1/5 20% Ratchet & Clank (2016) "In a golden period for both animation and children's filmmaking, here is a head-splitting reminder of just how bad those two things can get. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Apr 28, 2016
4/5 71% Miles Ahead (2016) "This is a tumultuous and messy film that leaves you craving all the Miles Davis it doesn't give you, and I wouldn't have wanted it to be any other way. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Apr 21, 2016
2/5 68% Louder Than Bombs (2016) "The film leaves you crying out for more bombs, more noise - and more Huppert. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Apr 21, 2016
5/5 94% Captain America: Civil War (2016) "This is the cinematic superhero showdown you've dreamt of since childhood, precisely because that's everything - and all - it wants to be. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Apr 20, 2016
100% Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) "A delicious, finger-tingling comedy about the creative instinct that makes your heart want to squawk with joy. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Apr 14, 2016
1/5 49% Hardcore Henry (2016) "A mostly dreadful piece of would-be #viral #content disguised as an action film. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Apr 9, 2016
3/5 16% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) "A welcome surprise: sharper and funnier than its doom-laden predecessor, with a fantasy setting immersive enough to distract from the narrative's various chips and cracks. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Apr 7, 2016
4/5 94% The Jungle Book (2016) "The film could have easily passed muster as a dry technical showcase, but Favreau gives it real analogue earth-under-the-fingernails charm. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Apr 4, 2016
4/5 91% Francofonia (2016) "The mood's often as fun as it is funereal, and though the film occasionally feels clever in a way that isn't necessarily a compliment, Sokurov's ideas have a philosophical depth and richness that are found almost nowhere else in cinema. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Mar 30, 2016
79% Eddie The Eagle (2016) "Fletcher has a brilliantly attuned sixth sense for what his audience wants to see at any given millisecond, and Eddie's final flight, from the 90-foot ramp at Calgary, is a mini-masterpiece of intuitive cutting. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Mar 24, 2016
4/5 98% Zootopia (2016) "One of the film's great strengths is the trust it puts in its young audience to decode its complex, nuanced message about the value of difference. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Mar 24, 2016
2/5 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) "No major blockbuster in years has been this incoherently structured, this seemingly uninterested in telling a story with clarity and purpose. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Mar 22, 2016
5/5 90% The Witch (2016) "One of the scariest horror movies in years - and not the creep-up-and-prod-you kind of scary either, but a profound, unsettling dread that gnaws at your bones, and which comes back to find you in the dark. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Mar 10, 2016
5/5 92% Anomalisa (2015) "Even in its apparently throwaway opening gag, Anomalisa has human existence covered. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Mar 10, 2016
4/5 89% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) "The film zips between claustrophobic tension and nervous laughs with hoverfly agility. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Mar 10, 2016
2/5 12% The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016) "Like the earlier Divergent films, Allegiant is studded with enticing science-fiction ideas, but it keeps such a poker-straight face while presenting them, you often can't help but crack up. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Mar 8, 2016
4/5 78% Time Out Of Mind (2015) "Moverman's screenplay boldly rejects conventional plot structure, instead showing us George's life in breaths and snatches. It's all soundtracked by the city itself: a great clamour of engines and voices, disembodied and indistinct. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Mar 3, 2016
2/5 24% London Has Fallen (2016) "Najafi ... transfers Escape From New York across the Atlantic, turning London into the terrorist safari park of Donald Trump's most fevered imaginings. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Mar 3, 2016
4/5 95% Cemetery of Splendor (2016) "This is the same wondrous journey on which Apichatpong sends his audience: inwards and downwards, to a place where the simplest rhythms of everyday life become hallowed and mythic. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Feb 29, 2016
2/5 9% The Forest (2016) "Unearned jump-scares abound - handily, Japan is full of toothless OAPs who randomly leap at young women during the night - as do the kind of obviously digitally augmented ghouls that dispel a creepy atmosphere on contact. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Feb 25, 2016
4/5 37% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) "A vital, lavish, venomously profane two fingers up at Benefits Street pity porn and the social division it fosters. I laughed, winced, gagged, then laughed even more. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Feb 23, 2016
2/5 47% Freeheld (2015) "It does all the feeling on your behalf, and doesn't seem particularly bothered if you join in or not. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Feb 18, 2016
3/5 54% Triple 9 (2016) "It's an accomplished disappointment: the zealous cast, surplus of attitude and sinewy set pieces never quite compensate for the thinly sketched characters, unfocused plot and general gnawing sense of potential not being met. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Feb 18, 2016
3/5 63% The Finest Hours (2016) "Affleck enlivens it with an unexpected, film-elevating performance that's almost like a pastiche of On The Waterfront-era Marlon Brando - all mumbles, smouldering stares, private smiles, and attention-grabbing fiddles. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Feb 18, 2016
2/5 49% How To Be Single (2016) "Nothing that even dimly approximates real life is anywhere to be seen, unless your idea of real life is a half-hearted Sex and the City remake set in an enormous, open-air branch of Anthropologie. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Feb 18, 2016
