1/5 67% Hercules (2014) " Brett Ratner's take on Zeus' most ripped offspring is a bumbling, dizzy-headed chore." — Little White Lies
Posted Jul 23, 2014
3/5 76% Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon (2014) " You'll be looking him up as soon as it ends. The feeling this is all some huge elaborate hoax only adds spice!" — Little White Lies
Posted Jul 17, 2014
2/5 54% Jersey Boys (2014) " This is an age-old rise-and-fall story that we've all seen a hundred times before, so maybe embalming it in molasses is not the way to go." — Little White Lies
Posted Jun 19, 2014
2/5 67% I Declare War (2013) " Tweenie woodland warmongering is at the centre of this tonally haywire fantasy satire." — Little White Lies
Posted Jun 5, 2014
2/5 63% For No Good Reason (2014) " A mewling yet occasionally deafening - and seemingly arbitrary - soundtrack overflowing with upstart folk-rock nobodies adds little to the experience." — Little White Lies
Posted May 29, 2014
5/5 74% Godzilla (2014) " Gareth Edwards' Godzilla is one of the great blockbusters of modern times. Believe." — Little White Lies
Posted May 14, 2014
3/5 100% Next Goal Wins (2014) " Slightly muted closing stretch lets the air out of the ball ever so slightly, but by then it's already in the top corner." — Little White Lies
Posted May 8, 2014
4/5 79% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) " Kermit and co return for a delectable, gag-laden Euro pudding that might just be a Muppet masterpiece." — Little White Lies
Posted Mar 27, 2014
2/5 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) " Chris Evans' welcome return to the superhero fold can't save this sequel from feeling like an awkward franchise mid-point." — Little White Lies
Posted Mar 26, 2014
2/5 —— Peter Gabriel: Back To Front (2014) " A pleasant rock memento, but hardly a concert-film classic." — Little White Lies
Posted Mar 20, 2014
1/5 33% Back to the Garden " Shallow insights in the long grass make for a dozy yet irritating afternoon in the Kent countryside." — Little White Lies
Posted Mar 13, 2014
5/5 99% The Godfather, Part II (1974) " Either taken alone or together with the original, The Godfather Part II is an astounding work." — Little White Lies
Posted Feb 20, 2014
1/5 38% 8 Minutes Idle " Director Mark Simon Hewis has a good eye, but his ear for material is way off." — Little White Lies
Posted Feb 13, 2014
3/5 70% Love Is In The Air (2014) " A delectable piece of French Valentine's Day fluff with charming turns from Ludivine Sagnier and Nicolas Bedos." — Little White Lies
Posted Feb 13, 2014
2/5 67% Fonzy (2014) " Yet another local spin on Ken Scott's (not very good to start with) 2011 comic sperm doner parable." — Little White Lies
Posted Jan 23, 2014
2/5 47% Last Vegas (2013) " A lost weekend that's unlikely to linger long in the memory." — Little White Lies
Posted Jan 2, 2014
3/5 75% Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) " It mostly works, even if it starts getting a bit flat during the second act." — Little White Lies
Posted Dec 18, 2013
3/5 74% The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug (2013) " One suspects that if it was any other name but Jackson's above the title, we would be baying for the head of which ever journeyman hack had force-fed us this unnecessary volley of (upper-)second division fantasy clichés." — Little White Lies
Posted Dec 12, 2013
2/5 35% The Counselor (2013) " An inert, dispiriting, detached, disjointed, counterfeit and clumsy film ..." — Little White Lies
Posted Nov 14, 2013
3/5 85% Seduced And Abandoned " Jolly good fun, even if it doesn't exactly manage to fulfil its wonky remit." — Little White Lies
Posted Nov 7, 2013
4/5 94% Milius " There's fire and firepower a-plenty in this elegiac profile of '70s moviemaking stalwart, John Milius." — Little White Lies
Posted Oct 31, 2013
2/5 60% Ender's Game (2013) " Disappointing YA sci-fi in which the future of humanity is placed in the hands of a snot-nosed kid and his computer games." — Little White Lies
Posted Oct 24, 2013
3/5 65% Thor: The Dark World (2013) " Familiarity trumps originality in this fun and very funny comic book sequel with Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston." — Little White Lies
Posted Oct 24, 2013
2/5 67% Lebanese Rocket Society " This rickety doc on the little-known Lebanese space program lacks thrust and direction." — Little White Lies
Posted Oct 17, 2013
2/5 —— Viva! Hysteria (2013) " A slick and soulless trawl through the hits as Def Leppard pitch their stall at a Vegas burger joint." — Little White Lies
Posted Sep 19, 2013
