3/5 64% Lucy (2014) " French writer/director Luc Besson has created a cottage industry of female action heroines with big guns and small skirts." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Aug 22, 2014
4/5 21% Into The Storm (2014) " The acting is a washout, the dialogue thunderously bad and even Michael Fish could accurately forecast the ending - but when it comes to special effects, this eco-thriller whips-up one heck of a storm." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Aug 22, 2014
2/5 82% Hide Your Smiling Faces (2014) " The long silences and overdone symbolism make this feel like a hodgepodge of Mud, King of Summer and just about every other American indie film." — Daily Record [UK]
Posted Aug 15, 2014
2/5 10% The Nut Job (2014) " This week's talking-animal toon is bad enough to cause an allergic reaction in anyone above the age of five. Everyone else is advised to take along two peanuts, one for each ear." — Daily Record [UK]
Posted Aug 15, 2014
3/5 66% The Rover (2014) " For the first 10 minutes, director David Michod's down-and-dusty Outback drama looks like a winner. And then the wheels come off." — Daily Record [UK]
Posted Aug 15, 2014
4/5 77% The Inbetweeners Movie 2 " The lads plumb fresh depths but hit new comedy highs in this second TV-show spin-off." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Aug 7, 2014
5/5 92% Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) " A near-perfect mix of action, humour, imagination and wondrous special effects." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jul 24, 2014
1/5 5% Paranoia (2013) " Even as a straight-to-DVD release, this would fail to pass muster." — Daily Record [UK]
Posted Jul 23, 2014
1/5 0% Pudsey the Dog: The Movie " Deserves to be scraped from the lawn, bagged up and dropped into the wheelie bin." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jul 18, 2014
5/5 92% How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) " Funny, big-hearted and - as you'd expect - a visual feast, this a family film in every sense and one to be lapped-up by both kids and grown-ups alike." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jul 11, 2014
4/5 83% Begin Again (2014) " Fans of Once - or, indeed, anyone with a heart - will be swept away by the gentle, sweet-but-sad story." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jul 11, 2014
5/5 99% Boyhood (2014) " Boyhood is one of those extraordinary flicks that'll remind you just how life-affirming a trip to the cinema can be." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jul 11, 2014
2/5 0% The Anomaly " Best described as a noble failure." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jul 4, 2014

