Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 46% Hampstead (2017) Pensioners may be able to get cheap daytime tickets but they don't deserve cut price drama.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 45% Rock Dog (2017) It's charming, gently amusing and Rock Dog doesn't strum too loudly on his guitar.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 70% Gifted (2017) Webb has uncovered a real gifted child in McKenna Grace, who is touching, charming and refreshingly unaffected as the reluctant little genius.‐ Daily Express (UK)

1/5 48% Churchill (2017) Sadly, the flabby script doesn't offer this talented actor nearly enough to sink his teeth into. I spent the first half rolling my eyes and the second half fighting to keep them open.‐ Daily Express (UK)

1/5 20% The Shack (2017) After two hours of this drivel, I was praying for the end credits.‐ Daily Star

2/5 15% The Mummy (2017) The film offers Walking Dead style fights and clunky comedy blatantly ripped off from An American Werewolf In London. If Universal hope to take on Wonder Woman and Iron Man at the box office, they'll have to go back to the drawing board.‐ Daily Star

3/5 19% Baywatch (2017) I feel duty bound to kick sand in the face of director Seth Gordon. But to be honest, I just don't have it in me. I found myself laughing seven or eight times during his Baywatch spoof.‐ Daily Star

4/5 92% Wonder Woman (2017) She's fearless, whip-smart and she's just saved the Universe. After three false starts, director Patty Jenkins has delivered the first great film in the DCEU.‐ Daily Star

4/5 71% Alien: Covenant (2017) It may be missing a standout shock but Covenant keeps it's promise to horror fans. ‐ Daily Star

4/5 87% Their Finest (2017) Lone Scherfig may be Danish, but she's knows precisely how to make a Brit flick tick.‐ Daily Star

4/5 88% The Lost City of Z (2017) If you're in the "they don't make them like they used to" camp, you'll have a great time being proved wrong.‐ Daily Star

3/5 46% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) At least this bizarre Power Rangers movie tries to do something to stand out from the crowd.‐ Daily Star

4/5 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) Cleary, there's still plenty of Disney magic in this fairytale.‐ Daily Star

4/5 76% Kong: Skull Island (2017) This is very unusual blockbuster - a Vietnam war flick, a comedy and an old-fashioned creature feature in one monstrously entertaining package. It's bananas but brilliant.‐ Daily Star

4/5 89% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) As wonderfully crafted as they are (and for me the choreography knocks La La Land into a cocked hat), there's always a danger the violence could become a bit numbing. Thankfully, the film-makers know precisely when to puncture the killing with comedy.‐ Daily Star

4/5 90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) This "block" buster definitely won't disappoint.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2017
3/5 43% Gold (2017) It's not as brainy as The Big Short, as witty as American Hustle or as entertaining as The Wolf of Wall Street. But this slightly muddled tale does unearth something golden -- another glittering turn from Matthew McConaughey‐ Daily Star

3/5 78% T2 Trainspotting (2017) It's clever, well-written and well acted. But not quite what I expected from a Trainspotting sequel.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Jan 23, 2017
4/5 93% La La Land (2016) Joyous, romantic and achingly stylish.‐ Daily Star

3/5 75% Split (2017) Shyamalan is clearly having fun here and we're laughing with him. As I said, it's a big improvement on After Earth.‐ Daily Star

2/5 18% Assassin's Creed (2016) The thrilling action sequences in medieval Spain provide a glimpse of how a less convoluted version could have played out. But whenever we're about to get lost in the action, Kurzel yanks us back into the present day for more hogwash.‐ Daily Star

4/5 80% Eddie The Eagle (2016) As Egerton's gurning, one-note performance is beginning to lose its charm, Jackman's A-list grit arrives just in time.‐ Daily Star

2/5 61% The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016) The story unfolds pretty much as expected.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2017
5/5 89% Dheepan (2016) Hard-hitting, beautifully shot and wonderfully acted.‐ Daily Star

