4/5 100% Relic (2020) Compelling, suspenseful, and downright terrifying in places, Relic is a movie with a lot to say, and establishes Natalie Erika James as a filmmaker to watch in future.‐

5/5 80% Batman Returns (1992) Tim Burton's Batman Returns is a masterpiece, and the tour de force performances from the trio of Michael Keaton, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Danny DeVito are nothing short of iconic. ‐

4/5 71% Batman (1989) Like Gotham City, Batman is a little rough at times, but Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson's wonderfully weird performances (and Tim Burton's unique vision for the DC Universe) mean it deserves to be remembered as a classic. ‐

2/5 9% Artemis Fowl (2020) Lara McDonnell delivers a breakout performance, and Kenneth Branagh does an admirable job creating this fantasy world, but it's still not enough to save this mediocre and muddled adaptation of Artemis Fowl. ‐

4/5 100% Justice League Dark: Apokolips War (2020) A bloody, R-Rated romp, Justice League Dark: Apokolips War serves as a fittingly epic finale to this era of stories, and boasts a downright unmissable performance from Matt Ryan as Constantine. ‐

3/5 50% Scoob! (2020) A better Dick Dastardly story than Scooby-Doo caper, Scoob! will definitely entertain the kids, but would have benefited from spending more time with the adorable "Baby Scoob."‐

5/5 41% Capone (2020) Tom Hardy delivers a transformative performance which stands among his best, while director Josh Trank's return to filmmaking is a triumph in Capone, an unmissable examination of Fonzo's final year on Earth.‐

5/5 68% Extraction (2020) Extraction features a Chris Hemsworth more badass than Bond and more brutal than Bourne, and Sam Hargrave's debut feature will hopefully serve as a launching platform for this to be an action-packed new franchise on Netflix. ‐

1.5/5 31% Bloodshot (2020) Despite some enjoyable action scenes, Bloodshot fails to bring anything new to the superhero genre, and Valiant's wannabe MCU is already off to a disappointing and disastrous start (Vin Diesel, meanwhile, needs to stick to Fast & Furious). ‐

3/5 56% The Hunt (2020) The Hunt belongs to the amazing Betty Gilpin, and while it delivers some big shocks and thrilling moments, it's not quite as controversial as you might have been led to believe. ‐

3.5/5 38% Spenser Confidential (2020) A fun if somewhat forgettable ride, Mark Wahlberg and Winston Duke steal the show in Spencer Confidential, and we definitely wouldn't say no to getting to watch this duo solve more mysteries in the not too distant future. ‐

2.5/5 8% Fantasy Island (2020) This take on the classic TV series boasts some fun twists, but isn't quite bold enough to leave a lasting impact. Still, there's potential for future stories, and a ticket to Fantasy Island does offer one of the most twisted trips of 2020.‐

5/5 91% The Invisible Man (2020) The first must-see horror movie of 2020, The Invisible Man is destined to be a classic, and Elizabeth Moss' incredible performance proves to be impossible to tear your eyes from. ‐

5/5 88% Onward (2020) Onward is a masterpiece, and an unmissable fantasy adventure from Pixar. Stars Chris Pratt and Tom Holland steal the show, and this is a vibrant, wonderfully exciting world we definitely hope to return to.‐

4/5 44% Pokémon the Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution (2019) It doesn't reinvent the wheel, but Mewtwo Strikes Back - Evolution looks phenomenal thanks to its updated visuals, and the action-packed and epic battles help make this the perfect Pokémon movie for fans. ‐

4/5 61% The Call of the Wild (2020) A perfect film for dog lovers and a heartwarming adventure in its own right, The Call of the Wild features a wonderfully understated performance from Harrison Ford, and is a ride definitely worth taking. ‐

4/5 88% Superman: Red Son (2020) With a strong story and a stellar cast, Superman: Red Son features complex and compelling takes on characters like Superman and Lex Luthor which help put it up there with classics like Under The Red Hood and The Killing Joke.‐
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2020
4/5 65% The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) Despite a few minor flaws, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is a superb (and suitably epic) addition to Peter Jackson's past adaptations of Tolkien's work. See it in 3D and 48fps for the ultimate experience.‐

3/5 72% The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) A flawed but still solid Spider-Man movie which delivers plenty of spectacular moments to keep comic book fans happy. However, a few too many unanswered questions stop it from living up to that "Amazing" title. ‐

5/5 92% Marvel's The Avengers (2012) Clever, funny, emotional, and downright amazing; The Avengers is a spectacle which demands repeat viewings. Joss Whedon has delivered what is quite simply an epic comic book movie masterpiece.‐

5/5 87% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) The Dark Knight Rises delivers a satisfying and emotional conclusion to a trilogy which will go down in history as one of the best ever. This is Christopher Nolan's crowning achievement and a perfect Batman film.‐
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2020
5/5 94% The Dark Knight (2008) A masterpiece. Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight is not only one of the greatest comic book movies you'll ever see, but also one of the best films of all-time.‐
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2020
4/5 84% Batman Begins (2005) Batman Begins is easily one of the best films featuring the iconic DC Comics superhero, but far from perfect, despite telling what may just end up being the definitive big screen origin story for the Dark Knight. ‐
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2020
3/5 56% Man of Steel (2013) It may not have lived up to the hype, but Man of Steel is still the best modern Superman movie, and well worth checking out even if the screenplay delivers its fair share of disappointments. Still, this feels like a solid opening chapter from Zack Snyder.‐

5/5 91% Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) James Gunn has taken a group of characters that the majority didn't care about two years ago and made them guaranteed fan favourites in a movie that's not only one of the most awesome Marvel movies yet, but also 2014's best.‐

