Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
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

4/5 83% 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 86% Kiss the Water (2013) A wee treasure.‐ Metro (UK)

3/5 79% Exposed (2014) The documentary's format is a little repetitive but the content is interesting and, at times, inspiring.‐ Metro (UK)

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)

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)

5/5 92% Philomena (2013) Despite its weighty themes, Stephen Frears' film is almost as much a comedy as a drama. ‐ Metro (UK)

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 56% 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 57% 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 74% Paradise: Love (2013) A challenging and frequently uncomfortable watch that messes with your sympathies. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
2/5 34% 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 49% 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 26% 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 32% 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 33% 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 (2017) The story feels cobbled together and the dialogue is often painful.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2017
3/5 89% 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 83% 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
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2017
2/5 44% Everything, Everything (2017) You'd have to be very young and naive not to see the twist coming, but perhaps that is the point.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2017
3/5 38% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) 'The Hitman's Bodyguard' is not exactly killing it, but coasts on the charisma of its central stars.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2017
3/5 68% The Wall (2017) The increasingly impressive Taylor-Johnson dominates the screen time.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2017
3/5 48% Wilson (2017) The film's bouts of slapstick and sentiment sit slightly oddly with its downbeat tone, but Harrelson is consistently funny.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2017
3/5 64% Detour (2017) Sheridan, Cohen and Powley are a terrific trio in a stylish crime thriller that takes us on a trip through the seedy side of California and beyond.‐ Empire Magazine
Read More | Posted May 25, 2017
3/5 75% Miss Sloane (2016) Hard to root for but mesmerising to watch, Sloane is expertly portrayed by Chastain in this dialogue-heavy lobbyist thriller that should please fans of both actor and genre.‐ Empire Magazine
Read More | Posted May 15, 2017
3/5 58% The Light Between Oceans (2016) Vikander and Fassbender are riveting in a handsome period drama that begins beautifully, but becomes increasingly contrived as it tries to wring as much drama as possible from its set-up.‐ Empire Magazine
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2016
3/5 94% Ethel & Ernest (2016) If the first 15 minutes of Up were set in London, animated by Raymond Briggs and stretched into a feature-length film, it might look a bit like this.‐ Empire Magazine
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2016
3/5 84% Imperium (2016) The most memorable scenes come from True Blood's Sam Trammell as a warm, cultured family man who explains his racial hatred in a matter-of-fact manner: particularly chilling in the current political climate.‐ Empire Magazine
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2016
4/5 82% Julieta (2016) A slick, stylish melodrama with an involving story and a cracking cast. Star Adriana Ugarte is a real find.‐ Empire Magazine
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2016
3/5 73% The Carer (2015) Cox will always be watchable, and goes for it here, but the film's makers seem not to know the potential of their own film.‐ Empire Magazine
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2016
3/5 65% Nerve (2016) Other films -- including David Fincher's The Game (1997) -- have done this better, but with its engaging story, energetic soundtrack and slick production values, Nerve is an easy watch for restless young minds.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2016
3/5 74% The BFG (2016) Giant expectations may lead to tiny disappointments in this two-hander that's slow in parts. But it still offers magic and visual delights, and the final act is a treat.‐ Empire Magazine
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2016
4/5 24% The Silent Storm (2014) Riseborough steals the show in a moody period drama loaded with atmosphere and tension.‐ Empire Magazine
Read More | Posted May 19, 2016
4/5 100% Chicken (2016) An enjoyable, involving British drama with an impressive turn from newcomer Scott Chambers.‐ Empire Magazine
Read More | Posted May 19, 2016
4/5 85% Departure (2015) A sensitive, sensual and occasionally amusing portrait of teenaged obsession with a winning turn from Lawther.‐ Empire Magazine
Read More | Posted May 19, 2016
3/5 87% Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) A fizzy, funny, period dramedy with top-notch performances, Florence Foster Jenkins doesn't take many risks but it's a very entertaining experience.‐ Empire Magazine
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2016
3/5 48% How To Be Single (2016) Aiming squarely at Carries, Mirandas, Charlottes and Samanthas, How To Be Single is familiar but fun.‐ Empire Magazine
