Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 91% Sicko (2007) Laughs are thin on the ground, but this is a must-see by a film-maker at the height of his powers. ‐ thelondonpaper
Posted Sep 22, 2009
4/5 71% Les femmes de l'ombre (2008) A war thriller in classic style, with superb central performances which help Female Agents rise above the awful title and keep you hooked from start to gripping finish. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 22, 2009
4/5 84% Rachel Getting Married (2008) Cathartic, uplifting and lacking the earnestness that Hollywood ladles over addiction movies, this beautifully wrought piece is a joy. ‐ thelondonpaper
Posted Jan 23, 2009
2/5 25% Bedtime Stories (2008) Far from another Jumanji, any magic director Shankman tries to inject is squashed by Sandler's distressingly annoying turn, while Russell Brand and Keri Russell look uncomfortably crowbarred in. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 5, 2009
4/5 65% Patti Smith: Dream of Life (2008) Sebring's drifting tone might leave you bemused, but take it as it comes and it's a captivating insight into modern music's godmother. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 5, 2008
2/5 80% Un Secret (A Secret) (2008) Despite strong performances, this is a rigidly uncinematic effort. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 18, 2008
3/5 88% Young@Heart (2007) The devil may have all the best tunes, but it's the elderly who nail them. Charming, heartwarming and totally kick-ass, you'll never look at your grandparents in the same way. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 17, 2008
3/5 59% The Fall (2006) Tarsem's film is breathtakingly imaginative, but at times you're left feeling like you've eaten too many sweets. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 3, 2008
2/5 50% The Fox & the Child (2007) Despite some lovely scenes of foxes doing their thing, the whole affair is ruined by the interfering and rather annoying humans. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 8, 2008
3/5 68% Irina Palm (2008) There's a heartwarming quality that softens the hardcore setting but this does lack an assured, er, hand. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 13, 2008
4/5 79% Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who! (2008) Charming, funny, with great turns from a juicy cast and the added bonus of minimal finger-wagging. Just stay well clear if you're not in a good place for psychosis-inducing imagery. ‐ Empire Magazine Australasia
Posted Mar 19, 2008
4/5 53% Penelope (2006) The convictions of the cast and an extremely snappy script fill in most of the gaps caused by the wobbly plotlines. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 7, 2008
2/5 31% The Good Night (2007) Despite some wry humour, the miscast leads and sour tone are as out of place in this Woody Allen landscape as Gwyneth's silly wig. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 18, 2008
3/5 79% He Was a Quiet Man (2007) An enjoyable satire is let down by a third act that juggles too many ideas for its own good. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 7, 2007
3/5 68% The Magic Flute (2006) Although Branagh has done a good job of toning down the opera's more ridiculous elements, what remains will test even the most willing opera virgin. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Nov 28, 2007
4/5 43% Lagerfeld Confidential (2007) The designer's droll wit makes this a compelling (if bitchy) documentary. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 24, 2007
2/5 9% Bratz: The Movie (2007) Lessons about friendship and tolerance in this live-action toy story are sidelined in favour of a desire to increase unit sales. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 15, 2007
3/5 29% Sugarhouse (2007) Despite thin caricatures and dodgy dialogue, this still stands out on the street. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 24, 2007
3/5 33% Marigold (2007) The final half hour may lose its way but this remains a sassy and endearing romantic effort. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 17, 2007
3/5 74% Transylvania (2006) Forget the plot and soak up the glorious cinematography. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Aug 10, 2007
4/5 77% The War on Democracy (2007) A brilliantly-researched and sometimes shocking insight into the democratic position of those countries whose dealings with America are more along the lines of slave than political poodle. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 15, 2007
2/5 81% Fong juk (Exiled) (2006) With not enough balls to be fun, and not enough brain to be cerebral, there's not much going on behind those pained Western expressions to entertain. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 15, 2007
3/5 100% The City of Violence (Jjakpae) (2006) Humorous with some decent action sequences. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 8, 2007
2/5 22% Typhoon (2006) Pure action-thriller adventure is ruined with an overly melodramatic second half. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 27, 2007
3/5 57% Special (2006) Genuinely original in parts but this works as a comedy only in places. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 7, 2007
3/5 74% Avenue Montaigne (2006) Accessible and predictable but enjoyable Parisian drama. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 23, 2007
3/5 64% Sixty Six (2006) An entertaining 90 minutes, but more an enjoyable friendly than a world-beating final. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 30, 2006
1/5 61% Something New (2006) Something New isn't just silly, it's an embarrassment to people who are genuinely trying to level the racial playing field in America today. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Nov 30, 2006
1/5 14% Black Christmas (2006) Bad film fans will think Christmas has come early, everyone else should ask for the receipt. ‐ Empire Magazine
