Just another movie-obsessed civilian.
The final 20 minutes are the only real saving grace. Lo and behold, it just happens to be when the sharks take centre stage. Statham finally gets to flex those action-man muscles, and we witness some over-the-top fun jet-ski stunts. Statham, megalodons and straight carnage. Hopefully, the eventual Meg 3 realises that is the real golden ticket here.

Talk To Me fills its 95-minute run-time with zero fluff, a brilliant young cast, and the always magnificent Miranda Otto, some excellent practical effects coupled with shifty camera work, creating one the best supernatural horror films I have seen in years.
The Batman is both new and fresh. Those words seem hard to fathom when we are talking about a comic book movie and especially a Batman movie. However, Matt Reeves has managed to do just that. Both in the story and visually, this felt like no Batman movie we have seen before. It felt more psychological thriller than comic book movie and as every scene went by it went from strength to strength.

Come on, Barbie, let’s talk patriarchy!
Over the past couple of months, there has been no escaping the Barbie hype train. The Barbenhiemer battle has been a constant discussion, the marketing has been on overdrive, and it has been impossible to avoid Barbie in the real world or on social media. As I ventured into Barbieland, I wondered what would happen if this film stank? And thankfully, it didn’t; in fact, it was the complete opposite. The film’s excellence matched its hype and will proceed to make Greta Gerwig one of the hottest tickets in Hollywood.
