T-Meter Title | Year
8/10 84% Ghost Stories (2018) Nyman and Dyson have put so much effort into crafting an intense, thrilling, mysterious story and it's seriously paid off. - JumpCut Online EDIT

5/5 93% Incredibles 2 (2018) I'm so glad we were given a well structured, thought provoking and thoroughly entertaining sequel that didn't exist just to cash in on a franchise name. - JumpCut Online EDIT

5/5 92% Searching (2018) Searching is unlike any modern thriller I've seen, and actually knows how to do social media and the online world right, without being gimmicky. - JumpCut Online EDIT

2/5 61% Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) Gilroy's attempt to show the horrors of the art world falls flat, and certainly doesn't live up to the expectations based on the success of Nightcrawler. - JumpCut Online EDIT

4/5 92% The Kindergarten Teacher (2018) Maggie Gyllenhaal is at the top of her game in The Kindergarten Teacher, delivering a performance that leaves audiences feeling conflicted. - JumpCut Online EDIT

5/5 88% Brittany Runs a Marathon (2019) Brittany Runs a Marathon is a contender for one of this year's biggest surprises. On the surface, its easy to write this off as "just another average comedy", but it's infinitely better than that. - JumpCut Online EDIT

3/5 56% The Hunt (2020) Whilst I admire its attempts to criticise, it didn't really add anything noteworthy to the conversation. But perhaps it wasn't trying to. - JumpCut Online EDIT

3/5 20% The Jack in the Box (2020) Lawrence Fowler's fun, freaky take on the 'creepy doll' narrative is definitely worth a watch, but it doesn't do anything extraordinary. It's a nice popcorn film to enjoy on a cold, winter's afternoon, and there's nothing wrong with that. - The Horrorcist EDIT

4/5 94% Marriage Story (2019) If you want a very honest look at what it's like to go through a divorce, then Marriage Story is just that. This isn't the kind of film that sugarcoats anything and instead takes its audience on an emotional rollercoaster from start to finish. - Lucy Goes to Hollywood EDIT

4/5 92% Lynn + Lucy (2019) Lynn + Lucy is a tragic, sometimes amusing, look at working class families and close knit communities, as well as the devastating effects of a personal tragedy. - Lucy Goes to Hollywood EDIT

5/5 80% Jojo Rabbit (2019) Whilst you might feel some apprehension about the concept of a 10-year-old boy who has Hitler as an imaginary friend, Taika Waititi has turned it into something brilliant and poignant. - Lucy Goes to Hollywood EDIT

4/5 91% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) If this is the future of rom-com, consider me converted. I was so impressed by the overall film and would recommend it to anyone. - Lucy Goes to Hollywood EDIT

2/5 34% King of Thieves (2019) King of Thieves feels a lot like a straight-to-DVD crime film that you might watch on a lazy Sunday afternoon when you're a bit tired or hungover. - Lucy Goes to Hollywood EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 22, 2020
2.5/5 39% The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018) The Girl In The Spider's Web is nothing like the complex thriller I was expecting it to be, cramming far too much into its runtime and leaving me feeling dissatisfied. - Lucy Goes to Hollywood EDIT

5/5 92% Stan & Ollie (2019) I was captivated throughout, genuinely finding myself laughing out loud at these comedy routines that have aged like a fine wine. - Lucy Goes to Hollywood EDIT

1/5 66% Vice (2018) If you want to learn how to completely and utterly fail at satire, look no further than Adam McKay's Vice. - Lucy Goes to Hollywood EDIT

3/5 90% Shazam! (2019) Shazam! is not a brilliant film, but it's also way better than I was expecting. - Lucy Goes to Hollywood EDIT

4/5 60% Greta (2019) Whilst it isn't the strongest thriller I've seen, it is entertaining throughout and doesn't need to rely on excessive violence in order to make its point. - Lucy Goes to Hollywood EDIT

5/5 96% A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon (2020) Farmageddon is the family film of the year, due to its incredible ability to connect with and amuse audiences of all ages. - Lucy Goes to Hollywood EDIT

3.5/5 77% Richard Jewell (2019) Richard Jewell is a slow burner, and a compelling watch for those who like intense crime dramas that show what actually goes on behind the scenes. - Lucy Goes to Hollywood EDIT

4/5 95% A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is pure movie magic. There's one scene in particular that is best experienced on the big screen, as it requires you to just sit in silence for a moment. - Lucy Goes to Hollywood EDIT

3.5/5 81% Overlord (2018) Overall, Overlord is a smart film that blends war and horror together effortlessly, resulting in a truly terrifying experience. - JumpCut Online EDIT

4/5 95% Little Women (2019) As someone who isn't really a massive period drama fan, I was surprised at how much I adored this and it's inspired me to seek out the novel and give it a read. - Lucy Goes to Hollywood EDIT
