Posted Oct 19, 2012

Posted Mar 15, 2010
4.5/5 83% Avatar (2009) "One of the most exhilarating, barmy and eye-wateringly gorgeous movies of the decade. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Dec 11, 2009
3/5 54% Disney's A Christmas Carol (2009) "Zemeckis has succeeded is transforming a staid and over-familiar story into a rip-roaring and viscerally powerful special effects chase-movie. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Nov 6, 2009
3/5 81% Michael Jackson's This Is It (2009) "Die-hard supporters of Jackson will find much to admire in This Is It, however non MJ fans may find the movie's inability to reach beneath the surface of the singer unsatisfying, as well as troubled by the slightly grubby genesis of the movie. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Oct 28, 2009
4/5 90% District 9 (2009) "A highly admirable sci-fi flick that crackles with wit, invention, imagination and ingenuity. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Sep 3, 2009
4.5/5 68% Public Enemies (2009) "It's refreshing to see some grown-up mainstream filmmaking during the summer months. The film shows you can have star-driven action films that also deliver an emotional and visceral punch in the heart of blockbuster season. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Jun 26, 2009
3/5 19% Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009) "It was clearly the director's intention to paint Revenge of the Fallen on an epic canvas. It's more of the same - a lot more. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Jun 15, 2009
2/5 33% Terminator Salvation (2009) "Stylish but shallow, action-packed but without ever being exciting, Terminator Salvation is a movie that looked amazing as a trailer, but doesn't stand up as a 115 minute film. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Jun 1, 2009
3/5 38% X-Men Origins - Wolverine (2009) "Wolverine is fun, enjoyable and occasionally exciting, but 24 hours after you've left the cinema, you might remember as little about the events of the movie as Wolverine himself. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Apr 28, 2009
3.5/5 95% Star Trek (2009) "J.J. Abrams gives Kirk and Spock a new lease of life, but the plot is a mess. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Apr 17, 2009
1.5/5 14% Dragonball Evolution (2009) "A charmless, somewhat cynical attempt to cash in on one of the most beloved anime franchises of all time. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Apr 6, 2009
1/5 27% Lesbian Vampire Killers (2009) "The entire project is a crushingly lazy attempt to create a piece of titillating, exploitative horror-comedy that manages to achieve none of its aims. A mirthless, joyless experience, this is a movie with absolutely nothing going for it. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Mar 19, 2009
2/5 65% Watchmen (2009) "This movie is a shallow interpretation of Watchmen, shorn of sophistication or literary density. Worst of all, watching the film makes you wonder whether the source material was actually any good to begin with. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Feb 26, 2009
2/5 23% Push (2009) "At no point do you care if these dough-eyed buffoons live or die. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Feb 19, 2009
3.5 48% Twilight (2008) "We've never read the books, we're not a 13-year old girl, and yet we actually quite enjoyed it... " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Dec 19, 2008
2/5 16% Max Payne (2008) "A massive waste of time and a glaring missed opportunity. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Nov 14, 2008
3.5 65% Quantum of Solace (2008) "A cracking action film, but nothing more. The emotional power, intelligence and sheer stylishness of Casino Royale has been lost amidst the noisy blur of sub-Bourne action sequences. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Oct 28, 2008
1/5 6% Babylon A.D. (2008) "When your source material is as derivative and silly as this film's to begin with, you a have the perfect recipe for an all-mighty turkey. No wonder Kassovitz is hiding on the beach. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Aug 29, 2008
1.5/5 31% The X-Files: I Want to Believe (The X Files 2) (2008) "The plot managed to anger, unintentionally amuse and then finally bore us to tears during the interminable 100 minute running time. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Jul 31, 2008
5/5 94% The Dark Knight (2008) "The Dark Knight is so thrillingly-executed, primeval and exhilarating, it will forever sear itself into your consciousness. It might also be the most intelligent blockbuster movie ever made. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Jul 23, 2008
1/5 22% The Eye (2008) "It's all based on the creepy little Chinese film Gin gwai, an atmospheric spine-tingler that, we're sad to say, is considerably more frightening than this tame effort. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Jul 14, 2008
3/5 67% The Incredible Hulk (2008) "Marvel has managed to shape yet another fine piece of slick, if somewhat disposable action-entertainment. The Incredible Hulk is a less ambitious but more wholly realised and coherent vision of the character than previous versions. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Jun 11, 2008
4/5 39% Speed Racer (2008) "The directors have been outrageously successful in creating one of the most trippy, visually astonishing mainstream movies ever made, and have even thrown in some good-old-fashioned story-telling and morality into this kaleidoscopic brew for good measure. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted May 1, 2008
3/5 94% Iron Man (2008) "In place is a talented cast, an interesting director, an established lead character, and a wealth of plots from the comics ready to be mined for future storylines. Despite Iron Man's problems, it will definitely leave you wanting more. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Apr 25, 2008
4.5/5 74% Son of Rambow (2007) "You'd have to be a bigger cynic than Richard Dawkins not to have your cockles warmed by this gem. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Apr 6, 2008
2.5/5 22% Never Back Down (2008) "A cliché-ridden guilty pleasure. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Apr 4, 2008
2.5/5 66% Be Kind Rewind (2008) "The director has attempted to construct quite a complex little film here, but only parts of this delicate concoction work effectively. The movie feels like a strange, lightweight piece of ephemeral fluff. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Feb 22, 2008
5/5 91% There Will Be Blood (2007) "A towering, tour-de-force display in cinematic virtuosity; and an incredibly ambitious, deliberate stab at greatness by the director. Only time will tell if he's pulled it off. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Feb 8, 2008
4.5/5 77% Cloverfield (2008) "Feels like one big, masterfully executed experiment in upping the ante in audience manipulation, and it works brilliantly. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
Posted Feb 7, 2008
3.5/5 86% Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007) "Deserves kudos for attempting to bring a cerebral and extremely violent story, told almost entirely in song, to the multiplex masses. It's just a shame that, ironically, there's little humanity beneath Sweeney Todd's sumptuous outer pastry. " ‐ IGN Movies UK
