  • Dark Phoenix

    Dark Phoenix

    ★★★

    It's far from the best but at least Dark Phoenix eliminates the bad taste left behind by the awful Apocalypse. Not so sure we will see much from this generation of X-Men now.

    To be fair, it could easily see another reboot and the likes of Jubilee, Gambit, Rogue, Bishop at the forefront, let alone a really ambitious take on the Sentinels

  • Saint Frances

    Saint Frances

    ★★★★

    Bold and brave with its focal points, Saint Frances is just a lovely little film. I may or may not have had a big lump in my throat at the end...

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    ★★★★★

    Definitely holding up on second watch, The Winter Soldier possesses everything you would ever want from a Marvel outing.

    Exceptional screenplay, unbelievable stunts and a humour that subtlety works its magic without becoming overbearing.

    This is THE benchmark Marvel offering.

    Also, did anyone else notice the mention of Stephen Strange? Proud of that little easter egg find

  • Killer Joe

    Killer Joe

    ★★★★

    Brutal, sadistic vision of Texan life gone wrong. McConaughey is brilliant, Temple on top form. Proves food poisoning may not be the worst thing involved with KFC
