4/5 58% The Signal (2014) " While following familiar sci-fi codes, what makes The Signal unique is the way it's transmitted. Because just when you think you've found its wavelength, it switches to another. " ‐ Sky Movies

3/5 56% Focus (2015) " Although it's the sort of film that can't pass a mirror without pointing a finger and winking at itself, it generally earns the right to do so. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Feb 26, 2015
5/5 93% No Country for Old Men (2007) " Only the Coen brothers could make a film so impressively brutal and yet so understated as this. It helps that the set-up is so fiendishly simple. Blood simple, you might say. " ‐ Sky Movies

Posted Dec 4, 2014
4/5 80% Get On Up (2014) " Exhaustive biography this is not. But in focusing on Brown's rise and heyday and with Boseman faultlessly capturing his groove, you can't fail to have yourself a funky time. " ‐ Sky Movies
