Glass offers answers and brings the trilogy neatly to a largely successful close, without completely wrapping things up in a neat bow.

Mary Poppins Returns (2018)
A warm, funny and cuddly family movie that's truly for everyone, and is a definite must-see for the Christmas season.
Posted Dec 13, 2018
Aquaman is a flawed but thoroughly entertaining adventure movie and certainly one of the strongest instalments so far in the inconsistent Worlds of DC franchise.
Posted Dec 12, 2018
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse proves definitively that there's more life in the old arachnid yet - and creative and surprising ways of approaching the superhero genre. If it isn't the best Spider-Man movie of all time, it's certainly up there.

Perhaps the most impressive thing you could say about Bumblebee is that it actually leaves you wanting another Transformers movie.

Anna and the Apocalypse (2018)
Anna and the Apocalypse manages to bring together all of its elements into a winning blend of heart, humour and huge musical numbers, making it a must-see Christmas movie.

Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018)
Wreck-It Ralph 2 takes aim at all sections of the web and largely succeeds in being a fun, touching and relevant animation for fans of the original and newcomers alike.

Far from being salacious or gratuitous, Cam is an absolutely chilling, thought-provoking and sex-positive delve into the world of webcam porn.
Posted Nov 13, 2018
As a middle film in a five-part series, it sometimes struggles under the pressure of juggling numerous storylines and manoeuvring its cast into place for later movies.

Unless you don't remember what it's like to be so young with a head full of daydreams, you'll be happy to be carried off into the gorgeous Australian sunset.

The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018)
Anchored by Foy's captivating performance, the movie overcomes some notable flaws to suggest there's plenty of promise in this take on Salander.
Posted Nov 1, 2018
The Others (2001)
The film has something for everyone. On the one hand it works very well as a simple scary movie, but on the other it is also a refreshingly thoughtful and masterfully-crafted ghost story.

Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)
Fortunately, the film comes to life any time that Queen take to the stage, thanks to dynamic staging and dedicated performances from all four stars.

Bad Times at the El Royale (2018)
If you want to enjoy some talented actors getting their noir on, this is the smart genre piece for you.
Posted Oct 12, 2018
Green and his co-writers have come up with a terrific slasher that could have just as much impact on a new generation as the original did back in 1978. It's that good.
Posted Oct 9, 2018
The tone of this movie is all over the place, and it's the inconsistencies rather than the absence of Tom Holland in a starring role that are Venom's real problem.

