Marry Me (12)
Although far from original, this bouncy rom-com has its moments.
A sharp and funny coming of age tale ready to party in 1999.
As modern propaganda goes, this war flick is highly watchable.
An all too obvious thriller that doesn't do its star Michael B. Jordon any favours.
Roland Emmerich returns with a ludicrously silly diasaster flick that's so bad it's good.
Trek to Yomi [Xbox Series X/S, PS5/4, Xbox One, PC]
A beautiful and sublime samurai action game that has all the right moves.
Kirby and the Forgotten Land [Switch]
The original bigmouth strikes again in a sumptuous gaming experience.
Chocobo GP [Switch]
A fun little kart racer spoilt by pesky micro-transactions.
Triangle Strategy [Switch]
A JRPG that will take you on one impressive journey.
Halo Infinite [Xbox Series X/S, PC]
Master Chief finally returns but is it too little too late?
Yet another reboot of a Stephen King story makes it to the screen.
A touching drama that focuses on the politics of the playground.
A fascinating look at a true story of one soldier's never-ending war.
Director Paul Verhoeven's return is less a hard look at religion and more soft porn.
The Outfit (15)
Mark Rylance once again proves that he's on top of his craft in this gripping film.
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.
Before and Laughter by Jimmy Carr
Part autobiography, part self-help book, it's a curious mix that doesn't quite work.
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?
