Theatrical Reviews

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

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 beautiful, sensitive portrayal of love, both romantic and familial, triumphing despite the obstacles.

A fun and enjoyable sequel, but everything is not quite as awesome as the original.

An interesting story, with some great performances, but it ultimately feels like it pulls its punches.

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

An interesting story of human frailty comprising huge highs and large lows, with two top turns from the leads.

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

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.

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

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

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

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