7.5/10 52% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Not the roaring, perfect send-off we had hoped for but it's still a fun, sometimes exhilarating, adventure and helps to remind us why Star Wars will live on.‐ What I Watched Tonight

10/10 96% The Irishman (2019) The runtime is irrelevant as The Irishman is that good - Scorsese has delivered a real marvel of a movie.‐ What I Watched Tonight

10/10 97% Knives Out (2019) Knives Out is clever, packed with smart twists and turns and is a dose of devilish fun. Whodunit? Rian Johnson, that's who.‐ What I Watched Tonight

9/10 91% Hush (2016) Packed full of suspense and atmosphere, Hush provides a great thriller/horror experience that starts fast and never lets up until the end. ‐ What I Watched Tonight

8.5/10 69% Joker (2019) Whilst the movie lacks depth somewhat, it's undeniably haunting and unnerving - Phoenix is monstrously good in the titular role.‐ What I Watched Tonight

6/10 84% Downton Abbey (2019) For those new to the Abbey, there's not an awful lot to be excited by but whilst the movie is just fine, visually, it's a joy to behold.‐ What I Watched Tonight

3/10 27% Rambo: Last Blood (2019) Surely perceived as a saviour for the franchise and a golden way to wrap things up - however, it's really not that good...at all.‐ What I Watched Tonight

9/10 84% Ad Astra (2019) Heavy on emotion and utterly engrossing. Brad Pitt gives one of his best performances in what is one of the best movies of the year.‐ What I Watched Tonight

7.5/10 62% Paradise Hills (2019) Whilst it never blew me away fully, there was plenty to admire and enjoy about this.‐ What I Watched Tonight

3/10 43% 47 Meters Down: Uncaged (2019) There's nothing here that justifies the need for this sequel and it's lackluster across the board.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2019
3.5/10 23% The Kitchen (2019) The Kitchen is grim, drab and utterly forgettable. The poster is cool though...‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2019
6.5/10 63% It Chapter Two (2019) Too indulgent and messy at times which is a huge shame. There are some great moments and maybe it was the anticipation, but It Chapter Two was sadly disappointing.‐ What I Watched Tonight

8/10 89% Blinded by the Light (2019) Whilst it doesn't always hit the high notes, there's a joyfulness that permeates the movie and delivers a winning feeling.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2019
8/10 88% Ready or Not (2019) An entertaining, bloody and, at times, tense horror thriller with an excellent lead showing from Weaving.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2019
6/10 78% Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) A great premise which is frustratingly underutilised, Scary Stories isn't really a great scary story - it's just pretty good.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2019
6.5/10 84% Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019) It's formulaic, it's firmly rooted in its PG surroundings but, happily, it isn't all that bad. It's good, clean fun.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2019
8/10 83% Midsommar (2019) Strap in for a cruel, slow ride and you'll be thinking about Midsommar long after the credits roll.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2019
6/10 80% Good Boys (2019) If you like the same gags recycled throughout the same movie, you're going to enjoy Good Boys - not bad, not great, it's just fine.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2019
6.5/10 67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) You'll be able to smell the sweat and manliness dripping through the screen and whilst this is a pretty naff movie, it's still carries plenty of fun and decent action.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2019
8/10 85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) Tarantino's ode to the Hollywood of old scores big for the majority of its overly long runtime.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2019
7.5/10 53% The Lion King (2019) It's The Lion King - it'll never not be good. The story is quality and it's visually stunning but the heart that fuelled the 1994 version is sorely missing here.‐ What I Watched Tonight

2/10 31% Shaft (2019) The messages are bad and the movie is bad. It's plain and clear why the studio dumped this on Netflix internationally.‐ What I Watched Tonight

