Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 61% Yardie (2018) The choice of Aml Ameen as the lead is an excellent one... Even on occasions when the plot wobbles, the young actor eats up the screen.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 25% 7 Days in Entebbe (2018) Unfortunately, admirable efforts to cram in various important players leads to the central characters being shunted and a message which is almost as muddled as the thinking of the militant revolutionaries.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 16% The Titan (2018) Thankfully, Taylor Schilling is engaging as Rick's wife Abi, offering enough emotional pull to keep the audience caring when the action kicks off.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 53% Rampage (2018) Tanks are swatted like flies, the towering beasts get into a scrap and The Rock goes into full hero mode.‐ The Sun (UK)

4/5 92% Love, Simon (2018) Why did we have to wait until 2018 to see a funny, big-hearted drama on this important topic?‐ The Sun (UK)

1/5 30% Wonder Wheel (2017) Amazon Studios has clearly got more money than sense if it didn't realise a cast of self-obsessed characters yapping on endlessly about their problems would be a cinematic turn- off.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 71% The Mercy (2017) This is one of those "why-oh-why?" movies where you want to turn away from the terrible decisions unfolding on screen - but can't.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 23% The 15:17 to Paris (2018) When it comes to making a true story, a really true story, The 15:17 To Paris is long overdue.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 92% Stronger (2017) The acting carries a gritty yet otherwise unadventurous triumph over tragedy.‐ The Sun (UK)

4/5 84% Wonder (2017) Wonder isn't without its imperfections, but it definitely stands out from the family-movie crowd.‐ The Sun (UK)

4/5 85% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Smashing the snappy dialogue out of the court is the supremely funny Steve Carell as Riggs and the wonderfully buoyant Emma Stone as King.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 80% Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool (2017) The actors ... bring a so-so script to life.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 96% The Florida Project (2017) The combination of the worldly wise Bobby and the cheekily innocent Moonee is its charming heart.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) Branagh, who also directs, wisely focuses on the detective and his moral dilemmas rather than the murder mystery.‐ The Sun (UK)

4/5 66% Breathe (2017) My bet is that by the end, no matter how much you try to constrict your chest, emotions will burst out.‐ The Sun (UK)

2/5 8% The Emoji Movie (2017) It fails to deliver any emotion.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2017
3/5 29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) Unfortunately, giving directors the chance to let their imaginations run riot can lead to tiring excess and that is what happens in this fifth episode of the series.‐ The Sun (UK)

2/5 49% The Promise (2017) I doubt the film makers bothered consulting anyone Armenian or Turkish before finishing this very Hollywood take on a man-made disaster.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 95% Finding Vivian Maier (2014) Why make a film about an unknown nanny from New York? The answer is because Vivian took photos that are as beautiful and powerful as those of any of the greatest photographers.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2016
2/5 92% Grand Central (2014) The scariest part of this film is when the beepers indicating excessive exposure to invisible death rays go haywire. But director Rebecca Zlotowski focuses more on an underpowered love story.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 100% Bobby (2016) With the 50th anniversary of England's win fast approaching, this is a chance to revisit how Bobby made football a beautiful game.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 72% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) Gets daft and twisty near the end but will sate your Night Manager appetite amply.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted May 12, 2016
3/5 44% The Angry Birds Movie (2016) This is surprisingly fun, with loveable characters.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted May 12, 2016
2/5 47% How To Be Single (2016) Wilson and Johnson seem to be in different movies from each other and the film proves coupling shock-value comedy and traditional romance can be disastrous.‐ The Sun (UK)

4/5 90% A Bigger Splash (2016) Ralph Fiennes is a tidal wave of energy, sweeping up all before him in this thriller.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 43% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) Only a camp Matt Smith as Lily James's unwanted suitor raises any laughs. The rest of the cast escape with their pride in tatters.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 59% Concussion (2015) It is a passionate outsider-film driven by Smith's considerable acting power.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2016
3/5 50% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) Bay gives plenty of punch, power and passion to what is a true story.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2016
2/5 24% Dark Places (2015) Made-for-TV direction and a twist which makes Gone Girl's revelation seem totally plausible dims Dark Places. ‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 13% Ride Along 2 (2016) Take a seat if you're happy to see Another 48 Hours in Rush Hour with Bad Boys.‐ The Sun (UK)

4/5 74% The Hateful Eight (2015) With The Hateful Eight, Tarantino has undoubtedly confirmed his reputation as a genius story teller.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 7, 2016
3/5 71% Miss You Already (2015) It's the gallows humour delivered with warmth by Collette, Drew Barrymore, Dominic Cooper and Paddy Considine that prevents this becoming unbearably maudlin.‐ The Sun (UK)

2/5 6% Some Kind of Beautiful (2015) Rather than Pierce giving a lecture on how to be a better person, he should have stuck to bedding the half-sisters played by Jessica Alba and Salma Hayek.‐ The Sun (UK)

5/5 85% Trainwreck (2015) It will be the funniest film you go to see this year.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2016
4/5 98% Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck (2015) If, like me, Nirvana were a big part of your youth this "first official" documentary is essential viewing.‐ The Sun (UK)

2/5 75% Good Kill (2015) Remote, relentless and lacking the human touch. That's a description of drones that could also be applied to this Ethan Hawke movie.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 31% Wild Card (2015) It was a risk asking Statham to do more than just bash baddies... it kind of pays off.‐ The Sun (UK)

2/5 74% The Voices (2015) Rarely do movies shout so loud yet communicate so little.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 100% Radiator (2015) Radiator often feels a bit too much like a Radio 4 play, but it makes for a good one about the difficulties faced by pensioners.‐ The Sun (UK)

2/5 0% Age Of Kill (2015) Age Of Kill isn't just Taken, it's outright theft.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2016
4/5 82% Second Coming (2014) We see a family at its best and at its worst, with the grumpy mealtime silences and the playful banter. Much of this is down to the first-rate performances from Elba and Marshall.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2016
2/5 14% Anti-Social (2015) Only at the end does Anti-Social get going with a genuinely tense finale. Or perhaps I was just glad that everyone had stopped talking.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2016
3/5 36% All Creatures Big and Small (Ooops! Noah is Gone...) (2015) Two By Two is more fun than Russell Crowe's Noah, but if you miss this it's not the end of the world.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2016
3/5 94% The Diary Of A Teenage Girl (2015) [Bel Powley], Alexander Skarsgård as the boyfriend, and Kristen Wiig as the mum all display the subtlety not in the script.‐ The Sun (UK)

2/5 49% Manglehorn (2015) Only the fine acting performances offer any pleasure.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2016
2/5 50% Miss Julie (2014) It starts off as a will-they-won't-they as to whether Chastain's baron's daughter will sleep with Farrell. It ends up as a will-they-won't-they ever shut up. Should have been called Shouting Miss Julie.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 91% Dear White People (2014) Dear White People is too smart for its own good.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2015
3/5 90% Love & Mercy (2015) Paul Dano, as the young Brian, does a better job of conveying his madness than John Cusack as the older version, who falls for Elizabeth Banks' car saleswoman.‐ The Sun (UK)
