3/5 88% It Comes At Night (2017) The pacing and lack of gore/information might not play well with a mainstream crowd, but Shults's drawing out of tension without relying on clichés makes for a fascinating (and sweaty) watch.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

1/5 15% Nine Lives (2016) I watched Nine Lives the other day...it was awful.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 91% Good Time (2017) Even a deliberately flat ending escapes criticism, highlighting the brutal naturalism of the piece. The Safdies are following the old adage of always leave them wanting more, which is exactly what you want after a Good Time. ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

3/5 66% Victoria & Abdul (2017) It's charming, whimsical, and at times even a joy to watch, just don't think too hard about what it all means. ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

5/5 100% Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D (2017) Incredibly, 26 years after its release, T2 stills feels fresh not only technologically but also thematically: threat of nuclear war, military weaponry, extreme ideology and the overwhelming sense that we're living on borrowed time.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

5/5 95% Call Me by Your Name (2018) Sultry and oh-so sexy, Call Me By Your Name is a masterful piece and romantic enough to win over even the hardest of hearts.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

5/5 91% Brawl in Cell Block 99 (2017) Brawl In Cell Block 99 will get all up in your face, your brain and your stomach and make you see Vince Vaughn in a whole new light.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

2/5 46% Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015) It's a bit bland and won't leave you particularly hungry for more.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 27% Pan (2015) Creating a gritty backstory for a 12-year-old can't have been easy, but director Joe Wright pulls it off with great aplomb, making it one of the most entertaining visits to Neverland so far.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 94% Room (2015) Room still manages to be strangely uplifting, and there is light and warmth beyond the darkness if you can bear to hold on that long.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

3/5 25% London Has Fallen (2016) There are some genuine moments of comedy, thanks in part to the (deliberately?) clunky script and hokey special effects. Don't question why, just strap yourself in and feel the cheese.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

2/5 30% Criminal (2016) To a certain extent it does work, at times being both mildly thrilling and outlandish, but is never enough of one or the other to really stick.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

2/5 28% Warcraft (2016) It's frustrating that a director as talented as Duncan Jones comes up short with his first turn at a big budget movie.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

3/5 35% Now You See Me 2 (2016) It's corny and it's predictable but there's an underlying charm that almost blindsides you, and its embrace of its ridiculousness is a definite improvement on its predecessor.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

2/5 32% The Expendables 3 (2014) The action pieces are huge and impressive but it's all bang and no flash - that is, it's about explosions rather than exposition. You won't learn anything about the nuances of acting or the futility of war, but you may get a headache.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

3/5 44% 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) For a film that's trying to outdo its predecessor in every way possible, Rise falls a bit short. It still looks glorious, retaining that distinctive chromatic style and gloomy colour palette for that essential comic-book look.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

3/5 41% Divergent (2014) Trust me when I say that, for some reason, stick with the saga in the event that the sequels will all materialise, because the ultimate pay off when you discover what it's all for will be definitely worth it.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

2/5 14% Blended (2014) To summarise in as few words possible: it is a film, it has people in it, the lighting is adequate and there's a monkey band playing Careless Whisper. Can I go home now and stare into the dark abyss that is my life please?‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 51% Maleficent (2014) [Disney] has learned plenty from Pixar's special move of subverting traditional perceptions of good and evil, mixing it with the love of a good origins story (à la Marvel) and with an added dash of wry humour that works for kids and grown ups alike.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

2/5 74% The Falling (2015) The end result is a mish-mash of promising ideas lost in naff filmmaking.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

2/5 29% Insurgent (2015) I said of Divergent last year that it was worth sticking around for the eventual pay-off and that still rings true, but the next installments will have to deliver a pretty heavy payload because Insurgent is hardly likely to start an uprising.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

5/5 96% What We Do In The Shadows (2015) It's warm, charming and hilarious - I could have died from laughing.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

1/5 66% The Rewrite (2015) The Rewrite tries so hard to be a knowing fish-out-of-water romcom, when it contains neither romance nor comedy. Any sentimentality or sweetness is completely wrung out within the first half an hour.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 65% The Maze Runner (2014) As 'yoof' films go... it's an entertaining watch and doesn't take too much investment.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

3/5 36% Before I Go to Sleep (2014) There are a lot of decent jolts and pregnant pauses that build to an unexpectedly emotional ending - there won't be that much new if you've read the book, but it's still an intriguing premise all the same.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

2/5 25% As Above, So Below (2014) It just isn't scary or clever enough and doesn't really gain momentum until a last minute dash towards a toe-curlingly obvious resolution.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

2/5 73% The Congress (2014) Ari Folman's follow up to the impressive Waltz With Bashir is bold, daringly different and visually arresting, but it's also a bit too much.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

3/5 73% What If (2014) While it won't teach you much more about love other than the perfect recipe for a deep-fried peanut butter sandwich, it will make you feel warm and fuzzy for a little while.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 95% Amy (2015) The film will leave you feeling exhausted -- it's vibrant, haunting and, I've probably overused it, but also overwhelmingly sad.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 74% Ghostbusters (2016) From start to end this film is just pure joy, a lot of which is borne from the fact that the original is so much fun that there's no point trying to lay those ghosts to rest.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
