    This is still one of my favourites from the series as it has it all: an enigmatic but despicable criminal mastermind, exotic locations and a Bond girl who is more than a match for the man himself.

  • Rocks



    The young cast deliver such excellent performances that you forget that this a film and not a documentary. It's gritty, real, and brings to the big screen a heart-breaking story that so many young people in the UK experience.

    The Dig


    The Dig is an enjoyable film that, much like the dig itself, starts off measured and gentle. However, it loses its way and if you’re watching it for the archaeology alone you will be disappointed.

  • Aquaman



    What a blast! Doesn't feel as polished as a Marvel but it's all the better for it. Reminiscent of Tron: Legacy through the use of vivid colours, a smattering of Loki & Thor misunderstandings as well as Ponyo vibes at the beginning.

    Momoa is the epitome of perfect casting.
