T-Meter Title | Year
2/5 15% Robin Hood (2018) Robin is one note and the twist at the end - that, surprising no one, allows for the potential of a sequel - can be seen coming a mile off. - Metro (UK) EDIT

4/5 99% Eighth Grade (2018) Eighth Grade reminds us that teenage girls and Kayla's story are valid, and we should all listen a little more closely. - Metro (UK) EDIT

3/5 23% Dark Phoenix (2019) Maybe we would have been better off having a Dark Phoenix film a la Logan, one that doesn't rely on older characters and would have opened up further the world of Jean, Scott and their friends. - Metro (UK) EDIT

3/5 84% Ad Astra (2019) Brad Pitt brings empathy and an awards-worthy to a slow burn drama that asks us to care about another man and his daddy issues but ultimately leaves you feeling cold. - Metro (UK) EDIT

3 40% Justice League (2017) Ezra Miller and Wonder Woman can only do so much to save a film of stilted dialogue, bad direction, inexplicable angles and a plot that quite frankly is boring. - Metro (UK) EDIT

4 97% The Hate U Give (2018) It is at times tough to watch and never shies away from showing other points of view, often using black comedy to do so - Metro (UK) EDIT

3 61% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) What follows is a story that any passing Queen fan already knows, and the problem arises in that the script never delves deep enough to escape what is essentially a Wikipedia entry. - Metro (UK) EDIT

4/5 72% Ready Player One (2018) A thrilling joy ride that encompasses every Spielberg trope you can think of and throws them back out at you through some of the most gorgeous scenes you may see on screen all year. - Metro (UK) EDIT

4/5 60% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) Where Murder On The Orient Express succeeds is in Branagh's fast pacing and the suspense he maintains throughout; each suspect is given screen time, and each has a plausible reason for murder, but none of them are lingered on for too long. - Metro (UK) EDIT

2/5 68% Breathe (2017) The problem with Serkis' film is that it is too long and at times too dull, and the moments where Serkis is so desperate to make the audience cry are so obvious that instead of reaching for the tissues you roll your eyes. - Metro (UK) EDIT

5/5 92% Good Time (2017) The film never lets up, pushing and pushing and pushing the viewer into Connie's deeply messed up world. - Metro (UK) EDIT

84% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) ... the film is mostly a triumph - heavy on the action, light on the romance, and one of the best heroines to come out of the big screen in 2016. - Metro (UK) EDIT

91% La La Land (2016) La La Land is actually a love story for jazz, with a leading male character who likes to mansplain very loudly and intently whenever he gets the chance about just how important jazz music is and how he will be the saviour jazz music needs. - Metro (UK) EDIT

87% Jackie (2016) It's an intensity that never lets up - you have to take your moments to stop and remember to inhale and exhale when you can. But that intensity is also to the film's detriment, as at no point does it allow warmth to seep in. - Metro (UK) EDIT

5/5 89% Loving (2016) Based on the true story of Loving v. Virginia, a landmark civil rights decision, the film is a story of two halves. - Metro (UK) EDIT

3/5 92% Fences (2016) Balancing the joys of the script that turned Wilson's play into a multi award-winning juggernaut with a desire to adapt such a play for Hollywood is a fine line, but sadly it is one that Denzel is unable to straddle. - Metro (UK) EDIT

93% Hidden Figures (2017) Hidden Figures is a story of friendship and inspiration and a reminder to have faith in your abilities - and it's also two hours of guaranteed empowerment that will blast you straight towards your goals. - Metro (UK) EDIT
