Book of Love is trite and cliche, but there’s a kernel of something here that keeps you smiling and enjoying yourself. Review

Dinklage gives a nuanced performance that, despite his inability to match his co-stars in singing talent, brings pathos and warmth to this tragic romance. Review

A fun, fizzy action-adventure that disperses with an attempt at being anything other than a trashy popcorn flick. Review

Rom-coms don’t come much more ridiculous, cliched or chemistry-lacking than Marry Me; but despite all that, it’s a hard movie not to fall in love with. Review

A sumptuous return for Poirot, with a glittery cast, gorgeous set design, and a take on the classic mystery that will satisfy any classic Agatha Christie fans in the audience. Review

Better than some of Neeson’s recently laissez-faire fare, this actioner is still an unsubtle, poorly paced and ill-conceived deep state thriller. Review

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

A somewhat disappointing entry into the franchise, The King’s Man squanders a beautiful middle act to deliver a derivative ending. 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
