The Incident (2015)

Rupture (2016)

"Too much time is spent sneaking aimlessly around the building. And when the B-movie reveal finally comes into focus, it feels like a waste of a good set-up." ‐Total Film

The Accountant (2016)

The Comedian's Guide to Survival (2016)

"Balancing selfishness with self-deprecation, Buckley makes for a pitiful but ultimately likeable lead, well-supported by co-stars and cameos." ‐Total Film

Dans la forêt (2016)

"There's no doubt that this is intended to be a challenging watch, but it's one that tests patience more than it tests ideas and pre-conceptions." ‐

Cosmos (2016)

"Bursts of poetry, characters suddenly freezing, bees flying out of a priest's crotch: there's rarely a dull moment, but when it comes to explanation, the sparrow's not the only one left hanging." ‐Total Film

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016)

"Adam Devine is undoubtedly a hilarious guy and expert improviser even if his default mode for both energy and audience sympathy tends to be 'full throttle'" ‐

Suicide Squad (2016)

"[It has]a hardcore, colourful tone that is so much more enjoyable than the epic bleakness of Bats V Supes, but it is still a hardcore, colourful mess" ‐

The Shallows (2016)

"The film never feels like it stops moving forward, much like the Great White itself, which has to keep on constantly swimming or it will die" ‐

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" ‐

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." ‐

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." ‐

Suffragette (2015)

Legend (2015)

Ted 2 (2015)

MI-5 (Spooks: The Greater Good) (2015)

John Wick (2014)

Lost River (2015)
