I'm Still Here (2010)

"If you like watching movie stars embarrass themselves for your amusement and for no point whatsoever, I'm Still Here is not a bad way to go." EDIT

The Kid (2010)

"Raw, absorbing and packing a powerful punch, The Kid marks Moran as a serious contender."

The Other Guys (2010)

"All we can report is that half the audience were rolling in the aisles while the rest looked like the voluntarily childless trapped in a kindergarten."

Night of the Demons (2010)

Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010)

"Been there, done that, pass the console."

The Runaways (2010)

"Okay, so it's not quite as rock'n'roll as what Garbage's Shirley Manson did to her boyfriend's corn flakes. But give the girls a chance, man."

Tamara Drewe (2010)

"The best British comedy of the year? It can't be far off." EDIT

Going the Distance (2010)

"A feelgood breeze kept fresh by winning performances, it's worth going the extra mile for."

Why Did I Get Married Too (2010)

"Basically, it's Barbershop with bigger bucks."

Bonded By Blood (2011)

"There's no hiding the fact that Bonded By Blood is ultimately pretty anaemic, giving no further insight into an already over-exposed incident."

Chris Prince

Splintered (2012)

"Reference points from the legend of the Beast of Bodmin, movie werewolf classics to tabloid tales of Catholic child abuse are ticked off in debut director Simoen Halligan's effective yarn." EDIT

22 Bullets (2013)

"There are few surprises but the blood-spattered action is handled with aplomb and Reno manages to keep a straight face when obliged to deliver the occasional lecture on morality."

Posted Sep 1, 2010

Tim Evans

The Last Exorcism (2010)

"The finale may come out of nowhere -- you probably won't see it coming -- but this can (un) happily join The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity as superior horror."

Tim Evans

Jonah Hex (2010)

"There's plenty of bangs for your buck -- check out the dynamite-heavy ambush of a steam locomotive in the opening sequence."

Dinner for Schmucks (2010)

"You'd think you'd have the basis for a half-decent comedy. You'd be wrong."

Posted Sep 1, 2010

Tim Evans

Dog Pound (2013)

"Tough, confrontational and thought-provoking cinema that, like its protagonists, deserves to get a fair chance on its release."

Posted Aug 26, 2010

Chris Prince

Diary of a Wimpy Kid (2010)

"While it appears all-too-obvious, there's an awful lot going on with fully filled out characters abrasively rubbing along."

Tim Evans

Grown Ups (2010)

"Any film that causes you to reappraise the awfulness of Couples Retreat has to be pretty bad."

The Girl Who Played with Fire (Flickan som lekte med elden) (2010)

"Until she kicks the hornets' nest, The Girl Who Played With Fire will keep you on your toes like a Taser to the wedding tackle."

The Last Seven (2014)

"Clunky exposition and some decidedly wonky acting (Hassan's the best thing about it) slowly bleed the lifeblood out of a leaky plot."

Tim Evans

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)

"An instant zeitgeist classic and proud bearer of yet another Wright-icised genre, as undoubtedly the best King-Kong-Bob-Omb-Rom-Com you're ever likely to see."

Posted Aug 26, 2010

Matt Risley

25 62%

Salt (2010)

"Jolie is pretty much perfect for this sort of role, virtually wordlessly despatching assassins with machine guns, grenades, fists and -- in one particularly wince-inducing scene -- with a taser."

The Expendables (2010)

"If you only see one action movie this year, see The Expendables -- twice."

The Last Airbender (2010)

"A movie that's as thick as the earth, as enraging as fire, and about as watery and windy as a giant cinematic wet fart."

The Secret in Their Eyes (El Secreto de Sus Ojos) (2010)

"It's already won awards, and received rave reviews, so it's no secret; El Secreto de sus Ojos is one of the best thrillers released for years."

Undertow (2010)

"Magical realism at its most entrancing."

Step Up 3 (2010)

"This is all about the moves and on that score Step Up 3D is BFAB - blatant fun; almost brilliant."

Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore (2010)

"A boring, terrible looking cinematic mess on the carpet threatening the series for good."

Matt Risley

Knight & Day (2010)

"Taken as the live action cartoon it is, Knight And Day will deliver enough generic fun to see you through your popcorn."

Beautiful Kate (2009)

"Not the easiest of watches but remains compelling thanks to Mendelsohn's sure evocation of a man whose life has been buffeted by the past."

Down Terrace (2010)

"Barking and bittersweet, it's a bit tasty."

Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life (2011)

"As the adult Gainsbourg, Elmosnino captures all the twitches of the lover, the singer, and the fragile soul." EDIT

The A-Team (2010)

"It's almost as if an internet fan club wrote a script then hired a screenwriter to add serious movie stuff like character arcs."

Rich Phippen

The Karate Kid (2010)

"This is a remake, pure and simple. And remakes need to be very, very good to justify their existence..."

City Island (2010)

"Sweet and satisfying."

Splice (2010)

"Natali's direction and vision is as nuanced as the story's tone, and while the plot beats are familiar to genre fans, Splice manages to evolve the genre to new heights."

The Rebound (2009)

"Zeta-Jones is always fun when she's bad, but she still hasn't found the right leading man to bring out her cuddly side."

Posted Jul 22, 2010

Elliott Noble

Rough Aunties (2008)

"Both shocking and thought-provoking, this -- although sometimes dragging -- develops to more than just a predictable story of child abuse and selfless care."

Will Entwhistle

Bluebeard (2010)

"Breillat's simplistic, spare approach pays dividends, particularly harnessed to sympathetic playing from the two girls, particularly Creton."

Posted Jul 15, 2010

Tim Evans

The Concert (Le concert) (2010)

"It's impossible not to be swept along by the film's huge emotional punch that still makes room for a good three or four laugh-out-loud gags."

Posted Jul 15, 2010

Rob Daniel

Mega Piranha (2010)

"Played straight, it's initially amusing but swiftly outstays its welcome as the piranhas develop the ability to fly like fanged double decker buses and the whole caboodly tries just a bit too hard to be knowing."

Posted Jul 15, 2010

Tim Evans

Toy Story 3 (2010)

"A fitting, poignant close to the series, and -- thankfully -- entertaining not only for kids of all ages, but people of all ages too."

Matt Risley

Inception (2010)

"It was a brave move to follow The Dark Knight, one of the biggest hits of all time, with something so incredibly complex, but Nolan can relax -- it's worked like a dream."

Gangster's Paradise: Jerusalema (2010)

"It's a rich portrait made all the more worrying by apparently being based on actual events."

Leaving (Partir) (2010)

"It's a consummate performance from one of the finest actors of any gender of any generation in any language. You'd be happy to see her in any affair."
