3/5 89% Locke (2014) " Writer-director Steven Knight tries too hard to make us love his hard-working, old-school everyman." — This is London
Posted Apr 18, 2014
4/5 100% We Are the Best! (2014) " If this film were a pair of knickers, they'd be the kind of knickers you'd think twice about hanging on the line." — This is London
Posted Apr 18, 2014
3/5 67% Magic Magic (2013) " Silva, like all good film-makers, is a magician. But thanks to the last-minute fumbling, we're left with a broken spell." — This is London
Posted Apr 18, 2014
3/5 53% Reaching for the Moon (2013) " All the film's dynamism lies in the script and performances: Miranda Otto's Elizabeth is a perceptive, self-absorbed boozer; Glória Pires's Lota is an energetic, elitist bully." — This is London
Posted Apr 18, 2014
4/5 96% Rebel Without a Cause (1955) " Looks and sounds so good it makes your heart thump." — This is London
Posted Apr 18, 2014

Posted Apr 18, 2014
2/5 53% The Sea " The characters do a lot of crying; viewers are more likely to giggle." — This is London
Posted Apr 18, 2014
2/5 27% The Love Punch (2014) " Thompson seems convinced that she's taking part in a critique of careless capitalism, as opposed to a hideous hybrid of The Pink Panther, Sex and the City and Terry and June." — This is London
Posted Apr 18, 2014
1/5 48% L'étrange couleur des larmes de ton corps (The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears) " I was bored to tears (of a prosaic hue)." — This is London
Posted Apr 11, 2014
2/5 20% The Last Days On Mars (2013) " Even at 98 minutes, the whole thing lasts way too long." — This is London
Posted Apr 11, 2014
2/5 41% Pioneer " The diving sequences are involving, but the pressure seems to have gotten to the scriptwriters. Brain death is the result." — This is London
Posted Apr 11, 2014
2/5 50% Khumba (2013) " The kids' movie market is crowded with superior specimens; they'll eat Khumba alive." — This is London
Posted Apr 11, 2014
2/5 50% The Quiet Ones (2014) " Though Harris and Cooke are wonderful together, other cast members - notably Erin Richards as sexy posh girl Kristina - are a problem." — This is London
Posted Apr 11, 2014
3/5 96% The Lunchbox (2014) " Batra clearly adores his characters. We get a taste for them, too." — This is London
Posted Apr 11, 2014
3/5 58% Half of a Yellow Sun (2014) " [A] drab adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's prize-winning novel ..." — This is London
Posted Apr 11, 2014
5/5 100% Le Roi et l'oiseau (The King and the Mockingbird) (2003) " Paul Grimault's influential cartoon contains some of the most beautiful animation ever, melding the dreamy weirdness of a Giorgio de Chirico painting with folk-art sweetness." — This is London
Posted Apr 11, 2014
3/5 80% The Raid 2 (2014) " Men snap, crackle and pop before our eyes, their broken bones part of the gloriously kitsch, balletic fun." — This is London
Posted Apr 11, 2014
3/5 68% Visitors (2014) " The score, by Philip Glass, adds to the off-kilter mood and the faces of a serene gorilla, and a moody child in a playground, prove especially absorbing." — This is London
Posted Apr 4, 2014
3/5 53% Haunter (2013) " It's hard to dislike a film that has so much fun with the idea that for isolated teens, every day is like Sunday." — This is London
Posted Apr 4, 2014
2/5 18% Honour (2014) " It's an eye-catching premise, though first-time director/writer Shan Khan lacks the rigour or panache to do it justice." — This is London
Posted Apr 4, 2014
3/5 73% The Motel Life (2013) " The whole thing is deep-down conservative and wetter than a Labrador's kiss." — This is London
Posted Apr 4, 2014
4/5 80% Tom à la ferme (Tom at the Farm) " The third act is hard to swallow but it hardly matters. Dolan looks like Farley Granger and shoots like Hitchcock." — This is London
Posted Apr 4, 2014
3/5 47% Rio 2 (2014) " A cosy behemoth that kids (and even their parents) will find impossible to resist." — This is London
Posted Apr 4, 2014
3/5 40% Divergent (2014) " Those with a high tolerance for blockbusters in which non-fetishised females save the day will be able to put up with its flaws - including lacklustre action sequences and a preoccupation with tattoos." — This is London
Posted Apr 4, 2014
3/5 83% Romeo And Juliet (Broadway Hd) (2014) " The lovers' first scene together is moving, while performances by Jayne Houdyshell (the nurse) and Christian Camargo (Mercutio) growl with intelligence." — This is London
Posted Mar 28, 2014
3/5 67% Afternoon Delight (2013) " Tension dissolves towards the end but Jane Lynch's turn (as Rachel's pompous, self-referential shrink) never gets old." — This is London
Posted Mar 28, 2014
4/5 89% Dangerous Acts Starring The Unstable Elements Of Belarus " Recommended viewing, especially given recent events in Ukraine." — This is London
Posted Mar 28, 2014
2/5 0% Almost Married " If this was on TV, you'd switch channels." — This is London
Posted Mar 28, 2014
3/5 67% Leave The World Behind (2014) " A stage-managed yet weirdly gripping documentary that tracks the final tour of DJ trio Swedish House Mafia." — This is London
Posted Mar 28, 2014
3/5 77% The Borderlands (2014) " Once things start to go bump in the night it all gets yawnsome." — This is London
Posted Mar 28, 2014
2/5 38% The Fold " An interesting premise (sexually scrambled Anglican vicar struggles to accept the death of her teenage daughter) is let down by weak direction and dialogue in this Cornwall-set Brit drama." — This is London
Posted Mar 28, 2014
3/5 79% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) " Sad to report that James Bobin's follow-up to his bizarre and adorable 2011 franchise reboot, The Muppets, mostly errs on the side of caution." — This is London
Posted Mar 28, 2014

