Ice Age: Collision Course (2016)
"It boasts four comedy stars at the top of their game and a director fresh from revolutionising contemporary comedy, but this reboot of one of the biggest hits in the comedy fantasy arena is uninspired, bland and lame-brained."
Notes on Blindness (2016)
Queen of Earth (2015)
Central Intelligence (2016)
The BFG (2016)
"Twinkly-eyed, vulnerable and melancholic, Rylance exudes soulful warmth pours off the screen in a well-rounded, elegant characterisation -- even if the CGI does sometimes leave him looking like a Middle-earth Noel Edmonds."
No Home Movie (2016)
Ma ma (2016)
The Last King (2016)
Les Cowboys (2016)
The Meddler (2016)
Adult Life Skills (2016)
"Employs an engaging, if sometimes strained blend of quirky comedy and mawkish melodrama to explore the emotional state of a 29-year-old striving to reconcile the loss of a beloved twin brother with the need to get on with her own life."
The Secret Life of Pets (2016)
Elvis & Nixon (2016)
The Sugarland Express (1974)
"The set pieces are beautifully handled, grizzled veteran Ben Johnson is watchable as the head cop on their tail, and, looking back, it's clear that Spielberg already held all the aces and knew how to deal them."
Spice World (1998)
"The first (and as it transpired only) feature film to exploit the enormous success of pop quintet the Spice Girls, this is an attempt to capture the comedic style of the Beatles films, and not nearly as bad as it might have been."
Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)
The Violators (2015)
"The young leads are excellent ... as is first-time cinematographer Tobin Jones, who eschews the grimy greys of traditional northern realism to capture the everyday locales in plangently living colour."
The Girl King (2015)
Cemetery of Splendor (2016)
"Frank and fairly explicit, the events nevertheless unfold through a prism of sensitivity and compassion, with Husson sidestepping the sensationalism suggested by the provocative title and subject matter."
The Keeping Room (2015)
Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016)
Gods Of Egypt (2016)
The Conjuring 2 (2016)
The World's End (2013)
"here's an engaging chemistry between the five boozers, while the surprise cameos, early 1990s indie soundtrack, zany violence and visual effects add to a self-aware, matey romp that slips down a treat."
When Marnie Was There (2015)
Noma: My Perfect Storm (2015)
"Foremost in this fly-on-the-wall report is the fascinating contradiction of Redzepi himself, whose abrasive perfectionism appears to be prompted by the prejudice he suffered in his youth after his family moved to Denmark from humble roots in Macedonia."
Miracles from Heaven (2016)
"Though unquestionably a film of faith, Miracles from Heaven doesn't ram its religiosity down your throat quite as much as many others of its kind do. Not until a horribly over-fluffy finale, that is."
Fire at Sea (Fuocoammare) (2016)
Learning To Drive (2015)
Where to Invade Next (2016)
Mother's Day (2016)
The Boss (2016)
"It's not often that a film suffers from taking too little time to tell its story, but two hours just doesn't seem enough to establish the vastness of Jones's vision and still deliver something with an emotional impact."
The Silent Storm (2014)
