3.5/5 82% Molly's Game (2018) Molly's Game is Aaron Sorkin's first directorial effort, and like his writing, it's sharp and quick-witted. ‐ Rescu (Australia)

76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) It is aimed at a slightly older audience than the first film, and there are a few adult jokes and scary moments to be aware of, but all in all, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle delivers a welcome return.‐ Rescu (Australia)

2/5 91% The Disaster Artist (2017) Perhaps this one is just for the die-hard fans, burning to know how such a bad film was ever brought to life. Clearly, I'm not one of them.‐ Rescu (Australia)

3.5/5 79% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) It's not going to be a film to many people's tastes, but if you like your character explorations dark, and enjoy a little meddling with normal emotions, this could be the film for you.‐ Rescu (Australia)

3.5/5 57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) Kenneth Branagh takes on both the famous detective and the role of director, but thankfully excels at both. His Poirot is sharp, funny and just eccentric enough.‐ Rescu (Australia)

3/5 28% A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) Like most sequels, the film fails to reach the heights of its predecessor, but offers enough fun to make it worth your while.‐ Rescu (Australia)

3.5/5 33% The Only Living Boy in New York (2017) If you enjoy films that are more an observation on life, you'll love this one. It's simple and warm, and just a very pleasant way to spend a few hours experiencing life and the world through another's eyes.‐ Rescu (Australia)

4.5/5 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Ryan Gosling seems born for this hybrid role. His general monotone detachment works especially well here, and the subtle nuances he shows fits perfectly into the world first etched by Harrison Ford.‐ Rescu (Australia)

4.5/5 98% I Am Not Your Negro (2017) While this is an intellectual film, and a very discomfiting one, it is a film that all should experience. It's an eye-opener, and it's brilliantly piercing.‐ Rescu (Australia)

2.5/5 53% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Kingsman: The Golden Circle will soon be forgotten. But, if you are after some light and at times a quite humorous spy parody, and you've got almost two and a half hours to spare, then give it a go. ‐ Rescu (Australia)
