3/5 57% Attack On Titan: Part 2 (Shingeki no kyojin endo obu za warudo) (2015) The actors are self-conscious and dreadful, but their fringes are undeniably impressive, and the film has a schlocky B-movie appeal, propelled by terrific special effects ...‐ Guardian

3/5 25% The Hero of Color City (2014) It should appeal to the little ones, but there's not much here for the over-sixes.‐ Guardian

1/5 13% The Pyramid (2014) Levasseur understands the claustrophobia of being locked inside a stuffy pyramid with collapsing floors and sand traps. Unfortunately for him, Indiana Jones turns out to be incompatible with Alien, and the bad acting and atrocious script don't help.‐ Guardian

3/5 58% Ping Pong Summer (2014) It's gawky and awkward, but just like Rad's breakdancing worm, this one gets better as it goes along.‐ Guardian

3/5 50% War Story (2014) Jackson is wise to keep Keener's pushy, desperate Lee in centre focus.‐ Guardian

4/5 No Score Yet Gare Du Nord (2013) Unscripted honesty and amateur performances hold your attention, just as the improbable yet weirdly plausible love affair between Mathilde and Ismaël is given vitality and passion by two utterly believable performances from Garcia and Kateb.‐ Guardian

1/5 0% Tamla Rose (2013) All dozen of the songs are dubbed. Badly. And with fake crowd sounds (constant applause, etc).‐ Guardian

4/5 96% Muscle Shoals (2013) A stubborn charmer whose life was a magnet for tragedy, Hall is the emotional centre not only of the Muscle Shoals sound but of this film.‐ Guardian

2/5 67% A Magnificent Haunting (Magnifica presenza) (2012) Pietro's struggle to reconcile fiction and reality is just about charming enough to hold this frustratingly unresolved and lightly uncomic film together.‐ Guardian

4/5 94% Okami kodomo no ame to yuki (The Wolf Children Ame and Yuki) (2012) It's a fairytale in a real-life setting, photorealistically drawn in shifting light that rivals Monet or GTA5.‐ Guardian

3/5 No Score Yet Rurôni Kenshin: Meiji kenkaku roman tan (Rurouni Kenshin) (2012) Behind the adolescent storylines gleams a well-shot swordplay spectacular, featuring a scene-stealing turn from Munetaka Aoki as the Little-John-meets-Ryu-from-Street-Fighter-II sidekick with the 8ft slab of blunt metal.‐ Guardian

2/5 51% Hateship Loveship (2014) Like the world's longest advertisement for cleaning products, Hateship Loveship might well have come with the tagline: scrub your way to a better life.‐ Guardian

4/5 83% The Armstrong Lie (2013) It ... succeeds as a probing look into the mechanics of an epic lie, and because of the emotion at its heart.‐ Guardian

2/5 7% Are You Here (2014) You Are Here's moments of dramatic clarity are swarmed by strange ideas that don't make much sense when examined at closer range.‐ Guardian

2/5 25% 009 Re: Cyborg (2013) We're in a post-9/11 world plagued with terror attacks. Is it an American corporate conspiracy? Or the work of a deity? Cue the obligatory second-half metaphysical blather.‐ Guardian
