Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
8.5/10 94% Arrival (2016) Arrival is an alien invasion movie for grown-ups; one that's lacking in action, explosions and all-out war, but heavy on tension, drama, and raw emotion. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 7, 2016

Posted Oct 12, 2016
8.5/10 84% The Girl With All the Gifts (2016) Light on gore but heavy on brains, The Girl With All the Gifts delivers what it means to be living, undead or a new combination of the two, with originality and guts. ‐ IGN Movies

Posted Sep 30, 2016
89% Raw (Grave) (2017) Raw is as lyrical a film about cannibalism as you are ever likely to see, so ignore the hype about audience members fainting or being sick, and instead revel in the strange beauty of its twisted tale. ‐ IGN Movies

7/10 75% Beware the Slenderman (2016) Beware the Slenderman is a little long, and rarely an easy watch. But it tells an important story about the dangers of the Internet, and the potentially deadly consequences that exposing the wrong material to the wrong people can have. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jul 29, 2016
7/10 56% Jason Bourne (2016) Jason Bourne has a passable plot and a couple of pulsating sequences, which already makes it better than the majority of action movies. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jul 28, 2016
8/10 100% Man vs. Snake: The Long and Twisted Tale of Nibbler (2015) An emotional rollercoaster that will make you happy and sad and pleased that a guy like Tim McVey is out there, nibbling dots and avoiding his tail, all the while striving for his dream. ‐ IGN Movies

7/10 37% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) If you can leave your social conscience at the door, and don't mind a duff plot and paper-thin characters, you'll find Grimsby to be very, very funny. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Feb 24, 2016
80% Eddie The Eagle (2016) A likeable family film that - much like Eddie's own exploits - is guaranteed to put a big smile on your face. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Feb 12, 2016
25% Kill Your Friends (2016) Kill Your Friends starts out an enjoyably nasty satire of the music industry, but loses focus when a thriller element is thrown into the mix. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 5, 2015
7.2/10 65% Spectre (2015) While it's a stylish feature, the film lacks true substance, with SPECTRE a solid effort but one that falls frustratingly short of greatness. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Oct 22, 2015

7/10 90% Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made (2016) From Heart of Darkness to Lost in La Mancha, there have been many great documentaries about the trials and tribulations of making movies, and Raiders! deserves to takes its place alongside them. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Sep 16, 2015
7/10 15% The Transporter Refueled (2015) The result is a film that's as good as its predecessors, and suggests that Refueled isn't the last that we'll see of this particular incarnation of the Transporter. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Sep 2, 2015
6.6/10 71% The Bad Education Movie (2015) Ultimately there are enough good jokes to make the feature a worthwhile endeavour. ‐ IGN Movies

Posted May 4, 2015

7.5/10 59% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) The best sequence is without doubt the film's first. But the central battle is indeed spectacular, and as 'The Age of Orc' approaches, it rounds out this particular story in stirring and emotional fashion. ‐ IGN Movies

Posted Oct 13, 2014
7.2/10 83% Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead (Død snø 2) (2014) When it's funny, it's laugh-out-loud hilarious. So while the film has weaknesses, it's nevertheless a sequel that actually improves on the original. ‐ IGN Movies

Posted May 30, 2014
7.8/10 69% They Came Together (2014) A film that's as funny as it is silly, twisting every cliché in the rom-com cannon to impressive effect, so much so that you'll never be able to look at a Katherine Heigl movie in the same way again. ‐ IGN Movies

7.5/10 75% Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014) Nymphomaniac is brave, thought-provoking filmmaking from a genuine auteur. ‐ IGN Movies

Posted Mar 12, 2014
8.3/10 91% Frank (2014) If you're willing to go with that - an affectionate character study of a bloke in a massive papier mache head - you'll find Frank to be a richly rewarding film, and the title character to be one you can't help but fall in love with. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 12, 2014
8.5/10 85% Under the Skin (2014) In refusing to spoon-feed the audience information, Glazer's film instead burrows into the brain, the ambiguous nature of proceedings making it all-the-more beguiling. The result is a film that's hard to shake after the credits have rolled. ‐ IGN Movies

9.2/10 92% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) [It] feels like Wes Anderson's most heartfelt film thus far. One that effortlessly straddles genres and works as both a nostalgic paean to a more innocent time and an examination of the very nature of storytelling itself. ‐ IGN Movies
