3/5 87% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) You'll cackle at Christine Baranski's crackling dialogue, cry when Meryl sings 'My Love, My Life', and when all is said and done you might even be tempted to go again.‐ Empire Magazine

3/5 53% The First Purge (2018) With a sharper focus on race and plenty of real-life horrors to draw from, Gerard McMurray brings a fresh perspective to this splashily satirical prequel. If only its action was as punchy as its ideas.‐ Empire Magazine

4/5 51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Despite some familiar echoes, Fallen Kingdom also takes big, brave, irreversible strides, deriving tantalising logical conclusions from Michael Crichton's premise and setting up a brave new World for this trilogy's final chapter.‐ Empire Magazine

4/5 86% Mary and The Witch's Flower (2018) Yonebayashi pays perfect tribute to Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli with this bewitching and visually dazzling adventure. Studio Ponoc is off to a flying start.‐ Empire Magazine

2/5 14% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) The truth is, it's not very good - and entirely without scares. But we dare you to watch it without unleashing a few unintended laughs along the way.‐ Empire Magazine

3/5 44% The Hurricane Heist (2018) Like the sound of a film called 'The Hurricane Heist'? Then you'll probably enjoy The Hurricane Heist.‐ Empire Magazine

3/5 47% Red Sparrow (2018) Red Sparrow is a promising beginning to a potential new spy franchise. Just be aware of its unexpectedly barbed edges.‐ Empire Magazine

2/5 14% Winchester (2018) Despite an intriguing premise, Winchester misses the mark. Its anti-gun message is a shot in the right direction, but lazy fright tactics and a contradictory ending leave it firing blanks.‐ Empire Magazine

63% Spectre (2015) Digging into Bond history, returning director Sam Mendes has, against all the odds, delivered a film that at least matches, and perhaps even betters, Skyfall.‐ London Evening Standard

94% Whiplash (2014) Go and see Whiplash. It's as simple as that. Whiplash is incredible. I really can't believe how good Whiplash is. I can't stop telling people about Whiplash.‐ GQ Magazine [UK]

92% Ex Machina (2015) Ex Machina is a film unafraid to spend the majority of its run-time discussing the Big Questions - or indeed, just to be discussing things full-stop.‐ GQ Magazine [UK]

26% Jupiter Ascending (2015) Is Jupiter Ascending a good film? It's practically impossible to tell. For all its abundant insanity, it's never anything less than watchable.‐ GQ Magazine [UK]

74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) Once the machine fully kicks into gear, the final third is a rebellious, freewheeling delight.‐ GQ Magazine [UK]

90% Wild (2014) If you're looking for a film that's contemplative, honest, and engaging, you can't go far wrong with Cheryl Strayed's trip into the Wild.‐ GQ Magazine [UK]

96% Citizenfour (2014) It's rare to see this sort of candid footage, but then transparency is Snowden's mantra.‐ GQ Magazine [UK]
