Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 84% The Death of Louis XIV (La mort de Louis XIV) (2017) It is sparse in dialogue, heavy in mood, deliberately avoiding dramatics and sentiment unless it should rise in the viewer.‐ Daily Mail (UK)

3/5 67% Cars 3 (2017) It took only minutes before I was going 'Awwww!' at Lightning's insecurities about growing old and being overtaken by arrogant youngsters (we've all been there).‐ Daily Mail (UK)

4/5 78% The Beguiled (2017) It lulls you into expecting just a delicate, moody social observation. But actually you are in for a sexually charged thriller, with moments of sudden violence and a morally disastrous conclusion.‐ Daily Mail (UK)

3/5 67% Tommy's Honour (2017) It moves through the 1860s and '70s at a measured pace amid the dunes and lowlands, where one match after another sees our heroes - Peter Mullan as old Tommy and Jack Lowden as the son - face triumphs and setbacks.‐ Daily Mail (UK)

4/5 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) For all the CGI-jinks (well up to standard) this is as much a high-school movie as classic superhero stuff.‐ Daily Mail (UK)

2/5 42% Song to Song (2017) Frame to frame, yawn to yawn . . .‐ Daily Mail (UK)

5/5 87% The Midwife (Sage femme) (2017) Provost's film is an altogether beautiful thing, a single vision (writer-director) throbbing with truthful understanding of women, and sorrow, regret, salvation and vegetable gardening.‐ Daily Mail (UK)

4/5 38% The Last Word (2017) The end is moving, but there's acid fun on the way.‐ Daily Mail (UK)

5/5 82% Julieta (2016) A melancholy tapestry of love, passing years, unresolved guilt, family tension and deaths.‐ Daily Mail (UK)

4/5 60% War Dogs (2016) Rather unexpectedly, I loved it. You learn a lot, all pretty unsavoury, about what supplies these overseas American wars, and are unwillingly drawn in to the excitement and risk of business, even while shuddering and snorting with ... laughter.‐ Daily Mail (UK)

3/5 13% Nine Lives (2016) Nine Lives does a favour to us Kevin Spacey fans: who would not approve of having him trapped in the body of a cuddly cat?‐ Daily Mail (UK)

4/5 No Score Yet Kidtoons: Blinky Bill The Movie (2016) The language is pleasingly salty-Aussie - 'shut yer leafhole!' - and the wisdom basic: stick by your mates, even Dads mess up sometimes, and 'always fart downwind'.‐ Daily Mail (UK)

5/5 94% Swallows and Amazons (2017) It is all shocking, and absolutely splendid. The music turns your heart to mush and the performances are flawless, including a cameo from Harry Enfield as the farmer.‐ Daily Mail (UK)
