Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Rogue One is an explosive, brilliant entry into the Star Wars universe. It's a bracing slap in the face, but a bloody fun one to watch.‐ Junkee

73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Jacob, and his interactions with Queenie in particular, give the film the spark it so desperately needs to succeed.‐ Junkee

90% Doctor Strange (2016) The VFX are the best I've seen in any Marvel movie, ever. If you do see Doctor Strange -- and you really ought to -- I recommend seeing it at IMAX.‐ Junkee

84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) Beyond is, above all else, fun to watch; it's a proper Star Trek experience. And it feels profoundly good to say that.‐ Junkee

90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) Grief, anguish, revenge. All of these, when rendered onto the canvas of a well-rounded character, are so much more potent than the sight of a city crashing into another city or a looming CGI spaceship drawing ever nearer to its fatal destination.‐ Junkee

92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) It is a rip-roaring, swashbuckling jaunt through galactic space which will leave you reeling.‐ Junkee

71% Interstellar (2014) I urge you to stop seeking out information on this film, and instead wait until this Thursday and see it, on the biggest screen within reach. You won't be sorry.‐ The Vine

91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) The film is unfailing in its attention to detail, brutally unforgiving in its fan-service, and riddled with genuine moments of exultant joy.‐ The Vine

4.5/5 87% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) The Dark Knight Rises not only realistically tackles the physical and emotional ravages and consequences of a being Batman, but also makes the entire three-film story scintillatingly cyclical.‐ The Vine

72% Prometheus (2012) The film is utterly gorgeous to look at. Every exterior and interior shot looks like a painting, rendered in thick, velvety strokes. The CGI is entirely seamless, and, indeed, minimal considering the subject matter.‐ The Vine

5/5 92% Marvel's The Avengers (2012) The Avengers is one of the greatest superhero films ever made. It's smart, fast, unrelenting fun. An instant, nuanced classic.‐ The Vine

0/5 24% Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011) It's based on a series of truly idiotic novels which, whilst works of an evil marketing genius, are artistic pollutants. Try and avoid getting dragged along to this one.‐ The Vine

4/5 82% Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) It's a fantastic reboot of the franchise; warm, thrilling, and exceedingly human.‐ The Vine

96% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 (2011) I can't think of anything which has made me feel happier or more privileged than this incredible, rich, and infinitely touching body of work. ‐ The Vine

3.5/5 86% X-Men: First Class (2011) X-Men: First Class is a rock-solid piece of storytelling. ‐ The Vine

1.5/5 33% The Hangover Part II (2011) The Hangover: Part II feels more like a Bangkok tourism project pitched at rapey frat boys.‐ The Vine

20% The Rite (2011) It's the cinematic equivalent of a modest, drab meal; you can eat it, but you probably won't enjoy it. Unless you're a priest and you're used to eating that sort of thing.‐ The Vine

87% Rango (2011) It doesn't know what kind of a film it is.‐ The Vine

33% I Am Number Four (2011) More like I AM NUMBER TWO. There. All the cards are now on the table. ‐ The Vine

52% The Next Three Days (2010) A sumptuous study of grief, ineptitude and desperation, and whilst it might run a little long, it's a decidedly brutal and startlingly human film‐ The Vine

4.5/5 78% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010) Deathly Hallows Part 1 is warm without being cloying; frightening without outstaying it's welcome, and it manages to prey on deep-seeded fears with remarkable proficiency.‐ The Vine
