Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
3/5 100% Arrugas (Wrinkles) " An unsparing look at the winter of life, salted with humour and emotion." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 14, 2014
3/5 100% Le Roi et l'oiseau (The King and the Mockingbird) (2003) " Its dreamlike mood and magical spirit runs through Studio Ghibli but its deliberately squiffy structure makes it less likely to chime with younger viewers." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 7, 2014
3/5 44% Pioneer " Headhunters' Hennie excels as the man caught between paranoia and menace. A spirited knuckle-crack of a thriller." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 7, 2014
3/5 47% Rio 2 (2014) " A very unfocused, sporadically funny film, lifted by its (predictable) visual splendour." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 4, 2014
3/5 38% The Fold " Verbally as sparse of the jagged Cornish landscape, this character drama is anchored by a strong central performance from McCormack." — Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 24, 2014
4/5 99% 20 Feet From Stardom (2013) " A crowdpleaser that also tells an important story about showbiz, it's fab. You'll come out singing." — Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 24, 2014
3/5 47% Yves Saint Laurent (2014) " As elegant as the man's clothes, this handsome biopic traces 20 incident-filled years in the life of the designer." — Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 16, 2014
2/5 27% A Long Way Down (2014) " Trivialising despair, it's a depressing waste of a major cast, and an early bid for mess of the year." — Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 16, 2014
4/5 83% The Unknown Known (2014) " Dedicated to Morris' champion, Roger Ebert, who would be proud, this is a provocative, revelatory and disturbing film." — Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 16, 2014
4/5 98% The Rocket (2014) " A stirring, lushly-constructed celebration of youthful spirit." — Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 10, 2014
3/5 18% Ride Along (2014) " [It's] silly and unsophisticated but it does have enough cute gags to be agreeably amusing. Hart, who screams like a little girl, makes for funny, likeable company." — Metro [UK]
Posted Mar 4, 2014
4/5 100% Yurusarezaru mono (Unforgiven) " The samurai/Western osmosis is given a terrific new surge by this beautiful-looking, smartly modified translation of the Eastwood classic." — Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 24, 2014
3/5 64% August: Osage County (2013) " Apart from the Oscar-nominated Streep, Benedict Cumberbatch, Margo Martindale and Chris Cooper also snatch great moments in the non-stop melodrama of mean, while director John Wells stands back and lets them rip." — Metro [UK]
Posted Feb 13, 2014
4/5 93% Eat Drink Man Woman (Yin shi nan nu) (1994) " This is a startlingly superior piece of craftsmanship, with the flavour of life and richness of the script conveyed via uniformly wonderful performances." — Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 10, 2014
4/5 76% The Invisible Woman (2013) " One for lovers of ravishing craft, although the elusive emotional engagement is frustrating." — Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 3, 2014
3/5 58% Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom (2013) " It's vivid, substantial and works hard to be worthy, but as it ticks off the milestones of a monumental life it flickers more often than it really catches fire." — Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 30, 2013
3/5 88% Fill the Void (2013) " Although it lacks a little of the emotional heft of Haifaa al-Mansour's work, it's a well acted and delicately told tale." — Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 9, 2013
2/5 75% La religieuse (The Nun) " A strangely drab adaptation of Diderot's much racier novel." — Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 28, 2013
2/5 14% A Belfast Story " A thriller that means well but falls some way short of thrilling." — Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 21, 2013
3/5 100% The Blue Black Hussar " An upbeat comeback story for an enduring legend of British pop." — Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 20, 2013
1/5 8% Diana (2013) " More terrible and tacky than one could have imagined, it will soon be forgotten and consigned to the True Movies channel to play alongside television movies about Karen Carpenter, Jayne Mansfield and Jackie Kennedy." — Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 16, 2013
2/5 26% Planes (2013) " A Pixney misfire." — Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 12, 2013
4/5 79% Foxfire " Cantet's latest is long but never drags, offering a frequently thrilling evocation of teen lives. Proof that The Class and Time Out were no pan flashes." — Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 5, 2013
4/5 30% The Lone Ranger (2013) " Talk about a pleasant surprise! Real storytelling, well thought-out and beautifully, at times insanely, executed, with excitement, laughs and fun to make you feel seven years old again." — Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 5, 2013
