3/5 76% Goosebumps (2015) "Goosebumps is a surprisingly funny adaptation of the RL Stine children's monster-book series, with Jack Black playing the ghoulish writer and Dylan Minnette the boy next door. " ‐ Times [UK]
Posted Feb 4, 2016
3/5 12% Wild Orchid (2002) "Less a classic and more a curiosity, Wild Orchid is a cult piece of Eighties erotica that was panned at the time but now is weirdly fascinating. " ‐ Times [UK]
Posted Feb 4, 2016
4/5 79% Hail, Caesar! (2016) "Hail, Caesar! is a playful romp through Hollywood's golden studio age when egos and cigars were vast and backlots were filled with divas, communists and salacious gossip. " ‐ Times [UK]
Posted Feb 4, 2016
4/5 100% The Palm Beach Story (1942) "In many ways this screwball comedy is a precursor to Some Like It Hot, but with a silkier wit and some gorgeous fashions. " ‐ Times [UK]
Posted Jan 28, 2016
0/5 9% Dirty Grandpa (2016) "Be ashamed, Robert De Niro, be deeply ashamed of every scene of Dirty Grandpa, a sleazy comedy spurting unfunny jokes from a lost time. " ‐ Times [UK]

Posted Jan 1, 2016
4/5 94% Contempt (1964) "This is one of the French new wave master's seminal films, a satire on the making of a Hollywood-style movie that exploits Bardot's femme fatale Camille with no less aplomb than Hollywood itself. " ‐ Times [UK]
Posted Jan 1, 2016
4/5 63% Sleeping with Other People (2015) "Sleeping With Other People is an updated -- and raunchier -- take on the When Harry Met Sally rom-com premise: can a man and a woman ever be best friends, or will there always be just a troublesome frisson of attraction? " ‐ Times [UK]

Posted Jan 1, 2016
3/5 87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) "Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie will serve young children well as a Christmas outing, but whether it serves the child that remains in all of us early Peanuts fans is another question. " ‐ Times [UK]
Posted Dec 17, 2015
2/5 0% Sparks and Embers "Although there is amusing sexual tension between French corporate cost-cutter Eloise (Annelise Hesme) and sacked music company marketer Tom (Kris Marshall, who was in Love, Actually long ago), there are no surprises here. " ‐ Times [UK]
Posted Dec 17, 2015
5/5 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) "This seventh movie is a humongous piece of cinema -- all that a sequel should be and more: a nostalgic homage to the 1977 original, coupled with intergalactic, warp-speed, panoramic blockbuster action, and a new heroine in the form of Daisy Ridley's Rey. " ‐ Times [UK]
Posted Dec 15, 2015
3/5 60% Joy (2015) "The result is entertaining, although the stakes are rather low. " ‐ Times [UK]
Posted Dec 10, 2015
4/5 100% Sherpa (2015) "The documentary maker Jennifer Peedom went to explore the Sherpas' world and village life -- and their exploitation, which means they may be paid $5,000 for a summer's work, while visitors pay $75,000 for a single death-defying trip. " ‐ Times [UK]
Posted Dec 10, 2015

3/5 94% The Forbidden Room (2015) "The Forbidden Room is a fun ride for cineastes and was much fêted at festivals. Whether it will appeal to mainstream taste with its insane mash-up of B movie-style parody, silent-movie intertitles and jungle vampires is anyone's guess. " ‐ Times [UK]
Posted Dec 10, 2015
4/5 91% Grandma (2015) "In Grandma, Lily Tomlin is entertainingly and terrifyingly eccentric as a ballbreaker of a grandmother. " ‐ Times [UK]

Posted Dec 3, 2015
2/5 78% Future Shock! The Story of 2000AD "While the 2000AD British "brotherhood" put staid American efforts such as Superman in the shade, this film is mostly a series of middle-aged talking heads nostalgically discussing a past that we barely glimpse. " ‐ Times [UK]
Posted Dec 3, 2015

Posted Dec 1, 2015
5/5 93% Carol (2015) "An exquisite film by Todd Haynes that delves into the lost arts and crafts of a raised eyebrow, a smouldering glance, a sharp intake of breath, a brush of a coral-polished fingernail, a pulse of expensive scent and looks that could thrill. " ‐ Times [UK]
Posted Dec 1, 2015
2/5 78% Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans (2015) "Beginning with its punning title, Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans proves to be a clunky film about the actor's obsession with motor racing, and his incredibly expensive attempt to make Le Mans. " ‐ Times [UK]

Posted Nov 19, 2015
4/5 100% Mr Calzaghe "Mr Calzaghe is the antidote to the Rocky-style comeback trajectory of every boxing movie. " ‐ Times [UK]
