Muted and passionless, which is a shame given how suited Effie's story would be to vivid melodrama. The restraint shown by the cast may have worked on paper considering the Victorian setting, but on screen the lack of a defining dramatic moment is painfully obvious.
Frightening and committed horror debut. The Babadook is destined to become a classic; a devastating and beautifully acted film that uses horror to explore how loss can affect the family, rather than just acting as a vehicle for cheap scares.
Leagues better than the first entry in the Captain America franchise, Winter Soldier is genuinely both funny and complex, bringing a depth of character and motive absent from many other Marvel outings.
All just a bit silly. The 'satire' could hardly be more heavy-handed, and while movies of this type often rely on believable characters to anchor their outlandish premises Robocop has a cast of dubious stereotypes and blank canvases.
