Cinema

  • The November Man

    A standard by-the-numbers spy thriller riding squarely on the broad shoulders of Pierce Brosnan

  • The Expendables 3

    If it's a half-decent action movie you're beseeching... Here's one, it’s 'half' decent.

  • Into the Storm

    Chock full of special effects but sadly bereft of originality

  • Get On Up

    Boseman, who was so good last year as Jackie Robinson in the film “42” is a revelation here

  • These Final Hours

    It’ll drain you until every ounce of emotionally-stirred liquid has thawed from within, and by golly, you’ll feel all the more better for it...

  • Hercules

    Will no doubt please its core demographic of teenage boys

  • Lucy

    “Lucy” is one of those great “what if” films you occasionally stumble across that has you thinking long after it’s ended

  • Guardians of the Galaxy

    “Guardians of the Galaxy” is a happy meal with a FREE upsize.

  • Deliver Us From Evil

    Eric Bana adds “horror film” to his resume and comes out smiling.

  • Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

    Visually the film is outstanding. The apes and their world are rendered well as is the inner workings of what is left of the...

  • Tammy

    A dramadey that actually works best during its most serious moments

  • Life Itself

    Aptly details the live-out-loud personality of the late Roger Ebert

  • The Last Sentence

    Opens on June 20 in New York at the Lincoln Plaza and in Los Angeles at the Laemmele’s Royal Theatre (West Los Angeles)

  • Transformers : Age of Extinction

    It’s more of the same – and for the fans, that’s likely all they want. Right, tiger?

  • 22 Jump Street

    I’m giving the film and extra half-star just for the credits sequence

  • Trust Me

    Gives you the feeling a lot of the negotiation, back-stabbing and veiled threat is taken straight from the corridors of power.

  • Edge of Tomorrow

    Not only moves at a nice pace down the tarmac but shoots for the sky for most of its swift 113 minutes

  • Maleficent

    Add to those great performances some stunning visual effects and you’ve now got proof to the old adage that you CAN teach an older dog...

  • X-Men : Days of Future Past

    Proves to be worth the creased-cushioned wait, delivering more satisfyingly than a fast-footed Hooters waitress

  • Chef

    It’s a feel good film that takes you on the journey (literally a road trip of America) to show you the wonder of food mixing...

  • Healing

    A powerful story of redemption…that runs about half an hour too long

  • Godzilla

    Manages to strike an accurate balance of the serious and silly

  • Only Lovers Left Alive

    I cannot recommend this film enough, but I would strongly recommend it for those who like to be challenged by films

  • The Double

    Richard Ayoade is evolving as a filmmaker faster than any in recent memory

  • The Other Woman

    With her performance in “The Other Woman,” Leslie Mann becomes a star.
