Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 89% Jackie (2016) Portman is excellent but it's hard not to know why the story is being told. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Jan 22, 2017
87% Lion (2016) Lion may not roar but it does have a big heart. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Jan 22, 2017
2/5 34% Live By Night (2017) It's very handsomely made and occasionally sparks into life, such as when Joe comes up against the local Klu Klux Klan, but it feels thin and underdeveloped. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Jan 16, 2017
2/5 96% Manchester by the Sea (2016) It's atmospheric and directed with precision and a strong feel for local character. But it's dreary when it should be devastating. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Jan 16, 2017
4/5 93% La La Land (2016) Chazelle has taken a big gamble with this homage. It could have turned out horribly twee and sentimental. Instead the picture celebrates a movie-making form from yesteryear with dazzling visual technique and a huge dollop of charm. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Jan 16, 2017
2/5 31% Passengers (2016) Just a soppy romantic drama. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Dec 18, 2016
4/5 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) A cleverly conceived one-off that forges its own identity with a new set of characters, a contained storyline and a kind of stripped-down tone and visual approach free of the grandiosity of the series. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Dec 18, 2016
42% Office Christmas Party (2016) If you aren't feeling in the Christmas mood then watch Office Christmas Party... and you still won't be. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Dec 11, 2016
3/5 72% The Birth of a Nation (2016) There is some fascinating history here and Parker clearly has talent to burn but Birth Of A Nation is unexpectedly boring. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Dec 11, 2016
2/5 61% Snowden (2016) What he, and the film, lacks is a burning do-or-die conviction that he was in the right. As a piece of agitprop if nothing else, therefore, the film is a failure. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Dec 11, 2016
4/5 71% Bleed For This (2016) It is a simple old-fashioned quest - the story holds few surprises - but done with immense charm and brio. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Dec 4, 2016
5/5 95% Moana (2016) A gloriously exuberant and colourful adventure set in Polynesia which is both pleasingly traditional (there are songs and a plucky heroine!) and wittily modern (no handsome prince required). ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Dec 4, 2016
5/5 85% Sully (2016) Eastwood steers the story with deceptive expertise while Hanks gives a peerless study in unassuming heroism as his character, Sully, makes one of the most extraordinary escapes in aviation history as if it was all in a day's work. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Dec 4, 2016
1/5 23% Bad Santa 2 (2016) Achingly puerile with a sackful of yawningly repetitive and crude gags. In the words of Alan Rickman's Sheriff of Nottingham, it's time to cancel Christmas. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 27, 2016
3/5 89% A United Kingdom (2017) It's handsomely mounted and David Oyelowo (Martin Luther King in Selma) gives a rousing performance as the idealistic Seretse. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 27, 2016
2/5 61% Allied (2016) You really do wonder: what was the point? ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 27, 2016
3/5 82% Indignation (2016) A superbly acted and rather poignant coming-of-age drama set in 1951 which ... portrays a promising "American" life undone by the fates. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 20, 2016
3/5 73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) With impeccable production design and special effects it's always a feast for the eyes and Newt Scamander is such a decent sort, charmingly played by Redmayne, you never stop caring. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 20, 2016
2/5 23% American Pastoral (2016) Nothing much happens beyond one defining incident relatively early on. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 13, 2016
2/5 41% 100 Streets (2017) The cast perform strongly, especially the charismatic Drameh and Charlie Creed-Miles as a cabbie trying to adopt a child, but the material lets them down; a melodramatic climax is particularly embarrassing. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 13, 2016
3/5 94% Arrival (2016) An intellect-stroking sci-fi film that asks you to imagine how humanity might respond, emotionally rather than militarily, in the event of an arrival from outer space. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 13, 2016
2/5 60% The Light Between Oceans (2016) It's well acted and lovely to look at but extremely slow (the first 45 minutes are all prologue) and predictable; you know from the beginning it's not going to end well. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 9, 2016
3/5 79% American Honey (2016) It's an exhilaratingly unconventional ride and benefits from a fearless central performance from Lane but eventually becomes as numbing as any long motorway journey. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 9, 2016
2/5 63% Storks (2016) Pre-schoolers may find it diverting but it's all rather strange and unfunny. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 9, 2016
