2/5 43% The Guvnors " It pushes the dubious idea that old-school London thugs are a proper bunch of diamond geezers - though if you mess wiv 'em, they will do ya. " — Time Out
Posted Aug 29, 2014
3/5 64% WolfCop " WolfCop isn't going to win any awards for originality or good taste, but for a Friday night flick this ticks all the right boxes." — Time Out
Posted Aug 19, 2014
2/5 19% Into The Storm (2014) " When the badass cyclones muscle into town, ripping up schools, banks and airports, the film is fairly fun. Sadly, everything else about it is, well, a bit of a disaster." — Time Out
Posted Aug 19, 2014
3/5 65% Lucy (2014) " Lucy is not about to win any prizes from Mensa ... but this isn't quite like any other blockbuster you'll see this year." — Time Out
Posted Aug 19, 2014
2/5 75% We Gotta Get Out of This Place (2013) " With solid performances from all three leads and lovely twilight photography, the stage is set for a heartfelt coming-of-age drama - but the dire script has other ideas." — Time Out
Posted Aug 13, 2014
2/5 53% Blood Ties (2014) " If you hear an unearthly sound during Blood Ties, it might be Sidney Lumet's ghost attempting to contact his lawyer." — Time Out
Posted Aug 13, 2014
3/5 71% Dinosaur 13 (2014) " Using home-video footage and talking-head interviews, Dinosaur 13 dramatically depicts the thrill of archaeological discovery." — Time Out
Posted Aug 13, 2014
1/5 71% The Inbetweeners Movie 2 " 'The Inbetweeners 2' is riddled with contempt: for its characters, for its audience and most notably for the entire female gender." — Time Out
Posted Aug 11, 2014
2/5 34% The Expendables 3 (2014) " Are there legions of middle-aged weightlifting nuts out there who yearn for the good old days of Chuck Norris mowing down foreign Johnnies with an uzi 9mm? " — Time Out
Posted Aug 5, 2014
2/5 76% Moebius (2014) " As an exercise in unrelenting discomfort, it's hard to beat this monstrous experiment from Korean provocateur Kim Ki-duk." — Time Out
Posted Aug 5, 2014
3/5 72% The German Doctor (2014) " This curious, surprisingly safe melodrama fictionalises the postwar life of brutal Nazi surgeon Josef Mengele." — Time Out
Posted Aug 5, 2014
2/5 33% Blackwood " A forgettable addition to the proud British tradition of haunted-country-pile movies." — Time Out
Posted Jul 29, 2014
2/5 20% Delight " Pretensions abound in this uninvolving slice of artsy, low-budget British melodrama." — Time Out
Posted Jul 29, 2014
4/5 92% Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) " To misquote Forrest Gump's mother, Guardians of the Galaxy is like a box of chocolates. Or rather, it's like a vast, family-sized festive crate of chocolates, all wrapped in the shiniest packaging, all exploding with sweetness and surprises." — Time Out
Posted Jul 25, 2014
2/5 61% Hercules (2014) " Strap on your swordbelt, buckle your sandals and oil up your rippling six-pack, because here comes yet another interminable, CGI-drenched mythic mish-mash with far more money than brain cells. " — Time Out
Posted Jul 23, 2014
5/5 86% The Lady from Shanghai (1948) " A magnificent mess of switchbacks and revelations, climaxing with one of cinema's most outrageously inventive sequences. " — Time Out
Posted Jul 23, 2014
5/5 100% Branded to Kill (1967) " 'Branded to Kill' is one of those films that feels so far ahead of its time, we may still not have caught up to it. The violence is raw, the sex even more so, and the monochrome photography is flawless." — Time Out
Posted Jul 23, 2014
3/5 100% Bastards " It's a straightforward story simply but powerfully told." — Time Out
Posted Jul 8, 2014
4/5 90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) " It may lack its predecessor's lofty ambitions, but once the bullets, spears and hairy fists start flying you'll be too wrapped up to care." — Time Out
Posted Jul 1, 2014
3/5 58% Keeping Rosy " Maxine Peake does a fine job of playing a seriously unlikeable character in this frosty, low-budget British drama." — Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2014
3/5 100% Leave To Remain " A convincing attempt to give a voice to some of Britain's most marginalised residents." — Time Out
Posted Jun 17, 2014
2/5 29% 3 Days To Kill (2014) " Charlie's Angels director McG used to know how to marshal a decent action scene (if nothing else), but that touch seems to have deserted him." — Time Out
Posted Jun 17, 2014
3/5 —— How We Used To Live " Finds poetry in the whirl of people in motion, in rapidly changing fashions, in urban sprawl and development, in the fading of the old ways and the rise of the new" — Time Out
Posted Jun 10, 2014
2/5 23% Devil's Knot (2014) " Takes a long time to tell us nothing we didn't know ... A missed opportunity. " — Time Out
Posted Jun 10, 2014
3/5 63% The Sacrament (2014) " Ti West may possess one of the most compelling voices in horror, but the wit and originality that characterised his earlier films is all but absent." — Time Out
Posted Jun 3, 2014
3/5 84% 22 Jump Street (2014) " There's enough goodwill to balance out the clunky bits." — Time Out
Posted Jun 3, 2014
