4/10 8% Slender Man (2018) The sad fact is that Slender Man has lots of potential and the character is undeniably chilling but this film fails to muster anything as frightening as the true events that have surrounded the characters pop cultural impact since 2009.‐ Starburst

2/10 10% Escape Plan 2: Hades (2018) Escape Plan knew what it was, Escape Plan 2 is the exact opposite and it makes you appreciate the first movie even more.‐ Starburst

10/10 94% Andre the Giant (2018) It is constantly moving, often fun, and at points incredibly humorous, as it tells the story of the man who was nicknamed "the eighth wonder of the world" and from this documentary, he was just that.‐ Starburst

9/10 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) This is a lively affair with treats for fans and a barrage of entertainment for all. ‐ Starburst

8/10 53% Rampage (2018) Rampage is no doubt one of the most enjoyable movies ever based on a game but it's also a great big dollop of monstertertainment with a heart, morals, action scenes and well-designed creature roster as huge as its lead man's arms and charm.‐ Starburst

8/10 72% Ready Player One (2018) Ultimately Ready Player One is like being in a movie-themed pinball machine, as Spielberg delivers an optimistic human story with effects heavy nostalgic referential spectacle on top. ‐ Starburst

8/10 57% The Commuter (2018) The Commuter is a '90s high concept action thriller that is well worth the fare and is another brilliant entry in the Neeson season collection!‐ Starburst

4/10 28% Leatherface (2017) Leatherface bares little resemblance to what inspired it and while the intention to be different was certainly there, the story was not and fans will likely forget it as soon as the credits roll.‐ Starburst

9/10 97% Coco (2017) Coco is just a beautiful film that presents death as an adventure that is as big as life. We dare you not to cry, laugh or furiously tap that foot to "Un Poco Loco"!‐ Starburst

8/10 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a surprisingly fun romp that wisely seeks its thrills a mostly different way than the original did.‐ Starburst

7/10 52% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) All in all, this is certainly not the lamentable, offensive, bag of crap some of the clever clog reviewing community is making it out to be, it's just too cluttered really but at least it has a go. ‐ Starburst

8/10 74% The Limehouse Golem (2017) The Limehouse Golem is an odd little Gothic Victorian murder mystery and a stirring cocktail of period chills, modern anxieties and gruesome cruelty. ‐ Starburst

1/10 8% The Emoji Movie (2017) This is ... a horrible intention hidden (badly) behind a piece of entertainment, a corporate meeting translated into a film, only it isn't a film, it's an advert, a gathering of flies feasting on the wounded corpse of art and culture.‐ Starburst

10/10 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) This is a journey that must be seen in cinemas and a finale to one of the greatest contemporary trilogies in recent memory.‐ Starburst

8/10 60% Despicable Me 3 (2017) From the fantastic opening to a climatic finale and returning characters (one temporarily written out in a slyly apt way) to new all singing all dancing creations (literally), Despicable Me 3 is a heck of a lot of family (and fan) pleasing fun.‐ Starburst

4/10 17% Baywatch (2017) Overall Baywatch has a committed, beautiful and charming cast but fails to give them a fun story to work with, instead we are left with something that is not offensively bad just intermittently daft.‐ Starburst

8/10 45% Rock Dog (2017) Who doesn't love seeing an underdog succeed, especially one this kind hearted and fun. A welcome surprise.‐ Starburst

7/10 15% The Mummy (2017) Not terribly terrible or terribly good, it is a terribly all over the place start to the Dark Universe but the ideas were there, they just needed coherently forming and not throwing together.‐ Starburst

10/10 93% Wonder Woman (2017) A[n] armoured shoe-in for the most pleasantly stunning feature of the summer (or year for that matter), Wonder Woman is everything you could have ever expected from a Wonder Woman movie.‐ Starburst

8/10 67% The Fate of the Furious (2017) Fast and Furious 8 is ridiculously large and largely ridiculous and it sure as hell knows it and it's to this series' credit that it continues to successfully exceed the boundaries of its own preposterous enjoyment.‐ Starburst

76% Split (2017) Split is a true return to form for Shyamalan, who delivers the kind of film here, we craved from him the last few years.‐ Starburst

8/10 72% Sing (2016) Sing is a thoroughly enjoyable animated movie that uses its concept to far greater effect than Illumination Entertainment's The Secret Life Of Pets did last year, as it zips along with giddy energy and crowd pleasing warmth throughout.‐ Starburst

9/10 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Rogue One sure pulls no punches and it is a gritty war picture that perfectly captures a galaxy ruled and impoverished by the tyranny of the cold and clinical Empire.‐ Starburst

8/10 96% Moana (2016) Moana is a gorgeous offering by Disney that uses the magnificence of our planet to tell a simple but effective girl meets demigod sea-set story.‐ Starburst

6/10 37% Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016) As clichéd as it often is, Never Look Back is a watchable sequel that ought to pass the time, if not linger strong in the memory.‐ Starburst

10/10 97% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) Practically faultless and utterly magical, you owe it to your heart and soul to witness what just might be the greatest film released this year. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll be amazed, a masterpiece.‐ Starburst

4/10 24% Ben-Hur (2016) This is an unevenly assembled would-be epic that does not really do enough to justify a new take on this story.‐ Starburst

7/10 83% Sausage Party (2016) The jokes come thick and fast and hit and miss just as frequently.‐ Starburst

9/10 27% Suicide Squad (2016) A cult film if ever there was one, or should that be cult of personality, chock full of risks and unpredictability.‐ Starburst

8/10 85% Star Trek Beyond (2016) After 50 years, Star Trek continues to live long and prosper.‐ Starburst

8/10 75% The BFG (2016) The BFG has an unshakable charm thanks to its magnificent leads.‐ Starburst

5/10 74% Ghostbusters (2016) We just wish the movie had the determination to go all the way with its fresher convictions because by going the reboot route but then simply making do with rehashing the glory days, this film has not let the cast do their thing.‐ Starburst

6/10 17% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) Don't get us wrong, this sequel offers inoffensive fun that the kids will likely enjoy but Ice Age: Collision Course suggests that this franchise may well be endangered unless it adapts.‐ Starburst

8/10 30% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) This sequel, in every possible sense, is bigger and sillier and thus impossible to resist.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2016
7/10 74% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) The film is purely intended as a fun time for animal lovers and this reviewer felt like giving one of his own animals a hug afterwards, so job done really.‐ Starburst

7/10 36% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) Pencil this down as a turtle surprise! Sorry...‐ Starburst

8/10 27% Warcraft (2016) The film surprises in many ways but comes down to big warriors atop fantastical beasts, lobbing big arse weapons at each other's toothy, green-skinned and dreadlock-headed mugs... so what's not to like.‐ Starburst

4/10 17% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) This is better than the last film but it still feels wholly unnecessary.‐ Starburst

8/10 No Score Yet Pandorica (2016) It will be interesting to see where Paton goes from here because for a feature debut, this is very impactful stuff indeed.‐ Starburst

6/10 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) A film some will love and some will hate, while others will sit somewhere in the middle of disappointment and admiration. Hail, Caesar? Maybe more of a respectful nod perhaps?‐ Starburst

8/10 86% Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) Another darn fun entry in this deservingly popular series.‐ Starburst

10/10 93% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) From old joys to fresh twists, this is a unique blockbuster experience that celebrates the franchise whilst also expanding it.‐ Starburst

30% Extraterrestrial (2014) Extraterrestrial is an untaxing albeit regularly clichéd watch, but still a fun dose of sci-fi horror, even if the search for a truly great modern alien horror goes on.‐ Starburst
