Nocturnal Animals (2016)

Today marks the first in the two part series of Amy Adams appreciation fortnight. The much anticipated Arrival, well, arrives in theatres at the weekend, but before the actress dons her sci-fi hat, audiences first get to see her in Tom Ford’s second directorial effort Nocturnal Animals, seven years after his debut success A Single Man.

The Light Between Oceans (2016)

You know it’s October/November when you find yourself entering the movie theatre to watch a fourth big screen novel adaptation in a row.

Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children (2016)

It’s no secret that Tim Burton and I have been beefin’ for a long, long time. I find it one of the most frustrating occurrences in modern cinema that the man who filled my early years with such innovative wonders as Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Beetlejuice has become so recently creatively bankrupt with…

Free State Of Jones (2016)

In cinema’s post-Dallas Buyer’s Club world, it seems as though a single year cannot pass without Matthew McConaughey making a return to the big screen to assure us that, in spite of all that has come before, he has remained on the straight and narrow and not fallen back to the dark side of terrible…
