Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
67% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) A shallow attempt to make another Amblin classic, by a director who can't help but let his grisly horror pedigree creep back into frame.‐ That Darn Movie Show

85% A Simple Favor (2018) It's Paul Feig vs. the airport novel. And whatever arises out of that: sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's tense, sometimes it's a little trashy. ‐ That Darn Movie Show

26% The Nun (2018) Horror is one of the safest genres in terms of taking risks. That's why it always feels frustrating when movies like The Nun play it so, so safe. ‐ That Darn Movie Show

22% The Happytime Murders (2018) It's like aliens took over the bodies of all these talented people and wreaked havoc.‐ That Darn Movie Show

49% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Is there any future in the Jurassic Park franchise? They were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, that they didn't stop to think if they should. ‐ That Darn Movie Show

68% Ocean's 8 (2018) Ocean's 8 works as a piece of pure, Old Hollywood-style entertainment; taking the basic structure of the heist movie and allowing it to be a playground for star power. ‐ That Darn Movie Show

72% Christopher Robin (2018) Christopher Robin is something of an oddity -- a kid's movie that plays stronger to adults. But sometimes, it's a risk worth taking. ‐ That Darn Movie Show

5/5 89% Hereditary (2018) Toni Collette's work as Annie here is gut-wrenching in its own terms, as she's able to craft a horror that reaches beyond just what goes bump in the night, but that lies at the heart of a woman whose whole family seems to be crumbling before her eyes.‐ Independent (UK)

3/5 82% Early Man (2018) There's no single shot, movement, joke, or line of dialogue that seems wasted.‐ Independent (UK)

4/5 76% Manifesto (2017) What Manifesto does achieve, seemingly, is to crash together the planes of art and life.‐ Independent (UK)

4/5 85% It (2017) We understand these characters, we understand so painfully their fears. That's the kind of horror that nestles deep inside your brain. It's the kind that follows you home.‐ Independent (UK)

2/5 86% American Made (2017) The problem is, American Made's Barry Seal was a real person. And real people aren't celluloid gods.‐ Independent (UK)

84% Godzilla Resurgence (Shin Godzilla) (2016) What Shin Godzilla does offer is one major counter: Godzilla's real home is Japan, and anything else feels like a glitzy vacation.‐ Independent (UK)

4/5 78% Atomic Blonde (2017) Without a doubt one of the greatest action stars of today, Atomic Blonde offers a spectacular platform for Charlize Theron's skills.‐ Independent (UK)

86% Okja (2017) This is a film that deserves to stand proudly on its own as one of this year's cinematic gems, and another stellar entry into Bong Joon-Ho's unique catalogue of work.‐ Independent (UK)

5/5 66% Alien: Covenant (2017) Every second here is tinged with dark foreboding, with the relentless tension that marked the 1979 original. And, for good measure, there's plenty of shooting aliens in the face, too.‐ Independent (UK)
Read More | Posted May 10, 2017
2/5 46% The Discovery (2017) The Discovery is a film which poses far too many questions, but with no heart to search for the answers.‐ Independent (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2017
3/5 46% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) Power Rangers' saviour is its own knowingness, its own touch of self-reflective cynicism; though the key here is that it never launches itself into the full meta-attack we've come to expect in a post-Deadpool era.‐ Independent (UK)

2/5 75% Kong: Skull Island (2017) It's a film that, somehow, takes the fun out of watching a giant monkey slam-dunk a helicopter into the ground.‐ Independent (UK)

3/5 41% A Cure For Wellness (2017) This is a film that's entirely satisfied with making no sense at all. It's hard not to feel a little endeared by that kind of scrappy energy, especially when the real meat of this film lies in its atmosphere-building.‐ Independent (UK)

4/5 90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) The LEGO Batman Movie delivers a deliriously fun ride that likely to stand up surprisingly well amongst the rest of this year's superhero films.‐ Independent (UK)

3/5 18% Assassin's Creed (2016) Assassin's Creed has probably done the very best it can with the hand it's been dealt with and, really, this might be the best video game adaptation yet. Mind you, that's not saying a huge amount.‐ Independent (UK)

2/5 59% Allied (2016) There's an odd, stark sheen to it all; betraying neither nostalgic romanticism or muted weight, making its lead actors look like mannequins posed in the actions of wartime romance.‐ Independent (UK)

4/5 74% Ghostbusters (2016) The new film's just as unabashedly goofy as its predecessor, its paranormal aspects still possessing that kind of giddy, carnival ride spookiness.‐ Independent (UK)

4/5 91% Captain America: Civil War (2016) If Captain America: Civil War is the true herald of Marvel's Phrase Three and its carefully planned future; maybe it doesn't actually feel so bad that we'll be getting these movies every year until the Earth collapses in on itself.‐ Independent (UK)

3/5 95% Eye In The Sky (2016) A basic conundrum; yet it's smart, tense, and surprisingly pointed.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Apr 15, 2016
3/5 77% Goosebumps (2015) Goosebumps is nostalgia at its most infectious.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2016
2/5 13% Ride Along 2 (2016) As deprived of humour as it may be, Ride Along 2 is also pleasantly, stubbornly watchable.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 63% Sleeping with Other People (2015) Perhaps Headland is afraid of her films being too unlikable for audiences, or this an attempt to legitimise herself within the mainstream. Because, ultimately, why sacrifice all this smart, perceptive modernity for a finale hewn of Hollywood cliché?‐ The List

2/5 31% Daddy's Home (2015) An irresistible pairing in a hollow display case of a movie.‐ Little White Lies

2/5 27% Pan (2015) Dear lord, it's like Rooney Mara was crushed by a United Colours of Benetton ad.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 26% Vacation (2015) A solidly funny summer comedy.‐ The List

2/5 44% True Story (2015) True Story's undoing is that it lacks the very thing Finkel himself so desperately prized: the perfect angle.‐ The List

1/5 11% Search Party (2016) Can we please just place a lifetime ban on 'White people vs Mexico' comedies, already?‐ The List

3/5 100% Hotori no Sakuko (2015) Though it may deliver scant resolution, Au revoir l'été is at least a stroll by the waters worth taking.‐ The List

52% A Second Chance (En chance til) (2015) With style and content failing to gel, A Second Chance may just go to prove that Bier and Jensen aren't the perfect match they'd have us believe.‐ Little White Lies
Posted Mar 24, 2015
2/5 48% Cake (2015) A brilliant Jennifer Aniston lead performance isn't enough to save this doughy, maudlin piece of misery porn.‐ Little White Lies
