Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
42% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) "There's a lot of Pride And Prejudice, and some unremarkable, low-budget Zombies. But the film is very much less than the sum of its parts. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Feb 1, 2016
100% Little Men "Small and intimate it may be - and Ira Sachs' Little Men is more compact than his last slow-burn hit Love Is Strange - but there's no end to the discreet pleasures on screen here. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Jan 26, 2016
100% Sing Street "It's crowd-pleasing, heart-warming, hits all the right notes, and is eager to please. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Jan 25, 2016
44% The Hollars "Desperately charming as it goes about its business ... " ‐ Screen International
Posted Jan 25, 2016
83% Wiener-Dog "Solondz's latest is morose and jaundiced and, although uneven, a relentlessly clever little film. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Jan 24, 2016
94% Manchester by the Sea "Manchester By The Sea is a meticulous, rich film: there's such a depth to this story of a man living with unbearable grief, a sense of time and place and the changing of the seasons, you feel you could almost touch it. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Jan 24, 2016
85% Morris from America "Morris From America is always match-fit when it comes to the rapport between Morris and his dad Curtis, first shown in early, loving sequences where they goof around and talk about music. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Jan 23, 2016
93% Min lilla syster (My Skinny Sister) "As a depiction of the tug and pull of sibling emotions, My Skinny Sister hits the target with an almost-unnerving accuracy. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Dec 30, 2015
98% Phoenix (2015) "Christian Petzold's collaboration with the actress Nina Hoss reaches a new level of intensity in Phoenix, a moving drama set in the rubble of post-war Berlin. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Dec 14, 2015
65% Krampus (2015) "Krampus, when he eventually shows his cards, is a dark delight, but this film has more to offer than a single monster .. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Dec 3, 2015
43% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) "Some stirring, old-fashioned spectacle helps lift this Moby Dick origins story from what might otherwise have been a watery grave. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Dec 2, 2015
47% Criminal Activities (2015) "Its combined cast has an all-ages appeal, although Robert Lowell's screenplay struggles to drive through 94 minutes. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Nov 20, 2015
100% Kilo Two Bravo (2015) "It is an effective reminder of the youth, determination and heroism of the armed forces; a grisly modern-day coda to the upcoming Testament Of Youth. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Nov 2, 2015
No Score Yet I dine h├Žnder "Sahlstrom's hero is unlikeable, his heroine unconfident. His film is neither and it is a strikingly well-researched debut which nonetheless hits some predictable beats. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Oct 23, 2015
89% What Our Fathers Did: A Nazi Legacy (2015) "Audiences may feel that they have seen all they can manage about Nazi Germany and the holocaust. This proves they have not. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Oct 22, 2015
64% Spectre (2015) "Mendes isn't afraid to hurl every trick in the Bond book onscreen to remind us of why we love 007. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Oct 21, 2015
88% Bone Tomahawk (2015) "Long, slow and low-budget, Bone Tomahawk is also disturbingly tense, hyper-violent, and destined to attract an adoring fanboy following. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Oct 12, 2015
100% Crocodile Gennadiy "A powerful, meaty documentary. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Oct 9, 2015
93% Coming Home (2015) "Zhang Yimou is now 64 years old, and the personal pain that permeated his last film to deal directly with the Cultural Revolution, To Live, has faded to a sad resignation and a mood of tender forgiveness in the emotional Coming Home. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Oct 1, 2015
100% Being AP "It's cinematic, almost lyrical; steam rising off the horses on their early-morning workouts at the Irish-run stables. The elusive, gruff trainers and owners, the professional, unsentimentalised communication between man and beast. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 30, 2015
24% Every Thing Will Be Fine (2015) "A disappointingly flat affair. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 16, 2015
90% The Meddler (2016) "A sweetly comedic ode to mothers everywhere. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 16, 2015
No Score Yet Being Charlie "It's not glib, and the screenplay has clearly been worked on, but Being Charlie lacks real gravitas as it skirts around the troubled lives of the California elite. " ‐ Screen International

