A return to form from the maestro who brought us The Sixth Sense? Or another dud to add the ever-growing backlog from that guy who gave us The Happening? In a nutshell, meh. BUT one thing can be agreed, James McAvoy was excellent. Three girls are kidnapped by a man diagnosed with 23 distinct personalities. They … Continue reading *NEW* SPLIT REVIEW *NEW*

A corporate risk-management consultant (Kate Mara) must decide whether or not to terminate an artificially created humanoid being (Anya Taylor-Joy). If Ridley Scott's son wasn't directing this, I wouldn't have been surprised to see this feature as a Late Night Premiere on the … Continue reading *NEW* MORGAN REVIEW *NEW*
