4/5 92% The Survivalist "Fingleton writes and directs with gusto and flair. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 11, 2016
2/5 46% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) "This seems like it's just laughing at Austen. It feels like anti-fan-fiction. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 11, 2016
1/5 61% Concussion (2015) "Smith's performance is shallow, conceited and bland. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 11, 2016
3/5 36% The Green Inferno (2015) "The sheer chutzpah of Eli Roth escalates in this breathtakingly crass, ultra-violent satire targeting the liberal PC classes - a twist on Ruggero Deodato's cult shocker Cannibal Holocaust. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 11, 2016
4/5 96% The Iron Giant (1999) "Watching this again 17 years after its original release, I savoured again the resemblances to Spielberg, Wilde and Brian Forbes's Whistle Down the Wind. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 11, 2016
4/5 84% A Bigger Splash (2016) "The story begins to resemble something by Ruth Rendell, as filmed by Chabrol. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 11, 2016
4/5 81% Mountains May Depart (Shan he gu ren) (2016) "Jia Zhang-ke's Mountains May Depart is a mysterious and in its way staggeringly ambitious piece of work from a film-maker whose creativity is evolving before our eyes. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 10, 2016
3/5 22% Zoolander 2 (2016) "Derek and Hansel aren't as hot right now as they used to be. But I still felt some warmth. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 10, 2016
4/5 84% Deadpool (2016) "Deadpool is neurotic and needy - and very entertaining. An innocent pleasure. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 7, 2016
4/5 91% Janis: Little Girl Blue (2015) "She emerges here as a raw and uncompromising talent; her voice tends towards a gravelly roar of rage and need. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 4, 2016
1/5 10% Point Break (2015) "[A] fantastically pointless remake, stuffed with humourless and self-important machismo. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 4, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet Hokusai "Interesting and unexpectedly complex ... " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 4, 2016
3/5 100% Uzumasa Limelight (2014) "The final moments of this film are perhaps a little predictable. But it's also a heartfelt tribute, both to Chaplin and to the samurai movie tradition. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 4, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet The American Dreamer "There is a fuzzy underground feel to this film: choppy editing, sudden freeze frames, maundering voiceover. It has archival value as a study of Hopper and a footnote to the American new wave. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 4, 2016
2/5 No Score Yet Taking Stock "It has a quirkiness that might have worked better on television. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 4, 2016
3/5 72% Trumbo (2015) "Trumbo is no masterpiece, but the story of a writer imprisoned in America for his political beliefs needed to be told. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 4, 2016
4/5 88% Innocence Of Memories "Perhaps no film can entirely compete with the simple fact of this novel/museum's existence, but the movie circles around the dual conceptual artefact beguilingly. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 28, 2016
3/5 43% The 33 (2015) "It's pretty hokey but likable, and the fantasy "last supper" scene is tear-jerking stuff. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 28, 2016
2/5 9% Dirty Grandpa (2016) "This grossout comedy takes De Niro fans into a new emotional phase that I can only call "post-despair". We are past being astonished and horrified. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 28, 2016
3/5 25% Backtrack (2016) "It's a bit derivative, with borrowings from a handful of other films, but there are some nasty moments. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 28, 2016
2/5 54% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) "The title should give you some idea of how long this two-and-a-half hour film really feels. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 28, 2016
2/5 37% Dad's Army (2016) "The question that suggests itself in response to all this is a spectral "Why ... ?" " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 26, 2016
4/5 100% Attacking The Devil: Harold Evans And The Last Nazi War Crime "There is just one thing missing from this excellent documentary: an analysis of the psychological taboo factor - a factor that Distillers used to its advantage. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 21, 2016
2/5 25% Dark Places (2015) "All in all, its contrivances might have been indulged more satisfyingly in a TV miniseries. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 21, 2016
2/5 33% Our Brand is Crisis (2015) "There's nothing new about the political smoke-and-mirrors; the Bullock/Thornton relationship fails to convince, and the inevitable idealistic resolution feels unsatisfying and unearned. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 21, 2016
