REVIEW: Paddington 2

4 Stars (4 / 5)

 

That adventurous, well-mannered British bear has returned to the big screen1… and not a moment too soon!

Filth is a raunchy, foul-mouthed bit of soul searching for a maniacal James McAvoy

3.5 Stars (3.5 / 5)

 

The medical standard for Irvine Welsh adaptations is undoubtedly still Trainspotting, made back in the midst of the Britpop era (1996).

Cloud Atlas is a whole lotta movie without quite enough reason for existing

3 Stars (3 / 5)
