4/5 62% High-Rise (2016) "Don't expect a thriller in the seat-edge sense, but you will be thrilled - and repulsed - by this bold, faithful adaptation of Ballard's ever-prescient picture of First World strife. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 17, 2016
4/5 94% Carol (2015) "Mara and Blanchett make for an unforgettable couple in a beautiful film about longing, loss and the confusion and wonder of love. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Nov 22, 2015
4/5 89% What Our Fathers Did: A Nazi Legacy (2015) "My Nazi Legacy becomes horribly gripping. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Nov 12, 2015
4/5 46% Closer To The Moon (2015) "Caranfil's unlikely, odd little film is quietly moving - all the more so because it is true. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Nov 12, 2015
4/5 56% The Program (2016) "This powers on, visually dynamic and, like its compelling antihero, doesn't have an inch of fat on it. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 15, 2015
4/5 No Score Yet Convenience (2013) "A lo-fi Brit com with all the pleasures of an American indie. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 1, 2015
3/5 60% Life (2015) "Doesn't register emotionally in the way it strives for, but is diverting as a portrait of the nascent celebrity industry, with fine performances from Dane DeHaan and Robert Pattinson. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 16, 2015
2/5 52% Escobar: Paradise Lost (2015) "Surprisingly forgettable considering its mesmering villain, although Del Toro sparks the movie into life with what screentime he does get. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 20, 2015
3/5 64% We Are Monster "Contains a stark beauty and a poignant, nagging sense of sorrow. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 27, 2015
4/5 90% Catch Me Daddy (2015) "A bold and uncompromising debut feature from a bright new directing team. There's a question over whether it justifies its own misery, but if you care about homegrown cinema then you have to see it. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 26, 2015
4/5 90% Wild (2014) "A quietly moving coming of age story that resists formula or easy redemption, driven by a strong, unvarnished performance from Witherspoon, who deserves huge credit as both star and producer. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 15, 2015
4/5 27% Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014) "As spectacular and surprising as you would expect from Scott. Its spiritual uncertainty - and lack of triumphalism - perhaps robs it of a truly satisfying, cathartic conclusion, but also makes for a truly modern, thoughtful biblical blockbuster. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 7, 2014
4/5 80% Black Sea (2015) "Though it perhaps inevitably lives in the shadow of some subgenre masterpieces, Black Sea is a superbly shot men-on-a-mission thriller with chest-tightening tension and a striking contemporary resonance. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 4, 2014
4/5 100% Kilo Two Bravo (2015) "Tense, blackly comic and troubling because it's so recent and so real. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Nov 28, 2014
4/5 96% '71 (2015) "The villainy is, perhaps unavoidably, somewhat signposted, but this is a tense, gripping thriller that combines real-world relevance with high-concept entertainment. In a superb ensemble, O'Connell is outstanding. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 9, 2014
2/5 33% Believe "A well-meaning but corny football fable. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jul 24, 2014
3/5 85% Under the Skin (2014) "Odd and sexy, troubling and touching, frustrating and mesmerising, dull and haunting. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 10, 2014
4/5 No Score Yet The Class Of '92 (2014) "An absorbing documentary about a football fairy tale - engrossing for any admirer of the beautiful game, but for United fans, it's unmissable. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 1, 2013
2/5 57% All Stars (2014) "Derivative but occasionally fun. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 28, 2013

Posted Jul 16, 2012
4/5 94% Moonrise Kingdom (2012) "As funny, bittersweet and as distinct as you'd expect from Wes Anderson, a director who helps you know you are not alone. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted May 20, 2012
4/5 60% Resistance "A beautiful, elliptical war film with the haunting qualities of a ghost story. Riseborough is terrific and Gupta proves that he's a talent to watch. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Nov 20, 2011

Posted Jul 11, 2011
3/5 22% Blooded "A compelling look at extremism in all its guises, Blooded boasts some genuine scares despite a narrative structure that allows little room for surprises. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 30, 2011
4/5 94% Passenger Side (2010) "A joy from start to finish. Bissonnette has crafted a unique, funny indie. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 28, 2011

Posted Feb 22, 2011
4/5 88% Blue Valentine (2010) "A raw but beautiful picture of love uniting and dividing: tender, real and heartfelt. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 10, 2011
3/5 66% The American (2010) "A muted thriller, weighed a little too obviously with existential angst. Still, sexy and tense, with a brave, bare performance from Clooney. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Nov 29, 2010
2/5 65% Dog Pound (2010) "Offers a punchy insight to prison life. Unfortunately, it is a familiar and tepid storyline. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 26, 2010

Posted Jul 30, 2010

Posted Feb 19, 2010
3/5 56% Edge of Darkness (2010) "An uneven, somewhat meandering thriller is given emotional pull by Mel Gibson's excellent comeback performance. The lethal weapon hasn't lost it. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 2, 2010
4/5 63% Exam (2010) "A modern morality tale in the sleek guise of a sci-fi-tinged thriller. The setting is modest, the ambition is big. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 8, 2010
2/5 55% The Descent 2 (2009) "An uninspired retread of a horror classic, this tries hard to justify its existence... and fails. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 4, 2009
1/5 27% The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard (2009) "Sometimes this kind of comedy just goes too far into rubbishness to make it back. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 23, 2009
4/5 86% Le Donk & Scor-zay-zee (2009) "A monumental mockumentary from Brit cinema's premier director/actor double act. True, daft, emotional, hilarious. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 9, 2009
4/5 85% Looking for Eric (2010) "Play It Again, Eric... Ken Loach perfectly captures the feeling of football and the need for hope. Touching and hilarious - a blinder. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 12, 2009
4/5 94% In the Loop (2009) "Spinal Tap meets Strangelove. A satirical demolition of Whitehall and Washington: politically astute, hilarious and terrifyingly real. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 17, 2009
3/5 57% Defiance (2009) "An amazing true tale is somewhat diminished by second-hand storytelling: entirely admirable, largely entertaining, and yet curiously hollow. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 9, 2009
4/5 79% Johnny Mad Dog (2011) "Grubby and yet vital, it stays with you. " ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 15, 2008
4/5 59% The Fall (2006) "Beguiling, befuddling, brilliant. It's sure to divide audiences but, for all its ocular opulence and wild fantasy, at heart The Fall is a tender, touching tale about childhood, hope and the power of story. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Oct 3, 2008
3/5 82% Tropic Thunder (2008) "Apparently actors are narcissistic and Hollywood is ruthless... Stiller doesn't say anything we don't know, but stand-out turns from Downey Jr and Cruise make Tropic Thunder very funny for all its flaws. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 19, 2008
4/5 59% RocknRolla (2008) "Forget the tabloids - this cocksure caper shows Ritchie is much more than Mr Madonna, while Butler and Kebbell have talent to burn. Punchy, funny, criminal entertainment. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 5, 2008
2/5 14% Made of Honor (2008) "An inoffensive but bland romantic comedy. " ‐ BBC.com
Posted May 6, 2008
4/5 60% Lonesome Jim (2006) "The world would be a better place if Steve Buscemi made more movies. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Apr 11, 2008
4/5 74% Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (2007) "Another comedy winner; if you have to ask why, it's because it involves the Knocked Up guy. Hilarious - even the Beatles bit, this looks set to be a hit. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jan 18, 2008
4/5 74% Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (2007) "Reilly, one of our best supporting actors graduating to star status, finally bound for glory. " ‐ BBC.com
