The Meg lacks the bite to excite, restricted by the need to play it mainstream alongside a limp screenplay devoid of the element of surprise that prevents it from capitalising on the absurdity of its premise. It was set up as Jason Statham vs. Shark -- who knew something like that could be so dull?

Out now in cinemas, do read my review of Jason Statham's The Meg!

As flimsy as the paper its written on and unimaginative in every sense of the word, Dwayne Johnson's ridiculously boring Skyscraper comes crashing down under the weight of a lazy script and painfully predictable storyline which can't be saved by Johnson's shtick because we've seen it all before. Skyscraper is a towering bore.

Review now live! I did not like this one bit...

Leave No Trace is a sad film, with raw and real emotion and power in its detail and depth. Complete with an astonishing pair of performances, Debra Granik's latest feature ignores the suggestion of its title and leaves an indelible mark on audiences.

Review of Leave No Trace is now live! Is it a worthy follow-up to Winter's Bone?

Ant-Man is the very definition of a fine film. It's nothing special but perfectly serviceable. Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are charming as the titular heroes and keep this otherwise standard sequel ticking over - but it's worth it for that Infinity War-inspired mid-credit sequence, easily the film's standout moment.

Incredibles 2 is another impressive Disney Pixar animation, one packed with wit, excitement and spectacle. While it may not have the depth of the studio's superior efforts, it more than capably holds up to - if not surpasses - the original, to colourful, zippy, crowd-pleasing effect.

Check out my review of the 20th Disney Pixar release and sequel to one of their most beloved properties.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout continues to evolve the franchise in a deliriously exhilarating fashion, delivering an impressively seamless blend of heart-pumping thrills, nerve-shredding stakes and globetrotting antics that gives the series an even broader scope - and even more space for Tom Cruise to demonstrate his impeccable stuntwork.

Check out my (spoiler-light) review of the forthcoming Mission: Impossible - Fallout, landing in a cinema near you soon!

Whitney is very well-constructed, constantly fascinating but ultimately saddening documentary that transcends genre conventions to provide a visually striking, richly-contextualised and potent exploration of the music industry's greatest, most tragic loss.

Review now live for Kevin Mcdonalds’ documentary on the life and legacy of Whitney Houston.

The First Purge successfully expands on the franchise's roots by bringing it full circle and while the results aren't as thrilling as the series' high-points, it's a thought-provoking and pulpy parallel that has sadly become a mirror image of our dark times.

Check out my review of The First Purge, a prequel to America's most mediative franchise to date.
