Deepwater Horizon (2016)

"The sense of dread is stomach-churning and when the well testing turns into full-blown terror Berg is relentless." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

The Magnificent Seven (2016)

"If you've already seen Hell or High Water and the itching and scratching of waiting for the galactic gun-slinging of Rogue One and Guardians II is still proving too much, give this a go." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

Hell or High Water (2016)

"It really would be a crime if Hell or High Water didn't get some recognition come awards time. It'll definitely leave its dust in your bones, and something in your eye." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

Don't Breathe (2016)

"To reveal any more plot-wise would spoil your immersion in a movie that has nods to the masters but still manages to deliver real terror from the tropes and has a few tricks up its sleeve too." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

Café Society (2016)

"Initially, Cafe Society feels like it's going to be powered by gags but the fun of the early stages gives way to a more poignant second half as Allen ruminates on grief and guilt." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

Bad Moms (2016)

"Writer-directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore have cast their movie perfectly and there's a wonderful energy between Kunis, Bell and Hahn." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

The Purge: Election Year (2016)

"Anyone on the hunt for the kind of 80s thrills that came with living vicariously through VHS will find that Election Year ticks many boxes." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

Lights Out (2016)

"Having done a good job with the casting of his central trio, it's a mystery why Sandberg didn't play to his screen strengths and give Bello more to get her teeth into." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

Nerve (2016)

"Compared to the Michael Douglas-starring head-melter The Game, Nerve is really only a warm-up, but it is fun and it will keep you off your own phone for a bit. Maybe." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

The Shallows (2016)

"It's a lean and fast genre movie which shows that some superhero franchise really should give Blake Lively something decent to chew on in the future." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

Time Out Of Mind (2015)

"George's plight is both heartbreaking and chilling and his time spent in waiting areas, hostels and subway trains inspires a greater sense of both tenderness and thankfulness." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

A War (Krigen) (2016)

"[The] performances, and the flawed humanity they so expertly convey, stay with you long after the closing credits, as does the question of what you would do if placed in the same situation as their characters." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

Creed (2015)

"Creed is a special film that pound for pound competes with the best heartstring-pulling of Rocky Balboa's 40-year screen odyssey but, crucially, looks to what's ahead in a very exciting way." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

Youth (2015)

"Here gorgeous visuals and great music - no spoilers - do wonders for eyes and ears while Caine and his co-stars prove the best of visitors to both head and heart." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

Goosebumps (2015)

"Chances are Goosebumps will prove to be a little too scary for those born after 2008 - fun for three-quarters of the family, if you will - but they'll grow into liking it." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

Jason Bourne (2016)

"That finale is a bit too Fast and Furious, while the Las Vegas location doesn't lend itself to being a Ludlum locale. Still, by that stage more than enough has been done to justify another sequel." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

By The Sea (2015)

"There is no doubt that this drama is a half-hour too long and slow-moving, but Jolie and Pitt do some of their best work in scenes here -- and they don't hold back." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

My Name Is Emily (2015)

"An adapt-to-your-own-life story about mental health, memory and loss that offers something different across the generations. To say it's a dry-eye challenge is quite the understatement." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

High-Rise (2016)

"Wheatley's creation of a world within a world is superb and High-Rise's production design puts many of the Hollywood blockbusters to shame. Immersion in these surroundings is absolute, with the building as much of a character as Hiddleston and co." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

The Finest Hours (2016)

The Survivalist (2015)

Gods Of Egypt (2016)

"Return yourself to the mind of a seven- or eight-year-old and Gods of Egypt's action sequences are diverting but not even in the same universe as the as-good-second-time-around Captain America: Civil War." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

The BFG (2016)

The Witch (2016)

Florence Foster Jenkins (2016)

"Streep is, as ever, flawless - to sing as bizarrely as this you have to know how to sing well in the first place -- and her chemistry with Grant is moreish in the extreme." ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

The Elementary Particles (2006)
