T-Meter Title | Year
4/5 66% Friends: The Reunion (2021) Did we need a Friends reunion? Not really... Was this 100-minute tribute to the world's biggest sitcom as pointless as it was a total joy? Absolutely. - Independent (UK) EDIT

1/5 8% Music (2020) A baffling inspirational drama plagued by bad directorial choices... Let's toss a huge wig over this thing and pretend it never happened. - Independent (UK) EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Roald & Beatrix: The Tail of the Curious Mouse (2020) Roald & Beatrix is gentle, handsome and well-acted family viewing, yet substantial Christmas-driven obliviousness is needed to overlook the factual sourness of its hero. - Independent (UK) EDIT

3/5 93% Possessor: Uncut (2020) An entertaining techno thriller... led by actors whose mere presence does the leg work whenever Cronenberg's script falters. - Independent (UK) EDIT

3/5 53% Hubie Halloween (2020) More unexpectedly, it's generally bearable - a light, sweet and nostalgic comedy that is pleasantly devoid of high stakes. - Independent (UK) EDIT

4/5 83% Pinocchio (2020) It results in a film that is moving, tender and sumptuous, but bears a sticky queasiness that some may find unbearable. - Independent (UK) EDIT

2/5 79% Greyhound (2020) What's here is fleetingly thrilling. - Independent (UK) EDIT

3/5 75% The King of Staten Island (2020) Scott is both adorable and unpleasant, his trajectory believably scattershot... with his marvellously sloppy face and soft aimlessness, he's a pleasure to spend a couple of hours with. - Independent (UK) EDIT

2/5 29% Rebel in the Rye (2017) For the film's UK release, nearly three years after its limited theatrical unveiling in the US, Spacey has unsurprisingly been scrubbed from its cover art. The same treatment should have been extended to the film itself. - Independent (UK) EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Charlie Brooker's Antiviral Wipe (2020) Overflowing with eerie profundity. - Independent (UK) EDIT

4/5 75% The Photograph (2020) What luck, then, that Stella Meghie's film returns to its stronger elements so often. - Independent (UK) EDIT

3/5 83% Queen & Slim (2019) Simultaneously beautiful and troubling. - Independent (UK) EDIT

2/5 84% Waves (2019) Shults has proven himself to be a brilliant filmmaker already... But Waves gets away from him, the film far more captivated by sound and spectacle than it is character and story. - Independent (UK) EDIT

5/5 56% The Beach Bum (2019) It feels especially singular - as dizzying, baffling and heartfelt as something from one of our last scuzzy enfants-terribles could ever be. - Independent (UK) EDIT

2/5 69% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) By the time the film reaches its abrupt conclusion, complete with vast CGI zombie horde, Double Tap has long abandoned any sense of explicitly needing to exist. - Independent (UK) EDIT

2/5 56% J.T. LeRoy (2019) Yet despite the presence of two of our very best female actors, the story has lost much of its power and intrigue. - Independent (UK) EDIT

4/5 91% Gloria Bell (2019) Gloria Bell is somewhat exhausting - both unbearably intimate and at a constant remove - but it is endlessly pulled back into focus by Moore. - Independent (UK) EDIT

5/5 98% Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé (2019) Homecoming, in all its inspiring and mythologizing glory, doesn't just cement her legacy as a musical force,... but as a woman eager to ensure that others like her will follow in her footsteps, too. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

3/5 74% Guava Island (2019) As a film it is slight, but not unsatisfying, instead existing as a thoughtful, dreamy tribute to art, love and people power. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

2/5 64% Unicorn Store (2019) It's more often than not something of a slog, its insights shrug-worthy and its tone jarring in its shifts from candy-coloured whimsy to weepy dramatics. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

2/5 10% Tulip Fever (2017) Such a fascinating moment in Dutch history is deserving of a far better vehicle than an episode of Hollyoaks produced by Harvey Weinstein. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

2/5 56% Tag (2018) It's all a bit more sad than what you'd expect from a film with an extended set piece discussing the horrors of punches to the butt. It's a feeling that is unfortunately replicated in the film's cast. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

1/5 37% Patrick (2019) The film struggles to congeal, falling back on laboured gags set up with mechanical lack-of-ease. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 75% Mom and Dad (2018) Both a torrid exploitation cinema throwback, and a metaphor for a generation of kids screwed over by their elders. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2018
4/5 55% The Commuter (2018) We don't see movies like The Commuter for logical plots or quality acting, we see them because Neeson is shorthand for popcorn and 90-minute roller coaster rides. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2018
3/5 86% Ingrid Goes West (2017) By the time the film builds to a conclusion full of forced conflict, the subtle insight of its early scenes feel as forgotten as a Facebook message you haven't replied to in a month. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

2/5 39% Secret in Their Eyes (2015) Two great performances squandered in a silly misfire. - Little White Lies EDIT
