Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 62% Mary Queen of Scots (2018) [The film] inevitably does a disservice to its subjects -- Mary and Elizabeth were real women, not historical superheroes.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Jan 16, 2019
4/5 97% Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) [Makes] a strong case that animation is the natural medium for the comic book movie.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Dec 13, 2018
2/5 26% Mortal Engines (2018) [Philip] Reeves's book is a dense one when it comes to worldbuilding, and Mortal Engines does little to streamline or simplify it for the big screen. ‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Dec 5, 2018
3/5 73% Assassination Nation (2018) Every point the film wants to make has to be roared via lengthy speeches and declarations made straight down the lens. Any deeper meaning becomes lost. When the fires finally subside, there's not that much to be found in the ashes.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Dec 3, 2018
3/5 34% The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018) The Nutcracker doesn't exist in our memories as a story, but as a feeling.... And despite its strict adherence to convention, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is successful in capturing that spirit.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 2, 2018
53% An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn (2018) The awkwardness extends even into the production design... there's a magazine called Horse Fun... this film is just a complete act of world building. ‐ Kermode & Mayo's Film Review

97% The Hate U Give (2018) This is a film that speaks so directly and so intelligently to teens and I think that is a thing to treasure.‐ Kermode & Mayo's Film Review

62% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) What's arrived at the other side of this troubled production history is a work that's all spirit, no soul.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Oct 23, 2018
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
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2018
23% The Happytime Murders (2018) It's like aliens took over the bodies of all these talented people and wreaked havoc.‐ That Darn Movie Show
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2018
48% 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

69% 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)
Posted May 30, 2018
3/5 81% Early Man (2018) There's no single shot, movement, joke, or line of dialogue that seems wasted.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Jan 16, 2018
4/5 75% Manifesto (2017) What Manifesto does achieve, seemingly, is to crash together the planes of art and life.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 22, 2017
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)
Posted Sep 6, 2017
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)
Posted Aug 23, 2017
85% 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)
Posted Aug 16, 2017
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)
Posted Aug 2, 2017
87% 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)
Posted Jun 21, 2017
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)
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)
Posted Apr 5, 2017
3/5 48% 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)
Posted Mar 28, 2017
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)
Posted Mar 2, 2017
3/5 43% 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)
Posted Feb 22, 2017
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)
Posted Feb 8, 2017
3/5 17% 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)
Posted Dec 19, 2016
2/5 60% 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)
Posted Nov 21, 2016
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)
Posted Jul 11, 2016
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)
Posted Apr 21, 2016
3/5 95% Eye In The Sky (2016) A basic conundrum; yet it's smart, tense, and surprisingly pointed.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 76% 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
Posted Oct 8, 2015
3/5 26% Vacation (2015) A solidly funny summer comedy.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2015
2/5 45% 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
