4/10 35% Mortal Engines (2018) Alas, Mortal Engines is not as crazy as it thinks it is, nor as deep as it wants to be - and it's certainly not a good movie.‐ What I Watched Tonight

5.5/10 54% Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle (2018) Mowgli isn't the worst movie of the year, it's just a mess tonally, script-wise and has some questionable decisions in regards to voice acting.‐ What I Watched Tonight

9/10 92% The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) Bonkers, attractive, poignant and smothered in Coen goodness, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is a damn fine ode to Old Hollywood and the Wild West.‐ What I Watched Tonight

3/10 70% Adrift (2018) Bland and testing, Adrift takes a tragic, compelling true-life story and makes it simply boring.‐ What I Watched Tonight

7.5/10 78% All the Money in the World (2017) Whilst the movie meanders somewhat at times, through all of the trials and tribulations of simply getting it to the big screen, it stands as a solid bit of storytelling.‐ What I Watched Tonight

6/10 52% 12 Strong (2018) With a plodding, dragged out story and runtime, 12 Strong isn't quite as strong as it should be.‐ What I Watched Tonight

7/10 86% Tully (2018) Two-thirds of the movie is great and Theron is once again excellent - for a raw, yet offbeat, slice of dramatic comedy, Tully delivers the goods. Mostly.‐ What I Watched Tonight

8/10 86% Upgrade (2018) When sci-fi and horror collide successfully, the results are usually positive and Upgrade is another good example of this.‐ What I Watched Tonight

4/10 65% The Little Stranger (2018) Despite so much leaning in its favour, The Little Stranger ends up being bland, lifeless and, sadly, disappointing.‐ What I Watched Tonight

8/10 72% Assassination Nation (2018) A ferocious satire for NOW, when Assassination Nation really ramps up, it hits like a baseball bat to the back of the head.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Dec 3, 2018
6/10 92% Revenge (2018) Whilst the message is necessary, the power is lost in a slow movie that lacks the effectiveness of its French genre contemporaries.‐ What I Watched Tonight

5.5/10 57% The Grinch (2018) Whilst The Grinch may not entirely capture the festive feels, the kids should certainly get a pre-Christmas kick out of it.‐ What I Watched Tonight

3/10 16% Robin Hood (2018) Half-baked and mediocre across the board.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2018
7.5/10 88% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) Though, overall, it lacks the charm of its predecessor, Ralph Breaks the Internet is still a very good sequel from the most unlikely of characters.‐ What I Watched Tonight

6/10 10% The Possession of Hannah Grace (2018) A creepy premise that lent itself to some decent promise falls apart as cliché and convention take over‐ What I Watched Tonight

8/10 83% Creed II (2018) Doesn't hit the heights of its predecessor, but it's still an effective, hard-hitting story that honours what came before and allows Jordan the chance to shine again.‐ What I Watched Tonight

7.5/10 93% CAM (2018) Boasting an excellent lead performance from Brewer and with some good restraint and smart writing, Cam prevails as an alarming, distinct horror-lite effort.‐ What I Watched Tonight
Read More | Posted Nov 26, 2018
8.5/10 62% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Despite some fairly wild deviations from the true stories, Bohemian Rhapsody is still an intensely satisfying movie led by a fearless performance from Rami Malek. ‐ What I Watched Tonight

7.5/10 38% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) There are issues, there are canon contradictions, but when it's good, it works and through the (cluttered) mess of story threads lies some real intrigue for future chapters.‐ What I Watched Tonight

9/10 86% The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) It feels more vital than some of its more recent contemporaries and the optimism that shone through became the movies key asset - aside from the marvellous turn from Moretz. ‐ What I Watched Tonight

8.5/10 63% Outlaw King (2018) For a Netflix movie, Outlaw King is excellent. As a MOVIE, Outlaw King is extremely good.‐ What I Watched Tonight

5.5/10 34% The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018) For all of its sparkly, sweety goodness, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms feels too soulless to really make an impression.‐ What I Watched Tonight

8/10 81% Overlord (2018) The horror, war, and action blend surprisingly well and Overlord delivers an unashamedly fun and bloody experience.‐ What I Watched Tonight

2/10 23% Mile 22 (2018) Mile 22 boasts nothing of any note. Bland and generic - drive twenty-two miles the other way.‐ What I Watched Tonight

2.5/10 14% Winchester (2018) Winchester is entirely forgettable and I'd be lying if I didn't admit to getting heavy-lidded during the movie.‐ What I Watched Tonight

1.5/10 15% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) Throwaway, cheesy, cliché, cringy, unscary, nauseating - feel free to carry on.‐ What I Watched Tonight

5/10 67% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) It's all a bit too mundane to be as magical as it aspires to be. For all of its potential, The House with a Clock in Its Walls seems like a major missed opportunity. ‐ What I Watched Tonight
