Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 34% Two Night Stand (2014) "The makers were aiming for a how-we-date-now rom-com. Instead, they've made a film that might have seemed hip 10 years back but now seems dated, cold and cynical. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]
Posted Feb 20, 2015
4/5 94% Love Is Strange (2014) "There's lots of charm, from the looks Ben and George give one another, to the easiness of their shared company. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]
Posted Feb 20, 2015
5/5 96% It Follows (2015) "A sense of dread envelopes every scene thanks to combination of Mitchell's slow, measured tracking shots and the stunning score from Disasterpeace. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]
Posted Feb 19, 2015
3/5 25% Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) "Taylor-Johnson has made a film that is both sexy and stylish. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]
Posted Feb 19, 2015
4/5 100% Shaun the Sheep (2015) "It doesn't scale the same heights of the studio's Wallace and Gromit movies but is guaranteed to delight the children. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]
Posted Feb 13, 2015
1/5 25% Jupiter Ascending (2015) "The only things likely to ascend during the Wachowskis' latest sci-fi soap opera will be your eyes, which may actually swivel in exasperation up and over, allowing you to see your own brain. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Feb 6, 2015
2/5 63% Son of a Gun (2015) "Although the hectic genre-swapping action should keep you marginally entertained, you'll be able to guess precisely what's going to happen long before it actually does. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 30, 2015
2/5 90% Wild (2014) "It's not a particularly interesting journey - although the scenery is terrific - and the movie's flow is constantly interrupted by some jarring flashbacks, with Laura Dern playing the hiker's mother. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 16, 2015
94% Whiplash (2014) "Compelling, compulsive and excruciatingly funny, you can't take your eyes off the screen. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 16, 2015
3/5 73% American Sniper (2015) "Eastwood is still making great films, with the 84-year-old's recent resumé including such historical treats as Changeling, Jersey Boys and Invictus. But, unfortunately, this isn't one of his finest moments. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 16, 2015
4/5 96% Argo (2012) "Much like his earlier directorial efforts, Gone Baby Gone and The Town, Affleck delivers a blockbuster with brains that's populated by nicely rounded characters. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]
Posted Jan 13, 2015
5/5 96% 12 Years a Slave (2013) "12 Years A Slave is a powerful, moving and intelligently unsentimental tale that is engrossing and memorable. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 13, 2015
4/5 91% Locke (2014) "The spare scenario may not sound inspiring, but Locke's attempts to keep his life from unraveling during a series of telephone calls make for a suspenseful and impressive experience. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 5, 2015
3/5 80% The Theory of Everything (2014) "It looks and feels like utter cornball but the sheer commitment of the stars makes the whole thing deeply watchable. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 5, 2015
3/5 89% The Drop (2014) "The plot, setting and supposed twists are all mightily familiar but it's worth a punt due to Tom Hardy and the late James Gandolfini. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]
Posted Jan 5, 2015
85% Under the Skin (2014) "This is an intelligent and classy film, part sci-fi, part horror and part thriller that shows just how good an actress Johansson can be when given the chance. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]
Posted Jan 5, 2015
3/5 89% The Imitation Game (2014) "It's a well told but somewhat unexciting and placid little movie that, despite the star wattage, you'd expect to catch on a Sunday afternoon on BBC2. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]
Posted Jan 4, 2015
4/5 92% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) "Like most of Anderson's films -- and Gustave himself -- the film is rather pleased with itself, but its exuberant humour and pacy plot keep it accessible while Fiennes delivers his funniest role ever. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 2, 2015
2/5 92% Birdman (2014) "A self-indulgent and generally tedious luvvie comedy where smug has been substituted for smart. It's a bit like those mediocre films pumped out by Woody Allen in the 90s. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Jan 2, 2015
5/5 61% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) "The third and final instalment in the all-conquering series has got everything -- an engrossing story, a near-overdose of thrills and spills, and a cast of uniquely memorable characters. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Dec 16, 2014
2/5 78% Electricity "Sparks fail to fly in an original but meandering and uninvolving drama, starring Agyness Deyn as a young woman prone to increasingly dangerous epileptic fits. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Dec 12, 2014
3/5 59% I Am Ali (2014) "Any movie about one of sport's most intriguing and heroic characters is never going to be dull. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Nov 28, 2014
2/5 35% Horrible Bosses 2 (2014) "Calling it unfunny doesn't quite do it. It's as if the writers set out to make a movie to actively offend anyone with a sense of humour. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Nov 28, 2014
5/5 98% Paddington (2015) "Paddington isn't just the film of the year, it might actually be one of the finest family films ever made. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Nov 28, 2014
1/5 23% Third Person (2014) "What does it all mean? Not very much, I suspect, with the cast sombrely delivering lines about trust and frailty while starring broodily into the middle distance. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]
Posted Nov 14, 2014
1/5 11% Nativity 3: Dude Where's My Donkey? "It's more a case of dude, where are the laughs as the hit British comedy series returns for a third, unwelcome installment. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]
Posted Nov 14, 2014
3/5 65% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) "It might make economic sense for Lionsgate Pictures to carve the novel in two but it means this movie is all built-up with a distinct lack of excitement. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Nov 11, 2014
5/5 98% Mr. Turner (2014) "I confidently predict Timothy Spall will be lifting a Bafta, if not an Oscar, for his brilliant performance as 19th-century painter JMW Turner in this affecting biopic. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Oct 31, 2014

Posted Oct 24, 2014
4/5 73% Palo Alto (2014) "The story tends to meander but the kids' ups and downs are delicately observed and the performances, especially from Roberts, are never less than believable. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]
Posted Oct 17, 2014
2/5 8% The Best Of Me (2014) "Bad boy meets good girl, families get in the way and tragedy follows before the emotionally-contrived ending. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]
Posted Oct 17, 2014
2/5 67% Dolphin Tale 2 (2014) "A shapeless and aimless film is padded out by a trite coming-of-age plot involving Nathan Gamble as Sawyer. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]
Posted Oct 3, 2014

85% Tony Benn: Will and Testament "The late, great Labour maverick is examined in an engrossing and affectionate documentary bound to be lapped up by audiences from across the political spectrum. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]
Posted Oct 3, 2014
4/5 88% Gone Girl (2014) "Mostly a very clever and always watchable whodunit. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Oct 3, 2014

Posted Sep 19, 2014
4/5 65% A Walk Among the Tombstones (2014) "Liam Neeson is a cynical gumshoe tasked with finding out who killed a kidnap victim in this enjoyably nasty thriller, adapted from Lawrence Block's book. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]
Posted Sep 19, 2014

Posted Sep 12, 2014
4/5 88% A Most Wanted Man (2014) "Anton Corbijn's new thriller is perhaps the best so far to tackle the War on Terror, thanks to an ingeniously twisty, and deeply cynical, storyline plus a towering performance from Philip Seymour Hoffman ... " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Sep 12, 2014
2/5 75% The Boxtrolls (2014) "Although this is brought to us by the makers of Coraline and ParaNorman, the earlier films' knowing, child-aware sense of menace is nowhere to be seen. " ‐ Daily Mirror [UK]
Posted Sep 12, 2014

1/5 18% Let's Be Cops (2014) "Police Academy 6: City Under Siege has long been regarded as the worst ever cop comedy. That questionable honour, however, is now under threat from this criminally unfunny satire. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]
Posted Sep 4, 2014
2/5 36% If I Stay (2014) "Moretz is very much a star on the rise. Alas, there are bound to be potholes along the way -- and this dying teen tearjerker is one big enough to snap axles. " ‐ Daily Record [UK]
Posted Sep 4, 2014
