Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 76% Goosebumps (2015) "Goosebumps combines cynicism with sweetness. If you can get past the slow start, woefully blank hero Zach (Dylan Minnette), and hit-and-miss special effects, you'll be charmed. " ‐ This is London
Posted Feb 7, 2016
3/5 72% Trumbo (2015) "One day, perhaps, an HBO mini-series will tackle this cultural face-off and blow our minds. In the meantime, check out Trumbo. " ‐ This is London
Posted Feb 7, 2016
1/5 9% Dirty Grandpa (2016) "Its horrible message: the old are only interesting when they're capable of aping the young. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jan 31, 2016
3/5 72% Youth (2015) "Sorrentino wants to say something profound about illnesses that bury loved ones alive. But the pompous lines kill the mood. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jan 31, 2016
4/5 33% Our Brand is Crisis (2015) "Bullock is hilarious as well as unsettling in the lead. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jan 23, 2016
3/5 94% Creed (2015) "Creed is a sure-fire hit that's impossible to hate but I may have to punch the next person who tells me it made them cry. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jan 18, 2016
4/5 96% Room (2015) "Larson delivers every line to perfection and, as it happens, there's not one weak link in the cast. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jan 18, 2016
88% A War (Krigen) (2016) "Like the anti-war saga In the Valley of Elah, A War explores a misuse of power that has horrific consequences. What's different is that here the crime takes place under our noses and, even more disturbingly, feels justified. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jan 8, 2016
4/5 81% Bolshoi Babylon (2015) "Given the circumstances, Read has done a wonderful job. Instead of promoting or smearing a celebrated brand he's created a portrait of a workplace that feels both pertinent to Putin's Russia and universal. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jan 8, 2016
87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) "The voices are too gloopy, Linus has been given an unnecessary hair transplant and, worst of all, Snoopy's plot thread (technically a story-within-a-story) is dull and dodgy. " ‐ This is London
Posted Dec 27, 2015
4/5 100% Sherpa (2015) "The landscapes are gorgeous; the ironies stark. " ‐ This is London
Posted Dec 27, 2015
2/5 43% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) "The huge, whale-sized problem is that Howard can't decide if this is dark, adult fare or a rollicking tale of derring-do. " ‐ This is London
Posted Dec 27, 2015
3/5 82% Sunset Song (2016) "I love nature but halfway through Sunset Song I began to suffer from field fatigue. Cinematographer Michael McDonough shoots the soil and its various fruits with reverence - too much reverence. " ‐ This is London
Posted Dec 13, 2015
3/5 100% Chemsex "It's a pleasure and an honour to spend time with the interviewees (Miguel, Enrique and Simon are especially adorable, articulate and open) but there's something disingenuous about Chemsex. " ‐ This is London
Posted Dec 13, 2015
4/5 60% Sisters (2015) "The set pieces combine great performances with slyly clever writing. " ‐ This is London
Posted Dec 13, 2015
4/5 91% Grandma (2015) "Were Oscar voters to nominate Tomlin for a Best Actress award, it would definitely cause waves. Here's hoping. " ‐ This is London
Posted Dec 13, 2015
42% Love (2015) "After a slow start Noé's self-referential soap proves more-ish. " ‐ This is London
Posted Nov 22, 2015
2/5 65% The Dressmaker "Moorhouse, apparently convinced that viewers can't handle a mature female heroine, has made a movie that feels infinitely more antiquated than Billy Wilder's 1950 film noir. " ‐ This is London
Posted Nov 22, 2015
2/5 11% Fathers And Daughters "Crowe, Rogers and Wallis somehow maintain their dignity throughout this piffle. The same can't be said for Seyfried. " ‐ This is London
Posted Nov 16, 2015
4/5 85% Steve Jobs (2015) "Sometimes Fassbender's face is rigid with tension. Elsewhere he's loosey goosey. What's uncanny is that despite no prosthetics being used he never looks like himself. " ‐ This is London
Posted Nov 16, 2015
