3/5 34% The Leisure Seeker (2018) Mirren and Sutherland just about keep the ship afloat. ‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

3/5 90% Let the Sunshine In (Un beau soleil intérieur) (2018) Let The Sunshine In is undoubtedly easy on both eye and ear (the soundtrack is a treat), and its perceptive study of the silly games we play lifts it high above mere Gallic whimsy‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

2/5 51% Rampage (2018) In between the dust-ups, the dialogue, performances and plot markers are all rather rickety.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

5/5 100% Making the Grade (2017) This is truly life-affirming filmmaking.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

4/5 90% The Third Murder (Sandome no satsujin) (2017) The Third Murder is a treat - intrigue-laden shots and cinematography, subtleties in the expressions of the starring cast, spots of dotty humour and an oddly ethereal atmosphere that is gripping.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

5/5 79% Unsane (2018) Devilish fun that comes with a welcome side-order of B-movie ridiculousness.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

5/5 91% I got life! (Aurore) (2017) From the opening scenes, an irresistible glow is established. Agnes Jaoui gives a towering central performance as Aurore.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

3/5 16% Midnight Sun (2018) Cheesy as they come, Scott Speer's film does hold its ground to the end. ‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

4/5 90% Isle of Dogs (2018) Look past the irony and stark, symmetrical detachment of the aesthetic and there is something fresh, mesmeric and deeply touching about Isle of Dogs and its tale of courage and loyalty. ‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

2/5 49% Tomb Raider (2018) Fun in spots, undeniably, but a mess on the whole.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

4/5 90% I, Tonya (2018) Director Craig Gillespie has fun with the characters, the era and a general air of insouciance Harding injected the prim world of figure-skating with.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

5/5 99% Lady Bird (2017) This is gorgeously balanced portraiture that can laugh at its precocious heroine with much affection while tracing her formative journey with the dignity it deserves.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

5/5 94% Loveless (Nelyubov) (2018) Yet another piece of exemplary filmmaking by Zvyagintsev. Here, he draws out tantalising performances from his cast, while making incredible use of elements beyond the frame of action to amplify seismic levels of human disquiet.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

2/5 25% The 15:17 to Paris (2018) You just want it all to stop and for real actors and scriptwriters to be parachuted in.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2018
3/5 73% The Mercy (2017) A disjointed film that feels as if it decided to changed tack somewhere along the way.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2018
2/5 42% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) Should you be unlucky enough to stumble into this film, you will find lots of formulaic guff about viruses and cures, pongy dialogue plucked straight from the 1980s action handbook and a constant feeling of being trapped inside a fast-paced video game.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2018
3/5 82% Early Man (2018) While the animation remains chock full of invention and the humour reliably athletic, this prehistoric caper somehow ends up being not quite the sum of its many witty and creative parts.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2018
2/5 51% Downsizing (2017) Christoph Waltz and Hong Chau feature in a fine cast but the entire plot meanders too much in search of decent narrative hinge. The middle act is in particular need of a boot up the rear.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2018
3/5 84% The Final Year (2018) An efficient snapshot with moments of greatness.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2018
4/5 80% Walk With Me (2017) A sensual and surprisingly fascinating documentary film that slows you right down to its own meditative tempo.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jan 14, 2018
2/5 47% Jupiter's Moon (Jupiter holdja) (2017) Jupiter's Moon is an insubstantial and incomplete sci-fi yarn that strives for the dystopian heat of, say, Children Of Men -- but is too caught up in effects and a litany of inescapably mannered long takes that contribute nothing.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

4/5 82% Brad's Status (2017) Stiller can do this kind of thing in his sleep but still manages to tower over the cast.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jan 14, 2018
5/5 78% All the Money in the World (2017) In between the two Plummers (no relation) is Michelle Williams's stunningly nuanced turn as the boy's mother that puts her squarely in the race this awards season.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2018
4/5 82% Molly's Game (2018) Rat-a-tat-tat dialogue, no crummy love interest, a slick dress sense and a satisfying general air of moxie make Molly's Game a superb night out with a refreshing female protagonist.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

