3/5 74% Minions (2015) "Dang, it's hard to think straight when faced with the Minions. Their skittish cuteness somehow preempts scorn. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jun 26, 2015
4/5 93% Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (2015) "In which the world's most dauntless documentary-maker takes on the world's most litigious religion (we'd call it a cult but we don't want to get sued). " ‐ This is London
Posted Jun 26, 2015
1/5 31% Entourage (2015) "True bromance is a beautiful thing. Alas, we're here to talk about Entourage. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jun 19, 2015
4/5 97% The Look of Silence (2015) "An extraordinary follow-up from Joshua Oppenheimer to his groundbreaking Indonesia-set documentary, The Act of Killing. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jun 12, 2015
3/5 81% Queen and Country (2015) "This is the sequel to 1987's Hope and Glory, a coming-of-age yarn awash with illicit passion. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jun 5, 2015
3/5 81% Second Coming "The pace will be too slow for some but, still, if you make it to the end, you'll come away chuffed. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jun 5, 2015
3/5 50% Tomorrowland (2015) "Tomorrowland isn't terrible but, given its potential to be great, I left the cinema feeling rather sad. " ‐ This is London
Posted May 22, 2015
4/5 98% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "This summer's blockbuster offerings may be setting box office records, yet seem like holograms when compared with this weighty offering. " ‐ This is London
Posted May 15, 2015
4/5 77% Rosewater (2014) "Would you confess to crimes you hadn't committed? I know I would. I'd crack before my tormentors had even cleared their throats, which may be why I found Rosewater so inspiring. " ‐ This is London
Posted May 8, 2015
4/5 96% Phoenix (2015) "Bleak, yet somehow brimming with hope, Phoenix feels like a one-off. Catch it while you can. " ‐ This is London
Posted May 8, 2015
3/5 63% Samba (2015) "There are no weak links in the cast and Tahar Rahim is good value as a bubbly Brazilian, willing to package himself as an "exotic" to get on (his recreation of a famous Diet Coke ad, while cleaning windows, is particularly lovely). " ‐ This is London
Posted May 1, 2015
3/5 61% Unfriended (2015) "This is clever, even poignant stuff. Oldies as well as adolescents will find themselves intrigued. " ‐ This is London
Posted May 1, 2015
4/5 71% The Emperor's New Clothes "Respects our intelligence and bombards us with jolting facts about the ever-widening gap between rich and poor. " ‐ This is London
Posted Apr 25, 2015
4/5 79% The Falling (2015) "All hail an uncanny British thriller. " ‐ This is London
Posted Apr 24, 2015
4/5 92% Force Majeure (2014) "Östlund and his superb cast have made an odd, gripping movie. Let it rock your world. " ‐ This is London
Posted Apr 10, 2015
2/5 62% The Water Diviner (2015) "This handsome, earnest bit of piffle not only stars Russell Crowe but marks his directing debut. " ‐ This is London
Posted Apr 3, 2015
2/5 81% Furious 7 (2015) "The latest instalment of the franchise cost a pretty penny, yet often feels less like a slick blockbuster than a demented day-time soap. " ‐ This is London
Posted Apr 3, 2015
4/5 100% The Tale of the Princess Kaguya (2014) "As you'd expect from the co-founder of Studio Ghibli, Takahata has created a ravishing, technically perfect product and the hand-drawn, watercolour images explode with tender, humorous details. " ‐ This is London
Posted Mar 20, 2015
2/5 30% Insurgent (2015) "It was always going to be hard to match the fire-power of The Hunger Games series, but the gap is now huge. If Mockingjay Part 1 resembles a playful, sharp-toothed canine, Insurgent is more like a slug. " ‐ This is London
Posted Mar 20, 2015
2/5 60% Run All Night (2015) "The third collaboration between Neeson and Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra is made almost endurable by excellent acting from Neeson (his wounded eyes are hypnotic) along with Ed Harris, as Jimmy's mercurial boss Shawn. " ‐ This is London
Posted Mar 13, 2015

