4/5 81% The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came To Eden (2014) " To make a thrilling documentary about the past, you need dead people who were honest or creative in ways you can exploit. This extraordinary film, which deconstructs a murder mystery from the Thirties, has such people in spades." — This is London
Posted Jul 25, 2014
3/5 86% Joe (2014) " With a bolder script, Joe could have been a Texan masterpiece to rank alongside Badlands." — This is London
Posted Jul 25, 2014
2/5 0% Pudsey the Dog: The Movie " Don't be surprised, the next time you see Pudsey, if he's been given a muzzle." — This is London
Posted Jul 18, 2014
3/5 92% How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) " The characters in this movie are charmers. They've got me so well-trained, I'm even looking forward to HTTYD3." — This is London
Posted Jul 11, 2014
3/5 17% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) " Woohoo! Discombobulation is fun." — This is London
Posted Jul 11, 2014
2/5 0% The Anomaly " Admittedly, in director/star Noel Clarke's low-budget sci-fi actioner, the acting and script do provoke surprise: both are so bad, you find yourself wondering if what's unfolding is some kind of parody." — This is London
Posted Jul 4, 2014
2/5 36% Goddess " Keating's film career has barely started. Alas, it may already have jumped the shark." — This is London
Posted Jul 4, 2014
3/5 58% Keeping Rosy " I was determined to loathe the immaculate Charlotte yet, thanks to Peake, I found myself willing her on." — This is London
Posted Jul 4, 2014
4/5 91% Mistaken for Strangers (2014) " A beautiful movie about fame and family." — This is London
Posted Jun 27, 2014
2/5 26% Walking on Sunshine " Arterton, blonde sister of Gemma, is pallid from every angle, while Scholey feels like a backing singer who, for some reason, has been booted centre stage." — This is London
Posted Jun 27, 2014
4/5 82% Camille Claudel, 1915 (2013) " Throughout it all, Binoche's face shivers with emotions that Claudel herself cannot pin down." — This is London
Posted Jun 20, 2014
3/5 80% The Fault In Our Stars (2014) " For every nauseating moment in this cancer-related weepie, there's a lovely, thought-provoking exchange of ideas." — This is London
Posted Jun 20, 2014
3/5 83% Belle (2014) " Asante's own work of art is lamentably cautious but does, ultimately, throw up things we haven't seen before. It's pretty, in other words, but not entirely vacant." — This is London
Posted Jun 13, 2014
2/5 67% The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet " TS Spivet looks wacky but is, in fact, purely bland. Films like this work best if you ignore the dialogue. Bring ear buds and you'll be fine." — This is London
Posted Jun 13, 2014
3/5 93% Fruitvale Station (2013) " Jordan doesn't beg for our sympathy and is all the more magnetic as a result. The finale is devastating." — This is London
Posted Jun 6, 2014
3/5 83% Pulp: a Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets (2014) " Never mind life, death and supermarkets, this is a film about a diva. If you're in the mood to pay homage, you're sorted." — This is London
Posted Jun 6, 2014
4/5 49% Maleficent (2014) " There's no denying this project's peculiar, landscape-changing power." — This is London
Posted May 30, 2014
3/5 90% Edge of Tomorrow (2014) " This summer blockbuster is almost ready to conquer the world. But not quite." — This is London
Posted May 30, 2014
3/5 50% Postman Pat: The Movie (2014) " There are far worse ways to spend 88 minutes of your life." — This is London
Posted May 23, 2014
2/5 54% Fading Gigolo (2014) " The script rings false from the off." — This is London
Posted May 23, 2014
3/5 92% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) " To ensure long-term survival, this franchise needs to evolve. In terms of the competition, however, it's still light years ahead." — This is London
Posted May 23, 2014
3/5 81% Pantani: The Accidental Death Of A Cyclist (2014) " The sense you get of this man is that he was trying to heal his own wounds by winning." — This is London
Posted May 16, 2014
4/5 76% Concussion (2013) " It boasts a fantastic turn from TV veteran Robin Weigert and is visually reminiscent of Todd Haynes's Safe (it's beautiful to look at)." — This is London
Posted May 16, 2014
3/5 84% The Two Faces of January (2014) " The film at times resembles an Agatha Christie movie - the kind of classy product TV companies love to show on a snoozy Sunday afternoon." — This is London
Posted May 16, 2014
3/5 20% Sabotage (2014) " Arnie does his best but, as so often, turns out to be limited in scope: when called upon to look upset, his inner cyborg punctures the mood; when he sighs, we snigger." — This is London
Posted May 9, 2014
3/5 89% The Wind Rises (2014) " It's being billed as Hayao Miyazaki's last film. He can't leave us this way." — This is London
Posted May 9, 2014
4/5 100% Ilo Ilo (2014) " Low on feel-good pizzazz but absolutely brimming with love and respect." — This is London
Posted May 2, 2014
4/5 73% Neighbors (2014) " The film exploits Efron's hairless six-pack. It also exposes his gift for comedy. Still, this is Rogen's show." — This is London
Posted May 2, 2014
3/5 91% Cupcakes " The contest's rakish, casually sexist compere (Denis Sandler) is also spot on, while many of the international "acts" are hilarious." — This is London
Posted Apr 28, 2014
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 97% 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 58% 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
3/5 96% Wrinkles (2014) " The animation is simple but lovely." — This is London
Posted Apr 18, 2014
2/5 50% The Sea " The characters do a lot of crying; viewers are more likely to giggle." — This is London
Posted Apr 18, 2014
2/5 26% 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% The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears (2014) " 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 47% 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 36% 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 53% 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 79% 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 69% 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 43% 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 71% The Motel Life (2013) " The whole thing is deep-down conservative and wetter than a Labrador's kiss." — This is London
