      The long awaited new release from Disney and Pixar, Brave, is finally here. A welcome edition to the family, it’s not quite the same as the much loved predecessors; but certainly the finest animation this summer

    Not even sweet animation can make up for Hotel Transylvania; the weakest of this year's kids horror flicks.

    In my attempt to catch up with my incredibly belated reviews, and try to clear the backlog; I'm writing very short reviews on some of the more disappointing films that have come out over the past few months. Next up: Silent Hill: Revelation 3D

    In an attempt to play catch up with all over due reviews, I'm condensing the length of my standard reviews into mini ones on the less than impressive recent films. Without further ado, here's my review of the mediocre Paranormal Activity. Same spooks, more gadgets.

    @ShrewsburyFS kindly invited me to review Le Havre at one of their fortnightly showings. I was not disappointed, as this Finnish feel-good comedy is perfect for a Friday evening.

    Even though I was a little disappointed that Rian Johnson's Looper wasn't quite what I expected, it's still one of the most ambitious time travel films of all time.

    Next in my incredibly belated Fan of the Month posts is Paul Thomas-Anderson's There Will Be Blood: Slick Nick from Pop Peeling's excellent recommendation.

    The novel and film The Perks of Being A Wallflower has been a serious hit with young hipsters; does it live up to the hype? The amazing soundtrack and chemistry doesn't make up for the unlikeable plot reveal.

    Top Ten Family Films for Hallowe'en, Just to get you in the mood for Hallowe'en, here's my top ten favourite family friendly films!

    Finally, Burton is back with an animation strong enough to match The Nightmare Before Christmas. Frankenweenie proves a break from his wife and Depp is a really good thing.

    Another indie film, another super high score. Ruby Sparks is proof that the Little Miss Sunshine team have still got it.

    Once again, a highly anticipated film falls short of my super unreaslitically high expectations. I wanted to completely adore ParaNorman. With wonderful animation and fantastic characters, it has the potential of a brilliant film. It's still a worthy addition to 2012's Hallowe'en fare despite my mild disappointment.

    A couple of months ago, Fan of the Month Sam asked for me to review Drive. One of my favourite films of 2011 despite only seeing it this year, it was every bit as enjoyable on the re-watch.

    With the Hallowe'en holiday season almost upon us, there are a number predictably poor films in keeping with the festivities. Despite the promising advertising, producer Sam Rami's The Possession is pretty bad. Not as bad as The Devil Inside though, thankfully.

    For some critics to recommend just going to see Attack the Block again over The Watch is incredibly unfair and unjust. With the only similarity being the inclusion of an alien race, the two films are very different. Although not a bad film, anyone will be disappointed with The Watch if they're expecting a Joe Cornish film, rather than an Akiva Schaffer one.

    Not the best, but not the worst, film I've seen at the cinema recently; The Wedding Video is fine for a Sunday afternoon. Watched any other day of the week may result in some serious disappointment.

    Indie dramas about romance aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but Take This Waltz certainly swept me off my feet. Although one particular member of the Movie Talking team wasn’t win over.

    Twenty-two years since the release of the original Total Recall, Len Wiseman's reworking of the cult classic is now out in cinemas. With some serious changes to the plot; is it as good as the Arnie version? Fans might be disappointed
