4/5 100% 45 Years "Courtenay and Rampling have left it late to deliver possibly the most devastatingly telling performances of their careers. His doddering detachment provokes icy fury while she take passive aggression to new heights. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Aug 27, 2015
4/5 83% Mistress America (2015) "Greta Gerwig's ditzy typhoon socialite Brooke has to be one of the richest creations of writer-director Noah Baumbach's career. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Aug 13, 2015
4/5 92% The Gift (2015) "The usual certainties of a conventional nailbiter are turned on their heads and you're left with a draining sense of dread. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Aug 6, 2015
4/5 93% The Diary Of A Teenage Girl (2015) "It will get up a lot of people's noses but this warm and grown-up film is shameless in the best sense of the word. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Aug 6, 2015
1/5 9% The Cobbler (2015) "It's difficult to believe this sentimental pudding is written and directed by Thomas McCarthy, who was behind the genuinely touching The Station Agent and The Visitor and wrote the script for Pixar's Up. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jul 31, 2015
3/5 34% Beyond The Reach (2015) "It's never less than watchable and will do wonders for sales of aftersun. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jul 31, 2015
2/5 8% Hot Pursuit (2015) "Hot pursuit loses it. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jul 30, 2015
5/5 98% Inside Out (2015) "Wise, witty, warm...and Pixar's most audacious move yet. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jul 23, 2015
3/5 54% Maggie (2015) "It's a small film compared with the blockbuster fare usually associated with Schwarzenegger, but one that will linger longer in the mind. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jul 23, 2015
3/5 16% The Gallows (2015) "The eerie stage set - evocative of 18th century Salem -makes for a genuinely creepy atmosphere and the decision by the film-makers to hold back with any terrifying revelations pays dividends. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jul 17, 2015
3/5 20% Self/less (2015) "It ... manages to leaven a potentially leaden premise with a few gags that gently mock the absurdity yet never undermine it to a degree that it's anything less than enjoyable. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jul 17, 2015
3/5 90% Love & Mercy (2015) "It's a gently authorative and fond account of two key periods in Wilson's life and a sober overview of a career that threw up some of the best songs in popular music. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jul 9, 2015
2/5 26% Terminator Genisys (2015) "A tired, uninspired slog through the well-worn tropes of previous Terminator movies ... " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jul 2, 2015
4/5 82% The Overnight (2015) "Serious points are made as the foursome get into the swing. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jun 25, 2015
4/5 91% Slow West (2015) "Proof, should it be required, that the Western certainly hasn't gone west. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jun 25, 2015
4/5 87% Mr. Holmes (2015) "A scintillatingly humane drama that's structured cleverly using the tropes of the traditional Holmes story yet taking the character in directions where he can rue his lack of imagination in a world where he functioned so ably as a coldly logical thinker. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jun 18, 2015
2/5 32% Entourage (2015) "This Entourage isn't decent company at all. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jun 18, 2015
4/5 97% The Look of Silence (2015) "Disturbingly, Oppenheimer stills feels unable to publicly name his crew. A large chunk of the rolling credits still refers to them as "anonymous". " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jun 11, 2015
3/5 60% Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) "Satisfyingly scary and occasionally genuinely disturbing, this is the perfect recipe for sleepless nights. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Jun 4, 2015
3/5 77% Danny Collins (2015) "There's a marked change of plot about two-thirds through, which could derail the enjoyment of some viewers, but by the final credits you'll be calling for an encore. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted May 28, 2015
3/5 31% 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 89% 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 86% 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 63% 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 60% 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 52% 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 78% The Falling (2015) "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 16, 2015
3/5 26% 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 83% 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 30% 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 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
3/5 30% Chappie (2015) "Forget motion capture. This could have done with a bit of emotion capture. " ‐ Sky Movies
Posted Mar 5, 2015
1/5 10% The Boy Next Door (2015) "Probably the guiltiest pleasure yet of the new millennia, this brims over with unintentional titters ... " ‐ Sky Movies

4/5 75% Crash (2004) "Using a complex but comprehensible web of fraught relationships, chance encounters and random circumstances, [Haggis] provides a snapshot of a city strained to breaking. " ‐ Sky Movies
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
