Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 29% Everly (2015) Everly has guts and sparkle but, without sense, it all adds up to nothing but bluster. ‐ The List
Posted Jun 22, 2015
3/5 91% Love & Mercy (2015) It's a sympathetic portrait of a tortured genius battling introversion, medication and hangers-on. ‐ The List
Posted Jun 19, 2015
1/5 29% The Longest Ride (2015) Blandly photographed and unexceptionally acted, The Longest Ride is a typically generic love story from the Sparks production line. ‐ The List
Posted Jun 15, 2015
3/5 76% The Connection (2015) There's a lot for genre fans to like, from Dujardin's winning central performance to an eclectic soundtrack that sets a montage of street crime to Al Wilson's classic song 'The Snake'. ‐ The List
Posted May 25, 2015
2/5 No Score Yet Arrambam (2013) The tonal shifts of a Bollywood blockbuster sit uneasily in Arrambam. ‐ The List
Posted May 12, 2015
3/5 77% Big Game (2015) A minor pleasure for undemanding B movie fans. ‐ The List
Posted May 4, 2015
3/5 86% Top Five (2014) Rock's scattershot film may not be for the ages, but at least developing a personal angle has allowed him to get his groove back. ‐ The List
Posted May 4, 2015
2/5 14% Hot Tub Time Machine 2 (2015) Fans of the first film will note the problematic lack of balance; without Cusack's notably sour contribution, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 sinks in a sea of its own bodily fluids. ‐ The List
Posted Apr 6, 2015
3/5 63% The Water Diviner (2015) A sombre, intelligent tale of readjustment and personal healing. ‐ The List
Posted Mar 30, 2015
3/5 13% Seventh Son (2015) Enjoyable hokum. ‐ The List
Posted Mar 23, 2015
3/5 60% The Signal (2014) The Signal might seem like just another entry for the ongoing pile of lo-fi, stargazing fare, but a few unexpected virtues help it resonate more than most. ‐ The List
Posted Mar 23, 2015
2/5 61% Robot Overlords (2015) Robot Overlords feels like yet another busted franchise pilot in search of an audience. It's too brash for families, too babyish and obvious for teens. ‐ The List
Posted Mar 23, 2015
2/5 No Score Yet Peppa Pig: The Golden Boots (2015) Likely to be received with delight by the kids and stoic grimness by restless adults. ‐ The List
Posted Mar 19, 2015
2/5 47% Home (2015) Home's infantilism is a regressive step for DreamWorks, offering a sour rather than sweet experience for audiences. ‐ The List
Posted Mar 16, 2015
3/5 78% Kill the Messenger (2014) Part political exposé, part character study, Kill the Messenger feels too much like a polemic, and too little like a human drama, failing to entertain as well as it informs. ‐ The List
Posted Mar 2, 2015
2/5 52% Stonehearst Asylum (2014) While its intentions were probably high-minded, the only reaction Stonehearst Asylum is likely to induce is hoots of derisive laughter. ‐ The List
Posted Feb 24, 2015
4/5 77% Rosewater (2014) A small-scale but heartfelt drama that delivers a simple and effective message about the importance of political freedom. ‐ The List
Posted Feb 20, 2015
2/5 29% The Wedding Ringer (2015) It's a film swamped with the worst kind of glitzy Hollywood distraction, while the problem at the centre of the story - Doug's lack of genuine friends - is a subject that The Wedding Ringer's mirthless razzamatazz completely fails to address. ‐ The List
Posted Feb 16, 2015
2/5 51% The Interview (2014) The humour is mostly crotch-level and initial bonhomie gives way to tiresome violence in a largely joke-free finale. ‐ The List
Posted Feb 2, 2015
4/5 46% The Gambler (2014) The Gambler is a remake that effectively updates a subtle yet nihilistic story; Wyatt and Monahan stick to their mean-spirited guns and offer up a sour view of addiction and the havoc it wreaks. ‐ The List
Posted Jan 19, 2015
3/5 72% American Sniper (2015) Eastwood's infectious sympathy for Kyle and ease with the actors and action ultimately triumphs over the film's lack of engagement with either marital or wider political issues. ‐ The List
Posted Jan 15, 2015
3/5 29% Dumb and Dumber To (2014) Recaptures the magic intermittently. ‐ The List
Posted Dec 15, 2014
3/5 72% Penguins Of Madagascar (2014) Penguins of Madagascar passes the time pleasantly without expanding the franchise's universe in a particularly imaginative or challenging way. ‐ The List
Posted Dec 2, 2014
2/5 10% No Good Deed (2014) There's nothing to distinguish TV director Sam Miller's pedestrian effort from scores of straight-to-download thrillers. ‐ The List
Posted Nov 17, 2014
4/5 93% Diplomacy (2014) Diplomacy is a tiny film that hits a big target. ‐ The List
Posted Nov 10, 2014
2/5 34% The November Man (2014) Such lameness is all the more disappointing considering how much more tightly Donaldson once pulled together a similar package in the 1987 Kevin Costner spy drama No Way Out. ‐ The List
Posted Nov 3, 2014
3/5 44% Night Train To Lisbon (2013) While deeply unfashionable, Night Train to Lisbon's old-school, historically aware melodrama seduces during some compelling stretches, and reasserts August as a filmmaker of real ability. ‐ The List
