2/5 49% Cake (2015) " The drugs don't work - but thankfully Aniston does - in this slight but sly portrait of pain-meds hell, which wallows in self-pity when it should be grabbing our sympathy. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Feb 16, 2015
4/5 51% Unbroken (2014) " Jolie's polished memorial to Zamperini's astonishing wartime valour sees O'Connell on star-making form. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Dec 4, 2014
3/5 35% Horrible Bosses 2 (2014) " Less wild, and a bit less winning than last time, this breezy kidnap caper still manages to take care of business. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Nov 25, 2014
3/5 70% They Came Together (2014) " Adorable, acidly funny and absurd in equal measures, this bouncy, gag-packed romcom spoof ain't quite as funny as it thinks. But when Paul meets Amy, they'll have you at 'Hello'... " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 1, 2014
3/5 90% Obvious Child (2014) " Fizzing with neurosis and nervous gags, Jenny Slate's winning odd-couple romance with a gawky Jake Lacy carries the movie over the odd comic misfire. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Aug 25, 2014
4/5 66% Lucy (2014) " Besson is at his balls-out bonkers best in this genre-scrambling, mind-expanding exhilarator. Find it on the biggest screen available and just say 'Yes'... " ‐ Total Film
Posted Aug 22, 2014
2/5 23% Tammy (2014) " Even Melissa McCarthy's exuberant comic capers can't get this road-trip clunker out of first gear. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 6, 2014
3/5 86% Chef (2014) " Chef isn't in Swingers' league, but it's a funny, charming and personal film. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jun 23, 2014
3/5 75% Chinese Puzzle (2014) " It's Duris' engaging breakneck performance, bolstered by energetic turns from Kelly Reilly, Cecile de France and Audrey Tatou, that keeps the motor running. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jun 20, 2014
1/5 9% Grace Of Monaco " More high camp than High Society, Dahan's hilariously ham-fisted biopic seeks high-stakes operatic thrills, but provides shrill melodramatic spills. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jun 2, 2014
4/5 No Score Yet Tirez La Langue, Mademoiselle " Echoes of Eric Rohmer are pleasing rather than irksome, but Ropert has developed a quirky style that's very much her own. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 26, 2014
3/5 48% Rio 2 (2014) " The swooping 3D musical numbers pop with colour - but it's hard to see where this feathered-family franchise could fly next. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Apr 2, 2014
99% 20 Feet From Stardom (2013) " Consciously avoiding a Dreamgirls vibe that suggests their failure was a showbiz tragedy, Neville lets his subjects unabashedly strut their stuff. " ‐ Sight and Sound
Posted Mar 28, 2014
3/5 44% Yves Saint Laurent (2014) " Hardcore fashionistas will doubtless flock to drool over the endless catwalk shows, packed with genuine YSL archive pieces. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Mar 17, 2014
3/5 78% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) " Smartly spoofy rather than sweetly nostalgic, this distractingly star-studded jaunt is fast and funny, but short on emotional punch. But a good time awaits for kids and long-time Muppet-lovers. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Mar 14, 2014
4/5 59% Nymphomaniac: Volume II (2014) " With explicit sex and penetrating philosophy, this erotic odyssey requires close attention and an open mind. " ‐ Total Film

4/5 75% Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014) " With explicit sex and penetrating philosophy, this erotic odyssey requires close attention and an open mind. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Feb 17, 2014
3/5 79% Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014) " Despite top-notch visuals and versatile voice-work from Ty Burrell's doting doggy dad and Alison Janney's monstrous social worker, it lacks the Up-style warmth to be best in show. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Feb 9, 2014
4/5 92% Moonstruck (1987) " This charming comedy show [Cher] at her warm and supple best. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Feb 7, 2014
93% American Hustle (2013) " Like the Abscam con, the film is a convincing confection, so well played that we don't care if it's the real deal or not. " ‐ Sight and Sound
Posted Feb 6, 2014
4/5 58% Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom (2013) " Ambitious in its span and powerful in its recreation of tumultuous times, this is a skilful dramatisation and a worthy celebration. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Dec 31, 2013
2/5 49% Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorf's (2013) " Once-upon-a-time tales about Elizabeth Taylor ordering 200 pairs of mink earmuffs, or Yoko Ono's Christmas Eve $400,000 furs-splurge, can't compensate for a lacklustre storyline about the famously intricate Chrimbo shop windows. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Dec 2, 2013
2/5 49% Parkland (2013) " Despite some affecting moments, the lumbering Parkland feels more like a well-researched magazine feature than an involving drama. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Nov 4, 2013
4/5 57% Walesa " Undeniably hard-going for non-history buffs, but well worth the sweat. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Oct 28, 2013
1/5 8% Diana (2013) " A tasteless, breathless Hello-tastic romance that plays fast and loose with the facts. Any more creepily reverential, and it would be curtseying. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 13, 2013
3/5 92% In a World... (2013) " Witty, wry, and just a little bit scattershot, this good-natured satire takes on cinema's last taboo with small-screen plotting, but big-screen gusto. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 9, 2013
3/5 49% Thanks For Sharing (2013) " What keeps the show on the road are the three male lead performances, which are commendably stripped-down and honest. " ‐ Total Film

