Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 83% Oasis: Supersonic (2016) Marvelling at how five council-estate lads rocketed to superstardom in three years, the doc is so stuffed it almost (almost...) justifies ignoring Oasis' slump into trad-rock torpor.‐ Total Film

4/5 93% Janis: Little Girl Blue (2015) [Little Girl Blue shows] how Joplin revelled in her stage persona yet struggled with life: a recipe for triumph then tragedy, here given its punchy and desperately poignant due.‐ Total Film

53% On the Road (2016) An engaging, eye-opening blend of sweaty mosh-pits, backstage bonding and between-gigs drift makes for a distinctly on-the-hoof portrait of a once-only moment in a fast-rising band's upwards curve.‐ Screen International

4/5 83% Oasis: Supersonic (2016) Whether you're Team Liam or Team Noel, Whitecross's film does what good retrospective rock-docs should: makes a seismic moment for rock's history books roar with raucously entertaining life again.‐ The List

4/5 96% Little Men (2016) Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Ehle and Paulina García nail flawed adulthood, though young leads Theo Taplitz and Michael Barbieri steal the show.‐ Total Film

4/5 85% The Girl With All the Gifts (2017) Tender, terrifying, ingenious, and intense. Nanua stands out amid crack casting: gifted, indeed.‐ Total Film

4/5 97% Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) Warm, witty, and occasionally wild, Waititi's bush-bonding romp is a kind, generous-spirited winner.‐ Total Film

2/5 13% 400 Days (2016) If a mystery needs judging by its pay-off, Matt Osterman's low-budget SyFy sci-fi sadly fumbles any early promise.‐ Total Film

3/5 66% Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story) (2016) As the synth score shimmers over the sex binges, any risk of exploitation is offset by explorations of social media, a female POV and bold performances, notably from Marilyn Lima. ‐ Total Film

4/5 97% Cemetery of Splendor (2016) Weerasethakul's radiant images, magical digressions and surprise knob gags keep things fresh and alert, anchored by a sense of sighing sorrow for personal/political traumas.‐ Total Film

4/5 87% Pete's Dragon (2016) Instead of straining to modernise the tale or weaponise the schmaltz, [Lowery] utilises old-school charm and a timeless sense of place.‐ The List

3/5 31% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) It entertains, often relentlessly, yet rains rubble on audience engagement.‐ The List

3/5 28% Warcraft (2016) Despite evident passion for the material, Jones rarely musters the persuasive punch needed to bridge the gaps.‐ The List

3/5 28% Warcraft (2016) Warcraft occasionally manages to feel both rushed and dull, impressively staged and disengaged. True, a few quips in the abyss help to alleviate the lumbering piece. But there aren't enough ...‐ Total Film

4/5 80% Fidelio, Alice's Journey (2015) Even before a snake infiltrates the ship, Borleteau's metaphors aren't subtle, but shes persuasive on the tensions between desire, devotion and duty, and Alice's yearnings rise to the surface with frank complexity.‐ Total Film

4/5 80% Evolution (2016) It'll stick with you, and Hadihalilovic is in total command of her evolution.‐ Total Film

3/5 44% The Angry Birds Movie (2016) Even when the feather-light plot gets into a freeform flap, the trade-off is an energised kind of knowing, anarchic playfulness: the sort that favours spewed-up bird food gags over vomit-inducing homilies.‐ The List

4/5 95% The Jungle Book (2016) Disney's return to the jungle is lovingly executed, emotional and exciting, with eye-boggling effects and fully engaged voice-work. Bears and original Book-lovers can rest at ease.‐ Total Film

4/5 60% High-Rise (2016) Wheatley, Jump, Hiddleston and co occupy Ballard's towering inferno with brazen style. If the plot wobbles precipitously, chalk it up to the high-rise ambition of a genuinely wayward Brit-film one-off.‐ Total Film

4/5 66% The Night Before (2015) Funny, cynical, and warm in all the right ways, this could finally be the Christmas movie for people who hate Christmas movies.‐ Total Film

4/5 82% Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015) If this is a story about half-formed people finding precarious common ground, what's most remarkable is how well-formed these half-formed characters are.‐ Total Film

4/5 88% Dope (2015) Mixing pep and purpose, Dope lands with the punchy immediacy of its title.‐ Total Film

5/5 99% Finding Nemo (2003) A spectacular comedy-adventure that's never less than totally immersive. Not quite the masterpiece that Toy Story was, but it's the closest Pixar have come since.‐ Total Film

4/5 82% Ant-Man (2015) Reed might lack the pop-art pizzazz and unruly ambition Wright might have provided (yes, that's a lot of "mights"...), but he nails the comedy/drama/action balance and slam-dunks the set-pieces.‐ Total Film

4/5 91% Love & Mercy (2015) Love & Mercy is a cine-song of sun-glazed innocence and bruised experience, surfing between excruciating suffering and extraordinary redemption. It makes you cry, but sort of in a good way.‐ Total Film

4/5 95% Amy (2015) With old-school detail, depth and research, Kapadia teases out the human from the headlines until her tragedy guts you.‐ Total Film

2/5 49% San Andreas (2015) Less a Rock-buster than a quake'n'bake reheat of post-Emmerich basics. The cast's likeable work falls right through the script holes.‐ Total Film

4/5 89% A Fuller Life (2014) There's much to celebrate, including Fuller's love for his family. "I wanted my girl to be proud of her daddy," he wrote. In return, she does him proud.‐ Total Film

4/5 98% Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck (2015) A galvanising portrait of a life: not deified, not vilified, but blazingly vivid. And, at 132 minutes, still over too soon.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2015
3/5 80% The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water (2015) What it delivers is what it promises: a battery of deliciously daft, fast-firing, self-mocking, flavour-rich gags, flung with such zest you don't mind if they're disposable.‐ Total Film

4/5 94% Blind (2015) Playful, unpredictable and occasionally pervy, Vogt's directorial debut is a perception-teasing provocation, made slippery with mischief but also accessible by its warm wit and winning lead.‐ Total Film

3/5 74% The Voices (2015) At least Reynolds looks like a man finding his way to take risks once more.‐ Total Film

4/5 91% Catch Me Daddy (2015) Blending the mythical resonances of The Searchers with lyricism and bristly realism, Wolfe's harrowing, haunting dispatch from Brit-cinema's undergrowth is strong meat: emphatic evidence of a bold talent's arrival.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2015
4/5 89% Big Hero 6 (2014) The sweet, witty main pairing focuses a potentially busy, derivative super-group tale.‐ Total Film

4/5 74% Enemy (2014) Jake Gyllenhaal gives not one magnetic, alert yet opaque performance here. He gives two.‐ Total Film

4/5 92% The Case Against 8 (2014) The music busts a gut straining for weepie affect, but you might shed a few yourself when the five-year battle reaches its jubilant, justified climax.‐ Total Film
