    Tigers Are Not Afraid


    Reviewed for Hero Collector.

    My fourth favourite film at this year's FrightFest (I've adjusted my initial FrightFest Top Ten, bumping it ahead of Summer of '84 and Braid).

    Short version: "Haunting, suspenseful and deeply moving, this is a beautifully made and superbly acted debut feature that deserves to be seen on the big screen before it inevitably winds up on VOD. Don't miss it; it's wonderful."

    This doesn't quite live up to that poster. Some good stuff in it, but it lost its way a little at times too.

    Minding the Gap


    One of the best films I saw at Sheff Doc/Fest. A beautifully made, strikingly personal coming-of-age story about three skateboarding friends, whose lives are all touched, in different ways, by domestic abuse. Really hope this gets a proper theatrical release soon.

    Deadpool 2


    Not without its problems but a lot of fun. And the X-Men movies could learn a lot about giving X-Men fans what they want from this.
