4/5 86% The Conjuring (2013) " A strong cast and an atmosphere of real dread mean that despite a catalogue of immediately recognisable ghost devices, The Conjuring amounts to more than the sum of its scary parts." — Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 16, 2013
3/5 30% Hammer Of The Gods (2013) " A bloody-knuckled fightfest, back-dropped by the beautiful Welsh countryside, this defies its budget to bring a little epic to Viking Britain." — Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 25, 2013
3/5 29% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) " A more modest success than the first Kick-Ass, but still of-a-piece with its scurrilous predecessor. Nobody flies a jet-pack up a skyscraper this time, but Kick-Ass 2 still has its share of over-the-top action, and the sweary laughs are just about intact." — Empire Magazine

3/5 83% From Up On Poppy Hill (2013) " Not on a par with Ghibli's greatest work like Totoro or Spirited Away but not without charms of its own. A solid second effort from Miyazaki Junior." — Empire Magazine

2/5 25% 009 Re: Cyborg " A disappointingly dated and unpowered Manga update." — Empire Magazine

3/5 68% Fast & Furious 6 (2013) " Furious 6, like its predecessors, is a big screen no-brainer that's objectively terrible but undeniably pleasurable." — Empire Magazine
Posted May 12, 2013
4/5 84% Dragon (2012) " Full of blistering action sequences worthy of the Shaw Brothers legacy. A treat for martial arts fans." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 28, 2013
2/5 36% The ABCs of Death (2013) " An interesting idea, but with so many cooks involved, the broth isn't quite good enough." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 22, 2013
2/5 56% Citadel (2012) " Plenty of pungent ideas and a nice line in urban terror. The final product falls short of the best in Brit horror, though." — Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 25, 2013
4/5 70% Jianyu (Reign of Assassins) (2010) " Come for the crunching fight sequences and balletic wire-fu, stay for some surprisingly affecting character moments." — Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 11, 2013
1/5 0% The Fall Of The Essex Boys " The umpteenth iteration of this hackneyed story delivers absolutely nothing that hasn't been done better in made-for-telly thrillers." — Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 4, 2013
4/5 55% V/H/S (2012) " Like last year's Chronicle, here's another reminder that in the right hands found footage still has plenty of capacity to surprise." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 14, 2013
3/5 49% The Man With the Iron Fists (2012) " A mixed bag of lumpen dialogue and martial-arts magic that never quite coalesces into the delirious mayhem we'd hoped for." — Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 3, 2012
4/5 67% In Memory Of My Father (2006) " Despite the dark tone, the likeably unlikeable ensemble cast is uniformly excellent, and there are some real laughs to be had." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2008
3/5 98% The Devil Came on Horseback (2007) " A decent attempt at outling the crises but crucially lacking much depth." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 11, 2008
4/5 87% Jesus Camp (2006) " Funny, sad and horrifying. Anti-fundamentalist rather than anti-Christian, this deserves to preach to more than just the converted." — Empire Magazine
