89% 1917 (2020) 1917 is awe-inspiring at every turn and will be immortalised as the moment George Mackay and Dean Charles Chapman made it big on the silver screen. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

80% 16 Bars (2019) Through an unwavering lens, 16 Bars investigates the ways humanity traps itself in a cage through cycles of crime. Sam Bathrick has created something special with his efforts in telling a story the world needed to hear. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

72% The Gentlemen (2020) There is no covering up for the liberties Ritchie takes to have things his own way, but there is a certain acceptance of them that The Gentlemen generates and that might just be the best part. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

52% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) The Rise of Skywalker has only managed to forget to make itself feel important, and as a result, ends the Skywalker Saga with a film of wondrous moments that becomes hollow when viewed as part of something larger. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

89% The Two Popes (2019) The Two Popes is a film that washes over you, almost like a cleanse, and then ushers you out the other side enlightened and with a great deal of respect for the two men who bare their flaws and find only forgiveness on their path to changing the world. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

87% Hustlers (2019) Hustlers is a thoroughly entertaining view of crime in a post GFC era ruled by desperation. Come the credits all are depicted as the criminals they are, even if sometimes it feels as though the film didn't want to. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

96% The Irishman (2019) In two distinctly different ways, The Irishman is the culmination of careers defined by crime, and it makes for one of the finest films of the decade. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

No Score Yet Don't Look Down (Haut perchés) (2019) Don't Look Down doesn't budge for anything and that's admirable. But in sticking so rigorously to keeping the antagonist faceless, the film loses what it's trying to say and becomes empty. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

88% Bloody Marie (2019) Bloody Marie falls short on almost every front. Marie herself is an unlikeable mess of a character who only amounts to be the centrepiece of a film that was never fully realised as the thrill-ride it was supposed to be. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

26% Gemini Man (2019) Gemini Man is no more and no less than a failed experiment. Generally, something like this would be easy to ignore, but with the sheer amount of talented people involved the project leads to one inescapable thought; this was a missed opportunity. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

100% Talking About Trees (2019) Slow and unassuming, Talking About Trees sneaks up on you and becomes incredibly moving. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2019
82% Judy (2019) Judy, we won't forget you, I promise. This is a film that enhances the grandeur of a star from the past and does so with enough empathy and kindness to make it one of the finest films of the year. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

69% Joker (2019) Joker is a disturbing look through the eyes of a mad man who blames the world for his insanity, one told via career-best work from Todd Phillips and the performance of a lifetime by Joaquin Phoenix. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2019
56% The Beach Bum (2019) The Beach Bum may completely lack competent storytelling, but it's still an intriguing character study, nonetheless. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

65% Ride Like a Girl (2019) Ride Like a Girl has a huge heart, and that's enough to carry it over the finish line. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

71% The King (2019) The King is epic and reserved in equal measure, finding the perfect balance along the way. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2019
No Score Yet Tampoco tan grandes (2019) Not Quite Adults tosses mud at the wall to see what sticks and misses the wall. With hollow characters and a generic plot, this film is not quite good enough for 2019. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

84% Ad Astra (2019) Ad Astra reaches for the stars and never lets go, taking us on a deep and wondrous journey reminding us never to lose sight of what's right in front of us. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

100% Label Me (2019) Label Me's bold audacity makes for an impactful viewing experience. Keruser seems a more than capable director and will be one to watch in the coming years. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2019
98% The Farewell (2019) The Farewell is a heartfelt ode to the complexities of family relationships. Lulu Wang has developed into a filmmaker of great merit after only two films, and that is a staggering achievement. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

57% Strange But True (2019) Strange but True is at its best when it builds upon the concept of subjective truth, and that happens enough for this to be worth watching. However, it almost loses itself in dull character backstories and wild conspiracy theories. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

100% A Good Woman Is Hard to Find (2019) A Good Woman is Hard to Find is slow and at times empty, but Sarah Bolger elevates the experience to heights every other aspect could never have achieved without her. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2019
75% The Bestowal (2019) The Bestowal thinks it's a whole lot smarter than it really is. de Burgh's characters preach his message to little effect, but still manage to form a genuine emotional bond as a duo which is something to be proud of. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2019
52% Stuck (2019) Stuck is an admirable attempt to shine new light on 'don't judge a book by its cover' but it misses the mark. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 26, 2019
87% The Nightingale (2019) The Nightingale sits and gnaws at you, it begs you to listen to its plea, it horrifies you, and it reminds you that if we all approach life with a hint of empathy... - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2019
46% Palm Beach (2019) Palm Beach is far from perfect. The script is flawed and has a knack for being overly dramatic. However, the brilliant ensemble always manages to draw you back in whenever a plot point is just a bit too much. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 19, 2019
100% Mystify: Michael Hutchence (2020) Mystify pays homage to its title with how it manages to mystify you with its brilliance. By the end, Michael has come and gone again without missing a beat and as charismatic as ever. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 14, 2019
42% Opus Zero (2017) Opus Zero doesn't lack beauty, but its absence of a story is unforgivable. There is little to be gained by its constant philosophical teachings despite the apparent effort to speak to whoever sees it. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 12, 2019
66% Danger Close (2019) The stunning technical achievements and the supremely respectful performances elevate Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan above its run of the mill storytelling. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 6, 2019
No Score Yet Surviving Confession (2019) Surviving Confession manages to say nothing about surviving or confession in any sense. Throwing the major twists all into the final sequence was a disastrous decision and resulted in throwing any overarching message out the window. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

58% The Bromley Boys (2018) The Bromley Boys always manages to slip itself up whenever it gets going. Had there been more method to the madness, this could have been an enjoyable heart-warmer. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

92% The Keeper (Trautmann) (2018) "The Keeper" finds the perfect way to articulate the substantial power of forgiveness. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 29, 2019
No Score Yet The Price For Silence (2019) Despite good intentions, The Price for Silence is ultimately a melodramatic misstep for director Tony Germinario. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

97% Booksmart (2019) Booksmart is an intoxicating testament to youth that will serve as the moment Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein got their names placed firmly on the map. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

74% Papi Chulo (2019) Papi Chulo is a charming, well-acted film about a lonely man and the only person he could find to be his friend. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 9, 2019
64% Our Time (Nuestro tiempo) (2019) Our Time is well worth the watch. Mixing idyllic beauty with tumultuous romance makes for wonderous viewing, and although prone to getting lost within itself and lacking enough perspective to investigate love clearly. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
