3/5 71% Monsoon Shootout (2013) There's a strong hint of Bollywood bluntness in the characterisation and the love scenes - but it does paint a vivid picture of the hardships involved in policing a city as wild and untamed as Mumbai. - Time Out EDIT

3/5 88% Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (Captain Underpants) (2017) Just when your brain's starting to ache, the film chucks in another subversive crack about America's failing school system, or a genuinely hilarious sock-puppet-animated flashback. - Time Out EDIT

3/5 18% Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017) It's mostly carried off with aplomb, particularly by Charlie Wright, who looks like a slightly less evil Ezra Miller and gives a genuinely funny performance as permanently perplexed metalhead Rodrick. - Time Out EDIT

3/5 94% One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) Unlike its frontman, this multi-Oscar-winning drama hasn't aged particularly well. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2017
3/5 67% The Fate of the Furious (2017) A soap opera that just happens to cost millions of dollars and feature souped-up sports cars jumping over submarines. - Time Out EDIT

Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2017
4/5 90% David Lynch: The Art Life (2017) There's old home-movie footage too, lots of it previously unseen, and it all feeds into that image of Lynch as the twisted by-product of middle America, an apple-cheeked Eagle Scout who somehow got drawn into the dark side. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2017
3/5 86% The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016) An enjoyably twisty little throat-grabber. - Time Out EDIT

Read More | Posted Mar 27, 2017
2/5 67% Life (2017) How this by-the-numbers sci-fi horror managed to blast free of the DVD bin and engage A-list stars like Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds is hard to figure out. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2017
4/5 96% Gleason (2016) Frank, unashamed and bruising. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2017
