      3/5
      Leo (2023) Some haphazard plotting aside, Leo is funny, charming and surprisingly moving. Nice songs, too. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      Wish (2023) The songs are knotted, entirely forgettable, and the iffy watercolour/computer animation hybrid gives Wish an awkward, unfinished look. Pity. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      May December (2023) A hell of a film. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      3/5
      Saltburn (2023) Fun to watch, difficult to love, Emerald Fennell’s film is lively, ambitious, a dizzying treat for its opening hour. The second hour, however, is another story entirely, and Saltburn eventually collapses in on itself. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      Fingernails (2023) This witty, tender film casts quite the spell, and Buckley and Ahmed are wonderful together. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      1/5
      The Marvels (2023) This extraordinarily untidy film was recalled for reshoots earlier in the year, and it shows. Poorly edited, difficult to follow, The Marvels is barely in a releasable state. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      Retribution (2023) Think Speed, minus the charm, thrills and suspense. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      Pain Hustlers (2023) Pain Hustlers aims high and means well, but Yates directs this annoyingly untidy film like it’s The Wolf of Wall Street. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)
      Read More | Posted Nov 03, 2023
      Milli Vanilli (2023) Korem’s film is something of a bonkers cautionary tale, an extraordinary snapshot of a different time, a different world. - Irish Independent

      Killers of the Flower Moon (2023) A ginormous film -- but you’ll be glad you watched it. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      The Burial (2023) [Jamie Foxx] is in splendid form in this snappy, crowd-pleasing legal drama from director and co-writer Maggie Betts. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      3/5
      The Old Oak (2023) A cast of non-professional actors provide steady support -- and though The Old Oak veers dangerously close to preachy, sentimental melodrama, it comes from a good place and tells an important story. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)
      Read More | Posted Oct 05, 2023
      3/5
      No One Will Save You (2023) It lays on too many ideas in a frantic third act, making it hard to follow and near-impossible to digest. We cannot, however, fault its ambition. Duffield is on to something here, and a tremendous Dever just about holds it together. Half a great sci-fi. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      Ballywalter (2022) Kerslake is every bit as good as you’d expect; Kielty is a revelation. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      Past Lives (2023) This gorgeous, life-affirming feature is one of the best I’ve seen this year. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      The Equalizer 3 (2023) That’s enough equalizing now, thank you very much. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)
      Read More | Posted Sep 08, 2023
      3/5
      You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah (2023) It’s a little rough around the edges, a tad rusty in the humour department -- but director Sammi Cohen manages a charming, good-natured set-up. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)
      Read More | Posted Sep 08, 2023
      2/5
      The Blackening (2022) Nice cast -- killer ideas, too, but we expected more from this creaky, socially conscious chiller. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      2/5
      T.I.M. (2023) Nice work from Farren who fully commits to the role of a sinister robot. Alas, our human friends behave like one-dimensional soap characters. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      3/5
      The Future Tense (2022) With The Future Tense, Irish filmmakers Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor, aka Desperate Optimists, deliver a clever, complex documentary about the idea of home. Where is it, what does it mean, who are we without one? - Sunday Independent (Ireland)
      Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2023
      3/5
      You Hurt My Feelings (2023) Nicely acted, it’s a film for grown-ups, the kind that makes you think about everything you’ve ever said to protect and, indeed, support your loved ones. Try not to cringe. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)
      Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2023
      3/5
      L'immensità (2022) Crialese’s film doesn’t always hit the mark. It’s a little slow, a tad unsure of itself. The performances, however, are on another level. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)
      Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2023
      2/5
      The Beanie Bubble (2023) As a drama, The Beanie Bubble lacks depth and conviction; as a comedy, it needs more jokes. How much you enjoy this film depends on your capacity for momentum-killing flashbacks and flashforwards. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      3/5
      Barbie (2023) [Barbie is] two hours of dizzying, occasionally dazzling ideas, squished and squashed and stuck together without any real shape, sense or structure. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)
      Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2023
      4/5
