Mia Goth plays Maxine in the third film from Ti West's movie trilogy. MaXXXine (2024) Review - 'MaXXXine', the third film in Ti West's horror film series, is more interested in aesthetics than substance and leaves Mia Goth with not enough room to breathe. Review by Margaret Roarty.
A suited, young Sean Connery lusts over a seemingly disinterested Tippi Hedren who is wearing a beehive hairstyle. ‘Marnie’ at 60 – Review - Alfred Hitchcock's 'Marnie', starring Tippi Hedren and Sean Connery, features a stellar safe-stealing sequence but drags its heels. Review by Kieran Judge.

The Imaginary (2023) Review - From some of the creative minds behind 'Spirited Away' comes 2024 Netflix anime 'The Imaginary', a children's film for adults that is a little too boring to be a classic. Review by Martha Lane.
