Saving Private Ryan (1998)

"The result, I am sorry to say, is that Saving Private Ryan seems almost banal in its achievement, a film that sacrifices humanity for technical wizardry." ‐London Evening Standard

Elf (2003)

X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

"X-Files, Xbox and X-Men - this brave new world suffers from a surfeit of X's. For those of you who think that X indicates buried treasure this latest instalment is probably best avoided." ‐Daily Express (UK)

I Don't Know How She Does It (2011)

"Parker's anti-Carrie Bradshaw messiness is coupled to a horse-like grin that is both sentimental and overcooked. I don't know how she gets away with it." ‐Daily Express (UK)

The Firm (2009)

"The best things about this are spanking dialogue and razor-sharp slang and the plethora of new faces it introduces to the screen. But as far as the impact is concerned Love has bottled out." ‐Daily Express (UK)

Insomnia (2002)

"Christopher Nolan's impressive third film, after Following and Memento, deploys the idea of an all-pervasive light to befuddle the deductive process and expose the corruption of the soul." ‐London Evening Standard

A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001)

"It will probably please neither lovers of the late film maker's cerebral work, or fans of the incorrigible populist's crowd-pleasing blockbusters." ‐

In the Mood for Love (2001)

"A genuinely wonderful movie; at once old-fashioned and entirely contemporary, subtly erotic, effortlessly cool." ‐London Evening Standard

Eyes Wide Shut (1999)

"This valedictory production is a victory for its maker's unending quest to make his reach exceed his grasp." ‐London Evening Standard
