Reaching Distance

6.0

Drama, Suspense, Mystery

The film might not be the most profound piece of art to deal with these topics, but it’s nevertheless an impressive effort from a debut director.

Poster for The Cleaners

The Cleaners

7.0

2018, Documentary

The film’s role is evidently not to tell us who is right and who is wrong, but to open up a few doors we didn’t realise were shut.

Poster for Bad Times at the El Royale

Bad Times at the El Royale

8.0

2018, Suspense, Crime, Mystery

It may not go down as an all-time noir classic, but it will grip you for as long as it holds your attention.

Poster for Johnny English Strikes Again

Johnny English Strikes Again

6.0

2018, Adventure, Action, Comedy

Johnny English is no 007, let alone Austin Powers, but he’s possibly the wholesome family hero we didn’t realise we wanted back.

Poster for China Love

China Love

7.0

2018, Documentary

McGuires’s diverse platter of interview subjects and perspectives should nevertheless serve as a useful conversation starter for all.

2018.09.18

Poster for Hearts Beat Loud

Hearts Beat Loud

6.0

2018, Drama, Music

Music aside, the Heart Beats Loud world is full of authentic characters whose relationships and dialogue with one another are truthful.

2018.09.06

Poster for The Happytime Murders

The Happytime Murders

4.0

2018, Action, Comedy, Crime

At best, the film adds a new dimension to the tired cop genre, but fails to be much more than “Detective Film… with Puppets!”...

2018.08.23

Poster for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

5.0

2018, Adventure, Horror, Action, Science fiction

Audiences thirsty for a taste of big-screen dinosaur action will mostly find what they’re looking for in Fallen Kingdom but for diehard fans, it’s a case of diminishing returns.

2018.06.19

Poster for Ideal Home

Ideal Home

3.0

2018, Drama, Comedy

By giving us characters so unworthy of any of our emotions, the whole film feels rather pointless.

2018.06.18

Poster for The Leisure Seeker

The Leisure Seeker

7.0

2018, Drama, Love

Not just with a couple of fine acting performances but a moving love story that will pull at a diverse range of your heart strings.

2018.06.16

Poster for Hit the Road: Cambodia

Hit the Road: Cambodia

6.0

2018, Documentary

Deserves credit for the way it does not shy away from showing us that a wondrous holiday destination does not necessarily make a memorable holiday.

2018.05.02

Poster for Ready Player One

Ready Player One

7.0

2018, Adventure, Science fiction

Spielberg is a master storyteller and the quest genre is his bread and butter.

2018.03.27

Poster for The Commuter

The Commuter

5.0

2018, Drama, Action, Suspense, Crime, Mystery

It’s exactly what you think it will be, which should delight fans of the Taken franchise, while leaving everyone else rolling their eyes.

2018.01.18

Poster for Downsizing

Downsizing

4.0

2017, Drama, Comedy, Science fiction

Fundamentally a poorly-constructed film caught somewhere between satire, drama, comedy and fantasy.

2017.12.17

Poster for The Man Who Invented Christmas

The Man Who Invented Christmas

6.0

2017, Drama, History

Creative liberties aside, Nalluri’s process of interweaving Dickens’ biographical narrative with that of his novella is a well-executed storytelling device.

2017.11.28

Poster for The Mountain Between Us

The Mountain Between Us

4.0

2017, Adventure, Drama, Love

The end product is as uncomfortable and gruelling as the conditions in which Alex and Ben are subject to.

2017.10.12

Poster for Battle of the Sexes

Battle of the Sexes

6.0

2017, Drama, Comedy, History

While none of the film’s subplots are boring, they do leave the audience wandering around without sufficient direction.

2017.09.28

Poster for Patti Cake$

Patti Cake$

8.0

2017, Drama

A film about empathy and this is what makes it such an accessible and watchable film...

2017.09.11

Poster for Logan Lucky

Logan Lucky

5.0

2017, Drama, Action, Comedy, Crime

Will leave audiences underwhelmed by its lack of adventure and a screenplay unworthy of Danny Ocean.

2017.08.13

Poster for War for the Planet of the Apes

War for the Planet of the Apes

6.0

2017, Drama, Science fiction, War

Makes for a visually glorious finish, but not necessarily an intellectually satisfying one.

2017.07.27

Poster for The Beguiled

The Beguiled

8.0

2017, Drama, Western

Coppola gives us enough time with each character for us to admire the different attributes each bring to the school.

2017.07.13

Poster for Baby Driver

Baby Driver

6.0

2017, Action, Crime

Indeed, the only character who gives this film any real emotion is the soundtrack, which consistently delivers the right song at the right moment.

2017.07.11

Poster for Six Months to Salvation

Six Months to Salvation

8.0

2016, Documentary

The fact that this narrative unfolds as the film is being made not only makes the story more authentic, but less judgmental.

2017.07.08

Poster for Handsome Devil

Handsome Devil

5.0

2017, Drama

Could have been a great film too, were it brave enough to hold a mirror to itself a few more times before hitting cinemas.
