3/5 21% Let's Be Cops (2014) " Let's Be Cops is an amiable watch that succeeds in spite of its many flaws, but you can't help but wonder what someone like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang's Shane Black or Superbad's Greg Mottola might have done had they got hold of it." — The List
Posted Aug 26, 2014
2/5 21% Into The Storm (2014) " Into the Storm may blow you away with the quality of some of its special effects but it'll leave you underwhelmed and exasperated in most other respects." — The List
Posted Aug 19, 2014
3/5 34% The Expendables 3 (2014) " The Expendables 3 suffers from a desire to play safe; from its lazy formula to its watered-down violence and largely consequence-free peril, and as a result never rises above the level of expendable viewing itself." — The List
Posted Aug 11, 2014
3/5 61% Hercules (2014) " Essentially, Hercules is a fun ride while it lasts." — The List
Posted Jul 23, 2014
4/5 90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) " Proves you can marry visual spectacle with something to engage the heart and the head too." — The List
Posted Jul 14, 2014
2/5 18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) " There's no good reason to justify how a film that's essentially about robots bashing other robots can be stretched out to such gargantuan lengths, especially with a plot as hole-ridden and lightweight as this." — The List
Posted Jul 1, 2014
2/5 24% Tammy (2014) " It doesn't really know what it wants to be: big, bawdy studio comedy or something more subtle and indie spirited, as evidenced in its final third. The result is an ill-conceived mess." — The List
Posted Jul 1, 2014
4/5 84% 22 Jump Street (2014) " A wildly entertaining feel-good movie that not only rates as one of the best mainstream comedies of the year but also one of the finest sequels you are likely to see." — The List
Posted Jun 3, 2014
3/5 91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) " With the principal players all on top form, some arresting set pieces and a nice mix of humour and drama, Days of Future Past does more than enough to overcome its imperfections and keep fans satisfied." — The List
Posted May 15, 2014
4/5 73% Godzilla (2014) " A self-confessed Godzilla geek, Edwards has stayed true to many of the origins of the original Toho creation (directed by Ishiro Honda way back in 1954) by playing once again on nuclear fears and nature's ability to remind mankind of its power." — The List
Posted May 13, 2014
2/5 20% Sabotage (2014) " Despite some decent moments the film struggles to realise its potential." — The List
Posted May 9, 2014
2/5 7% Plastic (2014) " Even the unintentional laughs eventually give way to groans of disdain. Don't be conned into seeing it." — The List
Posted Apr 29, 2014
4/5 53% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) " Amazing in places, overcooked at others, Marc Webb's sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man is a generally crowd-pleasing affair that thrives on the ability of leading man Andrew Garfield." — Indie London
Posted Apr 16, 2014
2/5 41% Divergent (2014) " It's always disappointing when a film that places so much emphasis on the need to be free-thinking and different from the masses conforms so rigidly to other movies." — The List
Posted Mar 31, 2014
2/5 68% About Last Night (2014) " Ealy and Bryant make for a bland couple and during the more weighty stuff appear to be just going through the motions." — The List
Posted Mar 18, 2014
3/5 79% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) " Muppets Most Wanted is a solid effort but lacks the magical quality of its nostalgia-driven predecessor." — The List
Posted Mar 13, 2014
2/5 13% Winter's Tale (2014) " For all of its lofty ambitions, A New York Winter's Tale emerges as a hugely disappointing experience." — The List
Posted Feb 24, 2014
3/5 46% The Book Thief (2013) " Feels much less potent, despite some very good acting and a couple of genuinely moving moments." — The List
Posted Feb 11, 2014
2/5 15% Endless Love (2014) " Endless Love is the type of film that resorts to big soundtrack moments to let viewers know how they should be feeling, which has the effect of highlighting the movie's failings even more." — The List
Posted Feb 11, 2014
2/5 22% That Awkward Moment (2014) " A romantic comedy from the perspective of three male friends has the potential to offer something new to the genre but despite one or two comedy highlights That Awkward Moment largely makes a mess of things." — The List
Posted Jan 27, 2014
3/5 29% Grudge Match (2013) " For all its many flaws, Grudge Match wins you over - but it's a points decision!" — The List
Posted Jan 24, 2014
3/5 55% Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014) " A competent genre entry that delivers its thrills efficiently and in a more old-school manner than the recent Bourne or Bond films." — The List
Posted Jan 21, 2014
1/5 18% Devil's Due (2014) " From poor conception through to shoddy delivery, Devil's Due is a tedious and wholly derivative horror experience." — The List
Posted Jan 16, 2014
