Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 75% Good Kill (2015) It's a surgical strike against US foreign adventurism and a devastating take-down of its "warheads-on-foreheads" policy, as well as a very moving a study of a soul in torment.‐ Daily Record (UK)

3/5 85% John Wick (2014) It's a lean, mean and extremely violent B-movie that's already being confirmed as the first part of a franchise in the making.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

3/5 80% Furious 7 (2015) If you gave a 15-year-old boy $250million and told him to go away and make a movie, the result would probably look like this.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

2/5 13% Seventh Son (2015) What's missing is any sense of excitement.‐ Daily Record (UK)

3/5 29% Get Hard (2015) [An] occasionally hilarious and constantly filthy comedy featuring more penis references than a PhD in human biology.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

3/5 83% Cinderella (2015) The story is as enchanting as ever, the handsome cast doesn't miss a beat, while the costumes and set design are wonders to behold. But the movie's sheer flawlessness turns out to be a flaw in itself.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

2/5 17% The Gunman (2015) The film's real fault is its 'hero', a glum, sour-faced sociopath who it's almost impossible to root for.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

3/5 29% Insurgent (2015) Much like the last film, the dialogue and the action suffer from a keen sense of lifelessness.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

4/5 86% A Brilliant Young Mind (2015) Take the story of a young maths prodigy, add three notable performances, subtract any of the by-the-numbers mawkishness you might expect, and the result is X+Y, a small gem of a Brit flick.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

2/5 61% Run All Night (2015) It's dull enough to make you yawn but too loud to let you fall asleep.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2015
3/5 57% White Bird in a Blizzard (2014) Shailene Woodley stars in a mystery thriller/coming-of-age drama that earns its third star from a kicker of a twist ending.‐ Daily Record (UK)

87% Still Alice (2015) Never once veering into heavy-handed sentimentality, it's a film to break your heart.‐ Daily Record (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2015
3/5 11% Unfinished Business (2015) Unfinished Business may be the best Judd Apatow comedy that Judd Apatow never made.‐ Daily Record (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2015
3/5 32% Chappie (2015) The dialogue is simplistic but the film is atmospheric and fitfully entertaining, thanks largely to the charms of Visser and Sharlto Copley, who plays Chappie via motion capture.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2015
2/5 56% Focus (2015) It all adds up to an entertaining first half hour or so before the plot begins in earnest and the fun factor starts to droop.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

3/5 49% Cake (2015) With Aniston on this form it's almost good enough to banish memories of The Bounty Hunter, Wanderlust and even Just Go With It.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2015
3/5 63% The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015) While not without its charms, Marigold 2 is a pretty naked cash-in.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2015
2/5 39% Two Night Stand (2014) The makers were aiming for a how-we-date-now rom-com. Instead, they've made a film that might have seemed hip 10 years back but now seems dated, cold and cynical.‐ Daily Record (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2015
4/5 95% Love Is Strange (2014) There's lots of charm, from the looks Ben and George give one another, to the easiness of their shared company.‐ Daily Record (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2015
5/5 97% It Follows (2015) A sense of dread envelopes every scene thanks to combination of Mitchell's slow, measured tracking shots and the stunning score from Disasterpeace.‐ Daily Record (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2015
3/5 24% Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) Taylor-Johnson has made a film that is both sexy and stylish.‐ Daily Record (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2015
4/5 99% Shaun the Sheep Movie (2015) It doesn't scale the same heights of the studio's Wallace and Gromit movies but is guaranteed to delight the children.‐ Daily Record (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 13, 2015
1/5 26% Jupiter Ascending (2015) The only things likely to ascend during the Wachowskis' latest sci-fi soap opera will be your eyes, which may actually swivel in exasperation up and over, allowing you to see your own brain.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2015
2/5 63% Son of a Gun (2015) Although the hectic genre-swapping action should keep you marginally entertained, you'll be able to guess precisely what's going to happen long before it actually does.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 30, 2015
2/5 90% Wild (2014) It's not a particularly interesting journey - although the scenery is terrific - and the movie's flow is constantly interrupted by some jarring flashbacks, with Laura Dern playing the hiker's mother.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2015
94% Whiplash (2014) Compelling, compulsive and excruciatingly funny, you can't take your eyes off the screen.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2015
3/5 72% American Sniper (2015) Eastwood is still making great films, with the 84-year-old's recent resumé including such historical treats as Changeling, Jersey Boys and Invictus. But, unfortunately, this isn't one of his finest moments.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2015
4/5 96% Argo (2012) Much like his earlier directorial efforts, Gone Baby Gone and The Town, Affleck delivers a blockbuster with brains that's populated by nicely rounded characters.‐ Daily Record (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2015
5/5 96% 12 Years a Slave (2013) 12 Years A Slave is a powerful, moving and intelligently unsentimental tale that is engrossing and memorable.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

