Review: Everything Everywhere All At Once

Directors: Daniel Scheinert, Daniel Kwan Stars: Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, Jamie Lee Curtis Scheinert and Kwan - collectively 'Daniels' - garnered attention a few years ago with their wantonly strange and anarchic Daniel Radcliffe-is-a-corpse-with-a-boner movie Swiss Army Man; the absurdity of the project gathering the most comment. Still, this oddball calling card showed enough …

Review: Ambulance

Director: Michael Bay Stars: Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jake Gyllenhaal, Eiza González There's a moment before the carnage begins here in which two characters talk, briefly, about the movie The Rock. One quotes Sean Connery directly; the other is oblivious. It's a tongue-in-cheek little Easter egg, but it gets right to the heart of what's been missing …

Review: Kate

Director: Cedric Nicolas-Troyan Stars: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Miku Martineau, Jun Kunimura People wonder why other people watch slasher movies when - crude violence aside - so many of them are interchangeable. I watch my share and it's true; what you get in one isn't often much different to what you'll find in another. But therein …

Review: The Forever Purge

Director: Everado Valerio Gout Stars: Ana de la Reguera, Tenoch Huerta, Gregory Zaragoza James DeMonaco's Purge franchise lumbers onward. While it predated and has now surpassed the short sorry presidency of Donald Trump, it is the series that feels most laboriously representative of the whirlwind ills that the disgraced orange bile-pod brought to the Oval Office. …

Review: Monster Hunter

Director: Paul W. S. Anderson Stars: Milla Jovovich, Tony Jaa, Hirona Yamazaki I've never played a Monster Hunter game and couldn't tell you a thing about them. Thing is, when it comes to Paul W. S. Anderson adapting a video game to the big screen (something he has a habit of doing), it rarely really …

Review: Nobody

Director: Ilya Naishuller Stars: RZA, Connie Nielsen, Bob Odenkirk I'm currently under siege from a nudist junkie wannabe-DJ next-door neighbour in his late 40s who insists on playing loud '90s dance music at all hours, often for up to 12 hours at a time. Just recently, this has included a 10-day jag of consecutive all-night …

Review: The Old Guard

Director: Gina Prince-Bythewood Stars: Charlize Theron, KiKi Layne, Matthias Schoenaerts What is the strange draw of seeing our favourite actors buy it violently time and again? In recent years we've been encouraged to watch with glee as Tom Cruise died over and over in Edge of Tomorrow. For Happy Death Day, newcomer Jessica Rothe went through …

Review: My Spy

Director: Peter Segal Stars: Dave Bautista, Parisa Fitz-Henley, Kristen Schaal For about five minutes last year it looked like we were going to have The Summer of Dave Bautista. Following the box office conquering Avengers: Endgame, two trailers landed for broadly appealing comedies starring everyone's favourite Guardian of the Galaxy. Stuber promised buddy action thrills, while My Spy …

Review: The Aeronauts

Director: Tom Harper Stars: Felicity Jones, Eddie Redmayne, Himesh Patel It's time to get giddy with vertigo as the moment we've all been waiting for finally arrives. That's right, BAFTA botherers Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne have been reunited for another thoroughly British dalliance. These are actors recognised for their abilities (not entirely unjustly) who …

Review: John Wick Chapter 3 – Parabellum

Director: Chad Stahleski Stars: Keanu Reeves, Asia Kate Dillon, Ian McShane Last time we saw John Wick (Keanu Reeves) things weren't looking good for the ruthlessly efficient assassin. Having broken the sacred contract of sanctuary at The Continental Hotel in New York, Wick was deemed 'excommunicado' by its manager Winston (Ian McShane) who, out of …
