4/5 Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) Stephen Lambrechts Avengers: Age of Ultron is a perfect example of the kind of crowd-pleasing blockbuster that audiences expect in this day and age, though I don't think it will achieve classic-status like the first film. EDIT

3/5 Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) Stephen Lambrechts While it's not the mind-blowing event that the first film was, there's still enjoyment to be had, and Eva Green makes anything she stars in a must see. EDIT

4.5/5 Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) Stephen Lambrechts While Serkis continues to do 'chimpressive' work in his second outing as Caesar, the standout ape performance of the film comes from Toby Kebbell as the violent and angry Koba. EDIT

4/5 X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) Stephen Lambrechts Bryan Singer has undoubtedly made the best X-Men film since X2, with a great premise that is not only complex and rooted in sci-fi, but one that also manages to correct just about every crappy decision made in X-Men: The Last Stand. EDIT

3/5 Blind Alley (2011) Stephen Lambrechts Even with its final act drop-of-the-ball, BLIND ALLEY is easy to recommend to fans of stylish Euro horror flicks, and to anyone who longs for a return of the good old days, when style and colourful camera-work reigned supreme. EDIT

5/5 Maniac (2012) Stephen Lambrechts Maniac is that rare horror remake that completely outclasses its source in every sense. And when you consider how much we love the original, that's really saying something. EDIT
