The Nice Guys (2016)

"It's all hugely enjoyable, packing punches and more laughs than most straightforward comedies, and a successful return to the neo-noir well after Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang." Sky Movies

The Witch (2016)

"Perfectly riding a knife edge of ambiguity, what is religious hysteria and what could be real is a guessing game sustained until the memorable climax." Sky Movies

Triple 9 (2016)

Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)

"From the carnage of a troubled shoot emerged Brosnan's best Bond, striking the correct balance of menace, thrills and humour, using a chase-movie template to ensure attention never wavers." Sky Movies

"For this movie 007's license to thrill had definitely been revoked." Sky Movies

Octopussy (1983)

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014)

Rigor Mortis (2014)

The Duke Of Burgundy (2015)

Venus in Fur (2014)

"Too rarified to break out the arthouse circuit and missing the star wattage of Carnage or The Ghost, this is nonetheless essential viewing for Polanski fans." Sky Movies

The Raid 2 (2014)

"With preternatural understanding of how to stage action, Evans knows when to get stately and stand back and when to get loose and handheld amidst the flurry of kicks and punches." Sky Movies

Divergent (2014)

Filth (2014)

"Despite the bile and misanthropy, Baird and McAvoy pull off the impossible by humanising this human cesspit, through effective flashbacks and suggestions of past trauma that have produced Bruce in all his appalling glory." Sky Movies
