3.5/5 100%

The King and the Mockingbird (2014)

"The pacing may be a little sluggish, the characters a little thin, and the plot little more than a series of setpieces, but the sheer volume of random bizarre ideas means it's mesmerising throughout." ‐ SFX Magazine

Little Shop of Horrors (1986)

"Great songs, exquisite production design, two loveable geek leads, some Gilliam-esque gadgets and Steve Martin as a sadistic dentist all make this a film with something for everyone." ‐ SFX Magazine

Iron Man 3 (2013)

"The first Marvel movie where it looks like the action has been grafted onto a human story, rather than the other way round." ‐ SFX Magazine

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (2012)

"Breaking Dawn - Part Two is an efficient, rewarding finale for the loyalists, and really isn't bad enough to bother the rest of us." ‐ SFX Magazine

Ruby Sparks (2012)

"Directed by the team behind the equally quirky-but-heartwarming Little Miss Sunshine, it's never quite the biting satire you may expect, aiming rather for a Michel Gondry vibe." ‐ SFX Magazine

Doctor Who - Planet of Giants (2003)

"On the production side, 'Planet Of Giants' has some impressive moments. But overall, this is a story with big ideas, but little ambition." ‐ SFX Magazine

Roujin-Z (1991)

"Utterly bonkers, but also very, very sweet, and even has something to say about how society regards the elderly." ‐ SFX Magazine

Space: Above and Beyond (1995)

"The show has some truly brilliant episodes, especially whenever it explores the nature of the In Vitros. Unfortunately, it has just as many downright dull, talky episodes based around contrived sources of friction. " ‐ SFX Magazine

Fright Night (2011)

"You have to wonder whether everybody involved in this remake went in with the mission statement to make the most average vampire movie ever. If so, they did a sterling job." ‐ SFX Magazine

X-Men: First Class (2011)

"The film tries to do too much, to cover too much ground... The result is a film that's very easy to enjoy, but hard to love." ‐ SFX Magazine

Doctor Who - The Sunmakers (1977)

"The satire is rather blunt, and the gags don't make up for a story that's even more about running down corridors than normal." ‐ SFX Magazine

Alice in Wonderland (2010)

"Burton and Wonderland may sound on paper like a marriage made in heaven, but the result is disappointingly bland and half-baked." ‐ SFX Magazine
