8/10 Funny People (2009) Simon Thompson I loved this, it's hilarious, heart warming and a little stroke of genius.. EDIT
Posted Aug 29, 2009
6/10 A Perfect Getaway (2009) Simon Thompson It's not a classic and doesn't have all the tension it maybe should have. It's basically distracting Hollywood thriller fluff that is enjoyable enough in the right mood. EDIT
Posted Aug 14, 2009
5/10 The Time Traveler's Wife (2009) Simon Thompson It's quite bland and could do with a bit more fire in its belly. More than adequate but nothing really special. EDIT
Posted Aug 14, 2009
6/10 Orphan (2009) Simon Thompson Okay, so I saw the ending coming a mile off (and no, I'm not going to spoil it for everyone by telling you what happens) but that didn't stop me actually enjoying this guilty pleasure. EDIT

5/10 The Ugly Truth (2009) Simon Thompson If this film was a pizza it would be a Margherita - it fills a hole but could do with a few more ingredients. EDIT
Posted Aug 7, 2009
6/10 G-Force (2009) Simon Thompson This is actually great (if ultimately silly and slightly cheesy) fun with quite a few nice sly digs at the genre that is trying to snuggle up to. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2009
6/10 The Taking of Pelham 123 (2009) Simon Thompson It moves along at a decent pace but I'd have liked something more - but what exactly, I can't quite put my finger on. EDIT
Posted Jul 31, 2009
6/10 The Proposal (2009) Simon Thompson The Proposal might not be ground breaking stuff, but it's a delightful and very enjoyable distraction that will lift your spirits. EDIT
Posted Jul 24, 2009
10/10 Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009) Simon Thompson An impressive film that stands out as the jewel in the Potter crown. EDIT
Posted Jul 10, 2009
4/10 Brüno (2009) Simon Thompson That's not to say that there aren't funny moments here because there are some really choice moments but they are lost in the mix of purile and often uncomfortable moments that really are below what you'd expect from the team behind this. EDIT
Posted Jul 10, 2009
9/10 Public Enemies (2009) Simon Thompson Whilst there is a lot of gun action and violent set pieces in this, it's really a piece that is really all about the characters and it hands down the best gangster movie of the last decade... at least. One of this year's few must see movies. EDIT
Posted Jul 3, 2009
8/10 Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009) Simon Thompson This is the coolest film of the summer as far as family fun goes. EDIT
Posted Jul 3, 2009
9/10 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009) Simon Thompson Despite its few faults, this is this summer's biggest ticket and ties with Star Trek for the best summer blockbuster of 2009. EDIT
Posted Jun 19, 2009
3/10 The Last House on the Left (2009) Simon Thompson This is not a horror, it's a thriller and as a thriller it's moderately effective but as it a film it won't leave you feeling entertained or thrilled, just a bit uncomfortable. EDIT
Posted Jun 12, 2009
9/10 The Hangover (2009) Simon Thompson With a great soundtrack and script so sharp you might need to take plasters into the cinemas with you because you might come out with cuts... this is this summer's must see comedy. EDIT
Posted Jun 12, 2009
7/10 Last Chance Harvey (2008) Simon Thompson Last Chance Harvey is an absolute gem of a movie and the perfect antidote to all the big budget vehicles that are on release right now. Magical. EDIT
Posted Jun 5, 2009
5/10 Terminator Salvation (2009) Simon Thompson Better than Terminator 3:Rise Of The Machines but that's not saying much. Adequate but disappointing. EDIT
Posted Jun 5, 2009
5/10 Jonas Brothers: The Concert Experience (2009) Simon Thompson Is it any good? That really all depends on whether you're a fan of the Jonas Brothers. EDIT
Posted May 29, 2009
7/10 Obsessed (2009) Simon Thompson This is a guilty pleasure from start to finish and there is absolutely nothing new here but Obsessed is brilliant fun. EDIT
Posted May 29, 2009
8/10 Drag Me to Hell (2009) Simon Thompson Drag Me To Hell is the greatest horror film of the decade and is a must see for scare fans. Gore-geous! EDIT
Posted May 29, 2009
6/10 Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (2009) Simon Thompson Kids are well served with slapstick hi-jinks and mild peril but there are too few laugh out loud moments to keep adults entertained. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2009
6/10 Angels & Demons (2009) Simon Thompson This isn't a bad film at all, but it could be better... and I am very aware that regardless of what I think it will be huge. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2009
8/10 Coraline (2009) Simon Thompson Off-beat, weird, original, intense, stunning, jaw-dropping, enthralling and ingenious, this film is a beautiful piece of work that will hold your attention and capture your heart. EDIT
Posted May 8, 2009
9/10 Star Trek (2009) Simon Thompson This is everything a summer blockbuster should be. Star Trek is a film that will delight fans and impress people who have usually steered clear of the franchise. EDIT
Posted May 8, 2009
7/10 Is Anybody There? (2008) Simon Thompson Despite this being a small film with a small budget the cast, including a never better Michael Caine, give it their all and turn in superb performances. EDIT
Posted May 1, 2009
