Rating Title/Year Author
3.5/5 Papi chulo (2018) Deirdre Molumby It is certainly unlike any other film you'll see this year but don't go into it expecting something uplifting. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
Always Be My Maybe (2019) Deirdre Molumby When Keanu Reeves comes in, Dear God. The comedy is just next level. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
4.5/5 Booksmart (2019) Deirdre Molumby It's got heart and it's f**king hilarious. Now how many comedies can you say that about? EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
2/5 The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019) Deirdre Molumby Kids and families will go see Secret Life of Pets 2 regardless of what reviews say, but there's genuinely no depth or endurance here. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
Someone Great (2019) Deirdre Molumby A beautiful tribute to the hilarity and healing power of female friendship. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
4/5 Rocketman (2019) Deirdre Molumby Even if it doesn't always quite hit the mark, and can get very cheesy, you come to admire its consistent, determined vision and boldness. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
3/5 Aladdin (2019) Deirdre Molumby You get the sense that either Guy Ritchie wasn't sure what he was doing or Disney execs insisted on the film being as bright and showy as possible to distract from its flaws. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
3/5 The Hustle (2019) Deirdre Molumby Fun for a movie night out with the girls. The costume design and lavishly decorated French locations are delicious while Anne Hathaway proves her comedic prowess yet again. EDIT
Posted May 13, 2019
Wine Country (2019) Deirdre Molumby It's like watching your mom and her friends get drunk while you're sober. Good for them that they're letting loose and finding everything so funny. But you don't get it. EDIT
Posted May 13, 2019
The Silence (2019) Deirdre Molumby Whether you're a horror fan who enjoys jump scares, gore, monsters, or a sharp social commentary, Netflix movie The Silence will satisfy none. EDIT
Posted May 13, 2019
4/5 The Kindergarten Teacher (2018) Deirdre Molumby In arguably one of the best performances of her career, Gyllenhaal is the key to the emotional, increasingly disturbing nature of The Kindergarten Teacher. EDIT
Posted May 13, 2019
3/5 Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) Deirdre Molumby If there's one positive thing to be said for Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, it's the stellar performances from Zac Efron and Lily Collins. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
1.5/5 The Curse of La Llorona (2019) Deirdre Molumby If you're looking for something scary (as you'd expect from, well, a horror), you won't find it here. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3.5/5 Tolkien (2019) Deirdre Molumby All in all, Tolkien makes for an enjoyable and interesting biopic which while not extraordinary, leaves you with a satisfying sense of comfort. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
5/5 Eighth Grade (2018) Deirdre Molumby Now and again there comes a film that you relate to so readily that watching it is a deeply moving, wholesome experience. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
2.5/5 Little (2019) Deirdre Molumby Marsai Martin's a natural comic and extremely charismatic; it's the script that lets her down. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3.5/5 Mid90s (2018) Deirdre Molumby The directorial debut of Jonah Hill isn't perfect, but it's solid and enjoyable. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3/5 Five Feet Apart (2019) Deirdre Molumby There are parts that are very Hallmark movie and schmaltzy. And yet you do end up being swept along with the emotions in it because the acting is so note-perfect. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3/5 Greta (2018) Deirdre Molumby Flawed as it is, Greta is generally entertaining and all too aware of how camp it is. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3/5 How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) Deirdre Molumby This latest installment is particularly well-suited for families and younger audiences - children will get a greater sense of humour and wonder out of it than you will. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
2.5/5 What Men Want (2019) Deirdre Molumby It's just not as funny, progressive or challenging as the concept - a gender swapped remake of the Mel Gibson starrer What Women Want - would have allowed it to be. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3/5 The Kid Who Would Be King (2019) Deirdre Molumby Kids are the target audience here - adults will likely become bored, particularly during Act 3. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
4/5 Instant Family (2018) Deirdre Molumby Thanks to strong performances, an incisive script and smart direction, Instant Family is a sweet, touching and endearing movie. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
4/5 The Sisters Brothers (2018) Deirdre Molumby Brilliantly acted, darkly funny, surprisingly touching. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3.5/5 The Aftermath (2019) Deirdre Molumby The classical Hollywood feel of The Aftermath is charming. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
