Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 83% Midnight Special (2016) It's strange, but not in a good way. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Apr 10, 2016
3/5 73% Welcome to Me (2015) Ultimately, you are tempted to conclude that the film is a bit like Alice's chat show: a vanity project. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Apr 3, 2016
3/5 80% Eddie The Eagle (2016) It's inoffensive and amusing enough. It just doesn't soar. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Apr 3, 2016
2/5 30% My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016) It's clear early on that no great raison d'ĂȘtre for a follow up has been alighted on by writer/star Nia Vardalos and the result plays like a rather desperate attempt to recapture the same eccentric charm of the original. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Mar 27, 2016
1/5 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Director Zack Snyder has blown it. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Mar 27, 2016
5/5 98% Zootopia (2016) The friendship between predator and prey stands as a powerful rebuke to Donald Trump. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Mar 27, 2016
51% Risen (2016) A beefed-up Fiennes gives a sturdy, thoughtful performance, if a touch understated, and it's handsomely mounted by director Kevin Reynolds, best known for action pictures like Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves and Waterworld. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Mar 20, 2016
61% High-Rise (2016) I was expecting to feel many things watching director Ben Wheatley's adaptation of JG Ballard's novel High-Rise: shock, outrage, disgust, hilarity, exhilaration. What I did not expect was boredom. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Mar 20, 2016
90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) Skilfully directed by first-timer Dan Trachtenberg, it's overlong and doesn't sustain the intrigue throughout but an explosion of tension towards the end results in a gripping, if preposterous, finale. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Mar 20, 2016
2/5 12% The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016) The production values are strong and the young cast engage, including Theo James and Miles Teller. But really, it's enough now. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Mar 14, 2016
3/5 87% Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) The story is a little slight and rushed in places but it has (n)oodles of charm and good humour. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Mar 14, 2016
3/5 72% The Ones Below (2016) The premise is strong enough to sustain interest even though the drama lacks emotional intensity and edge-of-the-seat suspense. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Mar 14, 2016
95% Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015) It makes you immediately want to re-watch all his work. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Mar 7, 2016
25% London Has Fallen (2016) Gaping plot holes and plausibility issues render the film ludicrous as does unintentionally (I assume) hilarious dialogue. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Mar 7, 2016
85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) It goes on for ever and is like watching paint dry. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Mar 7, 2016
2/5 10% The Forest (2016) Despite an effective early creepiness, the story becomes incoherent and director Jason Zada relies on increasingly redundant shock tactics. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Feb 28, 2016
4/5 37% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) Part of the reason we laugh so much is the sheer inappropriateness of the humour. It comes as heady relief in a world where everyone is at pains not to cause offence. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Feb 28, 2016
2/5 24% The Benefactor (2016) Gere is watchable but constrained by a rushed screenplay that never gives us a proper handle on the man. The potentially intriguing character dynamics fail to splutter into life. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Feb 28, 2016
2/5 38% Secret in Their Eyes (2015) Sacrifices atmosphere and character interest for the intrigues of a murder plot that simply isn't very compelling or consequential. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Feb 28, 2016
3/5 47% How To Be Single (2016) The story is more relationship drama than wild comedy in the vein of Bridesmaids or Sisters and flits about inconsequentially between the various couples. What holds the attention are the appealing performances. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Feb 21, 2016
4/5 53% Triple 9 (2016) Triple 9 is not a classic of the genre but it's solidly entertaining. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Feb 21, 2016
3/5 23% Zoolander 2 (2016) If only Zoolander 2 had as many laughs as it does celebrity cameos. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Feb 14, 2016
2/5 43% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) This is much more boring than a film called Pride And Prejudice And Zombies has any right to be. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Feb 14, 2016
3/5 60% Concussion (2015) Gripping, highly topical entertainment. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Feb 14, 2016
2/5 89% A Bigger Splash (2016) If looking at other people's holiday snaps is boring, being stuck on their holiday is even worse, even if your fellow guests are Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton and swoony Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Feb 14, 2016
