3/5 58% Eisenstein In Guanajuato (2016) "Peter Greenaway's latest, Eisenstein in Guanajuato, may not be up everyone's street, and even fans may find the self-indulgent longueurs towards the end of the film too much. Still, the premise is interesting. " ‐ Times (UK)

2/5 16% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) "What a very fine cast T he Huntsman: Winter's War is proffering: Jessica Chastain, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth and Emily Blunt. And what a fine mess the first-time director of this fairytale prequel makes as he squanders their talents. " ‐ Times (UK)
Posted Apr 7, 2016
3/5 71% Calamity Jane (1953) "As a pistol-packin' cowgirl in fringed leather trousers, Day is terrific, an object of athletic awe and irrepressible good cheer. " ‐ Times (UK)

Posted Mar 24, 2016
2/5 28% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) "This superhero-smorgasbord directed by Zack Snyder melts into an electric soup of CGI.

Posted Mar 18, 2016
2/5 82% The Here After (Efterskalv) "The writer-director Magnus von Horn keeps the nature of John's crime a secret from the audience for most of the film, which becomes an increasingly desperate and unlikely device. " ‐ Times (UK)

Posted Feb 25, 2016
3/5 37% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) "Sometimes a scene leaves your critical faculties floundering, and so it was in Grimsby as Sacha Baron Cohen and Mark Strong retreated into an elephant's vagina to escape machine-gunning assassins. " ‐ Times (UK)
Posted Feb 25, 2016
91% To Kill A Mockingbird (1962) "Peck's performance, in tortoiseshell glasses and a cream linen suit, is mesmerizing and serious. " ‐ Times (UK)

Posted Feb 11, 2016
2/5 24% Zoolander 2 (2016) "One might hope that the long-awaited sequel Zoolander 2 would be a biting, lunatic satire on the present selfie-regarding fashion industry. Instead, poor Stiller turns out to be An Actor Who Can't Direct So Good. " ‐ Times (UK)
Posted Feb 11, 2016
