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
Posted Jan 18, 2008
3/5 68% The Magic Flute (2006) "Branagh's imagery is imaginative and the music lifts you. A neat trick. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Nov 29, 2007
4/5 91% Rescue Dawn (2007) "Ray Mears has nothing on Werner Herzog. A rough guide to survival in the cruel, cruel world, with a captivating central performance from Christian Bale. Gripping, emotional and, oddly, gloriously optimistic. " ‐ Total Film

3/5 71% Beowulf (2007) "Both exciting and flat, sexy and absurd. " ‐ BBC.com
Posted Nov 15, 2007
2/5 27% Lions for Lambs (2007) "It's too pious to be entertaining, too polite to be convincing and, like a weapon of mass destruction, takes a lot longer to deploy than 45 minutes. " ‐ BBC.com
Posted Nov 6, 2007
3/5 79% 1408 (2007) "A terrific performance from John Cusack as a cynic on a paranormal mission nudges this towards the higher end of King adaps. Eventually lets itself down, but not before shaking you up. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Aug 31, 2007
3/5 54% Seraphim Falls (2007) "An unremarkable revenge/chase western, bolstered by its name cast, matter-of-fact violence and Toll's pristine photography. Eventually a little pretentious - with Anjelica Huston's cameo the nadir - but if you love oaters, it's just worth the time. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Aug 24, 2007
4/5 57% Becoming Jane (2007) "Think Austen In Amour, à la Shakespeare In Love. A warm, charming, bittersweet romance - destined to make a thousand dates. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Mar 8, 2007
3/5 91% Letters from Iwo Jima (2006) "An elegant improvement on Flags, with terrific performances and heart-in-mouth moments, but little lasting impact. Worth watching but worth not fighting for. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Feb 22, 2007
4/5 51% The Fountain (2006) "Science-fiction meets emotional fact. An intelligent, time-spanning love story that deserves the benefit of any doubt. Watch. And watch again. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jan 26, 2007
4/5 87% The Last King of Scotland (2006) "A smart, searing thriller with blistering performances from McAvoy and Whitaker. Like the best Graham Greene script Graham Greene never wrote. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jan 12, 2007
3/5 58% X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) "Unless you're already dedicated to the X-Men, The Last Stand won't really hold up. " ‐ BBC.com
Posted May 23, 2006
4/5 91% United 93 (2006) "It is emotionally raw yet unsentimental; it shows people at their most pained and inspirational; it is both brilliant and troubling. " ‐ BBC.com
Posted May 16, 2006
2/5 61% Hostel (2006) "Beyond its 'How far can I go?' attitude to violence, Hostel has no reason to exist. " ‐ BBC.com

3/5 80% Cinderella Man (2005) "Crowe is at his best in the ring and while it's hardly surprising that he's a convincing bruiser, he also manages to make a rather one-note character compelling. " ‐ BBC.com
Posted Aug 16, 2005
3/5 40% The Island (2005) "[T]here's plenty to enjoy in the more intimate, character-based moments, if you can cope with the relentlessly overblown action that surrounds them. " ‐ BBC.com

Posted Jan 26, 2005
5/5 98% Mean Streets (1973) "The Godfather made the mob glamorous. Mean Streets made it real. Martin Scorsese's ferocious, grimy 1973 classic is just as good as Francis Ford Coppola's masterpiece, but it shows us criminal life lower down the food chain. " ‐ BBC.com

Posted Nov 16, 2004
3/5 27% Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004) "It's testament to Zellweger's likeability and skill that the film is still enjoyable, but it lacks the element of surprise. " ‐ BBC.com

Posted Oct 6, 2004
3/5 88% A Fond Kiss (2004) "This is believable, intelligent filmmaking. It's just that, considering the makers' pedigree, Ae Fond Kiss... is more of a peck than a smacker. " ‐ BBC.com
Posted Oct 6, 2004
1/5 21% Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004) "A zombie movie as dead-eyed and soulless as its walking dead villains. " ‐ BBC.com
