An original and refreshing take on the X-men genre, and honestly, exactly what the franchise needed. Unfortunately though, the build-up was much more satisfying than the finale.
The live-action adaptation of the cult anime Ghost in the Shell is probably one of the most visually perfect films to grace our screens so far this year. It's great to have some cyber punk to sink our teeth into again, but its poor attempts at provoking emotional responses and philosophical debate bring it down to your standard 3-star action film.
Not to be confused with the Stephen King book, Christine is an unconventional biopic about one Florida news reporter and her struggle adapting to the rise of sensationalist media. A harrowing yet fascinating film, and a career best performance from Rebecca Hall.
Werner Herzog's latest film is a bigger disaster than the impending ecological doom at the heart of its narrative. A waste of resources, and an immense waste of talented actors. What on earth happened here?
A wonderful feel good romp, bursting at the seams with nostalgia and classic 80s tunes. It's Once but with lovable teenage misfits.
One of the stand-outs at Prague Febio Fest so far, A Monster Calls is a carefully constructed masterpiece that dwells on life and death, and everything in between. A superb exercise in psychology and grief through the eyes of a child.
An unconventional thriller that relies on intense realism and first class source dialogue from the play by David Harrower. Rooney Mara is an unstoppable force.
