3/5 73% Hyena (2015) " It's well performed and seedily atmospheric but there's no one to root for and the story, like the characters, becomes a bit hysterical. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Apr 27, 2015
3/5 63% Son of a Gun (2015) " The tension comes and goes and crime thriller cliches are dutifully observed (call it a B+ movie), but writer-director Julius Avery displays a muscular touch behind the camera. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Apr 13, 2015
5/5 98% The Artist (2011) " They really don't make them like this any more. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Feb 17, 2015
5/5 79% The Theory of Everything (2014) " The Theory Of Everything reveals the man behind the icon: courageous, mischievous, funny but also difficult and selfish. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Jan 8, 2015
4/5 93% Birdman (2014) " Despite its pretensions to be something more, the picture is most entertaining as a backstage farce. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Jan 8, 2015
4/5 93% Enchanted (2007) " The result is a fresh, feel-good crowd-pleaser that pokes affectionate fun at fairytale conventions while remaining true to their spirit. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Dec 10, 2014
3/5 86% Hellboy II: The Golden Army (Hellboy 2) (2008) " [The film] will delight fans of the original comic-book adaptation, offering up as it does a much bigger spectacle with more wit and an eye-popping gallery of exotic creatures, while leaving non-enthusiasts like me admiring but uninvolved. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Dec 8, 2014
4/5 98% Mr. Turner (2014) " How could such a delicate and visionary artist - a genius - be such a grunting warthog of a man? " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Oct 31, 2014
3/5 79% What We Did on Our Holiday (2015) " It's thought-provoking and unexpected, if not something to write home about in a hurry. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Sep 25, 2014
2/5 61% The Equalizer (2014) " Not since Rambo attempted to find peace in a Buddhist temple in Thailand in Rambo 3 has a man's efforts to forswear violence proved so abortive as in The Equalizer with Denzel Washington. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Sep 25, 2014
3/5 96% Ida (2014) " It's an intriguing story, crisply told, but the austere, remote style makes it hard to engage emotionally. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Sep 25, 2014
2/5 62% Maps to the Stars (2015) " A significant disappointment, more grim family saga about a literally incestuous show business family than lively, entertaining or even vaguely amusing comedy. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Sep 25, 2014
3/5 85% Night Moves (2014) " A suspenseful and thought-proving thriller ... " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Aug 28, 2014
59% 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 18% 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 60% 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 85% 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 86% 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 41% 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 82% 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 74% 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 19% 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 28% 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 23% 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 81% 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 91% 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 40% 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

Posted Apr 3, 2014
3/5 93% 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 78% 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 34% 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
