    • 99 Metascore
    • 100 Tom Huddleston
    It’s the most haunted and dreamlike of all American films, a gothic backwoods ramble with the Devil at its heels.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Tom Huddleston
    At once an investigation, a polemic and, in its final sequences, a tribute to human endurance. A remarkable film.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 100 Tom Huddleston
    This is quite simply one of the saddest movies ever made, a tale of loss, grief and absolute loneliness, an unflinching stare into the darkest moral abyss.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 100 Tom Huddleston
    What 12 Years a Slave is really interested in is creating an honest, believable experience: in culture and context, place and people, soil and skin. The result can, at times, be alienating.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Tom Huddleston
    It’s one of the most insightful films ever made about the British class system.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    Role Models isn’t trying to reinvent the wheel, just polish it up a little. What emerges is a memorable slice of modern slapstick, with charm to spare and just a touch of soul.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    It’s infuriatingly irresistible.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    This isn’t just the best-looking film of the year, it’s one of the most awe-inspiring achievements in the history of special-effects cinema. So it’s a shame that – as is so often the case with groundbreaking effects movies – the emotional content can’t quite match up to the visual.

    The LEGO Movie is sheer joy: the script is witty, the satire surprisingly pointed and the animation tactile and imaginative.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    It may lack its predecessor’s lofty ambitions, but once the bullets, spears and hairy fists start flying you’ll be too wrapped up to care.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    Overall this is giddy, ridiculous fun, a witty, wacky and wonderfully generous sugary gift of a film.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    This is a tighter, smarter film than either Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz, and buried beneath all the blue-goo aliens and terrible punning is a heartfelt meditation on the perils and pleasures of nostalgia.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    An enormously satisfying film: carefully observed and consistently compelling, it feels like an instant American classic, if a minor one.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    Scorsese never digs too deeply under the skin of these reprehensible playboy douchebags, and there are times where the swooping photography, smash-and-grab editing and toe-tapping soundtrack conspire to almost – almost – make us like them. But when the film’s cylinders are firing, it’s impossible not to be dragged along.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    With gorgeously crisp photography and pitch-perfect performances from the two leads, this is one of the most intriguing and thoughtful American films of the year.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    Low key and occasionally frustrating it may be, but Computer Chess is a supremely intelligent, beautifully constructed film, interweaving comedy and character, satire and subtext, and loaded with more ideas than some filmmakers manage in a lifetime.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    Abrahamson has pulled off something quietly remarkable: a study of morality which never feels like a treatise, a bracingly realistic film about teenagers which never becomes patronising and a gripping melodrama which swerves sentiment. He may also have unearthed a genuine star.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    Berberian Sound Studio is like nothing before – and whether or not it ‘works’ seems almost irrelevant. In this era of cookie-cutter cinema, Strickland’s deeply personal moral and stylistic vision deserves the highest praise.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    This is a film built on sensation, misdirection and randomness. The result can be maddeningly obtuse, but it’s also breathtakingly lovely and genuinely unsettling.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    The result is entertaining and insightful, balancing cold statistics with real-life stories of success and tragedy, presenting a broad, clear-eyed view of an increasingly complex issue.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    We Are the Best! is a joyous celebration of youth, friendship and rebellion, and if there’s a nagging note of regret and bitterness it never manages to undermine the overwhelmingly compassionate tone.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    This is a woman who has been through hell and come out kicking, and the result is as much a celebration of her life as it is a documentary.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    Any film that teams up gruffer-than-thou icons Shepard and Johnson is bound to go heavy on the testosterone, but Mickle undercuts all this strident manliness with a rich vein of self-mocking wit and paternal angst.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    A startling examination of how artistic principles translate into real-world actions, and a moving portrait of a genuinely, unexpectedly brave man.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    Ida
    Pawlikowski’s film may be bleak and unforgiving, but it’s also richly sympathetic and deeply moving.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    It’s undeniably entertaining – and worth seeing for Kingsley alone – with the misfires never fully overshadowing the moments of glory.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    This is a messy, poorly structured film, riddled with plot holes and lacking any kind of satisfying conclusion.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    If Del Toro is pitching for an audience of 12-year-old boys (and we do mean boys: this is old-school macho), he’s done a bang-up job. Still, there are times when Pacific Rim could be the work of any jobbing Hollywood director – the warmth and idiosyncracy that characterises Del Toro’s finest work, from Pan’s Labyrinth to Hellboy 2, is absent.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    This is a deeply silly, extremely noisy and sometimes impenetrable action movie that’s drowning in CGI, wild overacting and mullets. And it’s enormously entertaining.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    An overlong, at times almost plot-free soap opera that introduces a wealth of characters and dips into a wide variety of subplots but never comes together as a story.
