  • The Imitation Game

    The Imitation Game 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 20 May, 2015

    "The sharply written screenplay from Graham Moore continuously transforms history into both a taut espionage-fuelled thriller and a heartfelt period drama... There's not a single weak link amongst the cast... This is Cumberbatch's film from his opening voiceover onwards, however, with the actor delivering yet another dependably excellent turn in a regularly demanding role".

    Mr. Turner 2014

    ★★★ Watched 12 May, 2015

    "Mr. Turner is held together by beautiful cinematography and performances by a talented cast helmed by an excellent Spall; but Leigh's film is also unfortunately a long-winded chore, regularly making it a considerable challenge to appreciate its positives".

    The Dark Knight Rises 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 09 Aug, 2012

    The weakest of Nolan's Batman films, but not by much. Strong performances and breathtaking action sequences, coupled with emotional and thematic threads satisfyingly tied up; this is a great conclusion to a superb trilogy. Full review here
