3/5 85% Night Moves (2014) " A suspenseful and thought-proving thriller ..." — Daily Express
Posted Aug 28, 2014
60% The Grand Seduction (2014) " Brendan Gleeson brings bags of charm and feeling to his role as the local-schemer-in-chief and there's some poignancy in the community's desperation to find employment." — Daily Express
Posted Aug 28, 2014
3/5 21% Let's Be Cops (2014) " An agreeably dumb comedy about two 30-year-old men with self-esteem issues who find the perfect boost to their fragile egos and frustrated lives....by playing at policemen." — Daily Express
Posted Aug 28, 2014
4/5 62% Million Dollar Arm (2014) " It might sound like a superhero movie but Million Dollar Arm is a stirringly human drama based on a true story and a welcome reminder that extraordinary feats can be achieved by mere mortals." — Daily Express
Posted Aug 28, 2014
93% Iron Man (2008) " Iron Man never feels like a laboured prologue that's simply laying the groundwork for further instalments. It's a zippy, action-packed adventure in its own right, boasting top-drawer special effects and some cracking action sequences." — Daily Express
Posted Aug 25, 2014
99% Toy Story 3 (2010) " Forget Butch and Sundance, Bogart and Bacall or Hepburn and Tracy. There is no more engaging double act in the movies than Woody and Buzz and the pair make a triumphant, long-awaited comeback in Toy Story 3." — Daily Express
Posted Aug 25, 2014
4/5 96% Ratatouille (2007) " It's one of the strange ironies of Hollywood that adult audiences are usually treated like imbeciles while children receive much greater respect." — Daily Express
Posted Aug 24, 2014
3/5 61% Hercules (2014) " The picture is a fast-paced, unpretentious action adventure with more personality than you might expect." — Daily Express
Posted Jul 24, 2014
3/5 90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) " A thoughtful if not exactly pulse-pounding sequel to 2011's Rise Of Planet Of The Apes." — Daily Express
Posted Jul 17, 2014
4/5 86% Cold in July (2014) " An intriguing, gamey thriller that revels in throwing the audience off balance as it delves into ever more troubling territory." — Daily Express
Posted Jun 27, 2014
4/5 88% Chef (2014) " Trundles along amiably and amusingly with its heart very much in the right place." — Daily Express
Posted Jun 27, 2014
4/5 78% Seve " Seve offers fascinating insights not just into the life of legendary golfer Seve Ballesteros but into what it takes to succeed at the highest level: principally extraordinary dedication and an almost divine sense of mission." — Daily Express
Posted Jun 27, 2014
3/5 40% In Secret (2014) " Boasts strong performances from a first class cast but never quite justifies its existence." — Daily Express
Posted May 15, 2014
4/5 84% The Two Faces of January (2014) " A pleasurable throwback to the character-driven thrillers of Alfred Hitchcock, rich in atmosphere and immaculately tailored." — Daily Express
Posted May 15, 2014
3/5 73% Godzilla (2014) " The family dynamics give the picture a fierce human focus and Cranston is terrific as a lonely Cassandra; his surname Brody presumably a nod to Roy Scheider's Brody in Jaws." — Daily Express
Posted May 15, 2014
4/5 100% Next Goal Wins (2014) " The pace is a little leisurely, and it doesn't demand to be seen on a big screen, but much like the characters it portrays Next Goal Wins is an unassuming winner." — Daily Express
Posted May 8, 2014
1/5 20% Sabotage (2014) " This is an ugly, brutal beast of a picture that plays like a video nasty from the Eighties." — Daily Express
Posted May 8, 2014
3/5 73% Neighbors (2014) " Rogen and Byrne spark well together and Efron is an amusingly primped doofus while director Nicholas Stoller keeps the energy going despite scattershot plotting." — Daily Express
Posted May 1, 2014
0/5 29% Pompeii (2014) " Lifts shamelessly from Gladiator and Titanic, yet without an ounce of conviction or genuine feeling, the picture is oddly bereft of suspense but I think I know why. It's because we couldn't care less." — Daily Express
Posted May 1, 2014
3/5 24% The Other Woman (2014) " Stack extracts plenty of humour from the car-crash coming together of the two women with some good lines and quite raw emotion, especially from Mann's woman-on-the-verge-of-a-nervous breakdown." — Daily Express
Posted Apr 24, 2014
2/5 19% Transcendence (2014) " Transcendence is a sci-fi movie that should be daft fun but is, disappointedly, plodding and dull." — Daily Express
Posted Apr 24, 2014
3/5 87% Exhibition (2014) " Well acted, and occasionally droll, this is an abstract piece of work that doesn't quite excavate enough character interest to compensate for the lack of narrative." — Daily Express
Posted Apr 24, 2014
3/5 83% Tracks (2014) " Ultimately it feels more documentary-like than drama; a celebration of the local landscape and culture rather than a compelling narrative." — Daily Express
