Disney’s live action version of Mulan (2020) (12), was well shot. with good performances by Yifei Liu, Donnie Yen. Jet Li & Jason Scott Lee. great action & shunt work. definitely one of the better live action remakes, along with 2016’s Pete’s Dragon. decently solid indeed. 3½/5

Lost Transmissions (15) is one of best & brilliantly well acted films on mental health, I have ever seen in recent years. with a moving story & especially the performances from Simon Pegg as record producer Theo Ross & Juno Temple as shy singer Hannah. highly recommended. 4/5

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote (15) was a really good & enjoyable comedy adventure & a magnificent surprise directing return by Terry Gilliam. especially after the disappointing The Zero Theorem. beautifully filmed, with fabulous production design & great & fun performances. 4/5

Rag Doll (15) was a really good coming of age drama, about a young woman Nora trying to make it big as a mma fighter. brilliant performances from Shannon Murray. Dante Basco & Dot Marie Jones. it has good fight scenes & a end twist & its alot better then 2019’s ChokeHold. 3½/5

Seized (15) is a very good & gripping action film, with decent performances from Scott Adkins. Matthew Garbacz & Mario Van Peebles. brilliant action scenes. sold direction by Ninja: Shadow of a Tear director Isaac Florentine. similar to Taken, but its still great. 4/5

Legacy of Lies (15) had a strong story, with brilliantly well choreographed fight scenes & solid action. as Scott Adkins gives Jason Bourne a run for his money. not just with the action, but a emotional performance. Honor Kneafsey is great as his daughter as well. 3½/5

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (12) may have been ridiculous, over the top & had some unexplained plot holes. but it was still a very good. entertaining thrill ride, with decent performances & action & one of the best episode installments todate. also plenty of nostalgic nods too. 4/5

Dragonheart 5: Vengeance (15), may not have been good as the previous four films. but it was still a decently well made fantasy adventure. with a wonderful story & score. good action & the cast work well together. especially Helena Bonham Carter as the voice of the new dragon. 3/5

Fight Valley (15) was a surprisingly good female mma fighting film. with a really good & emotionally driven story, which dealt with mature themes pretty well. great performances from Erin O Brien. Cabrina Collesides & Miesha Tate & featuring good mma fighter cameos. a knockout. 4/5
