Small Screen Reviews

A classic teen horror movie, elevated by a mesmerising, frightening & vulnerable turn from Octavia Spencer.

A monster blockbuster with the ungainly style, plodding pace and unwieldy nature of a big beast.

Endearing characters & beautifully glossy animation, but the plot in this one is something of a dog’s dinner.

An intriguing, visual feast with a cracking score, but in truth it is a touch self-indulgent and overblown.

Fun, vibrant, with some great performances, this faithful retelling is actually quite un-Ritchie like.

A fun intro to the world of Pokemon which falls away in the second half despite an awesome turn from Reynolds.

Ramped up several notches, this is a brutal, breathless affair, which proves impossible to turn away from.

A real gem of a movie with heart, romance and comedy all working seamlessly thanks to the two leads.

A stunning if slightly weighty end to this part of the Marvel story packed full of action and emotion.

Rarely are remakes a good idea, and this, unfortunately, does nothing to dispel that myth.

A deliciously devilish performance from Huppert manages to elevate this light psychological thriller.

A tense slow-burn with some fine performances & explosive action pieces, but ironically it drags a little.

Strong leads and an intriguing true story are hampered by a limited plot light on detail and background.

Fine performances, particularly from Jessie Buckley, makes this slightly predictable drama well worth a watch.

Fusing genuine chills and tension with some fine performances, Pet Sematary is an improvement on the original.
