Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 76% The Limehouse Golem (2017) Peer through the thick London fog and you'll find a feminist film lurking.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 92% Tour De Pharmacy (2017) Someone hand Samberg and Miller the yellow jersey immediately.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

2/5 18% Baywatch (2017) Ultimately, this film should have been left in the beach hut, and certainly not encouraged to step on to the sand.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

3/5 53% City of Tiny Lights (2016) A decent vehicle for Ahmed to show why he's considered one of Britain's most interesting young stars.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

2/5 57% Trespass Against Us (2017) A rickety curio that wavers between whimsy and dour melodrama, it drifts aimlessly, achieving very little - much like the Anglo-Irish vagabonds the film revolves around.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 95% Prevenge (2017) Serving as an allegory on post- and antenatal depression, Prevenge is a kaleidoscope of violence and humour, a tense tale that wickedly extracts laughs through the banality of its suburban setting.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

2/5 43% Gold (2017) Gold is simply a dull chore steeped in strike-it-rich clichés, a flaccid tale of capitalist cat-and-mouse that shirks the opportunity to say anything remotely of interest.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

3/5 77% A Street Cat Named Bob (2016) Bob powers the film's cuteness quotient and extracts laughs with whisker-fine precision.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

2/5 67% Brotherhood (2016) Few if any likely to include their performances here on their CV, which veer from pantomime to self-parodically flat-pack basic.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

3/5 85% The Meddler (2016) Arriving under the radar, The Meddler is a surprise treat. Go see it with your mother.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

1/5 24% The Silent Storm (2014) Stultifyingly vapid.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted May 20, 2016
2/5 72% A Hologram for the King (2016) This is a whimsical comedy that falls through the memory like sand through your hand.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted May 19, 2016
3/5 92% I, Daniel Blake (2017) While it too often sands the complications off what you sense should feel like an uncomfortably splintery issue, in its best moments, it's a quietly fearsome piece of drama.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted May 12, 2016
3/5 90% Green Room (2016) A pulverising piece of Seventies-style grindhouse exploitation, stitched together from the body parts of John Boorman's classic Deliverance and John Carpenter's siege thriller Assault on Precinct 13.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted May 12, 2016
3/5 72% The Ones Below (2016) All in all, The Ones Below is a creepy genre exercise by a craftsman finding his groove.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2016
4/5 82% Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015) All this may sound horrendously twee on paper. But on film, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is thoughtful and tender, bursting with mordant humour and energetic camerawork, and acted with merciful intelligence.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

3/5 53% Escobar: Paradise Lost (2015) Every time del Toro's onscreen, you're so blown away that you end up angry at what might have been.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2015
2/5 49% 5 Flights Up (2015) Ruth & Alex is a drama without drama: the cinematic equivalent of a barbiturate. Freeman and Keaton deserve better material.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2015
2/5 76% 13 Minutes (Elser) (2017) Not only is the film too long - ironic given its title - but everything within it is spelt out in bold capital letters.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2015
3/5 76% The Connection (2015) The Connection is a genre exercise by a director finding his feet - slick, sure, but lacking Heat's taut set pieces and the De Niro-Pacino star wattage.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted May 28, 2015
4/5 65% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) Funnier and sleeker than Pitch Perfect, this is a rare sequel that hits all the right notes.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted May 14, 2015
3/5 77% Big Game (2015) Yes, the film's clunky. Yes, it's dumb. But it's fashioned with such charm that it's also lovable, poignant and funny - one scene paying homage to ET had me in stitches.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 98% Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck (2015) Morgen manages to stay clear of hagiography, instead compiling an exhilarating piece of film-making - one that's fully in keeping with Cobain's virtuosity.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2015
93% The Sting (1973) The Sting remains the definitive con artist comedy: as irresistible and ingenious as the scheme that hooks in Doyle.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2015
4/5 95% 20,000 Days on Earth (2014) It's more than just a screen biography: it's a meditation on an artist's mythology and creative spirit.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2014
3/5 78% Grand Piano (2014) If you're willing to suspend your disbelief, this is a taut and inventive exercise in style over substance.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2014
2/5 46% Postman Pat: The Movie (2014) Postman Pat: the Movie doesn't get a stamp of approval.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted May 22, 2014
2/5 56% The Bourne Legacy (2012) If this is Bourne's legacy, he should amend his will.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
