Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
3/5 68% One Chance (2014) " There are no great surprises or sophistication in One Chance but it works. It is formulaic and cheesy but also funny, touching and pretty irresistible." — Daily Express
Posted Oct 25, 2013
4/5 92% Skyfall (2012) " Thrilling opening sequence with implausible feats of derringdo? Check. Scenery chewing psychopathic villain? Check." — Daily Express
Posted Oct 13, 2012
3/5 83% Berberian Sound Studio (2013) " The fun of the film lies in the tricks of the trade used before the age of computers and digital effects and older viewers will feel a shiver of nostalgia at the sight of celluloid, magnetic tape and reel-to-reel recorders." — Daily Express
Posted Aug 30, 2012
1/5 17% A Few Best Men " Director Stephan Elliott made The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert but here he doesn't seem to know his farce from his elbow." — Daily Express
Posted Aug 30, 2012
3/5 70% Cockneys vs Zombies (2013) " It's not exactly The Walking Dead or even Shaun Of The Dead but it knows its limitations and those old favourites are game for a laugh." — Daily Express
Posted Aug 30, 2012
3/5 77% Samsara (2012) " It weaves together incredibly beautiful images of everything that makes the world go around." — Daily Express
Posted Aug 30, 2012
2/5 46% Soul Surfer (2011) " The film is sincere and even a little sanctimonious in the way it depicts Hamilton's family, strong Christian values and work with post-tsunami orphans in Phuket." — Daily Express
Posted Sep 23, 2011
2/5 25% Killer Elite (2011) " This is the kind of clunky, badly-written action thriller that you would expect to head straight to DVD." — Daily Express
Posted Sep 23, 2011
77% A Lonely Place to Die (2012) " This is a tough, no-nonsense tale made all the more effective by its brutal landscapes." — Daily Express
Posted Sep 9, 2011
5/5 100% Kes (1969) " A film that captures Loach's ability to find the extraordinary drama in ordinary lives." — Daily Express
Posted Sep 9, 2011
3/5 92% The Light Thief (Svet-Ake) " The genial satire of the early scenes eventually gives way to bitter tragedy in a quixotic but charming salute to an irrepressible dreamer." — Daily Express
Posted Jul 31, 2011
51% Holy Rollers (2010) " Holy Rollers is based on true events but it lacks any spark of originality." — Daily Express
Posted Jul 8, 2011
84% The Princess Of Montpensier (2011) " An intelligent, historical epic with a vigorous modern sweep." — Daily Express
Posted Jul 8, 2011
58% Film socialisme (2011) " To my mind the whole experience felt like trying to tune into a radio station and only hearing static." — Daily Express
Posted Jul 8, 2011
14% Huge " Huge is painfully unfunny and desperately unconvincing." — Daily Express
Posted Jul 8, 2011
78% Trust (2011) " This is all very worthy and well acted but it does feel like a cautionary tale designed to provoke classroom debate." — Daily Express
Posted Jul 8, 2011
84% The Tree of Life (2011) " The Tree Of Life is far from perfect but it is a film of great beauty and longing: a philosophical rummage through the troubling memories of a lost America." — Daily Express
Posted Jul 8, 2011
3/5 43% Mother's Day (2012) " Too many characters and plot twists dilute the intensity of Mother's Day but there is no denying the effectiveness of De Mornay's ferocious performance." — Daily Express
Posted Jun 10, 2011
4/5 81% Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011) " The animation is five-star all the way but the plot has a good deal less "awesomeness" than the original." — Daily Express
Posted Jun 10, 2011
4/5 91% Point Blank (2011) " CavayĆ© stays in top gear throughout revealing the muscularity of a Bourne thriller as he serves up car chases, narrow escapes, surprise twists and shocking betrayals." — Daily Express
Posted Jun 10, 2011
2/5 10% Honey 2 (2012) " The dance sequences have a certain energy and aggressiveness but the plot is predictable, the performances are bland and the dialogue makes your toes curl." — Daily Express
Posted Jun 10, 2011
3/5 59% Kaboom (2011) " A delirious, demented cross between Donnie Darko and Twin Peaks with an undeniably handsome cast and a good deal of film-making skill. Don't expect it to make a lot of sense but just enjoy the wild trip." — Daily Express
Posted Jun 10, 2011
85% Cedar Rapids (2011) " What makes it work is the real sense of warmth and affection that grows between the characters, lending the film an appealing sweetness that has become all too rare in American comedy." — Daily Express
Posted Apr 29, 2011
13% The Ugly Truth (2009) " Everything about The Ugly Truth is so laboured and predictable that it feels as if a computer programme must have been involved in its creation." — Daily Express
Posted Aug 7, 2009
83% Hide (2008) " Moody, minimalist and well-observed this is a quirky low-budget triumph for director Marek Losey." — Daily Express
Posted Jun 5, 2009
93% Sugar (2008) " Sugar is a slow-burning exploration of the immigrant experience that grows more compelling as Miguel starts to realise he might not be good enough to realise his dream." — Daily Express
Posted Jun 5, 2009
80% Max Manus: Man of War (2010) " A stirring tribute to the wartime sacrifices made in the name of a just cause." — Daily Express
Posted Jun 5, 2009
25% Shadows in the Sun (2009) " Shadows is an understated tale that could have used a little more fire but Simmons' presence helps to make it touching." — Daily Express
Posted Jun 5, 2009
79% Pour elle (Anything for Her) (2008) " An efficient, highly polished potboiler that rattles along without permitting the viewer any time to ponder the implausible plot." — Daily Express
Posted Jun 5, 2009
71% Last Chance Harvey (2009) " A delightful confection that leaves you with a great big smile of contentment." — Daily Express
Posted Jun 5, 2009
33% Terminator Salvation (2009) " If you can just savour the spectacle and not worry about the tangled plot then it is a more than acceptable summer blockbuster." — Daily Express
Posted Jun 5, 2009
68% Synecdoche, New York (2008) " It is not the kind of film you can quickly consume and easily forget; it requires patience and dedication but the rewards are worth it." — Daily Express
