Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
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

97% 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

38% 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

92% 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

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

52% Demolition (2016) In detailing the synopsis, the story becomes unavoidably kitsch which is the film's glaring problem. ‐ Film Ireland Magazine

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

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

95% Marguerite (2016) Because of Mpunga and Frot, Marguerite is a pleasant and emotive experience.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

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

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

77% 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

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
98% 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

80% 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
63% 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
