Children of Men - 8/10
Slick sci-fi thriller that takes a scarily realistic vision of the near future. Alfonso Cuaron's direction is impeccable and it all gets pretty intense. Very well made.

Set Fire to the Stars - 9/10
Small scale moody comedy drama with two excellent performances from Elijah Wood and Celyn Jones. Shot in black and white, the film looks beautiful. AND have to say it again, met the stars at the Edinburgh festival which makes me love the film even more!

North by Northwest (1959) - 8/10
I've seen bits of this before but not the whole thing. It's a fantastic adventure thriller from Hitchcock, one of his most outlandishly fun movies. Cary Grant is excellent as always. Some fantastic set-pieces throughout.

The Seventh Seal - 8/10
Finally got around to seeing this mysterious classic. Lots going on here in Bergman's vision of life and death. Masterfully done but to be honest I think I prefer Woody Allen's Love and Death.

Well Gimli, until more people start joining in again this might just turn into our top rated films. No problems with that though!

And at least the majority of Studio Ghibli have been rated already

Forget Bela Lugosi and Christopher Lee, here come kung-fu kicking vampires with blue nails, in this Hong Kong comedy-horror sensation that opened Western eyes to Eastern fantasy films.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013) - 10/10
Brilliant, love it! The extended edition is a definite improvement. I get all the criticisms aimed at Jackson's hobbit movies but there's no denying they are just excellent, fun adventure movies. Smaug is one of the most impressive creations we've had from Middle Earth.

The Act of Killing (2012) - 10/10
A grim, surreal documentary that has executioner's reaccounting their life work. Its frightening and bizarre that these men can easily get back into the mindset of their crimes. A totally original documentary.

The Bicycle Thieves (1948) - 8/10
Heart wrenching little tale. Finely acted and directed.

Once again Christopher Nolan crafts a mind-blowing blockbuster that is miles ahead of the competition. An intelligent, emotional masterpiece. Cast and special effects are A+

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies - 10/10
A brilliant ending to this fantastical series. Jackson does take liberties with the story but the man knows what he's doing. A rollicking action adventure movie.

Frozen - 8/10
Well this is very popular for a good reason, one of Disney's finest with two great heroines.

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes - 7/10
Rather tongue-in-cheek and maybe not the best feminist tale but clearly Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell are having the time of their lives here. That gymnastics song is a riot.

Jane Fonda gives a wonderfully nuanced performance in this grim drama. I feel like it's slightly dated but sometimes the thriller aspects are quite creepy and the chemistry between Fonda and Sutherland is spot on. Nice score as well.

Birdman - 10/10
Brilliant, genius film with exceptionally good performances headlined by an amazing Michael Keaton. Director Alejandro G Inarritu basically directs the hell out of this film!

Searching for Sugar Man - 10/10
An uplifting music documentary that will have you buying a CD of a guy you've never heard of the minute after you watch it.

Mud - 9/10
Moody and atmospheric drama with fine work once again from Matthew McConaughey but it's the young teens who really impress.

Horror of Dracula - 8/10
Christopher Lee's Dracula rocks in this Hammer horror. Probably the best Hammer film I've seen.

Fitzcarraldo - 10/10

Big Hero 6 - 10/10
Brilliant Disney film, very emotional, very funny and a great adventure story. What more can you ask? One of the studios finest in years.

Whiplash - 10/10
A sweaty, claustrophobic moody drama that shows two men clashing due to the obsession of their talents. JK Simmons finally gets a role where he commands the screen for the entire movie.

The Wind Rises - 9/10
Hayao Miyazaki's swan song movie. Beautiful work as always.

Persuasion - 9/10
Sumptuous little ITV TV movie that gains lots from an unusual cast headlined by the always radiant Sally Hawkins.

Charade - 8/10
Hitchcock style mystery with plenty of comedy thanks to Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn's performances. Paris location is beautifully shot.

All the Oscar movies! Majority of them are excellent!

The Imitation Game - 10/10
Perfectly detailed telling of a very important true story. Cast give it their all and despite some heavy competition I would be very happy if Cumberbatch won the Oscar tonight.

Gone Girl - 10/10
Fincher's bleak mystery thriller has one hell of a performance from Rosamund Pike.

Boyhood - 10/10
Totally unique, one of a kind film. Deserves all the praise its picking up.

Still Alice - 9/10
Julianne Moore gives a moving performance in this quietly affective drama. Credit to all involved.

also....

Red Sorghum (1987) - 9/10
Sumptuous, gorgeous filmmaking as always from Zhang Yimou with a debut performance from the amazing Gong Li. Atmospheric and intimate little film.

Leaving Las Vegas - 9/10
Exceptionally good performances from the two leads and Mike Figgis creates an atmospheric, grungy and jazz filled vision of Vegas. One of the most romantic films of the '90s despite the grim subject matter.

Wild - 9/10
Witherspoon is on particularly fine form in this moving true drama following a woman who plans to turn her life around after a wilderness trek. The handling between flashbacks is well executed and Laura Dern is memorable as the mother.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower - 9/10
One of the finest teen movies of recent years which isn't afraid to delve into some serious subject matter. Cast give it their all.

Beverly Hills Cop - 7/10
The film really depends on your opinion on Eddie Murphy because it really is a vehicle for the motormouth star. Thankfully this is Murphy at his best so it's a fun cop comedy.
 
The Sting - 8/10
A retro style hustle movie with two stars at the top of their game. A real feel good caper movie.
