Film

The Hateful Eight – 5*

A tightly-wound story, filled with characters who hate each other forced to shelter together. What could go wrong?

Eye in the Sky – 5*

Excellent performances all round keep the tension building in this ethical-dilemma military thriller.

Baby Driver – 3*

Edgar Wright's latest offering disappoints, delivering nothing more than cliched set pieces and a jaunty tune.

Alien: Covenant – 3*

Another film in Alien franchise feels little more than just that, but does a good job of moving us past the mess of Prometheus.

The Mummy – 3*

A ridiculous but thoroughly enjoyable action-horror, that follows squarely in the Universal Horror tradition.

Lady Macbeth – 5*

A breath-taking look at a 19th century woman tearing up her stultifying and oppressing life.

The Lost City of Z – 2*

A waste of one of the great tales of 20th century exploration, this shapeless film lacks pace and focus.

Free Fire– 5*

There's plenty of shooting and quick fire humour in Ben Wheatley's latest violent yet humorous drama.

Logan – 5*

Logan takes a leap and pushes comicbook films into realms so far unexplored- real depth, emotion and a plot that makes you really care about the ending all make this stand out as the best superhero film so far.

Rams- 4*

You'll be hard pressed to find a blacker comedy than Rams this decade. Both dryly funny and heartbreakingly sad, this small story can reach everyone.

The Girl With All The Gifts – 5*

A zombie film to make you think about humanity, this film takes up Romero's mantle and makes a throwaway genre something really worthwhile.

Kubo and the Two Strings- 4*

A beautiful stop-motion film full of heart, derring-do and magic that will keep a whole family watching.

Independence Day: Resurgence – 2*

A huge film with nothing to say, this is a shapeless and stupid waste of time so bad you almost hope the Earth is destroyed.

Elvis & Nixon – 4*

A light-hearted imagining of what might have been said in the strangest meeting the White House has known so far.

Trainspotting – 5*

What does a lost generation do when they grow up?

Captain Fantastic – 5*

Darker than it's quirky nature suggests, this is a film that asks some tough questions family, love, responsibility and freedom.

La La Land – 4*

While this musical does feature huge choreographed numbers and sweeping shots of LA, it's also an intimate portrait of failure, success and regret.

Love and Friendship – 5*

Acerbic, witty and determined, Lady Susan is a modern woman who just happens to live in the 1790s.

10 Cloverfield Lane – 5*

If the world outside was poison, how bad would it have to be inside before you would leave?

The Magnificent Seven – 3*

Engaging and well executed remake that ultimately fails to pack any real punch.

Arrival – 3*

Sleek and thoughtful, this low-octane alien film can't see it's premise through to a convincing ending.

Passengers – 4*

A solid sci-fi built on wonderful turns by the two lead actors.
