Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
1/5 28% 21 And Over (2013) " A Porkies-lite college comedy that offers virtually nothing by way of laughs. Avoid." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 28, 2013
3/5 12% Safe Haven (2013) " Hallström is an old pro at navigating this kind of undemandingly dramatic yarn and does a pretty fine job with Sparks' story." — Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 25, 2013
3/5 63% The Liability (2013) " A blackly effective British road movie fuelled by the easy chemistry between the two leads." — Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 17, 2013
4/5 94% Lore (2013) " Shortland's measured pacing and hypnotic visuals make this a mesmerising journey through a defeated landscape." — Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 17, 2013
3/5 64% Unfinished Song (2013) " With Redgrave on top form and the story's moving take on devotion in the face of death, your tear ducts will be powerless to resist." — Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 17, 2013
3/5 86% Ballroom Dancer " An insightful portrait of the problems of falling from grace and working with your lover, even if the editing may throw more shade on Kryklyvyy than he deserves." — Time Out
Posted Jan 15, 2013
2/5 33% Cheerful Weather For The Wedding (2012) " The film builds up to something that never comes." — Time Out
Posted Jan 8, 2013
3/5 79% Quartet (2013) " A frothy and often charming directorial effort from Hoffman, his first in a Hollywood career that's spanned five decades, that will keep Downton fans happy." — Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 31, 2012
2/5 4% Playing for Keeps (2012) " Everyone involved deserves a script with more wit, originality and sense of purpose." — Time Out
Posted Dec 26, 2012
4/5 58% I, Anna " The story is perhaps better suited to a superior TV thriller but it's given an extra touch of class by the cast, direction and cinematography - something of a love letter to London." — Metro [UK]
Posted Dec 12, 2012
2/5 —— When Santa Fell to Earth (Als Der Weihnachtsmann Vom Himmel Fiel) (2014) " The main snag is that this was filmed in Funke's native German - and it's been dubbed, not subtitled." — Time Out
Posted Dec 4, 2012
4/5 58% I, Anna " A classy, enigmatic thriller that shows off contemporary London at its cinematic best." — Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 3, 2012
3/5 91% The Sapphires (2013) " Far too lovable to resist." — Empire Magazine
Posted Nov 4, 2012
2/5 80% Ginger & Rosa (2013) " Despite some strong moments, Ginger and Rosa fails to really convince." — Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 15, 2012
3/5 50% Pusher (2012) " Nail-biting and genuinely heartbreaking moments mean it's emotionally involving, even if it isn't the cheeriest drug dealer saga in town." — Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 7, 2012
3/5 75% The Intouchables (2012) " It delivers broad laughs and tugs at the heartstrings without delving too deep - the very definition of a crowd-pleaser." — Time Out
Posted Sep 18, 2012
3/5 58% Now Is Good (2013) " [An] uneven but ultimately effective weepie with terrific turns from Considine and Williams, who outshine the younger cast." — Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 16, 2012
3/5 58% Hysteria (2012) " Lightly humorous, well performed and not nearly as smutty as you might imagine. The earth may not move, but there are tingles of pleasure along the way." — Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 16, 2012
1/5 38% Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie (2012) " Various articles describe Tim and Eric's style as 'avant garde' but we remain unconvinced." — Time Out
Posted Aug 21, 2012
3/5 67% Offender (2012) " A solid revenge thriller in which Cole excels." — Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 6, 2012
3/5 51% Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days (2012) " Greg avoids the curse of the three in the third outing for the Wimpy Kid. Hardly groundbreaking but plenty of fun for its target audience." — Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 1, 2012
4/5 95% Searching for Sugar Man (2012) " Music fans will love this indie documentary. Try to avoid Googling him before you watch, though." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jul 23, 2012
2/5 67% The Prey (2013) " A film that might, in America, star Jason Statham or even Steven Seagal." — Time Out
Posted Jul 10, 2012
4/5 89% A Royal Affair (2012) " A voluptuous slice of historical drama that will satisfy period fans and Mikkelsen admirers equally." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 10, 2012
2/5 8% A Thousand Kisses Deep (2013) " It's brimming with bold ideas but none entirely come off, despite a willing cast and solid performances from the leads." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 10, 2012
