Star Trek (2009)
I didn't go to this with much enthusiasm but, of course, it's been completely reinvented by J.J. Abrams and he's done a terrific job.

The film is impeccably made, but more than that, the director who also composed the lovely music score, brings a rare degree of humanity to the intensely moving conclusion.

Crash (2004)
The performances are all spot-on.

The film was important socially because the Civil Rights Act had only come into being in 1964 and implementing it was another matter altogether.

5/5
This magnificent film represents the best work the Coen Brothers have done since Fargo. Like that classic this is a cold-blooded thriller with a darkly humorous edge.

John Wick (2014)
It's a film where there's almost no plot and what plot there is is totally predictable. So it's just a series of gun battles and, after five minutes or so, you get heartily sick of it.

Interstellar (2014)
I learnt a lot about wormholes and, while I can be entranced by the idea of saving the human race, I want a little bit of drama to go with it.

Interstellar (2014)
This is not only a tremendously exciting space adventure... It's also a rich and thoughtful meditation on time and space and gravity.

John Wick (2014)
John Wick was made by first time director Chad Stahelski, who came into the industry as a stuntman. His expertise in that area obviously came in handy with this.

3.5/5
I can't say I was always quite sure what on Earth was going on, but Edge of Tomorrow, despite its flaws, despite its feeling of deja vu, manages to be tolerably entertaining mainly because of its nicely calibrated sense of humour.

These battered, scratched pieces of film are eloquent testimony for the terrible offences that happened.

I guess I am a sucker for these sort of time travel films, travelling back in time to change the course of history.

In Bruges (2008)
It all gets a little bit chaotic but at the same time I enjoyed this film.

It is such a wonderful story and I think it's a rather prosaic treatment that it's been given.

3.5/5
It's a film with great humanism and if it's a little light on true drama or even realism it's intentions are honourable.

This super-cool post-modern take on Hollywood and the detective genre has been so cleverly written by Black.

Bad Santa (2003)
Bad Santa is definitely not PC, it's rude and crude and, I think, very funny.

Miyazaki's vision is an extraordinary one, and Howl's Moving Castle confirms his fascination for transformations, for dangerous journeys and strange adventures.

3.5/5
The characters, especially those of the two ten-year-old protagonists, ring true and when, just past the midway point, tragedy strikes it's quite devastating.

Bull Durham (1988)
It's not just the screenplay, it's the performances and direction that make this film.

When we see photos or film footage taken at great risk on the front line we rarely stop to think of the price paid by the photographer; this film rectifies that.

The Captive (2014)
Ryan Reynolds is solid as Matthew and the film looks stunning, cinematographer Paul Sarossy has captured the Ontario winter beautifully. But the production design is strange, [and] quite a few things don't quite gel.

Jimmy's Hall (2015)

Jimmy's Hall (2015)
In a way this is Loach-lite; it's a decent, concerned film but perhaps a little too pat and a little too familiar, though it's beautifully made.

Nightcrawler (2014)
It's really an interesting film in a lot of ways and I was never bored but I also felt that it didn't really soar as much as I wanted it to.

Nightcrawler (2014)
The noirish photography by Robert Elswit, best known for his work with Paul Thomas Anderson, is highly effective, making contemporary Los Angeles at night look nightmarish, and the performances are superb.

I think all the acting in this in good. Adam Sandler is very good. Jennifer Garner is very good. It's just that I found it contrived.

I'm not sure that Reitman has completely succeeded. But he's been well served by a splendid cast, both young and adult, and the film certainly packs in a message.

This is a delicious, bright and cheerful film.
