Rating Title/Year Author
Hustlers (2019) James Marsh A cross between The Big Short and Showgirls ... a film made by women with great respect ... although some sequences are seductive and sexy, it's never leery ... it's a film about strong women at a time when we need more. EDIT

Bad Boys for Life (2020) James Marsh People don't really want to support maverick police work these days ... but the comedy dynamic is still there, and Adil & Bilall do a fair job of emulating Bay's style of high-octane, flashy action. EDIT

Judy (2019) James Marsh Renée Zellweger does an absolutely incredible job, not only of performing these iconic musical numbers, but of portraying a woman teetering on the brink of complete physical, mental, psychological collapse. EDIT

Marriage Story (2019) James Marsh The most entertaining characters are the two lawyers ... they're both just awful and they're in it for themselves ... I would happily watch an entire film or series just about [them] going at each other. EDIT

Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019) James Marsh It's about women finding a voice, finding the agency ... to sketch out a life and an identity for themselves ... it's beautiful to look at, and beautiful to listen to ... I kinda loved it. EDIT

Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) James Marsh Only in the second half, when it finds its feet and gets back into the groove of what did work in the first film, does it allow itself, and therefore us, to have a good time. EDIT

Bombshell (2019) James Marsh It's rather broadly handled, but I thought it was rather well handled, and the performances are all great. EDIT

Ip Man 4: The Finale (2019) James Marsh This is [Yen's] real flagship franchise, and I think he's done a fantastic job with it ... it's good for the fights but there's a little bit too much superfluous plot going on. EDIT

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) James Marsh The first half of it just feels unnecessary, with lots of wheel-spinning, and then the second half is just a lot of pandering to people who should have been ignored. EDIT

Richard Jewell (2019) James Marsh It's a skilfully made film, there are good, strong performances ... but there is a niggling doubt over exactly what some of Clint Eastwood's motivations for making the film are. EDIT

Little Women (2019) James Marsh It's beautifully realised, and the production design is great, and the costumes are great, and the sense of time and place is great ... everything up there on screen is done incredibly well. EDIT

1917 (2019) James Marsh The sheer practicality of executing this movie is quite phenomenal ... it is a technical tour-de-force. EDIT
