• Fallen Kingdom is an incredibly good-looking sequel that fails to take the story forward. It’s a disappointing lead-up to the next episode that might not be required after what we’ve seen.

  • Solo: A Star Wars Story is a mildly entertaining backstory to one of the most seminal characters in popular culture. We only wish questions that were never asked weren’t answered in such excruciating detail.

  • The plot doesn’t actually reinvent the wheel and yet it dominates the screenplay. Reynolds’ sequel — because let’s be honest, it really is all his doing — is one of those incredibly fun and lewd gifts that keep on giving. And you certainly won’t stop taking it all in; double entendres and all.

  • But is Infinity War the best Marvel film to day? Not really. With standalone ventures, the scope of a languid pace is a more balanced approach. Two-and-a-half-hours is a long time to be constantly sitting on the edge of a seat.

  • This darkly comedic and moving revenge tale is a swansong to Frances McDormand’s skill

  • The star, however, is Del Toro’s direction that constrains your chest in anticipation of the inevitable and simultaneously also swells your heart, reiterating that love does transcend everything, and in this case even species. And like the shape of water, it is all around us when submerged in it.

  • Gary Oldman ceases to exist with his powerful performance as the former English Prime Minister…
