REVIEW: The Grand Budapest Hotel

Wes A’s gang rack up the cameos, an elegant confection of crime romp, murder, good manners.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

REVIEW: Captain Phillips

Tense high seas hijack standoff with Paul Greengrass at the bridge, anchored by Tom Hanks.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

REVIEW: House Of Cards S2

Solid OTT politicking from a great Kevin Spacey, let down by some shaggy side stories.

Rating: 3 out of 5

Enjoyable bio showing how much Alma Reville (Mrs H) worked behind the scenes to cut Psycho into shape.

Rating: 3 out of 5

Great Matthew McC perf as a cowboy hustling unapproved drugs in the early days of the Aids crisis.

Rating: 4 out of 5

REVIEW: The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

Generic Vegas laughs that’s less than magic even with Carell, Buscemi & Gandolfini.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5

REVIEW: Room 237

Loopy film studies fever dream diving deep into the hidden meanings Kubrick (maybe) packed into The Shining.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

REVIEW: The Hidden Fortress

Kurosawa’s Tohoscope tour de force packs in action, a princess on the run and some great shots.

Rating: 4 out of 5

REVIEW: Europa Report

Decent indie sci-fi about a mission to one of Jupiter’s moons that works round the found footage style.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

REVIEW: Gravity

Bullock & Clooney float in space. 3D pushed to the limit, breathless tension, great shots. A proper cinema film.

Rating: 4 out of 5

REVIEW: The Great Passage

Warm oddball epic about a 15 year quest to produce a new dictionary. Japan’s Oscar entry - good bet.
