Mortal Engines - A junkyard mess
MORTAL ENGINESA junkyard mess
In a world full of teenage post-apocalyptic stories, it's difficult to stand out from the pack. This is not the way to do it.
The Coming Back Out Ball Movie - Life's a ball!
THE COMING BACK OUT BALL MOVIELife's a ball!
It is timely and poignant but at the same time a most uplifting, bubbly and effervescent display of a community that, while it might has its flaws, is galvanised and strong.
Luis and the Aliens - Exceptionally-terrestrial
LUIS AND THE ALIENSExceptionally-terrestrial
The filmmakers didn’t understand that children are smart. Once the novelty of the cute and trying-to-be-charming aliens wears off, there is very little for these viewers who the film is intended.
Good Manners - Far from 'Twilight'
GOOD MANNERSFar from 'Twilight'
If bizarre, gruesome, sometimes lesbian, supernatural Brazilian films are your thing, ‘Good Manners’ will probably be right up your alley.
Ant-Man and the Wasp - Little film packs a big punch
ANT-MAN AND THE WASPLittle film packs a big punch
The big and small gags deliver like in the first film and it delicately treads between kitch, comedy, action and heartwarming moments.
Genesis 2.0 - The next age of man?
GENESIS 2.0The next age of man?
The duration of this documentary felt like more than its 112 minutes, and that’s a real shame. What should be the culmination of humanity and science falls very flat.
Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist - Punk's not dead
WESTWOOD: PUNK, ICON, ACTIVISTPunk's not dead
A truly inspirational and fascinating look into a style icon, this is the story of her life, and it is a fascinating life to witness.
Rampage - No monkeying about
RAMPAGENo monkeying about
An average action movie with Dwayne Johnson is almost becoming a genre unto itself, but it’s a genre that knows exactly what it is. Maybe that’s why it’s such an enjoyable guilty pleasure!
Pacific Rim Uprising - A flaccid mess
PACIFIC RIM UPRISINGA flaccid mess
You are left sorely disappointed. When plot points seemingly contradict each other as well as the very laws of nature, you have to wonder if anyone actually said, “We sure about this?”
Blockers - Prom night disaster
BLOCKERSProm night disaster
This movie will leave you exceptionally well-entertained. It captures both the teenage and adult experience so successfully, and has a heart as big as John Cena’s hands.
Red Sparrow - Elegantly brutal
RED SPARROWElegantly brutal
This film is a long, slow and deep breath of fresh air in a genre that has become too reliant on fast-paced action and explosions. Jennifer Lawrence shows us more than we’ve ever seen of her before.
The Party - One decadent evening
THE PARTYOne decadent evening
A wickedly dark, funny and thought-provoking ride. Not a moment out of place or not needed - it’s a masterpiece, and a party you'll gladly want to attend again.
Maze Runner: The Death Cure - Dead end
MAZE RUNNER: THE DEATH CUREDead end
‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ is a long and straight road to a predictable conclusion that will leave no one asking any more questions. What a dead end.
Mary And The Witch's Flower - More magic required
MARY AND THE WITCH'S FLOWERMore magic required
This is not a terrible time at the cinema, but is also not a particularly memorable one. Perhaps they should have used some of the Witch’s Flower to put a little more magic into this film.
Saturday Night Fever - Disco’s not dead!
SATURDAY NIGHT FEVERDisco’s not dead!
The impact ‘Saturday Night Fever’ has had on pop culture is immeasurable. 40 years on, its music remains unstoppable, and is still one of the most purchased film soundtracks of all time.
Breathe - A long exhale
BREATHEA long exhale
Robin Cavendish lived a remarkable life and is a source of inspiration and hope, but there is something about ‘Breathe’ that sort of falls short, turning the breath into more of a yawn.
The Limehouse Golem - Here we are again
THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEMHere we are again
There is a definite charm around the film and you literally have every British actor who is alive right now in it. That said, I still don't think I know whodunnit.
Tom of Finland - The man behind the Icon
TOM OF FINLANDThe man behind the Icon
‘Tom of Finland’ is a very well-crafted biopic that delivers on all its promises - a slice of history that shows there is freedom and self-expression in art.
Atomic Blonde - Explosive fun
ATOMIC BLONDEExplosive fun
'Atomic Blonde’ is slick, fun and gripping spy movie that will have you going along for the ride. It's superbly acted, with a wonderful accompanying soundtrack.
A Monster Calls - A wonderful and important story
A MONSTER CALLSA wonderful and important story
‘A Monster Calls’ is an important film, giving children a point of reference to deal with grief, making and making adults cry uncontrollably. You should all go see this beautiful film.
Dunkirk - Grand theatre of war
DUNKIRKGrand theatre of war
At the end of the day, 'Dunkirk' is a blockbuster. Probably one of the best blockbusters we've had this year, but I’d lower the expectations. It will make the whole thing more epic.
Men In Black - Back in black 20 years on
MEN IN BLACKBack in black 20 years on
Say what you will about 'Men In Black', it fulfils the alien action/adventure/comedy so well that it is as iconic as the agency (or lack of agency) that there is.
