  • The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies (3D)

    While it’s plagued by the problems of its predecessors, Peter Jackson’s final voyage to Middle-Earth packs a surprising amount of punch.

  • Keep On Keepin' On

    Don’t worry, you don’t need to be a fan of jazz to be a fan of this joyful, revelatory music doc.

  • Horrible Bosses 2

    An equal sequel, which comes overstuffed with winning gags, big laughs and star talent.

    December 9, 2014 10:25

    Ridley Scott’s revamp of this biblical epic too often opts for the camp over the intimate and humane.

  • Love Is Now

    A rich, emotive and beautifully lensed local love story that deftly steers clear of cliches.

    December 2, 2014 12:39

    A compelling first act is let down by one too many plot twists, but Atom Egoyan’s latest still proves quietly shattering.

    December 1, 2014 11:42
  • Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

    Ed Oxenbould’s charm can’t save this bland, uninspired and all too family friendly kids flick.
