Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
3/5 96% Undefeated (2012) " This is a valuable story from what one interview subject aptly refers to as the 'have-nots' of one of America's richest sports." — The List
Posted Jul 25, 2012
3/5 66% The Women on the 6th Floor (2011) " Several stalwarts of European cinema retread familiar territory in this light-as-a-feather upstairs/downstairs comedy set in 1960s Paris." — The List
Posted Jul 9, 2012
2/5 63% Anton Corbijn Inside Out (2012) " If there is any great personal theory beneath his works' stunning surfaces Quirijns fails to draw it out here." — The List
Posted Jun 28, 2012
3/5 62% Day of the Flowers (2014) " It's a likeable film, if not a particularly riveting one, easily enjoyed and just as easily forgotten." — The List
Posted Jun 26, 2012
3/5 54% Dr Seuss' The Lorax (2012) " It's a visual delight; all beautifully-designed 3D animation, detailed sight gags and unique characters shaped in Seuss's immediately recognisable style." — The List
Posted Jun 22, 2012
2/5 77% Kid-Thing (2013) " Without a compelling narrative to hold the scenes together it's hard work with little reward, even for a committed audience." — The List
Posted Jun 21, 2012
4/5 52% Where Do We Go Now? (2012) " [Labaki] further establishes herself as not only a great storyteller, but a director of significant vision, with a powerful command of cinematic style." — The List
Posted Jun 14, 2012
3/5 67% Friends With Kids (2012) " In the film's favour is the fantastic cast, which includes Edward Burns, Kristen Wiig and a particularly on-form Jon Hamm." — The List
Posted Jun 14, 2012
3/5 95% Woody Allen: A Documentary (2012) " It is guaranteed to drive audiences back to his films for repeat viewings; no bad thing as far as this reviewer is concerned." — The List
Posted Jun 7, 2012
3/5 65% If I Want To Whistle, I Whistle (2011) " Serban's film is as flawed as the bruised character at its centre, but almost as compelling too." — The List
Posted May 18, 2012
3/5 84% Angel & Tony (Angèle et Tony) " Hesme and Gadebois are both very good, somehow convincing us that this odd couple may inexplicably be right for each other, and the seaport setting is given a touch of poetry by Mathieu Maestracci's gentle score." — The List
Posted May 4, 2012
3/5 56% Hunky Dory (2013) " There's at least one sub-plot too many, but audiences willing to suspend disbelief will be swept up as the greatest high school band in the history of music perform an impeccable selection of hits." — The List
Posted Apr 18, 2012
3/5 65% All In Good Time " Reece Ritchie and Amara Karan are charmingly sincere and easy to root for as the young couple who know very little about sex, a rare and refreshing sight in contemporary cinema." — The List
Posted Apr 17, 2012
1/5 63% Café de Flore (2012) " Vallée appears content to put his audience through the emotional wringer for no discernible purpose, and the result is a film that is objectionable and ultimately pointless." — The List
Posted Apr 17, 2012
3/5 84% Return (2012) " It's a focused, unshowy character study, light on fireworks but full of authentic drama and featuring an impressive lead performance from former ER actress Linda Cardellini." — The List
Posted Apr 3, 2012
3/5 73% The Monitor (Babycall) (2012) " It's a well-paced, gradually established scenario; Norwegian writer/director Pål Sletaune keeps us guessing as to what is really going on, while drip-feeding information that slowly undermines the reliability of Anna's perspective." — The List
Posted Mar 23, 2012
8/10 86% Submarine (2011) " This is a rare thing: a British comedy debut that's surprising, witty, hugely accomplished and fully capable of finding an audience worldwide." — Future Movies UK
Posted Aug 6, 2011
8/10 71% Monsters (2010) " Monsters looks and feels like a major studio film, and Edwards is clearly a talent to watch." — Future Movies UK
Posted Apr 16, 2011
5/10 70% Limitless (2011) " Perhaps a better title would be Limited." — Future Movies UK
Posted Mar 24, 2011
8/10 97% Breathless (À bout de souffle) (By a Tether) (1961) Future Movies UK
Posted Feb 18, 2011
6/10 49% The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010) " It's not a film that has anything like the thematic weight of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, but what it does offer is a fun and exciting (but not too scary) time at the movies for kids." — Future Movies UK
Posted Feb 18, 2011
6/10 38% Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant (2009) Future Movies UK
Posted Nov 6, 2010
