Rules Don't Apply (2016)

"Sometimes overstuffed and sometimes underdeveloped, it is a curio that means it never becomes a must see movie and instead sits comfortably in the watchable zone." ‐IGN Movies

"Revenge hasn't been this sweet in a long time." ‐IGN Movies

Trolls (2016)

Sully (2016)

Mechanic: Resurrection (2016)

"Underserved in almost every single way, from script to direction and everything in between, Jason Statham deserves better than Mechanic: Resurrection." ‐IGN Movies

Star Trek Beyond (2016)

"If you wrote a list of what you wanted from a Star Trek film, from action and humor to strong characters (both male and female) and a solid storyline, this delivers and it deserves your dollars." ‐Forbes

The Shallows (2016)

The Nice Guys (2016)

"Crowe and Gosling nail it and make this one of the year's most air-punchingly enjoyable movies." ‐IGN Movies

The Boss (2016)

"If you're not already a Melissa McCarthy fan, The Boss probably won't change your mind but there are some hard laughs to be had and people who love her work will lap it up." ‐IGN Movies

A Perfect Getaway (2009)

"It's not a classic and doesn't have all the tension it maybe should have. It's basically distracting Hollywood thriller fluff that is enjoyable enough in the right mood." Heart 106.2

The Time Traveler's Wife (2009)

"It's quite bland and could do with a bit more fire in its belly. More than adequate but nothing really special." Heart 106.2

Orphan (2009)

"Okay, so I saw the ending coming a mile off (and no, I'm not going to spoil it for everyone by telling you what happens) but that didn't stop me actually enjoying this guilty pleasure." Heart 106.2

The Ugly Truth (2009)

"If this film was a pizza it would be a Margherita - it fills a hole but could do with a few more ingredients." Heart 106.2

G-Force (2009)

"This is actually great (if ultimately silly and slightly cheesy) fun with quite a few nice sly digs at the genre that is trying to snuggle up to." Heart 106.2

The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 (2009)

The Proposal (2009)

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)

"An impressive film that stands out as the jewel in the Potter crown." Heart 106.2

Bruno (2009)

"That's not to say that there aren't funny moments here because there are some really choice moments but they are lost in the mix of purile and often uncomfortable moments that really are below what you'd expect from the team behind this." Heart 106.2

Public Enemies (2009)

"Whilst there is a lot of gun action and violent set pieces in this, it's really a piece that is really all about the characters and it hands down the best gangster movie of the last decade... at least. One of this year's few must see movies." Heart 106.2

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009)

"Despite its few faults, this is this summer's biggest ticket and ties with Star Trek for the best summer blockbuster of 2009." Heart 106.2

The Last House on the Left (2009)

"This is not a horror, it's a thriller and as a thriller it's moderately effective but as it a film it won't leave you feeling entertained or thrilled, just a bit uncomfortable." Heart 106.2

The Hangover (2009)

"With a great soundtrack and script so sharp you might need to take plasters into the cinemas with you because you might come out with cuts... this is this summer's must see comedy." Heart 106.2

Last Chance Harvey (2009)

"Last Chance Harvey is an absolute gem of a movie and the perfect antidote to all the big budget vehicles that are on release right now. Magical." Heart 106.2

Terminator Salvation (2009)

Drag Me to Hell (2009)

Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian (2009)

Angels & Demons (2009)

"This isn't a bad film at all, but it could be better... and I am very aware that regardless of what I think it will be huge." Heart 106.2

Coraline (2009)

"Off-beat, weird, original, intense, stunning, jaw-dropping, enthralling and ingenious, this film is a beautiful piece of work that will hold your attention and capture your heart." Heart 106.2

Star Trek (2009)

"This is everything a summer blockbuster should be. Star Trek is a film that will delight fans and impress people who have usually steered clear of the franchise." Heart 106.2

Is Anybody There? (2009)

X-Men Origins - Wolverine (2009)

"The action is fast and furious, the script is impressive for this type of movie and the visual effects (apart from the odd occasion) are phenomenal. This is a not to be missed blockbuster that will impress as much as it will entertain." Heart 106.2

State of Play (2009)

I Love You, Man (2009)

"This is a brilliant date movie that you'll be able to relate to on some level - take your best friends too! Make it a double date movie." Heart 106.2

Race to Witch Mountain (2009)

Fast & Furious (2009)

"This is not rocket science, it won't tax your brain, it won't win any Oscars but it will have you on the edge of your seat and give you a great two hours of adrenaline pumping entertainment." Heart 106.2

17 Again (2009)

Monsters vs. Aliens (2009)

"This is probably THE family film of the year so far and it's one that has enough grown up (and by that I don't mean rude) gags to ensure that adults enjoy this too. The script is razor sharp and the voice cast is spot one." Heart 106.2

Pirate Radio (The Boat That Rocked) (2009)

"The Boat That Rocked is about 40 minutes too long, relies on too many obvious and repetitive gags and tends to sag and loose pace too often for a Richard Curtis film. The good news is that this is no where near as drab or unentertaining as Wimbledon." Heart 106.2

The Damned United (2009)

"Brilliant and possibly the best British film of the last 5 years." Heart 106.2

Knowing (2009)

"What starts out as a tense and interesting movie slowly becomes an end of the world sci-fi mess that is too long and not exciting enough." Heart 106.2

The Unborn (2009)

"After a few initial decent scares, the corny dialogue, poor casting and cringe-worthy acting drag this movie into it's own hell. Utter rubbish." Heart 106.2

The Young Victoria (2009)

Watchmen (2009)

"This is a landmark film for the genre that will impress, amaze and grip but it is not light entertainment." Heart 106.2

The International (2009)

"The pacing could be a bit faster and the script could be a little less obvious but this is overall well worth a look." ‐Daily Express (UK)
