3/5 64% The Man Who Killed Don Quixote (2019) Terry Gilliam's long-plagued dream project finally hits the big screen after a 25-year wait, but his ambitious tale feels like it's passed its sell by date.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 70% Bombshell (2019) Bombshell fails to dig deep enough to create an explosive piece of cinema, but it ticks along just enough to make an impact.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 84% Ad Astra (2019) The ambitious script reaches far beyond most Hollywood sci-fi movies, striking a balance between a harrowing otherworldly discovery, and a beautifully complex narrative weighing up how much our parents shape our destiny.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 73% The Angry Birds Movie 2 (2019) Kids will no doubt find the birds' amusing hijinks to be im-peck-ably funny.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 55% Ma (2019) Ma doesn't reinvent the wheel when it comes to teen slasher flicks but it derives a decent amount of mileage out of its revenge-horror premise.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2/5 14% The Hustle (2019) Chris Addison's directorial debut is a gratingly vapid and clunky misfire of seen-it-before set-ups that never settles on whether it's a parody or a homage.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 81% Long Shot (2019) Jonathan Levine's raunchy political satire is a giddy symphony of outrageously wicked gags and scabrous laughs.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2.5/5 47% Dumbo (2019) Tim Burton's live action take on Disney's 1941 animated classic struggles to get off the ground. In fact, it struggles to find the elephant in the room.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 82% Ben is Back (2018) Ben is Back injects a good deal of heart, but the half-baked script becomes all style and no substance. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 73% On the Basis of Sex (2019) On the Basis of Sex has buckets of appeal but when it comes to underselling the great RBG's legacy, the movie is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 79% Halloween (2018) Halloween is the perfect companion piece to John Carpenter's 1978 classic, with a boundary-pushing script offering fans something truly cutting.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 48% Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween (2018) Goosebumps 2 is far from being a Halloween classic, but it's the perfect tween brew. Adults may need a brew of a different kind once the movie is over.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 72% The Apparition (L'apparition) (2018) The Apparition is a fantastic piece of craftsmanship, benefiting from excellent performances, but instead of standing on the alter as a powerful examination of religion and faith, it becomes a humdrum whodunnit hiding among the pews.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 55% The First Purge (2018) The First Purge gives viewers food for thought on modern-day politics, but the deliciously disturbing mayhem will leave you hungry for more scares. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 67% Dublin Oldschool (2018) On a purely visceral level, Dublin Oldschool is easily the most intoxicating movie out there right now, but as a drama, it isn't as effective.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 95% The Breadwinner (2017) The Breadwinner has all of the right ingredients to be examined in depth by schools in Ireland, and hopefully, one day, by every child around the world.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 27% Sherlock Gnomes (2018) While the movie shines at times - it's colourful, beautifully animated and sufficiently fun -the meandering subplots and sporadically funny, pun-fueled dialogue means the mystery quickly wears thin.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 51% Rampage (2018) Rampage's recycled plot prevents the action flick from skipping to the next level but its jaw-dropping giant monster sequences press all of the right buttons.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 45% The Hurricane Heist (2018) Yes, it's a tidal wave of cheesy dialogue, overcooked special effects, preposterous plots, and cardboard cut-out villains, but it's a breeze to watch.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2/5 68% Wonderstruck (2017) It tries to be an intellectual puzzle, but ends up being a self-indulgent humdrum mystery, that forgets to connect the dots.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 83% Ghost Stories (2018) Ghost Stories offers a thought-provoking and disorientating series of unsettling ideas that delivers more goosebumps than gasps.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

1/5 22% Midnight Sun (2018) Midnight Sun is an overwrought and contrived weepy teen dramedy that becomes cumbersome and cliché-ridden within the first ten minutes.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

1/5 8% Walk Like a Panther (2018) Walk Like a Panther is The Full Monty meets pro wrestling, but this time with leotards, '80s bangers, and a script that's not hot stuff.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 92% The Shape of Water (2017) Guillermo del Toro's wildly imaginative adult fairytale is an opulently entertaining monster fable that is spectacularly stylised and perversely enchanting.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 92% Phantom Thread (2018) Daniel Day Lewis' swan song is a wonderfully delirious and bewitching masterpiece.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2/5 16% Geostorm (2017) Instead of trying to raise the movie barometer, Geostorm becomes a generic by-the-numbers calamity that mirrors many of the clichés from Roland Emmerich's disaster flicks‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 95% It's Not Yet Dark (2017) The prose, which is movingly narrated by Colin Farrell, is remarkably powerful and explores the reality of living with a debilitating disease with both candour and hope.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 70% Cars 3 (2017) Cars 2 clocked up penalty points from critics after 2011's poorly received outing. Luckily, Pixar's third chapter in the franchise has just enough fuel to stay in the race.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2/5 18% Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017) Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul will be numbing for adults to sit through. Perhaps a straight-to-YouTube release would have been a win-win situation for you and your little one.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 91% Elle (2016) Elle is a wildly unpredictable thriller that dances between being an unflinchingly absurd, sadistically sensationalised and exploitative satire.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 80% Patriots Day (2017) The subject matter could have easily been mishandled but it is un-waveringly respectful to the victims and the heroes of that fateful day.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
