T-Meter Title | Year
2/5 46% To The Wonder (2013) Dialogue is reduced to impressionistic snatches and self-consciously poetic voice-over; the impressive cast have nothing much to do but exchange meaningful looks through windblown hair. - The Skinny EDIT

4/5 93% Ninja Scroll (1995) What dazzles most is the contrast between the beautifully rendered, pastoral backdrops of crags, waterfalls, forests, and temples, and the gruesome, stylized violence that takes place against them. - The Skinny EDIT

2/5 46% Air Doll (Kûki ningyô) (2009) Hirokazu's meandering, diffuse storytelling leaves the film feeling even longer than its near two hour running time, and it becomes difficult not to hope for the appearance of sharp objects just to introduce an element of suspense. - The Skinny EDIT

3/5 87% Margin Call (2011) At times, the film becomes just a series of static, over-determined conversations held in lofty offices and gleaming toilets. - The Skinny EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet The Burma Conspiracy (Largo Winch (Tome 2)) (2011) It suffers from the usual underdog flaw of having to try too hard. - The Skinny EDIT

3/5 85% As If I Am Not There (2010) The story is told with a studied spareness. Dialogue and characterisation are minimal, the violence graphic. - The Skinny EDIT

4/5 100% Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949) Shot through with pitch black humour and biting satire on both the moribund upper class and the grasping venality of the suburban middle class. - The Skinny EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Tintin et le mystère de la Toison d'Or (Tintin and the Mystery of the Golden Fleece) (1961) Gets so many details right that it will provoke shivers of recognition in those who know and love the books. - The Skinny EDIT
