    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★½

    Admittedly they’re very different beasts but The Suicide Squad isn’t quite Guardians-level great. Still had a fun time, though. Has to be said, the real hero of the film is Warner Bros. They seem to have let Gunn do literally whatever the hell he liked.

    The director gets some great mileage out of his cast, particularly Elba who is so laidback and natural here. It’s a fun ensemble and everybody being expendable (many from the get-go) does raise the stakes…

    Bo Burnham: Inside

    ★★★★★

    In the future, scholars will look back at last year and focus on the people who managed to turn months of existential dread into life-affirming, frequently hilarious, art. Bo Burnham: Inside will be amongst those shining cultural examples used.

    Puncture

    ★★★½

    A well-made and surprisingly engrossing law drama with a stunning central performance from Chris Evans.

    Another example of a decent film inexplicably missing out on a big screen release. Hope it finds an audience on video.

    Peppa Pig: My First Cinema Experience

    ★★★

    Peppa Pig: My First Cinema Experience. Transcends small screen origins. Taut script, well-acted, dazzlingly-shot. Danny Dog is a revelation.
