    Judas and the Black Messiah

    ★★★★★

    You can kill a revolutionary but you cannot kill the revolution.

    Every awards season there's an influx of films that strive to be the best, some are far too obvious in being awards bait that they are soon forgotten however, there are a select few that have a power to them that ensures they stand the test of time and live long in the history books of cinema. Judas and the Black Messiah is that film this year and a…

  • I Care a Lot

    I Care a Lot

    ★★★★½

    There's always just something so appealing watching a film about bad people doing bad things to one another. I Care a Lot well and truly fits into that camp as a black comedy from J Blakeson with plenty of bite and attitude.

    Poised with shark-like self-assurance, Marla Grayson (Rosamund Pike), is a professional, court-appointed guardian for dozens of elderly wards whose assets she seizes and cunningly bilks through dubious but legal means. It's a well-oiled racket that Marla and her…

    Cherry

    ★★★

    Life leaves a mark.

    After directing four films from the box-office behemoth that is the MCU, the Russo brothers turned their attention to adapting a novel by Nico Walker, loosely based on his real life, titled Cherry. It's a much more low-key affair than a superhero film about saving the universe from annihilation but with it comes Tom Holland, an actor they worked with on three of those four films in his role as Spider-Man.

    Cherry (Tom Holland) is a…

  • Man of Steel

    Man of Steel

    ★★★★

    You will believe that a man can fly.

    My opinion on this film really does fluctuate with each viewing, this time round liking it more than I probably ever have. It has quite a few stupid moments however, for the most part, Man of Steel is a very good film. Watching Michael Shannon chew all the scenery in sight is a particular highlight of this one for me.

    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

    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.
