Testament Of Youth ()

" Testament Of Youth won't convert those who are fundamentally opposed to British period dramas, but it is beautifully shot and elevated by a striking lead performance. "

The Fault In Our Stars (2014)

" The Fault In Our Stars is unlikely to win over the cynics, but Woodley has a smile that lights up the screen, and you believe in her even when the film's plausibility is stretched. "

The Face of Love (2014)

" The story's plausibility is stretched in places, but it is held together by Bening and Harris, both of whom are wholly convincing at all times. "

The Imitation Game (2014)

" The Imitation Game - aka The Great British Codebreak Off - is formulaic and predictable, but it is enjoyable nonetheless. "

Get On Up (2014)

" Get On Up hops between time periods in such a haphazard manner that it can't help but feel disjointed. Thankfully, though, Chadwick Boseman is outstanding in the lead role. "

The Drop (2014)

" A simmering crime drama that doubles as a melancholic character piece. And the award for the most adorable man-and-puppy double act goes to... "

Nativity 3: Dude Where's My Donkey? ()

" Everything about Nativity 3 feels amateurish and half-hearted, from the tiresome musical numbers to the casually preposterous plot. "

The Skeleton Twins (2014)

" The Skeleton Twins follows a fairly predictable trajectory, but it is littered with affecting moments and joyous sequences. "

Gone Girl (2014)

" The final third is too twisty for its own good, but on the whole Gone Girl is in impressive piece of work. An adult crime thriller that doubles as a cynical (realistic?) commentary on modern-day marriage. "

Starred Up (2014)

" Young British actor Jack O'Connell delivers a star-making performance, and the film itself is utterly authentic. "

Night Moves (2014)

" Impatient viewers are likely to complain that Night Moves is too slow and subdued for their tastes, but those in the market for an alternative thriller will find much to enjoy. "

Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

" A Dame To Kill For is as one-note as the first film, but Eva Green is a perfect femme fatale, while there's a bigger role for Powers Boothe - and more Powers Boothe is always a good thing. "

World War Z (2013)

" World War Z is far from perfect, but Marc Forster generates enough tension to compensate. "

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

" Andrew Garfield is note-perfect, and the chemistry he shares with Emma Stone is reason enough to watch, but The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is too cartoony and childish for its own good. A disappointing backwards step for the series. "

Game of Thrones: Season 2 (TV, 2012)

" The second season has more fantasy elements than the first, but otherwise it's largely more of the same. "

Sons of Anarchy: Season 6 (TV, 2013)

" The plot dictates that we see less of Ron Perlman than usual, and as you might expect his presence is missed. But Charlie Hunnam continues to anchor the show in impressive fashion, while CCH Pounder makes for a worthy opponent. "

Breaking Bad: Season 5 (TV, 2012-2013)

" Breaking Bad delivers a final season that is as gripping and rewarding as we've come to expect. It's the show that knocks. "

Hello Ladies: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014)

" Fans of Merchant's usual schtick will find much to like, but this brand of cringe comedy has grown dated and predictable. Still, the lanky funnyman has terrific comic timing and delivery, and the show gets a pass. Just. "

Homeland: Season 3 (TV, 2013)

" There are one or two questionable developments along the way, but the second half of the season offers a surprising return to form. Plus, the performances and Saul's beard remain as compelling as ever. "

The Newsroom: Season 2 (TV, 2013)

" Finding its feet thanks to a compelling ongoing storyline, the second season of Aaron Sorkin's politically-charged HBO drama is an improvement over the first. "

Dexter: Season 8 (TV, 2013)

Psycho (1960)

Star Trek (2009)

" The character work is consistently ace, but Star Trek 2009 doesn't offer the high-minded, underlying ideas that the show was known for. "
