The Girl in the Spider's Web review

The Girl in the Spider's Web does away with the gritty yet somewhat low-key tone of Larsson's material in favor of spectacular but familiar action and spy film tropes, resembling far more a modern instalment of the Bond series than any adaptation of the Millennium trilogy to date.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald review

In one of the most fascinating cinematic worlds, The Crimes of Grindelwald miserably fails at what the Harry Potter series was good at: character building over world building.

Overlord review

Julius Avery's second feature film takes us to a decidedly different prelude to D-Day with twisted science and Nazi zombies abound. The end result is an amusing romp – but one lacking in staying power.

A Star is Born review

Since the dawn of cinema, ordinary people have always dreamt about becoming famous: A Star is Born is the perfect manifesto for such dream in our age.

Black '47 review

Black '47 could be defined as a Western set during the Great Irish Famine. Its dark, gritty tone meshes well with the indictment of British policies of the time

Black '47 review

A Western set in Ireland during the Great Famine, its gritty and dark tone mesh well with the indictment of British policies, but all too often characters and themes boil down to predictable tropes.
