3/5 86% Born To Be Blue (2016) "Becomes so wedded to stodgy melodrama that you wind up thinking it's a bore to be that blue and just want to hear the man play. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jul 24, 2016
4/5 100% The Hard Stop "Black lives matter. So does nuance. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jul 17, 2016
2/5 12% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) "The scriptwriters fall back on that most exhausted of dynamics, the tension between a doting father and his potential son-in-law, and can't even do it with charm. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jul 17, 2016
2/5 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) "Jackson is the film's greatest asset. He's also its biggest problem. He's just too charismatic. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jul 10, 2016
3/5 68% Central Intelligence (2016) "Summer blockbusters used to be reliably homophobic but, thanks to Johnson, this one's approach to love and lust seems genuinely new wave. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jul 4, 2016
3/5 34% Now You See Me 2 (2016) "Both predictable and confounding. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jul 4, 2016
3/5 77% Elvis & Nixon (2016) "Elvis and Nixon are fascinating - if only we were allowed to spend more time with them. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jun 26, 2016
4/5 94% Remainder "You won't forget Remainder in a hurry. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jun 26, 2016
4/5 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) "Great. So now, along with being spooked by claps, dolls and nuns, I'm tisantaphobic too. Thanks for everything, James Wan. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jun 19, 2016
4/5 98% Embrace Of The Serpent (El Abrazo De La Serpiente) (2016) "While Guerra clearly owes a debt to Herzog and Coppola, he blazes his own trail. I can't wait to take this trip again. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jun 12, 2016
3/5 22% The Boss (2016) "The confidently modest McCarthy creates her own happy endings. Make a date with this woman and you'll TF it's Friday. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jun 12, 2016
2/5 29% Warcraft (2016) "Jones commands the SFX but (for now) he's lost the power to move. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jun 5, 2016
3/5 59% Me Before You (2016) "Me Before You is old-fashioned and cosy. It's also part of a highly-charged and very 21st-century debate. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jun 5, 2016
4/5 30% Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) "This yummy film feels like a healthy choice for growing girls. Though it probably won't earn a billion dollars, what it offers is priceless. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted May 29, 2016
3/5 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) "There's much to recommend X-Men: Apocalypse - its best sequences knock the crap out of anything and everything in Batman v Superman. But its bad moments are worse than the worst bits in Captain America: Civil War. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted May 22, 2016
2/5 69% A Hologram for the King (2016) "For all the high-tech lingo, there's nothing new to feel or see. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted May 22, 2016
4/5 97% Sing Street (2016) "Carney nails every quirky detail. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted May 22, 2016
3/5 91% Green Room (2016) "How can you resist a film that, metaphorically, throws Simon & Garfunkel, Fugazi and Slayer into the same moshpit? " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted May 15, 2016
3/5 87% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) "Everybody Wants Some!! is obsessed with seduction. Don't let me stop you going all the way with Linklater. I'm just here to warn you that, with regards to this film, he doesn't go very deep. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted May 15, 2016
3/5 21% I Saw the Light (2016) "Bleak biopics don't have to be grim (think of Raging Bull). But this one is neither illuminating nor able to make the most of the dark. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted May 8, 2016
3/5 62% Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) "A fitfully hilarious comedy sequel from Seth Rogen, the kind of man who can get away with pointing at a pregnant Hasidic woman and saying: "Look, another little Jew in the oven!" " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted May 8, 2016
4/5 90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) "The central debate is topical but it cries out for input from some of Marvel's newer creations (if only there was space for Ms Marvel, aka Kamala Khan, a Pakistani-American teen from New Jersey). " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted May 1, 2016
3/5 73% Miles Ahead (2016) "Actor Don Cheadle, the star, director and co-writer of this ambitious biopic, doesn't want to play nicely. He wants to play. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Apr 24, 2016
2/5 41% Jane Got a Gun (2016) "Is it possible that Natalie Portman can't act? " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Apr 24, 2016
3/5 81% The Brand New Testament "The film's generous spirit keeps digging it out of trouble. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Apr 17, 2016
4/5 94% The Jungle Book (2016) "This new Jungle Book, upon closer inspection, may not have what it takes to survive. Still, right now, it looks wonderfully fit. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Apr 17, 2016
