A melodrama following the love, marriage and collapse of a young couple.


  • Rated as: 3/5

The Beach Boys’ feelgood jukebox standard, ‘Help Me, Rhonda’ is played twice in ‘Take Shelter’ director Jeff Nichols’s third feature, amplifying the sense of sunkissed nostalgia present throughout this amiable but over-familiar coming-of-age story – it’s not set in the 1960s, but save a stray mobile phone or two, you could be forgiven for thinking it is. Drawing on a rich tradition of classical American storytelling that runs from Mark Twain to ‘Shane’ to ‘Stand By Me,’ Nichols adopts a 14-year-old boy’s perspective for this affecting tale of innocence lost and grace gained over one woozy Arkansas summer. After the terse, teasing ambiguities of ‘Shotgun Stories’ and ‘Take Shelter,’ however, it’s disappointing just how conventional the director’s latest is, its Hollywood sensibility building throughout the narrative to a ludicrous climactic shootout.Like onetime indie darling David Gordon Green (who has since graduated to less reputable mainstream fare) Nichols cut his teeth at the famed North Carolina School of the Arts, and the connection between the two men has never been clearer than in the seductive opening stretches of this film. The spirit of Green’s ‘All the Real Girls’ and, in particular, ‘Undertow’ hangs over scenes establishing the character of Ellis – played by the highly promising Tye Sheridan, whom you may recognise as one of the young brothers in ‘The Tree of Life’. An independent adolescent from a troubled home, he’s given to exploring the less populated stretc


Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde star as a brother and sister on the run after a robbing casino in this wintery thriller


The folks behind the 'Ice Age' series deliver another animated romp, this time with a strong eco-theme, as a teenage girl, voiced by Amanda Seyfried, is exploring the Amazon with her scientist father and finds herself caught up in an age-long battle between tiny forest fairies and their evil arch enemies.

The Fast and the Furious 6

Following a screaming return to form with the best-in-the-series 'Fast Five' in 2011, director Justin Lin and pretty much the entire cast return for this follow-up, picking up the story right after the events in the previous instalment.

The Great Gatsby

Tobey Maguire is playing Nick Carraway, a young man who moves to Long Island in 1922 and finds himself living next door to wealthy Jay Gatsby. Mulligan plays Daisy Buchanan, Nick’s cousin who rekindles a relationship with Gatsby despite being married to Tom.

The Hangover Part III

When 'The Hangover Part II' survived critical brickbats to become the smash hit comedy of 2011, another sequel was inevitable.

Pain & Gain

Time Out has not reviewed this film yet.

Postman Pat

One for the toddlers, a nice bit of old-school animated whimsy. Except that's not this movie. The (as yet unconfirmed) full title is rumoured to be 'Postman Pat: The Movie – You Know You're the One', and concerns Pat's attempts to get on a TV talent show.

Star Trek: Into Darkness

Expect more of what we got in the first one: square jaws, sharp dialogue, searing CGI, strong casting and plenty of sneaky references to the original series.

June 2013

All the while, he lived quietly with his wife and three children in suburban New Jersey, to all outside appearances an entirely ordinary family man.


  • Rated as: 5/5

Is there such a thing as a perfect film? One that knows what it wants to achieve and does it, flawlessly, artfully and intelligently? If so, then ‘Jaws’ is as good a candidate as any.

Man of Steel

A reboot of the Superman franchise from director Zack Snyder. Just as in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’, the writers have decided to go back to the beginning with an orgin tale: a child is sent to Earth from the dying planet Krypton.

Now You See Me

Derren Brown eat your heart out: the illusionists in this thriller stage bank heists during their performances and reward the audiences with the loot. But can they elude the FBI squad hot on their trail?


Ryan Reynolds plays a dead cop investigating his own murder in this paranormal crime comedy. He’s Nick Walker, a slain officer who joins the Rest in Peace department: basically ghost cops with unfinished business.

World War Z

Another tricky book-to-screen adaptation, as genre-defying director Marc Forster (‘Monster’s Ball’, ‘Finding Neverland’) tackles Max ‘son of Mel’ Brooks’s fine, journalistic account of a zombie uprising.
