Reggie teams up with two fellow travellers to find Mike. Decent series continuation with some neat asides about middle America. For fans only by this stage, but a few striking moments for newbies as well.
Reggie and Mike stalk The Tall Man across America. Straightforward sequel to the 1979 original, retaining a little of the first movie’s dream logic, but focusing more on road movie thrills and on upgraded makeup effects set-pieces.
When a standing stone is disturbed, an Irish village is terrorised by an ancient creature. Patchy horror with some interesting folk-horror moments and one impressive stunt, though let down by clunky execution and an especially poor monster.
Lang, Hank Pym and Lana re-team, this time to find Pym’s wife, long thought lost in the quantum realm. Superior Marvel adventure, all the better for its modest scale, humour, and invention in blending 3D, action and the conceit of the size-changing tech.
Ten years after the events of Pacific Rim, the Jaeger programme is under threat. Teen-oriented sequel which takes the Independence Day: Resurgence route: good-looking international cast and locations, a focus on China as a sales market, a lighter tone, a sense of disposability.
A zoologist and a renegade scientist team up to stop genetically-enhanced animals rampaging. Perfunctory and slightly po-faced monster mayhem, with only Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s man in black entering properly into the tongue-in-cheek fray.
A suicidal man is shown there’s hope by an angel-in-training. Peerless Christmas fantasy riffing on A Christmas Carol. Just about note-perfect throughout.
