MOST READ IN TV & SHOWBIZ BLUE MOVIE The lowdown on Bella Thorne's Pornhub award winning adult film Him and Her Review MALEFICENT IS EFFICIENT The new Maleficent film is entertaining and dazzling to look at ALL IN A NAME Here's what El Camino means in English Review JAMIE EAST AT THE MOVIES The Official Secrets cast is excellent - especially Ralph Fiennes MOB EPIC The Irishman may be mob's greatest ever hit after £112m and 12 years in the making This has no business being as good as it is. The humour is where we left it but still works, especially Eisenberg's neurotic whingeing and Deutch's painfully dim Madison. It feels like watching a lengthy compilation of well-scripted cut-scenes from zombie video games. But any movie with jokes about David Gray and Portishead is all right by me.
