'The Lost City of Z' is lush, majestic and finely acted, but it lacks a rousing, viscerally exciting sense of propulsive adventure.

Wild Oats – Review

The movie equivalent of that doddering grandaunt who goes off on rambling tangents, but who’s so sweet you don’t have the heart to tell her to stop.
Good but not great, 'Live by Night' should still manage to allay the anxious fears of fanboys anticipating a disastrous 'The Batman'.
Fans of Park Chan-Wook’s Vengeance film trilogy will be pleased that the auteur has not lost his touch. If you liked Gone Girl, you'll be thrilled to discover another film masterpiece that is just as sick and twisted as it is brilliant and complex.
Like the high-tech suit that Tony Stark creates for Peter Parker, this Spider-Man reboot is spiffy but sufficiently familiar. Homecoming is tonally assured and energetic, with Holland making for an eminently personable Spidey.
This new chapter in the Wizarding World caters to devotees and newcomers alike, even if the setting is more interesting than the story itself.
It’s as cheesy and outlandish as ever: Fast & Furious 8 sticks to what works for the franchise and even if it doesn’t break ground the same way that submarine did, it’s enjoyable.
While Jason Bourne is a serviceable spy thriller, it’s tackling of timely themes feels like a desperate bid to prove the franchise’s relevance and staying power, which is flagging here.
Assassins are deft and swift; this movie is clumsy and plodding. The sequences set in the thick of the Spanish Inquisition are the closest Assassin’s Creed gets to actually being entertaining.
Sure, the leading men have chemistry, but unremarkable action sequences and jokes that are more cringe-inducing than genuinely funny ensure this won’t be front and centre in most moviegoers’ memories after they leave the theatre.
Even with its funny cast, 'Masterminds' is middling rather than brilliant, passing up incisive social commentary for lazy humour. We will admit to laughing more than a few times, though.
Sometimes loveable and sometimes insufferable, the uneven "Carrie Pilby" is a lot like its idiosyncratic title character.