4/5 91% Locke (2014) The spare scenario may not sound inspiring, but Locke's attempts to keep his life from unraveling during a series of telephone calls make for a suspenseful and impressive experience.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2015
3/5 79% The Theory of Everything (2014) It looks and feels like utter cornball but the sheer commitment of the stars makes the whole thing deeply watchable.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2015
3/5 89% The Drop (2014) The plot, setting and supposed twists are all mightily familiar but it's worth a punt due to Tom Hardy and the late James Gandolfini.‐ Daily Record (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2015
85% Under the Skin (2014) This is an intelligent and classy film, part sci-fi, part horror and part thriller that shows just how good an actress Johansson can be when given the chance.‐ Daily Record (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2015
3/5 90% The Imitation Game (2014) It's a well told but somewhat unexciting and placid little movie that, despite the star wattage, you'd expect to catch on a Sunday afternoon on BBC2.‐ Daily Record (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2015
4/5 92% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) Like most of Anderson's films -- and Gustave himself -- the film is rather pleased with itself, but its exuberant humour and pacy plot keep it accessible while Fiennes delivers his funniest role ever.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2015
2/5 91% Birdman (2014) A self-indulgent and generally tedious luvvie comedy where smug has been substituted for smart. It's a bit like those mediocre films pumped out by Woody Allen in the 90s.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2015
5/5 59% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) The third and final instalment in the all-conquering series has got everything -- an engrossing story, a near-overdose of thrills and spills, and a cast of uniquely memorable characters.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Dec 16, 2014
2/5 78% Electricity (2014) Sparks fail to fly in an original but meandering and uninvolving drama, starring Agyness Deyn as a young woman prone to increasingly dangerous epileptic fits.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2014
3/5 59% I Am Ali (2014) Any movie about one of sport's most intriguing and heroic characters is never going to be dull.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 28, 2014
2/5 34% Horrible Bosses 2 (2014) Calling it unfunny doesn't quite do it. It's as if the writers set out to make a movie to actively offend anyone with a sense of humour.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 28, 2014
5/5 98% Paddington (2015) Paddington isn't just the film of the year, it might actually be one of the finest family films ever made.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 28, 2014
1/5 24% Third Person (2014) What does it all mean? Not very much, I suspect, with the cast sombrely delivering lines about trust and frailty while starring broodily into the middle distance.‐ Daily Record (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2014
1/5 16% Nativity 3: Dude Where's My Donkey? (2014) It's more a case of dude, where are the laughs as the hit British comedy series returns for a third, unwelcome installment.‐ Daily Record (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2014
3/5 66% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) It might make economic sense for Lionsgate Pictures to carve the novel in two but it means this movie is all built-up with a distinct lack of excitement.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2014
5/5 97% Mr. Turner (2014) I confidently predict Timothy Spall will be lifting a Bafta, if not an Oscar, for his brilliant performance as 19th-century painter JMW Turner in this affecting biopic.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

95% Nightcrawler (2014) Jake Gyllenhaal delivers on the promise he showed nine years ago in Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2014
2/5 41% Horns (2014) The effect is less spine chilling and more eyebrow drooping.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2014
3/5 77% Fury (2014) [It looks] like a piece of unsubtle propaganda, no matter how much mud it's caked in.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2014
4/5 72% Palo Alto (2014) The story tends to meander but the kids' ups and downs are delicately observed and the performances, especially from Roberts, are never less than believable.‐ Daily Record (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2014
2/5 8% The Best Of Me (2014) Bad boy meets good girl, families get in the way and tragedy follows before the emotionally-contrived ending.‐ Daily Record (UK)
