Tea with the Dames

★★★★½ - THE DOMINION POST  - "A delightful time with a real Fantastic Four" Marvel and DC's respective universes might have their star-laden Justice Leagues and Avengers, but this West Sussex-set adventure is home to the screen's real fantastic four. They have a combined age of more than 340,...

Ocean's 8

★★★★ - TIME OUT  - The Ocean‘s formula gets a fresh spin in a heist caper with style. A cooler-than-thou band of criminals, a smoothly executed grand heist, flawless costumes. Expanding on the handsome attributes of the Ocean’s franchise with a radiant cast and sufficient NYC groove, ‘Hunger...

Tea with the Dames

★★★★★ - THE GUARDIAN  - Dench, Smith, Eileen Atkins and Joan Plowright engage in a round-table war of theatrical anecdotes in this outrageously funny film.  The laughter and pure hysteria are infectious in this wildly enjoyable film. I can’t for the life of me think of any other recent...

Number One

★★★★★ - DOMINION POST  - In the gleaming high-rise office blocks of Paris, a bloodless coup plays out. Emmanuelle Blachey is an engineer and senior boardmember at a major energy corporate. The position of CEO at France’s largest water provider is about to come vacant, and Emmanuelle is being urged...

Deadpool 2

★★★★ - NEWSHUB  - Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) and his gutter-mouthed, arse-kicking, not-so alter ego are back for a sequel and it's called, yep, Deadpool 2. Like the first, the premise here is essentially moot; a flimsy spider-web of a story upon which to collect a veritable feast of...

Solo: A Star Wars Story

★★★★ - EMPIRE  - After young “Scrumrat” Han (Alden Ehrenreich) escapes the slums of Corellia, he vows to one day return for Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke), the love he left behind. After, that is, he’s somehow managed to get himself a ship and make a heap of money. Along the way, he takes up with a gang of...

Number One

★★★½ - NZ HERALD  - Perfectly timed for the #MeToo era comes a corporate drama about an executive headhunted to become the first French woman to head a major French company, one of the CAC40 (the French equivalent of the Dow Jones). Emmanuelle Devos stars as Emmanuelle Blachey, a 40-something...

Deadpool 2

★★★★ - EMPIRE  - Having reunited with fiancée Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), Wade Wilson/Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) continues with his own brand of superhero crime-fighting. But when fellow mutant Cable (Josh Brolin) travels from the future to kill a super-powered child, Deadpool forms team X-Force to...

Solo: A Star Wars Story

★★★★ - THE GUARDIAN  - Solo: A Star Wars Story is a crackingly enjoyable adventure which frankly deserves full episode status in the great franchise, not just one of these intermittent place-holding iterations. Ron Howard was born to direct it. Who’s next for the saga? Zemeckis? Spielberg?  ...

Tully

★★★★½ - ROLLING STONE  - Just in time for Mother's Day comes Tully, starring a firing-on-all-cylinders Charlize Theron as Marlo, a wife and mom of three, including a newborn. She's about to come apart at the seams, and you're about to say that you've seen this before. Think again.  Director Jason...

Avengers: Infinity War

★★★★ - THE GUARDIAN  - Not infinity perhaps, but a really, really big finity war. Colossal, cataclysmic, delirious, preposterous – and always surreally entertaining in the now well-established Marvel movie tradition. It’s a gigantic showdown between a force of cosmic wickedness and a chaotically...

Isle of Dogs

★★★★ - THE GUARDIAN  - It’s set in Japan, though east London’s Isle of Dogs just happens to be a short drive from 3 Mills Studios, which did a lot of the work on this film. So maybe our Isle of Dogs influenced the director, Wes Anderson. Or maybe he chose the title because it sounds like: “I love...
