4/5 84% Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero (2018) A fascinating, heart-warming and enjoyably educational movie that's a great, moving introduction to the War To End All Wars for younger children.‐ Movies4Kids

4/5 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) It is silly, but after the far more dramatic Avengers: Infinity War, it's a welcome light relief.‐ Movies4Kids

5/5 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) It's breathtaking stuff that not only demands a second viewing (and a follow up) but also confirms Tom Cruise as the true Hollywood action star that he deserves to be.‐ Movies4Kids

2/5 13% Thomas & Friends: Big World! Big Adventures! The Movie (2018) Colourful and cute in places, but grown-up fans of the older series will mourn for the days of Ringo Starr's voiceover... and the quaintness of Sodor ‐ Movies4Kids

3/5 79% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) The movie is completely stolen by Cher... It's just a huge shame she doesn't arrive until the final scenes of the film and her character isn't given much of a story.‐ Movies4Kids

4/5 93% Incredibles 2 (2018) A true family movie that really does have something for all ages.‐ Movies4Kids

2/5 48% Skyscraper (2018) A movie that just about manages to coast by on Johnson's likeability and some flashy effects but not much else.‐ Movies4Kids

3/5 38% Patrick (2018) A family romcom that's so British and old-fashioned each cinema ticket should come with a cup of tea and a scone.‐ Movies4Kids

3/5 60% Ploey: You Never Fly Alone (2018) Little viewers will enjoy this prettily animated tale...‐ Movies4Kids

4/5 51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Deliciously daft and ridiculously entertaining... the adventure is like a Greatest Hits of Jurassic Park.‐ Movies4Kids

1/5 15% The Little Vampire 3D (2017) It never really gets off the ground, and certainly doesn't do Angela Sommer-Bodenburg's beloved books justice.‐ Movies4Kids

2/5 17% Show Dogs (2018) Imagine Miss Congeniality with paws and you've pretty much got the plot of this forgettable animal comedy adventure.‐ Movies4Kids
Read More | Posted May 25, 2018
4/5 71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) It may not be one of the best Star Wars movies, but viewed as a sci-fi summer blockbuster, it's a blast.‐ Movies4Kids
Read More | Posted May 23, 2018
3/5 28% Sherlock Gnomes (2018) A sweet but bland diversion for little ones that doesn't offend but won't exactly enthrall anyone either.‐ Movies4Kids
Read More | Posted May 4, 2018
4/5 92% Lean on Pete (2018) The cinematography is stunning, from the shots of a boy & his horse against the open spaces of the mid-West to the dusty, drab and somehow desperate-looking rural racecourses.‐ Movies4Kids
Read More | Posted May 4, 2018
5/5 83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) A glorious, shocking, edge-of-the-seat adventure that boasts one of Marvel's best-ever villains ... perfectly played by Brolin and mesmerising from the first frame until the last.‐ Movies4Kids
Read More | Posted Apr 25, 2018
3/5 63% Every Day (2018) A sweet and quirky love story with shades of Groundhog Day and Big that subtly touches on identity, personality, and love being more than skin deep.‐ Movies4Kids
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2018
3/5 52% Rampage (2018) A silly but enjoyable monster-bashing action movie starring our favourite mighty-muscled hero.‐ Movies4Kids

4/5 79% I Kill Giants (2018) Madison Wolfe gives a stunning central performance as the wounded, scared and angry outcast ‐ Movies4Kids

4/5 67% Wonderstruck (2017) A thoughtful movie about children, family, and love that will stay with you long after the end credits.‐ Movies4Kids

5/5 92% Love, Simon (2018) Simon's fears, feelings, relationships and traumas are all real and feel true, and are portrayed in an entertaining, infectious and charming way.‐ Movies4Kids

4/5 83% Barefoot in the Park (1967) It's handled well by director Gene Saks (he also made The Odd Couple), who keeps the humour flowing and maintains a lively pace until about half an hour from the end.‐ Radio Times
Posted Mar 30, 2018
4/5 73% Ready Player One (2018) Spielberg creates two distinct worlds - the brightly-coloured, neon lit OASIS and the dull, bleak 'real world' - and has tremendous fun playing in both of them.‐ Movies4Kids
Read More | Posted Mar 28, 2018
3/5 40% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) Reminiscent of movies like The Wizard Of Oz and Labyrinth, this is an enjoyable fantastical sci-fi adventure for older kids, even if it isn't a perfect one.‐ Movies4Kids

