4/5 Miss Juneteenth (2020) Kelechi Ehenulo Miss Juneteenth is a beautifully poignant and intimate journey of a Black woman's soul. EDIT

1/5 Tesla (2020) Kelechi Ehenulo It's not to say Tesla's story shouldn't be told, but here you have to do a lot of compensating to find some level of compelling enjoyment. EDIT

4/5 This Gun for Hire (1942) Kelechi Ehenulo There's a lot to unpack...And perhaps this is the very reason why This Gun for Hire has endured for as long as it has. It's a complex noir where rooting for a 'hero' doesn't have a clear line of sight. EDIT

2.5/5 Greta (2018) Kelechi Ehenulo Somewhere in its ninety-eight minute-runtime there's an outstanding film sparked by good intentions, but it's buried underneath some diabolical plotting. EDIT

4/5 A Private War (2018) Kelechi Ehenulo ...somewhere out there, someone forgot to announce Pike's Oscar nomination. EDIT

4/5 Vice (2018) Kelechi Ehenulo Depending on your outlook will ultimately determine the enjoyment of Vice. If you can accept the tonal shifts with its Hollywood filmmaking conventions, Jesse Plemon's narration and fourth wall breaks, then Vice is a wildly inventive biopic. EDIT

5/5 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) Kelechi Ehenulo Universal in its approach by leaving a beaming smile across your face, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse beautifully reminds you why you love Spider-Man in the first place. EDIT

4.5/5 A Fish Called Wanda (1988) Kelechi Ehenulo If anything, what Cleese and director Charles Crichton celebrate with A Fish Called Wanda is the art of the ensemble. Getting the pieces together is difficult, but when it works, it's a masterpiece. EDIT

4/5 Tropic Thunder (2008) Kelechi Ehenulo Tropic Thunder exaggerates on its eccentricity, but it's always dealt with a sense of satirical truth. That in itself develops the film beyond any throwaway comedy that is trying too hard to find that punchline. EDIT

5/5 Young Frankenstein (1974) Kelechi Ehenulo Young Frankenstein is sharply littered with slapstick humour, double entendre meanings and witty dialogue, thanks to the efforts of Wilder and Brooks. EDIT

4/5 Beverly Hills Cop II (1987) Kelechi Ehenulo Sometimes sequels never live up to the original. As much as Beverly Hills Cop II echoes that sentiment, the late, great director Tony Scott delivers a film that encapsulates the pinnacle of 80s films in terms of culture, style, fashion and action. EDIT

5/5 Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) Kelechi Ehenulo While other Spielberg films get recognisable attention (and rightly so), Close Encounters should be ranked amongst his greatest and underrated masterpieces. EDIT
