Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 62% Suspiria (2018) Always bonkers, often brilliant and best seen in good company. Hopefully you'll still be talking afterwards.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 85% Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero (2018) While Logan Lerman, Gérard Depardieu and Helena Bonham Carter are the A-listers lending their voices, their co-star steals the show -- saying so much, without saying anything.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 80% Overlord (2018) Hitting that B-movie trifecta of savagery, set-pieces and snarkiness, Overlord overcomes a bit of hokey CGI at the start and a flatpack French village, and turns into a life-affirming, lock-and-load treat. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 90% A Star Is Born (2018) This is the best work Cooper has done as an actor since The Silver Linings Playbook, and his directorial debut suggests the brightest of futures behind the lens. As for Gaga, well, she steals the show.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2/5 29% Night School (2018) When it comes to chemistry, Hart and Haddish have more together than a Salter Science set under the Christmas tree back in the day. But Night School turns out to be a lesson in the razor-sharp delivery of blunt material.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 76% Black '47 (2018) Like Feeney, this story takes no prisoners, with the narrative pitching two desperate men against each other for nothing more than another day's survival amidst all the devastation.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 61% Yardie (2018) From Ameen's central performance as Dennis, to Irishman John Conroy's cinematography (guess who was on the 'B' camera?), the on-point period detail and must-have soundtrack, Elba gets a lot of things right in Yardie. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 88% I, Dolours (2018) This is, by some distance, the most disturbing film of the year. It is also one of the best.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2.5/5 49% The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) You can hold off beating a path to The Spy Who Dumped Me as it's no McKinnon must-see - but she's still the best of the fun in this ho-hum action caper.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 45% The Meg (2018) Director Jon Turteltaub... has done the popcorn industry a serious service with this carnivorous charmer.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) There are times in the cinema when you realise you're in complete agreement with that old Spinal Tap pearl of wisdom - the one about being jealous of yourself. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 31% Patrick (2018) The search for the canine Chris Pratt is over, and he looks just as good in a waistcoat.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 71% Adrift (2018) A good film - whatever the weather. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) There's a viciousness and wretched real world relevance here that you just don't get in [the] genre. It feels like - either through choice or circumstance - everyone is digging someone's grave, while also shoveling their own. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

1/5 31% Super Troopers 2 (2018) There won't be a worse film between now and December 31 - cop on and go see something else.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2018
4/5 68% On Chesil Beach (2018) Despite the matrimonial mismatch, Howell's chemistry with Ronan makes them a great couple and McEwan - adapting his own work - has done a fine job of bringing his characters from page to screen.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted May 23, 2018
3/5 25% 7 Days in Entebbe (2018) There is plenty to admire, but Entebbe ultimately doesn't deserve the must-see accolade.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted May 16, 2018
2/5 26% Breaking In (2018) Billy Burke has the dark screen charisma for a good villain, but the mind games between his character and Union's won't get pulses racing like, say, Don't Breathe, Panic Room or - going all the way back - Wait Until Dark.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 86% Tully (2018) Things stall on occasion, but a treat is always just minutes away. If there's any good in this world, dragged-along viewing companions will resort to rarely displayed gratitude. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 94% Beast (2018) Beast is like the rollercoaster it shares its name with. Buckle up.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 70% The Delinquent Season (2018) If this film reminds us of anything, it's not to let go lightly. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
3/5 81% The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (2018) The late Victoria Wood joked that a sure sign of growing old was seeing Scholl Sandals on display and thinking they looked nice. The movie equivalent is Guernsey - Sunday evening comfort telly on the big screen.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 67% The Cured (2018) As much about forgiveness as fear, [David] Freyne doesn't neglect the kitchen sink drama dynamic in the lost souls triangle of his three central characters. His film is all the better for that‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2018
4/5 92% Love, Simon (2018) Wisely, [Greg] Berlanti leaves A-listers Jennifer Garner and Josh Duhamel in the background for most of the film and allows his young cast to carry the film in style - even though the ending is all a little too neatly wrapped. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2018
5/5 100% Michael Inside (2017) [Frank] Berry directs with the eye of a documentary maker but could show plenty of others a thing or two about keeping the tension in a drama from start to finish.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2018