5/10 Hannah Montana: The Movie (2009) Simon Thompson Kids will love this, put adults might find this a bit too much. EDIT
Posted May 1, 2009
8/10 X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) Simon Thompson The action is fast and furious, the script is impressive for this type of movie and the visual effects (apart from the odd occasion) are phenomenal. This is a not to be missed blockbuster that will impress as much as it will entertain. EDIT
Posted May 1, 2009
8/10 State of Play (2009) Simon Thompson This is the best thriller of the year so far. Exciting, interesting, gripping and impossible not to get sucked into, this is a great movie. EDIT
Posted Apr 25, 2009
9/10 In the Loop (2009) Simon Thompson A fantastic cast, a razor sharp script and an all too realistic story makes this an absolute must see. EDIT
Posted Apr 17, 2009
8/10 I Love You, Man (2009) Simon Thompson This is a brilliant date movie that you'll be able to relate to on some level - take your best friends too! Make it a double date movie. EDIT
Posted Apr 17, 2009
6/10 Race to Witch Mountain (2009) Simon Thompson While this isn't a bad film, it's a touch too dry and maybe even a bit too slow for it to be the rush it should be. EDIT
Posted Apr 9, 2009
7/10 Fast & Furious (2009) Simon Thompson This is not rocket science, it won't tax your brain, it won't win any Oscars but it will have you on the edge of your seat and give you a great two hours of adrenaline pumping entertainment. EDIT
Posted Apr 9, 2009
7/10 17 Again (2009) Simon Thompson Zac has star quality and it starts to shine here. He's got an exciting future ahead of him - and it's not just amongst the tween audience. EDIT
Posted Apr 9, 2009
8/10 Monsters vs. Aliens (2009) Simon Thompson This is probably THE family film of the year so far and it's one that has enough grown up (and by that I don't mean rude) gags to ensure that adults enjoy this too. The script is razor sharp and the voice cast is spot one. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2009
6/10 Pirate Radio (2009) Simon Thompson The Boat That Rocked is about 40 minutes too long, relies on too many obvious and repetitive gags and tends to sag and loose pace too often for a Richard Curtis film. The good news is that this is no where near as drab or unentertaining as Wimbledon. EDIT
Posted Apr 3, 2009
8/10 The Damned United (2009) Simon Thompson Brilliant and possibly the best British film of the last 5 years. EDIT
Posted Mar 27, 2009
4/10 Knowing (2009) Simon Thompson What starts out as a tense and interesting movie slowly becomes an end of the world sci-fi mess that is too long and not exciting enough. EDIT
Posted Mar 27, 2009
3/10 The Unborn (2009) Simon Thompson After a few initial decent scares, the corny dialogue, poor casting and cringe-worthy acting drag this movie into it's own hell. Utter rubbish. EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2009
8/10 The Young Victoria (2009) Simon Thompson Young Victoria is like a breath of fresh air for the genre. EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2009
7/10 Watchmen (2009) Simon Thompson This is a landmark film for the genre that will impress, amaze and grip but it is not light entertainment. EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2009
5/10 The Pink Panther 2 (2009) Simon Thompson I laughed more times than I thought I would so that is a big improvement on the previous film which almost made my toes curl. It will keep the kids quiet over half term and it won't be the worst film you see this year. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2009
8/10 Bolt (2008) Simon Thompson Bolt is enormous fun from start to finish for adults and kids alike. Disney animation doesn't get much better than this - especially when in many places you will get to see this in 3D. EDIT
Posted Feb 6, 2009
10/10 The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) Simon Thompson Benjamin Button is an absolute masterpiece and is probably one of the greatest films of all time. EDIT
Posted Feb 6, 2009
9/10 Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (2008) Simon Thompson It's up there with some of the best teen movies of the 80s as pure pleasure that will make you feel 17 again. Brilliantly uplifting and heart warming stuff. EDIT
Posted Jan 30, 2009
8/10 Revolutionary Road (2008) Simon Thompson A great script, visually stunning cinematography and great direction from Kate's husband Sam Mendes make this a remarkable experience. EDIT
Posted Jan 30, 2009
7/10 Valkyrie (2008) Simon Thompson Valkyrie it's a good film with more than enough there to keep your attention and for you to have come away feeling satisfied and informed. EDIT
Posted Jan 23, 2009
9/10 Frost/Nixon (2008) Simon Thompson An absolutely brilliant film from director Ron Howard - a film you should make every effort to see. EDIT
Posted Jan 23, 2009
9/10 Twilight (2008) I admit it does lay some of the teen angst on with a trowel, and it looks like 90210 meets Lost Boys but who cares? Excellent fun. Love it! EDIT
Posted Dec 19, 2008
8/10 The Tale of Despereaux (2008) Simon Thompson This film is a triumph and will delight everyone in your family. Superb. EDIT
Posted Dec 19, 2008
7/10 Inkheart (2009) It is a good -looking enthralling film with a traditional feel that does exactly what it says on the tin. Be warned though, some scenes might be a bit too intense for the really young. EDIT
