Posted May 19, 2016
4/5 90% Green Room (2016) "The contrast between the pastoral setting and shocking blood-letting creates lots of breathless tension, putting Green Room in good company with down-and-dirty siege flicks like Assault on Precinct 13 and especially Straw Dogs. " ‐ Radio Times
Posted May 12, 2016
4/5 90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) "The Russos deliver the goods once again and prove to have a safe pair of hands when it comes to pacey, well-choreographed action and accommodating a large starry cast. " ‐ Radio Times
Posted Apr 21, 2016
3/5 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) "Despite the avalanche of set pieces and nods to upcoming Justice League movies, it must be said that Affleck is the class act - he fits his bat suit well and also nails Bruce Wayne, whether as ageing roué or haunted hero. " ‐ Radio Times

Posted Mar 3, 2016
2/5 27% The Benefactor (2016) "Fanning (criminally underused) and James have so little meat to their roles, they end up as ciphers while Gere has a ball as a drug-addicted tycoon on the verge of a nervous breakdown. " ‐ Radio Times
Posted Feb 26, 2016
3/5 13% Breakdown "It's not the most original of premises, but Fairbrass proves a rugged presence and Cosmo is a terrifying villain. " ‐ Radio Times
Posted Jan 15, 2016
5/5 82% The Revenant (2015) "Here's a movie where the elements ooze from the screen, and DiCaprio matches the experience by baring his wounds and his soul in a performance of agonising honesty and emotion. " ‐ Radio Times

4/5 82% On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) "The sixth outing for 007 is a magnificently memorable adventure that sees Bond out to stop the dispersal of a killer virus by a bevy of beauties brainwashed by Telly Savalas's villainous Blofeld. " ‐ Radio Times
Posted Nov 2, 2015
2/5 20% The Vatican Tapes (2015) "Devilish fare like The Exorcist and The Omen that rush to mind. Those classics had thrills and gore galore. This is just too tame to terrify. " ‐ Radio Times

Posted Sep 3, 2015

Posted Aug 20, 2015
3/5 22% Pressure (2015) "It's perfectly watchable, if not quite on a nerve-shredding par with lung-busting thrillers like The Poseidon Adventure, The Abyss or Black Sea. " ‐ Radio Times
Posted Aug 20, 2015
3/5 No Score Yet Captain Webb "It's no big-budget extravaganza but anything that celebrates such historic British endeavour deserves a pat on the back. " ‐ Radio Times
Posted Aug 13, 2015
4/5 94% Best Of Enemies (2015) "Some may argue outside events - antiwar protests, civil unrest - are pushed to the background, but this is a documentary about hugely erudite, larger-than-life personalities. " ‐ Radio Times
Posted Jul 23, 2015

Posted May 8, 2015
4/5 75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) "Although there are some longeurs when Whedon feels bound to plot a pathway to Marvel's next tranche of potential blockbusters, the witty repartee between stars at ease in their superhero skin leavens the odd lull. " ‐ Radio Times
Posted Apr 23, 2015
3/5 70% The Town That Dreaded Sundown (2014) "A straightforward, slickly edited psycho-killer flick with moments of razor-sharp tension and a welcome appearance from Alien star Veronica Cartwright as Timlin's granny. " ‐ Radio Times
Posted Apr 16, 2015
3/5 No Score Yet Sixteen (2013) "An excellent showcase for bright, young talent like Nsengiyumva and Rosie Day, who plays the girlfriend painfully trying to understand what makes her brooding beau tick. " ‐ Radio Times

2/5 60% Draft Day (2014) "In the Costner sporting canon, it's no Bull Durham, Field of Dreams or Tin Cup, but the star is a rock-solid presence and is well supported by a cast chock-full of recognisable faces. " ‐ Radio Times
Posted Oct 3, 2014

Posted Sep 12, 2014

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 Jun 6, 2014
3/5 77% 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
