2/5 18% Sex Tape (2014) " Sex Tape is brisk but annoyingly light on laughs, a slight fumbling of an idea that deserved a more rigorous exploration." — The List
Posted Sep 1, 2014
2/5 62% Million Dollar Arm (2014) " Hamm's charm works well playing a debonair scoundrel on television but in this bland, family friendly offering, it's a resource that's quickly drained." — The List
Posted Aug 26, 2014
4/5 86% Alleluia " Alleluia is an unpleasantly perverse psychodrama that certainly delivers on the nastiness of the premise; DueƱas and Lucas both give intense performances, and the result is enough to make both sexes think twice about online romance." — The List
Posted Aug 20, 2014
2/5 44% Planes: Fire And Rescue (2014) " As with the first film, children will be drawn to the bright colours and simple morals, which makes some of the sexual and racial stereotyping on the sidelines rather regrettable." — The List
Posted Aug 5, 2014
2/5 48% Earth to Echo (2014) " Audiences who like to imagine that they could make a better film themselves may well, in this instance, be correct." — The List
Posted Jul 30, 2014
3/5 57% The Purge: Anarchy (2014) " The Purge: Anarchy is a welcome expansion of the first film's concept, and shrewdly fills a void as one of the few adult-orientated action films in the family-friendly summer schedule." — The List
Posted Jul 22, 2014
2/5 10% The Nut Job (2014) " The Nut Job feels like an archly contrived excuse to justify the groaning pun of the title." — The List
Posted Jul 8, 2014
4/5 99% Boyhood (2014) " An authentically awkward, ordinary life, scrupulously observed." — The List
Posted Jul 8, 2014
3/5 91% Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case (2014) " While little more than an update on an ongoing dispute, The Fake Case is a welcome chance to catch up with the quirky artist's heroic struggle for freedom." — The List
Posted Jun 23, 2014
4/5 86% Joe (2014) " Joe may be too bleak and unsparing for some tastes, but it's an adult, accomplished drama that elevates an ordinary story to near-operatic heights." — The List
Posted Jun 19, 2014
2/5 95% Snowpiercer (2014) " Snowpiercer is leaden and confused, an all-star disaster of a movie, of interest only to connoisseurs of expensively botched sci-fi money-pits." — The List
Posted Jun 19, 2014
2/5 79% Welcome To New York " A film which says little of consequence beyond fictionalizing its target; only Bisset's Lady Macbeth-like presence hits an appropriately hysterical note for this tabloid-trashy film which quickly chokes on its pretensions." — The List
Posted Jun 18, 2014
2/5 40% In Secret (2014) " Lange at least has an angle on her character; the rest of the cast simply hit their marks and spout dialogue like robots, delivering lines which should evoke erotic fervour, but are exchanged without urgency, conviction or belief." — The List
Posted May 20, 2014
2/5 16% Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return (2014) " A cynical cash-grab riding on the coat-tails of far better productions." — The List
Posted May 20, 2014
3/5 81% Pantani: The Accidental Death Of A Cyclist (2014) " There's not quite enough compelling visual material to justify feature length." — The List
Posted May 13, 2014
3/5 54% Fading Gigolo (2014) " Like the character he plays, Turturro clearly wants his film to be adored, but Fading Gigolo's decidedly male fantasy doesn't offer enough laughs or heart to be more than a passing diversion." — The List
Posted May 13, 2014
3/5 29% Pompeii (2014) " Much like Anderson's The Three Musketeers, the details are highly dubious, but the effect is strangely pleasing in its daft, anything-goes showmanship." — The List
Posted Apr 21, 2014
4/5 89% The Wind Rises (2014) " Few directors would dare to put the dilemmas inherent in military aircraft design to the fore, but Miyazaki's film deals sensitively with the notion that good work may be used for bad ends." — The List
Posted Apr 21, 2014
4/5 96% Blue Ruin (2014) " Blue Ruin is a simple story well told; it marks promising work from both Saulnier and Blair, and delivers on its promises of a tightly-wound descent into hell." — The List
Posted Apr 21, 2014
3/5 79% The Raid 2 (2014) " The last hour of The Raid 2 is all-action, delivering several astonishing set-pieces, one involving a hammer-whirling girl on a packed commuter train, the other a series of fights in and around cars careering through busy city streets." — The List
Posted Apr 9, 2014
2/5 36% The Quiet Ones (2014) " Stranded in a dull-looking house, and with little action, Pogue's film gets bogged down in conversation and cod-scientific mumbo jumbo." — The List
Posted Apr 9, 2014
3/5 77% Noah (2014) " Compellingly weird and occasionally wonderful to behold." — The List
Posted Apr 1, 2014
3/5 48% Rio 2 (2014) " Rio 2 is an amiable enough cartoon, as forgettable as its predecessor but certainly colourful and incident packed enough to be marked as passable family entertainment." — The List
Posted Apr 1, 2014
3/5 82% The Double (2014) " The Double is a clever film, but despite its downtrodden hero, not a particularly empathetic experience." — The List
Posted Mar 13, 2014
