Mother's Day (2012)

"It's not hard to see the hand of director Darren Lynn Bousman at work here. Having directed three of the Saw sequels, he knows his way around the infliction of pain."

The Hangover Part II (2011)

"The more rational characters have lost any redeeming qualities and this makes the film hard to watch - for all the wrong reasons. "

Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules (2011)

"It is a bit of a stretch at an hour and forty, but nonetheless this is great fun and a strong opener for the summer's family movie season."

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)

Attack the Block (2011)

"This has the smarts of the best sci-fi and the action to go with it: It's Aliens meets Assault On Precinct 13."

Take Me Home Tonight (2011)

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)

"This is more like the fun original, with jokes hitting the mark. It breaths new life into the Caribbean series, but even Captain Jack's attraction cannot be eternal. Can it?"

Water for Elephants (2011)

"A visual treat and a fascinating look at circus life in a bygone era. If only this were a little more memorable."

Hanna (2011)

"Wright has created an adrenaline-fuelled, modern-day fairytale that you will want to see again Hanna-gain."

Cedar Rapids (2011)

"While never getting bogged down in the moral question of whether Tim needed to see a world outside his happy bubble, this film has enough laughs to keep it going."

Thor (2011)

Your Highness (2011)

"Your Highness has been compared to such cinematic disasters as Meet The Spartans. It's far better than that but, the sad thing is, it could also have been so much more."

Mars Needs Moms (2011)

Hop (2011)

"Marsden has charisma to spare and is clearly game for the many pratfalls, but the more fantastical AND entirely animated sections of the film set in the factory are far superior."

The Eagle (2011)

A Turtle's Tale: Sammy's Adventures (2012)

You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (2010)

Rango (2011)

"Gore Verbinski has created a truly left field, oddball, hilarious film that again, like Toy Story 3, proves animation is today's most exciting cinema form."

The Fighter (2010)

"A movie with both brains and brawn and a knockout performance from Bale, The Fighter takes a familiar rags-to-riches story and delivers a feelgood hit."

How Do You Know (2010)

"For the most part, this story of trying to find out how you know you are in love is so slow and laborious you'll wish they'd just flip a coin and be done with it."

Black Swan (2010)

"This will keep your mind spinning long after the final pirouette - and is far more exciting than you'd expect a movie about a bonkers ballerina might be."

The Dilemma (2011)

"Yes, there are a handful of interesting insights into friendship but when the film aims for funny it falls flat and the faltering romance between Vaughn and Connelly is never developed nearly enough to make us care."

Conviction (2010)

"While script, pacing and direction all give this the feel of a TV movie, it's the performances that elevate it."

The Green Hornet (2011)

"Michel Gondry directs and while there's little of his usual surreal flair there are moments when he puts his mark on the explosive mayhem, giving it the style of a live-action Looney Toons cartoon."
