    Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

    ★★★★★

    "What is reality?"

    Knives Out is one of my very favourtie films. There's a reason why it is the one movie poster on my wall. But could Rian Johnson do it all over again with another Benoit Blanc mystery, creating a twisty mystery that is also hugely fun? The answer, to my delight, is yes.

    Tech billionaire Miles Bron (Edward Norton) invites his friend to his Greek island for a murder mystery weekend. Guests include his ex-partner Andi Brand (Janelle…

    The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special

    ★★★★★

    "We got Quill the worst present ever- a disgusting actor"

    This is perhaps the MCU's most ridiculous project so far and yet it's really enjoyable.

    The Guardians, now hanging out at Knowhere, hear how Quill (Chris Pratt) had Christmas ruined as a child. Mantis (Pom Klementieff) and Drax (Dave Bautista) head to Earth to bring back Quill's hero Kevin Bacon (playing himself) as a present.

    On the one hand, this is really silly. Drax and Mantis having hi-jinks on Earth…

    We Are Not Alone

    ★★★½

    This comedy from two of the creators of the BBC's excellent Ghosts sitcom (Laurence Rickard and Ben Willbond) starts with an interesting idea- what happens once the aliens have invaded and have to rule the planet?

    Stewart (Declan Baxter) has no real ambition in life, other than to winner the heart of pub landlord Elodie (Georgia May Foote). When alien race the Gu'un's invade he inadvertently finds himself as the official human liaison. As well as working for Trator (Vicki…

    Good Night Oppy

    ★★★★

    "Good night, Opportunity. Well done."

    I did not expect to be holding back tears on a documentary about a robot.

    Good Night Oppy tells the story of the Spirit and Opportunity Mars Rovers and the people at NASA who worked on them. The documentary tells the full story from pitching the idea to building the rovers to launching them to Mars, the challenges they faced on the Red Planet and their eventual demises.

    This isn't really a science documentary, though…

    Parasite

    ★★★★★

    Donald Trump has come out and said that Parasite should not have won Best Picture because it's South Korean. If ever there was a film Trump would dislike it's this one. I'm pretty sure he's never watched it due to the "one inch barrier of subtitles" that requires a basic literacy level to get through.

    Parasite is a film all about the class system. We open with the Kim family living in a small basement apartment as they steal Wi-Fi…

    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★★½

    "I cherish peace with all my heart. I don't care how many men, women and children I need to kill to get it."

    James Gunn knows how to make absurd comic book characters work on screen. We saw it with Guardians of the Galaxy where he managed to make Rocket Racoon a genuinely likeable character. When DC approached him to make a film for them they were thinking of Superman but Gunn opted for Suicide Squad and it's clear why-…
