4/5 80% Black Sea (2015) There's great beauty to the rusted wreck of a vessel and the film built around it. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 77% St. Vincent (2014) St. Vincent is one to watch but is unlikely to be remembered. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 79% The Theory of Everything (2014) The Theory of Everything may not tell us the full story but the captivating narrative it presents makes it more than worthy of your attention. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) Bold, brash and bonkers: Vaughn's best work yet grabs you by the lapels and never lets up. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 27% Jupiter Ascending (2015) Jupiter Ascending is several stars short of a constellation. An excess of imagination fails to result in entertainment or narrative cohesion; something went very wrong here. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 83% Predestination (2015) Forget four dimensions; Predestination struggles to break out of two. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 33% Chappie (2015) Within Chappie, there is an almost perfect short film; an inventive take on a mechanical consciousness developing under unusual circumstances. If only the additional 100 minutes could have sustained this. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 76% Suite Française (2015) Not a classic, though a welcome addition to the genre. - One Room With A View EDIT

5/5 62% The Water Diviner (2015) Successfully navigating war, drama, action and romance, this film has it all on both sides of the camera. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 75% Good Kill (2015) With more stereotypes than you can shake a joystick at, Good Kill reduces an important debate to a cliché-ridden mess. You'll die of boredom before it hits its target. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 73% A Royal Night Out (2015) An imaginative fish out of water in a unique time in our history, fully realised through first-class design and plummy acting; happy and glorious indeed. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 66% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) Whilst it's fun in the high notes and high jinks, Pitch Perfect 2 has too many low notes to compete with the original. Aca-average. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 78% The Connection (2015) The Connection blends tense drama, upbeat humour and breathless action to depict the truth of this rugged underdog story. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 91% Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films (2012) This is a thorough and respectful documentary - Cannon Films undeniably taught Hollywood a lesson through bad example, but whether they were ahead of their time or shysters is left open. - One Room With A View EDIT

1/5 No Score Yet Heavenly Sword (2014) Heavenly Sword plays like the rough, unfinished cutscenes of a game, inexpertly stitched together, with none of the player engagement in between. Press X to escape this hell. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 33% Entourage (2015) Overlong and underwhelming, Entourage has gone from the show that ended too soon to the film that couldn't end soon enough. - One Room With A View EDIT

5/5 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) With dazzling stunts, exhilarating chases and a screenplay both tense and fun, McQuarrie and Pearce have created the definitive Mission: Impossible movie. Go see Rogue Nation now - it's a blast. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 66% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) Ritchie has tried to make a sleek and smart period spy caper, but The Man From U.N.C.L.E. falls short of any of its intended opposition. Looks great, but feels wrong. - One Room With A View EDIT
Read More | Posted May 3, 2019
3/5 85% Trainwreck (2015) Schumer is a talent Hollywood has understandably fallen in love with; Trainwreck plays fast and lewd, hitting an impressive laugh-rate and bringing a fresh take to a hoary genre. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 54% Gemma Bovery (2015) For all its Gallic charm, Gemma Bovery fails to find le note juste. As the film describes Flaubert's source material, nothing happens but at the same time it's (somewhat) interesting. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 46% No Escape (2015) The counter-intuitive casting of Bell and Wilson pays off but it doesn't make big enough waves. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 73% Everest (2015) Everest is effective as disaster tragedy, personal drama and nature documentary. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) Sadly this final chapter is best served only to completionists. - One Room With A View EDIT

