Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 31% The Jungle Bunch (Les as de la jungle) (2017) There's an odd disconnect between a complex, sometimes dark and occasionally violent plot, and the younger kids that the visual cuteness of its characters suggests it's aimed at.‐ Radio Times

2/5 0% Stratton (2017) Truth be told, this is the sort of film that, 30 years ago, would have gone speedily to VHS, and which should quickly suffer the equivalent fate today.‐ Radio Times

3/5 44% Everything, Everything (2017) Corny but efficient, and perfectly fine if you're tweenage or early teen, or just seeking a good sob.‐ Radio Times

2/5 10% The Emoji Movie (2017) Sir Patrick Stewart, stalwart thespian and former captain of the Starship Enterprise, voices a poop emoji. Which sort of says it all, really.‐ Radio Times

2/5 18% Wish Upon (2017) Pitched at horror fans who like to be mildly unsettled rather than grossed out, Wish Upon is decently made, but essentially it's a wet-afternoon watch.‐ Radio Times

4/5 89% Hounds of Love (2017) You feel a little grubby just for watching it, let alone liking it. This is seriously good film-making, though - just not for the faint-hearted nor weak-stomached.‐ Radio Times

3/5 53% 47 Meters Down (2017) Pleasingly less prurient and more female-empowered than many "women in peril" creature features.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2017
2/5 46% Spaceship (2016) A real minority watch that's best filed under 'decidedly different, but definitely difficult'.‐ Radio Times

3/5 50% The Promise (2017) Should appeal to lovers of period romance with a bit of stamina.‐ Radio Times

3/5 53% City of Tiny Lights (2016) For all its faults, City of Tiny Lights is a strong and stylish bit of Brit-noir with an impressive leading man in Ahmed. Definitely worth investigating.‐ Radio Times

3/5 38% Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) Fast-paced, colourful and fashionably girl-powered fun that, while treading no new territory, is perfect entertainment for younger kids.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2017
2/5 19% The Time of Their Lives (2017) Neither great nor grim but somewhere in between, this is a film for nostalgic older audiences with fond memories of Dynasty, Shirley Valentine and Camelot.‐ Radio Times

3/5 57% Trespass Against Us (2017) The story has pace and vigour, the performances are good and this is Fassbender as you've never seen him before.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
2/5 8% Shut In (2016) It's more likely to have the viewer giggling in disbelief than gasping with shock.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
3/5 80% Patriots Day (2017) This is old-fashioned, no-frills action film-making, the sort of efficient macho-minded entertainment that Berg is good at.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
4/5 94% I Am Not a Serial Killer (2016) Originality is hard to come by, especially in horror films, but there's a good dose of it in this stylish and beguiling little chiller based on the first book in Dan Wells's YA book series.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2016
3/5 29% Molly Moon and the Incredible Book of Hypnotism (2015) It's corny, but it also represents an ideal fantasy fulfilment for preteen girls.‐ Radio Times

3/5 91% Eat That Question: Frank Zappa in His Own Words (2016) Even those who are too young to remember Zappa's work may be drawn in by his iconic rebel status.‐ Radio Times

3/5 98% Your Name. (Kimi No Na Wa.) (2017) Although you need to keep your wits about you here, Your Name is a sharply animated, well-told fantastical tale for tweenagers.‐ Radio Times

1/5 75% We Are the Flesh (Tenemos la carne) (2017) Fans of Alexander Jodorowsky may fancy taking this trip with director Emiliano Rocha Minter; others should avoid at all costs.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2016
3/5 19% Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016) Kind of fun, though the material isn't always up to its calibre of cast.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2016
4/5 74% Trolls (2016) Threaded with a Cinderella subplot and featuring a poppy mix of musical covers and original songs, Trolls is quality confection for little ones.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2016
2/5 67% The Neighbor (2016) It's decently acted and decently made. At the same time, though, there's nothing particularly exceptional going on here.‐ Radio Times

