Goodfellas(2017)

"fascinating fact based story, amazing performances, and a truly pitch-perfect blend of style and substance all mix together to make Goodfellas the truest example of a cinematic masterpiece"

Martin Scorsese has given us many iconic film moments and characters that have established him as one of the greatest and most influential directors of all time.

Assassin’s Creed(2017)

"full of promise with its great cast, but ultimately it fails to deliver a cohesive plot, combined with characters with which we have little or no connection or empathy"

Boasting the impressive cast of Michael Fassbender, Jeremy Irons, Marion Cotillard, Charlotte Rampling and Brian

A Monster Calls(2017)

"successfully mixes fantasy with harsh reality without making the film too cumbersome or undermining such an important topic"

Inspired by the homonymous novel written by Patrick Ness, A Monster Calls is an incredibly heartbreaking movie that explores grief and how difficult it is to try and move on after a great loss. Through the eyes, mind and imagination of a young man trying to cope with the curveball that life has t...
