5/5 Mosul (2019) Josh Wilding Matthew Michael Carnahan makes a stellar directorial debut with Mosul, a hard-hitting, must-see movie which sees star Suhail Dabbach deliver an Oscar-worthy performance which it would be a crime to overlook. EDIT

4/5 LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special (2020) Josh Wilding The closest thing we're getting to Episode X, The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special isn't perfect, but it is a fun, fan-pleasing return to a Galaxy Far, Far Away, and a solid tribute to this storied franchise. EDIT
Posted Nov 16, 2020
3/5 The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run (2020) Josh Wilding The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run isn't greater than the sum of its parts, but it's still a fun adventure for fans of all-ages, and worth watching for Keanu Reeves' wonderfully weird Sage. EDIT
Posted Nov 5, 2020
3.5/5 Spell (2020) Josh Wilding Part-Misery, Part-The Hills Have Eyes, Spell occasionally plays it too safe, but has some legit "Oh, sh*t!" moments for horror fans and a powerful lead performance from the excellent Omari Hardwick. EDIT
Posted Oct 28, 2020
4/5 The True Adventures of Wolfboy (2019) Josh Wilding The True Adventures of Wolfboy is a wonderful, emotional coming-of-age adventure with a compelling premise, and a beautiful performance from Sophie Giannamore which promises to put her on the map in a big way. EDIT
Posted Oct 26, 2020
5/5 Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (2020) Josh Wilding Offensive, hilarious, and a movie perfect for the madness of 2020, Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm features Sacha Baron Cohen on top form and an incredible star making performance from Maria Bakalova. EDIT
Posted Oct 23, 2020
4/5 Roald Dahl's The Witches (2020) Josh Wilding The Witches is a visual delight, with Octavia Spencer and Anne Hathaway on top form. Despite being a little too dark in places, this latest adaptation of the story without a doubt does Roald Dahl's work justice. EDIT
Posted Oct 21, 2020
3/5 Batman: Death in the Family (2020) Josh Wilding There's plenty of fun to be had with this interactive movie, and while reused footage and familiar shorts make it feel like there's been some corner cutting, Batman: Death in the Family delivers plenty of bang for your buck. EDIT
Posted Oct 21, 2020
5/5 Love and Monsters (2020) Josh Wilding Love and Monsters does for monster movies what Zombieland did for zombies...but better! With a likeable cast, a strong premise, a lot of heart, and some of the coolest monster designs we've seen, this is a must-see. EDIT
Posted Oct 14, 2020
5/5 Spider-Man 2 (2004) Josh Wilding A groundbreaking, epic masterpiece, Spider-Man 2 sees Sam Raimi continue to make great use of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's classic stories to deliver the rare perfect sequel. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2020
2/5 Henchmen (2018) Josh Wilding Henchman fails to take advantage of its unique premise and doesn't feature the same quality visuals as other animated offerings, but an A-List voice cast and entertaining gags mean kids won't struggle to get invested in this quirky, colourful world. EDIT
Posted Oct 6, 2020
5/5 Spontaneous (2020) Josh Wilding A beautiful, bloody love story, Spontaneous proves that Katherine Langford is one of the most talented actresses working today, while director Brian Duffield delivers the sort of charming, uplifting tale we all need right now. EDIT
Posted Sep 24, 2020
3/5 Enola Holmes (2020) Josh Wilding Despite a bloated, mostly uninteresting mystery, Enola Holmes is saved by a phenomenal performance from Millie Bobby Brown and an unforgettable take on Sherlock Holmes courtesy of Henry Cavill. EDIT
Posted Sep 16, 2020
4/5 The Devil All the Time (2020) Josh Wilding The Devil All The Time is a powerful, moving piece of storytelling, bolstered with incredible performances that make it easy to overlook the odd underwritten character and material that's occasionally too heavy hitting and grim. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2020
4/5 Mulan (2020) Josh Wilding A stunning and authentic new take on this iconic character, Mulan's villain is a weak point, but the uplifting, action-packed live-action remake is a journey worth taking and comes cheap at the price for $29.99. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2020
3/5 The New Mutants (2020) Josh Wilding The New Mutants fails as a horror film, but compared to Dark Phoenix, it's a huge upgrade, and the young cast deliver in a way that ensure these characters get the big screen treatment they deserve...even when the movie lets them down. EDIT
Posted Sep 1, 2020
