4/5 83% Patti Cake$ (2017) A story we've seen told a hundred times before feels fresh thanks to Danielle Macdonald's brilliant performance, handling both the drama and the rapping in style. - Empire Magazine EDIT

4/5 94% SHOT!: The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock (2017) As well as a gifted photographer, Rock is a raconteur, with the subjects of his stories needing no introduction. But the real stars of the show here are his pictures, and that is as it should be. - Empire Magazine EDIT

4/5 92% I Am Not a Serial Killer (2016) O'Brien here both successfully reintroduces Max Records to the world, and elicits Christopher Lloyd's best performance in a long time. His film deserves cult classic status at the very least. - Empire Magazine EDIT

3/5 50% Dog Eat Dog (2016) Hackneyed and somewhat dated Tarantino-isms abound. But for the committed fan of such things, there is more than enough to enjoy here ... - Empire Magazine EDIT

3/5 94% Gimme Danger (2016) The Stooges' story is a natural fit for the silver screen. Unfortunately, superfan Jim Jarmusch's love letter to them does not quite do it justice. - Empire Magazine EDIT

2/5 19% Rupture (2017) Despite an intriguing premise, an impossible-to-buy plot contrivance and a deeply unsatisfying ending put paid to this sci-fi psycho-thriller. - Empire Magazine EDIT
