  • BlacKkKlansman

    BlacKkKlansman

    ★★★★

    Extremely stressful. Very Spike Lee.

  • Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★

    Fun! Tom Cruise’s face is strange and he believes himself to be God! Excellent motorcycle things! How is it possible for somebody to be as handsome as Henry Cavill?

  • Tampopo

    ★★★★

    I loved this. I wish more films were this joyful.

  • Skyscraper

    Skyscraper

    ★★½

    Terrible but thoroughly engrossing.

  • Set It Up

    Set It Up

    ★★★

    Watched this to keep ourselves awake after returning from the UK. It worked, but only just. Romantic comedies are SO HARD: you've gotta understand the pleasure of these things intimately and deliver on audience expectations, but if that's all you do then the end result is a bit of a yawn, and if you force weird (out of) character behaviour to get there then you're fucked.

  • Game Night

    Game Night

    ★★★

    Good plane fodder.

  • Isle of Dogs

    Isle of Dogs

    Very charmed by this. The sets are mind-bogglingly good.

  • Borg vs McEnroe

    Borg vs McEnroe

    ★★½

    Fine for a plane.

  • The Florida Project

    The Florida Project

    Thinking a lot about family separation at the moment.

  • Lady Bird

    Lady Bird

    ★★★★

    Very nicely done. I love Saiorse’s face.

  • Molly's Game

    Molly's Game

    ★★★½

    Good plane film. My sexuality is Idris Elba putting his glasses on and taking them off again.

  • Paddington 2

    ★★★★

    Hugh Grant is amazing.
