Office Christmas Party (2016)

"A very hit-and-miss affair that's more ho-hum than ho ho ho." ‐Daily Express (UK)

I Am Not a Serial Killer (2016)

"I Am Not A Serial Killer may have some gloopy, gory moments but rather than the full-on chiller you might expect, it is slow and brooding, gothic and decidedly odd." ‐Daily Express (UK)

The Birth of a Nation (2016)

"Sentimental in places, Birth Of A Nation seems a little too fond of sadistic violence and suffering and works too hard to establish Turner as a messiah figure. But it has some powerful, striking moments." ‐Daily Express (UK)

Snowden (2016)

"Ultimately, Snowden makes you understand why he felt that there was no choice but to risk everything and let the world know the truth." ‐Daily Express (UK)

The Edge of Seventeen (2016)

"A really pleasant surprise of a film." ‐Daily Express (UK)

Chi-Raq (2015)

"Chi-Raq is a bawdy, angry cry from the heart that only works in fits and starts but there are times when it really hits the mark, especially when addressing the nightmare of drugs, guns and violence in inner-city America." ‐Daily Express (UK)

Bleed For This (2016)

"Despite the craft and committed performances, Bleed For This feels very conventional and never delivers a knockout blow." ‐Daily Express (UK)

Moana (2016)

"Moana offers first-class entertainment in the best Disney style." ‐Daily Express (UK)

Sully (2016)

"Eastwood's smartest move is to cast Tom Hanks as Sully. Hanks is our James Stewart, bringing so much warmth and sincerity to the screen that we instantly feel at ease with him." ‐Daily Express (UK)

A United Kingdom (2017)

"Love changes everything in A United Kingdom, a sweeping, sentimental account of true events." ‐Daily Express (UK)

Magnus (2016)

"The film is largely sympathetic with only modest hints of the sacrifices made and the difficulties he faces engaging with people on an emotional level." ‐Daily Express (UK)

Bad Santa 2 (2016)

"A true Christmas turkey." ‐Daily Express (UK)

Paterson (2016)

"Paterson offers a modest, slow-burning fanfare for the common man." ‐Daily Express (UK)

Allied (2016)

"Oscar-winner Cotillard is a strong, spiky presence as Marianne and an older-looking Pitt is suitably handsome and dashing in a role that seems tailor-made for a young Robert Redford." ‐Daily Express (UK)

Dog Eat Dog (2016)

"Weird but also pretty entertaining in places." ‐Daily Express (UK)

United States of Love (Estados Unidos de Amor) (2016)

"Endless possibilities bring only complications in this bleak heartbreaker." ‐Daily Express (UK)

Your Name (Kimi No Na Wa.) (2016)

"The film soon blossoms from a body-swap comedy into something magical and profound." ‐Daily Express (UK)

Panic (2014)

"Gyasi is a good enough actor to make you care about the character but once Andrew journeys through modern London's dark underbelly it becomes more conventional and less compelling." ‐Daily Express (UK)

Gimme Danger (2016)

"Jarmusch is clearly a fan and lovingly stitches together archive footage covering the history of the band from the 1960s until their break-up in 1974." ‐Daily Express (UK)

Indignation (2016)

Dog Eat Dog (2016)

"There are some misjudgements along the way and it's a film that's definitely a little rough around the edges but it reveals Schrader as an old dog who still knows a trick or two." ‐The List

American Pastoral (2016)

"Inevitably the film simplifies a good deal of the book's complexity but McGregor's biggest mistake is to cast himself in the leading role." ‐Daily Express (UK)

4/5 93%

Arrival (2016)

"You can pick holes in the plot if you examine it closely but Arrival is so well made and acted that you are willing to suspend your disbelief, engage your little grey cells and savour one of the smarter screen epics we've seen in quite a while." ‐Daily Express (UK)

Girls Lost (Pojkarna) (2015)

"It's not the most subtle of films but it does make the points that everyone is more complicated than they first appear and that the heart knows no boundaries when it comes to attraction." ‐Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 3, 2016
2/5 45%

Rupture (2016)

"Despite a cast that includes Noomi Rapace, Michael Chiklis and Lesley Manville, Rupture is a pretty feeble slice of science-fiction horror." ‐Daily Express (UK)

The Darkest Universe (2016)

"It may leave a few too many loose ends and unanswered questions and concludes too quickly but it is an emotional, engaging film." ‐Daily Express (UK)

3/5 76%

A Street Cat Named Bob (2016)

"The film is often heavy handed as it tugs at the heartstrings and some of the supporting characters are a little wooden but the story remains an irresistible heartwarmer." ‐Daily Express (UK)

The Accountant (2016)

The Eagle Huntress (2016)

"A stunning location and a winning character are cannily deployed to create a likeable film in which audiences will need little persuasion to cheer the triumph of the underdog." ‐Screen International

The Accountant (2016)

"There are clever touches, effective moments and enjoyable performances but Gavin O'Connor's film never gels into a coherent or believable whole." ‐The List

The Light Between Oceans (2016)

"If you can handle its old-fashioned melodrama, you will find a beautifully shot, powerfully acted tale of loss, grief and the healing power of love." ‐Daily Express (UK)

Starfish (2016)

"A gruelling dramatisation of true events." ‐Daily Express (UK)

4/5 100%

After Love (2016)

"Cédric Kahn as the gruff, indignant Boris and Bérénice Bejo as the steely, exasperated Marie, play the roller coaster of emotions to the hilt in a captivating Belgian drama with an echo of Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?" ‐Daily Express (UK)
Posted Oct 27, 2016
4/5 95%

Train to Busan (Bu-san-haeng) (2016)

"This high-speed thriller has a brash moral agenda where it takes the threat of oblivion to bring out the best and worst in people." ‐Daily Express (UK)

Doctor Strange (2016)

"Doctor Strange does have the good sense not to take itself too seriously and there is a welcome sense of humour running through it with a string of witty asides from Cumberbatch." ‐Daily Express (UK)

4/5 100%

After Love (2016)

"Lafosse's previous films, from 2006's Private Property to 2012's Our Children, have explored the devastating fallout from fractured relationships. After Love is no less intense or well observed." ‐The List

Starfish (2016)

Queen of Katwe (2016)

"It follows the classic tearjerking formula of a Rocky film but still emerges as an inspirational, old-fashioned charmer." ‐Daily Express (UK)
