T-Meter Title | Year
3/5 23% Dark Phoenix (2019) Ultimately, this is mid-ranking mediocrity in the X-Men league table, but the series goes out on a relative high. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 90% Shazam! (2019) While never going full Deadpool in dissecting the tropes of comic book lore, it pokes fun at the genre while simultaneously making sure DC finally gets the memo: superhero movies can just be an unashamedly good time. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 50% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) A worthy effort at updating a '90s cult classic, Power Rangers subtly mixes up some of the character stereotypes and offers an enjoyably action-packed ride. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 92% Fighting with My Family (2019) At times it's like an extended advert for WWE. As pure sporting drama, the stakes are inevitably lowered by the famously faked bouts, but Paige's personal battle to prove herself does strike true. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 20% The House (2017) They say the House always wins. Unfortunately, that's not the case in this hit-and-miss comedy from first-time director (and co-writer) Andrew Jay Cohen, but there are still some guilty-pleasure laughs to be had along the way. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 16% The Dark Tower (2017) Elba is excellent but there's too little action or story to really get your teeth into...Considering what could have been, it's disappointing - but The Dark Tower is a dud rather than a disaster. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 86% It (2017) Overlong and plodding at times, a game group of young actors can't elevate this formulaic and predictable effort above mediocrity. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 39% The Mountain Between Us (2017) Ultimately let down by a weak, sappy screenplay and a disappointing final act that may have you scoffing into your popcorn. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 85% Wonder (2017) While there are certainly clichés on view, you just can't argue with such a feel-good movie and its mission to spread a little more kindness, tolerance and love. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 45% Red Sparrow (2018) Genuinely unsettling to watch at times, absorbing in others, it ends up too much like many a thriller you've seen before. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 83% Ghost Stories (2018) Sometimes betraying its stage roots, with an episodic structure, the same men who created it as a piece of theatre have done a good job of making this a more cinematic offering. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 71% Kodachrome (2018) Feeling like a well-cast TV movie, the emotional beats and plot developments are all rather predictable, but there's a strong, emotional finale. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 46% Marrowbone (2018) A well-shot and initially captivating Gothic chiller, Marrowbone is let down by its lack of genuine chills and too many plot holes. - One Room With A View EDIT

1/5 24% The Happytime Murders (2018) Lazy, unfunny and a waste of comedic potential...You'd be better served rewatching any of the Muppets films instead. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 66% The Little Stranger (2018) Atmospheric, well-acted and rewards your patience with an intelligent, unusual ending. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 37% Johnny English Strikes Again (2018) While you could never call this a good film, it's an entertaining diversion for 90 minutes if this is your thing. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 41% Slaughterhouse Rulez (2018) The third act, though, is a blood-soaked, laugh-out-loud thrill-ride which makes amends for the film's somewhat laborious opening. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 40% The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018) A solid but ultimately mediocre thriller, not as hard-hitting or thought-provoking as earlier entries in Stieg Larsson's Millennium series. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 68% The Christmas Chronicles (2018) 'Kurt Russell as Santa'...works. Unfortunately, not a lot else does in this cheesy, TV movie-level effort. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 35% Welcome to Marwen (2018) Visually stunning and anchored by a consummately textured performance by Carell, Welcome to Marwen is an intriguing and original drama looking at pain, guilt and the healing power of art. - One Room With A View EDIT
