Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
92% The Greasy Strangler (2016) "A ready-made cult classic just begging to slay the midnight crowd. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jan 27, 2016
3/5 60% Sisters (2015) "Laugh-out-loud in places. Frustratingly flat in others. Sporadic giggles guaranteed. Fey and Poehler's comic chemistry is undeniable; shame the script didn't get a Liz Lemon rewrite. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Dec 11, 2015
3/5 71% Crimson Peak (2015) "Del Toro's artistry is definitely something to celebrate, but there's one thing about Crimson Peak that's unforgivable - it's just not scary. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Oct 15, 2015
3/5 85% The Walk (2015) "For all the 3D showboating, it's a touching tribute to the Twin Towers. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 27, 2015
3/5 67% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) "While it lacks a memorable villain, and the central pairing fizzes but never sparks, the film gets by on its vintage charm and a third act upswing - and, for all its messiness, it'd be a shame not to see Solo and Kuryakin rutting horns again. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Aug 11, 2015
3/5 33% Tatau: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "While Tatau's far lighter in tone than its supernatural BBC3 predecessors, it's still a fun, fast-paced romp. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Apr 13, 2015
3/5 43% Effie Gray (2015) "The result is dark and offbeat, but as a murky anti-romance, Gray is undeniably effective. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Oct 6, 2014
4/5 95% Ghost in the Shell (1996) "It's that rare example of spectacle and substance meshing beautifully. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Sep 28, 2014
3/5 100% Looking for Light: Jane Bown (2014) "This gentle, no-frills doc eschews music to let the images do the talking - Bown's striking snaps are the real stars. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Apr 21, 2014
3/5 82% G.B.F. (2014) "A colourful, hyperactive romp that, despite attempting to bust apart teen-flick clichés, quickly conforms to type. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Mar 17, 2014
2/5 33% Back to the Garden "The pace picks up towards the end, but whether you'll still care by that point is another matter. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Mar 10, 2014
4/5 79% Lamb Of God's As The Palaces Burn (2014) "As The Palaces Burn ends up as gripping and unexpectedly moving as anything John Grisham's ever scribbled. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Feb 24, 2014
3/5 89% Frozen (2013) "Not quite up there with Tangled, but a solid addition to the canon. Catchy tunes will have you humming, but the hunt for the next The Little Mermaid continues... " ‐ Total Film
Posted Dec 2, 2013
2/5 No Score Yet Rough Cut "An experiment in form from artist-turned-director Jamie Shovlin, Rough Cut has points of interest, but ultimately feels pointless. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Dec 2, 2013
3/5 69% Powder Room "First-time director MJ Delaney mixes style with big laughs, and though the film stumbles over the occasional am-dram bum note, Smith balances it all out as the likeable girl next-door. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Dec 2, 2013
4/5 98% How to Train Your Dragon (2010) "A soaring, roaring triumph when it comes to head-spinning visuals, How To Train Your Dragon keeps things simple. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Nov 19, 2013
3/5 75% La religieuse (The Nun) (2015) "Though Etienne and Huppert are fantastic, Guillaume Nicloux's adaptation of Denis Diderot's novel is neither nunsploitation nor chamber piece, just about working as a sermon on hypocrisy. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Oct 28, 2013
2/5 33% Not Another Happy Ending (2013) "McKay's film often feels like Richard Curtis-lite for the New Girl generation - minus the jokes and memorable characters. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Oct 8, 2013
1/5 0% It's A Lot "It's A Lot is filled with good intentions but, sadly, is just fatally unfunny. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Aug 12, 2013
3/5 61% The Frozen Ground (2013) "It's handsomely lensed, and when Cage and Cusack finally go nose-to- nose, the fur does fly. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 9, 2013
2/5 82% Eden (2013) "Director Megan Griffiths wastes a great villain and settles for easy answers in a watchable but by-numbers thriller. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 9, 2013
4/5 75% Out in the Dark (2013) "By turns dynamic, dangerous and bursting with passion, Out In The Dark is a stark, swoonsome romantic drama. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 3, 2013
3/5 73% Despicable Me 2 (2013) "A pale imitation of its fresh and frisky predecessor. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jun 25, 2013
3/5 70% I Want Your Love "Graphic, gritty and uncompromising, it explores love through the act of sex - an admirable experiment. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jun 17, 2013
3/5 64% Epic (2013) "This is big on action and small on originality. Gorgeous visuals aside, Epic is resolutely kiddie fare. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 21, 2013
