71% King Lear (2018) Goneril shouldn't be played by anyone whose chief trait is Mary Poppins cosiness.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

No Score Yet Robbie's War: The Rise and Fall of a Playboy Billionaire (2018) The last thing anyone wants to watch is a playboy moaner crying over his last millions.‐ Times (UK)

No Score Yet The Queen's Green Planet (2018) The only way [the Queen and David Attenborough] could have made this interesting is if they'd both had simultaneous heart attacks, or if he'd secretly filmed her going into the bushes and then provided the narration.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

45% 90th Academy Awards (2018) What was most intriguing was... The dreadful, saccharine segments in which the Academy promised to honour black people and women -- issues that will be abandoned now they have tragically found out that sanctimony doesn't boost ratings.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

No Score Yet Secret History: Churchill's Secret Affair (2018) It said nothing about history and everything about the nightmarish identity crisis culture is suffering right now.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

3/5 35% The Internship (2013) I'm not sure there's anything particularly new here (some might say the very idea is dated), but the jokes are good, and there is the Butterscotch Stallion, Owen Wilson, a man who manages to be utterly jolly and deeply sad at once.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

2/5 60% The Bling Ring (2013) Of all Coppola's subjects, they are by far the most unpleasant: there is only one likeable character in the entire film, and that is Hilton's dog.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
3/5 79% Monsters University (2013) The film has a good script and some great set pieces, as well as the usual selection of monsters that look like people you know.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

1/5 71% Pacific Rim (2013) The whole thing is so silly: the heroes are wooden, the concept is amoebic, even the title is a joke.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
3/5 61% The Frozen Ground (2013) There's not much between this and a Sunday-night drama, but the ice-bound setting is different and beautiful.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
4/5 89% The World's End (2013) The result is a sweet, silly and sad film that is the comedy of the summer, a quiet ode to Britishness and the pub, and to the unshakeable notion that nothing will come between a man and his pint.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
5/5 98% Roman Holiday (1953) The best comedy ever written on the horrors of being a royal.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
2/5 65% The Heat (2013) The plot is formulaic, the stereotypes awful, the villain limp and sniffling and the message beyond predictable.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 92% Frances Ha (2013) I went fully prepared to hate it -- tried quite hard, in fact -- but it's so inoffensive that I couldn't help but enjoy it.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