5/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) When you can show your hand in a prologue and still subject your audience to a hind quarters-clenching hour-and-a-half you've really got the goods.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2018
4/5 78% Dark River (2018) [Clio] Barnard is a director who deserves her place on your watch list; it would be cinema's loss if she didn't reunite with her Dark River stars in the future - they bring out the best in each other during the worst of times.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 72% Ready Player One (2018) A magic carpet ride whose trailer (deliberately?) doesn't do it justice, Ready Player One is Steven Spielberg having the most fun in decades as the curator-in-chief of all our yesterdays. And it's contagious. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 94% Aurore (I Got Life!) (2017) I Got Life is a delightful little gem of a movie and [Agnès] Jaoui as Aurora plays a stormer, equal parts vulnerability and chutzpah. Tres charmante.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2.5/5 44% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) The ending is good fun, but there's too much messing around beforehand with a whodunit, the military industrial complex and shoehorning new faces into the plot. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2018
4/5 40% Mary Magdalene (2018) With the story told more through the eyes than the dialogue; barren-yet-beautiful locations and the late Jóhann Jóhannsson's score, there's a dreaminess here that's all too rare an experience in modern cinema.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
4/5 89% You Were Never Really Here (2018) The excellent film that you never want to see again - to that harrowing honour roll we now add You Were Never Really Here.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
3.5/5 57% The Lodgers (2018) The Lodgers looks superb with Co Wexford's Loftus Hall - 'the most haunted house in Ireland' - more than ready for its close-up. If you take your coat off chances are you'll be putting it on again as the temperature drops. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 89% I, Tonya (2018) Whatever about Tonya Harding feeling hard done by, spare a though for Margot Robbie. In another year she'd slide through awards season and scoop up every gong going. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2018
3/5 52% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) We're getting Denzel Washington at his best, but with a script that doesn't do justice to his performance.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2018
3/5 52% 12 Strong (2018) That said, [Chris] Hemsworth and director [Nicolai] Fuglsig do enough to steer you in the direction of Stanton's book - another must-read to add to that list.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2018
2.5/5 57% The Commuter (2018) But for all the style and slickness, The Commuter literally goes off the rails and ends up feeling too close to the man-in-a-box trip we took aboard Non-Stop's doomed Transatlantic flight.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 84% Darkest Hour (2017) When it comes to triumphs, here's one for the ages. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2018
4/5 78% All the Money in the World (2017) A film that pulls off the remarkable feat of making you think it was actually made in the Seventies and has somehow found its way to the projector room some four decades later.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2018
5/5 71% Hostiles (2018) It's also, arguably, the most affecting work Bale has ever done in a role specifically written for him by his Out of the Furnace director Scott Cooper. You know it from the moment he puts those eyes on you.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2018
4/5 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) The Last Jedi goes big on identity, confusion and loss as [Rian] Johnson puts characters through the existential wringer like no Star Wars director before him. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2017
4/5 85% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Any head-scratching about Stone playing King ceases within the first few minutes - she's perfect in the role.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2017
4/5 91% Good Time (2017) While it can be argued that things become too far-fetched and skittish in places, the thrill here is that you really don't know what's going to happen next‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 79% Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool (2017) As screen chemistry goes, they've cooked up the strongest of stuff.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2017
3/5 87% Only the Brave (2017) Only the Brave is powerful in its poignancy. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 96% The Florida Project (2017) A summation about the power of The Florida Project feels trite - just go to see it. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
5/5 100% Paddington 2 (2018) The gags, one-liners and set-pieces just keep on coming with a breathlessness that's the hallmark of the best family movies.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Nov 8, 2017
3.5/5 57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) Seeing Johnny Depp back in a decent movie is a luxury that time should indulge.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
4/5 80% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) Anyone who likes their films nicely wrapped up should leave such expectations in the foyer. It's going to get Biblical.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2017
5/5 94% Call Me by Your Name (2018) The twists and turns here will mirror something - or better still someone - from your own life as the story unfolds in drawing rooms, piazzas, discos and bars. If every film flowed as beautifully as this one we'd rarely see daylight.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
