2/5 67% 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 84% 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 91% 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 21% 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 85% 22 Jump Street (2014) " There's enough goodwill to balance out the clunky bits." — Time Out
Posted Jun 3, 2014
3/5 84% 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 74% 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 63% 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 90% 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 47% 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 47% Stalingrad (2014) " Protechnically impressive, but something important is missing: tension, originality and memorable characters." — Time Out
Posted Feb 18, 2014
3/5 49% 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
Posted Jan 7, 2014
3/5 33% The Harry Hill Movie " This has big laughs (if not nearly enough of them) and wild ideas - provided you're tuned into Hill's idiosyncratic brand of slyly subversive, surreally silly seaside slapstick." — Time Out
Posted Dec 20, 2013
3/5 91% 12 O'clock Boys (2014) " The film itself is a little too rough around the edges to fully engage. Fascinating subject, though." — Time Out
Posted Dec 19, 2013
4/5 76% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) " The Wolf of Wall Street plays modern tragedy as epic farce, reminding us just how much fun Scorsese can be when he's in a playful mood." — Time Out
Posted Dec 17, 2013
4/5 77% How To Make Money Selling Drugs (2013) " A thoughtful, intelligent examination of the US war on drugs." — Time Out
Posted Dec 17, 2013
3/5 75% Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) " Not the disaster some feared it might be, but neither is it the endlessly quotable, deliciously idiotic follow-on so many of us were optimistically anticipating." — Time Out
Posted Dec 17, 2013
1/5 72% Klown (2012) " A grim, desperately unfunny parade of dick jokes, masturbation jokes, dick jokes, paedophilia jokes, dick jokes, rape jokes, gay jokes and dick jokes" — Time Out
Posted Dec 2, 2013
2/5 42% Homefront (2013) " 'Homefront' just isn't the Southern-fried smackdown it should have been" — Time Out
Posted Dec 2, 2013
2/5 18% Love Tomorrow " This is tame, lifeless stuff, following the characters as they drift from bar to party, coffee shop to dance class." — Time Out
Posted Nov 5, 2013
3/5 94% Milius " With contributions from Coppola, Spielberg and Scorsese, the film does approach Milius with a certain reverence, but it can't disguise the fact that he's a troubling figure." — Time Out
Posted Oct 29, 2013
3/5 99% Short Term 12 (2013) " There's heart, soul and personality to burn in 'Short Term 12' ... But this is a film that, like many of its young characters, desperately needs to calm down." — Time Out
Posted Oct 29, 2013
3/5 65% Thor: The Dark World (2013) " Most of what worked in 'Thor' works again: Hiddleston is campy and treacherous, Hemsworth is puppy-dog keen and there's a nice line in knowing jokery." — Time Out
Posted Oct 29, 2013
1/5 42% Closed Circuit (2013) " Ropey performances, join-the-dots plotting and nail-shreddingly awful dialogue." — Time Out
Posted Oct 22, 2013
3/5 60% Ender's Game (2013) " Yet another intriguing, complex, strangely unlikeable big-budget experiment destined to thrill the fans and befuddle the rest of us." — Time Out
Posted Oct 22, 2013
3/5 84% Last Passenger (2014) " Stays on the rails thanks to strong performances, snappy dialogue and a relentless pace." — Time Out
