T-Meter Title | Year
1/5 2% One for the Money (2012) In all honesty, this film did not have my attention. I was bored after 10 minutes and I really didn't care what was happening. - She Likes Movies EDIT

3/5 82% Let It Snow (2019) With moments of sweetness, outweighing the blandness of the overall feeling of the film, the little tiny moments of comedy are welcome and actually start to make you enjoy the film despite the very obvious messages it is sending... - She Likes Movies EDIT

4/5 65% Ideal Home (2018) I enjoyed this far more than I thought I would. Very funny and equally frustrating, mostly because of Coogan's character. - She Likes Movies EDIT

4/5 91% Support the Girls (2018) This is also another excellent example of Regina Hall just being brilliant. The more films I see with her in, the better. - She Likes Movies EDIT

4/5 77% Doctor Sleep (2019) With nods to Kubrick's film, this is no nostalgia trip, but more like a last stand. - She Likes Movies EDIT

2/5 27% I Do... Until I Don't (2017) The plot is all over the place and soon loses any connection, with everything being neatly tied up at the end and not really making much sense. - She Likes Movies EDIT

3/5 80% Apostle (2018) A mixture of 'hell is other people' and 'there's something nasty in the woodshed' vibe, I was surprised and honestly, scared. - She Likes Movies EDIT

2/5 41% The Laundromat (2019) The film lacks a direction and instead feels like several different stories that don't quite knit together and because of the subject just left me very angry and dissatisfied. - She Likes Movies EDIT

3/5 100% Shirkers (2018) The fact that everyone knows each other quite well, there is no holding back which gives the film and the story overall an extra added layer of truth despite the main mystery never being told, only speculation is left. - She Likes Movies EDIT

4/5 69% Joker (2019) There are several outstanding moments, a particular favourite of mine being Fleck dressed in a red suit, full make up, dancing on the stairs to THAT song... - She Likes Movies EDIT

3/5 60% Greta (2019) With Isabelle Huppert as Greta, the mystery and charm that surrounds the character is already built into her persona. - She Likes Movies EDIT

4/5 73% The Shiny Shrimps (Les Crevettes Pailletées) (2019) This is a story about friendship and about supporting your team no matter what. - She Likes Movies EDIT

3/5 79% Judy & Punch (2019) Foulkes manages to create just the right atmosphere and tone, despite the film not having a specific date, time or place, with only a variant of period dress and an assortment of accents you'd find around the UK and Ireland. - VultureHound EDIT

4.5/5 89% Brittany Runs a Marathon (2019) Brittany doesn't just run a marathon, she takes on the whole world when she doesn't need to, she goes on a journey of discovery in every aspect of her life to find her true happy self which is inspiring and refreshing in this film climate. - VultureHound EDIT

4/5 49% Tell It to the Bees (2019) At first glance, Annabel Jankel's film... could be written off as any other period romance, but the two leads, Holliday Grainger and Anna Paquin share chemistry and understanding that the film becomes a precious moment in time. - VultureHound EDIT

4/5 73% Assassination Nation (2018) Director Sam Levinson has managed to create a film that is both thought provoking and just straight forward provoking but despite the content warnings, it's not controversial. - VultureHound EDIT

4/5 94% You Don't Nomi (2019) The movie is a powerful and unforgettable example of what film criticism really is and that it's not (just) for the filmmakers. It's for the audience, and that is who the film is aimed at. This one is for the fans. - Zavvi EDIT

87% Deerskin (2020) A twisted comedy about a man and his jacket who go around killing people, for their jackets is curious, to say the least, but what's better is that it's just strange brilliance. - VultureHound EDIT

4/5 100% Our Ladies (2019) The story and characters alone are more than entertaining, as well as the satisfying development of said characters into more than one dimensional stereotypes, as there isn't one in sight. - Zavvi EDIT

88% Bad Education (2019) A brilliantly observed story based on a true story that is refreshingly darkly funny as well as excellently performed. - VultureHound EDIT
