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 Feb 19, 2015
2/5 28% The Wedding Ringer (2015) "We're left with a few life-lesson platitudes and the knowledge to approach the next Kevin Hart vehicle with care. " ‐ Sky Movies

Posted Jan 16, 2015
3/5 82% 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

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.

Posted Nov 20, 2014
4/5 65% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) "Although unmistakeably laying the groundwork for the finale, there is - for a series ostensibly aimed at adolescent girls - more genuine tension and bona fide thrills than Iron Man, Thor and Captain America rolled into one. " ‐ Sky Movies

Posted Nov 13, 2014
4/5 87% The Skeleton Twins (2014) "By turns, unbearably poignant and laugh-out loud funny, this reveals hidden depths to Hader and gives Wiig a golden opportunity to reveal the subtlety of her range with a knock-out performance. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Nov 13, 2014
3/5 47% The Judge (2014) "There's much pleasure to be derived from the two old and young stagers swapping barbed insults while they unconsciously arrive at a rather poignant understanding. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Oct 16, 2014
3/5 64% The Rewrite (2015) "A rom-com that makes a virtue of it's low-key, indie sensibility. It's also very funny. " ‐ Sky Movies
