3/5 70% 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 77% 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 77% 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 39% 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 40% 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 77% 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 73% 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
3/5 100% Last Passenger (2014) " Stays on the rails thanks to strong performances, snappy dialogue and a relentless pace." — Time Out
Posted Oct 15, 2013
2/5 49% Escape Plan (2013) " These two enormously watchable old-school heroes deserve better." — Time Out
Posted Oct 15, 2013
4/5 83% Prince Avalanche (2013) " One of the most intriguing and thoughtful American films of the year." — Time Out
Posted Oct 15, 2013
3/5 80% All Cheerleaders Die " There's plenty to enjoy - smart one-liners, nifty shocks and one truly unsettling confrontation in a cemetery - but nothing to give Joss Whedon a run for his money" — Time Out
Posted Oct 10, 2013
2/5 80% Hide Your Smiling Faces (2014) " A self-serious, obviously heartfelt mood-piece which would have benefited from a bit more clarity and a lot less drifty, indie-by-numbers vagueness" — Time Out
Posted Oct 10, 2013
3/5 100% Gore Vidal: The United States Of Amnesia " 'United States of Amnesia' comes not to bury Vidal but to praise him right to the rafters" — Time Out
Posted Oct 10, 2013
2/5 80% Of Good Report " An ugly, nihilistic film, striking on the surface but empty underneath" — Time Out
Posted Oct 10, 2013
4/5 83% The Punk Singer (2013) " This is a woman who has been through hell and come out kicking, and the result is as much a celebration as it is a documentary" — Time Out
Posted Oct 10, 2013
4/5 86% Computer Chess (2013) " A supremely intelligent, beautifully constructed film, interweaving comedy and character, satire and subtext" — Time Out
Posted Oct 10, 2013
1/5 31% Adore (2013) " With its soap-operatic performances, bonkbuster plotline and sparkling seafront setting, all 'Adore' really lacks is a cameo from Alf Stewart" — Time Out
Posted Oct 10, 2013
3/5 98% Starred Up (2014) " For the most part this is furiously compelling stuff, convincingly mounted and superbly acted" — Time Out
Posted Oct 10, 2013
4/5 100% We Are the Best! (2014) " A joyous celebration of youth, friendship and rebellion" — Time Out
Posted Oct 10, 2013
3/5 85% The Congress (2014) " Ari Folman takes a determined stride into the past with this dizzying, disjointed, always fascinating live action-animation hybrid" — Time Out
Posted Oct 10, 2013
3/5 70% V/H/S/2 (2013) " There's only so much shakycam and shrieking a person can stomach in one go." — Time Out
Posted Oct 8, 2013
3/5 93% For Those In Peril " As a portrait of encroaching mental illness, For Those in Peril works superbly." — Time Out
Posted Oct 1, 2013
3/5 73% Forget Me Not (2011) " Ambitious it ain't, but Forget Me Not is a modest, memorable and rather moving slice of DIY cinema." — Time Out
Posted Sep 25, 2013
3/5 85% Hawking (2013) " The focus is on Hawking's scientific achievements and celebrity status at the expense of much emotional content, but it's hardly fair to expect a warts-and-all portrait" — Time Out
Posted Sep 17, 2013
3/5 51% White House Down (2013) " If all you're after is a pair of mismatched heroes wisecracking their way through a series of explosive, well-mounted set pieces, look no further." — Time Out
Posted Sep 10, 2013
4/5 86% The Great Hip Hop Hoax (2013) " The hoax may have fallen flat, but the insights Boyd and Bain's story offers into creativity, commerce, obsession and insanity are unique and unmissable." — Time Out
Posted Sep 4, 2013
2/5 58% Riddick (2013) " It's flavourless: the aliens are unscary and easily despatched, Vin's too silent to be interesting, and the other characters are either dull or offensive." — Time Out
Posted Sep 4, 2013
4/5 97% Gravity (2013) " This isn't just the best-looking film of the year, it's one of the most awe-inspiring achievements in the history of special-effects cinema." — Time Out
Posted Sep 4, 2013
3/5 30% Hammer Of The Gods (2013) " It's hardly high art, but for a cheapjack homegrown action flick this is surprisingly solid." — Time Out
Posted Aug 27, 2013
5/5 85% Bonjour Tristesse (1958) " The final shot is one of the most convincingly grief-stricken in cinema." — Time Out
Posted Aug 27, 2013
3/5 49% Pain & Gain (2013) " The first hour may be Bay's career high point: it's fast, freaky, gloriously tasteless and startlingly pointed in its attacks on western insecurity, shallowness and greed." — Time Out
