Poster for The Absent One

The Absent One

7.0

2014, Suspense, Crime, Mystery

Even though the film relies comfortably on standard crime thriller conventions, it has enough conviction to make it compelling.

Blowfly Park

6.0

2014, Drama, Suspense

Has several well-executed features, but overall its premise is a little too slight to be thoroughly impactful...

Poster for Top Five

Top Five

8.0

2014, Drama, Comedy

The film’s main flaw would perhaps be its arguably clichéd ending, but the many humourous moments more than compensate...

Poster for Diplomacy

Diplomacy

8.0

2014, Drama

Refreshing for taking focus on a single incident and taking a more intimate approach to depicting WWII.

2015.03.23

Poster for American Sniper

American Sniper

6.0

2014, Action, War

Whilst featuring a gripping central performance and moments of anxious tension throughout, is not quite as complex or impactful as it sets out to be.

Poster for Carol

Carol

9.0

2015, Drama, Love

A compelling portrait of youth and experience, of repression and desire, and of two women hindered but not paralysed by the social taboos of their time.

2015.01.11

Poster for The Revenant

The Revenant

9.0

2015, Adventure, Drama, Western, Suspense

Darkly brooding and strikingly beautiful, and it succeeds as both a thrilling, revenge story and an ode to the wilderness.

2015.01.05

Poster for Die Hard

Die Hard

10

1988, Action, Suspense

An action-packed antidote to the seemingly endless stream of vanilla Christmas films...

2014.12.13

Poster for Son of a Gun

Son of a Gun

6.0

2014, Drama, Action, Suspense, Crime

The film ends up being a little underwhelming, and one is left with the impression that it could have been so much more.

Poster for Obvious Child

Obvious Child

2014, Comedy, Love

Slate is so effortlessly charismatic and relatable in her layered, textured performance that you can’t help but sympathize with her.

2014.10.02

Poster for The Maze Runner

The Maze Runner

5.0

2014, Action, Suspense, Science fiction, Mystery

Only a lingering feeling of dissatisfaction is left behind, one that does not look likely to be appeased by the film’s open ending and inevitable sequel.

It may not have the most engaging plot, but it is a slow, steady build that is pervaded with a harsh, fleeting beauty.

A highly accomplished film, and one that deserves to be seen.
