Hell or High Water (2016)

"Every scene bristles with comedy and suspense, and the atmosphere is further enhanced by a moody score and wonderfully evocative songs by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis." ‐

Anthropoid (2016)

"[Director Sean Ellis] has a sharp attention to detail, so the film is bracingly realistic, carrying a strong emotional kick in the final act." ‐

Born To Be Blue (2016)

"Writer-director Robert Budreau takes a stylised approach to this biopic of the legendary jazz artist Chet Baker, combining the achingly soulful music with an equally resonant performance from Ethan Hawke." ‐

The Carer (2015)

"This is Cox's show, and he dives fully into the role of a cantankerous, hammy old thespian who isn't remotely ready to go gentle into that good night." ‐

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016)

"The longer the film goes on, the more the audience will wonder why they don't feel in on the joke." ‐

Nerve (2016)

The Commune (Kollektivet) (2015)

"The layers of resonance keep it involving even when it drifts into melodrama from time to time." ‐

Finding Dory (2016)

"Because it centres on a personal quest, it's a very different style of movie, which makes some of the action feel rather contrived. But the characters are still vivid and likeable, and it's packed with meaningful themes." ‐

The BFG (2016)

"Hugely involving, with a terrific cast and of course a delightful story with a wry sense of humour." ‐

Ice Age: Collision Course (2016)

"As before, it's the zippy writing, lively vocal work and colourful animation that hold the interest." ‐

Star Trek Beyond (2016)

"This is where the Star Trek franchise officially shifts from thoughtful drama into thunderous action." ‐

Ghostbusters (2016)

"The screenplay is smart and funny, and the cast is flat-out hilarious." ‐

Keanu (2016)

"Even if this movie is basically just engaging nonsense with a lot of heart, its darker edges tell another story." ‐

The Legend of Tarzan (2016)

"Along with a first-rate cast, this movie has a surprisingly beefy script that hints at a much more high-brow adventure epic." ‐

Now You See Me 2 (2016)

"The actors bounce off each other with plenty of energy." ‐

Maggie's Plan (2016)

"Moore packs the performance with so much insight that Georgette becomes the real star of the story, the centre of the triangle with Maggie and John revolving around her." ‐

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (2016)

"If the movie feels at times like it's drifting to a halt, or if there seems to be a long wait for a laugh-inducing gag, at least the characters still have some bite." ‐

Central Intelligence (2016)

"They make a great couple, as Dwayne Johnson's bulk cleverly contrasts with Hart's tightly wound intensity." ‐

Colonia (2016)

"This is an involving, important depiction of a grim, underreported period in Chile's history." ‐

Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)

"The result is a big, fast sci-fi action thriller that lacks both the original movie's enjoyably raucous tone and its break-out star Will Smith." ‐

Elvis & Nixon (2016)

The Secret Life of Pets (2016)

"While the kids laugh at the general mayhem, there are plenty of references that will keep adults chuckling." ‐

The First Film (2016)

"A personal 30-year quest by filmmaker Wilkinson to get to the bottom of an astonishing omission from film history, this documentary plays out like an urgent mystery." Shadows on the Wall

The 9th Life of Louis Drax (2016)

"While the film is rather mannered, it's also sleek and visually engulfing." ‐

Gods Of Egypt (2016)

"With a massive scale and a digital cast of thousands, this ancient Egyptian romp tries to be both a new version of those 1950s Biblical toga epics and a generous dose of camp silliness." ‐

The Conjuring 2 (2016)

"Continuing on from the 2013 hit, this sequel blends fact and fiction to follow real-life ghostbusters Ed and Lorraine Warren from the 1976 Amityville haunting to an encounter with the Enfield poltergeist in 1977 London." ‐

Ma ma (2016)

"From Spain, this drama grapples with some enormous issues without getting too heavy about them. It's emotionally wrenching without ever feeling sentimental." ‐

