4/5 98% Vitalina Varela (2020) Though it may seem taxing, Vitalina Varela reveals controlled reserves of power and pictorial majesty over a stealthy two hours, rewarding your focus in slow, sure increments.‐ The List

4/5 92% The Invisible Man (2020) With steady character work banking our investment, Whannell tightens the screws to scare.‐ Total Film

3/5 63% Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) The fast-paced furball generates enough goodwill to stay ahead of expectations, outstripping various underachieving video-game movie competitors on his merry way.‐ The List

2/5 28% The Rhythm Section (2020) Blake Lively has been a suitably enlivening presence across a spread of genres. But even she can't do much to drag director Reed Morano's sluggish spy vehicle out of its doldrums.‐ The List

3/5 91% Show Me the Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall (2019) Whatever you make of the man, his exhilarating, of-its-moment work can't help but stir a few pangs of longing for bygone eras.‐ The List

5/5 92% Uncut Gems (2019) A time-bomb of foolish compulsion and childlike rage, Sandler maintains our attention and empathy even as his behaviour becomes increasingly moronic and morally impaired.‐ Total Film

3/5 72% Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) Dashes of seasonal sentiment complete the picture in an amiable, albeit unadventurous sequel; it's festive fun for anyone in need of the reassuringly familiar.‐ The List

3/5 52% Charlie's Angels (2019) When it does work, the leads and a string of sparky set-pieces provide saving graces.‐ Total Film

2/5 26% Countdown (2019) Lapses into silliness, expedient plotting and cliche finally scupper Countdown's wi-fright intentions.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2019
4/5 70% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Miller strains too hard to impress with his multi-stacked climactic set-pieces, but not before he's hammered a dented franchise back into brash, action-fit shape.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2019
3/5 39% Angel Has Fallen (2019) Engages only when a healthy awareness of its ridiculousness penetrates the macho self-regard and strenuous grimacing. Which isn't very often.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2019
3/5 78% Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) There's plenty going on even when the plot gets choppy.‐ The List

2/5 73% The Angry Birds Movie 2 (2019) A cheerful but gaudy and relentless mess: barfed up without pace or purpose, it's sugar-binge children's cinema of a largely ungainly stripe.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Jul 29, 2019
3/5 82% Sometimes Always Never (Triple Word Score) (2020) Hunter's poised compositions brim with playful invention, though both the script and images sometimes seem to strain to draw attention to their quirks.‐ The List

2/5 22% Dark Phoenix (2019) Despite mostly sparky cast-work, the Phoenix never quite rises as hoped in Kinberg's affectionate but often perfunctory X-Men send-off.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2019
3/5 43% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) If the chemistry between Farmiga and Brown goes underused, opportunities for monster mayhem do not.‐ The List
Read More | Posted May 28, 2019
4/5 89% John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019) If you thought Wick 2's turbo-powered takedowns could not be out-powered, think on: intermittent stumbles aside, Parabellum swiftly asserts itself as 2019's actioner to beat.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted May 10, 2019
4/5 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) Although it verges on fan-service and self-service, the film's central hour earns both because the balance of comedy, drama and action to playful invention and careful characterisation holds so sure.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2019
4/5 93% Us (2019) Peele doubles down on his genre love with a flawed but full-bore frightener, ripe for debate. Nyong'o is incendiary.‐ Total Film

