Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 28% Insurgent (2015) Fans of the source material may still be eager for the next chapter but for casual viewers this is a disappointingly bland sequel.‐ Radio Times

3/5 60% Run All Night (2015) While it may not stray too far from familiar territory, Run All Night is a fast and entertaining example of just why its star's action rebirth has been so successful.‐ Radio Times

2/5 11% Unfinished Business (2015) The odd juvenile chuckle that results from this may sustain you, but in terms of originality and heart this business trip fails to seal the deal.‐ Radio Times

2/5 10% The Boy Next Door (2015) This over-the-top affair may be of some interest to those looking for late night schlock, but for most it will mark a low point in Lopez's career.‐ Radio Times

2/5 26% Jupiter Ascending (2015) While the Wachowskis have not lost their visual flair, the disorganised plot loses your interest very early on.‐ Radio Times

2/5 11% Taken 3 (2015) Different enough to avoid becoming ridiculous, but not original enough to truly excite, Taken 3 may satisfy action fans but it's unlikely anybody will be begging for part four.‐ Radio Times

4/5 96% Citizenfour (2014) While the film loses some urgency in its final third, it's a thrilling, shocking snapshot of a moment in time that will live in history, a reminder of the very real threat that those in power can pose to the citizens they have sworn to protect.‐ Radio Times

2/5 17% Hello Carter (2014) Quite forgettable.‐ Radio Times

3/5 59% I Am Ali (2014) There have been far more detailed and objective examinations, most notably William Klein's Muhammad Ali, the Greatest, but I Am Ali at least gives a fascinating glimpse into the private side of one of history's most public personalities.‐ Radio Times

2/5 10% No Good Deed (2014) The plot stumbles lazily from one thriller trope to the next and, while it does provide some jumps, is predictable to the point where you can call the action before it happens.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2014
4/5 90% The Imitation Game (2014) Fascinating and thrilling, The Imitation Game keeps you gripped by always offering a reminder of what's at stake, as well as exploring the mind of a brilliant but unfairly treated war hero who should never be forgotten.‐ Radio Times

3/5 34% The November Man (2014) While hardly a revelation, it is a welcome return for the actor to the genre that made him famous.‐ Radio Times

3/5 41% This Is Where I Leave You (2014) You can't help but be drawn in by these empathetic, funny performances and the overarching message that there is no such thing as"normal".‐ Radio Times

4/5 No Score Yet Kuro shitsuji (Black Butler) (2014) Energetic and stylish, the film is part action, part detective story, with acrobatic set pieces punctuating a plot that is intricate without being complicated.‐ Radio Times

1/5 8% The Best Of Me (2014) Cynical and lazy, The Best of Me feels as if it's assembled from parts of other, better weepies.‐ Radio Times

3/5 67% Dolphin Tale 2 (2014) In the end, it's the feel-good animal antics that will appeal and keep the audience on edge once peril rears its ugly head.‐ Radio Times

2/5 19% Let's Be Cops (2014) Let's Be Cops raises the occasional smile but is so generic it feels like a thousand other comedies that came before it.‐ Radio Times

3/5 67% Underdogs (Metegol) (2015) The witty script and banter between the three makes for some very funny moments ...‐ Radio Times

3/5 69% The Inbetweeners Movie 2 (2014) The Inbetweeners 2 is unlikely to win over non-fans, but series devotees will find this a more than suitable last (?) hurrah for the kings of uncool.‐ Radio Times

2/5 31% Last Love (2013) Caine's heart-rending flourish aside, this often mawkish drama struggles to make a point.‐ Radio Times

1/5 8% A Haunted House 2 (2014) A Haunted House 2 will satisfy only the basest of humours, while simply repulsing (or offending) the rest of us.‐ Radio Times

4/5 No Score Yet How We Used To Live (2014) Creating something unique out of a much-explored subject, How We Used To Live is both a captivating piece of time travel and a reminder of the capital's ongoing evolution.‐ Radio Times