      Puffin Rock and the New Friends (2023) The story is almost as simple as the sublime, storybook-like animation... Throw in a delightful score, thrilling plot twists and funny, educational narration, and you have yourself a winner. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      The Out-Laws (2023) The punchlines (a Bond quip here, a Shrek joke there) are spectacularly unfunny -- the action sequences are barely coherent. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (2023) Here is Indy – still thriving, still globe-trotting, still getting into fist fights with rotten Nazis. Is that a bad thing? Absolutely not. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      2/5
      Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken (2023) Nice ideas – a decent cast too – but Ruby Gillman is visually bland and is constantly explaining itself. We expected better. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      No Hard Feelings (2023) If I wasn’t on the job, I’d have walked out. An unmitigated disaster. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      1/5
      Transformers: Rise of the Beasts (2023) Eventually it runs out of ideas and a) turns one of its human characters into a superhero, and b) teases the most spectacularly stupid sequel idea in the history of cinema. A tiresome, toxic exercise in mainstream filmmaking. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      Carmen (2022) Benjamin Millepied’s Carmen would be an easier film to like if it knew what it was doing. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      2/5
      The Little Mermaid (2023) Like many before it, Marshall’s film takes a snappy animated caper and stretches it beyond breaking point. But two of our leads do decent, commendable work. I suppose that’s something, right?​ - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      Dead Shot (2023) This clumsy, crooked thriller at least has the decency to employ a capable ensemble. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      4/5
      Lakelands (2022) Beautifully shot and impeccably acted, this isn’t just another Irish film, it’s the best I’ve seen this year. It deserves everything good that comes its way. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      3/5
      Unlikely Pilgrimage Of Harold Fry, The (2023) Directed by Hettie Macdonald, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry wrestles with conflicting tones and a disorganised premise. But its heart is in the right place, and our leads make it watchable. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      4/5
      Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (2023) Gunn signs off on his epic trilogy with a devastating side tale that explains how Rocket the yappy racoon got his voice. It nearly broke me. Well played, everyone. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      Peter Pan & Wendy (2023) Mr Barrie’s enduring bedtime yarn is ripe for an awesome cinematic adaptation. Sadly, this isn’t it. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      Barber (2023) Barber is awkwardly scripted and struggles to mine compelling drama from a rich set-up. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      4/5
      Evil Dead Rise (2023) This being an Evil Dead chapter, a touch more humour might have been nice, but that's a minor quibble. These films haven't always delivered the goods -- Cronin's eerie, blood-soaked joint is one of the good ones. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      Missing (2023) Good fun for an hour, but the novelty wears thin, and that final third is positively bananas, in all the worst ways. Approach with caution. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      2/5
      Renfield (2023) We’re constantly interrupted by some clumsy crime yarn about a cop and a gangster and their complicated family lives. That’s not what we came for... we don’t deserve Nicolas Cage -- and he deserves better than whatever this is. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (2023) This shouldn't work quite as well as it does. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      4/5
      The Five Devils (2022) Our parents had lives before we came along. A horrifying concept for some, I’m sure, but a solid starting point for co-writer and director Léa Mysius’s beguiling, often brilliant French drama. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      A Good Person (2023) This tonally awkward melodrama means well but rarely, if ever, finds its feet. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      2/5
      Marlowe (2022) Despite good intentions, Jordan’s stilted, sluggish and largely suspenseless detective yarn is all over the shop. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)
      Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2023
      2/5
      Shazam! Fury of the Gods (2023) The first Shazam! outing was a hoot. It successfully combined the endearing, goofball energy of Penny Marshall’s Big with the plucky sci-fi charm of Richard Donner’s Superman. In contrast, this bulky, effects-heavy follow-up is a joyless mess. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      Champions (2023) An enthusiastic Harrelson makes it work, and this creaky yet inherently uplifting display is fortunate to have him. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

      Scream VI (2023) The dreaded Ghostface has, indeed, relocated to Manhattan for another round of gruesome slasher carnage. Does it enhance the story at all? Don’t be daft. - Sunday Independent (Ireland)