3/5 44% Lost in Karastan "Broad comedy this may be, but it's well made and founded on a funky kind of social-realist plausibility, and the locations (in Tbilisi, Georgia) are rather amazing. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 21, 2016
2/5 17% The 5th Wave (2016) "It's written to a machine-tooled formula, with two more episodes naturally planned to gouge cash out of the fanbase, and whatever interest this film has dies about five minutes before the closing credits. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 21, 2016
2/5 88% The Big Short (2015) "I came to The Big Short in a state of anticipation, only to be baffled at how smug, laborious and self-important it is, trying to combine Gordon Gekko sexiness with anti-banker correctness ... " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 21, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet Patience, Patience, You'll Go to Paradise! (Patience, Patience) "An interesting study. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 14, 2016
3/5 94% Creed (2015) "It's a relief to watch this likable boxing picture, which finds a way to evolve the Rocky franchise with humour and humility. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 14, 2016
3/5 80% Ip Man 3 (2016) "Unassuming, likable entertainment. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 14, 2016
1/5 13% Breakdown "Breakdown becomes more and more preposterous and embarrassing as it goes on. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 14, 2016
2/5 36% Dragon Blade (Tian jiang xiong shi) (2015) "There are nice moments, but this is pure bombast, and Chan's natural action flair is not given free rein. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 14, 2016
4/5 96% Room (2015) "This is a disturbing and absorbing film, shrewdly acted, particularly by Larson. It lets the audience in; it does not just let the nightmare stun them into submission. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 14, 2016
4/5 81% Bolshoi Babylon (2015) "A shocking tale of dysfunction, showing that the discipline needed for classical music creates violence and pain as a hidden byproduct, like nuclear waste. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 7, 2016
2/5 88% A War (Krigen) (2016) "Standard-issue liberal guilt and hand-wringingly uninteresting dilemmas are the order of the day, with no real surprises or challenges. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 7, 2016
2/5 56% Partisan (2015) "Oddly underpowered, anticlimactic and torpidly acted ... " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 7, 2016
3/5 60% Yakuza Apocalypse (2015) "It is extremely mad, long and often tiresome. Yet it is acted with eerie and absolute conviction, and has an interestingly surreal quality; Miike has a claim to be one of cinema's genuine surrealists. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Dec 31, 2015
3/5 70% The Danish Girl (2015) "The Danish Girl has charm, but not quite passion. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Dec 31, 2015
4/5 94% Contempt (1964) "Uncompromising, uningratiating film-making. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Dec 31, 2015
3/5 63% Sleeping with Other People (2015) "Inevitably, it pretends to be edgier than it actually is, and doesn't create a sustained character development in the way Nora Ephron managed, but it's watchable for all that. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Dec 31, 2015
3/5 87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) "A Christmas nostalgia trip for parents. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Dec 17, 2015
2/5 0% Sparks and Embers "The movie is competently put together, like a TV commercial, but the dialogue and characterisation are pretty unbearable, a Google Translate version of English, spoken by characters who are almost but not exactly like human beings. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Dec 17, 2015
3/5 43% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) "Howard is a director who believes in strong, primary-colour storytelling, with plenty of uncomplicated emotion. Yet this story is oddly more subtle than you might think ... " ‐ Guardian
Posted Dec 17, 2015
5/5 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) "The Force Awakens re-awoke my love of the first movie and turned my inner fanboy into my outer fanboy. There are very few films which leave me facially exhausted after grinning for 135 minutes, but this is one. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Dec 16, 2015
5/5 75% The Hateful Eight (2015) ""Thriller" is a generic label which has lost its force. But The Hateful Eight thrills. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Dec 15, 2015
4/5 60% Sisters (2015) "This isn't going to get much traction in awards season: but it's smart and entertaining. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Dec 11, 2015
2/5 31% By The Sea (2015) "Angelina and Brad do have that longed-for commodity: chemistry, though it bubbles away to nothing at the end. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Dec 10, 2015
4/5 94% The Forbidden Room (2015) "It is sometimes brilliant and sometimes boring, but even the boring parts have an eccentric sparkle. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Dec 10, 2015
3/5 91% Grandma (2015) "Maybe a bit predictable, and you just know that this feisty oldster is going to spark up a picturesque joint. But Tomlin sells it. " ‐ Guardian
