The Lunchbox (2014)

"Somewhere in [its] moments of joy, lies the film's optimistic message about life, and how it should be lived. Which sounds syrupy, but it's far from it. It's magical."

Rio 2 (2014)

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014)

"I didn't get into either set of characters in this... The apes or the humans. The script is straight from how to write a blockbuster screenwriting course, I thought."

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014)

"What a wonderful world to lose yourself in for two hours and could it be possible that thanks to Andy Serkis's performance, I have a crush on an ape?"

How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)

"I think that's what's wrong with this. The minor characters don't emerge from this at all. I'm hard pressed to discern one from the other. "

Maleficent (2014)

"Giant holes in the plot are papered over by Janet McTeer's earnest narration, improbabilities abound, and it all seems longer than it actually is"

Beyond the Edge (2014)

"Matthew Metcalfe as co-writer/producer and Leanne Pooley as co-writer/director have created a tense, detailed account of a history-making expedition that is riveting and informative, it's absolutely fascinating."

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

Divergent (2014)

"Really the film is so intent on setting things up for, presumably, subsequent films that it forgets to be entertaining and involving in its own right, I think, and so I found this going over my head. I wasn't really interested in all of this."

Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014)

"It's a pleasant, often amusing, family film with lots of kid-friendly jokes and puns but also plenty of references that will go over the heads of the smaller members of the audience."
