3/5 77% Grand Piano (2014) " Nicely composed and played with an endearing sense of Hitchcockian humour, Grand Piano is well worth a tinkle." — Sky Movies
Posted Sep 18, 2014
3/5 51% Magic in the Moonlight (2014) " Between Firth's English bluster and Stone's gamine charms, the players hit just the right note of Coward-esque theatricality to complement Allen's settings and mood." — Sky Movies
Posted Sep 18, 2014
3/5 79% The Riot Club (Posh) " Good show." — Sky Movies
Posted Sep 18, 2014
4/5 71% The Boxtrolls (2014) " An object lesson in acceptance and the perils of eating too much cheese, The Boxtrolls is crate fun." — Sky Movies
Posted Sep 11, 2014
3/5 67% The Hundred-Foot Journey (2014) " All blandishments aside, the underlying optimism and engaging performances make for a thoroughly agreeable dish. And it all looks yum." — Sky Movies
Posted Sep 4, 2014
4/5 58% Before I Go to Sleep (2014) " A murky tale, intriguingly told." — Sky Movies
Posted Sep 4, 2014
2/5 27% Deliver Us from Evil (2014) " Written in stone or bellowed in Latin, guff is still guff." — Sky Movies
Posted Aug 28, 2014
3/5 45% Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) " With the element of originality gone, this trip to Sin City just ain't as gripping as the first. But you gotta admire its style." — Sky Movies
Posted Aug 28, 2014
3/5 29% Hector And The Search For Happiness (2014) " Your date will be smiling though the sniffles. You won't need to ungrit your teeth. Everyone goes home happy." — Sky Movies
Posted Aug 14, 2014
2/5 34% God's Pocket (2014) " The lack of coherence and backstory makes it hard to gain any sort of dramatic hold, not helped by Slattery's uncertain shifts in tone." — Sky Movies
Posted Aug 7, 2014
3/5 62% Mood Indigo (2014) " The surreal quirks fly like priests in inflatable rockets in the latest melan-comic doodle from the Spotless Mind of Michel Gondry." — Sky Movies
Posted Jul 31, 2014
2/5 10% The Nut Job (2014) " The scriptwriters don't exactly deliver an embarrassment of riches in the joke department ... Unless you're a sucker for rodent farts, in which case they come up trumps." — Sky Movies
Posted Jul 31, 2014
91% The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956) " Even middling Hitchcock is a cut above most thrillers." — Sky Movies
Posted Jul 29, 2014
4/5 86% Joe (2014) " After running a few fool's errands for Hollywood with the likes of Pineapple Express, Your Highness and The Sitter, director David Gordon Green makes a serious return to indie business with a full-blown case o' the Mississippi blues." — Sky Movies
Posted Jul 24, 2014
4/5 92% How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) " Textures and gestures are brilliantly rendered, the body language saying more about the characters and their relationships than any words ..." — Sky Movies
Posted Jul 10, 2014
1/5 29% 3 Days To Kill (2014) " Some sort of lazily conceived exercise designed to distract undemanding teens and people too knackered to follow anything of substance after a hard day's work." — Sky Movies
Posted Jun 19, 2014
3/5 80% The Fault In Our Stars (2014) " One weepie that never resorts to cheap manipulation, thanks to a wry script (based on John Green's chart-topping novel) and central performances to match ..." — Sky Movies
Posted Jun 19, 2014
3/5 54% Jersey Boys (2014) " Not only comes with all the post-war style and Noo Joizee-ness you'd expect from the story of an Italian-American boy band striving to make it big in the 50s and 60s, it plays its musical numbers dead straight." — Sky Movies
Posted Jun 19, 2014
3/5 23% Devil's Knot (2014) " Where some directors might have let the religious overtones induce feverish lapses into Southern Gothic, Egoyan wisely plays it as a straight procedural-cum-courtroom drama." — Sky Movies
Posted Jun 12, 2014
4/5 84% 22 Jump Street (2014) " Bigger, sillier... and as on the money as anything five credited screenwriters have collectively come up with in years." — Sky Movies
Posted Jun 5, 2014
4/5 73% Godzilla (2014) " Roarsome." — Sky Movies
Posted May 14, 2014
3/5 29% Pompeii (2014) " Thankfully, with its hokily enjoyable mix of sword-swinging heroics and CG pandemonium, Pompeii doesn't blow it." — Sky Movies
Posted May 1, 2014
4/5 73% Neighbors (2014) " Stupid, irresponsible, sweary, puerile, overloaded with pop culture references, and shamefully funny: Friday night just found its perfect partner." — Sky Movies
Posted May 1, 2014
4/5 93% The Past (2013) " Farhadi loosens the valve on a drip-feed of revelations, each one changing any assumptions prompted by the last." — Sky Movies
Posted Mar 27, 2014
3/5 79% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) " It's a Gonzo comedy in every sense." — Sky Movies
Posted Mar 27, 2014
4/5 78% The Machine (2014) " A B-movie of considerable ambition and substance." — Sky Movies
Posted Mar 20, 2014
