Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 51% The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013) There are great moments throughout, but I couldn't help feeling this was largely a wild fantasy on the part of Stiller, who is not a talented straight actor, and who has effortfully stretched the original story beyond all recognition.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 94% All Is Lost (2013) It is a bold and masterful film, and Redford is great.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

2/5 67% The Railway Man (2014) I don't know if there's a right way to show torture, but there are certainly lots of wrong ways, one being The Railway Man, possibly the dullest film about torture I've ever seen.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

3/5 95% 12 Years a Slave (2013) This isn't a film about oppression, it is a luscious meditation on sadism and cruelty.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 78% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) The result is a superb performance from DiCaprio as the swaggering, shouting bastard, and probably Scorsese's best film in 15 years.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

2/5 65% August: Osage County (2013) One movie I would pay not to see again is August: Osage County. The new Meryl Streep does the one thing a film should never do: it still feels like a play.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 93% Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) This is a spooky and brilliant film that forces the viewer not simply to feel, like so many big crowdpleasers, but to think.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 77% The Invisible Woman (2013) This is everything a period drama almost never is: underplayed, witty, poignant and, above all, real.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 93% Dallas Buyers Club (2013) What is remarkable is how brilliantly McConaughey has unpacked the role, in spite of being handed such an unlikely ragbag of attributes.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

3/5 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) Is there a word beyond hysterical? This isn't just hysterical, it's life-shortening. ‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 94% Her (2013) There are times when Her feels like genius, and times when it feels like one long and painful call to a call centre, because that's exactly what it is.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 93% Stranger by the Lake (2014) This is a tale of danger and desires and extremely gay sportswear: possibly the Frenchest film I have ever seen.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

2/5 75% Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014) The horrors of sex never make cosy viewing, just as the horrors of sex addiction never make interesting plots.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

1/5 46% The Book Thief (2013) The film has essentially been commissioned on the say-so of pinot-guzzling, chick-lit-licking chocoholics, and it shows. Boy, it's dull and pointless.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 59% Non-Stop (2014) Liam Neeson! He has really cornered the Hollywood market in lone mad dads. If you want a crazed drunk giant running around waving two guns and at least one mobile phone and/or a bottle of whisky, call the star of Schindler's List.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

3/5 91% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) The theme seems to be a kind of late-Edwardian Euro whimsy along Wodehousian lines... except that Wodehouse was really funny, and Anderson really isn't. ‐ Sunday Times (UK)

1/5 43% 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) This really is the schlockiest and cringiest sequel ever.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 99% Starred Up (2014) O'Connell gives a steaming and screaming performance as Eric, a broken young man who has spent his life being slammed by his father.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

2/5 34% Labor Day (2014) [Jason Reitman] has taken himself far too seriously, producing a film so ruminative and honeyed and dull that the final scenes start to resemble a terrifying and treacly recurring dream, in which no one seems to be able to leave town.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2018
1/5 73% Neighbors (2014) Bad Neighbours is... a thumping, screaming, appallingly moronic comedy that will make anyone with a working pair of ears and eyes never want to see a film again.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

3/5 28% Pompeii (2014) There's not a single gesture that isn't a cliché, not a single line of script that isn't a stage direction or harvested shamelessly from Wikipedia.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

2/5 90% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) An appalling, bloated film. This franchise is vast and twee -- and over.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 85% 22 Jump Street (2014) About once a year, a film bursts out of nowhere that's simply the funniest thing since the last funniest film of the summer. This one is a sharp, smart and hilarious frat comedy that's everything Bad Neighbours should have been, but wasn't.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

1/5 12% Grace Of Monaco (2014) The whole thing feels like such a poor excuse for a film: a laughable, over-frotted tissue of pompoms and camp footmen in which a charity ball is presented as a credible diplomatic manoeuvre as well as an important plotline.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

