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.

Poster for First Man

First Man


The tense pacing, disasters and determination added with The Gosling as Neil Armstrong are all that is needed for a perfect film for me.

Poster for The Seagull

The Seagull


It was a tie for me between who stole the movie; Annette Bening or Elisabeth Moss.

The casting is impressive...

Poster for Ladies in Black

Ladies in Black


While the casting and characters are wonderful people you want to spend time with the story itself is too covered in saccharine sweetness to convey anything meaningful and long lasting.

Poster for Beast



Three performances in BEAST took my breath away. Jessie Bukley as Moll, Johnny Flynn as Pacal and Geraldine James as Moll’s mum, Hilary.

Poster for BlacKkKlansman



It is a powerful movie with a deep heart but told in a way that is easy to swallow and lined with fantastic humour.

The Meg


The Meg is a travesty, seriously rewatch Jaws again.

Poster for Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout


Laughs in the face of common place and done-before, it just throws its star out of anything moving and hopes he survives. Who doesn’t love that?!?!

Poster for Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again


A fun reunion with the old cast and a wonderful journey with the flashback cast.

Poster for Foxtrot



The director and actor do not deserve death threats, they deserve piles of awards and praise at a film that perfectly delivers a themed look into grief, tragedy, war and family.



Poster for Belle and Sebastian 3: The Last Chapter

Belle and Sebastian 3: The Last Chapter


A wonderful final movie for one of the best kid/dog duos of all time.



Poster for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom


The fifth in the franchise and the worst of the bunch, it is an insult to the original Jurassic Park...



Poster for Upgrade



Its low budget look at technology, one possible future, and AI sentience is a brilliant journey back into the genre that doesn’t avoid cliche, it integrates and embellishes them.
