Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 28% Deliver Us from Evil (2014) It's scary, but it's also entertainment. It's scarentertainment. (That's awful. Forget I wrote that).‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

2/5 42% Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) Nine years after the pages first turned on Sin City, and with three major parts recast, this Dame To Kill For is sashaying into town long after everyone has lost interest.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

32% The Expendables 3 (2014) Strip out the gags, the explosions and the posturing, and you see The Expendables 3 for what it really is: a bunch of knackered old men pandering to teenagers. Grim.‐ Film4

3/5 67% Lucy (2014) If this represents just 10% of Luc Besson's creative potency, the mind boggles at what he could achieve at full capacity.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

5/5 91% Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) Guardians Of The Galaxy is one of Marvel's best films simply because it doesn't really feel like it's part of the Marvel universe at all.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 56% The Purge: Anarchy (2014) A B-movie with A-grade ambitions and ideas way above its station, The Purge series feels like an incredible concept in search of filmmakers with equally high aspirations.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

3/5 90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) A third Apes movie featuring no human characters would be the perfect evolution for a thrilling series that has itself evolved way beyond reasonable expectations.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

5/5 98% Boyhood (2014) Boyhood is an astonishing body of work: a unique cinematic experience that condenses over a decade of life into three blissful hours. The kind of movie you want to swim in.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 91% Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014) It's taut, twisted and blackly funny in ways that only movies in which Tom Cruise gets crushed under the wheel of a truck can be.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 74% Godzilla (2014) Godzilla stands tall in the modern pantheon of monster movies: a no-nonsense beast that makes his 90s counterpart look like a bogey with legs.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 100% Next Goal Wins (2014) Show a non-football fan Next Goal Wins, and I guarantee that by the final whistle they'll have a new-found appreciation for the beautiful game.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

2/5 27% Pompeii (2014) You'll see nothing Ridley Scott didn't do better a decade ago and nothing 300: Rise Of An Empire didn't do with more style six weeks ago.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 99% Starred Up (2014) It offers no easy answers and takes no sides: the result is one of the most engrossing, exciting and explosive prison films the UK has ever produced.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2014
5/5 85% Under the Skin (2014) Under The Skin finds grace even in moments of raw horror, composed by a filmmaker who can legitimately call himself a master of the art.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2014
3/5 59% Non-Stop (2014) It is crucial that a film of this genre can convince you it is smarter than you are. Non-Stop fails, but makes an admirable effort to distract you with silliness.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 51% Cuban Fury (2014) I could honestly stare at Nick Frost's face for hours: he is literally a human teddy bear.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2014
48% RoboCop (2014) As remakes go, this is no RoboCop-out. Sleek though it may be, it's not hard to imagine how much better a version for adults would have been.‐ Film4

57% Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014) Creatively bereft and poorly cast, this Jack Ryan is sadly one spy who blends into the crowd a little too easily.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Jan 23, 2014
2/5 57% Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014) The world has changed since Tom Clancy's heyday - cinema doesn't need Jack Ryan any more.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

5/5 77% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) Spend three hours on Scorsese's Wall Street, and he'll have you convinced: greed isn't just good - it's great.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

2/5 29% The Family (2013) Every time Luc Besson uses a bullet in a body as a punchline, a real joke somewhere out in the wild dies.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Nov 24, 2013
4/5 64% Filth (2014) Required to run the gamut from sympathetic, troubled victim of circumstance to sweaty, coke-fuelled rage monster, McAvoy is a horrifically enjoyable revelation.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Nov 24, 2013
35% The Counselor (2013) Frustratingly directionless and unconcerned with detail, but fans of the writer will feel right at home wallowing through fresh reams of his trademark bleak prose.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2013
4/5 66% Thor: The Dark World (2013) Though it uses some spotty logic and galactic-sized plot contrivances to get it over the finish line, Thor: The Dark World is never less than breathlessly entertaining.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

