    Eddie the Eagle 2016

    ★★★★★ Added

    It’ll be hard to find many films as brilliant, deftly paced, tonally perfect and hysterical as Eddie The Eagle, which easily ousts Cool Runnings as the quintessential Olympics movie.

  • Fantastic Four

    Fantastic Four 2015

    Added

    Fantastic Four has a great core cast who have nothing to grip onto, a script that doesn't give the audience any emotion or empathy, character, humour, drama or inventiveness in the world. The seriousness is destroyed by the inept dialogue and leaps in logic, and the sudden influx of humour at parts to not alienate the four quadrants is hammered in like a square peg in a triangular hole.

  • Trainwreck

    Trainwreck 2015

    ★★★★★ Added

    Simple but intricate, smart but broad, big but human, funny but serious, Trainwreck is phenomenal. And will no doubt be overlooked at awards season due to the fact that it is a comedy. It is so much more, but so much comedy at the same time. Everything and one thing. Amazing.

    Unwatchable.

  • Entourage

    Entourage 2015

    ★★★★ Added

    Entourage is very much a great film for the fans, harkening back to the days when the show found itself at its height of power and quality, the drama is there but never overwhelming the fun times to be had, and the importance of the group being together, rather than finding their independent paths, is significantly more entertaining.

    Quality Not Guaranteed

  • The Gambler

    The Gambler 2014

    ★★★ Added

    The acting is very much the golden goose here, Mark Wahlberg hits a stride akin to his career best, whilst John Goodman and Michael Kenneth Williams supply energetic, scene-stealing performances of their own. It doesn’t always click, but the times it does make up for the beats that are a little awkwardly handled.

    This is one of those films that will be looked fondly on for many years to come, the kind of film that earns cinematic cementing by being brilliant on every conceivable level. The definition of a must-see movie.

    Paddington 2014

    ★★★★★ Added

    Paddington is a sublime piece of work, a polite, kind, full-hearted comedy adventure starring an animated character who lives on the screen, and in our joyous, boundless imaginations. You couldn't ask for a better family experience this holiday.

    The Imitation Game 2014

    Added

    A fascinating individual worthy, certainly, of a great film to examine his life and outstanding achievements. The Weinsteins, writer Graham Moore and director Morten Tyldum do not see it that way, it turns out.

  • The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

    The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 2014

    ★★★★½ Added

    Mockingjay Part One has faults, but ultimately it is so well handled that come the satisfying end of the film you can't think of it purely in terms of a financial choice to split the book up. The story is balanced, cleverly building to the height of tension, crafting the characters and world perfectly, with a script full of ingenious touches and concepts, and Lawrence's direction is utterly sublime.

    Rosewater 2014

    ★★★★ Added

    An excellent debut that almost always succeeds at telling a brutal but whispered story without needing to bring in the big dogs to get messages and ideas across.
