5/5 92% Dunkirk (2017) A visceral, nerve-shredding pulse-pounder that needs to be experienced on the biggest screen you can find.‐

3/5 78% The Beguiled (2017) Beautifully made, superbly acted - but also a pale and bloodless remake, that lacks the power to shock.‐

5/5 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) Exciting, suspenseful, emotional, and given a thrillingly subversive edge by the fact that you're actively willing the destruction of humanity.‐

4/5 89% It Comes At Night (2017) A post-apocalyptic survival drama that is claustrophobic, chilling and unbearably tense. ‐

5/5 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Borrowing heavily from John Hughes movies, the witty script ensures that the film succeeds as both high school movie and superhero adventure.‐

4/5 93% Baby Driver (2017) Cleverly blends elements of True Romance and Drive. Its cult status seems assured. ‐

3/5 44% Hampstead (2017) Keaton leans so closely into Annie Hall mannerisms that it's almost possible to read this as a covert revisiting of the character, 40 years later.‐

2/5 15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) At least it's willing to embrace the ridiculousness of it all.‐

3/5 87% Whitney: Can I Be Me (2017) Though the film is both fascinating and informative, you're ultimately left with a nagging sense that the portrait is incomplete.‐

3/5 49% Churchill (2017) It's markedly unusual to see Churchill presented as fallible and wracked with doubt, rather than the fabled master-campaigner.‐

2/5 16% The Mummy (2017) More sub-par Tom Cruise vehicle than entertaining monster movie.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2017
1/5 20% The Shack (2017) Exactly like being trapped in a shack with three smiling, happy-clappy Evangelical types for two and a quarter hours.‐

3/5 89% Norman (Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer) (2017) Ultimately, the film is best viewed as a character study, with Gere's finely honed work ensuring that Norman remains a character worth studying.‐ The List

4/5 92% Wonder Woman (2017) Gadot turns out to be as perfect a fit for the iconic character as Christopher Reeve was for the Man of Steel.‐

2/5 19% Baywatch (2017) This big screen adaptation of the '90s jiggle-fest edges very close to guilty pleasure territory. But it out-stays its welcome - and fails to deliver any big laughs.‐
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
4/5 29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) The most enjoyable sequel so far, thanks to a fresh-off-the-boat directing team and a script that actively strives to recapture the magic of the first film.‐
Read More | Posted May 23, 2017
2/5 20% Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017) The various set-pieces (including an accidentally acquired piglet defecating in the car) never manage to deliver any big laughs and have to settle for being moderately amusing instead.‐ The List

3/5 36% Snatched (2017) Goldie Hawn's first film role in 15 years is charismatic but thankless.‐
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
2/5 28% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) An almost laughable amount of phallic imagery is on display at all times.‐
Read More | Posted May 18, 2017
3/5 91% Mindhorn (2016) An uneven but very funny satire that pokes fun at rubbish TV cops, and actors with bloated egos.‐
Read More | Posted May 5, 2017
2/5 26% Unlocked (2017) Orlando Bloom plays a tattooed, man-bun sporting Cockney burglar. John Malkovich chews so much scenery you fear for the upholstery. At times, this is so bad it's good.‐
Read More | Posted May 3, 2017
5/5 89% Lady Macbeth (2017) Exploring complex themes of oppression, morality and sexuality, this gripping costume drama has provocative modern day resonance.‐

3/5 25% Unforgettable (2017) The film is packed full of hilarious so-bad-it's-good moments. As trashy throwback thrillers go, it's a surprising amount of fun.‐

5/5 86% The Transfiguration (2017) This clever blend of indie coming-of-age drama and horror movie is a terrific debut feature from Michael O'Shea.‐
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2017
4/5 75% The Sense Of An Ending (2017) Thoughtful and quietly moving, The Sense of an Ending is an exploration of the pull of nostalgia, and the selective editing of memory.‐
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2017
5/5 95% The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016) Lushly photographed, dizzyingly erotic thriller-slash-love story that's full of delicious twists and turns.‐

1/5 23% The Hatton Garden Job (2017) It's comfortably one of the worst films of the year so far.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2017
4/5 90% Raw (2017) This chilling and intense coming-of-age horror exerts a powerful grip. Even if you're not especially faint-of-stomach, you'll re-think going out for steak afterwards.‐

4/5 52% The Boss Baby (2017) Transcends its ridiculous-seeming premise to deliver an enjoyable family comedy that's as delightful as it is inventive. Even the fart jokes are adorable.‐
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2017
3/5 17% Man Down (2016) This genre-blending drama about a traumatised soldier may be flawed - but it's impossible to fault Shia LaBeouf's commitment to the lead role.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2017
4/5 44% Ghost in the Shell (2017) Purists worried about Hollywood dumbing down the 1995 anime can relax. Sanders' live-action version is remarkably faithful. And Johansson is on terrific form.‐

4/5 No Score Yet Zipi y Zape y el club de la canica (Zip & Zap and the Marble Gang) (2013) Utterly charming from start to finish, this is a well made, smartly written family adventure with an infectious sense of fun. Don't miss it.‐ The List

3/5 67% Life (2017) In space, no-one can hear you nick the basic set-up from Alien - and throw in bits of Gravity for good measure.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
3/5 44% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) This teen superhero adventure doesn't just trade off fond memories of the 90s TV show. It also wraps itself in a warm blanket of affection for classic 80s teen movies.‐

4/5 99% Get Out (2017) This scathing satire is the perfect horror film for the post-Obama era, taking a razor-sharp scalpel to white liberal attitudes on race.‐

4/5 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) Musical numbers are delivered with proper gusto. The show-stopping Be Our Guest even out-does the original animated version.‐

1/5 0% Wolves at the Door (2016) A deeply distasteful mess.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2017
5/5 91% Elle (2016) At 78, Basic Instinct and Starship Troopers director Paul Verhoeven has lost none of his power to shock. Hitchcock would have been proud of this extraordinary film. ‐

4/5 76% Kong: Skull Island (2017) The script does a great job of quietly undermining the usual action clichés. And there's no tedious love story between the two nominal leads.‐

3/5 18% The Time of Their Lives (2017) The Collinses make an engaging double act and the strength of their performances goes a long way towards papering over some of the script's shortcomings.‐ The List

1/5 26% Fist Fight (2017) If you've ever wanted to see a squeaky-voiced actor get punched in the face, then Fist Fight has your name written all over it.‐

5/5 93% Logan (2017) It's difficult to imagine how this could be improved upon. An unmissable treat for comic fans, but a thoroughly enjoyable thriller in its own right.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2017
3/5 42% A Cure For Wellness (2017) Shutter Island with eels. Gore Verbinski has delivered one of the strangest mainstream studio films in recent memory.‐
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
4/5 98% Moonlight (2016) This is a beautifully made, strikingly acted and powerful drama that has something vital to say about black sexual identity in present-day America.‐
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2017
4/5 83% The Founder (2017) The Founder represents a veritable plunge into darkness. It's impossible to look at Ray Kroc and not see America's complex relationship with capitalism. ‐
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2017
4/5 88% 20th Century Women (2017) Annette Bening was straight-up robbed of an Oscar nod. This is a delight from start to finish, thanks to a warm-hearted script and terrific performances.‐

5/5 92% Toni Erdmann (2016) If you're thinking that maybe life's too short for 162 minutes of German comedy, think again.‐
