Castle

The ridiculously sublime adventures of Rick Castle and his much more qualified friends. Not exactly high art, but a whole lot of fun, with greater depth and better plots than it needed.

Monsters University

A by-the-numbers college caper that's fun enough, but falls far short of the original and just feels a little loose in its own right.

The Mitchells vs The Machines

Utterly inventive, brilliantly funny, and beautifully crafted. The central plot is a little by-the-numbers, but everything else is as original as they come, and the movie shines as a result.

Falcon and the Winter Soldier

A decent fleshing out of two interesting characters from the MCU, with a solid ending and some powerful themes, yet ultimately let down by a lacklustre first half and a generally poor, rushed execution.

Identity Thief

A solid comedy with some interesting (albeit slightly over-the-top) characters and more societal nuance than expected.

The Proposal

A surprisingly funny and interesting film with a great cast and a brilliant amount of Betty White.

The Accountant

A surprisingly clever and different action movie with some great moments, clever twists, and an overall solid plot. Could have been tightened up in a few places, and the portrayal of autism is maybe lacking in nuance, but still enjoyable.

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

A nuanced lens shone on a particular moment in history, with an incredible cast and a brilliant script, albeit one probably better placed on a stage (as the original was intended) than on film.

What We Do in the Shadows

An indie flick filmed on a tight budget that still manages a much better modernisation of vampire mythology than Twilight, with a great cast and some excellent deadpan comedy thrown throughout.

Mad Max: Fury Road

Action-packed, with some intense car chases and choreography, and more character depth than it needed, but still little more than an excuse for some body horror and extreme violence.

Lupin

A highly enjoyable, solid thriller with some great twists and a brilliant lead actor. Definitely recommend watching with subtitles rather than dubbed.

Palm Springs

A really solid movie that makes the most of the central gimmick in some unexpected ways, with a great cast and excellent comedy writing.
