Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1.5/5 36% Awaydays (2009) "A pretentious, grubbily voyeuristic paean to football hooliganism, kitted out with ubiquitous slo-mo violence, tactical post-punk hits and retro fashions. " ‐ Film4
Posted May 22, 2009
4.5/5 87% Sounds Like Teen Spirit (2009) "It is physically impossible to emerge from this film wearing anything other than a smile as big as an upside-down rainbow. Congratulations - and jubilations! " ‐ Film4
Posted May 8, 2009
2.5/5 24% Little Ashes (2009) "Ultimately, Little Ashes, a piece of commercial entertainment made on the other side of the twentieth century, lacks the courage of its case studies' convictions. " ‐ Film4
Posted May 8, 2009
4/5 90% Coraline (2009) "Like the Tin Man of Oz, Coraline is a miracle of engineering - and absolutely heartless. " ‐ Film4
Posted May 8, 2009
2/5 65% Is Anybody There? (2009) "It's a film to respect or admire from a distance, rather than like or, you know, actually enjoy. " ‐ Film4
Posted May 1, 2009
3/5 67% The End "A deliberately distressed and scratchy documentary of talking heads, sporting the same sinister techno score and added subtitles for non-cockneys. " ‐ Film4
Posted May 1, 2009
1.5/5 32% The Uninvited (2009) "Unremarkable, unimaginative and unnecessary. Check out the superior original instead. " ‐ Film4
Posted Apr 24, 2009
3.5/5 96% Shifty (2008) "Creevy eschews the woozy, arthouse ambience of Duane Hopkins' Better Things - another portrait of a drug-decimated community - for naturalistic dialogue and performances within carefully framed and composed shots; properly cinematic, grown-up direction. " ‐ Film4
Posted Apr 24, 2009
2/5 33% Not Easily Broken (2009) "It is unspeakably naff, unintentionally funny and unapologetically Christian. Judged on its own terms, it's a resounding success. But for non-believers it will likely prove a living purgatory. " ‐ Film4
Posted Apr 17, 2009
1.5/5 24% The World Unseen (2008) "As drama, it's insipid. As erotica, it's useless. " ‐ Film4
Posted Apr 3, 2009
4/5 76% Bronson (2009) "A weird and wonderful anti-biopic " ‐ Film4
Posted Mar 13, 2009
4/5 88% Platoon (1986) "The first and best of Stone's Vietnam trilogy, it's also one of his finest pieces of work. " ‐ Film4
Posted Feb 20, 2009
3.5/5 27% Clubbed (2008) "It's surprisingly good: well written, nicely acted and beautifully scored. " ‐ Film4
Posted Jan 16, 2009
3/5 100% C.R.A.Z.Y. (2005) "A warm-hearted if predictable rites-of-passage movie, enlivened by some surreal flourishes and a stomping glam soundtrack. " ‐ Film4
Posted Dec 5, 2008
4.5/5 85% Der Baader Meinhof Komplex (The Baader Meinhof Complex) (2008) "Along with Downfall, with whom it shares a screenwriter, this is among the greatest of the recent new wave of German films. " ‐ Film4
Posted Nov 14, 2008
3/5 73% Peur(s) du Noir (Fear(s) of the Dark) (2007) "Bit of a hodgepodge, this. Its natural home will be on DVD, where the occasional desire to fast-forward can be indulged. However, fans of the contemporary animation scene will find much to admire here. " ‐ Film4
Posted Oct 3, 2008
65% Wild At Heart (1990) "The result's mostly empty at heart and hollow on top. " ‐ Film4
Posted Sep 17, 2008
1.5/5 59% RocknRolla (2008) "Wading through this stuff is akin to peeping through one's fingers at a retired, punch-drunk boxer climbing into the ring, or a recidivist junkie ripping out their naltrexone implants. " ‐ Film4
Posted Sep 5, 2008

Posted Aug 22, 2008

Posted Jul 6, 2008
3.5/5 96% Let's Get Lost (1989) "A wide-eyed love letter to a jazz great, very much of its time, sporting stylish visuals and a sublime soundtrack. " ‐ Film4
Posted Jun 6, 2008
75% Quatermass 2 (2000) "A masterful near-satire of Cold War paranoia and, arguably, the best of the Quatermass series. " ‐ Film4
Posted May 14, 2008
96% Kirikou and the Sorceress (1998) "An enchanting, life-affirming animation of love and redemption, made with no small measure of maturity and care -- along with an all too rare respect for the art of storytelling. " ‐ Film4
Posted Mar 10, 2008
1.5/5 24% Shrooms (2008) "Mush. " ‐ Film4
Posted Nov 23, 2007
56% The Magic Christian (1970) "Save for some eye-popping cameos, there's nothing very magic about this dated dog's breakfast of a movie. " ‐ Film4
Posted Sep 10, 2007

Posted Feb 7, 2006
80% The Panic in Needle Park (1971) "A brilliantly performed, remarkably un-exploitative (and occasionally funny) portrayal of the ravages of drug addiction, shot with searing documentary-style realism from Schatzberg. " ‐ Film4
Posted Apr 9, 2005
2/5 14% Without a Paddle (2004) "While striving for a bit of liberalism (ain't we City types the real stoopid ones) almost every scene then throws in the towel and falls back on a clutch of unfunny country-livin' clich├ęs. " ‐ BBC.com
