2/5 35% Dad's Army (2016) "While it ticks some nostalgia boxes, Dad's Army simply feels like a missed opportunity. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Feb 4, 2016
1/5 9% Dirty Grandpa (2016) "Dirty Grandpa is a comedy that will leave you open-mouthed. Unfortunately, the sound being produced by your lungs isn't laughter but a silent scream at what is unfolding before you. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 28, 2016
3/5 43% The 33 (2015) "What it does have is a gripping made-for-the-movies combination of horror and heart as the families of the men gather at the surface, first in protest at the lack of help, then in celebration as the government gets behind the miners' plight. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 28, 2016
5/5 96% Spotlight (2015) "One of the best films you will see this - or any - year, Spotlight grips like a vice from start to finish. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 28, 2016
3/5 17% The 5th Wave (2016) "Moretz is an enjoyably feisty heroine and there is all the fun you might expect in playing "guess the alien". " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 21, 2016
3/5 33% Our Brand is Crisis (2015) "Billed as a comedy drama, Our Brand Is Crisis sits on the fence of both genres, without really committing to either. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 21, 2016
5/5 88% The Big Short (2015) "Although it's easy to get caught up with these men and their mission, their success still means millions will end up homeless. That's the true success of The Big Short - it's such a tremendously enjoyable ride but leaves you reeling in frustration. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 21, 2016
4/5 79% Ip Man 3 (2016) "Held together by Yen ... " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 14, 2016
4/5 96% Room (2015) "The excellent Larson explores the psychology of a kidnap victim. Room deserves its place on the Oscar shortlist. " ‐ Sun Online

2/5 13% Breakdown "This runs out of firepower long before the credits. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 14, 2016
4/5 94% Creed (2015) "Stallone impresses most of all. Maybe it is time to hang up his Expendables gun and leave the elderly action-man stuff behind. " ‐ Sun Online

4/5 96% What We Do In The Shadows (2015) "This mix of vampire mythology and the mundane makes for a charming film. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 2, 2016
3/5 80% McFarland USA (2015) "McFarland still warms the cockles, Costner's flawed character proves watchable and everyone, particularly the younger actors gives solid performances. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 2, 2016
2/5 32% Solace (2016) "A tedious and tired serial killer story. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 2, 2016
4/5 60% Life (2015) "For Dean aficionados, this is a wonderful way to get the backstory on some of the most iconic images we have of the star. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 2, 2016
4/5 67% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) "Slick, sexy and stylish... U.N.C.L.E. is A-O.K. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 2, 2016
2/5 56% Paper Towns (2015) "With the overarching story so unengaging, coupled with Margot's fondness for making worldly statements no 18-year-old can say without sounding pretentious, this turns out to be better on paper. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 2, 2016
3/5 17% Pixels (2015) "There is the occasional laugh-out-loud gag, the action is well done and there's certain nostalgia to watching Pac-Man tear up New York. But playing Space Invaders offers more surprises. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 2, 2016
4/5 82% Mistress America (2015) "Perhaps the end isn't as fun as the journey but with so many hilarious lines and top-flight performances, fans of Baumbach's offbeat comedies will find plenty to enjoy here. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 2, 2016
4/5 85% John Wick (2014) "[A] blisteringly fun action romp. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 2, 2016
3/5 54% Woman in Gold (2015) "Mirren and Reynolds make for an entertaining central pairing. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 2, 2016
2/5 14% Hot Tub Time Machine 2 (2015) "There are laughs here, some pretty big, but it's such a slog that this hot tub will leave you cold. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 2, 2016
3/5 47% Home (2015) "While adults will be unmoved by this loud, fast-paced movie -- the cinematic equivalent of mainlining liquid Haribo -- younger viewers will lap up the kaleidoscopic aliens and sentimental life lessons. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 2, 2016
2/5 29% Insurgent (2015) "Kate Winslet remains a welcome distraction as matriarchal Jeanine and Miles Teller proves better than the material but, in terms of both visuals and story, this is tired and derivative. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 2, 2016
3/5 17% The Gunman (2015) "[An]] entertaining -- if morally questionable -- thriller. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 2, 2016
3/5 93% Carol (2015) "Worth watching for the electrifying chemistry of its love-struck leads alone. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 2, 2016
