Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 93% The Eagle Huntress (2016) It would take a cold heart not to feel some uplift from Aisholpan's game-changing triumph against the odds. ‐ The List
Posted Dec 12, 2016
3/5 95% The Edge of Seventeen (2016) The Edge of Seventeen may not revolutionise the sub-genre, but it's more articulate than most and harks back visually and thematically to the seriousness of John Hughes's The Breakfast Club, still the mother lode of disturbed teen movies. ‐ The List
Posted Nov 28, 2016
3/5 92% Eat That Question: Frank Zappa in His Own Words (2016) Zappa and his music may rarely have been fashionable, but this documentary provides a valuable and permanent record of the man himself; his musical canon can be enjoyed elsewhere. ‐ The List
Posted Nov 28, 2016
4/5 85% Sully (2016) Sullenberger's heroics made for a great news story, now, in the capable hands of director and star, they are the foundations for a riveting, cinematic drama. ‐ The List
Posted Nov 28, 2016
5/5 97% Your Name (Kimi No Na Wa.) (2016) Your Name offers audiences intellect, wonder and tears in equal measure. ‐ The List
Posted Nov 14, 2016
4/5 82% Indignation (2016) The refinement of Schamus's storytelling is up to the task of evoking the novel's honest, yet complex notions, making this the best Roth adaptation in decades. ‐ The List
Posted Nov 14, 2016
4/5 93% Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World (2016) 'Do you think the internet can dream of itself?' is the kind of gnarly enquiry Herzog puts to his experts, and their detailed answers are recorded with friendly gravitas. ‐ The List
Posted Oct 24, 2016
3/5 87% Phantom Boy (2016) While not for everyone, this old-fashioned adventure with a fresh twist may gain a cult following of those interested in how two French directors challenge the cookie-cutter narrative of most animations. ‐ The List
Posted Oct 17, 2016
2/5 63% Storks (2016) Small children might just find the film's energy enough to please, but the plot-holes stop Storks from taking flight. ‐ The List
Posted Oct 10, 2016
3/5 93% My Scientology Movie (2017) Theroux has created an amusing documentary, but one which rarely lands a meaningful punch on its easily demonised subject. ‐ The List
Posted Oct 3, 2016
3/5 47% Free State of Jones (2016) Ross manages the similarly rustic set-pieces with considerable visceral style, helped by McConaughey's haunted, intense presence. ‐ The List
Posted Sep 26, 2016
4/5 83% Sausage Party (2016) Sausage Party is rude, funny and unexpectedly profound in places, with the juvenile humour leavened by some thoughtful commentary on modern life. ‐ The List
Posted Aug 30, 2016
2/5 77% Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping fails to generate any genuine laughs. ‐ The List
Posted Aug 22, 2016
3/5 59% Bad Moms (2016) Bad Moms is actually pretty good when it comes to raising a smile to two. ‐ The List
Posted Aug 22, 2016
1/5 11% Nine Lives (2016) Nine Lives is a real cat-astrophe for all concerned. ‐ The List
Posted Aug 15, 2016
3/5 15% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) Never attempting to scale the more ambitious heights of a Pixar, Collision Course is a brisk, innocuous entry in a series that places silliness and colour before narrative drive, character or originality. ‐ The List
Posted Jul 11, 2016
4/5 76% Keanu (2016) If some of the jokes drag a little (the jibes at Clarence's George Michael fixation go on way too long), it's hard to complain when there are so many funny flights of fancy. ‐ The List
Posted Jul 11, 2016
4/5 97% Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) Neill and Dennison's chemistry ensures this unusual survival story is so knee-deep in charm that even moments of gloopy pathos feel thoroughly earned. ‐ The List
Posted Jun 27, 2016
4/5 No Score Yet Whisky Galore (2016) As with Bill Forsyth's best work, the film's bonhomie might just have universal appeal; such gentle humour may be lost on some, but Whisky Galore! offers a true taste of Scotland that's well worth acquiring. ‐ The List
Posted Jun 27, 2016
3/5 77% Elvis & Nixon (2016) As an extended sketch about the meeting of two remarkable figures, Elvis & Nixon manages to capture why the public retain such curiosity for these influential, eccentric men. ‐ The List
Posted Jun 20, 2016
2/5 83% Tommy's Honour (2017) Changing golfing traditions may be an unexpectedly hot topic in 2016, but Tommy's Honour offers misty-eyed melodrama rather than any real insight into sporting history. ‐ The List
Posted Jun 16, 2016
3/5 16% Gods Of Egypt (2016) Although likely to be remembered as a misfire, there's lots of entertainment to be derived from the oddball mixture of lofty ambition and barrel-scraping comedy. ‐ The List
Posted Jun 13, 2016
3/5 22% The Boss (2016) It's a proficient but forgettable comedy well-suited to the raucous nature of its star. ‐ The List
Posted Jun 6, 2016
3/5 17% Top Cat Begins (Don Gato, el inicio de la pandilla) (2015) Parents will at least recognise their old favourites in Top Cat Begins - with it replicating the kind of silly, simple knockabout routines that should be right up the alley of the cat's original fans. ‐ The List
Posted May 23, 2016
2/5 40% The Sweeney - Paris (Antigang) (2015) Viewers will be mystified by the existence of this copy of a copy of a British TV show that passed its sell-by date more than three decades ago. ‐ The List
