Batshit insane, this two-bit disaster movie is slapped together so haphazardly as to not only be boring, seizure-inducing and garish, but indeed an insult to cinema-going audiences worldwide. Review

A distinctly Amoldovarian film, giving us a look at the legacy of Spanish fascism, while also providing an emotional and thrilling drama. Review

A beautiful movie, musing on the importance and extent of family. Much like family, though at times the film may frustrate, ultimately you feel more fully realised and whole on leaving the cinema than on entering. Review

Paul Thomas Anderson does it once again; a funny, heartfelt and emotional coming of age story that succeeds on every level. Review

House of Gucci is undeniably a good film; it’s just a little too bland, a little too safe, and a lot too long to be truly great. Review

A movie that fundamentally comes off as bland, derivative and boring; all the more cutting given the inventive, cutting and wildly strong start. Review

Don’t Look Up is a comedy that, despite general enjoyment, never really generates any belly laughs in amongst its heavy handed preaching. Review

Sing 2 loses the thread with some of its existing characters, but replaces it with a tale of heart, mourning and moving on that is really beautiful. Review
