Haywire (2012)

"Those who like their action simple and straight-forward may find themselves disappointed in Haywire. But those who want something that's clever and unique whilst still managing to contain plenty of action, then you should make the effort to check this out"

21 Jump Street (2012)

"The story is as clichéd as the majority of Hollywood movies can get. Hell, even the poster has the stars pull a pose that's been done a million times before. So it's pretty amazing that 21 Jump Street turns out to be bloody brilliant."

Ted (2012)

"Those who detest Family Guy will not be converted but fans will surely lap up a film that - whilst sometimes flawed - is rude, crude and often very funny."

Looper (2012)

"While it sometimes feels like it's trying to do much, Looper manages to be a creditable and exciting sci-fi flick that homages the past while carving out a unique identity."

Jaws (1975)

"It's easy to forget just how simply amazing Steven Spielberg's film is. From a technical standpoint, it's a whirlwind of creativity and clever ideas. From an entertainment standpoint it's an exhilarating and often terrifying thriller."

The Hunger Games (2012)

"There's no doubt that there are lots of elements here that have been seen before but this still manages to carve enough of an identity for itself to be intriguing, exciting and - on the odd occasion - compelling."

Skyfall (2012)

"As a blockbuster film, Skyfall is a skilfully executed film that rightfully takes its place amongst the Avengers and Dark Knights of 2012 - and is arguably even better than those two cinematic behemoths."

Melancholia (2011)

"For all his bluff and bluster, Lars Von Trier is often remarkably adept at examining the human condition and Melancholia is no exception"

The Adjustment Bureau (2011)

"There are plenty of great ideas throughout the film with determinism and the idea of free will all given some interesting twists, though it is sometimes muddled and preachy"

Source Code (2011)

"Source Code is genuinely compelling and - whilst not always successful - remains a fine example of an intelligent, modern sci-fi thriller. "

Warrior (2011)

"Warrior makes a creditable attempt at expanding the scope of the MMA films - and whilst not always successful - the powerful performances should keep many people happy"

Real Steel (2011)

"A film that feels as if it's been written by a five-year-old who's been allowed to create it as some sort of bizarre birthday present this is undemanding all the way"
