    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★★

    With Great Power...
    Believe the Hype.
    Spider-Verse is one of the finest animations I have ever seen and has instantly shot to one of my favourite films of the year. I have never seen a film like it.
    Every so often one of those films comes along that feels like it's made for you. The comic book vibrant pop-art style animation, multiverses, superheros and the quick-witted humour that Lord & Miller nail so well, made for me - a cinematic experience…

    Eighth Grade

    ★★★★★

    Hey Guys, um, it’s Jack with, like, another film review.
    Bo Burnham has been a creative idol of mine for many years so when I found he was making the jump from Stand-Up to Film, I was very excited to see what he had up his sleeve.
    Straight out of the bat with a writing and directorial debut, Burnham has created one of the most real and authentic coming of age stories in years. (Better than Lady Bird.)
    It’s like…

    Won't You Be My Neighbor?

    ★★★½

    Celebrity Deathmatch: Mr Rogers V Bob Ross.
    Growing up in Britain, I never watched Mr Rogers. Even to this day, I have only read or heard about him in reference. I only tracked this film down because of the great buzz it had been getting online.
    This really was my first introduction to who Mr Rogers really was. He was no doubt such a warm and kind soul and this documentary really gets the spirit of him across.
    Where it…

  • White Boy Rick

    White Boy Rick

    ★★★

    Exactly what it says on the tin.
    The trailer for White Boy Rick came out of nowhere with such unapologetic energy that it convinced me to track down the only screening my town had late on a Thursday evening.
    Where I'm glad I saw it, it feels like a wasted opportunity. Just as it was really hitting its stride - it's over.
    It's leading factor being the compelling performances of Merritt (who needs to shave that stache ASAP) and of…

  • Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★½

    Mission: Accomplished.
    I thought Rogue Nation was close to a perfect modern action film. Since Mission: Impossible III, each film has outdone its predecessor.
    Fallout is no exception.
    This is exactly what you want from a spy film in every sense of the word.
    The cast are brilliant, the plot comes with enough genuine shocks, twists and turns to keep you on your toes and the action sequences...
    Each singular action sequence ALONE is worth your ticket price. Practically I…

  • Avengers: Infinity War

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★½

    We Weren't Ready.
    What a journey Marvel has brought us on over the past 10 years culminating in the most ballsy blockbuster in years.
    It's a sprint from start to finish with moments of humour, adventure and intense action.
    Everyone gets a surprising amount of screen time despite the large cast. The character interactions, some for the first time, being some of the most satisfying and hilarious moments for fans.
    MASSIVE Shoutout to Josh Brolin for being the most threatening…
