3/5 79% Furious 7 (2015) "If you gave a 15-year-old boy $250million and told him to go away and make a movie, the result would probably look like this. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Apr 3, 2015

Posted Mar 27, 2015
3/5 29% Get Hard (2015) "[An] occasionally hilarious and constantly filthy comedy featuring more penis references than a PhD in human biology. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Mar 27, 2015
3/5 83% Cinderella (2015) "The story is as enchanting as ever, the handsome cast doesn't miss a beat, while the costumes and set design are wonders to behold. But the movie's sheer flawlessness turns out to be a flaw in itself. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Mar 27, 2015
2/5 17% The Gunman (2015) "The film's real fault is its 'hero', a glum, sour-faced sociopath who it's almost impossible to root for. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Mar 20, 2015
3/5 28% Insurgent (2015) "Much like the last film, the dialogue and the action suffer from a keen sense of lifelessness. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Mar 20, 2015
4/5 86% A Brilliant Young Mind (2015) "Take the story of a young maths prodigy, add three notable performances, subtract any of the by-the-numbers mawkishness you might expect, and the result is X+Y, a small gem of a Brit flick. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Mar 13, 2015
2/5 60% Run All Night (2015) "It's dull enough to make you yawn but too loud to let you fall asleep. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Mar 13, 2015
3/5 56% White Bird in a Blizzard (2014) "Shailene Woodley stars in a mystery thriller/coming-of-age drama that earns its third star from a kicker of a twist ending. " ‐ Daily Record (UK)
Posted Mar 6, 2015
88% Still Alice (2015) "Never once veering into heavy-handed sentimentality, it's a film to break your heart. " ‐ Daily Record (UK)
Posted Mar 6, 2015

Posted Mar 6, 2015
3/5 32% Chappie (2015) "The dialogue is simplistic but the film is atmospheric and fitfully entertaining, thanks largely to the charms of Visser and Sharlto Copley, who plays Chappie via motion capture. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Mar 6, 2015
2/5 56% Focus (2015) "It all adds up to an entertaining first half hour or so before the plot begins in earnest and the fun factor starts to droop. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Feb 27, 2015
3/5 48% Cake (2015) "With Aniston on this form it's almost good enough to banish memories of The Bounty Hunter, Wanderlust and even Just Go With It. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Feb 20, 2015
3/5 64% The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015) "While not without its charms, Marigold 2 is a pretty naked cash-in. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Feb 20, 2015
2/5 39% Two Night Stand (2014) "The makers were aiming for a how-we-date-now rom-com. Instead, they've made a film that might have seemed hip 10 years back but now seems dated, cold and cynical. " ‐ Daily Record (UK)
Posted Feb 20, 2015
4/5 95% Love Is Strange (2014) "There's lots of charm, from the looks Ben and George give one another, to the easiness of their shared company. " ‐ Daily Record (UK)
Posted Feb 20, 2015
5/5 97% It Follows (2015) "A sense of dread envelopes every scene thanks to combination of Mitchell's slow, measured tracking shots and the stunning score from Disasterpeace. " ‐ Daily Record (UK)
Posted Feb 19, 2015

Posted Feb 13, 2015
1/5 26% Jupiter Ascending (2015) "The only things likely to ascend during the Wachowskis' latest sci-fi soap opera will be your eyes, which may actually swivel in exasperation up and over, allowing you to see your own brain. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Feb 6, 2015
2/5 63% Son of a Gun (2015) "Although the hectic genre-swapping action should keep you marginally entertained, you'll be able to guess precisely what's going to happen long before it actually does. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Jan 30, 2015
2/5 90% Wild (2014) "It's not a particularly interesting journey - although the scenery is terrific - and the movie's flow is constantly interrupted by some jarring flashbacks, with Laura Dern playing the hiker's mother. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Jan 16, 2015
94% Whiplash (2014) "Compelling, compulsive and excruciatingly funny, you can't take your eyes off the screen. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Jan 16, 2015
3/5 72% American Sniper (2015) "Eastwood is still making great films, with the 84-year-old's recent resumé including such historical treats as Changeling, Jersey Boys and Invictus. But, unfortunately, this isn't one of his finest moments. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Jan 16, 2015
4/5 96% Argo (2012) "Much like his earlier directorial efforts, Gone Baby Gone and The Town, Affleck delivers a blockbuster with brains that's populated by nicely rounded characters. " ‐ Daily Record (UK)
Posted Jan 13, 2015

