3/5 79% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) Honestly, for all its absurdities and cue-up-another-song sub-plots it is the mother-daughter love story that touches the heart, and the film's joyful esprit de corps really is irresistible.‐ The List

3/5 82% That Summer (2018) For those fascinated by the Maysles brothers' classic 1975 documentary Grey Gardens, a portrait of the eccentric, impoverished socialites Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edie, this is a Beale-apalooza.‐ The List

4/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) What is most satisfying here is not just the effective frights that unpredictably punctuate the family's existence, but the empathy that builds up with them and how moved we are by their plight.‐ The List

3/5 71% The Mercy (2017) The supporting cast and period detail are fine, but essentially this is Firth's film and he does brave, moving work as the disheartened dreamer spiralling down into despair and madness.‐ The List

2/5 0% Lies We Tell (2018) All these assets are swamped by a weak, increasingly melodramatic storyline littered with horrible stereotypes and preposterous villainy.‐ The List

4/5 56% The Greatest Showman (2017) Jackman has the charisma, charm and cheek that Barnum must have possessed in some measure. He has a twinkle that keeps you sympathising with him even when he's being a deeply flawed, social climbing, straying hero.‐ The List

5/5 100% Paddington 2 (2018) It's terribly sad that Paddington's creator Michael Bond - to whom the film is dedicated - died in June without seeing how absolutely wonderfully his legacy has been continued.‐ The List

2/5 45% Last Vegas (2013) ... they can't make a silk purse out of the sow's ear that is this formulaic bachelor party/bucket list buddy comedy.‐ Metro (UK)

2/5 24% Plunkett & Macleane (1999) There are some spirited moments, but this is mostly a chaotic jumble of style over substance.‐ Radio Times

4/5 67% Paris Blues (1961) Ageing like a fine wine - even with its vintage "Ya dig, baby?" lingo - this offbeat affair from one of Newman's drama teachers and favourite directors, Martin Ritt, is also one of the most delightful jazz movies ever made.‐ Radio Times

4/5 68% Shaft (2000) Samuel L Jackson, very cool in a wardrobe designed by Armani, has the necessary presence to carry off this slick homage to the icon of 1970s blaxploitation from director John Singleton. ‐ Radio Times

4/5 95% Enough Said (2013) What's sweet and funny is the observation of insecure people fumbling their way in a new relationship.‐ Metro (UK)

3/5 65% Days of Grace (2015) The rapid-fire editing and an interesting musical score make you so dizzy it's very hard at times to follow who is doing what to whom and when. Still, there are nifty twists in the histrionic, compelling storytelling.‐ Metro (UK)

3/5 85% The Way Way Back (2013) What Faxon and Rash get right is snappy dialogue for [Sam] Rockwell, who aces this, and hilariously inappropriate monologues for Allison Janney, priceless as the blowsy, boozy next-door neighbour. Those two bag this an extra star.‐ Metro (UK)

1/5 7% Justin and the Knights of Valour (2013) The plot is as boring as it is baffling and the dialogue might well have been translated into English via a free iPhone app. ‐ Metro (UK)

4/5 83% Side Effects (2013) Scott Z Burns's clever screenplay takes a satirical swipe at a yuppie culture in which everyone seems to be on medication. But then it starts working on gripping, more sinister levels. ‐ Metro (UK)

3/5 80% Reality (2013) The parallels between religion and hollow TV celebrity addiction are belaboured in this overdrawn satire that ends up as an eloquently shot study of a deluded man's disintegration.‐ Metro (UK)
