T-Meter Title | Year
2/5 74% Mulan (2020) If anything, Mulan looks nothing like a $200 million blockbuster, but an oddly sanitised B-movie that may well be the worst Disney live-action movie to date. - Daily Express (UK) EDIT

4/5 71% Tenet (2020) Tenet's twists and thoughtful complexities will have the most-devoted Nolan fans heading back to the cinema for a rewatch, to catch whatever they missed the first time around. - Daily Express (UK) EDIT

4/5 73% An American Pickle (2020) Showing off his acting chops expertly, here's hoping this isn't the last of Rogen's dramedies of this ilk. - Daily Express (UK) EDIT

4/5 78% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn returns for a bonkers comic book outing with Ewan McGregor's Black Mask that feels like John Wick and Kill Bill meets Looney Tunes. - Daily Express (UK) EDIT

2/5 77% Frozen II (2019) What follows does provide a few big reveals for fans eager to know what was going on in the trailers, but beyond that, this is a film that lacks the heart and soul of the original. - Daily Express (UK) EDIT

4/5 63% It Chapter Two (2019) The movie's third act makes up for this in a thrilling conclusion to this epic two-parter, one that may leave some fans with a nostalgic tear in their eye rather than thoughts of a sleepless night ahead. - Daily Express (UK) EDIT

4/5 85% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) Naturally, this method across the film's 161-minute runtime is somewhat self-indulgent of Tarantino, with a meandering middle, but ultimately proves a delight all-in-all. - Daily Express (UK) EDIT

4/5 22% Dark Phoenix (2019) A fitting end to the franchise, paying tribute to the best-loved entries and correcting previous mishaps. - Daily Express (UK) EDIT

2/5 30% Venom (2018) It's plain old 'meh'. A film that feels like what you'd expect from a below average superhero flick circa 2004, like Ghost Rider or Fantastic Four. - Daily Express (UK) EDIT

5/5 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Cruise's dynamic with Cavill is one of the film's highlights, making you think this is The Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie that should have been made...Fallout is an improvement on all the previous film's failings, drawing together all the best aspects of them. - Daily Express (UK) EDIT

2/5 47% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) It's sad to say this after such a fun, adventurous return to the franchise in Jurassic World, but Fallen Kingdom is not the sequel we were hoping for. - Daily Express (UK) EDIT

5/5 85% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) This isn't just the biggest superhero movie ever, this is the biggest movie of all time...From the get-go you're thrown right in with no time to waste and not a second is - the two and half hours fly by. - Daily Express (UK) EDIT

4/5 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a bold, fresh take on the franchise, taking a new spin on a well known property. - Daily Express (UK) EDIT

4/5 93% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Easily the funniest Marvel film to date, a huge achievement this far down the line and something that will have audiences crying tears of laughter. - Daily Express (UK) EDIT

5/5 93% Dunkirk (2017) From the off you know you're in great hands. This isn't your typical churned out war movie: this is war and you're in it. Nolan completely immerses the audience in the soldiers' world. - Daily Express (UK) EDIT

3/5 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) Beauty and the Beast's highlight is its stunning special effects and set pieces, especially that of the anthropomorphic household objects, which glimmer with realistic glee -- but this isn't enough to warrant a remake. - Daily Express (UK) EDIT

3/5 75% Kong: Skull Island (2017) While Kong: Skull Island is let down by some of its cast, characters and scripts, it is still great fun as a crash-bang-wallop monster movie and is well worth seeing. - Daily Express (UK) EDIT

4/5 93% Logan (2017) Jackman does his usual gruff protagonist as well as expected, but it's other performances that really stand out; mostly notably Stewart -- haggard, vulnerable but never skipping out on his humour. - Daily Express (UK) EDIT
