Our reviews section is led by the blockbuster double bill of animated sequel The Lego Movie 2 and the long-gestating manga adaptation Alita: Battle Angel, which features Rosa Salazar‘s uncanny valley eyes a little too prominently. We also find time to review Kenneth Branagh‘s take on the final years of William Shakespeare in All is True and Barry Jenkins‘s unfairly snubbed Oscar contender If Beale Street Could Talk.
In the news section, we look at the fallout from the BAFTAs and discuss the controversial changes that have been mooted for the Oscars telecast. We also chat about the first trailers for bizarre Beatles musical Yesterday and Disney’s blockbuster animation Frozen 2. Finally, Patrick delivers a rather chaotic but very fun quiz based on connections.
