3/5 65% Lucy (2014) " It's barmy but there are enough enthralling moments in which action clichés (fights, car chases) are turned on their head, to often breathtaking visual effect." — Radio Times
Posted Aug 22, 2014
5/5 94% The Dark Knight (2008) " If Batman Begins was the classy hors d'oeuvre in Christopher Nolan's blockbuster trilogy, then this awesome follow-up is a main course that delivers on all levels." — Radio Times
Posted Aug 20, 2014
2/5 5% Paranoia (2013) " The bland leading man, lack of suspense and tedious panoramic shots of New York create feelings of inertia rather than paranoia." — Radio Times
Posted Jul 23, 2014
3/5 88% Cheap Thrills (2014) " It's a thought-provoking ride, particularly in a post-financial crisis world where a combination of desperation and temptation can make anyone consider doing the unthinkable." — This is London
Posted Jun 6, 2014
3/5 76% Licence To Kill (1989) " It's a watchable adventure boosted by impressive action sequences and a fiery climax with a bone-crunching punch-up. Pity Dalton didn't have another crack at proving his secret-agent credentials." — Radio Times
Posted May 20, 2014
91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) " In the end, it's the cast that makes the movie so compelling and prevents it from being another noisy action-fest." — Radio Times
Posted May 16, 2014
3/5 36% The Quiet Ones (2014) " If you like your scary stories jumpy and bumpy rather than bloody and gory, then this haunting Hammer horror will be right up your (dark) alley." — Radio Times
Posted Apr 11, 2014
3/5 79% Lamb Of God's As The Palaces Burn (2014) " [A] watchable fly-on-the-wall documentary." — Radio Times
Posted Feb 28, 2014
3/5 56% Bounty Killer (2013) " Mad Max and Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! are just a couple of the exploitation flicks that come to mind in this entertaining slice of low-budget mayhem." — Radio Times
Posted Jan 10, 2014
3/5 77% Bad Santa (2003) " With Thornton giving a terrific deadpan performance, this is the perfect antidote to the usual saccharine Christmas confection." — Radio Times
Posted Dec 5, 2013
4/5 65% Thor: The Dark World (2013) " Roll on Thor 3." — Radio Times
Posted Nov 1, 2013
3/5 22% Electric Man (2012) " If you're prepared to overlook its financial shortcomings, then you'll enjoy what is an entertaining and knowing little yarn." — Radio Times
Posted Oct 21, 2013
4/5 70% V/H/S/2 (2013) " Terrifyingly terrific stuff." — Radio Times
Posted Oct 18, 2013
3/5 96% Nosferatu: Phantom der Nacht (Nosferatu the Vampyre) (1979) " There is a haunting if languorous quality that allows his magnificent-looking interpretation to exist on its own terms." — Radio Times
Posted Oct 5, 2013
4/5 88% Hannah Arendt (2013) " The period is subtly rendered and the climactic defence of her ideas before a class of students and critics is a stirring and thought-provoking coda." — Radio Times
Posted Sep 27, 2013
3/5 69% Greedy Lying Bastards (2013) " If ever a documentary needed Michael Moore's ability to debunk the rich and powerful in his inimitable sardonic style, it's here." — Radio Times
Posted Sep 27, 2013
3/5 69% The Wolverine (2013) " A definite improvement on X-Men Origins: Wolverine." — Radio Times
Posted Jul 26, 2013
3/5 68% World War Z (2013) " Fans keen on their zombie yarns sloshing in claret and viscera will probably feel cheated by this curiously bloodless affair ..." — Radio Times
Posted Jun 22, 2013
4/5 100% Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007 (2012) " Casual observers will be fascinated, and even Bond obsessives may find something new to chew on ..." — Radio Times
Posted Oct 7, 2012
3/5 42% A Night in the Woods (2013) " The improvised performances of the cast, the beautiful yet isolated location and dynamic camerawork keep things watchable." — Radio Times
Posted Sep 7, 2012
