 3

This third instalment manages to utterly obliterate any goodwill that remained from the previous two instalments.
