King Of The Travellers (2012)
"An Irish drama about feuding Travellers, King of the Travellers is watchable enough, but the poor script, sub-standard performances and unconvincing romantic subplot mean it's ultimately forgettable."
In the House (2013)
War Witch (2013)
"An appealing film that tackles the alarming subject of forced child marriage, but unfortunately director Jeremy Teicher struggles with extracting natural performances from his cast of local villagers."
In The Shadow Of The Sun (2012)
"An eye-opening and awareness-raising film documenting the cruel treatment of albinism in Tanzania, In the Shadow of the Sun is an emotionally gripping and truly harrowing documentary with an inspiring message of courage and strength."
12 in a Box (2009)
G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013)
"Disappointing sequel that falls down thanks to an incoherent script, lazy dialogue, a surfeit of characters, a phoned-in performance by Bruce Willis and an insultingly callous attitude towards its onscreen destruction."
Alias Ruby Blade (2012)
The Croods (2013)
I Superbiker (2011)
Identity Thief (2013)
Jack the Giant Slayer (2013)
Post Tenebras Lux (2013)
"This dark and slightly surreal Mexican film is beautifully shot and features a string of naturalistic and impressive performances, but sadly its bizarre blend of eccentric scenes don't really come together."
"Enjoyable comedy with a decent script and strong comic performances from a superb cast, though the central rivalry is underdeveloped and it settles for being consistently gently amusing rather than delivering big laughs."
The Paperboy (2012)
"Sweaty, sleazy and gloriously trashy, this is a thoroughly enjoyable slice of Southern-fried neo-noir with stylish direction, a delightfully twisted script and a trio of terrific performances from Nicole Kidman, Matthew McConaughey and Zac Efron."
Welcome to the Punch (2013)
The Guilt Trip (2012)
"Enjoyable mother-son road movie that swerves the potential potholes of broad or outrageous comedy in favour of an engaging, emotionally convincing and ultimately moving portrait of the central relationship ..."
Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)
Robot & Frank (2012)
Gangs of Wasseypur (2014)
"This blood-splattered finale to the Indian crime saga is action-packed and provides a rewarding payoff to audiences, but it's sometimes difficult to care about certain characters and the overstretched running time once again feels unnecessary."
"An enjoyable Thai drama with a poignant message, Hi-So has a notable script and some admirable performances, but the slow pacing and lack of spark in the second act can make it a little arduous to watch."
Safe Haven (2013)
"Watchable, beautifully shot and nicely paced Nicholas Sparks romance, enlivened by strong performances and a decent amount of chemistry between the two leads, though the script takes a nosedive into unintentionally hilarious territory in the final act."
Sleep Tight (2012)
"Impressively directed and superbly written, this is a thoroughly gripping and deeply disturbing Spanish chiller with a terrific central performance from Luis Tosar. It's also, for my money, one of the best films of the year."
Broken City (2013)
"Dismal action/adventure fantasy that consists of nothing more than a series of badly directed fight sequences and fails to engage on every conceivable level, thanks to poor direction, lacklustre performances and a badly written, frequently idiotic script."
"A visually stunning, powerfully atmospheric and emotionally intense drama with a Hitchcock-inspired script, a tonne of clever references and a trio of terrific performances from Wasikowska, Kidman and Goode."
Breath Of The Gods (2013)
"A draining, but detailed documentary, Breath of the Gods presents an insightful look at the origins of Yoga, but its slow narrative and low entertainment value can make it a little difficult to watch."
Cloud Atlas (2012)
Fire In The Blood (2013)
Unfinished Song (2013)
To The Wonder (2013)
Beautiful Creatures (2013)
"Watchable teen fantasy romance enlivened by strong performances and some nice ideas, though it's a little early to tell if it has the full-on Twilight potential the filmmakers are clearly hoping for."
Run For Your Wife (2013)
This is 40 (2012)
