"One can't help feel that without the magnificent Streep, The Iron Lady would be a forgettable TV movie."

Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked (2011)

"Only David Cross, as arch-enemy Ian Hawke, manages to wring a few laughs from the sodden script, but for those you have to listen to such Chipmunk teen speak as "totally adorbs" for 90 minutes."

Puss in Boots (2011)

"Puss In Boots is as good as the first Shrek and, at its best, touches on the genius of Shrek 2."

New Year's Eve (2011)

"In spite of the multi character element, New Year's Eve has virtually no discernible plot to speak of - just a mélange of badly scripted schmaltz that meanders back and forth with no real care."

Moneyball (2011)

"Fascinating, moving and very funny to boot, this will entertain both those who love the game and those who say: "It's just Rounders!" Brilliant."

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011)

"After the enjoyable previous instalment, to my mind the best in the series, director Bill Condon's film is a step backwards in quality."

Welcome to the Rileys (2010)

"Despite its indie sensibilities, under the surface it's a pure Hollywood heart that beats here."

The Rum Diary (2011)

"It's this romantic sub-plot and the film's strangely unsatisfactory climax that stop it being perfect."

Arthur Christmas (2011)

"A smart script - that sees kids asking why they can't find Santa's North Pole home on Google Earth - wrapped up in some nifty 3D visuals make this a highly enjoyable early Christmas present."

In Time (2011)

"Stylish and original but its confusing middle and overbearing moral message will have you looking at the time."

Tower Heist (2011)

"A shamelessly crowd-pleasing film that may not take comedy to new heights but does not need to when it's just very, very funny."

Contagion (2011)

"For the most part the star cast inject this with everything it needs to take root in your brain and have you edging away from anyone who coughs on the bus."

The Three Musketeers (2011)

Johnny English Reborn (2011)

"As an outright comedy this falls short but as an easy-to-watch, old-fashioned slice of British entertainment this is good solid family fun."

The Debt (2011)

"While the moral question about "doing the right thing" isn't entirely answered by the climax, this is still a superior thriller."

The Tree of Life (2011)

"As a film it's nothing if not bold - and the second half is the work of Malick The Genius - but if you decide to go, just don't expect a narrative."

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 (2011)

"I am a fan of both the books and films and it is sad to say goodbye to the boy wizard so many have grown up with. But at least he gets the send-off he deserves -- with a 3D blast of visual wizardry."
