5/5 84% Much Ado About Nothing (2013) "I can't recommend it highly enough. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Jun 13, 2013
1/5 34% Summer in February (2014) "A plodding, sub-Merchant Ivory costume drama, not terribly convincing even though it's based on a true story, about a romantic triangle in Edwardian Cornwall. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Jun 13, 2013
2/5 39% Admission (2013) "It is ... perilously short on laughs, and the few that do come are generated by Lily Tomlin as the heroine's ferociously feminist mother. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Jun 13, 2013
3/5 55% Man of Steel (2013) "It's a triumph of spectacle over content. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Jun 12, 2013
4/5 95% Behind the Candelabra (2013) "Made for TV usually means 'not good enough for the cinema'. Here's the exception. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Jun 6, 2013
0/5 11% After Earth (2013) "The dialogue is platitudinous and delivered in stilted accents. The structure is that of a very dull video game made by someone who once watched The Lord Of The Rings. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Jun 6, 2013
2/5 66% The Iceman (2013) "Unfortunately, the movie runs out of things to say about its monosyllabic hero within a half-hour, after which the killings become repetitive. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Jun 6, 2013
5/5 75% Populaire (2013) "Not since The Artist has there been a French film as delightful or commercial as Populaire. If you're looking for a happy, feelgood romantic comedy, here it is. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted May 30, 2013
3/5 37% The Purge (2013) "It's clever in the way it takes some disagreeable elements from our own time - fear of racial minorities, envy of wealth, needless aggression and gun crime - slightly exaggerates them and projects them into the near future. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted May 30, 2013
3/5 63% Byzantium (2013) "Byzantium doesn't add enough that's new to the genre. I was never bored by it, but I wasn't excited, either. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted May 30, 2013
0/5 20% The Hangover Part III (2013) "At the screening I attended, not one person laughed. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted May 23, 2013
4/5 64% Epic (2013) "The quality of the animation is exceptional, and will open many eyes - young and old - to the beauty of natural woodland. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted May 23, 2013
0/5 7% The Big Wedding (2013) "Involves four Academy Award winners, all cruelly wasted on roles unworthy of them. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted May 23, 2013
2/5 48% The Great Gatsby (2013) "Luhrmann lovingly titivates the fake and superficial, and never gets round to serving the meat of the novel, which involves cutting into sham and heartlessness. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted May 16, 2013
2/5 33% Deadfall (2012) "Resembles Fargo in its geography and atmosphere, but fatally lacks its sense of humour. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted May 10, 2013
4/5 86% Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) "Abrams approaches the subject-matter with the zest, imagination and humour of Steven Spielberg on top form. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted May 7, 2013
0/5 54% The Look of Love (2013) "Director Michael Winterbottom has achieved the impossible: he has made a biopic of Paul Raymond, Britain's most colourful porn baron, that's unobservant, unerotic and dull. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Apr 25, 2013
2/5 89% Bernie (2012) "I didn't find it very entertaining, but it is at least trying something different. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Apr 25, 2013
4/5 79% Iron Man 3 (2013) "Comic-strip superhero movies are not exactly noted for intelligence, wit or humour. Iron Man 3 is the welcome exception. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Apr 25, 2013
1/5 44% The Lords of Salem (2013) "Overlook the abysmal acting, unattractive nudity, awful dialogue, laughable effects and diabolical direction, and there are a few memorable shocks and images. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Apr 18, 2013
2/5 61% Evil Dead (2013) "There's no suspense, and it isn't scary. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Apr 18, 2013
3/5 51% Promised Land (2013) "A flawed but watchable eco-drama - heavily indebted to a wittier anti-corporate movie, Local Hero, made 30 years ago. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Apr 18, 2013
3/5 48% Olympus Has Fallen (2013) "Some will find it ridiculously entertaining. I found it entertainingly ridiculous. Either way, it's a guilty pleasure. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Apr 18, 2013
4/5 74% Love Is All You Need (2013) "It's a refreshing rarity to see a romcom in which the leads have true chemistry. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Apr 18, 2013
0/5 53% Oblivion (2013) "The film has not a vestige of wit, originality or human interest. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)

