FilmSpace: Mug; Mortal Engines; Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle
Film critic Calum Cooper looks back at the week’s additional releases, including the Berlin Film Festival Jury Grand Prix winner Mug, a fantasy adaptation produced and co-written by Peter Jackson, and Andy Serkis’ take on The Jungle Book.
Mug – ★★★★☆
FilmSpace: Ralph Breaks the Internet; Creed II; Disobedience
Film critic Calum Cooper looks back at some of the week’s additional releases. A case of sequel-itis this week with Ralph Breaks the Internet and Creed II, as well as hard hitting themes explored in Disobedience.
Ralph Breaks the Internet – ★★★☆☆
FilmSpace: Shoplifters; Robin Hood; The Girl in the Spider's Web
Film critic Calum Cooper looks back on some of the past week’s new releases. The Palme d’Or winning Shoplifters left him dazzled, the new Robin Hood was permanently scarring, while the latest Lisbeth Salander movie proved disappointing.
Shoplifters – ★★★★☆
FilmSpace: Overlord; The Princess Switch
Film critic Calum Cooper looks back at some of the week’s additional releases. This week he looks at the scattershot, but enjoyably mindless war horror Overlord, alongside Vanessa Hudgen’s newest, a Netflix movie that sees her swapping places with her royal doppelgänger.
Overlord – ★★★☆☆
FilmSpace: The Nutcracker and the Four Realms; Johnny English Strikes Again; Smallfoot
Film critic Calum Cooper looks back at the week’s additional releases, including the stunning yet soulless sequel to The Nutcracker, Johnny English beating a dead horse with his third movie, and a surprisingly musing family film.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms – ★★☆☆☆
FilmSpace: Bohemian Rhapsody; First Man; Halloween
Film Critic Calum Cooper looks back at this week’s additional releases. Firstly, a Queen biopic that lacks the flamboyancy of its lead character, Damien Chazelle’s newest film on Neil Armstrong’s moon landing, and, just in time for the holiday of the same name, the follow up to John Carpenter’s 1978 classic Halloween.
Bohemian Rhapsody – ★★☆☆☆
FilmSpace at London International Film Festival: Wild Rose; Suspiria; Outlaw King; Peterloo
Film Critic Calum Cooper is in London for the 62nd London Film Festival. Continuing his series of reviews are his thoughts on new Glaswegian film Wild Rose, as well as Luca Guadagino’s remake of Suspiria, the new Netflix film based on Robert the Bruce, and Mike Leigh’s latest on the Peterloo Massacre.
Wild Rose – ★★★★☆
