Poster for The Hate U Give

The Hate U Give


A gripping and involved, relevant piece of film-making brilliantly made accessible for a large audience, and the more people who see this film the better.

Poster for Halloween



This sequel carries a remarkable continuity to the original film whilst also working expertly as a modern interpretation of the story.

Bad Times at the El Royale


Intrigue, shock, tension, disgust, sympathy and suspense are only some of the many things this refreshingly original screenplay will make you feel.

Poster for Smallfoot



So while Smallfoot won’t leave a big impression with audiences it’s perfectly enjoyable in the moment.

Poster for Malevolent



It’s got great foundations in terms of its writing, setting and performances but fails to fully build on these...

Poster for First Man

First Man


Feels like Oscar bait in its truest form with the finished product almost entirely being a failure to launch.

Poster for Venom



Problems with several aspects of the titular character, a narrative that fails to decide on or effectively juggle a mixture of tones and unconvincing performances...

A Star Is Born


A remake well worth your time and one that could and should be celebrated across the board come awards season.

Poster for The Wife

The Wife


Glenn Close delivers such a powerful performance making the unfolding drama completely captivating for the audience.

Poster for Hold the Dark

Hold the Dark


Brings an energetic story into a snowy, sleepy setting lighting up the recent home media releases.

Poster for Night School

Night School


Offers very little to the comedy genre and continues the recent string of average to poor Kevin Hart lead films...

Poster for The Little Stranger

The Little Stranger


The writing can’t equal the other elements on show and won’t compliment the film in the way in which it looks like it’s going to do.

Poster for Mile 22

Mile 22


Poor post-production work continually squanders any potential this element ever held.

Poster for The Rider

The Rider


Offers both the retelling of a true story and a compelling case study on one’s purpose in the face of life altering circumstances.

Poster for Apostasy



A confident debut from this first time director but I think it’s his writing that shines the brightest here.

Poster for King of Thieves

King of Thieves


Had all the potential to pull off the perfect heist movie but it lacks the pace, energy and style that it needs to standout...

The House with a Clock in Its Walls


A super job of meshing together a mixture of genres to create something that a wide range of ages can enjoy together.

The Land of Steady Habits


Should appeal to those who enjoy good writing and compelling performances.

Poster for The Miseducation of Cameron Post

The Miseducation of Cameron Post


It could definitely have been longer and more focused but it still serves its purpose as an informative, affecting and entertaining coming of age story.

Poster for Crazy Rich Asians

Crazy Rich Asians


The cast are full of energy and enthusiasm and portray such a wide variety of characters which are irresistible to watch.

Poster for American Animals

American Animals


I’ve never seen a heist movie so complex and carefully layered.

Poster for Black 47

Black 47


Remains a historical drama worth your attention and exactly the kind of film you’d be more than happy to watch in school if you were studying the Great Irish Famine.

Poster for Slender Man

Slender Man


Without a doubt a front runner for worst horror of the year, and maybe even just worst film of the year too.

Poster for Yardie



A confident directorial debut for Elba.
