    It’s the most haunted and dreamlike of all American films, a gothic backwoods ramble with the Devil at its heels.

    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.
    • 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.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Tom Huddleston
    It’s one of the most insightful films ever made about the British class system.

    Pawlikowski’s film may be bleak and unforgiving, but it’s also richly sympathetic and deeply moving.
    • 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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    For all its humanistic warmth and undoubted charm, Short Term 12 just never quite rings true.
    • 82 Metascore

    The LEGO Movie is sheer joy: the script is witty, the satire surprisingly pointed and the animation tactile and imaginative.
    • 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.

    • 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
    A startling examination of how artistic principles translate into real-world actions, and a moving portrait of a genuinely, unexpectedly brave man.

    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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    The result is a film that starts with a bang and ends with a shrug, but keeps us entertained throughout.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    Overall this is giddy, ridiculous fun, a witty, wacky and wonderfully generous sugary gift of a film.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    There’s nothing wildly original here, but it’s carried off with charm and wit, and two very enjoyable central performances.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Tom Huddleston
    At once an investigation, a polemic and, in its final sequences, a tribute to human endurance. A remarkable film.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    As a procedural study, Night Moves is undeniably effective: The buildup is slow, painstaking and intense, the fallout inevitable but still shocking...But the soul is somehow missing.
    • 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.

    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    It’s disappointing when Starred Up begins to lapse into soapy cliché.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    The film’s blanket refusal to question its subject feels not only cowardly, but antithetical.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    It’s infuriatingly irresistible.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    There’s a lack of subtlety or surprise which serves the story poorly... That said, it’s a thoughtful, timely, often quietly captivating drama.
    • 71 Metascore

    22 Jump Street knows how to play to its strengths: Tatum’s performance here is even more puppy-dog lovable than last time, and his scenes with Hill possess a goofy, low-key warmth too often lacking in big-budget comedy.
