  • Chicken Little

    Chicken Little

    Chicken Little may have been Disney's first fully CG animated feature, but it certainly is not its Toy Story. While the animation and humour is tailored to children, there's really not much for adults other than a recognisable voice cast & an obvious homage to War of the Worlds.

  • Thunder Force

    Thunder Force

    Thunder Force is predictable and wastes the talents of both Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer, but at least Jason Bateman's enjoying himself. I did lol at "surf and turf". I appreciate what the movie was trying to do, but that doesn't mean it did it well, which is a shame.

    Zack Snyder's Justice League


    Zack Snyder's Justice League is definitely more cohesive, interesting and fulfilling than the original. However, it's way too long and overstuffed. Some CG is great, but some really isn't. Being better than before doesn't make it a great movie.

    Can anyone explain Mera's new accent?

  • Parasite



    I was worried Parasite might be overhyped. No chance. It's a slick, thought-provoking yet entertaining satire on class, discrimination and the lengths people will go to to make their life better. Just when you think you know where it's going, it takes an unexpected turn. Superb!
