Birdman

  • Rated as: 5/5

‘Most of the successful people in Hollywood are failures as human beings.’ So said Marlon Brando. But what happens when their 15 minutes are up? It’s not like failure suddenly transforms former mega-celebs into humble human beings who can pick up their own coffee from Starbucks...

Hungry Hearts

  • Rated as: 3/5

Since playing Hannah’s boyfriend in ‘Girls’, Adam Driver has become cinema’s go-to guy for a hipster, goofy-sweet love interest. Possibly aware of the risks of being typecast, Driver reveals his serious side in this claustrophobic, psychological indie drama set in New York...

Annie

  • Rated as: 2/5

Updating the story from the Great Depression to the Great Recession, this new ‘Annie’ is a candied corporate fantasia. Annie (Quvenzhané Wallis) is now a plucky New York foster kid who, by chance, becomes the live-in ward of an antisocial billionaire (Jamie Foxx, terrific as mayoral candidate Will Stacks)...

Project Almanac

  • Rated as: 2/5

A bunch of suburban American teens discover a time-travel device stashed in a basement and get up to mildly naughty shenanigans; you’ll wish you could time travel too, to a moment when jiggle-cam cinematography (‘shot’ by the characters themselves) felt fresh. David (Jonny Weston) is a nerd who can’t speak to girls...

American Sniper

  • Rated as: 4/5

Only a filmmaker like Clint Eastwood – conservative, patriotic but alive and sensitive to human tragedy – could make a movie about an Iraq War veteran and fill it with doubts, mission anxiety and personal tragedy. ‘American Sniper’ is a superbly subtle critique made by an especially young 84-year-old... 

Kingsman: The Secret Service

  • Rated as: 3/5

Pastiching James Bond is hardly a new idea (see Woody Allen in the 1967 ‘Casino Royale’, not to mention the entire ‘Austin Powers’ franchise), but that hasn’t stopped writer-director Matthew Vaughn from trying his hand at a little counter-espionage with this full-throttle action comedy... 

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

  • Rated as: 4/5

Don’t call this tale of the misadventures of a high-pitched sponge and his random pals living in the undersea village of Bikini Bottom 'kids’ stuff'. Nickelodeon’s TV sensation has always been a home for surreal stoner humour, inappropriate innuendos...

Big Hero 6

  • Rated as: 3/5

For the past few years, Disney has been reinventing its style along two lines: the conscientious princess play of ‘Tangled’ and ‘Frozen’ alongside the more modern sensibility of movies like ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ and now this one. ‘Big Hero 6’ has been adapted from an obscure Marvel comic, telling the story of Hiro (Ryan Potter), a teen robotics genius...