Posted Apr 11, 2013
2/5 42% Flying Blind "The plot unfolds in politically correct directions, but it requires the leading lady to make idiotic choices throughout, which make no sense in the context of her intelligence. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Apr 11, 2013
1/5 67% Spring Breakers (2013) "It's the kind of 'experimental' movie hailed as edgy, subversive and transgressive, when in fact it's inept, amateurish and loathsome. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Apr 4, 2013
1/5 34% The Odd Life of Timothy Green (2012) "This is a remarkably bonkers example of Hollywood schmaltz. It's so glossy and gooey, it makes Forrest Gump look like Fight Club. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Apr 4, 2013
1/5 41% Dark Skies (2013) "A baffling bore. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Apr 4, 2013
4/5 78% A Late Quartet (2012) "The film offers first-rate, mostly middle-aged actors in an intelligent screenplay that's decently crafted, covers interesting but unfamiliar ground and has a worthwhile central idea. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Apr 4, 2013
94% Good Vibrations "Any film that can bring tears to your eyes by playing a minor hit from 1978 - Teenage Kicks climbed only as far as number 31 in the UK singles chart - is all right with me. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Mar 29, 2013
4/5 89% In the House (2013) "An elegant, sophisticated black comedy thriller with a lot to say about storytelling, control and manipulation of the truth. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)

Posted Mar 29, 2013
4/5 52% Jack the Giant Slayer (2013) "Its conflation of two old English folk-tales, Jack And The Beanstalk and Jack The Giant Killer, turns out to be among the most enjoyable of fairytale fantasies. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Mar 21, 2013
2/5 70% The Croods (2013) "It's let down by an unfunny script that makes The Flintstones look sophisticated, and a surprisingly irresponsible message to be aimed at very small children. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Mar 21, 2013
3/5 89% Compliance (2012) "I admired its courageous realism, the fact that it dares to be unpopular yet truthful. Unlike most movies, it will give you plenty to think about. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Mar 21, 2013
0/5 19% Identity Thief (2013) "Identity Thief starts off moronic and then goes downhill. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Mar 21, 2013
3/5 36% The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013) "It deserves to enjoy the same kind of acclaim as other adventures in skewering the excesses of showbiz. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Mar 14, 2013

Posted Mar 14, 2013
2/5 43% The Paperboy (2012) "It's difficult to know what's going on, and even harder to care. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Mar 14, 2013
1/5 49% Maniac (2013) "It's hard to escape the feeling that the whole film is just a nasty, voyeuristic exercise in titillation. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Mar 14, 2013
4/5 83% Side Effects (2013) "None of the leading characters is heart-warmingly sympathetic, and this enables Soderbergh to put them through hell without making us feel he's being unnecessarily sadistic. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Mar 7, 2013
2/5 41% Parker (2013) "A mediocre, poorly paced thriller ... " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Mar 7, 2013
2/5 63% Broken (2013) "Mainly worth seeing for a sparky performance by Eloise Laurence, whose cheeky smile lights up the surrounding miserabilism. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Mar 7, 2013
4/5 59% Oz the Great and Powerful (2013) "The movie's strengths are its flamboyantly kitsch design and ingenious, humorous screenplay, calculated to please parents and grandparents at least as much as their progeny. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Mar 7, 2013
0/5 46% To The Wonder (2013) "It's a wonder that To The Wonder ever found a release. Terrence Malick's long, lugubrious film is a prolonged exercise in directorial self-pleasuring. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Posted Feb 28, 2013
1/5 69% Stoker (2013) "The two leading characters are so superficial that we never really know why they do the things they do, which become increasingly bizarre and eventually downright insane. " ‐ Daily Mail (UK)
