82% Eddie The Eagle (2016) Few films are this delightful and positive - I challenge you not to get swept up in Eddie's story and root for him along the way.‐ Charlotte Sometimes Goes to the Movies

82% The Book of Life (2014) The film is beautifully animated with some breath-taking imagery. The use of colour is particularly striking, vibrantly expressing life, love and joy. ‐ Charlotte Sometimes Goes to the Movies

78% Goosebumps (2015) If you're looking for a light-hearted movie with a bit of bite, or something to entertain your children that won't melt your brain, this is it. A very pleasant surprise.‐ Charlotte Sometimes Goes to the Movies

4.5/5 86% The Wife (2018) Whilst The Wife as a film itself is an above-average drama, Glenn Close's performance is the memorable factor. It's a tour de force performance; a powerhouse display that fully commands the screen.‐ VultureHound

5/5 94% Blindspotting (2018) Blindspotting is 95 minutes long, with tight storytelling of a truly compelling narrative that is made all the more intense with the pace it is told at. It's one of reasons it was my favourite film of 2018.‐ VultureHound

90% Their Finest (2017) It's a well-told story with exquisite mise-en-scene, costumes, lighting and staging. It'll fill you up with warmth due to its sincerity and intelligence -- acting as a much-needed catharsis for our times.‐ Den of Geek

4/5 76% The Lure (2016) Filmed in the truly beautiful and awe-inspiring Rocky Mountains landscapes, with the occasional breathtaking overhead drone shots, the individuals are left to tell their own story, not have one inflicted upon them. ‐ Den of Geek

4/5 89% Plus One (2019) With a running time of 99 minutes, Plus One is a charming and delightful take on the romcom. A refreshing and spirited sorbet to the many saccharine movies that pop up around this time of year.‐ Charlotte Sometimes Goes to the Movies

4/5 94% The Personal History of David Copperfield (2020) What really makes it spark as brightly as it does is the cast who weave those words into gold. ‐ Charlotte Sometimes Goes to the Movies

5/5 86% Emma. (2020) Much like the film overall, it's a perfect match - of sumptuous sets, intimate cinematography, perfect scoring, stunning costumes, charming performances and witty screenplay. Just superb.‐ Charlotte Sometimes Goes to the Movies

4/5 79% Jojo Rabbit (2019) Waititi yet again finds the heart in amongst the darkness, the sweet within the bitter: reminding us of the need to listen, pay attention and look out for each other. ‐ cultbox

3/5 81% Abominable (2019) It's truly beautiful to look at, even if the premise is rather light.‐ cultbox

2/5 68% Joker (2019) For just over two hours we are forced into alignment with a monster. And, not only that, it wants us to unrepentantly side with him. It feels hyperbolic to say that this results in a terrible sense of inescapable unease when watching, but it's the truth.‐ cultbox

4/5 97% Pain and Glory (Dolor y gloria) (2019) Courtesy of Almodóvar's masterful direction and a career-finest performance from Banderas, we feel every moment with Salvador. The pain, the glory, and everything in-between.‐ cultbox

4/5 89% Blinded by the Light (2019) As gloriously euphoric as the finest of Bruce's anthems.‐ cultbox
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2020
3/5 84% Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019) A delightful throwback to 80s family-adventure movies -- camp, funny, slapstick and just the right amount of silly.‐ cultbox

67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) This kind of feels like a sorbet, a palate cleanser after action flicks that try so hard to be serious that end up being dull, or confuse dark with bland murkiness.‐ cultbox
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2020
3/5 85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) A long plod through Tarantino's reflections on Hollywood in 1969 that are summed up pretty well by the shrug emoji.‐ cultbox

4/5 60% The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019) This is a very sweet and very funny animation that will charm audiences of all ages. A huge surprise, but a joyous one.‐ cultbox

4/5 90% Freedom Fields (2018) Empowering, vibrant, and vital.‐ cultbox

3/5 57% Aladdin (2019) Will Smith puts a fun spin on proceedings. He brings his "A" game, which we haven't seen in some of his recent outings.‐ cultbox

5/5 97% Booksmart (2019) The story, the players, and the two leads are all endearing in the very best of ways -- warm, funny, charming and bloody lovely.‐ cultbox

4/5 68% Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) This is a film rooted in a ludicrous concept that doesn't just work, but excels because of the amount of heart that has gone into making it. It's earnest, endearing, and well worth a Pika.‐ cultbox