4/5 46% The Take (Bastille Day) (2016) Bond and Bourne fans will notice the drop in budget, but this rollicking spy flick will fill a gap until Matt Damon returns to the spy game in July.‐ Daily Star

2/5 20% I Saw the Light (2016) [A] dull biopic of the legend of the Grand Ole Opry.‐ Daily Star

1/5 22% The Boss (2016) McCarthy is a brilliant physical comedian. But boy, does she need a decent director.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2016
3/5 76% Elvis & Nixon (2016) Spacey v Shannon is a fascinating showdown between two Hollywood heavyweights. ‐ Daily Star

3/5 69% Central Intelligence (2016) If you are suffering from The Brexit Blues, then watching a tiny comic repeatedly clocking a hulking muscle man around the chops could be just what the doctor ordered.‐ Daily Star

4/5 15% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) This is the best Ice Age movie since the first one.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2016
3/5 35% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) Hopefully, enough Marvel kids can be persuaded to check this old-fashioned superhero. Tarzan is swinging again.‐ Daily Star

4/5 83% Oasis: Supersonic (2016) Director Mat Whitecross cleverly focuses on the band's best period -- beginning on the council estates of Burnage in 1991 and ending five years later in front of a quarter of a million fans at Knebworth.‐ Daily Star

83% A United Kingdom (2017) Great performances from both actors sell the romance and the struggle. This is an inspiring true story that really deserves to be retold.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2016
4/5 52% The Accountant (2016) This bonkers but brilliant premise means this is one of the more preposterous action movies of the year. It's also one of the most entertaining.‐ Daily Star

4/5 63% The Magnificent Seven (2016) Unlike most of this year's blockbusters, his "Thoroughly Entertaining Seven" hits most of its targets.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2016
2/5 61% Snowden (2016) Depending your politics, Snowden's revelations about the US secret electronic surveillance system make him a patriot or a traitor. Stone is so determined to show him as the former, he also makes him a bit of a bore.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2016
3/5 71% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) It's an intriguing and very timely story, even if the tension and credibility aren't quite up to the standards of 2011's brilliant Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.‐ Daily Star

1/5 13% Collateral Beauty (2016) Sounds dreadful doesn't it? Believe or not it, it gets a whole lot worse.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2016
5/5 85% Sully (2016) No one plays no-nonsense heroes like Tom Hanks and no director admires them quite so much as Clint Eastwood.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2016
3/5 76% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) Thankfully, this third outing for Renée Zellweger's singleton is a lot more worthwhile than the recent returns of Zoolander and the Terminator.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2016
4/5 87% Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) Brilliant Streep wails hilariously and Grant bumbles expertly as Frears turns a true story into an old-fashioned farce. But it's the film's emotional beats that really make it sing.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2016
1/5 61% High-Rise (2016) Incoherent, pretentious and painfully self-indulgent.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2016
1/5 23% Bad Santa 2 (2016) The really offensive thing about it is how lazy it is.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2016
4/5 84% Deepwater Horizon (2016) Peter Berg's restaging of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico is spectacular and bracingly realistic.‐ Daily Star

4/5 83% Sausage Party (2016) It may be off its trolley but it also feels fresh out of the packet.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2016
4/5 87% Pete's Dragon (2016) It's touching, magical, heartfelt and, in the Disney tradition, is prepared to explore its forest setting's darker byways.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2016
3/5 25% Suicide Squad (2016) It's more entertaining than Batman v Superman, the first film in the new DC Comics franchise, but compared with Guardians Of The Galaxy, Marvel's offbeat ensemble, it's anything but super.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2016
4/5 94% Finding Dory (2016) Stanton takes aim at the heart instead of the head. This is another touching fable about friendship, self-reliance and courage.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2016
5/5 96% Sing Street (2016) Touching and achingly funny.‐ Daily Star
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2016
5/5 93% Arrival (2016) In it's own way, this beautifully shot, brilliant acted and smartly written movie is as exciting as Independence Day or War of the Worlds.‐ Daily Star
