Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 28% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) It's just a brash, messy and overblown blockbuster that uses the legend of Arthur as a marketing hook for a blokey tale of medieval feuding.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 74% Miss Sloane (2016) Perhaps this look at the amoral world of lobbying would have been better served as a House Of Cards-style TV drama.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 71% Alien: Covenant (2017) Delivers in terms of horror and suspense, despite a slow build up and some rather pretentious philosophical longueurs.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 90% Mindhorn (2016) The plot can't quite generate enough intrigue or tension to make the picture feel like much more than a one-joke movie, albeit a very funny one.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 48% The Promise (2017) The cast and production values keep you watching even as the plotting loses its grip.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 81% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) If the original was a space opera, the sequel is more like a soap opera with complicated and angry familial relationships determining the action.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 92% Lady Macbeth (2017) Directed with spare intensity by William Oldroyd, it's a picture as icily controlled as its heroine is wild and unpredictable.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 61% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) It's two hours of sturdy heroism and 10 minutes of suspense at the end.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 90% Letters From Baghdad (2017) Her story is told mostly via her letters, read by Tilda Swinton, and it contains astute warnings for the future. But frustratingly there are no contributions from historians or biographers to provide context and analysis.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 87% Their Finest (2017) Three cheers for Nighy who is a hoot and rather touching as an old ham past his sell by date, even if it is ironic that in a film that celebrates female empowerment the most colourful and charming character is a man.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 46% Going in Style (2017) It's light-hearted, well-intentioned wish fulfilment for anyone with creaking joints.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 38% Aftermath (2017) Arnie seems up to the task. But thanks to a weak screenplay it remains merely a curiosity in the action legend's increasingly patchy CV.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 52% The Boss Baby (2017) Best of all, for a film about a protagonist in nappies, is the welcome absence of poop jokes.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2017
3/5 38% Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) Smurfs: The Lost Village is a jolly all-animation outing for the thumb-sized blue creatures; the previous two films combined live-action and animation.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 67% Free Fire (2017) The action is well orchestrated, lightened by schoolyard barbs fired off between the bullets.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 2, 2017
4/5 45% Ghost in the Shell (2017) Johansson is terrific as the soulful cyborg and there's strong support from Binoche, Takeshi Kitano as her shrewd boss and Michael Pitt as a troubled hacker (aren't they all?), called Kuze.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 2, 2017
3/5 68% Life (2017) The suspense is well sustained, even if it's hard to care too much about anyone.‐ Daily Express (UK)

1/5 16% CHIPS (2017) Not even as dumb entertainment does the picture work.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2017
3/5 88% The Lost City of Z (2017) The Lost City Of Z is ambitious and well made and full of incidental interest but you can't help feeling that it's a missed opportunity.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2017
1/5 79% Personal Shopper (2017) A pointless and plotless cross between a ghost story and spiritualism drama ...‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2017
4/5 99% Get Out (2017) Proof that you don't need stars or special effects to lure an audience. Just a fresh idea and a twisted imagination.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2017
3/5 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) Too hidebound to the original, never quite evolving an identity or mood of its own while attempts to "modernise" the tale feel a touch too forced and become a little grating.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2017
2/5 76% Kong: Skull Island (2017) Kong: Skull Island is an overblown monster movie that constitutes just shy of two hours of meaningless spectacle.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2017
4/5 90% Elle (2016) A complex, fascinating and often highly amusing enigma of a modern woman in a picture that is almost impossible to define; much like its protagonist.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2017
2/5 17% The Time of Their Lives (2017) A wearying trudge thanks to a silly screenplay that finds few laughs and little genuine emotion despite brazen attempts to pull at the heartstrings.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 92% Logan (2017) After the 140-minute running time I felt as exhausted as Wolverine.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2017
3/5 78% Viceroy's House (2017) The characters are thinly sketched and it never feels anything other than a contrived attempt to dramatise the divisions that opened up within the country as Hindus and Muslims jostled for power. There's no genuine emotion.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 82% George Best: All by Himself (2017) The film is well put together and Best's talent shines in the archive footage, although you do wonder if he achieved quite as much to deserve all the adulation ...‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 80% Patriots Day (2017) Ultimately, there is a vacuum where the real investigation should be - into the characters and the human heart.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 26, 2017
3/5 84% The Founder (2017) Interesting but rather unappetising.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2017
3/5 98% Moonlight (2016) Simple, beautifully made and finely acted ...‐ Daily Express (UK)

5/5 93% Hidden Figures (2017) Well, I know which film I'll be rooting for come Oscar night.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 88% 20th Century Women (2017) A missed opportunity.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2017
3/5 90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) It provides solid enough brickwork for a new franchise and there's no denying this Bat is a mighty relief from the Batfleck.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 93% Fences (2016) On stage, this would no doubt be powerful stuff but Washington the director has done little to open up the drama and adapt it for the big screen.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 87% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) [A] simple but powerful true story ...‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2017
3/5 83% Denial (2016) The drama doesn't grip, not helped by making little effort to get under the skin of Irving and understand him psychologically - however unpleasant he may be.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 72% Sing (2016) It's got classic songs (Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Taylor Swift), singing animals and good jokes. What more could you want?‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 78% T2 Trainspotting (2017) How could lightening strike twice? The result is both a touching elegy to lost youth and frustrating reminder of past glories.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 89% Jackie (2016) Portman is excellent but it's hard not to know why the story is being told.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 86% Lion (2016) Lion may not roar but it does have a big heart.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | 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)
Read More | 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)
Read More | 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)
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2017
2/5 31% Passengers (2016) Just a soppy romantic drama.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | 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)
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2016
41% 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)
Read More | 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)
Read More | 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)
Read More | 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)
