Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon (2014)

"This is a fascinating insight into the Hollywood machine through terrific old footage of some iconic faces. But it's Shep himself who makes this film so engaging." ‐The Sun (UK)

Pudsey the Dog: The Movie (2014)

"Oddly, the animal action takes a back seat to second-rate family drama, and kids hoping for 90 minutes of canine capers could get restless." ‐The Sun (UK)

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014)

"Hands-down the most intelligent blockbuster of the year so far." ‐The Sun (UK)

Victoria (2015)

"The performances are great, particularly from Costa and Lau, and carry the film as much as the dizzyingly audacious camerawork." ‐The Sun (UK)

Black Mountain Poets (2015)

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016)

"If you're the most undemanding romcom fan then this might hold your attention, but for everyone else this is a big fat disappointment." ‐The Sun (UK)

Zootopia (2016)

High-Rise (2016)

"A wonderfully weird oddity with moments of genius, just not quite enough of them." ‐The Sun (UK)

Rock the Kasbah (2015)

"It's neither funny nor feelgood, but its biggest crime is wasting Murray, left trying to mine laughs from unfunny circumstances." ‐The Sun (UK)

10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)

"The cast are superb but the biggest plaudits go to Goodman who is phenomenal, giving one of his finest performances. This sharp, slick shocker is massively entertaining." ‐The Sun (UK)

Anomalisa (2015)

"It's a slow movie that won't be for everyone. But for those looking to have their minds engorged with ideas and intuition, Anomalisa is a well of inspiration." ‐The Sun (UK)

The Witch (2016)

"Don't expect any jumpscares here or to leave the cinema particularly terrified. The Witch is a slow-burner of weirdness in the wilderness and unlike any recent horror film." ‐The Sun (UK)

The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016)

"The best of the series and a slick slice of sci-fi cinema." ‐The Sun (UK)

Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016)

"Kung Fu Panda 3 makes sure to continue the tradition of being perfectly pleasant for parents to sit through after being dragged to the multiplex by their kids." ‐The Sun (UK)

London Has Fallen (2016)

"If you're in the mood for some vicious violence and ridiculous action, then this sequel to Olympus Has Fallen will tick every box." ‐The Sun (UK)

Time Out Of Mind (2015)

"The film eventually reels you into its rhythms and the payoff, while slight, is surprisingly rewarding." ‐The Sun (UK)

Hail, Caesar! (2016)

"After the Coens' Inside Llewyn Davis, True Grit and A Serious Man, it's great to see them return to lighter fare. Even if this is far from classic Coens." ‐The Sun (UK)

The Benefactor (2016)

"The price of Gere's good looks is his acting skills don't quite match them." ‐The Sun (UK)

King Jack (2016)

"What elevates this indie film is Boardwalk Empire's Charlie Plummer, with something of the young DiCaprio about him." ‐The Sun (UK)

Secret in Their Eyes (2015)

"This is a pale imitation of the Oscar-winning Argentinian original that can't breathe any new life into familiar territory." ‐The Sun (UK)

The Forest (2016)

"A shame then that despite some flair for impressive visuals, first-time director Jason Zada can't muster much in the way of actual horror, which is kind of a problem when you're making a horror movie." ‐The Sun (UK)

The Brothers Grimsby (2016)

"Sacha Baron Cohen pushes the comedy envelope as far as he can with his latest creation in this rude, crude and utterly outrageous comedy" ‐The Sun (UK)

The Woman in Black 2 Angel of Death (2015)

"Offering nothing new in the way of shocks and suspense and relying on tired horror tropes, this is a tiresome slog rather than a chilling sequel. A disappointing follow-up to the far superior original." ‐The Sun (UK)

The Theory of Everything (2014)

"Redmayne is phenomenal, helped by his uncanny resemblance to the young Hawking. He captures the great man's famous sense of humour, likeable eccentricity and resilience." ‐The Sun (UK)

Birdman (2014)

"[A] funny, surreal and moving portrait of a Hollywood star losing his mind, as he attempts to rekindle his career by staging a play on New York's Broadway." ‐The Sun (UK)

Bone Tomahawk (2015)

Deadpool (2016)

"Ryan Reynolds hasn't had the best luck with superhero cinema. So I'm happy to report that Deadpool is an insane, anarchic riot of a movie." ‐The Sun (UK)

Zoolander 2 (2016)

"It's a hit and miss hour-and-a-half that lacks the charm of the first movie, but Zoolander 2 raises just enough chuckles to justify Derek's return to the big screen." ‐The Sun (UK)

Dad's Army (2016)

Dirty Grandpa (2016)

"Dirty Grandpa is a comedy that will leave you open-mouthed. Unfortunately, the sound being produced by your lungs isn't laughter but a silent scream at what is unfolding before you." ‐The Sun (UK)

The 33 (2015)

"What it does have is a gripping made-for-the-movies combination of horror and heart as the families of the men gather at the surface, first in protest at the lack of help, then in celebration as the government gets behind the miners' plight." ‐The Sun (UK)

Spotlight (2015)

"One of the best films you will see this - or any - year, Spotlight grips like a vice from start to finish." ‐The Sun (UK)

Our Brand is Crisis (2015)

"Billed as a comedy drama, Our Brand Is Crisis sits on the fence of both genres, without really committing to either." ‐The Sun (UK)

The Big Short (2015)

"Although it's easy to get caught up with these men and their mission, their success still means millions will end up homeless. That's the true success of The Big Short - it's such a tremendously enjoyable ride but leaves you reeling in frustration." ‐The Sun (UK)

Creed (2015)

McFarland USA (2015)

Solace (2016)
