Wondering what the big deal is?


One of the best new films of the year

La La Land  

So... is it really it's all cracked up to be?

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story  

So... why does this movie exist? I have a theory.

Barry (Obama Biopic)  

Normally we let them leave office before we mythologise them, right?

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children  

They double down on the weirdness and Eva Green is magnetic.

Dr Strange  

Some very funny gags, some very expensive special effects in a world where nothing is at stake and victory is guaranteed.


Tom Hanks is the grandad/pilot I wish I had

Green Room  

Patrick Stewart like you've never seen him before. And Anton Yelchin like you'll never see him again.


Ellen page and Allison Janney at the centre of a lot of bad decisions.


You will argue about this movie so, so much after you've seen it.

Down Under  

Profane, Blackly Funny, Broad and Bloody. Could we please have more of these?

Jason Bourne  

Serious Spy is Serious

Star Trek: Beyond  

It somehow manages to combine the best elements of the rebooted Trek universe with the ethos of what made classic Trek so enduring and inspiring.


Will it ruin your childhood? Huh? Will It?

Finding Dory  

It doesn't tug on your heartstrings. It chokes and binds you with hearstrings

Warcraft: The Beginning  

A lot of interesting ideas and technique in a movie that doesn't really nail it.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople  

Sorry. The best movie of the year is from New Zealand
