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)

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)

4/5 93% 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 80% 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)

5/5 97% Ex Libris: New York Public Library (2017) For the last half-century, Wiseman has never stopped looking outward. But this could be his unwitting self-portrait.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
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 48% 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)

1/5 21% Terminal (2018) A film that makes the viewer feel as if their brain has been extracted through their nostrils with a drinking straw: an inane and relentlessly boring future noir...‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2018
3/5 52% The First Purge (2018) The First Purge is as visually hair-raising as its predecessors... and a brilliantly achieved transition from a hard-edged, social-realist visual style in the film's opening act to the overtly John Carpenter-esque gloss and throb of Purge Night itself.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2018
4/5 73% Adrift (2018) Baltasar Kormákur's film artfully marries an absorbing account of their fight to stay alive with the love story that makes it worth a damn. ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2018
4/5 64% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) Quite honestly, it's a thrill to see a mid-budget thriller crafted along such mature, unflashy lines.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2018
2/5 50% Stanley A Man Of Variety (2016) For such a slight production it feels desperately stodgy and effortful: lots of variety, perhaps, but little spice of life.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2018
5/5 89% Hereditary (2018) Being blindsided by fright might be fun in the moment, but it's the scares you can see coming that last.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 98% The Tale (2018) Even viewed from the sofa, it makes an IMAX-sized impact.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2018
2/5 51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Exactly why would anyone visit a dinosaur-infested island for a fifth time, when all four previous excursions had ended in limb-gobbling pandemonium?‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

3/5 58% The Man Who Killed Don Quixote (2018) Even when the film feels like a circuitous, effortful mess, it's often an intentional one...‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

5/5 73% Capernaum (Capharnaüm) (2018) A social-realist blockbuster - fired by furious compassion and teeming with sorrow, yet strewn with diamond-shards of beauty, wit and hope.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 69% Dogman (2018) Dogman unfolds its relatively straightforward story with both thrilling style and serious moral force: it's a sensation judged on either bark or bite.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted May 21, 2018
5/5 85% The Wild Pear Tree (Ahlat agaci) (2018) Sensual and lyrical, tremendously well acted, heavy in visual and verbal metaphor, and so ablaze with pastoral beauty that the hillsides and forests seem to glow with their own amber light.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted May 21, 2018
4/5 71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Solo, the latest entry in the Lucasfilm franchise, brings Star Wars back to earth with a Millennium Falcon-rattling bump.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 97% BlacKkKlansman (2018) Following 2015's terrifically lively Chi-Raq and Lee's TV spin-off of She's Gotta Have It, this is yet more comeback fuel, attacking the spectre of white supremacism in America with mic-dropping aplenty...‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
2/5 52% The House That Jack Built (2018) Two and a half hours of self-reflexive torture porn with an entire McDonald's warehouse of chips on its shoulder, and a handful of genuinely provocative ideas which, exasperatingly, go nowhere much.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
5/5 100% Shoplifters (Manbiki kazoku) (2018) Shoplifters is compassionate, socially conscious filmmaking with a piercing intelligence that is pure Kore-eda. This is a film that steals in and snatches your heart.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
4/5 85% Climax (2018) Plays something like Pasolini's stomach-churning Salò by way of the old Busby Berkeley extravaganza Gold Diggers of 1933.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
5/5 97% Mandy (2018) Mandy exists in its own supremely unnerving horror dimension.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted May 13, 2018
4/5 81% Sorry Angel (Plaire, aimer et courir vite) (2018) Sorry Angel deserves to find an international audience, not least because the whole thing is just so drippingly French, all breezy beauty and smoke-wreathed, bookish wit.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

3/5 100% Arctic (2018) This is Penna's debut feature, and he has set himself a high bar which he just about scrapes over, with Mikkelsen giving the entire project a super-strength leg up.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
2/5 25% 7 Days in Entebbe (2018) The film's determination to remain politically even-handed robs much of the drama of any sense of urgency or purpose.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted May 10, 2018
3/5 48% Everybody Knows (Todos lo saben) (2018) You go to a Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem film for the chemistry, but this one feels like mathematics.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted May 9, 2018
5/5 86% Mary and The Witch's Flower (2018) This art-form has long been thought to have reached its twilight years, but Yonebayashi's film brims over with the bounce and spark of childhood.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted May 5, 2018
4/5 94% Beast (2018) At its best, it could be Bergerac reimagined by Nicolas Roeg, with its tangled character psychologies and great shudders of dread that seem to ring through the soil underfoot.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2018
4/5 79% The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (2018) Every location in this irresistible romantic mystery is like a little mini-break for the soul, every costume and piece of set-dressing nibble-ably gorgeous, and every character a pleasure to keep company with, even the rotters.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2018
1/5 16% The Titan (2018) Steals ideas from films as diverse as The Fly, Avatar, Soylent Green and Prometheus before fumbling every last one of them, and looks as if it was shot in a show home for 99.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2018
2/5 14% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) Truth or Dare is the kind of film that must have seemed like a good idea at the time, but its initially appealing premise - what if a demon possessed a drinking game? - quickly falls to pieces under its own self-generated confusions.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2018
4/5 52% Rampage (2018) And it is exactly how these big, thick destruction films should be done: the script is boisterously funny, the action sequences have real flair and sweep, and the central human-primate friendship is even quite moving at points.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2018
4/5 84% Journeyman (2017) Considine resists the usual narrative urges to bring down any kind of judgement or redemption, or to "make sense" of Matty's story beyond the sense he himself can make of it.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2018
2/5 43% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) Watching del Toro's film felt like playing with toys as big as skyscrapers, but everything about this successor feels trinket-sized.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2018
3/5 73% Ready Player One (2018) Its vision of a world fixated on cultural nursery food has a spiky topicality and an occasionally piercing satirical bite.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2018
3/5 41% Mary Magdalene (2018) It goes straight for the forehead: it is a brow-furrower and a temple-rubber, best mulled over at a remove.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 18, 2018
4/5 84% The Square (2017) Östlund at his best can have his cake and push it in your face.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 18, 2018
2/5 63% Peter Rabbit (2018) The new Peter Rabbit film could only really be improved with the addition of one thing: unfortunately, it's myxomatosis.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
2/5 0% Walk Like a Panther (2018) It is all so relentlessly toe-curling that at the end I found myself walking out of the cinema like Mr Tumnus, gingerly picking his way through the Narnian snowpack.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
5/5 95% Sweet Country (2018) It has a power that makes the cinema shake.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
2/5 47% Red Sparrow (2018) It has the soul of a washing machine instruction manual. I can't recall when I last saw a film that works so hard to stop you enjoying it.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2018
1/5 13% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) This is a film in which one of the more emotionally detailed performances is given by a product-placement Audi.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2018
4/5 97% Black Panther (2018) You can see [Michael B.] Jordan offhandedly weighing the line in his mind like a rock he's about to lob: it's one of many nicely judged moments of performance here from a wildly appealing ensemble cast without a weak link.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
