    Civil War Movie Review

    by Tom Davies
    Civil War Movie Review
    Civil War absolutely isn't Alex Garland's most ambitious movie, but is it his most successful? A hard-nosed critique of war journalism, this is not the movie promised to you in the trailer...it's much better.

    Oppenheimer (IMAX) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Oppenheimer (IMAX) Movie Review
    Likely to win ALL the awards, even by Academy judges who can't be bothered to sit through it, certainly the only way to watch this level of spectacular sound and fury is on the biggest IMAX screen you can find... UPDATE now available on Sky/Now TV.

    by Mark Costello

    The End We Start From Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    The End We Start From Movie Review
    Jodie Comer takes to The Road for some low-key indie apocalyptic drama that finds contemporary relevance and ground-level threat in a land beset by debilitating floods.

    Kung Fu Panda 4 Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Kung Fu Panda 4 Movie Review
    Sixteen years later, and Jack Black's Dragon Warrior is still going strong... ish, with another belated sequel securing Universal another lucrative half-billion-plus hit.

    Monkey Man Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Monkey Man Movie Review
    Dev "Slumdog" Patel's directorial debut is John Wick infused with Indian culture, as well as progressive counterculture, with Patel on sinewy, unapologetically brutal form.

    Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire (IMAX) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire (IMAX) Movie Review
    Hilariously OTT, Barbenzilla and Bumblekong's latest nonsense is another deliciously silly, visually extravagant excuse for a monster mash-up and bash-up, and is rather surprisingly... fun.

    The First Omen Movie Review

    by Mark Costello
    The First Omen Movie Review
    Managing to buck the trend of modern re/se/prequels to classic horror properties, by actually being worthy of its forebears, The First Omen may be very much style over substance…but what style…

    10 Lives (2024) (Sky) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    10 Lives (2024) (Sky) Movie Review
    Christopher "Duck Duck Goose" Jenkins' sophomore animated feature is an utterly throwaway Sky job that means well, and will at least entertain the little ones, but can't hold a candle - in terms of story or visuals - to the similarly themed Puss in Boots: The Last Wish.

    Wish (Disney+) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Wish (Disney+) Movie Review
    Disney's Centennial celebration imagines up an entire origin story from the Studio's own theme music, weaving 100 years of nostalgia into its every fibre - right down to the classical animation style - but ironically failing to find any magic of its own.

    The Wages of Fear (2024) Netflix Movie Review

    by Tom Davies
    The Wages of Fear (2024) Netflix Movie Review
    Julien Leclercq remakes the 1953 classic for Netflix, but with wages like this, I’d be surprised if you didn’t see Fear shopping at the local food bank.

    Madame Web Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Madame Web Movie Review
    Sony's hilariously misjudged expansion of the Spider-Verse continues with this lazily scripted, incompetently crafted TV pilot of a movie which teasingly teeters on the brink of being so bad it's risibly good, but mostly ends up being resoundingly worthless.

    Anatomy of a Fall (Amazon) Movie Review

    Land of Bad Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Land of Bad Movie Review
    Improbably turning what sounded like a low budget straight-to-video 'lite' version of Bat 21 meets Lone Survivor - replete with a questionable cast - into a minor gem of a military survival thriller, Land of Bad is a genuine surprise winner.

    Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire Movie Review

    by Mark Costello
    Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire Movie Review
    The Ghosts have returned and they need a-bustin’ in Gil Kenan’s follow up to the super-charming and exceedingly lovable Afterlife…which sadly makes all the mistakes Jason Reitman’s film deftly managed to avoid…

    Road House (2024) (Amazon) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Road House (2024) (Amazon) Movie Review
    Doug "Edge of Tomorrow" Liman may be frustrated by this going straight-to-streaming, but Jake Gyllenhaal is absolutely on board for this utterly unabashed 80s remake which totally knows its place, bringing us delicious throwback video rental beat-em-up carnage.

    All of Us Strangers (Disney+) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    All of Us Strangers (Disney+) Movie Review
    Staggeringly heartfelt, Andrew Haigh's All of Us Strangers is a sublime reflection on grief, repression and identity - past and present - a supremely resonant masterwork of quietly profound poignance.

    Fast Charlie (Amazon) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Fast Charlie (Amazon) Movie Review
    Brosnan and Baccarin afford this cheap low-rent 'thriller' from Dead Calm's Phillip Noyce a distinctly YMMV justification for sitting through its amateurish hijinks.
