Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 50% Chéri (2009) This reunion of Dangerous Liaisons talent is a lighter, less demanding confection than its blistering predecessor. Languid delights come in the shape of Pfeiffer, Bates and some extraordinary hats, but the title character is a wash-out.‐ Total Film

1/5 14% Dragonball Evolution (2009) Tearing through its mystical, who-gives-a-toss storyline like a pissed bat bouncing off cave walls, Dragonball's cocktail of cheap effects, eye-rolling cliches and dismal direlogue will have fans of the series condemning it as a beyond-lame failure.‐ Total Film

2/5 73% Tombstone (1993) Doesn't really cut it in the Western genre.‐ Empire Magazine

3/5 33% 20-seiki shônen: Honkaku kagaku bôken eiga (20th Century Boys 1: Beginning of the End) (2008) 20th Century Boys whisks wacko cults, city-stomping robots and the power of rock'n'roll into a bizarre brew that will delight converts but possibly bewilder the uninitiated.‐ Total Film

3/5 77% Appaloosa (2008) A classics-steeped western that rams home tradition over reinvention, Appaloosa kicks it hard as a buddy pic on horseback. Harris and Mortensen's study in laid-back companionship is the principal pleasure, leaving Zellweger mired in role that does her and‐ Total Film

3/5 45% The Strangers (2008) Lean, mean and razor-edged, this nasty little home-invasion thriller drags you by your white knuckles on a horror chill-ride while flicking its middle finger at Funny Games. Prepare to be scared something rotten.‐ Total Film

3/5 55% Step Brothers (2008) You'll laugh a ton, but you might also feel that you can have too much of a good thing.‐ Total Film

4/5 100% Man on Wire (2008) Marsh's film is an achievement in itself, beautifully constructed and carried off; and that's only fitting when his subject epitomises the soul-lifting power of that perpetual human hunger to do the impossible.‐ Total Film

3/5 38% Flashbacks of a Fool (2008) It's a fool's paradise for Craig as his fading filmstar looks back on how teenage hormones lead to tragedy. Walsh doesn't fritter away Daniel's magnanimity, but the lurch between Hollywood washout and ramshackle English adolescence needs more to bond.‐ Total Film

3/5 56% Single White Female (1992) Fluffy thriller, with moments of unintentional humour.‐ Empire Magazine

4/5 66% The Kite Runner (2007) The film deftly spans the cruelty of Afghan history, from the Soviet invasion to Taliban desolation.‐ Total Film

3/5 30% Youth Without Youth (2007) Youth Without Youth is tinged with Coppola's abiding, unquenchable affection for cinema. The eccentric narrative may baffle and meander, but there are glimpses of a great director getting the feel again.‐ Total Film

2/5 24% Shrooms (2008) A lo-fi shocker with a set-up so perfunctory, if you root around in your popcorn too long you'll miss it.‐ Total Film

2/5 7% Silk (2007) Sluggish storytelling enlivens neither Pitt's infatuation with a local concubine nor the stubbornly feudal society it's set against. Worst of all, though, you just never give a toss.‐ Total Film

3/5 68% School Ties (1992) The boys put in fine performances but sadly the script lacks the depth of what could have been a challenging story.‐ Empire Magazine

4/5 90% Michael Clayton (2007) Continuing to seek out writer/directors with something to say, Clooney's latest pair-up packs its anti-corporate agenda with enough meat to keep you hooked.‐ Total Film

4/5 65% Death Proof (2007) Now with added lapdance, QT's B-movie homage to cars and girls deploys its cheap thrills with laid-back craft and class. Russell's wicked fun, Bell's a true trooper. Distributors! Can we have Planet Terror now, please?‐ Total Film

4/5 86% 2 Days in Paris (2007) 2 Days is a sparky, crowd-cheering gem buoyed by Julie Delpy's smart writing and Adam Goldberg's tart whining. Less swoony than Linklater's Before Sunrise/Sunset, but Delpy nails the relationship humour.‐ Total Film

4/5 70% Molière (2007) Both a glittering showcase for a literary giant's comic genius and a first-class farce in its own right. By turns funny, mysterious, suffering and sexy, Romain Duris again proves he's the most charismatic French actor working today.‐ Total Film

5/5 97% Casablanca (1942) One of those rare films where every shot and every quotable line of dialogue counts, there's not a dead patch in Casablanca.‐ Total Film

4/5 75% Black Book (2007) Stacked with espionage, romance and tragedy, this sees Verhoeven back on his game, while van Houten gives a bold breakout performance.‐ Total Film

4/5 90% The Piano (1993) The Piano deserves its place as a classic.‐ Empire Magazine

3/5 75% The Firm (1993) An average movie improved by Cruise's star appeal and accomplished supporting cast.‐ Empire Magazine
