T-Meter Title | Year
3/5 61% Project Power (2020) This bombastic Jamie Foxx action thriller has potential, but is ultimately all fur coat and no knickers. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 100% Perfumes (Les Parfums) (2020) When Harry Met Sally for people old enough to know better.   - The Sun (UK) EDIT

5/5 100% Host (2020) CREATIVITY in lockdown has been underwhelming for most people but thankfully for the film industry there are at least some people with enough impetus to get off their arses and make something great. Host is exactly that. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 70% Tenet (2020) It's a tense, bewildering assault on the senses. It was never going to live up to all the expectations - but despite the frayed plot and bad script, this is still a film you need to see. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 98% Make Up (2020) It's a well-made, well-performed film evoking some classic British navel-gazing - with maybe one too many pivots for me though. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 83% Proxima (2019) This melancholic, introspective look at space may be a million miles away from Nolan or Kubrick but it really hits the mark. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 48% Unhinged (2020) Crowe excels. He's a real piece of work, comically overweight and genuinely nasty. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2020
4/5 79% How to Build a Girl (2020) It's a great story and Beanie Feldstein as the Caitlin character is one of the best casting moments of the year. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

5/5 98% Parasite (Gisaengchung) (2019) Gripping. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

5/5 91% Clemency (2019) [Woodard] is astounding and this film is deeply moving. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 84% The Way Back (2020) I've always preferred Introspective Affleck to Hollywood Affleck and this reminds us how good he can be. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2020
4/5 79% Greyhound (2020) Ultimately, that describes the film itself - pretty damned good but a near miss from being great. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2020
4/5 81% The Old Guard (2020) This doesn't dig deep enough into any of the characters for us to beg for more but as a stand-alone popcorn thrill, it's more than enough and has some fantastic moments. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

2/5 48% Scoob! (2020) They would get away with it if those pesky kids weren't used to so much better. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2020
5/5 94% A White, White Day (Hvítur, hvítur dagur) (2020) Flitting between cinematic vistas and lingering facial close-ups, the most memorable moments contain no words at all. It's a gorgeous yet unsettling watch. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 4, 2020
97% Hamilton (2020) It is so exquisitely put together and the songs so cleverly crafted, it has you spellbound. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 4, 2020
3/5 41% Irresistible (2020) Written and directed by Jon Stewart... this should have been a lot better than it is. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2020
4/5 97% Carmine Street Guitars (2019) Some documentaries make you angry, others make you change your mind on something you didn't even know you had an opinion on. Others, like Carmine Street Guitars, just fill you with an overwhelming sense of tranquillity and joy. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2020
3/5 92% Days of the Bagnold Summer (2021) An eminently watchable film which makes Bird most definitely one to watch - even when he's behind the camera. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2020
4/5 92% The Vast of Night (2020) It had the whole household spellbound. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 65% Astronaut (2019) Dreyfuss pulls it back from the brink but more oomph is sorely needed. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2020
4/5 90% Moffie (2019) It will be a tough watch for many, but a worthwhile one for all. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2020
3/5 67% Extraction (2020) It is bombastic and vibrant and gives Hemsworth the chance to use a rifle rather than a magic hammer. Alas, the script falls short of the production values. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2020
3/5 71% Trolls World Tour (2020) The kids will spend more time dancing to it than watching, but we'll take that, right? - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2020
3/5 48% Four Kids and It (2020) The kids will love it - and you'll love the 110 mins peace and quiet enjoying this with them. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

5/5 83% Captain Fantastic (2016) - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2020
2/5 37% Spenser Confidential (2020) While this will feel like Citizen Kane by the time the cinemas reopen, it's probably best left for when the teenagers have exhausted every other avenue. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2020
5/5 94% Calm with Horses (The Shadow of Violence) (2020) THIS visceral and compelling crime drama makes you wince at the brutal violence on display - and introduces you to a future megastar. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2020
3/5 85% Misbehaviour (2020) All in all, though, it is a perfectly fun film - with many uncomfortable truths making you wonder how on earth the competition remained as popular as it did for so long. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 73% Escape from Pretoria (2020) My heart is still in my mouth. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2020
3/5 77% Military Wives (2020) Despite the film's familiar heartbeat - and perhaps because I live deep in Surrey Army territory and see first-hand how hard it is for the families of soldiers - this film really struck a chord with me. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2020
3/5 91% The Invisible Man (2020) Despite losing its nerve, there are moments (one in particular) that are genuinely shocking, which just about makes it a worthwhile and unsettling experience. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2020
4/5 38% Downhill (2020) This is more Curb Your Enthusiasm than Elf and it is all the better for it. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2020
4/5 89% Dark Waters (2019) Director Todd Haynes calmly presents one of the most shocking cases of corporate malpractice I'm ashamed to have known nothing about. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2020
3/5 62% The Call of the Wild (2020) It's easy to watch and kids of all ages will love it. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2020
2/5 67% Little Joe (2019) Too much arthouse and not enough entertainment. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2020
4/5 49% Greed (2020) A funny, brash swipe at you-know-who - but it could have sharpened its teeth a little more. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2020
4/5 88% Onward (2020) Despite all the strangeness that brings, it works - in a kind of Weekend at Bernies meets Ghost way. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2020
2/5 66% The Public (2019) Credit to Estevez for making this but it's quite thin, offers no real solutions and has tired characterisations. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2020
4/5 87% Emma. (2020) It's funny, poignant, cutting and very good indeed. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2020
4/5 79% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Too much is crammed into the first hour and often there is far more style than substance. But the last half hour is perfect and it left me wanting more. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2020
5/5 95% A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) This is a film that should have been too twee, schmaltzy and far too sentimental for us cynical Brits. But I found myself completely captivated and drawn in. A really charming, lovely film. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2020
3/5 90% The Lighthouse (2019) Surreal, confusing, funny and shocking, it does not entirely succeed. But there is more than enough here to merit a visit. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2020
1/5 13% The Turning (2020) Utterly ridiculous and not worth your time. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2020
3/5 92% The Personal History of David Copperfield (2020) But this is less Dickens' thinly veiled autobiography and more a brilliant filmmaker having a whole lot of fun with a classic. Bravo. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2020
4/5 84% Waves (2019) If you are a parent, it is heartbreaking - if you are a young adult it is terrifying. But as filmmaking goes, it feels vital. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 23, 2020
5/5 91% Uncut Gems (2019) It is extraordinary and unlike any film I've seen in years. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2020
2/5 36% Seberg (2020) Stewart is the only saving grace in this misfire of a film - she really does own the screen. It's just a shame the makers don't do her, or the legacy of Jean Seberg, justice. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