Posted Apr 11, 2016
5/5 84% Victoria (2015) The result is an electrifying slice of cinema that is likely to be frequently imitated, but rarely improved upon. ‐ The List
Posted Mar 29, 2016
2/5 9% Norm of the North (2016) Norm of the North doesn't even make the grade in terms of animation, which is shoddy throughout. ‐ The List
Posted Mar 15, 2016
2/5 27% The Boy (2016) A heavy reliance on dream sequences for jump scares reveals that the storyline has nowhere to go, and the climactic twists are underwhelming. ‐ The List
Posted Mar 14, 2016
2/5 7% Fifty Shades of Black (2016) By setting his sights on the film adaptation of EL James' bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey, Wayans finally finds a target that offers him a valid excuse for his trademark crudeness. ‐ The List
Posted Mar 7, 2016
1/5 12% The Choice (2016) For audiences, the only important choice is to find something better to do than watch this anemic film. ‐ The List
Posted Feb 29, 2016
2/5 52% Demolition (2016) The cutesy ending suggests that the film's heart is at least in the right place, but the tiresome histrionics and uniformly overwrought performances end up doing nothing but taking a wrecking ball to the considerable reputations of all concerned. ‐ The List
Posted Feb 23, 2016
3/5 38% Secret in Their Eyes (2015) Unfamiliar with the superior original should ... find this a decently-made, rather moody thriller. ‐ The List
Posted Feb 22, 2016
3/5 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) A frothy, silly concoction that curdles into a sagging soufflé long before its time is up. ‐ The List
Posted Feb 16, 2016
1/5 16% Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip (2015) A sugar-sweet, nutty kind of chip-muck, but cinematic excrement all the same. ‐ The List
Posted Feb 8, 2016
1/5 18% Jem and the Holograms (2015) Chu was responsible for the shambles that was G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and proves that was no fluke through his uncertain handling of the conflicting material. ‐ The List
Posted Feb 8, 2016
2/5 9% Point Break (2015) Shorn of political subtexts and vacuous in terms of its characterisation, Core's Point Break is in free-fall from start to finish, leaving the stunts looking like nothing more than pumped-up adverts for energy drinks. ‐ The List
Posted Feb 1, 2016
3/5 45% The 33 (2015) Despite dramatic physical effects during the initial structural collapse, The 33 lacks the claustrophobia expected, playing out like a 70s disaster movie minus the narrative tension. ‐ The List
Posted Jan 25, 2016
2/5 33% Dragon Blade (Tian jiang xiong shi) (2015) Cusack does a good impression of an estate agent having a midlife crisis, while Brody adds to his gallery of eye-rollingly awful performances by going full Tony Montana. ‐ The List
Posted Jan 11, 2016
4/5 87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) As simple and well-meaning as Charlie himself, it's an old-fashioned delight. ‐ The List
Posted Dec 21, 2015
4/5 41% Shelter (2015) Shelter feels like an act of penance for all involved, and Connelly's powerful performance perfectly captures the anguish of a woman rendered all but invisible by poverty. ‐ The List
Posted Dec 14, 2015
3/5 66% The Night Before (2015) While never a classic in the manner of the Christmas movies it references, The Night Before cheerfully rehashes Superbad's freewheeling bonhomie to provide both crude silliness and predictable bromance in holiday-season-sized portions. ‐ The List
Posted Dec 1, 2015
4/5 89% What Our Fathers Did: A Nazi Legacy (2015) A hard, unsparing watch, but rewarding in the way it pushes each man to find common ground in the darkest corner of history. ‐ The List
Posted Nov 17, 2015
3/5 55% Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015) Hotel Transylvania 2 lives up to its meagre promise of simple, silly jokes and equally groan-worthy life-lessons. ‐ The List
Posted Oct 12, 2015
3/5 17% Ghosthunters: On Icy Trails (Gespensterjäger) (2015) Ghosthunters effectively nails down what an audience of 8 to 12-year-olds might enjoy: silly scares, simple humour and a familiar story, decently enough told. ‐ The List
Posted Sep 28, 2015
4/5 71% Pasolini (2014) Energised by a magnetic performance by Dafoe, Ferrara's film is no normal biopic, benefiting considerably from being as unconventional and intellectually rigorous as the man it portrays. ‐ The List
Posted Sep 7, 2015
2/5 51% Miss Julie (2014) Miss Julie feels stubbornly theatrical, rather than cinematic; Ullmann's dispassionate camera conveys little urgency or momentum, and her use of cutaways to highlight details like photographs and knives is painfully heavy-handed. ‐ The List
Posted Aug 31, 2015
3/5 85% The Wolfpack (2015) The Wolfpack ultimately feels like less than the sum of its, admittedly fascinating, parts. ‐ The List
Posted Aug 17, 2015
1/5 16% Strange Magic (2015) A mess of broad comedy, soppy romance and slapdash songs unlikely to win over the hearts or minds of either sex. ‐ The List
Posted Aug 17, 2015
2/5 9% The Cobbler (2015) Sandler's predictably simplistic comic targets mesh awkwardly with his director's own sense of moral complication. ‐ The List
Posted Jul 27, 2015
2/5 34% Knock Knock (2015) While it's amusing to see the indignities that Reeves suffers, particularly in a mock game-show scenario, Knock, Knock offers little that's new in its dissection of male vanity / virility. ‐ The List
