2/5 18% Pixels (2015) "Adam Sandler seems to just be coasting whatever is left of his career, resigned to the fact that his game was over long ago. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Jul 31, 2015
5/5 98% Inside Out (2015) "It is the sweetest, saddest, happiest, powerful-est, imaginative-est and most important-est film of Pixar's output to date. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Jul 26, 2015
4/5 79% Ant-Man (2015) "It all adds up to a film that is just so much brilliant funtimes. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Jul 8, 2015
2/5 46% Ted 2 (2015) ""Has a lower gag rate and more punchline misses than its predecessor. In short, it's a film that just reeks of having no real purpose." " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Jul 3, 2015
5/5 90% Love & Mercy (2015) "Provides proof that Brian Wilson really wasn't made for those times. Or, indeed, these. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Jun 26, 2015
4/5 59% Spooks: The Greater Good "This tense, taut and intelligently plotted British thriller makes more generic instalments in the genre - like Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit - seem like a dumb jock movie. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Apr 29, 2015
5/5 74% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) "It is likely that this is the best Avengers movie that we'll ever see. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Apr 21, 2015
3/5 100% Dark Horse (2015) "The nags-to-riches journey of Dream Alliance becoming a short-lived racing favourite doesn't exactly set the world alight, but it makes for some triumphant moments. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Apr 17, 2015
4/5 85% John Wick (2014) "A compact, punchy film without an ounce of flab on it ... It's just a short, sharp, bullet-driven bulldozer of a movie that snaps necks and blows out brains. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Apr 15, 2015
1/5 29% Lost River (2015) "It comes across like the college coursework of a film student trying to convince the girl of his dreams that he is 'deep' and that he 'gets stuff'. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Apr 8, 2015
3/5 25% Jupiter Ascending (2015) "This film doesn't live up to its potential to be this year's great big stupid movie joke because, well, it's all rather enjoyable. Intentionally enjoyable. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Feb 6, 2015
2/5 81% Testament Of Youth (2015) "While the film itself is well-crafted and it contains decent performances, from a film-viewing perspective, the story is deeply flawed. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Jan 17, 2015
5/5 92% Birdman (2014) "We already have the best movie of 2015. I mean, I haven't looked at the schedule for the upcoming year but there's probably not much else coming out, right? " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Jan 2, 2015
3/5 43% The Guvnors "Sadly, the film gets mired in muddied morals and needless flashbacks, spending too long on backstory before finally delivering its brutal third act. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Aug 18, 2014
4/5 85% 22 Jump Street (2014) "A film that, despite deliberately following its predecessor's formula exactly, feels even more fresh and just as ludicrously funny. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Jun 4, 2014
2/5 33% A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) "It's a tired opinion, but Seth MacFarlane really does only appeal to fans of Seth MacFarlane... of which, I imagine the number one fan is Seth MacFarlane. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted May 29, 2014
4/5 91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) "It's a film that serves as a prequel, a sequel and a bridge between the two. And, most of all, it serves as a giant "f ... you" to X-Men: The Last Stand. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted May 13, 2014
4/5 73% Neighbors (2014) ""There's never any shortage of chuckles, guffaws and laughing LOLs out loud. I think, at one point, I even chortled. And I don't chortle lightly." " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted May 1, 2014
3/5 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) "Exactly what we expect from Marvel now and, as such, this is the first film in its catalogue that doesn't feel particularly fresh or exciting. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Mar 21, 2014
4/5 22% Need For Speed (2014) "Exposition is light, action is quick, stunt-driving is awesome ... this film really does convince that there is a... uh... requirement for haste. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Mar 9, 2014
3/5 49% RoboCop (2014) "A hybrid creation that isn't quite sure which it really is - an original entity or a manufactured automaton. Very much like... well, you get the analogy. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Feb 6, 2014
4/5 50% The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013) "It's hard to hold a grudge ... when the film delivers such a triumphant story filled with just as much hilarity as wonder. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Dec 27, 2013
2/5 43% The Call (2013) "It seems at odds with itself thanks to a generous helping of tropes from two distinctly different genres: fast-paced action thriller and creepy serial killer horror. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Nov 20, 2013
4/5 93% Captain Phillips (2013) "It spends as much time on true-to-life protocols as thrills and spills. And it's a film in which Tom Hanks sweats unattractively from his man-boobs. Talk about uncompromising " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Nov 20, 2013
3/5 70% The Wolverine (2013) "You'll be left wishing that it was a fun comic-book movie with some emotional weight, rather than a serious character study with a few exciting scenes. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Jul 18, 2013
4/5 89% The World's End (2013) "The film is as funny and original as Wright and Pegg's previous efforts, even if time and familiarity with the pair's comedy stylings has rendered it not quite as fresh. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

Posted May 24, 2013
3/5 87% Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) "It goes quickly, it goes loudly and it goes spectacularly. The only problem is that it never seems to live up to the franchise's original mission statement and go boldly " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted May 4, 2013
4/5 79% Iron Man 3 (2013) "A summer blockbuster that, in this era of saturating trailers and set-piece spoiling TV spots, genuinely takes you by surprise. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Apr 24, 2013
4/5 62% Evil Dead (2013) "This could easily have been the best demon possession film released in decades. Instead it is just a very effective, still-terrifying, evil retread. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Apr 19, 2013
4/5 48% Olympus Has Fallen (2013) "Once the film stops taking itself too seriously and gives in to over-the-top entertainment, it becomes a vastly superior movie - albeit one with some head-shakingly stupid moments. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Apr 16, 2013

4/5 59% Oz the Great and Powerful (2013) "It may not have much courage in its adherence to the 1939 classic, [but] the film still manages to find both a brain and heart somewhere along the way. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Mar 1, 2013
4/5 86% Manborg (2013) "Manborg works first and foremost by being genuinely, legitimately funny. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Feb 24, 2013
2/5 62% Hitchcock (2012) "All we mostly get to see is the sad, silent contemplation of an old, weary, prosthetically constructed man " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Feb 24, 2013
4/5 86% Wreck-it Ralph (2012) "A very clever, delightfully funny and visually stunning Disney film. And yet we end up watching it having already seen its potential to be something much more enticing. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Feb 24, 2013
3/5 36% Hyde Park on Hudson (2012) "Even Murray, who never fails to be the most watchable actor in any film, can't prevent Hyde Park On Hudson from being too insipid. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Feb 24, 2013
4/5 100% Victim (1961) "The intensity of Bogarde's performance, not least where he confesses to wife Sylvia Syms his homosexual desires, transcends the film's well-intentioned cautiousness. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Feb 6, 2013

Posted Jan 28, 2013
4/5 31% Gangster Squad (2013) "It's basically the movie adaptation of the trashy comic-book adaptation of The Untouchables. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Jan 11, 2013
4/5 81% Pitch Perfect (2012) "It is both refreshingly funny and teen-panderingly cheesy. Ladies and gentlemen ... it seems we have here what all the young kids these days refer to as a 'mash-up'. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Dec 19, 2012
4/5 62% Jack Reacher (2012) "While the film does revel in eye-rolling cliché ... there is one important difference that makes up for all of it: it doesn't take itself too seriously. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Dec 11, 2012
