    The Lego Batman Movie

    ★★★★

    With its nitro pace and great homage, it's super cool fun, and lands many a moment of pure comic joy. Kapow!

    ★★★

    While the true story of this treasure hunt and power of greed is intriguing, and McConaughey turns in another memorable and full on performance. In the end it offers nothing more than bronze pickings.

    The Dark Knight Rises

    ★★★★★

    Whilst it faced near-on impossible odds, and didn't live up to the heavenly heights of 'The Dark Knight' (for me this is Nolan's Pièce de résistance), Christopher Nolan, does weave his visionary masterclass of filmmaking and storytelling to bring his near perfect Batman trilogy to an epically satisfying and engrossing conclusion - with this unpredictable, twisting and brooding biblical brute of a touching drama-spectacle. It's also solidly acted throughout from its ensemble.

    Hacksaw Ridge

    ★★★★★

    Gibson masterfully balances the hideousness of war, with one man's resolute pacifism and extraordinary heroism. Terrifically stirring film.
