Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 53% Freak Show (2018) As Billy, Lawther gives a fabulous, bravura performance - well, half bravura, half mascara.‐ Daily Mail (UK)

4/5 77% In the Fade (Aus dem Nichts) (2017) As a whole, this is a really terrific film, and timely, too, with the violent Far Right on the march across Europe.‐ Daily Mail (UK)

2/5 26% Overboard (2018) Aptly, for a film about an amnesiac, you'll forget it the moment you leave the cinema.‐ Daily Mail (UK)

31% Super Troopers 2 (2018) A pretty idiotic, boorish affair, with loads - and I really do mean loads - of feeble phallus gags.‐ Daily Mail (UK)

74% The Happy Prince (2018) Plainly, this is a passion project - and happily Everett (making his directorial debut) does his celebrated subject full justice...‐ Daily Mail (UK)

89% Hereditary (2018) Aster, who somewhat alarmingly is said to have been inspired by his own family experiences to make this film, announces himself as a serious talent.‐ Daily Mail (UK)

67% Ocean's 8 (2018) This is the best of the Ocean-going films since 2001.‐ Daily Mail (UK)

4/5 100% McQueen (2018) A sad, fascinating tale.‐ Daily Mail (UK)

4/5 62% The Boy Downstairs (2018) It really is very easy to believe in - another rarity for a romcom.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2018
3/5 51% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Co-writers Colin Trevorrow (who directed last time) and Derek Connolly are evidently aware that for these films not to face extinction themselves, a lively undercurrent of wit is required.‐ Daily Mail (UK)

3/5 60% The Bromley Boys (2018) If you do feel you need a football fix in what for some of us is a brief, blessed respite before the World Cup, I recommend it for its warmth and knockabout energy - and a great soundtrack.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted May 31, 2018
2/5 53% Book Club (2018) It sounds like fun, and possibly would be, were it not for a screenplay that appears to have been written by a sixth-former with a bit of help from his game old grandma.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted May 31, 2018
2/5 15% The Little Vampire 3D (2017) An unnecessarily convoluted story about a 13-year-old American boy who befriends a vampire of the same age will fly over the heads of the target audience and bore accompanying grown-ups.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted May 24, 2018
2/5 17% Show Dogs (2018) By the time that Show Dogs yaps to a conclusion, you might find the charm of a crime caper involving talking animals has not just worn off, but has been entirely extinguished.‐ Daily Mail (UK)

