2/5 19% Ratchet & Clank (2016) "It gets off to a strong start, with some odd humour and meta charm but as that dissipates it turns into a formulaic snooze fest. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Apr 28, 2016
2/5 29% Friend Request "The serious issues the film is exploring get pushed to the wayside in favour of shoehorning in gimmicky frights. " ‐ The List

Posted Apr 11, 2016
1/5 7% Martyrs (2016) "It's ineptly directed and entirely misses the point of what Laugier was trying to achieve. " ‐ The List
Posted Mar 29, 2016
4/5 76% The Brand New Testament "Told from a bright-eyed childlike perspective through Ea's narration, this story of human connection and empathy takes on an animated and lively form that entertains and enlightens in equal measure. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Mar 25, 2016

Posted Mar 15, 2016
3/5 82% The Here After (Efterskalv) "This is a promising debut that nevertheless suffers a little from its withholding of passion until the final throes, and thus feels a tad too premeditated and unnatural by design. " ‐ The List
Posted Mar 7, 2016
4/5 85% Goodnight Mommy (2015) "Every inch of the film crackles with the grim intensity of a funeral pyre and there's a strong sense of foreboding, while both the twins turn in devilishly good performances. " ‐ The List
Posted Feb 29, 2016
3/5 46% The Other Side of the Door (2016) "Whilst you're in the midst of its dark embrace it's reliably creepy. " ‐ The List
Posted Feb 29, 2016
2/5 37% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) "Essentially a base-level comedy featuring one of Baron Cohen's most forgettable comedic characters. " ‐ The List
Posted Feb 25, 2016
2/5 9% The Forest (2016) "Audiences will certainly want to think twice before entering these woods, but mainly because we've seen it all before. " ‐ The List
Posted Feb 22, 2016
2/5 47% Freeheld (2015) "Why does Michael Shannon get the best written part in a lesbian drama? " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Feb 19, 2016
4/5 95% The Survivalist "It speaks volumes through its silence and lingers in the memory for a long while after watching. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Feb 18, 2016
3/5 49% How To Be Single (2016) "There's a sweet message about friendship and self-love at the centre of it. " ‐ The List
Posted Feb 15, 2016
4/5 89% Bone Tomahawk (2015) "Zahler's impressive directorial debut delivers razor-sharp tension that recalls the work of author Jack Ketchum. " ‐ The List
Posted Feb 15, 2016
48% Capture the Flag (2016) "There is an inkling of a better film here but something appears to have got lost in translation, making this quite the forgettable voyage. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Feb 5, 2016
3/5 43% One & Two (2015) "Strong performances across the board render this a frequently involving and moving experience, with the endearing chemistry between the screen siblings making their bond wholly believable. " ‐ The List
Posted Jan 25, 2016
5/5 94% Creed (2015) "From the perfectly judged poignancy to the beautifully choreographed and brutal bouts, Creed certainly goes the distance. " ‐ The List
Posted Jan 11, 2016
3/5 81% Man Up (2015) "[Lake Bell and Simon Pegg] make for an amiable pairing in a hugely enjoyable and fast-paced comedy. " ‐ The Arts Desk
Posted Jan 1, 2016
2/5 32% Daddy's Home (2015) "Daddy's Home essentially takes one joke and spreads it very thinly over its 96-minute runtime. It may occasionally make you chuckle, but it is also entirely forgettable. " ‐ The List
Posted Dec 21, 2015
4/5 66% Krampus (2015) "Dougherty harks back to the 80s and early 90s with gleeful abandon, lovingly paying homage to Joe Dante, Steven Spielberg and John Hughes along the way and it's a whole heap of bloody fun. " ‐ The List
Posted Dec 4, 2015
3/5 63% Attack on Titan Part 1 (Shingeki no kyojin: Attack on Titan) (2015) "With the focus on action the character development is sorely underwritten with a whole army of young warriors being shoddily introduced meaning their eventual deaths carry little emotional weight but it sure is mesmerising watching the mayhem unfold. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Dec 1, 2015
4/5 94% Min lilla syster (My Skinny Sister) "If Lenken's script occasionally veers into broad-strokes TV territory My Skinny Sister still marks her out as a promising new filmmaker. " ‐ The List
Posted Nov 23, 2015
4/5 97% Tangerine (2015) "A dazzling bauble of melodrama and fast paced merriment. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Nov 12, 2015
3/5 44% Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015) "The writing team are focused on the juvenile, with gross-out gags galore, and the effects crew have a field day with some inventive blood spattering. " ‐ The List
Posted Nov 3, 2015
3/5 71% He Named Me Malala (2015) "Though Guggenheim does lose focus in the latter half of the film, with it seeming a little rushed, for the most part he produces a rousing portrait of a young woman's courageous stand. " ‐ The List
Posted Nov 3, 2015
2/5 16% The Last Witch Hunter (2015) "Diesel fails to convince in his role. His delivery is mostly flat and rarely do any of the one-liners hit their mark. It's a story of sorcery seriously lacking in cinematic magic. " ‐ The List
Posted Oct 20, 2015
2/5 26% Pan (2015) "For all its eye-catching design, however, Pan sorely lacks a much-needed sense of wonderment, and by focusing its efforts on the outlandish it forgets to be playful. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Oct 16, 2015
4/5 90% The Witch (2016) "This is Robert Eggers' first feature and it's a knockout in terms of visual flair and dread-filled potency. " ‐ The List
Posted Oct 13, 2015
4/5 93% Room (2015) "A heartbreaking, profound and tremblingly taut experience, that plays almost as an upside down version of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland ... " ‐ The List
Posted Oct 9, 2015
3/5 60% The Intern (2015) "Exploring the burgeoning bond between a 70-year-old widower and a young businesswoman allows for some delightful and amusing observations about our ever-changing world. " ‐ The List
Posted Sep 28, 2015

