4/5 97% Tangerine (2015) From the most unlikely source, Baker fashions a love story of genuine poignancy, defiantly unsentimental and often emotionally brutal, yet profoundly touching.‐ Sky Movies

4/5 71% The Hallow (The Woods) (2015) The story may be a familiar one...but it's told with such verve and an eye for chilling detail that this marks Hardy out as one to watch.‐ Sky Movies

4/5 72% You Only Live Twice (1967) A major draw was the establishment of Blofeld -- only tantalisingly glimpsed in previous Bonds -- played with malevolent magnificence by Donald Pleasance sporting a painful scar around his eye.‐ Sky Movies

1/5 16% The Last Witch Hunter (2015) Eventually, it lumbers to an entirely predictable conclusion but never manages a feat of black magic that would convert it from ham-fisted clunker to guilty pleasure.‐ Sky Movies

3/5 71% Crimson Peak (2015) It's a story that loses momentum, the narrative lurching unsteadily towards the denouement in a story that perfectly illustrates that looks aren't everything.‐ Sky Movies

4/5 80% Macbeth (2015) Macbeth has been previously well served by Roman Polanski and Akira Kurosawa but Kurzel has fashioned a pared-down success of his own.‐ Sky Movies

2/5 26% Captive (2015) What begins as a straightforward thriller tracing a manhunt following a lethal courthouse shooting bizarrely morphs into a paean to the powers of a Christianity-themed self-help book.‐ Sky Movies

3/5 70% Miss You Already (2015) A story that must be applauded for its brutally honest depictions of the treatment required ...‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2015
100% Grass (1925) Although the 75-year-old footage is in black and white and lacks a soundtrack, the hardship and determination of the tribesmen and women is searingly evoked.‐ Sky Movies

3/5 44% Irrational Man (2015) Allen aims for the deliciously dark pleasures of ​Crimes and Misdemeanours but winds up with the dull cloddishness of ​Match Point.‐ Sky Movies

4/5 96% Dr. No (1962) Of course, it's dated -- a Sunbean Alpine isn't exactly cutting edge transport -- but the elegant playboy spy with just a whiff of danger was clearly here to stay.‐ Sky Movies

2/5 64% Ricki And The Flash (2015) About as original as a covers band.‐ Sky Movies

1/5 15% The Transporter Refueled (2015) This misogynist claptrap has been left in the dust by Bourne and the newly re-invigorated Bond franchise and deserves to be returned to sender.‐ Sky Movies

4/5 97% 45 Years (2015) Courtenay and Rampling have left it late to deliver possibly the most devastatingly telling performances of their careers. His doddering detachment provokes icy fury while she take passive aggression to new heights.‐ Sky Movies

4/5 83% Mistress America (2015) Greta Gerwig's ditzy typhoon socialite Brooke has to be one of the richest creations of writer-director Noah Baumbach's career.‐ Sky Movies

4/5 93% The Diary Of A Teenage Girl (2015) It will get up a lot of people's noses but this warm and grown-up film is shameless in the best sense of the word.‐ Sky Movies

1/5 9% The Cobbler (2015) It's difficult to believe this sentimental pudding is written and directed by Thomas McCarthy, who was behind the genuinely touching The Station Agent and The Visitor and wrote the script for Pixar's Up.‐ Sky Movies

3/5 36% Beyond The Reach (2015) It's never less than watchable and will do wonders for sales of aftersun.‐ Sky Movies

3/5 58% Maggie (2015) It's a small film compared with the blockbuster fare usually associated with Schwarzenegger, but one that will linger longer in the mind.‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2015
3/5 16% The Gallows (2015) The eerie stage set - evocative of 18th century Salem -makes for a genuinely creepy atmosphere and the decision by the film-makers to hold back with any terrifying revelations pays dividends.‐ Sky Movies

3/5 19% Self/less (2015) It ... manages to leaven a potentially leaden premise with a few gags that gently mock the absurdity yet never undermine it to a degree that it's anything less than enjoyable.‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2015
3/5 91% Love & Mercy (2015) It's a gently authorative and fond account of two key periods in Wilson's life and a sober overview of a career that threw up some of the best songs in popular music.‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 9, 2015
2/5 25% Terminator Genisys (2015) A tired, uninspired slog through the well-worn tropes of previous Terminator movies ...‐ Sky Movies

Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2015
4/5 88% Mr. Holmes (2015) A scintillatingly humane drama that's structured cleverly using the tropes of the traditional Holmes story yet taking the character in directions where he can rue his lack of imagination in a world where he functioned so ably as a coldly logical thinker.‐ Sky Movies

2/5 33% Entourage (2015) This Entourage isn't decent company at all.‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted Jun 18, 2015
4/5 96% The Look of Silence (2015) Disturbingly, Oppenheimer stills feels unable to publicly name his crew. A large chunk of the rolling credits still refers to them as "anonymous".‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted Jun 11, 2015
3/5 58% Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) Satisfyingly scary and occasionally genuinely disturbing, this is the perfect recipe for sleepless nights.‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted Jun 4, 2015
3/5 78% Danny Collins (2015) There's a marked change of plot about two-thirds through, which could derail the enjoyment of some viewers, but by the final credits you'll be calling for an encore.‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted May 28, 2015
3/5 32% Poltergeist (2015) Elevated to more than a so-so remake by a knowing script (a dinner party revelation that the house is built on an old graveyard) and terrific performances, particularly from Rockwell who's seemingly incapable of a bad one.‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted May 21, 2015
3/5 90% Spring (2015) Co-directors Benson and Moorhead cleverly maintain the likelihood of this most unlikely of holiday romances, taking their time to let the narrative breathe and flow.‐ Sky Movies

4/5 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) It's the cinematic ride of the year.‐ Sky Movies
Read More | Posted May 14, 2015
3/5 89% Clouds of Sils Maria (2015) Binoche is reliably good but it's Stewart who genuinely surprises, delivering a sexually-charged portrait of a girl who's youthfully vulnerable at one moment and a whipsmart mobile-phone juggling fixer the next.‐ Sky Movies
