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.

Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian

A fun-filled sequel that dials everything – including the ridiculousness – up to 11, with some stellar performances, great effects, and genuinely funny moments, even if the plot is a bit cookie-cutter.

Night at the Museum

A fun-filled, cameo-packed advert for museums everywhere with plenty to enjoy, even if there isn't a huge amount of depth.

The Old Guard

A really well crafted take on the concept of immortality with exceptional action and some brilliant performances from the main cast.

High School Musical

A totally fine TV movie that had just enough star power and one great song, but it doesn't feel like it's ageing too well.

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

Who knew that Hollywood would manage to produce a movie that somehow does the ridiculous spectacle of Eurovision justice, whilst crafting an entertaining and surprisingly musical comedy in the process.

Adaptation

A fascinating mixture of creative talents leads to a fairly lacklustre and amateurish attempt at meta storytelling. It's weird and there are some brilliant performances, but I'm not sure it ever manages to justify it's own decisions.

The Princess Diaries

Comfort food in film form. There's nothing overly nourishing on offer, but it's still highly enjoyable and will leave you feeling all warm and full-up of good vibes.

The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement

More pantomime than reality, but somehow that works out very much in its favour, becoming a rare sequel that appears to have improved on the original in just about every way. Funnier, more quotable, and with an expanded all-star cast; a whole lot of fun.

Mean Girls

A fun flick with more depth and talent than it ever needed, which has helped it hold up nearly 20 years later.