4/5 85% Mountains May Depart (Shan he gu ren) (2016) "Mountains May Depart offers a more ambitious and correspondingly messier treatment of those themes -- but its generation-spanning story has serious power, and, in its masterful opening chapter and final sequence, brushes against greatness. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Feb 10, 2016
3/5 83% Deadpool (2016) "This isn't the future of superhero movies, but it's an enjoyably obnoxious detour. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Feb 7, 2016
77% Goosebumps (2015) "This adaptation of R.L. Stine's million-selling series of horror novels for younger readers comes within a hair's breadth of Lego Movie-level ingenious, and occasionally touches Gremlins-level sinister into the bargain. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Feb 4, 2016
1/5 10% Dirty Grandpa (2016) "This is the most engaged De Niro performance in at least five years: his dialogue is both apocalyptically unfunny and clearly enunciated, which somehow makes it all the more galling. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Jan 28, 2016
2/5 33% Dad's Army (2016) "I left the cinema convinced it could work - but whatever it was I'd just seen hadn't. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Jan 28, 2016
4/5 88% The Big Short (2015) "It wants you to leave the cinema not just fired up, but clued in, and goes to knowingly preposterous lengths to ensure it. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Jan 7, 2016
3/5 87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) "For the most part, the film just seems to waft along, and though Charlie Brown's life is low-key by nature, the stories are mostly flimsily low-impact. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Dec 17, 2015
5/5 75% The Hateful Eight (2015) "The Hateful Eight is a parlour-room epic, an entire nation in a single room, a film steeped in its own filminess but at the same time vital, riveting and real. Only Tarantino can do this, and he's done it again. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Dec 16, 2015
5/5 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) "The new heroes of The Force Awakens are brightly drawn, occasionally surprising, and an endless pleasure to spend time with. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Dec 16, 2015
3/5 92% Grandma (2015) "Grandma may not always know best, but it's nearly always funny and absorbing, and there are moments of emotional perspicacity to make you gulp. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Dec 10, 2015
5/5 61% Joy (2015) "Jennifer Lawrence hasn't won an Oscar for reading aloud from the phone book just yet, but she may be about to be nominated for selling a mop. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Dec 7, 2015
4/5 82% The Revenant (2015) "In Alejandro González Iñárritu's astounding new film, DiCaprio puts himself through the wringer. In fact, scratch that: what he goes through in The Revenant makes the wringer look like an Ayurvedic shea butter rubdown. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Dec 4, 2015
1/5 25% Victor Frankenstein (2015) "Blunders at random between leaden Hollywood cliché-ese and florid Russell Brand-style methinksery without landing on a single memorable line or interaction. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Dec 3, 2015
4/5 76% The Good Dinosaur (2015) "The Good Dinosaur may not have much in common with the Pixar films that came before it, but the family resemblance is there wherever it counts. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Nov 23, 2015
5/5 97% Tangerine (2015) "It radiates a candour, immediacy and tongue-scalding sex appeal that a bigger budget would have only smothered. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Nov 12, 2015
4/5 90% Right Now, Wrong Then (2016) "An hour-long love story, told twice - but with tiny variations that send each version on a dramatically different emotional course. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Nov 5, 2015
4/5 70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) "It's sad to see this deservedly successful franchise reach the end of its run: but here's hoping its dissident spirit will survive in young-adult blockbusters to come. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Nov 5, 2015
2/5 26% Kill Your Friends (2016) "The screenplay was adapted by John Niven from his own 2008 novel, and he makes the classic novelist's mistake of assuming that the best way to preserve the voice of his original work is by transplanting as many words as possible from it into the script. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Nov 5, 2015
2/5 No Score Yet Ghost Theater (Gekijô Rei) "It just blithely clumps from one plot point to the next. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Oct 29, 2015
2/5 71% Brand: A Second Coming (2015) "You're left with the sense that Brand might yet be the subject of a great documentary, but he'd probably have to be on the other side of the planet while it was being made. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Oct 25, 2015
5/5 64% Spectre (2015) "No film series has been better at raiding its own mausoleum, and throughout Spectre, ghosts of Bond films past come gliding through the film, trailing shivers of pleasure in their wake. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Oct 21, 2015
4/5 85% Steve Jobs (2015) "Boyle's film makes technology warm-blooded, and reminds us that every machine has its ghost. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Oct 20, 2015
4/5 70% Crimson Peak (2015) "Its sombre sincerity and hypnotic, treasure-box beauty make Crimson Peak feel like a film out of time - but Del Toro, his cast and his crew carry it off without a single postmodern prod or smirk. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Oct 15, 2015
4/5 90% When Marnie Was There (2015) "That's what Ghibli's films have always done - they sweep over you like summer showers, and leave the world seeming brighter and refreshed. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
Posted Oct 15, 2015
2/5 14% Regression (2016) "Ethan Hawke is one of the most naturally plausible screen actors working today, but Regression is the film that has finally defeated him. " ‐ Daily Telegraph
