Mirror Mirror (2012)

"Singh's visuals are - as always - impressive and thanks to a better script this is a far more enjoyable experience than his recent Immortals."

Titanic (1997)

"Titanic is a movie that has to be seen on the big screen and will enchant a new generation of fans. A must-see 3D experience."

The Island President (2012)

"Shenk would have been better off spending time with the people at risk of flooding rather than filming the diplomats in their suits at the Copenhagen Climate Summit."

Into The Abyss (2011)

"The film trawls the bottomless depth of hopeless criminals as much as it examines the "correctional" system."

StreetDance 2 (2014)

"If streetdance is your thing, this will go down a treat."

Wrath of the Titans (2012)

"The film is better than the first (not a difficult achievement), especially the 3D. But flashy visuals do not a good movie make and the script is rubbish."

The Pirates! Band of Misfits (2012)

"With its mix of ingenious chase sequences, hilarious fights and jokes, Pirates! is a real gem and not to be missed."

Four Horsemen ()

"The truth is, The Four Horsemen is really just another documentary digging over the financial collapse."

The Kid with a Bike (2012)

"Beyond Samantha's hard-to-fathom loyalty, many of the plot twists are predictable and contrived."

Wild Bill (2013)

"Gripping, intense and with a razor-sharp wit, this marks Fletcher as one to watch."

Act of Valor (2012)

"It's like the game Call Of Duty, with worse acting and writing."

The Hunger Games (2012)

"At more than two hours, the film takes its time in getting to the action but is all the better for it."

Once Upon a Time in Anatolia (2012)

"Ceylan has planted the murder genre in a new and reflective spot."

In Darkness (2012)

"It makes for an incredibly turbulent watch where the horrors of the Nazis are put under the spotlight."

21 Jump Street (2012)

"Filthy, sweary, sweet and very funny all at the same time."

We Bought a Zoo (2011)

"Superficially very charming, this lacks depth but is still a pleasant and moving distraction."

Contraband (2012)

"Ultimately, it's not going to win any awards for originality but this is an entertaining crime thriller nonetheless."

Payback Season ()

"Adam has talent, but he'll need superior material to maintain his rise."

Cleanskin (2012)

"As if we don't have enough gullible folk believing 7/7 and 9/11 conspiracy theories already, this poor thriller comes along to popularise the paranoia."

Trishna (2012)

"Winterbottom has a gift for drawing natural performances from his stars."

The Raven (2012)

"McTeigue's film inhabits a middle ground of being too morose for a crowd-pleaser in the style of Sherlock Holmes yet not dark enough for those wanting a seriously disturbing serial killer pic."

John Carter (2012)

"Kitsch...makes for an excellent hero, even managing to make a loincloth look like this year's must-have item."

Bel Ami (2012)

"Despite a strong cast, Bel Ami fails to make a lasting impression - other than to leave you wondering if you've been watching a costume drama or a comic farce."

Carancho (2011)

Day of the Falcon (2013)

"It would be easy to laugh off if it wasn't so clearly a comment on historical reality."

Rampart (2012)

"The always present Harrelson gives one of his best performances - all bravado on the outside and self doubt on the inside."

Deviation ()

"Should be an edge-of-the-seat thrill ride, but amounts to an unintentionally funny B movie, with Dyer mugging to camera and Walton simpering next to him."

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2012)

"This is certainly a harmless and whimsical look at old age - but sadly the film lacks any real substance."

Safe House (2012)

The Woman in the Fifth (2012)

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2012)

"It would have been nice to have seen someone brave enough to release a violent, scary, 18-rated Ghost Rider movie. They had the character, the actor and the directors to do it. Such a shame they didn't."

Man on a Ledge (2012)

"It's a long way down from starring in the biggest box office hit ever and Avatar's Sam Worthington is plummeting."

Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011)

J. Edgar (2011)

"Without enough on-screen drama this can sometimes feel like a bum-numbing slog but it provides insight into Hoover's career, brought to life by a stunning DiCaprio."

Haywire (2012)

War Horse (2011)

"After the ho-hum that was Tintin, this serves as a reminder of why Spielberg is considered one of the great visionary storytellers."
