    Shoplifters

    ★★★★★

    A hugely rewarding and heartwarming film about a dysfunctional family with dark secrets.
    Watching the united family go about daily life is just magical to watch and it's uplifting to see the strong bond between them, but you know it's borrowed time as the family struggle to survive day to day without resorting to stealing from local shops.
    Hirokazu Kore-eda is a superb director who's able to make inspiring tales that make you feel good, but can change tone and…

  • Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

    ★★★★½

    When it was announced that Planet of the Apes was going to be rebooted as a prequel many were dubious and instantly appalled by the idea, but when Rise of the Planet of the Apes was released directed by Rupert Wyatt it got universal praise, it's a prequel that got most things right, it had great drama, action and brought back to life a franchise that had run out of steam.

  • Two-Lane Blacktop

    Two-Lane Blacktop

    ★★★★½

    Two-Lane Blacktop is a superb existential road movie that's as directionless as the road we take in life, it's a beautifully shot film about the counterculture of the 70s, and the search for meaning and purpose in a time of restless uncertainty.

    X-Men: Days of Future Past

    ★★★★½

    Brian Singer has returned to the X-Men franchise and brought back with him the wit and charm of X-Men and X2. The brilliance of 'Days of Future Past' is that we're reintroduced to the classic X-Men series with Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen returning to their much loved roles as Professor X and Magneto. Events in the future set of a chain of events which will lead to Wolverine's (Hugh Jackman) consciousness being sent back into his past self in…

  • The Wolf of Wall Street

    The Wolf of Wall Street

    The Wolf of Wall Street is a great return to form for Scorsese, over the course of the three hour run time we're completely immersed into the world of Wall Street finance, but due to the fantastic script by Terrence Winter it never drags, the central performance by Leonardo DiCaprio as Jordan Belfort is stunning; he goes from an eager hotshot to a man driven to the edge by his excessive lifestyle.
    Scorsese directs the film with a passion and…
