3/5 58% White Boy Rick (2018) It's an entertaining ride, but the lack of a knock-out punch lessens the impact of the careful work all round. - The List EDIT

2/5 17% The Possession of Hannah Grace (2018) Crunching bones and tearing flesh are effectively rendered, yet expectations of cheap thrills drain away as the scares fail to materialise. - The List EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us (2018) Regrettably, The Power of Us offers little to convert new recruits - it's a candy-coloured advert that effectively showcases product. - The List EDIT

2/5 32% Kin (2018) Kin ends up feeling like a pilot for a TV show that didn't deserve to be commissioned. - The List EDIT

2/5 83% Juliet, Naked (2018) Juliet, Naked is a cute but generic rom-com that's short of rom and almost completely devoid of com. - The List EDIT

3/5 76% Smallfoot (2018) If the setting and characters seem familiar, the film's warm and fuzzy message should stave off the winter blues. - The List EDIT

4/5 97% 1945 (2017) It's the original slant that 1945 offers on the Holocaust that makes it essential, if bleak viewing. - The List EDIT

3/5 23% Mile 22 (2018) Mile 22 is about wham-bam video game action rather than geopolitical treatise but there's enough fantasy shock and awe here to justify anyone's buck. - The List EDIT

4/5 49% Superfly (2018) The aesthetic may have changed with the passing decades, but this superfly guy remains the man of the hour. - The List EDIT

1/5 13% Action Point (2018) Paramount's market research might have imagined that a low-rent Animal House / Caddyshack-type comedy aimed at the Jackass crowd would find its audience, but Action Point just isn't it. - The List EDIT

3/5 24% Luis and The Aliens (2018) A s a time-passer, it offers some shapeless fun for easily-amused kids. - The List EDIT

2/5 51% Equalizer 2 (2018) After four films with Fuqua, it's time for [Washington] to find a collaborator interested in making something more challenging than these childish, retrograde, wish fulfillment fantasies. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2018
3/5 82% Beirut (2018) The Negotiator is a decidedly old-school thriller: specific in scope, limited in action, grounded in political realities and conventional in resolution. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 6, 2018
4/5 60% Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) Without any of the highbrow trimmings of a Pixar movie, A Monster Vacation is all an animation needs to be: fast, funny and good-humoured. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2018
1/5 11% Thomas & Friends: Big World! Big Adventures! The Movie (2018) An impersonal slice of television that feels out of place on the big screen. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2018
3/5 45% Marrowbone (2018) Thrill-seekers are likely to be disappointed but anyone searching for an improvement on the usual mechanical ghost-train high jinks will be rewarded by a sober, well-constructed riff on classic genre tropes. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 9, 2018
1/5 44% In Darkness (2018) Those who do brave Byrne's silly, distasteful film will be rewarded with a twist that renders everything that went before it as complete and utter gibberish. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2018
3/5 95% Who We Are Now (2018) The power of Newton's film comes from the way he digs into Beth's vulnerability, depicting her inability to help herself. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2018
3/5 No Score Yet The Parting Glass (2017) O'Hare's writing is often excellent; it's a shame that his depiction of a tightly-wound family often feels closer to theatre than cinema. - The List EDIT

