Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
6/10 57% Becoming Jane (2007) This is soft and gentle stuff in the mould of the recent Mrs Potter: perfectly pleasing on the eye and ear, but without much real substance to it.‐ Tiscali

6/10 73% Climates (Iklimler) (The Climate) (2006) Everyone should be able to appreciate the beautiful composition of both the sound and vision, but the languid pace may well be the film's chief downfall.‐ Tiscali

2/10 16% Eragon (2006) It's so old-fashioned in sentiment and execution that it just seems out of place in this day and age.‐ Tiscali

5/10 47% The Holiday (2006) The performances of Winslet and Wallach though are a treat and eventually partly save the day in a film that is otherwise far too cute for its own good.‐ Tiscali

8/10 94% Casino Royale (2006) One of the year's most entertaining films.‐ Tiscali

9/10 91% Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (2006) It's not only a masterpiece of character comedy, but of comic timing.‐ Tiscali

7/10 87% The Last King of Scotland (2006) For the large majority of its running time, this is hugely enjoyable stuff.‐ Tiscali

5/10 60% Lower City (Cidade Baixa) (2006) Ultimately let-down by its own sense of self-importance. What begins as an engaging story takes too many melodramatic turns to be really convincing.‐ Tiscali

2/10 86% The Proposition (2005) It is a story that has been told many times before, but never quite as self-indulgently.‐ Tiscali

2/10 34% Imagine Me & You (2006) If this is meant to reflect the contemporary state of the British comedy, then the future does not look good.‐ Tiscali

7/10 48% Harsh Times (2006) It's a gritty affair which won't please everyone, but many will find that it has plenty of interesting things to say about contemporary America.‐ Tiscali

6/10 32% Tristan & Isolde (2006) This is easy on the eye and the brain.‐ Tiscali

6/10 82% Tsotsi (Thug) (2006) All of the main performances are fresh and natural -- notably Presley Chweneyagae in the lead -- and the set design triumphantly conveys a place where nobody would want to live out of choice.‐ Tiscali

8/10 75% Superman Returns (2006) After this, expect a whole new generation to believe a man can fly.‐ Tiscali

5/10 35% The Lake House (2006) A little more action and pace, let alone some explaining of how we are meant to believe any of this, would be more than welcome.‐ Tiscali

7/10 68% A Scanner Darkly (2006) One of America's most interesting directors shows no sign of running out of steam.‐ Tiscali
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2006
7/10 57% Confetti (2006) It looks like it was a lot of fun to make, and it's certainly a lot of fun to watch.‐ Tiscali
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2006
7/10 77% Pierrepoint: The Last Hangman (2007) A peculiarly British and thought-provoking affair.‐ Tiscali
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2006
5/10 40% The Night Listener (2006) While the movie works for a good deal of its running time, it begins to unravel towards the end, and leaves us with a climax that is both dissatisfying and a bit of a con. This is a shame since what has gone before is intriguing and interesting.‐ Tiscali

5/10 74% Cars (2006) It's probably inevitable that a company with a track record as successful and profitable as Pixar's will have the occasional blip.‐ Tiscali

6/10 57% Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (2006) Obstacles are placed in their way on the journey, but these are inevitably overcome and never seem quite as threatening as they might be.‐ Tiscali
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2006
4/10 68% Hard Candy (2006) It doesn't know whether it is a thriller, think-piece or strident social commentary. Because it falls between all three, and fails to really be any of them, the talk surrounding the film is little more than a burst of hot air.‐ Tiscali

5/10 86% Inside Man (2006) While the film can self-referentially namecheck classics of the genre, it fails in comparison to all of them.‐ Tiscali
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2006
6/10 90% Tristram Shandy: A Cock & Bull Story (2005) It's generally rather amusing.‐ Tiscali
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2006
9/10 91% Volver (2006) It's a film that everyone can relate to, and the writer/director should start clearing space in his house for a whole new batch of awards.‐ Tiscali

7/10 89% The Devil and Daniel Johnston (2006) Jeff Feuerzeig's absorbing and frequently mindboggling documentary charts how this American oddball influenced the likes of Nirvana and Sonic Youth, despite having what is very much a naïve style and, sadly, suffering from serious mental issues.‐ Tiscali
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2006
5/10 47% Hoodwinked (2005) As the scenes pass, the laughter dwindles and familiarity breeds unfortunate contempt as the central characters are forced into increasingly unlikely scenarios in the quest for a laugh.‐ Tiscali

6/10 63% Clerks II (2006) Lots of it is really very funny and Smith fans will no doubt be delighted.‐ Tiscali

6/10 73% Sympathy for Lady Vengeance (2005) Despite pulling things together for the finale, it's still hard to feel much sympathy for Lady Vengeance.‐ Tiscali
