Whilst running the risk of completely losing its audiences on multiple occasions The Hunt ultimately ends up being a wild ride of woke culture gone mad, it’s shocking and stupid but wildly entertaining. Review

The Invisible Man should delight horror fans, both casual and classic alike. It’s an impressive amalgamation of the best of Whannell’s work yet with a fresh feeling amongst a crowded genre. Review

The strength in the casts’ collective performance ensures that this fascinating narrative makes for much more of a convincing effort from Eastwood, far more in line with the expectations that a project with his name attached to it should bring. Review

Admittedly the weakest of the sequel trilogy, comparatively ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ might disappoint. However, coming in third place to its two excellent predecessors doesn’t make it a bad film, it is in fact far from this. Abrams ensures that the sequel trilogy is concluded in satisfying fashion delivering high stakes, entertaining action and interesting character developments. Review

Ultimately, Motherless Brooklyn misfires on several cylinders. It opts to tell a dull and unengaging story amongst a film full of other potentially rich and interesting ones. Review

Harriet tells Tubman’s extraordinary true story with power, purpose and respect. The film honours her by educating audiences about her fight against slavery and showcasing her strength as a woman, daughter and sister. Review

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.

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. Review

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. Review

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.