3/5 19% Inferno (2016) It's a mental workout of sorts and a pleasant way of seeing Italy - even if Robert Langdon makes for a mostly incomprehensible tour guide. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 9, 2016
3/5 95% After Love (L'√©conomie du couple) (2016) Lafosse has a sharp eye for the way people behave when love curdles into irritation. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 9, 2016
4/5 94% Ethel & Ernest (2016) Ethel And Ernest is irresistible. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 9, 2016
4/5 90% Doctor Strange (2016) Maybe you should book an appointment with Doctor Strange. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 9, 2016
4/5 95% The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years (2016) New fans will be immersed in the full force of Beatlemania; oldies will enjoy a nostalgic look at a pop culture maelstrom, the like of which we've never seen before or since. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 9, 2016
3/5 69% The Infiltrator (2016) It's an over-familiar story and lacks tension. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 9, 2016
5/5 76% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) Directed with style and wit by Sharon Maguire, who made the original, Bridget Jones's Baby delivers in every department. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 9, 2016
4/5 98% Hell or High Water (2016) Bridges is on fine form and Pine and Foster are a combustible duo. Mackenzie doesn't put a horse-shoed foot wrong. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 9, 2016
1/5 25% Ben-Hur (2016) Not even the famous chariot race set my pulse racing. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 9, 2016
4/5 66% Anthropoid (2016) This is no tale of derring do but a powerful and thought-provoking salute to raw courage, filmed edge-of-the-seat-style by Ellis himself. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 9, 2016
2/5 82% Captain Fantastic (2016) By the unintentionally creepy ending you'll be screaming for the maddening Ben to be locked up - and for the children to be set free. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 9, 2016
2/5 51% The Accountant (2016) This ill-computed action thriller is daft, laboured and over-complicated, containing as much back story as it does present day plot. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 7, 2016
3/5 72% Nocturnal Animals (2016) Far too much time is devoted to the novel's story and too little to the present-day characters, while the themes and revelations are all rather pat. However, it is well acted and photographed. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 7, 2016
4/5 75% A Street Cat Named Bob (2016) [A] charming and life-affirming film directed by veteran Roger Spottiswoode. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 7, 2016
3/5 92% Queen of Katwe (2016) The picture pulses with colour, vitality and the locals' natural ebullience, without glossing over grim realities too much. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Oct 23, 2016
2/5 19% Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016) Draws the characters very broadly, doesn't contain nearly enough good jokes and drags out a thin and predictable espionage plot. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Oct 23, 2016
4/5 92% I, Daniel Blake (2016) If at times the plotting feels a little manufactured to make certain points, the humanity of the characters and their quiet suffering is moving and aided by outstanding performances; especially from Squires. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Oct 23, 2016
4/5 37% Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016) Cruise is at peak starriness in Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, burning with charisma, purpose and old-school don't-mess-with-the-hero machismo. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Oct 23, 2016
3.5/5 89% Blood Father (2016) A raw B-movie in which Gibson blazes with dark charisma, edgy wit and the kind of suppressed anger that became his trademark. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Oct 9, 2016
93% My Scientology Movie (2017) There is little factual revelation here but by the powerful conclusion, you do feel that Theroux has uncovered something of the dark soul of the organisation. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Oct 9, 2016
3/5 43% The Girl on the Train (2016) It's all rather dispiriting and not quite the fun, trashy, thriller romp I was hoping for. Neither does it become terribly exciting or suspenseful ... ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Oct 9, 2016
3/5 63% The Magnificent Seven (2016) There are shoot-outs galore and the story trots along but what should be rousing entertainment falls rather flat. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Sep 25, 2016
4/5 96% De Palma (2016) Fascinating ... ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Sep 25, 2016
3/5 84% The Girl With All the Gifts (2016) The picture's scale and production design is to be applauded but ultimately it is an unsatisfying hybrid itself - neither tense action-thriller nor compelling moral drama. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Sep 25, 2016
3/5 83% Sausage Party (2016) A tasty diversion. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Sep 4, 2016
2/5 70% Caf√© Society (2016) The story is just another retread of Allen's tiresome and peculiar obsession with relationships between ageing, powerful men and delightful ingenues who, frankly, deserve much better. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