4/5 31% Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) The real hit of this third PP outing comes, as ever, from the cast.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Dec 26, 2017
5/5 87% Song of Granite (2017) If accepted, Song of Granite's potency will blindside you.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Dec 10, 2017
3/5 No Score Yet Jaha's Promise (2017) Irish duo Patrick Farrelly and Kate O'Callaghan are at times too preoccupied with slick cinematography and mood shots when little dressing-up is needed for an issue of this gravity.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
5/5 67% Happy End (2017) Uncomfortable laughter duels with sorry sighs as you reassess previous assertions that yours is the maddest family in the world.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
3/5 45% The Star (2017) Cynics may roll their eyes at the clash of religious scripture and celebrity voicing (Kelly Clarkson, Oprah Winfrey and Mariah Carey feature) but even they can't deny the efficiency of its expressive animation and creature-feature fun.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

5/5 98% Jane (2017) ... a very intimate story of an individual ahead of her time who pushed through a male-dominated sector to achieve global acclaim.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

2/5 19% Daddy's Home 2 (2017) Lithgow is a small mercy.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

4/5 28% Suburbicon (2017) Suburbicon somewhat argues that we should persevere with Clooney as a director of scope and dexterity even if not everything he throws at the wall sticks.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

3/5 92% Good Time (2017) Pattinson nails a back-breaking role and the Safdies direct with an unrelenting visceral edge.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Nov 19, 2017
3/5 85% Ingrid Goes West (2017) Ingrid is too tragic and disturbing a protagonist to allow for real fun. There are, however, a fine spread of performances (Olsen excels) and much food for thought (never a bad thing).‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

2/5 40% Justice League (2017) Like everything Snyder directs, it is an ungainly looking sludgefest of gloopy CGI and dull, dirt-hued backdrops cut with neon glare.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Nov 19, 2017
4/5 100% Daphne (2017) There is lots of sharp humour in Peter Mackie Burns's film but also a low-level ache that swells in volume with masterful subtlety.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
3/5 46% Everything, Everything (2017) Despite the low-hanging metaphors and cloying, prettified dreaminess of it all, this is accurately aimed at its young target market and should elicit the desired effect in them.‐ Irish Independent

3/5 40% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) This bloody-buddy comedy is an adequate vehicle for the combined star hit of Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson.‐ Irish Independent

3/5 70% Annabelle: Creation (2017) The cast and production values lift it out of trope-heavy inanity.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Aug 14, 2017
4/5 89% Maudie (2017) Dubliner Aisling Walsh's biopic of Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis is a handsome, sensitive drama, laced with tragedy and discord. Hawkins and Hawke duet well in what are physically demanding lead roles.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

2/5 8% The Emoji Movie (2017) A cinema release perhaps without equal this year in terms of how shockingly dreadful it is.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2017
3/5 49% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Spectacle, for sure, seems to be the word of the day and Valerian does deliver on that front.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2017
4/5 51% England Is Mine (2017) Wry, tasteful, unforced and with a tangible sense of the era, this is a portrait of a mercurial rock icon's formative years that, fittingly, ploughs its own furrow.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2017
4/5 98% The Big Sick (2017) Nanjiani and Kazan are joined by a darling supporting cast that includes Holly Hunter and Ray Romano. And yes, the ending will very much leave you with "all the feels", as the kids say today.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

5/5 100% The Farthest (2017) There is too much of sheer fascination to map out here but some strands are particularly astonishing.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2017
4/5 86% Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (Captain Underpants) (2017) The spasmodic, overheated animation alone will probably be catnip to younger audiences but Captain Underpants... also displays some very subversive comedy writing that exudes a level of mischief that at times would make even Pixar blush.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2017
4/5 99% City of Ghosts (2017) Amid such horror, the quiet bravery in the face of this great modern evil is extraordinary. Even calling oneself a "journalist" beside such selfless heroism feels laughable.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

2/5 68% Cars 3 (2017) It's unlikely that this will be the only review to drop this pun, but the biggest feeling we are left with by this third Cars instalment is one of being down this road before.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)

4/5 33% Halal Daddy (2017) The real bounty of Conor McDermottroe's film is its core cast -- all of whom beam with sparkle and vigour.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
4/5 59% Despicable Me 3 (2017) This suitably giddy addition maintains high standards of juvenile silliness while still providing the requisite cheeky winks for mums and dads too.‐ Sunday Independent (Ireland)
