1/5 7% Nine Lives (2016) "Nothing here looks like a genuine interaction between real human beings: Spacey may be the first actor to give a comedic performance in which his own smile looks like it had to be green-screened in at a later date. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Aug 18, 2016
4/5 76% The Shallows (2016) "Collet-Serra's rigorous craftsmanship and Lively's muscular-in-every-sense movie-star performance ... ensure every attack and counterattack convulses and grips. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Aug 11, 2016
4/5 69% David Brent: Life on the Road "Even after all these years, the character still fits Gervais as comfortably as a Sergio Georgini sports jacket. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Aug 11, 2016
2/5 71% The Carer "János Edelényi's The Carer brings nothing to the party apart from the kind of clenched, eyelid-twitching grin of enforced affability that quickly loses any charm it ever had. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Aug 7, 2016
4/5 100% Bobby Sands: 66 Days "Byrne's film is concerned with the process and practice of myth-making: the way the right person, or action, or face, can capture a moment, or galvanise a movement - and, for both good and ill, transform politics into something like art. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Aug 7, 2016
4/5 87% Pete's Dragon (2016) "The film is confident enough in its own weatherbeaten skin to take on no more plot than is strictly necessary, and its most affecting scenes are all character-driven moments with no real bearing on the story. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Aug 2, 2016
2/5 26% Suicide Squad (2016) "Occasionally, the film feels like Ayer is trying to fight his way out from underneath an enormous, suffocating parachute. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Aug 2, 2016
4/5 95% Author: The JT LeRoy Story (2016) "Feuerzeig's film teasingly, dextrously reminds us that all art - especially the true stuff - is fake. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Jul 28, 2016
4/5 95% Swallows and Amazons "Despite the plot adjustments, Swallows and Amazons reproduces the potted world Ransome wrote about with diligence and sincerity: it's very English, very interwar, and very, very white. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Jul 24, 2016
3/5 88% Born To Be Blue (2016) "The occasional lows only serve to illustrate what a minefield the genius biopic can be - and how Born to be Blue skips through the genre more nimbly than most. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Jul 24, 2016
4/5 73% Ghostbusters (2016) "The 2016 vintage of Ghostbusters speaks to its time with the same withering comic accuracy and hot-air-balloon-sized sense of fun as the 1984 original. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Jul 10, 2016
4/5 86% Maggie's Plan (2016) "This comedy from Rebecca Miller says more about the human condition through its cardigans than most films this summer have managed in their scripts. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Jul 7, 2016
3/5 62% Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (2016) "While you can't imagine the film ever making it to Cannes under anything other than its own steam, the jaunt proves to be a surprisingly worthwhile one. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Jun 30, 2016
2/5 76% Elvis & Nixon (2016) "Perhaps this meeting of suspicious minds really was an unsung crux of modern American history, but Elvis & Nixon feels like a trifle about a trifle. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Jun 23, 2016
3/5 74% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) "It's an amiable time-passer, and hopefully a promise of even better things to come. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

Posted Jun 21, 2016
2/5 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) "Wan's film runs for an absurdly overextended two and a quarter hours, and an entire hour and five minutes have passed before the Warrens actually set foot on English soil. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Jun 16, 2016
4/5 94% Finding Dory (2016) "Navigates tricky emotional territory with a perceptiveness and tact that isn't just great storytelling, but could be a real comfort to parents and children alike who unexpectedly see themselves in Dory's plight. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Jun 15, 2016
2/5 65% Learning To Drive (2015) "The gas remains largely unstepped on, the brake cables tragically uncut. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

Posted Jun 9, 2016

Posted May 19, 2016
4/5 100% After the Storm (Umi yori mo mada fukaku) "Even long-standing fans of the Japanese filmmaker might be taken aback by the supreme subtlety of his latest, achingly beautiful ode to the quiet complexities of family life. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 19, 2016
5/5 94% Aquarius "The film's lucid sense of place and space, helped along by the camera's eye for sensual visual detail and sound design to make your eardrums groan in delight, is one of the film's most generous pleasures. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 18, 2016
4/5 100% The Red Turtle (La tortue rouge) (2017) "Though there isn't a single word of dialogue in the film's 80-minute running time, the big questions it asks, about ambition, acceptance and the beauty of companionship, ring loud in every heart-melting frame. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 18, 2016

