Anonymous (2011)

"Anonymous is earnest, high-camp and regularly ridiculous, but it's also a fun and gripping adventure for lovers of stagecraft or Tudor mystery. "

In Time (2011)

"Faults aside, In Time is a great sci-fi yarn of our times. "

Drive (2011)

"What Drive is trying to do is very clear, but clear intent doesn't forgive a film that's mostly flat. "

Midnight in Paris (2011)

"It's not a bad film -- it just could have been a lot better. "

The Three Musketeers (2011)

"Check your sense of reality at the door and enjoy the lavish costumes, nonstop action and well-rendered sets."

Contagion (2011)

"Contagion presents a frightening reality, and leaves you with something to think about. "

Red State (2011)

"Red State is a bit unpolished - a timestamp appears just once and completely without reason, for instance - but the film has bite and purpose, and it's gripping to watch."

The Cup (2012)

"The Melbourne Cup captures the public imagination, but unfortunately the same can't be said for this film, which in the end, finishes a few lengths short. "

What's Your Number? (2011)

"Like recent rom-com Friends with Benefits, it's the chemistry of the two leads that keeps it afloat. They just deserve better material to flirt around. "

Footloose (2011)

"Nothing about this remake challenges the original. What it does do is introduce a new generation to a great story with heart and there really can't be anything wrong with that. "

Real Steel (2011)

"I was left with an uncomfortable feeling that Real Steel is stranded somewhere between a children's film and a violent action film."

Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011)

"A modern, adult story that's both uproariously funny and touchingly real. "

Monte Carlo (2011)

"It's a harmless yarn that's as buttery as popcorn and as sweet as a choc top. And who doesn't like a trip to the candy bar via Europe? "

Abduction (2011)

"Two reasons not to go see Abduction: first, every screening is guaranteed to be jam-packed with rabid girls squealing every time its star, Twilight's Taylor Lautner is on screen. Second: it's just not a good movie. "

The Smurfs (2011)

"Takes the 80s favourite kids' cartoon and embellishes it with special effects, New York cliches and gutter humour so that the end result is a shiny but shallow copy of all that was great about the original TV series."

Zookeeper (2011)

"With the exception of some nice moments, mainly due to Kevin James' wholesome and lovable lead, Zookeeper is a flop and should be watched at your own peril. "

The Change-Up (2011)

"The Change-Up mines a tired formula for new laughs, making it the perfect movie for a night out with the guys."

Chalet Girl (2011)

"Chalet Girl is what it says on the label - feel-good, unpretentious, snowbound fun. "

One Day (2011)

"What should've been an epic romance, a challenger to The Notebook, becomes a melancholy, disconnected drama, despite the talent on display. " EDIT

The Help (2011)

"The acting, period detail and luminous cinematography make up for some of the over-sentimentalised moments. "

The Guard (2011)

"Delightfully dark, The Guard is the latest buddy comedy classic, and a must-see for fans of Hot Fuzz and In Bruges. "

Horrible Bosses (2011)

"No-holds-barred humour, an up-for-anything all-star cast and a fast, madcap energy make this one of the best comedies you'll see in 2011."

Cowboys & Aliens (2011)

"Unfortunately, Cowboys and Aliens takes itself way too seriously to really ignite. "

Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011)

"The biggest fault here is the premise itself. While not a direct remake, Rise covers similar ground to 1972's Conquest of the Planet of the Apes."

The Beaver (2011)

"Jodie Foster's The Beaver is a film about mental illness that, refreshingly, isn't like most films about mental illness. "
