60% Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (2016) Happy to report that Eddy and Patsy have still got it, and the film is 'bloody good fun', the term used to describe the reason why the latter has stayed latched to Edina after all these years ‐ Urban Cinefile

56% Jason Bourne (2016) Gripping from the outset, the most powerful thing about this tense action thriller is that it is intensely personal with a great sense of high stakes and risks ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jul 26, 2016

Posted Jul 23, 2016
96% The Second Mother (Que Horas Ela Volta?) (2015) This is a film in which the minutia matters as we become engrossed in the divergent worlds of the domestic and her employers ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jul 23, 2016
97% Embrace Of The Serpent (El Abrazo De La Serpiente) (2016) Visually stunning, the raw beauty of the landscape is breathtaking, yet the narrative involving two scientists and their search 40 years apart fails to embrace as it should ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jul 23, 2016
84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) A grand scale sci-fi adventure with eye-popping visuals ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jul 18, 2016

Posted Jul 17, 2016
71% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) Thank goodness for Stellan Skarsgard, who splashes lashings of colour on this otherwise routine espionage canvass from John Le Carre ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jul 12, 2016
73% Ghostbusters (2016) the film is not as much fun as it should be ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jul 12, 2016

Posted Jul 9, 2016
91% The Measure of a Man (La loi du marché) (2016) Subtle, voyeuristic and engrossing, with a stellar naturalistic performance by Lindon, this is a film for the discerning cinema lover ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jul 9, 2016
75% The BFG (2016) Utterly charming ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jul 9, 2016
85% Maggie's Plan (2016) It's like a screwball comedy without a linear storyline that meanders through the snakes and ladders of relationships, career imperatives and family dynamics ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jul 9, 2016
36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) Skarsgard's abs, a digitally inhabited jungle and the settings are the key elements of this interesting mix of superhero epic, adventure, creature feature, historical drama buoyed by a touch of lusty romance ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jul 9, 2016
83% Goldstone (2016) The best thing about the film is the mood, which resonates throughout ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jul 9, 2016
86% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) There is something infectious about the spontaneity on display as it captures the joys of self-discovery, exploring life and having fun. If we could only bottle that feeling! ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jun 23, 2016
98% Mustang (2015) Unbridled like wild horses and revved up like the car built for exhilaration, the five young girls at the film's centre exude a contagious enthusiasm for life. ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jun 23, 2016
31% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) For those to whom size matters, this is the film for you! ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jun 23, 2016
42% Mr. Right (2016) The hitman romcom... is pretty silly really, especially when it becomes a senseless bullet-fest. ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jun 14, 2016
73% Miles Ahead (2016) Like the improvised nature of jazz, Don Cheadle's biopic about Miles Davis brings a syncopated view on the legendary musician and trumpet player's life as it scats around his turbulent life. ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jun 14, 2016
94% Finding Dory (2016) It's bright and colourful with a throng of ultra cute marine characters but the film is a pale imitation of its precursor Finding Nemo, never replicating its magic or touching our heartstrings. ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jun 14, 2016
25% Backtrack (2016) Never mind that it is derivative, it is the lack of engagement in the film's first half that is its greatest problem as it struggles to straddle genres from that of the supernatural to thriller. ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jun 14, 2016
58% Me Before You (2016) From tears to laughter, Me Before You is a wonderful weepie that makes you glad you took the trip. ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jun 14, 2016
No Score Yet Anne of Green Gables (2016) A heartfelt retelling of Lucy Maud Montgomery's classic children's story Anne of Green Gables, this Canadian telemovie wonderfully captures all the elements of its young red-haired protagonist. ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jun 6, 2016
38% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) It's loud and brash with a mindless plot involving a portal to another dimension and an intergalactic threat. Who am I to argue with the fans? Besides, the KISS formula (Keep it Simple, Stupid) seems to work in this context. ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jun 6, 2016
72% A Perfect Day (2016) Who says you need bullets and violence to depict the horrors of war? Guided by an armoury of pragmatism, common sense and dark humour, Fernando Leon de Aranoa deals a hand from a different pack of cards; one that successfully manages tone shifts. ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jun 6, 2016
10% Queen of the Desert (2015) As it is, Herzog's film is a bit of a yawn and a tease - leading us into the desert but leaving us high and dry ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted May 31, 2016
57% Money Monster (2016) The shifting nature of relationships is one of the many strengths of this tense, top-drawer thriller that is boosted by the considerable star power of George Clooney and Julia Roberts ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted May 31, 2016
92% The Nice Guys (2016) The tone is offbeat, the juxtaposition of ideas occasionally inspires and goofy moments entertain; yet overall the film never quite satisfies or rises to the level to which it aspires ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted May 23, 2016
97% Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) It's a small film with a big heart and one whose charm resonates and grows on you ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted May 22, 2016
30% Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) It feels as though all the ingredients are tossed into a giant teapot and shaken too wildly, although the film looks wonderful with its imaginative ideas and extraordinary visual effects ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted May 22, 2016
48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) Comprehension overload, too many characters and lack of a single coherent vision are the film's main problems. Nonetheless Apocalypse will thrill the fans ... not withstanding the Hugh Jackman/ Wolverine factor is in short supply. ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted May 16, 2016
84% The Meddler (2016) Delivering much more than you might expect, The Meddler is a thoroughly enjoyable and uplifting film that almost fools us into thinking it's just a bit of fluff... It is also a splendid platform for the ever-wonderful Susan Sarandon ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted May 15, 2016
78% The First Monday in May (2016) The proposition that fashion is art is the subject of this fabulous documentary ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted May 11, 2016
43% The Angry Birds Movie (2016) It is cute and colourful, but a bit too crass - not withstanding its excellent animation and production elements ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted May 8, 2016
68% Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016) What works best are the amusing personal insights, effectively depicted by Tina Fey, whose central character is trying to not only make some sense of the war, but of her own life ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted May 8, 2016
47% The Take (Bastille Day) (2016) Paris makes a stunning backdrop in this no-holds barred thriller in which Idris Elba makes a towering impression as a CIA agent to Richard Madden's street-smart pick-pocket ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted May 8, 2016
7% Mother's Day (2016) Syrupy, manipulative and predictable, Mother's Day smacks of every commercial contrivance with its meshing stories about every kind of mother found in Forrest Gump's box of chocolates. It's a pity to see an excellent cast wasted on such mush ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted May 1, 2016
87% Mia Madre (2016) There is a wave of sadness that engulfs Nanni Moretti's film and some moments resonate, although his Palme d'Or winner The Son's Room in 2001 was far more affecting ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted May 1, 2016
61% The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016) If you liked A Beautiful Mind and The Imitation Game, you are guaranteed to enjoy to this involving and satisfying film in which intellect and emotion form two sides of the coin ‐ Urban Cinefile

