Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
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
Posted May 20, 2010
2/5 57% Cemetery Junction (2010) " This tale has been told so many times that it demands a spark of invention or originality to spice things up, but Cemetery Junction sticks slavishly to story conventions, with nothing new or imaginative to say about the subject." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Apr 15, 2010
3.5/5 28% Clash of the Titans (2010) " It's loud, brash, brutal stuff on a scale hitherto unseen onscreen..." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Apr 1, 2010
3/5 47% MacGruber (2010) " When the film is funny, it's very funny." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Mar 22, 2010
5/5 76% Kick-Ass (2010) " You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll squeal in delight at the outrageous behaviour of a little girl in a purple cape. But most of all, you'll wish that all superhero movies were like this." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Mar 15, 2010
2/5 51% Alice in Wonderland (2010) " Suffering from a severe deficiency of wonder, this Alice is by turns loud, lifeless and lacklustre, and so what should have been the perfect marriage of moviemaker and material instead does justice to neither." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Mar 2, 2010
3.5/5 67% Daybreakers (2010) " A gripping feature that is just as likely to provoke thought as it is fear." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Jan 8, 2010
3.5/5 70% Sherlock Holmes (2009) " Sherlock Holmes is never less than entertaining throughout however, and the marvellous chemistry between the leads practically demands a sequel." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Jan 5, 2010
2/5 39% 2012 (2009) " It feels about 2012 minutes too long, a bloated epic that outstays its welcome long before the credits have rolled." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Nov 13, 2009
2.5 92% Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009) " Dahl aficionados will be disappointed at the Americanisation of it all, while Anderson fans will doubtless grow tired of the predictable nature of proceedings." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Oct 23, 2009
1/5 7% Whiteout (2009) " The sub-standard work from everyone involved means that Whiteout is very much a missed opportunity that undoubtedly would have been better left on the comic book page." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Sep 11, 2009
3/5 35% G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009) " In spite of many misgivings, including ropey CGI, convoluted storytelling and a smattering of horribly over-the-top performances, G.I. Joe is a blast from start-to-finish." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Aug 4, 2009
4/5 84% Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009) " It doesn't reach the magical heights of Alfonso Cuaron's truly spellbinding Prisoner of Azkaban, but Yates is fast approaching that territory, which bodes well for his helming of the final instalments." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Jul 10, 2009
4/5 68% Brüno (2009) " May be the funniest film of the year thus far, but it doesn't come close to reaching the comedic heights of his previous effort, Borat." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Jul 7, 2009
2/5 64% The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009) " With clumsy dialogue, poor plotting and some downright terrible performances, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is a huge disappointment for any fan of Terry Gilliam's work." — IGN Movies UK
Posted May 22, 2009
3.5/5 88% Inglourious Basterds (2009) " An entertaining yet uneven movie that provides comedy, drama and some interesting psychological twists and turns, but never quite delivers on that 'men on a mission' promise." — IGN Movies UK
Posted May 20, 2009
4/5 100% Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation (2003) " Given that copyright wrangles mean it may never get released, Adaptation is a covetable, Indy-worthy treasure in its own right." — IGN Movies UK
Posted May 13, 2009
5/5 98% Up (2009) " A near perfect feature, a thrilling combination of humour, pathos, action and drama. Utterly original, endlessly inventive, and brilliantly crafted to appeal to old and young alike, it may well be Pixar's finest feature yet." — IGN Movies UK
Posted May 13, 2009
3.5/5 37% Outlander (2009) " An excellent creature feature. A B movie in the best sense of the word, Outlander could teach many of the so-called summer blockbusters a thing or two about character, story and performance." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Apr 24, 2009
3.5/5 63% Crank 2: High Voltage (2009) " The Stath is pretty much the most bankable name in action movies today, and his unhinged work in High Voltage, indulging in an explosion of murder and mayhem with gusto and glee, should certainly see him retain that title." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Apr 17, 2009
4.5/5 92% Drag Me to Hell (2009) " It's a visceral assault on the senses and will have you gasping for breath as the laughs and scares mount. Raimi directs with the confidence and flair of a genre master." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Mar 28, 2009
