Small Screen Reviews
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.
Charming & fun, with some great performances & a lovely family-friendly vibe reminiscent of some 80s classics.
An intriguing tale of the world renowned ballet dancer, which builds to an uncomfortably tense finale.
A beautifully shot but emotionally bereft version of the classic, despite a somewhat loveable little elephant.
A thoroughly gripping yet simple drama elevated by some powerful and mesmerising performances.
Entertaining yet full of flashbacks with a great odd couple pair, which comes to life midway through the film.
Set in post war Germany's smouldering ruins, this glossy drama fails to catch light thanks to a weak script.
A first-class cast elevate this likeable but relatively unremarkable rags to riches story.
A weak script, limited characterisation, and a failure of the humour renders Cold Pursuit somewhat lifeless.
An interesting story, with some great performances, but it ultimately feels like it pulls its punches.
A beautiful, sensitive portrayal of love, both romantic and familial, triumphing despite the obstacles.
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.
