Posted May 4, 2014

Posted Apr 27, 2014
2/5 24% The Other Woman (2014) "There's ... something rather sad about Diaz and Mann nattering on about blokes as if they are just out of high school. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Apr 21, 2014

Posted Apr 21, 2014
3/5 54% Pioneer (2014) "The plotting is so tortuous that following who has done what may give you the bends. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Apr 21, 2014
2/5 81% Tracks (2014) "With nothing at stake, John Curran's earnestly dull biopic hasn't much to offer except parched voiceovers, painfully slow child/parent flashbacks, sunburn and humps. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Apr 21, 2014
2/5 36% The Quiet Ones (2014) "Supposedly based on true events, it's hard to believe that any place in 1974 played Slade's music as frequently and ruthlessly as this film does. " ‐ Scotsman

Posted Apr 14, 2014
3/5 91% Locke (2014) "Hardy gives a fine, naturalistic performance, but the journey isn't much more than a radio play with flashing indicators. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Apr 14, 2014
2/5 27% The Love Punch (2014) "Brosnan and Thompson seem hell-bent on a good time, but Joel Hopkins' broad, lazy script is no sparkler. " ‐ Scotsman

Posted Apr 14, 2014
3/5 52% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) "Garfield remains a raw and lively alternative to the era of a sleepy Tobey Maguire. But is his baggy, disjointed, action-stuffed movie amazing? Not quite. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Apr 14, 2014
2/5 79% The Raid 2 (2014) "The movie is compulsively too much, throwing everything it can think of at you, in case it fails to entertain. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Apr 7, 2014

Posted Apr 7, 2014
3/5 94% A Story Of Children And Film "Idiosyncratic essay about children in movies from all over the world; the commentary is a bit precious but the clips are intriguing. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Apr 7, 2014

Posted Apr 7, 2014

Posted Apr 7, 2014
4/5 79% The Borderlands (2014) "Much of this may sound familiar, but The Borderlands' crafty virtue is that it understands that hand-held camerawork and boo scares aren't an excuse to neglect plot, dialogue or characters. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Apr 7, 2014
3/5 76% Noah (2014) "Noah manages the miracle of Crowe shouting at the heavens without looking absurd, not to mention the miracle of bringing the Bible movie back to life, and making it watchable and contemplative. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Apr 7, 2014
3/5 51% Half of a Yellow Sun (2014) "Half Of A Yellow Sun deserves recognition for its ambition, tenacity and intentions, even it's not quite a full throttle experience. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Apr 7, 2014
4/5 99% Starred Up (2014) "The film's exploration of the legacy of violence is measured out in brief bursts that are always terrible and unsettling, but never feel indulgent or excessive. " ‐ Scotsman

Posted Mar 10, 2014
2/5 43% 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) "Despite hyperbolic acting, this is a dull-witted combination of ancient Greece and modern CGI - and the 3D element means that everyone bleeds as if entirely made of arteries. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Mar 10, 2014
3/5 81% The Bachelor Weekend (The Stag) (2014) "Not as crass as other bachelor party flicks, in that we have to wait almost an hour for the leads to get humiliatingly naked. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Mar 10, 2014
3/5 51% The Zero Theorem (2014) "Time enough for all of us to move on - but not, alas, Gilliam, whose personal projects often seem to fiddle obsessively with the same themes as his most successful movie. " ‐ Scotsman

Posted Feb 16, 2014
3/5 93% Stranger by the Lake (2014) "Notable already for its depiction of real sex, it's explicit in other ways too: a depiction of amoral attraction that deserves a wider audience than mere fans of elegant congress. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Feb 16, 2014
1/5 13% Winter's Tale (2014) "Goldsman's directorial debut is decorated by an A-list cast (watch out for Will Smith, if you must), one can only assume that he has their families held hostage somewhere, because even by Colin Farrell standards, Goldsman's tale is a mawkish stinker. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Feb 16, 2014
2/5 49% Stalingrad (2014) "The 3D effects of explosions and plane crashes are plentiful and impressive; the one-dimensional storytelling and stiff subtitles, rather less so. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Feb 16, 2014

Posted Feb 16, 2014
3/5 95% Her (2013) "A beautifully shot provocation that is more interesting as a conversation on the way home than as an experience in the cinema. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Feb 10, 2014
3/5 99% The Missing Picture (2014) "It is ingenious, poignant and resonant, if lacking in narrative momentum. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Feb 10, 2014
3/5 80% Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014) "Few will recall their time-travelling adventures from the 50s and 60s, but the update is surprisingly bright, sweet and suitable for its target audience. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Feb 10, 2014
2/5 51% Cuban Fury (2014) "Frost and the cast have obviously trained hard to avoid being murder on the dance floor, but the inept script is like Strictly Come Dancing in concrete boots. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Feb 10, 2014
3/5 49% RoboCop (2014) "Jose Padilha's update employs many of the same moves, but not the original's sly, subversive humour. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Feb 10, 2014
4/5 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) "The whole thing is a Danish interlocking brick system fever dream - and a kick in the pants, if not the groin, to filmmakers who dare follow it. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Feb 10, 2014
3/5 75% Teenage (2014) "Tackling a huge sociological subject in less than 90 minutes, Teenage is adolescence personified: a bit superficial and spotty. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Feb 3, 2014
4/5 94% Dallas Buyers Club (2013) "Inevitably, there's a familiar redemptive arc to Dallas Buyers Club, but the crossover to altruism is so sneakily done here that it is irresistible. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Feb 3, 2014

Posted Feb 3, 2014
3/5 76% The Invisible Woman (2013) "The script is tepid, and Fiennes' direction so restrained that even a train crash feels flatly sluggish. And, in the end, the invisible woman reveals too little. " ‐ Scotsman
Posted Feb 3, 2014
3/5 83% The Armstrong Lie (2013) "Berg is doubtless sincere about paying tribute to Luttrell and his comrades - you just wish his salute wasn't so jingoistic and clichéd. " ‐ Scotsman
