4/5 77% All the Money in the World (2017) It was an expensive gamble but it has paid off handsomely. [Christopher] Plummer is the best thing in the film.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 81% Molly's Game (2018) As Sorkin's loquacious heroine engaged in rapid-fire exchanges with her whip-smart lawyer (Idris Elba), I could almost hear the clickety clack of the writer's keyboard. ‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 54% The Greatest Showman (2017) This may be nonsense but it's well-meaning and, most importantly, entertaining nonsense. ‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 80% Brigsby Bear (2017) This isn't the first quirky indie film to extol the virtues of quirky indie-film-making but it manages to be sweet, surprising and consistently amusing.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 91% The Disaster Artist (2017) This is a film with heart as well as humour.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 80% The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) The film's best sections involve Plummer, who on this evidence would make a great Scrooge in the 20th straight adaptation of the novella. They should have bitten the bullet and made that instead.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 85% Wonder (2017) It's kind, but it doesn't feel quite right.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 86% Battle of the Sexes (2017) The film may borrow the name from the much-hyped match, but Little Miss Sunshine directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris know far more interesting conflicts were playing out off the court.‐ Daily Express (UK)

1/5 28% Suburbicon (2017) The characters are dull and defiantly unlikeable, the acting is wooden, the score is overbearing and its point is elusive.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 19% Daddy's Home 2 (2017) Lithgow and Ferrell deliver a smattering of laughs, but they come with a very bitter aftertaste.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 40% Justice League (2017) After the excellent Wonder Woman, DC plays it safe with a very familiar debut mission for their superhero tag team.‐ Daily Star

5/5 100% Paddington 2 (2018) It's as unlikely and as charming as a talking bear... a cute family film topping my list of the best films of the year.‐ Daily Express (UK)

5/5 96% The Florida Project (2017) This beautifully shot, smartly-written and wonderfully-cast drama is grim and joyful in equal measures.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 88% Only the Brave (2017) It's well-meaning but a more exciting movie might have been a better tribute.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 12, 2017
3/5 77% The Son of Bigfoot (2017) The dialogue could be wittier but the scary scenes are short-lived, the pace is brisk and the message is big-hearted.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) Branagh has given a familiar tale some extra bite.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 7% The Snowman (2017) Despite Fassbender's best efforts, we don't see inside the hero's head.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 54% The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017) The Lego Ninjago Movie could be the funniest film of 2017.‐ Daily Express (UK)

72% The Ritual (2017) Witty dialogue, likeable performances, creepy atmosphere and an unusual set-up.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 72% The Ritual (2017) Bruckner summons up some nightmarish images before letting loose with a gleefully over-the-top finale.‐ Daily Star

5/5 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Not quite a classic, but this smart and visually stunning sequel will still be poured over by fans for years to come. If this was a poisoned chalice, Villeneuve has grabbed it with both hands.‐ Daily Star

4/5 64% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) This moving and eye-opening biopic reveals life was no picnic for the creators of "the bear of very little brain".‐ Daily Star

3/5 93% My Pure Land (2017) It looks like Masud is going to be one hell of a player.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 69% mother! (2017) If I'd seen this unhinged, art-house horror on TV I would have probably turned it off after the preposterous opening half an hour. But by the end it had completely won me over.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 66% Victoria & Abdul (2017) As this is such an interesting true story (or a "mostly" true story as an opening caption reveals), this feels like a cop-out. At times, I was convinced I could see the ghost of a grittier early draft.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 87% Wind River (2017) The film offers lots more than twists and red herrings. The dialogue is beautifully underwritten, the soundtrack is moody, cinematography stunning and the casting is faultless.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 85% It (2017) Muschietti serves up yet another tale of a group of misfit BMX kids riding around a small town America trying to solve a mystery.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 29% The Vault (2017) This is all great fun and as the heist begins the robbers are revealed to be a charismatic bunch with a very interesting dynamic.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 74% The Limehouse Golem (2017) Engaging but overstuffed ...‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 0% Stratton (2018) A bit dull.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 75% Una (2017) Mara's English accent can be distracting, but we can feel a maelstrom of emotions raging inside this troubled young woman.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 84% Detroit (2017) It feels like an opportunity wasted.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 87% American Made (2017) For once that Colgate white smile doesn't cut it. Cruise's star wattage doesn't illuminate the story, it blinds us to its complexities.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 16% The Dark Tower (2017) It's not the worst Stephen King movie but it is one of the most forgettable. The writer's wild imagination has been flattened for a quick shot at a family hit.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2017
1/5 40% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) This might have been enough for a great double act but Reynolds and Jackson don't have a molecule of the chemistry of Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 61% The Odyssey (L'odyssée) (2016) Thankfully, the underwater scenes are beautifully shot - a sequence where cocky Philippe is surrounded by killer sharks is almost worth the price of admission alone.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 78% Final Portrait (2018) Rush has never been better. It's a small film built around a very big performance.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 91% A Ghost Story (2017) After a while, the things that irritated me about the film - the long takes, the boxy frame, the ironic costume - began to hit home.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 69% Annabelle: Creation (2017) The dialogue is naff and the plot is predictable but director David F Sandberg delivers the jump scares with ruthless efficiency.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 77% Atomic Blonde (2017) This lean, mean, fighting machine is lost in a very flabby plot.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2017
2/5 49% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) It's a film of a thousand mistakes and Besson's arrogant decision to write his own script is the biggest of them all. ‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Jul 30, 2017
4/5 99% City of Ghosts (2017) The footage is chilling and the heroism of these traumatised but determined young men is unquestionable.‐ Daily Express (UK)

5/5 92% Dunkirk (2017) This astonishing film demands to be watched on the biggest screen available.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 86% Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (Captain Underpants) (2017) It's not a classic DreamWorks film but there's enough here to keep little ones laughing and parents from nodding off.‐ Daily Express (UK)

5/5 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) Few summer blockbusters make the brain tick and the heart race at the same time. Is is too early too call this the blockbuster of the summer?‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 68% Cars 3 (2017) The tills in the Disney Stores should keep ringing ... thanks to a string of slick and moderately exciting racing scenes.‐ Daily Express (UK)
