T-Meter Title | Year
73% To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You (2020) As tends to be the problem with sequels, To All the Boys 2 doesn't have the freshness of its predecessor. It's still very sweet and cutesy, but one feels like it's merely treading old ground. - entertainment.ie EDIT

33% A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby (2019) More cheesy, nonsensical (albeit, easy-to-watch) rubbish than ever before in the A Christmas Prince franchise. Honestly, there's not much more to say about it. - entertainment.ie EDIT

3/5 71% Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) Fans of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will find much to enjoy. Though it has its flaws, you can't deny how much fun The Next Level is. - entertainment.ie EDIT

93% High Flying Bird (2019) A thought-provoking film that is niche in spite of its best efforts. The strong performances push the story along, and its tight 90 minute running length is commendable. However, the movie is unlikely to find a massive audience outside the US. - entertainment.ie EDIT

Read More | Posted Nov 28, 2019
1.5/5 52% Charlie's Angels (2019) More Sex and the City 2 than Mission: Impossible, for an action-comedy, Charlie's Angels isn't very funny and its action is quite subpar. - entertainment.ie EDIT

4/5 77% Frozen II (2019) Even better than the first Frozen, Frozen 2 is the best animated feature of the year and an impressive follow-up. - entertainment.ie EDIT

3.5/5 73% Shooting the Mafia (2019) An incredible look into one of the bloodiest epochs in Italy's recent history. Our subject is a cool, slightly mad lady and you have to appreciate her ballsiness. - entertainment.ie EDIT

43% Holiday in the Wild (2019) It's a nicey-nice movie and hollow but there's an audience for it somewhere - entertainment.ie EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 28, 2019
81% Let It Snow (2019) For what it's worth, thanks to a proficient director in Luke Snellin and a talented young cast, Let It Snow ends up being A-OK. - entertainment.ie EDIT

3.5/5 43% The Addams Family (2019) The Addams Family isn't perfect but it'll have you and your family laughing throughout. It's one of the better animations of the year, though 2019 hasn't offered much. - entertainment.ie EDIT

Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2019
37% In the Tall Grass (2019) While not as lame and lazy as a horror like The Silence, In the Tall Grass is standard-fare and little more than a cheap thrill. - entertainment.ie EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 15, 2019
44% Tall Girl (2019) Tall Girl is not a movie with depth, though it is more charming than you'd expect. It's just such a shame about that ending. - entertainment.ie EDIT

Read More | Posted Oct 15, 2019
2/5 26% Gemini Man (2019) Proves what a naturally charismatic and talented lead Will Smith makes; but as an action-thriller, it's unimpressive with some questionable CGI. - entertainment.ie EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 15, 2019
2.5/5 71% The King (2019) Most of The King works but lead Timothée Chalamet comes out as the weakest link. - entertainment.ie EDIT
