White Boy Rick (2018, dir. Yann Demange)

The true story of Rick Wershe, drug dealer and teen FBI informant. Intriguing spin on the rise-and-fall story, focusing on the latter; good performances, and director Demange again shows he can handle drama, action, genre, character actors and period detail.

Contact (1997, dir. Robert Zemeckis)

A young astrophysicist decodes a signal from an alien intelligence. Good-hearted SF thriller from the Carl Sagan novel held together by fine performances and a positive outlook on space.

Sing (2016, dir. Garth Jennings)

A hapless theatre owner tries one last time to save his dreams. Its hoary premise aside, and some charmless character design notwithstanding, this is a chirpy jukebox musical hitting all the right feelgood notes, with a handful of quality jokes.

Another opinion? Here’s Lemonsquirtle’s.
