T-Meter Title | Year
4/5 95% The Social Network (2010) It's Eisenberg's performance that captivates -- icky and icy but strangely sympathetic. - Total Film EDIT

4/5 71% Enter the Void (Soudain le vide) (2010) Beyond the daft comparisons with 2001, this is a mature film from a director who's morphing from eye-rolling agitator into eye-catching artist. - Total Film EDIT

2/5 49% My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done (2010) It's like Psycho remade by Ed Wood. - Total Film EDIT

2/5 43% Robin Hood (2010) It's like an episode of 24 with furrier overcoats. - Total Film EDIT

54% Cemetery Junction (2010) Good looks, cool characters, great music. Gervais and Merchant's film is the most confident British debut since Shallow Grave. - Total Film EDIT

5/5 82% Avatar (2009) Game-changing - yes. Spectacular - absolutely. Occasional dodgy dialogue and dramatic imperfections - of course. But still - wait for it... - a titanic achievement. - Total Film EDIT

3/5 67% Bruno (2009) As phoney and frustrating as it is funny. Baron Cohen's comedy-outsider schtick is slick but well and truly found out. The clothes may be new and more fabulous, but the emperor seriously needs to go shopping. - Total Film EDIT

3/5 64% Crank 2: High Voltage (2009) Not quite as much fun as the from-nowhere original, but still, y'know, fackin' shocking. - Total Film EDIT

3/5 86% Dean Spanley (My Talks with Dean Spanley) (2008) A redemptive arc leashes the threads together, hinged on insights into familial repression that are a tad too costumedrama-stifled for their own good. - Total Film EDIT

3/5 65% Quantum of Solace (2008) Director Marc Forster has cranked the action up to 11 - and in some cases, 12. - Total Film EDIT

4/5 92% Happy-Go-Lucky (2008) Fresh, funny and uplifting. A zingy, irresistible sorbet of light-footed comedy and everyday humanity. Only hardened churls will roll their weary eyes at Hawkins' gusto. Leigh's most open and optimistic film since Life Is Sweet. - Total Film EDIT

3/5 36% Sleuth (2007) Caine and Law rustle up a spicy chemistry which sustains a sizzle for an hour or so. But the second half panders to Pinter's self-indulgence, unravelling Branagh's high-tensile head-fuck as a hollow skirmish. - Total Film EDIT

4/5 92% Sicko (2007) A bitter but bracing pill. Moore constructs a fiery but unfanatical argument that boils down to a simple truth: Americans need to stop helping themselves and start helping each other. - Total Film EDIT

1/5 71% Black Sheep (2006) Dopey editing, ropey pacing, hokey story structure, scrappy sound, rubbish rubbery gore and acting that would shame a toddlers' nativity play. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2007
5/5 90% Half Nelson (2006) A riveting study in dislocation and connection, hurt and healing, with Gosling revealed as potentially the most gifted actor of his generation. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2007
3/5 91% Hot Fuzz (2007) The first half's a blast, but as the comedy / action / horror / parody piles up, Hot Fuzz cools down. Needs more of a short, sharp schlock. - Total Film EDIT
