2024 Film Reviews

Madame Web (2024) Review - Sony Spider-Man spin-off 'Madame Web', directed by S.J. Clarkson and starring Dakota Johnson, is messy but consistently entertaining. Review by Sam Sewell-Peterson.
The Iron Claw (2023) Review - Writer-director Sean Durkin presents the tragic true story of the Von Erich professional wrestling family that is guaranteed to make you cry. Zac Efron stars. Review by Joseph Wade.
The Color Purple (2023) Review - Blitz Bazawule's Oscar-nominated 'The Color Purple' is a fresh take on a timeless story, a fitting adaptation of the stage musical. Fantasia Barrino stars. Review by Clotilde Chinnici.
Argylle (2024) Review - Matthew Vaughn's 'Argylle' (2024) is a vaguely entertaining exercise in over-self-indulgence that has some likeable qualities but is massively stretched out. Review by Kieran Judge.
The Zone of Interest (2023) Review - Are you sitting comfortably? Jonathan Glazer's Auschwitz film 'The Zone of Interest' (2023) is cold, horrifying cinema; a movie of the decade. Review by Joseph Wade.
American Fiction (2023) Review - Cord Jefferson's Oscars Best Picture nominee 'American Fiction' (2023) is an effective cultural and interpersonal story about identity, grief, love, and voice. Review by Emi Grant.
Destroy All Neighbors (2024) Review - 'Destroy All Neighbors' is an over-the-top horror-comedy B movie sendup that fails to deliver on its outrageous premise for its duration. Review by Kieran Judge.
Mean Girls (2024) Review - The 2024 'Mean Girls' musical is as brittle and fake as plastic, Tina Fey phoning in what could have been a meaningful remake. Review by Margaret Roarty.
The Beekeeper (2024) Review - David Ayer's action-thriller 'The Beekeeper' starring Jason Statham offers 100 minutes of badly shot action sequences and should buzz off. Review by Kieran Judge.
Foe (2023) Review - Despite glimmers of 'Marriage Story', 'Her' and 'Black Mirror', Garth Davis' 'Foe' (2023) starring Paul Mescal and Saoirse Ronan is severely lacking. Review by Rehana Nurmahi.
