    • 80 Matt Maytum
    A bold, entertaining riot that captures the manic energy of its lead character and ushers in a gang you’ll want to join.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Maytum
    Sam Mendes audacious WW1 epic is a sensational technical achievement, grounded by George MacKay’s gritty intensity.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Maytum
    A solid sequel that hits the right notes and entertains without ever being quite as satisfying or essential as the original.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 40 Matt Maytum
    A so-so Christmas romance undercut by some baffling choices, musically and narratively. A wasted opportunity.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 40 Matt Maytum
    An uninspired and unnecessary sequel that won’t leave you spellbound. There’s neither enough Maleficent or genuine magic to make it worth a revisit.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Maytum
    Two immensely enjoyable central performances and some of the best race sequences yet filmed fuel an otherwise standard sports movie.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Maytum
    Daniel Craig is on fine form leading a killer cast in Rian Johnson’s boisterously enjoyable murder mystery. All the evidence points to a winner.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Maytum
    A fleet-footed and boisterously enjoyable Dickens adaptation that breathes new life into a well-worn story. A winning Dev Patel leads a highly amusing cast.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Maytum
    The ’toon still rules when it comes to heart, but this shot-for-shot remake is an impressively mounted, visually breathtaking nostalgia rush.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Maytum
    Midsommar features a standout performance from Florence Pugh and an expertly assembled atmosphere of dread, even if its lacks the propulsion and all-consuming terror of Hereditary.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Maytum
    About as funny and charming as superhero movies get. Expect it to make household names out of its title character and leading man.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Maytum
    A satisfying standalone launch for Marvel’s latest superhero combines sci-fi action with ’90s nostalgia. Overcoming minor stumbles, it ultimately soars.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Matt Maytum
    Impressive VFX and bursts of action can’t mask the fact that this is a tonally confused start for a sci-fi franchise hopeful, made up of scrap parts you’ve seen put to better use elsewhere.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Maytum
    Shyamalan concludes his secret trilogy with a film easier to admire than love. McAvoy is terrific again, but Glass doesn’t quite live up to the lofty heights of Unbreakable and Split.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Matt Maytum
    A joyful, trippy new incarnation of Spider-Man that you didn’t know you needed, brimming with wit, soul and jaw-dropping visuals.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Maytum
    A so-so sequel enlivened by a few inspired moments. Ralph and Vanellope are still good company, but this concept might have worked better as a series of shorts.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Maytum
    Paul Feig makes a slight gear change for a slick thriller that’s best enjoyed with a martini in hand.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Maytum
    The latest Halloween installment is fun while it lasts, but unlike its predecessor, it’s not a classic for the ages.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Maytum
    A low-key charmer, this lovingly-crafted, melancholic movie is a big, comforting hug of a film.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Maytum
    With inventive action and a gag-rate that bests most comedies, Ant-Man and the Wasp is the kind of slick entertainment you’ve come to expect from the MCU, with Rudd and Lilly’s winning double act at the centre.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Matt Maytum
    A tour-de-force turn from Toni Collette powers one of the most affecting horrors in recent memory. Genuinely unsettling in a way few genre efforts are: you’ve been warned.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 100 Matt Maytum
    The Avengers latest stand feels well worth the wait. It’s not perfect, but it goes to a place most tentpole movies wouldn’t dream of, while retaining the scale, excitement, and humour you’ve come to demand from an MCU movie.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Maytum
    A short, sharp shock of a thriller that demonstrates the versatility and range of both Soderbergh and Foy.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Maytum
    A solid espionage thriller that’s lifted by its charismatic leads, Red Sparrow commits to the brutality of its subject matter, meaning it’s never easy viewing.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Maytum
    Claflin and Bettany stand out among an impressive ensemble in a harrowing, powerful WW1 drama well worth enduring.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 40 Matt Maytum
    All the signs pointed to a hit chiller: great cast, a director with fantastic form and a celebrated Jo Nesbø novel to draw from. So it’s a huge shame, then, that The Snowman is a bit grey and slushy when it should have been cool and crisp.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Maytum
    Fun, fleeting entertainment if you’re after more of the same, but fails to carve out any fresh ground.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Maytum
    Cruise is on top form in a based-on-fact thriller that overcomes its familiar trappings with audacious details and flat-out pacing.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Maytum
    If the formula feels familiar, the girls’ personalities obliterate any chance of tedium, with Broadway producer-turned-director Amanda Lipitz providing sensitive insight into their home lives while capturing the toe-tapping with joyful aplomb.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Maytum
    Theron is totally badass in a relentless thriller that never takes its foot off the gas. Bold and brash, with some of the year’s most bruising fight scenes.