4/5 Superman: Man of Tomorrow (2020) Josh Wilding Superman: Man of Tomorrow would have benefited from delving a little deeper into certain themes and characters, but it proves to be an exciting, visually pleasing new take on the Man of Steel which successfully freshens up his origin story. EDIT
Posted Aug 24, 2020
3.5/5 The One and Only Ivan (2020) Josh Wilding It's not necessarily the best original release to hit Disney+, but The One and Only Ivan is the perfect family film to watch with your kids, even if it does only address some important issues on a surface level. EDIT
Posted Aug 21, 2020
3.5/5 Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons (2020) Josh Wilding A solid entry into the DC Animated Universe library, Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons - The Movie may be a little rough around the edges, but the bloody, explosive action should keep fans hooked. EDIT
Posted Aug 14, 2020
3/5 Project Power (2020) Josh Wilding Project Power boasts superb performances from Jamie Foxx and Dominique Fishback, but fails to live up to its potential and mostly squanders a unique and exciting premise despite some strong visuals and clever ideas. EDIT
Posted Aug 14, 2020
4/5 Relic (2020) Josh Wilding Compelling, suspenseful, and downright terrifying in places, Relic is a movie with a lot to say, and establishes Natalie Erika James as a filmmaker to watch in future. EDIT
Posted Jul 3, 2020
5/5 Batman Returns (1992) Josh Wilding Tim Burton's Batman Returns is a masterpiece, and the tour de force performances from the trio of Michael Keaton, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Danny DeVito are nothing short of iconic. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2020
4/5 Batman (1989) Josh Wilding Like Gotham City, Batman is a little rough at times, but Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson's wonderfully weird performances (and Tim Burton's unique vision for the DC Universe) mean it deserves to be remembered as a classic. EDIT
Posted Jun 28, 2020
2/5 Artemis Fowl (2020) Josh Wilding Lara McDonnell delivers a breakout performance, and Kenneth Branagh does an admirable job creating this fantasy world, but it's still not enough to save this mediocre and muddled adaptation of Artemis Fowl. EDIT
Posted Jun 12, 2020
4/5 Justice League Dark: Apokolips War (2020) Josh Wilding A bloody, R-Rated romp, Justice League Dark: Apokolips War serves as a fittingly epic finale to this era of stories, and boasts a downright unmissable performance from Matt Ryan as Constantine. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2020
3/5 SCOOB! (2020) Josh Wilding A better Dick Dastardly story than Scooby-Doo caper, Scoob! will definitely entertain the kids, but would have benefited from spending more time with the adorable "Baby Scoob." EDIT
Posted May 15, 2020
5/5 Capone (2020) Josh Wilding Tom Hardy delivers a transformative performance which stands among his best, while director Josh Trank's return to filmmaking is a triumph in Capone, an unmissable examination of Fonzo's final year on Earth. EDIT
Posted May 11, 2020
5/5 Extraction (2020) Josh Wilding Extraction features a Chris Hemsworth more badass than Bond and more brutal than Bourne, and Sam Hargrave's debut feature will hopefully serve as a launching platform for this to be an action-packed new franchise on Netflix. EDIT
Posted Apr 24, 2020
1.5/5 Bloodshot (2020) Josh Wilding Despite some enjoyable action scenes, Bloodshot fails to bring anything new to the superhero genre, and Valiant's wannabe MCU is already off to a disappointing and disastrous start (Vin Diesel, meanwhile, needs to stick to Fast & Furious). EDIT
Posted Mar 24, 2020
3/5 The Hunt (2020) Josh Wilding The Hunt belongs to the amazing Betty Gilpin, and while it delivers some big shocks and thrilling moments, it's not quite as controversial as you might have been led to believe. EDIT
Posted Mar 20, 2020
3.5/5 Spenser Confidential (2020) Josh Wilding A fun if somewhat forgettable ride, Mark Wahlberg and Winston Duke steal the show in Spencer Confidential, and we definitely wouldn't say no to getting to watch this duo solve more mysteries in the not too distant future. EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2020
2.5/5 Blumhouse's Fantasy Island (2020) Josh Wilding This take on the classic TV series boasts some fun twists, but isn't quite bold enough to leave a lasting impact. Still, there's potential for future stories, and a ticket to Fantasy Island does offer one of the most twisted trips of 2020. EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2020
5/5 The Invisible Man (2020) Josh Wilding The first must-see horror movie of 2020, The Invisible Man is destined to be a classic, and Elizabeth Moss' incredible performance proves to be impossible to tear your eyes from. EDIT
Posted Feb 29, 2020
