Late Night

★★★★ - ROLLING STONE  - Book Tickets Here -  Watching Emma Thompson and Mindy Kaling mix it up in Late Night will make you think you’ve died and gone to hilarity heaven. In Kaling’s woke script, the Oscar-winning British actress for Howards End plays Katherine Newbury, a late-night talk show host...

Late Night

★★★★ - THE GUARDIAN  - I wish I was a woman of colour so I could get a job with zero qualification!” The authentic voice of establishment self-pity is given here in all its foot-stamping shrillness. Mindy Kaling is the writer and star of this warm and witty film, playing Molly, a...

Diego Maradona

★★★★ - THE GUARDIAN  - A bit of cheating and a lot of genius.” That’s how someone in this film summarises the Argentinian football megastar Diego Maradona after his triumphant performance in the 1986 World Cup, and it seems fair. The film gives you a chance to gauge how the cheating was a minor...

The Keeper

★★★★ - STUFF  - St Helens are a football club in crisis. Haunted by the spectre of relegation, their first team's recent performances have been lacklustre, to say the least. It's a situation which has left manager Jack Friar (John Henshaw) tearing his hair out in frustration, especially when his...

Booksmart

★★★★ - THE GUARDIAN - During the first act of SXSW crowd-pleaser Booksmart there’s a fantastically humbling, game-changer of a moment for Molly (Beanie Feldstein), a smart if smug overachiever desperately tying up administrative loose ends on her last day of high school. She’s in a toilet cubicle,...

Spider-Man

★★★★ - SYDNEY MORNING HERALD - In Spider-Man: Far From Home, Peter Parker is still struggling to reconcile his desire to be an ordinary high-school kid with his obligation to help save the world whenever he’s asked – which is often. His crush on his classmate MJ (the singer Zendaya) has reached...

Toy Story 4

★★★★★ - STUFF There's a new Sheriff in town. Yes, Woody (Tom Hanks) may have adjusted to life without his beloved Andy in his home with Bonnie, but he's also had to get used to playing second-fiddle to Jesse (Joan Cusack). In fact, having experienced being left in the closet for the third time...

Yesterday

★★★★ - STUFF Rock This Road, Dinosaur, The Summer Song. Jack Malik's (Himesh Patel) music career hasn't exactly been hit-filled.  For 10 years, the struggling Suffolk singer-songwriter has been "profoundly unsuccessful", playing in deserted town centres, windswept boardwalks and barely partronised...

Parasite

★★★★★ - STUFF Back in 1896, HG Wells wrote – in the serial novel The Time Machine – of a distant, future Earth in which humans had evolved into two, distinct species. There were the small, effete and basically useless Eloi, who lived above the ground. And the brutish, cunning Morlocks, who...

Toy Story 4

★★★★ - THE GUARDIAN Last year, I wrote about my (unfounded) fears that Mary Poppins Returns might trample the memory of a movie I fell in love with as a child. I felt a similar anxiety about Toy Story 4, after arguing that the first three movies formed cinema’s first “note-perfect trilogy”. Despite...

Yesterday

★★★★ - BBC.COM Richard Curtis writes romantic comedies – Four Weddings and a Funeral and Love Actually are the best – so enticing that we wish they were real. His films are believable enough emotionally to be both joyful and heartbreaking, while their characters and situations are more colourful...
