T-Meter Title | Year
2/5 25% Breach (2020) Breach is reasonably produced, and much of the cast are clearly having a grand old time. Unfortunately, it's also completely forgettable and never quite succeeds in hitting its stride, confused as it is about its own identity. - Starburst EDIT

4/5 93% Possessor: Uncut (2020) Possessor's visceral violence and vibrant body horror create so great and unsettling a visual impact that its echoes will continue long after the screen goes dark. - Starburst EDIT

2/5 48% The Craft: Legacy (2020) The Craft: Legacy has its heart in the right place, but its shallow execution and lack of daring make it a disappointing watch. - Starburst EDIT

5/5 99% Wolfwalkers (2020) Wolfwalkers is a proud rejection of colonial legacy, an urgent call-to-arms against the continued destruction of our environment, and a truly poignant tale of empathy, understanding and loss. It cannot be missed. - Starburst EDIT

4/5 87% Shirley (2020) The essences of a psycho-sexual thriller, a feminist drama, and a supernatural horror are effectively blended together to create one fiercely subversive study of Shirley Jackson, with truly fantastic performances from Moss and Young. - Starburst EDIT

4/5 70% Tenet (2020) Tenet is technically excellent and challenging, pushing boundaries and subverting expectations with the director's usual elegance. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 80% Jojo Rabbit (2019) Presenting the story through a child's eyes makes for the perfect canvas on which to effectively blend goofy humour with a chilling recognition of true horrors, and moments of tenderness and deep sincerity. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 95% A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) As warm and feel-good as Beautiful Day might be, it is also very open about the fact that not only is empathy necessary, it's also something that's difficult and must actively be worked at... That's the kind of story worth seeing. - Starburst EDIT

10/10 97% Knives Out (2019) A renowned narrative format honoured yet subverted, a plot that is intelligent but not smug, an all-star cast that is perfectly balanced, giving performances that range from venomous to vulnerable yet are all rip-roaringly funny. - Starburst EDIT

3/10 71% The King (2019) The King is a 140-minute self-serious slog with decent set pieces, a great slate of actors playing poorly written characters, and possessing little to fill an empty shell of a screenplay. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 92% Monos (2019) Monos is stunning and terrifying, a dream collapsing into a nightmare. It is so unstable and so alive that by the end, the audience is shaken and exhausted, but secure in the fact they have experienced something truly unique and cinematic. - Starburst EDIT

10/10 90% The Lighthouse (2019) The Lighthouse is guaranteed to be unlike anything you've seen before. - Starburst EDIT

9/10 88% Ready or Not (2019) Ready or Not is dark in a way that's thrilling as opposed to oppressive, a couple of narrative twists ensure the stakes stay high, it's as campy as it gets, and every performance is captivating. - Starburst EDIT

10/10 68% Joker (2019) Todd Phillips' Joker is deeply unsettling. It's a film which follows you home at night, insidious and nightmarish - Starburst EDIT

7/10 83% Ad Astra (2019) Ad Astra stays far too close to Earth, and that's to its detriment. - Starburst EDIT

6/10 65% Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion (Astérix - Le secret de la potion magique) (2018) It's a simple premise and execution, the colours are bright, the familiarity of the characters is warming despite the jarring American accents, and it's all breezy fun. - Starburst EDIT
