3/5 26% Barely Lethal (2015) The great set-up could, and really should, have delivered a better movie than it did, but while it's unlikely to be remembered alongside the films it delights in name-checking, there's enjoyment to be had. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 60% John Dies at the End (2013) The stakes don't seem all that high, despite claims of world-ending consequences. If what you want is schlocky fun, then John Dies at the End should deliver. If you want something more, then you may want to look elsewhere afterwards. - CineVue EDIT

1/5 4% The Cold Light of Day (2012) It is sometimes said that audiences get the films they deserve, but it's hard to imagine how any audience could have done something so awful as to deserve The Cold Light of Day. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 90% Patience (After Sebald) (2012) Thoughtful, discursive and somewhat mesmeric, Patience (After Sebald) is an unusual piece of filmmaking, yet Gee's film functions well as a solid introductory primer to Sebald's books. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Grandma Lo-fi: The Basement Tapes Of Sigrídur Níelsdóttir (2012) A very sweet and surprisingly moving tale. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 63% Howl (2010) Howl basically plays like a decent Sunday-afternoon TV docudrama. It may be considered by some to be art, but I imagine few will consider it to be cinema. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 45% Mammoth (Mammut) (2009) A film neither willfully difficult nor easily accessible, conjuring an illusion of vapidness that may be rather too convincing for some audiences. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 71% Red (2010) The comedy works well, even if the action sequences are somewhat less than original. Malkovich in particular delivers a great turn. - CineVue EDIT

5/5 81% Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) A defiantly youthful, but nevertheless mature film that is not quite like anything you will have seen before. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 87% Inception (2010) Nolan's Inception triumphs in the manner of the best summer blockbusters: it's awesomely original, hugely intelligent and, above all, enormously enjoyable. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 68% The Brothers Bloom (2009) An endlessly intriguing, and frequently beautiful film that will certainly reward (even require) multiple viewings, and inspire endless debate. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 85% Whip It (2009) Neither as consistently funny nor as charming as it would like to think; yet Page's sincere performance brings some extra gravitas to an otherwise unremarkable script. - CineVue EDIT
