T-Meter Title | Year
96% Argo (2012) A smart, gripping thriller and further proof that Ben Affleck is as adept behind the camera as he is in front of it. - Film4 EDIT

51% White House Down (2013) Whether or not you enjoy this film depends entirely on whether you judge it to be po-faced or parody. If you believe it's the former, you'll probably hate it. If you believe it's the latter, you'll have an absolute blast. - Film4 EDIT

50% Pain & Gain (2013) The uneasy blend of comedy and ultra-violence will turn some viewers off but, if you can stomach it, you may find yourself curiously entertained. - Film4 EDIT

48% We're The Millers (2013) Excessive improvisation and scrappy plotting let down an able cast. - Film4 EDIT

42% Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters (2013) The tween and teen target audience will no doubt lap Sea Of Monsters up, but adults will be disappointed by its feeble protagonist and uninvolving plot. - Film4 EDIT

83% This Is the End (2013) Loads funnier - and smarter - than it sounds on paper, and well worth watching for the unflinching Hollywood satire, even if you're sick of Apatow-esque bromantic comedies. - Film4 EDIT

66% World War Z (2013) Itbecomes increasingly difficult to pin any message at all on Marc Forster's astonishingly expensive and extensively re-written (and re-shot) blockbuster. And you know what? I didn't mind in the least. - Film4 EDIT

81% Something in the Air (2013) What ultimately makes this film stand out is the way it captures the painful dawning experienced by all human beings that neither youth - nor you - are eternal. - Film4 EDIT

88% Bernie (2012) A sweet, dark, funny true-crime story with a dream cast - and that includes the real-life residents of the town of Carthage, Texas. - Film4 EDIT

75% Love Is All You Need (2013) While it's always commendable when filmmakers attempt to broach new territory, this disappointingly slight rom-com does not live up to director Susanne Bier and writer Anders Thomas Jensen's more serious work. - Film4 EDIT

10% The Host (2013) The central premise of The Host is fundamentally unfilmable and, hence, probably shouldn't have been filmed. - Film4 EDIT

76% A Late Quartet (2012) A pathos-laden chamber piece poignantly played by an ensemble of actors at the peak of their powers. - Film4 EDIT

41% Dark Skies (2013) Somehow this mishmash of borrowed ideas all comes together to create an unexpectedly solid genre movie. - Film4 EDIT

4.5/5 84% The Hunger Games (2012) An intelligent, thrill-quenching blend of sci-fi and satire introducing a welcome addition to the woefully small canon of admirable action heroines. Bring on round two! - Film4 EDIT

2/6 52% Introducing the Dwights (2007) Jean Dwight (Brenda Blethyn) is perhaps the most overbearing, self-obsessed and irritating matriarchal big screen figure since Norman Bates' mum in 'Psycho'. - Time Out EDIT
