2/5 35% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) The CGI animals already look dated beside the wonders of the recent Jungle Book movie, and it's not nearly as much fun as it should have been.‐ WOW247

3/5 31% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) Ticks all the right boxes in terms of character, spectacle and alien ass-kicking action.‐ WOW247

3/5 20% Yoga Hosers (2016) While there is an undeniable element of self-indulgence that some may find off-putting, the film nonetheless succeeds on its own terms.‐ WOW247

3/5 76% Elvis & Nixon (2016) The script gleefully plays up the absurdity, with Elvis receiving strict instructions not to touch Nixon's candy bowl - and then immediately eating all the President's M&Ms.‐ WOW247
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2016
4/5 73% The Keeping Room (2015) An engaging and atmospheric western that gains an extra level of interest from adding a female-centred angle to a familiar genre.‐ WOW247

Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2016
1/5 7% Mother's Day (2016) This is comfortably the worst of Marshall's holiday-themed movies, and that's really saying something. Avoid like your life depends on it.‐ WOW247
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2016
4/5 92% The Nice Guys (2016) Riotously entertaining action-comedy that combines old-school detective thrills with laugh-out-loud humour and blackly comic violence.‐ WOW247
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2016
3/5 57% Money Monster (2016) Marginally more successful as a media satire than a hostage thriller, but it misses the opportunity to really stick the knife in.‐ WOW247

2/5 30% Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) Depp's irritatingly shrill Mad Hatter is as difficult to listen to as he is to look at.‐ WOW247

5/5 96% Sing Street (2016) Carney's captivating combination of catchy songs and compelling characters is so charming you won't want it to end. Surely set to be one of the films of the year.‐ WOW247

3/5 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) Don't be put off by lukewarm reviews. It's a lot closer to the giddy joy of Captain America: Civil War than the tedious, incoherent slog of Batman V Superman.‐ WOW247

2/5 67% Kill Command (2016) As robo thrillers go, this has its moments, but the mechanical script could have used a little more in the way of human warmth.‐ The List

3/5 44% The Angry Birds Movie (2016) While not quite on the level of The Lego Movie, this is an energetic and entertaining adventure that won't ruffle the feathers of any dragged-along adults.‐ WOW247
Read More | Posted May 11, 2016
3/5 62% Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) Though the character interplay is consistently amusing, the film fails to deliver any actual belly laughs and even its attempts at gross-out humour feel half-hearted.‐ WOW247
Read More | Posted May 6, 2016
3/5 20% I Saw the Light (2016) Despite some structural wobbles and a disjointed script, this is held together by a barn-storming central turn from Tom Hiddleston and some terrific performance scenes. ‐ WOW247
Read More | Posted May 5, 2016
4/5 52% Demolition (2016) Combining black comedy and difficult emotion, this is an engaging, sharply written drama about human connection, anchored by an expertly-pitched performance from Gyllenhaal.‐ WOW247

2/5 17% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) Right from the start, it's clear that director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan cares more about the effects than the plot, script and characters.‐ WOW247
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2016
4/5 84% Midnight Special (2016) This gripping and engaging sci-fi chase thriller plays like vintage Spielberg filtered through slow-burning, arthouse sensibilities.‐ WOW247

2/5 50% Hardcore Henry (2016) The relentless action rapidly becomes exhausting, while the often sickening violence is regularly made even more unpleasant by the film's casual misogyny‐ The List

2/5 29% My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016) It's surprising it's taken 14 years to get around to a sequel, especially given that all it does is reassemble the exact same cast and add a few jokes about FaceTime.‐ WOW247
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2016
2/5 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Everything surrounding the central fight is a mess, thanks to an incoherent plot and over-stuffed script that's burdened by its need to set up future Justice League movies.‐ WOW247

4/5 61% High-Rise (2016) Uncompromising, exceptionally bleak and shot through with dark humour, this is an extraordinary piece of work that shows Wheatley at the very top of his game.‐ WOW247

4/5 90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) Superbly acted and brilliantly directed, this is a terrifically entertaining thriller that more than lives up to the hype.‐ WOW247

1/5 25% London Has Fallen (2016) Between its sadistic violence, idiotic script and charisma vacuum of a leading man, this is pretty much unwatchable.‐ WOW247

4/5 90% Green Room (2016) Stylishly directed and impressively acted, this is a gripping, grisly, gory gift for genre fans. Saulnier's next film can't come soon enough.‐ WOW247
Read More | Posted Feb 25, 2016
3/5 36% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) This gross-out action comedy gleefully pushes the limits of bad taste humour, achieving almost sublimely surreal results in the process.‐ WOW247
Read More | Posted Feb 25, 2016
4/5 58% Urban Hymn (2017) Keeping tight control of the tone throughout, Caton-Jones (who describes the film as 'a sort of Ken Loach musical') maintains an effective balance of strong social realism and feel-good elements.‐ The List

3/5 73% Miles Ahead (2016) What Miles Ahead lacks in biographical detail, it makes up for in attitude, offering an impressionistic and entertaining snapshot that captures the spirit of Davis' life and career.‐ The List