4/5 95% Sing Your Song (2012) " There's so much more to Belafonte than the Banana Boat Song and Rostock does a fine job revealing it in a fitting celebration of a mighty talent." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 7, 2012
3/5 79% Ill Manors " It may be slow in parts and its heart-sinking scenarios won't fill you with cheer, but it has bags of style and a terrific soundtrack from promising debut director Drew. It might just kickstart a few acting careers, too." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 3, 2012
3/5 74% The Source Family (2013) " Topical and worthwhile, it deserves to find an audience - even if you might struggle to catch it in Saudi Arabia." — Empire Magazine
Posted May 14, 2012
4/5 65% All In Good Time " While Ritchie and Karan offer up charming performances, their characters could use more depth: the romantic complications feel sudden without much psychological insight." — Guardian
Posted May 10, 2012
2/5 20% The Lucky One (2012) " Even taken as simple schmaltz, 'The Lucky One' lacks the romantic impact of the adaptation of Sparks's 'The Notebook' or even the Channing Tatum-starrer 'Dear John'." — Time Out
Posted May 1, 2012
1/5 0% Elfie Hopkins " It's a bit of a mess that doesn't serve its decent cast well. Avoid like a stinky kipper." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 15, 2012
3/5 67% Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (2012) " As awkward as McGregor's geeky hero and almost as confused as the titular plan, Salmon Fishing is still very likable if you're prepared to take the bait." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 15, 2012
3/5 63% Delicacy (2012) " The storytelling is a little muddled but Tautou brings all her elfine charm to bear." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 10, 2012
3/5 44% StreetDance 2 (2014) " Boutella shows promise beyond her day job as one of Madonna's dancers but otherwise speaking parts are sensibly limited to those who can act." — Time Out
Posted Mar 27, 2012
3/5 85% 21 Jump Street (2012) " Thanks to charming leads and a smattering of laughs, this is still worth a punt for fans of light buddy comedies." — Time Out
Posted Mar 13, 2012
2/5 31% A Man's Story (2012) " Fashion fans may find 'A Man's Story' interesting, but even they may be disappointed by the lack of insight into the man and his process." — Time Out
Posted Mar 6, 2012
3/5 —— Dattak (2007) Time Out
Posted Feb 23, 2012
3/5 56% The Adopted (Les adoptés) " 'The Adopted' serves as a calling card for Laurent, who displays a flair for character-based humour as well as strong visual direction." — Time Out
Posted Feb 21, 2012
4/5 78% The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2012) " Charming, delightful and highly amusing - just what you'd expect from the star studded cast of veterans." — Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 20, 2012
3/5 29% The Vow (2012) " Both stars make decent use of the script's gently humorous potential. As a superficial look at a weird situation, it's reasonably diverting." — Time Out
Posted Feb 7, 2012
2/5 42% Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (2012) " It's a harmless family film with an old-fashioned spirit of adventure, but the writing doesn't live up to the promise of the premise." — Time Out
Posted Feb 2, 2012
3/5 50% Best Laid Plans (2012) " This might be uneven, but it's well filmed, with a clutch of affecting scenes - a more thoughtful affair than your average Brit fight flick." — Time Out
Posted Feb 2, 2012
3/5 32% Man on a Ledge (2012) " This embraces its own lunacy readily enough, never aiming for anything more than the disposable thrills it delivers thick and fast." — Time Out
Posted Jan 31, 2012
3/5 69% X: Night of Vengeance (2011) " Raw, convincing Aussie thriller set on the meaner streets of Sydney." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 18, 2012
3/5 79% Mother and Child (2010) " There's no shortage of talent in this ensemble drama about the bond between mothers and their children." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 3, 2012
3/5 38% Oscar and the Lady in Pink Time Out
Posted Dec 23, 2011
3/5 33% The Lady (2012) " A worthwhile tribute with unforgettable scenes and an awards-worthy performance from Yeoh." — Time Out
Posted Dec 22, 2011
3/5 84% Puss in Boots (2011) " 'Puss in Boots' is uneven, but when it's on course, cat fans will be in heaven." — Time Out
Posted Dec 6, 2011
3/5 79% Las Acacias (2012) " A moving drama set against beautiful Latin American backdrops - just don't expect fireworks." — Empire Magazine
Posted Nov 28, 2011
2/5 15% The Tiger's Tail (2006) Time Out
Posted Nov 18, 2011
2/5 27% What Happens in Vegas (2008) Time Out