2/5 29% Burnt (2015) "Burnt wants to be viewed as a post-modern, emotionally hardcore odyssey; a foodie version of Birdman. At once too earnest and too glossily daft to measure up, it's actually closer in mood to an Eighties Agatha Christie TV special. " ‐ This is London
Posted Nov 6, 2015
33% Kill Your Friends "Hoult (the film's executive producer) is either miscast, the victim of terrible direction or trying to convey, through a lacklustre performance, that his faith in the material was misplaced. " ‐ This is London
Posted Nov 6, 2015
4/5 90% Mississippi Grind (2015) "Mendelsohn seems at ease on the razor's edge that divides the radiant from the wretched. " ‐ This is London
Posted Oct 25, 2015

Posted Oct 18, 2015
4/5 69% Crimson Peak (2015) "A period drama that doesn't rely on heaving bosoms to register passion. " ‐ This is London
Posted Oct 18, 2015
3/5 64% The Program (2016) "Stephen Frears's fictional take on the Lance Armstrong story is even-handed, witty and shot with verve. " ‐ This is London
Posted Oct 18, 2015
26% Pan (2015) "What a way to mess up a back story. " ‐ This is London
Posted Oct 18, 2015
91% Beasts of No Nation (2015) "A great movie. " ‐ This is London
Posted Oct 11, 2015
4/5 80% Macbeth (2015) "The script, basically, is obsessed with dead, dying or doomed kids and, thanks to the chemistry between the big names and the young cast, the effect is intense. " ‐ This is London
Posted Oct 4, 2015
3/5 85% The Walk (2015) "Initially a toe-curling mix of The Pink Panther and Amélie, this fable ultimately offers pure entertainment. Life of Pi in the sky. " ‐ This is London
Posted Oct 4, 2015
4/5 92% 99 Homes (2015) "Ordinary people aren't dumb, Bahrani suggests, but the majority are under-educated. If we're serious about survival, we need to wise up. " ‐ This is London

Posted Sep 18, 2015
4/5 100% A Syrian Love Story "As in all the best movies, you can't see the twists coming. And there are an awful lots of twists. " ‐ This is London
Posted Sep 18, 2015
3/5 42% Irrational Man (2015) "It could be worse. " ‐ This is London
Posted Sep 11, 2015
3/5 63% The Visit (2015) "Breaking news: M Night Shyamalan has made a film that's not rubbish. " ‐ This is London
Posted Sep 11, 2015
3/5 62% Legend (2015) "Hardy often picks parts that camouflage his looks and/or swagger. What's different about Legend is that all the 37-year-old's qualities are on display. He's perfect as Reg. His Ron is just as gripping. " ‐ This is London
Posted Sep 11, 2015
4/5 99% Shaun the Sheep Movie (2015) "Shaun will awaken the inner-tot in adults, and the inner-adult in tots. " ‐ This is London
Posted Aug 31, 2015
3/5 88% Straight Outta Compton (2015) "The young cast are so convincing on stage it's easy to forget you're not watching the real thing. " ‐ This is London
Posted Aug 30, 2015
2/5 41% We Are Your Friends (2015) "Bentley is on great form. If anything, though, he's too good. Every time he disappears, the music dies. " ‐ This is London
Posted Aug 30, 2015
3/5 13% Sinister 2 (2015) "Like Roger Corman's The Pit and the Pendulum, Sinister 2 cheerfully tries to make sense of where sadism springs from. " ‐ This is London
Posted Aug 21, 2015
2/5 51% Gemma Bovery (2015) "Poor Arterton. She's genuinely gifted, but comes across as a lightweight. " ‐ This is London
Posted Aug 21, 2015
89% The Simpsons Movie (2007) "The big-screen Simpsons are mildly entertaining, but too much of this is as flabby as Homer's belly. " ‐ This is London
Posted Aug 2, 2015
2/5 8% The Cobbler (2015) "Sandler had an opportunity to explore ethnicity, family and morality. He botches the whole thing. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jul 31, 2015
2/5 7% Hot Pursuit (2015) "It ostensibly shows two polar opposites transcending stereotypes to finding common ground but is so lazy, laboured and retrograde that I winced throughout. I'm still wincing now! " ‐ This is London
Posted Jul 31, 2015
2/5 60% Southpaw (2015) "Perhaps overly keen to emulate his hero's turn in Raging Bull, Gyllenhaal puts too much faith in the idea that size matters. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jul 24, 2015
4/5 57% Barney Thomson (The Legend of Barney Thomson) (2016) "Don't listen to the haters. Cross-border collaborations can work. " ‐ This is London
Posted Jul 24, 2015
86% Inception (2010) "Inception is the kind of information-packed movie that creates the painful/pleasurable sensation that there's no time to think. " ‐ This is London