Posted Mar 28, 2014

Posted Mar 21, 2014
3/5 98% Starred Up (2014) " Luckily, the film's gritty atmosphere prevails." — This is London
Posted Mar 21, 2014
3/5 71% Plot for Peace " Unless you think bored rich men who want to place themselves at the centre of history are intrinsically virtuous, Plot For Peace will leave you fizzing with frustration." — This is London
Posted Mar 14, 2014
4/5 98% The Invisible War (2012) " The Invisible War is as compelling as Silence in the House of God, Alex Gibney's study of abusive Catholic priests." — This is London
Posted Mar 14, 2014
2/5 54% The Zero Theorem " Alas, Terry Gilliam, the legendary 73-year-old director of this zany slice of futurama, really does seem to be stuck in a rut." — This is London
Posted Mar 14, 2014
3/5 77% Veronica Mars (2014) " Thomas's offering may not be earth-shattering but does induce a tingly sensation." — This is London
Posted Mar 14, 2014
3/5 79% Lamb Of God's As The Palaces Burn (2014) " [Blythe is] a performer desperate to prove his emotions are for real." — This is London
Posted Feb 28, 2014
2/5 78% The Patrol (2014) " Unfortunately, the writing and acting aren't quite sharp enough to make The Patrol a must-see for curious liberals. And the visual effects will underwhelm audiences in search of action." — This is London
Posted Feb 28, 2014
2/5 18% Ride Along (2014) " Ice Cube is a man with two expressions, while Hart has become a ubiquitous presence." — This is London
Posted Feb 28, 2014
3/5 —— Bafta Shorts 2014 " A chance to see all the nominees in the Short Film and Short Animation categories and discover for yourself that stuffing a movie with household names doesn't guarantee a win." — This is London
Posted Feb 28, 2014
4/5 87% Funny Face (1957) " If you're prepared to do a bit of revisionist thinking, it all makes sense." — This is London
Posted Feb 28, 2014

Posted Feb 28, 2014
4/5 100% Yurusarezaru mono (Unforgiven) " Clint Eastwood's 1992 western is adored by just about every critic in the world. Except me. Weirdly, I found Sang-il Lee's reverent remake gripping." — This is London
Posted Feb 28, 2014
2/5 46% The Book Thief (2013) " It's certainly pretty to look at, reminiscent of those Disneyland parades where horses are much in evidence, but their excrement (thanks to neat little sacks attached to the creatures' nether regions) never soils the ground." — This is London
Posted Feb 28, 2014
2/5 48% Stalingrad (2014) " The direction's so crude, and actress Yana Studilina so 24/7 pouty, that you'll be more tempted to laugh than cry." — This is London
Posted Feb 21, 2014
4/5 95% Stranger by the Lake (2014) " Like a wry scientist, wading through the jungle, Guiraudie notes every tiny, unwritten law. It's infectious stuff." — This is London
Posted Feb 21, 2014
2/5 13% Winter's Tale (2014) " If these actors felt they owed Goldsman a debt, they've paid it in full." — This is London