Posted Sep 25, 2015
2/5 32% Solace (2016) "Solace is mildly entertaining in bursts ... but clichés thwart it for the most part and the final twist can be seen coming from a mile off. " ‐ The List
Posted Sep 21, 2015
2/5 No Score Yet Dartmoor Killing "Dartmoor Killing is not without merit, but the shallow handling of serious issues including the repression of a tragic incident mars it somewhat. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Sep 18, 2015
3/5 100% Containment (2015) "Strong attention to detail and a disquieting score set this debut feature apart, but some of the characters' motivations aren't entirely convincing. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Sep 11, 2015
1/5 64% The Visit (2015) "The Visit is crass and predictable, and nearly as bad as the extremely dire The Happening. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Sep 11, 2015
4/5 96% The Second Mother (Que Horas Ela Volta?) (2015) "The Second Mother strikes a passionate moral chord that also connects with conversations about the importance of achieving social change through cross-generational education. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Sep 3, 2015
3/5 43% American Ultra (2015) "Although it sometimes veers into off-putting caricature, American Ultra revels in the amusing bewilderment that comes when a couple of star-crossed slackers are thrust into a violent situation, with the dry one-liners proving very quotable. " ‐ The List
Posted Aug 31, 2015
2/5 33% Demonic (2014) "Despite the screenplay's crafty curve-balls there's still a distinct sense of déjà vu as each thread is drawn together, while an unconvincing police slip-up is inserted to help drag the story out. " ‐ The List
Posted Aug 30, 2015
3/5 41% We Are Your Friends (2015) "Despite it following a corny narrative and featuring some odd directorial decisions, especially in the final throes, We Are Your Friends is charmingly sincere ... " ‐ The List
Posted Aug 26, 2015
2/5 56% Paper Towns (2015) "Another bittersweet film about boys growing up and demystifying women that disappointingly short-changes its female characters. " ‐ The List
Posted Aug 17, 2015
3/5 51% Gemma Bovery (2015) "A light and fluffy lampooning of both the middle classes and the male gaze, featuring a great performance from the ever-charming Gemma Arterton in the title role. " ‐ The List
Posted Aug 17, 2015
3/5 85% Trainwreck (2015) "Though Trainwreck struggles with its structure - occasionally feeling like a sketch show - it's certainly honest, though perhaps to a fault. " ‐ The List
Posted Aug 10, 2015
2/5 9% The Cobbler (2015) "A strange departure into slapstick renders any genuine sentiment null and void and the balance between comedy and drama is just never properly gaged. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Aug 6, 2015
2/5 35% Max (2015) "An overly sentimental, ham-fisted family drama ... " ‐ The List
Posted Aug 3, 2015
10/10 87% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) "Intense action and emotion make for gripping viewing and along with a dash of playfulness that occasionally lifts the dark mood it feels like the comic book hero has been rightly adapted for our times. " ‐ Starburst
Posted Aug 1, 2015
2/5 19% Self/less (2015) "Approaches high-concept sci-fi with a serious-mind, but also shoe-horns in banal moments of broad entertainment, making it a difficult pill to swallow. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Jul 21, 2015
4/5 91% The Lobster (2016) "The Lobster is as weird and wonderful as it sounds and will make you think twice before asking the dreaded question, 'Are you still single?' " ‐ The List
Posted Jul 20, 2015
6/10 70% The Wolverine (2013) "There's lots of fun to be had with a train-top fight, allowing Wolverine to show off those adamantium claws, and snow-set Ninja battles, but the final sequence feels messy. " ‐ Starburst
