2/5 86% Filmed In Supermarionation " An overlong and overexcited documentary about the folks who made 'Thunderbirds'. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Oct 7, 2014
3/5 100% Giovanni's Island " There are moments of real beauty: the characters in the foreground may be standard big-eyed anime figures, but the backdrops are painterly and immersive. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Oct 7, 2014
4/5 70% Gone Too Far! " Low-key, low-budget, high-intelligence, this is precisely the kind of film London ought to be producing. " ‐ Time Out

2/5 No Score Yet Situation amoureuse: C'est compliqué (2014) " Take a particularly unedifying example of the modern mainstream romcom, stick it in a cultural blender with those old 'Papa! Nicole!' Renault ads and you've got this stultifyingly self-satisfied French comedy. " ‐ Time Out

Posted Aug 19, 2014
2/5 20% 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 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 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 88% 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
