Posted Mar 11, 2011

Posted Feb 25, 2011
45% Drive Angry (2011) " Drive Angry 3D is a hoot, as long as you down-shift your brain into neutral and submit to the endless barrage of obscenities and gratuitous violence." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Feb 25, 2011

Posted Feb 18, 2011
64% Justin Bieber: Never Say Never (2011) " Concert footage attests to Bieber's ability to sing live including U Smile with backing from Boyz II Men, a duet of Overboard with Miley Cyrus, a remix of Somebody To Love featuring Usher and the infuriatingly catchy Baby." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Feb 18, 2011

Posted Jan 28, 2011
67% Conviction (2010) " Conviction is a remarkable true story that provides Swank with a meaty central role that wrings tears and fury in equal measure." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Jan 14, 2011
43% The Green Hornet (2011) " The Green Hornet puts the masked avenger at the centre of a flimsy, illogical plot and series of headache-inducing action sequences that strain the eyes in 3D." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Jan 14, 2011
94% The King's Speech (2010) " The King's Speech is an impeccably crafted chapter from recent British history that charts a remarkable and unlikely friendship between two men from opposite sides of the class divide." — Liverpool Echo

Posted Dec 24, 2010
49% The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010) " The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader is the most crudely constructed of the films, loosely stitching together the set pieces with comical altercations between Eustace and his courageous cousins." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Dec 10, 2010

Posted Dec 10, 2010
72% Megamind (2010) " The film appropriates elements from Shrek and The Incredibles and produces an entertaining hybrid that should have parents chuckling with glee." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Dec 3, 2010
71% Monsters (2010) " Monsters is a brilliantly executed thriller which puts multi-million dollar blockbusters to shame." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Dec 3, 2010
17% You Again (2010) " You Again may have some very experienced faces in the cast, but the end product still turns out to be disappointingly cliched and trite." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Nov 12, 2010
93% Another Year (2010) " Another beautifully observed portrait of modern life from Mike Leigh." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Nov 5, 2010

Posted Nov 5, 2010
85% Easy A (2010) " From its droll opening voiceover Will Gluck's film has us in the palm of its hand, rooting for an unconventional heroine who finds the silver lining in a huge, dark cloud over a pivotal year at high school." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Oct 22, 2010

Posted Oct 22, 2010
96% The Social Network (2010) " The Social Network is technically flawless, powered by Fincher's dazzling direction..." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Oct 15, 2010

Posted Oct 15, 2010
55% Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010) " It may be more than two decades since Michael Douglas won an Oscar as scheming Wall Street trader Gordon Gekko, but the character's mantra of "Greed is good" rings as loud as ever." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Oct 8, 2010
55% Mr. Nice (2011) " The screen version of Mr Nice makes his story seem rather pedestrian and the second half of the film becomes repetitive as Howard plays cat and mouse with the authorities." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Oct 8, 2010

Posted Sep 17, 2010

Posted Sep 17, 2010
51% The Switch (2010) " One of the main problems here is that there is zero chemistry between the two leads -- and we're not given any real reason to root for them to get together." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Sep 3, 2010
42% Dinner for Schmucks (2010) " Sadly, Dinner For Schmucks isn't a banquet of laughs and the plotting is based around a series of clumsy set pieces." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Sep 3, 2010
69% The Girl Who Played with Fire (Flickan som lekte med elden) (2010) " The Girl Who Played With Fire pulls no punches, and audiences who were on the edge of their seats in the first film will be just as enthralled by this one." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Aug 27, 2010
82% Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) " The bombardment lasts for almost two hours and by the end of the film, we feel almost as exhausted as the characters." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Aug 27, 2010

Posted Aug 3, 2010
47% The A-Team (2010) " Noisy, overblown, lacking substance, but still likeable." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Aug 3, 2010
86% Inception (2010) " Inception is elegantly realised. DiCaprio powerfully embodies a tortured soul while Gordon-Levitt has all the fun in the best action sequence." — Liverpool Echo
Posted Jul 16, 2010
99% Toy Story 3 (2010) " Toy Story 3 surpasses the 1995 original and its 1999 sequel for thrills, spills and laughs, delivering the most satisfying journey of the trilogy." — Liverpool Echo
