4/5 74% Smallfoot (2018) Smallfoot effectively weaves powerful messages into a fun, heart-warming animation that is sure to appeal to audiences both young and old.‐ Empire Magazine

3/5 82% Anchor and Hope (2017) With its predictable story unlikely to leave a lasting impression, it's left to Chaplin and Tena's natural chemistry and performances to make Carlos Marques-Marcet's second feature-length film worth your while.‐ Empire Magazine

2/5 26% The Nun (2018) The Nun, which has proudly been calling itself 'the darkest chapter' in the series in the run-up to its release, winds up being the dullest instead.‐ SciFiNow

2/5 17% The Darkest Minds (2018) The Darkest Minds boasts a decent cast and a fairly interesting premise centred on likeable characters. But its banality squashes any potential it had, resulting in a safe, forgettable sci-fi.‐ Empire Magazine

2/5 14% Damascus Cover (2018) Setting and performances aside, Damascus Cover is a forgettable spy thriller that bulldozes over its real-life relevance in favour of shoehorned romance and hackneyed characters.‐ Empire Magazine

3/5 59% Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation has enough going for it that little ones -- and perhaps even some big ones -- are still likely to be entertained. ‐ SciFiNow

3/5 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) It may not be as polished as its predecessor, but Incredibles 2 is action-packed and joyful enough to please fans already connected to these characters. ‐ SciFiNow

2/5 38% The Strangers: Prey At Night (2018) With its infuriatingly dim-witted characters and generic slasher movie feel, The Strangers: Prey At Night is a surprisingly tame and forgettable rehash.‐ Empire Magazine

3/5 No Score Yet The Director and the Jedi (2018) Just like Star Wars: The Last Jedi, this documentary wears its heart on its sleeve and while it could have delved deeper, it's likely to put a smile on your face.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 83% Game Night (2018) With its clever, whip-smart script and enthusiastic ensemble cast firing on all cylinders, crime comedy filmmakers Jonathan Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein score big with Game Night.‐ Empire Magazine

2/5 11% The Open House (2018) Movies don't always have to spell everything out, but here it's far too vague and therefore fails to encourage any sort of emotional connection towards its characters or add intrigue. ‐ SciFiNow

2/5 17% Baywatch (2017) Try as it might to have heart, the film still ends up being little more than an unrelenting invitation for cinemagoers to ogle.‐ International Business Times

2.5/5 66% Alien: Covenant (2017) There's a serious lack of dread throughout. Xenomorph pops out, someone dies instantly, repeat; it all happens so fast, you barely sense the fear.‐ International Business Times

4/5 91% Mindhorn (2016) If you've not chuckled by the film's final act, just know that you are humourless.‐ International Business Times

3/5 90% Their Finest (2017) Their Finest may not be a particularly thrilling roller coaster, but its continual shifts between being brilliantly funny, progressive and poignant and downright tragic mean that you are constantly kept on your toes.‐ International Business Times

3.5/5 43% Ghost in the Shell (2017) Ghost in the Shell is visually gorgeous, as it conjures up a futuristic world resembling outings such as The Matrix and Blade Runner.‐ International Business Times

3/5 79% Personal Shopper (2017) The problem is that it's hard to really build spine-tingling suspense when you figure out pretty early on that this is a story that isn't really going to go anywhere.‐ International Business Times

4/5 99% Get Out (2017) This isn't some inside joke, it's a universal lesson learnt... even if that lesson is expertly disguised by a brilliantly bizarre and truly bonkers story set in the 'burbs.‐ International Business Times

3/5 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) Musical lovers are sure to be thinking about it for hours afterwards and any Disney fan that has seen the trailers and is eagerly awaiting its release will certainly not be disappointed as it maintains that Gothic fairy-tale feel.‐ International Business Times

3/5 72% Viceroy's House (2017) With its poignant themes and unquestionably powerful story, it's a wonder why in its final moments, Viceroy's House never quite reaches the memorable or moving heights that it should have.‐ International Business Times

3.5/5 81% Patriots Day (2017) Throughout, Patriots Day does walk the line between moving historical account of a real-life tragedy and hokey soap opera. Fortunately, it manages to be much more of the former than the latter.‐ International Business Times

4/5 89% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) While it may not be quite as slick and polished as the first instalment and its occasionally over-the-top gags will not sit well with some, John Wick: Chapter 2 knows what fans want and it undoubtedly delivers.‐ International Business Times

3.5/5 93% Hidden Figures (2017) It's helpful that the acting trio sell the somewhat saccharine story well.‐ International Business Times

4/5 86% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) While a biopic doesn't usually include such direct nods to the people that it centres on, here, it makes all that you've just watched appear so much more powerful and moving and will have you thinking about it for days after you've seen it.‐ International Business Times

4/5 93% Queen of Katwe (2016) What could have so easily been turned into a sickly-sweet, coming-of-age story actually ends up being a realistic and warm celebration of family, faith and having a sense of purpose that will leave you feeling both moved.‐ International Business Times
