    A heartfelt, wry and decidedly spry film.

    Visually, this is an exquisitely composed film, and it teems with curiosities and compassion. If on occasion the story seems to wander, it arrives at an enchanting destination.

    Ghoulish, tense and utterly fantastical, John Carpenter's tale of shipwrecked spectres squelching their way through a fluorescent fog to wreak vengeance on a seaside town is a classic campfire yarn.

    With its breathtaking landscapes, bloody battles, bitter betrayals and an aching love story, Mongol is a sumptuously crafted epic.

    By far the best Twilight film to date, Slade should satisfy the fan base while opening up the series to more sceptical viewers…

    Though inspired by real-life journals, Guerra’s haunting and beautifully shot film transports us into the realm of the mystical and surreal.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Will Lawrence
    Ford’s artfully composed and emotionally clever noir is well-paced and, in stark contrast to the naked flesh that opens the film, never, ever sags.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Will Lawrence
    An insightful and, on occasion, laugh-out-loud piece of filmmaking. Artfully shot and structured, while its warmth and wit shine as brightly as the Californian sun.

    A triumph for Scorsese and a document for the band, Shine A Light is a five-star experience for Stones fans. For those less enamoured with the ageing rockers, it goes a long way to explaining their longevity.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 80 Will Lawrence
    A compelling and moving interpretation of a largely forgotten moment in European history.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Will Lawrence
    A highly engaging documentary that recounts a remarkable tale. Young Marla is clearly talented, but so too is her father…
    • 56 Metascore

    A sometimes girlie swirl of obsession that will delight fans, this faithful adaptation is after teenage blood, and will most likely hit a box office artery.
    • 68 Metascore

    While less beguiling than "Capote," Infamous remains a soulful and searching portrayal of the writer, carried with immense charm and vivacity by its leading man.

    Offering plenty of body and a lot of lift, Hairspray gels kitsch styling with show-stopping tunes to mould a memorable musical.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Will Lawrence
    There are familiar moments in Vera Brittain’s stirring story, though the Kent's craft and Vikander’s exquisite talent will ensure that the author’s memories live in the minds of a fresh generation...

    It is a noble aim, and Reynolds drenches his movie in earthy, muddy tones.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Will Lawrence
    A rather titillating take on a racy historical novel, this is perhaps too ambitious in intent. More time, or more pruning (perhaps they should just have focused on The Boleyn girl), would have produced a richer and more enjoyable film.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Will Lawrence
    A documentary that preaches to the converted if ever there was one, but Dunn's enthusiasm for the subject and the range of pretension and humour of his interviewees makes for fun viewing.
    • 65 Metascore

    Familiar formula yet Morgan Matthews’ feature debut adds up to a satisfying whole.

    Visually stunning, thoroughly belligerent and as shallow as a pygmy’s paddling pool, this is a whole heap of style tinged with just a smidgen of substance.
    • 45 Metascore

    Over-indulgent and melodramatic, as is the nature of artistic mythmaking, The Golden Age will beguile and repel in equal measure. The performances are supreme, although some viewers may struggle to reconcile the director’s epic intentions.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Will Lawrence
    Despite strong performances from the leads, when it comes to pacing and power, it’s the Danish original that edges it. Still, a sturdy and affecting remake that brings a powerful story to an even wider audience.
    • 60 Metascore

    Warm and heartfelt performances from the two principals are undercut by a formula that too readily reveals the outcome. Interesting workings fail to fully add up. Must do better next term.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 40 Will Lawrence
    Decent ingredients but, as a whole, this is lacking in choreographic flair and plot substance.
    • 34 Metascore

    A disappointingly slight offering from a filmmaker that we know is capable of so much more. Shyamalan says that The Happening was his easiest film to shoot. Sadly, it shows.

    Well-acted by the superb ensemble cast but there just isn't a likeable character amongst them to care about.
