300: Rise Of An Empire
Pecs flex, torsos ripple and bearded men growl but it's a woman scorned who spills the most blood in Noam Munro's turgid sequel (of sorts) to the 2007 swords and sandals epic. Based on Frank Miller's graphic novel Xerxes, 300: Rise Of An Empire unfolds before, during and after the fierce more...
Escape From Planet Earth
Jealousy, fear and the menace of Simon Cowell test the bonds of fraternal love in Cal Brunker's uninspired computer-animated adventure. Establishing a brisk tone from its opening sequence, Escape From Planet Earth charts a predictable course from conflict to reconciliation as feuding alien siblings put their differences aside to overcome the more...
Grand Budapest Hotel
When Wes Anderson is good, he's very good - dare I say it, brilliant - and when he's occasionally off-key, the Texan writer-director still puts other filmmakers in the shade. The Grand Budapest Hotel is a tour-de-force of invention and creativity that leaves no narrative stone unturned in its quest for more...
US Federal Air Marshal Bill Marks (Liam Neeson) boards a busy international flight from New York to London. As the aircraft reaches cruising altitude, Marks receives a series of bizarre and threatening text messages demanding that the airline transfers a ransom of 150 million dollars into an off-shore account. Failure to more...
These are golden times for stand-up comedian Kevin Hart. His 2011 tour, Laugh At My Pain, and subsequent TV special Let Me Explain were hugely popular and a 30-minute pilot television based around Hart's high-energy act is in production. He also currently has two films raking in the dollars at the more...
Book Thief, The
Death haunts every frame of Brian Percival's wartime drama. The Grim Reaper (voiced by Roger Allam) is the mellifluous narrator of this beautifully crafted story of courage and determination during the Second World War, based on the international bestseller of the same name by Markus Zusak. Unseen until the final frames, more...
Invisible Woman, The
In Greek mythology, the Muses were nine goddesses, who embodied the source of knowledge and the arts. These heavenly creatures inspired great poetry and literature, and were summoned by Chaucer, Homer, Milton, Shakespeare and Virgil in their texts. In modern times, a muse has been a collaborator, usually a woman, whose more...
The highest grossing Russian film of all time replays one of the bloodiest chapters of the Second World War through the eyes of German and Soviet soldiers involved in the stand-off. Stalingrad is the first project of its kind shot using IMAX 3D technology and Fedor Bondarchuk's epic certainly looks spectacular more...
New York Winter's Tale, A
Love never dies. Nor do stories of good versus evil, screenwriters with a burning desire to sit in the director's chair or high-profile actors with a dubious ear for Oirish accents. We're treated to all three plus Will Smith as the human manifestation of Lucifer and a white horse with wings more...
When dance films are well choreographed, they can jive happily into our affections. A fresh-faced John Travolta swivelled his hips to perfection in 1977's Saturday Night Fever and six years later, Jennifer Beals traded her welder's mask for ballet pumps in the sweat-drenched Flashdance. Dirty Dancing sent 1980s teenage hearts into more...
