Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
5/10 40% Justice League (2017) In terms of the narrative of the film -- that feels awfully paint-by-numbers. ‐ Starburst

7/10 96% The Death of Stalin (2018) It is still a fascinating, engaging, and tongue-in-cheek look at one of the most chaotic of political times and the final moments of one of the most ruthless dictators the world has ever known.‐ Starburst

9/10 100% Paddington 2 (2018) How can you possibly match or even top that splendid soiree for the Peruvian bear? You'd think it would be an impossible task, but marvellously King has somehow shocked us once more.‐ Starburst

9/10 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Thor: Ragnarok is a truly rare beast, injecting a well-worn character with a new sense of life and purpose to the point that you are absolutely itching to see what's next for the Son of Odin.‐ Starburst

3/10 26% Birth of the Dragon (2017) Not only does Birth of the Dragon struggle to correctly handle its main character, Lee is also often positioned as a mere supporting character in an overplayed, overdone romance between McKee and Jingjing Qu's Xiulan.‐ Starburst

8/10 73% The Dark Crystal (1982) The Dark Crystal is well and truly a classic of its time, and it's a classic that's most certainly stood the test of time‐ Starburst

10/10 97% Night of the Living Dead (1968) All in all, Night of the Living Dead is obviously just as marvellous as it's always been.‐ Starburst

6/10 71% The Ritual (2017) The first thing that instantly grabs you about The Ritual is the kinship and camaraderie shared by the film's key players. ‐ Starburst

8/10 52% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) This is a fun, ferocious follow-up to one of the most enjoyable films of recent years, and we can only hope that Eggsy et al are back for a third outing at some point down the line.‐ Starburst

5/10 5% Flatliners (2017) What we end up with is a relatively paint-by-numbers effort that only rarely surprises yet is decent enough to pass a few hours.‐ Starburst

9/10 85% It (2017) It has to be said, to the surprise of many - Andy Muschietti's IT was a stunning effort that stands as one of the best films that 2017 dished up.‐ Starburst

9/10 93% Carrie (1976) Carrie sees Sissy Spacek in breakout form as the titular teenager. ‐ Starburst

3/10 0% The Horror Show (1989) When it comes down to it, House III: The Horror Show is easily the weakest entry in the House franchise and sadly seems like nothing more than a desperate attempt to draw in an audience purely based on gore and profanities. ‐ Starburst

6/10 No Score Yet House IV (House 4: The Repossession) (House IV: Home Deadly Home) (1991) Going back to the roots of the series, The Repossession is a fitting way to bring the House franchise to a conclusion, embracing the humour, charm and family-friendly scares that put this series on the map for genre fans in the first place.‐ Starburst

4/10 No Score Yet The Cutlass (2017) An uneven effort with noble intentions, The Cutlass ultimately suffers from an overbaked script and questionable directing.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2017
9/10 No Score Yet 30 Years Of Garbage: The Garbage Pail Kids Story (2017) 30 Years of Garbage is a marvellous celebration of something that was truly unique and special to so many of us, and this documentary most certainly does justice to such a brilliantly disgusting yet fascinatingly relevant slice of pop culture. ‐ Starburst

8/10 53% The Devil's Rejects (2005) It's The Devil's Rejects that's easily the best picture of Zombie's time in the director's chair. If you liked The Devil's Rejects back then, you'll still love it just as much now.‐ Starburst

10/10 83% The Thing (1982) What really is there left to say about John Carpenter's The Thing? A true genre classic from 1982, the film is an all-time favourite of many and often cited as a sci-fi horror masterclass. ‐ Starburst

7/10 25% Open Water 3: Cage Dive (2017) It may not have received much of a hyped release - and that cover art is truly terrible - but trust us when we say that Cage Dive is most certainly worth taking a chance on.‐ Starburst

8/10 82% Cult of Chucky (2017) Inventive, sinister and with some ingenious kills, Cult of Chucky is right up there with the best that this fan favourite franchise has put out since its inception in 1988. Wanna play? You bet we do!‐ Starburst

4/10 56% Batman and Harley Quinn (2017) Being perfectly honest, the movie is a rare misstep for Warner Brothers' animated DC output, and it feels horribly misjudged at several points.‐ Starburst

9/10 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Amazing? Yes. Spectacular? Most certainly. Superior? Without a shadow of a doubt.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2017
8/10 30% Havenhurst (2017) Havenhurst is a tight, tense and claustrophobic thriller that's held together by some perfectly-pitched performances.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
7/10 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) Apocalypse certainly has its issues, but it is undeniably a fun and engaging comic book movie that is only second to X-Men: First Class in how well it actually brings the comic book X-Men world to the big screen.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted May 19, 2016
8/10 82% These Final Hours (2015) Hilditch's 'end of the world' effort is a movie that could well be a dark horse bet to be one of many people's favourite films of the year by the time that 2016 comes to a close.‐ Starburst

7/10 50% Holidays (2016) Holidays is certainly one of the better anthology offerings of recent years.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2016
5/10 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) [it] does have some shining moments, but they are too few and far between in an effort that is overflowing with illogicalities, gaping plot holes and moments that simply don't make sense in any fundamental way that relates to the characters.‐ Starburst

8/10 83% The American Dreamer (1971) The American Dreamer is a wonderful look at a complex figure dealing with his own place in an ever-changing world.‐ Starburst

8/10 95% Creed (2015) Is it cheesy? Hell yes, but that's to be expected, and Creed manages to be utterly fantastic at the same time.‐ Starburst

9/10 75% The Hateful Eight (2015) To any and all fans of Tarantino's work, The Hateful Eight will be a wonderful slow-burn experience that showcases a true master of his craft.‐ Starburst

6/10 42% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) Howard's film is predictable, yet that's not to say it's not enjoyable. If you can get past Hemsworth's mish-mash of an accent (part New England local, part booming Thunder God), there are plenty of impressive turns to be seen.‐ Starburst

7/10 86% Willow Creek (2014) Willow Creek is a well-crafted, slow-burning horror that uses the found footage approach to deliver a movie that is just as much about what you don't see as what you do. A found footage movie as it should be done.‐ Starburst
