1/5 24% The Snowman (2017) As Scandi-crime thrillers go, The Snowman is something of a wash-out, lacking anything resembling thrills, chills or suspense. It is, in a word, abominable.‐

3/5 50% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Consistently entertaining, but it never quite hits the heights achieved by its predecessor. Except for Elton John, that is. ‐

3/5 50% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) The Golden Circle lacks the novelty of the first film and doesn't have quite as much in the way of charm, but there's enough here to ensure that fans won't be disappointed.‐ The List

3/5 68% Victoria & Abdul (2017) Judi Dench's performance rules over the production just as surely as Victoria rules over her subjects.‐

8/10 85% In Syria (Insyriated) (2017) Van Leeuw's direction is extremely effective throughout, making frequent use of tight close-ups to accentuate the claustrophobia.‐

1/5 0% Stratton (2017) This wannabee Bourne is a copper-bottomed disaster from beginning to end. Don't hold your breath for a Stratton sequel, because as a franchise, this is dead in the water.‐

6/10 84% Tom of Finland (2017) This respectful, beautifully made biopic ... is both entertaining and informative, but it's also curiously restrained and occasionally undermined by some peculiar editing.‐

4/5 84% Godzilla Resurgence (Shin Godzilla) (2016) The fact that the film features a fictional U.S. President preparing to nuke Japan is a frankly jaw-dropping coincidence. It's both hilarious and terrifying.‐

3/5 49% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Rihanna's performance is an encapsulation of the entire film. It has style, imagination and energy to burn. But disappoints when it comes to dialogue, pacing and plot.‐

4/5 99% City of Ghosts (2017) Brutal and upsetting - but necessarily so.‐

5/5 92% Dunkirk (2017) A visceral, nerve-shredding pulse-pounder that needs to be experienced on the biggest screen you can find.‐
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2017
3/5 78% The Beguiled (2017) Beautifully made, superbly acted - but also a pale and bloodless remake, that lacks the power to shock.‐
