Small Screen Reviews

Another breathtaking performance from Rosamund Pike, but the film is undone by its limited characterisation.

A fascinating, melancholy and occasionally over sentimental window into William Shakespeare’s final years.

A fitting end to the trilogy, but despite great visuals, it goes down with more of a splutter than a roar.

Funny at times, poignant at others, with some great leads, and yet, somehow it doesn’t quite blend together.

A funny, heartwarming tale, with two actors at the height of their powers creating an odd couple scenario.

Enjoyable film with Clint back to his onscreen best but let down by some underwritten roles & a varied script.

A remarkable bittersweet tale, delivered with warmth, love & brilliance for both the material and characters.

A fascinating watch but doesn’t quite live up to Christian Bale’s utterly absorbing lead performance.

A powerful performance from Nicole Kidman in a very different role, in this dark, grim and compelling film.

An earnest, powerful portrayal of drug addiction and the impact on everyone involved, with an incredible lead.

An intriguing prospect, with a strong build up & great performances, but sadly doesn’t live up to its promise.

Another spellbinding performance from Saoirse Ronan is sadly not enough to elevate this fairly ordinary drama.

An interesting take on the role and power of the tabloid media, with a stirring performance from Hugh Jackman.

Despite strong performances from both Cranston & Hart, it was never going to able to live up to the original.

A vast improvement on the Transformers sequels with a fun, heartfelt story reminiscent of those 80s classics.