3/5 75% The Cat from Outer Space (1978) Deliciously silly stuff.‐ Movies4Kids
Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2018
3/5 49% Tomb Raider (2018) An enjoyable, if somewhat forgettable, romp that owes a lot to the Indiana Jones movies but sadly lacks enough of the wit and excitement of them.‐ Movies4Kids
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
3/5 63% Peter Rabbit (2018) A movie that looks great, tries hard to be cute, but never quite manages to capture your heart in the way Beatrix Potter's original stories do.‐ Movies4Kids
Read More | Posted Feb 13, 2018
5/5 97% Black Panther (2018) A witty, action-packed epic, this adventure delivers a vibrant twist to the comic book movie formula while remaining true to the Marvel Universe it belongs to.‐ Movies4Kids

3/5 82% Early Man (2018) A fun movie that could have been brilliant if it had been just a bit more bonkers.‐ Movies4Kids
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2018
3/5 42% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) A tautly plotted young adult dystopian adventure and a fitting end to the trilogy.‐ Movies4Kids
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2018
5/5 97% Coco (2017) A joyous musical adventure that should charm adults just as much as the kids it is aimed at.‐ Movies4Kids

5/5 100% Paddington 2 (2018) One of those rare movies that really is meant for both adults and children ... it's a skilful mix of physical comedy, warm humour and sheer delight that should enchant everyone.‐ Movies4Kids

1/5 5% Nothing but Trouble (1991) Unfortunately this isn’t even half as fun as the shortest bumper-car ride.‐ Empire Magazine

3/5 56% The Greatest Showman (2017) A law needs to be passed that Hugh Jackman has to make at least one musical movie every year just to make the world a little bit more joyful.‐ Movies4Kids

4/5 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) An engaging, sharply scripted and clever family adventure.‐ Movies4Kids

4/5 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) The true star is Mark Hamill, giving the performance of his career as the anguished, isolated, tortured former Jedi Master. His scenes are worth the ticket price alone.‐ Movies4Kids

4/5 71% Ferdinand (2017) While the story is slightly predictable -- and an escape scene at the abbatoir may remind older viewers of Chicken Run -- there are some funny and sweet moments.‐ Movies4Kids

53% Safe House (2012) Reynolds is great, too, but the film truly belongs to Washington as the gruff, clever bad guy you'll end up rooting for.‐ The National (UAE)
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2017
3/5 86% A Monster in Paris (2011) This is almost more for adults than children, who may not appreciate the richly coloured animation, the lovely period-style music or the gentle storyline that relies on warm humour rather than out-and-out laughs.‐ The National (UAE)

2/5 11% Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked (2011) Parents, however, may shudder when the Chipettes gyrate to Lady Gaga's Bad Romance.‐ The National (UAE)
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2017
2/5 46% Happy Feet Two (2011) It's all perfectly acceptable viewing and it has its heart in the right place, but with only one memorable musical number and very little comedy, it's just not as fresh and fun as the first film.‐ The National (UAE)
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2017
3/5 37% Immortals (2011) The fight scenes look great, and there's nice support from Hurt, Luke Evans (as Zeus), too, but it's ultimately let down by the sniggersome script and thin plot. It's still better than last year's Clash Of The Titans, though.‐ The National (UAE)

4/5 72% Monsters (2010) Edwards delivers a fascinating drama set against a grim, almost abandoned landscape, where aliens are glimpsed but rarely revealed.‐ The National (UAE)
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2017
3/5 79% Brave (2012) This is a fun fairy tale rather than a classic one.‐ The National (UAE)

2/5 42% Step Up Revolution (2012) Is there love in the air for our toe-tapping duo? Could this be any more predictable?‐ The National (UAE)
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2017
1/5 20% Beastly (2011) Aimed squarely at Twilight's teenage fans, this is about as subtle as a baseball bat to the head and only marginally more enjoyable.‐ The National (UAE)
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2017
5/5 96% Argo (2012) This is one of the best American mainstream movies of the year and another taut, terrific film from director Affleck. Truly unmissable.‐ The National (UAE)
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2017
4/5 87% Frankenweenie (2012) [Frankenweenie] is a surprisingly heartwarming movie that is perhaps Burton's most touching film since Edward Scissorhands.‐ The National (UAE)
