Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 42% A Night in the Woods (2013) No amount of shaky-cam footage or imaginative sound design can lend coherence to these improvised scenes, which were shot on location before being patched together in the editing room.‐ Time Out

3/5 74% Cockneys vs Zombies (2013) This Zimmer-zomcom is as subtle as a brick in the gob, but it's also a laugh riot.‐ Time Out

3/5 39% [REC] 3 Genesis (2012) For all its gleeful limb-severing, offal-scoffing and chainsaw-wielding, this disco mirrorball of a movie scatters ideas in all directions, rather than focusing the spotlight on what counts - the scares.‐ Time Out

2/5 56% The Bourne Legacy (2012) Shares crucial DNA with the earlier films but is drawn from the shallower end of the gene pool.‐ Time Out

2/5 42% Storage 24 (2013) Feels like the germ of an idea with stuff lifted from 'Alien' et al and bolted on.‐ Time Out

2/5 41% Lovely Molly (2012) [Its] cynical hedging of its psychological/supernatural bets seems mostly designed to breed sequels.‐ Time Out

2/5 35% Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012) Essentially a lot of balls.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2012
1/5 18% Chernobyl Diaries (2012) Once the annoying, two-dimensional characters start getting bumped off one by one, it's just a relief that the actors have stopped improvising their own banal dialogue.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2012
3/5 65% The Pact (2012) This haunted house movie achieves a frightening intensity with limited means, but also feels under-characterised and overstretched.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2012
1/5 14% Piranha 3DD (2012) Even the gore is sporadic, poorly staged and unimaginative: as a result, this is neither fish nor foul.‐ Time Out

2/5 88% Patience (After Sebald) (2012) Quote not available.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted May 10, 2012
2/5 79% Juan of the Dead (2012) The 'Evil Dead' and Romero nods are fun, but characters appear for no reason and are bumped off without warning; there's just not enough flesh on these funny bones.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted May 3, 2012
2/5 42% Silent House (2012) Filmmakers Chris Kentis and Laura Lau ('Open Water') should have plugged the original's plot holes and straightened out its logic.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted May 1, 2012
3/5 73% The Monitor (Babycall) (2012) It's the naturalistic intensity of Rapace's performance that stays with us.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2012
1/5 60% Wanderlust (2012) You know you're in trouble when not even the improvised scenes and fluffed out-takes are funny.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Feb 29, 2012
3/5 53% Safe House (2012) While director Espinosa hones in on the ambiguous battle between Weston's idealism and Frost's cynicism, British cinematographer Oliver Wood - who filmed the last two Bourne movies - shoots the hell out of everything.‐ Time Out

2/5 No Score Yet Shadow (2009) Quote not available.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2012
2/5 17% Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2012) Supernatural fantasy movies often work best when the film-maker's tongue is planted firmly in the cheek.‐ Time Out

3/5 69% X: Night of Vengeance (2011) Quote not available.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2012
2/5 31% Intruders (2012) As these parallel supernatural mysteries begin to meld into one another, all semblance of credibility dissolves, leaving behind an impenetrable and frustrating fog of unanswered questions.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2012
1/5 26% Underworld: Awakening (2012) Crude, cheap and pointless, this surely drives a stake through the heart of the 'Underworld' franchise.‐ Time Out

3/5 46% Yes Man (2008) Quote not available.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Dec 23, 2011
3/5 92% Evil Angels (A Cry in the Dark) (1988) The powerful performances and sharp script augment this revealing human drama.‐ Empire Magazine
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2011
3/5 64% Another Earth (2011) Cahill's visually inconsistent first feature tries to beam epic sci-fi concepts into a micro-human drama, refracting its thought-provoking ideas through the prism of the central emotional relationship.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2011
2/5 No Score Yet Camp Hell (Camp Hope) (2010) Budgetary limitations, a plodding script, ropey visual effects and an excruciating score undercut a heartfelt cautionary tale about a confused teenager wrestling with his religious faith and the dogmatism of his overzealous elders.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2011
4/5 50% Doomsday (2008) Marshall's adrenalin-fuelled skill and enthusiasm propel the action forward with reckless abandon.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Nov 24, 2011
2/5 6% Dream House (2011) A well-acted but ramshackle mess.‐ Time Out

2/5 18% The Happening (2008) At first, a great deal happens, then nothing much happens for quite some time, then something so underwhelming happens that one is left wondering, 'Did that really just happen?'‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2011
4/5 83% The Snowtown Murders (2012) 'Snowtown' is an uncomfortable film to watch, but its sickening suburban horror is made bearable by Kurzel's rigorous restraint...‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2011
2/5 61% The Awakening (2012) A ridiculous revelation and a redundant sexual assault undercut all good sense, as fierce rationality gives way to absurd contrivance and hysteria.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Nov 8, 2011
2/5 30% The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) (2011) In stark contrast to the original's cool, clinical horror, Martin's cack-handed creation of the arse-to-mouth creature is played for cheap, sick slapstick laughs.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2011
2/5 24% The Three Musketeers (2011) One for all and all for nowt.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2011
3/5 58% Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark (2011) There is so much here that one admires, one wishes that there was more to love.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2011
3/5 77% A Lonely Place to Die (2011) The film's relentless momentum, coupled with Ali Asad's breathtaking location photography, distract us from the often two-dimensional supporting characters.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2011
4/5 82% Trollhunter (2011) Given that the cast improvised all the scenes live on set, the dialogue has a surprising ring of truth, and is shot through with an unexpected, often unsettling, humour.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2011
2/5 72% Fright Night (2011) A boring revamp, with dull 3D effects, insipid teenage protagonists and only sporadically scary outbursts of neck-biting, crucifix-wielding and staking through the heart.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2011
3/5 62% Final Destination 5 (2011) It sticks to gimmicky scenes in which twentysomethings are dispatched in ingenious ways, but first-time director Steven Quayle delivers cheap fun that will keep fans happy.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2011
3/5 82% Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) Distinguishes itself from other ill-conceived reboots in general, and from Tim Burton's disastrous 2001 remake in particular, by looking with fresh, simian eyes at its core conflict between human and primates.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2011
2/5 36% Larry Crowne (2011) This is like a well-worn vintage dress: comfortable but a little threadbare.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2011
4/5 75% Stake Land (2011) Jeff Grace's melancholy music underscores the atmosphere of bleak dystopian despair, leavened by flashes of humour and hope.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2011
1/5 33% The Hangover Part II (2011) Your head hurts like hell, the whole thing feels horribly familiar, and it's just not funny any more. Can this really be happening again?‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted May 25, 2011
3/5 91% Los ojos de Julia (Julia's Eyes) (2010) Aims for intricate, Hitchcockian suspense, embellished with ornate visual flourishes that recall Dario Argento's early giallo movies.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted May 18, 2011
2/5 80% I Saw the Devil (2011) A remorseless catalogue of calculated violence, casual cannibalism and sexual sadism, this inflicts over two hours of suffering on the audience...‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2011
2/5 66% Insidious (2011) Not so much insidious as inexcusable.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2011
3/5 71% The Silent House (2011) Cranks up the tension with fluid, choreographed camera moves and unnerving off-screen sounds.‐ Time Out