3/5 84% Deadpool (2016) It's deliberately puerile, often joyously, sometimes annoyingly, but never dull as the filmmakers have a blast revelling in general superhero movie misbehaviour. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Feb 14, 2016
2/5 9% Point Break (2015) The stunts are impressive. The rest is a wash out. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Feb 7, 2016
3/5 30% Dad's Army (2016) There really is no reason for the film to exist. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Feb 7, 2016
4/5 73% Trumbo (2015) Despite the dark subject matter there's much levity courtesy of Trumbo's droll wit, plus a roll call of Hollywood legends, including Kirk Douglas, Otto Preminger and an ebullient B-movie producer, Frank King, played with gusto by John Goodman. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Feb 7, 2016
4/5 76% Goosebumps (2015) The picture doesn't have the satirical edge of a Gremlins but it combines a sharp, funny script with some emotional substance. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Feb 7, 2016
3/5 50% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) A sombre military action film that steers clear, at least in Bay terms, of stoking up unwarranted patriotism or exploiting the scenario for cheap sentiment. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Jan 31, 2016
5/5 96% Spotlight (2015) The picture manages to avoid the cliches of the genre by refusing to lionise its "crusaders" or demonise the villains and is all the more authentic and powerful for it. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Jan 31, 2016
2/5 74% Youth (2015) Meandering and inconsequential. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Jan 31, 2016
2/5 35% Our Brand is Crisis (2015) The plot is dull and a few ill-judged moments of comedy just seem weird. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Jan 25, 2016
4/5 88% The Big Short (2015) A subject that may have seemed dry is brought angrily and amusingly to life. Scarily, it seems little has changed to prevent such a crisis happening again. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Jan 25, 2016
3/5 94% Room (2015) Room is superbly acted but is, ironically, less convincing in the "real" world than the "fake" one established by Ma to protect her son in the room. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Jan 18, 2016
4/5 81% The Revenant (2015) The insights are not especially original (the human spirit is strong!) but the execution is astounding. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Jan 18, 2016
4/5 95% Creed (2015) Coogler and Jordan bring an authenticity and intelligence that elevates Creed from the restrictions of a franchise movie. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Jan 18, 2016
31% Daddy's Home (2015) Ferrell and Wahlberg extract every laugh in their gladiatorial dad-combat and there are some laugh-out-loud set-pieces, including Brad's disastrous attempt to impress his children during a national basketball game. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Dec 27, 2015
43% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) A beautifully crafted yarn that places you right on the rolling decks of the whaling ship Essex as it sails into very stormy waters and encounters a nemesis in the form of a monster-sized sperm whale. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Dec 27, 2015
3/5 87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) It is delightfully animated in the original hand-drawn style and brings a big smile to the face ... ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Dec 20, 2015
4/5 60% Sisters (2015) It is overlong and a tad repetitive but a hoot. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Dec 13, 2015
3/5 92% Grandma (2015) The picture touches on several pertinent themes including youth versus experience, love and loss and Lily Tomlin deserves awards recognition but it is never quite funny or powerful enough. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Dec 13, 2015
2/5 33% By The Sea (2015) They may be two of the biggest and sexiest stars on the planet but no one wants to watch their romantic travails, not least if we are being asked to take it all seriously. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Dec 13, 2015
3/5 66% The Night Before (2015) There isn't enough story to sustain the running time and it lacks howlingly funny set-pieces. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Dec 6, 2015
2/5 24% Victor Frankenstein (2015) It is a strange mix of intentional and unintentional laughs. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Dec 6, 2015
2/5 53% The Dressmaker (2016) You will either find The Dressmaker a hoot or a perplexing bore, like a shaggy dog story that is not nearly as entertaining as the teller seems to think. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 22, 2015
2/5 70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) Bar a typically stirring performance from Lawrence, it is all a bit run-of-the-mill; the survival challenges could come from a computer game and lack the grimly compelling dynamic of the child-versus-child Hunger Games themselves. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 22, 2015
2/5 28% Fathers And Daughters (2016) Fathers And Daughters is a strongly acted but unconvincing drama starring Russell Crowe as a widower struggling to raise his five-year-old daughter Katie in 1989. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
Posted Nov 16, 2015
3/5 86% Steve Jobs (2015) As well as being tiresome it does not ring true. ‐ Daily Express (UK)