6/10 33% Burke and Hare (2011) " Burke and Hare is a film that's hard not to like, imbued as it is by American director John Landis with a charm and naivety that belies its rather grotesque subject matter." — Future Movies UK
Posted Oct 30, 2010
7/10 29% New In Town (2009) Future Movies UK
Posted Oct 2, 2010
8/10 87% Buried (2010) " One of the film's great strengths is that Sparling's script doesn't pull any punches with the scenario." — Future Movies UK
Posted Oct 2, 2010
8/10 91% Mother (1996) Future Movies UK
Posted Oct 2, 2010
8/10 77% Role Models (2008) " This is an obviously contrived plot, but the script, co-written by Rudd, director David Wain, support actor Ken Marino and writer Tim Dowling, is packed with great jokes..." — Future Movies UK
Posted Jul 6, 2010
6/10 43% Robin Hood (2010) " In their efforts to do something new and different with the Robin Hood character, Scott and his merry band of filmmakers have robbed him of everything that made him great." — Future Movies UK
Posted May 13, 2010
5/10 73% Iron Man 2 (2010) " A series of carefully-planned, effects-heavy sequences strung together with slapdash storytelling, underdeveloped character ideas and the occasional funny line of dialogue." — Future Movies UK
Posted May 5, 2010
7/10 84% Whip It (2009) " With Page easily handling what little dramatic weight there is, the support players are free to focus on being funny, and they give it their all." — Future Movies UK
Posted Apr 8, 2010
4/10 13% The Bounty Hunter (2010) " This is premium-grade convoluted Hollywood rubbish." — Future Movies UK
Posted Mar 19, 2010
7/10 51% Alice in Wonderland (2010) " Burton treats the eyes and tickles the funny bone, no doubt, but the heart and mind are left wanting." — Future Movies UK
Posted Mar 16, 2010
2/10 49% Astro Boy (AstroBoy) (2009) " It's ironic that Astro Boy's story is rooted in the concept of uniqueness and invention, as director David Bowers (Flushed Away) has failed to come up with a single original idea in his telling of it." — Future Movies UK
Posted Feb 5, 2010
7/10 71% The Boys Are Back (2009) " [Clive Owen's] performance as Joe in The Boys Are Back not only gives the film a strong emotional centre but also keeps it out of overly sentimental territory." — Future Movies UK
Posted Jan 22, 2010
9/10 90% Fish Tank (2010) " One of the best films of the year." — Future Movies UK
Posted Jan 15, 2010
6/10 64% The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009) " It is the director's ceaseless creativity that stands out in Imaginarium, and makes the film worth watching despite its narrative and logical flaws." — Future Movies UK
Posted Dec 25, 2009
7/10 76% The Young Victoria (2009) Future Movies UK
Posted Dec 18, 2009
2/10 25% Law Abiding Citizen (2009) " Avoid this drivel at all costs." — Future Movies UK
Posted Oct 16, 2009
8/10 89% A Serious Man (2009) " A film that's as difficult as it is brilliant." — Future Movies UK
Posted Oct 2, 2009
8/10 90% Zombieland (2009) " A pleasant surprise indeed (that is, if your definition of pleasant allows room for multiple depictions of gruesomely splattered zombies. Mine does)." — Future Movies UK
Posted Oct 2, 2009
6/10 42% Jennifer's Body (2009) " While it is unmistakeably from the same witty and culturally aware mind as Juno, it falls short of the high bar that Cody set for herself with that excellent debut." — Future Movies UK
Posted Sep 18, 2009
8/10 74% Cold Souls (2009) Future Movies UK
Posted Aug 7, 2009
8/10 96% Somers Town (2009) Future Movies UK
Posted Jul 15, 2009
8/10 97% The Hurt Locker (2009) " The characters are fictional, but writer Mark Boal spent time in Iraq following soldiers who really do this, and the film never feels anything less than authentic." — Future Movies UK
Posted Jun 26, 2009
7/10 52% Easy Virtue (2009) Future Movies UK
Posted May 22, 2009
9/10 83% Bright Star (2009) Future Movies UK
Posted May 15, 2009
8/10 56% The Soloist (2009) Future Movies UK
Posted Apr 24, 2009
8/10 70% La Habitación de Fermat (Fermat's Room) (2009) Future Movies UK
Posted Apr 17, 2009
8/10 90% Lebanon (Levanon) (2010) " This film is a significant anti-war statement, and one that deserves your time and attention." — Future Movies UK
Posted Mar 26, 2009
4/10 33% Knowing (2009) " In the film's conclusion Proyas undoes most of his good work from earlier, resulting in the disappointing ruin of what could have been a rather thought-provoking story." — Future Movies UK
Posted Mar 20, 2009
3/10 63% The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas) (2008) " The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas may seek to provoke uneasy questions about humanity, but it goes about it in a way that places the film's own moral accountability on very shaky ground." — Future Movies UK
