T-Meter Title | Year
2/5 11% United We Fall (2014) Taking predictable potshots at obscene wealth, institutionalised corruption and humourless German goalkeepers, United offers nothing on the beautiful game that Billy the Fish didn't say on the pages of Viz three decades ago. - Total Film EDIT

2/5 39% Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013) Poltergeist goes Back To The Future with only passable results in a film whose activity is more par for the course than paranormal. - Total Film EDIT

2/5 79% The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2012) The pleasure of seeing a supergroup of Brit-veterans soon withers in an OAP comedy that plumps for light laughs over deeper insights. - Total Film EDIT

2/5 26% Green Lantern (2011) A film that's all set-up and no pay-off: an origin story for a hero we don't much care for with an elaborate lore we have zero interest in, toplined by a star who's little more than a torso and a smirk. - Total Film EDIT

2/5 45% You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (2010) Overall it's a cold and inconsequential piece that won't be remembered with affection. - Total Film EDIT

3/5 75% Disneynature Crimson Wing (2008) This elegant doc does for flamingos what March Of The Penguins did for their Antarctic counterparts. - Total Film EDIT

2/5 34% G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009) Puppet satire Team America got there first, on a fraction of the budget and with more animated performances. - Heat Magazine EDIT

4/5 20% Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009) Old folks may find the relentless sensory assault a little draining, but the bangs, 'bots and bombast ensure Fallen has everything Transformers fans will want and expect. - Total Film EDIT

2/5 29% Fade to Black (2006) Like Black Magic itself, alas, this is destined to be a forgotten curio of limited appeal. - EDIT

3/5 71% w Delta z (2006) Ugly to look at and nasty in the extreme, this British-made flick should please genre fans with its icky body horror. Beneath the surface gore, there's a healthy amount of psychological intensity for such a seemingly hackneyed Fincher clone. - Total Film EDIT

3/5 76% Stardust (2007) An uneven but entertaining romp that occasionally over-exerts itself. At times this Princess Bride wannabe feels more like The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen 2, but it's worth catching for Pfeiffer. - Total Film EDIT
