Knight & Day (2010)
The opening mid-air shootout is edgy, funny and clouded in question-raising mystique. It's everything the film that follows is not.

Be it documentary or mockumentary, art of graffiti, there's no denying that Exit Through the Gift Shop is damn good cinema.

Rejoice! Hollywood have, at long last, made a video game adaptation that is not complete tripe.

Robin Hood (2010)
In director Ridley Scott's take [of Robin Hood], what was green is now grey, lively now lethargic and merry now miserable.

Diabetics steer clear; so awfully saccharine is the derivative romantic drama Letters to Juliet, it may induce a hyperglycemic coma.

3/5
Iron Man 2 (2010)
Unambitiously [believes] that only way to improve on the original is to add more of everything. More heroes! More villains! More CGI! And more Robert Downey Jr.! Surprisingly, the result isn't all bad.

Harry Brown (2010)
The moment Barber resorts to over-the-top violence as a means to an end, Harry Brown becomes an unintentional farce.

The most important message of [ How to Train Your Dragon] is from DreamWorks to their rivals Pixar. It simply reads, "We're baaaack."

Kick-Ass (2010)
Kick-Ass is what Spider-Man would have looked like if it was directed by Quentin Tarantino using the cast of Spy Kids. In other words, pure awesome.

Cop Out (2010)
Some of the jokes in [Cop Out] are so far beyond the realms of lame, you have to wonder whether it's intentional.

Even as cushy popcorn action, Green Zone misfires.

If it is to be remembered, it'll be for all the wrong reasons.

The closest you'll get to absolute madness without being locked in a room with padded walls...a wondrous piece of escapism.

Armed to the teeth with more action movie clich├ęs than a Steven Seagal show reel. Yep, it has 'guilty pleasure' stamped all over it.

A Single Man (2009)
Thanks to Ford's acute sense of style, such sobering themes have never looked so good.

2/5
The Wolfman (2010)
Johnston's direction sidesteps suspense to deliver a surplus of tactless, out-of-nowhere jump scares that are more irritating than frightening.

3.5/5
Arriving in the wake of the awfully mawkish Invictus and the overbearingly bleak The Road, Precious succeeds because it strikes a balance between the two emotional extremes.

2.5/5
It's likely that The Princess and the Frog will be remembered for being the first Disney animation to feature a black princess, rather than for being a great movie.

Daybreakers (2010)
Yes, Daybreakers is another vampire film, but don't hold it against it. This is stuff Twilight fans have nightmares about...

In another time and place, Law Abiding Citizen could have been an intelligent critique of a flawed criminal justice system. Instead, I present you Gerard Butler, ruthlessly hacking a guy into 25 little pieces.

Up in the Air is one of few movies to truly get with the times, and actually get it right.

Nowhere Boy (2010)
A gratifying music biopic that is surprisingly humble in its treatment of John Lennon

Coffin Rock (2009)
Just off the beaten track from Wolf Creek and Cape Fear is Rupert Glasson's promising feature debut Coffin Rock; a must-see destination for deftly crafted thrills and chills.

1/5
Invictus (2009)
Like the pseudo biopic on Mandela, the rugby half is both shallow and generic, qualities echoed by the horrendously mawkish theme song 'Colorblind' that is enough to make Invictus seem like a parody of an inspirational film.

3.5/5
A film that shines only in short, erratic bursts. It can be an emotional film, a disturbing film, a romantic film, a funny film and a breathtaking film, but never a seamless blend of each.

Avatar (2009)
Coating classic romanticism with breathtaking 3D visuals, Avatar transports us to another world for 162 minutes of sensory bliss.

The Road (2009)
Watching McCarthy's story unfold is a lot like listening to a brooding musician hold down the lowest key on a piano for two unrelenting hours.

Planet 51 (2009)
I'm going to go out on a limb and say Planet 51 was written by a bunch of monkeys...who were trapped in a room with some typewriters. Surprisingly, the works of Shakespeare are the only texts they haven't blatantly ripped off.

Squeamishly forthright and deliberately rough-around-the-edges, Sattouf's film humorously captures the weird, wonderful and often humiliating stages of adolescence.

Visually striking...[but] it feels as if Acker was pressured into making a money-making thrill ride instead of a mind-mulling sci-fi.

If Sendak's book spoke directly to the child inside all of us, Spike Jonze's film adaptation lets it run wild for 100 magical minutes.

What's this? A deliciously witty, wildly imaginative and visually spectacular 3D animated film that's not by Pixar studios!? How did this happen?

There's a bit more meat on the bones of Meyer's story and less meandering schmaltz, but [...] it's still a gruelling endurance test for anyone with a Y chromosome.

2012 (2009)
Roland Emmerich's 2012th epic disaster movie to date (give or take) is spectacularly loud, laughably ludicrous and insanely entertaining for all the wrong reasons.

The Wrestler (2008)
It's brutal yet sincere, funny yet solemn -- Darren Aronofsky has made a remarkable film that expertly depicts the reality of a sport it both honours and berates.

Case 39 (2010)
Strictly by-the-numbers supernatural horror...that doesn't solely rely on its taboo subject matter for all the shocks, boasting moments of genuine suspense.

2.5/5
Although it's essentially a glorified special feature for a concert DVD, it's a fitting eulogy for fans (and fans alone) that is thankfully not overwrought with sentimentality.

The Box (2009)
A logically impaired, hyperbolic mess that darts from one high-concept idea to another as flowingly, and painfully, as someone with a bladder infection.

Like a travelling sideshow, Imaginarium drifts from one weird and wonderful idea to another without any discernible plan or structure, kept alive by novelty value

Yes, Capitalism is a well argued documentary, but let's not forget the fact that Moore...is capitalising on being critical of capitalism.
