Sightseers (2012)

I like my comedies like I like my men; black. And starring Adam Sandler. Not really. Here is a very black and very English comedy from the great mind of Ben Wheatley. 46 more words

What Richard Did (2012)

I was quite tired when I started to watch this and intended only to see the first half or so but I had to see it through to the end. 44 more words

Frankenweenie (2012)

Tim Burton is a fine film-maker and he seems to get even better when working in animation. Frankenweenie is as Gothic and moody as you would expect but there is a beautiful heart behind the film and sweetness that mixes perfectly with the dark subject matter.

The Sessions (2012)

The Sessions is like a really, really good TV movie. It’s a small scale and a true story and John Hawkes and Helen Hunt knock it out of the park. 27 more words

Les Misérables (2012)

Right, so a musical? Well, there have been great musicals before. Let us not forget The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Little Shop of Horrors, 65 more words

Flight (2012)

And we’re back with a real Oscar big-hitter. Here is a film with performances up the ying yang. Once again the key here is to know nothing going in (the trailer shows almost the entire first half) and then you can enjoy it properly. 14 more words

Django Unchained (2012)

What can you say about Quentin Tarantino? A lazier man (if such a thing can be imagined  would say you either love him or you hate him but I don’t believe many film fans can honestly say they hate the man. 161 more words