Posted Jun 27, 2014

Posted Jun 27, 2014
2/5 23% Devil's Knot (2014) " Approaches the tragedy suffered by six families and turns it into a vanilla drama that, if weren't for the big-name cast, would look more at home as a Channel 5 matinée." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jun 13, 2014
3/5 74% Oculus (2014) " There's a palpable sense of dread instead of just the usual cheap boo! moments." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jun 13, 2014
1/5 10% Grace Of Monaco " Despite having all the ingredients for an enjoyably glitzy piece of royal camp, it's formidably dull." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jun 6, 2014
3/5 84% 22 Jump Street (2014) " The gags in this follow-up to 21 Jump Street are wildly hit and miss, but its sense of glorious self-referential goofiness proves to be infectious." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jun 6, 2014
4/5 90% Edge of Tomorrow (2014) " What we have here is a blockbuster with brains, and explicit references to the Normandy landings of the Second World War are both knowing and well done." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted May 30, 2014
4/5 48% Maleficent (2014) " Disney's solid fantasy earns extra points thanks to both a sinister turn from Angelina Jolie and an understanding that fairytales are meant to be scary." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted May 30, 2014
2/5 52% Postman Pat: The Movie (2014) " Boasting spectacularly shoddy animation and gags that wouldn't amuse a dim-witted five-year-old, this is one to be thrown out with the junk mail." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted May 23, 2014
5/5 73% Godzilla (2014) " Not just a solidly enjoyable and exciting flick - with not one second of sag - it's also a strikingly beautiful piece of work." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted May 16, 2014
2/5 91% Frank (2014) " Music and mental illness collide in a comedy-drama that's weird but not always wonderful." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted May 9, 2014
1/5 24% The Canyons (2013) " The first question you'll ask yourself while walking out of The Canyons is, "What were they thinking?" The second may be "Were they thinking at all?"" — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted May 9, 2014
3/5 20% Sabotage (2014) " There won't be any awards but, for the first time, Arnie is actually acting here." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted May 9, 2014
11% After Earth (2013) " Calling After Earth the worst film ever made may be overstating things, but it's a disaster zone of Chernobyl-esque proportions." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted May 2, 2014
3/5 18% Tarzan (2014) " The characters' faces have the expressiveness of shop mannequins and the scenery looks as if it was created by a low-end PC." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted May 2, 2014
2/5 26% Brick Mansions (2014) " There are gunfights and car chases galore, but none of them are especially exciting since the film's characters are so lazily sketched." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted May 2, 2014
1/5 29% Pompeii (2014) " It's not just the ancient Roman city that gets burned to the ground here - careers are also convincingly incinerated by Paul WS Anderson's pitiful excuse for a historical disaster movie." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted May 2, 2014
4/5 73% Neighbors (2014) " Not since Knocked Up have the horrible and the hilarious made for such winning bedfellows." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted May 2, 2014
2/5 53% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) " The stars lack sparkle, the story is rote and workmanlike and the action unexciting." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Apr 9, 2014
29% Machete Kills (2013) " If nothing else, Robert Rodriguez's Grindhouse homage manages the herculean feat of making us feel sorry for Mel Gibson." — Daily Record [UK]
Posted Feb 7, 2014
4/5 92% Philomena (2013) " Despite the glum subject, Coogan and Dench raise plenty of smiles as the unlikeliest of couples." — Daily Record [UK]
Posted Feb 7, 2014

Posted Feb 7, 2014
4/5 96% Cutie And The Boxer (2013) " The film (cough) paints a compelling portrait of a true eccentric with a vast gulf between his dreams and his powers." — Daily Record [UK]
Posted Feb 7, 2014
2/5 18% Love Tomorrow " The problem? The stars -- both dancers, rather than actors -- struggle with bland dialogue. The drama comes too late and it's hard to care about the unconvincing pair." — Daily Record [UK]
Posted Feb 7, 2014
3/5 85% Seduced And Abandoned " It's an odd film but an entertaining one." — Daily Record [UK]

Posted Feb 7, 2014
3/5 81% Don Jon (2013) " Gordon-Levitt is on top form, as is Johansson as the type of girl who only takes her gum out to eat." — Daily Record [UK]
Posted Feb 7, 2014
3/5 68% The Best Man Holiday (2013) " It's an odd mix of bawdy comedy and blatant heart-tugging -- you'll be cringeing one moment and sniffing the next." — Daily Record [UK]
Posted Feb 7, 2014
2/5 18% Free Birds (2013) " This family-friendly animation gets off to an amusing start but soon flies off into la-la land." — Daily Record [UK]
Posted Feb 7, 2014
1/5 69% Powder Room " The acting is uniformly shocking, the storyline a cliché and there's a dearth of laughs, always a problem when your film is billed as a comedy." — Daily Record [UK]
Posted Feb 7, 2014
1/5 2% Getaway (2013) " What might have been a guilty pleasure is anything but thanks to badly-staged action scenes and a script that resembles a tick-list of action-flick cliches." — Daily Record [UK]
Posted Feb 7, 2014
2/5 76% Kill Your Darlings (2013) " The film suffers from the same problems as last year's On The Road, namely an undue reverence towards its characters." — Daily Record [UK]
Posted Feb 7, 2014
2/5 53% Out of the Furnace (2013) " It's the sort of drab thriller you'll probably walk out of." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 24, 2014
3/5 64% August: Osage County (2013) " It has an awesomely talented cast ill-served by a script that doesn't know whether it's a comedy or a drama. Still, it has its moments." — Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 24, 2014
2/5 29% Grudge Match (2013) " Stallone looks like someone who chooses his next project with the aid of a blindfold and a dartboard." — Daily Mirror [UK]