3/5 22% Need For Speed (2014) " Sibling screenwriters George and John Gatins (the latter an Oscar nominee for Flight) deliver nothing that Smokey and the Bandit didn't manage at half the length and with twice the charm." — Sky Movies
Posted Mar 12, 2014
3/5 100% Yurusarezaru mono (Unforgiven) " There's no shortage of bloodshed, but rare is the film that uses bullets and flashing blades to provoke sadness rather than excitement." — Sky Movies
Posted Feb 27, 2014
2/5 13% Winter's Tale (2014) " It's not a total descent into romantic hell, but it gives a comprehensive tour of the upper circles." — Sky Movies
Posted Feb 20, 2014
5/5 95% The LEGO Movie (2014) " Slapstick. Wit. Invention. Random laser battles. While it's easy to get carried away by the action - as the characters frequently do - it's the joyful irreverence that makes this such a terrific ride." — Sky Movies
Posted Feb 13, 2014
2/5 51% Cuban Fury (2014) " The film is always keen to set up a gag but rarely makes the punchline worth it." — Sky Movies
Posted Feb 13, 2014
4/5 94% Her (2013) " This unlikely ménage-a-trois has created an offbeat romance of remarkable warmth and credibility." — Sky Movies
Posted Feb 13, 2014
3/5 76% The Invisible Woman (2013) " In pedigree and accuracy, The Invisible Woman is not in doubt. But with so many questions left unanswered, it feels like a love story unfulfilled." — Sky Movies
Posted Feb 6, 2014
3/5 64% August: Osage County (2013) " For all his character clichés, Letts' dialogue invariably comes with the sting of truth. You'll find something to empathise with even if you don't want to." — Sky Movies
Posted Jan 24, 2014
2/5 29% Grudge Match (2013) " There's nothing you won't see coming, from the plot to the preponderance of weight gags that generally end with "but you ate it"." — Sky Movies
Posted Jan 24, 2014
3/5 18% Devil's Due (2014) " While it plays by the occult numbers too frequently to create any real sense of dread, the filmmakers summon up enough fresh fiendishness to sustain the interest." — Sky Movies
Posted Jan 16, 2014
4/5 66% The Railway Man (2014) " An incredible tale of love, courage and humanity - and their opposites - the story of Eric Lomax sounds like it was dreamed up in a Hollywood melodrama workshop. But it's true." — Sky Movies
Posted Jan 9, 2014
3/5 38% Delivery Man (2013) " Now here's a novelty - a movie that might make you want to give Vince Vaughn a hug rather than a slap across his smart-alecky chops." — Sky Movies
Posted Jan 9, 2014
4/5 42% Oldboy (2013) " [Lee's] uncompromising attitude proves to be exactly what's needed to westernise a landmark in Asian extreme cinema - without dulling its edge." — Sky Movies
Posted Dec 5, 2013
1/5 2% Getaway (2013) " Little more than a series of repetitious chases that ploughs through the cliches like so many piled-up boxes, barrels, crates and Christmas trees. All that's missing is some blokes trying to cross the street with a plate glass window." — Sky Movies
Posted Dec 5, 2013
4/5 80% Saving Mr. Banks (2013) " Warm, heartening and often rather splendid, there's only one word for it. Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious..." — Sky Movies
Posted Nov 29, 2013
1/5 18% Vendetta (2014) " A disposable thriller with no aspirations to reality or serious social commentary..." — Sky Movies
Posted Nov 21, 2013
4/5 48% Parkland (2013) " Parkland is the most lucid dramatisation of the tragedy to come out of Hollywood yet." — Sky Movies
Posted Nov 21, 2013
3/5 34% The Counselor (2013) " As you'd expect from Scott, the action is efficient, clinical and nasty. If only the same could be said of McCarthy's dialogue, which always sounds pretty but too often lapses into profound irrelevance." — Sky Movies
Posted Nov 14, 2013
4/5 70% Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 (2013) " With jokes for every level of sophistication, not all hit the mark. But with so many visual twists and deliciously surreal turns, there's something fun going on in every frame." — Sky Movies
Posted Oct 23, 2013
3/5 83% Prince Avalanche (2013) " What emerges is a richly shot daydream whose vagaries will please the high-brow while frustrating the common hordes. But its general sensibility undoubtedly lies somewhere in the middle." — Sky Movies
Posted Oct 16, 2013
3/5 67% Turbo (2013) " Fast and furiously good natured, it certainly puts the gas into gastropod." — Sky Movies
Posted Oct 16, 2013
1/5 14% Baggage Claim (2013) " This is the sort of script you imagine came with little hearts over the 'i's instead of dots. With no jokes to freshen it up, it's cheesier than a ripe camembert in an unwashed sock." — Sky Movies
Posted Oct 9, 2013
4/5 89% Le Week-End (2014) " It's a poignant and frank delight, perfectly summed up by the most awkward after-dinner speech since Festen." — Sky Movies
Posted Oct 9, 2013
2/5 21% Girl Most Likely (2013) " Much of this could be forgiven if you had even the remotest shred of sympathy for Imogene. But from beginning to end, she's the sort of character you should cross the cinema foyer to avoid." — Sky Movies
