Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 99% Get Out (2017) Jordan Peele has proven himself to be a dab hand at mixing horror and satire with his smash hit directorial debut, Get Out. It has the scares, it has the smarts, and it also has a lot to say about racism in the US.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 70% Beauty and the Beast (2017) From Watson to the walk-ons, the casting is perfect, with all of the characters more compelling thanks to the -- no pun intended -- fleshed-out plot.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 92% Certain Women (2016) As the saying goes, there are a million ways to live. The beauty here is that we get to spend a little time observing some of them -- while reminding ourselves that we're all really just feeling our way around in the dark.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 83% The Founder (2017) The beauty of director John Lee Hancock's film is that you swing between admiration and antipathy [for Kroc] before making your mind up.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 90% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) Even before the hour mark the film has become too predictable and while Reeves gives it socks, his mirror-in-the-attic magnetism and unique gift for making an eight-course meal out of every line can only go so far.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2.5/5 94% Prevenge (2017) Sadly, mother-to-be-on-killing-spree Prevenge doesn't live up to expectations.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 89% Loving (2016) A film that really gets under the skin -- in every sense.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 77% T2 Trainspotting (2017) All the performances are excellent with the greatest satisfaction coming when Bremner's Spud and Carlyle's Begbie are transformed from figures of fun and fear to the three dimensional characters that were missing in the original movie.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 75% Split (2017) [McAvoy] is an actor at the top of his game, flipping all the switches when it comes to the audience's emotions.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2.5/5 31% Passengers (2016) At two hours, Passengers needed to shave the flight time by 30 minutes in its examination of our big questions.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 71% The Birth of a Nation (2016) There are powerful scenes and strong emotional connections but while as relentless as Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave, Parker's film is not its equal in other respects.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 41% Office Christmas Party (2016) It's no Trading Places or Home Alone in terms of quality, but there is stuff for the grinch and gooey-eyed alike under this tree.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 95% Moana (2016) Don't be surprised if you're singing -- badly -- all the way home.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 94% Arrival (2016) When it comes to welding audiences to their seats, Denis Villeneuve is on one almighty run.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 73% Nocturnal Animals (2016) Those narrative notions ultimately prove to be Nocturnal Animals' undoing, but from performances to tension, it has its moments.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 98% The Babadook (2014) It's brilliantly acted, beautifully shot, has loads of tension and announces newcomer Jennifer Kent as a writer-director of real class and depth.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 84% Deepwater Horizon (2016) The sense of dread is stomach-churning and when the well testing turns into full-blown terror Berg is relentless.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 63% The Magnificent Seven (2016) If you've already seen Hell or High Water and the itching and scratching of waiting for the galactic gun-slinging of Rogue One and Guardians II is still proving too much, give this a go.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

1/5 35% Blair Witch (2016) [A] profanity-provoking session of found footage bingo.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 100% The Young Offenders (2016) When The Young Offenders is pedalling to the max it's very, very funny.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 98% Hell or High Water (2016) It really would be a crime if Hell or High Water didn't get some recognition come awards time. It'll definitely leave its dust in your bones, and something in your eye.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 87% Don't Breathe (2016) To reveal any more plot-wise would spoil your immersion in a movie that has nods to the masters but still manages to deliver real terror from the tropes and has a few tricks up its sleeve too.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 70% Café Society (2016) Initially, Cafe Society feels like it's going to be powered by gags but the fun of the early stages gives way to a more poignant second half as Allen ruminates on grief and guilt.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 58% Bad Moms (2016) Writer-directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore have cast their movie perfectly and there's a wonderful energy between Kunis, Bell and Hahn.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 54% The Purge: Election Year (2016) Anyone on the hunt for the kind of 80s thrills that came with living vicariously through VHS will find that Election Year ticks many boxes.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2/5 76% Lights Out (2016) Having done a good job with the casting of his central trio, it's a mystery why Sandberg didn't play to his screen strengths and give Bello more to get her teeth into.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 66% Nerve (2016) Compared to the Michael Douglas-starring head-melter The Game, Nerve is really only a warm-up, but it is fun and it will keep you off your own phone for a bit. Maybe.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

1.5/5 35% Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) This is one invitation you really should decline.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 78% The Shallows (2016) It's a lean and fast genre movie which shows that some superhero franchise really should give Blake Lively something decent to chew on in the future.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 79% Time Out Of Mind (2015) George's plight is both heartbreaking and chilling and his time spent in waiting areas, hostels and subway trains inspires a greater sense of both tenderness and thankfulness.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 52% Triple 9 (2016) If you like your crime flicks grim and gritty you'll be able to fill your boots here.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 90% A War (Krigen) (2016) [The] performances, and the flawed humanity they so expertly convey, stay with you long after the closing credits, as does the question of what you would do if placed in the same situation as their characters.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 95% Creed (2015) Creed is a special film that pound for pound competes with the best heartstring-pulling of Rocky Balboa's 40-year screen odyssey but, crucially, looks to what's ahead in a very exciting way.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 74% Youth (2015) Here gorgeous visuals and great music - no spoilers - do wonders for eyes and ears while Caine and his co-stars prove the best of visitors to both head and heart.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 77% Goosebumps (2015) Chances are Goosebumps will prove to be a little too scary for those born after 2008 - fun for three-quarters of the family, if you will - but they'll grow into liking it.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 56% Jason Bourne (2016) That finale is a bit too Fast and Furious, while the Las Vegas location doesn't lend itself to being a Ludlum locale. Still, by that stage more than enough has been done to justify another sequel.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2016
2.5/5 31% Daddy's Home (2015) A chocolates-out, phone-off binge of Ted, Old School and The Other Guys will give you more satisfaction.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2016
3.5/5 33% By The Sea (2015) There is no doubt that this drama is a half-hour too long and slow-moving, but Jolie and Pitt do some of their best work in scenes here -- and they don't hold back.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 94% Finding Dory (2016) Time to clear some shelf space beside The Godfather Part II, The Empire Strikes Back and Aliens -- this will be watched just as often.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2016
4/5 52% Demolition (2016) A flawed yet deeply moving meditation on grief from Dallas Buyers Club director Jean-Marc Vallée.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 95% The Jungle Book (2016) Awesome jobs all-round in a blockbuster that's so, so worthy of a sequel.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2016
4/5 88% My Name Is Emily (2017) An adapt-to-your-own-life story about mental health, memory and loss that offers something different across the generations. To say it's a dry-eye challenge is quite the understatement.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 90% Green Room (2016) Fists up, knives out and guns cocked -- one of the films of 2016.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2016
4/5 61% High-Rise (2016) Wheatley's creation of a world within a world is superb and High-Rise's production design puts many of the Hollywood blockbusters to shame. Immersion in these surroundings is absolute, with the building as much of a character as Hiddleston and co.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 75% Traders (2015) Hampering that good work is the fact that Traders becomes far too repetitive as the plot unfolds.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

1.5/5 39% The Other Side of the Door (2016) Even the most forgiving of horror fans may find it hard to locate something good in this turkey.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 63% The Finest Hours (2016) If you or someone you know can reel off even one of Gene Hackman's lines from The Poseidon Adventure or Steve McQueen's from The Towering Inferno, then these two hours, while not being the finest, will pass very quickly.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2/5 24% Victor Frankenstein (2015) Look for your esprit de corpse elsewhere.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
