Back in 2010, I went to see Shutter Island resulting in the termination of my social life.

    The Queen's Gambit

    ★★★★★

    Featuring a magnetic performance from Anya Taylor-Joy, 'The Queen's Gambit' is Netflix's crowning achievement and a resounding success for the criminally underrated, Scott Frank.

  • The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run

    The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run

    ★★★½

    This dropping on Netflix has spared me the embarrassment of being the only adult in the cinema without kids.

  • Honest Thief

    Honest Thief

    ★½

    A title that describes Liam Neeson's career as an action star.

    Stealing audiences time and money with another redundant outing, Neeson unashamedly returns to the well of mundane set-pieces and banal phone conversations despite announcing his retirement from the genre in 2017.

  • Leatherface

    Leatherface

    ★½

    Prioritising gore over atmosphere, 'Leatherface' demonstrates a complete lack of understanding of what made Tobe Hooper's seminal film so great. Presenting the horror icon as a sympathetic young man with mummy issues, it serves as a reminder that some stories are better left untold.

    Unhinged

    ★★★

    An enjoyable fly-on-the-wall documentary that provides a fascinating insight into the life of Russell Crowe.

  • Teen Wolf

    Teen Wolf

    ★★★★

    There are three rules that I live by: 

    1). Never get less than twelve hours sleep.

    2). Never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city.

    3). Never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. 

    Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese - Coach Finstock (1985)