3/5 88% Two Women (Mesyats v derevne) (2014) The acting, especially of leading lady Astrakhantseva, overcomes the language barrier, and makes this an adaptation worth experiencing by more adventurous viewers.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2016
4/5 66% Anthropoid (2016) A sweatily gripping thriller with a rousing finale.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2016
3/5 81% Equity (2016) It's no life-changer, but still offers decent entertainment.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2016
4/5 67% Brotherhood (2016) While the first film was attention-grabbing in its portrayal of gang life, Brotherhood is a more accomplished piece of true Brit film-making.‐ Radio Times

3/5 10% Cell (2016) Slickly made and worth the watch.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2016
3/5 70% Asterix and Obelix: Mansion of the Gods (Astérix: Le domaine des dieux) (2014) Despite some languid stretches, it's genial knockabout stuff for slightly older kids that, like Caesar, comes, sees and kind of conquers.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2016
4/5 87% Pete's Dragon (2016) By turns funny, sad, scary and exciting, this is terrific family entertainment, though children who are easily upset may be disturbed by some of the intense action scenes.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Aug 14, 2016
4/5 89% Born To Be Blue (2016) A brilliant, often brutal biopic that's cool for cats of any persuasion, whether jazz fans or otherwise.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2016
3/5 100% The Hard Stop (2015) It's worth the watch, though unlikely to sway the entrenched opinions as to whether what the police did that day was justified or not.‐ Radio Times

3/5 77% Keanu (2016) As an adult action-comedy spoof, Keanu does intermittently cut it. And the kitten is really, really cute.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2016
2/5 15% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) The Ice Age films have always been one of the better, more consistent family franchises. But this is a sequel too far.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2016
3/5 42% The Girl King (2015) Superior and hugely watchable costume drama.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2016
2/5 43% Miracles from Heaven (2016) Though unquestionably a film of faith, Miracles from Heaven doesn't ram its religiosity down your throat quite as much as many others of its kind do. Not until a horribly over-fluffy finale, that is.‐ Radio Times

4/5 95% Sing Street (2016) Cornily heart-warming, it's an absolute delight and a welcome relief from the shock and bore of the typical multiplex blockbuster.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted May 19, 2016
2/5 17% Ratchet & Clank (2016) Snappy dialogue and fast pacing keep things lively, but essentially, this is a video game you can't play, and a film that all but rabid Ratchet & Clank fans will find tough to watch.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2016
3/5 10% Despite The Falling Snow (2017) It's a taut and talky film, nicely played by all concerned. But given the big themes, it is a rather small affair with few cinematic qualities.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2016
3/5 87% The Club (El Club) (2016) A worthwhile if sometimes tough watch.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2016
2/5 52% Risen (2016) Potentially interesting "CSI: Judea" stuff is speedily ditched in favour of Fiennes's conversion to Christianity and some routine miracles.‐ Radio Times

2/5 9% Norm of the North (2016) It's all fine without being too exciting.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2016
3/5 48% Capture the Flag (2016) It may lack the finesse and charm of animation from Pixar, Disney or DreamWorks, but it's a decent yarn for younger kids who want something to watch on a rainy day or school holiday.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2016
2/5 33% Dragon Blade (Tian jiang xiong shi) (2015) Chan brings martial artistry to the fight, Cusack his siege skills, and the the film overall is a mishmash of languages, styles and tones.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Jan 15, 2016
2/5 0% Sparks and Embers (2015) A mildly diverting confection for a rainy day, and something that may find a more suitable home on the small screen.‐ Radio Times

4/5 87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) The kids may need some persuading. But chances are they'll love this too ...‐ Radio Times

3/5 100% Mr Calzaghe (2015) Slickly made though thoroughly non-critical, Mr Calzaghe should appeal to fans of the Italian Dragon even if it is a bit light on its feet.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2015
2/5 46% Closer To The Moon (2015) The story is so quintessentially Romanian, it had better been made in Romanian, with Romanian actors.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Nov 12, 2015
2/5 26% The Runner (2015) Although first-time writer/director Austin Stark has his heart in the right place and Cage eschews his trademark zaniness, it's only watchable rather than gripping.‐ Radio Times
