Finding Vivian Maier (2014)

"Why make a film about an unknown nanny from New York? The answer is because Vivian took photos that are as beautiful and powerful as those of any of the greatest photographers." ‐The Sun (UK)

Grand Central (2014)

"The scariest part of this film is when the beepers indicating excessive exposure to invisible death rays go haywire. But director Rebecca Zlotowski focuses more on an underpowered love story." ‐The Sun (UK)

Bobby (2016)

"With the 50th anniversary of England's win fast approaching, this is a chance to revisit how Bobby made football a beautiful game." ‐The Sun (UK)

How To Be Single (2016)

"Wilson and Johnson seem to be in different movies from each other and the film proves coupling shock-value comedy and traditional romance can be disastrous." ‐The Sun (UK)

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016)

"Only a camp Matt Smith as Lily James's unwanted suitor raises any laughs. The rest of the cast escape with their pride in tatters." ‐The Sun (UK)

Concussion (2015)

"It is a passionate outsider-film driven by Smith's considerable acting power." ‐The Sun (UK)

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016)

Dark Places (2015)

"Made-for-TV direction and a twist which makes Gone Girl's revelation seem totally plausible dims Dark Places. " ‐The Sun (UK)

The Hateful Eight (2015)

"With The Hateful Eight, Tarantino has undoubtedly confirmed his reputation as a genius story teller." ‐The Sun (UK)

Miss You Already (2015)

"It's the gallows humour delivered with warmth by Collette, Drew Barrymore, Dominic Cooper and Paddy Considine that prevents this becoming unbearably maudlin." ‐The Sun (UK)

Some Kind of Beautiful (2015)

"Rather than Pierce giving a lecture on how to be a better person, he should have stuck to bedding the half-sisters played by Jessica Alba and Salma Hayek." ‐The Sun (UK)

Trainwreck (2015)

"It will be the funniest film you go to see this year." ‐The Sun (UK)

Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck (2015)

"If, like me, Nirvana were a big part of your youth this "first official" documentary is essential viewing." ‐The Sun (UK)

Good Kill (2015)

"Remote, relentless and lacking the human touch. That's a description of drones that could also be applied to this Ethan Hawke movie." ‐The Sun (UK)

Wild Card (2015)

"It was a risk asking Statham to do more than just bash baddies... it kind of pays off." ‐The Sun (UK)

The Voices (2015)

Radiator (2015)

"Radiator often feels a bit too much like a Radio 4 play, but it makes for a good one about the difficulties faced by pensioners." ‐The Sun (UK)

Age Of Kill (2015)

"Age Of Kill isn't just Taken, it's outright theft." ‐The Sun (UK)

Second Coming (2014)

"We see a family at its best and at its worst, with the grumpy mealtime silences and the playful banter. Much of this is down to the first-rate performances from Elba and Marshall." ‐The Sun (UK)

Anti-Social (2015)

"Only at the end does Anti-Social get going with a genuinely tense finale. Or perhaps I was just glad that everyone had stopped talking." ‐The Sun (UK)

Ooops! Noah is Gone... (Two by Two) (2015)

"Two By Two is more fun than Russell Crowe's Noah, but if you miss this it's not the end of the world." ‐The Sun (UK)

The Diary Of A Teenage Girl (2015)

"[Bel Powley], Alexander Skarsgård as the boyfriend, and Kristen Wiig as the mum all display the subtlety not in the script." ‐The Sun (UK)

Miss Julie (2014)

"It starts off as a will-they-won't-they as to whether Chastain's baron's daughter will sleep with Farrell. It ends up as a will-they-won't-they ever shut up. Should have been called Shouting Miss Julie." ‐The Sun (UK)

Love & Mercy (2015)

"Paul Dano, as the young Brian, does a better job of conveying his madness than John Cusack as the older version, who falls for Elizabeth Banks' car saleswoman." ‐The Sun (UK)

The Little Death (2015)

It Follows (2015)

"While the idea might sound slightly ridiculous, Jay and her friends are all so authentic that this stylish flick remains totally believable throughout." ‐The Sun (UK)

Face Of An Angel (2015)

"Rather than making a movie about the perplexing murder of Meredith Kercher, director Michael Winterbottom has decided to make one about him, him, him." ‐The Sun (UK)

The Signal (2014)

"Up-and-coming British actress Olivia Cooke and Aussie heart-throb Brenton Thwaites look more confused than the audience in this sci-fi drama." ‐The Sun (UK)

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water (2015)

"The gags are delivered to rapid fire, so you're only half way through groaning at one before the next has made you smile." ‐The Sun (UK)

Beasts of No Nation (2015)

"This film, which has a tiny cinematic release ahead of its main run on Netflix, is relentless in its depiction of everyday callousness." ‐The Sun (UK)

3/5 78%

Kill the Messenger (2014)

"The first half of the movie captivates as it runs through his impressive investigation. But the fallout from Webb's scoop is less enthralling and the story loses traction as it focuses on his crumbling personal life." ‐The Sun (UK)

3/5 64%

Trash (2015)

"The Richard Curtis script has Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen running about Rio evading cliched baddies - and they are outshone by the wonderfully energetic young trio, who turn muck into brass." ‐The Sun (UK)

Son of a Gun (2015)

"Even a vampish Vikander can't make the perfectly pleasant JR exciting. In truth he's more son of a nun." ‐The Sun (UK)

Point and Shoot (2014)

"What makes the film worthwhile is that VanDyke realises he's self obsessed and reveals he wasn't alone in covering his own glory." ‐The Sun (UK)

Testament Of Youth (2015)

"This incredibly emotional film looks at one young woman who saw both her brother and fiancé volunteer to fight in the trenches." ‐The Sun (UK)

National Gallery (2014)

"National Gallery is a snooty version of those BBC fly-on-the -wall series such as Airport." ‐The Sun (UK)

Enemy (2014)

The Cobbler (2015)

"The problem with this movie, like so many Sandler films, is that it tries to be a heartwarming tale while at the same time being offensive." ‐The Sun (UK)

Welp (Cub) (2014)

The Lobster (2016)

"All so weird, intriguing and occasionally amusing. Unfortunately, director Yorgos Lanthimos tries to claw out too many ideas leading The Lobster to drift and go off the boil." ‐The Sun (UK)

45 Years (2015)

"Director Andrew Haigh builds perfectly to the finale and refuses to give in to the obvious verbal fireworks of Hollywood." ‐The Sun (UK)

The Program (2016)

"Stephen Frears, whose previous work includes The Queen, fails to tease out the moments of great drama." ‐The Sun (UK)