Posted Apr 24, 2014
3/5 27% The Love Punch (2014) " A moderately amusing diversion that coasts by on the charm of its cast. It might just put a spring in your step." — Daily Express
Posted Apr 17, 2014
4/5 53% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) " Director Marc Webb handles the multiple storylines and characters with aplomb and the action is vibrant, stylish and often funny." — Daily Express
Posted Apr 17, 2014
4/5 89% Locke (2014) " Locke is an ingenious British film that spends ninety minutes in a car with Tom Hardy and keeps you gripped throughout." — Daily Express
Posted Apr 17, 2014
3/5 41% Divergent (2014) " The blend of action, romance and political plotting is handled with smooth efficiency by director Neil Burger and Tris is an appealing, if ever so slightly dull heroine." — Daily Express
Posted Apr 3, 2014
3/5 48% Rio 2 (2014) " Exuberant musical numbers and gorgeous visuals make this fly." — Daily Express
Posted Apr 3, 2014
4/5 77% Noah (2014) " A bold, fearsome epic about man's folly." — Daily Express
Posted Apr 3, 2014
3/5 94% The Past (2013) " The acting is good but it plays like an upscale soap opera, without any emotional payoff." — Daily Express
Posted Mar 27, 2014
3/5 79% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) " A jovial follow-up to 2011's engagingly batty The Muppets, with some great musical numbers, fun locations as the Muppets tour Europe and a ridiculous number of star cameos ..." — Daily Express
Posted Mar 27, 2014
5/5 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) " The result is a blockbuster with a brain and a superhero movie that feels ripped not from a comic book so much as today's headlines." — Daily Express
Posted Mar 27, 2014
3/5 68% About Last Night (2014) " It becomes a bit repetitive but has an energy missing from many romantic comedies plus some proper laughs." — Daily Express
Posted Mar 20, 2014
4/5 33% Labor Day (2014) " Go with the flow and give in, like Adele herself, and you might be genuinely moved." — Daily Express
Posted Mar 20, 2014
4/5 98% Starred Up (2014) " There are no easy answers, or unlikely transformations, just a superbly made, thought-provoking human drama with outstanding performances and just enough hope to carry the day." — Daily Express
Posted Mar 20, 2014
3/5 22% A Long Way Down (2014) " It's never dull and has some touching moments." — Daily Express
Posted Mar 20, 2014
2/5 22% Need For Speed (2014) " Paul and Poots will, I am sure, enjoy much better vehicles to come." — Daily Express
Posted Mar 13, 2014
2/5 86% Under the Skin (2014) " It didn't get under my skin, just on my nerves." — Daily Express
Posted Mar 13, 2014
4/5 98% The Rocket (2014) " A simple but charming, affecting and thought-provoking story, rich in atmosphere and local history, and beautifully acted by its young leads." — Daily Express
Posted Mar 13, 2014
2/5 42% 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) " It's like being forced to watch another person's videogame." — Daily Express
Posted Mar 6, 2014
4/5 33% Escape From Planet Earth (2013) " It's a lively, unpretentious adventure that should delight young children and has enough pop culture gags and sly humor to amuse their parents." — Daily Express
Posted Mar 6, 2014
3/5 92% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) " True enchantment will elude those, like me, who remain impervious to Anderson's affected style and whimsical humour." — Daily Express
Posted Mar 6, 2014
3/5 46% The Book Thief (2013) " The performances are admirable and engaging but the story is short on drama and emotional impact." — Daily Express
Posted Feb 27, 2014
3/5 18% Ride Along (2014) " It's fast, loud and silly with some good set-pieces and comic situations." — Daily Express
Posted Feb 27, 2014
4/5 60% Non-Stop (2014) " Neeson isn't going to win an Oscar for this but he's re-affirmed his position as Hollywood's favourite and least likely action star." — Daily Express
Posted Feb 27, 2014
4/5 32% The Monuments Men (2014) " It's no great work of art itself but The Monuments Men is a fun and fitting tribute to some unsung heroes with bags of old-fashioned charm." — Daily Express
Posted Feb 13, 2014
4/5 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) " It's endlessly inventive and a lovely third act twist brings the fun to a surprisingly touching conclusion." — Daily Express
Posted Feb 13, 2014
3/5 51% Cuban Fury (2014) " Frost seems a bit forlorn without his usual sidekick Simon Pegg but there's lively support from Chris O'Dowd, Olivia Colman, Ian McShane and Rory Kinnear." — Daily Express
Posted Feb 13, 2014
3/5 94% Her (2013) " There are some memorable moments ... and Phoenix is very watchable." — Daily Express
Posted Feb 13, 2014
