Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
5/10 61% Allied (2016) Allied wants to be a classic tale of war, deception and doomed love, but despite the calibre of all involved, it's simply a fitfully entertaining but oddly-plotted affair.‐ Starburst

8/10 100% Orange Sunshine (2016) Orange Sunshine is a riveting documentary with an exciting, thought-provoking, tragic and hopeful story to tell. Sit back and enjoy the vibe.‐ Starburst

4/10 46% Dog Eat Dog (2016) Unfortunately, all Dog Eat Dog reveals is a group of talented people with their best work long behind them.‐ Starburst

6/10 94% Prevenge (2017) While perhaps serious in some of what it has to say about the pregnancy experience, as well as the state of the world we live in, Prevenge mostly sticks to dark laughs and does it well.‐ Starburst

6/10 81% Nocturama (2016) Despite its contemporary relevance, it's a shame this didn't dig deeper and tackle the more precise, pressing issues France (and the rest of Europe) faces today.‐ Starburst

8/10 47% It's Only the End of the World (Juste la fin du monde) (2016) Dolan offers his cast no way of hiding, deploying a consistent set of stylistic techniques to enhance all these gut-wrenching performances.‐ Starburst

9/10 57% Trespass Against Us (2017) It all boils down to the complicated relationships of fathers and sons, but with some riveting action and heart-tugging drama, Trespass Against Us ends up as thrilling must-see.‐ Starburst

8/10 79% American Honey (2016) American Honey will frustrate some but as a time capsule and ode to youthful energy, it's priceless.‐ Starburst

7/10 83% Una (2016) What could have been a sensationalist ripped-from-the-headlines expose of a disturbing relationship is handled tensely, but sensitively.‐ Starburst

7/10 94% The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016) Led by two fantastic lead performances, The Handmaiden is smart, sadistic and sexy as hell.‐ Starburst

8/10 87% A Monster Calls (2017) Despite its fantastical elements and occasionally obvious plot points, it is a film about emotional truths and an admirable attempt to inject some real heart and soul into a YA adaptation. And not even a love triangle in sight.‐ Starburst

6/10 74% Trolls (2016) If the exasperating first half of this film based on the cutesy toy range is a chore to get through, it might just thaw some stone cold hearts by the time Justin Timberlake starts belting out tunes by the end.‐ Starburst

6/10 100% A Dark Song (2016) A Dark Song is magic for much of its running time, but much like its protagonist's willingness to have ceremonial sex with a madman, it loses the plot in its final scenes.‐ Starburst

6/10 45% King Cobra (2016) King Cobra isn't all fun and filth, but it could certainly be accused of promoting some pretty negative stereotypes.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Oct 7, 2016
6/10 94% The Red Turtle (La tortue rouge) (2017) There's no doubt that The Red Turtle is charming and enchanting, but it's muted tone, leisurely pace and jarring lack of dialogue in the last half make for a less emotive conclusion than the simple story could have earned.‐ Starburst

4/10 No Score Yet Wild (2016) While it's definitely not a tame film, Wild could certainly have done with being a little more controlled.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Oct 7, 2016
7/10 89% Indivisible (Indivisibili) (2016) Indivisible could be depressing, and it certainly has moments of melodrama, but it is also life-affirming, hopeful and above all a touching story of sisterhood under strain. ‐ Starburst

9/10 61% Down Under (2016) If this film is anything to go by, [Australians] are living with exactly the same racial tensions and dealing with the same level of ignorance as we are. But it's a lot bloody easier to laugh about it when it's 10,000 miles away.‐ Starburst

8/10 87% Pete's Dragon (2016) Pete's Dragon is stuffed full of heart, wild emotion and an overflowing love of nature.‐ Starburst

8/10 49% Hardcore Henry (2016) It might give some a hard-core headache, but Hardcore Henry is an ultra-violent blast of fresh air.‐ Starburst

8/10 83% The Wave (Bolgen) (2016) The cast and director Roar Uthaug all handle the material brilliantly, so it's a shame that the script is quite so slavish to generic formula. However, there is an excellent swerve in the dark to watch out for late in the game.‐ Starburst

6/10 98% Zootopia (2016) A wild ride with some noir-ish undertones, Zootropolis packs in plenty to keep the whole family entertained.‐ Starburst

6/10 87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) Not messing too much with the formula or characters that made Peanuts famous, Blue Sky have played it very safe and pretty damn smart keeping most of the charm of Schulz's original work.‐ Starburst

8/10 70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) Mockingjay Part 2 is a fittingly dark end to the Hunger Games franchise, not as exciting perhaps as Catching Fire, but more politically charged.‐ Starburst

6/10 77% Goosebumps (2015) Goosebumps is no Gremlins, but for some of the running time it does have a bit of a classic '80s feel about it.‐ Starburst

8/10 86% Steve Jobs (2015) Steve Jobs is an impressive feat; it might not fulfill tech geeks' desires to see more of the machines, but it certainly makes the man behind Apple a fascinatingly flawed character who is tricky to love, but very easy to watch.‐ Starburst

8/10 96% The Survivalist (2015) A stark, but brilliant debut.‐ Starburst

9/10 90% Green Room (2016) So nerve-shredding, it will make your whole body hurt.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2015
7/10 90% (T)ERROR (2015) (T)error slightly over-simplifies the idea of who is right and wrong by the end. Still, it's a riveting look below the surface of law enforcement.‐ Starburst

9/10 62% Truth (2015) With hints of both All the President's Men and Good Night and Good Luck, Truth steps in the footsteps of some brilliant films where journalists are the righteous heroes.‐ Starburst

8/10 74% Youth (2015) Sorrentino knows exactly where he's heading and through all the absurd splashes of humour, delivers an incredibly poignant and invigorating ending.‐ Starburst

8/10 89% The Invitation (2016) If you choose to accept The Invitation, you won't regret it.‐ Starburst

5/10 82% Observance (2015) Observance implores you to continue watching, but doesn't quite fully reward its audience for doing so.‐ Starburst

6/10 57% Partisan (2015) Partisan is an impressive feature debut; both expertly condemning its paternalistic society, but sadly lacking in a single interesting female character to take a stand to Cassel's complex figure.‐ Starburst

8/10 91% The Witch (2016) The Witch is expertly directed with a hysterical score, beautiful production design and wicked performances from its central cast.‐ Starburst

3/10 40% Beeba Boys (2015) With a highly flawed script full of completely unlikeable characters, Beeba Boys just repeatedly misses the mark.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2015
10/10 91% Beasts of No Nation (2015) While Beasts of No Nation is far from easy viewing, it is powerful, urgent and heartbreaking filmmaking and a stark reminder of how boys become beasts in a war without end.‐ Starburst

5/10 27% Pan (2015) Lively, but flawed.‐ Starburst

9/10 93% Ex Machina (2015) Compelling, claustrophobic, cutting edge and clever, Ex Machina is as smart and satisfying as science fiction gets.‐ Starburst
