The Super Mario Bros avoids disaster, but doesn’t bring anything new to the tale in this all too familiar animated film. Review

Air is the sort of simple, wholesome content that - when done well, and it is done very well here - makes an impact. Review

John Wick: Chapter 4 is definitely more in the vein of 2 and Parabellum than it is the first, franchise making movie. But it ups those two comparators easily; delivering a fitting end to the franchise that is brutal, bloody, and OTT, while continuing to push the boundaries when it comes to action in movies. Review

You’ll want to roll the dice on this one. A rollicking good time, that - against all odds - is very funny and a lot of fun. Review

A nonsensical and deeply flawed sequel, that’s overstuffed, overlong and completely infuriating. Review

Creed III doesn’t come close to touching the heights of the original Creed, or the first two Rocky movies, but it’s a perfectly entertaining film that hits hard on occasion. Review

Missing is a thrilling, inventive and fun movie that does a lot with a relatively thin premise. Review

Cocaine Bear is deeply disjointed, but at times can be buckets of fun. Not essential viewing by any stretch of the imagination, but inoffensive fun if you stumble across it. Review

Marvel’s Phase 5 arrives with a mewling whimper; solidifying a spate of recent failures from the powerhouse studio. The question is: where did Marvel go so wrong? Review

This taut thriller eschews a lot of the more violent tropes in favor of its intriguing premise, but wraps everything in a religious gauze that feels odd and, at times, contrived. Review

Spoiler Alert is one of the most beautiful, heartbreaking romances you will ever see, and is a must see for anyone interested in having a real experience in the cinema. Review

True Spirit nails the ‘true’, but lacks the ‘spirit’ to make its viewing anything other than inoffensive time passing. Review

The Fabelmans is perfectly fine, and there are some nice moments. But for the most part, this is a middling family drama piece that does little to stand apart from a crowded field. The Oscar buzz is baffling, and frankly wouldn’t exist without the director’s name attached to the piece. Review

Guy Ritchie delivers a blast of a time in the theater, in this not very good, but super fun, action heist. Review

A serviceably delivered performance as Whitney is not nearly enough to save this otherwise plodding, paint by numbers biopic. Review

Puss In Boots: The Last Wish is a gorgeously animated, action-packed, cool film with an emotional heart that will have you laughing and bawling in your seat, no matter your age. Review

Babylon is an impressive achievement - but it is so overly long, structurally unfettered, that it loses some of its impact. Review

A shambling mixed race rom-com that swerves on a strong exploration of the actual cultural issues at play, in service of a white savior romance between two leads without a drop of chemistry. Review

Avatar: The Way Of Water does like the original in pushing the boundaries of possibility when it comes to VFX, but more so it delivers an incredible about face in storytelling; creating a compelling family of characters, and a hero and villain arc that is absolutely engaging. Review