1/5 43% Red 2 (2013) I liked about 2 1/2 minutes... The rest is just embarrassing and wrong.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
4/5 40% Only God Forgives (2013) There's something intoxicating about a film that manages to be both very violent and very pretty: it is unlike anything I've seen before, and in my book that is genius.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
3/5 30% The Lone Ranger (2013) There are so many wild and funny ideas. The only problem is that they've used them all.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
2/5 86% Alan Partridge (2014) The joy of Partridge is his capacity for failure, but the only failure here is having cast him as a hero in a -- pause for laughter -- blockbuster with a flimsy script and a cul-de-sac of a premise that sees him backed into a corner.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
3/5 67% Elysium (2013) This isn't a battle movie or a snazzy bit of political commentary, or even a plain upstairs v downstairs struggle for the nicest lawn, but a really weird high-budget healthcare drama in which President Obama could appear any minute.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
4/5 52% Lovelace (2013) It is unpretentious and moving, and Seyfried is great.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
2/5 56% Bachelorette (2012) The film is simply unbelievable; it's ruined not by the actresses or the script, but by the tone -- and not just ruined: destroyed, mashed into a pulp.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
3/5 33% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) It is one big rollicking hot mess of a film, and I like it.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
3/5 91% Philomena (2013) The whole thing is something you might read on a Saturday morning on a centre-page spread in the Daily Mail.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
3/5 66% Thor: The Dark World (2013) The subtitle may be The Dark World, but the only dark things about this world are the long, dull speeches and terrible costumes. Any attempt at sub-RSC portentousness falls flat.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
4/5 91% The Great Beauty (2013) I'd like to say there was a plot, only there isn't: it is simply a baroque and beautiful reflection of a five-decade romance with Rome.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
2/5 68% About Time (2013) The script is dull, the characters are annoying and Curtis has reached deep into the bargain bucket of plot devices and come up with time travel, the Ford Cortina of twists.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
1/5 50% White House Down (2013) This is the dumbest, gruntiest, schlockiest film ever to be cut and pasted off the internet‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
4/5 88% Rush (2013) I never thought I would care about the 1976 Formula One championship or magnesium "parts" or wet-weather tyres, but for 120 minutes, Hemsworth's extraordinary manboobs changed all that.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
3/5 14% R.I.P.D. (2013) The chase scenes and special effects are great, or at least much better than I anticipated.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
1/5 8% Diana (2013) This is a script they might have found in the boot of the car -- an overblown, empty, frilly and flatulent sub-Sylvie Krin web of lipstick and lunches with Clive James.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
1/5 30% Austenland (2013) The acting is terrible, the costumes are hideous and the best jokes are farts, with a pause for sniggers. I found myself laughing out of sheer terror at one point.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
5/5 91% Blue Jasmine (2013) The result is a brilliantly funny, immaculately structured film about hysteria and greed. It couldn't go wrong.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
3/5 90% Sunshine on Leith (2013) By the time you get to the saccharine finale, it's turned into The X Factor, but with kilts.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
2/5 63% Filth (2014) This is a shonky adaptation in which nothing hangs together.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
4/5 89% Le Week-End (2014) This isn't just about sex, it's a film about ageing, and the slights and delights of realising your life has never been your own. Unlike many Hollywood films, it doesn't make older people look angry or infantile. How refreshing.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
2/5 37% The Fifth Estate (2013) This is absurdity piled on melodrama piled on rubbish trousers and weird Ikea furniture, a bad weekly meeting of the Hampstead chapter of Fathers 4 Justice with added Pantene.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
3/5 95% Enough Said (2013) There have been a lot of great films about older people and sex recently, but this isn't one of them.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
5/5 93% Captain Phillips (2013) The whole thing is pulsing, brilliant and lean. It is a breathtakingly bold film, with knife-sharp responses.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
4/5 85% Seduced And Abandoned (2013) Seduced and Abandoned isn't a deeply intellectual film, but it is a wry and dry road trip that's worth a watch, at least for the pleasure of Baldwin playing the role he was born to play, Alec Baldwin.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2018
5/5 96% Gravity (2013) What makes this by far the best film of the year is not the haiku-like storyline or Stone's heart-stopping scramble... but the tears. Gravity is one of the most outrageously emotionally manipulative films I have ever seen.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2018
3/5 72% Lee Daniels' The Butler (2013) The overwhelming feeling is that Allen's story was not good enough for the makers of this shiny, overproduced biopic, so they have Forrest Gumpified everything beyond belief.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2018
1/5 No Score Yet The Counsellor (2013) Not just boring-boring, but aggressively boring: a film that not so much hates you as dares you to leave.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2018
4/5 89% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) Even by blockbuster standards, this is some heavily recycled material, and it's pretty long. But it's well done and will spirit away a cold Saturday afternoon nicely.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2018
4/5 90% Blue Is The Warmest Color (2013) Blue Is the Warmest Colour is the only mainstream film so far to treat a lesbian affair on equal terms with a heterosexual one. This is a proper romance, with all the usual jealousies and tiny idiocies.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 26, 2018
3/5 49% Carrie (2013) It's good, gripping stuff: Moore is excellent as the pale and bedraggled cult escapee, and the storyline actually makes sense this time, with the help of some technology-assisted slut-shaming.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
2/5 78% Saving Mr. Banks (2013) It is a strange, empty and pointless exercise that lets down some talented actors and a witty script.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
4/5 91% Nebraska (2013) This is a grand and grown-up film that shows Payne back at the top of his form.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
5/5 90% Frozen (2013) This is simply the best children's film in ages, a total frosty delight.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
5/5 90% Cinema Paradiso (Nuovo Cinema Paradiso) (1988) This is one of the finest films about innocence ever made, a perfect picture of a time when the cinema was the only source of laughter and joy.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2018
3/5 75% The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013) Will the beard-jerking, elf-twerking goblets'n'codpieces extravaganza that is Peter Jackson's three-part adaptation of The Hobbit ever match the excellence of his first trilogy? After almost three more grinding hours... the feeling is no.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
