‘Uncut Gems’ is a deeply unpleasant experience that I wholeheartedly recommend. Starring Adam Sandler in a performance that definitely should have got him an Oscar nomination, the film moves at a million miles a minute and never lets up.Read More Uncut Gems (2020) Review
in ‘1917’, Sam Mendes shows Christopher Nolan how it’s meant to be done. Shot in a much-discussed ‘single take’, it’s as much a horror film as a war film.Read More We Just Watched… 1917 (2020)
‘Jojo Rabbit’ is the latest film from the one and only Taika Waititi – and tackles the toughest subject matter. But with a talented young cast and buckets of charm, he pulls it off. Here are our thoughts.Read More We Just Watched… Jojo Rabbit (2020)
Netflix’s divorce epic is a fantastic film, with a wonderful cast and challenging story.

Here are our thoughts.Read More We Just Watched… Marriage Story (2019)

2010 feels like a long time ago. In that year, we were all in the cinema watching Inception or Toy Story 3. Marvel’s Cinematic Universe was still in its infancy. Most people still hadn’t heard of Breaking Bad, while Game of Thrones was still a year away.
