Black Panther’s real strength is in the world and characters. Wakanda is a sci-fi wonderland in the heart of Africa, but still steeped in a tribal community and traditions. It is a rad balance.

Scooby-Doo and the rest of the gang meet Batman in their latest team up, Scooby-Doo! & Batman: The Brave and the Bold, a straight-to-DVD adventure where the world’s greatest detective and these meddling kids take on a literal ghost from Batman’s past!

Rey is a hero because she has chosen to act like a hero, and that is more powerful than any Skywalker will ever be.

The nicest, most polite and charming movie of the year (and maybe ever?) is here! Paddington 2 sees Ben Whishaw return and teach us: so long as we are kind and polite, the world will be right!
