3/5 61% Southpaw (2015) "Floats like a bee, stings like a butterfly. The script keeps its gloves on but Gyllenhaal gives his all, notching up one of his very best performances. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 21, 2015
3/5 58% Maggie (2015) "Odd casting and lighting choices aside, there's a genuinely affecting drama at the unhappy heart of Hobson's film. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 20, 2015
4/5 88% Mr. Holmes (2015) "This is easily the best Sherlock story that Conan Doyle never wrote. A film more about retirement and regret than questions and answers, it sees McKellen gently, brilliantly expose the frailties of an immortal character. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jun 15, 2015
4/5 50% Tomorrowland (2015) "Taking the warm '60s nostalgia of The Iron Giant, the quick-fire pace and 'toon energy of The Incredibles and the elaborate yet taut action of Ghost Protocol, Bird blends everything into a thoroughly modern slice of vintage Disney. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 18, 2015
2/5 23% The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box (2014) "Michael Sheen, Lena Heady and Sam Neill are among the big names expecting a franchise, but they'll be lucky to get a mid-morning TV slot, let alone a sequel. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Nov 21, 2014
2/5 29% Love, Rosie (2015) "A soapy heartstring fiddler ... " ‐ Total Film
Posted Oct 21, 2014
3/5 44% Planes: Fire And Rescue (2014) "Somehow, this sequel to a rubbish spin-off to a rubbish sequel to a so-so cartoon is actually pretty good. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Aug 10, 2014
2/5 75% Goltzius And The Pelican Company "All a good excuse for Greenaway to indulge his strengths (painterly tableaux and theological art-history) and weaknesses (boobs and willies), and all a long way from his '80s heyday. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 10, 2014
3/5 79% The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet (2015) "With more whimsy than a Wes Anderson wedding - and a clunky third act that potholes the plot - Jeunet's American comeback is beautiful, heart-warming and a bit of a mess. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jun 9, 2014
1/5 16% Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return (2014) "A cheap and charmless reminder to leave the classics alone. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 19, 2014

Posted Apr 7, 2014
3/5 57% Short Circuit (1986) "John Badham's Pinocchio story is sweet, silly and now charmingly old-fashioned. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Apr 2, 2014
81% Flight of the Navigator (1986) "The early CG FX have aged remarkably well, while the slow build-up makes the Spielbergian space adventure all the more fantastic. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Apr 1, 2014
1/5 13% Bullet (2014) "A dull, dumb, accidentally funny lump of cop-schlock that desperately needs a Machete. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Mar 3, 2014
2/5 30% The Monuments Men (2014) "A mildly interesting, yet slightly dull take on a chapter of the war that definitely deserves better. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Feb 13, 2014
4/5 88% Terms of Endearment (1983) "Its soppy story is freed from cheap tear-jerking by Brooks' confident direction, Larry McMurtry's poignant script and a flawless ensemble. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jan 10, 2014
4/5 50% The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013) "Pretty much all the credit belongs to Stiller behind the camera, turning a sappy Hollywood button-pusher into a slick, smart-looking fantasy that doesn't mind showing its indie roots. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Dec 23, 2013
3/5 78% Saving Mr. Banks (2013) "Hanks takes to Walt like a pair of cosy slippers, but it's Thompson who adds layers to a classy but predictable slice of Disney schmaltz. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Nov 25, 2013
4/5 89% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) "Catching Fire expands Suzanne Collins' novel beyond the confines of the arena to tackle some seriously brutal truths - plugging gaps and sowing seeds for a two-part finale that will have to work hard to match its grit. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Nov 12, 2013
5/5 97% The Selfish Giant (2013) "Carried aloft by the remarkable performances of her two young leads, Clio Barnard's poignant, unflinching slice of hard-knock-life grips tight and lingers long. " ‐ Total Film

2/5 17% Harrigan "The Bill meets Byker Grove. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 15, 2013
3/5 44% The Call (2013) "Claustrophobic and low-key, the bulk of the film works brilliantly - helped in no small part by Berry's fantastically fractured performance. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 13, 2013
3/5 47% We're The Millers (2013) "It's predictable, politically incorrect and too long - but a handful of really big chuckles excuse most of the cop-outs. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Aug 28, 2013
4/5 92% Parenthood (1989) "Ambitiously probing every anxiety-ridden corner of the suburban mum-and-dad experience, some of its interconnecting story strands work better than others. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 31, 2013
3/5 67% World War Z (2013) "Choosing quantity over quality, intensity over tension and big-screen thrills over low-fi shocks - this is probably what the zombie apocalypse will actually look like. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jun 3, 2013

Posted Apr 5, 2013
3/5 7% Fire With Fire (2012) "David Barrett's daft, generic revenger barrels along nicely (often nastily) enough, but it must have missed going straight to DVD by a whisker. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Mar 7, 2013
3/5 52% Jack the Giant Slayer (2013) "If you're after a ripping, roaring, thigh-slapping giant of a fairytale, Bryan Singer's blockbuster panto will be right up your beanstalk. " ‐ Total Film

Posted Nov 19, 2012

Posted Oct 23, 2012
3/5 50% Adventures of the Penguin King 3D (2013) "It's not as epic as March Of The Penguins, or as stunning as the BBC's usual slo-mo nature porn - but with nary an animated tap dance in sight, it's still king of the 3D penguins. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 28, 2012
3/5 45% Hotel Transylvania (2012) "It bursts with ideas and the characters are warmly drawn; it's just a shame the jokes come so thin and fast. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 28, 2012
3/5 74% Cockneys vs Zombies (2013) "It might sound like a lazy idea for an iPhone game but a few fresh jokes and lashings of creative gore help it stand out from the shuffling crowd. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Aug 23, 2012
3/5 67% Offender (2012) "Ron Scalpello's brutal debut about a young offenders' institution hammers its messages home with a sock full of snooker balls. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 31, 2012
3/5 55% Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012) "The sugary third act might be as sappy as the first is dark, but there are comforts in this apoca-romcom - not least Carell's sad-eyed, soulful turn. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 3, 2012
3/5 37% Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012) "Weighed down with daft new characters and an overstretched story, the prehistoric saga is looking a bit old. On the other hand, it still has Scrat -which is all any movie really needs... " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 2, 2012
3/5 86% Electrick Children (2013) "Careful, kids - rock'n'roll can get you pregnant. Or that's what one Mormon teen believes in this cute lo-fi indie from first-timer Rebecca Thomas. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 2, 2012
3/5 29% Comes A Bright Day (2012) "Aboud summons an impressive array of talent for his debut feature, pitched as an odd mix of indie-Brit parlour farce and Dog Day Afternoon. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 2, 2012
4/5 95% Ping Pong (2013) "An unabashed crowd-pleaser, Hugh Hartford's table-top portrait avoids patronising its aged subjects, bouncing between sweetly satirical and sincerely moving. " ‐ Total Film
