63% Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2008) More complete and satisfying than the original, this fun-filled sequel springboards its endearing animal characters into another hilarious and colourful hair-raising adventure all the family will love.‐ Urban Cinefile

54% City of Ember (2008) Although it starts slowly, there are plenty of rewards in this well crafted family fantasy adventure, as it explores a world in which light bulbs form the sky and a powerful generator acts as its heartbeat.‐ Urban Cinefile

49% Twilight (2008) It's easy to understand how Twilight has become a phenomenon. Superb treatment of Stephenie Meyer's best seller and two compelling lead performances make this Romeo and Juliet vampire saga into an utterly bewitching film‐ Urban Cinefile

24% Four Christmases (2008) A top cast just manages to keep Four Holidays afloat but the script offers too few laughs, and slapstick turns to schmaltz before we've had enough Christmas Cheer.‐ Urban Cinefile

68% Fugitive Pieces (2008) This is a film whose mood lingers.‐ Urban Cinefile

50% Animals in Love (2007) The images and subject matter are mesmerising, yet as a whole, the film feels fragmented . . . the cinematography is extraordinary so it is disappointing that the film as a whole is not more satisfying‐ Urban Cinefile

64% High School Musical 3: Senior Year (2008) There's a likeable freshness about the entire production%u2026 I felt quite energised after watching this contagious, colourful and uplifting musical that merges fantasy and reality together with such zest that we suddenly feel the sky is the limit %u201‐ Urban Cinefile

22% Mad Money (2008) A madcap heist movie with a delectable cast who realise that while money can't buy happiness, it sure as hell can buy everything else.‐ Urban Cinefile

56% Grow Your Own (2007) It's what could be termed a gentle comedy, this story about immigrants trying to blend into the fabric of rural British society; a routinely pleasant small comedy that explores Britain's immigration issues and relevant enough to touch a nerve anywhere‐ Urban Cinefile

55% Australia (2008) The film looks magnificent but is far too long. The star power is dazzling but I didn't believe the central characters or their relationship. Nonetheless, it's an engrossing experience and one whose indelible images of a strikingly beautiful land linger.‐ Urban Cinefile

65% Quantum of Solace (2008) In short, we are not satisfied. For starters, it lacks the heart Eva Green's Vesper gave the previous film. Like Bond, we miss her.‐ Urban Cinefile

17% And Then Came Love (2007) It's lightweight and reasonable likeable, but there's nothing special about this predictable rom com in which a single mother finds her son's sperm donor and then deliberates on the options that life offers her‐ Urban Cinefile

84% Glass: A Portrait of Philip in Twelve Parts (2008) It's as hypnotic as the music he writes‐ Urban Cinefile

29% Nights in Rodanthe (2008) You will get exactly what you are expecting. More or less, in any event. More in the case of the film's heart; less in the case of the last reel, when the storyline and execution dissolves into buckets of schmaltz.‐ Urban Cinefile

61% Gracie (2007) A gutsy performance by Carly Schroeder is the high point of this likeable story about a girl with a dream‐ Urban Cinefile

15% Mirrors (2008) An unexpected twist elevates this well constructed supernatural thriller whose chilling concepts and vivid imagery make it a scary experience.‐ Urban Cinefile

90% Hunger (2008) Overtly political and unashamedly biased, McQueen's devastating film is shocking, disturbing and painful to watch. It is also an extremely powerful piece of cinema‐ Urban Cinefile

88% Roman de gare (2007) Lelouch surprises us at every turn and we never know where the story is going to take us.‐ Urban Cinefile
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2008
64% Traitor (2008) Traitor or Patriot? Terrorist or hero? The answer is subjective and what I like about this complex drama is that we become party to both sides.‐ Urban Cinefile

60% Center Stage: Turn It Up (2008) It might be formulaic and predictable, but there's plenty of appeal in this energy-filled film about reaching for your dreams. Set in the world of dance, the story is as much about passion as it is about ballet and hip hop.‐ Urban Cinefile

42% Death Race (2008) It's all pretty senseless and senseless is how I felt at the end of it all, after being party to a sadistic and deadly race that relies on the killing of its participants for its entertainment.‐ Urban Cinefile

72% Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour (2008) For the teenage girl target market, there is no question the film delivers as it alternates between onstage performances and backstage insights‐ Urban Cinefile

68% Snow Angels (2007) Impressive for the mood it creates, the film may not totally satisfy, but the characters are richly depicted and reflect the snowy winter chill that surrounds them‐ Urban Cinefile

94% Pygmalion (1938) There's something special about this first English film version of George Bernard Shaw's play, before it became a musical‐ Urban Cinefile

