4/5 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation might have its hi-tech gadgets, but it's a pleasingly old-fashioned affair. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 24, 2015
5/5 98% Inside Out (2015) "Fittingly for a movie set inside someone's head, Pixar's 15th feature is a fireworks display of fizzing ideas and bursts of imagination. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 20, 2015
5/5 91% Dear White People (2014) "This is high-altitude satire that dares to press hot buttons while targeting and empathising with all, black and white. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 6, 2015
4/5 81% Man Up "Not up there with key US influences Annie Hall, When Harry Met Sally and Jerry Maguire, but a romcom Brits can be proud of. Make a date of it. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 25, 2015
3/5 78% Danny Collins (2015) "Hits all the routine beats but is plenty entertaining, with Pacino rediscovering his enviable pizazz to headline a quality ensemble. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 25, 2015
4/5 89% Spring (2015) "It's rare indeed to find a modern horror film more interested in characters than plot or body count, and the naturalistic storytelling pays dividends. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 18, 2015
5/5 98% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "In the battle of the 2015 behemoths, the maxed-out madness of Mad Max: Fury Road sets an extraordinarily high bar - then pole-vaults clean over it and smashes the entire rig to smithereens. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 11, 2015
3/5 81% A Royal Night Out "Jarrold struggles to sweep things along with quite enough vigour - budget constraints crowd the edge of the frame - but Gadon is intoxicating as Elizabeth. A star is born. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 11, 2015
3/5 74% Big Game (2015) "Watch Big Game with a straight face and it's ridiculous; view it as tongue-in-cheek (and Rare Exports proved that Helander has a wicked sense of humour) and, if not sublime, it's certainly entertaining. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 7, 2015
4/5 80% The Falling (2015) "Ambiguity is The Falling's currency, and it's all the richer for it. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Apr 20, 2015
4/5 96% Wild Tales (2015) "Of the six tales on offer, four are excellent and one decent - a high strike rate for a compilation. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Mar 24, 2015
4/5 81% Furious 7 (2015) "So fast, furious, ginormous, crazed, maxed-out and heart-on-sleeve emotional is this gloriously ludicrous instalment that it's impossible to see where an eighth could go. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Mar 24, 2015
4/5 100% The Tale of the Princess Kaguya (2014) "Over-long, but a work of great artistry and emotion. As the woodcutter says upon finding our heroine: "A gift from heaven". " ‐ Total Film
Posted Mar 19, 2015
3/5 55% White Bird in a Blizzard (2014) "Misses the energy and vitality of Gregg Araki's best work, but there's more going on here than immediately meets the eye. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Mar 2, 2015
4/5 91% White God (2015) "Who let the dogs out? This is Homeward Bound: The Incredibly Harrowing Journey ... " ‐ Total Film
Posted Feb 23, 2015
4/5 34% Blackhat (2015) "It's no Heat but the niggles are easily forgiven given the virtuosity on show and the mood oozing from every frame. No one shoots faces, architecture and gunfights like Mann. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Feb 16, 2015
3/5 63% Son of a Gun (2015) "Never sure if it wants to be a hard-edged character drama or pacy action-thriller, Son Of A Gun has plenty to admire between the tonal wobbles. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jan 26, 2015
3/5 46% The Gambler (2014) "Wahlberg finds his most interesting role since The Departed in a film that's heavy on atmosphere and suspense but shy of a full deck when it comes to characterisation. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jan 19, 2015
3/5 71% Into the Woods (2014) "Family entertainment with death, limb-lopping and other horrors. If you go Into The Woods today, you'll be surprised how faithful this is to the dark stage musical. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jan 6, 2015
5/5 92% Birdman (2014) "Frenetic, splenetic and dizzyingly inventive. " ‐ Total Film

