88% Green Book (2018) In spite of its minor issues, Green Book is a rich, entertaining and frequently powerful piece bound to be embraced by audiences when its release comes. A real, unexpected triumph.‐ Film Inquiry

94% Widows (2018) Widows manages to feel like old-school filmmaking but it is fantastically contemporary in its themes and refreshing female angle.‐ Film Inquiry

No Score Yet Two Plains & a Fancy (2018) I've no doubt in trusting that Two Plains & A Fancy will find a niche audience - it has all the makings of a small-scale cult classic of sorts - but this uncategorisable farce is too scattershot and messy to come together as something enjoyable.‐ Film Inquiry

90% A Star Is Born (2018) As well as turning Gaga into the next hot big screen commodity, Cooper crafts a film that shines brightest when it needs to, ending on a stirring, emotionally-captivating and indescribably powerful note.‐ Film Inquiry

29% The King of Thieves (2018) Wearing its influences on its sleeve, The King of Thieves decides to cash in on the genre's previous glories while forgetting to bring any sense of style or grit to proceedings itself, leading to a disappointingly rote and conventional crime-caper.‐ Film Inquiry

70% The Children Act (2018) he Children Act works strongest as a tight character study of the central female figure, elevated to higher ground by the astonishing lead performance.‐ Film Inquiry

46% Marrowbone (2018) Sánchez is far superior as a director than he is a writer in this instance, with a bold vision he valiantly tries to execute - but he is ultimately held back by his own script.‐ Film Inquiry

63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) It's nihilistic for the sake of being nihilistic and lacks any grounding that could help cultivate an emotional core to anchor yourself to.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
53% Book Club (2018) There are notably few surprises and it employs conventions like they're going out of fashion, but it will do what it set out to do for its mature audience - entertain with its silliness and comfort with its warmth.‐ Film Inquiry

37% Life of the Party (2018) More fun than funny, Life of the Party may be one of the weaker comedies to come from Melissa McCarthy in a leading role, but it's entertaining, pleasant and harmless enough if you've been taken by McCarthy's previous work with Ben Falcone.‐ Film Inquiry

94% Beast (2018) Beast is a breed of its own, a gritty psychological-mystery with a brilliantly dark, pulsating and atmospheric heart. ‐ Film Inquiry

81% Ghost Stories (2018) On the whole, Ghost Stories is a rather underwhelming horror in a genre that has really started to step it up in the past couple of years.‐ Film Inquiry

47% Red Sparrow (2018) At its best, it is solidly engaging, blistering and intense filmmaking; at its worst, well, in a post award season schedule, it's still one of the better, more original releases in the cinematic landscape at the moment.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2018
91% Human Flow (2017) It's vividly and powerfully illustrated, with Weiwei's striking aesthetic sensibilities pouring through but it fails to conjure the method of storytelling that would pay the topic the attention it deserves.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2018
80% The Party (2018) Clocking in at just 71 minutes, The Party packs in more laughs, satire and poignancy than most films could dream, turning its tragicomedy into a roaring success.‐ Film Inquiry

72% The Babysitter (2017) Because of some impressive performances, solid direction and bold decisions, it's difficult not to have fun with Netflix's latest creation.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
86% American Made (2017) American Made is as middle-of-the-road as they come; if the weather is particular depressing and you genuinely have nothing better to do - we've all been there - think about giving American Made a go.‐ Film Inquiry

No Score Yet The Family I Had (2017) Emotionally exhausting, The Family I Had is a powerful documentary. It is devastatingly sad but with a rare glimmer of hope - moving forward may be difficult but if anyone can inspire hope in the face of difficulty, it's Charity Lee.‐ Film Inquiry

80% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) No matter your final decision on the heart-stopping, nerve-shredding, gut-clenching The Killing of a Sacred Deer, one thing is for sure - you won't forget it in a hurry.‐ Film Inquiry

52% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Kingsman: The Golden Circle is unfocused, unrestrained and lacking a control that prevents it (finale aside) from reaching the heights of its predecessor - but it is just about fun enough.‐ Film Inquiry

80% Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool (2017) Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool is an insightful and touching love story.‐ Film Inquiry

60% Jungle (2017) The direction is fine but the script and pacing is creaky to say the least, ultimately abandoning Jungle up the creek without a paddle.‐ Film Inquiry

100% Kingdom of Us (2017) It's both delicate and confrontational, exploring the family unit, reactions to grief and identity with no-holds-barred access...Kingdom of Us is essential viewing‐ Film Inquiry

85% Loving Vincent (2017) It is a phenomenal technical accomplishment, elevated to dazzling heights by a stunning cast, gorgeous score and touching story that unleashes the artist inside us all.‐ Film Inquiry

80% Hell House LLC (2015) With a terrific concept at hand, if slightly undone by a weaker screenplay, Hell House LLC is definitely a decent watch in the run-up to Halloween.‐ Film Inquiry

34% American Assassin (2017) Whether the world needs another male spy-cum-agent is another question altogether, but American Assassin is entertaining enough for this franchise to live another day.‐ Film Inquiry

66% Victoria & Abdul (2017) Victoria & Abdul is a warming and twee example of film-making for a very particular demographic, but it is definitely one of the better examples of its genre.‐ Film Inquiry

98% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2017) My Life As A Courgette isn't a kid's film - it's a family film, fit for viewing together and evoking discussion, reflection and consideration. ‐ Film Inquiry

18% The House (2017) Despite two talented leads, The House suffers from a script that doesn't utilize their talents, ultimately becoming forgettable as a result.‐ Film Inquiry

48% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Though visually enticing, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is bogged down by a bloated script and poorly written characters.‐ Film Inquiry

8% The Emoji Movie (2017) Plotless, joyless and cash-grabbing, The Emoji Movie deserves the brunt of our wrath because it showcases everything wrong with Hollywood.‐ Film Inquiry

69% The Ice Cream Truck (2017) Megan Freels Johnston is rather promising as a director, providing a visual for the film as delightful as your usual truck's treats. ‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2017
No Score Yet Cut Shoot Kill (2017) Cut Shoot Kill is a mostly well-made indie horror, with a solid cast and direction, even though restraint would provide us with a tighter example of filmmaking on a budget.‐ Film Inquiry

87% Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (Captain Underpants) (2017) Surprisingly, and unlike a pair of the titular heroes y-fronts, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie never really rubs you up the wrong way. ‐ Film Inquiry

90% A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove) (2016) We have the Academy to thank for bringing this warmly humorous Swedish gem to our attention - it's one of the year's most likeable films.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2017
No Score Yet Something Like Summer (2017) There is more to like in Something Like Summer than dislike but it doesn't make it easy: it feels sincere, but its issue with plot and characters drag it down considerably. ‐ Film Inquiry

44% Hampstead (2017) Hampstead offers nothing new in its tired-out genre, serving up uninspired writing and bland direction against a British backdrop.‐ Film Inquiry

75% My Cousin Rachel (2017) It's a real tug of war between what does and doesn't work and, unfortunately, My Cousin Rachel doesn't win.‐ Film Inquiry

19% Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017) Diary of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul is one of the worst films of the year so far and I don't think it will have much competition.‐ Film Inquiry

No Score Yet People (2016) People is an utterly fascinating watch. ‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted May 30, 2017
No Score Yet In the Shadow of Iris (2017) There is nothing new on display in In The Shadow Of Iris, and what it does offer plunges into something so disappointing that you can only consider it an unfortunate misfire.‐ Film Inquiry

40% The Most Hated Woman In America (2017) The Most Hated Woman in America appears chained to the path of mediocrity, as is now typical with Netflix's original films.‐ Film Inquiry
