The Baltic Times
Puss in Boots (2011)
The Expendables (2010)
The Karate Kid (2010)
"At two hours plus the film is much too long (do we really need that many montages of seeing Smith train?), but it just manages to provide enough watchable entertainment to keep less demanding members of the audience happy."
The Switch (2010)
"Bateman and Aniston are fine but don't have any real chemistry together, whilst the direction is flat and rather uninteresting. It has the occasional good moment, but "The Switch" fails to push any buttons. Or, indeed, pull any switches."
The Social Network (2010)
"Even if you've never touched a computer in your life, you'll find plenty to be fascinated by in this movie, as it shows that, whilst technology may be moving fast, the human capacity for hubris will always remain the same."
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
"The entire film works on just how much you are willing to accept its premise: if you're fine with people developing amazing powers, characters talking directly to the camera and almost every other trick in the cinematic book, then you'll do fine"
"All the stars seem to be having great fun playing goodies and baddies and running around shooting things. But they could do the same thing paintballing, sparing us from having to watch them and avoiding having to spend 60 million dollars in the process. "
"This is designed to keep the children happy over the Christmas period and fans of CS Lewis will enjoy the fact that it's a pretty faithful adaptation. But those wanting something different from the usual CGI extravaganza would do well to look elsewher"
Tron Legacy (2010)
"If you examine it closely then the entire film falls apart. But if you go along to enjoy the thrills (especially when it's showing in 3D) and cool action sequences, then you should be thoroughly entertained. "
The Green Hornet (2011)
"There are some good ideas here but they're buried under masses of conventional superhero dross and half hearted execution. This is one vigilante who should really just leave all the hard work to the police."
The King's Speech (2010)
"The story is consistently fascinating (though it certainly plays rather fast and loose with historical facts) whilst Hooper manages to wring dramatic tension out of some of the most seemingly mundane incidents.y."
Inside Job (2010)
The Eagle (2011)
Fast Five (2011)
Water for Elephants (2011)
"If it had been cut to about 90 minutes, this could have been a bright and breezy adventure that zipped along at a cracking pace. As it is, it's a rather bloated actioner that has one or two great moments. "
The Hangover Part II (2011)
Bad Teacher (2011)
"Kadan's direction is adequate with everything competently done, but there's nothing here that manages to make you laugh out loud. Could someone tell the current crop of Hollywood filmmakers to find some new jokes?"
Cowboys & Aliens (2011)
Casino Jack (2010)
Friends With Benefits (2011)
The Adventures of Tintin (2011)
The Rum Diary (2011)