2/5 Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Deirdre Molumby One thinks of Ghost in the Shell, Robocop, Blade Runner or Ready Player One while watching it. Yet it fails to capture any of those films' sense of wonder. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
Isn't It Romantic (2019) Deirdre Molumby Rebel Wilson is the funniest here she has been in years. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3.5/5 Glass (2019) Deirdre Molumby The term 'hot mess' readily applies to Glass, whereby as muddled and hard to pin down as it is, it's generally entertaining. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
5/5 A Star Is Born (2018) Deirdre Molumby Heart-breaking but hopeful, this is the new definitive Hollywood story. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3.5/5 Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018) Deirdre Molumby As our lead and reject of the American dream, Melissa McCarthy is astounding. This is easily her best dramatic role to date. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
4/5 Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Deirdre Molumby It ends on a high note in every sense of the word, and by the end, you really don't want it to stop now. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
4/5 Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) Deirdre Molumby As far as sequels go, there is a lot to love, and its final word on the evolution of friendships will likely have older audiences crying even harder than the kids. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3.5/5 Mary Poppins Returns (2018) Deirdre Molumby From the opening number of 'Lovely London Sky', which is both lovely in nature and in name, Mary Poppins Returns basically ticks all the boxes for the needs of musical lovers. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3.5/5 Deadpool 2 (2018) Deirdre Molumby With an amusing soundtrack, good sense of fun and action, and zippy, zany comedic quality adapted from the first movie, audiences will leave the cinema exalted. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
Annihilation (2018) Deirdre Molumby Through its ambience, which meticulously blends dread and wonder, Annihilation skillfully builds up to a super trippy, creepy, existentialist crescendo. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
5/5 Tully (2018) Deirdre Molumby It's a movie that reminds us of the emotional and physical magnitude of what moms do. Rarely has motherhood been portrayed in such a courageous, unblinking way. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3/5 Ocean's 8 (2018) Deirdre Molumby Ocean's 8 can feel like it's trying a little too hard to be cool. For the most part though, it's fine. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
5/5 BlacKkKlansman (2018) Deirdre Molumby Spike Lee infuses BlacKkKlansman with modernism and a pointed contemporary commentary that holds you long after its final documentary moments, and that epic panning shot. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
4/5 Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) Deirdre Molumby Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is cheesy, predictable, completely lacking in any subtlety, and an absolute delight. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
4/5 Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Deirdre Molumby It's fun, light-hearted, cute, and very funny. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3.5/5 Unsane (2018) Deirdre Molumby It makes for a good thriller, and even when it does verge into B-movie territory, it does so in a very self-aware way. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3.5/5 Second Act (2018) Deirdre Molumby There's something fun and sweet and innocent about it that you can't help but enjoy. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
2.5/5 Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) Deirdre Molumby It feels just like the second film in an over-extended film series. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
4.5/5 Sorry to Bother You (2018) Deirdre Molumby Sorry to Bother You is unique, insane, and a riot from start to finish. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3/5 A Wrinkle in Time (2018) Deirdre Molumby You know those laser pointers that cats go nuts for? That's a bit what A Wrinkle in Time feels like. It's shiny, bright, harmless and facile. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
4/5 Dr. Seuss' The Grinch (2018) Deirdre Molumby The Grinch will leave you with a warm, fuzzy feeling that you just can't shake. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3/5 The Equalizer 2 (2018) Deirdre Molumby One can't help but feel that The Equaliser 2 could have exploited the taxi driver set-up in a more intense manner akin to Collateral. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2019
4/5 Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Deirdre Molumby Thor: Ragnarok works because it's something you haven't seen before, and that is down to one person - director Taika Waititi. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2019
3.5/5 The Florida Project (2017) Deirdre Molumby The Florida Project is sweet, funny, and extremely easy to lose yourself in. EDIT
Posted May 4, 2019
4/5 Wonder Woman (2017) Deirdre Molumby Wonder Woman is awesome and awe-inspiring. An all-round captivating piece of cinema. EDIT
