ON THE ROAD
Shot like a classic, featuring spectacular views of the American countryside and a cast who clearly had fun making the film. It's a stunning film if you're a fan of Jack Kerouac's work.
Spree - A flawed but fun black comedy
SPREE
A flawed but fun black comedy
On the surface, it's an equally fun and bleak look at a young man driven to insanity by his own hubris. It's just a shame the surface is all there is to it.
The High Note - A mid-tempo comedy romp
THE HIGH NOTE
A mid-tempo comedy romp
You could do a lot worse than 'The High Note' for a light two hours when there's nothing else to watch; it's just unfortunate that its charismatic cast can't save an off-pitch script.
Dolly Parton: 50 Years at the Opry - Celebrating the Queen of country music
WIN DOLLY PARTON: 50 YEARS AT THE OPRY
Celebrating the Queen of country music
Win one of five copies of 'Dolly Parton: 50 Years at the Opry'.
Spiral - Paranoid horror in the 'burbs
SPIRAL
Paranoid horror in the 'burbs
An atmospheric, slow-burn thriller with some very current themes, it leans a little too heavily on both its cinematic influences and cheap "boo" scares.
The Secrets We Keep - They kept a big secret... this movie is mediocre
THE SECRETS WE KEEP
They kept a big secret... this movie is mediocre
It offers a compelling story, but as soon as it's set up, it loses steam. Once we come to terms that the outcome can only be one of two possibilities, we are waiting for the film to show us its cards.
Easy A - Top marks for the teen comedy on its 10th anniversary
EASY A
Top marks for the teen comedy on its 10th anniversary
After 10 years, this is a teen comedy classic that's also an incredibly important look into how female sexuality can be controlled and governed by others from teenagerhood.
Trolls World Tour - Poppy and the gang are back - and rocking harder than ever
TROLLS WORLD TOUR
Poppy and the gang are back - and rocking harder than ever
When you have a team that cares about the project at every level, you end up with not only a fun kid's film, but one with a powerful message.
An American Pickle - An uneven comedy that hasn't quite fermented enough
AN AMERICAN PICKLE
An uneven comedy that hasn't quite fermented enough
Its greatest assets are Seth Rogen's performances and first-time director Brandon Trost, who shows great potential, but it has an uneven flavour, where the many ingredients don't come together.
Four Kids and It - Be careful what you wish for
FOUR KIDS AND IT
Be careful what you wish for
What it lacks in comedy and childlike wonder, it does make up for in interesting takeaways. It will be great for young kids stuck at home, running out of things to watch and searching for adventure.
The Witches - 30 years on, it's still as delightfully frightening as ever
THE WITCHES
30 years on, it's still as delightfully frightening as ever
Kids love to be scared, and 'The Witches' is the perfect scary children's film; it has everything you could want, and has been a stable in kids' horror for 30 years now.
After We Collided - Wattpad returns to the screen for slightly better, still dumb, results
AFTER WE COLLIDED
Wattpad returns to the screen for slightly better, still dumb, results
It isn't looking to be a critical darling, it knows its market and goes for it. You could pick apart its terrible script and bad acting - but it's hot trash, and that's all it needs to be.
Becky - Bloody fun with untapped potential
BECKY
Bloody fun with untapped potential
An unlikely mash-up of 'John Wick'-style violence and 'Home Alone' hijinks, one that's best enjoyed when common sense is left at the door. If only its writing and plot were as well done as its gore.
Buffaloed - Financial horrors solved by sass, gamesmanship and Zoey Deutch
BUFFALOED
Financial horrors solved by sass, gamesmanship and Zoey Deutch
It reaches for lofty heights but never quite gets there. It's fun, slick and fast-paced, but most of its success is thanks to Deutch and the supporting cast.
The New Mutants - An enjoyably small-scale superheroic character piece
THE NEW MUTANTS
An enjoyably small-scale superheroic character piece
Josh Boone's relic from the defunct 'X-Men' franchise, unceremoniously dumped in cinemas in the middle of a pandemic, takes a step in a potentially interesting new direction.
Mulan - The Disney classic in 2020 - will it finally bring honour to us all?
MULAN
The Disney classic in 2020 - will it finally bring honour to us all?
Disney took a big risk with 'Mulan' - it's their only remake that takes risks and pulls them off, and that's something to celebrate. It's not afraid to be different, and uses that in its favour.
Fatima - A respectful retelling of a miraculous story
FATIMA
A respectful retelling of a miraculous story
A handsomely filmed and respectful retelling of a true story, one that sees people still flocking to Portugal each year, over 100 years later, to try and catch a glimpse of what those children saw.
Hope Gap - Enough hope, but too many gaps
HOPE GAP
Enough hope, but too many gaps
Audiences certainly feel that there is hope, but the gaps along the way are too frequent to feel any genuine satisfaction. Go for the acting masterclass, stay for the gorgeous seaside.
Irresistible - A behind-the-scenes look into the broken U.S. electoral system
IRRESISTIBLE
A behind-the-scenes look into the broken U.S. electoral system
Despite the incredible and comedically gifted cast and filmmaker, 'Irresistible' is... well, boring. It's interesting as a political commentary but as far as laughs, it's pretty much a snooze.
Dirt Music - A typically flawed Tim Winton adaptation
DIRT MUSIC
A typically flawed Tim Winton adaptation
The film asks us to embrace two lost characters who eventually go to the edge of the earth to find themselves. Unfortunately, for us, they remain strangers to the end.
The Turning - Henry James' haunting masterpiece gets 'The Conjuring' treatment
THE TURNING
Henry James' haunting masterpiece gets 'The Conjuring' treatment
It gets its scares on the cheap, relying on tricks like haggard faces popping out of the unfilled spaces behind characters. It's a shame the script wasn't written by someone more skilled and nuanced.
Tenet - Time runs up, like my enjoyment of Nolan’s latest film
TENET
Time runs up, like my enjoyment of Nolan’s latest film
The film has to be interesting, and this simply isn't. Nothing here makes me want to work things out; it's forgettable. Unfortunately, 'Tenet' is not here to save the 2020 box office.
Les Misérables - A remarkably thrilling act of cinematic protest
LES MISÉRABLES
A remarkably thrilling act of cinematic protest
A remarkable, electrifying and ultimately shattering film, a stellar debut for Ladj Ly, and most importantly, a work that feels necessary. It's a thrilling act of cinematic protest.
The Mystery of Henri Pick - A charming literary detective story
THE MYSTERY OF HENRI PICK
A charming literary detective story
For a film about a man ruining his life over (possibly) a great literary fraud, this is a surprisingly pleasant, sophisticated and light-hearted crowd-pleaser.
The Wretched - Uneven but satisfyingly disgusting
THE WRETCHED
Uneven but satisfyingly disgusting
The Pierce Brothers suck viewers in with pulpy wet sounds of flesh popping open or bones splintering. These scares aren't just competent - they're consummately disgusting and appreciably creepy, too.
Servants - An austere glimpse behind the Iron Curtain in Czechoslovakia
SERVANTS
An austere glimpse behind the Iron Curtain in Czechoslovakia
While it's certainly impressive, filled with striking cinematography and flashes where we glimpse the strange, surreal world behind the Iron Curtain, it feels like an unfinished film.