4/5 90% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) Despite being plagued by some familiar problems in Bryan Singer's X-Men movies, this thrilling time-travelling adventure combines the casts of two eras of the franchise for possibly the best instalment yet. ‐
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2020
1/5 51% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) With appalling dialogue, slapstick humour, some bizarre aesthetics, and cheesy moments aplenty (Peter's Spider-Man theme ringtone or Electro beating Spidey up to the tune of "Incy Wincy Spider"), this is the Batman & Robin of the Spider-Man franchise.‐
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2020
4/5 64% Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) Sonic the Hedgehog is an awesome adventure perfect for fans of all-ages, and this definitely isn't a franchise we want it to be "Game Over" for, for a very long time to come (especially after a couple of unmissable post-credits scenes). ‐
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2020
5/5 78% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Better than Deadpool, Birds of Prey delivers the Harley Quinn adventure fans have spent years waiting for and is one of the best DC Comics movies to date. ‐

4/5 89% 1917 (2020) A stunning technical achievement, 1917 might just be Sam Mendes' best film yet but this well choreographed series of events play out too neatly to ensure the horrors of war will leave a lasting impact.‐
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2020
5/5 83% Just Mercy (2020) Make no mistake about it: Shang-Chi is in safe hands with director Destin Daniel Cretton and no matter how invested you are in that film, Just Mercy should not be missed, especially with another unbelievable performance from Michael B. Jordan.‐
Read More | Posted Jan 8, 2020
4/5 80% Jojo Rabbit (2019) A reminder that love can prevail in even the bleakest situations, Taika Waititi delivers another standout movie with Jojo Rabbit and keeps us going with this fun flick until he brings the thunder with the next Thor movie.‐

4/5 75% The Gentlemen (2020) The Gentlemen is another gangster movie classic from Guy Ritchie and as Hugh Grant's hilariously seedy journalist puts it, here's hoping it's "laying pipe" for a sequel. ‐

2.5/5 51% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) A mostly terrible movie with some admittedly great moments, you'd be better off skipping Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and binge-watching a few episodes of The Mandalorian instead.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2019
4/5 71% Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) The Next Level makes good use of the first movie's formula and injects it with heaps of humour, action, and amazing performances which all ensure that Jumanji is a game you'll want to play again and again. ‐
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2019
5/5 97% Knives Out (2019) A classic yet still thoroughly original whodunnit, Knives Out is a movie of the year contender and makes great use of its incredible cast while keeping you guessing from start to finish. ‐

4/5 79% Code 8 (2019) An investment that definitely paid off, Code 8 is a thrill a minute must-see that delivers a fresh take on superpowers and features a scene-stealing performance from Robbie Amell.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 2, 2019
4/5 77% Frozen II (2019) Frozen II would have benefited from travelling into the unknown a little more but it's still another big win for Disney Animation and features plenty of great songs every bit as catchy as "Let it Go."‐

5/5 92% Ford v Ferrari (2019) Gear up for one of 2019's best movies as director James Mangold delivers edge of your seat thrills along with the compelling story of two legendary racing pioneers and another amazing Christian Bale performance. ‐

4/5 70% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Hitting Ctrl-Alt-Delete on the past three movies was the right move and despite a familiar premise and story, the female-focused Terminator: Dark Fate is a bold step forward for the franchise and one of 2019's best action movies. ‐
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2019
1.5/5 40% Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) A grim and depressing sequel, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is a completely unnecessary and disappointing effort which seemingly sets out to rob viewers of the usual enjoyment a Disney movie provides. ‐
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2019
4/5 68% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) A worthy sequel, Zombieland: Double Tap is awesome and destined to be another cult classic. Every bit as funny and charming as its predecessor, the zombie action is better than The Walking Dead and Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg steal the show.‐

4/5 81% Abominable (2019) A stunning movie led by a stellar performance from Chloe Bennet, Abominable is an absolute blast with heaps of beautiful visuals and plenty of heart. ‐
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2019
5/5 91% El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie is a perfect epilogue to the greatest TV show of all-time and an incredible movie in its own right. Aaron Paul's tour de force performance is utterly jaw-dropping and perhaps the best work of his career.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2019
3.5/5 88% Wonder Woman: Bloodlines (2019) Stellar action scenes and strong character work make Wonder Woman: Bloodlines a must-see but a better story would have helped place this latest DC animated movie among some of the studio's truly classic efforts. ‐
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2019
5/5 68% Joker (2019) One of the best comic book movies of all-time, Joker takes us to some dark places but it's a richly rewarding (and haunting) experience which is anchored by an unbelievable performance from Joaquin Phoenix. It's a masterpiece. ‐
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2019
3/5 14% Night Hunter (Nomis) (2019) Night Hunter might not leave a lasting impact but it's an exciting thriller full of killer twists and turns which will keep you guessing and the amazing cast alone makes it worth checking out. ‐

2/5 63% It Chapter Two (2019) Andy Muschietti has assembled a terrific cast to battle Pennywise in the present day but a muddled and meandering plot bogs the follow-up down and stops It: Chapter 2 from being the essential, epic conclusion fans hoped for.‐

5/5 75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) Avengers: Age of Utron is proof that Marvel can do no wrong, and as they continue to add new players to the table and reshape this world in a way which keeps it feeling exciting and fresh, the future looks brighter than ever for the MCU.‐

4/5 83% Ant-Man (2015) Even those who nitpick Marvel's approach to their movies are sure to find something to love in Ant-Man, while fans will undoubtedly adore each and every second. A funny movie with a lot of heart, it's one of Marvel Studios' best origin stories.‐
