News of the World
The Firm (2009)
" This umpteenth take on the same old story is a pretty polished effort from writer-director Nick Love, you need a lot more than a snazzy soundtrack and Jimmy Savile's tracksuit collection to make it worth an unqualified thumbs-up. "
Julie & Julia (2009)
Fish Tank (2010)
" Adventureland would love to be "this generation's Ferris Bueller". But if you set your teen movie an entire generation ago, it's not going to be this generation's anything. Instead it's going to be a challenge-free nostalgia binge - at best. "
Sorority Row (2009)
" It's a five-star one-star movie, combining style and flair with almost no substance whatsoever. As such, it deserves a solid three stars and a hearty thumbs up as this week's most entertaining mainstream release. "
Dorian Gray (2009)
" Bad panto with t**s. Firth - all dodgy 'tache and frantic eyebrows - has got the sexual allure of a man who runs a swingers' club in Surbiton. And Ben Barnes is so flat as Dorian, I had to double-check he wasn't playing the painting. "
Big River Man (2009)
District 9 (2009)
500 Days of Summer (2009)
Mesrine: Public Enemy #1 (2010)
The Hurt Locker (2009)
" This electrifying thriller about a US Army bomb disposal squad working in Baghdad isn't just one of the best films of 2009. It is the first film that tackles the Iraq War head on, and does justice to the incredible bravery of the troops serving there. "
Funny People (2009)
Broken Embraces (2009)
I Love You Beth Cooper (2009)
" I hate you, I Love You, Beth Cooper. I hate you because you couldn't be any more half-hearted if you'd just had half your heart chopped out in a half-heart-ectomy by a surgeon who couldn't really be bothered doing it. "

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)
" G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobblers, as it must now be known, is a 118-minute war crime that does for the army what Steve Martin's Inspector Clouseau did for the French police force - except with more fake-looking explosions. "

Public Enemies (2009)
" It took Nick Moran the best part of 12 years to get this made. And the end result's screamingly energetic, wildly uneven, gay as a goose and at times, utter genius. As a Joe Meek biopic, it's perfect. "
