3/5 48% Last Christmas (2019) While it doesn't feel particularly Christmassy, I still felt better walking out of the cinema than I did going in. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 81% Little Monsters (2019) Some of the gags work well, however - one in particular, involving a photograph - while Nyong'o's dazzling screen presence and the charming kids elevate this just above your typical zom-com. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 92% Ford v Ferrari (2019) The cars do look incredible and every time we venture on to the track the movie goes up a gear as director James Mangold makes it feel like you are in the pit lane. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 81% The Report (2019) It is restrained, captivating and completely vindicating to all opponents of the Iraq War. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 91% Luce (2019) A moral whodunnit, fully intending to create one hell of a conversation on the way home from the cinema. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 65% The Good Liar (2019) A solid film from two absolute greats. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 60% Driven (2019) There's a really good story in there, but the makers chose to focus on all the wrong parts. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 83% The Aeronauts (2019) [T]he Aeronauts did nothing but, erm, deflate me. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 43% After the Wedding (2019) I wanted to be swept along by the heft of it, and there are moments it could have happened, but in the end it was merely a waft. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 89% Brittany Runs a Marathon (2019) [F]or a feel good story of how baby steps can help you focus on what matters, it hits its mark. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2019
4/5 76% Doctor Sleep (2019) In spite of this, Doctor Sleep is a solid, entertaining follow-up to one of the scariest ever films. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2019
3/5 51% Black and Blue (2019) Only Fast & Furious actor Tyrese Gibson... is up to the task of going toe to toe with Harris when the adrenaline pumps so hard that her nervous system threatens to implode. Without them, Black And Blue wouldn't leave a mark. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2019
2/5 43% The Addams Family (2019) Aside from an amusing Uncle Fester it's not funny enough, there's nothing for anyone over the age of 11. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2019
3/5 71% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) [I]t's a solid, entertaining reboot of a classic franchise. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2019
4/5 83% Official Secrets (2019) The cast are excellent, especially Ralph Fiennes, and the story is told with compassion. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2019
3/5 40% Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Michelle Pfeiffer channelling her contemptuous Catwoman from Batman Returns is proper good, though. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2019
3/5 97% Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon (2019) Chuck in some Tom And Jerry-style capers with Bitzer the sheepdog and you have a perfect rainy-Sunday tonic for your flock of little ones. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2019
4/5 69% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) It feels like watching a lengthy compilation of well-scripted cut-scenes from zombie video games. But any movie with jokes about David Gray and Portishead is all right by me. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2019
1/5 26% Gemini Man (2019) This is an absolutely inexcusable turkey. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2019
3/5 65% The Day Shall Come (2019) This does not have quite the oomph of his previous work but hits far more often than it misses, with some real pathos too. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2019
4/5 54% Farming (2019) The extremely violent story is based loosely on the childhood experiences of director Adewale. And it is his passion for this project which sets Farming above so many other homegrown movies you will see this year. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2019
3/5 71% The King (2019) It looks incredible and has the best character actors money can buy. But Timothee Chalamet as Henry V doesn't quite live up to expectations, giving a muted performance when something deeper was needed. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2019
4/5 90% El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) Oh man, this is a cleverly put together film that refuses to bow to too much nostalgic references, but simply reminds us of Gilligan's brilliant storytelling and groundbreaking cinematography. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 100% Hitsville: The Making Of Motown (2019) With such access and catalogue it's impossible not to fall for this. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2019
5/5 83% Judy (2019) This film is an important reminder for older generations - and an introduction for younger generations - as to why the singer and movie star was such a phenomenon. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2019
3/5 78% Skin (2019) A good watch but too many pieces of the puzzle were missing for it to be great. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2019
2/5 24% The Goldfinch (2019) Only Sarah Paulson as Xandra and Denis O'Hare as whistleblower Lucius offer a glimpse of how good this should have been. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2019
4/5 88% Ready or Not (2019) Weaving is nothing short of a revelation - goofy, beautiful, ballsy and very funny - a cosplayer's dream character. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2019
3/5 75% Hotel Mumbai (2019) This is a bold, decent film that will, quite rightly, stay with you for some time. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2019
5/5 69% Joker (2019) See this film immediately. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2019
1/5 22% The Kitchen (2019) If the message of equality in this movie is "women can be s****y too", then it's not lost, but topped with one that says "So can these movies". Poor. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2019
5/5 99% The Farewell (2019) This film isn't about cancer, it's about the sacrifices we make for family and how we approach mortality. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2019
4/5 84% Ad Astra (2019) A welcome return to blockbuster leads for Brad Pitt, who carries the whole film, but such a shame it didn't go the extra mile to keep the interest levels up. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2019
2/5 14% Night Hunter (Nomis) (2019) For a film so desperate to be Zodiac, everyone would have seen this one coming. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2019
4/5 88% Hustlers (2019) This is a sexy, funny and morally ambiguous romp. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2019
3/5 67% Rapid Response (2019) Powerful stuff, but easily solved - don't drive at 200mph in a sardine can full of petrol. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2019
3/5 62% It Chapter Two (2019) IT felt dated and barely different to the first - and so, so, soooo long.This is a film that ends about four times, none of them in a particularly satisfying fashion. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2019
3/5 72% The Shiny Shrimps (Les Crevettes Pailletées) (2019) There isn't a lot to surprise in the straightforward plot but for a few laughs, tears and a whole lot of questions, it is a fun watch. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2019
5/5 90% The Souvenir (2019) A really, really good film that is still scratching away at me, some weeks later. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2019
2/5 32% A Million Little Pieces (2019) Despite some great directorial flourishes and performances, the film does addiction a disservice. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2019
3/5 68% Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion (Astérix - Le secret de la potion magique) (2018) The film has sacrificed its bite for crowd-pleasing slapstick, and this left me wanting. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2019
4/5 79% Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) So while the actual horror and plot devices occasionally teeter on the brink of formulaic, there are several particularly unpleasant moments - and the Del Toro magic dust has been sprinkled liberally enough to make the monsters genuinely horrible. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2019
2/5 39% Angel Has Fallen (2019) If we want to see a president on the brink of collapse, we can just turn on Sky News. More Nick Nolte, less badly made pastiche, please. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2019
3/5 83% Crawl (2019) Crawl is daft, naff, full of cheap jump-scares and doesn't know when to stop its preposterous sequences of events. But it gets to the point quickly and does its job. The Cuprinol of film. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2019
5/5 85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) It's almost too much for one viewing. I immediately wanted to see it again and again. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2019
3/5 84% Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019) Isabella Moner does a good job as our favourite explorer and manages to please fans with a few knowing hints at her characters pre-school origins. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2019
4/5 80% Good Boys (2019) At times it's eagerness to shock and tittilate becomes a bit tiresome - but it's message about friendship groups and it's horrific reminder at just how awkward being 12 surprised me in to enjoying this very much indeed. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2019
4/5 89% Blinded by the Light (2019) This film wasn't high on my "must-see in 2019" list. But you know what? Its relentless optimism and charming delivery may have given us the Brit flick of the year. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2019
3/5 24% Playmobil: The Movie (2019) It's polite enough, rendered brilliantly and has some half decent tunes in there so, if it is aiming for the 5-10 age group, it may just get away with it. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2019
3/5 44% The Art of Racing in the Rain (2019) It's hammy, cliched and utterly devastating. It got me. Damn. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
