3/5 66% Vice (2018) Bale is barely recognisable as the balding, fat and aged politician, and charts Cheney's barely noticed rise to prominence with a restrained and masterful glower. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

3/5 37% Glass (2019) A clever but plodding exploration of group psychosis. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

3/5 86% The 12th Man (2018) Although initially the movie is a bit of a slog, the final leg is superbly staged and finger-chewingly tense, and it left me with almost as few nails as our frostbitten hero. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

4/5 40% The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018) Glossy, glamorous, dark and dangerous, it draws on the films of 007, Jason Bourne and Alfred Hitchcock. There's two great vehicle chases, a couple of shoot outs, and a smartly staged game of cat and mouse. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2018
1/5 15% Robin Hood (2018) So desperate to be different it sacrifices fun and coherence for blundering action and alarming stylistic tics, frequently feeling as if its been adapted from a poor quality Batman video game. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2018
4/5 34% The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018) This live-action coming-of-age fantasy adventure is exciting, lavish, sentimental and sweet in Disney's best tradition and will beguile its target audience of young girls. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

4/5 81% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) Mamma Mia 2's manic determination to give you a good time is relentless. I'm not saying it's a great movie, but if you're in the mood for irresistible sun-kissed feel good poptastic silliness then it's terrific. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
4/5 94% Journey's End (2018) In this earnest expression of horror and fear, it's not just the nerves which are shot to pieces. There's much stiff upper lip talk of putting on a good show. And this very fine British film certainly does just that. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2018
5/5 91% Phantom Thread (2018) Reflecting Day-Lewis' cadaverous appearance, there is no fat on this lean and sinuous affair which is far removed from cuddly Sunday night TV drama. It's a shocking and intense tale of obsession, with alarming moments of humour. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

5/5 78% All the Money in the World (2017) Michelle Williams is terrific as Gail and deservedly receives top billing. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT

5/5 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Where the original was a 1940's detective story set in the near future, this uses Hollywood's biblical Roman epics as a template and is built with a similar scope, weight and spiritual core. - Daily Mirror (UK) EDIT
