T-Meter Title | Year
90% Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) A dark and sombre film that is spookier but less amusing than the first two. - Teletext EDIT

82% Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004) Moore portrays Bush as a thicko hick who spent 42% of his first eight months in office on vacation. - Teletext EDIT

89% Shrek 2 (2004) 'Like a spoonful of sugar, this subversive fable goes down delightfully.' - Teletext EDIT

87% Bad Education (2004) 'With its glorious Technicolor-style palette, the look is reminiscent of the director's '80s work like Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown.' - Teletext EDIT

4/5 84% Kill Bill: Volume 2 (2004) The death of her daughter is her driving inspiration. The Bride is motivated by love, and that theme is even more resonant in Vol. 2. - Teletext EDIT

4/5 48% Vertical Limit (2000) This rockumentary leaves Vertical Limit and Cliffhanger in the powder snow. The men's versions of the events are fascinating, often amusing and blatantly honest. - Teletext EDIT

3/5 61% Stuck on You (2003) The Farrelly Brothers go soft in their old age with this shockingly inoffensive comedy about a pair of conjoined twins. - Teletext EDIT

5/5 71% Cold Mountain (2003) Kidman's locks gets mysteriously re-highlighted during the Civil War's most depressed period - maybe Zellweger's Ruby was as handy with foils as pitchforks. - Teletext EDIT

2/5 66% The Last Samurai (2003) Before you can say "I'm turning Japanese I really think so" he's learnt the way of the samurai and become Japanese in every way except that he's Tom Cruise, all American hero. - Teletext EDIT

2/5 68% Laurel Canyon (2003) No matter how many times she pushes her specs up her nose Beckinsale is never going to be believable as a nerd. Bale as a psychiatrist: it's easier to envisage him as Batman. - Teletext EDIT

2/5 39% The Singing Detective (2003) Robert Downey Jr gives an impressively depraved performance but can't make this confused movie hum. - Teletext EDIT

3/5 58% Cypher (2002) Northam is perfectly cast - with every swill of scotch he transforms from shy and retiring to the debonair sophisticate he has always wanted to be. - Teletext EDIT

2/5 41% The Lizzie McGuire Movie (2003) Lizzie may be cheesy and disappointingly straight-laced but all in all she's a bit of fun. - Teletext EDIT

2/5 23% Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003) Barely scary, but it is amusing. - Teletext EDIT

2/5 61% Gerry (2003) One of those films that are better in hindsight - you won't forget the scenery and the torture of enduring it. See it if you're a masochist, don't bother if you're not. - Teletext EDIT

4/5 83% Swimming Pool (2003) Rampling and Sagnier are superb. The former is in top form with her portrayal of Sarah's metamorphosis, while her co-star is sensually cool as the elusive young woman. - Teletext EDIT

2/5 25% Lara Croft Tomb Raider - The Cradle of Life (2003) Angelina Jolie's once again strapped on those hilariously-huge fake bazookas, which are about the only things that lift this movie from its celluloid plateau. - Teletext EDIT

2/5 35% What a Girl Wants (2003) The mum, played by Kelly Preston, tells Daphne, "Getting to know yourself is the answer." And we thought this was supposed to be good family fun. - Teletext EDIT

2/5 88% Roger Dodger (2002) Kidd's story is a bitter pill to swallow - many will find the portrayal of Roger as some kind of hero bizarre. - Teletext EDIT

2/5 41% Freddy vs. Jason (2003) One of the few class lines is delivered by a stoner: "That goalie was pissed about something". No doubt that's how fans will be feeling after seeing this. - Teletext EDIT

4/5 79% Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) And shiver me timbers, it works. Not just Depp's crazy voice and Keith Richard-inspired ponce-foonery, but the whole shenanigan. - Teletext EDIT

4/5 91% Whale Rider (2003) Wonderful New Zealand film about a Maori girl's battle to fulfil her destiny. - Teletext EDIT
