Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
" Marvel consistently puts out entertaining films which work towards a common goal - which is why it's mystifying that Avengers: Age of Ultron, nominally the best entry in phase two, is only mildly entertaining by comparison. "
While We're Young (2015)
The Age of Adaline (2015)
The Gunman (2015)
" There is a baseline of filmmaking competence to The Gunman that rescues it from the gutter, but despite its star power it doesn't have a strong enough script or charismatic enough lead to carry it over the line into entertainment. "
The Longest Ride (2015)
The Book of Life (2014)
The DUFF (2015)
Shaun the Sheep (2015)
Love Is Strange (2014)
" The Divergent Series: Insurgent is the logical successor to The Hunger Games, in that it features a female lead in a dystopian future America. It would be helpful if The Divergent Series: Insurgent was a good film. "
Furious 7 (2015)
" Home cunningly attempts to achieve that always-expected animated feat of being everything to everyone, but what it really proves -- with more authenticity than the content itself can muster -- is just how infrequently that can be done. "
Top Five (2014)
Run All Night (2015)
Lucky Them (2014)
" Griffiths helms the feature with low-key fondness and a lived-in atmosphere, the camera caressing the Seattle spaces the story calls home, and lingering lovingly over the more rural places Ellie and Charlie venture to. "
Jupiter Ascending (2015)

" Ultimately, Chef is a comfort food film. There's room in this world for all sorts movies, and not all of them have to be challenging. There's nothing difficult about Chef, but that doesn't stop it from being worth the tasting. "
" As a character study, Gloria is a rare pleasure. There's no quiet heroism in just living day to day, but there's definitely something admirable in bringing such a fully formed woman to the screen, naked and free to dance all she wants. "
The LEGO Movie (2014)
" [The Lego Movie hits] the sweet spot between adults who grew up with Lego and children who love Lego, and carefully ignoring the irony of such an overtly branded indictment of corporate strangulation of creativity. "
The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
" Once again, Anderson has managed to make an affecting, funny movie; it may be more melancholy than most, but bittersweet love is love nonetheless, and The Grand Budapest Hotel is worth visiting multiple times. "
The Secret World of Arrietty (2012)
" If you have a young person in your life, make sure you take them to see this film; Arrietty has more style and substance than the majority of children's films out there. It's a film about little people, but it has a lot of heart. "
" Whilst the denouement is a little rushed, not meeting the exceptional standards established in the first two thirds of the film, the deconstruction of the other world is fascinating as it unravels in front of your eyes. "
The Little Death (2015)
Gone Girl (2014)
The Conjuring (2013)
" Rare is the feat that both as well as All This Mayhem achieves, however: transcending whatever level of care or lack thereof the viewer has for the central activity to elicit a deep, destroying investment in the events dissected and figures immortalised. "
Winter's Tale (2014)
" A fairy tale concept enlivened with average special effects, a plight predicated upon purportedly epic affection rendered with the most rote and unearned of emotion, and a tale supposedly larger-than-life but lacking in enthusiasm or investment. "
Labor Day (2014)
Blue Is The Warmest Color (2013)
