Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
64% Cosmopolis (2012) "Just about important enough to be self-important. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Jul 6, 2012
78% Killer Joe (2012) "To pick out any one transgression in Killer Joe is to minimise its overall achievement in crafting one of the least affable movies in recent memory. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Jul 6, 2012
63% The Five-Year Engagement (2012) "Overlong and curiously (wait for it) unengaging. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Jul 5, 2012
73% The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) "Horror of Giant Lizard < Horror of Adolescence " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Jun 28, 2012
41% Rock of Ages (2012) "As the tagline says, Rock of Ages is nothin' but a good time. Sometimes, it's even less. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Jun 11, 2012
43% On the Road (2012) "Salles's film revels in the spirit of adventure espoused by beatniks Sal and Dean but is also awake to their all-consuming selfishness, regularly undercutting the free-spirited chaos with a few much-needed reality checks. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted May 24, 2012
74% Killing Them Softly (2012) "Built on dynamic set pieces and jet black humour, it's reminiscent of last year's Drive. It's a shame then, that Dominik saddles the film with a heavy-handed political subtext that would echo much louder if it spoke a little quieter. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted May 22, 2012
94% Moonrise Kingdom (2012) "An absolute smash. It's a gloriously overemotional tale of two pre-teen lovers full of lime-soaked scenery and pleasingly stilted 1960s telephone conversations. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted May 16, 2012
53% Dr Seuss' The Lorax (2012) "For all its good intentions, there's something deeply unsettling about this bubblegum pop approach to environmentalism. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Apr 30, 2012
85% 21 Jump Street (2012) "Feels like it's doing something new with the teen genre, while still acknowledging its debt to the classics that came before it. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Apr 29, 2012
88% Titanic (1997) "The most breezy 194 minutes ever to grace the multiplex. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Apr 29, 2012
78% Jeff Who Lives at Home (2012) "Treads similar ground to Cyrus but with slightly diminished returns, despite solid performances from A-list leads Segel and Helms. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Apr 29, 2012
55% V/H/S (2012) "You'd be surprised how often V/H/S stumbles into something truly ingenious as it tears its way through genre conventions, stock characters and countless dramatic tonal shifts. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Apr 29, 2012
79% Tiny Furniture (2010) "Endearingly frank. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Apr 29, 2012
60% Uncle Kent (2014) "At 72 minutes, it's hardly a big ask. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Apr 29, 2012
34% Battleship (2012) "The effects shots are so complex and protracted that they're little more than unintelligible tangles of water and steel, washing over the audience in a wave of vague expense. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Apr 29, 2012
43% American Reunion (2012) "Tonally, American Reunion is closer to Hall Pass or The Dilemma than its own ancestors. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Apr 29, 2012
54% American Wedding (2003) "The franchise's most expensive entry is also its most disappointing. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Apr 29, 2012
52% American Pie 2 (2001) "Our second encounter with the Class of '99 is unashamedly similar to (but way slicker than) its predecessor. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Apr 29, 2012
61% American Pie (1999) "It works as well as it does because the central cast - equal parts male and female, lest we forget - are all so uniformly endearing. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Apr 29, 2012
No Score Yet The Story Of Film: An Odyssey (2012) "One of the most staggeringly comprehensive cinematic histories ever told. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Apr 29, 2012
58% The Englishman Who Went up a Hill But Came Down A Mountain (1995) "Reeks unmistakably of contractual obligation. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Mar 4, 2012
12% The Darkest Hour (2011) "One accusation commonly levelled at films like Transformers is that they're big on budget but light on ideas. The Darkest Hour falls short on both fronts. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Mar 4, 2012
66% The Woman in Black (2012) "Mopey, po-faced rubbish. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Mar 4, 2012
46% Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (2012) "Feels like a Very Special Episode of a hopelessly lightweight kids TV show, misguidedly attempting to have its say on an issue it can barely comprehend, let alone interpret. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Mar 4, 2012
77% Kid-Thing (2013) "Fans of mindlessly smashing things to pieces with blunt instruments will go crazy for Kid-Thing. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Mar 4, 2012
82% Shadow Dancer (2013) "Shadow Dancer delights in the refreshingly unpredictable game of cat and mouse that plays out between Owen and Riseborough. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Mar 4, 2012
No Score Yet The Riddle (2007) "Jacobi is working at full steam as both the tramp and Dickens, his dedication to the project matched only by Vanessa Redgrave's complete lack of interest. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Mar 4, 2012
57% Albert Nobbs (2012) "Awful, but memorable. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Mar 4, 2012
28% Project X (2012) "The 'narrative' scenes between Project X's three unknown leads feel like weird, boring interludes in the midst of a reasonably exciting 90-minute music video. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Mar 4, 2012
94% Hugo (2011) "As $150million public service announcements about the importance of the film preservation movement go, this is one of the best. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Dec 23, 2011
7% New Year's Eve (2011) "New Year's Eve is pretty much laugh-free, trading on tired visual gags and some unbelievably cynical 'cutesy' scenes (baby montage anyone?) for most of its humour. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Dec 23, 2011
74% Margaret (2011) "Complex and elusive, the film weaves so many utterly believable and often devastating narrative strands that you wish Lonergan had got his way and released his initial 4hr cut " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Dec 23, 2011
60% Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011) "Two straight man inadvertently ending up in a scenario in which they appear to be homosexual can no longer be described as the height of comedic sophistication. " ‐ Ultra Culture

Posted Nov 29, 2011
83% My Week with Marilyn (2011) "A little too hopped up on biopic cliches to say anything particularly interesting or even coherent. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Nov 29, 2011
49% The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010) "This may be Slade's film but it's Summit's franchise, so any individuality he might wish to imbue in Eclipse comes a distant second to the needs of the series at large. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Nov 17, 2011
84% Puss in Boots (2011) "Time and time again, Puss coats his true desires in a thick veneer of synthetic heterosexuality. " ‐ Ultra Culture

Posted Nov 9, 2011
68% Tower Heist (2011) "Not entirely cringeworthy. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Nov 7, 2011
36% In Time (2011) "In Time fills its dynamic, sprawling universe with about as much character and drama as a half-hour game of Sim City. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Nov 7, 2011

Posted Oct 25, 2011
84% The Ides of March (2011) "It's hardly revolutionising the world of political drama with its tale of sacrificed ethics and systemic corruption, but you can't deny it's competence. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Oct 25, 2011
86% Terri (2011) "Funny and perky but unlike most Fox Searchlight films, never saccharine. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Oct 25, 2011
76% Damsels in Distress (2012) "If Easy A was Mean Girls's copycat little sister, then Damsels is her impossibly cool older cousin. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Oct 25, 2011
30% The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) (2011) "It's clear what director Tom Six considers the movie: an endurance test, to be tolerated by the loyal and condemned by the ignorant and the feeble. " ‐ Ultra Culture
Posted Oct 17, 2011
95% Weekend (2011) "A heartfelt romantic comedy, a touching rumination on sexual identity and a striking look at what it is to be gay in 21st Century Britain. " ‐ Ultra Culture
