Son of a Gun (2015)

"Never sure if it wants to be a hard-edged character drama or pacy action-thriller, Son Of A Gun has plenty to admire between the tonal wobbles." ‐Total Film

The Gambler (2014)

"Wahlberg finds his most interesting role since The Departed in a film that's heavy on atmosphere and suspense but shy of a full deck when it comes to characterisation." ‐Total Film

Into the Woods (2014)

"Family entertainment with death, limb-lopping and other horrors. If you go Into The Woods today, you'll be surprised how faithful this is to the dark stage musical." ‐Total Film

Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014)

"Scott, aided by CGI though many sets were constructed, has conjured a vision to make Cecil B. DeMille quake." ‐Total Film

The Drop (2014)

"A sombre, '70s-flavoured crime drama with strong, interior performances from Hardy, Gandolfini and Rapace. Feel the (slow)burn." ‐Total Film

The Skeleton Twins (2014)

"Wiig and Hader give winning, finely nuanced turns in a film that deftly mixes light and dark." ‐Total Film

Nightcrawler (2014)

"Switch off that television and head out to the cinema: Gyllenhaal is sensational headlining a pitch-black satire with its finger on the pulse." ‐Total Film

Life After Beth (2014)

"A romantic-comedy to die for... It's dead funny... etc., etc. DeHaan and Plaza ace it in a sure-footed zombie movie more interested in heart than braaaaains." ‐Total Film

Wilde Salomé (2013)

"Wilde Salomé is passionate and absorbing, though the insertion of lengthy clips from the film might irk viewers who've just watched it." ‐Total Film

Salvatore Giuliano (1962)

"The filmmaking is exemplary, the veracity palpable, as Rosi paints a complex portrait of Sicilian society." ‐Total Film

The Equalizer (2014)

"Washington undoubtedly has the game - he's mesmerising here, however much the movie slides out from under him - but the material has a long way to go to be his equal." ‐Total Film

Gone Girl (2014)

"Doesn't have the heft of Zodiac or the verve of Se7en but Gone Girl is a masterful adaptation and a superior crime-thriller." ‐Total Film

The Firemen's Ball (1968)

"A socio-political satire that thrums with warmth and spontaneity, yet so enraged Communist authorities it was banned." ‐Total Film

Before I Go to Sleep (2014)

"A handsome thriller, absorbing for its duration and with a couple of neat rug-pulls." ‐Total Film

Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari. (The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari) (1920)

"Other areas of innovation and influence are often overstated, but its silent scream still registers." ‐Total Film

The Expendables 3 (2014)

"More sure-footed than Expendables 1 and 2, and considerably more pumped up - it pauses for neither breath nor a change of colostomy bag. Dumb fun." ‐Total Film

Moebius (2014)

"Among the blood, sweat and (ahem) salty tears are musings on desire, family and emasculation, but this is Kim at his most mischievous, the laughs drowning all." ‐Total Film

The German Doctor (2014)

"Well-made and well-acted, Wakolda is let down by rampant contrivances and on-the-nose metaphors." ‐Total Film

"Welcome To New York will madden many but delight the Big Apple auteur's admirers." ‐Total Film

The Deer Hunter (1978)

"It's an American tragedy indebted to Russian literature, alive with detail and ritual and embedding viewers in the souls of men, the heart of a community and the spilled guts of a nation." ‐Total Film

Hercules (2014)

"By the beard of Zeus! Brett Ratner delivers fast, fun thrills to score a sound victory over Renny Harlin's laborious The Legend Of Hercules." ‐Total Film

22 Jump Street (2014)

"Bigger and better - 22 Jump Street joins the exclusive list of sequels that out-gun their originals. We're already knocking at the door of no.23..." ‐Total Film

Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

"There's imagination, spectacle and thrills to spare. There's a freshness here too that comes not only from the structure, but from Edge Of Tomorrow being a shiny new property in this cyclical age of sequels, prequels and spin-offs" ‐Total Film

Venus in Fur (2014)

"It's theatrical but increasingly fascinating as an arrogant director (Mathieu Amalric) auditions an actress (Emmanuelle Seigner) for a stage version of the titular novel about sexual submission." ‐Total Film

The Rover (2014)

"Between this and his work for David Cronenberg, Pattinson is suggesting his career post-Twilight will sparkle like Edward Cullen's skin. Michod, meanwhile, confirms he's a filmmaker of considerable talents." ‐Total Film

Mr. Turner (2014)

"Leigh makes no judgements on his protagonist but instead chooses to place before us a man both ordinary and extraordinary as he shuffles about his daily business." ‐Total Film

Grace Of Monaco (2014)

Next Goal Wins (2014)

"A triumph-of-the-underdog documentary so amusing and inspirational you'll have to Google events to ensure it's not a mockumentary. Back of the net." ‐Total Film

Brick Mansions (2014)

"Favouring vitality over originality, this needless remake of District 13 comes with fleet-footed sequences but plenty of stumbles, and strains far too hard to be 'cool'." ‐Total Film

Frank (2014)

"Fassbender's faceless performance offers a masterclass in body language, and that wide-eyed, open-mouthed mask invites band members, and viewers, to project their own readings." ‐Total Film

Blue Ruin (2014)

"A cunning, suspenseful thriller that bears comparison to the Coen brothers' Blood Simple, Blue Ruin is an impossible-to-ignore calling card from writer/director Jeremy Saulnier. Hollywood awaits." ‐Total Film

Willow Creek (2014)

"Willow Creek's terror tactics are all about what you don't see, while the source of the chills is kept ambiguous: over-active imagination, pissed-off locals or honest-to-God beastie?" ‐Total Film

Transcendence (2014)

"Pfister should be applauded for making a non-franchise property with ideas and aspirations but Transcendence is nowhere near as grand as its title. Gleaming visuals aside, it's a disappointment." ‐Total Film

Pioneer (2014)

"Pioneer features underwater sequences so breathless they'll thrill even James Cameron (director Erik Skjoldbjærg made the original Insomnia) but Petter's truth-chasing is at times too frantic and melodramatic." ‐Total Film

Carrie (2013)

"One of the more solid '70s horror remakes, but it lacks the verve and potency, romance and heartache of the original. Still, the haircuts are a vast improvement..." ‐Total Film

Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)

"The Python team's surreal take on the legend of Camelot bursts with inspired lunacy." ‐Total Film

The Counselor (2013)

"An absorbing thriller that favours vivid characters, profound ideas and Old Testament morals over propulsive plotting and set-pieces. With lots of blood." ‐Total Film

Near Dark (1987)

"Seductively lensed, sparely scripted and superbly performed, this does away with Gothic nonsense to offer a modern take on the undead myth." ‐Total Film

L'uccello dalle piume di cristallo (The Bird With the Crystal Plumage) (1970)

"A smart, cosmopolitan, thoroughly modern whodunit comprised of geometric visuals and pulsating sexual violence." ‐Total Film

Blue Jasmine (2013)

"Blue Jasmine is a handsomely shot (sometimes luminous, sometimes airily naturalistic), structurally deft (flip-flopping between the SF present and the NY past) and terrifically performed (expect Oscar noms) dramedy." ‐Total Film

Vehicle 19 (2013)
