    ★★★★

    It’s not the sequel we necessarily wanted but it might be the sequel we needed.

    Glass isn’t the film I thought it was going to be but the more I think about it the greater I think it is. A complete deconstruction of the superhero genre and all the better for it in this age of superhero oversaturation. This film is going to have some fans up in arms almost as much as The Last Jedi did this time…

    The Favourite

    ★★

    A film with ice running through its veins. I hated most things about this film, the directorial choices particularly the fish eye lens, the score and the lighting. I did love the use of the word cunt though and the performances from the three female leads were great.

    ★★★★★

    I refuse to go and see A Good Day to Die Hard because it looks horrendous so I put the original on whilst waiting for the Oscars to start and its still a classic.

    It highlights what's wrong with modern action movie making. It takes its time to introduce you to all the characters and makes you genuinely care about their fates, it has real action and no CGI or green screen and is thrilling and funny.

    Give me this, the original Lethal Weapon and Speed over the crap that is released week after week at the moment.

    Nightcrawler

    ★★★★★

    I didn't think there'd be a better film than Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, then The Guest came out and it was touch and go for film of the year. Now it's no contest, Nightcrawler is the best film since The Dark Knight.

    Gyllenhaal gives the best performance I've seen since Day-Lewis in Gangs of New York, he's unnerving in every scene, it's the way he stands, looks at people and his voice, it truly is a mesmerising…
