X-Men: First Class (2011)

"Any film that sees Professor X downing a yard of ale before chatting up girls down the pub has classic written all over it." Sky Movies

Justin Bieber: Never Say Never (2011)

"Gives an eye-opening account of the creepy mania that surrounds the star, while inadvertently hinting at the dependency of those around Bieber on their fresh-faced cash cow." Sky Movies

Inside Job (2010)

"A straightforward and very shocking account of the meltdown that's guaranteed to give you a healthy jolt of righteous rage." Sky Movies

Tron Legacy (2010)

"Fittingly, Legacy is not overwhelmed by its own technical brilliance, the human heart that beats beneath its polished chrome veneer being felt even over Daft Punk's evocative score." Sky Movies

Megamind (2010)

"Gleefully subverting the standard good vs evil hokum, while delivering an eye-popping adventure with characters you can really root for, Megamind is simply super." Sky Movies

The Kids Are All Right (2010)

"Smart, funny, slyly satirical and wonderfully warm, this deft 'dramedy' is bitter-sweet film-making at its best." Sky Movies

Burke and Hare (2011)

"Wildly oscillating between wacky slapstick and downright unpleasantness -- the sight of the killers slowly suffocating an elderly lady is just too much -- Burke and Hare is sometimes very difficult to like." Sky Movies

Bonded By Blood (2010)

"There's no hiding the fact that Bonded By Blood is ultimately pretty anaemic, giving no further insight into an already over-exposed incident." Sky Movies

Dog Pound (2010)

"Tough, confrontational and thought-provoking cinema that, like its protagonists, deserves to get a fair chance on its release." Sky Movies

Grown Ups (2010)

"Any film that causes you to reappraise the awfulness of Couples Retreat has to be pretty bad." Sky Movies

When You're Strange (2010)

"Occasionally stirring yet strangely inessential, if you're not already a Doors fan, DiCello's film may fail to light your fire. " Sky Movies

Shrek Forever After (2010)

"Much better than its predecessor, but not a patch on the original, Shrek Forever After would be a respectable point for the irritable ogre's tale to come to an end." Sky Movies

Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (2009)

"Despite ... minor gripes, this is Cage's best film in years, an anarchic gumbo of subverted cop thriller clichés and surreal set-pieces that's destined to become a cult classic." Sky Movies

Ondine (2010)

"Driven by Farrell's easy, unaffected performance and his obvious chemistry with the less polished yet suitably winsome Bachdela, this fanciful meld of drama and romance is a consummate cockle-warmer." Sky Movies

Blind Revenge (2012)

"Watching this two-hander feels very much like sitting through a play and although it's a well-acted one, A Closed Book's amateur charms may be lost on moviegoers expecting a lot more flash for their cash." Sky Movies

The Unloved (2009)

"Realised with impeccable craftsmanship, Samantha Morton's directorial debut never puts a foot wrong dramatically, although its unflinching stare at a young life stymied by neglect offers little in the way of comfort." Sky Movies

The Last Station (2010)

"The main attraction is the tortured dynamic in Tolstoy's marriage, and it's played out with a vibrant pathos that's equally funny and sad, making The Last Station an endearing, if not essential, destination." Sky Movies

Crazy Heart (2009)

"It's a shame then that the all-too-familiar story is never as engaging as the two leads, but with performances this strong, Crazy Heart still brings the house down." Sky Movies

Brothers (2009)

"The fine interplay between the three leads builds to a gripping, emotionally devastating finale that offers no easy answers while still arriving at a poignant and satisfying conclusion." Sky Movies

Up in the Air (2009)

"Funny, thought-provoking, uplifting and tragic, Up In The Air is a first class comedy that's not afraid to travel to some difficult destinations." Sky Movies

The Men Who Stare at Goats (2009)

"A disappointingly generic finale gives way to an ingenious final gag, however, with the gleefully anarchic spirit that drives the film leaving a much bigger impression than the patchy story." Sky Movies

Jennifer's Body (2009)

"Likely to strike a chord with the turbulent teens Cody captures so well, this vividly lurid tale has cult movie written all over it and may well enjoy a healthy afterlife if it stiffs at the cinema." Sky Movies

Dead Man Running (2009)

"Neither a total shambles or a triumph, it should appeal to fans of the cockney crime genre. Anyone else may find it a right pain in the Khyber." Sky Movies

Ong Bak 2 (2009)

"Some of the most exhilarating martial arts action to hit screens in recent years. Ong Bak: The Beginning may be little more than a showcase for Jaa's abilities." Sky Movies

Couples Retreat (2009)

"About as much fun as having a holiday ruined by bickering, self-involved couples, this is one romcom you really should retreat from." Sky Movies

Mad, Sad & Bad (2009)

"A flat, glum, uninspired first feature that would struggle to find an audience on Sunday night television, never mind at cinemas." Sky Movies

G-Force (2009)

Crossing Over (2009)

Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience (2009)

"This may be three dimensional poison for Jonas-hating curmudgeons but it's unlikely that any of the band's fans will be asking for their money back." Sky Movies

La Habitación de Fermat (Fermat's Room) (2009)

"The possibility of being squished to a pulp always focuses the mind, although, as this by-the-numbers Spanish thriller proves, it doesn't necessarily make arithmetic any more interesting." Sky Movies

Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel (2009)

"A good effort, but ultimately one that may have been more suited to a TV special than a fully-fledged feature, FAQ... is like that geeky friend you really want to like - if only they'd sort out their BO problem and stop talking about Deep Space Nine." Sky Movies

The Uninvited (2009)

Tyson (2009)

"Mixed with clips and photos from his tumultuous career but no contributions from peers or 'experts', this is a genuinely incisive portrait of a fighter at war with himself." Sky Movies

Two Lovers (2008)

"A noble effort scuppered by an affected, ill-fitting central performance and the director's penchant for ponderous, transparent plotting, this offers a refreshingly unconventional take on the standard Hollywood romance but very little else." Sky Movies

A Summer In Genoa (2009)

"With a stronger third act and less spiritual flounce this could have been something really special, but as it stands its merely a solid entry in the versatile writer/director's CV that will no doubt be eclipsed by whatever he chooses to do next." Sky Movies

Cadillac Records (2008)

"A perfectly serviceable addition to a well-stocked genre that acts as a fine showcase for not only the strong cast but the timeless tunes that made Chess Records a cornerstone of popular music." Sky Movies
