Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 76% Dogman (2018) A daring mix of humour, morality play and extreme violence, it's stunningly composed and just as stunningly acted.‐ Metro (UK)

4/5 No Score Yet VS. (2018) VS gains strength by not trotting out easy Hollywood solutions to complex problems. Nor does it lay on the seaside location too thick. ‐ Metro (UK)

4/5 93% Mandy (2018) Nicolas Cage going postal on screen is now so passé it's become an internet meme but the actor has finally met his match with Mandy, a grindhouse movie even more bat-poop bananas than he is.‐ Metro (UK)

5/5 88% First Man (2018) A remarkable feat only a great actor can pull off.‐ Metro (UK)

4/5 No Score Yet Female Human Animal (2018) What sounds tiresomely pretentious proves darkly fascinating and surprisingly funny. A release quite unlike any other, this is a choice morsel for culture vultures.‐ Metro (UK)

2/5 38% Johnny English Strikes Again (2018) Kids may still giggle at Atkinson's well-practised buffoonery but his creaky character might want to consider permanent retirement after this one.‐ Metro (UK)

5/5 90% A Star Is Born (2018) [Gag's] enchanting to watch, while the chemistry between her and Cooper is mesmerising. You'll fall in love with them falling in love and that goes a long way in carrying you through the movie's slightly sketchier second half.‐ Metro (UK)

4/5 100% Two for Joy (2018) Sensitively realised and soundscaped, there's an almost unbearable tension surrounding these damaged, volatile characters who encounter danger at every turn - mainly from themselves.‐ Metro (UK)

4/5 89% Skate Kitchen (2018) Authentic and dreamily shot - yet smartly edited - Skate Kitchen is the kind of movie you feel infinitely more hip just for watching.‐ Metro (UK)

5/5 85% The Wife (2018) Director Björn Runge's stark palate contrasts with the pleasingly juicy story, but it's Close's remarkable performance that makes this drama shine. ‐ Metro (UK)

1/5 25% Mile 22 (2018) What the heck is going on? Why the heck am I still watching this? These will be your two dominant thoughts while enduring this preposterously violent action nonsense.‐ Metro (UK)

3/5 65% The Little Stranger (2018) The house itself is realised with terrific creepiness and claustrophobia but ultimately its cupboards feel bare.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2018
4/5 85% A Simple Favor (2018) While Feig's neo-noir soap opera fizzes with comedy camp, Jessica Sharzer's script is spiked with acid wit and chilling nastiness.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2018
4/5 98% Lucky (2017) Sounds grim but character actor John Carroll Lynch's directorial debut is a wonderful and warm meditation on mortality.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2018
2/5 29% The King of Thieves (2018) A sad waste of gold-plated talent.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2018
4/5 92% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Above all, it's got that romcom magic. Like any of the best real-life weddings, it makes you simultaneously laugh and cry and go 'awww!' in the kissy bits. Suffering from post-summer holiday blues? Consider them banished.‐ Metro (UK)

4/5 85% Under the Wire (2018) Essential viewing. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2018
4/5 86% The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) The sharp, irreverent humour recalls the tone of fellow YA hit The Fault In Our Stars and the script steers away from broad strokes or predictable beats.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2018
2/5 22% The Happytime Murders (2018) With multiple scenes of drug-snorting and depraved puppet sex, including an admittedly hilariously drawn-out ejaculation scene...it's worth emphasising that this is definitely not one for the kiddies. ‐ Times (UK)

2/5 14% Action Point (2018) It's quickly clear, however, that Knoxville (now aged 47) actually built this movie for nostalgic middle-aged men like himself. ‐ Times (UK)

90% Cold War (Zimna wojna) (2018) At an intense 88 minutes, it's truly all killer, no filler. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2018
4/5 93% Searching (2018) Twist upon twist is daringly and entertainingly contrived by exciting debut director Aneesh Chaganty,.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2018
2/5 53% Bad Samaritan (2018) The debut director Dean Devlin clearly has Hitchcockian pretensions, even if the sleazy thrills he offers lunge closer towards torture porn. ‐ Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2018
2/5 No Score Yet One Note at a Time (2016) Shot over a decade, it's clearly a passion project for the English film-maker Renee Edwards, who unearths some terrific grassroots characters, then feels unsure what to do with them.‐ Times (UK)

