The story is limited in how much it can interest it’s audiences.

The Lego Batman Movie

7.0

Narrative niggles and over sentimentality aside the film is everything you could want from a Batman comedy.

It's a slight disappointment that the writing here can’t quite muster up the engagement that this story deserves.

I wouldn’t blame you if you hated this but with the right attitude you might just be able to find a little entertainment in it.

The drama is good, the cast are better than good and the characters definitely allow for an interesting chemistry.

A great example of how the power of film can expose spectacular true stories to much larger audiences.

Poster for Moonlight

Moonlight

7.5

2016, Drama

The drama is at times very enthralling but I have to conclude that this detailed character study just wasn’t for me.

2017.01.27

Poster for Sing

Sing

4.0

2016, Animation, Drama, Music, Comedy

Decides to be as tiresome and empty as the talent shows it portrays and offers a similar level of entertainment, not much.

2017.01.23

Poster for Jackie

Jackie

7.0

2016, Drama, History

For me, Natalie Portman’s performance in ‘Jackie’ is better than the film itself.

2017.01.22

Poster for Split

Split

9.0

2017, Horror, Suspense

McAvoy’s superb powerhouse of a performance is equally as entertaining as it is terrifying...

Poster for Lion

Lion

9.5

2016, Drama

Tells this story in a most entertaining and engaging way deservedly proving why it has been receiving such acclaim.

2017.01.20

Poster for The Bye Bye Man

The Bye Bye Man

5.5

2017, Horror, Suspense

With low expectations and the right attitude ‘The Bye Bye Man’ is harmless fun.

A powerful and engaging drama including the themes of loss, grief and family.

2017.01.15

8.0

2016, Drama, Comedy, Love

My personal experience aside though, there is no denying that this is a triumph on so many levels...

Poster for Live by Night

Live by Night

6.5

2016, Drama, Suspense, Crime

Whilst it is perfectly enjoyable and entertained me for it’s run time, it does little to inspire rewatches.

2017.01.12

Poster for Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures

7.5

2016, Drama, History

Quite often a real delight. The story is one that deserves to be told and I feel richer for knowing it.

2017.01.10

Poster for Silence

Silence

9.0

2016, Drama, History

The narrative is so enthralling, it easily warrants the running time present and will be the subject of much analysis for years to come.

2017.01.04

Poster for Passengers

Passengers

6.0

2016, Drama, Science fiction, Love

Tells its story just fine, the content never reaches the potential of its interesting premise but is acceptable nonetheless.

2016.12.23

Poster for Assassin's Creed

Assassin's Creed

7.0

2016, Adventure, Action, Science fiction

Has some weak characters and no real structure but it still manages to be the best video game to film adaptation I’ve seen.

2016.12.22

Poster for Collateral Beauty

Collateral Beauty

5.0

2016, Drama, Love

It’s at times painful to watch such a talented cast spew such cringe-worthy dialogue...

Poster for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

9.0

2016, Adventure, Action, Science fiction

The Star Wars prequel that this universe needed and it could well rival some of the original trilogy in places.

Why Him?

6.0

2016, Comedy

Thankfully the talented cast elevate the funny, yet not hysterical, script into something quite watchable...

The director gets his focus right and keeps things simple the film becomes a compelling watch.