5/5 92% Marvel's The Avengers (2012) " There's also great chemistry between the principals, who all get their moment in the sun." — Radio Times
Posted May 10, 2012
4/5 26% The Divide (2012) " Gens's skilful direction and the throat-grabbing performances from the cast add to the tension." — Radio Times
Posted Apr 19, 2012
2/5 23% The Decoy Bride (2012) " Folkson's feature debut owes much to It Happened One Night and the Ealing comedies, but without doing justice to either." — Radio Times
Posted Mar 8, 2012
2/5 12% The Darkest Hour (2011) " Sadly lacks the stylish imagination that co-producer Timur Bekmambetov brought to his supernatural epics Night Watch and Day Watch." — Radio Times
Posted Jan 12, 2012
3/5 55% Welcome to the Rileys (2010) " [It] will win no prizes for originality, but it benefits greatly from the subtle performances of the two leads, particularly Leo..." — Radio Times
Posted Nov 20, 2011
3/5 87% Fire in Babylon (2011) " Cricket fans of recent vintage may question whether any side could match the dominance of the Australian team from the late 1990s onwards, but this engrossing documentary may change that view." — Radio Times
Posted May 19, 2011
3/5 77% Thor (2011) " Hopkins brings gravitas rather than ham to his role, Hiddleston's Loki is a villain to look out for and the action is suitably earth-shattering." — Radio Times
Posted Apr 21, 2011
3/5 68% Rubber (2011) " Dupieux's work has more in common with that of David Lynch and Luis Buñuel than your average monster-on-the-rampage flick." — Radio Times
Posted Apr 7, 2011
4/5 96% True Grit (2010) " A riveting ride with a fabulous cast." — Radio Times
Posted Feb 10, 2011
2/5 34% I Spit On Your Grave (2010) " Definitely wince-inducing and not for the squeamish, but ultimately a mechanical exercise in cashing-in." — Radio Times
Posted Jan 20, 2011
3/5 67% In Our Name " Welsh shows that the domestic war zone can sometimes be as frightening, tense and violent as the real one." — Radio Times
Posted Dec 9, 2010
3/5 83% On Tour (Tournée) (2010) " Amalric won the best director prize at Cannes with this movie. He certainly demonstrates he's equally adept in front and behind the camera..." — Radio Times
Posted Dec 9, 2010
3/5 45% Confucius (2010) " Beautifully shot (by Crouching Tiger cameraman Peter Pau) and contains a magnetic central performance from the ever-charismatic Chow." — Radio Times
Posted Sep 23, 2010
5/5 100% The Leopard (1963) " Visconti died in 1976, but Rotunno went on to supervise the film's restoration in the 1990s and this new print can now be seen in all its sumptuous widescreen glory." — Radio Times
Posted Aug 27, 2010
3/5 88% White Material (2010) " Huppert is a magnetic presence in a film that sometimes conjures up the atmosphere of Walkabout or Aguirre, Wrath of God, as primal, almost elemental forces seem to bear down upon its protagonists." — Radio Times
Posted Jul 8, 2010
3/5 92% Vincere (2010) " Timi is a powerful presence and Mezzogiorno is mesmerising as she moves from obsessive lover to scorned mother, doomed to exile from her son in various rural asylums." — Radio Times
Posted May 13, 2010
2/5 50% A Boy Called Dad (2009) " There's just not enough substance to this tale of two fathers. It's a pity, as the leads both give fine performances." — Radio Times
Posted Apr 29, 2010
2/5 19% Motherhood (2009) " It's a well-meaning movie, but the attempts to provide amusing insights into the everyday life of a full-time mum are hamstrung by the 24-hour time frame." — Radio Times
Posted Mar 5, 2010
2/5 14% Blind Revenge (2012) " The cat-and-mouse plot fizzles out long before its lacklustre finale, which is a pity as Conti is watchable in an all-too-rare starring role." — Radio Times
Posted Feb 19, 2010
2/5 10% Malice in Wonderland (2010) " Alice's adventures lose something in their contemporary translation, and there is very little to care about. It's nicely shot, though, in the style of a 1980s music video." — Radio Times