4/5 69% The Children Act (2018) [Emma] Thompson deserves another best actress nomination and you will want to marry Stanley Tucci.‐ Metro (UK)

4/5 72% Christopher Robin (2018) The script throws out some utterly disarming one-liners and the animation is entirely enchanting.‐ Metro (UK)

2/5 17% The Darkest Minds (2018) Unless you're a glutton for dystopian teen anguish, I'd skip it.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2018
2/5 60% Dog Days (2018) It's the screenwriting equivalent of buying a student essay off the internet.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2018
3/5 83% Beirut (2018) It's Hamm's world-weary charisma that locks you in. The Negotiator proves he's got the A-list chops to join the big boys.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2018
4/5 100% El mar la mar (2018) A timely artwork that captures that desperate life and death pilgrimage across the Sonoran Desert like no other. ‐ Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 6, 2018
3/5 91% Hearts Beat Loud (2018) Offerman puts in a subtle turn beneath his humongous ageing-hipster beard and Clemons is deliciously natural as the exasperated Sam.‐ Times (UK)

2/5 14% Damascus Cover (2018) The persuasive use of real locations only underlines the frustrating sketchiness when it comes to exploring the potentially fascinating intricacies of Israeli-Syrian power play. ‐ Times (UK)

1/5 13% Viking Destiny (Of Gods and Warriors) (2018) This low-budget Viking drama is an undistinguished effort even within its undistinguished historic/action subgenre. ‐ Times (UK)

4/5 95% Maurice (1987) This elegant, heart-rending romance is now ripe for the reclaiming as a gay landmark.‐ Times (UK)

3/5 56% Detective Dee: The Four Heavenly Kings (Di Renjie zhi Sidatianwang) (2018) The film's visual imagination is boggling and exhilaratingly strange. ‐ Times (UK)

2/5 No Score Yet The Giant Pear (Den utrolige historie om den kæmpestore pære) (2017) As computer animation goes, The Giant Pear proves seriously small potatoes.‐ Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2018
3/5 59% Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) Genndy Tartakovsky's artistry is best when at its goofiest - you wish he'd go full steam ahead on the silliness. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2018
4/5 100% Apostasy (2017) As well as deeply committed performances, Apostasy benefits from being told by a genuine ex-Jehovah's Witness. Debut writer/director Daniel Kokotajlo authentically embeds you within a claustrophobic world of absolute belief.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2018
4/5 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Topping this will be the toughest Mission: Impossible ever. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2018
1/5 10% Escape Plan 2: Hades (2018) The plot, as incomprehensible as it is uninvolving, has Stallone's utterly unmemorable crack prison-break team banged up in yet another off-the-grid illegal jail called Hades.‐ Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2018
80% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) Perhaps it was too much to expect lightning to strike twice. This sequel is OK, it's just not loads of fun. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2018
5/5 93% First Reformed (2018) First Reformed is a tough, masterful movie. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2018
2/5 40% Mary Shelley (2018) The story is all blood, sex, lust, love and death but director Haifaa al-Mansour's period drama is just too pretty and polite.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2018
3/5 44% Swimming with Men (2018) Most of the beats are predictable... What gives it depth is that it's loosely based on a true story‐ Metro (UK)

4/5 88% Whitney (2018) The result is haunting and revelatory.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2018
3/5 71% Adrift (2018) It's a mildly gruelling watch that leaves you both inspired by Tami's real-life resilient spirit of adventure and will to live, and boggled as to why anyone would be crazy enough to set out across such a watery wilderness in the first place.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2018
3/5 63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) The problem with such wall-to-wall shadiness is that you're increasingly left in the dark over character motivation. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2018
4/5 77% In the Fade (Aus dem Nichts) (2017) It's one of the performances of [Diane Kruger's] career.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2018
2/5 51% Freak Show (2018) Billy's schoolmates are either implausible (the jock who quotes Oscar Wilde) or one-dimensional (Abigail Breslin's Trump-ite cheerleader who insists 'all gays are going to hell'), though Laverne Cox lights up the screen with a fleeting cameo.‐ Metro (UK)

3/5 68% Ocean's 8 (2018) A slight but slick heist caper with a blinging all-star female cast ‐ Metro (UK)
