Season one is a meta-humour comedy masterpiece, with an exceptional cast and so many inventive, out-of-the-box ideas it's baffling. From there, it's a bit up-and-down, but it stays just as loveable, exciting, and entertaining throughout. Plus, paintball... 'nuff said!

Onward

A fun film with a great cast and some very imaginative modernisation of traditional fantasy tropes. It may lack the normal depth and spark of a Pixar film, but it's far from being a waste of time.

Black Panther

A beautiful and iconic introduction to one of the more interesting MCU characters, with epic action and a plot that adds some much-needed real-world impact to the MCU.

Rocketman

A fascinating look into the life of one of music's biggest stars, made real by a brilliant cast and incredible leading performance by Taron Egerton.

His Dark Materials

An outstanding adaptation that genuinely stands up to the books, with a brilliant cast and exceptional design. The world of Lyra Silvertongue, a world of dæmons, armoured bears, witches, and cities in the sky, hasn't felt this real, this tangible, or this magical since I first read The Northern Lights.

The World's End

Still funny, still action packed, and still with a great cast... but a little of the magic has slipped at this point. It's a competent close to the Cornetto Trilogy, but it will forever be overshadowed by the films that came before it.

Hot Fuzz

An utterly brilliant, inventive comedy with an amazing creative team, cast, and sense of British humour. Superb.

Giri/Haji

A riveting, introspective look at grief, honour, and familial duty through the joint lens of Japanese and British cultures. With a great storyline and some brilliant characters, it's near perfect with only a slightly jolty ending as a minor hiccough. Well worth a watch.

Shaun of the Dead

Brilliantly funny, scary, and sharp. Still very much deserving of its cult status and prestige, plus boasting a ridiculously good cast in hindsight.

She's The Man

A totally okay remake of Shakespeare's 12th Night somehow centred around high school football that just about works, so long as you don't look too hard at it.

The Gentlemen

Yet another solid entry in Ritchie's gangster filmography, with some great character work, a standout performance by Hugh Grant, plenty of twists, and more than a few pieces of dry humour. Top notch.

The Personal History of David Copperfield

A whimsical Victorian adventure filled with twists, turns, and larger-than-life characters, all grounded by an exceptional cast. Well worth the ride.