4/5 75% Black Mass (2015) "Here Depp is controlled, measured and deeply unsettling. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 2, 2016
4/5 77% The Good Dinosaur (2015) "While not up there with Toy Story 3 and The Incredibles as Pixar's best, this is still a warm and wonderfully told tale. Arlo may be The Good Dinosaur but this is a great movie. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 2, 2016
4/5 91% Bridge of Spies (2015) "With Hanks on superb form, Spielberg delivering a visually stunning and surprisingly feel-good thriller, Bridge of Spies absolutely satisfies. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 2, 2016
3/5 71% Jurassic World (2015) "This was never going be as good as Spielberg's masterpiece and, surprise, surprise, it isn't. It's simply a solid summer blockbuster and the second best of the series. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 1, 2016
3/5 83% Lagerfeuer (West) (2014) "Strong performances and a foreboding atmosphere ramp up the paranoia. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 1, 2016
4/5 96% The Look of Silence (2015) "Powerful, provocative and deeply affecting. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 1, 2016
2/5 63% Sleeping with Other People (2015) "Of course we all know how it's going to end and the film's crushing predictability could be ignored if it raised more laughs -- but this is all over the place. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 1, 2016
3/5 60% Joy (2015) "Lawrence delivers a powerhouse performance in this solid if occasionally meandering drama. But when you compare it to the likes of Silver Linings and Hustle,it is only a minor success. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 1, 2016
3/5 70% The Danish Girl (2015) "Great performances aside -- and Redmayne really is stunning as Lili, without ever resorting to caricature -- The Danish Girl often feels too simplistic. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 1, 2016
4/5 86% Far From the Madding Crowd (2015) "The cast are flawless. Mulligan gives a career-best performance, while Sheen manages to be both hilarious and tragic as his persistent advances are rebuffed. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 1, 2016
2/5 18% Monsters: Dark Continent (2015) "Basically it's a war movie with four or five shots of giant monsters. The film would be exactly the same without them. And the characters are underwritten and unmemorable. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 1, 2016
3/5 62% Unfriended (2015) "At a time when some people feel they can get away with saying horrible things online, it's a clever idea to have something out there dishing out payback. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 1, 2016
2/5 9% Fantastic Four (2015) "Despite the best efforts of its talented cast, this joins Terminator Genisys as this summer's big disappointments. Far from fantastic. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 1, 2016
4/5 93% The Gift (2015) "The taut script and slow-build ratchet the tension before a surprisingly nasty finale, with some perfect jump-out-of-your-seat shocks. All in all, a real gift. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 1, 2016
2/5 35% Max (2015) "Despite some great performances from both the young Wiggins, Thomas Hayden Church and the impressive and loveable Max, if you're looking for anything other than a minor distraction you're barking up the wrong tree. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 1, 2016
3/5 41% We Are Your Friends (2015) "Efron is utterly convincing as Cole, a guy dreaming of creating a dance track that will turn him into the next big thing. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 1, 2016
3/5 88% Straight Outta Compton (2015) "The first hour flies by in a haze of frenetic energy and exciting performances from all the main players. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Jan 1, 2016
2/5 49% Boychoir (2015) "While occasionally enjoyable this hits too many bum notes. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Dec 31, 2015
4/5 99% Song Of The Sea (2014) "A magnificent journey into Irish folklore, beautifully illustrated and full of wonder. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Dec 31, 2015
4/5 46% Ted 2 (2015) "This will not be for everyone -- but if you loved the foul-mouthed bear first time round, he just got even filthier. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Dec 31, 2015
3/5 86% Top Five (2014) "As a stand-up, Rock has always pushed boundaries so it's surprising to find this is such a sweet movie which could have really done with more comedic bite. There are plenty of chuckles, but you'll struggle to find a Top Five belly laugh here. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Dec 30, 2015
3/5 54% The Age of Adaline (2015) "It's a fascinating Benjamin Button-like premise and Lively shines in the lead, capturing the wisdom and weariness of someone over a century old. But it fails to explore what Adaline has done with her immortal life or the events of the 20th century. " ‐ Sun Online
Posted Dec 30, 2015
3/5 62% MI-5 (Spooks: The Greater Good) (2015) "It's difficult to call it great, more like Spooks: The Quite Good. " ‐ Sun Online