2/5 29% G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) "Everything in Retaliation is calibrated to snare a 13-year-old's attention span and the story, such as it is, acts as little more than a limp washing line on which to peg those incendiary set-pieces. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Mar 25, 2013
2/5 0% The Fall Of The Essex Boys "Despite decent performances, what follows is an unfocused shambles that Nevern's shouty voiceover desperately attempts to make sense of. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Feb 4, 2013
2/5 15% Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013) "Hammy, boring, chronically unfunny - there'll be nightmares before bedtime. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Feb 4, 2013
1/5 4% Movie 43 (2013) "Squandering a gold-star cast and as tasteless as a foam dog poo, Movie 43 deserves not one of your hard-earned pennies. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jan 25, 2013
3/5 54% I Give It a Year (2013) "A gag-filled chuckler with talent to spare. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jan 21, 2013
3/5 73% Rise of the Guardians (2012) "So full of yuletide razzmatazz that only true Scrooges will have trouble stomaching it. If only Santa's workshop had given the script more of a tinker... " ‐ Total Film
Posted Nov 23, 2012
4/5 85% Happy, Happy (2011) "Sweet but never saccharine, Happy Happy is as delicate as Kaja and just as endearing. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Nov 15, 2012
3/5 56% For a Good Time, Call... (2012) "For A Good Time delivers, yes, exactly that. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Oct 29, 2012
3/5 31% The Dinosaur Project (2012) "The found-footage hook is starting to feel pretty ancient, and the human drama is patchy at best, but Dinosaur Project is entertainingly silly. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 31, 2012
3/5 63% In The Dark Half "Part kitchen sink-er, part pseudo-ghost story, this has a firm grasp on the genres it casually straddles, with creepy sound design fostering a dreamy, portentous mood. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 31, 2012
3/5 67% God Bless America (2012) "It's the kind of cuckoo premise that director Bobcat Goldthwait (World's Greatest Dad) excels at... " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jun 28, 2012
3/5 90% La fée (The Fairy) (2012) "Not all of the jokes land perfectly (a late telephone gag treads too much water), but The Fairy remains infectiously funny throughout. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jun 19, 2012
3/5 49% Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) "A visually inventive, deliciously dark fairytale reheat. The story's far from the stuff of legend, but Theron makes for a ferocious meanie, helping to flush away Mirror Mirror's sugary aftertaste. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 28, 2012
3/5 79% Ill Manors "Wringing tortured turns from a cast of unknowns, Drew has things to say - and he mostly says them well. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 10, 2012
4/5 97% Monsieur Lazhar (2012) "A timely examination of violence in our society through the eyes of those who can't control it. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted May 3, 2012
3/5 31% Man on a Ledge (2012) "A joyfully silly thriller that won't win any awards for subtlety, but it already knows that. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Feb 3, 2012
3/5 69% Wuthering Heights (2012) "A gutsy if not entirely successful interpretation of Brontë's tome. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Nov 4, 2011
2/5 29% Machine Gun Preacher (2011) "Overly preachy and overly long. A missed opportunity. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Nov 2, 2011
3/5 27% Colombiana (2011) "Colombiana wants to be Bourne with boobs, but its connect-the-dots narrative and silted script means it can't quite reach those bone-crunching heights. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Sep 8, 2011
4/5 92% Incendies (2011) "Elemental and expertly directed, Nawal's story haunts long after the credits have rolled. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Jun 23, 2011
4/5 89% The Messenger (2009) "Stumbles a little, loosening its grip in the bromantic final stretch. But if impenitent heartstring pluckage is what you're after, this is where it's at. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Jun 16, 2011
3/5 83% Les aventures extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec (The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec) (2010) "Flagrantly silly, but also disarmingly feather-light and charming. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Apr 21, 2011
4/5 79% Fair Game (2010) "Watts and Penn are first rate as a married couple divided by their desperation to do right, while stylistically it's top notch. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Mar 10, 2011
2/5 9% Chatroom (2011) "In the end, Nakata's notion of a web gone wild has moments of visual merit, but is a little too clinical and coldly cynical. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Dec 22, 2010
2/5 27% Charlie St. Cloud (2010) "Efron excels, proving he's leading-man material. But sign-post scoring and drill-'em-home emotional beats weigh things down. Rubbish ending, too." ‐ Little White Lies