3/5 79% Any Day Now (2012) " The actors excel, particularly Levya, whose turn will knock you sideways. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 2, 2013
95% A Hijacking (2013) " As well as the film's almost documentary realism (it's required viewing for shipping personnel), here the brief but telling extras show off Lindholm's dedication to accuracy. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Aug 22, 2013
3/5 54% Lovelace (2013) " Seyfried and Sarsgaard excel in a biopic that focuses on the hard times rather than the hardcore, and leaves you feeling that there's a lot more to say. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Aug 12, 2013
5/5 88% When Harry Met Sally (1989) " What knocks it out of the park is the combination of Ephron's insights and Reiner's matchless comic chops. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 30, 2013
3/5 96% The Deep (2013) " It's all a pretty obvious metaphor for the icy plunge that the Icelandic economy took recently, but is none the worse for it. " ‐ Total Film

3/5 60% The Bling Ring (2013) " A sly true-crime drama. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 8, 2013
3/5 55% The Company You Keep (2013) " Well-crafted, wellintentioned and well, just a tad dull, Redford's radical-chic-road-trip will appeal to the Senior Railcard crowd. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 17, 2013
3/5 82% Something in the Air (2013) " A pitch-perfect period setting can't compensate for the presence of the lithe but terminally listless leads. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 15, 2013
3/5 81% De jueves a domingo (Thursday Till Sunday) " The images of North Chile's lunar landscapes sing - if you can stand the mercilessly long takes. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Mar 22, 2013
4/5 90% Lincoln (2012) " Steven Spielberg's masterly, high-minded recreation of Abraham Lincoln's long-shot battle to get the 13th amendment outlawing slavery through a hostile Congress. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jan 15, 2013
3/5 65% Great Expectations (2013) " Its glossy looks, first-rate playing and famous pedigree will be cat-nip to book-groupies. " ‐ Total Film

2/5 0% The Knot (2012) " Nothing if not predictable. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 28, 2012

Posted Sep 28, 2012
3/5 60% El Bulli: Cooking In Progress (2011) " Legendary chef Ferran Adrià's philosophising about pushing new food frontiers is fascinating, but barely glimpsed, so keen is the film on recording the appliance of science to innocent ingredients. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 16, 2012
3/5 83% Cloclo " Dardenne brothers favourite Jérémie Renier is uncannily good as the tightly wound star, as well as a dead ringer for him. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jun 21, 2012
19% Lay the Favorite (2012) " Frears seems to be in something of a slump, and his giddy, surface-skimming adaptation of Beth Raymer's memoir about her trajectory from stripper to bookie isn't reversing the trend. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jun 13, 2012
3/5 82% Fast Girls (2013) " Noel Clarke, who co-scripted and co-stars, doesn't get any Kidulthood-style grit going, though Crichlow's gutsy performance has you rooting for her. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jun 13, 2012
5/5 93% The Apartment (1960) " No one does the pitchblack flipside of funny like Wilder, and 1960's The Apartment is the darkest he ever made. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jun 13, 2012
3/5 65% All In Good Time " Its stagey mix of East Is East-style father/ son conflict and bouncy bedroom farce is endearing, though a tad stereotyped. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 10, 2012
71% Carnage (2011) " The characters' all-round unpleasantness, and the film's merciless mirth-making with their failings, keeps things buoyantly, bleakly funny. " ‐ Sight and Sound
Posted Feb 7, 2012
3/5 46% Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (2012) " Moving, if heavy-handed, it's an emotional walkabout with real heart. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jan 23, 2012
68% Wuthering Heights (2012) " Andrea Arnold's stark, defiantly naturalistic new version succeeds brilliantly in injecting the shock of the new into this well-thumbed English classic. " ‐ Sight and Sound
Posted Nov 15, 2011
77% The Debt (2011) " The result is a sturdy, often suspenseful piece, but one that delivers less than it promises. " ‐ Sight and Sound
