5/5 100% One Cut of the Dead (Kamera o tomeru na!) (2017) Ueda's film goes on to indulge [its] curiosity in endless head-spinningly clever ways - turning a riotous genre treat into a full-hearted love-letter to both filmmaking and film-watching alike.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 100% The Blood of Wolves (Korou no chi) (2018) Just as the film pulls no punches when it comes to violence, it withholds the tension-breaking respite of pastiche.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

3/5 48% Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween (2018) Goosebumps 2 is a lively and colourful ghost train ride, with some well-judged scares that would have been at home in its 1980s Amblin forerunners, such as The Goonies and Young Sherlock Holmes.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

1/5 29% Venom (2018) Sony Pictures appear to have lavished a nine-figure sum on, and are now hoping to establish an entire cinematic universe on the back of, a character who looks like someone drizzled Creme Egg filling onto a bin bag.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

2/5 33% The Predator (2018) "The sequel to group one, only stupider" is how one soldier describes the squad, in one of the rare self-referential jokes here that actually lands. But owning it doesn't excuse it.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

3/5 74% Dragged Across Concrete (2018) What Zahler has essentially done is put a 15-minute mid-blockbuster set-piece on the rack and stretched it out until its cartilage pops.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2018
3/5 38% Charlie Says (2018) This is an innovative, occasionally provocative, often frustrating film, but one whose perspectives on guilt and victimhood offer a new angle on a notorious case.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 64% Peterloo (2019) There is a danger of filing Peterloo away as an "important film" - but it is also a complex, rousing and rewarding one for anyone prepared to meet it on its own unapologetically ambitious terms.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 88% First Man (2018) Wisely, Chazelle has opted to leave spectacle to the blockbusters and instead aims for awe - which is related, but different, and harder to pull off. ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2018
3/5 71% Christopher Robin (2018) The film is a joy to spend time in, rather than with - its pleasures are largely Pinterest-like - although McGregor throws himself gamely into the title role...‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2018
4/5 94% The Guardians (Les Gardiennes) (2018) Beauvois's vision of the period is totally convincing, and his depiction of hardscrabble farm life rings with a quiet vibrancy...‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

2/5 14% Damascus Cover (2018) Damascus Cover was the last film Hurt made - but it isn't worth seeking out for that reason, or many others.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
4/5 91% Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018) Teen Titans Go! To The Movies may be unflaggingly daft, but outright silliness is rarely this smart.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
4/5 92% A Prayer Before Dawn (2018) Cole... plays Moore with a clamped-down, concentrated ferocity: the character is no roguish anti-hero, but a frantic knot of sinew, to whom we don't relate so much as just cling onto for dear life.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 81% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) No sun-spangled Aegean vista goes un-ogled. But again, as before, it somehow works.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) A gorgeously curated scrapbook of sharply observed household comedy, sublimely staged action, a pinch of Chuck Jones-era slapstick, and enough modernist eye candy to induce a sugar coma in design buffs.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
2/5 46% Skyscraper (2018) For a film with an incredibly straightforward premise - effectively, man goes upstairs - Skyscraper trips over itself an awful lot.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2018
3/5 80% The More You Ignore Me (2018) An appealing, bittersweetly funny tale of a Morrissey-mad teenage girl whose life is regularly derailed by her mother's worsening mental state.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
