Step Up 3 (2010)

"Director Jon Chu is, to lesser acclaim, a modern day Busby Berkeley; he's a choreographer, not a storyteller."

Splice (2010)

"Natali [takes] his film down some dark and disturbing paths, and even if you're not overly keen about the destination, you have to commend him for daring to go there."

The Ghost Writer (2010)

"This lazily plotted and performed political snoozer has to be one of the most disappointing films I've seen all year."

Me and Orson Welles (2009)

"McKay is magnificent [as Welles]. Not for a moment did I doubt that this was the man who went on to make Citizen Kane. "

Killers (2010)

"Heigl and Kutcher's romance has about as much crackle as a bowl of soggy Rice Bubbles."

Inception (2010)

"And [Nolan] said, "let there be originality", and there was originality. He called it Inception and audiences and critics alike saw that it was good."

The Waiting City (2010)

"Living up to its name, The Waiting City rewards patience. The film's initial unevenness is remedied by a captivating second half full of heart."

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)

"I left the cinema feeling as though I deserved a t-shirt that read 'I survived the Eclipse'"

Toy Story 3 (2010)

"One sequence alone has more heart, humour, intellect and hair-raising thrills than most films - live-action or animated - have overall."

Knight & Day (2010)

"The opening mid-air shootout is edgy, funny and clouded in question-raising mystique. It's everything the film that follows is not."

Exit Through The Gift Shop (2010)

"Be it documentary or mockumentary, art of graffiti, there's no denying that Exit Through the Gift Shop is damn good cinema."

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010)

"Rejoice! Hollywood have, at long last, made a video game adaptation that is not complete tripe."

Robin Hood (2010)

"In director Ridley Scott's take [of Robin Hood], what was green is now grey, lively now lethargic and merry now miserable."

Letters to Juliet (2010)

"Diabetics steer clear; so awfully saccharine is the derivative romantic drama Letters to Juliet, it may induce a hyperglycemic coma."

Iron Man 2 (2010)

"Unambitiously [believes] that only way to improve on the original is to add more of everything. More heroes! More villains! More CGI! And more Robert Downey Jr.! Surprisingly, the result isn't all bad."

Harry Brown (2010)

"The moment Barber resorts to over-the-top violence as a means to an end, Harry Brown becomes an unintentional farce."

Hot Tub Time Machine (2010)

How to Train Your Dragon (2010)

"The most important message of [ How to Train Your Dragon] is from DreamWorks to their rivals Pixar. It simply reads, "We're baaaack.""

Clash of the Titans (2010)

Kick-Ass (2010)

"Kick-Ass is what Spider-Man would have looked like if it was directed by Quentin Tarantino using the cast of Spy Kids. In other words, pure awesome."

Cop Out (2010)

"Some of the jokes in [Cop Out] are so far beyond the realms of lame, you have to wonder whether it's intentional."

Alice in Wonderland (2010)

"The closest you'll get to absolute madness without being locked in a room with padded walls...a wondrous piece of escapism."

From Paris with Love (2010)

"Armed to the teeth with more action movie clichés than a Steven Seagal show reel. Yep, it has 'guilty pleasure' stamped all over it."

A Single Man (2009)

The Wolfman (2010)

"Johnston's direction sidesteps suspense to deliver a surplus of tactless, out-of-nowhere jump scares that are more irritating than frightening."

Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire (2009)

"Arriving in the wake of the awfully mawkish Invictus and the overbearingly bleak The Road, Precious succeeds because it strikes a balance between the two emotional extremes."

The Princess and the Frog (2009)

"It's likely that The Princess and the Frog will be remembered for being the first Disney animation to feature a black princess, rather than for being a great movie."

Daybreakers (2010)

"Yes, Daybreakers is another vampire film, but don't hold it against it. This is stuff Twilight fans have nightmares about..."

Law Abiding Citizen (2009)

"In another time and place, Law Abiding Citizen could have been an intelligent critique of a flawed criminal justice system. Instead, I present you Gerard Butler, ruthlessly hacking a guy into 25 little pieces."

Up in the Air (2009)

"Up in the Air is one of few movies to truly get with the times, and actually get it right."

Nowhere Boy (2010)

Coffin Rock (2009)

"Just off the beaten track from Wolf Creek and Cape Fear is Rupert Glasson's promising feature debut Coffin Rock; a must-see destination for deftly crafted thrills and chills."

Invictus (2009)

"Like the pseudo biopic on Mandela, the rugby half is both shallow and generic, qualities echoed by the horrendously mawkish theme song 'Colorblind' that is enough to make Invictus seem like a parody of an inspirational film."

The Lovely Bones (2009)

"A film that shines only in short, erratic bursts. It can be an emotional film, a disturbing film, a romantic film, a funny film and a breathtaking film, but never a seamless blend of each."

Avatar (2009)

The Road (2009)

Planet 51 (2009)

"I'm going to go out on a limb and say Planet 51 was written by a bunch of monkeys...who were trapped in a room with some typewriters. Surprisingly, the works of Shakespeare are the only texts they haven't blatantly ripped off."

Les beaux gosses (The French Kissers) (2009)

"Squeamishly forthright and deliberately rough-around-the-edges, Sattouf's film humorously captures the weird, wonderful and often humiliating stages of adolescence."

Where the Wild Things Are (2009)

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (2009)

The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009)

"There's a bit more meat on the bones of Meyer's story and less meandering schmaltz, but [...] it's still a gruelling endurance test for anyone with a Y chromosome."