Posted Jan 5, 2015
3/5 79% The Theory of Everything (2014) "It looks and feels like utter cornball but the sheer commitment of the stars makes the whole thing deeply watchable. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Jan 5, 2015
3/5 89% The Drop (2014) "The plot, setting and supposed twists are all mightily familiar but it's worth a punt due to Tom Hardy and the late James Gandolfini. " ‐ Daily Record (UK)
Posted Jan 5, 2015

Posted Jan 4, 2015
4/5 92% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) "Like most of Anderson's films -- and Gustave himself -- the film is rather pleased with itself, but its exuberant humour and pacy plot keep it accessible while Fiennes delivers his funniest role ever. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Jan 2, 2015
2/5 91% Birdman (2014) "A self-indulgent and generally tedious luvvie comedy where smug has been substituted for smart. It's a bit like those mediocre films pumped out by Woody Allen in the 90s. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Jan 2, 2015
5/5 60% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) "The third and final instalment in the all-conquering series has got everything -- an engrossing story, a near-overdose of thrills and spills, and a cast of uniquely memorable characters. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Dec 16, 2014

Posted Nov 28, 2014
2/5 34% Horrible Bosses 2 (2014) "Calling it unfunny doesn't quite do it. It's as if the writers set out to make a movie to actively offend anyone with a sense of humour. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Nov 28, 2014
5/5 98% Paddington (2015) "Paddington isn't just the film of the year, it might actually be one of the finest family films ever made. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Nov 28, 2014
1/5 24% Third Person (2014) "What does it all mean? Not very much, I suspect, with the cast sombrely delivering lines about trust and frailty while starring broodily into the middle distance. " ‐ Daily Record (UK)
Posted Nov 14, 2014
1/5 16% Nativity 3: Dude Where's My Donkey? "It's more a case of dude, where are the laughs as the hit British comedy series returns for a third, unwelcome installment. " ‐ Daily Record (UK)
Posted Nov 14, 2014
3/5 65% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) "It might make economic sense for Lionsgate Pictures to carve the novel in two but it means this movie is all built-up with a distinct lack of excitement. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Nov 11, 2014
5/5 98% Mr. Turner (2014) "I confidently predict Timothy Spall will be lifting a Bafta, if not an Oscar, for his brilliant performance as 19th-century painter JMW Turner in this affecting biopic. " ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Oct 31, 2014

Posted Oct 24, 2014
4/5 72% Palo Alto (2014) "The story tends to meander but the kids' ups and downs are delicately observed and the performances, especially from Roberts, are never less than believable. " ‐ Daily Record (UK)
Posted Oct 17, 2014
2/5 8% The Best Of Me (2014) "Bad boy meets good girl, families get in the way and tragedy follows before the emotionally-contrived ending. " ‐ Daily Record (UK)
Posted Oct 17, 2014
2/5 67% Dolphin Tale 2 (2014) "A shapeless and aimless film is padded out by a trite coming-of-age plot involving Nathan Gamble as Sawyer. " ‐ Daily Record (UK)
Posted Oct 3, 2014
3/5 22% Dracula Untold (2014) "Oh for the days when a vampire had fetid breath, feasted on virgins and could turn into a bat to terrorise villagers from his castle. " ‐ Daily Record (UK)
Posted Oct 3, 2014
85% Tony Benn: Will and Testament "The late, great Labour maverick is examined in an engrossing and affectionate documentary bound to be lapped up by audiences from across the political spectrum. " ‐ Daily Record (UK)
