Sunshine (2007)

"This is Sci-fi at its proudest; an incredible achievement that reminds us why Danny Boyle is the best British director working today."

"The cinematic equivalent of Brussels sprouts; parents will drag their kids to see it whether they want to go or not, and it's bound to leave an unpleasant aftertaste in the mouths of all ages."

"It's all just far too Wes Craven for its own good. He gave Aja free rein to innovate, but as he writes this sequel he rests on every single genre cliché because he doesn't understand that they're still clichés even if he did invent them."

The Last Kiss (2006)

"Strong performances and interesting ideas make the film worth a gamble but it's far from the relationship classic it longs to be."

"Original, on the big screen at least, and entertaining in spite of its problems, The History Boys remains a fine example of this country's talent both in front and behind the camera."

"These are voices that deserve to be heard and that there are filmmakers like Stone willing to hear them is more important than anything that might follow."

Clerks II (2006)

"...Probably the funniest film Smith has done since the original - it's chock full of childish humour and witty observations on pop-culture - but there's something real beneath all of that as well. Something, dare it be said, touching."

"One of the finest British films of the year, Driving Lessons is a powerful calling card for Grint, who's just turned 18, and, indeed, for Brock's talent as a director. Here's hoping there's a long career in store for both."

The Sentinel (2006)

Crank (2006)

"That Linklater can keep a light tone running through the film in spite of weighty subject matter ensures that A Scanner Darkly is accessible enough for wide audiences without dumbing down for others."

"As a comedy it's hugely optimistic and as a drama it's wonderfully emotional and that we're afforded the opportunity to make the call for one or the other for ourselves makes this a very clever film."

The Break-Up (2006)

"This Superman takes flight like few before and one wonders whether the film's minor flaws mean only that the sequel, like Singer's X2, is destined to become a real classic of the genre."

Taxi Driver (1976)

"Is Travis a hero or a monster? The question is never answered to any satisfying degree, and Herrmann's score makes sure of that by always playing up the counterpoint of a scene."

"A concert film for people who don't like concert films, Dave Chappelle's Block Party does such a good job of putting you in the middle of the action that only the end credits can remind you that you're sitting in a movie theatre."
