Blood and Glory review

Blood and Glory is a testament to the contrasting perspective of the Anglo-Boer War, but nonetheless a quite enjoyable movie experience

Excellent

I Kill Giants review

The first full-length feature from Anders Walter ably adapts Joe Kelly and Ken Niimura's graphic novel into a simple yet profoundly effective film on adolescence, acceptance and facing one's demons, and no amount of misleading advertising can keep this one down

Great

Love, Simon review

Love, Simon is monumental in its banality: a funny, heartfelt, genuinely entertaining movie that succeeds in treating its subject, ground-breaking for a mainstream film, with light-hearted simplicity, making it as relatable as it is fresh

Andy Nyman's attempt to bring his stage play to the big screen is a solidly-made send-up to old horror tropes – but is lacking in both genuine scares and meaningful substance

Ready Player One review

Ready Player One is an exciting spectacle whose action sequences, rapid-fire references and breathtaking visuals keep its audience entertained

Ready Player One review

An adaptation of a decidedly sub-par novel is a decidedly pleasant surprise, as a master's touch elevates this VR adventure to unexpected and genuinely enjoyable heights

Pacific Rim: Uprising review

Steven S DeKnight's sequel to Guillermo del Toro's robo-blockbuster may be rusty in some ways compared to its predecessor – but it's still no less of an enjoyable, if basic, action romp
