MovieViews Reviews:

Black Panther 2018 Dispenses with almost all of the Marvel tropes to deliver a tight and focussed origin story in a beautifully realised world. At last we have a superhero film dialled back down to 10. Gordon 8
Black Panther 2018 One of the most unique Marvel films to date with more realism than most, tremendous visuals and some great characters, but it is let down a little by a rather mediocre villain and the occasionally heavy-handed socio-political undertones. Mat 7
Mary Poppins Returns 2018 Does a remarkable job of feeling like an extension of the original. Blunt is tremendous when singing, but loses her way with the spoken parts. Gordon 7
RBG 2018 Notorious RBG isn't a rapper, she is an octogenarian Supreme Court Judge who has spent her life championing women's rights. This documentary tells her story and offers a fascinating insight into a remarkable woman. Gordon 8
The Ballad of Buster Scruggs 2018 As with most anthology films, some of the tales were hit and miss, but some were excellent (such as Buster and also the wagon train story). It was so wonderfully shot I am surprised it got no awards nominations for cinematography. Gordon 8
