Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 88% Straight Outta Compton (2015) Gray's stroke of genius is to take a wonderfully cheesy, melodramatic rags-to-riches tale and shoot it in the style of an action movie, complete with sex, drugs and violence.‐ Radio Times

4/5 88% White God (2015) A beautiful and bizarre film that veers between gritty realism and haunting fantasy, and from a human perspective to a dog's-eye-view of the world.‐ Radio Times

3/5 88% Coherence (2014) The characters are flat and indistinct, and the actors lack the ability to give impact to the supposedly shocking revelations about their relationships, let alone do justice to the big ideas at the film's core.‐ Radio Times

4/5 96% What We Do In The Shadows (2015) This delightfully deadpan spoof about a ragtag bunch of Kiwi vampires breathes new life into the mockumentary format.‐ Radio Times

4/5 87% Gone Girl (2014) Even if you have read the book and know what happens in Gone Girl, you're still in for a treat watching the movie. And if you haven't read it and don't know what happens, well then you're definitely in for a treat.‐ Radio Times

2/5 5% Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Movie (2004) Only fans of the series will be able to follow the largely incomprehensible plot -- and the bog-standard animation won't win it any new ones.‐ Radio Times

4/5 90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) This is a storming, soulful blockbuster that's got both brains and heart.‐ Radio Times

4/5 89% Calvary (2014) A soulful, thought-provoking and warmly human fable.‐ Radio Times

4/5 83% The Double (2014) Ayoade bravely avoids lightening the tone, instead utilising impressive sound editing and cinematography to craft a moody, paranoid psychological fantasy.‐ Radio Times

4/5 69% Stoker (2013) Kidman's immobile, slightly scary face is used to great effect; Goode oozes malevolent charm; and Wasikowska skilfully keeps you guessing as to whether India is an angel or a monster.‐ Radio Times

3/5 53% Dr Seuss' The Lorax (2012) The catchy songs, personable characters and heartfelt message mean this is still a sweet and enjoyable concoction.‐ Radio Times

4/5 90% Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011) Durkin's intelligent, hypnotic and compelling film echoes Martha's fractured mental state, so as the events of the past are slowly revealed, we're never sure whether they are real or imagined.‐ Radio Times

3/5 87% A Monster in Paris (2011) While the attempts at humour occasionally fall flat, there's plenty of excitement in the chase scenes and a refreshing lack of sentiment, and the movie is topped by bewitchingly memorable songs.‐ Radio Times

4/5 73% Dreams of a Life (2012) She may have been forgotten in life, but Joyce Vincent will haunt anyone who watches this astonishing film.‐ Radio Times

3/5 95% Knuckle (2011) It's all a little rough and ready, and by its nature rather repetitive, but as a look inside a normally hidden part of an already insular culture, Knuckle packs a genuine punch.‐ Radio Times

3/5 83% Life, Above All (2011) The subject matter is undeniably grim, but there's hope and forgiveness at the heart of this South Africa-set drama.‐ Radio Times

3/5 18% The Tooth Fairy (2010) Johnson is an eminently likeable lead and the impressive supporting cast, including Ashley Judd, Julie Andrews and Billy Crystal, makes up for Johnson's lack of acting finesse.‐ Radio Times

3/5 84% Whip It (2009) [It's] hard not to be moved by the irrepressible sense of fun and optimism on display here.‐ Radio Times

4/5 91% Ponyo (2009) This is a million miles away from the garish and crude cartoons that American studios often churn out, and serves as a reminder that animated films can be imaginative, enchanting and exciting while still telling a sweet, good-hearted story.‐ Radio Times

3/5 50% Astro Boy (AstroBoy) (2009) The film presents some fairly adult themes in an understandable way, and it's also less cheesy and sentimental than a lot of animated fare. But it still packs in some exciting action sequences and impressive comic relief.‐ Radio Times

4/5 91% Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire (2009) Stylistically the film is a confusing, garish mishmash of gritty urban realism and hyper-stylised fantasy sequences. However, these glimpses behind Precious's otherwise impassive facade are effective.‐ Radio Times

4/5 97% A Prophet (Un prophete) (2010) An unforgettable experience.‐ Radio Times
