T-Meter Title | Year
3/5 51% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) The Rise Of Skywalker is a mostly satisfying spectacle -- it's fun, entertaining, visually dazzling and, yes, emotional in parts, too. But as the grand finale of the Skywalker Saga, it falls somewhat short of the mark. - Den of Geek EDIT

5/5 97% Knives Out (2019) With an energised Johnson orchestrating an enthusiastic group of actors and a crew that's acing it on almost every level, it seems like cutting loose was exactly the right road to take. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 77% Frozen II (2019) Frozen 2 had some mighty big snow boots to fill, and it mostly manages it with bags of style, charm and positive messages. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 92% Ford v Ferrari (2019) It's an energetic effort from one of the most underrated and consistent directors working today -- it might not end up nabbing Mangold any trophies, but it's a winning addition to his already impressive achievements. - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 70% Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Does the film as a whole match the giddy heights of James Cameron's first two chapters? The short answer is no. But is it the best Terminator sequel since Judgment Day? Granted, the competition hasn't exactly been fierce, but yes, yes it is. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 68% Joker (2019) The movie as a whole doesn't quite match up to the brilliance of Phoenix's powerhouse performance. Still, it's not far off: thrilling and unsettling in equal measure, Joker is a film that thrives on the edge -- and that's what makes it so compelling. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 83% Ad Astra (2019) This is laudable stuff: clever sci-fi that's chock-full of big ideas and human drama, painted on a huge canvas with every artistic department firing on all cylinders. Never mind to the stars -- get thee to a cinema. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) It's a proper, unashamed action blockbuster that more than lives up to its brilliantly bonkers Japanese title Wild Speed: Super Combo, and it has a much bigger sense of humour than previous outings, too. Put simply, it's a hell of a lot of fun. - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 52% The Lion King (2019) This new Lion King is still enjoyable -- especially for those who are new to the story -- and its staggering visual achievements should rightly be celebrated. But for anyone who's seen and loved the original animation, it inevitably suffers by comparison. - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 57% Brightburn (2019) The film doesn't quite deliver on its potential. But as a pacey, gruesome horror romp that'll have you wincing in all the right places, Brightburn just about takes flight. - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 57% Aladdin (2019) Although Ritchie's film hews extremely close to the colourful aesthetics of Disney's classic 'toon, as well as hitting all the same story beats, it does at least attempt to freshen things up. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 90% John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019) The film incredibly manages to up the action ante -- no mean feat given the blistering set-pieces of the first two films -- and dishes up a series of increasingly jaw-dropping stunts that are, as always, captured operatically. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 72% Interstellar (2014) Interstellar contains its fair share of heart-in-mouth moments, the previously untapped corners of space providing ample opportunity to mine fresh spectacle. - SFX Magazine EDIT

4/5 72% Interstellar (2014) Nolan reaches for the stars in spectacular fashion, delivering a mesmerising sci-fi epic that, despite a testing running time and few too many flights of fancy, is grounded by an on-form McConaughey. - Total Film EDIT

4/5 90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) A sequel that - narratively and visually - sets the standard for its summer-movie stablemates. - Total Film EDIT

2/5 17% Plastic (2014) Hampered by thoroughly unlikeable characters that not even its talented young cast (Ed Speleers, Will Poulter, Alfie Allen) can make you root for. - Total Film EDIT

3/5 18% The Last Days On Mars (2013) Manages to break free from its low-budget limitations but is hamstrung by its own love of the genre. - Total Film EDIT

4/5 48% RoboCop (2014) Taking the original and successfully transplanting it into an ambitious new world, José Padilha's english-language debut is an exciting, pacey and thoughtful sci-fi actioner. - Total Film EDIT

4/5 96% Argo (2012) Combining laughs and thrills with plenty of verve, Ben Affleck continues his smart directorial career with a stylish, gripping hostage drama. - Total Film EDIT

3/5 30% Red Lights (2012) A starry cast, curious premise and well-crafted shocks make for an ambitious thriller that ekes - and eeks - out the tension to its iffy finale. - Total Film EDIT

4/5 96% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 (2011) Fusing spectacle and emotion into a thrilling final chapter, director David Yates ensures that the series goes out with a bang. Finales don't come much grander than this. - Total Film EDIT

4/5 81% Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011) Bigger and better than the original, Panda 2 skilfully avoids the curse of the sequel with wit, flair and a 3D paw to the face. - Total Film EDIT

3/5 49% No Strings Attached (2011) A none-too-challenging romcom saved from obscurity by a kooky supporting cast, smutty one-liners and Portman flaunting her funny side. - Total Film EDIT

1/5 No Score Yet Fred: The Movie (2010) Even young fans of the online shorts will find the concept stretched perilously thin. And if your eardrums don't break, your spirit certainly will. - Total Film EDIT

4/5 79% Max Manus: Man of War (2010) Bandidas directors Joachim Roenning and Espen Sandberg employ impressive production values and a blockbuster sensibility here, nailing the suspense. - Total Film EDIT
