Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 85% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) The script is tight and fast-paced and the film really benefits from the new setting, but really it's the cast that brings the magic back. ‐ SciFiNow

3/5 80% Personal Shopper (2017) Stewart is easily the best thing about Personal Shopper, playing a woman who is both terrified and weirdly thrilled at the realisation that she has somehow acquired a stalker. ‐ SciFiNow

3/5 60% iBoy (2017) [The] positives aren't really enough to make iBoy feel like much more than another teen sci-fi. It's a thrill ride up to a point, but there are many films that do what it's doing better and with more heart.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 74% The White King (2017) The cast of politically diverse and divisive characters offer a very human look at both sides of the mechanics of a dictatorship, from the people constantly being affected by it to the people making it happen.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 96% Moana (2016) It's a basic Point-A-to-Point-B adventure film, but with so much life, energy and emotion. It's perfectly cast, and the animation -- particularly the parts with the ocean in them, which is almost all of it -- is jaw dropping.‐ SciFiNow

3/5 74% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Fantastic Beasts may be entertaining and often mesmerising but, ultimately and obviously, it's not Harry Potter.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 89% Doctor Strange (2016) Two hours of Strange being confused at the ins and outs of the Astral Plane would have been just as satisfying as the actual film. This is the new VFX bar to reach.‐ SciFiNow

5/5 69% Swiss Army Man (2016) As well as being thoughtful and honest, Swiss Army Man is just a really good time.‐ SciFiNow

3/5 39% Morgan (2016) Even with the suspiciously strong cast of distinguished character actors, Taylor-Joy is easily one of the film's greatest assets.‐ SciFiNow

3/5 13% 400 Days (2016) What 400 Days does do... is force you to think about how you would handle the situations the crew are faced with. ‐ SciFiNow

5/5 97% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) The artwork and music combined create a viewing experience so immersive that you'll be sad to leave the cinema after the credits (and you won't leave until the credits are over).‐ SciFiNow

4/5 84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) It's big and loud, but also has a heart, which is all we could have asked for.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 74% Ghostbusters (2016) What it basically comes down to, as with most comedy blockbusters, is if you like the cast and the director you'll most likely dig Ghostbusters.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 91% Captain America: Civil War (2016) The film's tone and themes feel a tiny bit darker and a lot more grown-up than usual, but the reaction it provokes is still one of giddy, childlike joy.‐ SciFiNow

2/5 17% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) Winter's War would have really benefited from taking over the empowerment torch. Instead, it's almost two hours' worth of women betraying each other.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) It's claustrophobic, atmospheric, creepy to the extreme, and stays with you for a good while.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 83% Deadpool (2016) Most importantly of all, the film is bloody hilarious.‐ SciFiNow

3/5 15% The 5th Wave (2016) The film still manages to stand out from the cornucopia of other YA sci-fi adaptations, and its successes are largely down to the excellent Moretz in the leading role.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) The Hunger Games is one of those rare instances where a movie series manages to live up to the acclaim of the books, and this final film is thoroughly satisfying in all the right places.‐ SciFiNow

3/5 17% The Last Witch Hunter (2015) What The Last Witch Hunter really has going for it is Vin Diesel. His character isn't particularly layered and he takes few to no risks with how he plays it, but the result is extremely likeable.‐ SciFiNow

3/5 25% Narcopolis (2015) It's obvious a lot of care, time and creative passion went into it. It's a relatively low budget project that does a great job pretending it's not. But behind the aesthetics, there isn't much else.‐ SciFiNow

3/5 46% Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015) It's unlikely The Scorch Trials will be remembered long into the future or make as much of an impact as The Hunger Games has, but it makes for a fun ride.‐ SciFiNow

1/5 17% Pixels (2015) The jokes are rarely funny. Many are actually excruciating.‐ SciFiNow

5/5 82% Ant-Man (2015) It's a heist movie. That's all it is, a fun heist movie with powers and explosions and awesome costumes and ant armies. It's also extremely well directed.‐ SciFiNow

5/5 75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) It's difficult to sit through Age Of Ultron without feeling like a child. It's fun, touching, exciting, funny, enthralling, moving and spectacular, and it makes the fact that it could be Whedon's last MCU adventure even more upsetting.‐ SciFiNow
