T-Meter Title | Year
3/5 95% Among the Believers (2016) This isn't Friday night viewing, and there's certainly nothing groundbreaking here, but if you're interested in gaining insight into the rationale of Jihadism, this should certainly be a pitstop. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Welcome To This House (2015) Whilst WTTH sometimes feels at risk of slipping into self-indulgence, this doesn't detract from the fact that it is completely engaging, and one you certainly won't forget for a while. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 51% Hardcore Henry (2016) Hardcore Henry is one of those rare films that almost makes so little sense that it makes perfect sense. But what it lacks in plotline, it makes up for with some seriously innovative first-person special effects. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 48% The Take (Bastille Day) (2016) It's not the worst film in the world, but it is painfully mediocre. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 37% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) Shadows' main issue lies in the fact that they probably should have cut at least half an hour of run time; an already stretched script is stretched even further... - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 55% The Purge: Election Year (2016) The saving grace of Election Year has to be the optimism that was lacking from previous films. There's finally some light at the end of this tunnel. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 82% Sausage Party (2016) If you're settling in for a stoner flick, you will feel short-changed by what is essentially a political lecture from Seth Rogen. Aside from a fantastic performance from Edward Norton, you will likely be disappointed. - One Room With A View EDIT

1/5 77% A Street Cat Named Bob (2016) Nothing other than a 'woe is me' tale of a drug addict who happened to be offered a second chance - with a few cat puns thrown in. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 94% The Edge of Seventeen (2016) Steinfeld portrays Nadine in such a way that you can't help but relate to her insecurities. A dry and witty supporting turn from Harrelson is the cherry on top of the cake for this surprising gem of a film... - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 83% Deepwater Horizon (2016) Horizon is visually spectacular, positively bludgeoning you with that emotional baseball bat. But it's the strong performances from Wahlberg, Russell, and co. that firmly secure the ORWAV seal of approval. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 41% Office Christmas Party (2016) The film is definitely set during the holiday season, and there's definitely a Santa suit floating around there somewhere, but you still feel a little dirty after you watch it. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 77% Split (2017) Although Split is fascinating, tense and creepy to the point of discomfort, its main issue is that it puts all its cards on the table too early. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 24% Fist Fight (2017) With reliably strong (and somewhat wasted) performances from Day and Ice Cube, the end product isn't a total disaster. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 73% Gifted (2017) Gifted, without a doubt, has to be considered one of the more life-affirming watches of 2017. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 41% Den of Thieves (2018) Incoherent plotting and crime-caper clichés aside, this is a surprisingly refreshing take on the genre, and one that surely won't disappoint any die-hard Gerard Butler fans. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 23% The 15:17 to Paris (2018) While the storytelling is competent enough, unfortunately the narrative is lost in an uneventful timeline and awkward exchanges. - One Room With A View EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 26, 2019
3/5 39% Gringo (2018) Entertaining enough, with a sufficient number of internal chuckles to be able to overlook any missteps, Gringo's main downfall is an overcooked script and an A-list cast that puts too much pressure on the film as a whole. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 35% American Assassin (2017) While American Assassin offers what could have been an interesting idea, it merely ends up feeling like a modern-day reworking of every other spy action film. - One Room With A View EDIT

1/5 4% Flatliners (2017) Unfortunately, the film flatlines roughly five minutes in, and never fully recovers. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 73% The Ritual (2017) While The Ritual may not bring anything new to the table, it does offer stress and misery aplenty, meaning that any viewers who are happy with the same old horror clichés certainly won't feel cheated. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 30% A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) Whilst Bad Moms Christmas does, admittedly, have some stand out comedic moments, unfortunately they're largely overshadowed by crass stripper sets and overused Christmas clichés. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 88% Only the Brave (2017) Entertaining enough if you're willing to overlook the blatant disregard for cliché-avoidance that we see from Kosinski. - One Room With A View EDIT

1/5 20% Daddy's Home 2 (2017) A few genuine laugh-out-loud moments aside, Daddy's Home 2 is truly nothing to write home about. - One Room With A View EDIT

1/5 33% Super Troopers 2 (2018) Lazy, awkward, and littered with the kind of jokes that just aren't acceptable in 2018. Watch it only if you have a deep love of the original - but women and French-Canadians should beware. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 54% The First Purge (2018) If you're here to understand the origins of Purge Night, then you'll be sorely disappointed. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 17% The Darkest Minds (2018) It's enjoyable enough, and the concept alone will probably be enough to keep even the most jaded audiences entertained. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 33% King of Thieves (2019) The real problem here is that these characters are inherently charmless, and therefore any small amount of entertainment is drowned out by their unethical (and somewhat confusing) actions. - One Room With A View EDIT
