  • Mad in the Wild West

    OUT NOW! There is nothing lethargic or constricting about SLOW WEST. Fassbender delivers a solid performance, but it is the careful structuring of the narrative and the brilliant cinematography which make this a thrilling example of a Western. more »

  • Dreaming of Delevingne

    OUT NOW! PAPER TOWNS brings Cara Delevingne's iconic eyebrows to the screen once more, this time as the alluring girl-next-door, Margot. However, she may be the best part of an otherwise flat script. more »

  • Double date

    OUT NOW! WHILE WE'RE YOUNG is the new film from Noah Baumbach about a couple experiencing premature middle-agedness. More than a comedy, the film explores real themes such as generational gaps and the relationship between documentary and fiction. more »

  • Blind dates and heartbreaks

    OUT NOW! MAN UP aims to be another awkward but loveable, classic British romcom, but perhaps doesn't quite jump off the comedy springboard. more »

  • He's back...

    OUT NOW! TERMINATOR GENISYS brings Arnie back to party like it's 1984, but time-travel only leaves us confused and disorientated. more »

  • Shock of ages

    OUT NOW! In THE AGE OF ADALINE, the beautiful costumes worn by the even more beautiful Blake Lively throughout the film does not compensate for an unimaginative script. more »

  • Worst STD ever

    OUT NOW! IT FOLLOWS offers suspense of the hair-whitening sort with a unique story, great score and lean composition. more »
