Small Screen Reviews

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.

A fresh take on the Purge franchise, which entertains, but fails to follow through on its interesting ideas.

A powerful, absorbing and no holds barred account of the rise and fall of legendary singer Whitney Houston.

A solid movie full of fun & chemistry, but unlike Ocean's 11-13, it lacks in the danger & complexity stakes.

A wonderful potboiler with nods to the classic horrors, which unfortunately lets itself down in the final act.

Will Arnett makes a good fist of it, but is sadly hampered by the fact that the script's gone to the dogs.

Great fun & enjoyable, with fine performances, but it lacks a little ambition and proves a little predictable.

An interesting and intelligent diplomatic drama, but it barely scratches the surface of the political issues.
