16% Eragon (2006) Kids too young for Lord Of The Rings may be distracted by this below average fantasy, but for everyone else this is derivative and silly.‐ Film4

2/5 23% The Secret of Moonacre (2008) It's not quite a disaster but this disappointing and poorly executed fantasy adventure never reaches the level of magic and enchantment it needs to succeed.‐ Film4

4.5/5 83% The Good, the Bad, the Weird (Joheun-nom, Nabbeun-nom, Isanghan-nom) (2010) Wild, crazy and packed with memorable moments, this South Korean homage to the western may not be thought-provoking or particularly deep, but it's also one of the most genuinely fun and inventive movies to hit the screen in quite some time.‐ Film4

2.5/5 29% Underworld: The Rise of the Lycans (2009) It may be a definite upswing in quality for the series, but if you thought the previous two films were overblown goth-horror nonsense, Rise Of The Lycans really isn't going to change your mind...‐ SFX Magazine

4/5 75% Hansel & Gretel (2007) Making up for a selection of recent Asian Horror disappointments, this lush, surreal and brilliantly dark fairy tale is an entertaining and deliciously unsettling experience.‐ Film4

2/5 44% Blindness (2008) Veering between intelligent and unpleasant, this apocalyptic drama isn't without its strong moments, but is ultimately too grim and pretentious for its own good.‐ Film4

3.5/5 61% The Fall (2006) A must-watch for lovers of the strange and unusual, this visually ravishing oddball drama has sequences of genuine beauty and charm - even if it won't be to everyone's taste.‐ Film4

2.5/5 74% Flushed Away (2006) It's an interesting approach to bridging two very different disciplines -- it's just a pity they didn't find a better script to try it out on.‐ Film4

2/5 22% Daylight Robbery (2008) A promising idea is let down by weak storytelling in this well-played but lacklustre Brit crime thriller.‐ Film4

2/5 50% Angel (2007) Despite an impressive cast and a well-known director, this misfiring costume drama is a haphazard mess that ends up more unintentionally funny than emotionally engaging.‐ Film4

3.5/5 74% Elegy (2008) Adult and provocative, Elegy doesn't entirely pull off its complex philosophical juggling act, but it's an interesting and atmospheric piece of cinema, aided by some truly excellent performances.‐ Film4

3.5/5 74% Jet Li's Fearless (Huo Yuan Jia) (Legend of a Fighter) (2006) Every action sequence is imaginatively mounted, from a dizzying fight on a high tower, to the sight of Li taking on a wrestler twice his size...‐ Film4

96% WALL-E (2008) Another in the long line of Pixar classics -- beautiful, energetic, intelligent, satirical, crammed full of gorgeous design, and genuinely heartwarming.‐ Film4

1/4 9% Bratz: The Movie (2007) Sadly, the fact that it's attached to a successful toyline means it barely matters whether it's good or not.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted May 20, 2008
34% TMNT (2007) It won't convert the unfaithful but this messy, energetic action adventure is lurid fun, and may well re-ignite the popularity of the heroes in a half-shell.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted May 18, 2008
1.5/5 14% Underdog (2007) While this idea may have been enough to happily fill 25 minutes, the film version fails to effectively stretch it out to feature-length.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted May 18, 2008
9% Aeon Flux (2005) stodgy and listless futuristic thriller that only ever echoes other cinematic sci-fi tomorrows.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted May 18, 2008
2/5 36% Ye yan (Legend of the Black Scorpion) (The Banquet) (2006) A production that's both amazing to look at and hard to enjoy, The Banquet contains plenty of visual pleasures, but ties its gloomy story in too many knots to be truly entertaining.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2008
2/5 26% Drillbit Taylor (2008) It's not quite a disaster but this disappointing Apatow-produced teen comedy still gets a 'Could Do Much Better' on its report card.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Mar 28, 2008
2/5 81% Le Voyage du Ballon Rouge (The Flight of the Red Balloon) (2007) An odd tale of life on the winding streets of Paris, The Flight Of The Red Balloon isn't without its moments of beauty, but its vague story and aimless tone is more likely to frustrate than enchant.‐ Film4

