Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
2/5 41% No Reservations (2007) " With Shine's Scott Hicks at the helm, this is a well-presented dish, but too cloying for discerning palates." — Total Film
Posted Aug 31, 2007
3/5 56% Vacancy (2007) " Vacancy's an audience divider - a predictable yet occasionally classy film. Depending on your mood it's an efficient exercise in popcorn frights, or a cynical B-movie..." — Total Film
Posted Jun 15, 2007
3/5 94% Away from Her (2007) " This cautionary tale of making the most of life during our winter months successfully lodges itself into the memory." — Total Film
Posted Apr 27, 2007
3/5 65% Sleeping Dogs Lie (2006) " A bestiality rom-com with unexpected charm. Not quite the dog's bollocks, but certainly no dog's dinner either." — Total Film
Posted Mar 16, 2007
4/5 76% A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints (2006) " A deserved hit at Sundance, Guide plays like Stand By Me crossed with Kids. It's as promising, beautiful and gritty as its onscreen 'saints'." — Total Film
Posted Feb 27, 2007
4/5 56% The Polar Express (2013) " Enchanting, if disconcerting, feel-good fare loaded with predictable, wholesome messages but crammed with enough Christmas wonderment to off-set the saccharine." — ViewLondon
Posted Dec 4, 2004
3/5 30% The Alamo (2004) ViewLondon
Posted Sep 4, 2004
3/5 53% The Transporter (2002) " Stylish and enjoyable but prone to stupidity." — ViewLondon
Posted Jan 18, 2003
1/5 22% Mr. Deeds (2002) " When you've already made something as execrable and universally loathed as Little Nicky, why stop there?" — ViewLondon
Posted Nov 3, 2002
3/5 20% Jason X (2002) ViewLondon
Posted Oct 30, 2002
3/5 76% My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002) " To their credit, Hanks and Wilson stuck to their guns, keeping Vardalos and her ethnicity in a film that is as much a triumph of the underdog and word-of-mouth as it is a box office success." — ViewLondon
Posted Oct 30, 2002
2/5 45% Return to Never Land (2002) " A film lacking the wit, enchantment, and spark of the original -- despite being a shameless copy of it." — BBC.com
Posted Mar 25, 2002
4/5 77% Ice Age (2002) " Manages to remain consistently entertaining and delightful throughout." — BBC.com
Posted Mar 18, 2002
3/5 14% Crossroads (2002) " Spears manages to come across on film as natural, endearing, and extremely likable." — BBC.com
Posted Mar 4, 2002
3/5 46% Shiner (2001) " Opening with some contrived banter, cliches and some loose ends, the screenplay only comes into its own in the second half." — BBC.com
Posted Jan 30, 2002
3/5 66% Me Without You (2002) " Goldbacher effectively explores the love-hate and competitive nature of close female relationships with wit, evocative staging, and a whimsical soundtrack." — BBC.com
Posted Jan 8, 2002
4/5 44% Rat Race (2001) " A genuinely hilarious belly-acher." — BBC.com
Posted Jan 8, 2002
4/5 58% Serendipity (2001) " Wittily scripted, beautifully played by an excellent cast, and just so darned... nice, this is must-see viewing for the romantics." — BBC.com
Posted Dec 17, 2001
4/5 88% Chasing Amy (1997) " Utilises the same sharp - sometimes sick - observational humour and ear for dialogue that made Clerks such an indie gem." — BBC.com
Posted Dec 10, 2001
3/5 24% Don't Say a Word (2001) " A smart script and great casting elevate a pedestrian premise to the status of satisfying thriller." — BBC.com
Posted Nov 19, 2001
3/5 71% Baby Boy (2001) " Johnson and Rhames are superb as Jody's charming, hard-working mother and her ex-con boyfriend Melvin." — BBC.com
Posted Nov 12, 2001
3/5 63% Crazy/ Beautiful (2001) " [Dunst's] intelligent, complex performance makes Nicole a charming, frustrating, pathetic, and ballsy protagonist worthy of screen time." — BBC.com
Posted Sep 10, 2001
4/5 92% Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001) " Its off-kilter originality makes a welcome change from the summer's CGI dinosaur or tomb raiding behemoths." — BBC.com
Posted Jul 30, 2001
1/5 17% Dracula 2000 (2000) " Bargain basement horror." — BBC.com
Posted May 21, 2001
5/5 99% L.A. Confidential (1997) " Director Curtis Hanson's elegant film is faithful to Ellroy's multi-layered and labyrinthine book, requiring some concentration to keep up with the subtle plot twists and coded dialogue." — BBC.com
Posted Apr 17, 2001
81% Bridget Jones's Diary (2001) " Faithful to its source, perfectly cast and even funnier than the book." — Popcorn
