Edge Of Tomorrow, 06/06/14

Edge Of Tomorrow - Title

Although it falls a little flat in its finale, Edge Of Tomorrow boasts non-stop action, impressive visuals and an intriguing central premise. Ultimately, its brightest spark is in the form of its two leads – Tom Cruise (Oblivion) and Emily Blunt (Looper).

The Fault In Our Stars, 06/06/14

The Fault In Our Stars - Title

Josh Boone’s (Stuck In Love) adaptation of John Green’s funny yet devastating novel ranks as one of the most emotional movies of the year – thanks, largely, to great turns from Shailene Woodley (The Spectacular Now) and Ansel Elgort (Divergent).

22 Jump Street - Title

The directors who just keep getting better, Phil Lord & Chris Miller (The Lego Movie) eclipse their 2011 smash hit, with this wonderfully satirical sequel, reuniting the dream team of Jonah Hill (The Wolf Of Wall Street) and Channing Tatum (Magic Mike).

How To Train Your Dragon 2 - Title

The co-director of the hugely popular original returns for this equally loveable sequel that brings back all the familiar faces and a voice cast led by Jay Baruchel (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice), while adding a few new characters to expand the franchise.

Think Like A Man Too, 20/06/14

Think Like A Man Too - Title

Director Tim Story (Ride Along) returns with the slightly unnecessary sequel to his 2012 hit, re-teaming with the likes of Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button) and Kevin Hart (About Last Night) for this mildly funny affair.

Review coming soon.

Transformers: Age Of Extinction, 27/06/14

Transformers: Age Of Extinction - Title

Michael Bay’s (The Rock) much-maligned franchise gets an underwhelming fourth instalment that ends up over-long, overcomplicated and pretty repetitive. The additions of Mark Wahlberg (The Fighter) and Stanley Tucci (The Devil Wears Prada) help though.

Begin Again, 27/06/14

Begin Again - Title

Mark Ruffalo (The Avengers) and Keira Knightly (Pride & Prejudice) share electric chemistry as the two leads in John Carney’s (Once) subtly thoughtful and spirited musical dramedy, blessed with a good range of catchy original songs.

Review coming soon.

Visionary Korean director Bong Joon-Ho’s post-apocalyptic English language debut assembles a diverse and talented cast, lead by an in-form Chris Evans (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), to produce a dark and incredibly stylish sci-fi near-masterpiece.

Review coming soon.

4.5 Stars - Excellent