2/5 81% The Bachelor Weekend (The Stag) (2014) " The Stag is an inoffensive debut for Butler, but a film on this subject needs a bit more cojones than this meek knockabout." — The List
Posted Mar 7, 2014
2/5 65% The French Minister (2014) " Tavernier's adaptation of the cult comic strip, Quai d'Orsay, is episodic, insular and hard work for non-Francophiles." — The List
Posted Mar 3, 2014
3/5 95% Ida (2014) " Both the character and the film blossom as Ida discovers the joys of nightclubs, John Coltrane and sex." — The List
Posted Feb 28, 2014
2/5 58% Before the Winter Chill (2014) " Before the Winter Chill is a rather odd film: excellent performances, a convincing milieu, and then a final twist that seems so improbable that all Claudel's careful work seems undone." — The List
Posted Feb 28, 2014
4/5 95% Grand Central " Considerable tension is elicited, but the characters are well enough drawn that the outcome of Grand Central is never clear." — The List
Posted Feb 26, 2014
2/5 63% Mood Indigo (2014) " There's a delicate romance buried within, but Gondry's endless stop motion tomfoolery and visual jokes prove overwhelming in all the wrong ways." — The List
Posted Feb 24, 2014
3/5 48% Stalingrad (2014) " If you're familiar with the historical specifics, Stalingrad is a reasonably engrossing war drama in the style of Days of Glory, well-played and with moments of vivid patriotic spectacle that look like an army recruiting poster come to life." — The List
Posted Feb 14, 2014
3/5 78% The Patrol (2014) " A well executed minor drama that casts a careful life on the inner lives of military personnel, and promises good things to come in terms of the young cast, and Tom Petch's future career." — The List
Posted Feb 4, 2014
3/5 53% Out of the Furnace (2013) " Affleck, Dafoe and Harrelson all do their very best to whip up a storm, but Cooper is guilty of wasting A-list talent on a B-movie revenge scenario." — The List
Posted Jan 16, 2014
2/5 86% Kiss the Water (2014) " The lazy structure, lack of narrative drive or visual stimulus quickly reveal the reasons that Boyd's life hasn't been tackled cinematically before." — The List
Posted Jan 16, 2014
3/5 77% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) " As a major filmmaker, it's about time Scorsese found some material that stretched his ideas, rather than his audience's patience." — The List
Posted Jan 16, 2014
3/5 47% Last Vegas (2013) " Those keen to see four princes of 80s cinema going through the motions will find their Last Vegas gamble pays off in minor ways." — The List
Posted Dec 30, 2013
4/5 89% Frozen (2013) " It may be old-fashioned, but it's also as close to an instant classic as family films get." — The List
Posted Dec 3, 2013
2/5 2% Getaway (2013) " Filmed on the cheap in Bulgaria, it makes up for what it lacks in originality with a plethora of well-staged car-stunts, and puts action firmly at the centre of its limited appeal." — The List
Posted Dec 2, 2013
1/5 18% Free Birds (2013) " Free Birds lacks the humour, pathos or narrative skill of a proper children's film." — The List
Posted Nov 29, 2013
2/5 29% The Family (2013) " A lively premise and darkly humorous tone give way to predictable action and a dull finale." — The List
Posted Nov 21, 2013
3/5 73% Lee Daniels' The Butler (2013) " Long, ponderous, but undeniably entertaining, The Butler is a ritzy crash-course in US political change." — The List
Posted Nov 13, 2013
2/5 70% Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 (2013) " Audiences who appreciated the first film will enjoy the silliness, but uninitiated viewers may find a second serving of Meatballs is hard to swallow." — The List
Posted Oct 16, 2013
2/5 22% Romeo and Juliet (2013) " Far too reverent to the source material, po-faced, literal and without raising much intensity." — The List
Posted Oct 14, 2013
2/5 29% Machete Kills (2013) " Not funny enough to be a comedy, not weighty enough to be a real B-movie thriller ..." — The List
Posted Oct 14, 2013
4/5 67% Turbo (2013) " With a bright production design enlivened by strong 3D, and a simple, likeable story about self-actualisation, it's a slow but sure winner." — The List
Posted Oct 11, 2013
4/5 96% Metro Manila (2014) " Ellis proves that the slow-burning thriller can still work as both an entertainment and as a penetrating social critique." — The List
Posted Sep 20, 2013
3/5 79% 42 (2013) " Helgeland has crafted a decent sport movie, but one that feels too sanitized and feels too educationally minded to prove any genuine thought." — The List
Posted Sep 10, 2013
2/5 38% Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013) " Considerably less grounded in any kind of recognizable reality than the first chapter." — The List
Posted Sep 10, 2013
4/5 91% Blue Jasmine (2013) " Blue Jasmine marks a high-water mark for Blanchett, and for Allen, who demonstrates both the craftsmanship and the unique gift for balancing comedy and pathos which has eluded him for so long." — The List
Posted Sep 5, 2013
2/5 43% The Call (2013) " The serious subject of child abduction and murder isn't well served by the way Anderson's film veers into a comic book/vigilante drama, ultimately making this a call worth avoiding." — The List