3/5 85% The Secret Garden (1993) " The film is not as enchanting as it should be." — Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 1, 2013
4/5 90% Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan (1982) " It was Star Trek II that put the franchise on the right track as the spirit of Gene Roddenberry's 60s television series was harnessed to spectacular effect." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jul 31, 2013
4/5 89% The Bridges of Madison County (1995) " Streep and Eastwood's chemistry makes the film." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jul 31, 2013
2/5 64% A Rage in Harlem (1991) " It's largely a cheap looking, tawdry affair, with tortuous interludes in which the humour devolves on gratuitous unpleasantness or tired old bad jokes at the expense of women." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jul 1, 2013
2/5 29% The House of the Spirits (1994) " Given the talents involved, the film's hesitations in style and consistent failure to really move must be counted as a major disappointment." — Empire Magazine
Posted May 20, 2013
4/5 95% A Hijacking (2013) " A slow burner; intense, utterly engrossing and believable." — Empire Magazine
Posted May 5, 2013
4/5 90% Bernie (2012) " Linklater's Fargo, it's funny peculiar and funny ha ha, with Black a delight and Linklater in impressive control of superbly judged content and tone." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 22, 2013
3/5 74% Love Is All You Need (2013) " Pleasingly endearing." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 15, 2013
3/5 78% A Late Quartet (2012) " Measured performances from the seasoned cast balance out a script that errs towards the melodramatic." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 1, 2013
2/5 55% Post Tenebras Lux (2013) " Reygadas' big ideas translate with mixed results." — Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 17, 2013
3/5 43% The Paperboy (2012) " Watch it with Killer Joe for the ultimate sweaty, twisted double-bill." — Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 10, 2013
2/5 36% Hyde Park on Hudson (2012) " Disappointing given the talent and situation, dull as ditchwater and historically suspect ..." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 27, 2013
3/5 94% The Sessions (2012) " Formulaic but uplifting, positive and accessible." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 14, 2013
2/5 52% Grassroots (2012) " Strange to think that Gyllenhaal's film is based on a true story because the idea of anyone voting for someone as unlikable as Grant seems a stretch." — Empire Movies
Posted Nov 4, 2012
4/5 87% Frankenweenie (2012) " Very sweet, very funny, really quite touching and exquisitely handmade, by a film lover with humour and a heart, for a like-minded audience." — Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 15, 2012
3/5 61% Private Peaceful " With the feel of prestige telly, it's nicely done, sweet and moving." — Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 7, 2012
4/5 94% Lorenzo's Oil (1992) " Exhausting, intelligent and undeniably moving." — Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 7, 2012
4/5 74% Hope Springs (2012) " Very funny, it's also penetrating on the ravages of time on love and marriage and sweetly touching, but with abundantly incongruous randy content to heartily amuse." — Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 9, 2012
3/5 63% The Wedding Video (2014) " Not quite Four Weddings-funny but always entertaining and endearing in equal measure. Less so if you're preparing for a wedding." — Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 13, 2012
4/5 41% The Flowers of War (2011) " As you'd expect, it's beautiful, emotional and exciting, if florid in style. Bale, beauties and English dialogue widen Yimou's appeal." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jul 30, 2012
2/5 57% Detachment (2012) " Incredible performances from the cast, but Detachment is perhaps just too pretentiously depressing for its own good." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jul 8, 2012
2/5 19% Lay the Favorite (2012) " Particularly disappointing given the names involved, it's only mildly amusing at best, and more often downright tedious." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 19, 2012
2/5 22% What to Expect When You're Expecting (2012) " Poor Kirk Jones, who directed Nanny McPhee and Waking Ned, can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear of a script. But he could have left out the golf cart chase." — Empire Magazine
Posted May 24, 2012
3/5 83% Return (2012) " Skipping the usual flashbacks-and-cold-sweats cliches, Return has an understated power, even if the story traverses pretty well-trodden ground." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 29, 2012
2/5 55% Albert Nobbs (2012) " Not only sad, sad, sad but dreary and unpleasant, peopled with largely unsympathetic characters but for McTeer, who is great." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 23, 2012
3/5 65% This Must Be The Place (2012) " Determinedly quirky and cool, arresting and ultimately too baffling to be satisfying, although Penn is priceless. Cultdom beckons." — Empire Magazine
