Rating Title/Year Author
5/5 Judy (2020) 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

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
Posted Aug 6, 2019
2.5/5 The Lion King (2019) Brian Lloyd If you never once saw the original, this would definitely mean a lot more to people. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2019
4/5 Toy Story 4 (2019) Brian Lloyd An excellent encore to one of the finest animated properties of the modern era. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2019
1.5/5 The Current War (2017) Brian Lloyd For a movie that's supposed to be about invention, progress and the dawn of the future, 'The Current War' is absolutely none of these things. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2019
4/5 Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood (2019) Brian Lloyd A leisurely drive through '60s Hollywood, 'Once Upon A Time...' may take some detours here and there, but that's half the fun of it. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2019
2.5/5 Stuber (2019) Deirdre Molumby It's an action comedy that isn't particularly effective as an action movie or a comedy. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
3.5/5 Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Deirdre Molumby There is much to enjoy and admire in Far From Home but one can't help but feel these MCU movies are becoming increasingly samey. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
3/5 Tell It to the Bees (2018) Deirdre Molumby There's nothing all that interesting to it, or anything that distinguishes it from other queer romance dramas. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
Secret Obsession (2019) Deirdre Molumby Everything about the film is stupid, obvious and formulaic. As a result, it's hilarious, and ideal for a chilled, dumb movie night in. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
3.5/5 Yesterday (2019) Deirdre Molumby Such a lovely, warm viewing experience that it's impossible to go too tough on it EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
1.5/5 Dark Phoenix (2019) Deirdre Molumby Painfully conventional and terribly dull, at least this will be the last film in the current series. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
3.5/5 The Angry Birds Movie 2 (2019) Deirdre Molumby Adults and kids will both enjoy it immensely because that solid characterisation, humour and sense of fun consistently shine through. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2019
4.5/5 Rosie (2018) Deirdre Molumby This is a valuable - nay, an indispensable - film about contemporary Ireland that demands to be seen by all. EDIT
Posted Jul 15, 2019
Sarah Silverman: A Speck of Dust (2017) Deirdre Molumby She divulges in her near-death experience, delivers some tough home truths, and lands genuine, big laughs. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2019
3.5/5 Papi chulo (2018) Deirdre Molumby It is certainly unlike any other film you'll see this year but don't go into it expecting something uplifting. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
Always Be My Maybe (2019) Deirdre Molumby When Keanu Reeves comes in, Dear God. The comedy is just next level. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
4.5/5 Booksmart (2019) Deirdre Molumby It's got heart and it's f**king hilarious. Now how many comedies can you say that about? EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
2/5 The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019) Deirdre Molumby Kids and families will go see Secret Life of Pets 2 regardless of what reviews say, but there's genuinely no depth or endurance here. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
Someone Great (2019) Deirdre Molumby A beautiful tribute to the hilarity and healing power of female friendship. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
4/5 Rocketman (2019) Deirdre Molumby Even if it doesn't always quite hit the mark, and can get very cheesy, you come to admire its consistent, determined vision and boldness. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
3/5 Aladdin (2019) Deirdre Molumby You get the sense that either Guy Ritchie wasn't sure what he was doing or Disney execs insisted on the film being as bright and showy as possible to distract from its flaws. EDIT
Posted Jun 4, 2019
3/5 The Hustle (2019) Deirdre Molumby Fun for a movie night out with the girls. The costume design and lavishly decorated French locations are delicious while Anne Hathaway proves her comedic prowess yet again. EDIT
Posted May 13, 2019
Wine Country (2019) Deirdre Molumby It's like watching your mom and her friends get drunk while you're sober. Good for them that they're letting loose and finding everything so funny. But you don't get it. EDIT
Posted May 13, 2019
The Silence (2019) Deirdre Molumby Whether you're a horror fan who enjoys jump scares, gore, monsters, or a sharp social commentary, Netflix movie The Silence will satisfy none. EDIT