3/5 81% Don Jon (2013) Though Don Jon succeeds in being funny at every turn, it is less successful in being a movie with something important to say.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2013
93% Captain Phillips (2013) With Greengrass an expert navigator of choppy waters and Hanks the assured hand at the wheel, Captain Phillips is one of the year's most thrilling cinematic voyages.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2013
4/5 94% All Is Lost (2013) All Is Lost is a movie that is understated, yet still manages to play out on a staggeringly huge canvas; the personal and the universal one and the same.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2013
8% Runner Runner (2013) Like a game of online poker, the thrills in Runner Runner come in small increments. Pretty but vacant, it's unremarkable and entirely forgettable.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2013
2/5 8% Runner Runner (2013) In poker terms, Runner Runner is the player who wins an average stack of chips, bets moderately, cashes out even and leaves before the game gets interesting.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 89% Rush (2013) Rush falls short of greatness due to a final layer of artifice lacquered over the screenplay: that's the Peter Morgan difference.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 92% In a World... (2013) Sweet, witty and exquisitely observed, In A World... sees the emergence of an exciting talent: any agents looking for a new triple threat should ring that Bell.‐ Empire Magazine
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2013
3/5 58% Riddick (2013) An obvious throwback to the stripped-back, small-scale sci-fi of Pitch Black... a fun flick with all the right intentions.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2013
3/5 47% We're The Millers (2013) A movie with a solid comedic concept at its core but one that is forced to go through the necessary motions until it rolls to a stop.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2013
3/5 31% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) Kick-Ass 2 is fun, but it isn't always funny.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2013
3/5 31% The Lone Ranger (2013) The Lone Ranger is a curio on a gigantic scale; a colossal, misunderstood mistake that will win you over with weird if only you'll let it.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

3/5 87% Alan Partridge (2014) For a character who has survived 20 years on every broadcasting medium under the sun, it's remarkable that Alan has never outstayed his welcome.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2013
4/5 93% Frances Ha (2013) An unlikely feelgood crowd-pleaser - Frances Ha is sweet, funny, darling and almost unbearably lovely. And thankfully, everyone enunciates.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2013
5/5 71% Pacific Rim (2013) Pacific Rim will go down as the year's ballsiest blockbuster - a movie for whom 'Go big or go extinct' isn't just a tagline, but a reason to be.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2013
3/5 55% Man of Steel (2013) Batman is serious. Iron Man is funny. I'm perfectly fine with Superman just being badass.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

7% The Big Wedding (2013) You'll run out of appendages on which to count the clichés.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted May 29, 2013
20% The Hangover Part III (2013) Be grateful this is the final chapter - it couldn't get much worse anyway.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted May 24, 2013
2/5 7% The Big Wedding (2013) Absolutely every character ends the movie on an upbeat note, proving that weddings are the best situations for solving peoples' problems.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted May 23, 2013
2/5 20% The Hangover Part III (2013) Rather like a real hangover, Part III leaves behind a sour taste and a nasty feeling like you've done something you shouldn't have.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted May 22, 2013
3/5 69% Fast & Furious 6 (2013) The action sequences are uniformly excellent and immaculately choreographed, although Justin Lin does edit the chase scenes with a touch too much haste and fury.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted May 13, 2013
4/5 53% Oblivion (2013) A sci-fi that's always a little more inclined to have the heart racing instead of the grey matter working. As an upgrade from the cold, emotionless Tron: Legacy, however, it's outstanding.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2013
3/5 68% Trance (2013) Trance is a film so twisty and slippery that it almost succeeds in making you lose interest in its outcome.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2013
4/5 41% Parker (2013) Slick, refined and so polished you can damn near make out your reflection on Statham's forehead. ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2013
2/5 15% Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013) Ironically, despite its lack of humour, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is a film destined to be remembered as a laughing stock.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 26, 2013
3/5 14% A Good Day To Die Hard (2013) Not a good day exactly, but not a goodnight to Die Hard either.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Feb 13, 2013
3/5 73% Prometheus (2012) The mishmash of grotesque body-horror and chin-stroking existentialism does not always make for the most coherent movie, but it is at least an entertaining one and certainly no black mark on the franchise. ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
