Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 62% Mary Queen of Scots (2018) I felt it too stylised, too fluid with history and spends the whole film building up to a moment that left me a bit nonplussed...‐ The Sun (UK)

4/5 68% Beautiful Boy (2018) Deeply touching.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 59% The Front Runner (2018) Reitman delivers a robust and occasionally flashy film. I'm just not quite sure it manages to get it all across.‐ The Sun (UK)

4/5 92% Stan & Ollie (2018) Sure, it is emotive and knows which muscles to flex at various points, but it isn't soupy. It is simply a lovely, unscandalous tale about two people who needed each other very much.‐ The Sun (UK)

4/5 87% Colette (2018) It is funnier than you might expect and a timely look at prejudice and the creative process.‐ The Sun (UK)

5/5 93% The Favourite (2018) I couldn't fault a single thing, it's seriously good fun.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 31% Welcome to Marwen (2018) It's touching, funny and tragic and much like Tom Hanks as Gump or Michael J Fox as McFly, Zemeckis struck gold here with Carell - who can't do much wrong at the moment.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 62% Bird Box (2018) I really enjoyed it for all its tense, gory, eerie, if not entirely original tropes.‐ The Sun (UK)

5/5 78% Mary Poppins Returns (2018) Splendid stuff.‐ The Sun (UK)

5/5 96% Roma (2018) If you don't allow yourself 135 minutes this weekend to soak it in, we can't be friends.‐ The Sun (UK)

3/5 26% Mortal Engines (2018) Part buddy movie, part origin, part legend setting - Mortal Engines has a lot to like about it, but Jeepers it really packs far too much in.‐ The Sun (UK)

2/5 64% Aquaman (2018) People will be very cross that I don't "get" what was trying to be done, or that I didn't catch the comic references - but you know what? Get in the sea.‐ The Sun (UK)

5/5 97% Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) Excelsior!‐ The Sun (UK)

4/5 92% The Old Man & the Gun (2018) The casting is so good it's almost rude...‐ The Sun (UK)

4/5 83% Creed II (2018) I bloody LOVED it. It hit every beat, tugged every string and left me feeling 12 again.‐ The Sun (UK)

4/5 88% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) First and foremost it's great fun, secondly it offers pretty strong feminist role models...‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2018
4/5 84% Disobedience (2018) I loved it - gripping, heartbreaking, very sexy and the two leads have electric chemistry.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2018
4/5 73% Assassination Nation (2018) It is brutal, angry, abrasive, brash, sexy, grotesque and deeply troubling - perfectly judging the mood of young women around the world.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 23, 2018
4/5 40% The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018) Treat this as a female Bourne/Ethan Hunt and you will have a great time.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 23, 2018
3/5 64% Suspiria (2018) Grotesque and problematic, but gets the thumbs up.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2018
4/5 92% The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) Not all the chapters work as well as some, but as an entire 'being', it's deeply enjoyable.‐ The Sun (UK)

1/5 11% Siberia (2018) This is appalling.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2018
3/5 70% Bleed For This (2016) As a classic boxing film, it's a carbon copy, but a very satisfying 12-rounder, just losing on points.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2018
3/5 58% The Grinch (2018) It's perfectly well made, with all the tricks, bits for the older audience and emotional touch-points we all now expect from an animation, but does tend to lose some of the spitefulness and quirks along the way.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2018
4/5 94% Wildlife (2018) An assured debut from Dano and a genuinely heartbreaking portrayal of regret from Carey Mulligan with a final scene that will break your heart.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2018
4/5 81% Overlord (2018) It's like a panel of Wolfenstein and Call of Duty: Nazi Zombie players were given $40 million and told to make a B-Movie horror. It's nuts, and quite brilliant.‐ The Sun (UK)

5/5 91% Widows (2018) You'll be hard pushed to find better this year. Wonderful stuff.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2018
3/5 38% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) It looks glorious and comes tantalisingly close to some groundbreaking storylines... but you've got to have your wits about you to keep up.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 8, 2018
3/5 65% Peterloo (2019) It's certainly ambitious for Leigh and there's no doubting that the final act is one of the most unflinching, brutal and upsetting scenes of injustice you'll see...‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2018
4/5 92% Mirai (2018) It reflects our worries and love of family directly back at us, in vivid, trippy and beautiful form.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2018
3/5 62% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) I enjoyed it, but this isn't much real life, it's more fantasy.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2018
3/5 79% 22 July (2018) It's done as thoroughly and as sensitively as you would imagine - yet I couldn't tell whether this was either too soon, or gave too much credence to the manifesto and questionings of a far-right lunatic.‐ The Sun (UK)

4/5 81% Fahrenheit 11/9 (2018) This is an important film for future voters worldwide. Just hope they watch.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2018
3/5 79% Halloween (2018) What follows is basically a generic horror/slasher plot, supercharged to above average by a nifty performance from a wonderfully grizzled and grey Jamie Lee-Curtis.‐ The Sun (UK)

4/5 74% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) I was gripped throughout and had a bloody great time.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2018
4/5 88% First Man (2018) The brevity and heartbeat of the film is left to Claire Foy as Janet, his wife. She is superb.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2018
2/5 35% Johnny English Strikes Again (2018) Aside from a couple of set-pieces in which Atkinson is allowed to be Mr Bean in a tux, this is misjudged and simply not funny enough.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2018
2/5 29% Venom (2018) No one comes out of this looking good.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2018
5/5 90% A Star Is Born (2018) I can't recommend this film enough and can't imagine anyone not being bowled over by it.‐ The Sun (UK)

5/5 84% The Wife (2018) Easily one of my favourite dramas of the year. I was enthralled to the very last second.‐ The Sun (UK)

2/5 14% Dusty and Me (2016) It comes from a good place but what it makes up for in heart, it distinctly lacks in watchability.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2018
3/5 77% Black '47 (2018) A taut, often violent drama with a powerhouse of a cast - Barry Keoghan, Jim Broadbent and Stephen Rea to name a few.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2018
4/5 85% A Simple Favor (2018) As a thriller it's a bit of a dud - but as a sexy, crude, swaggering comedy (much like the 4pm martini) it really hits the spot.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2018
3/5 64% The Little Stranger (2018) Ruth Wilson saves the day with another astounding performance - backed up by a deliciously chilling Charlotte Rampling.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2018
4/5 66% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) A sometimes average film elevated above and beyond by its leads.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2018
2/5 32% The Predator (2018) Whole swathes of the film make zero sense, scenes feel completely disconnected and whilst it's certainly not as bad as you expect, it's nowhere near as good as you'd hope.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
2/5 31% King of Thieves (2019) A real missed opportunity.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
4/5 91% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Watch this film, fall in love - and buy a handful of scratch cards on the way home.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
3/5 72% Final Score (2018) Final Score offers nothing in the way of originality or social commentary - it's just a big, fun, brash, noisy action flick headed by someone eyeing up The Rock from a distance - and more power to it's elbow.‐ The Sun (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
2/5 83% Hurricane (2018) I enjoyed the performances from Iwan Rheon and Stefanie Martini, but extraordinarily clunky CGI and the reliance on the old "I'll translate this crazy Englishman as saying something humorous" got tiring quite quickly.‐ The Sun (UK)
