    Andy’s favourite sci-fi movie won’t be yours. But it’s a fun adventure with animation that sucks your eyeballs from their sockets.

    No cynicism, just on-point sentiment and scintillating set-pieces. Top Gun: Maverick scores a direct hit on its twin targets of nostalgia and adrenaline.

    After pretty much inventing the modern-day comedy drama, Judd Apatow here gets frivolous, to patchy effect.

    It’s a bonkers, ballistic, brain-numbing ride.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Jamie Graham
    An intergenerational family drama, a search for self, and a big, bouncy comedy sure to entertain.

    Jackass Forever has laughs and thrills and will goose your nostalgia, but it’s like a modern-day Rolling Stones gig – the hits are replayed but satisfaction is elusive.

    The stalk ‘n’ slash sequences, though decent, can’t match Craven’s mastery of mood and mechanics, but the new guys understand that Scream movies are sick as well as slick.

    Performances pop as Earth gets the chop, with US politics, big business and social media going up in flames.

    Trumpeted by Netflix as a ‘new-school western’, The Harder They Fall in fact takes the staples of old-school westerns (bandits, bank jobs, train robberies, rowdy taverns, shootouts) but blends them all together in a manner that feels fresh and vibrant.

    Some entertaining bicker-banter, but you may feel like Venom craving human heads: undernourished and angsty for what could’ve been.

    Something of a companion piece to the superior Finding Nemo, this is one of Pixar’s weaker efforts but still worth catching.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Jamie Graham
    It's overlong and laboured in places, but worth a bite for the money-shot set-pieces. Plus... zombie tiger!

    While some viewers may want more explosions and twists, there's no denying Michael B. Jordan makes for a riveting action hero in Without Remorse

    Watching these famous monsters share the screen for the first time since 1963’s King Kong Vs. Godzilla, in a series of expertly choreographed battles, packs real wallop, even if you can’t help wishing that screen was 30ft high at your local cinema.

    Malcolm & Marie is a film of the moment, powered by Covid, BLM and #MeToo – but good enough to stand the test of time.

    We’ve all been waiting for Gadot, and it was worth it. A much-needed blockbuster full of humour, spectacle and optimism.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Jamie Graham
    No ray guns, no tentacular beasties, just gravitas in a film that goes boldly about its business but never quite lands.
    • 79 Metascore

    After 30 years of gestation, Mank emerges one of the great films on the machinations of Hollywood
    • 76 Metascore

    An emotionally tough watch – though an exhilarating one tahnks to Aaron Sorkin's reliably taught script and direction
    • 82 Metascore

    OK, so the ‘Nam firefights are more routine than we’d expect from Lee and the treasure hunt element almost feels it belongs to a different film, but this is a frequently fierce, fascinating picture. The world needs it right now.

    The animation is spellbinding as Onward builds into a galloping adventure full of amusement, excitement and enchantment.

    Bong has once more proved what an exciting filmmaker he is, and Parasite is strong contender for Oscar Best Picture.

    Delivers as a Friday-night actioner, with some smart moves and good banter. Smith and Lawrence are on crackerjack form.

    Tries to fit in so much it threatens to tear apart at the seams, but ultimately rises to the impossible occasion.

    Some of the vibrancy has worn off but this Rock-solid sequel has enough giggles and gasps to attract herds of viewers.

    Don’t overlook this spiritual sequel to "The Shining." But don’t expect it get close to Kubrick’s original, either.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Jamie Graham
    The ghosts of Scorsese’s past can be found in these gaunt GoodFellas. An engrossing and, yes, haunting epic.
    • 38 Metascore

    Come for the technical innovations, stay for… hmm. Two Will Smiths for the price of one just ain’t worth it.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Jamie Graham
    Awkwafina and Zhao shine in a deft comedy-drama with a higher US per-screen take than Avengers: Endgame.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Jamie Graham
    A mix of the intimate and cosmic that shoots for the stars. You’ll float… and sometimes bump back to earth.