2/5 50% Tolkien (2019) It's a biopic that somehow glosses over things whilst also simultaneously spending too long on them, too. ‐ cultbox
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2020
4/5 82% Long Shot (2019) Long Shot may not be the return of the romcom, but it's certainly a real return to form.‐ cultbox

2/5 47% Dumbo (2019) Whilst the visuals are big, bold and bright -- they're also synthetic and bizarrely joyless. As are the characters. ‐ cultbox

4/5 90% Shazam! (2019) There's real joy to be had by watching Shazam, a contagious feeling of childish glee and enthusiasm.‐ cultbox

4/5 78% Captain Marvel (2019) Solidly good and very enjoyable. But the film has flickers of greatness, most of which are when the film takes on the form of buddy comedy with Larson paired with Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury. Jackson and Brie have a hilarious rapport.‐ cultbox

4/5 100% Two for Joy (2018) Writer-director Tom Beard, making his feature film director debut, has created characters who are presented honestly but humanely. They're openly flawed but treated sympathetically, we cannot help but care for them.‐ cultbox

4/5 89% The Kid Who Would Be King (2019) Grab the kids and go see it. Go laugh, maybe get a bit weepy and get fully engaged in a cracking story. Are you not entertained?‐ cultbox

3/5 60% The Front Runner (2018) The drama itself plays out in a rather compelling manner... A prevailing sense of inevitability resides, akin to the feeling of watching a car crash happening and being unable to look away.‐ cultbox
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2020
2/5 35% Welcome to Marwen (2018) It desperately wants to be a film about resilience, recovery, and redemption. Instead, it ends up being a serious absurdity of epic proportions, that is as plastic and hollow as the dolls who reside within it.‐ cultbox

5/5 79% Mary Poppins Returns (2018) I left the screen with a face that ached from smiling and a body that felt dehydrated from all the sobbing that had occured. This is simultaneously movie magic and movie medicine that doesn't need a spoonful of sugar to go down.‐ cultbox

97% Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) There's a perfect balance between humor and pathos, a regular stream of jokes occasionally intersected with moments of real heart.‐ cultbox

65% The Christmas Chronicles (2018) If you like ridiculousness, holiday spirit, festive puns of the highest order -- then get your Netflix ready. Grinches need not apply.‐ cultbox

1/5 14% Little Italy (2018) To say this movie is as cheesy as the pizza that appears in practically every frame of it is something of a compliment. That's because cheese is awesome and cheesy pizza is doubly awesome. This film is not.‐ VultureHound

2/5 41% Hell Fest (2018) It's not really a trick or a treat. Think throwaway instead.‐ VultureHound
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2020
2/5 36% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) This is a film made with the intent for profiting off the fans without actually caring for them.‐ VultureHound

3.5/5 59% The Grinch (2018) A festive treat that is a sort-of delight.‐ VultureHound
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2020
1/5 29% Elliot The Littlest Reindeer (2018) The entire thing is so misjudged, with a plot that is cloying, saccharine and poorly sketched out. It's like a Frankenstein's Monster of a Christmas animation, picking and mixing the various parts of much loved, and much better, movies.‐ VultureHound

2/5 27% Night School (2018) In front of the camera the performances seem laboured and fully phoned in. Behind the camera there seems to be minimal direction or structure. And in front of the screen? You'll have given up too.‐ VultureHound

3/5 68% The Seagull (2018) Essentially a solid sunday night drama. Enjoyable yet rather disposable.‐ VultureHound
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2020
2/5 33% An Actor Prepares (2018) The film feels like it's trying to satirise by saying it is a satire without actually doing any satire.‐ VultureHound

2/5 54% Yardie (2019) Tonally uneven, too slow at some points and too speedy at others; it makes for an okay, if rather forgettable watch.‐ VultureHound
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2020
4/5 77% The King (2018) A lament for something that everyone thought they knew but never actually existed, not as we wanted it to be anyway.‐ VultureHound
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2020
4/5 No Score Yet One Note at a Time (2016) A rich watch that also serves as a warning; if you love hearing this music, what exactly are you doing to keep it alive?‐ VultureHound
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2020
4/5 79% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) Bigger, brighter, bonkers-er. In short -- it's exactly what we need right now. ‐ VultureHound
