Movie Reviews

It's refreshing and life-affirming to experience a film with such a warm and generous heart

The Grand Seduction

Brendan Gleeson is in great form in this warm and life-affirming tale about a struggling, remote fishing village in Newfoundland.

  • Jenny Slate plays a stand-up comedian who faces a big decision

    Obvious Child

    Obvious Child won the Best International Feature award at this year's Galway Film Fleadh. It features a strong performance from Jenny Slate as a young woman trying to deal with an unplanned pregnancy.

  • JB turns two sheltered Indian teens' lives around by bringing them to LA

    Million Dollar Arm

    Based on a true story, this Disney sports film is heart-warming and positive with plenty of witty moments throughout.

  • A found footage frightener

    As Above, So Below

    City of Infernal Night.

  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Sin City 2
  • Scarlett Johansson as Lucy


    Could be superb but gets a bit loopy.

  • No, your eyes are not deceiving you - that tornado is, in fact, on fire

    Into The Storm

    It's been 18 years since Twister was released and we're going back into the eye of the tornado with Into The Storm. But unfortunately there aren't enough flying cows and fire tornadoes in the world to make this a must-watch.

  • Édgar Ramírez and Eric Bana star as the exorcising priest and haunted cop in Deliver Us from Evil

    Deliver Us from Evil

    New York cops get more than they bargained for in this entertaining horror yarn.

  • What if transcends the often soopy rom-com genre with sharp dialogue

    What If

    What If manages to transcend the often soppy rom-com genre with a very likeable male lead in Daniel Radcliffe, and reams of snappy dialogue.

  • The cast list here is more elaborate than the plot

    The Expendables 3

    The quote of 2014 has been found.

  • The acting is excellent

    The Rover

    One man and his car.

  • Simon Pegg as Hector and Toni Collette as his girlfriend Clara who encourages him to travel the world in search of the meaning of happiness

    Hector and The Search for Happiness

    Hector and The Search for Happiness runs out of steam early on, with its cartoon-like adventures in foreign locations. File under 'mildly amusing'.

  • Home and wahey!

    The Inbetweeners 2

    The boys go Down Under for a retread of the first Inbetweeners movie. It's middling.

  • Sharing a drink by a coffin in God's Pocket. The late Philip Seymour Hoffman as Scarpato and Eddie Marsan as Smilin' Jack Moran, the fiery undertaker.

    God's Pocket

    Having won the audience over with a smart, gritty realist beginning, first time director John Slattery (Mad Men's Roger Sterling) loses initial impact in a comedy that's kind of grey rather than black.

  • Has just enough heart to warrant a trip before little ones go back to school

    Planes: Fire & Rescue

    The follow-up to last summer's Planes aims higher than its predecessor with a deeper story for kids about second chances and the value of heroes.