4/5 78% Water Lilies (2008) A universe away from everyday American teen movies, this engaging and empathetic portrait of teenage life is packed full of stylish moments.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2008
2/5 52% Margot at the Wedding (2007) With superb acting and great dialogue, this acerbic comic drama has some excellent moments, but it too often feels like being on an enforced holiday with people you'd rather not spend any time with.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Feb 29, 2008
85% Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang (2005) A raucous mix of black comedy and noir thriller.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Feb 27, 2008
4/5 66% The Kite Runner (2007) Showcasing a welcome lack of big-budget attitude, The Kite Runner makes up for its small flaws with an engaging, thought-provoking story and a willingness to tackle some very dark issues.‐ Film4

2.5/5 27% Alvin and the Chipmunks (2007) If the idea of three squeaky-voiced squirrels as pop gods makes you shudder, Alvin And The Chipmunks won't make you change your mind - but there's enough spritely mischief in this flawed family comedy to provide some light-hearted fun.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2007
2.5/5 50% Bee Movie (2007) Bright, sunny and almost instantly forgettable, even Jerry Seinfeld can't stop Bee Movie from boldly going where far too many CGI animations have gone before.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2007
3.5/5 93% Enchanted (2007) It's not quite as enchanted or magical as it could have been, but this family romp still manages to be good fun, and is lifted by fantastic turns from Amy Adams and James Marsden.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2007
1.5/5 38% Southland Tales (2007) A hypnotic disaster that's truly fascinating - if only for all the wrong reasons.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2007
4/5 95% The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) This hugely entertaining horror fable for all the family might suffer from pacing problems, but it's also a true original that still stands out from today's CGI-heavy crowd.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2007
2.5/5 67% Wristcutters: A Love Story (2007) Veering from witty to occasionally trite, Wristcutters: A Love Story has plenty of originality on its side, but never manages to be more than the sum of its self-consciously quirky parts.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Nov 23, 2007
4/5 85% Air Guitar Nation (2006) A gloriously insane journey into the weirder reaches of rock, Air Guitar Nation is a funny, funky and oddly moving burst of lively factual entertainment.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2007
3/5 51% The Kingdom (2007) As a pure thriller, it's entertaining - but The Kingdom tries too hard to be a crowd-pleaser, and ends up standing in the shadows of better and more provocative movies.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2007
3/5 63% Day Watch (2007) A must-see for fans of the original, but a shorter running time and less energetic CGI excess might have done this flawed horror fantasy a serious favour.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2007
4/5 90% Michael Clayton (2007) A dark, engaging drama that asks some difficult moral questions, Michael Clayton is a classy piece of filmmaking with yet another in a long line of fine performances from George Clooney.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2007
4/5 87% Superbad (2007) It's not for the easily offended, but look past the fabulously crude dialogue, and Superbad is one of the most consistently funny and enjoyable teen comedies in years.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2007
3.5/5 84% Breach (2007) An effective and meticulous character drama, Breach doesn't quite make the most of its story but still tells a fascinating tale, aided by Chris Cooper's magnetic central performance.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2007
1.5/5 7% License to Wed (2007) License To Wed never escapes the combined trap of terminal blandness and a severe lack of decent jokes.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2007
4/5 58% Shutter (2004) Don't let the over-familiar nature of the plot fool you. This Asian horror thriller rises above its flaws to deliver a tightly constructed, affecting, and downright terrifying ride.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2007
3/5 50% The Flying Scotsman (2006) An engaging mix of sports movie and psychological drama that rises above the routine enough times to excuse some of its more predictable moments.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2007
3/5 85% Bridge to Terabithia (2007) An engaging portrait of childhood, this well-meaning family film rises above its flaws, and delivers a surprisingly hefty emotional punch.‐ Film4

2/5 22% Typhoon (2006) Large chunks have been lost in translation.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2007
4/5 60% 300 (2007) The result is a delirious, turbo-charged roar of a movie that plays like Spartacus on bizarre drugs.‐

2/5 53% Sheitan (2007) Has plenty of atmosphere but can't make up for unpleasant characters and a meandering story.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2007
2/5 8% The Number 23 (2007) Carrey is effectively sinister, the visuals are often amazing, but there's less to this murky psycho-thriller than meets the eye.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2007
4/5 42% Lives of the Saints (2004) Bizarre, involving and highly original, this leftfield gangland fable adds up to a strange, surprisingly moving experience.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2007
4/5 76% Game Over: Kasparov and the Machine (2004) A film which builds into a gripping blend of When We Were Kings and 2001: A Space Odyssey.‐

0% Merci Docteur Rey (2002) A horribly mannered, self-conscious film that gets more tiresome as it goes along.‐ Film4
