4/5 58% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) Shooting in 65mm, Branagh delivers all of the eye-saucering exteriors you'd expect, as mountaintops soar, sunlight glints at the end of tunnels and stations snuggle under a duvet of blue snow.‐ Total Film

3/5 49% The Glass Castle (2017) Well-acted, well-made and well-intentioned, but not quite strong enough to gain the awards traction it would desire.‐ Total Film

3/5 51% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) With less to say for itself and the tics and tropes of the spy genre already upended, this sequel at times runs around and around in circles, even if it often looks golden whilst doing it.‐ Digital Spy

5/5 100% Close Encounters Of The Third Kind: 40th Anniversary Release (2017) The tension only serves a tale of obsession and sacrifice - qualities easily lost against the wondrous effects and heart-swelling hope.‐ Total Film

Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2017
4/5 82% The Villainess (Ak-Nyeo) (2017) The plotting is tangled, the emotional undertow slight, but the action keeps on coming, including a blistering multi-player sword fight on speeding bikes.‐ Total Film

4/5 68% mother! (2017) Aronofsky's seventh movie, mother!, is being marketed as a 'psychological thriller' but reveals itself to be his most out-and-out, not to mention outré, horror movie yet.‐ Digital Spy

Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2017
3/5 84% Godzilla Resurgence (Shin Godzilla) (2016) The doc-flavoured approach lends both urgency and tedium, while the blend of miniatures, stop-motion and CGI references the various looks of his 63-year history.‐ Total Film

2/5 38% The Last Word (2017) Much mellowing and life-learning ensues in a plodding dramedy, though the glint in MacLaine's eyes makes it almost worth your while. Almost.‐ Total Film

2/5 29% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) There's a thin line between visionary and hodgepodge, and it's a line that King Arthur crosses and re-crosses with an abandon that rivals Hunnam's accent sliding from Cockney to Californian and back again.‐ Total Film

Read More | Posted Mar 28, 2017
5/5 100% Angst Essen Seele auf (Ali: Fear Eats the Soul) (1974) The prolific auteur was a huge admirer of Douglas Sirk, and there are echoes here of All That Heaven Allows, but the intensity is all Fassbinder.‐ Total Film

3/5 41% Jane Got a Gun (2016) Dusting itself off from a nightmare production, this western finally arrives to shoot, for the most part, straight and true. It certainly ain't no calamity Jane.‐ Total Film
