Felicity Jones is a fantastic lead and is supported nicely by her co-stars but it’s the inspiring story of a woman refusing to accept the status quo which is the real star and rightly so. Review

The Hole in the Ground is a smart, original and scary piece of horror which has been transferred skillfully from page to screen. Review

Instant Family will have you laughing when you’re supposed to laugh, crying when it’s aiming for your heart and will hopefully educate and inspire families & individuals about all things adoption. Review

The lack of horror will disappoint some fans but this element bookends the film nicely with a more sci-fi comedy centre taking hold. Review

It’s simplicity in its themes and lessons is not to be sneered at but instead embraced as it brings this fantasy adventure very much into the real world, making this film as relevant as it is entertaining. Review

Far from the slam dunk it aspires to be High Flying Bird is a disappointing attempt at bringing this sporting sector to the silver screen. Review

The screenplay does take its time but when the film features a cast as talented as this it allows the chance for audiences to fully appreciate their performances, reflecting upon them as Shakespeare reflects on his life and career in this thoughtful envisioning of his later years. Review

Far from Cameron’s best work and a disappointing return to the big screen. Even without the comparisons to his previous filmography this cyberpunk action adventure just lacks heart. Review

Lord and Miller’s writing still has its moments of brilliance shown in countless moments throughout meaning that The LEGO Movie 2 is still good fun to play with but not built on quite as strong foundations as the original. Review

Approach the film with your mind as a blank canvas ready for Gilroy to paint you a picture of twisted and thrilling theatre and you should be left satisfied. Review

Are the performances better than the film itself? Quite possibly but the screenplay still provides a compelling story just one that its exceptional players give life to brilliantly, somewhat overshadowing it but for that it can certainly be forgiven. Review

With a premise as interesting as is seen here Destroyer deserves to be better. It shines in its high octane action moments and Kidman, as well as the rest of her cast, deliver brilliant performances. Review

Its mixture of tones caused by the odd range of performances fails to contribute anything positive to the film, only providing comedy that falls flat and a less than compelling story which quickly goes south. Review

The awards accolades the film has attracted are testament to how visually impressive the costume, hair and make-up is and the performances match this aesthetic in every moment. Outstays its welcome leaving viewers with a poorer impression of itself than it deserves. Review

So whilst its crime caper style comedy content keeps ‘The Mule’ light and entertaining and with the sheer unbelievable premise for the film contributing to this also complimented by Eastwood’s leading performance the lack of anything deeper than this prevents it from wholly maintaining its audience’s attention.

Thanks to Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet's compelling chemistry combined with the emotional subject matter they ensure that this heartbreaking family drama will be sure to move you. Review

Whilst not as strong as either of the films preceding it, Glass pieces together both previous narratives with skill and satisfaction delivering a Shyamalan story with all his best traits in plain view. Review

For those who have seen the original film there’s nothing new to gain here and it will be hard for those viewers not to compare it to this however The Upside will certainly appeal to new audiences and suffices as a decent, if somewhat unnecessary remake. Review
