Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
2/5 50% Trouble with the Curve (2012) " John Goodman weighs in with a nice cameo as Clint's old boss, but the rest is strictly relegation form." — Independent
Posted May 12, 2014
1/5 11% After Earth (2013) " The effects are second-hand stuff from Alien and Star Trek, spliced with Shyamalan's regular homilies on Personal Growth." — Independent
Posted May 2, 2014
5/5 99% Metropolis (1927) " Here is the starting-point of so much modern cinema." — Independent
Posted Apr 1, 2014
2/5 44% Cold Comes The Night (2014) " The upstate New York location looks as cold as death, though it still doesn't justify that feeble title." — Independent
Posted Jan 6, 2014
2/5 64% 2 Guns (2013) " Like the Eighties never went away." — Independent
Posted Jan 1, 2014
4/5 98% Blackfish (2013) " Save the whale? After watching this documentary about the mistreatment of killer whales, you'll never mock that sentiment again." — Independent
Posted Jan 1, 2014
5/5 94% Lore (2013) " The Australian director Cate Shortland has made a quite stunning film about the collapse of Nazi Germany, seen not from a Berlin bunker but through the eyes of a 14-year-old girl." — Independent
Posted Jan 1, 2014
3/5 98% Call Me Kuchu (2013) " It's a lesson in courage, in being determined to enjoy one's life even as the authorities threaten to take it away." — Independent
Posted Dec 31, 2013
4/5 95% Stories We Tell (2013) " Deeply affectionate and sometimes very moving." — Independent
Posted Dec 31, 2013
2/5 54% Oblivion (2013) " As a piece of narrative, though, it's portentous, sluggish and fatally ungripping." — Independent
Posted Dec 31, 2013
1/5 72% Pacific Rim (2013) " Pacific Rim is a special-effects behemoth, a toy franchise with a deafeningly loud movie attached -- Transformers with an A-level." — Independent
Posted Dec 30, 2013
3/5 89% The World's End (2013) " It's fine in its way, a fond and silly salute to pub crawls, old friends, crap cars, roundabouts, British eccentricity and keeping your head in a crisis -- it's just terribly hit-and-miss." — Independent
Posted Dec 30, 2013
1/5 79% Quartet (2013) " As portraits of old age go, Quartet is better than that other recent retirement comedy The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, but only in the way a touch of lumbago is better than shingles." — Independent
Posted Dec 22, 2013
5/5 91% Blue Jasmine (2013) " In its basic situation can be heard the distant clang of A Streetcar Named Desire, though it's neither pastiche nor reprise, just a quietly respectful tribute." — Independent
Posted Dec 17, 2013
2/5 86% The Conjuring (2013) " Advance word that this would be the scariest horror since Amityville proves well wide of the mark." — Independent
Posted Dec 16, 2013
4/5 93% The Hunt (2013) " The acting on all fronts is outstanding, with Mikkelsen holding the centre magnificently as the wronged teacher, his life contaminated by the slow-acting poison of rumour." — Independent
Posted Dec 16, 2013
4/5 95% The Act Of Killing (2013) " The shock of the final scene must be left unspoken; suffice to say its impact exceeds even the nightmarish queasiness which this brilliant and horrible film has striven to contain." — Independent
Posted Dec 16, 2013
4/5 93% Frances Ha (2013) " Gerwig superbly incarnates the contradictions of this insecure woman." — Independent
Posted Dec 11, 2013
3/5 99% Wadjda (2013) " In the title role Mohammed makes a sweet scamp, wry and watchful, always chancing her arm even as she senses trouble ahead -- which is, in a nutshell, what most Saudi women can expect of life." — Independent
Posted Dec 10, 2013
2/5 78% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010) " It feels like the longest, deathliest panto ever made -- and still it isn't over. " — Independent
Posted Nov 20, 2013
91% Orfeu Negro (Black Orpheus) (1959) " It's the music, ecstatic, delirious, overwhelming, that is the star of the show: the bossa nova has never had a setting like this." — Independent
Posted Nov 15, 2013
3/5 29% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) " Moretz is a dynamic presence, and fires off her spiky one-liners with magnificent timing. The downside of her star quality is that she puts the rest in a pretty feeble light." — Independent
Posted Aug 15, 2013
4/5 93% Our Children (2013) " This is film-making of a very high order." — Independent
Posted Jul 31, 2013
