Shrek Forever After

A much better finalΓ© to the franchise and general return to form, with some excellent humour and a genuinely interesting plot and villain.

Avengers Assemble

It's no small feat to weave together this many characters and somehow make them all feel equally relevant, interesting, and enjoyable to watch. Funny, action-packed, and just so much fun; the comic-book team up to beat when it was released and now just brilliantly packed with teases of everything that has come since.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

An almost worthy successor, with some excellent character development, yet another brilliant soundtrack, and a captivating story. Plus, it's utterly stunning to look at. Unfortunately, let down a little by some elements of the humour.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame

A dark, sombre, and slightly terrifying meditation on morality and societal failings wrapped up in beautiful animation, excellent songs, and some bold story choices.

One Man, Two Guvnors

A wonderfully witty pile of slapstick and fun. It peaks a little too early, but that peak is so high you can't really fault it. It's nice to see a modern take on farce that lands this well.

Shrek the Third

Fun enough but a little flat and not on par with either the original or the first sequel on the whole, despite the occasional moment of genius.

Atlantis: The Lost Empire

A beautiful steampunk vision of a non-existent Jules Verne book that can be a little shallow on plot, but largely makes up for it in world building, action, and heart.


A brilliantly acted and directed dive into the morality of science, life, society, and much more. I'm only sorry we missed the alternate casting!

Shrek 2

The rare sequel that - in some ways at least - is better than the original. Overall, I think it does come second, but it's still a fantastically fun film which holds up remarkably well.


A true classic. Funny, clever, heart warming, and with enough hidden references that even 20 years on I'm still finding new things to love and laugh about.

Puss In Boots

A spinoff of a stretched out kids franchise has no right being this much fun. If you're a cat person or Shrek fan, you'll find a lot to like; if not, you'll almost certainly still have a fun ride with scattered laughter throughout.
