4/5 Ford v Ferrari (2019) Brian Lloyd For all of the unlikeliness of it, 'Le Mans '66 (Ford v Ferrari)' is one of the most exciting and entertaining movies of the year. EDIT

4/5 The Irishman (2019) Brian Lloyd If this is to be Scorsese's final chapter on crime in America, it's by far his most introspective. It may not be what you'd expect from all of the pieces involved, but it is a fascinating and entertaining experience. EDIT
Posted Nov 1, 2019
4/5 Doctor Sleep (2019) Deirdre Molumby For the majority, it's a thrilling, riveting watch and an accomplishment given the task that was in it. EDIT
Posted Oct 30, 2019
4/5 Brittany Runs a Marathon (2019) Deirdre Molumby Laugh-out-loud funny, touching and inspiring with a take-home message about feeling good within and about yourself that never feels trite. EDIT
Posted Oct 30, 2019
3.5/5 The Addams Family (2019) Deirdre Molumby The Addams Family isn't perfect but it'll have you and your family laughing throughout. It's one of the better animations of the year, though 2019 hasn't offered much. EDIT
Posted Oct 29, 2019
4 / 5 Western Stars (2019) Brian Lloyd Even if you're not taken by Springsteen's music, it's still a richly made concert movie and there is an authenticity in it that's compelling. EDIT
Posted Oct 27, 2019
Dolemite Is My Name (2019) Brian Lloyd Truly one of the funniest movies of the year. EDIT
Posted Oct 26, 2019
3/5 Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Brian Lloyd While this is a fine effort and it's not without some interesting moments, it's not enough to be anything more than an unnecessary epilogue. EDIT
Posted Oct 23, 2019
2/5 Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) Brian Lloyd 'Zombieland: Double Tap' suffers from the same problems that's plagued countless comedy sequels over the years - namely, how do you make something funny by treading over the same ground? EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2019
3.5/5 Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon (2019) Deirdre Molumby Everything about the film is so fluffy (pardon the pun), light and enjoyable that parents will like it as much as the kids. EDIT
Posted Oct 17, 2019
4/5 Official Secrets (2019) Deirdre Molumby Thanks to its excellent cast and tight screenplay, Official Secrets elevates itself above the label of just another Spotlight EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2019
In the Tall Grass (2019) Deirdre Molumby While not as lame and lazy as a horror like The Silence, In the Tall Grass is standard-fare and little more than a cheap thrill. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
() Deirdre Molumby Tall Girl is not a movie with depth, though it is more charming than you'd expect. It's just such a shame about that ending. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
2/5 Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Deirdre Molumby Fans will enjoy returning to the characters but the film just doesn't feel necessary. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
2/5 Gemini Man (2019) Deirdre Molumby Proves what a naturally charismatic and talented lead Will Smith makes; but as an action-thriller, it's unimpressive with some questionable CGI. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
2.5/5 The King (2019) Deirdre Molumby Most of The King works but lead Timothée Chalamet comes out as the weakest link. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
2.5/5 Rambo: Last Blood (2019) Deirdre Molumby Last Blood offers a fitting albeit lacklustre conclusion to John Rambo's story. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
4/5 Ready or Not (2019) Deirdre Molumby Thrilling, hilarious and fun for all the family (jk, don't bring kids to this, unless you want them to turn into freaky murderous children). EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) Fiona Flynn A thoughtful, well-paced follow-up that serves as a fitting epilogue to one of TV's greatest shows. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2019
4/5 Abominable (2019) Brian Lloyd It's a sweet, fun-filled adventure story that's familiar, yes, but still enjoyable nonetheless. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2019
3.5/5 The Laundromat (2019) Brian Lloyd 'The Laundromat' has its moments and while it's by no means Soderbergh's finest, it's an intriguing and bleakly funny assessment of how the rules don't apply when you're despicably rich. EDIT
Posted Sep 28, 2019
4/5 Joker (2019) Brian Lloyd 'Joker' is buoyed almost entirely by Phoenix's performance - it really is that spectacular - and the boldness in how it tries to interpret one of the most recognisable characters in popular culture. EDIT
Posted Sep 24, 2019
Between Two Ferns: The Movie (2019) Brian Lloyd If this is to be the end of 'Between Two Ferns' as a going concern, it's probably the best way it can go out. EDIT
Posted Sep 21, 2019
5/5 Judy (2019) Deirdre Molumby Judy is simply marvellous - just give Renée the Oscar already EDIT