Posted Dec 4, 2014
4/5 89% The Drop (2014) "A sombre, '70s-flavoured crime drama with strong, interior performances from Hardy, Gandolfini and Rapace. Feel the (slow)burn. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Nov 10, 2014
4/5 87% The Skeleton Twins (2014) "Wiig and Hader give winning, finely nuanced turns in a film that deftly mixes light and dark. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Nov 3, 2014
4/5 95% Nightcrawler (2014) "Switch off that television and head out to the cinema: Gyllenhaal is sensational headlining a pitch-black satire with its finger on the pulse. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Oct 27, 2014
4/5 45% Life After Beth (2014) "A romantic-comedy to die for... It's dead funny... etc., etc. DeHaan and Plaza ace it in a sure-footed zombie movie more interested in heart than braaaaains. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 30, 2014
3/5 80% Wilde Salomé (2013) "Wilde Salomé is passionate and absorbing, though the insertion of lengthy clips from the film might irk viewers who've just watched it. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 28, 2014
5/5 100% Salvatore Giuliano (1962) "The filmmaking is exemplary, the veracity palpable, as Rosi paints a complex portrait of Sicilian society. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 28, 2014
3/5 61% The Equalizer (2014) "Washington undoubtedly has the game - he's mesmerising here, however much the movie slides out from under him - but the material has a long way to go to be his equal. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 28, 2014
4/5 88% Gone Girl (2014) "Doesn't have the heft of Zodiac or the verve of Se7en but Gone Girl is a masterful adaptation and a superior crime-thriller. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 22, 2014
4/5 89% The Firemen's Ball (1968) "A socio-political satire that thrums with warmth and spontaneity, yet so enraged Communist authorities it was banned. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 19, 2014
3/5 47% All Cheerleaders Die (2014) "Young, far-from-dumb and full of comeuppances. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 8, 2014
3/5 36% Before I Go to Sleep (2014) "A handsome thriller, absorbing for its duration and with a couple of neat rug-pulls. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 1, 2014
5/5 100% Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari. (The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari) (1920) "Other areas of innovation and influence are often overstated, but its silent scream still registers. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Aug 25, 2014
3/5 33% The Expendables 3 (2014) "More sure-footed than Expendables 1 and 2, and considerably more pumped up - it pauses for neither breath nor a change of colostomy bag. Dumb fun. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Aug 5, 2014
4/5 78% Moebius (2014) "Among the blood, sweat and (ahem) salty tears are musings on desire, family and emasculation, but this is Kim at his most mischievous, the laughs drowning all. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Aug 4, 2014
3/5 73% The German Doctor (2014) "Well-made and well-acted, Wakolda is let down by rampant contrivances and on-the-nose metaphors. " ‐ Total Film

Posted Aug 4, 2014
5/5 93% The Deer Hunter (1978) "It's an American tragedy indebted to Russian literature, alive with detail and ritual and embedding viewers in the souls of men, the heart of a community and the spilled guts of a nation. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 28, 2014
60% Hercules (2014) "By the beard of Zeus! Brett Ratner delivers fast, fun thrills to score a sound victory over Renny Harlin's laborious The Legend Of Hercules. " ‐ Total Film

Posted Jun 4, 2014
4/5 90% Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014) "There's imagination, spectacle and thrills to spare. There's a freshness here too that comes not only from the structure, but from Edge Of Tomorrow being a shiny new property in this cyclical age of sequels, prequels and spin-offs " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 26, 2014
4/5 91% Venus in Fur (2014) "It's theatrical but increasingly fascinating as an arrogant director (Mathieu Amalric) auditions an actress (Emmanuelle Seigner) for a stage version of the titular novel about sexual submission. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 26, 2014
65% The Rover (2014) "Between this and his work for David Cronenberg, Pattinson is suggesting his career post-Twilight will sparkle like Edward Cullen's skin. Michod, meanwhile, confirms he's a filmmaker of considerable talents. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 21, 2014
98% Mr. Turner (2014) "Leigh makes no judgements on his protagonist but instead chooses to place before us a man both ordinary and extraordinary as he shuffles about his daily business. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 15, 2014
9% Grace Of Monaco "Frustratingly superficial and speckled with cod-psychology and unintentional humour. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 14, 2014
4/5 100% Next Goal Wins (2014) "A triumph-of-the-underdog documentary so amusing and inspirational you'll have to Google events to ensure it's not a mockumentary. Back of the net. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 5, 2014
2/5 26% Brick Mansions (2014) "Favouring vitality over originality, this needless remake of District 13 comes with fleet-footed sequences but plenty of stumbles, and strains far too hard to be 'cool'. " ‐ Total Film
