Poster for Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel


The movie has all the best of the MCU in it and is a wonderful new hero I cannot wait to see more of in the MCU story arc.

Poster for Arctic



It is not a blockbuster, but it is a nuanced masterpiece of human survival and the world needs nothing more in their lives right now than Mads Mikkelsen going into battle with Mother Nature.

Poster for Alita: Battle Angel

Alita: Battle Angel


Visually it is a masterpiece worthy of awards but arrogance at expecting it to be one of the biggest blockbusters of the year sees the film with an ending so unsatisfying it borders on criminal.

Poster for Capernaum



One of the most difficulty haunting but also beautiful movies you will see in your lifetime.

Poster for The Hate U Give

The Hate U Give


A little too shiny and Hallmarkish but it still gives a powerful look into the state of race relations in the U.S.A.. A film that should be compulsory viewing for all school students and police officers in the States.

Poster for Ben Is Back

Ben Is Back


A fantastically decent drug-problem dramatic film. The plot is a little confused at times but the performances are one hell of a strong back bone holding it all together.

Poster for Free Solo

Free Solo


A documentary masterpiece of one inspirational and lovable real life Spider-Man.

Poster for The Mule

The Mule


A decent movie but it is far from being a great movie. I would see this one if you’re a massive Clint fan or want a slow paced rainy day movie which misses the destination but has an enjoyable journey getting there.

Poster for The Kid Who Would Be King

The Kid Who Would Be King


I was expecting very little and was thoroughly impressed by this modernised family Excalibur fantasy quest film. It had a good message, a wonderful plot and a script a thousand times better than Aquaman.

Storm Boy


Is it as good as the original? No. Is it a good film? Yes.

Poster for Pick of the Litter

Pick of the Litter


An ideal family movie for these school holidays. The movie is as cute as it is entertaining and educational, I cannot recommend it enough.

Poster for How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World


Does offer the best visuals in the series and gives the audience a more than acceptable conclusion to the heartwarming adventures of Toothless, Hiccup and the inhabitants of Berk.

Poster for Aquaman



Relying solely on a hot mangod and some epic CGI makes a quick buck but leaves a quickly faded-from-memory paint by numbers piece of trash.

Poster for Annihilation



A science fiction masterpiece. It keeps you on the edge of your seat and has some truly horrifying scenes, superb visuals and an arresting soundtrack. But best of all this movie will keep you thinking long after the credits roll.

Poster for Mary Poppins Returns

Mary Poppins Returns


The music, sets, choreography and cast are superb but Blunt is no Andrews, as marvelous as she is onscreen. Given what we have, it’s probably the best outcome for a sequel Disney could have asked for.

Poster for Ralph Breaks the Internet

Ralph Breaks the Internet


It looks marvellous and I can see Ralph Breaks the Internet making a squillion dollars for the empire, but this doesn’t make it a great film, just a bright and colourful one.

Poster for Roma



There are highs and there are lows but it is real, it is personal, and it is so heartfelt it hasn’t left me since viewing it.

Poster for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse


It pushes boundaries, re-writes animation laws and throws so much colour at you that when you don’t pass out and reach for the sunnies you truly realise its greatness.

Poster for Climax



Climax will not be for everyone, for me it is worth it for the opening dance sequence alone. The music of the film is sensational as is the cast and hellish depraved decline of the characters while off their minds on too much acid. Gaspar Noé is an exceptional artist with film as his canvas...

Poster for Creed II

Creed II


Creed II literally adds nothing new to the franchise. It rehashes the same storylines, old characters and old issues. But it does it bloody well.

Poster for Robin Hood

Robin Hood


Littered with pastiche cliche of lazy action movies and the story’s major plot holes need to see someone smacked over the head with the giant continuity cane.

Poster for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald


I thought it was eons more entertaining and with more purpose than the first film. For the first time ever I am actually interested to see where this story heads.

Poster for Suspiria



A cinephiles’ movie. It is a few edits from perfect cinema but will repulse, terrify and confuse viewers.

Poster for A Star Is Born

A Star Is Born


Worth it alone for Bradley Cooper singing, his performance and partnership with one of the most vocally talented people to walk the earth is all bonus.
