    Tesla Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Tesla Movie Review
    Proving that the mystery is probably more compelling than the facts, Ethan Hawke's turn as Tesla showcases a committed performance but little else.

    Bill & Ted Face the Music Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Bill & Ted Face the Music Movie Review
    Thirty years later and Bill & Ted are back to save the world with rock, although long term franchise fans will need some hardcore rose-tinted specs to view this as any kind of future-classic-in-the-making.

    The Babysitter: Killer Queen (Netflix) Movie Review

    by Kumari Tilakawardane
    The Babysitter: Killer Queen (Netflix) Movie Review
    If you loved The Babysitter, no doubt you’ll be lining this one up in your Netflix queue anyway; just don’t expect it to live up to the highs of the first film.

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things (Netflix) Movie Review

    by Tom Davies
    I'm Thinking of Ending Things (Netflix) Movie Review
    Charlie Kaufman returns with an adaptation of Iain Reid's mind and genre-bending novel and it's his most assured directorial effort yet. A film about wanting to break up with someone...Sort of...Not really.

    Mulan (Disney+) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Mulan (Disney+) Movie Review
    It's easy to see why Disney want to leverage a premium price for this epic wuxia martial arts romp; it's a storming live-action adaptation of the animated classic.

    The New Mutants Movie Review

    by Tom Davies
    The New Mutants Movie Review
    It's the film that's pulling everyone back to the cinema! The film everyone's been waiting for! The most anticipated movie of the year!...What? Is something else out at the moment? Finally, The Not-So-New Mutants. A time capsule for teen stars of yesteryear.

    Tenet Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Tenet Movie Review
    The jury's out on whether this will reignite the fire for cinemas, with Nolan's latest suitably epic and tremendously Bond in moments, but also painfully convoluted, and frustratingly obtuse, robbing viewers of a completely immersive, engaged ride, and sapping tension as a result.

    Ava Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Ava Movie Review
    Jessica Chastain slums it in 2020's answer to Luc Besson's Anna, this week's 4K premium rental of choice - mostly because there is nothing else - if you don't want to risk going out to see Tenet.

    One Night in Bangkok Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    One Night in Bangkok Movie Review
    The legendary Mark "Crying Freeman" Dacascos capitalises on his belated big break in John Wick 3 with this committed, small-scale indie take on Cruise's Collateral.

    The One and Only Ivan (Disney+) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    The One and Only Ivan (Disney+) Movie Review
    It's hard to see quite how this was ever supposed to be a successful theatrical release, with Disney Plus churning out another Netflix-standard all-star family flick which will at least please the kids.

    Project Power (Netflix) Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Project Power (Netflix) Movie Review
    Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt unsurprisingly elevate Netflix's latest superpowered product, a fun enough, rap-fuelled bit of typically baggy but pleasantly bombastic Friday night frivolity.

    Sputnik Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Sputnik Movie Review
    Conveniently sharing the name with Russia's recently announced Covid vaccine, Sputnik may actually be one of those rare movies which will benefit from a delayed release, and is an impressively atmospheric indie debut.

    Deep Blue Sea 3 Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Deep Blue Sea 3 Movie Review
    Forget Deep Blue Sea 2 - if you'd even heard about it - this third entry is a much more watchable effort even if it's still quintessentially DTV, and is available in a cheap digital triple-pack with the fun 20-year-old original.

    The Vigil Movie Review

    by Tom Davies
    The Vigil Movie Review
    Blumhouse rolls the dice with another first time writer/director in one of its more daring indie offerings, but doesn't quite roll a six. It rolls a 7. Out of 10. It's a D10.

    by Kumari Tilakawardane
    Black is King (Disney Plus) Movie Review
    Death, taxes, and Beyoncé releasing content that more or less breaks the internet. This time it’s Black is King, released on Disney+ this week as an accompaniment to last year’s album The Gift.

    Saint Frances Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Saint Frances Movie Review
    Gifted a last minute PVOD reprieve, this year's answer to The Florida Project now gets a full theatrical window, an impressive slice of honest drama, tackling weighty issues with a breezy attitude that belies its depth of understanding.

    Proxima Movie Review

    by Cas Harlow
    Proxima Movie Review
    Always intended to be one of the very first movies to welcome audiences back to the cinema, Proxima is a superb character study driven by a career high performance from Casino Royale's Eva Green.
