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

Posted Mar 20, 2014

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 Feb 27, 2014

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 54% 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 6, 2014
4/5 76% Lone Survivor (2014) " The picture may not be in contention for Oscars but it's a first-class modern war film: visceral, exciting and thought-provoking." — Daily Express
Posted Jan 30, 2014
2/5 52% Out of the Furnace (2013) " It's atmospheric but under-plotted and has little to say beyond the obvious." — Daily Express
Posted Jan 30, 2014
3/5 22% That Awkward Moment (2014) " It should be charmless but the cast sparkle and help writer-director Tom Gormican refresh - if not freshen up - the romantic comedy." — Daily Express
Posted Jan 30, 2014
2/5 64% August: Osage County (2013) " Claustrophobic, tiresome and dispiriting." — Daily Express
Posted Jan 23, 2014
3/5 30% Grudge Match (2013) " It's not a travesty but it lacks suspense. You don't care who wins, perhaps because neither Stallone nor DeNiro wanted to play the bad guy." — Daily Express

4/5 95% Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) " Isaac, a talented musician in his own right, inhabits the role so fully and believably you expect Davis to pop out of the screen cap in hand for a few pennies after a song." — Daily Express
Posted Jan 23, 2014
5/5 100% Jerusalem (2013) " Benedict Cumberbatch narrates with effortless authority but it's the personal stories of three attractive young women, present day inhabitants representing the three faiths, which make this a moving and vital production." — Daily Express
Posted Jan 16, 2014

Posted Jan 16, 2014
2/5 38% Delivery Man (2013) " It's not exactly a relatable scenario, the plot is too thin and episodic and there are few laughs." — Daily Express
Posted Jan 9, 2014
5/5 97% 12 Years a Slave (2013) " It does what great cinema should do: takes you on an extraordinary journey and make you feel grateful to be alive." — Daily Express
Posted Jan 9, 2014
4/5 58% Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom (2013) " A handsomely made, absorbing and thought-provoking picture that tackles a huge subject with verve, pace and passion." — Daily Express
Posted Jan 2, 2014

Posted Jan 2, 2014
4/5 67% The Railway Man (2014) " The dual time frame risks creating a disjointed narrative but the filmmakers have struck lucky with Irvine." — Daily Express
Posted Jan 2, 2014
3/5 75% Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) " The scattershot plotting grows wearisome while some jokes are in such poor taste - "laughs" at the expense of Burgundy's casual racism, for example - that you wonder what they were thinking." — Daily Express
Posted Dec 19, 2013

Posted Dec 13, 2013
4/5 75% The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug (2013) " It is confident enough to leave the audience hanging having created enormous momentum and promising an epic confrontation ahead, even if it is slightly frustrating not to have a proper ending." — Daily Express
Posted Dec 11, 2013
3/5 69% Powder Room " Adapted by Rachel Hirons from her own play, it's a fun idea and makes for a vivacious comedy enhanced by strong work from the cast, especially Sheridan Smith as the misbegotten protagonist, Sam, whose life is going nowhere." — Daily Express
Posted Dec 6, 2013
3/5 76% Kill Your Darlings (2013) " It's much better than other attempts to dramatise the lives of the Beat generation like the recent On The Road." — Daily Express
Posted Dec 6, 2013
4/5 92% Nebraska (2013) " Droll and poignant, if a little overextended." — Daily Express
