Dad's Army (2016)

"Quaint in era of quick-fire, on-message political humour, McColl recognises the strengths and virtues of the original series to deliver a cinematic experience akin to a buttered scone and a nice cup of tea." ‐ Sky Movies

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016)

"After sitting through this slickly violent clarion call for American political hawks to turn on the doves you might have thought that screenwriter Chuck Hogan was the right-wing spawn of Chuck Norris and Hulk Hogan." ‐ Sky Movies

Ride Along 2 (2016)

"This is one ride that never goes anywhere you don't expect it to with Ice Cube again under the impression that sullen means charismatic with Hart's frantic gurning and pratfalling bound to repel as many potential fans as it attracts." ‐ Sky Movies

The Hateful Eight (2015)

The Danish Girl (2015)

Grandma (2015)

"Tomlin ... compellingly plays Elle with a tart combination of anger and latterly sorrow as the movie sets up for a huge emotional sucker punch." ‐ Sky Movies

By The Sea (2015)

"It is beautifully staged - the movie is actually filmed in Malta - and well acted with Pitt and Jolie wordlessly conveying a mutual attraction fatally compromised by a grim turn of events that are only darkly hinted at." ‐ Sky Movies

The Night Before (2015)

"This doesn't depart too far from the familiar template of boy-men obliged to morph from dyed-in-the-wool party animals to responsible adults but it does it well enough." ‐ Sky Movies

Tangerine (2015)

You Only Live Twice (1967)
