Furious 7 (2015)

" This film isn't taking itself too seriously, and it certainly doesn't expect us to. "

Altman (2014)

" It's a warm and insightful profile of the man and his movies that inevitably leaves you wanting to revisit some of his classics, or watch them for the very first time. "

Kidnapping Mr. Heineken (2015)

" Anthony Hopkins adds a nice dose of screen presence as the titular Mr Heineken, but it's hard not to feel that this victim deserved to be at the centre of a more interesting crime. "

Nånting måste gå sönder (Something Must Break) ()

" Something Must Break falls over itself at every turn and, eventually, collapses under its own emotional weight. "

Get Hard (2015)

" In this occasionally brilliant, if somewhat uneven, showcase of speedy plotting and even speedier improvisation, Hart and Ferrell's chemistry is such that it seems certain to pair them up in the future. "

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water (2015)

" For the most part, Sponge Out of Water provides decent-sized doses of wacky animated fun; it's packed full of hilarious one-liners, pop culture references and colourful characters that should keep both adults and kids entertained. "

The Signal (2014)

" The Signal might seem like just another entry for the ongoing pile of lo-fi, stargazing fare, but a few unexpected virtues help it resonate more than most. "

Robot Overlords ()

" Robot Overlords feels like yet another busted franchise pilot in search of an audience. It's too brash for families, too babyish and obvious for teens. "

Dior and I (2015)

" A film that favours a subtle portrait of the demands of the creative process over scandal-sniffing or melodrama. "

The Face Of An Angel ()

" You can sense the director's struggle here, wrestling with how to take on such a story. Like Thomas, you suspect he started out with a very different film in mind; the problem is, what he's ended up with is a mixed bag. "

Cinderella (2015)

Home (2015)

The Tale of the Princess Kaguya (2014)

" This enchanting, admirable fable will elicit exuberant joy and great sadness due to the fact that it both celebrates women and mourns the limitations of their life under patriarchy. "

The Gunman (2015)

Insurgent (2015)

The Voices (2015)

" Satrapi's bold, bright and entertaining creation is laced with a pitch-black, sometimes truly sick sense of humour; it's wrong on many levels but that's also what makes it so right. "

My Name Is Salt ()

Chappie (2015)

" This admirable misfire is often endearing and Chappie is creatively designed and feels real, but an unsophisticated approach to its subject matter combined with the slight characterisations edges it perilously close to the scrapheap. "

Unfinished Business (2015)

" Packed with montages and non-sequiturs, this is a weird-ass business comedy that still manages to pack a tiny emotional sucker punch in the end. "

Appropriate Behavior (2015)

" Appropriate Behaviour is a confident and witty debut about finding yourself and fitting in that knows exactly what it wants to say. Akhavan is undoubtedly one to watch. "

Kill the Messenger (2014)

" Part political exposé, part character study, Kill the Messenger feels too much like a polemic, and too little like a human drama, failing to entertain as well as it informs. "

Life of Riley (2014)

" There is such tender conviction in the performances and such easy assurance in the flowing camerawork and editing that you are obliged to concentrate even more fully on the substance rather than the style. "

Jauja (2015)

" A ponderously paced but artistically sure journey; it's a film that finds strength in the universality of its ideas and its spiritual dimension, one that's enlivened by instantly iconic imagery and a keen sense of the strange. "

Catch Me Daddy ()
