BB King: The Life of Riley (2014)
"An intuitive and appealing documentary about the life of one of the world's most recognised Blues musicians, but BB King: The Life of Riley sometimes grows a bit repetitive and its chronological sequence is rather bland."
Paranormal Activity 4 (2012)
"Succeeds thanks to likeable performances from Kathryn Newton and Matt Shively, though it stops short of pushing the franchise mythology any further forward and criminally under-uses its latest camera-based gimmick."
"Easily the best film of the franchise so far, thanks to a witty script, colourful new characters, lively animation, inspired direction and some impressive 3D work, not to mention some exceptional comic timing."
Ginger & Rosa (2013)
Hit & Run (2012)
Hotel Transylvania (2012)
On the Road (2012)
Ruby Sparks (2012)
"A hugely enjoyable, superbly written and brilliantly acted fantasy relationship comedy that eventually reveals a much darker undercurrent and is ultimately both thought-provoking and powerfully emotional."
Ballroom Dancer (2013)
The Knot (2012)
Taken 2 (2012)
"This stylish, but rather dull, German drama has good intentions and some strong performances but unfortunately Barbara fails to entice, enchant and entertain, thanks to its unlikeable lead character and discouraging slow pace."
The Campaign (2012)
"Entertaining comedy with a handful of big laughs and great performances from a strong comic cast, but the tone is a little uneven and the film is slightly hamstrung by the desire to keep its characters likeable."
Holy Motors (2012)
"This is an astonishing and audacious film that is quite simply unlike anything else you'll see all year, thanks to stylish direction, a wilfully strange script and a glorious central performance from Denis Lavant."
Now Is Good (2012)
"Hysteria is nicely played and has its fair share of decent moments, but the script struggles to find the right tone and it's hard to escape the feeling that the actual true story might have been a bit more interesting."
Killing Them Softly (2012)
Tower Block (2012)
The Sweeney (2013)
"The Sweeney is pacily directed, superbly acted and delivers some exciting action sequences, but the only elements that remain from the TV show are the names of the characters and the central catchphrase."
About Elly (2015)
Hope Springs (2012)
"Emotionally engaging and brilliantly acted, this is a sharply observed relationship comedy-drama that deserves credit for sensitively tackling a subject that's surprisingly taboo in mainstream movies."
Premium Rush (2012)
The Snows of Kilimanjaro (2011)
To Rome with Love (2012)
Anna Karenina (2012)
"Commendably faithful, stylishly directed reboot of the 2000AD character with impressive special effects, striking production design work, a suitably gritty, stripped down script and a trio of terrific performances from Urban, Thirlby and Headey."
Total Recall (2012)
A Few Best Men (2012)
Berberian Sound Studio (2013)
"Brilliantly directed, cleverly written and beautifully designed drama that plays like a disturbing Lynchian loveletter to the art of horror filmmaking and features a terrific performance from Toby Jones."
Cockneys vs Zombies (2013)
The Watch (2012)
