4/5 90% District 9 (2009) First-time director Neil Blomkamp smashes onto the filmmaking scene with his sharply original debut movie, delivering a fast-paced thriller packed full of gags and guts in the manner of his mentor, producer Peter Jackson.‐

3/5 93% Iron Man (2008) Ultimately the inspired casting, snappy humour and whizz-bang technology are the equivalent of giving your old car a new coat of paint. Iron Man is entertaining, but it still runs on the same old superhero formula.‐

4/5 94% Star Trek (2009) Star Trek is back. It's action-packed, exciting, and visually spectacular -- who would have thought that the dying sci-fi series could be resurrected into something this fun?‐

4/5 91% Slumdog Millionaire (2008) I got swept up at the end. As will everyone. There's no denying the solid crowd pleaser structure behind this.‐

4/5 83% In Bruges (2008) In Bruges is a weird mix of bloody violence and situational comedy that occasionally provides a sombre meditation on mortality, and even functions as a picturesque travelogue to boot. And it works.‐

4/5 93% Enchanted (2007) Enchanted is a sweet romantic fable, with some loveable performances and some genuine good humour.‐

86% Hellboy II: The Golden Army (Hellboy 2) (2008) Hellboy II might not quite take Batman's crown as 2008's best comic-book movie, but it's right up there in the enjoyment stakes.‐

4/5 85% The Princess and the Frog (2009) The Princess and the Frog is dazzlingly colourful and, considering the advances in computer-generated imagery in recent years, more than matches its contemporaries in levels of artistry.‐

4/5 92% Frost/Nixon (2008) An enthralling game of cat-and-mouse.‐

4/5 93% Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (2011) Far more entertaining than the latest Bond.‐

3/5 39% Cars 2 (2011) ...Cars 2 is a bright and breezy excursion that avoids the slow patches the original had...‐
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2011
2/5 22% Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D (2011) ...fairly routine fare, even for kids, and aside from cool gadgets it's just a bit dull.‐

4/5 92% Senna (2011) entertaining, absorbing and inspiring documentary celebrating a champion's talent.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2011
3/5 79% Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) Flawless effects - including making a pre-captain Chris Evans look like a twig - plus top performances from the likes of Stanley Tucci, Hugo Weaving and Tommy Lee Jones, ensure an old-fashioned quality to this appealing matinee-style adventure.‐

3/5 35% Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) The spectacle is insane and the work done by the visual effects team is staggering‐
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2011
3/5 26% Green Lantern (2011) Green Lantern makes an effort to differentiate itself on an aesthetic level, but otherwise it's what you'd expect - a special-effects bonanza following formula.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2011
3/5 32% Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011) This is a darker, more soulful entry with some fun set pieces. But it's definitely wearying and no amount of candle-lit exposition can make a slight plot interesting. Time to lay anchor for good?‐
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2011
4/5 86% X-Men: First Class (2011) A bright, bold and fun take on Marvel's mutants.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2011
5/5 92% Another Year (2010) A masterful exploration of aging, family bonds, strength and loneliness. As with all his films, Leigh has reflected both the joy and the struggle of living a real life.‐
Read More | Posted May 16, 2011
3/5 85% Tracker (2011) A relative lack of action, pared with simplistic message-movie sentiments, that hampers what in any other case is a solid movie.‐
Read More | Posted May 16, 2011
4/5 92% Source Code (2011) An entertaining, intelligent puzzle.‐
Read More | Posted May 16, 2011
4/5 88% Rango (2011) Even if the story about a dust bowl town's diminished water supply isn't quite thrilling enough, the film makes up for it with wacked-out dream sequences and a general oddball tone‐

5/5 96% True Grit (2010) Even if the movie doesn't immediately blow you away like a shotgun blast, it'll creep up on you like rattlesnake venom.‐

5/5 85% Black Swan (2010) Climactic moments may induce nervous sniggering from audiences but such grandiose camp makes for a flamboyant and vivid contemporary classic.‐

4/5 95% The King's Speech (2010) This excellent buddy flick is an easily accessible and very satisfying comedy-drama... An intelligent, feel-good hit.‐

2/5 13% Yogi Bear (2010) I found the movie quite flat and uninteresting but then, I'm a grown-up.‐
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2011
3/5 89% Tangled (2010) With princesses and romance for the girls, sword-fighting and derring-do for the lads, Tangled ticks boxes for both genders.‐

3/5 72% Megamind (2010) A moderately amusing experience... will play better to a younger, less discerning crowd.‐

3/5 85% Easy A (2010) "At the screening I was at, a youngish chap slouching next to me asked his friend: 'remind me why we're watching this'. 'For the girls,' was the reply. For Emma Stone, to be precise.‐

4/5 72% Machete (2010) Rodriguez - king of the stretch-a-budget, DIY mentality - is once again paying homage to all the B-grade schlock that inspired him, and having a hell of a lot of fun while he's at it.‐

3/5 78% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010) This really is a more grown-up affair, and very scary, whether with the Dark Lord's manipulation of his minions in Malfoy Manor, or in Bathilda Bagshot's reptilian stare.‐

4/5 73% Monsters (2010) Edwards' debut has more in common with Lost in Translation. Imagine Godzilla stumbling around Tokyo while Bill and Scarlett sing karaoke inside the hotel and you'll get a good idea of what Monsters is all about.‐

4/5 94% Winter's Bone (2010) These spooky woods are a dangerous setting - here we find desperate, brain-dead trailer-trash, with moral centres as hollow as the burnt out shacks of their meth misadventures.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2010
3/5 93% The Town (2010) Best when focusing on robbing rather than knobbing... The Town is absorbing whenever the bad guys are up to no good.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2010
3/5 81% Despicable Me (2010) This light-hearted caper is brightly coloured and up-tempo, featuring plenty of cool gadgets and baddie-vs-baddie hijinks.‐

5/5 95% Animal Kingdom (2010) A cracking story with fascinating characters; an engrossing tale of a family's fall.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2010
4/5 81% Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) Colourful, contemporary and akin to cinematic candy, Scott Pilgrim is continuously funny and endlessly inventive.‐
Read More | Posted Aug 12, 2010
2/5 52% Knight & Day (2010) The spy-caper story is as forgettable as they come and the jokes are pretty forced.‐
Read More | Posted Jul 22, 2010
5/5 98% Toy Story 3 (2010) It makes sense that the film was penned by Michael Arndt, whose Little Miss Sunshine provided a similar balance of mirth and melancholy.‐
Read More | Posted Jul 1, 2010
4/5 54% Cemetery Junction (2010) An unabashedly feel-good and identifiable crowdpleaser.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2010
3/5 48% The A-Team (2010) Carnahan's movie doesn't take itself seriously at all, which adds to the lightweight charm of what is essentially Charlie's Angels with balls.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2010
3/5 73% Iron Man 2 (2010) Fans of the comic book might well be satisfied. Anyone else will find moments here - it certainly looks cool - but might, like me, leave the cinema feeling a little undernourished.‐

2/5 63% Hot Tub Time Machine (2010) Someone in particular really lifts the movie %u2013 his name is Crispin Glover and he is a comic genius. You might remember seeing him in a more exciting and more humorous time-travelling movie from another era.‐
