Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 29% Burnt (2015) Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller dish up a thin stew of streaky ham and overcooked corn in this horribly predictable drama about a fiery-tempered chef's attempts to earn a third Michelin star.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

4/5 90% Mississippi Grind (2015) Mendelsohn is so watchable as a big-hearted but self-destructive loser, you can't take your eyes off the screen.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

64% Spectre (2015) Forget the campiness of the past, 007 is the suited-and-booted menace originally envisioned by creator Ian Fleming.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

2/5 27% Pan (2015) While the special effects are as good as anything you'll see in a cinema this year, some of the performances are end-of-the-pier awful and the storyline's a crib sheet of at least half a dozen much better fantasy flicks.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

4/5 70% Miss You Already (2015) Amid the humour, there's plenty of heart with the relationship between the two leads feeling totally real and the depiction of Milly's illness sensitively handled.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

4/5 46% A Walk In The Woods (2015) Like the book upon which it's based, Robert Redford's latest is a film of small but continual pleasures - an amiable amble that's almost impossible to dislike.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

2/5 73% Everest (2015) Aside from appearances, there's not much here to engage with.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

4/5 14% Almost Married (2015) The gags are as coarse as the subject matter, but generally very, very funny, and there's an extremely neat twist.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

4/5 89% Cartel Land (2015) Jaw-droppingly intense ...‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

2/5 43% American Ultra (2015) You can almost hear the gears crunching as this bizarre movie misstep careers from spy thriller to stoner comedy and back again.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

3/5 87% Straight Outta Compton (2015) For fans only.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2015
2/5 10% Good People (2014) This involving set-up soon gives way to tired gangster clichés, culminating in a crude and over-the- top bloodbath.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

1/5 26% Vacation (2015) All in all, it's as funny as a camping trip to Chernobyl with Charles Manson as your tent buddy.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2015
4/5 66% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) An entertaining and refreshingly old-fashioned adaptation of the espionage drama that ran from 1964 to '68 and made stars of Robert Vaughn and David McCallum.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

2/5 9% Fantastic Four (2015) An object lesson in how not to create a superhero origin story.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2015
4/5 92% The Gift (2015) The film's well-worn concept is re-energised with some ingenious plot swerves and a last-act shock right up there with Gone Girl.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2015
88% The Simpsons Movie (2007) There's a great half-hour show rattling around in here somewhere, but the rest is padding at its very dullest.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2015
3/5 36% Beyond The Reach (2015) A lean, mean action thriller let down only by a deeply predictable ending.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2015
3/5 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) The last M:I film, 2011's Ghost Protocol, remains the series' high point because it was so consistently engaging. This time, we spend much too long in government back rooms discussing politics.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

3/5 60% Southpaw (2015) You may find yourself pummelled into exhaustion by this rote rise-and-fall melodrama.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

4/5 82% Ant-Man (2015) While boasting all the dazzling special effects we've come to expect from the Iron Man, Captain America and Thor series, this is Marvel in modest form - and small turns out to be beautiful.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

4/5 89% Big Hero 6 (2014) It's as if Disney has taken some very traditional ingredients and blended them to come up with a new flavour entirely.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

4/5 74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) Murder, mayhem and madness are unleashed in this absurdly enjoyable spy caper that David Niven or perhaps Patrick Macnee might have made in the 1960s.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

3/5 45% Ted 2 (2015) Given the brilliance of its forebear, you can't help wishing for something better. By cutting out a good 20 minutes, it would have been twice as funny.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

4/5 31% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) If 2010's Kick-Ass was a one-two sucker punch of glorious goofiness, the follow-up is a more thoughtful superhero send-up.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

3/5 60% Futatsume no mado (Still the Water) (2014) It's a film that takes an awfully long time to say not very much but, boy, is it beautifully shot.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

4/5 64% Magic Mike XXL (2015) The story never veers far from the standard road trip template but, like they say, it's not what you've got, it's what you do with it.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

4/5 56% Minions (2015) Bright, breezy and brought to life with some impressive 3D, make no mistake, Minions is going to be one of the biggest hits of the year.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

2/5 40% She's Funny That Way (2015) The shadow of Woody Allen looms large over this frothy ensemble comedy, but not in a good way.‐ Daily Record (UK)

5/5 94% Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (2015) It may be a documentary but Going Clear is as incredible as anything Hollywood could dream up.‐ Daily Record (UK)

2/5 29% Everly (2015) There are references to Leon, Kill Bill and Se7en, plus a whole lot of Japanese men in sharp suits -- leading to a distinct whiff of déjà Woo.‐ Daily Record (UK)

4/5 88% Mr. Holmes (2015) Despite dealing with weighty themes such as ageing, death and the gap between Holmes' public and private personas, there's plenty of delightful humour to enjoy.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

3/5 32% Entourage (2015) As a slice of slick male wish fulfilment, bow-wrapped with a G-string and served with an extra helping of hedonism, it's everything fans of the show could've hoped for.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

4/5 71% Jurassic World (2015) The finale is even more visually stunning and comes with a neat twist you probably won't see coming.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

4/5 93% Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films (2012) It's a hilarious, couldn't-make-it-up journey into one of film's strangest chapters.‐ Daily Record (UK)

5/5 94% Spy (2015) I confidently predict this will be the funniest film of 2015.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2015
3/5 50% Tomorrowland (2015) The upbeat message, of not letting go of dreams and facing a bright future with confidence, is hardly original for a kids' flick, but it's certainly unusual for a sci-fi movie.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted May 22, 2015
4/5 87% Lambert & Stamp (2015) The story of these two make-it-up-as-you-go-along chancers is as fascinating as it is unbelievable.‐ Daily Record (UK)
Read More | Posted May 15, 2015
4/5 66% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) The humour is razor-sharp and the spirit of goodwill that infused the first film is alive and well while Rebel Wilson, as the group's plump heroine, is as funny as ever.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

2/5 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) Noisy, explosive and visually spectacular but depressingly hollow.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted May 11, 2015
2/5 55% The Age of Adaline (2015) Ironically, this romantic drama about a woman who can't grow old creaks along like a centenarian with chronic arthritis.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted May 8, 2015
3/5 78% Big Game (2015) Loud, daft and explosive, it's a B-movie right down to its fingertips.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

3/5 63% Unfriended (2015) A gimmick is stretched beyond breaking point in an initially clever but ultimately exhausting horror film.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted May 1, 2015
3/5 85% Far From the Madding Crowd (2015) The fact that this film prompts not a sob but a shrug is a tragedy all of its own.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted May 1, 2015
4/5 20% Tea & Sangria (2014) It's a gentle and warm-hearted film, and its biggest strength is its pithy examination of how us Brits are regarded by our European cousins.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
