The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water (2015)

"What it delivers is what it promises: a battery of deliciously daft, fast-firing, self-mocking, flavour-rich gags, flung with such zest you don't mind if they're disposable." ‐Total Film

Blind (2015)

"Playful, unpredictable and occasionally pervy, Vogt's directorial debut is a perception-teasing provocation, made slippery with mischief but also accessible by its warm wit and winning lead." ‐Total Film

Catch Me Daddy (2015)

"Blending the mythical resonances of The Searchers with lyricism and bristly realism, Wolfe's harrowing, haunting dispatch from Brit-cinema's undergrowth is strong meat: emphatic evidence of a bold talent's arrival." ‐Total Film

Big Hero 6 (2014)

"The sweet, witty main pairing focuses a potentially busy, derivative super-group tale." ‐Total Film

Enemy (2014)

"Jake Gyllenhaal gives not one magnetic, alert yet opaque performance here. He gives two." ‐Total Film

The Theory of Everything (2014)

"This is a poignant, probing, often cheekily playful portrait of an ordinary marriage of opposites sustained over decades in extraordinary circumstances." ‐Total Film

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014)

"With measure and muscle, Lawrences Jennifer and Francis nail the job of selling the long, twisting road towards revolution." ‐Total Film

The Case Against 8 (2014)

"The music busts a gut straining for weepie affect, but you might shed a few yourself when the five-year battle reaches its jubilant, justified climax." ‐Total Film

The Possibilities Are Endless (2014)

"An honest, artful and empathetic account of resilience emerges, without resort to power-of-love clichés." ‐Total Film

The Woman in Black (2012)

"The balance between edge-of-vision shadows and DanRad's screen-centre face puts the care into scares." ‐Total Film

The Overnighters (2014)

"A boldly provocative tale of flawed humanity and hardship." ‐Total Film

Aliens (1986)

"A subtle, spooky movie with teeth becomes a subtlety-bashing war movie." ‐Total Film

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989)

"It dodges the pitfalls of message-heavy teen movies and skirts the spite of the dumb-and-dumber era it arguably helped birth. Add two innately loveable leads and you can see it takes some smarts to sell something quite this daft." ‐Total Film

Nas: Time Is Illmatic (2014)

"A wide-reaching tale locks into focus: one about hope through music, told with style, feeling and economic punch." ‐Total Film

Bjork: Biophilia Live (2014)

"While ecology and evolution provide loose themes, Björk's impish glee ignites a fabulously off-piste affair." ‐Total Film

The Loved Ones (2012)

"The pacing is choppy but Byrne serves a thick, satisfying stew of savagery and surprise sympathy, generously flavoured by lashings of black humour. " ‐Total Film

Soul Boys Of The Western World (2015)

"The salad days thrill; after the rush has gone, the comedown is surprisingly moving." ‐Total Film

Violette (2014)

"The focus on wordsmith over words is spectacularly well-served by Devos, whose volcanic expression of inner frustration will put you off writing forever." ‐Total Film

20,000 Days on Earth (2014)

"Cave's wittily hard-boiled voiceover and on-stage potency complete the picture: a properly artful portrait of an artist in total command of his myth." ‐Total Film

Ballet Boys (2014)

"As a window on a world, Ballet Boys is solid. As dramatic exploration, it lacks attack." ‐Total Film

A Most Wanted Man (2014)

"An old-school spy thriller, Corbijn's taut le Carré riff does its genre proud. Hoffman commands every second." ‐Total Film

The Grand Seduction (2014)

"McKellar's take on class is a fib too far: low-grade laughs can't sweeten the sour message that any crap job will placate working folks. Think: Local Zero." ‐Total Film

If I Stay (2014)

Million Dollar Arm (2014)

"Hamm and Bell keep this hooey light, but you can't lob a ball in here without hitting notes played better in Jerry Maguire and Slumdog Millionaire." ‐Total Film

Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me (2013)

"The downside of their cult stature is a shortfall of footage, but the music is uncannily gorgeous, well deployed and copious: for non-initiates, it'll be like finding lost treasure." ‐Total Film

The Art Party! (2014)

"Performance, satirical fantasy and a better class of banner mix under one message - that Gove's policies oppress kids' needs for self-exploration." ‐Total Film

Lilting (2014)

"It's the fully invested leads and graceful, poetic direction that give this study of emotional interiors its subtly heartbreaking power." ‐Total Film

A Promise (2014)

"Gabriel Yared's score works hard to rouse emotion but when the most exciting scene involves a rat, the erotic frisson clearly isn't happening." ‐Total Film

Hide Your Smiling Faces (2014)

"Providing the magnetic counter-balance for the plot's drift, Ryan Jones and Nathan Varnson give natural performances as small-town brothers rocked by a friend's death." ‐Total Film

Thunder and the House of Magic (2014)

Who Is Dayani Cristal? (2014)

"Bernal seems sincere but he's playing a role he can step out of, which distracts from Silver's deeper ambitions: to humanise and anatomise a heated political issue." ‐Total Film

All This Mayhem (2014)

"Martin turns a cautionary tale into rollercoaster material: with extraordinary home-video footage capturing the Pappas' rise and fall with an immediacy that leaves you stirred, shaken and moved." ‐Total Film

Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure: Otway the Movie (2013)

"While hardly searching, Barker's portrait is infectiously affectionate." ‐Total Film

Love Me Till Monday (2014)

"Between Maguire's winning lead and the lively portraits of workmates on the lash, there's a sitcom in the making here." ‐Total Film

Begin Again (2014)

"The gentle lightning of Once doesn't strike twice for Carney, but his latest music movie has charm beneath its slick surface - and Knightley and Ruffalo harmonise just fine." ‐Total Film

The Golden Dream (La Jaula De Oro) (2015)

"Quemada-Díez doesn't play soft, and the stinging climax really sticks with you." ‐Total Film

Mistaken for Strangers (2014)

"An affecting, hilarious portrait of chalk/cheese sibling love, with a sweet twist: Tom thinks he's a loser, but his film is a winning one-off." ‐Total Film

Leave To Remain (2014)

"Goodison's ace is his cast: when he just lets us watch them, their natural warmth provides all the conviction needed." ‐Total Film

Camille Claudel, 1915 (2013)

"What emerges is a demanding but hypnotic, probing portrait of an artist denied her art, by a director in total command of his." ‐Total Film

Pulp: a Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets (2014)

"An earthy, affecting and droll celebration of the unique alignment of influences that forged a great band - and the thrusting live footage rams Pulp's greatness home." ‐Total Film

X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

"With style, heart and thrills, Singer has nailed the most ambitious X-flick yet. Popcorn pizzazz combines with X2's emotional sweep and something extra: a platform for the X-Men's screen survival." ‐Total Film

A Touch of Sin (2013)

The Wind Rises (2014)

"Laced with poignancy and portent, Miyazaki's epic is an elegy for lost dreams - and a farewell befitting an animation master." ‐Total Film

My Cousin Vinny (1992)

"The regional stereotypes in Dale Launer's broad script aren't so laudable, but the on-screen talent merits a retrial: Tomei talks up a storm and Pesci terrorises thinly spread gags into near-shape." ‐Total Film

Patema Inverted (2014)

"From the texture of the underground havens to the idea that our leads have to - literally - cling to each other lest gravity tears them apart, it's a wonder of detail and ingenuity." ‐Total Film
