    Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers

    ★★★½

    Whilst the comparisons to 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit?' were immediate and inevitable, in truth 'Rescue Rangers' bears little relation to it beyond the initial conceit of humans and 'toons' mixing it and living co-dependently in Hollywood. It's a scrappier and more free-associaton riff of a movie, never approaching the heights of polish or technical finesse of Zemeckis' magnum opus, for all its rapid-fire ledger of gags and cameos. There's still cleverness and affection at work throughout, though, with interesting things…

  • Uncharted

    Uncharted

    ★★★

    'There's never been a good video game movie', goes the old critical canard. 'Uncharted' always seemed like it would be the one that couldn't miss, though. The one that would well and truly break the mould. So the film's blah critical and audience reception came as both a surprise and a shame.

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★

    The novie succeeds in terms of Doctor Strange.

    But it doesn't quite succeed in terms of the madness.

    And it doesn't nearly succeed in terms of the Multiverse.

    In his sixth outing (but only his second standalone film) as this character, Benedict Cumberbatch is still finding new notes to play (literally when we come to the third act), and lets us see Strange's conflict, regret over past choices that led him down the path to Bleeker Street, and the arrival…
