    Rambo: Last Blood Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Lean, efficient and brutal, this is likely the weakest of Rambo series, but at 73, Stallone still deserves some respect, literally levelling the playing field against multiple opponents half his age.

    Ad Astra (IMAX) Review

    by Kumari Tilakawardane
    Brad Pitt – and more specifically his face – star in this melancholy and pensive drama, which explores the great question of space and what mysteries exist out there.

    The Informer Review

    by Kumari Tilakawardane
    An atmospheric crime caper that doesn’t really get much further than its uninspired title, The Informer is at least buoyed by compelling performances from its decent cast.

    Angel Has Fallen Review

    by Cas Harlow
    The sequel that nobody asked for after the last one, Angel Has Fallen, gives Gerald Butler one last shot at delivering old school throwback thrills in the vein of Olympus Has Fallen.

    Boys behaving badly, pre-teen style, in this Seth Rogen/Evan Goldberg-produced adult comedy.

    Dora and the Lost City of Gold Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Arguably better than anybody could have possibly expected from a live action adaptation of the animated kid's show, Dora is a family adventure where the peril never really gets greater than a 6 year old can handle.

    Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Tarantino's 9th is one of the biggest event movies of 2019, a classically-styled and suitably epic ode to Hollywood, riding high on its DiCaprio/Pitt bromance.

    by Andy Bassett
    New versions, unfilmable books, shelved projects, sequels to Box Office flops - what movies that are a bit of an outside bet would you like to see go into production?

    Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Doing what it says on the tin, few will be disappointed by Tango & Cash (2019), even if its ludicrously overlong and arguably a few decades too late.

    The Current War Review

    by Kumari Tilakawardane
    Is a biopic still a biopic when it’s got almost three subjects? The Current War asks this question by accident and throws in a bunch of wacky camera angles and cinematic trickery to confuse things even more.

    The Lion King Review

    by Kumari Tilakawardane
    The latest in the long line of Disney 'live action' remakes, The Lion King is a beautiful film, even if it has all been done before.

    Anna Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Luc Besson's latest hits the Big Screen and it feels like nobody cares - for good reason too - it's not worth seeing even if you've seen absolutely everything else out... twice.

    Midsommar Review

    by Kumari Tilakawardane
    A sun-soaked nightmare from the director of Hereditary that’s as horrifying as it is audacious.

    Spider-Man: Far From Home Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Whilst it might have possibly made for a better start to Phase 4 than an epilogue to Phase 3, Far From Home blends breezy teen road trip with suitably diverting superhero hijinks.

    Escape Plan 3 Review

    by Cas Harlow
    The second sequel to the film that most didn't even know had earned a first provides an hour of filler and a final act peppered with Stallone training for Rambo: Last Blood.

    Netflix's Shaft Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Despite almost two decades having passed since the last failed attempt at rebooting Shaft into a new franchise, the best thing about this second shot from Netflix is still Samuel L. Jackson.

    Robert the Bruce Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Almost a quarter of a century after his character's inglorious mistreatment in Braveheart, Angus MacFadyen returns to the role to right some wrongs, in a sequel nobody ever expected.

    Men in Black: International Review

    by Kumari Tilakawardane
    Yes, they’re back... again, and the only thing that’s alien is fun. The fourth Men in Black film crashes clumsily to earth.

    X-Men: Dark Phoenix Review

    by Cas Harlow
    The last Fox X-Men movie may well involve a trainwreck, but thankfully it isn't one, at least not completely, although it does still undercook one of the best ever comic book storylines.
