    Netflix's Earthquake Bird Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Another week, another average Netflix production, with this richly appointed Alicia Vikander-starring Ridley Scott-produced Japanese-infused 'drama' slow-burning its way to nowhere.

    Midway Review

    by Kumari Tilakawardane
    For a film in the beloved war movie canon, packed with explosions and stakes and a decent cast, it’s astonishing how dull Midway manages to be.

    Netflix's American Son Review

    by Cas Harlow

    Stephen King's Doctor Sleep Review

    by Kumari Tilakawardane
    In a big year for Stephen King remakes, Doctor Sleep stands out – one of the prolific author’s more recent and lesser-known novels that’s also a sequel to one of his iconic classics, The Shining.

    Netflix's Rattlesnake Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Netflix appears to be hooked on Stephen King thrillers - even the ones not written by him - with this debt-to-the-devil mystery horror a moody diversion.

    Netflix's Dolemite Is My Name Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Touted as the best performance from Eddie Murphy in years, Netflix's latest has already had some Oscar buzz, seeing the once-great star return to the limelight and actually have some fun for a change.

    Terminator: Dark Fate Review

    by Cas Harlow
    With all the lowered expectations from previously being burned, Dark Fate should come as a mostly pleasant surprise; a competent, tense and aggressive Terminator sequel.

    Netflix's Wounds Review

    by Cas Harlow
    With a disconcerting atmosphere and committed performances, it's just a shame that Wounds doesn't ever really develop its effectively creepy 'cursed phone' premise.

    Netflix's Eli Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Attempting high concept 11th hour twist horror, but failing on almost all counts, Netflix's record-breaking release schedule this week hits its nadir.

    Netflix's The Laundromat Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Despite an all-star cast, Steven Soderbergh spends far too much time preaching from the pulpit in this tired lesson on the corruption of big business, forgetting about the story he's trying to tell in the process.

    Zombieland 2: Double Tap Review

    by Kumari Tilakawardane
    Ten years in the making, the stellar Zombieland quartet return for another zombie romp that lacks killer instinct.

    Maleficent: Mistress of Evil Review

    by Cas Harlow
    It's still an unexpected but pleasant surprise to have Angelina Jolie's Maleficent back, but Mistress of Evil muddles a decent enough premise and loses some of its dark magic along the way.

    Gemini Man Review

    by Kumari Tilakawardane
    Packed to the rafters with hi-tech cinematic wizardry and featuring not one but two Will Smiths… that’s really all there is to Ang Lee’s latest foray into futuristic filmmaking.

    Netflix's El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Over a decade after Breaking Bad first landed, and long after it ended with some finality, Netflix's excellent sequel proves there was clearly still some unfinished business to address.

    Netflix's Fractured Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Netflix's latest is a mystery/conspiracy thriller with Sam Worthington looking for his family, who nobody else believes exists.

    Netflix's In the Tall Grass Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Netflix's latest mystery horror comes from Vincenzo "Cube" Natali, returning to maze-like misadventures this time courtesy of Stephen King, but a muddled plot and murky Dolby Vision don't do it any favours.
