    Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

    ★★★★

    Mind over mayhem.

    Introduced in the much-maligned Suicide Squad back in 2016, Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn was easily one of the most likeable aspects of the film, so it makes sense that she gets her own film in the DCEU, Robbie herself serving as producer for the project. Ever since the hot-mess that was Justice League, Warner Bros. have learnt their lesson and have given us some light and fun superhero films but can they keep that trend going with…

    Parasite

    ★★★★★

    Act like you own the place.

    Bong Joon-ho is a South Korean filmmaker with a very diverse filmography and one who brings a distinct reputation with him when releasing a film, the Bong Hive being the name of his devoted fanbase. His latest film, Parasite, gets a long awaited release in the UK and going into this one blind is one of the best decisions you could ever make.

    All unemployed, Ki-taek (Song Kang-ho) and his family take peculiar interest…

    Not every house is a home.

    CM Punk would rather stare at a wall for 90 minutes and scream a few times than return to the WWE. This is just awful.

    Jurassic World

    ★★★★

    The park is open.

    It retreads familiar territory yet provides enough entertainment to feel different to its predecessor. They will never be able to recreate the magic of Spielberg's original, a film that held back on the thrills before unpacking it all in an amazing final act, so dinosaurs are on show aplenty in Jurassic World. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard have the dynamics to carry the film and the idea of training the raptors from birth is a…

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    ★★★★★

    Obviously.

    Three years ago, Marvel Studios and James Gunn introduced us to the Guardians of the Galaxy, a superhero team of outcasts and misfits who resembled more of a dysfunctional family than a cohesive unit setting out to save the galaxy. It's safe to say the world fell in love with them right there and then, and now they're back in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the fifteenth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    With the Guardians of the…

    Jurassic Park

    ★★★★★

    I've lost count of how many times I've seen Jurassic Park but with each viewing, I find myself appreciating it more and more.

    I first went to see it at the cinema when I was three and I will honestly say that is where my love for film began.

    Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park is an expertly crafted summer blockbuster full of moments to both amaze and thrill. Through the combination of both practical effects and state-of-the-art CGI, Spielberg brings dinosaurs back to life in spectacular fashion.

    This film, and not its sequels, is why I have high hopes for Jurassic World.
