Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
96% Rams (Hrútar) (2016) It's a story about sheep, estranged brothers and following rules - or not. The story may be simple, but the sentiments are not - we are fascinated, horrified, amused and greatly moved ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Apr 3, 2016
97% Sherpa (2015) My criticism lies in the fact that Peedom has included every potential controversy instead of concentrating on ... the integral role of the Sherpa and the 360 million dollar tourist industry it enables ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Mar 27, 2016
81% Labyrinth Of Lies (2015) I was extremely moved by this film - the power of the subject matter coupled by the personal nature of the story and accomplished story telling is a welcome surprise ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Mar 27, 2016
27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Operatic and loaded with potential, this overloud, overlong fantasy with mega-stunts fit for the superheroes at its centre is a mess: an onslaught of too much, too often and for too long ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Mar 27, 2016
30% My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016) There is such genuine affection for the characters in this uplifting sequel that we cannot help but be carried along by the craziness, energy and uproarious passion for all things Greek. ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Mar 23, 2016
40% Bling (2016) Romance, popping the question, super heroes and villains are the main ingredients of this upbeat-animated film that offers colour and some chuckles for the younger set ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Mar 19, 2016
87% Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) A happy whirlwind of colour, 3D dazzle and Kung Fu madness, this third film in the panda franchise continues to blossom like its unlikely hero, who learns to become the best he can be, through his journey of self worth and belonging ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Mar 19, 2016
89% A Bigger Splash (2016) Carnal pleasures and temptations are integral to this intriguing psychological drama in which intricately bound relationships reveal darker undertones beneath the frivolity ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Mar 19, 2016
95% Eye In The Sky (2016) The cost of war is the theme of this gripping drone warfare thriller in which protocol, propaganda and consequences play key roles ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Mar 19, 2016
No Score Yet The Will To Fly (2016) Archival footage combined with fascinating interviews with coaches, colleagues and family bring a rounded picture of a young woman whose ambitions fly higher than Olympic gold. ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Mar 14, 2016
83% The Daughter (2017) I was engrossed by the elements and the superb look of the film, yet I felt a little disappointed that it never yields the emotional power that it should. Nonetheless, the cast is terrific ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Mar 12, 2016
37% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) An unadulterated orgy of obscene, puerile humour doused with touches of potentially clever satire as it speeds along in its action-movie guise ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Mar 8, 2016
47% How To Be Single (2016) There's a welcome zany energy about this Sex and the City wannabe, but too many plot strands with characters that have minimal appeal stop the ultimate sizzle ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Feb 22, 2016
96% Son of Saul (2015) Son of Saul is a disturbing film; so intense is the feeling of claustrophobia that at times I felt I could not breathe ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Feb 22, 2016
85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) A burnt out Hollywood Executive, a kidnapped movie star, a tenacious gossip columnist and a study group with communist tendencies are some of the scrumptious characters in this latest Coen Brothers jewel ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Feb 22, 2016
23% Zoolander 2 (2016) In short, the joke is dead, the script is a mess and the film is a tedious embarrassment - despite the divine Penelope Cruz' seductive fashion division Interpol agent and a revolving door of star cameos ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Feb 16, 2016
60% Concussion (2015) The expose of brain damage risks to footballers is powerful stuff, but the film never flies, due to a messy screenplay that loses its focus and awkwardly interweaves an immigrant love story into the mix ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Feb 16, 2016
97% 45 Years (2015) Intimate moments that bind and divide are the focus of this intricate exploration of a long-term marriage, complete with perceptions that are both real and imagined. Charlotte Rampling's subtle performance, rich with nuance is sublime ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Feb 16, 2016
73% Trumbo (2015) With elements that include politics, star power, glamour and money, there is plenty of bite in Trumbo. It's a crackling good tale ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Feb 16, 2016
97% Brooklyn (2015) Superbly told, this engrossing 50s romantic drama captures our imagination in all things - big and small ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Feb 6, 2016
86% Steve Jobs (2015) Aaron Sorkin's brilliant screenplay feels like a hyperactive backstage expose... and if every historic milestone is not crystal clear, the overall impression of the man certainly is. As for Michael Fassbender, he can do no wrong ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Feb 1, 2016
10% Dirty Grandpa (2016) Cringeworthy on every level, this gross-out American Pie comedy for seniors is an all time low for Robert De Niro, who is complicit in the tirade of crude language, expletives, masturbation, simulated sex acts, drug orgies and embarrassing behavior ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jan 23, 2016
43% Looking for Grace (2015) A jigsaw puzzle of insignificant things form the canvass on which Sue Brook's drama about guilt and loss are set... (they) do come together, although some like me, may not be satisfied by the outcome ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jan 23, 2016
94% Room (2015) It's powerful and arresting, although it may fall short of delivering the psychological impact for which the novel is known ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jan 23, 2016