3/5 52% Papillon (2018) Arguments remain as to whether this survival story needed a retelling, but there is a case to be made for Noer's take being less bloated and more true to Charrière's book. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2018
2/5 91% Searching (2018) The online world becomes a narrative device to frame a conventional mystery that slips into abject ludicrousness as the story unravels. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2018
3/5 89% Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat (2018) The motives behind Basquiat's art may remain elusive, but the film drills down on its subject to offer a personal glimpse of an artist as a young man. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 18, 2018
3/5 32% Super Troopers 2 (2018) Audiences excited by the comic possibilities of a bear pursuing a trooper into a chemical toilet will get exactly what they want, and more, from this lightweight, decidedly low-brow sequel. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 11, 2018
2/5 14% The Little Vampire 3D (2017) Such beloved source material deserves a more polished revival than this. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted May 21, 2018
3/5 38% Life of the Party (2018) McCarthy's script, co-written with director / husband Ben Falcone, may be pure froth, but at least there's a positive representation of women behind the comedy. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
3/5 45% The Hurricane Heist (2018) It may be a far cry from his biggest hits, but Cohen has created an intoxicatingly silly movie perfect for late-night viewing, and it's one that deserves instant cult status. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 2, 2018
3/5 83% The Bachelors (2017) A sunny, laidback story of grief and healing that makes a few genial points before retreating into sentimental contrivance. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2018
3/5 27% Proud Mary (2018) Proud Mary delivers on its shopworn promise: the heroine is wronged, riled, and puts things right in brisk fashion. In a time of bloated blockbusters, the no-nonsense approach offers minor pleasures for genre fans, if little else. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2018
4/5 100% Nae Pasaran (2018) Nae Pasaran is a highly emotive documentary that demonstrates the power of solidarity in democracy, while also showing that admissions of guilt are rare. - The List EDIT

2/5 92% Love, Simon (2018) Indie dramas routinely tackle coming-out issues far better; in 2018 there's no reason or excuse for a commercial film to be so unwilling to honestly engage with the sexuality of its protagonist. - The List EDIT

1/5 20% Submergence (2018) Despite big-name stars, Wenders' film will provoke nothing but indifferent shrugs from the few who choose to sit through it. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2018
2/5 73% The Party's Just Beginning (2018) A breathlessly lurid account of growing up in Inverness that's equally shrill and unconvincing. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 26, 2018
2/5 17% Father Figures (2017) Wilson and Helms are the right leads for this odd couple tale of friction between a laidback bum and his uptight sibling, but the central conceit (that women enjoying sexual freedom is funny) no longer passes for a joke. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2018
12% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) The climax, when it comes, is yet more of the fumbled plotting that has made the Fifty Shades films a trial to watch. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2018
2/5 23% Tad the Lost Explorer and the Secret of King Midas (Tadeo Jones 2: El secreto del Rey Midas) (2017) The Tad franchise has the sense to steal from the best, even if such copy-cat strategies deprive the hero of any unique character of his own. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2018
3/5 51% 12 Strong (2018) Comes up fresh due to a strong cast, large-scale production, and a narrative scope that dodges difficult political questions. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2018
3/5 80% Walk With Me (2017) If you're prepared to do a little philosophical heavy-lifting for yourself, it's a thoughtful and persuasive invitation to a world of meditation. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2018
4/5 82% Brigsby Bear (2017) As a film, Brigsby Bear is as lovable as the title character himself. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2017
3/5 44% The Star (2017) This is a bible-based, animated adventure for children, with the emphasis on cute comedy and familiar pious tropes; it's somewhat dry and bland, but simplicity and an over-qualified voice cast help see it through. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2017
4/5 98% Trophy (2017) This powerful film is an absolute must for anyone looking to gain a better understanding of the issues involved. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 13, 2017
3/5 30% A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) The trademark irreverence keeps proceedings likeable, and in the face of such an onslaught of swearing, casual drug-use and cheerful excess, it seems churlish to complain. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2017
3/5 76% Son of Bigfoot (2018) An espionage-flavoured take on the Sasquatch myth, with directors Ben Stassen and Jeremy Degruson hitting the right, child-centric tone. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 30, 2017
4/5 75% The Merciless (Bulhandang) (2017) Byun delivers a taut and visceral slice of machismo; a tough, gaudy entry in the Korean crime cycle that's likely to expand the ever-growing fanbase for this kind of blood-drenched, bare-knuckle fare. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2017
2/5 15% Geostorm (2017) Bombastic and noisy, yet minuscule in emotional heft, it's a geostorm in a teacup. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
3/5 48% My Little Pony: The Movie (2017) It's cute, simple and surefooted enough to deliver a dog-and-pony show that the target audience, at least, are likely to adore. - The List EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2017
4/5 85% Loving Vincent (2017) By tapping into the innate power of great art, Kobiela and Welchman's drama adds up to more than the novelty of its sumptuous parts. - The List EDIT
