WHAT I LIKED: A crime-thriller with real depth; Ben Affleck's 'The Town' isn't just great edge-of-your-seat cops and robbers stuff, but its brilliant narrative genuinely allows you to understand both sides too. Indeed that's a rather rare thing in... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Dr No' may have started it all, but 'Goldfinger' is where Bond really establishes itself as the explosive and glamorous affair that we're used to today. Yes gone here are the subtleties of its predecessors, as in that place Guy Hami... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: This is yet another Liam Neeson-fronted thriller so we should have some idea of what we're getting by now, but the core asset of 'Non-Stop,' is undoubtedly the mystery and the way it builds tension so surprisingly well. Yes you genui... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Where 'Thunderball' succeeds most is actually in its build-up, where director Terrence Young brings back a level of slow-burn mystery and charm that we got less of in Hamilton's more famous 'Goldfinger.' Here the lead characters - an... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: This amazing film takes the fight on a timely issue, and it wins because of its developed characterisation and its tragically poetic story. Yes 'Philadelphia,' genuinely brings a tear yo the eye and engages brilliantly with its touch... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Like 'Tomorrow never dies,' this film is packed with fun, whilst Brosnan's severe persona balances out any Moore-like cheesiness. In this instance these contrasts feel even less at odds thanks to an all-round improvement on Brosnan's... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: At its centre, 'Doctor Strange,' is really just another simple superhero origin story, but this brilliant film proves that even though we've seen similar stories told before doesn't mean that they can't feel fresh and thoroughly enga... Read the full review »

Thor (2011)

Thor (2011)

8 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: People praise today's Marvel Studios for choosing interesting directors and giving them the space to make the films that they want to make, but back in 2011, they did just that with Kenneth Branagh and 'Thor.' Yes, if you read the s... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Iron Man 3' is the sequel that Iron Man 2 should have been, as it takes a similarly interesting character premise (this time Tony's PTSD after the events of The Avengers) and crucially takes it seriously. Yes rather than turning the... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Few films out there bring quite the sense of celebratory joy and excitement that The Avengers does, as it not only marks the first time that these characters that we'd grown to care for come together, but the way it's executed makes... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: On the one hand, ‘Man of Steel’ is a surprisingly delicate character study that spends an awful lot of time grounding the most realistic, human and relatable version of Superman we’ve ever seen on the big screen. This is largel... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: It's great to see Sean Connery return, and there are certainly mysteries and action here to engage WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: Connery just hasn't got the sparkle of before, and with the lead slightly behind, the rest of the film follows eve... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The final chapter of Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy is widely accepted as a miss-step by most, but quite frankly I'm of the opinion that it's by far the best of the three as it combines the touching character stuff of 'Begins,' and the... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Despite its crazy concepts and mad, spoofy originality, 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' is a film so comfortable in its own shoes that you'd be forgiven for mistaking Sofia Boutella's metal legs for slippers, but then I suppose that's... Read the full review »

Spy (2015)

Spy (2015)

9 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: ‘Spy,’ – bizarrely the first film ever to go by that name - manages to bundle its brilliant cast and arguably messy story into one of the best-written and most entertaining comedies of the year. Yes, not only does this film get... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Connery's later Bonds focused more on the action, but this offering focuses far more on character. As a result, this is one of the most involving, layered and moving films in the series. We get a touching love story and an all-new, f... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: To bring in a new Bond, they shook up everything. Here we get something much more light-hearted and fun, but luckily this first Moore entry is more charming than silly. As a result, we see the benefit of it taking itself less serious... Read the full review »
