Quantum of Solace (2008)
Star Trek (2009)
American Beauty (1999)
Chicken Run (2000)
Iron Man 3 (2013)
"Watching Robert Downey Jr play a charismatic swaggering d*ck is entertaining. Watching him play an emotionally damaged swaggering d*ck is compelling. With huge laughs and hugely entertaining twists Iron Man 3 is easily on of the best Marvel movies "
Olympus Has Fallen (2013)
Warm Bodies (2013)
Django Unchained (2012)
Zero Dark Thirty (2013)
Movie 43 (2013)
Beautiful Creatures (2013)
Cloud Atlas (2012)
"Despite the fact that ot sometimes looks like $102 million celebrity dress up party where Tom Hanks got a really good bulk deal on latex noses Cloud Atlas sometimes strikes moments of sheer beauty. "
Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)
A Good Day To Die Hard (2013)
The Host (2013)
The Rite (2011)
"Anthony Hopkins playing someone evil? SHOCKING. He is rather good at this schtick, but the script is flabby and cliche ridden. The young lead looks distractingly like an emo Ken doll too."
The Company Men (2011)
"Unemployment is not a naturally cinematic thing. A far-too-neat conclusion notwithstanding, This is a decent exploration of the psychology of what happens when you loose your job."
The Way Back (2011)
"There is a limit to how many times one human can watch toothless, malnourished men stumble around the desert bitching about communism and a lack of borscht."
The Adjustment Bureau (2011)
"Far too neat and schmaltzy but otherwise a surprisingly witty film from the Dark City/Inception mould."
Wasted on the Young (2010)
"Visually impressive, but the script needed a big angry red pen taken to it. Oh, and does every character need to shuffle around like they're in a My Chemical Romance video clip?"
Tron Legacy (2010)
"A fantastic big screen sensory experience that unfortunately has a plot built entirely from nonsensical technophilosphy wank"
"A superficial movie about beautiful people, when it needed to be a beautiful film about superficial people. Lacks the magic of Coppola's best movies."
The King's Speech (2010)
"Witty script, quirky performances, flawless casting and wonderfully inventive cinematography. Golf claps all round."
The Dilemma (2011)
"Some great chemistry between the central duo is undone by a plot that is so frustrating you will want to chew off your arm. It's so frustrating that the ending is a palpable relief."
Black Swan (2010)
"Sure, it's melodramatic and self-important, but Black swan is still a thing of rare terrifying, heartbreaking, surreal, monstrous and downright orgasmic beauty"
"Whether its real or not is irrelevant. Catfish is an amazing, tense, charming, soulful, utterly surprising portrait about technology & psychology"
How Do You Know (2010)
"Good news: you've got great actors with wonderful chemistry and comic timing. Bad News: they're playing some of the most irritating, unlikable, infuriating characters ever committed to film"
Tamara Drewe (2010)
"Starts with great wit and then dissipates into a hazy episodic mess"
The Next Three Days (2010)
"Solid performances, beautiful camerawork. It just would've been nice if they'd included some more twists and turns in the otherwise decent script"
Rabbit Hole (2010)
"When Nicole Kidman has full control of her facial muscles she is unrivaled in her ability to play cold, distant emotionally scarred bitches. Its a marvelous performance. That said, the film itself can be so anguished that you will need counseling upon exit"
127 Hours (2010)
"Danny Boyle makes you experience the ordeal in vivid, intimate details. You feel everything from the visceral agony to the utter triumph. It's brilliant movie-making"
No Strings Attached (2011)
"Quite the rarity for Hollywood romantic comedies, No Strings Attached is loaded with funny ideas. Portman creates a complex leading lady. It's a funny, sharp and wonderfully dirty"
"A great survival action movie where none of the cast should've been allowed to talk. The script is cliched. Roxburgh is essentially playing Bob Hawke underwater while Ioan Gruffud is inexplicably channeling De Niro."
"It's a juicy idea but it ends up playing out like an extended tv movie"
"Holy mother of god: behold the first M Night Shyamalan-associated film in the last 4 years that doesn't utterly blow."
"A brilliantly twisted idea, horribly executed"
"A well-plotted, genuinely fun spin on the Superhero/Supervillian genre with talented voice talent put to good use rather than simply stunt-cast"
The American (2010)
"Sparse, tense, beautiful... and strangely empty. The dialogue, plot and characterisation are nowhere near as deep or profound as the filmmakers seem to think they are."
