Need for Speed

  • Rated as: 2/5

‘Breaking Bad’ fans will tell you that Aaron Paul is a talented actor, but it’s hard to believe watching this car-racing actioner inspired by the ‘Need for Speed’ video games. He looks visibly uncomfortable playing street car racer Tobey Marshall, who foolishly does business...

Computer Chess

  • Rated as: 4/5

It’s fascinating to watch the original mumblecore gang graduating one-by-one into the wider filmmaking community: some (Greta Gerwig, the Duplass Brothers) have headed to Hollywood, others (Joe Swanberg) to the indie-genre-flick ghetto. Only Andrew Bujalski...

Rio 2

  • Rated as: 3/5

Carlos Saldanha is all heart. From the ‘Ice Age’ series, which the Brazilian co-directed, through to his new ‘Rio’ franchise, every movie he makes is stuffed with warmth, charm and simple but effective lessons about family, responsibility and friendship. Sure, they can tip over into...

Noah

  • Rated as: 2/5

'Black Swan' and 'Requiem for a Dream' director Darren Aronofsky’s big-ticket retelling of the Old Testament story, with an oh-so-serious Russell Crowe playing Noah, is stupid but train-wreck fascinating. Your jaw will drop early and often – right from the opening dream...

Divergent

  • Rated as: 2/5

Rest easy, Katniss: you win this round. ‘Divergent’ is the first film to be adapted from Veronica Roth’s dystopian young-adult book series and it arrives with a sludgy, grey-hued plop. It doesn’t help that Roth’s stories make ‘The Hunger Games’ look like George Orwell...

Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy

  • Rated as: 3/5

Goody two-wings Tinker Bell (who’s had a personality transplant since JM Barrie wrote her as a sneaky little minx in ‘Peter Pan’) is back for another Disney cartoon adventure. This time around ‘Mad Men’ star Christina Hendricks is the voice of...

Nebraska

  • Rated as: 4/5

Alexander Payne is the compassionate, thinking face of American comedy. With films like 'Sideways' and 'The Descendants', he tells laidback tales of people facing problems or changes in their lives. His new film 'Nebraska' is shot in black and white and takes the name of...

Enough Said

  • Rated as: 4/5

Nicole Holofcener has a reputation for making Woody Allen-ish chick-flicks. Which sounds like a snidey compliment. ‘Enough Said’ is her best yet – it’s what we wanted from the new ‘Bridget Jones’ book, a smart comedy about dating in your 50s...
