What we know

Chef Adam Jones is a talented chef who’s also a very, very bad boy. But he wants to get over his bad days and set up his own amazing restaurant. Will he get a second chance?

What the critics say

  • “The food porn is served (with an orgy of close-ups) but no high-end culinary tricks or detailed prep work is on view, except for a broad lesson in whipping together an omelette. But why nitpick when Burnt is so filling?”- Film Journal 
  • “In keeping with an early speech about the taken-for-granted value of fast food, it is a Whopper with a fancier bun, as opposed to a genuine Kobe hamburger.” - Forbes.com

They Will Have To Kill Us First

What we know

Music has been banned in Mali, but that won’t stop these incredible musicians making their sounds – even as the Islamic State tries to ensure that people will die for the cause.

What the critics say

  • “Social journalism of the highest order, They Will Have to Kill Us First is by turns horrific and front-loaded with sonic heroism.” - Austin Chronicle
  • “Although many of the stories told here are deeply harrowing and the film sometimes seems to be trying to bite off too much, at least there’s a happy ending of sorts.” - The Guardian

What we know

It’s Bond, James Bond, obviously.

What the critics say

  • “[Léa] Seydoux is the film’s secret weapon, bringing emotional heft to the pantomime elements, a winning mixture of strength and sultriness. - The Guardian
  • “Craig, meanwhile, captains Bond into a majestically craggy middle age, bringing a mature, clenched physicality to the chase and combat scenes, and even allowing himself the odd crumpled smirk after a deadpan quip.” – Telegraph
