Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 17% Three and Out (2008) Rare winning moments aside, Three and Out is unconvincing, uneven and unfunny: a severe points failure.‐

3/5 38% Flashbacks of a Fool (2008) Despite the skilful and evocative photography, the strong cast seem to misfire against the imbalanced structure and clashing styles.‐

3/5 76% Paranoid Park (2007) Artily composed, highly subjective and light on plot - it's still a long way from the mainstream, but well-built suspense and an instinctive feel for teen and skate life keep things ticking over until the paranoia peters out.‐

5/5 85% The Sacrifice (1986) A difficult film - slow-paced, unashamedly theatrical and heavily laden with philosophy - yet a profoundly satifying one: a rewarding display of filmmaking mastery that forms a mystical and enigmatic coda to a legendary career.‐

4/5 91% Knallhart (Tough Enough) (2006) Detached, muted colours, a swirling soundtrack and a well-tuned script lend polish to the grimy urban location.‐

3/5 100% The City of Violence (Jjakpae) (2006) There's not much below the surface, and it does take time to get up to speed, but the jovial, high-energy approach and the endless charisma and athleticism of the leads makes for a superior slice of high-kicking entertainment.‐

4/5 69% Lights in the Dusk (2007) It all sounds brutally miserable, but a spry comic flicker, and Koistinen's dim but undying hope keep things surprisingly light, while brilliantly efficient storytelling gives the human tale almost all of the short 77 minutes to unfurl.‐

3/5 82% Days of Glory (2007) Its message is dimmed by a procession of war and race movie clichés that even the excellent cast and epic cinematography cannot revive.‐

2/5 39% Goal II: Living the Dream (2007) Ultimately, this is relegation fodder from start to finish.‐

4/5 62% Them (2007) 77 minutes of gloriously sustained tension.‐

5/5 95% Pan's Labyrinth (2006) Dark, dreamlike and dangerous, Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth is a fairytale every bit as scary and moving as they were always meant to be.‐

4/5 53% The Protector (Tom yum goong) (Warrior King) (2005) Pure, dazzling, entertainment.‐

2/5 25% Chat gim (The Seven Swords) (2005) Battle, romance, mysticism; it sounds great. It isn't.‐

4/5 83% Serenity (2005) A gently intelligent action sci-fi with wit, drama, and emotion to spare, this is the blockbuster you've been waiting for all year.‐

3/5 87% Howl's Moving Castle (2005) Youngsters and Miyazaki fans will coo at the world's depth and rich surreality, but opaque plotting, and a tendency to mope with Sophie whilst Howl is off affecting events let the momentum of the first act vanish into thin air.‐

2/5 57% Last Days (2005) While undeniably beautiful, it carries little more than the obvious voyeuristic appeal.‐

4/5 75% Twin Sisters (2005) Sweeping, stately and accomplished.‐
Read More | Posted May 10, 2005
3/5 47% Three Dancing Slaves (2005) A loving, photographic study of beautiful, bored, alienated masculinity.‐

3/5 12% Ma Mere (2005) The philosophising feels bolted on and the motivations of all the characters soon become simply too alien to comprehend.‐

3/5 90% Duck Season (Temporada de patos) (2006) Despite its tiny canvas, Duck Season soars with all the profundity and inanity of teenage life; the tenderness, the isolation, and the doomed joy of its innocent irresponsibility.‐

3/5 90% Shaolin Soccer (2004) Funny and warm.‐

4/5 92% Super Size Me (2004) A wonderful achievement -- entertaining, engrossing, and never far from grossing out.‐