2/5 85% Joe (2014) The film turns out to be a sprawling disaster, something that not so much lacks direction, but actively opposes coherence on principle.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2018
2/5 59% Hercules (2014) I'm sorry, but having no mythical beasts in a film about the greatest mythical beast-slayer ever is pretty much a money-back scenario for me. I kept thinking: where are the monsters?‐ Sunday Times (UK)

3/5 77% Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon (2014) He's brilliant! He's funny! He's a genius! He's a total lothario! This is seriously the only thing anyone says for the entire convulsing 1 1/2 hours.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 95% Finding Vivian Maier (2014) What a stunning and eerie film it is.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

3/5 67% The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared (2015) Altogether it's pretty weird, a mishmash of ideas and atonal moments that is far less than the sum of its parts.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

1/5 24% Tammy (2014) I call this a typical summer-house movie: films stars do because they fancy a fourth home in Napa.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

3/5 87% Chef (2014) It's a pacy, sometimes funny and inoffensive film in spite of Favreau.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

2/5 85% Cold in July (2014) I have never seen a film eat itself in the space of a single scene change. But the moment Sonny Crockett swaggers in, Cold in July collapses in less time than it takes to light a wet fart.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

4/5 100% Of Horses and Men (2015) The Icelandic film Of Horses and Men is unlike anything I've seen this year, a weird and beautiful comedy.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

2/5 78% The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet (2015) I simply can't recommend it. Too meandering, too dull; and not even saved by the glorious Helena Bonham Carter.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

3/5 83% Belle (2014) Belle is 12 Years a Slave written by Legally Blonde's Elle Woods: a frothing bonnet-athon that owes more to Jane Austen than it does to William Wilberforce.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

66% The Rover (2014) If only the director had had the confidence to tell him to do 50% less, this would have been an excellent performance. Pattinson is well cast as a confused redneck.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

73% The Congress (2014) It isn't brilliant, outrageous and challenging. But it is pretty and occasionally fun. So go for the first half, then leave.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

3/5 36% Before I Go to Sleep (2014) A perfectly serviceable thriller, with a few good twists and some properly frightening moments. ‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2018
1/5 17% Sex Tape (2014) Nothing in this film works. It has clearly been put together by people who have been given an idea via conference call of what a film looks like and sounds like, but have no idea how to fit everything together.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

3/5 87% A Most Wanted Man (2014) So stylish that no one seems able to bring themselves to say exactly what's happening.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

2/5 92% Pride (2014) What a big mess of locations and ideas and thoughts and terrible hairpieces this film is.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

2/5 51% Magic in the Moonlight (2014) What's happened is what happens with all bad Allen films: he's flipped open his typewriter and it's just come out wrong.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2018
2/5 65% The Riot Club (Posh) (2015) What a sad missed opportunity it is -- a poorly written squirmathon that is the most appalling film about Oxford I have ever seen, which is saying something given the 1990s rowing horror True Blue.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2018
1/5 42% Life After Beth (2014) This is a weird mess from start to finish.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2018
4/5 87% Gone Girl (2014) You must go -- you must GO, even though I can't actually tell you why, because Pike and Affleck are excellent, perfectly cast as a pair of flinty, empty lovers at the centre of this flinty, empty anti-romcom.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2018
5/5 95% '71 (2015) This is one of the most extraordinary films I've seen this year, a knuckle-mashing, head-smashing, Tommy-bashing tour de force.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2018
2/5 42% Effie Gray (2015) This is the worst period drama of the year, and the whole cast know it.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2018
2/5 16% Serena (2015) This is a film that is epically ridiculous -- unbelievable in every way, simply impossible to act even for Lawrence, who struggles with the preposterous gear changes through hooker-grade make-up.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2018
3/5 76% Fury (2014) Oh God, this is a clumping, silly, unsophisticated film, and oh God, I quite loved it.‐ Sunday Times (UK)

5/5 95% Nightcrawler (2014) What a slick and thrilling vampire B-movie this is.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
