Small Screen Reviews

An enjoyable but somewhat hit and miss film, with fine performances from Ewan McGregor and Eeyore.

The Meg is just too serious, when a blood fest or wholly tongue-in-cheek approach might have been more fun.

Great to see Denzel return to this role in a fun & frenzied follow up, but it lacks the original's intensity.

Tense, thrilling and unrelenting with an emotion punch, the only problem is how can they top it next time?

A dark visceral retelling of the classic, but so soon after Disney’s CGI epic, this sadly adds little more.

Good fun and well worth a watch, but lacking originality, and pales to the other recent Marvel movies.

A tense, claustrophobic thriller with a first rate cast and an interesting premise which just falters.

Despite a familiar storyline, the fine turns & pure fun result in this sequel just about pulling it off.

Plenty of explosive action sequences and high drama can’t paper over the thin plot and weak characterisation.

Fun, funny and up there with the best of Pixar, Incredibles 2 is a joy to watch.

An affecting, powerful and thought-provoking drama with two quite incredible central performances.

Powerful, tense & thought-provoking, with a truly spellbinding performance by Ethan Hawke.

Director J.A. Bayona goes big with dinosaurs, set pieces and tension, but sadly the plot goes by the wayside.

A tense and dramatic film, with a brilliant raw performance from Shailene Woodley but a weak & limited script.

A tense, brooding edge-of-your-seat drama which threatens to be a classic, but falls at the final hurdle.