4/5 61% Vox Lux (2018) Delivers a potent pop-arthouse provocation in millennial drag. And Portman? She's electric.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2019
3/5 84% Hannah (2018) Though too scrupulously enigmatic and reserved for its own good, it unfolds as a magnetic showcase for Rampling, whose powers of fine-tuned restraint and release sing out of every frame.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Feb 25, 2019
4/5 77% Green Book (2018) Awards-bait or not, Green Book plays as a deftly disarming film about friendship and unity in divisive times: calculated, perhaps, but calculated from a kind, sincere place.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2019
3/5 37% Glass (2019) If you're looking for a nifty summation of Shyamalan's strengths and weaknesses, this cracked looking glass of a film has it all.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2019
4/5 90% The Raft (2019) A film rippling with insights into identity politics and humanity under pressure.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Jan 14, 2019
2/5 26% Mortal Engines (2018) An imposing but unwieldy hodgepodge of fragments from other films, it lurches between gargantuan sets and set-pieces with little sense of grace or pace, let alone space for emotional engagement.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Dec 10, 2018
4/5 90% Bumblebee (2018) Knight and Hodson have salvaged something agreeable from an otherwise badly dented series.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Dec 9, 2018
4/5 88% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) What starts as a splatter-gun celebration of cyberspace spectacle becomes a savvy, sweet fable of friendship and online distraction, its in-jokes and emotional stakes interwoven with surprising subtlety.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Nov 26, 2018
2/5 32% The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018) A random hodgepodge of underpowered set-pieces, all dressed up with nowhere to go but back to the well of unwitting saviour figures visiting gaudy fantasy worlds.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2018
4/5 90% Mirai (2018) Even if the influence of Ghibli captain Hayao Miyazaki is unmistakable, Hosoda's playful mix of intimate truths and expansive wonders shows a generosity of spirit and sweep that's all his own.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Oct 29, 2018
3/5 52% An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn (2018) Plaza occupies Hosking's deadpan surreal world like she's born to it, though Clement banks the biggest laughs with his pathetic bids to impress: his monologue about childhood bowel movements and candy is a hapless delight.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Oct 22, 2018
2/5 30% Venom (2018) Fleischer fails to get a grip here. Wobbling haphazardly between The Mask-style mischief and a more monstrous pitch, he winds up muzzling the film's potential as either an oddball curio or action movie.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Oct 3, 2018
4/5 97% The Rider (2018) Even if Zhao overstates one or two metaphors, she captures Brady's inner struggle with mesmerising authenticity.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
2/5 25% The Nun (2018) The Nun lacks the confidence to let the location and mood speak, let alone whisper for themselves.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
2/5 72% Christopher Robin (2018) Tender, tactile intimacy soon slumps into a set-up more well-visited than Pooh's honey jar.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2018
3/5 46% Generation Wealth (2018) Despite Greenfield's gripping ambition, rich detail and careful structuring, a struggle for focus leads to awkward judgements and ill-placed autobiographical details, neither enough to pull her multiple story strands tight.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2018
2/5 56% Tag (2018) Renner's affectless front and Batman-lite skill-set hint at Tag's core problem: aiming to be grounded and ludicrous simultaneously is a losing strategy.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2018
4/5 84% Deadpool 2 (2018) As with the original, Deadpool 2 thrives on tone over narrative.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
4/5 84% Deadpool 2 (2018) Filthy, ferocious and funny to a near-indecent degree, Deadpool 2 bests its predecessor by doubling down on the gleefully self-aware source comics' idea that anything worth doing is worth overdoing: excess and escalation are, essentially, in its DNA.‐ The List
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
4/5 69% The Cured (2018) Over-ambitious perhaps, but Freyne's intensely executed 'infected' fable packs tension, resonance, and clout.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted May 7, 2018
No Score Yet 51 Degrees North (2014) You learn a bit about asteroids from Grigorij Richters inventive DIY genre-spinner, but like bigger disaster-blasters its human drama lands with a thud.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted May 2, 2018
4/5 88% All American High Revisited (2014) As they look back in wistfulness, a tale of change, American excess and pre-internet teenage innocence becomes almost exotic: to them and to us.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted May 2, 2018
3/5 42% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) DuVernay tackles a difficult adaptation with heart. But her gaudier distractions could have used a bypass or two.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Mar 25, 2018
3/5 51% Tomb Raider (2018) It's good enough to leave you contemplating something rare: the prospect of a video-game movie sequel you wouldn't mind seeing.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2018
2/5 10% Monster Family (2018) Good-looking but erratically plotted and unfunny, director Holger Tappe's adaptation of David Safier's book Happy Family lands with a thud more deadening than the footsteps of Frankenstein's Monster.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Feb 27, 2018
4/5 91% The Nile Hilton Incident (2017) Haggard cops, hotel homicides, endless ciggies... Helmer Tarik Saleh makes 2011 Cairo noir-ish in a stylishly pungent, politically loaded procedural.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Feb 27, 2018
5/5 94% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fant├ística) (2018) Defiant, determined, Vega delivers a star-making performance in a drama of embattled grief, directed with heart.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Feb 26, 2018
5/5 92% The Shape of Water (2017) Del Toro's Valentine to boundary-crossing love pours from the screen in ravishing torrents of feeling and style. And Hawkins is sublime.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2018
2/5 13% Winchester (2018) Themes of guns, guilt and grief mount, setting equally perfect conditions for a resonant mystery. Somehow, though, the Spierigs run low on ideas.‐ The List
