FOCUS ★★

Will Smith and Margot Robbie share plenty of chemistry as a conman and his protégé in this lame caper, but it’s the audience that will feel most cheated.


IT FOLLOWS ★★★★

A sexually transmitted haunting is the premise of this fantastic teen horror, with an outstanding performance from Maika Monroe as a victim of the curse.


THE BOY NEXT DOOR ★★

Jennifer Lopez’s attempts to play the cougar backfire spectacularly, and so does this OTT thriller.
