T-Meter Title | Year
2/5 31% Daddy's Home (2015) That it isn't entirely dreadful is testament to the ease with which the two leads are able to make even the most predictable of jokes set-ups and executions seem somewhat humorous. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 88% The Lady In The Van (2015) A large part of the charm and the appeal of the film is seeing how Smith has really honed and grown into the performance in the ensuing years since her first rendition. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 50% Tomorrowland (2015) This is a typically family-friendly jaunt from Disney that is as authentically sanguine as it is relentlessly entertaining, free from the constraints of the type of franchise loyalty that arrests the studio's other properties elsewhere. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 73% A Royal Night Out (2015) Battling through the predictable script with estimable, though mostly groan-inducingly clipped English, the film's cast are lumbered with plot machination after plot machination - CineVue EDIT

3/5 47% A Little Chaos (2015) With a generous offering of pomp elsewhere, Rickman does manage to avoid the usual overstatements most actor-directors weigh their films down with, sculpting a project that's stately and modest, but precious little besides. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 79% Beyond Clueless (2014) Beyond Clueless is a remarkable redressing of the cinema essay style of filmmaking, combining a brilliantly written and scholarly script with an intellectually stimulating approach. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 31% Love, Rosie (2015) Mimicking almost verbatim the plot fluctuations of David Nicholls' 2009 novel One Day, Love, Rosie is an uninventive adaptation that revels in base-level humour. - CineVue EDIT

1/5 46% Wish I Was Here (2014) Strikes a curious balance of having too much to say and yet saying nothing at all. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 95% Finding Vivian Maier (2014) Although Maier may not have welcomed this newfound, globally recognised appreciation herself, Maloof and Siskel have done a worthwhile job of at least putting her on the map. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 87% Bright Days Ahead (2014) Bright Days Ahead is a likable piece offering reassurance that life begins, rather than ends, at sixty. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 100% Looking for Light: Jane Bown (2014) As a showcasing of the evolution of such a remarkable career, Looking for Light is a stimulating distillation of a life captured on celluloid and a woman who thrived in a predominantly male-driven industry. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 82% Crystal Fairy (2013) Though it may not be entirely memorable, it makes for an underplayed and gently humorous watch. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 31% Aroused (2013) Aroused feels ultimately rushed and too slight for the expansive material and themes it sets out to tackle. - CineVue EDIT

1/5 27% King Of The Travellers (2012) King of the Travellers is a near-total mess of ideas drowned out by a lack of tonal consistency. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 45% Into the White (2013) Plods from one sequence to the next, unable to escape an inherent feeling of transparency, of wearing its simple themes on its humdrum sleeve. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 43% A Night in the Woods (2013) Perhaps the most surprising element in Parry's film is how generally placid it is in attempting to deliver scares wrapped in emotional anguish. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 54% Welcome to the Rileys (2010) Takes clichéd storytelling and predictability and runs with it, padding out a 110-minute runtime with a story that has the ability to be compelling if it wasn't for the fact that we have seen it all before. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 93% Midnight in Paris (2011) A gear shift for a director whose weathered career is jolted back to life, matching bouncy dialogue and a whimsically comical plot with the glossy climes of the sepia toned city of love. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 38% Cars 2 (2011) Cars 2 suffers from a charmless and immoderately talky storyline that hikes up the thrills but forgets the widespread appeal of its far superior contemporaries. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 96% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 (2011) David Yates finally gives us the Harry Potter film we have been waiting for; a beautifully shot, incredibly loyal final chapter that mixes heartfelt emotion, strong performances and miraculous action. - CineVue EDIT

1/5 33% The Hangover Part II (2011) A sluggish, pointless and overly vulgar shot for shot copy of its far superior forebearer, though it is neither as clever or as tactful. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 60% Scream 4 (2011) Where the film works best is in its sharp, self-aware attitude toward the rules of the horror genre, and can perhaps be forgiven its occasionally unexciting dialogue and ridiculous one-liners. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 46% You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (2010) Rather uninspired and insubstantial, but entirely watchable. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 55% Unknown (2011) With little going for it and a laughable script, Unknown coasts along at a fast enough pace to justify the 113 minute runtime. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 73% Monsters (2010) Beautifully shot and capably handled, Edwards' cinematic directorial debut is a heartfelt and touching exploration of two well-drawn, troubled characters, which just happens to feature extraterrestrials as a backdrop to the central narrative. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 54% The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (2010) Making up for the series' somewhat tepid second installment, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest is a gripping and deeply satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Les compagnons de la marguerite (2011) Unspoilt by the heart-warming affection between the two protagonists and benefiting from a transient theme, Afternoons with Marguerite features an amicable geriatric relationship, proving ultimately more refreshing given its rarity in modern day cinema. - CineVue EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 6, 2018
2/5 40% Due Date (2010) A fairly unoriginal movie which exasperates any opportunities for comedy, with the end results being run of the mill and slightly contrived. - CineVue EDIT
