4/5 100% Bunch of Kunst (2017) Just like the Sleafords themselves, Christine Franz's film is unpretentious and unfiltered, and it brilliantly captures the momentum and excitement of a band as they make their breakthrough.‐ Radio Times

3/5 82% We Are X (2016) Splits, suicides, a brainwashing cult and industrial quantities of hairspray and make-up all play their part in the story, with the fragile Yoshiki fulfilling the role of tortured artist to perfection.‐ Radio Times

2/5 74% Headshot (2017) The close-quarters fight choreography is convincingly realistic and captured deftly on camera, but this lacks the cheer-on appeal of Uwais's breakthrough movie The Raid and too often feels like an exercise in overkill.‐ Radio Times

4/5 75% The Lovers And The Despot (2016) There is the odd glaring gap in how events are presented (Shin isn't around to speak for himself), but this story is a real one of a kind.‐ Radio Times

4/5 93% The Last Man On The Moon (2016) Mark Craig's film is all the more affecting for weaving such achingly personal testimony into what is a thoroughly absorbing account of the last great era of human endeavour.‐ Radio Times

3/5 92% Hype! (1996) While the seemingly endless procession of obscure bands does get a bit wearisome, it does at least mean this isn't the Kurt Cobain-skewed, cash-in feature you might expect.‐ Radio Times

2/5 68% God Help the Girl (2014) A spirit of youthful naivety does permeate the tale, but while it's sure to charm some, others may find it all insufferably twee.‐ Radio Times

3/5 92% Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me (2013) There's a distinct lack of archive footage of the band in their prime, but the director makes a good stab at bringing to life the studio sessions that produced such treasures as The Ballad of El Goodo.‐ Radio Times

4/5 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) A film every bit as imaginative, colourful and cleverly constructed as their plastic inspiration.‐ Radio Times

3/5 No Score Yet Bring Me the Head of the Machine Gun Woman (Tráiganme la cabeza de la mujer metralleta) (2012) Sure it's grimy, gimmicky and over all too quickly, but Fernanda Urrejola's titular killer babe - an impossibly sexy, semi-clad, bullet-spraying fury - is a creation assured cult-icon status.‐ Radio Times

3/5 70% Jianyu (Reign of Assassins) (2010) A female warrior attempts to leave her killing days behind in this polished but overblown Chinese period swordplay adventure.‐ Radio Times

5/5 93% Skyfall (2012) Mendes's film certainly stands out, and there's a sense that things may be slightly different from now on. This is no reboot, more a recalibration of the format, or perhaps even, as Bond himself deftly puts it, "a resurrection".‐ Radio Times

2/5 0% Christmas in Wonderland (2007) Swayze is given little to work with as the bewildered dad, while Tim Curry's shameless turn as a Royal Mountie with an inexplicable Scot's accent is sheer panto excess.‐ Radio Times
