Berg reboots his career as a director (see Hancock and Battleship) with this harsh tale of war.
The Robocop remake is frustratingly mediocre. It’s not a complete disaster but rather an ample catastrophe.
The success of Dallas Buyers Club rests on McConaughey’s gaunt shoulders, and he completely disappears into this character.
Reitman only denies us a passionate kiss in the rain so Labor Day narrowly misses out on going ‘full Sparks’.
If Billy Elliot was about a passion nurtured from a young age, Cuban Fury is what happens when that unlikely passion for movement is lost, and found. It’s as sweet and charming as its cast.
With any film of an obvert and bleak sexual nature there’s a risk that the sex scenes will overpower the rest of the film for the audience due to the graphic content presented. If one is willing to look past this there does an incredibly beautiful film that exists in the space in-between.
So often the story of a revolution is confined to history books or fragmented across news coverage. The Square is an opportunity to see an upheaval in real-time. Director Jehane Noujaim pieces together an incredible…
It’s also one of the most ‘Italian’ films I’ve ever seen; passionate, satirical, and sumptuous.
The Book Thief fails to weave the intimate magic on the page into a moving screen story. Instead of being warmed around this campfire you feel distant and cold; emotionally mute.

Amongst Scorsese’s swirling choreography and furiously kinetic energy, at the core of it all is DiCaprio – a king presiding over the world he has built for himself.
There just aren’t enough rooftops to shout my love for this film.
Although Scorsese overindulges as much as his subject, in the cinematic jungle The Wolf of Wall Street proves he’s still the king.
What has interested me the most about the latest film from the great writer/director duo Joel and Ethan Coen is their unique focus on such a genuine character and his bizarre series of misadventures.
Lone Survivor is writer/director Peter Berg’s best to date…
It’s becoming hard to pick McConaughey’s best performance because he outdoes himself with each new film and Dallas Buyers Club cements him as one of the greatest actors of his generation.
Anchorman 2 is louder, sillier and vastly more absurd than its now cult predecessor, but it’s also longer, so when those less successful sequences miss the mark it feels like there are yawning chasms between laughs instead of beats.
According to Saving Mr Banks the making of Mary Poppins was a healing experience for Travers and Walt Disney is practically Sigmund Freud. Of course, this is the giant spoon of sugar to help the bitter aspects of the story go down.