Posted Mar 13, 2015
3/5 77% Kill the Messenger (2014) "It's hard to look away as his world unwinds. " ‐ This is London
Posted Mar 6, 2015
3/5 98% Appropriate Behavior (2015) "Akhavan has limbs like Miranda Hart and, at times, seems as desperate to please. Yet she's got real charisma. When she stops trying so hard, the film soars. " ‐ This is London
Posted Mar 6, 2015
3/5 31% Chappie (2015) "I didn't think there was room in my heart for another kind-bot-in-a-cruel-world. I was wrong. " ‐ This is London
Posted Mar 6, 2015
2/5 27% The Wedding Ringer (2015) "Puerile bromance ... " ‐ This is London
Posted Feb 20, 2015
2/5 34% Blackhat (2015) "The global village may be vulnerable to computer geeks and unscrupulous corporations, but it's managed to block the progress of this opportunistic dud. Well done, everybody. Justice has been served. " ‐ This is London
Posted Feb 20, 2015
3/5 49% Cake (2015) "I was in pain during this indie drama, which may explain why I enjoyed it. " ‐ This is London

Posted Feb 13, 2015
3/5 88% Coherence (2014) "An entertaining, if talky, slice of indie sci-fi that involves one freaky comet and eight good-looking Californians. " ‐ This is London
Posted Feb 13, 2015
3/5 52% The Interview (2014) "You should see The Interview. But is it worth the price of admission? Though I will forever treasure its punch lines ("Your butt-hole is ironic!") the answer, alas, is no. " ‐ This is London
Posted Feb 6, 2015
3/5 72% Trash "A jaunty, gorgeously-acted thriller about three teens from the slums of Rio, who - when one of them finds a wallet in a pile of garbage - become entangled in the affairs of a corrupt mayoral candidate. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jan 30, 2015
4/5 74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) "To accuse the director of glorifying violence ... would be to miss the point: what fascinates him isn't strength but the porous border between righteous anger and pathology. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jan 30, 2015
91% The Departed (2006) "As in his remake of Cape Fear, Scorsese has mucked up a B-movie he professes to love: producing something full of twists but devoid of that lovely, fluttery, rare thing: surprise. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jan 25, 2015
2/5 46% The Gambler (2014) "The Gambler ... has become an advert for gambling. You couldn't make it up. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jan 23, 2015
2/5 12% Mortdecai (2015) "Resistible. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jan 23, 2015
4/5 90% A Most Violent Year (2015) "Bradford Young's cinematography is awesome, transforming bleak wastelands and mansions into visions of light. It's as if we're seeing everything through the eyes of Morales, to whom America is beauty incarnate. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jan 23, 2015
2/5 9% Taken 3 (2015) "The action sequences are not only visually confusing, but tension free. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jan 9, 2015
3/5 71% Into the Woods (2014) "Worth seeing. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jan 9, 2015
5/5 92% Birdman (2014) "Billy Wilder once said: "If you're going to tell people the truth, be funny or they'll kill you." I'm guessing Mexican writer/director Alejandro González Iñárritu would agree. " ‐ This is London
Posted Dec 26, 2014
4/5 72% Big Eyes (2014) "This is a nimble, often distressing biopic about the American artist Margaret Keane - best known for her kitschy portraits of children and kittens - that represents a lovely change of pace for tent-pole king Tim Burton. " ‐ This is London
Posted Dec 19, 2014
3/5 27% Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014) "Scott once seemed divine. Look on [Exodus], ye mighty, and despair. " ‐ This is London
Posted Dec 19, 2014
3/5 27% Annie (2014) "We get the Annie we deserve. This one is sweet, funny and soulless. Kids will love it. " ‐ This is London
Posted Dec 19, 2014
3/5 78% Electricity "The film works primarily as a vehicle for Deyn. " ‐ This is London
Posted Dec 12, 2014
3/5 82% Black Sea (2015) "There's also a neatly cruel twist, midway through, plus a general drive to undercut band-of-brothers clichés. The Russians - initially cast as primitives - develop in interesting ways. The same goes for Law's character. " ‐ This is London
Posted Dec 5, 2014
2/5 61% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) "What a horrible way to go. " ‐ This is London
Posted Dec 4, 2014

Posted Nov 28, 2014
3/5 100% Hockney "Hockney has always been fascinated by sleights of hand, double bluffs and illusions. Wright's documentary is at its most intimate when it acknowledges a painful fact: our national treasure is bloody hard to pin down. " ‐ This is London
Posted Nov 28, 2014
4/5 89% The Drop (2014) "The Drop is the last film Gandolfini made before his death. As send-offs go, it ain't too shabby. " ‐ This is London
Posted Nov 14, 2014
4/5 65% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) "The film-makers have kept Collins's best lines, allowing Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, as Katniss's two love rivals, to show off their genuine acting skills. " ‐ This is London
