4/5 83% Creed II (2018) Gripping and poignant, Creed II marks the humble passing of the mantle. Just need Mr. T's son for next time.‐ FrewFilm

3/5 63% Suspiria (2018) A beguiling, macabre, at times feverish remake with more to admire than enjoy. It'll churn your soul. ‐ FrewFilm

2/5 38% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) Razzle dazzle doesn't save this problematic foray into the pre-Potter world of witchcraft and wizardry. ‐ FrewFilm

1/5 8% The Emoji Movie (2017) This is more than a flop - it is an unmitigated cinematic disaster that deserves to be mercilessly beaten in a brutal, bloody fashion.‐ FrewFilm

5/5 85% It (2017) No matter how hard you try, you can never be freed from the violent grip of IT, set to send many's sleep patterns into a self destructive cycle.‐ FrewFilm

4/5 87% Wind River (2017) If I were to give it a name, it'd be a neo-western-noir mystery thriller. Cinema would be a better place if there was more of them.‐ FrewFilm

4/5 70% mother! (2017) Disgusting, pretentious, anxiety-inducing, breathlessly bold and unforgettable.‐ FrewFilm

3/5 52% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Vaughn has tailored this berserk, ultraviolent, supersized follow-up for the fans, but forgot to sew the character development seam along the way.‐ FrewFilm

5/5 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Villeneuve's masterpiece is an impeccably realised, extraordinary sci-fi neo-noir that will be noted as one of the greatest ever blockbusters. ‐ FrewFilm

1/5 8% The Snowman (2017) You'll go in looking for an ice-cold, grisly chiller. Instead you'll be served the equivalent of a tepid cup of Bovril - and I really hate Bovril. ‐ FrewFilm

2/5 72% The Ritual (2017) An inspiringly mediocre seasonal horror that you'll remember for the laughs rather than the scares, and even then, there's not a huge amount.‐ FrewFilm

3/5 71% Happy Death Day (2017) It's fun, wickedly cheeky and ultimately entertaining. But, I wouldn't want to relive it again.‐ FrewFilm

2/5 57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) Not quite a train wreck - but bloody close. ‐ FrewFilm

2/5 19% Daddy's Home 2 (2017) Its most memorable quality is the fact it manages to squeeze 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' and 'St. Elmo's Fire' into the space of one sequence. ‐ FrewFilm

5/5 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) A glorious cinematic tour-de-force, a sci-fi gift that never stops giving, a real achievement.‐ FrewFilm

4/5 84% Darkest Hour (2017) As a marvellous character study, with Oldman heading up the film with a soon-to-be Oscar-winning performance, it is unmissable. ‐ FrewFilm

4/5 83% Deadpool 2 (2018) This is Deadpool at maximum capacity; filthy, hilarious, blood-soaked mayhem with more than a few tricks up its sleeve. Don't miss that mid-credits stinger. ‐ FrewFilm

2/5 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Solo isn't terrible, it isn't great; it's fine. A serviceable, if unmemorable space western that is pretty much redundant.‐ FrewFilm

3/5 48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Bayona's adrenaline-fuelled, sometimes emotional, often nightmarishly scary effort is brought roaringly to life by the Jurassic stars of the show.‐ FrewFilm

5/5 89% Hereditary (2018) An outstandingly horrifying achievement from a debut filmmaker, Hereditary is a classic in the making, built on rock-solid, terrifying, atmospheric terror. ‐ FrewFilm

2/5 68% Ocean's 8 (2018) A slapdash heist caper with an enjoyable breeziness but a frustrating lack of suspense.‐ FrewFilm
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2018
4/5 63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) An often shocking, uncompromising and thrilling sequel that does well to build upon its predecessor's foundations. It's no Villeneuve, but it's damn good. ‐ FrewFilm
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2018
4/5 84% Game Night (2018) A humdinger of a big studio comedy, never taking itself so seriously that it loses its charms but also being brave enough to indulge in some adult-only jollity. ‐ FrewFilm
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2018
2/5 54% The First Purge (2018) A bitter blaxploitation flick that tarnishes the Purge name. ‐ FrewFilm
