    Last Night in Soho

    ★★★

    This film is a hot mess.

    Both Anya Taylor-Joy and Thomasin McKenzie are great, Anya Taylor-Joy makes pretty much anything better just by featuring in it and this is no different.

    There's a solid concept here, there's lots of style (visually this is amazing and nightmarish in equal parts) but the retro visuals of 1960's London and some needle drops can't compensate for the pacing and uneven writing.

    Jumanji: The Next Level

    ★★★★

    This is a classic example of a big budget franchise film that doesn't get the praise it really deserves.

    Not only is it a great follow up to an impressive new take on Jumanji, but it completely works from the perspective of Jumanji being reworked as a computer game.

    The ensemble cast are great. There's a genuine sense of fun and adventure running through everything here. A chase sequence involving rope bridges and a horde of mandrills is a particular highlight.

    The addition of Danny Devito and Danny Glover as cantankerous old friends is a sublime touch.

    Terminator: Dark Fate

    ★★★★

    Ever since Terminator 2: Judgement Day way back in 1991 the best thing to come from the Terminator franchise is an underrated TV series back in 2008 named The Sarah Connor Chronicles starring Lena Headey in the title role a few years before she would become infamous in another TV series.

    Dark Fate, the sixth film, ignores all the films since James Cameron's last offering (like many Terminator fans do). Importantly it serves as a reminder of how integral Linda…
