Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 33% Walking on Sunshine (2015) A cornball '80s jukebox movie with little of the unselfconscious charms of Mamma Mia!. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 23, 2014
66% The Rover (2014) The Rover is one of those compellingly nasty visions of the future that has plenty to say about humanity -- whether we want to hear it or not. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 17, 2014
4/5 81% The Fault In Our Stars (2014) Despite a few missteps this is a spirited, touching romance and Shailene Woodley's best performance yet. Divergent fans after a weepie need look no further. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 16, 2014
2/5 14% Blended (2014) Sandler's jocular, lowbrow goofing will leave many cold, whether he's goading his teenaged daughter or taking an ill-advised spin on an ostrich. ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 22, 2014
2/5 14% Blended (2014) The Wedding Singer director Frank Coraci mines few laughs from the script but Sandler fans will find something to enjoy. They usually do. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted May 18, 2014
3/5 16% Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return (2014) Kid-friendly with some neat visuals. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted May 18, 2014
4/5 74% Concussion (2013) Director Stacie Passion doesn't try to ape Buñuel's surrealist twist on ennui in Belle Du Jour, instead crafting an enthralling, modern tale in which intimacy is a goal rarely achieved. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted May 11, 2014
3/5 41% In Secret (2014) Sensitive performances from a willing cast bring Zola's novel to life on the big screen. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted May 11, 2014
2/5 17% Plastic (2014) It's a zippy, sometimes entertaining ride with a fun start. ‐ Time Out
Posted Apr 29, 2014
3/5 24% The Other Woman (2014) There's a strong whiff of The First Wives Club and an even a sprinkling of Working Girl here - but instead of updating the genre, The Other Woman rehashes it. ‐ Time Out
Posted Apr 22, 2014
3/5 68% Magic Magic (2013) The by-the-numbers plotting is a little clunky but there's fun to be had in the cast's easy chemistry. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 14, 2014
3/5 38% The Fold (2014) While The Fold has something to say about loss and family relationships, it doesn't probe too deeply. ‐ Time Out
Posted Mar 25, 2014
3/5 68% Afternoon Delight (2013) Six Feet Under scribe Jill Soloway offers a wry perspective on married life as Temple's stripper-with-a-heart is lobbed into this domestic yarn like a firecracker in an arms cache. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 24, 2014
3/5 34% Labor Day (2014) Performances are strong, the chemistry is palpable and romantic sorts will get something from the Stockholm syndrome story. ‐ Metro [UK]
Posted Mar 21, 2014
3/5 79% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) "Everybody knows that the sequel's never quite as good," sing our fluffy friends during the opening number of a film with much to live up to after 2011's terrific reboot, The Muppets. The joke proves self-fulfilling ... ‐ Time Out
Posted Mar 18, 2014
3/5 79% The Machine (2014) Good British sci-fis don't come along very often, so this stylish slice of a dystopian near-future should be welcomed by fans. ‐ Time Out
Posted Mar 18, 2014
3/5 82% G.B.F. (2014) An original premise and earnest tone go a long way. ‐ Time Out
Posted Mar 18, 2014
2/5 23% Need For Speed (2014) Audiences purely interested in the cars won't be disappointed - frankly they're sexier than the cast. ‐ Time Out
Posted Mar 12, 2014
3.5/4 15% Endless Love (2014) A flowerier adaptation of the Scott Spencer romance than Zeffirelli's '80s version, it's tailor-made for the Nicholas Sparks crowd. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 11, 2014
3/5 23% That Awkward Moment (2014) Offers cheery, lightweight fun without taking itself too seriously. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 31, 2014
3/5 46% Last Vegas (2013) While it's as tacky and obvious as Sin City itself, this comedy is watchable thanks to a lively pace and spirited turns from Kline and Steenburgen. An unabashed old-timers' fantasy. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 30, 2013
3/5 69% Powder Room (2013) A frank and fitfully funny look at female friendship ‐ Time Out
Posted Dec 2, 2013
3/5 58% Day of the Flowers (2013) Pretty Cuban landscapes and the graceful Acosta are the highlights of this slight but winsome road trip romance. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Nov 25, 2013
3/5 67% Turbo (2013) Kids should be game for the ride, and the colourful characters offer humour and poignancy. ‐ Time Out
Posted Oct 15, 2013
