3/5 93% Cam (2018) There is a better drama to be found in this area; a complex journey for the protagonist of what can only be described as a self-exploitation film.‐

5/5 93% Mandy (2018) This is Nic Cage's raging, blood-soaked, psychedelic revenge inferno, and it's exactly as difficult to explain as that suggests. But also just as enticing. ‐

2/5 30% Venom (2018) The movie clings to the most basic of superhero plotting, the most egregious of comic-book clichés and the most underwritten of villainous motives‐

4/5 85% A Simple Favor (2018) It's sharply and concisely written, and it's as slick and stylish as Paul Feig's own collection of magnificent, handcrafted bowties‐

4/5 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) It serves as welcome respite, but essentially Marvel has followed its most consequential movie with its least.‐

2/5 46% Skyscraper (2018) It's genuinely refreshing to see a film like this played with such sincerity. Such ridiculous, idiotic sincerity‐

4/5 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) It may not look like much, but it's got it where it counts, kid.‐

2/5 38% The Strangers: Prey At Night (2018) This film suffers from all the worst of the genre's most commonplace flaws. Every jump scare is telegraphed well in advance and stupid horror logic persists throughout.‐

5/5 83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) It somehow meets every single impossible expectation you have for it. To be fair, it's only because you're stupid.‐

2/5 0% Lies We Tell (2018) A film that also aims for gangster grit, community awareness and emotional impact, but compromises on everything.‐ Total Film

4/5 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) On the whole, this is a great step forward for the franchise - it's deeper, it's darker and it has porgs.‐

4/5 75% Perfect Blue (1999) Kon's film deliberately obfuscates, to hypnotic effect.‐ Total Film

4/5 No Score Yet Battle of Soho (2017) It's bookended by indulgent artistic flourishes, but interviews with several of Soho's passionate eccentrics capture the locale's unique seedy beauty.‐ Total Film

5/5 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Thor has finally found his place in the MC Universe, and it's in comedy. ‐

3/5 87% In Syria (Insyriated) (2017) Bites off more narrative peril than it can chew, but effectively explores a troubling dilemma: would you help a neighbour if it meant endangering your own family?‐ Total Film

4/5 100% The Farthest (2017) With emphasis on Earth's microscopic standing within an infinite cosmos, as well as the sobering fact that Voyager 1 will continue travelling for millions of years, outliving mankind, the film's scope is truly astronomical.‐ Total Film

3/5 40% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) Between a lazy script and predictable story, The Hitman's Bodyguard survives on the performance and delivery of its stars alone.‐

4/5 67% Napping Princess (Hirune-hime: Shiranai watashi no monogatari) (2017) As reality and fantasy blur, we're taken on an occasionally confounding but enchanting quest with poignant reveals in store.‐ Total Film

3/5 48% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) This film just basically forces its audience to be space tourists on a mandatory guided tour.‐

4/5 92% Dunkirk (2017) It's a magnificent movie of staid heroism, utterly opulent in its bleakness. ‐

3/5 68% Cars 3 (2017) A final act plot point shows the only sign that this franchise has matured beyond its original 'heh, talking cars' premise, but it takes a lot of autopiloting to get there.‐

4/5 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) An amazing Spider-Man, a spectacular Spider-Man, and yes, the ultimate Spider-Man.‐

4/5 22% The Book of Henry (2017) I'd rather watch a film that's trying to be a heart-warming tale, mawkish drama and generic cat-and-mouse thriller all at the same time than any of those things individually.‐

4/5 93% Baby Driver (2017) It zips along at a fast pace, cruising on cool characters and a nifty knack for nailing every beat in every scene.‐

3/5 100% Edith Walks (2017) Kötting conjures a certain amateurish charm in an otherwise perplexing film that - ironically - lacks clear direction.‐ Total Film

3/5 100% Destination Unknown (2017) Ferguson's film feels vital in sharing harrowing stories of life in concentration camps, while the message is clear: even 70 years later, these survivors will never be fully free.‐ Total Film

4/5 83% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) If Vol 1 was a mixed tape of great numbers, Vol 2 simply swaps out the songs with like-for-like beats and turns the volume way up.‐

4/5 100% Who's Gonna Love Me Now? (2016) Juggling heartbreaking frankness with uplifting scenes of love and solidarity, this is a sensitive exploration of family, faith and opposing cultures.‐ Total Film

4/5 79% Personal Shopper (2017) Objectively the best performance of Stewart's career. She flits between hollow listlessness and heightened agitation - two behaviours that are well within her discomfort zone‐

4/5 100% The Age of Shadows (2016) Twists and betrayals add spice to a familiar cat-and-mouse tale, while director Kim Jee-woon handles spectacle and drama with equal aplomb.‐ Total Film

4/5 75% Kong: Skull Island (2017) There are so many money-shots in this movie, it has already grossed enough cash to purchase a lifetime's supply of bananas for a real-life King Kong.‐

2/5 81% Patriots Day (2017) At a certain point, consideration becomes clinginess, and Berg holds on so tight to his emotional pandering, it comes at the expense of everything else‐

3/5 72% Sing (2016) Whatever I say in this review, know that my son - easily closer in age to the target demographic than I - rates it 10 out of 10 choo-choo trains or whatever‐

5/5 91% La La Land (2016) The rare kind of spellbinding, wonderful film that has reviewers like me tripping over themselves to find new superlatives for describing it.‐
