Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014)

"A new franchise low, featuring flailing actors, dull, incomprehensible action and murderous Autobots that act like whiny, petulant dicks." ‐ SFX Magazine

Dark Shadows (2012)

The Woman in Black (2012)

"Radcliffe couldn't have known that the editing process would place his not-disgraceful performance within a noisy, clattering movie about a man who is either suicidally brave or clinically deaf. " ‐ SFX Magazine

Case 39 (2010)

"Case 39 is too bland, with scares that are so polite they almost take their shoes off to avoid dirtying the hallway carpet of your mind." ‐ SFX Magazine

Carriers (2009)

"A thoughtful effort, a meditative treatise on the ethics of survival in a land where all hope is lost." ‐ SFX Magazine

The Descent 2 (2009)

"It's hard to argue that this is anything but a scary yet slightly superfluous sequel." ‐ SFX Magazine

Paranormal Activity (2009)

"If you've spent any amount of time bemoaning the current state of horror films, slagging off Platinum Dunes remakes and mocking the CGI-and-tits tosh that passes for cineplex terror these days, you owe it to yourself to go and see this film." ‐ SFX Magazine

City of Ember (2008)

"Ultimately, this journey to rekindle the fire of humanity fails to burn bright enough, leaving only the unpleasant taste of ashes." ‐ SFX Magazine

Push (2009)

"Going to see this film doesn't make much sense. It's obviously been cynically conceived as a franchise starter, but abruptly flicking to the end credits seemingly mid-movie is not a good way to start one." ‐ SFX Magazine
