Empire's 5-Star Reviews
Sort by: Alphabetical Most Recently Reviewed
The Terminator (2015)
A cyborg assassin called "The Terminator" is sent back through time to 1984 to kill the seemingly innocent Sarah Connor - a woman whose unborn son will lead the human race to victory in a bitter future war with a race of machines. If the Terminator succeeds, mankind is doomed. Sarah's only hope is a soldier from that post-apocalyptic war, who has chased the Terminator back through time. The future of the human race depends on which one finds her first...

The Look Of Silence (2015)
The director of The Act of Killing returns to Indonesia to follow an optician as he confronts members of the death squad that murdered his brother – and a million others – in the mid-1960s.

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)
In a nuclear-devastated future, road warrior Max (Hardy) reluctantly helps Furiosa (Theron) escape from Immortan Joe (Keays-Byrne) and his War Boys, along with Joe’s quintet of brides.

Still Alice (2015)
Fifty year-old linguistics professor Alice Howland (Moore), a happily married mother of three, begins to suffer from memory loss — symptoms that lead to a devastating diagnosis: early on-set Alzheimer’s.

The Duke Of Burgundy (2015)
Evelyn (d’Anna) and Cynthia (Knudsen) roleplay as submissive servant and dominant mistress. As the couple repeat their daily game, Cynthia starts to feel trapped in the role of sadist, while Evelyn becomes impatient with her partner’s lack of enthusiasm for tormenting her.

Whiplash (2015)
Andrew (Teller) is a promising drumming student at a prestigious music school, but he wants to be the best. In order to do that he’s going to have to impress the exacting conductor Fletcher (Simmons) who will make his life hell.

Birdman Or (The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance) (2015)
Riggan Thomson (Keaton), the fading megastar of the Birdman superhero franchise, is trying to reclaim artistic glory by putting on a Raymond Carver adaptation on Broadway. As opening night looms, he faces battles with his cast, his family and his own cracking psyche.

Paddington (2014)
After a cataclysmic earthquake in his native Darkest Peru, a young talking bear heads to London in search of a home.

Interstellar (2014)
With Earth dying and resources dwindling, former astronaut Cooper (McConaughey), along with scientists Brand (Hathaway), Doyle (Bentley) and Romilly (Gyasi), take humanity’s last spaceship through a wormhole in search of a new beginning for the human race.

Leviathan (2014)
A blue-collar man (Serebryakov) has a home that stands proudly on Russia's Barents Sea coastline, a monument to a life of hard work and toil. But corrupt local politico (Madyanov) wants it for himself.

Nightcrawler (2014)
Los Angeles-based night-drifter Lou Bloom (Gyllenhaal) is looking for a job. After stumbling upon a pre-dawn car wreck, he spots a cameraman (Paxton) recording the carnage. Hours later, he sees the same images on the morning news. Finally, Bloom has found his calling...

Mr. Turner (2014)
A highly personal account of the twilight years of British land and seascape artist J. M. W. Turner (Spall), which finds him at the height of his fame and talent, but increasingly adrift from the world.

The Babadook (2014)
Widowed Amelia (Davis) struggles to cope with her six year-old son Samuel (Wiseman), who is terrified of imaginary monsters. A strange children’s book, Mr. Babadook, inspires Sam to a nightmarish fantasy. Gradually, Amelia comes to share his fear and believe that a monster called the Babadook is persecuting her family.

Tony Benn: Will And Testament (2014)
Political campaigner, passionate humanitarian and pipe-smoking icon, Tony Benn was never afraid to polarise or aflame with his trenchant views and tightly-held views. As such, he's a mesmerising subject for Skip Kite's documentary.

Le Jour Se Lève
Foundry worker Francois (Gabin) shoots and kills Valentin (Berry), then holes up in a room in a guest house. The film respools to reveal the circumstances that put Francois in such a desperate position.
