3/5 80% Saving Mr. Banks (2013) "It's a slow-moving but lightly charming story that brings back memories of the delightful Julie Andrews classic movie. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Nov 29, 2013
4/5 91% Blue Is The Warmest Color (2013) "The explicit segments are only half the story in this rewarding, beautifully-acted French film about the trials and tribulations of young love. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Nov 22, 2013
2/5 56% Breakfast With Jonny Wilkinson "This is a film that can't shake off its theatrical roots and the pace too often lags. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Nov 22, 2013
3/5 49% Parkland (2013) "A sad tale well told. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Nov 22, 2013
1/5 18% Vendetta (2014) "Dyer has even less presence than usual. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Nov 22, 2013
2/5 29% The Family (2013) "Their fish-out-of-water antics leave a nasty taste in the mouth rather than a smile on the face. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Nov 22, 2013
4/5 97% Gravity (2013) "The plot is one-track, the cast minimal and the pace leisurely. But it's a real pleasure to experience space in a movie without an alien in sight. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Nov 8, 2013
4/5 96% Enough Said (2013) "Aside from the script's lightness of touch, it's the characters' small quirks and tics that bring the film to such vibrant life. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Oct 18, 2013
91% Blue Jasmine (2013) "A deliciously dark and richly entertaining comedy drama, it's as enjoyable as anything this year. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Sep 27, 2013
21% Girl Most Likely (2013) "There's an over-reliance on Wiig's gift for ditzy, put-upon characters, although her charm wears thin, while the script veers between sit-com humour and pathos. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Sep 27, 2013
3/5 44% Cold Comes The Night (2014) "The film could almost pass for an episode of Breaking Bad, but it's redeemed by its moody tone and Eve... who gives her best performance to date. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Sep 20, 2013
4/5 89% Rush (2013) "It dips into the style, excitement and vibrancy of the sport and recreates the 70s atmosphere with a real sense of the period outside the crash barriers. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Sep 13, 2013
1/5 8% Diana (2013) "Diana can only be described as a fabulously awful film. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Sep 6, 2013
2/5 69% The Wolverine (2013) "Given the critical spanking that greeted the last Wolverine film, you may be wondering what the steel-clawed superhero is doing back on the big screen. It's a question that isn't answered by James Mangold's X-Men spin-off. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jul 18, 2013
3/5 56% Man of Steel (2013) "Just as things get interesting, attempts at characterisation are shredded as Snyder unleashes the big guns for a finale ripped straight from the Michael Bay 'more-is-less' school of filmmaking. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jun 13, 2013
79% Iron Man 3 (2013) "Thrilling, great looking and with a refreshingly comical tone, this is everything a summer blockbuster should be. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Apr 24, 2013
3/5 54% Oblivion (2013) "Much like his last film, Tron: Legacy, writer/director Joseph Kosinki has created a good-looking but unengaging experience. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Apr 10, 2013
2/5 66% Cloud Atlas (2012) "A bafflingly bonkers grand folly, it's weirdness on a grand but mostly unfathomable scale. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Feb 22, 2013
3/5 48% The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (2012) "Directed by Bill Condon, who helmed the last instalment, the film's an adequate end to the story but not much else. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Nov 13, 2012
5/5 92% Skyfall (2012) "Enthralling, explosive and often very funny, Skyfall doesn't just exceed expectations but shatters them. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Oct 19, 2012
5/5 87% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) "Bleak, black and brilliant. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jul 16, 2012
3/5 34% Battleship (2012) "Like the very best junkfood, Battleship has no nutritional value whatsoever but goes down easy. I just hope the film is meant to be a send-up. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Apr 12, 2012
2/5 49% Mirror Mirror (2012) "This grim offering isn't just terribly unfunny and mean spirited, it's also very boring. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Apr 6, 2012
3/5 59% Wanderlust (2012) "While there's little rom, with no discernible chemistry between Rudd and Aniston, Wanderlust scores better when it comes to com. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Mar 1, 2012
2/5 26% This Means War (2012) "Not funny, just creepy. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Mar 1, 2012
17% Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2012) "Quite why Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine, the directors of the brilliant Crank, got involved is anyone's guess. Perhaps their tax bills were also due. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Feb 17, 2012
4/5 80% Young Adult (2011) "Go see. Squirmingly funny. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Feb 3, 2012
4/5 90% Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011) "Mesmerising. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Feb 3, 2012
5/5 76% Bombay Beach (2011) "While candidly exploring the hard lives of the characters and their families, the film earns an extra star from some inspired moments of magical realism, with one scene involving a child, a fire engine and a Bob Dylan tune that'll make your spine tingle. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Feb 3, 2012
4/5 89% The Descendants (2011) "As is typical with Payne, awkwardness abounds leading to some moments of excruciating comedy. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]

Posted Jan 26, 2012
2/5 13% W.E. (2012) "Apart from some nice period detail, Her Madgesty's second attempt to direct a film is an abysmal failure. The dialogue is wooden at best and the performances risible. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 20, 2012
2/5 43% J. Edgar (2011) "Given that the man is among the most controversial figures of recent US history, making a film this tedious really takes some doing. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 19, 2012
5/5 80% Haywire (2012) "This isn't just the best action film since Bourne, it also exudes the sort of flair and cool of a 60s Bond movie. A class act. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 13, 2012
4/5 88% Margin Call (2011) "It feels a little stagey, but this is the film Wall Street 2 should have been. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 12, 2012
5/5 79% Shame (2011) "A scene where [Fassbender's] on the Tube checking out a woman, who just happens to be wearing a wedding ring, is chillingly clever. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 12, 2012
1/5 12% The Darkest Hour (2011) "Our planet is ravaged by aliens in yet another sci-fi calamity so bad you'll be cheering on the invaders. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 12, 2012
3/5 77% War Horse (2011) "War Horse is perfect material for the world's foremost purveyor of cinematic sentimentality. Think ET with hooves. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 12, 2012
2/5 51% The Iron Lady (2012) "Streep may be a hot Oscar favourite but you need more than a star turn to make a good movie, and The Iron Lady isn't likely to please anyone in Britain. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 5, 2012
4/5 93% Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (2011) "M:I4 proves to be a sugar rush of pure, unadulterated entertainment. Even with a running time of two-plus hours, there's not an ounce of fat. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Dec 23, 2011
4/5 86% The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) "If you're about to enter the world of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo for the first time, this is a terrific place to start. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Dec 23, 2011
3/5 59% Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011) "Another flashily unorthodox update, although the story's not quite as riveting as last time. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Dec 15, 2011
2/5 12% Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked (2011) "Aside from the in-laws threatening to stay until the New Year, one of the worst things about Christmas is a new Alvin And The Chipmunks movie. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Dec 15, 2011
3/5 68% A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas (2011) "Although the humour is patchy, when the laughs hit they hit hard, slyly sending-up holiday season conventions... " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Dec 8, 2011
3/5 84% Puss in Boots (2011) "As you'd expect with DreamWorks, the animation is smooth and the 3D impressive, particularly when Puss and his partners in crime ride a giant beanstalk up into the heavens. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Dec 8, 2011
4/5 100% Well Digger's Daughter "This is enjoyable fluff and the perfect antidote to long winter nights. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Dec 8, 2011
1/5 7% New Year's Eve (2011) "[A] multi-stranded, over-earnest piece of schlock full of puddle-deep morality, product placement and zero laughs. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Dec 8, 2011
4/5 63% Another Earth (2011) "[A] haunting, thought-provoking film that, while lacking Independence Day-style action, brims with atmosphere and intelligence. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Dec 8, 2011
2/5 94% Hugo (2011) "The lesson to be learned is that [Scorsese] should stick to what he knows best, for Hugo won't appeal to anyone, least of all kids. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Dec 2, 2011
2/5 40% The Big Year (2011) "A comedy with fewer laughs than measles. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Dec 2, 2011