3.5/5 94% The Damned United (2009) " An incredibly entertaining 95 minutes spent in the company of one of the game's most interesting characters, and a testament to the way in which friendship can save us in our darkest hour." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Mar 28, 2009
98% Anvil! The Story of Anvil (2009) " A truly uplifting 80 minutes of film, you owe it to yourselves to check out The Story of Anvil, and you then owe it to the band to buy their albums and help put them back where they belong - at the summit of mount metal." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Feb 19, 2009
3/5 83% Tropic Thunder (2008) " The first hour of the film has an energy and wit that makes it a joy to behold, but as Stiller tries to tie it all together into a cohesive hole, the humour drains from the piece, and it all becomes a little tiresome." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Sep 19, 2008
4/5 83% Heavy Metal in Baghdad (2008) " Heavy Metal in Baghdad is one of those sneaky documentaries that starts out a light-hearted look at a semi-serious subject, and then suddenly turns into something far more moving and profound." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Sep 12, 2008
4/5 59% RocknRolla (2008) " He's hardly re-inventing the wheel with this movie, but RocknRolla is nonetheless a comedy thriller that is every bit as accomplished as his early work, and without doubt an witty, adrenalin-fuelled blast from start to finish." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Sep 5, 2008
4.5/5 100% Man on Wire (2008) " It's an incredible story, and in Man on Wire, Marsh has made a documentary that's worthy of his walk." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Aug 1, 2008
3/5 50% Cass (2008) " A mature take on this most contentious of issues, and quite possibly the best film on the subject in 20 years." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Aug 1, 2008
4/10 41% Hancock (2008) " Yet because it's Smith, you know that Hancock can't be all bad, and as the film spends the next hour trying to rehabilitate him, proceedings slowly starts to fall apart." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Jul 2, 2008
85% In Search of a Midnight Kiss (2008) " Obviously heavily influenced by the likes of Swingers and Before Sunrise, it nevertheless manages to find its own voice, combining sentiment with cynicism to create a very modern romantic comedy." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Jun 12, 2008
17% The Happening (2008) " Somewhere in The Happening there's a great movie struggling to break free. The concept is fantastic... but poor dialogue combined with even worse performances make for a disappointing and frustrating 90 minutes of film." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Jun 12, 2008
4/5 96% Persepolis (2007) " Persepolis makes this most difficult of subjects at once watchable, accesible, and ultimately unforgettable." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Apr 25, 2008
91% I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK (Saibogujiman kwenchana) (2006) " A confusing mess of a movie that lacks the marvellously sharp structure and cohesion of his previous efforts." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Apr 6, 2008
3.5/5 71% W Delta Z (The Killing Gene) (2008) " The most unusual and original horror film to be made on these isles in many a year." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Feb 22, 2008
3.5/5 94% Juno (2007) " Heart-warming, thought-provoking and beautifully played, it that tackles a serious subject with sensitivity and grace while providing more than a few laughs along the way." — IGN Movies UK
Posted Feb 8, 2008
89% Starter for 10 (2006) " This is expertly crafted entertainment that follows all the beats of a traditional romantic comedy, but it's done with such sincerity that it's difficult to begrudge the odd descent into cliché." — Time Out
Posted Sep 22, 2007
12% Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006) " Oppressive, mean-spirited and sadistic, The Beginning is an unsavoury exercise in cruelty and pain that one hopes will also be the end." — Time Out
Posted Oct 28, 2006
63% Clerks II (2006) " While the film is rude and raucous throughout, it doesn't have a bad bone in its body, providing a joyous, celebratory swansong for the beloved characters." — Time Out
Posted Sep 21, 2006
82% Once in a Lifetime: The Extraordinary Story of the New York Cosmos (2006) " An entertaining documentary that won't change the world, but should leave you spellbound for 90 minutes." — Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
50% The Hills Have Eyes (2006) " A rather pointless exercise that reinforces the age-old adage 'If it ain't broke, don't remake it'." — Time Out
Posted Mar 9, 2006
34% 3 Needles (2006) " A powerful piece, 3 Needles ultimately fails to cohere as narrative, but there can be few more compassionate films playing at the festival this year." — Time Out
Posted Feb 9, 2006
65% Coach Carter (2005) " Although this is an inspirational genre pic that pushes all the requisite buttons throughout, you canâ(TM)t help but feel that rather than benching the team, director Thomas Carter should have benched a few of those ham-fisted sporting clichà (C)s instead." — Time Out
