A bereaved couple’s new foster son’s dreams – and nightmares – can come true. Atypical jumpscare horror which morphs into something a little more touchy-feely. Not for all tastes, but well-directed by the talented Flanagan.
A grieving mother is offered a way to say a final goodbye to her dead son. Straightforward jumpscare malarkey with a premise very similar to the superior Wake Wood. The film benefits from its interesting Mumbai setting, and some committed acting.
Competent sequel, with action a plenty. Suffers from over-contrived story, a tendency to overplay it’s hand and become way too pantomime as well as being 30 mins too long. Not as good or funny as first one.
A live-action/mocap/CG version of the Disney animation based on the Kipling stories. And pretty good it is too, with a stunning central performance and plenty of visual wonderment if you don’t mind a little uncanny valley in your family-friendly entertainment.
Far better than the disappointing second film, this takes the characters back to the race tracks of America. Shamelessly riffing off Rocky 3, 4 and 5, this is a great piece of family entertainment. Not Pixar’s best, but still a cut above similar fare.
Still defying all expectation, this evolution of the story is a far more direct affair, with a simple revenge plot driving the action forward. Superlative characters, beautifully shot; this series is an example to all how to handle a major franchise.
Somewhat confusing big screen adaptation that clearly suffers from trying to cram seven books into two hours of screen time. What’s here is decent enough, but when it shares more in common with The Last Action Hero, you wonder what all the fuss was about.
