4/5 69% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) If you were a fan of the first film, then the sequel delivers everything you could possibly hope for, thanks to terrific gags, exciting zombie moments and off-the-scale comic chemistry between the four leads.‐ Hero Collector

1/5 27% Rambo: Last Blood (2019) The horrific finale makes Rambo himself seem like the real monster, making you briefly wonder if Stallone is aware of the irony. On balance, one suspects not.‐ The List

3/5 68% Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion (Astérix - Le secret de la potion magique) (2018) The film is packed with great visual gags (there's a remarkably high hit-rate in that regard) and it stays largely true to the spirit of the books, give or take a talking boar or two.‐ The List

2.5/5 56% The Dead Don't Die (2019) The deadpan performances and laid-back aesthetic are just as Jarmuschian as you might hope, but the writing feels lazy and the film lacks the necessary bite. ‐ Hero Collector
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2019
4/5 83% Midsommar (2019) A deeply disturbing and powerfully atmospheric slice of horror that laces its ever-sickening sense of dread with a jet-black streak of humour.‐ Hero Collector

4/5 67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) A big, bold action movie that's as entertaining as it is ridiculous.‐ Nerdly
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2019
5/5 85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) An elegiac, beautifully made and surprisingly moving tribute to 1960s Hollywood that is sure to reward multiple viewings. ‐ Hero Collector

4/5 71% Gwen (2019) An arresting and memorable first feature that marks out McGregor as a talent to watch.‐ Nerdly

2/5 0% Balance, Not Symmetry (2019) Devotees of the Scottish rockers will certainly get their money's worth in songs, but the film's failure to connect on an emotional or dramatic level is likely to leave everyone else cold.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Jul 29, 2019
3/5 77% Nightmare Cinema (2019) The stories themselves have a surprisingly high hit rate, but the film is let down by its poorly thought-out linking concept. ‐ Nerdly

3/5 64% Annabelle Comes Home (2019) Performances are strong and jump-scares efficient in this shallow but polished horror spin-off.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2019
2/5 36% Anna (2019) If Besson's flair for a spot of stylishly-clad ass-kicking ensures Anna remains watchable, there's nothing here you haven't seen before; the lack of wit and emotion, meanwhile, means it's never as much fun as it should have been.‐ The List

5/5 99% Apollo 11 (2019) An awe-inspiring film that does full justice to the extraordinary technical achievement of the moon mission. ‐ Hero Collector

2.5/5 30% Holy Lands (Les terres saintes) (2018) An unlikely double act of James Caan and Tom Hollander is the main reason to see this stodgy drama.‐ VODzilla.co

2/5 37% Glass (2019) As a conclusion to the trilogy, it's as frustrating as it is satisfying.‐ Hero Collector

3/5 61% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) The film's biggest achievement is the way it makes Alita feel completely real, despite her enormous eyes and robo-limbs.‐ Hero Collector

5/5 82% What Keeps You Alive (2018) Taut, thrilling and packed with delicious twists and turns, this is a terrific indie horror that marks out Minihan as a serious talent to watch.‐ Hero Collector

3/5 50% Escape Room (2019) There's enough here to suggest that a sequel would not be entirely unwelcome. More Escape Rooms, please.‐ Hero Collector

3/5 85% The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) Pretty decent, as sequels go, and devotees of the first film (ages 4 to 45+) are unlikely to be disappointed.‐ Hero Collector

2/5 89% The Kid Who Would Be King (2019) [This] should play well with very young audience members, but dragged-along adults are likely to be disappointed.‐ Hero Collector

2.5/5 50% The Outsider (2019) The Outsider does enough to satisfy the basic demands of the genre and is never less than watchable, but it ultimately promises more than it delivers.‐ VODzilla.co

3/5 41% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Godzilla: King of the Monsters has plenty of flaws, but it delivers where it counts, thanks to stunning creature designs and spectacular fight sequences.‐ Hero Collector
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2019
2/5 23% Men in Black International (2019) Perhaps the biggest disappointment is that the expected magic just isn't there between Hemsworth and Thompson, largely because the script gives them nothing to work with.‐ Hero Collector
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2019
3.5/5 23% Dark Phoenix (2019) [This] feels like a fitting end to the X-Men saga, delivering both exciting action sequences and powerful emotion that's strongly rooted in character.‐ Hero Collector

1/5 54% Ma (2019) Ma simply doesn't deliver anything approaching actual scares or tension.‐ The List

4/5 53% Destination Wedding (2018) If you're willing to tune into the film's wavelength, this is the perfect romcom for people who don't like romcoms, and, indeed, anyone who's ever been single at a wedding.‐ The List

3/5 51% Tolkien (2019) Tolkien takes a traditional, by-the-numbers approach (an 'Expected Journey', if you will) - yet succeeds well enough on its own terms, thanks to a likeable cast.‐ The List

5/5 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) Just about the best send-off imaginable, a stunning achievement in blockbuster cinema and a satisfying resolution to a phenomenal run of films.‐ Hero Collector

3/5 44% The Girl on the Train (2016) This is a faithful adaptation enlivened by strong performances from Blunt and Bennett, though it does rather confirm the suspicion that maybe the book wasn't all that great in the first place.‐ WOW247
Read More | Posted Apr 22, 2019
4/5 80% American Honey (2016) Arnold ensures that each of these sequences crackles with tension, though one of the film's strengths is that the scenes never play out quite the way you expect.‐ WOW247
Read More | Posted Apr 22, 2019
2/5 23% Inferno (2016) It's entirely watchable, providing you don't make the mistake of actually thinking about it.‐ WOW247
Read More | Posted Apr 22, 2019
4/5 60% Greta (2019) Director Neil Jordan evidently has a nostalgic hankering for the Fill-in-the-blank From Hell genre, because Greta is a delightful throwback that pushes all the right buttons.‐ Hero Collector
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2019
3/5 67% Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich (2018) This riotously bad taste comedy horror delivers about as much gory fun as you could hope for from a film about Nazi puppets on a murder spree.‐ The List

3/5 57% Pet Sematary (2019) Unlikely to give you nightmares, unless you have a cat who seems a little grumpier than usual.‐ Hero Collector
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2019
2/5 17% Hellboy (2019) It occasionally feels as if Daniel Dae Kim, Sasha Lane and Milla Jovovich had a secret competition to see who could get away with the worst British accent. ‐ Hero Collector

5/10 50% America Adrift (2016) While Lopez's direction and structural approach are sound, the film flounders in other areas [and] it lacks the investment necessary to connect on an emotional level.‐ VODzilla.co
