Poster for The Good Liar

The Good Liar


Ultimately the direction and writing squander any chance of telling the potentially gripping narrative of ‘The Good Liar’ in a clear and coherent manner. The cast try their best to make the most of this muddled screenplay but even their solid performances can’t save the film from collapsing under the weight of it’s own poorly constructed conclusion.

Poster for Sorry We Missed You

Sorry We Missed You


Sorry We Missed You is powerful British filmmaking at its best and essential viewing for everyone. The core cast deliver a quad of excellent performances bringing to life Laverty’s screenplay in an especially emotive way.

Doctor Sleep


Ultimately Doctor Sleep is a very clever film in that it will appeal to both fans and critics of its predecessor.

Fans will not be disappointed and will relish the chance to see him perform this album to a live audience, especially considering the lack of an album tour.

Poster for The Peanut Butter Falcon

The Peanut Butter Falcon


The Peanut Butter Falcon is a fantastic debut for Schwartz and Nilson as they both demonstrate their talent and abilities as writers and directors. The main three performers are all brilliant in their respective roles and excel even further in them when they all share the screen together.

Poster for The Addams Family

The Addams Family


Ultimately The Addams Family ends up being a family reunion more bearable than most! It’s a fun and freakish frolic into the lives of these much loved characters with amusement to be found round most corners.

Poster for Abominable



Whilst the animation itself may not rival the genre leaders the use of sound, storytelling and pure emotion creates countless scenes of enchantment that will whisk audiences away to the stunning locations our characters visit.

Poster for Joker



This narrative is executed superbly and the pair have delivered one of the all time greatest origin stories to be seen on the big screen.

Poster for The Goldfinch

The Goldfinch


So although isolated scenes showcase what could have been, frustratingly the picture as a whole never reaches its full potential. What should have been an emotionally affecting drama has sadly ended up being an at times painfully dull cinematic adaptation.

Poster for Ready or Not

Ready or Not


Ready or Not takes its far-fetched premise, runs with it and never looks back, and audiences should do the same.

Poster for The Kitchen

The Kitchen


The tonal mismatch of the film is jarringly obvious from the get go and struggles to rectify itself throughout. Despite the spirited performances from the leading and supporting cast the material simply isn’t brought to the screen with enough confidence to allow their roles to shine as brightly as they should.

Poster for Ad Astra

Ad Astra


It may present some pacing issues for certain viewers but with repeat viewings these will most likely fade into the background. What remains most poignant is its wonderfully human story told in its alien environment, transporting audiences to worlds unimaginable yet speaking truths so close to home.

Poster for Extra Ordinary

Extra Ordinary


This combination of acting talent and comedic writing create a light-hearted, whimsical tone which make Extra Ordinary super fun.

Poster for A bump along the way

A bump along the way


In the grand scheme of things A Bump Along the Way is a small scale drama from a small corner of the world but it rightly showcases how very few actions can have such a huge impact on the relationships between the people we love.

Poster for It Chapter Two

It Chapter Two


It Chapter Two successfully crafts a narrative showcasing a dual portrayal of captivating characters whilst unleashing its fun-house of frights to keep audiences palms sweating and nerves shredded.

Poster for The Informer

The Informer


Despite this Stefano has still delivered a well executed entry into the genre packed full of action and characters whose fate you care about. This could well be one worth informing your friends about.

Poster for Pain and Glory

Pain and Glory


He has crafted a subtly powerful cinematic story of one man’s life & work using only select moments from his time.

Fans of science-fiction will appreciate and enjoy the story here and the level of quality that is present in the film-making elevates the whole production massively.

Poster for Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw


Ultimately the film does benefit from its spin-off status giving viewers a break from the cinematic wrecking ball of dumbness that the main series resembles, if only to resemble a slightly smaller wrecking ball itself. The narrative is simple, yet flawed and in a bizarre turn of events the finale seems to turn in to live-action Moana...

Poster for Stuber



Stuber is a harmless attempt at creating a fresh take on an old genre.

Annabelle Comes Home


Conjuring up an entertaining and equally as intense watch Dauberman will be successful in securing some screams and squirms from his audiences.

Poster for Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Godzilla: King of the Monsters


Ultimately although the film shows promise in its opening scenes it simply can’t deliver the scares, fun or emotion nessecary to make a memorable monster movie.

Poster for John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum


These sequences are hypnotising thanks to how meticulously executed they are. They often boast beautiful visuals, brutal violence or exciting creativity too, creating a true spectacle of cinematic action. It’s some of the surrounding factors that stop this entry from excelling fully, namely some misplaced humour and poor character work.
