4.5/10 66% The Mule (2018) A dull, drab affair cruelly stretched out to nearly two hours in length, The Mule isn't terrible, it's just not terribly good.‐ What I Watched Tonight

7.5/10 63% Vice (2018) Whatever your leanings or thoughts on Cheney, as a movie Vice is entertaining and solid enough despite its fair share of flaws.‐ What I Watched Tonight

7.5/10 68% Beautiful Boy (2018) The two lead performances are excellent, however, the emotional moments became muffled the more they were repeated and Beautiful Boy ultimately suffers because of this.‐ What I Watched Tonight

3/10 31% Welcome to Marwen (2018) Whilst it's pretty much a write-off across the board, the ambition should be applauded.‐ What I Watched Tonight

7.5/10 87% Colette (2018) Everything is effective, executed proficiently and the performances are wonderful. Colette is certainly very good but falls short of being excellent. ‐ What I Watched Tonight

10/10 81% Green Book (2018) With powerful lead performances, prevalent messages and a real sense of fun, hopefully the rest of 2019 can be as good as Green Book.‐ What I Watched Tonight

7.5/10 64% Bird Box (2018) Bird Box succeeds in being a solid thriller, but, really (and frustratingly) could have been much more.‐ What I Watched Tonight

8/10 79% Mary Poppins Returns (2018) It may not be practically perfect in every way, but it's still a fine, worthy sequel to a bona fide classic.‐ What I Watched Tonight

7.5/10 43% A Cure For Wellness (2017) A movie with a mismatch of threads and motifs, but one that manages to hold them all together and create a satisfyingly creepy, and original, modern horror movie.‐ What I Watched Tonight

4/10 81% Cult of Chucky (2017) Others may enjoy a bit of splatter, but there isn't enough here to promote the franchise stumbling on - put the doll back in the box.‐ What I Watched Tonight

8/10 91% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) It may not be anything particularly new, but the movie presents well-crafted and likable characters, an enjoyable story and some good laughs to create a real feel-good time. ‐ What I Watched Tonight

3.5/10 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) A horror movie for modern times. A huge disappointment for modern times.‐ What I Watched Tonight

8/10 80% Colossal (2017) A tale of booze, abuse, and giant reptiles that somehow works, it's hats off to Nacho Vigalondo for creating an original story and getting weird with it.‐ What I Watched Tonight

8/10 97% Coco (2017) A jubilant burst of colour, music and a celebration of life and legacy.‐ What I Watched Tonight

7.5/10 48% Clown (2016) A few niggles along the way, but an enjoyable watch nonetheless - it felt predictable in parts but also original in others.‐ What I Watched Tonight

5.5/10 19% The Cloverfield Paradox (2018) It's easy to see why it was shuffled to Netflix and not granted a wide release.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2018
7/10 16% The Circle (2017) It succeeds by showing restraint, however, just lacks something that would inject the emotional weight it required.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2018
7.5/10 49% Churchill (2017) Unflinching in its portrayal, Churchill opts for drama ahead of accuracy but still provides interest and offers an altered insight into the legendary leader.‐ What I Watched Tonight

6/10 72% Christopher Robin (2018) Thankfully, excellent animation and inspired voice acting prevent this from being a complete load of Pooh.‐ What I Watched Tonight

7.5/10 72% The Children Act (2018) Very much an 'adult' drama with all of its combined elements, The Children Act is a solid affair on all counts.‐ What I Watched Tonight

8/10 82% Captain Fantastic (2016) A thought-provoking, endearing and charming movie with a marvellous lead performance from Viggo Mortensen. It stuck it to this man!‐ What I Watched Tonight

8/10 95% Call Me by Your Name (2018) It's charming, it's pleasing, it's a bit sexy, it takes apricots to places they've never been before - but it's a strong movie with wonderful messages, subtexts and delivery.‐ What I Watched Tonight

7.5/10 68% Breathe (2017) It may not reach the heights of The Theory of Everything, but Breathe delivers a sweeping, uplifting movie about a story that WAS great to find out more about.‐ What I Watched Tonight

9/10 91% Brawl in Cell Block 99 (2017) Vaughn's unrelentingly great performance anchors a movie that will engage you for every minute of its runtime. Surprisingly very, very good.‐ What I Watched Tonight

7.5/10 84% Borg Vs. McEnroe (2018) Maybe not game, set and match, but Borg vs. McEnroe definitely reaches a solid match point.‐ What I Watched Tonight

7/10 22% The Book of Henry (2017) The Book of Henry is a disjointedly charming movie made with warmth but falls slightly short in its storytelling. It will either infuriate you or suck you in.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2018
7/10 83% Blockers (2018) A comedy that isn't all that funny, Blockers succeeds mostly thanks to the comfy chemistry between its leads and the surprisingly decent message running through it.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2018
6/10 80% Blame (2018) Blame looks good, that's for sure, but it lacks a spark to really be an engaging movie.‐ What I Watched Tonight

7.5/10 90% Blade Runner (1982) I can't put it out there that Blade Runner is the greatest science-fiction movie of all time but it's certainly a very decent sci-fi flick.‐ What I Watched Tonight

5.5/10 72% The Blackcoat's Daughter (February) (2017) The performances are all strong and half of the movie is compelling, well shot and creepy. The other, unfortunately, is the opposite. ‐ What I Watched Tonight

9.5/10 85% Black Swan (2010) Fantastically acted and brilliantly shot, Black Swan is a must. You may love it, you may not, but it's a must watch either way.‐ What I Watched Tonight

9/10 97% Black Panther (2018) Black Panther is a triumph for many reasons, but most importantly, because it's a damn fine movie. ‐ What I Watched Tonight

8/10 74% Berlin Syndrome (2017) It's not a fun movie, but with two strong lead performances snatching every inch of feeling they can grasp, Berlin Syndrome is very much a good movie.‐ What I Watched Tonight

6/10 54% The Belko Experiment (2017) If you like gore, violence and exploding body parts you'll be in for a treat. If you're after a clever subtext, you'll be sorely disappointed.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2018
8/10 79% The Beguiled (2017) Filled with sexual tension, suspense, satirical comedy, issues of morality and survival, this is an intensely watchable movie, and an extremely well-directed one too.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2018
7/10 63% Before I Fall (2017) It's a strange movie, whilst watching it I wasn't sure if I actually liked it but as it rolled on I found myself intrigued in a solid, if predictable, flick. ‐ What I Watched Tonight

8.5/10 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) There's a freshness to this version and through the newfound darkness and shadows, the movie is feel-good and you'll leave humming the iconic songs once more.‐ What I Watched Tonight

7/10 17% Baywatch (2017) It's not a well-crafted movie but what it does is provide some goofy fun and allows the viewer to suspend brain activity for a few hours, and that's just fine by me sometimes.‐ What I Watched Tonight
