4/5 93% Incredibles 2 (2018) It doesn't try to be funny, it just effortless is. It's a heartfelt joy with a commendable stab at social commentary. A roller coaster of a ride this is one sequel and superhero movie that beats the enemy with graceful joy.‐ Flavourmag

2/5 37% Johnny English Strikes Again (2018) Johnny English stumbles into the digital age with a stale take on the spy spoof that really should know it's time to go to pasture. It sticks to its formula like glue and never wavers in its tired silliness.‐ Flavourmag

3/5 81% Overlord (2018) B-Movie quality it is, which undoubtedly suits its tone. But it does beg the question, is it truly time to bury the Zombie genre?‐ Flavourmag
