    Home Sweet Home Alone

    ★★

    Credit to Home Sweet Home Alone for not doing the exact same plot as the iconic Home Alone but the choices are slightly odd. With the focus more to the middle aged cash stricken burglars than the kid, I couldn't work out of it this was for the grown ups or the kids. Good slapstick fun once it gets going and the 2 stars are mostly for Rob Delaney and Ellie Kemper.

  • Red Notice

    Red Notice

    ★★½

    If you're after some nonsensical fun, look no further. Red Notice isn't hugely original and Ryan Reynolds just plays himself but it's the type of popcorn flick we all need sometimes. It's leaping around the world with great stunts and action. Gal Gadot shines the most and actually plays a character. The Rock is just The Rock. Does it need a sequel? No. Will it get one? Probably.

  • The End of the Tour

    The End of the Tour

    ★★★★★

    Picking a moment in David Foster Wallace's life rather than a typical biopic The End of the Tour is able to look to the humanity behind creative genius. Jason Segel is stellar in an understated sensitive performance embodying Wallace. A sharp witty script like you would imagine James Ponsoldt directs perfectly with maturity to give a film that will leave a lasting impression and inspire those alike.

  • Gravity

    Gravity

    ★★★★★

    The hype really couldn't have been higher upon entering the theatre and yet somehow, someway my expectations were well and truly smashed. What Alfonso Cuaron has created is pure magic, it's groundbreaking filmmaking. Every sense is utilised, the sound, the visuals, every possible tool have been used to enhance the narrative and the cinematic experience. Lots has already been said, maybe not too much about the performances. Sandra Bullock is phenomenal. It'll be hard to beat Gravity to film of the year.
