    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★

    53/100

    Top Gun: Maverick is a colossal achievement in cinema that feels weirdly old school not just in the way it's made but also in the way it feels; with the ideal blend of humour, heart, emotion, music, and flashbacks to its history, it's the ultimate summer blockbuster cocktail, for now, and for any year. It's a bombastic, exciting thrill experience, brought to life by Joseph Kosinski, that's honestly greater than anything a rollercoaster could throw at you. When it…

    ★★½

    49/100

    The quality of the itself is outstanding. Spielberg purposely used black and white, with a few key highlights in color, and the clarity of the picture is spectacular. He chooses to…

    ★★★

    55/100

    Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan’s war film, retells one of the iconic legends of the Second World War. From May 27 until June 4, 1940, more than 338,000 Allied troops who'd been encircled by the Nazis at Dunkirk, France, were evacuated by sea.

    Out of the gates we are given three plot lines in this film. The first is that of a random soldier chased out to the beach and his attempts to get across the channel. The second is that of…
