The Three Stooges (2012)
"An extremely faithful reboot that delivers some huge laughs, thanks to a witty script, pacy direction, some inspired comic set-pieces and a trio of terrific performances from Sean Hayes, Chris Diamantopoulos and Will Sasso."
In Your Hands (Contre Toi) (2010)
"In Your Hands is an intriguing, emotionally complex drama with a terrific central performance from Kristin Scott Thomas, but it's also frustratingly slow in the middle section and it's difficult to engage with the characters."

A Simple Life (2012)
"This poignant and emotional relationship study between an ageing servant and her employer requires more punch and focus, but is still a tender and heartfelt piece of drama with outstanding lead performances."
"Competent threequel that will appeal to fans of both the previous films and of Jeff Kinney's books, but it once again sidelines its best character, fails to deliver on its emotional moments and contains very few actual laughs."
"This colourful documentary about one of America's most important design teams provides an extraordinary presentation of an impressive portfolio, but when it comes to the Eames' personal life some questions are left unanswered."
The Flowers of War (2011)
"Impressively directed and beautifully shot, this is a compelling, superbly acted drama that exerts a powerful emotional grip, though it's impossible not to suspect that certain liberties have been taken with the actual events."
Sound of My Voice (2012)
"Smartly written, well made and superbly acted indie thriller that makes the most of its low budget and confirms co-writer/star Brit Marling as a talent to watch, though it's slightly let down by a frustrating climax."
Searching for Sugar Man (2012)
"Hugely entertaining and powerfully emotional, this is a terrific, well made documentary that tells a gripping story and unearths an astonishing musical find; it's also one of the best films of the year."
Dr Seuss' The Lorax (2012)
"Watchable eco-friendly comedy that scrapes a pass thanks to lively animation, colourful characters and a handful of amusing gags, though the script is rather thin and the plot feels both lazy and underdeveloped."
"Offers a fascinating glimpse into the world of culinary science and it's hard not to marvel at the skill and expertise on display, but the fly-on-the-wall style strips the film of context and it ultimately becomes a little dull."
The Man Inside (2012)
"Engaging, well made urban drama with striking camerawork, strong performances and a powerful central theme, though the dialogue wobbles occasionally and there are a couple of embarrassingly bad lines."
The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
"A fitting and satisfying end to the trilogy, thanks to an engaging plot, stunning effects sequences and terrific performances from a superb cast, though the fight scenes are still a little disappointing and key elements are frustratingly underwritten."

Magic Mike (2012)
You've Been Trumped (2012)
"Gives a vital airing to a virtually unheard side of a truly sickening story, but it's also thoroughly depressing to watch and you can't help wishing Baxter had tried harder to confront the people responsible."
The Players (2014)
Ping Pong (2012)
"A hugely enjoyable addition to the heartwarming competition-based documentary genre, with likeable characters, suspenseful competition sequences, a great soundtrack and an uplifting central message."
The Imposter (2012)
"Impressively directed and skilfully edited, this is an utterly riveting true crime documentary that exerts a powerful grip and is by turns chilling, shocking and disturbing. It's also one of the best films of the year."
The Hunter (2012)
7 Days in Havana (2012)
"Lively, beautifully shot anthology drama in which, inevitably, some sections are stronger than others, though it's also slightly too long, lacks depth and never really comes together in a satisfying fashion."

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
