Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1/5 79% Personal Shopper (2017) A pointless and plotless cross between a ghost story and spiritualism drama ...‐ Daily Express (UK)

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)

3/5 70% 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)

2/5 78% 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)

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)

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)

3/5 73% 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)

3/5 83% The Founder (2017) Interesting but rather unappetising.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2017
3/5 97% Moonlight (2016) Simple, beautifully made and finely acted ...‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2017
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 91% 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)
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2017
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 82% 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)
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2017
4/5 73% 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)
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2017
3/5 77% 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)
Read More | Posted Jan 29, 2017
2/5 89% Jackie (2016) Portman is excellent but it's hard not to know why the story is being told.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2017
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)

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 71% 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)
Read More | 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)
Read More | 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)
Read More | 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)
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2016
3/5 82% 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)
Read More | Posted Nov 27, 2016
2/5 61% Allied (2016) You really do wonder: what was the point?‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | 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)
Read More | 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)
Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2016
2/5 23% American Pastoral (2016) Nothing much happens beyond one defining incident relatively early on.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | 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)
Read More | 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)
Read More | Posted Nov 13, 2016
2/5 59% 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)
Read More | 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)
Read More | 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)
Read More | 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)
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2016
3/5 96% After Love (L'├ęconomie du couple) (2016) Lafosse has a sharp eye for the way people behave when love curdles into irritation.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2016
4/5 94% Ethel & Ernest (2016) Ethel And Ernest is irresistible.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2016
4/5 90% Doctor Strange (2016) Maybe you should book an appointment with Doctor Strange.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | 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)
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2016
3/5 69% The Infiltrator (2016) It's an over-familiar story and lacks tension.‐ Daily Express (UK)
