The new animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is generating awards buzz and may very well be the best animated movie of the year.
Alfonso Cuarón’s award-winning new film Roma will screen in Prague’s Kino Aero along with some of the director’s most noteworthy titles.
Festival hit The Favourite from Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos is finally coming to Czech cinemas this January.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald does overindulge on the ‘franchise’ moments and is rather plot heavy at times but it generally casts a decent spell. Characters are well grounded and the tie-in to the ‘Potter-verse’ is well crafted and shows that the truly gifted J.K. Rowling still has what it takes.
A very mediocre attempt at reigniting the Millenium franchise, The Girl in the Spider’s Web is void of passion, meaning and suspense. A dull and almost lifeless action movie that is a tremendous waste of talent. As a standalone film it’s bad, but as a follow-up to a David Fincher movie, it’s terrible.
Bohemian Rhapsody is a formulaic band movie that struggles to get Queen’s story off the ground in an original and captivating way, but the Live Aid finale almost makes the whole thing worthwhile – it’s that and Rami Malek’s stupendous performance that save this film.
The 19th Mezipatra Queer Film Festival is fast approaching and the festival has just released their programme along with this year’s theme, ‘Beyond Reality’, which promises to fully immerse audiences in fantasy and vivid imagination.
Halloween is an exhilarating and entertaining horror film that’s not only one of the best recent slasher films, but the best outing in the franchise for a long time. Bloody good fun.
