Poster for 47 Meters Down

47 Meters Down

6.0

2017, Adventure, Drama, Horror, Suspense

A solid if unremarkable horror experience that has some interesting visual touches and builds suspense effectively...

A really compelling viewing experience with likeable characters, believable relationships and a charming sense of humour.

Poster for Dunkirk

Dunkirk

6.0

2017, Drama, Action, History, Suspense, War

A technically impressive film that makes good use of sound design and visual language to communicate the scope of the situation.

Poster for War for the Planet of the Apes

War for the Planet of the Apes

8.0

2017, Drama, Science fiction, War

He emotional beats land almost without exception, the characterisation of Caesar is really impressive and Bad Ape offers some well placed comic relief...

Poster for Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man: Homecoming

8.0

2017, Adventure, Drama, Action, Comedy, Science fiction

Tom Holland nails the part, the supporting cast are great, the villain is one of the better MCU antagonists...

2017.07.05

Poster for Baby Driver

Baby Driver

7.0

2017, Action, Crime

A fine film, with some nice touches of directorial flair and more than one riveting car chase.

2017.06.26

Poster for Transformers: The Last Knight

Transformers: The Last Knight

7.0

2017, Adventure, Action, Suspense, Science fiction

There are pockets of competence throughout this film in the action and visuals with other aspects being a muddled mess...

2017.06.23

Poster for Churchill

Churchill

7.5

2017, Drama, Suspense, War

An interesting film with a powerhouse performance from Brian Cox as a historically significant character.

2017.06.19

Poster for Gifted

Gifted

7.0

2017, Drama, Comedy

There are pockets of greatness in this film that are brought down by some stilted dialogue and a general lack of focus on the various plots.

2017.06.16

Poster for The Mummy

The Mummy

2.0

2017, Adventure, Fantasy, Horror, Action, Suspense

Sofia Boutella does her best at playing a villain character with unclear motivations and almost no development. Tom Cruise is equally wasted...

2017.06.09

Poster for Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman

8.5

2017, Adventure, Fantasy, Action, Science fiction, War

The film is bright and optimistic but never to the point that it can’t be taken seriously.

2017.06.01

Poster for Baywatch

Baywatch

7.5

2017, Action, Comedy

A fun and affectionate pastiche of a well loved 90’s television show.

2017.05.30

Poster for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

2.5

2017, Adventure, Fantasy, Action, Comedy

The script is a mess, and the cast is hit or miss...

2017.05.29

Poster for Colossal

Colossal

8.5

2016, Fantasy, Drama, Comedy, Science fiction

A fascinating character study that delivers a new spin on the monster movie genre.

2017.05.22

Poster for Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant

2.0

2017, Horror, Suspense, Science fiction

The characters are moronic monster fodder despite being established as highly trained and most of the dialogue amounts to explaining the plot.

2017.05.13

Poster for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

1.0

2017, Fantasy, Drama, Action

I went into the screening with very low expectations, and unfortunately even they weren’t met.

2017.05.11

Poster for Lowriders

Lowriders

7.0

2017, Drama

A solid film that wraps a fairly standard coming of age story in a subculture that I personally knew very little about.

2017.05.01

Poster for The Promise

The Promise

7.5

2016, Drama, History, Love

An effective and compelling film that explores an untapped historical event.

2017.04.30

2017, Fantasy, Drama, Comedy

A well put together story that explores the meaning of life from a Dog’s perspective.

2017.04.30

Poster for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

7.5

2017, Adventure, Action, Comedy, Science fiction

I found the humour easier to connect to and effort was made to deepen the character dynamics that worked so well in the first film.

2017.04.29

Poster for Unforgettable

Unforgettable

2.0

2017, Drama, Suspense

There are some amusing moments due to character stupidity but these are few and far between.
