Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
2/5 23% Need For Speed (2014) " Less a three-lane pile-up than a minor traffic violation in a residential area. Three points for Waugh, then, and a 60 fine." — Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 14, 2014
3/5 77% Veronica Mars (2014) " A big-screen outing for the small screen Nancy Drew-alike that puts the 'fun' into 'crowdfunding'." — Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 14, 2014
3/5 76% Lone Survivor (2014) " A severe portrait of fortitude under extreme pressure, somewhat marred by blinkered politics." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 27, 2014
3/5 45% Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (Ice Age 3) (2009) " It's a pacey, enjoyable yarn for the most part, but the franchise's key strength is its characters and the relationships, tired by part two, are seriously running out of steam." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jul 3, 2009
2/5 6% Babylon A.D. (2008) " Brawny but brainless techno-twaddle." — Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 28, 2008
3/5 18% Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) " An enjoyable escapade and a great introduction to the forthcoming series -- just not the seventh Star Wars film fans were hoping for." — Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 12, 2008
4/5 96% The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters (2007) " An engrossing story that plucks at the heartstrings just as hard as it pummels the fire buttons." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2008
1/5 23% Awake (2007) " Less painful than having your chest cut open, but a disagreeable experience just the same." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 6, 2008
4/5 51% 30 Days of Night (2007) " This slick and sticky horror is the most accomplished treatment of vampire lore since Near Dark." — Empire Magazine
Posted Nov 1, 2007
3/5 85% Le Serpent (The Snake) (2006) " An appropriately serpentine plot makes for an engaging thriller. It's a shame then that the final showdown is so daft." — Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 14, 2007
5/5 94% The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) " The payoff Bourne fans have been waiting for." — Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 6, 2007
2/5 16% The Return (2006) " A large step backwards for a promising director and far from the return we'd been hoping for." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 15, 2007
3/5 75% Zathura (2005) " Charming children's adventure with some superb performances from the young cast." — Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 30, 2006
1/5 9% Stay Alive (2006) " A cool idea rapidly falls apart. A completely missed opportunity." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jul 28, 2006
1/5 9% Ultraviolet (2006) " Unengaging, uninspired and unwatchable. A criminal waste of time and talent." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 24, 2006
4/5 86% Slither (2006) " Undeniably funny and gooey to boot, Slither may not be groundbreaking but it is a rarity: a horror-comedy that does both its genre-parents proud." — Empire Magazine
Posted May 6, 2006
3/5 29% Silent Hill (2006) " It's this unwavering fidelity to the source material that is also the film's biggest problem." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 21, 2006
1/5 16% Underworld: Evolution (2006) " Evolution's action sequences are as horribly bungled as its plot, resulting in a string of repetitive confrontations that feel toothless even by the last movie's standards." — Empire Magazine