4/5 75% Lone Survivor (2014) " Berg's direction is super intense, especially during the prolonged fire-fights in the mountains - sequences which will likely leave viewers feeling as bruised, breathless and scared as the soldiers themselves." — The List
Posted Jan 13, 2014
2/5 14% 47 Ronin (2013) " First-time director Carl Rinsch's mega-budget take on one of Japan's most enduring legends feels like a folly that should never have been indulged." — The List
Posted Jan 6, 2014
3/5 74% The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug (2013) " Clocking in at in excess of two and a half hours, this second film in The Hobbit trilogy hits the ground running with a couple of impressive set pieces but runs out of puff long before it reaches the scenes with Tolkien's fabled dragon." — The List
Posted Dec 11, 2013
2/5 69% Powder Room " Powder Room is designed to be an amusing expose of what really goes on in women's toilets but its wayward plotting and lacklustre comedy mean it has more disappointments than laughs." — The List
Posted Dec 11, 2013
2/5 34% The Counselor (2013) " The Counsellor is a cold, pessimistic film that feels especially unforgiving. McCarthy's script is far too distanced for its own good and requires more from its audience than it is prepared to give back." — The List
Posted Nov 15, 2013
2/5 49% Carrie (2013) " Kimberly Peirce's update on Stephen King's Carrie slavishly follows the path taken by Brian De Palma's 1976 film and fails to make any real impact." — The List
Posted Nov 4, 2013
2/5 65% Thor: The Dark World (2013) " While Thor: The Dark World is fun in places it's far from a satisfying experience." — The List
Posted Oct 30, 2013
2/5 42% Closed Circuit (2013) " Closed Circuit may tackle some heavyweight issues but it ends up feeling lightweight." — The List
Posted Oct 29, 2013
2/5 66% One Chance (2014) " For all its feel-good intent, the film is ultimately generic and dispiriting." — The List
Posted Oct 28, 2013
2/5 60% Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa (2013) " More miss than hit, despite some hilarious sequences." — The List
Posted Oct 23, 2013
3/5 84% Last Passenger (2014) " Nooshin succeeds in keeping things suitably tense throughout, throwing in a few decent set pieces without compromising the credibility of the situation, at least until a slightly overblown finale." — The List
Posted Oct 17, 2013
2/5 49% Escape Plan (2013) " Escape Plan ... promises more than it delivers. It's disposable, even expendable, hokum." — The List
Posted Oct 14, 2013
3/5 52% The To Do List (2013) " It has heart and intelligence to offset its more raucous moments and looks destined for cult appeal." — The List
Posted Oct 4, 2013
3/5 67% How I Live Now (2013) " Macdonald's film may operate within the same genre as past releases like Tomorrow, When The War Began and Red Dawn but it's more intelligent and a lot darker than those films." — The List
Posted Oct 1, 2013
4/5 82% Prisoners (2013) " Arrives with an emotional complexity and gripping intensity that has been sorely missing from a lot of Hollywood thrillers of late." — The List
Posted Sep 26, 2013
2/5 9% Runner Runner (2013) " Once all of the film's cards have been revealed, it's hard not to feel a little cheated." — The List
Posted Sep 26, 2013
1/5 8% Diana (2013) " A shambolic and hugely speculative look at one of her love affairs that has more in common with a bad romcom." — The List
Posted Sep 20, 2013
1/5 13% R.I.P.D. (2013) " Every bit the lifeless blockbuster that its name suggests." — The List
Posted Sep 19, 2013
2/5 50% White House Down (2013) " A brainless, tedious experience." — The List
Posted Sep 9, 2013
3/5 59% Riddick (2013) " For all its obvious flaws and stupidity, Riddick consistently entertains." — The List
Posted Sep 3, 2013
4/5 75% The Kings of Summer (2013) " Thanks in no small part to its trio of hugely likeable teenage leads, the film breezes along, mixing comedy with drama to often seamless effect, while exploring the kind of issues that viewers can all find relatable." — The List
Posted Aug 27, 2013
2/5 12% The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (2013) " It quite often feels like fantasy movie making by numbers and is particularly uninspired." — The List
Posted Aug 23, 2013
4/5 68% Elysium (2013) " For the most part, Elysium is a thrilling blockbuster that marries intelligence with spectacle to striking effect and confirms Blomkamp as the new king of the genre in the process." — The List
Posted Aug 20, 2013
2/5 47% We're The Millers (2013) " There's very little about the film that rings true." — The List
Posted Aug 16, 2013
2/5 31% The Lone Ranger (2013) " It's perhaps no coincidence that the film ends up on a runaway locomotive as this feels like a train wreck throughout." — The List
Posted Aug 7, 2013
2/5 34% The Internship (2013) " Alongside the film's increasingly irritating 'Googliness', The Internship is as silver-tongued and soulless as the rhetoric it appears to peddle." — The List
Posted Jul 5, 2013
2/5 21% The Seasoning House (2013) " This is a deeply unpleasant subject matter and Hyett's handling of it leaves a nasty taste in the mouth." — The List