3/5 96% The Deep (2013) " This story of survival is bizarre, inexplicable, and true." — Independent
Posted Jul 16, 2013
3/5 56% Man of Steel (2013) " It's not bad, despite its runaway length, and Cavill looks likely to be the poster boy for a whole new generation of fans." — Independent
Posted Jun 13, 2013
3/5 87% Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) " Star Trek Into Darkness gets the job done without ever threatening to raise one's pulse. It's a thoroughly professional entertainment." — Independent
Posted May 10, 2013
1/5 28% G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) " It displays a level of intelligence that will not tax a 12-year-old boy." — Independent
Posted Mar 28, 2013
4/5 84% Chariots of Fire (1981) " What fails as drama are the races themselves, shot front-on so that we don't know who's winning until the tape is breasted, but Hugh Hudson's decision to use slow motion and David Watkin's beautiful lighting lend them a proper heroic burnish." — Independent
Posted Feb 22, 2013
3/5 72% Fracture (2007) Independent
Posted Jan 22, 2013
2/5 30% The Tempest (2010) Independent

Posted Jan 22, 2013
4/5 —— Cloud Nine Independent
Posted Jan 22, 2013
3/5 92% The Cabin in the Woods (2012) " Would you like your head thoroughly messed with? Then check straight into The Cabin in the Woods." — Independent
Posted Jan 8, 2013
3/5 86% A Dry White Season (1989) " A thumpingly didactic script, but Palcy has crafted a watchable - if not particularly important, given its competition - one." — Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 7, 2012
3/5 62% Lymelife (2008) " A slight feeling of déjà vu pervades its depiction of unhappy families. But it has a tender heart, and the imprimatur of Martin Scorsese as executive producer." — Independent
Posted May 11, 2012
3/5 56% Hunky Dory (2013) " The earnest playing of the orchestra and the lo-fi warbling touch the heart in a way that a more polished production might not." — Independent
Posted Apr 17, 2012
2/5 84% The Hunger Games (2012) " I know we're supposed to tut-tut about levels of cinematic violence, but this seems to me one of the rare occasions when the film needed to be bolder, and nastier." — Independent
Posted Mar 22, 2012
91% Arthur Christmas (2011) " Aardman films' yuletide offering is both a heartwarmer and a sly dig at the gospel of family togetherness." — Independent
Posted Dec 5, 2011
1/5 —— Tau chut (The First 7th Night) (2009) Independent
Posted Oct 28, 2011
4/5 76% We Need to Talk About Kevin (2012) " It's worth pointing out that Ramsay's film is a bold one in terms of current sensibilities." — Independent
Posted Oct 21, 2011
1/5 38% Monte Carlo (2011) " A dull fantasy-farce of luxe hotel suites, hot guys and product-placement jewellery, a pretty unappetising mix that the film tries to justify at the end with some blather about Romanian orphanages." — Independent
Posted Oct 21, 2011
2/5 60% Real Steel (2011) " Battling to be heard above the metal-on-metal clangour is a heartwarming (read: terribly soppy) story of a broken family." — Independent
Posted Oct 21, 2011
2/5 0% Reuniting The Rubins (2012) " Give me an oy. Give me a vey." — Independent
Posted Oct 21, 2011
1/5 36% Restless (2011) " The downward curve of Gus Van Sant's career continues with this awful slice of morbid whimsy." — Independent
Posted Oct 21, 2011
2/5 73% POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold (2011) " He gets celebrity interviewees to blah on the subject -- Ralph Nader, Noam Chomsky, Quentin Tarantino -- and still fails to dispel the mood of utter pointlessness." — Independent
Posted Oct 14, 2011
2/5 71% Footloose (2011) " The patent absurdity would be forgotten or at least forgiven if the songs and the moves were any good, but aside from the title track it's a sorry farrago of blandness." — Independent
Posted Oct 14, 2011
2/5 45% Albatross (2012) " Niall MacCormick's debut feature has a puppyish eagerness that doesn't quite deliver." — Independent
Posted Oct 14, 2011
1/5 24% The Three Musketeers (2011) " A dead cert for a slot in the Top Ten Worst of 2011." — Independent
Posted Oct 14, 2011
2/5 82% Dolphin Tale (2011) " Two hours of redemptive hugs, triumphant whoops and tearful smiles later we learn that pinning a tail on a dolphin is, on the scale of human achievement, not far behind winning the Nobel Peace Prize and discovering a cure for cancer." — Independent
Posted Oct 14, 2011
1/5 52% Perfect Sense (2012) Independent
Posted Oct 7, 2011