3/5 85% Night Moves (2014) " Josh is simply too brittle a central character to empathize with, and as the noose tightens, it becomes increasingly hard to care what he thinks, says or does." — Time Out New York
Posted May 28, 2014
3/5 76% Concussion (2013) " The suggestion that prostitution is a risk-free route to self-discovery for suburban soccer moms is glib bordering on offensive, but Robin Weigert is tough and terrific in the lead." — Time Out
Posted May 19, 2014
4/5 86% Cold in July (2014) " This relentless tale of small-town treachery spiralling into bloody vengeance is one of the year's best indie thrillers" — Time Out
Posted May 19, 2014
3/5 73% Godzilla (2014) " It's always fun to watch scaly, skyscraper-sized behemoths lay waste to civilisation, but a bit more human drama would be welcome." — Time Out
Posted May 12, 2014
4/5 94% Ida (2014) " The effect is somewhere between incredible beauty and mounting discomfort." — Time Out
Posted May 6, 2014
3/5 53% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) " Fans who made the first movie such a huge success will doubtless find much to enjoy here, while others will long for the boldness, scope and wit of The Avengers." — Time Out
Posted May 1, 2014
3/5 89% Willow Creek (2014) " Willow Creek doesn't take us anywhere new -- the climax is abrupt and unsatisfying -- but it's a whole lot of jarring, juddering fun while it lasts." — Time Out
Posted Apr 29, 2014
3/5 96% Blue Ruin (2014) " It's a taut, unflinching first act ... But as the bodies pile up and the plot circles in on itself, that beautifully constructed web of suspense begins to unravel." — Time Out
Posted Apr 29, 2014
2/5 64% For No Good Reason (2014) " When a documentary feels the urge to shout about its celebrity cast with a lengthy, elaborate opening-credits sequence, could it be making up for shortcomings elsewhere?" — Time Out New York
Posted Apr 22, 2014
3/5 93% An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker (2013) " It's all very intimate and convincing ... and the performances are naturalistic throughout. But there's nothing here we haven't seen before." — Time Out
Posted Apr 22, 2014
3/5 91% Cupcakes " The sort of movie that adjectives like 'frothy' and 'bubbly' were invented for." — Time Out
Posted Apr 22, 2014
3/5 67% Magic Magic (2013) " The first half of Magic Magic is greatly enjoyable: the performances are strong, the photography is crisp and immersive, and the mood is ripe and ominous." — Time Out
Posted Apr 15, 2014
3/5 96% The Lunchbox (2014) " There's nothing wildly original here, but it's carried off with charm and wit, and a pair of very enjoyable central performances." — Time Out
Posted Apr 9, 2014
3/5 48% Rio 2 (2014) " There are problems here ... but the characterisation is feisty and memorable, the song-and-dance sequences intricate and colourful, and it'll charm the socks off little people." — Time Out
Posted Apr 1, 2014
3/5 79% The Borderlands (2014) " There's nothing wildly original here, and the gotcha scares get repetitive. But the script is witty, the cast are simply terrific ... a spiky, intelligent little throat-grabber." — Time Out
Posted Mar 25, 2014
3/5 78% Veronica Mars (2014) " There's something rather bland about Veronica Mars ... But the one-liners are sharp, the plot unpredictable and the whole thing ticks along with a minimum of fuss." — Time Out
Posted Mar 12, 2014
4/5 100% Yurusarezaru mono (Unforgiven) " This remake of Clint Eastwood's Oscar-winning epic may lack the austere, classical weight of the original, but it makes up for it in visual splendour. Unexpectedly brilliant." — Time Out
Posted Feb 25, 2014
4/5 79% Lamb Of God's As The Palaces Burn (2014) " As the Palaces Burn metamorphoses from slam-dancing rock doc to genuinely gripping courtroom drama." — Time Out
Posted Feb 25, 2014
2/5 48% Stalingrad (2014) " Protechnically impressive, but something important is missing: tension, originality and memorable characters." — Time Out
Posted Feb 18, 2014
3/5 48% RoboCop (2014) " Junking Verhoeven's sledgehammer satire in favour of real-world politics and 12A thrills, this is a slicker, shinier, admittedly inferior affair - but it's by no means a write-off." — Time Out
Posted Feb 7, 2014
4/5 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) " The script is witty, the satire surprisingly pointed, and the animation tactile and imaginative." — Time Out New York
Posted Feb 4, 2014
3/5 64% August: Osage County (2013) " This star-studded loopy melodrama is brash, foul-mouthed, self-consciously offensive, intermittently insightful and has a gaping hole where its heart should be." — Time Out
Posted Jan 21, 2014
2/5 38% Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (2014) " The plot is a confusing, derivative mishmash of half-baked supernatural clichés, and the total absence of characterization makes it hard to care what happens." — Time Out New York
Posted Jan 8, 2014
5/5 97% 12 Years a Slave (2013) " The cumulative emotional effect is devastating: the final scenes are as angry, as memorable, as overwhelming as anything modern cinema has to offer." — Time Out