Posted Oct 21, 2014
2/5 67% Dolphin Tale 2 (2014) Dolphin Tale 2 plays out in a fairly tedious way; there's a brief period in a child's development when they will actively seek new and serious drama, yet might still accept fare as bland as this. ‐ The List
Posted Sep 29, 2014
4/5 53% I Origins (2014) It's the work of intelligent filmmakers with a welcome willingness to shoot for the big questions of life, the universe and everything. ‐ The List
Posted Sep 23, 2014
2/5 44% Wish I Was Here (2014) Despite laudably aiming for originality much of Braff's second film plays out as self-pitying Hollywood schmaltz. ‐ The List
Posted Sep 15, 2014
2/5 35% The Giver (2014) By adding spurious action and making the characters older than in the novel, the makers of The Giver sell-out the story; a project which prizes individuality shouldn't so slavishly adhere to the Divergent-school of teenage drama. ‐ The List
Posted Sep 15, 2014
4/5 75% The Boxtrolls (2014) The Boxtrolls is impressively nasty fare for gothic fantasists of all ages. ‐ The List
Posted Sep 8, 2014
2/5 17% Sex Tape (2014) Sex Tape is brisk but annoyingly light on laughs, a slight fumbling of an idea that deserved a more rigorous exploration. ‐ The List
Posted Sep 1, 2014
2/5 63% Million Dollar Arm (2014) Hamm's charm works well playing a debonair scoundrel on television but in this bland, family friendly offering, it's a resource that's quickly drained. ‐ The List
Posted Aug 26, 2014
4/5 84% Alleluia (2015) Alleluia is an unpleasantly perverse psychodrama that certainly delivers on the nastiness of the premise; Dueñas and Lucas both give intense performances, and the result is enough to make both sexes think twice about online romance. ‐ The List
Posted Aug 20, 2014
2/5 44% Planes: Fire And Rescue (2014) As with the first film, children will be drawn to the bright colours and simple morals, which makes some of the sexual and racial stereotyping on the sidelines rather regrettable. ‐ The List
Posted Aug 5, 2014
2/5 49% Earth to Echo (2014) Audiences who like to imagine that they could make a better film themselves may well, in this instance, be correct. ‐ The List
Posted Jul 30, 2014
3/5 56% The Purge: Anarchy (2014) The Purge: Anarchy is a welcome expansion of the first film's concept, and shrewdly fills a void as one of the few adult-orientated action films in the family-friendly summer schedule. ‐ The List
Posted Jul 22, 2014
2/5 10% The Nut Job (2014) The Nut Job feels like an archly contrived excuse to justify the groaning pun of the title. ‐ The List
Posted Jul 8, 2014
4/5 98% Boyhood (2014) An authentically awkward, ordinary life, scrupulously observed. ‐ The List
Posted Jul 8, 2014
3/5 93% Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case (2014) While little more than an update on an ongoing dispute, The Fake Case is a welcome chance to catch up with the quirky artist's heroic struggle for freedom. ‐ The List
Posted Jun 23, 2014
4/5 87% Joe (2014) Joe may be too bleak and unsparing for some tastes, but it's an adult, accomplished drama that elevates an ordinary story to near-operatic heights. ‐ The List
Posted Jun 19, 2014
2/5 95% Snowpiercer (2014) Snowpiercer is leaden and confused, an all-star disaster of a movie, of interest only to connoisseurs of expensively botched sci-fi money-pits. ‐ The List
Posted Jun 19, 2014
2/5 76% Welcome To New York (2015) A film which says little of consequence beyond fictionalizing its target; only Bisset's Lady Macbeth-like presence hits an appropriately hysterical note for this tabloid-trashy film which quickly chokes on its pretensions. ‐ The List
Posted Jun 18, 2014
2/5 41% In Secret (2014) Lange at least has an angle on her character; the rest of the cast simply hit their marks and spout dialogue like robots, delivering lines which should evoke erotic fervour, but are exchanged without urgency, conviction or belief. ‐ The List
Posted May 20, 2014
2/5 16% Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return (2014) A cynical cash-grab riding on the coat-tails of far better productions. ‐ The List
Posted May 20, 2014
3/5 81% Pantani: The Accidental Death Of A Cyclist (2014) There's not quite enough compelling visual material to justify feature length. ‐ The List
Posted May 13, 2014
3/5 55% Fading Gigolo (2014) Like the character he plays, Turturro clearly wants his film to be adored, but Fading Gigolo's decidedly male fantasy doesn't offer enough laughs or heart to be more than a passing diversion. ‐ The List
Posted May 13, 2014
3/5 27% Pompeii (2014) Much like Anderson's The Three Musketeers, the details are highly dubious, but the effect is strangely pleasing in its daft, anything-goes showmanship. ‐ The List
Posted Apr 21, 2014
4/5 88% The Wind Rises (2014) Few directors would dare to put the dilemmas inherent in military aircraft design to the fore, but Miyazaki's film deals sensitively with the notion that good work may be used for bad ends. ‐ The List
