4/5 94% 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 80% The Machine (2014) " A B-movie of considerable ambition and substance." — Sky Movies
Posted Mar 20, 2014
3/5 23% 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 96% 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 54% 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 (2014) " 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 30% 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 79% 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 49% 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 91% 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 20% 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
Posted Sep 26, 2013
3/5 9% Runner Runner (2013) " Makes up for its lacks of originality with more flash than a One Direction press conference." — Sky Movies
Posted Sep 26, 2013
2/5 8% Justin and the Knights of Valour " If imitation is flattery, the makers of How To Train Your Dragon and the Oscar-winning Brave must never have felt flatter." — Sky Movies
Posted Sep 11, 2013
3/5 58% Riddick (2013) " Twohy gets the Pitch Black saga back where it belongs: at the B-movie end of the sci-fi universe." — Sky Movies
Posted Sep 4, 2013
1/5 15% Top Cat:The Movie (UK) " From the objectification of females to the condoning of crime, the mild political incorrectness of the 1960s fits uneasily with the 21st century upgrades." — Sky Movies
Posted Aug 2, 2013
3/5 65% The Heat (2013) " Good for a few chalk-and-cheese chuckles but no real belly laughs." — Sky Movies
Posted Jul 31, 2013
3/5 93% Frances Ha (2013) " Despite Gerwig's natural appeal and talent as a performer, Frances' self-absorption and flakiness begin to grate." — Sky Movies
Posted Jul 25, 2013
4/5 78% Monsters University (2013) " From sunny autumn mornings to rainy afternoons and gloaming dusks, it feels like the couldn't-be cartoonier characters are going about their business in a very real world." — Sky Movies
Posted Jul 10, 2013
3/5 31% Chasing Mavericks (2012) " Butler and Weston forge a credible bond, with able on-shore support coming from Abigail Spencer as Frosty's saintly wife, Hunger Gamer Leven Rambin as Jay's sweetheart and, of course, yummy mummy Shue." — Sky Movies
Posted Jul 4, 2013
2/5 60% The Bling Ring (2013) " Perhaps Coppola errs towards the mundane to emphasise that these were just typical, peer-pressured California kids. But being credible doesn't make them interesting." — Sky Movies
Posted Jul 3, 2013
3/5 83% This Is the End (2013) " Guffaw you will, but like a middling sketch show, it gives your sides too many opportunities to recover." — Sky Movies
Posted Jun 26, 2013
3/5 56% Snitch (2013) " Consider it time well served." — Sky Movies
Posted Jun 19, 2013
3/5 48% Black Rock (2013) " It's Aselton and Bell who really impress, their characters providing the glue of credibility that prevents the increasingly overwrought situation from coming apart." — Sky Movies
Posted Jun 19, 2013
4/5 56% Man of Steel (2013) " Nothing will go down in history ... but Man of Steel still makes an impact. Whether you emerge energised or simply dazed, you'll know your blocks have been well and truly busted." — Sky Movies
Posted Jun 12, 2013
3/5 95% Behind the Candelabra (2013) " While everything looks splendid, the film engages less the longer it goes on. True story or no, the final act treads very familiar territory." — Sky Movies
Posted Jun 6, 2013
2/5 7% The Big Wedding (2013) " This is one of those farces you come away from thinking the French would have done better. Then you discover that the French have already done it, and better." — Sky Movies
Posted May 29, 2013
4/5 68% Fast & Furious 6 (2013) " Once you're hooked to its towbar, it's hard to let go." — Sky Movies
Posted May 16, 2013
2/5 34% Deadfall (2012) " From characters and dialogue to the belief-beggaring contrivances of the plot, everything about it feels utterly phony." — Sky Movies
Posted May 9, 2013
3/5 74% Chimpanzee (2012) " Clever editing enhances the drama, while time-lapse sequences and crystal-clear photography complete a captivating picture of jungle life." — Sky Movies
Posted May 2, 2013
3/5 58% The Eye of the Storm (2012) " [A] handsome, if patchy, rendering of Patrick White's story of manipulation and dysfunction among the rich and selfish." — Sky Movies
Posted May 2, 2013
3/5 74% Love Is All You Need (2013) " The scenery is lovely. Brosnan won't lose any admirers either. But by imbuing Ida with the perfect blend of optimism, courage and vulnerability, it's the radiant Dyrholm who'll make you go "aaahhh"." — Sky Movies
Posted Apr 17, 2013
3/5 52% Jack the Giant Slayer (2013) " Once upon a time there was a movie that stayed faithful to its fairy tale roots while adding some welcome folkloric touches of its own." — Sky Movies
Posted Mar 20, 2013
3/5 50% Welcome to the Punch (2013) " The result is a tightly plotted thriller that looks like The Shard but occasionally sounds like The Gherkin. It gets away with it." — Sky Movies
Posted Mar 13, 2013
3/5 41% Parker (2013) " Under Taylor Hackford's efficient direction, Parker delivers on all counts." — Sky Movies
