29% Venom (2018) Truly, a film this gloriously bad deserves to be seen on the big screen. If you want to see something good, see something else. If you want to see something fun... well, this is it.‐ New Zealand Herald

3/5 76% Smallfoot (2018) Despite feeling pretty inconsequential throughout much of its running time, Smallfoot's hopeful finale is unexpectedly uplifting.‐ New Zealand Herald

3.5/5 89% Mega Time Squad (2018) The script is foul-mouthed and very funny, revelling in its distinctly Kiwi rhythm and dialogue. There's a dry wit to the gags, frequently bordering on absurdism.‐ New Zealand Herald

2/5 38% Occupation (2018) Clearly hoping to capture an old-school feel, the movie is just too long and too cliched, bordering on ridiculous towards its end. Even the soundtrack, which swells to epic heights as often as possible, feels cheesy rather than stirring.‐ New Zealand Herald

3/5 65% Ideal Home (2018) Ideal Home offers a twist on the traditional family dramedy that leans slightly more towards the comedy side of things. It's ideal viewing if you're after a breezy, entertaining watch.‐ New Zealand Herald

4/5 63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) A hugely enjoyable, superbly acted, mostly realistic, incredibly tense action-thriller. And that's from someone who disliked the first one.‐ New Zealand Herald

3.5/5 55% Tag (2018) It's strangely pleasing to see so much spectacle and stunt work attached to something as stupid as a game of tiggy. ‐ New Zealand Herald

70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) It's all good. And that's its problem. This was the film for Star Wars to go completely rogue. It didn't. Yes, it might have been bad. But at least it wouldn't have been so boringly, satisfyingly good.‐ New Zealand Herald

83% Deadpool 2 (2018) Deadpool 2 is awesome and you should go to see it. Especially if, like me, you're suffering from a bad case of superhero fatigue. It could be good for what ails ya.‐ New Zealand Herald

89% Isle of Dogs (2018) Art should be about breaking down barriers, not putting up walls.‐ New Zealand Herald

92% Dunkirk (2017) At home Dunkirk will not be a good movie. Right now, however, it's unmissable.‐ New Zealand Herald

5/5 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) The Last Jedi has been favourably compared to The Empire Strikes Back and while there's some truth to that, they're very different films. Yes, it's dark but it's the moments of light that you'll remember.‐ New Zealand Herald

4/5 90% David Lynch: The Art Life (2017) This unfussy documentary, narrated by Lynch himself, goes a long way to explaining the circumstances and forces that wired his brain the way it is.‐ New Zealand Herald

5/5 79% T2 Trainspotting (2017) T2: Trainspotting entertains and thrills. But most of all it makes you take a good hard look at yourself.‐ New Zealand Herald
