Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1/5 6% Cell (2016) "The curse of the Stephen King adaptation strikes once again in Cell, an insipid and often ludicrous adaptation of the author's 2006 tech-horror novel. " ‐ The List
Posted Aug 22, 2016
3/5 82% The Wave (Bolgen) (2016) "Such apocalyptic events are nothing new on-screen, but Norwegian director Roar Uthaug imbues his film with rather more grit and texture than formulaic Hollywood efforts like 2012 and San Andreas. " ‐ The List
Posted Aug 8, 2016
1/5 26% Suicide Squad (2016) "While it might be good to be bad, Suicide Squad is just plain awful. " ‐ The List
Posted Aug 5, 2016
2/5 67% Traders "While it may be a film of commendable high ambition, ultimately Traders is just another grim urban fairy tale about the ridiculous games of deeply unlikeable men. " ‐ The List
Posted Jul 25, 2016
2/5 82% Chevalier (2016) "Watching these men engage in one foolish game after another is at first mildly amusing then quickly dull ... " ‐ The List
Posted Jul 18, 2016
4/5 92% Queen of Earth (2015) "Queen of Earth plays like a horror. Yet, at its heart it is a devastating story of depression and its impact. " ‐ The List
Posted Jun 27, 2016
4/5 94% Remainder "Remainder is a strikingly original, hypnotic film and, by the time it reaches its bold head-scratcher of a denouement, one that leaves an indelible mark. " ‐ The List
Posted Jun 20, 2016
4/5 74% The Keeping Room (2015) "A film that speaks to the universal realities of the female experience. " ‐ The List
Posted Jun 13, 2016
4/5 85% The Daughter "The Daughter eschews melodrama to become a searing, poignant and devastating study of the seismic power of betrayal. " ‐ The List
Posted May 23, 2016
2/5 80% These Final Hours (2015) "Hilditch's apocalyptic vision is striking in its visuals, bold in its bleakness and completely unoriginal in its core narrative. " ‐ The List
Posted May 4, 2016
2/5 46% Knight of Cups (2016) "Knight of Cups becomes the very thing it claims to satirise, a gilded chalice that reveals itself to be an entirely empty vessel. " ‐ The List
Posted May 4, 2016
4/5 95% The Jungle Book (2016) "Favreau has achieved the near impossible, managing to stay true to both Kipling's tales and Disney's revered 1967 animation, while offering something entirely new. " ‐ The List
Posted Apr 11, 2016
4/5 65% Nasty Baby (2015) "Silva succeeds in keeping his characters sympathetic and their relationships honest, if unconventional, and his approach is bolstered by some terrific performances. " ‐ The List
Posted Apr 4, 2016
4/5 62% Black Mountain Poets "The cast is brilliant across the board, particularly Richard Elis as the uber-Welsh Gareth, but Black Mountain Poets belongs to Lowe and Wells. " ‐ The List
Posted Mar 29, 2016
4/5 100% Court (2015) "Court is a masterful piece of social cinema that rewards audience investment and marks Tamhane out as a filmmaker to watch. " ‐ The List
Posted Mar 21, 2016
2/5 70% The Ones Below (2016) "Aims for the claustrophobic chills of Rosemary's Baby, but comes closer to the outlandish bunny boiler camp of Fatal Attraction. " ‐ The List
Posted Mar 7, 2016
4/5 96% The Survivalist "The Survivalist is a stunning, thought-provoking film that, despite its bleak focus, has a surprisingly uplifting message about the power of human connection. " ‐ The List

Posted Jan 25, 2016
3/5 60% Joy (2015) "It's a fascinating story but, as a film, lacks focus and momentum, playing more like a creative experiment than a finished product. " ‐ The List

5/5 89% When Harry Met Sally (1989) "While it may be packed with whip-smart, endlessly quotable dialogue and laugh-out-loud moments, its enduring popularity undoubtedly stems from the fact that it has genuine heart. " ‐ The List
Posted Dec 7, 2015
3/5 100% All About Them (A Trois, On Y Va) "Part human drama, part comedy of errors, All About Them stays on the right side of Carry On-style farce thanks to the authenticity of its characters. " ‐ The List
Posted Nov 23, 2015
4/5 92% The Fear Of 13 "Yarris was at the mercy of a faceless machine he could not understand, let alone control. Now, over 30 years since his arrest, Sington's captivating, compelling film offers him the most poetic of justice. " ‐ The List
Posted Nov 9, 2015

Posted Oct 12, 2015
5/5 73% Suffragette (2015) "Suffragette is a piece of living history, a celebration of how far we've come but also a stark reminder that, despite the best efforts of these pioneering women, we still have some distance left to go. " ‐ The List
Posted Oct 7, 2015
3/5 72% The Nightmare (2015) "The experiences and stories - which have all been gathered from the US and UK - are extremely similar and, while initially frightening, the effect is quickly eroded by repetition. " ‐ The List

Posted Sep 2, 2015

Posted Aug 28, 2015
2/5 13% Sinister 2 (2015) "The boogeyman is terrifying in prospect - and in glimpses - but so much screen-time is given to his looming bulk that he is divested of all his fear factor. " ‐ The List
Posted Aug 21, 2015
5/5 80% War Book "There is not a single weak link amongst the impressive ensemble cast, who keep up with Thorne's powerful dialogue as it ricochets around the room with increasing tempo. " ‐ The List
Posted Aug 3, 2015
3/5 93% The Gift (2015) "Gender stereotyping aside, The Gift is an otherwise accomplished debut feature with far more ambition than standard genre fare. " ‐ The List

Posted Jul 27, 2015
2/5 19% Self/less (2015) "A body swap thriller whose high-minded ambition is overwhelmed by a preposterous story and a reliance on action clich├ęs. " ‐ The List

Posted Jun 1, 2015
3/5 94% Bai ri yan huo (Black Coal, Thin Ice) (2015) "Plays like a straightforward police procedural, buoyed by the intense dynamic between Fan and Gwei and a visual inventiveness that makes far more of an impact than its story. " ‐ The List