Posted May 17, 2016
4/5 91% Loving (2016) "The film's determination not to overcook any single scene means the tears it eventually draws feel honestly come by - and the wind-rustled beauty of Adam Stone's cinematography make us realise this world shouldn't be simply written off as a bad job. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 17, 2016
5/5 91% The Nice Guys (2016) "The BFG feels very much like Spielberg's Powell and Pressburger film - it's a picture that could have only been made now, but feels rooted in the past. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 15, 2016
5/5 75% The BFG (2016) "While the note-perfect script, written by the late Melissa Matheson (who also scripted E.T.), treats Dahl's words with radiant respect, it also subtly reworks them to make the story cinematic to its soul. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 15, 2016

Posted May 15, 2016
5/5 87% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) "The look of the film - hair, costumes, even sunlight - is exactly right. The sound of it is even better. Music constantly plays from ubiquitous car stereos and turntables, and every scene has its own groove. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 12, 2016
4/5 70% Café Society (2016) "Café Society isn't Vonnie's story, but it's Stewart's film. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 12, 2016
3/5 57% Money Monster (2016) "There's lots of glossy fun to be had. Clooney attacks the role of a journalist who rediscovers his conscience in real time with sticky-fingered glee, while Roberts is beguilingly composed as... his conscience, superego and puppeteer. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 12, 2016
2/5 21% I Saw the Light (2016) "The genre's most egregious clichés aren't just put to work, but paraded around like prize sheep. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 5, 2016

Posted Apr 28, 2016
4/5 73% Miles Ahead (2016) "This is a tumultuous and messy film that leaves you craving all the Miles Davis it doesn't give you, and I wouldn't have wanted it to be any other way. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Apr 21, 2016
2/5 72% Louder Than Bombs (2016) "The film leaves you crying out for more bombs, more noise - and more Huppert. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Apr 21, 2016
5/5 90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) "This is the cinematic superhero showdown you've dreamt of since childhood, precisely because that's everything - and all - it wants to be. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Apr 20, 2016
87% Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) "A delicious, finger-tingling comedy about the creative instinct that makes your heart want to squawk with joy. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Apr 14, 2016
1/5 47% Hardcore Henry (2016) "A mostly dreadful piece of would-be #viral #content disguised as an action film. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Apr 9, 2016
3/5 17% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) "A welcome surprise: sharper and funnier than its doom-laden predecessor, with a fantasy setting immersive enough to distract from the narrative's various chips and cracks. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Apr 7, 2016
4/5 95% The Jungle Book (2016) "The film could have easily passed muster as a dry technical showcase, but Favreau gives it real analogue earth-under-the-fingernails charm. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Apr 4, 2016
4/5 88% Francofonia (2016) "The mood's often as fun as it is funereal, and though the film occasionally feels clever in a way that isn't necessarily a compliment, Sokurov's ideas have a philosophical depth and richness that are found almost nowhere else in cinema. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Mar 30, 2016
80% Eddie The Eagle (2016) "Fletcher has a brilliantly attuned sixth sense for what his audience wants to see at any given millisecond, and Eddie's final flight, from the 90-foot ramp at Calgary, is a mini-masterpiece of intuitive cutting. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Mar 24, 2016
4/5 98% Zootopia (2016) "One of the film's great strengths is the trust it puts in its young audience to decode its complex, nuanced message about the value of difference. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Mar 24, 2016
2/5 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) "No major blockbuster in years has been this incoherently structured, this seemingly uninterested in telling a story with clarity and purpose. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Mar 22, 2016
5/5 91% The Witch (2016) "One of the scariest horror movies in years - and not the creep-up-and-prod-you kind of scary either, but a profound, unsettling dread that gnaws at your bones, and which comes back to find you in the dark. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