3/5 16% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) "It's a Frozen-meets-Hunger Games-meets-X-Men rip-off, but I'm prepared to cut it some slack because it contains a truly novel character: a cool female dwarf. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Apr 10, 2016
3/5 62% Black Mountain Poets "I can't see many people trekking to the cinema to see this but if you stumbled across it on TV you'd feel really chuffed. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Apr 3, 2016
4/5 84% Victoria (2015) "Schipper and his young team may not be up there with Hitchcock but they tell a good story. When it comes to pain, these kids cut to the chase. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Apr 3, 2016
4/5 73% Welcome to Me (2015) "Whatever the state of your mental health, you'll want to follow Alice down the rabbit hole. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Mar 27, 2016
4/5 98% Zootopia (2016) "The film feels like a riposte to Trump-ism. It also contains some of the best sloth-related humour you will ever see. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Mar 27, 2016
3/5 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) "More befuddled, plot-wise, than just about any other superhero epic of the last decade, Batman v Superman nevertheless deserves points for creating a vision of modern America that feels truly fractured. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Mar 24, 2016
4/5 91% The Witch (2016) "Aware that gender, as much as faith, remains a burning issue, Eggers makes our hearts swell and our brains sweat. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Mar 14, 2016
4/5 86% Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) "The film is simultaneously sweet, simple and savvy. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Mar 14, 2016
4/5 100% The Propaganda Game "Some may find Longoria's wry tone offensive but his playfulness is what make him worth watching. If laughter kills fear, this man is quite the slayer. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Feb 28, 2016
2/5 39% Secret in Their Eyes (2015) "Chiwetel Ejiofor's new movie is a mess. Even the title - why are there more eyes than secrets? - induces brain ache. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Feb 28, 2016
3/5 49% How To Be Single (2016) "True, your average broody careerist might struggle to find a gym-toned-cutie with a secret yearning to be a stay-at-home dad. Then again, what film doesn't encourage fantasies? " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Feb 21, 2016
3/5 55% Triple 9 (2016) "Hillcoat is clearly fascinated by the ever-increasing gap between America's rich and poor. A shame he can't turn that crisis into a credible drama. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Feb 21, 2016
3/5 48% Freeheld (2015) "Moore gets to wear a striking wig but has no dialogue that makes you look twice. And the more Stacie cries over her saintly lover, the more guiltily conscious you become that your own eyes are water-free. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Feb 21, 2016
4/5 89% A Bigger Splash (2016) "A Bigger Splash isn't about how the other half live. It's rooted in something much closer to home. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Feb 14, 2016
2/5 42% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) "It's entertaining at first that our heroine and hero can slay zombies as expertly as they parry quips but the joke wears thin. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Feb 14, 2016
3/5 76% Goosebumps (2015) "Goosebumps combines cynicism with sweetness. If you can get past the slow start, woefully blank hero Zach (Dylan Minnette), and hit-and-miss special effects, you'll be charmed. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Feb 7, 2016
3/5 74% Trumbo (2015) "One day, perhaps, an HBO mini-series will tackle this cultural face-off and blow our minds. In the meantime, check out Trumbo. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Feb 7, 2016
1/5 11% Dirty Grandpa (2016) "Its horrible message: the old are only interesting when they're capable of aping the young. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jan 31, 2016
3/5 73% Youth (2015) "Sorrentino wants to say something profound about illnesses that bury loved ones alive. But the pompous lines kill the mood. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jan 31, 2016
4/5 34% Our Brand is Crisis (2015) "Bullock is hilarious as well as unsettling in the lead. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jan 23, 2016
3/5 94% Creed (2015) "Creed is a sure-fire hit that's impossible to hate but I may have to punch the next person who tells me it made them cry. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jan 18, 2016
4/5 94% Room (2015) "Larson delivers every line to perfection and, as it happens, there's not one weak link in the cast. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jan 18, 2016
91% A War (Krigen) (2016) "Like the anti-war saga In the Valley of Elah, A War explores a misuse of power that has horrific consequences. What's different is that here the crime takes place under our noses and, even more disturbingly, feels justified. " ‐ London Evening Standard
Posted Jan 8, 2016
4/5 78% Bolshoi Babylon (2015) "Given the circumstances, Read has done a wonderful job. Instead of promoting or smearing a celebrated brand he's created a portrait of a workplace that feels both pertinent to Putin's Russia and universal. " ‐ London Evening Standard
