    Fleischer made a better comedy-horror with Zombieland, but Venom’s a decent buddy actioner. You might even laugh your head off.

    “YOU RIPPED MY FAVOURITE SHIRT!” Cage loses it in a bloody, druggy, superbly crafted revenge thriller. Astonishing.
    • 67 Metascore

    A retro science-fiction actioner with both brains and brawn – quite a lot of brawn, actually. Surely destined for cult status.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Jamie Graham
    Furious, relevant, and funny as hell.

    McQuarrie brings grace and grit, and Cruise brings it, period. This quick-witted, fleet-footed franchise shows no sign of flagging.
    • 85 Metascore

    Paul Schrader’s best for 20 years. A stunning study of one man’s flaws and an apocalyptic vision of mankind’s fate.

    Be sure to make family time for Bird’s flawed but dazzling sequel. “Superheroes suck,” says Violet. No, they most certainly don’t.

    After a first half that suggests franchise fatigue is setting in, Fallen Kingdom zooms in for some scarily good set-pieces.
    • 62 Metascore

    Far better than we had any right to expect. Thrilling set-pieces, spine-tingling iconography and a Han/Chewie bromance to savour.
    • 62 Metascore

    A decent adaptation of McEwan’s excellent novella. Forget Fifty Shades – this is sex to make your cheeks blush.

    Like Pacino’s Shakespeare rumination Looking For Richard (1996), Wilde Salomé is passionate and absorbing, though the insertion of lengthy clips from the film might irk viewers who’ve just watched it.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Jamie Graham
    Not in the Bridesmaids league but a very funny female-centric comedy with big laughs and spot-on attitudes.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Jamie Graham
    Vikander packs a punch but this Tomb Raider is a long way off the Holy Grail of the first three Indy movies.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Jamie Graham
    An exploitation movie that, paradoxically, exhibits too much good taste. Still, expect “Saws all!” to become a 2018 catchphrase.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Jamie Graham
    No small achievement. Alexander Payne re-confirms his position as one of US cinema’s premier filmmakers.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Jamie Graham
    It’s hardly fresh, but the spectacle is decent and the relationship dynamics absorb just enough to fill the lengthy run time.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Jamie Graham
    McDormand is an unstoppable force in a fiercely intelligent, profanely poetic movie that shifts tonal gears at breakneck speed.
    • 40 Metascore

    Fans will find just enough heart-swelling moments involving friendships and family to enjoy one last group hug.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Jamie Graham
    An excellent middle chapter bursting with wit, wisdom, emotion, shocks, old-fashioned derring-do, state-of-the-art tech, and stonking set-pieces.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Jamie Graham
    This is also a Christmas horror-comedy – and one of the best since Gremlins.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Jamie Graham
    Poverty and poetry, delinquency and deluxe wonder… this child’s-eye view of lives on a knife-edge is terrific.
    • 52 Metascore

    Kenneth Branagh finds interesting ways to grease the wheels of this new take on the oft-filmed novel.
    • 58 Metascore

    This funny, touching adap of Shrabani Basu’s 2010 biography has its own chemistry, withering wit and unsentimental message of acceptance. A royal treat.
    • 64 Metascore

    The plotting is tangled, the emotional undertow slight, but the action keeps on coming, including a blistering multi-player sword fight on speeding bikes.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Jamie Graham
    It
    Thrilling and haunting, pitching the power of adventure and friendship against the day-to-day horrors of childhood and a chilling Pennywise. An absolute scream.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Jamie Graham
    The doc-flavoured approach lends both urgency and tedium, while the blend of miniatures, stop-motion and CGI references the various looks of his 63-year history.
    • 56 Metascore

    OK, so enough time is spent on the fairways to put some viewers off, but Tommy’s Honour scores a hole in one with its unpacking of the class wars at play.
    • 40 Metascore

    Much mellowing and life-learning ensues in a plodding dramedy, though the glint in MacLaine’s eyes makes it almost worth your while. Almost.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 80 Jamie Graham
    No Badlands, but the best of the recent minor Malicks. And it features Val Kilmer with a chainsaw.
    • 77 Metascore

    "Dunkirk" has a rival in the intensity stakes. Expect Bigelow’s deep-cutting drama to be part of the conversation come awards season.
