3/5 74% The Source Family (2013) "Topical and worthwhile, it deserves to find an audience - even if you might struggle to catch it in Saudi Arabia. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted May 14, 2012
4/5 65% All In Good Time "While Ritchie and Karan offer up charming performances, their characters could use more depth: the romantic complications feel sudden without much psychological insight. " ‐ Guardian
Posted May 10, 2012
2/5 20% The Lucky One (2012) "Even taken as simple schmaltz, 'The Lucky One' lacks the romantic impact of the adaptation of Sparks's 'The Notebook' or even the Channing Tatum-starrer 'Dear John'. " ‐ Time Out
Posted May 1, 2012
1/5 0% Elfie Hopkins "It's a bit of a mess that doesn't serve its decent cast well. Avoid like a stinky kipper. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 15, 2012
3/5 67% Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (2012) "As awkward as McGregor's geeky hero and almost as confused as the titular plan, Salmon Fishing is still very likable if you're prepared to take the bait. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 15, 2012
3/5 63% Delicacy (2012) "The storytelling is a little muddled but Tautou brings all her elfine charm to bear. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 10, 2012
3/5 42% StreetDance 2 (2014) "Boutella shows promise beyond her day job as one of Madonna's dancers but otherwise speaking parts are sensibly limited to those who can act. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Mar 27, 2012
3/5 85% 21 Jump Street (2012) "Thanks to charming leads and a smattering of laughs, this is still worth a punt for fans of light buddy comedies. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Mar 13, 2012
2/5 31% A Man's Story (2012) "Fashion fans may find 'A Man's Story' interesting, but even they may be disappointed by the lack of insight into the man and his process. " ‐ Time Out

3/5 No Score Yet Dattak (2007) Time Out
Posted Feb 23, 2012
3/5 56% The Adopted (Les adoptés) "'The Adopted' serves as a calling card for Laurent, who displays a flair for character-based humour as well as strong visual direction. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 21, 2012
4/5 78% The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2012) "Charming, delightful and highly amusing - just what you'd expect from the star studded cast of veterans. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 20, 2012
3/5 29% The Vow (2012) "Both stars make decent use of the script's gently humorous potential. As a superficial look at a weird situation, it's reasonably diverting. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 7, 2012
2/5 42% Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (2012) "It's a harmless family film with an old-fashioned spirit of adventure, but the writing doesn't live up to the promise of the premise. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 2, 2012
3/5 50% Best Laid Plans (2012) "This might be uneven, but it's well filmed, with a clutch of affecting scenes - a more thoughtful affair than your average Brit fight flick. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 2, 2012
3/5 31% Man on a Ledge (2012) "This embraces its own lunacy readily enough, never aiming for anything more than the disposable thrills it delivers thick and fast. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jan 31, 2012
3/5 69% X: Night of Vengeance (2011) "Raw, convincing Aussie thriller set on the meaner streets of Sydney. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 18, 2012

3/5 24% Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011) "As a stand-alone movie it's a mixed bag. But it progresses the story of beloved characters with a reverence for the source material that will doubtlessly please Twi-hards, ushering in a finale that promises to be darker still. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Nov 17, 2011
2/5 9% Bratz: The Movie (2007) "It's derivative stuff, and played very straight despite its comical aspirations: this is Mean Girls without the irony. " ‐ Time Out

Posted Nov 16, 2011
2/5 0% How To Stop Being A Loser "It's not the worst British comedy, but if it were a TV pilot - which it feels like - there'd be little chance of this winning a full series. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Nov 15, 2011
2/5 21% Snow Flower And The Secret Fan (2011) "Not even the second best Hugh Jackman cameo of the year can save it from being little more than a period curio. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Nov 1, 2011
3/5 50% Sket (2012) "Despite some confusing narrative turns, writer-director Nirpal Bhogal's thriller is an impactful and authentic look at gang culture on London's meaner streets. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 27, 2011
3/5 87% Miss Bala (2012) "That innocuous title disguises a Mexican thriller with genuine bite, though the hokey ending doesn't quite live up to the edgy plotting and Sigman's classy turn as a tough heroine in an impossible situation. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 23, 2011
3/5 76% The Help (2011) "Sure, it's corny, but it mostly works. " ‐ Empire Magazine

Posted Oct 18, 2011
3/5 70% Footloose (2011) "The plot may be straightforward but it's refreshing to see a modern dance film that tackles religion, convention and local law alongside the requisite forbidden romance. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Oct 11, 2011
4/5 49% Sleeping Beauty (2011) "This will divide audiences as much as The Tree Of Life, but it's a brave and beautiful calling card for both filmmaker and star. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 9, 2011
2/5 23% What's Your Number? (2011) "A throwaway giggle rather than a life-affirming mirror for that swelling box-office target: the single woman. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Sep 27, 2011
4/5 77% The Debt (2011) "'The Debt' tackles themes of humanity, revenge and truth so successfully it's hard not to find it powerful - even if it's not the Oscar bait it might have hoped to be. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Sep 27, 2011
3/5 83% Warrior (2011) "This doesn't pack a punch like 'The Fighter' - but it's still a must for grapple fans. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Sep 21, 2011
3/5 30% Turnout "Plenty of 'he's-not-is-he?' observational details, nice performances and some genuinely funny moments make up for the patchy plotting. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 12, 2011
3/5 97% Tomboy (2011) "A tender, sensitive French drama rich in hazy atmosphere. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 12, 2011
3/5 70% Friends With Benefits (2011) "This coasts along just fine thanks to charm and comical interludes, but it fails to deliver the sassy story it promises. Fine for a romantic comedy, but an inferior follow up to director Gluck's edgier Easy A. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 5, 2011
3/5 18% The Art of Getting By (2011) "A likeable debut from director Gavin Wiesen that will appeal to teens. And, my, hasn't that Freddie Highmore grown up. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 31, 2011
2/5 44% Cowboys & Aliens (2011) "What started as 'True Grit'-meets-'War of the Worlds' ends up closer to - whisper it - 'Wild Wild West'. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Aug 17, 2011
4/5 100% Poetry (2011) "Well-crafted and compelling, if a little inaccessible to western audiences... " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jul 24, 2011
3/5 84% Beginners (2011) "With good performances and characters, Beginners is an enjoyable, amusing and occasionally poignant watch. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jul 18, 2011
3/5 78% Trust (2011) "A strong, compelling and disturbing story that struggles to reach a decent ending. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jul 4, 2011
2/5 19% Love's Kitchen (2011) "Ham, corn and cheese are the only things this kitchen is serving up - even before Gordon Ramsay's awful cameo. " ‐ Empire Magazine
