Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) Keeva Stratton It is aimed at a slightly older audience than the first film, and there are a few adult jokes and scary moments to be aware of, but all in all, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle delivers a welcome return. EDIT

2.5/5 Wonder Wheel (2017) Keeva Stratton Woody Allen's films are always hit or miss. Sadly, Wonder Wheel falls firmly in the latter. EDIT

2/5 The Disaster Artist (2017) Keeva Stratton Perhaps this one is just for the die-hard fans, burning to know how such a bad film was ever brought to life. Clearly, I'm not one of them. EDIT

3/5 Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) Keeva Stratton I'm sure many people will find this a bittersweet drama a lovely way to explore the origins of Winnie the Pooh. EDIT

3.5/5 The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) Keeva Stratton It's not going to be a film to many people's tastes, but if you like your character explorations dark, and enjoy a little meddling with normal emotions, this could be the film for you. EDIT

3.5/5 Murder on the Orient Express (2017) Keeva Stratton Kenneth Branagh takes on both the famous detective and the role of director, but thankfully excels at both. His Poirot is sharp, funny and just eccentric enough. EDIT

3/5 A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) Keeva Stratton Like most sequels, the film fails to reach the heights of its predecessor, but offers enough fun to make it worth your while. EDIT
Posted Nov 2, 2017
3/5 Suburbicon (2017) Keeva Stratton In true Coen Brothers style, it borders on the obscene and the absurd, in order to make insightful observations about the human condition. EDIT
Posted Oct 26, 2017
3.5/5 The Only Living Boy in New York (2017) Keeva Stratton If you enjoy films that are more an observation on life, you'll love this one. It's simple and warm, and just a very pleasant way to spend a few hours experiencing life and the world through another's eyes. EDIT

4.5/5 Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Keeva Stratton Ryan Gosling seems born for this hybrid role. His general monotone detachment works especially well here, and the subtle nuances he shows fits perfectly into the world first etched by Harrison Ford. EDIT

4.5/5 I Am Not Your Negro (2016) Keeva Stratton While this is an intellectual film, and a very discomfiting one, it is a film that all should experience. It's an eye-opener, and it's brilliantly piercing. EDIT
Posted Sep 27, 2017
2.5/5 Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Keeva Stratton Kingsman: The Golden Circle will soon be forgotten. But, if you are after some light and at times a quite humorous spy parody, and you've got almost two and a half hours to spare, then give it a go. EDIT

Posted Sep 15, 2017
Elizabeth (1998) Keeva Stratton With her power constantly challenged by the state and the church, and with powerful men conspiring against her at every turn, it's little wonder that the strength of the first Elizabeth to rule England is legendary. EDIT
Posted Sep 15, 2017
Thelma & Louise (1991) Keeva Stratton The spirit of Thelma and Louise was one of freedom, which still resonates today. EDIT
Posted Sep 15, 2017
The Accused (1988) Keeva Stratton This performance didn't just win an Oscar. It won the hearts of every woman who has ever had to endure the horror of assault and the continued injustice of having to fight against prejudice and a legal system steeped in patriarchy, to be heard. EDIT

Posted Sep 15, 2017

Posted Sep 15, 2017

Posted Sep 15, 2017
4/5 Concussion (2015) Keeva Stratton Don't let the sports theme deter you from this intense drama. It's compelling viewing from start to finish. EDIT
Posted Sep 15, 2017
3/5 Hail, Caesar! (2016) Keeva Stratton Visually impressive, yet lacking the sharpness of writing for which the Coen brothers have become known, Hail, Caeser! is a film of stars, but by no means a star film. EDIT
Posted Sep 15, 2017
4/5 A Bigger Splash (2015) Keeva Stratton [A] powerful portrayal of a woman torn between her current and former lover, sexuality, desire and authentic identity. EDIT

2/5 Mother's Day (2016) Keeva Stratton If you like your films light and bright, without pause for any of the authentically raw emotions that would naturally be associated with any one of these story lines, then go on, take your mum and go see Mother's Day. EDIT
Posted Sep 15, 2017
4/5 The First Monday in May (2016) Keeva Stratton Intelligent, inspiring and insightful, this is a thought provoking celebration of the at times difficult juncture between high fashion and cultural appropriation. EDIT

3/5 Bastille Day (2016) Keeva Stratton As far as action films go, the raised expectations of the first half of the film arguably heighten the disappointment of the clichéd finale. EDIT
Posted Sep 15, 2017
4/5 The Meddler (2015) Keeva Stratton [Susan] Sarandon is sublime. EDIT
Posted Sep 15, 2017
3/5 Me Before You (2016) Keeva Stratton Hopefully this film will open the door to many more stories that explore-and through increased representation, normalise-having a disability. EDIT
Posted Sep 15, 2017
4/5 Mustang (2015) Keeva Stratton [Deniz Gamze] Ergüven, with her first feature film, has given voice to many young girls struggling to enjoy basic freedoms. EDIT