1/5 No Score Yet The Ridiculous 6 (2015) Ridiculous 6 feels cheaper, lazier, and all-round worse than even Hot Tub Time Machine 2. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 84% Deadpool (2016) The film is, thankfully, hilarious from titles to post-credits, with thick and fast references to worlds real and mutant, and a levity to counterpoint the darkness. - One Room With A View EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 17, 2019
2/5 44% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) The romance is heartless, the plot is brainless, and the action is gutless - Pride and Prejudice and Zombies survives purely on its spine. - One Room With A View EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 17, 2019
2/5 78% Bolshoi Babylon (2015) A serious case of style over substance and opulence over observation. - One Room With A View EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2019
3/5 36% Our Brand is Crisis (2015) As a good humoured drama, with the laughs peaking at a choice use of Sandra's buttocks, this is light yet entertaining. - One Room With A View EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2019
4/5 51% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) Yes, it's still patriotic explosions but Michael Bay has matured, Benghazi showing a more nuanced and balanced perspective from the bombastic director. - One Room With A View EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2019
3/5 32% Dad's Army (2016) Borrowing enough from the original series and allowing the new faces to develop the old characters, they've found the balance so often lacking in reboots. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 95% Marguerite (2016) Frot is Marguerite, and Marguerite is Frot - her central rendition is the extraordinary performance of a lifetime, capturing the beauty and innocence behind the voice of a peacock. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 88% Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) Despite a trio of worthy central performances, a story worthy of attention and an exciting era to set it in, Florence Foster Jenkins is tonally all over the shop. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 95% Eye In The Sky (2016) As showcases of the cast's talent, EITS hits its mark. Plot-wise, this realistic and relevant portrayal of how Whitehall and Washington wage war is more interesting than engaging. - One Room With A View EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2019
4/5 91% Captain America: Civil War (2016) A-grade filmmaking, as confident as it is competent, and a shiny stone in Marvel's gauntlet. - One Room With A View EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2019
1/5 23% Golden Years (2016) With plodding pace, decrepit cliché and a senile sense of storytelling, that this ever made it beyond ITV3's film choice for a Tuesday morning is mind-boggling. - One Room With A View EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2019
3/5 72% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) Our Kind of Traitor is a serviceable and relevant film with little to distinguish it above its compatriots. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 95% Sing Street (2016) Sing Street is a touching and toe-tapping delight from start to finish. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 72% A Hologram for the King (2016) A Hologram For The King is expressly second class, lacking depth, clarity and, most importantly, a meaningful message. - One Room With A View EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 2, 2019
4/5 80% Holding The Man (2015) A true team effort, co-captained by Coor and Stott and expertly directed by Armfield. Holding The Man tackles a big issue in a delicate yet unflinching manner. - One Room With A View EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 2, 2019
1/5 22% The Boss (2016) A 25-minute sitcom episode overstretched and underfilled to make 90 minutes feel like a life sentence. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 77% The Fundamentals of Caring (2016) The Fundamentals of Caring sometimes feels clumsy with two left feet. But the central relationship between Rudd and Roberts shines through... - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 34% Now You See Me 2 (2016) Fun without form and stylish without substance, NYSM2 is more of the same without taking any steps forward or backwards. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 68% The Carer (2015) Coco König and Brian Cox are the only stars in an otherwise mediocre show... - One Room With A View EDIT

1/5 12% Cell (2016) There is nothing to see here which can't be found done much better by countless other bad films which put Cell to shame. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 23% Inferno (2016) It's no mystery why Inferno works...viewers can sit back and enjoy the journey. It is not, however, as clever as it thinks it is. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 38% Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016) It's a role Cruise plays perfectly, without veering into cruise-control, seen-it-all-before repetition. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 51% The Accountant (2016) This film is a cut above; all the pieces add together and the result is greater than the sum of its individually high-value parts. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 84% Imperium (2016) Aside from Daniel Radcliffe's superb central performance, Imperium's strong core comes from director Daniel Ragussis' depiction of malign normalcy. - One Room With A View EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2019
3/5 99% Under The Shadow (2016) Under the Shadow comes from a dark place. Firmly in the shade of the Cultural Revolution and deep into the Iran-Iraq War, the spectre of war and threat of tragedy looms large over what is, in essence, a stressful domestic drama. - One Room With A View EDIT
