Small Screen Reviews

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.

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.
