3/5 72% The Falling (2015) "Writer and director Carol Morley goes for "a look how shocking we are" scene of incest. It just detracts from what had been an intriguing movie about mass hysteria. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 11, 2015
3/5 88% The Good Lie (2014) "[The three central brothers] performances add an authenticity to a story that's clearly put through the Hollywoodisation machine but never feels dishonest. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 11, 2015
2/5 51% Stonehearst Asylum (2014) "Sadly, this film seeks to expand the basic story - based on an Edgar Allen Poe tale - in a ridiculous fashion that lurches awkwardly from childish fantasy to sick violence. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 11, 2015
4/5 80% Macbeth (2015) "Fassbender gives a Highland-straddling performance to present the toil and mental trouble that results from this treacherous act. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 8, 2015
3/5 62% The Intern (2015) "It's a strange one, The Intern. Just as you're wincing at a tired gag about how older people don't know Facebook, along comes sentimental melodrama and you're suddenly grabbing for a tissue. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 8, 2015
3/5 84% The Walk (2015) " It's worth it because the nerve-shredding climax deserves high praise indeed. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 8, 2015
4/5 92% The Martian (2015) "Fascinating, feel-good and quite simply a hugely fun reason to head to the cinema. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 8, 2015
98% Inside Out (2015) "Pixar is back doing what they do best, creating some of the most bold, beautiful and ridiculously feelgood cinema you can imagine, Inside Out is an absolute triumph. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 8, 2015
4/5 61% Southpaw (2015) "This is a far cry from the uplifting Rocky -- it's immensely bleak, even in its supposed happier moments. Don't be surprised if we see Gyllenhaal being an Oscar contender. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 8, 2015
1/5 58% Maggie (2015) "You spend the entire film waiting for something -- anything -- to happen and nothing does. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 8, 2015
59% Barney Thomson (The Legend of Barney Thomson) (2016) "Barney's not quite legendary, but he's certainly in good company. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 8, 2015
2/5 83% Eden (2015) "The drama occurs only fleetingly and Greta Gerwig's cameo as one of Paul's flames is stilted. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 8, 2015
5/5 86% Steve Jobs (2015) "This is truly inspired filmmaking on every level and come awards season it would be shocking not to see it up there. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 4, 2015
3/5 28% Fathers And Daughters (2016) "CLEARLY everyone involved in this OTT drama from Seven Pounds director Gabriele Muccino thinks they're in something profound, but not even its starry cast can overcome the soap opera levels of cheese. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 4, 2015
2/5 80% Sunset Song (2016) "Director Terence Davies plots the story a bit too much, like a soap opera. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 4, 2015
4/5 91% The Lady In The Van (2015) "Writer and national treasure Alan Bennett adapts his own hit play to deliver one of the best British films of the year that will - for want of a better cliché - make you laugh and cry in equal measure. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 4, 2015
3/5 19% Love the Coopers (2015) "Despite solid performances all round, this isn't as good as the sum of its parts - it's a series of cleverly constructed sketches, culminating in a final act that never quite delivers the pay-off. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 4, 2015
4/5 65% Krampus (2015) "Shocks and jumps come thick and fast, but rather than relying on cheap thrills, Krampus embraces its silliness and takes the audience on a hugely entertaining ride. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 4, 2015
2/5 24% Victor Frankenstein (2015) "Unfortunately, - just like the monster in question - the latest offering from director Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin) is a bit of a lumbering mess. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 4, 2015
2/5 13% Return to Sender (2015) "The audience, though, will surely guess the twist which is coming. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 2, 2015

Posted Dec 2, 2015
4/5 66% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) "Actress Elizabeth Banks takes over directing duties and delivers a sequel that's the right mix of funny and feel-good. Pretty much note-perfect. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 2, 2015
4/5 88% The Tribe (2015) "The Tribe shows that you don't need dialogue to communicate. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
Posted Dec 2, 2015
5/5 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "Simply bloody amazing, Fury Road is an adrenaline-fuelled, fist-pumping, action masterpiece. You'd be mad to miss it. " ‐ The Sun (UK)

Posted Mar 14, 2013

Posted Feb 15, 2013
4/5 86% Wreck-it Ralph (2012) "This is a hugely enjoyable entry in the Walt Disney Animation Studios catalogue. It sits well alongside the likes of Tangled, balancing both anarchic humour and classic Disney sentimentality very well. " ‐ The Sun (UK)

Posted Jan 24, 2013
5/5 90% Lincoln (2012) "Perhaps this is a rose-tinted view of Lincoln - he comes across as more living saint than man - but as cinema, it is powerful, gripping and thoroughly entertaining. " ‐ The Sun (UK)
