2/5 87% Their Finest (2017) It is desperate, and I mean desperate, to present a niche angle on an event that, by definition, doesn't remotely need niche angles or sexing up.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

2/5 73% The Sense Of An Ending (2017) alfway through The Sense of an Ending, just at the point where Jim Broadbent was gulping, goldfish-like, through yet another Gollumy monologue -- does he do any other sort? -- I wondered, who is this film actually f‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 46% Ghost in the Shell (2017) Scarlett Johansson pirouettes her way through a big-budget remake of the classic Japanese animation in a tight beige skinsuit.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 80% Personal Shopper (2017) People often say that beautiful dresses are invisible, mysterious, or they defy gravity; Personal Shopper, a film about a stylist, is an extraordinary piece of gossamer, held together by almost nothing.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

84% Listen Up Philip (2014) Woody Allen, Wes Anderson, Noah Baumbach and Lena Dunham rolled into one -- and if that sounds like too much, well, it is! Jason Schwartzman stars as a pretentious writer.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

94% Spy (2015) The point of the film is to ask: what would happen if Miss Moneypenny were plump and 40, and suddenly assigned to her boss's missions...? No, I've never wondered either. But this is a valiant attempt to persuade us we ought to have done.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

61% Legend (2015) Tom Hardy does not so much act in films as wildly devour them, drawing every last ounce of energy and audience love his way. In Legend... he sucks an entire dressing-up box towards him as well.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

69% The Inbetweeners Movie 2 (2014) The boys are back, as hilariously filthy as ever, this time in Oz. Parents will be horrified, but this is the comedy of the summer.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2017
85% John Wick (2014) John Wick is a slick gangster flick simmering in a suppurating green light, featuring Reeves as a kung-fu assassin pursuing... well, the plot's not really important. What is important is the fact that Reeves is still doing this at 50.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

89% A Most Violent Year (2015) An anti-gangster flick set in 1981, one of the most crime-ridden years on record in New York.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

93% Ex Machina (2015) [Isaac] is superb as a psychopathic Steve Jobs type in Ex Machina, a creepily sexualised but ultimately impressive little sci-fi thriller directed by the British novelist Alex Garland.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) Mad, funny junk.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

3/5 98% Boyhood (2014) Elegant but a bit meh.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2017
73% Suffragette (2015) What is the point of the silly, histrionic teatime drama Suffragette? Certainly not to focus on the actual suffering of the suffragettes, who a little more than 100 years ago were sent to prison and force-fed after a string of "terrorist" attacks.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

71% Interstellar (2014) Interstellar has more of absolutely everything: more plot, more (stupid) words, more acting and much more bad acting (Anne Hathaway) than nearly all the year's films put together, as well as the most idiotic storyline of the decade.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) It is a wild, inventive, barking-bonkers trumpet voluntary of Wagnerian proportions, and I loved it. I loved it.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2017
75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) It really, really feels like the 11th exhausting film in the unstoppable ring cycle of movies based on the Avengers comic-book heroes -- a vast and increasingly dull series of blockbusters planned out, terrifyingly, as far ahead as 2019.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

94% Whiplash (2014) Simply outstanding.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

85% Under the Skin (2014) I just hated, hated, hated every mind-numbingly pretentious minute of it.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

86% Steve Jobs (2015) In many ways, the founder of Apple is the ideal subject for a screenplay by Aaron Sorkin: he is a spiteful, narcissistic American antihero.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

3/5 93% Hidden Figures (2017) The title is an amazing pun, based on black women working at NASA -- and the calculations they made to help the space race.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

3/5 98% Moonlight (2016) Moonlight looks ravishing, but loses the plot.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2017
2/5 85% Silence (2017) [Scorsese's] characters are flawed, horrible, dirty, desecrated; he specialises in the ugly, the weird, the wrong and the wronged... [Silence] is, awkwardly, about "goodness" and boringly "good" people. ‐ Sunday Times (UK)

3/5 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Rogue One is fine (if you're a Star Wars fan).‐ Sunday Times (UK)

3/5 61% High-Rise (2016) Few of [JG Ballard's] books make natural movies, partly because Ballard is not remotely interested in drawing the line between what is real and what isn't.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

3/5 93% I, Daniel Blake (2017) It constantly hectors the viewer. But it never feels quite genuine.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

3/5 84% Deepwater Horizon (2016) It makes a great, glossy, gloopy song out of greed.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2016
75% The BFG (2016) Spielberg says he has waited 20 years to make his version of Roald Dahl's Big Friendly Giant, but this may not be a huge compliment, given that he has found time to produce turkeys such as The Adventures of Tintin and [AI] in between.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2016
98% Love & Friendship (2016) Halfway through Love & Friendship... I felt a stab of terrible rage. How had this wonderful book not been adapted before, and why has the hilarious Kate Beckinsale been kept from (intelligent) audiences for so long?‐ Sunday Times (UK)

48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) Even the publicity geeks can't convincingly milk as exhausted a teat as X-Men.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
