    Hunt for the Wilderpeople


    With consistently likeable characters and endless heart Taika Waititi serves up such a joyous adventure. Superb score too.

    A Monster Calls


    I wanted to be swept away by the emotional core in this fable, but it just felt extremely manipulative.

    That said, kudos to its breathtakingly rendered watecoloured animation.

    The Dark Knight Rises


    Whilst it faced near-on impossible odds, and didn't live up to the heavenly heights of 'The Dark Knight' (for me this is Nolan's Pièce de résistance), Christopher Nolan, does weave his visionary masterclass of filmmaking and storytelling to bring his near perfect Batman trilogy to an epically satisfying and engrossing conclusion - with this unpredictable, twisting and brooding biblical brute of a touching drama-spectacle. It's also solidly acted throughout from its ensemble.

  • Foxcatcher



    Aided by a taut script, Bennett Miller has pulled out the bag here a flawlessly directed and utterly compelling psychological tale of class, obsession and power. It slow-burns and makes your skin-crawl with a quiet intensity. Messrs Carrell, Tatum and Ruffalo mesmerize.

    Expect Oscars nods, come February 22nd.
