9/10 Dunkirk "Arguably Nolan's best film, Dunkirk is a propulsive descent into Hell that celebrates the indomitable human spirit."

4/5 City of Ghosts "This is a harrowing watch, with footage of executions -- the emotional toll on the men is tangible. Yet RBSS is performing an essential duty; it is often the only conduit of reliable news from Raqqa to the wider world."

5/5 Dunkirk "A vivid, heart-pounding, emotional rollercoaster of a film, Dunkirk is also one of the most immersive experiences you could ever wish to endure. But therein lies its genius."

2/5 Scribe (La mécanique de l'ombre) "[A] feeble French John le Carré knock-off."

2.5/4 Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets "The first 36 minutes... is as sharp and spectacular a stretch as you'll see in the movies. Then, the rest of the movie happens, and it's a witless mess."

3/5 Scribe (La mécanique de l'ombre) "Kruithof delivers a no-frills calling card with a political thriller that borrows liberally from the genre's 70s heyday."

The Beguiled "The film's leading women work admirably with what they've been given, but ultimately they're little more than a chain of pretty, but one-dimensional, paper dolls."

5/5 Dunkirk "Ultimately, this is an unsentimentally masterful chronicle of a propaganda victory plucked from the jaws of military disaster."

4/5 Dunkirk "The film is a wonder to experience (especially in Imax), but it's not perfect. For all the technical brilliance, there's something emotionally removed about the storytelling that keeps a viewer at arm's length throughout."

2/5 Monster Island "This surreal but shonky Mexican animation makes the clichéd link between monstrous transformation and adolescence and does absolutely nothing new with it."

C Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets "It's all massively frustrating; whenever an interesting theme is developed, it is stymied by the writing."

Landline "The real surprise is it managed to do something I never thought possible: make me feel nostalgic for the '90's."

3/5 Sammy and Rosie "As messy, jarring and disorientating as the Eighties London in which it's set. Thirty years on, though, it's also a seamy snapshot of a time when bohemian lefties embraced the lower classes and multiculturalism as if they were new albums by Talk Talk."

4/5 Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (Captain Underpants) "A hugely likeable animated film about two cornerstones of childhood: wild imaginations and bottom jokes."

4/4 Dunkirk "The pleasure in the storytelling arc is how elements move swiftly together. Nolan's biggest trick is the film starts out being epic and moves effortlessly to the intimate ...."

2/5 Dunkirk "What it is, essentially, is 106 clamorous minutes of big-screen bombast that's so concerned with its own spectacle and scale that it neglects to deliver the most crucial element -- drama."

1.5/4 Something Like Summer "The film glides superficially, devoid of insight, over the substance of real gay lives."

2.5/4 War for the Planet of the Apes "I let out a visceral trill of delight every time I saw an ape on horseback. It's an unbelievably cool image. If this concludes Reeves's run with the series, deficiencies aside, it'll stand as one of the good ones."

2.5/5 Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets "A beautiful mess. Impresses with visuals and worldbuilding, yet disappoints with story and characters. [Full review in Spanish]"

Dunkirk "His exciting set pieces of sinking ships and aerial dogfights will thrill audiences who head to big Hollywood films for spectacle. But when Nolan gets the subtler moments right, you see something much more."

2.5/4 Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets "Valerian is frenetic, trippy, ludicrous fun. Except for when it's not fun. But then it's fun again! And then not fun! Well...you get the picture."

3/4 The Hero "There are no surprises here, and the whole affair is a bit too modest. But Elliott's voice and his face have a lived-in quality that is unforgettable. The actor makes The Hero an enjoyable, worthy drama."

3.5/4 Dunkirk "So many of us wanted Dunkirk to be truly great. It's too virtuous and not vulgar enough to be great. It's a brilliant film that embraces grandeur but has a tasteful horror of rhetoric."

4/5 Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets "It takes two charismatic actors who have as much fun doing this as you'll have seeing it and sticks them into slam-bang action, gobs of good humor and the eye candy of an effects feast."

7/10 Lady Macbeth "...well done with some fine twists...could even be considered as a unique film noir, because it has most of the characteristics."
