The Age (Australia)
"As the monsters are set free, and special effects mayhem starts to pile up, Goosebumps becomes an undifferentiated thrill ride, a slightly exhausting roll call that includes deadly garden gnomes, a teen werewolf, a giant mantis and a lot of slime. "
Cemetery of Splendor (2016)
"It is characteristically slow and measured, combining a profound sense of melancholy with a light touch, blurring the boundaries between waking and sleeping, dream and memory, past and present in the most relaxed, quotidian way. "
The 5th Wave (2016)
Point Break (2015)
Daddy's Home (2015)
Daddy's Home (2015)
The End Of The Tour (2015)
"Despite the depiction of rivalry and discomfort, its tone is not harsh; there's something restrained and carefully poignant about the film and the rueful reverence it displays for its central figure. "
Love the Coopers (2015)
Man Up (2015)
"Man Up is composed of scenes that tell us we're watching a romantic comedy: inopportune conversations, annoyed exchanges... embarrassing encounters, and speeches of romantic dedication made before a hushed crowd. "
5 to 7 (2015)
"There is an important and moving story at its heart, and strong central performances from Moore, Page and Shannon, but they're undermined, in the final stages, by a strange kind of rote efficiency in the way it is told. "
Casino Royale (2006)
Only The Dead (2015)
Mistress America (2015)
The Last Witch Hunter (2015)
Crimson Peak (2015)
"It's a busy but not entirely satisfying film, thankfully elevated by Hardy's performance, which goes past the usual technical trickery to create the palpable feeling of a shared identity trying to separate. "
"Director Anupam Sharma presides over a film bristling with supporting characters and plotlines of varying success: a melodramatic subplot involving Meera's former husband feels way out of place and references to sponsors are decidedly unsubtle. "
Miss You Already (2015)
Black Mass (2015)
"Black Mass too often plays like a tribute to previous crime films, particularly Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas, but while it cops the stylistic licks and the attitude, there's little of the telling detail or astute psychology. "
London Road ()
The Martian (2015)
"Jackman's theatrical charm helps tie together the many influences, but it's hard to be inspired by that familiar trope of the fated boy prophesied to change everything. The movie takes seriously concepts thoroughly satirised by The Lego Movie. "
"Kormakur creates a convincing sense of the physical environment, the intensity of the experience, the sound and physical impact of extreme weather. He can't do much to convey, however, the mystery and essence of what draws people to this endeavour. "