96% Spotlight (2015) The stench of a dead rat in the corner is a fitting analogy to the film's theme about the church cover up to child molestation. Like Truth, the film plays out like a gripping procedural ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jan 23, 2016
69% The Danish Girl (2015) There is much to say about this film with its sensitive subject matter, extraordinary performances and portrayal of exquisite beauty - cinematically and emotionally. It's one of the best of the year - any year ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jan 17, 2016
75% The Hateful Eight (2015) The film is big, bold and beautiful and true to Quentin Tarantino's distinctive style, the action is a mix of explosive confrontations, explicit violence, colourful language and bleak humour ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jan 17, 2016
60% Sisters (2015) There's no shortage of comedic talent on screen, yet Sisters plays a bit like a raunchy stand up routine, loosely stitched together by a narrative that begs for more than crass, out-to-shock verbal torrent ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jan 13, 2016
88% The Big Short (2015) Filled with bravado, this edgy, darkly cutting film about greed, corruption and the 2008 financial crisis left me feeling outraged and terrified. Terrified about the system; human nature; the future ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jan 13, 2016
81% The Revenant (2015) Inarritu's film is cinematic, powerful and raw ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jan 13, 2016
94% Carol (2015) The storytelling is sublime, as is the look of the film. It is a work of sheer beauty ... Blanchett is breathtaking in the title role ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Jan 13, 2016
87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) Crisp clean animation on a sea of colour form the foundation of this endearing family film that brings Charles M. Schulz's beloved comic strip characters to the big screen ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Dec 22, 2015
76% The Good Dinosaur (2015) It plays a little long, but the visuals are spectacular in Pixar's holiday film about family and overcoming fear. It's a curious blend of coming of age story, buddy movie and mid west adventure ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Dec 22, 2015
31% Daddy's Home (2015) Sometimes we all need a dose of nonsense, and this zany comedy fits the bill perfectly with its continual stream of hilarious jousting between Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Dec 22, 2015
60% Joy (2015) Another great turn by Jennifer Lawrence but a bit like sex when it fails to live up to expectations, the film leaves us feeling disappointed. ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Dec 22, 2015
73% Suffragette (2015) While the film resonates on many levels, the composite nature of the characters makes the narrative feel somewhat contrived. This stops a good film from being a great one ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Dec 22, 2015
81% The Bélier Family (La famille Bélier) (2014) Original and in perfect pitch with its audience, The Belier Family is a charmer ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Dec 17, 2015
74% Youth (2015) It is the scale and sheer audacity of Paolo Sorrentino's seductive drama that elevates it into a class of its own. It's remote yet accessible; realistic yet surreal; aloof yet personal ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Dec 17, 2015
92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) The old and the new are seamlessly interwoven in this swashbuckling intergalactic adventure that satisfies on every level with its superb storytelling, endearing characters, splashy visual effects and a masterful score ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Dec 17, 2015
98% Phoenix (2015) Love, loss, life and death intertwine as Hoss's beautiful and expressive features dominate the screen ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Dec 2, 2015
66% The Night Before (2015) With its zany cocktail of friends, unruly Christmas cheer and illicit drugs, The Night Before relies on its absurdity to make it zing. It nearly gets there ... ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Dec 2, 2015
62% Truth (2015) First time director James Vanderbilt has made an arresting, intelligent and thought provoking film that explores the changing face of journalism in a world of big business and political clout. Cate Blanchett and Robert Redford head a wonderful cast ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Dec 2, 2015
43% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) It satisfies mostly on an intellectual level, although I would have liked to be emotionally swept overboard - metaphorically speaking ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Dec 2, 2015
33% By The Sea (2015) Poetic, intimate and beautiful, there's a European sensibility about Angelina Jolie's film about grief and loss. Of course there's an undeniable voyeuristic element. ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Nov 24, 2015
59% The Program (2016) Proficiently made and offering a real sense of being there, the major problem about Stephen Frears' film about drug cheat and seven times Tour de France cycling champion Lance Armstrong is that it feels as though we have seen it all before ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Nov 23, 2015
19% Love the Coopers (2015) It's a mixed stocking and if you're prepared for the Hollywood tinsel search for 'comfort and joy', that's pretty much what you will get ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Nov 23, 2015
38% Secret in Their Eyes (2015) Billy Ray's story about obsession, passion and justice is buoyed by three superb performances and a tense undercurrent that never lets up ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Nov 18, 2015
70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) In a drawn-out but satisfying finale, the franchise with Jennifer Lawrence's strong, selfless female protagonist concludes, amid spectacular action, plot twists and a poignant final screen appearance by Philip Seymour Hoffman ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Nov 18, 2015
15% Absolutely Anything (2015) Mildly amusing, but grossly overdone. The same goes for everything. Absolutely everything ‐ Urban Cinefile
Posted Nov 17, 2015
100% Kaakkaa Muttai (2014) Deceptively simple, this charming film about dreams evolves in the most unexpected way, endearing us its two young slum boy protagonists in the process ‐ Urban Cinefile
