Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’s winning combination of infectious energy, gorgeous aesthetic and laugh out loud humour more than makeup for the uneven storytelling. Dominic Kwaczynski reviews.

Words with Tom Vincent

An image hardly unfitting for a bunch of lofty, rancid youths; but still in comic contrast to the shirted, contemplative man sipping his coffee before me. Ryan Suckling interviews Tom Vincent.

Review: Berlin Syndrome

The film actively resists the sensationalism of a horror or other confinement thrillers, and in some ways – because of this and the questions Clare’s relationship with her captor raises – it is more terrifying. Julian Coleman reviews.

Review: Power Rangers

At first the shift from drama to camp is quite jarring, yet by the time the teens are all suited up and the Power Rangers theme kicks in, it’s hard not to give in to its shamelessness. Dominic Kwaczynski reviews.

Review: Lion

Lion is a beautiful film about human relationships and perseverance in the face of adversity. Ishita Mathur reviews.

Review: T2 Trainspotting

While the sequel lacks the madcap energy of fleeting youth that the original 1996 film possessed, it trades it off for a more world-weary maturity. Dominic Kwaczynski reviews.

Review: A Series of Unfortunate Events (2016)

If you are interested in TV shows with happy endings, you would be better off reading some other review. In this show, not only is there no happy ending, there is no happy beginning and very few happy things in the middle. Hannah Adam reviews.