2/5 17% Harrigan (2013) Visually stylised and filled with a sense of impending doom, 'Harrigan' feels more like post-apocalyptic sci-fi than a nostalgic cop saga. ‐ Time Out
Posted Sep 17, 2013
4/5 92% In a World... (2013) Like her character, Bell has made herself a contender in a male-dominated industry. And a damn funny one at that. ‐ Time Out
Posted Sep 10, 2013
3/5 50% Thanks For Sharing (2013) The Kids Are All Right writer Stuart Blumberg's first directorial effort is a frothy affair with typically strong turns from Ruffalo and Paltrow. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 9, 2013
3/5 75% You're Next (2013) Fairly routine brunette-fighting-for-survival stuff with a liberal dose of dark humour. ‐ Time Out
Posted Aug 27, 2013
4/5 85% The Way Way Back (2013) This film's masterstroke is showing everything from Duncan's point of view, without the traditional cloying narration. ‐ Time Out
Posted Aug 27, 2013
3/5 63% One Direction: This Is Us (2013) 1D in 3D: the closest thing to a Shine A Light for Directioners. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 25, 2013
3/5 53% Lovelace (2013) Linda's feelings are rarely revealed: that's left to the gloomy final act, which feels more like a guilt-inducing postscript than a genuine reveal. ‐ Time Out
Posted Aug 21, 2013
2/5 12% The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (2013) [It] gets off to an entertaining, action-packed start ... But it's soon bogged down by an increasingly convoluted plot, an overindulgent running time and absurd dialogue. ‐ Time Out
Posted Aug 21, 2013
4/5 87% What Maisie Knew (2013) The young Aprile is a standout in a moving, hard-hitting and surprising adaptation of the Henry James novel. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 19, 2013
1/5 No Score Yet Get Lucky (2013) Ropier than a flax sandwich, this by-the-numbers Brit thriller has the numbers in all the wrong order. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 5, 2013
2/5 43% Red 2 (2013) Ultimately, it's popcorn nihilism without the big laughs that helped distract from the casual approach to life and death in 'Red'. ‐ Time Out
Posted Jul 30, 2013
3/5 65% The Heat (2013) The cruder gags won't win everyone over, but McCarthy and Bullock's chemistry helps paper over the plot cracks and there's enough situation comedy to entertain. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jul 28, 2013
4/5 94% Blancanieves (2013) The running time is a bit indulgent, but the journey is delightful. ‐ Time Out
Posted Jul 9, 2013
3/5 25% Trap For Cinderella (2013) Solid genre fare. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jul 8, 2013
3/5 34% Summer in February (2014) While the melodrama occasionally grates, this works as a raw romance and an intriguing glimpse of a bold and brash artist ahead of his time. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 9, 2013
3/5 64% Epic (2013) While it's not a crossover classic, this has enough wit and charm to entertain both big and little people. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted May 20, 2013
3/5 57% All Stars (2013) 'All Stars' is funny and enthusiastic enough to entertain kids, if not their elder siblings, who may not buy this scrubbed-up version of teenaged Britain. ‐ Time Out
Posted Apr 30, 2013
1/5 26% 21 And Over (2013) A Porkies-lite college comedy that offers virtually nothing by way of laughs. Avoid. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 28, 2013
3/5 12% Safe Haven (2013) Hallström is an old pro at navigating this kind of undemandingly dramatic yarn and does a pretty fine job with Sparks' story. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 25, 2013
3/5 63% The Liability (2013) A blackly effective British road movie fuelled by the easy chemistry between the two leads. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 17, 2013
4/5 94% Lore (2013) Shortland's measured pacing and hypnotic visuals make this a mesmerising journey through a defeated landscape. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 17, 2013
3/5 65% Unfinished Song (2013) With Redgrave on top form and the story's moving take on devotion in the face of death, your tear ducts will be powerless to resist. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 17, 2013
3/5 86% Ballroom Dancer (2013) An insightful portrait of the problems of falling from grace and working with your lover, even if the editing may throw more shade on Kryklyvyy than he deserves. ‐ Time Out
Posted Jan 15, 2013
2/5 36% Cheerful Weather For The Wedding (2012) The film builds up to something that never comes. ‐ Time Out
Posted Jan 8, 2013
3/5 79% Quartet (2013) A frothy and often charming directorial effort from Hoffman, his first in a Hollywood career that's spanned five decades, that will keep Downton fans happy. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 31, 2012
2/5 3% Playing for Keeps (2012) Everyone involved deserves a script with more wit, originality and sense of purpose. ‐ Time Out
