T-Meter Title | Year
4/5 92% Anomalisa (2015) More emotionally complex than many humans you'll see on screen in 2016, their grapples with loneliness will pull powerfully on your heartstrings, no puppet pun intended. - Digital Spy EDIT

66% The Rover (2014) A cautionary tale with deceptive genre trappings, The Rover is an unconventional, challenging but rewarding watch with riveting performances and assured direction. - Film4 EDIT

74% Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) Burgundy's back, and fans of the original won't be disappointed: the madness is turned up to eleven and the whole cast are on form. - Film4 EDIT

43% Closed Circuit (2013) Closed Circuit zips along nicely and has a decent stab at being a serious contemporary thriller, but feels too contained for its far-reaching ideas. - Film4 EDIT

2/5 45% The Call (2013) The kind of clichéd nonsense so common in the mid-'90s, it's a throwback - and not necessarily in a good way. - Empire Magazine EDIT

72% Pieta (2013) Dark and twisted but without the depth to back it up, Pietà is determined to provoke controversy at the expense of characterisation. - Film4 EDIT

66% Elysium (2013) Visually stunning and with flashes of inspired genius, Elysium shows promise but is let down by an uneven structure, weak characterisation and an over-reliance on extended fight scenes. - Film4 EDIT

3/5 85% Eden (2013) A solid, well-acted film sadly bereft of the threat and drama required to truly convey the horror of Chong Kim's situation. - Empire Magazine EDIT

4/5 92% Skyfall (2012) The Bond cocktail is given another good hard shake, and the result is not just a cracking entry in the franchise but also a fitting tribute to 007 in his fiftieth cinematic year. Cheers! - Film4 EDIT

3/5 80% I Saw the Devil (2011) Violent, visceral and vengeful: a catalogue of torture with frustratingly little else to maintain the interest. - Film4 EDIT
