Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 93% Dunkirk (2017) It's a magnificent movie of staid heroism, utterly opulent in its bleakness. ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

3/5 67% Cars 3 (2017) A final act plot point shows the only sign that this franchise has matured beyond its original 'heh, talking cars' premise, but it takes a lot of autopiloting to get there.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) An amazing Spider-Man, a spectacular Spider-Man, and yes, the ultimate Spider-Man.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 23% The Book of Henry (2017) I'd rather watch a film that's trying to be a heart-warming tale, mawkish drama and generic cat-and-mouse thriller all at the same time than any of those things individually.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 94% Baby Driver (2017) It zips along at a fast pace, cruising on cool characters and a nifty knack for nailing every beat in every scene.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

3/5 100% Edith Walks (2017) Kötting conjures a certain amateurish charm in an otherwise perplexing film that - ironically - lacks clear direction.‐ Total Film

3/5 100% Destination Unknown (2016) Ferguson's film feels vital in sharing harrowing stories of life in concentration camps, while the message is clear: even 70 years later, these survivors will never be fully free.‐ Total Film

4/5 92% The Shepherd (El pastor) (2016) A striking, well-composed modern western.‐ Total Film

3/5 11% Spark: A Space Tail (2017) An animated intergalactic 'tail' with plenty of humour, but not enough heart.‐ Total Film

4/5 100% Machines (2016) While their situation feels futile, the film is almost poetic in posing important questions.‐ Total Film

4/5 82% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) If Vol 1 was a mixed tape of great numbers, Vol 2 simply swaps out the songs with like-for-like beats and turns the volume way up.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 100% Who's Gonna Love Me Now? (2016) Juggling heartbreaking frankness with uplifting scenes of love and solidarity, this is a sensitive exploration of family, faith and opposing cultures.‐ Total Film

4/5 80% Personal Shopper (2017) Objectively the best performance of Stewart's career. She flits between hollow listlessness and heightened agitation - two behaviours that are well within her discomfort zone‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 100% The Age of Shadows (2016) Twists and betrayals add spice to a familiar cat-and-mouse tale, while director Kim Jee-woon handles spectacle and drama with equal aplomb.‐ Total Film

4/5 95% Gleason (2016) This moving docu-portrait of former NFL player Steve Gleason's battle with motor neurone disease is as much heartrending home video as it is awareness-raiser.‐ Total Film

3/5 96% The Love Witch (2016) This colour saturated world of hokey pocus is truly intoxicating ... [but] I just haven't fallen under The Love Witch's spell‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 76% Kong: Skull Island (2017) There are so many money-shots in this movie, it has already grossed enough cash to purchase a lifetime's supply of bananas for a real-life King Kong.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 95% The Creeping Garden (2015) It's a grower.‐ Total Film

2/5 81% Patriots Day (2017) At a certain point, consideration becomes clinginess, and Berg holds on so tight to his emotional pandering, it comes at the expense of everything else‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 87% LoveTrue (2016) Blurring art and life boundaries, this is playful, thoughtful and beautiful.‐ Total Film

3/5 73% Sing (2016) Whatever I say in this review, know that my son - easily closer in age to the target demographic than I - rates it 10 out of 10 choo-choo trains or whatever‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

5/5 92% La La Land (2016) The rare kind of spellbinding, wonderful film that has reviewers like me tripping over themselves to find new superlatives for describing it.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

4/5 27% Crazy About Tiffany's (2016) Pepped up with clips from Sex and the City and Breakfast at Tiffany's, Matthew Miele's film is as stylish and playful as Tiffany's signature packaging.‐ Total Film

2/5 29% Ming Of Harlem: Twenty One Storeys In The Air (2014) Antoine Yates is worthy docu-fodder. Shame, then, that director Philip Warne is less interested in Yates' story than in philosophising about man's relationship with nature.‐ Total Film

4/5 No Score Yet The Call Up (2016) Filled with action, intrigue and snazzy visuals, writer/director Charles Barker's first feature impresses, even if the concept is hard to swallow.‐ Total Film

