Review | Dead List

Dead List might feel like a glorified home-movie, but it is consistently fun. Sometimes it manages to hold your attention by making you laugh at it but this is often balanced out by moments that show genuine promise and talent.

Review | Isle of Dogs

Wes Anderson’s second animated feature is his most entertaining yet!

Review | Pacific Rim: Uprising

Pacific Rim Uprising lacks the magic touch of its creator, with downgraded visuals and a lower calibre of imagination but manages to preserve just enough of the original’s DNA to succeed on its own merit.

Review | Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Jumanji earns its “not as bad as I anticipated” reviews, but not by much.

Review | Unsane

Steven Soderbergh’s psychological thriller, shot entirely on iphone, is well written, well refined, and clench inducing.

Review | Ready Player One

From book to film Ernest Cline’s multiverseal video game The Oasis has made it to the big screen – but sadly the flaws that held it back originally may have been improved upon, but are still very much present.

Mini-Review | Mudbound

Netflix managed to bag itself an Oscar nomination with it’s historical drama Mudbound, however, is it worth watching for more than the cinematography?

Review | My Generation

David Batty’s new documentary, My Generation is a real audio visual treat. Whilst it is nothing groundbreaking, it offers a unique insight into that most iconic decade from the perspective of one of its biggest stars.

Review | The Shape of Water

Harrison gushes over this semi-aquatic romance.

Review | Tomb Raider

While it manages to stand up to and beat it’s videogame film predecessors, it still only levels out to an average adventure flick.
