The White Crow is not only unenjoyable for the most part, but critically it is boring. For a character whose real life was so interesting, that is a real shame. Review

Stuber feels like a waste of precious feature film space. It’s funny in places, but there isn’t enough story here to make it memorable. Review

Booksmart is a must see coming of age comedy that intersperses the funny with deep insight. Review

While you might wish for something with a little more meat on the bones, Spider-Man: Far From Home is a hugely enjoyable, funny and engaging return to the MCU. Review

A bizarre space treatise on the cruelty of solitude and pointlessness, told in a way only Claire Denis could. Review

Despite doing little with its premise, and even less with its plot, MIB: International is a lot of fun due to the chemistry of its two leads. Review

Wild Rose is wildly entertaining, but don’t let that fool you; there is great depth to be found in this piece. Review

A sumptuous visual feast anchored in two incredible performances from relatively unknown leads, that stumbles and falters whenever a certain blue magical deity is on screen. Review

This noir-ish take on the Pokemon property might finally have broken the video game to big screen curse, by realising the in-game stories don’t matter nearly as much as characters. Review

Lacking the production quality of a more mainstream film The Extraordinary Journey of The Fakir nevertheless manages to capture some of the fantastical whimsy of the story. Review

The window we are given into the life of Gloria Bell is at once beautifully rendered, ambling in pace, and unrepentantly optimistic; much like the character herself. Review

A funny, heartfelt rom-com between too mismatched stars that manages, for the most part, to avoid many of the pitfalls of this genre. Review

Dumbo is a very pretty and, for non-discerning viewers like children, enjoyable film. But it is a film that takes no risks, and dulls every plot thread, emotional beat and memory of the original in its pursuit of normality, and for many that will be a disappointment. Review

Us may not be as cohesive as Get Out, but it is still an incredibly well made, terrifyingly scary and deeply meaningful piece of cinema that cements Peele as an auteur. Review
