Food, Inc. (2009)
Holy Water (2010)
Astro Boy (AstroBoy) (2009)
Youth in Revolt (2010)
Malice in Wonderland (2010)
"Despite a certain visual flair, Malice in Wonderland just isn't very good. The screenplay is the main problem - it's just too flat and unimaginative to justify the larger-than- life cartoon characters that populate the movie."
The Island (2007)
Oil City Confidential (2009)
"Julien Temple's rockumentary Oil City Confidential looks like a series of Martin Parr photographs of the British by the seaside, and then segues into thrashing guitars on the Seventies New York stage."
The Princess and the Frog (2009)
Late Autumn (Akibiyori) (1973)
Edge of Darkness (2010)
Ddongpari (Breathless) (2009)
"One of the most relentlessly abusive movies you will ever see - the dialogue is a non-stop torrent of profanity, and the action consists of one brutal beating after another. Yet it cries out to be seen."
"The most positive thing you can say about Atom Egoyan's latest film is that it is well-intentioned. But the most honest thing that you can say is that it's a painfully misguided and pretentious folly."
Ninja Assassin (2009)
Burlesque Undressed (2010)
Toy Story 2 (1999)
"A host of charismatic character actors, including Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne and Matt Dillon, slum it about amiably in Armoured, a B-movie action thriller, before it all implodes in the final unbelievable act."
The Boys Are Back (2009)
A Prophet (Un prophete) (2010)
Up in the Air (2009)
The Book of Eli (2010)
All About Steve (2009)
44 Inch Chest (2010)
It Might Get Loud (2009)
Fireball (Muay Thai Dunk) (2009)
"Fireball is a preposterously idiotic Thai movie about an illegal underground blood sport that mixes martial arts and, er, basketball to produce four incredibly long, and hugely tedious, fight sequences."
It's Complicated (2009)
Mugabe and the White African (2010)
Treeless Mountain (2009)
Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll (2010)
"There are no allusions to the empowering nature of punk that catalyses the tale; and strangest of all, there's not enough made of the funny, funky music that made him filmworthy in the first place. The result, too often, rings like a missed beat."
The Road (2009)
"A Trojan-horse blockbuster that promises the wham bam of apocalypse while actually delivering the quiet pain of human intimacy, The Road might just be one of the most heartfelt end-of-the-world movies yet made."
Post Grad (2009)
"The ghosts of Shampoo, American Gigolo and even Alfie (both versions) cruelly haunt the ripe and raunchy frames of Mackenzie's Spread - another "shallow-stud-in-need-of-redemption" movie that pales in the face of its predecessors."
Sherlock Holmes (2009)
Nowhere Boy (2010)
"The Squeakquel is painfully high-pitched. It reaches frequencies that could make bats plummet from the sky, clutching at their little ears in agony. It's as if a mosquito equipped with a power tool is attempting to drill its way through your eardrum."
