Le Havre

A unmistakable Aki Kaurismäki vehicle that’s likeable, amusing and intriguing. Unfortunately, it doesn’t quite have the momentum to take it past ‘that was nice’ territory.

The Day the Earth Stood Still

A pointless remake that’s ruined by trying to bring it up to date. At least Keanu Reeves found his perfect role as a man with no personality.

Shadow Dancer

A nicely low-key take on an interesting point in the Northern Ireland situation that engages but doesn’t quite push the envelope when it should.


Intelligent, well-acted and just complex enough, Looper is the best time-travel movie since Back to the Future.

The Silent House

An ambitious Uruguayan horror with a climax that rivals ‘it was all a dream’ as the mother of all endings.

The Sweeney

More Hot Fuzz than credible cop thriller, The Sweeney is a long list of missed opportunities. If you desperately want to watch cops behaving badly, tune into the classic TV show on UK Gold instead.

The Possession

Just because a demon possessing a little girl is of a different religious denomination, it doesn’t mean it’s original. Exorcism, schmexorcism.

Cell 211

A gripping prison drama with a slew of twists from Spain that has it’s flaws but remains well worth a watch nonetheless.

The Expendables 2

More of the same harmless killing and mostly intentional humour from this geriatric band of mercenaries. Obviously not for everyone.

Keith Lemon: The Film

It doesn’t matter if you get Keith Lemon or not, this is still one of the worst films of 2012. Bring on the apocalypse.
