4/5 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) [James Wan] has found a way to burrow into your brain and claimed his own area - the hippo-WAN-pus - to pull your puppet strings with red herrings and unpredictable startles.‐

3/5 46% The Take (Bastille Day) (2016) The film's most fun moment is an instance of purely unintentional hilarity. It's a phrase uttered towards the end of the film that is easily the worst line of the year so far‐

5/5 95% The Jungle Book (2016) A fun-for-all-the-family film, but with retractable claws.‐

3/5 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is a punishing experience. But not an entirely unenjoyable one.‐

4/5 90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) I was on the edge of my seat and then I was on the very edge of my seat, and then I fell off my seat and discovered a ledge beyond the edge and I was on the edge of that.‐

2/5 50% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) This film should be 6-7 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi. 8 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi max.‐

5/5 81% The Revenant (2015) You could be eating cake now, Leo. But instead, because of your pointless principles, you're chowing down on raw, bloody animal tissue.‐

4/5 69% The Danish Girl (2015) Let's try to move on from Star Wars if we can ... and instead talk about Eddie Redmayne's er... new hope for Oscar success.‐

4/5 75% The Hateful Eight (2015) Delivers everything you expect - and want - from a Tarantino movie. It is quintessential Quentin. It's Quentinssential.‐

5/5 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) Star Wars: The Force Awakens might just be the best film of the last 30 years or so...‐

2/5 63% Sleeping with Other People (2015) The guy sat directly in front of me stood up, loudly declared to everyone that "This is the worst film I have ever seen in my entire life" and just walked out.‐

3/5 65% Spectre (2015) To say it does fighting and chasing extremely well is really only to say that it does 'being a Bond movie' adequately well. Where it fails is in everything else it tries to do.‐

5/5 89% The Lobster (2016) It may seem like ludicrous nonsense on the surface, but what it has to say about love, fidelity and dependency is more revealing than anything Farrell wears under his kecks.‐

4/5 73% Suffragette (2015) The performances are incredible. The story is powerfully compelling and I left the cinema feeling like an utter s*** just for having an Adam's apple.‐

4/5 61% Legend (2015) In terms of playing two completely separate personalities of twins divided only by a completely invisible split-screen, Tom Hardy absolutely Winklebosses it.‐

2/5 15% The Transporter Refueled (2015) The double standard of sexual exploitation leaves overriding foul-smelling fumes in the air.‐

4/5 67% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) A stylish, sexy, quintessentially-60s spy thriller that puts 'fun' at the top of its hit list‐

3/5 15% Absolutely Anything (2015) It's all on Pegg and his goofy charisma to keep things moving. He may not be omnipotent, but he's gifted enough to save the day.‐ Total Film

1/5 9% Fantastic Four (2015) It's an amazing feat to have produced a movie where every decision made seems to be the wrong one.‐

2/5 16% Pixels (2015) Adam Sandler seems to just be coasting whatever is left of his career, resigned to the fact that his game was over long ago.‐

5/5 98% Inside Out (2015) It is the sweetest, saddest, happiest, powerful-est, imaginative-est and most important-est film of Pixar's output to date.‐

2/5 46% Ted 2 (2015) "Has a lower gag rate and more punchline misses than its predecessor. In short, it's a film that just reeks of having no real purpose."‐

5/5 91% Love & Mercy (2015) Provides proof that Brian Wilson really wasn't made for those times. Or, indeed, these.‐

4/5 62% MI-5 (Spooks: The Greater Good) (2015) This tense, taut and intelligently plotted British thriller makes more generic instalments in the genre - like Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit - seem like a dumb jock movie.‐

5/5 75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) It is likely that this is the best Avengers movie that we'll ever see.‐

3/5 97% Dark Horse (2016) The nags-to-riches journey of Dream Alliance becoming a short-lived racing favourite doesn't exactly set the world alight, but it makes for some triumphant moments.‐

4/5 85% John Wick (2014) A compact, punchy film without an ounce of flab on it ... It's just a short, sharp, bullet-driven bulldozer of a movie that snaps necks and blows out brains.‐

1/5 30% Lost River (2015) It comes across like the college coursework of a film student trying to convince the girl of his dreams that he is 'deep' and that he 'gets stuff'.‐

3/5 26% Jupiter Ascending (2015) This film doesn't live up to its potential to be this year's great big stupid movie joke because, well, it's all rather enjoyable. Intentionally enjoyable. ‐

2/5 83% Testament Of Youth (2015) While the film itself is well-crafted and it contains decent performances, from a film-viewing perspective, the story is deeply flawed.‐

5/5 91% Birdman (2014) We already have the best movie of 2015. I mean, I haven't looked at the schedule for the upcoming year but there's probably not much else coming out, right?‐

3/5 43% The Guvnors (2014) Sadly, the film gets mired in muddied morals and needless flashbacks, spending too long on backstory before finally delivering its brutal third act.‐ Total Film

4/5 84% 22 Jump Street (2014) A film that, despite deliberately following its predecessor's formula exactly, feels even more fresh and just as ludicrously funny.‐

2/5 33% A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) It's a tired opinion, but Seth MacFarlane really does only appeal to fans of Seth MacFarlane... of which, I imagine the number one fan is Seth MacFarlane.‐

4/5 91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) It's a film that serves as a prequel, a sequel and a bridge between the two. And, most of all, it serves as a giant "f ... you" to X-Men: The Last Stand.‐

4/5 73% Neighbors (2014) "There's never any shortage of chuckles, guffaws and laughing LOLs out loud. I think, at one point, I even chortled. And I don't chortle lightly."‐

3/5 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) Exactly what we expect from Marvel now and, as such, this is the first film in its catalogue that doesn't feel particularly fresh or exciting.‐

4/5 23% Need For Speed (2014) Exposition is light, action is quick, stunt-driving is awesome ... this film really does convince that there is a... uh... requirement for haste.‐

3/5 49% RoboCop (2014) A hybrid creation that isn't quite sure which it really is - an original entity or a manufactured automaton. Very much like... well, you get the analogy.‐

4/5 51% The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013) It's hard to hold a grudge ... when the film delivers such a triumphant story filled with just as much hilarity as wonder.‐

2/5 44% The Call (2013) It seems at odds with itself thanks to a generous helping of tropes from two distinctly different genres: fast-paced action thriller and creepy serial killer horror.‐

4/5 93% Captain Phillips (2013) It spends as much time on true-to-life protocols as thrills and spills. And it's a film in which Tom Hanks sweats unattractively from his man-boobs. Talk about uncompromising‐

3/5 69% The Wolverine (2013) You'll be left wishing that it was a fun comic-book movie with some emotional weight, rather than a serious character study with a few exciting scenes.‐

4/5 89% The World's End (2013) The film is as funny and original as Wright and Pegg's previous efforts, even if time and familiarity with the pair's comedy stylings has rendered it not quite as fresh.‐

2/5 55% Man of Steel (2013) You'll believe a man can frown. A lot.‐

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.‐

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.‐

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‐

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.‐