Posted May 1, 2016
84% Sweet Bean (An) (2016) Cherry blossoms, sweet bean paste & secrets are ingredients of this involving drama in which a confectioner, schoolgirl & elderly woman cross paths. Simply told with plenty of heart, the film explores the simple joys that relieve burdens & unite souls ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Apr 25, 2016
61% A Month Of Sundays (2015) It's a small film with a personality of its own that engages in a low-key sort of way, mostly due to Anthony LaPaglia's strong central performance ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Apr 25, 2016
90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) Heroes or vigilantes is the question raised in this highly inventive, full-throttle adventure... An agile mind is required to keep up with the never-ending plot twists and leaps; it is refreshing to find genuine originality and flair ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Apr 25, 2016
80% Eddie The Eagle (2016) It's a terrific true story and an inspiring one - about a young boy who dreams of becoming an Olympian. But although the film's heart is in the right place, it struggles to soar to the heights that it deserves ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Apr 16, 2016
95% Marguerite (2016) Based on a true story about a wealthy Baroness with more money than musical talent, it's comic and tragic all at once as the ripple effect of one little deception impacts on a woman's self esteem, her marriage and the fortunes of the hangers on ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Apr 16, 2016
83% Midnight Special (2016) The strength of the film is its enigmatic sense of mystery, even the leap of faith required is at times difficult to maintain ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Apr 16, 2016
12% The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016) The trouble with this third film in the franchise is that its messages are muddled: the premise changes, there is too much going on and the filmmakers have forgotten that we need to care about the characters ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Apr 12, 2016
22% The Boss (2016) Melissa McCarthy fans will enjoy the ride, although this one-joke comedy limits itself within its predictable comic boundaries ‐ Urban Cinefile
