Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
7/10 85% 22 Jump Street (2014) " If you liked 21 Jump Street, you'll like 22 Jump Street, because it's pretty much the same movie." — IGN Movies
Posted Jun 3, 2014
7.5/10 90% Edge of Tomorrow (2014) " Thanks to brisk direction from Doug Liman and some clever plotting, said repetition never becomes predictable." — IGN Movies
Posted May 30, 2014
7.8/10 69% They Came Together (2014) " A film that's as funny as it is silly, twisting every cliché in the rom-com cannon to impressive effect, so much so that you'll never be able to look at a Katherine Heigl movie in the same way again." — IGN Movies
Posted May 7, 2014
7.5/10 75% Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014) " Nymphomaniac is brave, thought-provoking filmmaking from a genuine auteur." — IGN Movies
Posted May 2, 2014
6.8/10 89% Locke (2014) " Its star delivers a note-perfect performance that saves the film from its own shortcomings, with Tom Hardy once again proving himself to be one of the finest actors of his generation." — IGN Movies
Posted Apr 18, 2014
8.3/10 98% Starred Up (2014) " Powerful and intelligent filmmaking that demands to be seen." — IGN Movies
Posted Mar 21, 2014
7.4/10 —— Predestination " Predestination has a few flaws in terms of story and structure, but for the most part it's a challenging and frequently thrilling time-travel yarn that will have you scratching you head for days." — IGN Movies
Posted Mar 12, 2014
8.3/10 88% Frank (2014) " If you're willing to go with that - an affectionate character study of a bloke in a massive papier mache head - you'll find Frank to be a richly rewarding film, and the title character to be one you can't help but fall in love with." — IGN Movies
Posted Mar 12, 2014
7.8/10 78% From Dusk Till Dawn: Season 1 " On this evidence, From Dusk Till Dawn has made a healthy transition from big screen to small. " — IGN Movies
Posted Mar 12, 2014
8.5/10 86% Under the Skin (2014) " In refusing to spoon-feed the audience information, Glazer's film instead burrows into the brain, the ambiguous nature of proceedings making it all-the-more beguiling. The result is a film that's hard to shake after the credits have rolled. " — IGN Movies
Posted Mar 10, 2014
9.2/10 92% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) " [It] feels like Wes Anderson's most heartfelt film thus far. One that effortlessly straddles genres and works as both a nostalgic paean to a more innocent time and an examination of the very nature of storytelling itself. " — IGN Movies
Posted Mar 5, 2014
7/10 41% 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) " Rise of an Empire is a sumptuous feast for the eyes that's a worthy sequel to the action classic that doesn't improve on the formula, but does entertain for the majority of its run-time." — IGN Movies
Posted Mar 5, 2014
6.8/10 85% Only Lovers Left Alive (2014) " While Jarmusch's vision is an original take on the genre, it's also hard to fully engage with his efforts, the pace too stately, the script too self-conscious, and the initially intriguing characters ultimately outstaying their welcome." — IGN Movies
Posted Feb 18, 2014
6.9/10 49% RoboCop (2014) " While Padilha and his team are to be admired for bringing the concept up-to-date and addressing concerns about drones [etc.]... they've taken much of the fun out of the concept, making for a po-faced and ultimately somewhat forgettable Robocop movie." — IGN Movies
Posted Feb 6, 2014
8.5/10 82% Grand Piano (2014) " The best movie that Alfred Hitchcock never made, Grand Piano is a wild ride that features several enjoyably silly twists and turns and a grandstanding central performance from Elijah Wood." — IGN Movies
Posted Feb 5, 2014
9/10 88% Cheap Thrills (2014) " Simple, effective and consistently provocative, Cheap Thrills is a masterful debut from a director to watch." — IGN Movies
Posted Jan 21, 2014
6.5/10 88% A Field in England (2014) " Entertaining, frustrating and annoying in equal measure." — IGN Movies
Posted Jan 17, 2014
8.3/10 95% An Adventure in Space and Time " This hugely entertaining account of Doctor Who's beginnings should appeal to casual and hardcore fans alike." — IGN Movies
Posted Jan 7, 2014
8/10 89% Rush (2013) " One of the best looking and sounding films of the year on top of being one of the most exciting." — IGN Movies
Posted Dec 31, 2013
6.8/10 65% Thor: The Dark World (2013) " The result is a good Thor movie when post-Avengers we wanted a great one." — IGN Movies
Posted Dec 18, 2013
7/10 60% Ender's Game (2013) " The result is a thought-provoking flick that's smarter than the average blockbuster, but one that never quite fulfills the potential of the book on which it is based." — IGN Movies
Posted Oct 24, 2013
9.2/10 63% Filth (2014) " If you aren't squeamish, Filth is a marvelously messed up festive flick that manages to be shocking, hilarious and ultimately quite poignant." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Oct 23, 2013
7.4/10 71% Zero Charisma (2013) " A fun flick about table-top gaming culture and the challenges of being a geek in the modern age." — IGN Movies
Posted Oct 10, 2013
7.5/10 29% Machete Kills (2013) " Machete Kills is a blast of bad taste that entertains for the majority of its run-time." — IGN Movies
Posted Oct 9, 2013
8.5/10 74% You're Next (2013) " A film made by people who clearly love the genre and have skillfully taken a simple premise and infused it with laughs and scares to craft what may be the most downright entertaining horror film of the year." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Aug 20, 2013
7.5/10 29% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) " While it doesn't reach the dizzy heights of its predecessor, Kick-Ass 2 is nevertheless a hugely entertaining comic boom movie that's nastier and funnier than your average superhero flick." — IGN Movies
Posted Aug 15, 2013
