5/5 98% Lucky (2017) Lucky turned out to be one of Stanton's final performances, and, as in his life, in Lucky we are left with a breathtakingly beautiful body of work to remember him by.‐ CineVue

3/5 22% The Happytime Murders (2018) Where The Happytime Murders excels is in its humour, because it's very, very funny. But more than that, it's filthy. Utterly, gloriously, unapologetically, deeply, darkly, sexually filthy. ‐ CineVue

4/5 61% Yardie (2018) There are powerful performances by the cast, particularly Ameen; Idris has a deft hand working with actors, bringing out sharp focus and intensity in them all. ‐ CineVue

4/5 78% The Escape (2018) With some subtle commentary on class, as well as gender politics, The Escape is an impressive portrayal of existential angst and the disintegration of self, and Arterton's performance is breathtaking.‐ CineVue

4/5 100% Apostasy (2017) A remarkable and authentic mediation on religion, belief, family and loss.‐ CineVue

4/5 57% Hotel Artemis (2018) Hotel Artemis is a bold, loud, ambitious film, far cleverer than the bog-standard summer blockbuster fare, and with sharp humour and driving suspense it makes this pulpy-sci fi thriller a very fun watch.‐ CineVue

3/5 25% 7 Days in Entebbe (2018) Ultimately, whilst it's not a 100% accurate representation of the real life Operation Entebbe, this account based on historian Saul David's book of the raid is a thrilling and captivating ride.‐ CineVue

4/5 41% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) Ava DuVernay has done much more with the source material, and the result is a beautiful work full of hope and aspirations.‐ CineVue

3/5 51% Tomb Raider (2018) [Alicia] Vikander is a good arse-kicking Croft, but with this Lara still seeking daddy's approval, her heroism is undermined, and ultimately the film is weaker for it.‐ CineVue

4/5 44% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) Pacific Rim: Uprising does not disappoint: it does what it says on the tin. And boy, does this sequel deliver.‐ CineVue

2/5 15% Mute (2018) Mute is let down by a weak and bland script. Hopefully his next endeavour focuses more on story and less on dated Tarantino-style humour and sexist objectification.‐ CineVue

5/5 97% Black Panther (2018) Whilst a Marvel story through and through, fitting perfectly into the MCU post-Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther stands alone as a masterpiece of filmmaking.‐ CineVue

5/5 96% Step (2017) It's a celebration of courage, triumph and redemption, and of a groundbreaking school which has helped many young women to escape the grim statistics of a city affected by poverty, crime and gun violence.‐ CineVue

4/5 98% Quest (2017) The finished documentary is a meditative study in the everyday realities of poverty, gun crime, and racism, whilst offering a moving portrayal of people united by love and affection. ‐ CineVue

4/5 84% Detroit (2017) The cinematography (by Barry Ackroyd) - much of it hand held - feels both urgent and exhausting. It's as harrowing as documentary war footage and reminiscent of Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker.‐ CineVue

4/5 83% Patti Cake$ (2017) Patti Cake$ is an inspiring film full of heart and with a banging soundtrack. ‐ CineVue

4/5 93% My Pure Land (2017) In My Pure Land, the lead roles aren't just "strong female characters": these are actual women who have fought real-life battles - and won.‐ CineVue

3/5 39% Brimstone (2017) What does work in the film is the slow, torturous sense of foreboding.‐ CineVue

3/5 50% The Glass Castle (2017) Overall the powerful performances made it an emotional watch.‐ CineVue

4/5 59% Jungle (2017) It's an incredibly gripping tale, the suspense and terror made more so by the knowledge this is a true story. ‐ CineVue

4/5 66% Breathe (2017) [Breathe] is worth seeing both for Garfield's and Foy's impressive performances as well as Serkis' delicate and tender direction.‐ CineVue

4/5 87% Brakes (2016) The story is so charming and the ensemble cast so great, that Grower's observations of romance amongst the disconnect of London life makes Brakes a genuinely pleasurable and heartfelt watch.‐ CineVue
