Underrated 70's cop thriller with Robert Blake as a motorcycle officer whose dream of becoming a detective comes true when a body is found in a shack. Working for a right-wing partner, the whole thing becomes a disillusion for him. Part thriller, part crushing of the American Dream, this superb film has a hard-hitting ending and a 7-minute tracking shot of a single road. A perfect finale to a near-perfect film.

Bad Moms (2016)
A surprisingly entertaining "adults behaving badly" comedy in which Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn decide to stop being perfect mothers and let themselves have some fun, to the disgrace of the PTA. While there was still enough low-brow humour for fans of The Hangover, this also had heart and a sweetness you never see in male equivalent, proving you can make an amusing comedy without being nasty.

Despite a tough and often unpleasant collection of characters, this tale of a single mother and her 6-year-old living in a motel just outside Disney World is full of bright colours and hope. An uplifting tale despite the heaviness of the content, with terrific performances from all. Sean Baker's film might not be for everyone but those who stay the course will be truly satisfied.

Kenneth Branagh directs and stars as Poirot in this remake of Agatha Christie's classic murder mystery as a group of passengers become suspect in the death of a gangster while stranded in an avalanche. With its very starry cast and some terrific cinematography, this is an entertaining version that does suffer from a slow middle section but a strong opening and a decent ending. Branagh manages to steal the show as the legendary detective.

Regarded as one of the best British horrors ever, this cult classic has just a fascinating story behind the scenes as it does on screen. Edward Woodward stars as a mainland policeman sent to a remote Scottish island where a young girl has been reported missing, soon finding a community hiding something darker. Christopher Lee called this his best role ever and while there's fun to have with the songs and Britt Ekland's laughably bad dubbing, it still manages to chill.

Terrific political drama about an ordinary nurse who is persuaded to be a figurehead for a political party with a secret right-wing agenda, which starts to alienate her to her patients. Taking the events occurring in France's political system and placing them into a setting of an ordinary town makes for a compelling and moving tale with top-notch performances. Recommended.

78/52 (2017)
The documentary that examines the famous shower scene from Psycho. With the help of talking heads from the likes of Jamie Lee Curtis, Elijah Wood, Peter Bogdanovich and the likes, the scene is dissected and it explains how it became the most influential and important piece of cinema. Interesting if you have never studied the scene but nothing new for real film fans and scholars alike.

Thor is back in his best film to date. A madcap mix of Marvel action and off-the-wall humour, it is brimming with actors we all like which helps make this hilarious entry in the MCU stand out. Thor finds himself stranded on a distant planet while his home is under attack from Cate Blanchett. Any film that has Jeff Goldblum, Blanchett, Tom Hiddleston and Mark Ruffalo has to be seen and Chris Hemsworth has finally found what works for Thor. Terrific.

St. Vincent (2014)
Bill Murray is at his grimiest as a grumpy man who is forced to look after his new neighbour's son and discovers a new lease of life. This comedy-drama has plenty to like but it is owned by Murray, who casually wanders through the film with an air of pure contempt for the world while being ably supported by Melissa McCarthy and Naomi Watts. A small movie that deserves to be seen, even if the ending is a little sentimental.

Love, Cecil
Documentary about the fashion designer and photographer Cecil Beaton. Using his memoirs, read by Rupert Everett, and using personal film and photos of the man, it follows his life from a self-obsessed young man who struggled with his own identity to becoming a highly regarded photographer and designer of costumes for films like My Fair Lady. Interesting but does seem to be a character who was never sure about what he really wanted in life.

A terrific crowd-pleasing film adaptation of the famous tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs while examining the private lives of the players, Billie Jean's relationship with a female hairdresser, Rigss battle with gambling. Funny, insightful and ending with the match, this has two perfectly cast performances from Emma Stone and Steve Carell. The film looks magnificent with its graining 70's feel.

Altman (2014)
Fascinating documentary following the controversial career of one of America's greatest and most innovating directors, Robert Altman. Using interviews and talking heads of the stars he worked with, the film examines what made Altman such a maverick and how he upset studios and executives with his unique style. A film made for those who love the man's work and for film fans wanting to get into the head of a genius.

The Snowman (2017)
This should have been a thrilling masterpiece with the talent involved but this is a muddled, confusing and unexciting tale of a troubled cop searching for a serial killer who leaves a snowman as his calling card. Michael Fassbender leads the cast but due to 15% of the script not being filmed, it isn't half the movie it should have been and becomes woefully bad, especially the terrible cameo from Val Kilmer. Bad.

Third Lego based animation and the second this year, it feels like a rushed job and so isn't as good as its predecessors. A town is under attack from an evil villain and it's up to five young ninjas, including the son of the villain, to stop him. Some of the jokes work but most miss the mark and so it relies more on flashy, brightly coloured action scenes to fill in the blanks. Jackie Chan is good as a ninja master. No more for a while, please.

The second part of Quentin Tarantino's epic revenge thriller is a much more wordy affair, as the Bride get ever closer to finding her former lover. With less action and more chatting, the film loses its focus and often becomes dull but when the set pieces do arrive, particularly the fight between Uma Thurman and Daryl Hannah, it is electric. It will still be interesting to see the complete film but not one of Tarantino's best.

