3.5/5 82% Game Night (2018) Even as Game Night piles on the absurdity and really tries your patience with outlandish twists and turns, it never loses pace or fails to keep pranging your funny bone. Worth a roll of the dice.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 99% Lady Bird (2017) Saoirse Ronan turns in her best performance yet in this delightful feel good drama with some very sharp edges.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 25% The 15:17 to Paris (2018) The imminently likeable and gentlemanly [Spencer] Stone is the leader here and he has real screen presence. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2/5 43% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) Fans of the dystopian franchise will find a satisfying conclusion to the whole endeavour but [Dylan] O'Brien as determined rebel leader Thomas is as wooden as ever and Kaya Scodelario, as turncoat rebel Teresa, nearly overdoes him in that regard. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 91% The Disaster Artist (2017) The Disaster Artist will remind of The Producers in places but there is another great movie that it also brings to mind - in Hollywood terms, it is the equivalent of This is Spinal Tap.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 29% Suburbicon (2017) Maybe Clooney and the Coens are trying to make a point about how white privilege blocks out the rights and needs of an embattled part of society. Either way, it's perplexing stuff in an entertaining film that ends up trying a little too hard.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 96% Mudbound (2017) Mudbound finds its pace as a tale of forbidden friendships amid the inhuman social hierarchy of the Jim Crow south, it builds inexorably to a far too believable climax. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 No Score Yet Property of the State (2016) Property of The State does a very good job of telling a terrible human story against a backdrop of institutional incompetence and fear. It is a very Irish tragedy.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 54% Conor McGregor: Notorious (2017) With its slow motion, close-quarters capture of those viscerally violent fights, Notorious makes Raging Bull look like The Champ.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 86% Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami (2017) You'll be transfixed from the opening shot.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

1.5/5 71% Happy Death Day (2017) Unlike the guilty pleasure Final Destination franchise, the recurring death scenes don't even have the decency to be entertainingly ingenious.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) ... a superb action thriller, and a saddening parable about human existence and identity.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 66% Victoria & Abdul (2017) This is a light, enjoyable account of an episode that once again reveals the silliness of the whole royal façade. And who knew that Queen Victoria set the trend for Britain's love of curry?‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 91% A Ghost Story (2017) Brilliantly shot and sound tracked mostly by sombre cello music, this is an aching and muted 92 minutes.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2017
3/5 69% Annabelle: Creation (2017) Careful to follow all the clichés and conventions of the Conjuring franchise, Annabelle Creation ends up overlong and bum-numbingly repetitive.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 89% Maudie (2017) Sally Hawkins gives the performance of her life in this touching portrait of Canadian artist Maud Lewis.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
4/5 51% England Is Mine (2017) The sense of time and place is very well handled and large parts of the film were shot around Morrissey and Gill's native Stretford.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 No Score Yet Revolutions (2016) While McGann's doc is made with all the quick cuts and action of a decent once around the rink, as an involving story Revolutions runs out of track too soon and may well have been a far better 40-minute TV documentary.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 82% Risk (2017) Just like its subject, this is a jarring, non-linear and chaotic documentary.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2017
3.5/5 89% Norman (Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer) (2017) Norman is quietly excellent. It's also another example of how Gere is going through a brilliant third act in his long and distinguished career.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2.5/5 16% The Mummy (2017) The only time that The Mummy does resemble that Boris Karloff original is in the way the plot staggers about in a multi-genre pile-up that perhaps seems over anxious to cover too many bases in one sweeping epic.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 30% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) The whole endeavour skips along at a rate of knots -- however, like too many of its predecessors, Salazar's Revenge runs aground in an overlong and patience-sapping final forty minutes.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted May 24, 2017
2.5/5 49% Going in Style (2017) Going in Style is good-natured, spirited, and heart warming but may leave you wanting a bigger pay-off.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2.5/5 37% Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) It's serviceable and bland.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2017
3/5 67% Life (2017) No more than a extended episode of the Twilight Zone from 1962, Life does have a nasty punch line in store and for that alone, it is smarter than your average sci-fi thriller.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2017