5/5 84% Upstream Color (2013) " Baffling, intoxicating, elegant, Shane Carruth's long-overdue follow-up to Primer is among the year's best." — Little White Lies
Posted Aug 29, 2013
2/5 64% 2 Guns (2013) " A fairly indistinct Tex-Mex time-filler that soon gets lost amid memories of cooler, dustier, sweatier tear-ups." — Little White Lies
Posted Aug 15, 2013
2/5 88% Alan Partridge (2014) " A slightly unsatisfying experience, and unlikely to match the re-watch value of Partridge's sublime TV excursions." — Little White Lies
Posted Aug 8, 2013
3/5 65% The Heat (2013) " The bland visuals and point-and-shoot directorial style mean that not much sticks in the mind, but 'The Heat II' would be an entirely welcome proposition." — Little White Lies
Posted Jul 31, 2013
4/5 74% The Wall (2013) " A lover and a fighter. This will remind you to hold everything dear." — Little White Lies
Posted Jul 4, 2013
1/5 34% The Internship (2013) " This will date rather badly, and possibly very quickly." — Little White Lies
Posted Jul 3, 2013
3/5 71% The King of Marvin Gardens (1972) " Introspective and self-conscious, it's a chill offering that struggles to find its own voice." — Little White Lies
Posted May 23, 2013
1/5 12% Red Dawn (2012) " With any luck this will be the spanner that finally jams up the works of Hollywood's dangerously overcranked '80s remake Wurlitzer." — Little White Lies
Posted Mar 14, 2013
1/5 41% Parker (2013) " Things get off to a flying start, but you just know your luck isn't going to hold." — Little White Lies
Posted Mar 7, 2013
1/5 66% Cloud Atlas (2012) " The perfect film for all those people whose one, undying wish in life is to swim with dolphins." — Little White Lies
Posted Feb 21, 2013
2/5 0% Run For Your Wife " A bizarre, ill-advised antediluvian folly. Like Jurassic Park." — Little White Lies
Posted Feb 14, 2013
1/5 14% A Good Day To Die Hard (2013) " Any remaining good faith in the franchise is now lost. Bruce's threatened sixth outing must surely be a bridge too far now." — Little White Lies
Posted Feb 14, 2013
5/5 98% Chinatown (1974) " See this film as many times as you can. Please." — Little White Lies
Posted Jan 3, 2013
4/5 64% The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) " The board is set, the pieces are moving and we're set up nicely for Jackson to tighten the noose with the love of second-act grit he displayed in The Two Towers." — Little White Lies
Posted Dec 11, 2012
3/5 91% Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan " You come away feeling Harryhausen perhaps deserves a more dynamic tribute, but it's a solid round-up of an extraordinary career." — Little White Lies
Posted Nov 8, 2012
25% Dinotasia (2012) " [A] well-meaning but listless compendium of unconnected prehistoric CG dino-vignettes that is as sure to bore children as it is to bemuse adults." — Little White Lies
Posted Oct 24, 2012
3/5 92% Skyfall (2012) " The new outlook, fresh cast and leaner chassis suggest that the franchise can really kick on from here, but it's hard not to feel that Skyfall itself is something of a missed opportunity. Better luck next time, James. Again." — Little White Lies
Posted Oct 16, 2012
3/5 93% Looper (2012) " The most resourceful, vivacious and savage science fiction movie of 2012." — Little White Lies
Posted Sep 27, 2012
2/5 64% The Campaign (2012) " All sounds a bit déjà vu. Didn't they make this in the late-'90s with Chris Farley and David Spade?" — Little White Lies
Posted Sep 27, 2012
1/5 38% Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie (2012) " A nauseating child's nightmare of Sisyphean despair." — Little White Lies
Posted Aug 23, 2012
1/5 55% The Bourne Legacy (2012) " This franchise is going to have to come up with something pretty special if it hopes to limp past this miserable entry." — Little White Lies
Posted Aug 10, 2012
1/5 31% The Dinosaur Project (2012) " The dinosaurs do the business, but they are let down badly by the human element." — Little White Lies
Posted Aug 9, 2012
2/5 88% London: The Modern Babylon (2013) " Ultimately there's not enough invention or verve to set this apart from a competent TV documentary." — Little White Lies
Posted Aug 2, 2012
1/5 68% God Bless America (2012) " Goldthwait shows a knack for pin-pointing the sulphurous hues within the kaleidoscopic rainbow of alienation and frustration, but has sadly failed to paint any of them black." — Little White Lies
Posted Jul 3, 2012
3/5 41% Rock of Ages (2012) " This is hardly what you'd call "great cinema", but, against the odds, it manages to be flashy and entertaining enough to justify its move to the big screen." — Little White Lies
