Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 83% Lost In London Live (2017) Laced with self-mockery, it's very funny, and far better than we had any right to expect.‐ London Evening Standard

94% Iron Man (2008) There's a satisfyingly climactic CGI battle, but Downey Jr tops it in the witty denouement with pure acting skill.‐ London Evening Standard

2/5 72% The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) Shame. We finally get a British superhero, and he's a bit boring.‐ London Evening Standard

2/5 36% One Day (2011) The film falls into every trap of literary adaptation. It's rushed, superficial, unmoving, full of characters explaining the plot to one another.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 71% Never Let Me Go (2010) Like all the best sci-fi, it's about how we live now, rather than the future.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 47% The A-Team (2010) Joe Carnahan's movie is loud and vulgar and disorienting, but also an exhilarating kind of fun.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 75% Kick-Ass (2010) Kick-Ass succinctly deflates Spider-Man style solemnity: "With no power comes no responsibility." It is blissfully, outrageously funny.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 96% Exit Through The Gift Shop (2010) If art-prankster Banksy's first film is a hoax, as it just might be, it's an extremely complex and clever one. With echoes of the Frankenstein story.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 71% Sherlock Holmes (2009) The film is Ritchie's most coherent bit of storytelling. The tone is light but not facetious and the pace would be hectic if there weren't so many humdrum lacunae.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 84% Avatar (2009) The detail, the depth, the jaw-dropping boldness of Avatar simply bowl you over.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 79% Nowhere Boy (2010) Nowhere Boy has striking emotional depth, a spot-on sense of period, and a central performance of remarkable texture and nuance from newcomer Aaron Johnson.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 64% The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009) A triumph. That Dr Parnassus was finished at all following the death mid-shoot of its star Heath Ledger is impressive. That it hangs together as a striking work of fantasy is truly remarkable.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 98% Up (2009) Up matches or surpasses Pixar's previous hits like Toy Story, Monsters Inc and Finding Nemo. It shares their joyousness and visual flair, but for all its flights of fancy is more firmly rooted in the real, human world.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 84% Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009) For all the raging teenage hormones stirred into the usual potion of magic and adventure, the sixth instalment of the Harry Potter saga is a slickly unemotional affair.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 94% The Dark Knight (2008) [Ledger's] manic zest gives the film its energy.‐ London Evening Standard

1/5 53% Sheitan (2007) Despite the air of brutish aggression and sexual predatoriness, little happens until gory retribution finally rears its head.‐ London Evening Standard

0/5 4% Because I Said So (2007) Treats women like idiots and men like inflatable sex toys.‐ London Evening Standard

2/5 71% The Science of Sleep (2006) It's all lovely to look at, but becomes progressively wearisome.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 69% The 9th Company (9 rota) (2005) It's all beautifully photographed and lit, using a bright palette that recalls old Technicolor, and exerts a cumulative power over its 130 minutes.‐ London Evening Standard

2/5 91% Hot Fuzz (2007) Wright and Pegg's second film isn't as good as their first. That's a common enough problem and Shaun of the Dead raised ridiculously high expectations.‐ London Evening Standard