3/5 56% Trespass Against Us (2017) Caught between tradition, suspicion and the reality of modern life, Trespass Against Us makes its point about the shackles and constraints of freedom very well.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2017
2/5 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) It is a brave attempt at making a new kind of Star Wars movie but seems all too eager to express its fealty to the source material without thinking up any ideas of its own.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2016
4/5 70% Bleed For This (2016) It's a bruiser alright and whether you're already familiar with this remarkable sporting fable turned fact or not, Bleed For This delivers a real knockout emotional blow.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 92% I Am Not a Serial Killer (2016) A weird little morsel with a lingering aftertaste.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2016
3.5/5 84% A United Kingdom (2017) Worthiness doesn't get in the way of a great yarn and Asante, who shot the movie in the original locations where these events took place, tells the story with a well-judged mix of humour, giddy love, and painful reality.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 59% Allied (2016) Allied is entertaining in places. With a bit more grime on the lens and a less hammy male lead, it could have been a very worthy war movie.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Nov 23, 2016
3/5 95% Gimme Danger (2016) The Stooges story has been told before and you can still hear the mighty roar of bug-eyed defiance on their three key albums but Jarmusch reckons it's time to revisit this tale of drugs, burn-out, more drugs, and peanut butter all over again.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2016
2/5 82% Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016) A sappy subplot involving teenage daughter Paulina and her prom date is just a cliché too far in a movie that makes rather too much of its references to The Exorcist, Poltergeist and Carrie.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 83% Oasis: Supersonic (2016) Looking back in languor, Noel is jaundiced, wistful and very funny. Almost shockingly, Liam comes across as wise, hilarious, and articulate but everything he says is tinged with sadness.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 79% American Honey (2016) It wears its nihilism on its tie-dye sleeve but it also has the beauty and power of a Terence Malick epic.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 No Score Yet Mattress Men (2016) Mattress Men will put a spring in your step.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Oct 7, 2016
3/5 84% The Girl With All the Gifts (2017) What starts out as a very effective and disturbing little thriller ends in a face palm of a third act that nearly negates all the excellent work of the first hour.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2.5/5 61% David Brent: Life on the Road (2017) While I could watch endless returns of Steve Coogan's Alan Partridge, the return of David Brent ends up running out of road.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2016
4/5 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) In what could be the most Coen Brothers movie ever, the masters of bone dry irony and quirk line up an all-star cast to pay homage to an era of Hollywood when actors were indeed cattle and movies dripped with glamour and the promise of escape. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2/5 31% Dad's Army (2016) A noble effort that ends up more Dunkirk than D-Day.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2016
3.5/5 79% Where to Invade Next (2016) If Where to Invade Next isn't exactly forensic it is funny and thought-provoking.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2016
3.5/5 23% Zoolander 2 (2016) It's a retro retread that royally sends up the vulgarity and vanity of it all but Derek Zoolander, well, he'll never go out of fashion.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2016
69% 11 Minutes (11 Minut) (2016) Some people might think this is a brave piece of film making from a true maverick; others will see it as 11 minutes of their lives (repeated over and over from different viewpoints) they'll never get back.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2016
3/5 91% Bridge of Spies (2015) Bridge of Spies is never less than brilliantly made, tense and with a satisfyingly twisty plot but Spielberg's recurring late period theme of honest men doing their best in a wicked world is just a little over-baked.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2016
3.5/5 74% Miles Ahead (2016) Miles Ahead is impressionistic, mercurial and wild. The only quibble is that it perhaps misses out on the mystery of the man.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2016
2.5/5 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) This is certainly more of the same; it's just not very more-ish.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2016
3/5 72% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) It's the human factor that lets things down and McGregor and Harris are never quite convincing.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2016
2.5/5 75% Mammal (2015) The story is ponderous, the scenes of violence that shatter the downbeat mood are largely unconvincing, and the film's detached questioning of human behaviour fails to engage emotionally as the film wanders to an unsatisfactory end.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2016
5/5 80% The Revenant (2015) The Revenant is epic, atmospheric and visceral. It is also a great old-fashioned yarn.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2016
3.5/5 84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) Following the ponderous and leaden Star Trek Into Darkness, Fast and Furious director Justin Lin puts real zip back into the space-going franchise.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
