4/5 84% Much Ado About Nothing (2013) "Whether you are a fully fledged Shakespeare scholar or an iambic pent-amateur, [this is a] film that concentrates first and foremost on keeping its audience entertained. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Jun 12, 2013
3/5 48% The Great Gatsby (2013) "Luhrmann basically invites us to the world's greatest party, but it's one that slowly sours over the course of the following two hours. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted May 24, 2013
3/5 86% Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) "It goes quickly, it goes loudly and it goes spectacularly. The only problem is that it never seems to live up to the franchise's original mission statement and go boldly " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted May 4, 2013
4/5 79% Iron Man 3 (2013) "A summer blockbuster that, in this era of saturating trailers and set-piece spoiling TV spots, genuinely takes you by surprise. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Apr 24, 2013
4/5 61% Evil Dead (2013) "This could easily have been the best demon possession film released in decades. Instead it is just a very effective, still-terrifying, evil retread. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Apr 19, 2013
4/5 48% Olympus Has Fallen (2013) "Once the film stops taking itself too seriously and gives in to over-the-top entertainment, it becomes a vastly superior movie - albeit one with some head-shakingly stupid moments. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Apr 16, 2013
1/5 29% G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) "The most fun I have ever had watching one of the worst films I have ever seen " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

Posted Mar 11, 2013
4/5 59% Oz the Great and Powerful (2013) "It may not have much courage in its adherence to the 1939 classic, [but] the film still manages to find both a brain and heart somewhere along the way. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Mar 1, 2013
4/5 86% Manborg (2013) "Manborg works first and foremost by being genuinely, legitimately funny. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Feb 24, 2013
2/5 62% Hitchcock (2012) "All we mostly get to see is the sad, silent contemplation of an old, weary, prosthetically constructed man " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Feb 24, 2013
4/5 86% Wreck-it Ralph (2012) "A very clever, delightfully funny and visually stunning Disney film. And yet we end up watching it having already seen its potential to be something much more enticing. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Feb 24, 2013
3/5 37% Hyde Park on Hudson (2012) "Even Murray, who never fails to be the most watchable actor in any film, can't prevent Hyde Park On Hudson from being too insipid. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Feb 24, 2013
4/5 100% Victim (1961) "The intensity of Bogarde's performance, not least where he confesses to wife Sylvia Syms his homosexual desires, transcends the film's well-intentioned cautiousness. " ‐ Total Film

2/5 60% The Last Stand (2013) "Arnie stomps his way through a role in which every punch looks clumsy and every line of dialogue sounds like it has been learnt phonetically. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Jan 28, 2013
4/5 31% Gangster Squad (2013) "It's basically the movie adaptation of the trashy comic-book adaptation of The Untouchables. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Jan 11, 2013
4/5 80% Pitch Perfect (2012) "It is both refreshingly funny and teen-panderingly cheesy. Ladies and gentlemen ... it seems we have here what all the young kids these days refer to as a 'mash-up'. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Dec 19, 2012
4/5 62% Jack Reacher (2012) "While the film does revel in eye-rolling cliché ... there is one important difference that makes up for all of it: it doesn't take itself too seriously. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

Posted Dec 11, 2012
3/5 64% Hit So Hard (2012) "While this film documents drummer Patty Schemel's struggle with drug addiction, you can't help but feel that her main role in rock 'n' roll history has been as a first-hand witness to events more important and interesting than her own story. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Nov 18, 2012
4/5 66% Cloud Atlas (2012) "Overall though, it is a hugely ambitious and impressive undertaking, the mere attempt of which should be applauded, let alone the lengths at which the Wachowskis et Tykwer actually achieve this vision. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Nov 15, 2012
3/5 91% The Sapphires (2013) "Those turned off by the cutesy poster boasting glamorous wannabes in sequin dresses may be pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable the film is as a whole - it turns out this is no teen fantasy for Gleeks. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

Posted Sep 27, 2012
3/5 90% The Fighter (2010) "While Bale turns in a 5-star performance, his character's story bobs and weaves around Wahlberg's simpler, steady efforts. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Sep 27, 2012
2/5 13% Yogi Bear (2010) "It's a terrible, dumb, unimaginative film that really isn't worth the price of a cinema ticket even with ... the excellent Road Runner short that comes before it. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Sep 27, 2012
2/5 20% The Rite (2011) "[Hopkins] stumbles through his entire acting range - from lazy, stilted line delivery to balls-out mentalist improvisation. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Sep 27, 2012
3/5 79% Chalet Girl (2011) "It's hard not to instantly forgive all the script's occasional faults and just be swept up in the feel-good nature of such a charming, easily-likable release. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

Posted Sep 27, 2012
2/5 32% Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011) "The action ... ranges from fun swashbuckling, to tedious parrying, to outright terribly edited, CGI funk that completely defies any kind of physical presence. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Sep 25, 2012
4/5 86% X-Men: First Class (2011) "Magneto used to be a globe-trotting Bond-a-like and Xavier was a beer-chugging ladies man? Admit it, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart suddenly seem much more interesting. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Sep 25, 2012
4/5 49% Super (2011) "[Not] an easily digestible movie but this is ... the point - in a world where everything isn't as cut and dry as 'good versus evil', rationality is increasingly rare. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

Posted Sep 25, 2012
4/5 83% Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011) "It's of massive benefit ... to have many of the best British actors carrying this dense, convoluted plot through its many twists and knots. " ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Posted Sep 25, 2012
