Scarface (1983)

"This almost Jacobean tale of drug gangsters in 1980s Miami is rather too long for the points it makes, but is nevertheless riveting and still, after 26 years, remarkably fresh." ‐ Times (UK)

Orphan (2009)

"Lifted above the average by a pretty nifty twist and some unnecessarily good acting." ‐ Times (UK)

Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus (2009)

"How this ever got released is a mystery. Unwatchable, almost unreviewable, this stupid monster movie makes the Bela Lugosi swan song Plan 9 from Outer Space look like a masterpiece." ‐ Sunday Times (UK)

The Meerkats (2008)

"Like the real-life natural-world Disney features of yesteryear, there's a huge amount of entertainment to be had, especially for kids, although the imposition of a story and the attribution of various emotions to the creatures can get slightly cloying." ‐ Sunday Times (UK)

Beautiful Losers (2008)

"As you watch the movie wholeheartedly and uncritically celebrate the group's "nonconformist" ethos (shouldn't someone gently break it to them?), you can feel the energy being sucked out of you." ‐ Times (UK)

Martyrs (2008)

"The air of pretentiousness and the whiff of lesbian chic suggest that the bunch of nihilists who produced this garbage will claim something for it. All it really demonstrates is that there is something seriously rotten in the state of France." ‐ Times (UK)

The Life Before Her Eyes (2007)

"In the hands of the director Vadim Perelman, it becomes a jumble of dramatic scenes and disorientating flashbacks that merge into a confusing, stream-of-consciousness narrative, and the twist, when it comes, is a complete cheat." ‐ Sunday Times (UK)

A Summer In Genoa (2009)

"Winterbottom employs a naturalistic style that, in its self-conscious flatness, becomes an affectation, and the complete, wanton lack of any kind of drama is frustrating." ‐ Times (UK)

Hotel for Dogs (2009)

"The dogs are never quite as entertaining as they should be for the kids in the audience, and the hypercutesiness and speechifying at the end will lead to much tightening of adult sphincters." ‐ Times (UK)

Friday the 13th (2009)

"This "reimagining", by the director Marcus Nispel, of the 1980 slasher movie is one hell of a bore." ‐ Times (UK)

Pink Panther 2 (2009)

"It's been a long time (the 1980s, maybe?) since either Cleese or Martin was actually funny, but the director, Harald Zwart, compounds this by displaying zero sense of comedy, employing laboured visual gags and routines with no punch lines." ‐ Sunday Times (UK)
