T-Meter Title | Year
4/5 No Score Yet Balloon (2018) German critics are divided with some saying it is too near the knuckle in times of political turmoil regarding reunification and immigration - but to this critic (admittedly ignorant about such things), I found it to be incredible tense and watchable. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

2/5 24% Men in Black International (2019) The plot is cumbersome, clunky and obvious - and the two leads aren't given nearly enough freedom to explore any potential chemistry. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 57% The Hummingbird Project (2019) I found the film funny, twisty and exciting enough to keep me watching, eager to find out of their mad caper would work in time. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

5/5 100% Toy Story 4 (2019) I don't think anything can surpass Toy Story 3 for emotional heft (If it didn't break you, you aren't human) so 4 wisely doesn't try. It makes up for it with laughs - lots of laughs. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 73% Liam: As It Was (2019) Borderline parody? Possibly - but Liam's charm makes this quite irresistible. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 80% Late Night (2019) Tackles the misogyny and sexism in the world of TV comedy by facing it head on and putting a woman at the top of the throne - a precarious one, but a throne nonetheless. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

1/5 23% Dark Phoenix (2019) Talk about limping to the finish line. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 40% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) It's a satisfactory film, if it does already feel a little dated. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 57% The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019) You know what, this a perfectly fine film which suffers from too many storylines. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

5/5 97% Booksmart (2019) I honestly couldn't fault this film and want to see it again immediately. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 97% Pick of the Litter (2018) This has been scientifically created to appeal to every person on the planet. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 96% Beats (2019) The performances are awesome and capture that small window of transition from young adult to jumping aboard the grown-ups' career train. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 89% John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019) I can't imagine anyone going to see this not knowing what kind of thing to expect - so therefore I can't imagine anyone not having the time of their lives. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 66% Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) Reynolds has been afforded just the right amount of freedom to goof off in the recording booth (a lot sounds improvised) and is easily the best thing about the film. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 89% Arctic (2019) The plot is far more well trodden than the ground it films, but this very stoic Nordic tale of resilience, and endurance is a treat. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 83% High Life (2019) It is at times a brutal watch, with scenes of extreme sexual violence that do not hold back in the slightest - but in a rarity for modern cinema, are only there to serve the story. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 81% Long Shot (2019) For someone who hates rom-coms, I bloomin' loved this. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 62% Vox Lux (2018) Vox Lux did its best to put me off it, but failed. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 55% Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) Efron does well to throw aside his beefcake pinup image and brings a creepy edge to the whole film - which is tricky when we already know he's guilty. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

2/5 48% Bel Canto (2018) I... spent most of the film chuckling in all the wrong places. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 75% Pond Life (2018) Some good performances let down a bit by the watered down story, which never really worked out what it wanted to say. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

5/5 99% Eighth Grade (2018) Unmissable piece of art. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) The end of an era, done exactly as you'd hoped. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 60% Greta (2019) For every scene in which we surrender to our early 90's "Single White Female" or "Deceived" deification, there are a dozen tediums and plot-hole implausibilities waiting to smack you round the chops. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

1/5 73% Dragged Across Concrete (2019) It's uncompromising and unapologetically unpleasant, but it's also mediocre, boring and tries far too hard to be controversial. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2019
3/5 86% The Sisters Brothers (2018) A more thoughtful Western than we're used to - still looking dusty and beautiful, but with fewer cliches and not much real resolution, which won't be to everyone's taste - but I enjoyed my time with it. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 89% Missing Link (2019) Galifianakis in particular carries the film with his "between Two Ferns" schtick. His tone of voice and delivery suits his character perfectly and reminds me of the first time I saw Shrek. It's the same vibe - namely bloody good. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

2/5 57% Pet Sematary (2019) It's an MTV horror film - too reliant on jump scares with not enough evil. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 90% Shazam! (2019) The hero we need at the moment. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

36% Out of Blue (2019) A film can be really bad - that's fine and often fun. Brilliant actors can give bad performances and that's normal. But what is inexcusable is being boring. What is the point in offering nothing? - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 96% Being Frank: The Chris Sievey Story (2019) It is worth taking a look at the man behind the mask. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 47% Dumbo (2019) Not a disaster by any stretch, but not as joyous or fulfilling as I was hoping. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

5/5 100% Minding the Gap (2018) We all have, at some point, had a group of friends that have acted like a surrogate family when our actual family is failing us. This film reminds us of how vital that network is and how lost most children are. Brilliant. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

2/5 67% The White Crow (2019) Whilst the dancing is extraordinary and the final 20 minutes, where he decides to defect at the airport, are gripping and tense - I first had to wait 100 that I won't get back. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

5/5 94% Us (2019) With his latest movie, Peele has created the first conscientious horror genre. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

1/5 44% The Prodigy (2019) One to watch when there's no decent comedy left on Netflix. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 82% Ben is Back (2018) I enjoyed this, the performances are fantastic - but I preferred it without the drama, if that makes sense. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 92% Benjamin (2018) Colin Morgan glues the whole thing together with an empathetic performance that manages to stop it falling into chaos as it sometimes threatens. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 93% Ray & Liz (2019) Better performances might have been teased from the cast but given this is a debut, Billingham is clearly one to watch. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

5/5 78% Captain Marvel (2019) Thrilling, gripping and spectacular. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 27% The Aftermath (2019) There is a great film to be made here. Sadly, this isn't it. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 93% Fighting with My Family (2019) A British feel-good comedy that is both funny and feels good. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

1/5 19% Serenity (2019) I can't recommend this film at all - or recommend it highly enough. Wonderfully awful. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2019
3/5 73% On the Basis of Sex (2019) A bit of a cliched stomp, but entertaining enough and if it makes more people talk about RBG's achievements and seek out more - then great. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

2/5 69% Cold Pursuit (2019) Think 'Taken' but with Tarantino directing it blindfolded having typed the script wearing boxing gloves. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2019
4/5 90% Capernaum (Capharnaüm) (2018) An important story, powerfully told but problematic at the same time. Worth watching? Definitely. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

3/5 89% The Kid Who Would Be King (2019) While it feels very much a middle act in Joe Cornish's ascending journey, this will please the family just enough and offers the right balance of reality to make it believable. - The Sun (UK) EDIT

4/5 83% Jellyfish (2018) Everything else in this film pales into insignificance when we're faced with one of the best breakout performances I think I've ever seen in Liv Hill. - The Sun (UK) EDIT
