4/5 74% The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013) Regaining the epic scope and portentousness of The Lord of the Rings and bringing some brilliant new additions to Tolkien's text, this is visually rich, emotionally engaging, compelling filmmaking at its best. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 90% Philomena (2013) Surprisingly harrowing at times, the film avoids becoming an overwrought melodrama through the balance in characterisation between Martin's cynicism and Philomena's faith. - One Room With A View EDIT
