Man of Steel (2013)
Chaotic and unfocused.
Posted Jun 21, 2013
Behind the Candelabra (2013)
A tremendous achievement for all involved.
Posted May 31, 2013
The Great Gatsby (2013)
Less is not more, more is more. Luhrmann's Great Gatsby embraces this notion as a reflection of its central character, and in this sense at least it is near-on perfect.
Posted May 23, 2013
Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
Manages to appease lifelong Star Trek fans without alienating newcomers.
Posted May 8, 2013
Iron Man 3 (2013)
The perfect superhero movie.
Posted Apr 23, 2013
Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)
As patchy as a patchwork quilt, but equally pleasing to look at.
Posted Mar 3, 2013
The biggest compliment we can pay Joanna Johnston's costumes in Lincoln is that you hardly notice them. This is a far subtler film than you might expect.
Posted Jan 31, 2013
Django Unchained (2012)
A cruel but humorous tale of robust men and women defined by the myth of the 'Old West'.
Posted Dec 27, 2012
Les Misérables (2012)
Earnest enough to verge on parody, but so sumptuous most audiences won't care a jot.
Posted Dec 19, 2012
Skyfall could be the most enjoyable Bond yet. One thing's for certain; Bond has never scrubbed up better. Tom Ford now exists to make Daniel Craig suits.
Posted Oct 15, 2012
For Vreeland reality was merely the starting point on a far more delicious journey, the best of which is captured here in this excellent documentary.
Posted Sep 20, 2012
A mishmash of futuristic conventions and clichés cobbled together as something we have never quite seen before.
Posted Sep 13, 2012
The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
Exciting, audacious and thematically rich; Christopher Nolan refuses to play safe.
Posted Jul 20, 2012
An immaculate journey into weird.
Posted Jun 28, 2012
Moonrise Kingdom (2012)
Wes Anderson's most sartorially significant film yet.
Posted May 28, 2012
Marvel's The Avengers (2012)
A witty, well-acted sci-fi adventure.
Posted Apr 19, 2012
The Hunger Games (2012)
The film is aided immeasurably by Judianna Makovsky's costume design. Clothes are an intentional method of deciphering The Hunger Games' politics.
Posted Mar 26, 2012
The Woman in Black (2012)
Proof that frock coats and lace dresses really are terrifying.
Posted Feb 9, 2012
War Horse (2011)
Children and the elderly will love it.
Posted Jan 15, 2012
A monument to wonder and excitement for all those still in knee socks or short trousers.
Posted Dec 22, 2011
Enjoyably daft fare with enough sci-fi tech and desirable clobber to keep you cooing until the credits.
Posted Dec 15, 2011
The Artist (2011)
If there is a more joyous film this year, we haven't seen it.
Posted Nov 24, 2011
Gosling speaks through movement: his walk is gliding, his profile aquiline, and his dress sense is pimped up. In short, he pretty much is a car.
Posted Oct 22, 2011
Melancholia is a heartbreakingly beautiful experience, one to selfishly guard and treasure.
Posted Oct 20, 2011
Jane Eyre (2011)
A chaste, yet inescapably sexy love story told with depth and passion.
Posted Sep 8, 2011
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011)
A classy, very British affair.
Posted Sep 5, 2011
The best popcorn of the summer.
Posted Aug 14, 2011
Taps into the idea that deep down we all want to dress up and play hero.
Posted Jul 24, 2011
Norwegian Wood (2012)
Beautiful and affecting, even if it does collapse under the weight of its own earnestness at times.
Posted May 26, 2011
This saturated saga is dead in the water.
Posted May 16, 2011
Water for Elephants (2011)
Old fashioned and sentimental, Water for Elephants still has much to offer with its very readable costume design.
Posted May 9, 2011
Rabbit Hole (2010)
While it may be uncomfortable to watch, Rabbit Hole is nonetheless essential viewing.
Posted Feb 3, 2011
The King's Speech (2010)
A tender contemplation on duty and the crippling weight of expectancy.
Posted Jan 18, 2011
Tron Legacy (2010)
There are flourishes of brilliance, particularly in score, costumes and set design. However, this brilliance is often buried beneath messy, disjointed action sequences and a story that fails to make any sense at all.
Posted Dec 5, 2010
A deftly clever commentary on the nature of identity and how it defines our role in society.
Posted Nov 18, 2010
Beyond Biba (2009)
One woman's extraordinary influence on popular culture.
Posted Nov 11, 2010
Dolores Claiborne (1995)
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
Tarantino, without the extraneous dialogue.
Posted Aug 23, 2010
Knight & Day (2010)
Once you cotton onto the fact that you're watching 'Carry on Bourne', you might even enjoy it.
Posted Aug 4, 2010
Toy Story 3 (2010)
The best film Pixar have ever made.
Posted Jul 22, 2010
Roll with the journey and trust that it will take you where you want to go.
Posted Jul 12, 2010
Falls short of The Curse of the Black Pearl in perhaps every way but costume.
Posted May 13, 2010
Hot Tub Time Machine (2010)
Eighties nostalgia has never been so disgusting, or funny.
Posted May 10, 2010
Hit-Girl owns this film like she would own your ass if you ever stepped to her.
Posted Mar 12, 2010
Ambitious but not overreaching, Avatar is a stunning piece of blue heaven.
Posted Feb 9, 2010
Unbelievably dumb and sentimental movie.
Posted Jan 18, 2010
Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)
An undeniably romantic tale of damaged goods finding love.
Posted Dec 8, 2009
The Road (2009)
Hillcoat took it as far as he dared and created a beautiful suffering; a film that somehow manages to be both unwatchable and unmissable at the same time.
Posted Nov 19, 2009
Saturn 3 (1980)
Saturn 3 remains a mere gender curio of the era. It's too rotten to be anything else.
