5/5 Perrier's Bounty (2009) Stuart Messham Half comic tour de force and half "urban western," Perrier's Bounty is a 90-minute treat and, in case you hadn't gathered this by now, we recommend it. EDIT

5/5 Avatar (2009) Russell Clark It's all nonsense of course, but in the best possible way; pure Hollywood entertainment at it's best. Take the misses or take your mates, see it at the cinema and see it in 3D. This is, after all, what cinema was made for. EDIT

3/5 Where the Wild Things Are (2009) Stephen Daultrey His visualisation is a joy on the eyeballs. EDIT

2/5 2012 (2009) [Emmerich's] most cliched, predictable, overblown, special FX-milking EPIC yet. EDIT
Posted Nov 13, 2009
3/5 The Men Who Stare at Goats (2009) One of the year's most unique films. EDIT

4/5 District 9 (2009) As a sci-fi blockbuster, it will dazzle your eyeballs and have you cheering from your seat. As a social commentary, it makes for uneasy viewing, and wears its pro-humanity message proudly on its sleeve. EDIT

The Hurt Locker (2008) Maxim Staff If Alfred Hitchcock was reincarnated for a punt at the war action genre, his finished product might play out like The Hurt Locker. EDIT
Posted Aug 29, 2009
4/5 Sin nombre (2009) A hard-hitting tragi-masterpiece that jolts from tender sentimentality to gritty real-life violence . EDIT
Posted Aug 14, 2009
3/5 Antichrist (2009) Like David Lynch's Eraserhead, it's perhaps impossible that this flick will truly ENTERTAIN, but provided you can hang onto your sanity, its creepy mood and twisty f**ked-up ending will spin in your conscious for weeks to come. EDIT
Posted Jul 24, 2009
Brüno (2009) It's properly ridiculous, mad entertaining and, dare we say it, laugh-out-loud silly. EDIT
Posted Jul 10, 2009
The Hangover (2009) One of the funniest films we've seen in many a moon. EDIT
Posted Jun 12, 2009
Awaydays (2009) For an insight into an extinct and fascinating football culture, Awaydays will cut through you like one of The Pack's sharpened stanley knives. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2009
3/5 The End (2004) As well as being a candid portrayal of a bygone gangster life, The End's carving visceral edge and acute sense of storytelling gives it bags of rewatch value and quotability. A darn fine piece of work, The End deserves all its praises. EDIT
Posted May 1, 2009
3/5 Watchmen (2009) All the emotional investment you have in them comes from your familiarity with the book, meaning newcomers may be a little lost. It really does look beautiful, though. EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2009
4/5 Che: Part Two (2008) Meticulous in its showing of the nuts-and-bolts of jungle warfare, it may be the closest we'll ever get to an art-house action movie. As a tribute to Che, it beats a T-shirt. EDIT

3/5 Notorious (2009) Although guilty of assuming too much pre-knowledge on the viewer's part, it's a solid rap opus that snarls down Eminem's 8 Mile with heavyweight confidence. EDIT