Posted Sep 14, 2015
67% High-Rise (2016) "A complex, fluid interpretation which is respectful and almost-faithful while still being its own beautiful, crazed beast. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 14, 2015
61% Truth (2015) "Despite its awkward start, the film grows significantly in stature, thanks mainly to its two headlining stars who hit all the right notes. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 13, 2015
33% Kill Your Friends "It's as if Niven fears any glimpse of humanity might risk the project's integrity, but the lack of human empathy ultimately becomes this project's biggest handicap. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 12, 2015
29% I Saw the Light (2016) "Hiddleston's intense performance lends a little frisson to an otherwise familiar, if gorgeously-mounted tale about a troubled musical genius who is inevitably, gruellingly, felled by his demons. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 12, 2015
73% Suffragette (2015) "It's a film with movement and energy. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 5, 2015
71% He Named Me Malala (2015) "Slim but powerful ... " ‐ Screen International

Posted Sep 3, 2015
91% Beasts of No Nation (2015) "A project of considerable integrity which makes for a consistently-engrossing, if over-long, viewing experience. " ‐ Screen International

Posted Aug 21, 2015
100% Aferim! (2016) "Through keeping the camera mostly at a distance, with the viewer observing and hearing rather being fed emotional cues, Radu invites an intellectual judgment. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Aug 20, 2015
8% Hitman: Agent 47 (2015) "All three actors deliver their roles with palpable conviction, which resonates loudly in a film which is a hollow drum. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Aug 19, 2015
89% Marshland (2016) "The swampy lowlands at the mouth of Spain's Guadalquivir River, as lensed by cinematographer Alex Catalan, help liberate the film from its genre moorings to produce a striking new form of Southern Gothic. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Aug 13, 2015
8% Absolutely Anything "If it's absolutely anything, this film is perhaps a call for the old guard to fall back and make way for the new. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Aug 12, 2015
78% Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans (2015) "Does nothing to salvage McQueen's reputation, as, in essence, a paranoid, drug-taking womaniser who loved fast cars and was prone to domestic violence. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Jul 20, 2015
No Score Yet King Jack "A graceful, small-scale film set in working-class Hudson Valley, New York over the course of an aimless summer break. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Jun 19, 2015
55% Minions (2015) "A crazy, spirited, if simplistic fusion of off-beat adult humour blended with the sensibility of an anarchic toddler. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Jun 18, 2015
33% Ardor (2015) "In its favour, El Arbor looks bewitching, the banks of the Parana River shrouded in mist and vegetation. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Jun 8, 2015
71% London Road "Dazzling, if niche, entertainment. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Jun 8, 2015
84% Alleluia (2015) "Belgian director Fabrice Du Welz makes an arresting return to the screen with Alleluia, a trippy, offbeat serial killer film propelled by a savagely good Lola Duenas. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Jun 1, 2015
30% Poltergeist (2015) "If there's a case to be made for "re-imagining" classic cinema, Poltergeist isn't part of it. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 19, 2015
93% Sicario (2015) "Confronting the war on drugs in a way which is cinematic, but far from superficial, Sicario - cartel slang for 'hitman' - is very dark, but it's also exciting. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 19, 2015
96% Amy (2015) "It's uneasy viewing - a cautionary tale. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 16, 2015
73% A Royal Night Out (2015) "A knockabout fantasy with a perfect, if palpably preposterous, pedigree for box office success. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 5, 2015
48% Spike Island (2015) "[Director Whitecross has an] uncanny visual ability with music sequences as the film joyously skips through a pitch-perfect Madchester soundtrack. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 4, 2015
65% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) "As with Pitch Perfect, the actresses - Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Banks herself, joined this time by Hailee Steinfeld - are the film's real charm, alongside those show-stopper a capella sequences, choreographed again by Aakomon Jones. " ‐ Screen International