A Simple Favor (2018)
Where Gone Girl was cynical and often nasty, A Simple Favour is its playful cousin.
Posted Sep 17, 2018
A Star Is Born (2018)
Although the path that A Star is Born treads is well worn, there's a raw honesty to the central relationship that Cooper taps into here, elevating the material far beyond the Glitters of this world by bringing out the very best in both himself and Gaga.
Posted Sep 8, 2018
The Predator (2018)
The Predator is a flawed actioner, but a strong cast and some Shane Black magic give it a sparkle that has been lacking from recent attempts to revive the killer aliens.
Posted Sep 7, 2018
The Nun (2018)
Having featured in some of the creepiest sequences in the series so far, a scary spin-off seemed like a no-brainer... but the result sadly has nun of the finesse of Wan's main films.
Posted Sep 5, 2018
First Man (2018)
Ryan Gosling might be the hero of First Man, but the star that shines brightest in these moments is Claire Foy, firing up like the rockets that threaten to take Armstrong away from his family for good.
Posted Aug 29, 2018
Lee's latest is a rollercoaster that is laugh-out-loud when it isn't shocking you into stunned silence.
Posted Aug 14, 2018
With impeccable stuntwork and crisp direction, Fallout delivers intense and thrilling set pieces that pack a punch with a weight and realism that few other blockbusters can match.
Posted Jul 13, 2018
The latest in a string of adequate if uninspired action disaster movies fronted by Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.
Posted Jul 12, 2018
Ocean's 8 (2018)
It's fun, but not fantastic.
Posted Jun 18, 2018
Forget the 'scarier than The Exorcist' line (whatever that means) that Hereditary has been tagged with - this is a movie that lives up to the hype on its own terms.
Posted Jun 8, 2018
The initial joy of Fallen Kingdom's action extravaganza is tempered by the smaller-scale feel of its second half, even as a strong ending suggests another evolution in this storyline. All of which balances out into a perfectly enjoyable franchise entry...
Posted Jun 5, 2018
Bang The Drum Slowly (1973)
Packed with powerfully emotional moments, but the use of the title song in the closing moments is a guaranteed tear-jerker.
Posted May 30, 2018
Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)
Howard raises his game here, speeding us through unusual landscapes and top-notch set pieces.
Posted May 30, 2018
Leave No Trace (2018)
Judging by both her talent and the Debra Granik seal of approval, we would say that Thomasin McKenzie is one to watch out for.
Posted May 24, 2018
Deadpool 2 (2018)
Deadpool 2 has as much heart as the original, and the humour is more consistent. And while we wondered whether Wade Wilson's brand of comedy had had its day, the series has moved with the times and feels as relevant and contemporary as it could be.
Posted May 14, 2018
Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
Never boring, visually impressive, but ultimately rather depressing and unsatisfying, Infinity War will leave you wanting more. But not necessarily in the best way.
Posted Apr 24, 2018
A Quiet Place (2018)
Efficient, effective, exhausting, it's the scariest horror of the year so far.
Posted Apr 10, 2018
Ready Player One (2018)
It's a paean to pop culture, a love letter to the '80s and a glorious, good-hearted adventure that will please kids and remind grown-ups how they felt watching Spielberg's early works the first time around.
Posted Mar 20, 2018
Tomb Raider (2018)
Lara Croft is actually the worst thing about her own movie.
Posted Mar 14, 2018
Red Sparrow (2018)
Red Sparrow is a good-looking, well performed, somewhat worthy espionage thriller that's hard to recommend to anyone.
Posted Mar 13, 2018
The whole film is populated by people you don't believe or care at all about, behaving in ways that don't make sense against a cheap-looking sci-fi-by-numbers backdrop
Posted Mar 13, 2018
Fifty Shades Freed (2018)
Comes with a distinctly nasty aftertaste that no amount of ice cream on the inner thigh can shift.
Posted Feb 9, 2018
Black Panther (2018)
Coogler was clearly given the freedom to explore his chosen themes and step outside the MCU mould.
Posted Feb 7, 2018
The Cloverfield Paradox (2018)
In terms of sheer entertainment, The Cloverfield Paradox is a joy.
Posted Feb 5, 2018
Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018)
While Death Cure is a solid if repetitive finale, the whole thing feels a bit 'over'.
Posted Jan 17, 2018
All the Money in the World (2017)
Plummer is extraordinary in the role -- even more extraordinary given the restrictions he was working under.
Posted Jan 10, 2018
The Greatest Showman (2017)
Just as we imagine that visitors to Barnum's circus 150-odd years ago knew exactly what they were getting, this is a film with few surprises but a whole lot of spectacle.
Posted Dec 21, 2017
Molly's Game (2018)
It's no surprise that Molly's Game is snappy, stylish and slick, but against the odds it's also incredibly emotional and fiercely feminist.
Posted Dec 21, 2017
Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017)
Rian Johnson has created a movie that is both quintessentially Star Wars and richer than anything that has come before.
Posted Dec 12, 2017
Jumanji doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it does shake up the board game with an Uncharted-style story packed with heart and laughs.
Posted Dec 8, 2017
Justice League (2017)
A movie that sets up a bunch of other movies and ticks all its boxes with brightly colour-coded markers but takes no risks and delivers no thrills.
Posted Nov 16, 2017
Murder On The Orient Express (2017)
Epic filmmaking then, for a story that's essentially a single location drawing-room drama. And deft storytelling, too, for a well-known tale that's been told several times before.
Posted Nov 9, 2017
EK MAIN AIR EKK TU (2012)
Kareena Kapoor is the film's saving grace, but overall Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu is a non-starter and a veritable Valentine's massacre of a movie.
