    ★★★★½

    Stunning piece of animation. Having seen Song of the Sea, I felt the same ferocity and passion for Irish folklore in this film. Such a distinctive animation style and heartfelt story telling - loved it!!

  • The Northman

    ★★★★

    A truly brutal look at pre-Christian Norse culture. Visually stunning with sumptuous and disturbing imagery along with Egger’s distinctive framing style makes this an incredible watch. A truly unromanticised look at how Northern European cultures in the Dark Ages functioned, and you’ve always gotta love an unhinged Nicole Kidman doing her best Lady Macbeth impression.

  • Turning Red

    Turning Red

    ★★★½

    A pure hit of millennial nostalgia combined with a clever and nuanced examination of mother-daughter relationships, familial pressures and going through puberty. As an only child who was expected to always be “the best” that my parents wanted me to be, this film resonated so much with me. Loved it.

  • The Batman

    The Batman

    ★★★★½

    Such a breath of fresh air for Batman as a character. Incredible action sequences, but more than that - the crime thriller atmosphere is pitch perfect. Brilliant performances and I hope we’ll be seeing more from this Batman’s universe.
