Posted Mar 14, 2020
52% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) On the surface, it's all there: the showdowns, the space battles, the historic characters taking a final bow... Yet it's hollow.‐ CNET

Read More | Posted Dec 10, 2019
97% Knives Out (2019) A good old-fashioned whodunnit that both celebrates and sends up the genre, but its biggest strength is an all-star cast taking its best stab at the blade-sharp dialogue.‐ CNET

96% The Irishman (2019) A layered exploration of the passage of time and the roles small men play in the big moments of history. But the digital de-aging thing ... I dunno guys.‐ CNET

72% The Aeronauts (2019) As a free-floating celebration of human aspiration, The Aeronauts is a life-affirming journey to understand and appreciate the world we live in. And that's not just hot air.‐ CNET

Posted Oct 7, 2019
68% Joker (2019) Joker is intense and unnerving and a radical entry into the superhero genre, but come on, Taxi Driver was 40 years ago.‐ CNET

75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) With its vast cast, ever-accelerating action and cameos from the wider Marvel world, it has to keep doubling down on spectacle as it races to its epic conclusion.‐ CNET

Read More | Posted Apr 16, 2019
67% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) The story, such as it is, is entirely secondary to the parade of stylish outfits and equally stylish action set-pieces.‐ CNET
Read More | Posted Apr 16, 2019
93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) A little bit Bond, a little bit Bourne, but always comfortably cruising in its own high gear, Rogue Nation is full of old-fashioned fun and thoroughly modern thrills.‐ CNET

Read More | Posted Apr 16, 2019
56% Man of Steel (2013) The scenes between Russell Crowe's Jor-El and Michael Shannon's glassy-eyed Zod crackle with tension and drama that the scenes with Henry Cavill's Superman just can't match.‐ CNET

28% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Wondering how to teach your offspring that the world is a horrifying, random, awful place? Let director Zack Snyder take care of that for you.‐ CNET

16% The Mummy (2017) As always, Cruise is right in the thick of the stunt action, throwing himself round all manner of exploding buildings and crashing vehicles.‐ CNET
