Zarafa (2015)

"The film veers from quasi-real to cartoonily silly and scenes either drag or whirl by too fast." Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 17, 2015

Minions (2015)

"The conventional cartoon story arcs of self-realisation and redemption are skipped, but any sacrifice in emotional resonance is compensated for by the pace and purity of the fun." ‐Sight and Sound

Tokyo Tribe (2015)

"After the exhilarating shock of the opening this rapidly becomes monotonous and unpleasant." Empire Magazine
Posted May 18, 2015

The Tale of the Princess Kaguya (2014)

"While the characters feel very simplified at times, there are scenes that put great weight on performance and subtle expressions, in a way that's nearer to the classical Disney tradition than most Japanese animation." ‐Sight and Sound

The Rover (2014)

"There's plenty to admire, but little to care about." SFX Magazine

The Congress (2014)

"A beautiful looking, occasionally brilliant, outrageously indulgent trip." SFX Magazine
Posted Aug 15, 2014

WALL-E (2008)

"It indeed feels 'new', moving out of Pixar's comfort zone while retaining the brand's populist virtues: loveable characters, crafted jokes, aw-shucks niceness and wonderful images." ‐Sight and Sound

Thunder and the House of Magic (2014)

"Looks good, with a handsome design and an appealingly cute feline. It's just a shame the story's so mild and unadventurous." SFX Magazine

4/5 49%

Earth to Echo (2014)

"Does for E.T. what Super 8 did for Close Encounters. As lovably '80s as Reece's Pieces and pop socks." Empire Magazine

The Dirties (2013)

"Ultimately, the underlying reality and humanity save the film." Empire Magazine

Heli (2014)

"It's well-told and shot, yet ultimately unrewarding." Empire Magazine
Posted May 18, 2014

The Wind Rises (2014)

"It's Miyazaki's most atypical cartoon, yet it might be his most personal self-representation, a portrait of the artist as a myopic dreamer." ‐Sight and Sound

4/5 74%

Godzilla (2014)

"Godzilla very much has the mentality of a vintage creature feature, seemingly pitched at children and fannish true believers." SFX Magazine

Divergent (2014)

"An often entertaining, and sometimes very interesting, piece of teen SF." SFX Magazine

300: Rise of an Empire (2014)

"Less Rise Of An Empire, more Fall Of A Franchise" SFX Magazine
Posted Mar 7, 2014
3/5 100%

Moon Man (2013)

"It's recommended if you adore handmade children's picture books, lovely colours and compositions, trad animation and quirky humour which never, ever panders to pop culture." SFX Magazine

I, Frankenstein (2014)

"The last thing this film wants to do is make a believable world." SFX Magazine

4.5/5 49%

RoboCop (2014)

"It's not a classic like Paul Verhoeven's 1987 original, but it is an excellent, intelligent SF drama... one of the boldest Hollywood reboots we've seen yet." SFX Magazine
Posted Feb 5, 2014
2.5/5 18%

Devil's Due (2014)

"As far as originality goes, Devil's Due is a formula product on a level with Friday The 13th Part VIII. " SFX Magazine

Frozen (2013)

009 Re: Cyborg (2013)

"The script is lousy and laughable. Anime fans may be able to take the talky portentousness, but the ideas are ridiculous. " SFX Magazine

Everybody Has a Plan (2013)

"Mortensen is on top form - twice over - but while the noir mood gathers like a black cloud, the story frustrates." Empire Magazine

L'ordre et la morale (Rebellion) (2008)

"It's an absorbing political drama, eloquent and angry." Empire Magazine

All Things To All Men (2013)

"Wants to be Heat, ends up closer to a high-gloss episode of The Bill." Empire Magazine

May I Kill U? (2014)

"Setting out to be a killer-cop satire for the social media age, the result makes Paul Blart look like Taxi Driver. Unfollow immediately." Empire Magazine

Kiki's Delivery Service (1989)

"A terrific alternative to the diabetic's nightmare that is most of Disney's output, Kiki's Delivery Service takes pride of place in Miyazaki's exceptional body of work." Empire Magazine

Room 237 (2013)

Red Lights (2012)

Tales of the Night (2012)

"Tales Of The Night may be computer-animated, but its style is antique." SFX Magazine

Le moine (The Monk) (2013)

"Studded with lovely painterly images, but ends up feeling cramped and stagey." SFX Magazine

Intruders (2012)

"Intruders has many familiar elements, but it's not a problem; the film uses its archetypes wisely, and never glibly." SFX Magazine

Enter the Void (Soudain le vide) (2010)

"Initial wonderment gives way to feelings of frustration, tedium and then - if you're in a receptive mood - appreciation of the astral to-ings and fro-ings, the rhythms of despair and consolation." SFX Magazine

The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (2010)

"It's no shock classic, yet it lingers in the mind, prompting weird thoughts like, "Would I go in the front, middle or back?"" SFX Magazine
Posted Aug 20, 2010

300 (2007)

"If 300 represents an evolution in 'virtual' cinema, then at the same time it tells a story that transports us back to the violent roots of western civilisation." ‐Sight and Sound

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)

"Coming after Michael Bay's terrifyingly psychotic Transformers sequel, it's a relief to have a lowbrow fantasy actioner that's lively and busy without being crushingly relentless." SFX Magazine

Antichrist (2009)

"You may be gripped by Antichrist's depraved fairytale, or write it off as arthouse excrement. Either way, we guarantee you'll be relieved as hell when it's over." SFX Magazine

Bedtime Stories (2008)

"If you are forced to attend, then at least Bedtime Stories is tolerable, and occasionally fun -- when it forgets to be dumb." SFX Magazine

Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian (2009)

"Add some gags with living paintings and photos, and the return of that monkey, and this museum is certainly worth the price of admission." SFX Magazine

The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past (2009)

Surf's Up (2007)

Howl's Moving Castle (2005)

"As much of a hand-drawn treat as Spirited Away, chock-full of numinous sunsets, fabulous organic machinery and gratuitously delightful touches." Empire Magazine
