Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 100% The Prince of Nothingwood (2017) Salim Shaheen is known as 'the Ed Wood of Afghanistan', so this documentary is as eccentric as you might expect. ‐ Time Out

4/5 97% Mudbound (2017) Based on Hillary Jordan's novel, Mudbound -- co-adapted on the page by Rees and Virgil Williams -- is emotive but unsentimental: Traversing it feels as authentically gunky as the muddy swamps in which it is set.‐ Time Out

2/5 40% Justice League (2017) DCEU is floundering. It needs to find a bold new direction if it ever hopes to flap its wings, let alone compete with Marvel.‐ Metro (UK)

3/5 58% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) If it's all a little too crowded with characters, Branagh's pacy direction keeps the story zipping along. ‐ Time Out

3/5 52% Jungle (2017) More time could have been spent developing the bond between the men, but ultimately this is quite gripping: a weepie bromance. You don't see one of those every day.‐ Time Out

2/5 13% Geostorm (2017) It'll probably be most appealing to scientists looking for a good laugh.‐ Time Out

3/5 100% Earth: One Amazing Day (2017) It's breathtaking to watch, although its meditative possibilities are limited thanks to Redford's narration and an overbearing orchestral accompaniment.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2017
4/5 100% I Am Not a Witch (2017) A magic realist fable set in present-day Zambia that has plenty to say about gender and superstition. ‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2017
3/5 67% Double Date (2017) Double Date is a fitfully amusing British comedy-horror.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2017
4/5 92% The Party (2018) It's openly theatrical, but if it feels like a film of a play, it's a play you really should see.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2017
3/5 82% Loving Vincent (2017) Part mystery, part visual experiment, 'Loving Vincent' is a reverent ode to the 19th century painter Vincent van Gogh.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2017
3/5 41% The Mountain Between Us (2017) It's a Mills & Boon kind of set up, but Winslet in particular adds authenticity and gravitas.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
3/5 76% The Exception (The Kaiser's Last Kiss) (2017) The dialogue's sometimes clunky, and allusions to the atrocities of war are glossed over. But if you're in the mood for a sexy, pacy period thriller, it does the job. ‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
3/5 64% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) Fans of Pooh and co get enough to make this an informative nostalgia fix.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
4/5 No Score Yet Tawai: A voice from the forest (2017) It's sincere, thought-provoking and gives you space to meditate on its message.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
4/5 90% Zoology (Zoologiya) (2016) If 'Teeth' and 'Raw' got your tail wagging, you'll lap this up.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
4/5 100% Daphne (2017) Daphne is a wisecracking wit who may just resemble women you actually know. Imagine that.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
4/5 86% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Carell's cartoonish antics are funny enough, but the two women are the tale's real champions.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
2/5 51% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) If you thought that the anal sex joke at the end of 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' was the funniest bit, you're in luck.‐ Time Out

3/5 77% Borg vs McEnroe (Borg McEnroe) (2017) The final match is an absolute nail-biter, reminding tennis fans how electric this sport can be.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
2/5 34% American Assassin (2017) Mitch seems not just hot-headed but borderline racist, and neither trait is addressed in a satisfying way.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
4/5 82% The Villainess (Ak-Nyeo) (2017) 'The Long Kiss Goodnight', 'La Femme Nikita', 'Kill Bill'... this South Korean thriller owes a debt to many a great female-assassin thriller, and it's a fun ride for fans of the genre. ‐ Time Out

4/5 87% Kiss the Water (2013) A wee treasure.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
3/5 80% Exposed (2014) The documentary's format is a little repetitive but the content is interesting and, at times, inspiring.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
4/5 100% The Square (Al Midan) (2013) Tipped for an Oscar nomination, Jehane Noujaim's kaleidoscopic documentary offers a gripping, behind-the-headlines account of Egypt's 2011 Tahrir Square uprising and the complexities of its aftermath.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
3/5 81% Crystal Fairy (2013) It should appeal to fans of offbeat character-driven dramas - not to mention fans of Cera himself, who's embracing these morally ambiguous characters with gusto. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
5/5 92% Philomena (2013) Despite its weighty themes, Stephen Frears' film is almost as much a comedy as a drama. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
4/5 83% Drinking Buddies (2013) Not much happens but it has plenty to say. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
85% Snabba cash (Easy Money) (2012) It's overlong and a little muddled in the third act but still a thrilling, energetic watch. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
3/5 57% Bachelorette (2012) The comedy's anarchic tone is refreshing but it leaves little room for heart. You'll laugh, but you might feel a bit hollow inside.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
3/5 63% I Am Nasrine (2013) It's by turns clunkily contrived then wondrously natural (if raw) - let's hope Gharavi, like her heroine, progresses towards greater fulfillment. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
3/5 75% Paradise: Love (2013) A challenging and frequently uncomfortable watch that messes with your sympathies. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
2/5 33% Summer in February (2014) Dan Stevens is the one genuinely likeable element to this dreary Downton-on-Sea.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
2/5 38% Admission (2013) Portia is in many ways a typical [Tina] Fey character but the unfunny and clichéd script too often reminds us this is no 30 Rock.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
3/5 50% Now You See Me (2013) It's a fun set-up with a terrific cast - [Jesse] Eisenberg plays against type as a smooth-talking card trickster while [Woody] Harrelson radiates easy charm as a mentalist and serial flirt. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
4/5 74% Love Is All You Need (2013) [Susanne] Bier's intelligent direction, smart screenplay and canny casting make it a cut above your average middle-aged wish-fulfilment romance. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
4/5 89% Bernie (2012) [Jack] Black is hilarious, all towering tolerance that finally reaches boiling point.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
2/5 25% 21 And Over (2013) Occasionally funny but more frequently excruciating and derivative, 21 & Over is aimed firmly at relative newcomers to the genre. Perhaps it should have been called 21 & Under.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
3/5 38% Dead Man Down (2013) Dead Man Down isn't deeply satisfying but is well filmed and performed - and proof you can make a workable New York thriller with a bunch of Europeans.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
4/5 87% Arbitrage (2012) Pleasing twists and moral dilemmas abound. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
2/5 31% Home Again (2017) It's too superficial to maintain tension as a character-driven drama, and not funny enough to overcome an aimless plot and confused tone.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
3/5 65% Antiviral (2013) Antiviral is a none-too-subtle comment on tabloid-generated fandom. But it's undeniably intriguing and loaded with Cronenbergian atmosphere.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2017
4/5 92% Zero Dark Thirty (2013) This doesn't zip along in the manner of typical Hollywood entertainment but it's memorable cinema with a finale that will stay with you long after viewing. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2017
3/5 34% The Oranges (2012) All in all, perfectly fine thanks to the cast and a fitfully witty script - but nothing to write home about.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2017
1/5 0% Confession of a Child of the Century (2012) Without passion, this slight story is of no interest. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2017
3/5 70% Celeste and Jesse Forever (2012) Celeste and Jesse Forever feels longer than it is, but the chemistry between the two leads Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg more than make up for that. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2017
1/5 0% Stratton (2018) The story feels cobbled together and the dialogue is often painful.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2017
3/5 87% American Made (2017) Liman mines the story for familiar but fun comedy ‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2017
3/5 75% Victoria (2016) An amusing watch, this has a freshness and naturalism rarely found in the typically over-styled French romcom genre‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Aug 23, 2017
4/5 82% Patti Cake$ (2017) The tone balances realism and optimism with the accent on the latter; ultimately Patti Cake$ has the kind of uplifting, defiant-misfit mood that's easy to compare with fellow Sundance hit Little Miss Sunshine.‐ Time Out
