4/5 63% Broken (2013) Filled with devastating drama, but also capable of many endearing moments, Norris' Broken is an affecting British indie which gets the most out of its story thanks to the talented ensemble and an excellent lead performance. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 65% Unfinished Song (2013) The uplifting story and impressive lead performances make it easily recommendable for more mature audiences. - CineVue EDIT

1/5 15% A Good Day To Die Hard (2013) A Good Day to Die Hard's grossest sin is that at no point does it feel like a Die Hard movie. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 46% Bullet to the Head (2013) Will appeal to certain audiences, and those hoping for silly fun in the vein of throwaway one-liners and axe-fight showdowns will not be disappointed. For others, Stallone's latest is best viewed on smaller screens, if at all. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 41% Midnight's Children (2013) There is undoubtedly a compelling story to be found within Midnight's Children... but the lack of focus means that it feels more like a vignette than the main narrative it perhaps should have been. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 49% The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (2012) This is a solid, entertaining conclusion that fans of the series will love and others can endure. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 79% Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted (2012) The animation is largely excellent -- particularly in the circus sequences -- and the colorful, vibrant visuals look especially impressive in 3D. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 52% Pusher (2012) Whether Pusher has done enough to distinguish itself from Refn's original is up for debate but, thanks in no small part to an excellent central performance from Coyle, it makes for a decent British crime thriller. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 100% Everything or Nothing (2012) Serves as the perfect appetiser before the next adventure of Her Majesty's most loyal agent. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 75% The Intouchables (2012) The culture clash shtick is nothing new, but seldom has it been this funny, and Philippe and Driss' opposing perspectives on music, opera and art produce many a laugh-out-loud moment. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 78% Dredd (2012) Clocking in at a pacey 96 minutes, Dredd 3D will satisfy fans as well as serve as a great introduction for newcomers to the character. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 100% Salute (2012) A riveting, eye-opening documentary that, like Norman himself, is undoubtedly worthy of more attention. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 35% Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012) For all its cult ambition, Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter feels like two separate movies bundled into one messy final package. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 83% The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976) Whether they're in love or arguing, their interactions are never over-the-top, retaining a natural feel helped in no small part by Stoller's witty script. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 57% The Dictator (2012) Assuming you're not easily offended, The Dictator is laugh-out-loud comedy at its best. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 37% Dark Shadows (2012) It's just unfortunate that Dark Shadows' impressive cast is not backed up with tighter material. With hints towards a possible sequel suggested, whether Burton has earned the right to make it after this average effort is definitely up for debate. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 26% The Samaritan (2012) The strong performances of the cast do well to elevate The Samaritan, but there's not much more to take away from this mildly entertaining crime thriller. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 93% Blindspotting (2018) By equal turns tense and witty but with plenty of perceptive social commentary to go around, this is a film that only gets more rewarding the more you look under its surface. - Empire Magazine EDIT

2/5 28% Night School (2018) Unfocused and uninspired, Night School has its moments but is held back by a script that required more study. - Empire Magazine EDIT

4/5 89% MATANGI/MAYA/M.I.A. (2018) An intimate, illuminating doc that puts the focus on M.I.A.'s activism instead of her music and is, in some ways, all the more admirable for it. - Empire Magazine EDIT

2/5 64% Uncle Drew (2018) Its heart is in the right place, but some lively performances from the better-than-you'd-expect ballers-turned-actors can only paper over a thin, cliché-riddled script so much. - Empire Magazine EDIT

4/5 90% Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016) What really makes this latest trip to the Barbershop a cut above most comedies is that it manages to be both powerful and timely, without being preachy. - HeyUGuys EDIT

5/5 88% Straight Outta Compton (2015) A fittingly raw and powerful film. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) Improves on its predecessor on many fronts even if it doesn't fully recapture the magic of the 2012 endeavour. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 94% Blind (2015) Clever, insightful, and beautifully unpredictable, Vogt's debut feature is one that deserves to be seen. - HeyUGuys EDIT

3/5 73% Big Eyes (2014) Very much unlike the director's recent fare, a fine and surprisingly complex piece of work which suggests he should step out of his weird and wonderful comfort zone more often. - HeyUGuys EDIT

2/5 17% Sex Tape (2014) Neither raunchy nor insightful enough, this Sex Tape underwhelms. - HeyUGuys EDIT

2/5 37% Hector And The Search For Happiness (2014) It's not as profound as it thinks it is, and the screenplay disappoints more than it impresses, but Hector and the Search for Happiness is a harmless, solidly performed romp. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 64% Million Dollar Arm (2014) Though it doesn't offer much by way of freshness, Million Dollar Arm is about as enjoyable as a predictable film gets, thanks to a feel good mix of genuine heart and wit. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 91% Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) A Marvel movie hasn't been this much fun to watch since the Avengers assembled. - HeyUGuys EDIT

3/5 18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) As a visual showcase, Bay's blockbuster delivers. Though the question remains, is that really enough? - HeyUGuys EDIT

3/5 33% A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) A Million Ways to Die in the West hits more often than it misses. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 90% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) Striking in its ambition, assured in its execution, and compelling throughout. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 99% 20 Feet From Stardom (2013) Twenty Feet From Stardom is an illuminating and hugely entertaining documentary with important, far-reaching messages to boot. - HeyUGuys EDIT

5/5 90% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) To that end, make sure you stay watching through the credits. Captain's orders. - HeyUGuys EDIT

2/5 13% Winter's Tale (2014) One can only hope this story works a lot better on page than on screen. - HeyUGuys EDIT

3/5 49% RoboCop (2014) Though it lacks wow factor, it's certainly worth of a dollar or two. - HeyUGuys EDIT

3/5 65% August: Osage County (2013) Cinematically wanting but never dull, the excellent acting on display is enough to make a trip to August: Osage County worthwhile. - HeyUGuys EDIT

3/5 42% Homefront (2013) Homefront never quite reaches a level when it becomes more than just an enjoyable Statham actioner, but watching an enjoyable Statham actioner isn't a bad way to spend a couple hours. - HeyUGuys EDIT

2/5 61% Ender's Game (2013) Despite the solid performances - and an admittedly intriguing final 10 minutes - Ender's Game is an underwhelming sci-fi that makes poor use of its thought-provoking material. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 66% Thor: The Dark World (2013) Thor: The Dark World is an ambitious, thrilling and often hilarious superhero sequel. Iron Man got things off to a great start, but now Marvel's 'Phase Two' is in full swing. - HeyUGuys EDIT
