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...

The Meg

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.

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.

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

6

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

6

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.

Incredibles 2

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

Ideal Home

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.

Poster for Breath

Breath

6

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.

Poster for Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War

10

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

Super Troopers 2

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

4

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

6

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

Poster for Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider

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

Poster for Annihilation

Annihilation

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