    Tenet

    ★★★½

    This movie will save your life, because it's the recent Nolan movie with the least need to rush out to see it in the cinema.

    Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

    ★★★★

    Terrific inversion of the smooth, bright surfaces in Retribution and the almost stately reinforcing of three dimensional space in Afterlife. An intense, frenetic race to save what's left of a ruined earth and a fantastic victory lap for maybe the only genuinely experimental modern blockbuster series.

    Dancer in the Dark

    The worst kind of art film, glibly exploiting its own character's innocence and naivety just to cynically make the audience squirm for a torturous two and a half hours. Utterly manipulative, contrived and insincere dreck.

    ★★

    Same box of tricks in a new coat. With every new Marvel movie I am initially excited with the setup but become increasingly bored with them ambling towards the most generic of action climaxes. Same flying, shooting, fighting climax as Captain America 2, same villainous plot as The Avengers. This is a film that loses its personality as it goes on.
