Poster for Tully



A deceptive narrative that speaks volumes about the topic, but made all the better for the masterful blending of humour and truthfulness...

The history of the church is a study of the best and worst of humanity, and this documentary is a fascinating one.

Poster for The Gateway

The Gateway


Fairly conventional but still reasonable successful, even if the ending does seem like a bit of a cop out. If you love science fiction this is worth tracking down.

Poster for A Wrinkle in Time

A Wrinkle in Time


Its ambitions well exceed its success and young audience might get a lot out of this but for an older audience it all seems a bit naive and candied.

Poster for Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit


Domhnall Gleeson still can’t put a foot wrong and Rose Byrne is always nice to see, but this is the perfect and most aggravating example of pointless adaptation.

Much more than the sum its parts and it’s always good when low budget films like this find their audience – horror fans, to the cinema!

All the Money in the World


Mostly a rather flavourless kidnapping drama with the occasional foray into much more interesting territory.

Poster for Breathe



Is it a perfectly middle-of-the-road British weepy with some great performances and a story worth telling? Yes. Did I enjoy watching it? Absolutely not.
