Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 81% Far From the Madding Crowd (2015) " Bathsheba should be more than a dress-up doll, and the rest more than a potboiler. Lost in the gloss is Hardy's weirdness, and with it half his greatness. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Apr 30, 2015
3/5 74% The Congress (2014) " The result is a film of two halves, though possibly more. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 14, 2014
3/5 71% Dinosaur 13 (2014) " A documentary about the place where science meets the profit motive and the US legal system is at its most palpably crackers. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 14, 2014
2/5 33% The Expendables 3 (2014) " Plot exposition is delivered by Stallone over random detonations. My kingdom for an ear trumpet? " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 14, 2014
4/5 65% The Rover (2014) " Brutal as it is, The Rover evolves into a strange kind of buddy movie. Squint and you might be watching a nihilistic Rain Man. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 14, 2014
3/5 54% Blood Ties (2014) " Blood Ties has a heart of plastic. Yet there's a sturdiness to the script, and the performances are real enough to crackle. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 14, 2014
4/5 95% To Catch a Thief (1955) " The whole thing is really a condensed summer holiday, all hot sun and suavity. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 7, 2014
3/5 69% The Inbetweeners Movie 2 " Writer-directors Damon Beesley and Iain Morris manage to expand one hallmark, a gift for the grossest of gross-out, without diminishing the other - an essential sweetness of spirit. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 7, 2014
3/5 73% The German Doctor (2014) " If the film is better as understated horror than historical drama, its taut last seconds encompass both. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 7, 2014
2/5 36% God's Pocket (2014) " For all its vim, the film tries to have its steak and eat it by scolding those who patronise the working man - then getting him drunk and watching him fall over. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 7, 2014
4/5 76% Welcome To New York (2015) " The surface might seem chaotic, but beneath is structural precision. Shot with a maestro's skillset, Welcome to New York is worth it for the light show alone, Manhattan awash in morning gold, infernal red, inky small-hours blue. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 7, 2014
3/5 81% Lilting (2014) " Lilting can feel like an airtight glass box, but the figures inside it are vividly alive. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 7, 2014
3/5 61% Heli (2014) " Soon, the stylistic flourishes don't just seem self-conscious but cribbed, karaoke shades of Nuri Bilge Ceylan and Harmony Korine. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted May 22, 2014
3/5 88% The Punk Singer (2013) " Initially held together by grainy VHS footage and cuttings from old fanzines, the film is gifted with a protagonist of endless brio and a cultural backdrop just distant enough to feel forgotten. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted May 22, 2014
3/5 91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) " In a film at one with its own absurdity, near-camp delirium is the strongest suit. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted May 22, 2014
2/5 54% Fading Gigolo (2014) " Allen, oddly, is delightful - every crumpled line-reading flawlessly timed. Otherwise, the rhythm is so off that if you tried to dance to it you would turn an ankle. " ‐ Financial Times
