Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 23% Little Ashes (2009) Leaving questions dangling, this isn't the definitive take on Dalí art-lovers may crave. Still, shot on a shoestring, it's nevertheless a lush, involving period drama that proves there are other strings to Pattinson's bow.‐ Total Film

3/5 43% Hannah Montana: The Movie (2009) Fans will love this bright if bland romp, but it lacks that crossover appeal to make it a guilty adult pleasure.‐ Heat Magazine
Posted May 1, 2009
2/5 66% Is Anybody There? (2009) The sum of its gently amusing parts doesn't add up to a film likely to stay long in the heart - or multiplex.‐ Total Film

1/5 40% Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel (2009) An undercooked, rapidly unravelling script, low-grade production values (is that the best future costume you have?), plodding direction and an apologetically crap ending are not worth the price of a cinema ticket in these belt-tightening times.‐ Total Film

4/5 77% The Young Victoria (2009) It swirls with passion and intrigue, with Blunt's sovereign feisty in state matters and charmingly flirtatious with Prince Albert.‐ Heat Magazine
Posted Mar 7, 2009
5/5 98% A Streetcar Named Desire (1951) Simply a masterful adap of Tennessee Williams' sultry, searing play and an affirmation of Marlon Brando's acting genius.‐ Total Film

1/5 44% Live! (2007) This crass, inauthentic mock-doc exposing the evils of reality shows and the venality of TV honchos manages both to bore and insult simultaneously.‐ Total Film

2/5 61% The Duchess (2008) The main event here is frock porn.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2008
3/5 41% 27 Dresses (2008) Something old, something borrowed... but still an assured, perfectly decent popcorn pleaser that sees the limber, likeable Heigl consolidate her Knocked Up lustre. Add sparky his/her chemistry and you've got a well-turned-out chick flick.‐ Total Film

1/5 6% The Accidental Husband (2009) Limp, transparently plotted flight fodder.‐ Total Film

2/5 31% Closing the Ring (2007) Despite boasting cinematic pedigree on-screen and off, Closing The Ring is amateur and predictable - from Peter 'son of Edward' Woodward's clunky soap opera screenplay to unimaginative lensing and ropey SFX.‐ Total Film

3/5 60% Death at a Funeral (2007) A patchy but silly caper that will be dead funny (sorry) for anyone who's recently wrestled with family hysteria. Perfect pre-Christmas fare then.‐ Total Film

2/5 42% No Reservations (2007) With Shine's Scott Hicks at the helm, this is a well-presented dish, but too cloying for discerning palates.‐ Total Film

3/5 56% Vacancy (2007) Vacancy's an audience divider - a predictable yet occasionally classy film. Depending on your mood it's an efficient exercise in popcorn frights, or a cynical B-movie...‐ Total Film

3/5 94% Away From Her (2007) This cautionary tale of making the most of life during our winter months successfully lodges itself into the memory.‐ Total Film

3/5 63% Sleeping Dogs Lie (2006) A bestiality rom-com with unexpected charm. Not quite the dog's bollocks, but certainly no dog's dinner either.‐ Total Film

4/5 76% A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints (2006) A deserved hit at Sundance, Guide plays like Stand By Me crossed with Kids. It's as promising, beautiful and gritty as its onscreen 'saints'.‐ Total Film

4/5 55% The Polar Express (2004) Enchanting, if disconcerting, feel-good fare loaded with predictable, wholesome messages but crammed with enough Christmas wonderment to off-set the saccharine.‐ ViewLondon

1/5 22% Mr. Deeds (2002) When you've already made something as execrable and universally loathed as Little Nicky, why stop there?‐ ViewLondon

3/5 76% My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002) To their credit, Hanks and Wilson stuck to their guns, keeping Vardalos and her ethnicity in a film that is as much a triumph of the underdog and word-of-mouth as it is a box office success.‐ ViewLondon

2/5 46% Return to Never Land (2002) A film lacking the wit, enchantment, and spark of the original -- despite being a shameless copy of it.‐ BBC.com

3/5 14% Crossroads (2002) Spears manages to come across on film as natural, endearing, and extremely likable.‐ BBC.com

3/5 46% Shiner (2001) Opening with some contrived banter, cliches and some loose ends, the screenplay only comes into its own in the second half.‐ BBC.com

3/5 66% Me Without You (2002) Goldbacher effectively explores the love-hate and competitive nature of close female relationships with wit, evocative staging, and a whimsical soundtrack.‐ BBC.com

4/5 44% Rat Race (2001) A genuinely hilarious belly-acher.‐ BBC.com

4/5 59% Serendipity (2001) Wittily scripted, beautifully played by an excellent cast, and just so darned... nice, this is must-see viewing for the romantics.‐ BBC.com

4/5 88% Chasing Amy (1997) Utilises the same sharp - sometimes sick - observational humour and ear for dialogue that made Clerks such an indie gem.‐ BBC.com

3/5 24% Don't Say a Word (2001) A smart script and great casting elevate a pedestrian premise to the status of satisfying thriller.‐ BBC.com

3/5 71% Baby Boy (2001) Johnson and Rhames are superb as Jody's charming, hard-working mother and her ex-con boyfriend Melvin.‐ BBC.com

3/5 63% Crazy/Beautiful (2001) [Dunst's] intelligent, complex performance makes Nicole a charming, frustrating, pathetic, and ballsy protagonist worthy of screen time.‐ BBC.com

4/5 93% Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001) Its off-kilter originality makes a welcome change from the summer's CGI dinosaur or tomb raiding behemoths.‐ BBC.com

5/5 99% L.A. Confidential (1997) Director Curtis Hanson's elegant film is faithful to Ellroy's multi-layered and labyrinthine book, requiring some concentration to keep up with the subtle plot twists and coded dialogue.‐ BBC.com

81% Bridget Jones's Diary (2001) Faithful to its source, perfectly cast and even funnier than the book.‐ Popcorn