8.5/10 68% Elysium (2013) " Neill Blomkamp's sophmore effort proves that District 9 was no fluke, with Elysium the kind of exciting and intelligent entertainment that's been sorely missing from the summer movie season." — IGN Movies
Posted Aug 3, 2013
9/10 78% Iron Man 3 (2013) " [The film] expertly melds action, comedy and drama to become the finest Iron Man movie yet." — IGN Movies
Posted Apr 24, 2013
6.6/10 54% Oblivion (2013) " While a noble effort in terms of scale and ambition, Oblivion entertains only sporadically. There's a great film somewhere in there, but this isn't it." — IGN Movies
Posted Apr 18, 2013
9/10 62% Evil Dead (2013) " While it doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel, this new take on the Evil Dead is every bit as good as Sam Raimi's originals, and praise doesn't get much higher than that." — IGN Movies
Posted Mar 11, 2013
6.2/10 14% A Good Day To Die Hard (2013) " While it may not be time for McClane to hang up his vest just yet, the formula is starting to seem tired, and it feels like the end might be approaching for this particular franchise." — IGN Movies
Posted Feb 13, 2013
61% John Dies at the End (2013) " When it works, however, it's a gripping thrill-ride that also serves as a timely reminder of the unique talents of Don Coscarelli, one of our most interesting filmmakers, and one who can't be allowed to go another 10 years between features." — IGN Movies
Posted Jan 4, 2013
6/10 51% Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning (2012) " An entertaining Universal Soldier movie that dares to try something different." — IGN Movies
Posted Nov 30, 2012
5.5/10 12% Red Dawn (2012) " The Red Dawn remake has sat on the shelf for two years, and maybe it should have stayed there." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Nov 20, 2012
4.5/10 5% Silent Hill: Revelation (2012) " Silent Hill Revelation 3D is an inferior sequel in every way, shape and form, a horror sequel that fails to either intrigue or scare, and one that just might have killed the franchise cold-dead." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Oct 26, 2012
24% Paranormal Activity 4 (2012) " The film does deliver on scares, and at a time when so few Hollywood horrors succeed on that front, we should grateful for the consistency of the Paranormal Activity films." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Sep 27, 2012
4/5 93% Indie Game: The Movie (2012) " Indie Game provides a gripping and consistently entertaining insight into this unique sub-set of the games industry." — IGN Movies
Posted May 29, 2012
4/5 63% Sinister (2012) " While Sinister is hardly a game-changer, it is an extremely effective horror feature; one that creates its own highly original mythology, and wholeheartedly terrifies from start-to-finish." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Mar 13, 2012
4/5 85% 21 Jump Street (2012) " A smart and immensely entertaining comedy that announces the somewhat surprising arrival of a serious comic talent in the shape of Channing Tatum." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Mar 6, 2012
3/5 82% Goon (2012) " Goon is a surprise on pretty much all fronts, following the story beats you'd expect of a film of this genre, yet delivering them in an enjoyably unusual and offbeat manner. " — IGN Movies UK
Posted Feb 24, 2012
3/5 75% The Adventures of Tintin (2011) " While this may not be the perfect Tintin adaptation, it's nevertheless an entertaining one; a film that honours the charm and spirit of the books, and one that should please fans and newcomers alike. " — IGN Movies UK
Posted Oct 18, 2011
4/5 68% Paranormal Activity 3 (2011) " While it lacks the narrative cohesion of its predecessors, it surpasses them in terms of tension and scares." — IGN Movies
Posted Sep 30, 2011
4/5 96% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 (2011) " It's with a heavy heart that we say good-bye to Harry Potter, but in crafting what may well be the best blockbuster of the season, the boy wizard has gone out with a suitably spellbinding bang, and one that will leave a lasting impression on cinemagoers." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Jul 12, 2011
2.5/5 33% Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011) " One can't help but feel that the Disney-Depp partnership has taken the series as far as it can go in this form, and short of a large-scale overhaul of the franchise, it may be best to set these particular Pirates adrift for good." — IGN Movies
Posted May 16, 2011
3/5 60% The Beaver (2011) " If you take [Gibson's] performance on its own merits, it's one of the finest of his career; touching, terrifying and admirably understated throughout. " — IGN Movies
Posted May 2, 2011
2.5/5 90% Bridesmaids (2011) " It's funny stuff, with Wiig's talent for physical comedy and way with a witty put-down providing many of the film's highlights." — IGN Movies
Posted Mar 25, 2011
3/5 78% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010) " While it's by no means a bad Harry Potter movie, the overriding feeling is that it's an incomplete one. Here's hoping that Yates and his team put that right next summer." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Nov 11, 2010
4/5 71% Red (2010) " Red is long, predictable, derivative, and without doubt one of the most entertaining experiences to be had in a cinema this year." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Oct 4, 2010
3.5/5 64% Predators (2010) " Let's be honest: you see a Predator movie for the bone-crunching battles between alien and man, and on that front, Antal's film delivers in spades, with blood spilled, spines split and heads separated from bodies at regular intervals." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Jul 8, 2010
3/5 36% Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010) " While it's beautifully shot, well performed and undoubtedly fun to watch, it all feels somewhat soulless; calculated to tick every blockbuster box rather than to create something new and original." — IGN Movies UK
