The Falling (2015)
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
The Emperor's New Clothes (2015)
The Good Lie (2014)
Stonehearst Asylum (2014)
"At best it's hammy, Hammer-ish fun, although it has none of the tension of Brad Anderson's underappreciated potboiler The Call, and none of the wit of The Ninth Configuration, which remains the best screen tale of lunatics taking over an asylum. "
Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (2015)
Child 44 (2015)
"With its small-town atmospherics, a juicy supporting cast of character players, plus Addison Timlin's personable, plucky "final girl", this Town is pulled off with polished, enjoyable brashness ... "
A Little Chaos (2015)
The Last 5 Years (2015)
"It's a film to bring tears to the eyes of a cynic - in fact, a cynic might relish it more than anyone, since it's the counterpointing of exuberance with unashamed bleakness that makes The Last Five Years so rich. "
Dark Horse (2016)
The Salvation (2015)
Force Majeure (2014)
"The acting is impeccably controlled, with leads Kuhnke and Kongsli sympathetically establishing the genteel, only slightly self-satisfied blandness of their characters, then tracing the cracks that spread in their makeup. "
Woman in Gold (2015)
"It won't do the film any harm at the box office that Helen Mirren twinkles indomitably. She's as good as ever, but really - of all the things you want to see Dame Helen doing indomitably, twinkling isn't among them. "
Good Kill (2015)
Lost River (2015)
Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck (2015)
"The argument for Cobain's brilliance never quite convinces until towards the end, with his MTV Unplugged performance, in which a whole new compelling register to his talent emerges - too late for the film, and alas, for the singer himself. "
John Wick (2014)
Blade Runner (The Final Cut) (2007)
"Ford, with his Star Wars cachet, was Blade Runner's top-line draw, but it's Hauer's movie all the way, his shimmering "replicant" providing the tonal touchstone for Ridley Scott's severally reworked masterpiece. "
The Dark Horse (2016)
"At the centre of it is Cliff Curtis, best known internationally for his supporting role in Whale Rider, who dominates the screen as the mercurial Gen. It's a breathtaking performance, note perfect in every gesture, mesmerising in its conviction. "
The Water Diviner (2015)
"While the heartless Brit caricatures may be an accepted genre staple, the smouldering cultural exchanges between a fiftysomething Oz farmer and a winsome Turkish hotelier push this from old-fashioned melodrama into modern-day mush. "
The DUFF (2015)
Furious 7 (2015)
While We're Young (2015)
Get Hard (2015)
The Face Of An Angel (2015)
"While the central thesis, that truth can only be told through fiction, is sound ("real truth and justice" having become "just a popularity contest"), this remains too clumsily schematic to get beneath the surface of its subject. "
Robot Overlords (2015)
"Director Jon Wright, who directed the rambunctious monster-movie Grabbers, makes the most of his limited resources, imbuing the action with an oddly endearing sense of string-and-glue DIY youthfulness. "
Seventh Son (2015)
"The live-action sequences, in which Antonio Banderas chews the pirate scenery, may not live up to the Looney Tunes madness of the cartoons, but for sheer head-scrambling craziness this is hard to beat. "
Wild Tales (2015)
The Signal (2014)
Wild Card (2015)
"Dorval and Clément are both exceptional, their brilliantly controlled performances contrasting with the explosive energy of rising star Pilon, who looks set to burst out of the screen and into the auditorium. "
The Voices (2015)
"Schwentke cranks up the action enough to keep us distracted, with well-oiled scenes of renegades jumping freight trains, and simulated cliffhangers involving flying fiery buildings offering several edge-of-your-seat moments. "
The Gunman (2015)
