    Harrison Ford brings his gruff charisma but this man-and-CG-dog adventure gets a bit lost in uncanine-y valley.

    Lively remains impressive throughout, but with plot-driven fare like this, such lapses are a let-down.

    An absolute must-see for anyone who loved 2016’s Your Name. Even if it isn’t as surprising and narratively powerful as that film, Weathering With You once again exemplifies Makoto Shinkai’s visionary prowess as an animator.

    Less Tales Of The Unexpected, more Tales Of The Unconvincing, this uneven comedy horror fails to handle its ambitious structure, or deliver on its promising premise.
    • 72 Metascore

    Starting the moment Breaking Bad ended, this is very much a ‘what happened next’ double-episode. Which means, short of resurrecting Walter White, El Camino does precisely what you want it do.
    • 38 Metascore

    To be fair, pulling off complex action sequences in such unforgivingly high definition is a ballsy move—it’s much harder to hide the joins between what was captured in camera and what was added later. But as impressive as the action is—and a Smith-vs.-Smith motorcycle chase in Colombia is a superb sequence worthy of peak Bond—the high-definition format just doesn’t work.

    The scares and monsters are effectively conjured, but if you’re not familiar with Austin Schwartz’s source material, you may be left a little cold.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Dan Jolin
    A stylish portrayal of a literal power struggle based on truly interesting historical figures and events. But it tries to take in too much in too little time, when all it needed was to centre on Edison and Westinghouse.
    • 84 Metascore

    This fourth Toy Story isn’t as essential as the previous films in the series, but there’s no denying the joy of seeing Woody and friends back in action, while once again it’ll likely leave you with a tear in your eye.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Dan Jolin
    Another lavish and largely entertaining Disney re-do, with strong turns from Massoud and Scott. But, appropriately for someone playing a huge, powerful entity trapped in a tiny ornament, Smith’s genie performance feels disappointingly constrained — both by overdependence on the original and some ghastly CGI.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Dan Jolin
    Beats is a truly heartfelt rites-of-passage tale — an immersive, intoxicating portrayal of the rave scene at its peak.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Dan Jolin
    An impressive sift through one of the UK’s weirdest pop-cult phenomena, even if it doesn’t manage to unpick the strange relationship between Sievey and Sidebottom.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Dan Jolin
    A sometimes clunkily executed true-life story which at least has potency in its blend of subject matter and lead actor. Despite often being hard to watch, this is Rosamund Pike’s best work yet.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Dan Jolin
    Best enjoyed for the fun, slick action and the astonishing, super-expressive realisation of Alita herself, because elsewhere it’s cyberpunk business as usual, marred by some sloppy plotting.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 80 Dan Jolin
    A grim, dour dive into one LA cop’s unravelling, which centres on a truly transformative performance from Nicole Kidman.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 80 Dan Jolin
    A based-on-fact family drama whose truths may hit too hard for some, but are worth suffering if only to witness Timothée Chalamet’s performance.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 80 Dan Jolin
    A sharp-witted and wide-reaching account of a bright political hope’s fall from grace, with an impressive ensemble cast and a great performance from Jackman.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Dan Jolin
    A patchy follow-up to the searing ’71 from director Yann Demange, but one which tells a compelling true story and offers a treat of a supporting turn from Matthew McConaughey.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 40 Dan Jolin
    Like Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur, this tries hard to do something new and exciting with an old formula. It quickly makes you wish for something more traditional and straightforward.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Dan Jolin
    It’s as predictable as an Advent calendar, but thanks to Kurt Russell’s grizzly charms, The Christmas Chronicles at least gives us one of the movies’ best Santas yet.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Dan Jolin
    The Coens take another crazy concept and make it work with a series of stories that will amuse, shock, and even bring tears to your eyes.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Dan Jolin
    An uneven but appropriately rousing attack on Trump, which occasionally loses its focus as it makes its bigger, scarier points about the United States’ slide into despotism.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 40 Dan Jolin
    A muddled Wicker Man-inspired horror that has bursts of style, but fails to find depth beneath its blood-spewing surface.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Dan Jolin
    For all the gags flying around, and all the friendly insults batted between Blanchett and Black, the script lacks the sparkle and polish of many of the classic Amblins it so enthusiastically emulates.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Dan Jolin
    Uneven, occasionally unsavoury and at times frustratingly muddled, but there’s enough bloody, ’80s-style fun in The Predator to give it a pass from long-term fans.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Dan Jolin
    It might look like a quirky take on the sports movie, but Puzzle is in fact an astutely crafted character drama, featuring a superb central performance from Kelly Macdonald.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Dan Jolin
    A coming-of-age story which thoughtfully and heartfully tackles the repellent practice of conversion therapy. Moretz is excellent, but this summer camp/institution drama cocktail could have done with a little more fizz.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 40 Dan Jolin
    Who Framed Roger Rabbit meets Meets The Feebles, in a disappointing adult comedy that never lives up to the promise of its premise.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Dan Jolin
    Ultimately, it’s [Okada's] attention to the emotional content, honed over years of writing romantic youth dramas (both animated and live action), that makes ‘Maquia’ so compelling. It’s a coming-of-age story, of sorts, even if the main character can’t age.
