What we know

The latest in the Transformers franchise is here – and critics are not being kind…

What the critics say

  • “This profitable franchise has not exactly enjoyed critical praise since its first installment in 2007, and Transformers: The Last Knight is unlikely to change that. But bad reviews are unlikely to dissuade the series’ fans, who enjoy seeing lots of things blown up…” – Hollywood Reporter
  • Transformers: The Last Knight is all kinds of awful. It’s also the worst of the series to date, which is saying something.” – Rolling Stone

What we know

This Irish film – which we previewed here – looks at what happens when a young couple travels to the UK for an abortion.

What the critics say

  • “There’s a new vogue in Irish cinema for realism without the associated grit and grubbiness. Stay tuned. Ryan is one to watch and then some.” - The Irish Times
  • “There’s a lot to admire in Tom Ryan’s charming and understated coming-of-age Irish feature, which despite addressing THE social debate of our times, won’t have too many maiden Aunts nervously thumbing the smelling salts.” –

What we know

Diane Keaton and Brendan Gleeson play an unexpected couple who have a meet cute on Hampstead Heath.

What the critics say

  • “That the film’s two lovable stars never quite click may come down to miscalculated star chemistry, but it’s hard to tell with a thin, too-cute screenplay… that plays to neither actor’s wryest or wonkiest strengths.” – Variety
  • “This is a hair-moultingly twee and staggeringly unconvincing romantic comedy inspired by the true story of Harry Hallowes, a homeless man was awarded the deed to a £2 million plot of land on the fringe of Hampstead Heath in 2007 after having squatted there for 20 years, largely unhindered.” – The Telegraph
