47% Tell It to the Bees (2019) As surprising as the ending is, it is a little too late for what feels an all too predictable film. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

95% If Beale Street Could Talk (2019) Yes, you've seen this film before but what lifts this and makes it a decent watch is the way the female characters are portrayed on screen, neither exotic or functional but real and complex. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2019
74% On the Basis of Sex (2019) Instead, On The Basis Of Sex is a formulaic biopic which is clearly endorsed because the real Ruth Bader Ginsberg turns up a the end. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

90% A Star Is Born (2018) This version stands on its own. It is enjoyable romp and there are some emotional moments that deliver a jolt but that is it. I wish Hollywood studios would stop with the remakes. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

85% A Simple Favor (2018) Save your popcorn money unless you're in need of a giggle and into a whole new genre of thriller comedy. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT

87% The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) The Miseducation of Cameron Post aspires to be a lot of things but the script lets it down. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
73% The Children Act (2018) The solitary act that could have saved this film from itself would have been to have chosen a screenwriter to write the script rather than allow the author, Ian McEwan, to adapt it for the screen. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT

No Score Yet Wasp (2014) Set against the serene, hot summer backdrop of Southern France this menage à trios blisters into view providing a refreshing look at gay relationships, friendship and trust. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

14% A Haunting In Cawdor (2016) It is an interesting take on Macbeth - not an adaption but the Scottish play serves as an inspiration to help with the narrative. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
46% Irrational Man (2015) Irrational Man is 'new' Woody Allen think Vicky Christina Barcelona with a glimmer of vintage but not enough to make it memorable. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
80% Macbeth (2015) Not even the majestic and mesmeric performance of Michael Fassbender can rescue this film from the madness it descends into. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
83% The Walk (2015) You may not rush out after the screening to learn to walk a tightrope but, it will leave you thinking everything is possible and it starts with a single step. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

50% Tomorrowland (2015) Ultimately, however, a blockbuster summer film needs to be made like a good sponge cake: equal parts of jokes, action and story and this film for me didn't measure up in all areas. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
50% San Andreas (2015) San Andreas is a visual assault on the eyes and ears for its entire 112 minutes running time that leaves you thinking the disaster was in making the film. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
80% Man Up (2015) Man Up is supposedly a rom-com but, it's so formulaic and full of cliches, by the end of the 88 mins you're left thinking Man Down, Man Down! - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
67% Everyone's Going To Die (2013) I had this sense of dread that this was going to another gangster style shoot them-up, but this film is witty, raw and unexpectedly charming. Everyone's Going To Die is one of the reasons why British independent cinema is hot right now. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

64% Sleeping with Other People (2015) Sleeping With Other People is from the writer and director of The Bachelorette and tries to be adventurous but in the end leaves you thinking sleeping with other people gets tiresome quickly. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

65% Learning To Drive (2015) Isabel Coixet brings us an insightful, refreshing and mercifully cliché-free look at a woman in her early 60s learning to start over through learning to drive. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

75% 13 Minutes (Elser) (2017) It is refreshing, heart breaking but, surprisingly, uplifting to know that individuals like Georg Elser existed and hopefully still exist. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
26% The Benefactor (2016) This is an audacious film about narcissism and digging below the surface of the "good time party guy" to see the demons that lie beneath. However, the film's weakness is that it's a singular movie when it needed to be a dual protagonist movie. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
83% Beyond the Lights (2014) It is an interesting film but the romantic sub-plot detracted from what could have been an interesting independent film. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
97% 45 Years (2015) Andrew Haigh manages to not only show how couples remember their joint history differently but also the inevitable betrayal that individuals feel when they realise that what they thought had happened didn't happen in the way they thought. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
No Score Yet Bereave (2015) The film is slow and melodic just like the poetry that Garvey recites to individuals during the film. If I had to describe it would be a character study of what individuals go through: laughter, joy, death and bereavement. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

17% Scottish Mussel (2016) For the most part I found it an enjoyable way to spend 93 minutes but be warned the script is pretty flimsy... - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
90% Love & Mercy (2015) This biopic is well worth watching because it is unlike any you have ever scene. It is not formulaic and deftly manages to avoid the clichés that so many biopics embrace - rags to riches etc. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

63% Iona (2015) Beautiful, savage and beguiling describes both the island and the central protagonist (stunning performance by Ruth Negga) of this film by writer/director Scott Graham. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
98% Inside Out (2015) Inside Out is the family film of the year. It's funny, innovative and intelligent in bringing to life those voices in your head: joy, sadness, fear, anger and disgust in 93 glorious minutes. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
62% Barney Thomson (The Legend of Barney Thomson) (2016) Whilst the ending is rather silly and possibly too neat, it is a rather enjoyable film so bring your blackest humour to watch this. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
76% Suite Française (2015) A note perfect glimpse of life in occupied France during the Second World War: the horrors, desperation and love that grows from a shared passion of music. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
35% Under Milk Wood (2015) This 2015 version of Under Milk Wood with Rhys Ifans taking on both the role of the narrator and Captain Cat is in a word captivating. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

No Score Yet Xingdong daihao: Sun Zongshan (Salute! Sun Yat-Sen) (2015) Salute! Sun Yat-Sen starts off as if it was a schoolboy error. However, stick with it as this is a gem of dramatic comedy coupled with a strong socio-economic narrative that could be called: "Education Is A Right." - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
93% The Treatment (De Behandeling) (2014) The Treatment is a visceral, engaging and gut wrenching thriller of the first degree that will keep you on the edge of your seat right until the very end. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2018
92% Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) Not much happens in this film and it really isn't for anyone who is hoping to see a Coen brothers' film along the lines of No Country for Old Men or Fargo. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