The Ritual (2017)
British horror about a group of friends who head off on a hiking holiday in Sweden only to take a shortcut through a woodland. It soon becomes apparent that things are not right in the woods when they find strange markings on the trees, odd noises and carcasses. Borrowing heavily from other similar horror films, the movie works best when it allows the men to bicker and banter. A fair chiller but we've been here many times before.

Epic sequel to the 1982 sci-fi classic has Ryan Gosling as a cop out to discover a dark secret among the replicants. A terrific film from director Denis Villeneuve, which manages to capture the tone and feel of the original while moving it on. At 2 hours 45 minutes long, it cracks along at a great pace while being gripping, intriguing and mesmerizing. Gosling is good in the lead and it's nice to see Harrison Ford returns as Deckard. Outstanding.

First-rate comedy satire following the events after the death of Stalin, as his former cabinet form into a power struggle to see who will be the leader of Russia. Amando Iannucci's often hilarious film is also incredibly dark in places but with a stellar cast including Steve Buscemi, Jeffrey Tambour and the scene-stealing Jason Iaasc, this is one of the best comedies of the year, if you can stomach the swearing and the much bleaker moments.

Survival romance with Idris Elba and Kate Winslett as strangers who crash land on top of a mountain without anyone knowing they are there and having to rely on each other to survive while falling in love. Watching the two leads was always going to be a joy but because of this, the peril and tension are never there and the film just gently moves along to an over-emotional ending.

Quentin Tarantino's epic revenge thriller has Uma Thurman as the Bride, a woman left for dead on her wedding day who seeks to track down the man responsible for her demise. Brutal and violent with the trademark dialogue scenes from Tarintino, this has some neat cinematic tricks that makes the whole film much more than just an excuse for blood and violence.

Flatliners (2017)
9/10/17
Pointless reboot in which a group of medical students experiment in life after death experiences when they purposely kill themselves. The plot is still as unconvincing and dumb as before, only the mullets have gone. Ludicrous dialogue and lacking in thrills makes this a remake that didn't need resuscitating.

Breathe (2017)
4/10/17
Outstanding directorial for Andy Serkis. Andrew Garfield is the young man who contracts polio, is told he will never leave a hospital and will be dead in months. His wife, Claire Foy, has other ideas. This is a joyful, life-affirming crowd-pleaser with two outstanding performances from the leads. Surprisingly funny, incredibly touching but you will need a tissue or two.

2/10/17
Fluffy wishful thinking romantic comedy with Reece Witherspoon as a single mother whose turning 40, who opens her guest house to three would be filmmakers, causing all kinds of problems and then her ex-husband arrives. Mildly amusing and helped by Witherspoon's screen charisma but this looks more like an extended sitcom. Passes the time but instantly forgettable.

Jarhead (2005)

Sam Mendes' film version of the memoirs of a marine sent to the Gulf for the first war. Follows familiar new recruit war films as Jake Gyllenhaal is picked upon by his drill sergeant, bullied by his fellow troop members until they end up in the middle of a desert waiting for the war to come to them. Mildly interesting but apart from Roger Deakins' excellent cinematography, this is nothing new.

A handsomely made version of how Winnie The Pooh came to be but how it took its toll on on A.A. Milne's family and particularly his son, Christopher Robin. A film brimming with excellent performances and terrific cinematography but with so many heavy subtexts going on, it lacks any real emotional punch and while it could have been a strong tale of love, it doesn't quite make it.

Muddled thriller starring Ben Affleck as a man with Autism who works as an accountant but also has the skills of being a killing machine. This looks like a good idea that didn't have enough weight by itself and so a tacked on killer section was added. The relationship between Anna Kendrick and Affleck is sweet but the action sequences, while well handled, seem misplaced.

Dunkirk (1958)
24/9/17
Cracking stiff upper lip version of the events during World War II that led to the mass evacuation of France from Dunkirk. John Mills stars as the corporal leading a small group of men through the French countryside in order to escape the oncoming Germans while Bernard Lee and Richard Attenborough head over the sea in their private boats. More propagnda than Chris Nolan's film but just as powerful.

Dire sequel to the 1976 version has Kong not dead but needing a heart transplant and given a new lease of life when a female is brought, kicking the giant ape back into life and on the rampage. Terrible special effects, dire performances (from Terminator's Linda Hamilton) and awful dialogue makes this fall into the category of so bad it's good.

Fascinating sports film focusing on the 1980 Wimbledon tournament and particularly the rivalry of Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe, two men who were completely different and yet were the same. Terrific performances, especially from Shia LeBeouf as McEnroe, the final showdown is packed with tension and brimming with imagination to make it the best tennis movie there has been so far.

The Kingsman are back with another explosive mission, this time joining forces with an American counterpart, The Statesman, to take on evil drug baron Julianne Moore who plans to hold the world to ransom. Suffering the same fate as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, in that the surprise has gone, it's still very entertaining and Elton John steals the film from the very starry cast.

The Jungle Bunch
21/9/17
A French production dubbed into English, following the adventures of a group of animals, led by a penguin painted as a tiger, who call themselves The Jungle Bunch and are out to stop a koala from destroying the jungle. It's all very simplistic and never has any real ambition. One decent laugh but this will tire adults and kids may find it all too much to take in.