When Marnie Was There (2015)

"Japan's Studio Gibli has been responsible for some of the finest animated movies in recent decades, from 2003's Oscar-winning Spirited Away to last year's beautiful The Tale of the Princess Kaguya." ‐

The Boss (2016)

The Stanford Prison Experiment (2015)

"Based on real events, this sharply well-made film shifts from a rather light-hearted comedy into a horrific thriller. And it feels unnervingly natural as it does so." ‐

Warcraft (2016)

"It looks terrific, and is directed with plenty of energy and personality. But it feels both overcrowded and superficial." ‐

Me Before You (2016)

"With a story that links together every cliche from the weepy chick-flick library, this movie uses its doomed romance premise to reduce every woman in the audience into floods of tears. " ‐

The Nice Guys (2016)

"Writer-director Shane Black returns to the comedy-noir vibe of his 2005 hit Kiss Kiss Bang Bang with this riotously funny thriller set in late-1970s Los Angeles." ‐

Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016)

"This much more light-hearted sequel reinvigorates the franchise after Disney's quirky but murky 2010 reboot of Lewis Carroll's classic, which sent the heroine into Underland for a dark adventure that spiralled into a Lord of the Rings-scale battle. " ‐

Love & Friendship (2016)

"Acclaimed filmmaker Whit Stillman reunites the stars of his 1998 drama The Last Days of Disco, Kate Beckinsale and Chloe Sevigny, for what might be the most entertaining big-screen Jane Austen adaptation ever." ‐

Money Monster (2016)

"A sleekly made thriller with a sparky sense of humour, this is also a rare action movie that has something important to say." ‐

Sing Street (2016)

"A buoyant celebration of the power of music, this is the third blissfully entertaining musical romance from John Carney, who also wrote and directed Once and Begin Again." ‐

X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)

"This closing chapter of the First Class trilogy falls into the same trap as The Last Stand, the final part in the original X-Men trilogy: it shifts the focus from character detail and social commentary into a more standard effects-heavy action brawl." ‐

Our Kind of Traitor (2016)

"It's so sleek and involving that it's easy to ignore the nagging plot holes. We're too busy imagining what we might do in the same situations." ‐

Everybody Wants Some!! (2016)

"Richard Linklater loosely follows on from two of his most acclaimed films with this lively university comedy set in 1980. It's billed as a "spiritual sequel" to his high school classic Dazed and Confused, which was set in the late 1970s." ‐

I Saw the Light (2016)

"Writer-director Marc Abraham gets ambitious with this biopic about iconic country music star Hank Williams, but the film is far too choppy to provide much insight. " ‐

Florence Foster Jenkins (2016)

"Although this comedy-drama seems to have been written specifically to give Meryl Streep a chance to dress up and put on a silly show, it's actually all true. " ‐

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016)

"While it's amusing and sometimes very funny, there's an air of desperation about this sequel to the 2014 breakout hit comedy. " ‐

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

"After the formulaic thrills of The Winter Soldier and Age of Ultron, Marvel's Avengers were in danger of getting stuck in a rut, but a smart script for this surprisingly focussed thriller kicks everything into a new direction." ‐

Son of Saul (2015)

"It's difficult to imagine a new way of approaching that topic, but writer-director Laszlo Nemes has come up with something that's staggeringly powerful in its simplicity, as he closely follows a tenacious man over two days at Auschwitz in 1944." ‐

Demolition (2016)

"With its darkly emotive themes and brittle humour, this well-made drama by Jean-marc Vallee (Dallas Buyers Club) isn't quite what it appears to be." ‐

The Take (Bastille Day) (2016)

"An attempt to muscle in on Luc Besson's Taken-style of thriller, this is an odd mix of French setting, American characters and British cast and crew." ‐

Jane Got a Gun (2016)

"With its grindingly low-key tension and unusual perspectives, this Western has a chance to revamp the genre in intriguing ways." ‐
