The Marvelous Mrs Maisel

A gold standard in dramatised comedy and a wonderfully funny, enthralling show elevated by excellent design, a brilliant cast, and superb writing.

The Shape of Water

A beautiful, atmospheric film with an exceptional cast. The epitome of del Toro's work and an extremely fun modern take on a beloved classic.

Wine Country

An utterly banal experience. The jokes aren't memorable, the story is by-the-numbers, and the conclusion is just a touch dull. Not awful, but not good; a vanilla experience.

House

Sherlock Holmes meets Scrubs. It could have been awful – in some ways, it should have been – but some genuinely interesting writing and the ever exceptional comedic timing/acting of Hugh Laurie make it a modern classic instead (even with the season four blip).

Hamilton

Utterly brilliant. An exceptional cast, brilliant staging, riveting story, and phenomenal music combine to make an incredible experience that will have a lengthy impact on both the theatre scene and culture in general.

Crazy Rich Asians

A solid and refreshing rom-com that eschews some of the more formulaic tropes for deeper characters and a more interesting plot, pulled off by some brilliant direction and superb performances.

Jumanji: The Next Level

A solid sequel, building on the premise nicely whilst keeping the ideas fresh enough to stand on its own. Funny, entertaining, and with some great imagination.

Game Night

Hilarious, off-the-wall comedy with brilliant acting, great dialogue, and some excellent self-deprecating humour. Let the games begin!

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

A perfectly solid ending to the trilogy with moments of brilliance and a completely fine plot. Likely the weakest of the outings, but a decent send off and still worth a watch.

The Umbrella Academy

A surprisingly original take on a superhero team, paired with a weirdly wonderful time-travel-apocalypse plot that keeps you guessing, and some utterly brilliant performances creates the best superhero show since Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The Legend of Korra

A more-than-worthy successor to the brilliant The Last Airbender and a hugely imaginative show with a strong central core all of its own. With excellent world-building, brilliant characters, more mature themes, and some genuinely interesting, unique stories to tell, my only real issue is that it isn't twice (or four times!) as long.

BlacKkKlansman

An instant classic and a near-perfect movie, which could not have come out at a better time. Stellar performances, exceptional writing, immensely funny and culturally terrifying all at once; it's an absolute must-see.
