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.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

A competent fleshing out of the wider Star Wars narrative in a way that gives a lot of much-loved characters room to breath. Nicely builds on the themes of the prequels whilst setting in play the themes of the original trilogy at the same time.

Episode II: Attack of the Clones

Some decent narrative ideas, but lacks any standout moments and ultimately marred by how poorly written Anakin is and how little the central romance works.

Thunder Force

A middle-of-the-road superhero comedy with a few rare moments of laughter and one genius man-crab 🦀

Brooklyn 99

An absolutely brilliant new contender for the office comedy crown, with an exceptional cast and a surprisingly nuanced, modern, and human set of characters. There are some dips in certain seasons, but for the most part it continues to be charming, witty, and heartfelt.

Alien Worlds

A solid piece of spec-bio with a diverse range of specialists involved, though a little overly simplified in terms of the science presented and with a slightly lacklustre final episode.

6 Underground

An over-the-top action bonanza with some exceptional stunt work and a perfectly serviceable plot, but it won't be pushing any boundaries or reinventing any genres any time soon.

Wreck-It Ralph

A fun adventure with some interesting ideas and a whole load of brilliant gaming cameos, but the plot isn't exactly nuanced or complex.

The Foreigner

A surprisingly nuanced action film, with an intriguing take on modern Northern Irish politics counterbalanced with some great action sequences. A weird mashup, sure, but it works for the most part.