A Modern Man - A model life
A MODERN MANA model life
While this documentary is mostly a glory piece, if you like classical music and hot guys, you will enjoy 'A Modern Man’ - otherwise you might be left like I was, cold and unable to connect.
25 Years of Sister Act - Hallelujah!
25 YEARS OF SISTER ACTHallelujah!
Give me a fake nun and a bunch of musical numbers, and I am set to enjoy a film. Can you believe that ‘Sister Act’ is now 25 years old? Good Lord above!
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 - Still awesome
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2Still awesome
It’s a fun ride, full of action, groovy music and a whole lot of humour, 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' is the intergalactic adventure we all expect from this franchise.
Life - Wasted potential
LIFEWasted potential
The premise of ‘Life’ is tried and tested and it’s one of those things that, if kept extremely simple, could have been a really gripping space horror.
Logan - Fantastically real
LOGANFantastically real
While it might be the end of one huge part of the Marvel Universe, hopefully it's the beginning of another: the start of a grittier, more emotionally real universe.
T2 Trainspotting - Take another hit
T2 TRAINSPOTTINGTake another hit
The world has changed a lot since the original grungy and gritty film, and T2 might have been better left in the station.
Hidden Figures - Out of the shadows
HIDDEN FIGURESOut of the shadows
‘Hidden Figures’ is a film not to be missed. It is important that these kinds of stories are told. Without diversity, there is no strength.
La La Land - Utterly charming
LA LA LANDUtterly charming
The music is just sublime, Justin Hurwitz has done an impeccable job of creating a somehow modern yet also timeless score to accompany a movie that could be described with the exact same words.
Red Dog: True Blue - A much-needed Aussie tale
RED DOG: TRUE BLUEA much-needed Aussie tale
It's one for the whole family to enjoy, and an important one to support. We need more Australian films like 'Red Dog: True Blue'.
Every Thing Will Be Fine - Will It?
EVERY THING WILL BE FINEWill It?
James Franco and Rachel McAdams just don’t do enough to make it a movie we actually want to care about.

Dirty Games - Foul play
DIRTY GAMESFoul play
'Dirty Games' is an astonishing exposé on the underside of the world of professional sports.
4 Kings - Not so merry Christmas
4 KINGSNot so merry Christmas
The head psychiatrist rebels against the institution and refuses to see these children as their conditions. It's not issues and children, it's children then issues.
Doctor Strange - Pure magic
DOCTOR STRANGEPure magic
Magic. A movie doesn't need much more than that to drag me in.
Pete's Dragon - A magical ride
PETE'S DRAGONA magical ride
Dark for a children’s movie and at times emotionally intense, it's hard not to be taken along for the ride.
Sausage Party - Uninvite me
SAUSAGE PARTYUninvite me
If you're looking for a lowest common denominator trip to the cinema, seeing 'Sausage Party' you might just fit the bill.
Bad Moms - Not as bad as you'd think!
BAD MOMSNot as bad as you'd think!
This is a fun, outrageous and sometimes disgusting film, but in the end you’ll have a fantastic time.
Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie - Pop the Bolly!
ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS: THE MOVIEPop the Bolly!
You aren’t going to leave the cinema with thoughts provoked or deeply moved, but you will have a fabulous time with fabulous old friends.
Ghostbusters - Girlpower of the supernatural kind
GHOSTBUSTERSGirlpower of the supernatural kind
Nostalgia plays a big part in ‘Ghostbusters’.
Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates - Boys to men
MIKE AND DAVE NEED WEDDING DATESBoys to men
With moments that will make you cringe, moments that will shock you, and moments that will have you holding your sides to keep them from exploding, it's definitely worth being a date to this wedding!
Independence Day: Resurgence - Should we have learned?
INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCEShould we have learned?
'Independence Day: Resurgence' is a very solid action movie that is likely to become a franchise all of its own.
Finding Dory - A gold(fishy) sequel
FINDING DORYA gold(fishy) sequel
Delivering everything we have come to expect from a Disney Pixar movie, this film is a beautiful addition to their collection.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows - Shell-shocked
TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWSShell-shocked
This is a tween boy's dream of a movie, or a bunch of guys in their mid-thirties reconnecting with their childhood.
Eddie the Eagle - A Leap of faith
EDDIE THE EAGLEA Leap of faith
This film is equal parts inspiring, charming, loving, funny and thrilling.
Blind Date - If these walls could talk
BLIND DATEIf these walls could talk
This is definitely a date night choice with enough quirk, charm and heart to keep everyone who sees it happy until the very end.
The Brand New Testament - What if God was one of us?
THE BRAND NEW TESTAMENTWhat if God was one of us?
A black comedy for the atheists at heart, 'The Brand New Testament' is a part of the bible you will definitely want to read.
Microbe And Gasoline - A long road
MICROBE AND GASOLINEA long road
Coming-of-age films are rarely as charming and funny as this.