2/10 36% Anna (2019) Whatever Besson was striving for with Anna, he really didn't achieve it.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2019
8/10 83% Crawl (2019) A gritty, snappy yet fun movie that pulsates with atmosphere and has a dedicated performance from Scodelario at its core.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2019
7.5/10 60% Ophelia (2019) It's a very decent story that may be the most beautiful looking movie I've seen this year.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2019
6/10 63% Yesterday (2019) It's Patel that saves the entire movie with a spirited performance but there's an unshakable feeling that Yesterday could have delivered more on its central premise.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2019
6.5/10 55% The Dead Don't Die (2019) It's just OK. It's enjoyable enough but the constant winking at the camera is ultimately a hindrance to the movie.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2019
8/10 91% Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) It's fun, it's light, it's just right for summer and has all the ingredients for a great Spidey movie.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2019
5/10 55% Ma (2019) Without Spencer's stabilising efforts, Ma would have been a total write-off. Instead, it's just OK.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2019
4/10 57% Brightburn (2019) Cheap jump scares and uninspired writing combined with a limp story ensure Brightburn will remain a big 'what if?'‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2019
9.5/10 97% Booksmart (2019) Booksmart isn't just wonderful, it's a proudly fierce, fun and feminist hurricane.‐ What I Watched Tonight

9.5/10 97% Toy Story 4 (2019) This may just be the best of the bunch, so get your tissues ready to join the gang one last time.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2019
7/10 63% Child's Play (2019) A decent reboot that may lack scares but is big on fun (yes, fun)‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2019
3/10 14% The Hustle (2019) Clichéd, bland and a slog.‐ What I Watched Tonight

6.5/10 69% Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) In terms of converting movie fans, Detective Pikachu isn't gonna catch 'em all.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Jun 18, 2019
2/10 23% Men in Black International (2019) Forget the MIB of old, Men in Black: International is soulless, hollow and depressingly uninteresting.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Jun 18, 2019
8/10 73% The Perfection (2019) The Perfection stands as a very good modern thriller that's bloody, OTT, weird, twisty and, whilst also fairly flawed, it's well worth your time.‐ What I Watched Tonight

2/10 23% Dark Phoenix (2019) Disjointed, messy and flat out bad - and not just Sophie Turner's accent - Dark Phoenix is a miserable end to the X-Men saga as we know it.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2019
3/10 42% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Bigger isn't always better and that's absolutely the case with this monstrous disappointment.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2019
7.5/10 90% John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019) Soaked in blood and bullets, Parabellum manages to bring the goodies but just not as successfully as the previous John Wick offerings.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2019
7.5/10 57% Aladdin (2019) Surprisingly very decent with three good leads and some lovely visuals. It's just a shame the editing hadn't been more ruthless and the new songs weren't more memorable.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted May 27, 2019
6.5/10 81% Long Shot (2019) At the end of the day, Long Shot exists to be a crowd-pleaser, a heart-warmer. Though it falls away, the good does outweigh the bad but, honestly, not by a long shot.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted May 10, 2019
5/10 50% Tolkien (2019) Truth be told for a movie about J.R.R. Tolkien, there's a real lack of magic and wonder - very much unlike his body of work.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted May 9, 2019
9/10 55% Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) Less bloody than some and more interesting than most, Efron delivers a career-best performance in what is a very good movie.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted May 9, 2019
2/10 17% Hellboy (2019) Hellboy? More like OH BOY! As in, OH BOY THIS MOVIE IS AWFUL.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted May 8, 2019
8.5/10 90% Shazam! (2019) Get rid of the brash and broody DC and deliver movies like Shazam! more often. This is what superhero movies should be like - very good and unashamedly fun.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted May 7, 2019
5/10 29% The Curse of La Llorona (2019) Despite having a promising premise, The Curse of La Llorona falls foul of formula and ends up being utterly mediocre - it's frightfully uninteresting.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2019
7.5/10 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) Not as visceral or intense as Infinity War - and not entirely satisfying - but there's still plenty to get excited about.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2019
8.5/10 100% Ekaj (2015) Bold, strong, heavy, gritty, raw, and for the majority of its runtime, an excellent slice of grim realism. Surreal yet sincere, and well worth a watch.‐ What I Watched Tonight