4/5 69% On Chesil Beach (2018) It really is a deeply affecting film.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
4/5 82% Deadpool 2 (2018) Deadpool 2 is even more ribald and subversive than the first film, and pulsates with sardonic, self-aware wit from the opening shot.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
52% The House That Jack Built (2018) One of the most gratuitously nasty, offensive movies it has ever been my misfortune to endure.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
3/5 71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) The action zips along, with the help of some predictably terrific special effects, but as a whole it feels more functional than exhilarating.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
3/5 96% BlacKkKlansman (2018) Black KkKlansman tells a story well worth knowing.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted May 16, 2018
2/5 47% How to Talk to Girls at Parties (2018) Too much of the weirdness seems self-indulgent, less for the gratification of the audience than for that of the director and his cast.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
3/5 25% 7 Days in Entebbe (2018) Ultimately, Entebbe delivers a worthwhile history lesson. But as a thriller, it fails by a distance to be as nail-bitingly tense and dramatic as the event it chronicles.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
29% Sherlock Gnomes (2018) Whether anyone really yearned for a sequel to Gnomeo And Juliet, I'm not sure, but a seven-year interval seems about right.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
4/5 100% Nothing Like a Dame (Tea With the Dames) (2018) The rapport between this formidable quartet is palpable, and they all contribute some delightful stories.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted May 3, 2018
92% Lean on Pete (2018) It's a tremendously watchable performance from Plummer, and a film well worth seeing.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted May 3, 2018
2/5 33% I Feel Pretty (2018) It could have done, dare I say, with a makeover.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted May 3, 2018
4/5 87% Tully (2018) Cody was childless when she wrote Juno and she's now a mother of two. It shows.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted May 3, 2018
4/5 94% Beast (2018) A gripping and well-told story, and by any measure a hugely promising debut.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
4/5 83% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Whether the wit fizzes or flops, a Marvel movie will always live or die by its action set-pieces. And in this latest adventure, they are truly spectacular...‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
2/5 36% The Leisure Seeker (2018) In the spirit of all bad road-trip films, the Spencers encounter just about every conceivable misadventure. A lecture from a traffic cop, check. A few dangerous swerves, check. A hold-up by a couple of desperadoes, check.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2018
3/5 63% Every Day (2018) It has energy and charm, and it's always nice to see an inversion of the standard horror-film trope of good people being possessed by evil spirits.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2018
4/5 74% Funny Cow (2017) Peake gives a ferocious, bravura performance as the title character, whose actual name is never revealed.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2018
3/5 79% The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (2018) I dare say the book makes more of the bonding power of literature, but veteran director Mike Newell lets that message melt away as, with moderate success, he swaddles us in gentle escapism.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2018
2/5 14% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) As I was trudging out of this very silly movie, a friend dared me to give it five stars. Instead, I told the truth: that I wasn't sure whether it even deserved two.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
4/5 93% Custody (Jusqu'à la garde) (2018) The stand-out performance, amid lots of exceptionally fine acting, is by young Gioria.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
3/5 52% Rampage (2018) A film twice as preposterous as it is exhilarating, yet twice as exhilarating as any other movie you can think of in which a gorilla, a wolf and an alligator-armadillo hybrid attempt to flatten downtown Chicago.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2018
3/5 91% Love, Simon (2018) Robinson is an immensely engaging lead, and Simon's tricky predicament, while rendered rather simplistically at times, rings true.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2018
4/5 86% Thoroughbreds (2018) A psychological thriller heavier on psychology than thrills, yet gripping from enigmatic start to chilling finish, Thoroughbreds is a remarkably accomplished debut from writer-director, Cory Finley.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2018
4/5 82% Ghost Stories (2018) While there are plenty of standard horror-film tropes, Ghost Stories is also full of originality. It is an ingeniously crafted and properly scary film.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2018
5/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) Although it feels irreverent, not to say dangerous, to offer everyone involved in this brilliant film a loud round of applause, that's what they deserve.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2018
3/5 84% Journeyman (2017) If it's possible to admire a film without quite believing in it, that's how I feel about Journeyman.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2018
4/5 83% Blockers (2018) Amid all the riotous slapstick (and, in truth, one or two gross-out scenes that veer a bit too close to The In-Betweeners films for my liking), there's a surprisingly punchy, sophisticated wit.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2018
4/5 90% Isle of Dogs (2018) It's silly, charming, exquisitely animated and gloriously original, if just a little bit barking.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2018
4/5 73% Ready Player One (2018) It's a whole lot of CGI fun going along for the ride, even one that lasts two hours and 19 minutes.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2018
2/5 35% Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House (2017) The biggest flaws are in the script, which contains some real howlers.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
3/5 80% Unsane (2018) Most Soderbergh films are worth seeing, and this one is no exception.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
2/5 43% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) Its 111 minutes feel like 1,011, as duelling giant robots trample skyscrapers in vague service of yet another plot about a world on the brink of apocalypse.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
2/5 40% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) It is satisfyingly starry, visually stimulating - and a bit of a mess.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2018
3/5 63% Peter Rabbit (2018) I heard the under-tens laughing merrily, and maybe that should be the only test of a good children's film; not how far it diverges from the much-loved original book.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
2/5 42% Mary Magdalene (2018) As sensitive as it is colourless.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
4/5 49% Tomb Raider (2018) Effectively Tomb Raiders Of The Lost Ark, and is none the worse for it.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