5/5 Onward (2020) Josh Wilding Onward is a masterpiece, and an unmissable fantasy adventure from Pixar. Stars Chris Pratt and Tom Holland steal the show, and this is a vibrant, wonderfully exciting world we definitely hope to return to. EDIT
Posted Feb 29, 2020
4/5 Pokémon the Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution (2019) Josh Wilding It doesn't reinvent the wheel, but Mewtwo Strikes Back - Evolution looks phenomenal thanks to its updated visuals, and the action-packed and epic battles help make this the perfect Pokémon movie for fans. EDIT
Posted Feb 27, 2020
4/5 The Call of the Wild (2020) Josh Wilding A perfect film for dog lovers and a heartwarming adventure in its own right, The Call of the Wild features a wonderfully understated performance from Harrison Ford, and is a ride definitely worth taking. EDIT
Posted Feb 22, 2020
4/5 Superman: Red Son (2020) Josh Wilding With a strong story and a stellar cast, Superman: Red Son features complex and compelling takes on characters like Superman and Lex Luthor which help put it up there with classics like Under The Red Hood and The Killing Joke. EDIT
Posted Feb 20, 2020
4/5 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) Josh Wilding Despite a few minor flaws, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is a superb (and suitably epic) addition to Peter Jackson's past adaptations of Tolkien's work. See it in 3D and 48fps for the ultimate experience. EDIT
Posted Feb 15, 2020
3/5 The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) Josh Wilding A flawed but still solid Spider-Man movie which delivers plenty of spectacular moments to keep comic book fans happy. However, a few too many unanswered questions stop it from living up to that "Amazing" title. EDIT
Posted Feb 15, 2020
5/5 Marvel's the Avengers (2012) Josh Wilding Clever, funny, emotional, and downright amazing; The Avengers is a spectacle which demands repeat viewings. Joss Whedon has delivered what is quite simply an epic comic book movie masterpiece. EDIT
Posted Feb 15, 2020
5/5 The Dark Knight Rises (2012) Josh Wilding The Dark Knight Rises delivers a satisfying and emotional conclusion to a trilogy which will go down in history as one of the best ever. This is Christopher Nolan's crowning achievement and a perfect Batman film. EDIT
Posted Feb 15, 2020
5/5 The Dark Knight (2008) Josh Wilding A masterpiece. Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight is not only one of the greatest comic book movies you'll ever see, but also one of the best films of all-time. EDIT
Posted Feb 15, 2020
4/5 Batman Begins (2005) Josh Wilding Batman Begins is easily one of the best films featuring the iconic DC Comics superhero, but far from perfect, despite telling what may just end up being the definitive big screen origin story for the Dark Knight. EDIT
Posted Feb 15, 2020
3/5 Man of Steel (2013) Josh Wilding It may not have lived up to the hype, but Man of Steel is still the best modern Superman movie, and well worth checking out even if the screenplay delivers its fair share of disappointments. Still, this feels like a solid opening chapter from Zack Snyder. EDIT
Posted Feb 15, 2020
5/5 Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) Josh Wilding James Gunn has taken a group of characters that the majority didn't care about two years ago and made them guaranteed fan favourites in a movie that's not only one of the most awesome Marvel movies yet, but also 2014's best. EDIT
Posted Feb 15, 2020
4/5 X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) Josh Wilding Despite being plagued by some familiar problems in Bryan Singer's X-Men movies, this thrilling time-travelling adventure combines the casts of two eras of the franchise for possibly the best instalment yet. EDIT
Posted Feb 15, 2020
1/5 The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) Josh Wilding With appalling dialogue, slapstick humour, some bizarre aesthetics, and cheesy moments aplenty (Peter's Spider-Man theme ringtone or Electro beating Spidey up to the tune of "Incy Wincy Spider"), this is the Batman & Robin of the Spider-Man franchise. EDIT
Posted Feb 15, 2020
4/5 Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) Josh Wilding Sonic the Hedgehog is an awesome adventure perfect for fans of all-ages, and this definitely isn't a franchise we want it to be "Game Over" for, for a very long time to come (especially after a couple of unmissable post-credits scenes). EDIT
Posted Feb 15, 2020
5/5 Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Josh Wilding Better than Deadpool, Birds of Prey delivers the Harley Quinn adventure fans have spent years waiting for and is one of the best DC Comics movies to date. EDIT
Posted Feb 7, 2020
4/5 1917 (2019) Josh Wilding A stunning technical achievement, 1917 might just be Sam Mendes' best film yet but this well choreographed series of events play out too neatly to ensure the horrors of war will leave a lasting impact. EDIT