4/5 100% Hard Tide (2015) The performances are charming, but this is no less effective as a violent, gritty crimer than it is as a sweet tale of friendship and redemption.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2017
3/5 No Score Yet Creature Designers - The Frankenstein Complex (Le complexe de Frankenstein) (2016) All in all, this might've played better as a Blu-ray extra.‐ Total Film

2/5 No Score Yet Pandorica (2016) A case of smart ideas, so-so execution.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2017
4/5 No Score Yet Motley's Law (2015) What draws focus most is Motley's unique story: an ex-beauty queen, she left her family in the US to pursue an obligation to help potential clients.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2017
4/5 55% Anguish (2015) A refreshingly character-focused horror story, garnished with creepily effective visuals.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2017
3/5 47% One & Two (2015) The sci-fi element confounds rather than enhances; we're left with a sense of anticlimax fuelled by loose ends and unexplored potential.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2017
4/5 70% The Visit: An Alien Encounter (The Visit) (2015) With stunning otherworldly imagery accompanying the deeply philosophical debate, The Visit pleases the eye as much as the brain.‐ Total Film

3/5 60% The Last Diamond (Le Dernier Diamant) (2014) Barbier never forgets the vital ingredient fun even if the character interplay doesnt always sparkle like the titular gem.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2017
3/5 36% Up for Love (Un homme à la hauteur) (2016) The film flirts with near-offensive gags and attitudes, but there's inventive use of forced perspective, even if the focus should be more on Diane changing hers.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2017
3/5 No Score Yet The Founders (2017) An inspiring -- if occasionally saccharine -- story, told with genuine affection.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2017
2/5 60% The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers (2015) There are lots of themes floating around but none have much impact.‐ Total Film

4/5 100% Truman (2017) If the result is unlikely to leave audiences bawling, it's still a well-observed study of life and loss.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2017
3/5 0% ID2: Shadwell Army (2016) This belated sequel adds racial and political tension to what's essentially a retelling of the 1995 footy-fan drama.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2017
4/5 No Score Yet The Confession (2016) Far from being a shock exposé, the film sees Moazzam argue his beliefs with intelligence, compassion and valuable insight.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2017
4/5 93% The Pearl Button (El botón de nácar) (2015) Chilean documentarian Patricio Guzmán delivers a stunning companion piece to his 2010 film Nostalgia For The Light, continuing his exploration of the effects of Augusto Pinochet's ruthless dictatorship.‐ Total Film

3/5 65% Learning To Drive (2015) Kingsley essays both authenticity and humour, but it's often hard to know what's steering the story.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2016
5/5 94% Fire at Sea (Fuocoammare) (2016) Rosi offers a simple, stark contrast between quiet moments of everyday life and tragedy as mass fleeing results in sunken boats, horrific injuries and death.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2016
4/5 100% Crash and Burn (2016) Detailing his flair on the track and partying off it, this compellingly explores the question: did he ruin his own chance of greatness, or did others deliberately stall him?‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2016
4/5 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) There is always the danger with a film of this high profile to expect or want it to over-deliver. Sadly - though understandably - Rogue One just doesn't do that. ‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2016
3/5 79% Ip Man 3 (2016) An uneven mix of fancy fist-work and run-of-the-mill plotting.‐ Total Film
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2016
3/5 72% The Birth of a Nation (2016) Can you separate the art from the artist? The truth is, the only reason this film doesn't deserve film awards recognition is that it just doesn't quite deliver on its own promise.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2016
3/5 61% Snowden (2016) Oliver Stone's clear reverence for Snowden undermines the central message in the most damaging way possible: by making it clear that the film is biased towards its own hero.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Dec 10, 2016
4/5 73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) At one point, it looks like a giant sex rhino impregnates a tree by shooting his load of magical horn seed into it.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk

2/5 23% Bad Santa 2 (2016) While the film will probably prove divisive among the majority of cinemagoers, it will be universally loved by terrible people.‐ TheShiznit.co.uk
Read More | Posted Nov 28, 2016
3/5 60% The Incident (2015) The class clash is beautifully captured by cinematographer Pau Castejón, and Gedmintas gives a powerful performance of middle-class angst and guilt.‐ Total Film
