latest film, dvd, blu-ray, game, music & book reviews
The Father (15)
Anthony Hopkins is in Oscar-winning mode for this outstanding drama.
A supremely sunny Disney Pixar animation that's a pure joy.
First Cow (15)
A gentle western that milks its story a little too much.
The Unholy (15)
A strong story is let down by some god awful execution.
Eddie Izzard stars in this credible historical drama.
Cris Tales [Xbox Series X/S, PS5/PS4, Switch, PC]
A great looking RPG that's let down by some really bad bosses.
Mario Golf: Super Rush [Switch]
Certainly a different spin on a golf game, but do really need, the need for speed?
Knockout City [Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5/PS4, Switch PC]
It's dodgeball the video game as you take on all comers with your balls of fury!
It may an RPG lite, but this creative, colourful world is highly accessible.
New Pokémon Snap [Switch]
Gotta snap 'em all in this relaxing sequel.
Gunpowder Milkshake (15)
An insipid take on the female assassin, starring Karen Gillan.
Yet another insipid take on the female assassin, not starring Karen Gillan.
A soulful biopic on the Queen of Soul that's just too darn respectful.
An intriguing 9/11 drama that asks what price human life?
Here Today (15)
An ill-fitting comedy with the unlikey pairing of Billy Crystal and Tiffany Haddish.
Not Your Muse by Celeste
A stunning debut by the already award-winning British singer.
The Long Goodbye by Riz Ahmed
Actor Riz Ahmed spits some mean bars for his debut album.
Why Me? Why Not by Liam Gallagher
Liam's Q and A session comes up with all the right answers.
Suspiria by Thom Yorke
Yorke goes to Hollywood with horrific results.
Wanderer by Cat Power
The queen of folk has her purr back.
Coal Black Mornings by Brett Anderson
Suede's front man beautifully recalls his life leading up to Britpop-dom.
Parsnips, Buttered by Joe Lycett
How to complain with style and panache.
Gironimo! by Tim Moore
Not quite nul points for otherwise brilliant travel humourist Moore's latest labour of love.
Who Is Tom Ditto? by Danny Wallace
Danny Wallace asks a question for his new novel. But will you care for the answer?
Apocalypse Now Now by Charlie Human
This fresh debut is a little bit like Grange Hill on crack with monsters. What's not to love?