Posted Sep 19, 2019
2.5/5 Hustlers (2019) Deirdre Molumby Sadly though, nothing sticks and it's easily forgotten soon after you see it. EDIT
Posted Sep 19, 2019
1.5/5 The Kitchen (2019) Brian Lloyd A missed opportunity, 'The Kitchen' ends up half-cooked and bland. EDIT
Posted Sep 18, 2019
4.5/5 The Farewell (2019) Brian Lloyd As sweet and affectionate a story as you can get, 'The Farewell' is a heartwarming, funny tale of family, duty and the softest lies we tell one another. EDIT
Posted Sep 18, 2019
5/5 Ad Astra (2019) Brian Lloyd Easily one of the best movies of 2019. EDIT
Posted Sep 16, 2019
2/5 Downton Abbey (2019) Brian Lloyd If you're in the thrall of 'Downton Abbey', then sure, this is everything you could want and more. For anyone else, it's two hours of well-meaning, well-constructed propaganda for aristocracy. EDIT
Posted Sep 11, 2019
B+ Bill Burr: Paper Tiger (2019) Brian Lloyd Sweet, tender, and open-hearted, Bill Burr's 'Paper Tiger' isn't always what you'd expect from the comedian, but it's as good as anything he's done in years. EDIT
Posted Sep 11, 2019
1/5 Playmobil: The Movie (2019) Deirdre Molumby Unoriginal and dull, the worst animated movie of the year so far EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
3/5 A Million Little Pieces (2018) Deirdre Molumby It's nothing you haven't seen a hundred times before EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
4/5 Crawl (2019) Deirdre Molumby It's fun, riveting, impressively taut, and the kind of film you can see yourself returning to over and over again with your mates. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
1.5/5 The Souvenir (2019) Deirdre Molumby A relentlessly monotonous feature. Every line and character is so very dull and one is left perplexed and frustrated by the obscurity. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
3.5/5 Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019) Deirdre Molumby It's unexpected, with far more laugh-out-loud moments than you'd presume it would have. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
4/5 Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Deirdre Molumby Pumped with adrenaline, humour and action EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
4/5 Animals (2019) Deirdre Molumby Fantastic acting and a fascinating probe into modern living EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
3/5 Never Grow Old (2019) Deirdre Molumby Flawed but fresh with a highly impressive dramatic turn from John Cusack EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
3/5 It: Chapter Two (2019) Brian Lloyd At ten minutes shy of three hours, the movie expands constantly (not unlike a certain red balloon) to the point where it just bursts, and all you're left with is entertaining but ultimately unnecessary filler. EDIT
Posted Sep 3, 2019
2/5 The Informer (2020) Brian Lloyd With a title as unsubtle as 'The Informer', you can pretty much guess how the movie is going to go down. EDIT
Posted Aug 31, 2019
4/5 Overlord (2018) Brian Lloyd When you come right down to it, Overlord is a big, dumb action-horror movie that so clearly wears its influences on its sleeve, is so clearly enjoying the ridiculousness of itself, that it's hard not to love it. EDIT
Posted Aug 29, 2019
4/5 The Mustang (2019) Brian Lloyd 'The Mustang' offers up a soulful, poetic examination of freedom and imprisonment, man and nature, and how so often the two know more of one another than they both realise. EDIT
Posted Aug 27, 2019
3/5 Good Boys (2019) Brian Lloyd It's certainly nothing you haven't already seen before, but it's a decent attempt at recreating those comedies with an even younger cast that isn't afraid to make dark jokes or engage in lightly criminal behaviour. EDIT
Posted Aug 15, 2019
1.5/5 Brightburn (2019) Brian Lloyd Exactly the kind of cynical mash-up you'd expect from studio executives eager to make a quick payout. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2019
3/5 Child's Play (2019) Brian Lloyd You'll find yourself chuckling along at how gruesomely fun it all is, despite your best intentions not to. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2019
2/5 Annabelle Comes Home (2019) Brian Lloyd Falls short of the standard expected from this horror franchise. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2019
4/5 Midsommar (2019) Brian Lloyd A compelling piece of folk horror. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2019
3/5 Dumbo (2019) Brian Lloyd 'Dumbo' doesn't quite soar as it should, but it's still a decent attempt. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2019
3/5 Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) Brian Lloyd While by no means perfect, 'Pokemon Detective Pikachu' can nevertheless comfortably lay claim to being the best videogame adaptation ever made. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2019
4/5 Avengers: Endgame (2019) Brian Lloyd It does justice to an ending that's 22 movies in the making. EDIT
