Posted May 26, 2016
3.5/5 49% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) " The worst of this trilogy, but in this case 'worst' doesn't mean 'terrible'. " ‐ The Standard
Posted May 19, 2016
2.5/5 8% Mother's Day (2016) "Mother's Day is a 50/50 proposition, like cooking dinner for your mum but making her do the dishes. " ‐ The Standard
Posted May 6, 2016
4/5 90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) "I feel sorry for DC fans. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Apr 28, 2016
3.5/5 79% Eddie The Eagle (2016) "It's closest cousin is Cool Runnings, and while it won't endure like its Jamaican relative, Eddie The Eagle is an enjoyable Olympic underdog tale that's hard to hate. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Apr 21, 2016
4/5 95% The Jungle Book (2016) "It's a perfect mesh of subject matter and special effects ... by and large it is a beauty to behold. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Apr 7, 2016
2/5 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) "The best? Affleck in the Batsuit. The worst? Eisenberg's Lex Luthor and much of the first two hours of the film. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Mar 24, 2016
4.5/5 98% Zootopia (2016) "A surprisingly sharp examination of racial profiling, prejudice, equality and stereotyping, and how often can you say that about a kids movie? " ‐ The Standard
Posted Mar 17, 2016
3.5/5 90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) "Opens like an indie romance, swerves into Saw territory, settles into light comedy, adds large helpings of horror and sci-fi, and wraps the entire thing up in mystery. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Mar 10, 2016
4/5 88% The Big Short (2015) "In some ways, it's a flashier version of another Lewis adaptation Moneyball, which made another dull topic - baseball statistics - surprisingly interesting. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Mar 3, 2016
5/5 96% Spotlight (2015) "Succeeds because it puts the audience alongside the reporters, allowing us to share the incredulity, disgust and frustration. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Feb 25, 2016
2.5/5 49% How To Be Single (2016) "Like binge-watching some weird composite of Girls, New Girl, 2 Broke Girls, and some other show with "girl" in the title. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Feb 18, 2016
4/5 83% Deadpool (2016) "A wonderfully puerile claret-soaked swear-fest (and) hands down the funniest superhero movie ever. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Feb 11, 2016
3.5/5 73% Suffragette (2015) "An overly straightforward plot, ditching any complexity for an awkward simplicity, but thankfully the cast is top-notch and the characters are compelling. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Jan 29, 2016
4/5 75% The Hateful Eight (2015) "Ending issues aside, this is another worthy addition to Tarantino's back catalogue. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Jan 21, 2016
3/5 82% The Revenant (2015) "Either a flawed masterpiece or a director losing his mind and disappearing up his own butt while he makes his cast and crew suffer on the journey. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Jan 20, 2016
3.5/5 59% Sisters (2015) "Sisters is the Fey-Poehler feature-length team-up many have been waiting for. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Jan 8, 2016
1.5/5 9% Point Break (2015) "When compared to this remake, the original Point Break looks like Citizen Kane. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Jan 2, 2016
3.5/5 76% The Good Dinosaur (2015) "Good enough, even if it's not as Pixar perfect as we've come to expect. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Dec 26, 2015
4/5 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) "The prequels don't stand a chance - this is as good as fans could have hoped for and better than we deserve. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Dec 16, 2015

Posted Dec 3, 2015
2.5/5 55% Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015) "The jokes are just as easy and fall just as flat, but the film is saved somewhat by a cracking last act. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Nov 26, 2015
3/5 70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) "The studio, in its efforts to maximise profits, has unnecessarily split one book and created one great film and one not-so-great finale. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Nov 19, 2015
3.5/5 65% Spectre (2015) "Spectre impresses early on but loses its way and struggles to a satisfying conclusion. Still, at least it's better than Quantum Of Solace. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Nov 12, 2015

Posted Oct 30, 2015
4/5 91% Bridge of Spies (2015) "If Spielberg and Hanks' filmographies were social structures, Bridge Of Spies would be satisfyingly upper-middle class. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Oct 22, 2015
3/5 85% The Walk (2015) "The Walk is not a bad film - in fact, it's reasonably enjoyable with a fantastic final act. But it pales next to Man On Wire. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Oct 15, 2015
3/5 75% Black Mass (2015) "Given Depp's performance and the high-calibre cast around him, it's disappointing Black Mass isn't better. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Oct 8, 2015
4/5 92% The Martian (2015) "For anyone who loves science - which should be everyone except for anti-vaxxers and climate change denialists - this is fascinating and enjoyable. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Oct 1, 2015
1.5/5 27% Pan (2015) ""Why?" is a question that comes up a lot while watching this abysmal prequel that no one asked for. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Sep 24, 2015

Posted Sep 13, 2015
2/5 17% Pixels (2015) "Pixels is an idea that worked better in other formats - none of which are a movie connected to Adam Sandler and Kevin James. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Sep 10, 2015

Posted Sep 3, 2015
3/5 64% Ricki And The Flash (2015) "Lacks the laughs to be a comedy and is missing the bite to be a strong drama. So why watch this? For Streep, of course. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Aug 27, 2015

Posted Aug 20, 2015
4/5 67% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) "A remake no one was asking for, but in that category it is more like Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes films - stylishly successful - than Hammer's noisy flop The Lone Ranger. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Aug 13, 2015
2.5/5 9% Fantastic Four (2015) "Admirable in its different-ness, but it's sadly unmemorable and unsurprising. And Dr Doom looks weird. Really, really weird. And not in a good way. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Aug 6, 2015
3.5/5 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) "We tend to forget Tom Cruise is a seriously impressive old-school action star in an age where CG trickery has largely made that role somewhat redundant. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Jul 30, 2015
3.5/5 81% Ant-Man (2015) "With its small-scale action and tongue-in-cheek irreverence, Ant-Man is a welcome relief from the large-scale destruction and save-the-universe shenanigans of recent superhero movies. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Jul 16, 2015
3/5 63% Magic Mike XXL (2015) "Come for the stripping, but stay for the laughs. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Jul 9, 2015
1.5/5 26% Terminator Genisys (2015) "T5: Genisys is as bad as its spelling and the worst Terminator movie to date. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Jun 30, 2015
2.5/5 46% Ted 2 (2015) "For the few jokes that work and the team-up of Ted, Wahlberg and Seyfried, this follow-up is worth a look but only if you loved the original. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Jun 25, 2015
5/5 98% Inside Out (2015) "Picking the greatest Pixar movie was already difficult, but the arrival of Inside Out just made it all the harder. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Jun 13, 2015
3.5/5 72% Jurassic World (2015) "Bigger, faster, louder ... (but) the marvel and wonder of Jurassic Park can never be matched. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Jun 11, 2015
3/5 33% Entourage (2015) "No effort is made to engage new fans. In fact, there's no real effort to make this anything more than a super-long episode of the series. " ‐ The Standard
Posted Jun 4, 2015
2.5/5 50% Tomorrowland (2015) "It's kind of like an Apple Watch - a new invention that's flashy but isn't practical or as impressive as it should be. " ‐ The Standard
Posted May 28, 2015
3.5/5 53% Woman in Gold (2015) "This story has probably been better and more accurately told in at least three documentaries (but) none of those retellings had the marvellous Mirren. " ‐ The Standard
Posted May 21, 2015
4/5 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "Despite the fact we didn't need another Max Max movie, we have one. Thankfully it's awesome. " ‐ The Standard
