Dumbo – 3/5 stars
I had really high hopes for this film, great cast, a great director (Tim Burton) sadly a disappointing result. Not a terrible film but sadly if you’re over 6 years old, you will get a little bit bored by it.
Us – 4/5 stars
I am not a massive fan of the horror genre, however I loved this film. Outstanding performances from all of the cast, especially Lupita Nyongo as the lead character. Just the right amount of ‘jump out of your seat’ moments. Intense plot line throughout the whole film with a few laughs thrown in. My only criticism is that I thought it was a little too long at 2 hours.
Shazam! – 4/5 stars
The promotional material for Shazam! promised Superman meets Big – and it did not disappoint. Zachary Levi is pitch perfect casting as Shazam. The movie has a great pace, excellent humour and just the right amount of action. It didn’t have the greatest of villains, however this didn’t impact the movie as Shazam was the central purpose the whole way through.
At Eternity’s Gate
Sadly this film is showing in selected cinemas so I have not managed to see it yet (released March 29). Great reception from other film critics, however you are likely to be watching this film on the small screen.
