Captain Marvel disappoints due to token feminism

M. Night Shyamalan's Glass is a conceptually intriguing film

Glass is the final part of M. Night Shyamalan's "superhero" trilogy and was preceded by Split (2016) and Unbreakable (2000)...

Rami Malek is mesmerising as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody is a song you've heard at least once. And when you did, it was probably unlike anything you'd ever heard before...

The House with a Clock in Its Walls is fanciful fun

The House with a Clock in Its Walls is quite a mouthful and it's a good ode to oldie scary films; brimful of fantastical elements...

Plenty of originality but Hotel Artemis falls slightly flat

Hotel Artemis centres around a downtown hotel turned members-only hospital for criminals...

Ocean's 8 is slick and sophisticated with a stylish cast

When I first saw the trailer for Ocean's 8 it immediately piqued my interest. Why? Because, sadly, besides the contentiously shredded all-female Ghostbusters flick I hadn't seen anything like it over the last few decades, if ever.
