Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1/5 0% Head Office (1986) Sadly Reinhold fails to be funny enough to carry the movie and the only sparky moments are down to support characters Don Novello and Richard Masur. ‐ Radio Times

4/5 75% Silkwood (1983) It's a thought-provoking film that asks questions about the safety of the nuclear power industry that are still pertinent. ‐ Radio Times
Posted Mar 4, 2015
2/5 10% I Dreamed of Africa (2000) Given contemporary African issues, the film doesn't ring true or do anything beyond skate over a familiar and all-too melodramatic surface. ‐ Radio Times
Posted Jul 23, 2014
2/5 6% A Smile like Yours (1997) The direction is unfocused and the end result is patchy. ‐ Radio Times
Posted Jul 22, 2014
1/5 14% My Boyfriend's Back (1993) As naff and dreadful as the title suggests. ‐ Radio Times
Posted Jul 15, 2014
1/5 47% Electric Dreams (1984) Shot by director Steve Barron in the style of a pop promo, Electric Dreams starts brightly but ultimately disintegrates. ‐ Radio Times
Posted Apr 1, 2014
5/5 92% Shakespeare in Love (1998) Taking the writing process behind Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet as its inspiration, John Madden's follow-up to Mrs Brown combines contemporary humour with a convincing 16th-century setting. ‐ Radio Times
Posted Feb 11, 2014
4/5 94% About a Boy (2002) Genuinely funny and moving, this is both an endearing examination of masculinity and a challenge to male isolationism. ‐ Radio Times
Posted Feb 10, 2014
5/5 88% American Beauty (1999) British theatre director Sam Mendes made an astonishing film debut with this sublime black comedy about midlife crises. ‐ Radio Times
Posted Jan 28, 2014
3/5 44% To Rome with Love (2012) Baldwin, Cruz and Davis shine in a farce that overstretches itself into bellylaugh hits, but also some satirical misses. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 9, 2012
9/10 82% De rouille et d'os (Rust and Bone) (2012) It is terribly intense, and French. There is no other way to describe it. ‐ Movieline
Posted Sep 7, 2012
6/10 75% Hope Springs (2012) The movie is an unsatisfying combination of touching and excruciating, and a large part of the problem stems from Frankel's attempt to hammer such serious and sensitive subject matter into a half-hearted comedy. ‐ Movieline

91% Crazy Heart (2009) It's not possible to flaw Bridges here. Akin to Falstaff, the detail of his characterisation - from stagger to cough to swagger to song - is fascinating. But he needs more thorough contextualisation to fly.‐ Little White Lies
Posted Feb 19, 2010
56% The Soloist (2009) Wright's major mistake is the flashback to Nathaniel's background. Mundane, TV movie simplistic and, ironically, very middle-class patronising, it causes the film's trajectory to go limp.‐ Little White Lies
Posted Sep 25, 2009
4/5 86% 500 Days of Summer (2009) (500) Days of Summer is a great film - a step in genre and gender development that will be referenced for years to come. And aside from all that, it's really good fun.‐ Little White Lies
Posted Sep 4, 2009
2/5 26% Land of the Lost (2009) Neither conventional action-adventure or enough of an out-there pastiche, this really is the land of the lost.‐ Little White Lies
Posted Jul 31, 2009
72% Sunshine Cleaning (2009) Far from being a tragic grind, Sunshine Cleaning is one long, wonderful irony. It feels like a first film - delicate, fresh and female.‐ Little White Lies
Posted Jul 3, 2009
3/5 76% The Young Victoria (2009) Caught between real quality and heritage for export, the film falls between two disparate stools.‐ Little White Lies
Posted Mar 7, 2009
2/5 67% Revolutionary Road (2008) It leaves you feeling voyeuristically sullied; scrubbing the blood out of your mental carpet, privy to something simultaneously indulgent and inconsequential.‐ Little White Lies
Posted Jan 30, 2009
4/5 73% When Did You Last See Your Father? (2008) A bruising but rewarding experience. ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Oct 5, 2007
2/5 90% Michael Clayton (2007) Think old chewing gum with a masculine flavour. ‐ Little White Lies
