8% The Emoji Movie (2017) To put it in the film's own terms, The Emoji Movie is one big pile of Patrick Stewart.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

89% Land of Mine (Under Sandet) (2017) Land of Mine is a refreshing surprise that deserves its nomination at the Oscars simply by being humane, heartfelt, and shocking without feeling necessary to delve into the platitudes of glorifying heroics.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

62% England Is Mine (2017) Music biographies are best when they offer insight into an artist's life for fans and an introduction for newcomers. England is Mine offers neither.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

90% A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove) (2016) Despite its flaws, A Man Called Ove still manages to deliver an emotionally satisfying experience through its charming and compelling cast who help elevate the material to an enjoyable standard.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

82% Risk (2017) Poitras finds fresh ground to cover, bringing the important stories of the past back into the present spotlight where it's as important as ever to discuss.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

32% From the Land of the Moon (Mal de pierres) (2017) While direction and production are still to the high quality expected from Garcia, the false promise of exploring new territory makes the overall experience feel lacking, despite its better qualities.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

100% Cardboard Gangsters (2017) The simultaneous and skilful balancing between exploring and appreciating the community of Darndale helps Cardboard Gangsters remain remarkably on the level of its subject matter.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

90% Frantz (2017) While not quite the masterpiece that it intends to be, Frantz still stands as one of the most touching romances this year so far.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted May 18, 2017
50% The Promise (2017) For those with an acquired taste for epic romance films from yesteryear, The Promise should recall fond memories of a genre rarely seen in cinema today.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Apr 28, 2017
46% Going in Style (2017) Going in Style is not a bad film by any means, but its biggest crime is being an unimpressionable one.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2017
96% Graduation (Bacalaureat) (2017) It's an overall satisfying drama from Mungiu, but signs of exhaustion in his ideas are starting to show. There's only so much bleakness any person can take from another.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Mar 31, 2017
37% Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) A product of a far less interesting time, there simply is no necessity for Smurfs anymore. Instead, Sony Animations continue to prove they're one of the worst modern animation studios producing films today.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

93% Logan (2017) Even as the formulaic plotline of government/corporations versus the disenfranchised that X-Men have used for seventeen years now begins to surface, it fails to diminish from the intensity and excitement rampant throughout every scene.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

84% The Founder (2017) While The Founder follows the usual beats of films depicting the vices of business and wealth, it distinguishes itself through a brilliant final act.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
99% Cameraperson (2016) At a time when the truth becomes questionable and dubious to the public at large, Cameraperson feels not only timely but relevant to the ongoing determination.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2017
52% Demolition (2016) In detailing the synopsis, the story becomes unavoidably kitsch which is the film's glaring problem. ‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2017
31% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) While the first film contains a stronger narrative structure and overall visual design, the primary concern of both films is to have fun, and in this respect, Resurgence provides plenty.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

40% Why Him? (2016) The biggest crime committed is having Bryan Cranston wasted in a straight-man role when he has so much more talent than the literal toilet humour he's given to work with. Avoid at all costs.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2017
53% Triple 9 (2016) As a whole, the ideas, themes, and talent the film brings together don't quite blend well enough to be satisfying in this otherwise generic crime thriller.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2017
95% Marguerite (2016) Because of Mpunga and Frot, Marguerite is a pleasant and emotive experience.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2017
96% Bobby Sands: 66 Days (2016) Anyone should seek out Bobby Sands: 66 Days if interested in a significant turning point in Irish history.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2017
84% Sweet Bean (An) (2016) Sweet Bean is a film that does its conventions right but gives nothing impactful as a result.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2017
78% Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) Popstar simply doesn't go far enough.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2016
93% Tickled (2016) Tickled is a brilliant mystery film and simply has to be seen to be believed.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2016
70% Café Society (2016) It's an unimpressively mediocre romantic comedy that has enough little things to save it from being boring, but the clear lack of effort can be frustrating for those who expect more from a film by Woody Allen.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2016
97% Hell or High Water (2016) It illustrates that, with enough tweaking and refinement, even a generic story can be made into a tense pacing thriller that can still surprise while trying to be as entertaining as possible.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2016
81% Chi-Raq (2015) While Chi-Raq may not be for everyone, it certainly exhibits a strong passion for artistic creativity that never falters for a second.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2016
64% Storks (2016) Genuinely funny for all ages.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2016
No Score Yet The Flag (2016) At best, it can be recommended to those who admire Pat Shortt and are willing to see anything he does, but there is so little offered in the film that it will inevitably plummet into complete obscurity within a year at least.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

37% Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016) While it might be comfortable to place Tom Cruise within a typical action setting, it also hinders the film by turning itself inadvertently into Mission Impossible on a smaller budget.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
