3/5 35% Poltergeist (2015) "Elevated to more than a so-so remake by a knowing script (a dinner party revelation that the house is built on an old graveyard) and terrific performances, particularly from Rockwell who's seemingly incapable of a bad one. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted May 21, 2015
3/5 87% Spring (2015) "Co-directors Benson and Moorhead cleverly maintain the likelihood of this most unlikely of holiday romances, taking their time to let the narrative breathe and flow. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted May 21, 2015
4/5 98% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "It's the cinematic ride of the year. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted May 14, 2015
3/5 89% Clouds of Sils Maria (2015) "Binoche is reliably good but it's Stewart who genuinely surprises, delivering a sexually-charged portrait of a girl who's youthfully vulnerable at one moment and a whipsmart mobile-phone juggling fixer the next. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted May 14, 2015
3/5 54% The Age of Adaline (2015) "There's a couple of hokey moments - the faux-documentary style voiceover explaining the science behind Adaline's condition - but this is never less than watchable. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted May 7, 2015
3/5 87% Top Five (2014) "It's superior fare and marks Rock out - third time round - as a writer-director and actor to be reckoned with. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted May 7, 2015
4/5 77% Rosewater (2014) "Stewart has crafted a sober, unsensational account of Bahari's ordeal almost completely devoid of the trademark mischievous wit that marks him out as one of the world's most popular presenters. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted May 7, 2015
2/5 59% Spooks: The Greater Good "There's an awful lot of to-ing and fro-ing across a rain sodden capital shot in steely greys yet this non-stop action fails to disguise bizarre motivations and plot holes as big as the London Eye. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted May 7, 2015
3/5 62% Unfriended (2015) "Russian director Levan Gabriadze breathes digital life into the hackneyed "found footage" concept by placing the action in this revenge thriller solely on one teenage character's computer screen. " ‐ Sky Movies

Posted Apr 30, 2015
3/5 49% Stonehearst Asylum (2014) "Anderson has a good eye for a murky mystery. With its unhurried yet purposeful pace and moody underlighting, Stonehearst also owes much to his work on Boardwalk Empire. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Apr 23, 2015
3/5 88% The Good Lie (2014) "Ultimately, it's a decent, well-meaning insight into the plight of the so-called Lost Boys (actually 3,600 Sudanese boys and girls) who were found...thanks to Uncle Sam. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Apr 23, 2015
3/5 82% The Falling "Williams delivers a strong performance, convincingly conveying the frustrations of a teen in the throes of sexual awakening while battling against authority and an unfeeling mother. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Apr 23, 2015
4/5 70% The Salvation (2015) "This doesn't add much to the genre but it's always welcome to see a film that does it so well. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Apr 16, 2015
3/5 23% Child 44 (2015) "Espinosa manages to engineer some standout moments and Hardy rises above his dodgy accent to deliver a cruelly believable portrait of a good man trapped between a hammer and sickle. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Apr 16, 2015
5/5 84% While We're Young (2015) "Funny and wise, it's got to be a front-runner for best comedy of the year. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Apr 2, 2015
3/5 31% Insurgent (2015) "The first Divergent instalment proved a bit dull whereas this one is enlivened by some first-rate special effects. " ‐ Sky Movies

Posted Mar 19, 2015
3/5 46% Home (2015) "This bowls along amiably enough, boosted by some astonishing visuals, but is let down by a gossamer-thin script and uninspired characters. " ‐ Sky Movies

Posted Mar 12, 2015
2/5 11% Unfinished Business (2015) "Scott's direction seems to suffer from ADHD - most of the flair-free gags are rushed and little or no momentum is allowed to build up before we're on to the next malfunctioning comedy re-run. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Mar 5, 2015

Posted Feb 23, 2015
3/5 34% Blackhat (2015) "It's never less than watchable and the beautifully choreographed brutality of the final pay-off is worth the wait. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Feb 19, 2015

4/5 90% Wild (2014) "In a career that has seen its ups and downs, it's good to see Witherspoon making a bold step in the right direction. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jan 16, 2015
3/5 83% Testament Of Youth (2015) "It's a strictly stiff-upper lip affair that occupies a time when old-fashioned values were being challenged and ultimately changed, in no small measure thanks to Brittain's strength as a social campaigner. " ‐ Sky Movies

Posted Jan 8, 2015
4/5 21% The Woman in Black 2 Angel of Death (2015) "Director Tom Harper reins back on the Gothic overkill of the original, keeping the jump shocks to a minumum so when they come - you feel them. " ‐ Sky Movies

3/5 51% Unbroken (2014) "So convincing is O'Connell's brutal portrayal that you don't doubt for one minute that he was the wild-card son of decent Italian immigrants who settled in Torrance, California. " ‐ Sky Movies

Posted Dec 26, 2014
3/5 28% Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014) "Ultimately, it's a determinedly un-ironic biblical epic which may have no time for laughs but shows a keen capacity to tell a decent story well. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Dec 26, 2014
4/5 61% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) "Further proof - should we require it - that few directors can match Jackson for breathtaking scope and subtly endearing detail in the same film. " ‐ Sky Movies

Posted Dec 8, 2014
3/5 31% Men, Women & Children (2014) "The acting - Sandler is affectingly muted and Dean Norris brings to mind the late James Gandolfini as a deserted dad - elevates the narrative while the destructive possibilities of over-reliance on electronic communication are soundly hammered home.