88% The Spirit of the Marathon (2008) This rousing and involving documentary explores different facets of the marathon and why some find it easy to get hooked. It is clear that the marathon is much more than an interest. It is a passion, an obsession and a way of life ..‐ Urban Cinefile
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2008
54% Choke (2008) More quirky than funny, this perverse satire chomps into a sandwich filled with issues like sex and belonging. Pushing the envelope every which way, this adaptation of Chuck Palhniuk's fourth novel is out to shock, confront and offend, which it does,‐ Urban Cinefile

86% Men's Group (2008) It's a powerful film that is often as unexpected as life itself.‐ Urban Cinefile
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2008
13% The Women (2008) A juicy exploration of women's roles in the 21st century -- at work, at home and in the bedroom and although men figure in the storyline (natch), it is women-only who grace the screen. Three generations of them.‐ Urban Cinefile

86% Dominick Dunne: After the Party (2008) I couldn't stop watching this riveting documentary about a man so obsessed by celebrity that he became one. But the story doesn't end there. Wealth, fame, power and love nose-dive on life's slippery dip.‐ Urban Cinefile

No Score Yet Monkey Puzzle (2008) An impressive debut by director Mark Forstmann, who collaborates with screenwriter Stephen Davis to bring us a tense and involving adventure in which the psychological ramifications play the biggest part.‐ Urban Cinefile

37% How to Lose Friends & Alienate People (2008) Like its humour, the film's charms also sneak up on us, and as we take this unlikely, hiccup-filled journey with Sidney, he surprisingly goes from obnoxious to endearing and we are cheering him on from the sidelines‐ Urban Cinefile

62% Brideshead Revisited (2008) This revisiting of Evelyn Waugh's novel is successful in part in that it firmly envelops both its characters and us into a cloud of Catholic claustrophobia. But Julian Jarrold's film is so plodding and overlong, that by the time it reaches its resolution,‐ Urban Cinefile

71% The View From Greenhaven (2008) I loved every minute of this instantly involving film in which our hearts smile, weep and turn corners just like the train that carries its passengers to its mystery destination.‐ Urban Cinefile

No Score Yet Crooked Business (2008) Grabs us by the scruff of our neck and takes us deep into a murky world full of scallywags, tough guys and seriously crazed crims who bumble, tumble and shoot their way through hell and high water.‐ Urban Cinefile

88% Young@Heart (2007) It will make you feel wonderful, and if you're like me, whose emotional barometer responds in the positive with tears, take plenty of tissues.‐ Urban Cinefile

No Score Yet Je reste! (I'm Staying!) (2003) A love triangle with a different slant, 3 is a Crowd has plenty to recommend it with its original screenplay and irresistible leading lady.‐ Urban Cinefile
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2008
78% Burn After Reading (2008) A dizzyingly enjoyable turn by the Coen Brothers that toys with espionage, adultery, blackmail and murder with a darkly comic edge, Burn Without Reading is a compelling combo of political thriller and sex farce.‐ Urban Cinefile

16% Max Payne (2008) There are guns blazing, mysterious winged creatures, a symbolic tattoo, an elusive blue elixir, an unresolved murder and big stunts, yet Max Payne is surprisingly lacklustre.‐ Urban Cinefile

14% My Best Friend's Girl (2008) It's coarse and funny, but there's something really endearing about this twisted romantic comedy in which the protagonist excels at being a self-proclaimed emotional terrorist‐ Urban Cinefile

55% Body of Lies (2008) Lies and consequences form the heart of this bold, hard-hitting drama in which people are used as commodities, while Big Brother keeps a watchful eye -- both DiCaprio and Crowe inhabit their characters totally‐ Urban Cinefile

95% Strictly Ballroom (1992) Listen to the rhythm of your heart in Strictly Ballroom, where tears and laughter blend seamlessly in an extravagantly theatrical story about love, dreams and overcoming your fears.‐ Urban Cinefile

90% Le fils de l'épicier (The Grocer's Son) (2008) Much of the joy of Eric Guirado's beautifully judged film lies in the way he allows us to become part of the characters' lives‐ Urban Cinefile

61% The Duchess (2008) It seems Princess Diana was not the only royal whose marriage comprised three people. This cinematic and emotionally potent drama set in the 18th century and based on a true story, looks at a menage a trois that is filled with compelling elements‐ Urban Cinefile

40% Beverly Hills Chihuahua (2008) It's cute alright, with wild ideas, funny lines and a central premise that reinforces loyalty and being true to yourself. Beyond the obvious frivolity‐ Urban Cinefile

43% The House Bunny (2008) Strictly for blondes who like pink, this ultra girlie chick flick meets the criteria for its target audience with likeable characters searching for acceptance as they are. If you take the film on its own level, it is a lot of fun, and teenage girls‐ Urban Cinefile

61% Journey to the Center of the Earth (2008) Giant fossilised mushrooms, flying fish with massive teeth, glowing bluebirds, a rollercoaster ride on an underground mine railway and magnetic floating rocks are some of the ingredients of this 3D adventure take on Jules Verne's classic sci-fi novel . .‐ Urban Cinefile
