  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail: Lo, let us hie to Camelot, for research!

  • Dune 2: If ever there was a movie made for the big screen, this is a fine example of one.

  • Spirited Away: Cheryl is possibly the last person in the world to watch this famous movie.

  • The Marvels: Captain Marvel is back, and this time she has help. Well, one pissed off adopted niece, and one obsessive fangirl (plus her very protective family).

  • Babylon 5: The Road Home: Babylon 5 is back, with a new animated movie. Watch it, or Commander Ivanova will want to know why.

  • Barbie: The movie event of the year comes in bright PINK!

  • Guardians of the Galaxy – Volume 3: Is the Marvel Cinematic Universe dying? Cheryl doesn't think so.

  • Black Adam: The latest DC movie offering tries to do something interesting, but gets very confused.

  • Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves: The Dungeons & Dragons franchise gets a spin-off movie. Is it a pub full of happy hobbits, or just a big, sad gelatinous cube?

  • Across the Spider-Verse: The animated Spider-Man movie gets a sequel, and an awful lot more Spider-People. Cheryl is entranced, and not just by the hints the Gwen Stacy is trans.

  • Eternals: Is Marvel's latest super team as dull as everyone is making out?

  • The Green Knight: How did Cheryl spend the Solstice? Watching The Green Knight, of course.

  • Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings: A lot has changed at Marvel since the Kung Fu craze of the 1970s. Shang-Chi is a better character for it.
