Posted Oct 8, 2015
50% Tomorrowland (2015) Tomorrowland is strong on character, action and a general sense of wonder, but it needs to take a good, hard look at itself when it comes to tying up plot strands in a satisfying manner. ‐ WOW247
Posted Oct 7, 2015
4/5 82% Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015) A charming and superbly made teen comedy-drama that's both laugh-out-loud funny and deeply moving. ‐ WOW247
Posted Oct 1, 2015
2/5 61% Legend (2015) Unfortunately, though the film is unquestionably worth seeing for Hardy's performances, it's badly let down by a poorly written script and a misguided framing decision. ‐ WOW247
Posted Oct 1, 2015
4/5 44% Irrational Man (2015) An engaging and darkly funny comedy-drama that feels like Crimes and Misdemeanors filtered through Match Point. ‐ WOW247
Posted Oct 1, 2015
3/5 73% Everest (2015) Worth seeing for its terrifying action sequences and its stunning visuals, but it never delivers the expected emotional gut punch. ‐ WOW247
Posted Oct 1, 2015

Posted Oct 1, 2015
4/5 84% The Walk (2015) An utterly breathtaking experience, so much so that if you're even remotely scared of heights, you may want to think twice about seeing the film. ‐ WOW247

3/5 48% The D Train (2015) This engaging and well-acted indie impactfully alters the standard bromance narrative, being as pleasingly unexpected as it is excruciating. ‐ The List
Posted Sep 14, 2015
1/5 71% The Bad Education Movie (2015) Sadly, there's very little of any merit here, unless you're a Whitehall completist interested in seeing prosthetic recreations of his balls on multiple occasions. ‐ The List
Posted Aug 21, 2015
4/5 94% Best Of Enemies (2015) Watching the modern day clips, you keenly feel the loss of both Vidal and Buckley, although this riveting, impressively crafted and thought-provoking film at least provides a fitting tribute. ‐ The List

Posted May 26, 2015
3/5 88% A Fuller Life (2014) This entertaining documentary paints a vivid portrait of Fuller's life and career, though the structure of the film means that it's disappointingly light on analysis of his work, particularly in terms of his place in film history. ‐ The List
Posted May 11, 2015
3/5 57% The Emperor's New Clothes (2015) The Emperor's New Clothes takes aim at a handful of specific targets - primarily wage inequality and corporate tax avoidance - and scores a number of very effective hits. ‐ The List
Posted Apr 25, 2015
3/5 25% The Divide (2012) The Divide is extremely nasty and relentlessly bleak but it's worth seeing if you like that sort of thing. ‐ ViewLondon
Posted Apr 9, 2015
3/5 46% Boychoir (2015) This is a well made, emotionally engaging drama that captivates thanks to a likeable cast and some impressively staged performance sequences. ‐ The List
Posted Feb 25, 2015
2/5 34% Blackhat (2015) While there's some fun to be had in the urgent, explosive action sequences, Mann's characteristic style can't conceal the screenplay's lack of substance. ‐ The List

Posted Feb 2, 2015
4/5 74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) Vaughn's direction is slick and stylish throughout and he orchestrates a number of dazzlingly audacious, thrillingly violent set-pieces that are both shocking and hilarious. ‐ The List
Posted Jan 26, 2015
3/5 74% TinkerBell and the Legend of the NeverBeast (2014) Like its predecessors, it's an entertaining adventure that should play well with its young target audience without annoying dragged-along adults. ‐ The List

4/5 90% Wild (2014) Wild is a powerfully moving portrayal of a woman's physical and emotional journey that serves as a perfect companion piece to the likes of Into the Wild and Tracks. ‐ The List
Posted Oct 14, 2014
3/5 22% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) This fast-paced slice of action adventure will satisfy fans but is as loaded with fromage as the film's much salivated over 99-cheese pizza. ‐ The List
Posted Oct 13, 2014
3/5 64% The Rewrite (2015) An entertaining comedy with a nicely delivered message about second chances. ‐ The List
Posted Oct 7, 2014
3/5 43% Effie Gray (2015) Ultimately, this is an enjoyable, if slightly sluggish biopic that overcomes its flaws thanks to Thompson's way with dialogue, although it doesn't tug on the heartstrings as surely as you might hope. ‐ The List
Posted Oct 7, 2014
4/5 61% Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (2014) This is a highly entertaining family comedy, with the commendably short runtime ensuring it doesn't wear out its welcome. ‐ The List
Posted Oct 6, 2014
4/5 71% What We Did on Our Holiday (2015) You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll probably book a holiday to the (beautifully shot) Highlands. ‐ The List
Posted Sep 22, 2014
2/5 23% Think Like a Man Too (2014) Ultimately, despite a handful of fairly amusing moments, this is a disappointing comedy, suffering from a surfeit of characters. Still, at least it's mercifully shorter than the first movie. ‐ The List
Posted Sep 15, 2014
3/5 65% Life Of Crime (2014) Life of Crime is strong on character and swagger, but hampered by a frustratingly slight plot and a general lack of suspense. ‐ The List
Posted Sep 1, 2014
2/5 69% They Came Together (2014) Sets about skewering rom-com clichés in gleeful fashion, though the results are mixed at best. ‐ The List
Posted Sep 1, 2014
4/5 86% Night Moves (2014) Engaging and provocative, this is a fiercely introspective thriller from writer-director Kelly Reichardt with a pair of superb performances from Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning. ‐ ViewLondon
Posted Aug 28, 2014
3/5 25% As Above, So Below (2014) A suitably tense chiller that delivers the requisite shocks and scares, though slightly overplays its hand in the middle section. ‐ The List
Posted Aug 27, 2014
3/5 60% The Grand Seduction (2014) Despite some occasional wobbles, this is a charming small-town comedy in the Ealing tradition, while Douglas Koch's attractive cinematography is almost enough to make you consider relocating to Newfoundland. Almost. ‐ The List
Posted Aug 26, 2014
4/5 72% Dinosaur 13 (2014) Todd Douglas Miller's riveting documentary tells the true story of the legal battle surrounding 'Sue', the world's largest, most complete T-Rex skeleton and the thirteenth ever discovered. ‐ The List
