3/5 71% 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 81% 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 41% 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 90% 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 79% 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
3/5 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) " Marvel fans will be left writhing with pleasure." — This is London
Posted Mar 28, 2014
3/5 48% Yves Saint Laurent (2014) " Surprisingly entertaining and, in places, scissor sharp." — This is London
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 53% The Zero Theorem (2014) " 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 78% 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

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 47% 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 94% 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
Posted Feb 21, 2014
4/5 100% A World Not Ours (2014) " A reference to the Holocaust feels awkward, but otherwise the blend of personal and political is electrifying." — This is London
Posted Feb 21, 2014
4/5 85% Only Lovers Left Alive (2014) " Whenever Jarmusch lets his soundtrack - and his stars - do the talking, the right notes get struck." — This is London
Posted Feb 21, 2014
2/5 38% 8 Minutes Idle " Once Lombard starts throwing stilettos, you know it's time to get off the line." — This is London
Posted Feb 14, 2014
3/5 75% The Pirate Fairy (2014) " Because Hiddleston is a genius and the scriptwriters obviously adore him, the ocean-bound scenes are less nightmarishly tedious than non-fans of the genre might expect." — This is London
Posted Feb 14, 2014
2/5 32% The Monuments Men (2014) " This is by no means a short film, yet somehow none of the characters, or any of their detective work, has time to make an impression." — This is London
Posted Feb 14, 2014
4/5 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) " Though not everything about The Lego Movie is awesome, you'll leave the cinema wearing a real smile." — This is London
Posted Feb 14, 2014
2/5 15% Endless Love (2014) " Sanitised re-make of Zeffirelli's cult dud." — This is London
Posted Feb 14, 2014
2/5 52% Cuban Fury (2014) " Cuban Fury should be to salsa what Blades of Glory was to ice-skating but Frost insists on playing it straight." — This is London
Posted Feb 14, 2014
3/5 76% The Invisible Woman (2013) " Fiennes has neither disgraced, nor distinguished himself, with this solemn soap. He wants to tell Nelly's story but the real woman - and the man she spent 13 years of her life with - slips through his fingers." — This is London
Posted Feb 7, 2014
3/5 79% Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014) " It's actually based on characters from Sixties TV series The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, yet there's nothing dusty about the first 60 minutes of the script (the ending drags but hey, you can't have everything)." — This is London
Posted Feb 7, 2014
2/5 4% I, Frankenstein (2014) " Aaron Eckhart plays the thoroughly modern monster, caught up in a battle between good and evil that threatens all mankind. Somehow he finds time for romance." — This is London
Posted Jan 31, 2014
3/5 88% Journal de France " Has moments of magic, but you can't help feeling that an outsider would have fashioned something with more bite." — This is London
Posted Jan 31, 2014
2/5 22% That Awkward Moment (2014) " Efron turns out to be the weak link. He's a fun guy but are audiences ready to commit to him as a dramatic lead? Silence? That's what I thought." — This is London
Posted Jan 31, 2014
3/5 75% Lone Survivor (2014) " An occasionally smart script - and four excellent actors - keep the project grounded." — This is London
Posted Jan 31, 2014
4/5 84% The Armstrong Lie (2013) " Power must never be mistaken for virtue, warns Gibney, and self-regulation doesn't work. Even the best of us need to be kept an eye on." — This is London
Posted Jan 31, 2014
3/5 67% Fonzy (2014) " There's a sweetness to the proceedings that makes you sort of glad it wasn't strangled at birth." — This is London
Posted Jan 24, 2014
2/5 79% Teenage (2014) " Ambitious but also confusing and often trite ..." — This is London
Posted Jan 24, 2014
4/5 94% Dark Days (2000) " A black-and-white hymn to the energy of the dispossessed, made in the late 1990s, but still horribly relevant." — This is London
Posted Jan 24, 2014
4/5 64% August: Osage County (2013) " This is a movie about crummy mummies in which everyone looks their age. That will strike many as a downer but I was left wanting more." — This is London
Posted Jan 24, 2014
2/5 18% Devil's Due (2014) " Boasts a bellyful of unintentional laughs." — This is London
Posted Jan 17, 2014
3/5 71% A Coffee in Berlin (2014) " Jan Ole Gerster's debut often feels reminiscent of last year's Frances Ha. But something's missing." — This is London
