Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 93% Hidden Figures (2017) Hidden Figures is engaging, entertaining and enlightening -- but by playing fast and loose with historical fact, it risks blunting some of the story's eye-opening emotional force.‐ The National (UAE)

3/5 35% Live By Night (2017) With veteran cinematographer Robert Richardson behind the lens, the film looks fantastic. The period sets gleam with a dreamlike Hollywood sheen. But more grit could have been poured into the mix. ‐ The National (UAE)

3/5 No Score Yet Solitaire (Mahbas) (2016) This lengthy, dinner table scene forms the movie's claustrophobic centrepiece - the tension and humour steadily ramped, with mature pacing, until an inevitable emotional explosion moves the movie forward to it's final third.‐ The National (UAE)

3.5/5 No Score Yet Halal Love (2016) While the theme may be nothing new, it's the fanciful and funny way writer-director Assad Fouladkar slyly explore a series of interwoven everyday stories -- four couples seeking a love that is, indeed, "halal" -- which breathes fresh life.‐ The National (UAE)

4/5 91% Bridge of Spies (2015) The master of multiplexes certainly found a fantastic tale for his 31st feature.‐ The National (UAE)

3/5 73% Black Mass (2015) What we're left with is a gripping mood piece without a payoff, a film lacking the dramatic or emotional intrigue we associate with mob movies -- and that remain necessary to any film.‐ The National (UAE)

2/5 59% The Intern (2015) The pairing of these two talents should never have been frittered away on such an inconsequential and lightweight conceit.‐ The National (UAE)

1/5 26% Vacation (2015) The silly season of summer sequels and reboots turns up its most barrel-scrapingly bad offerings yet.‐ The National (UAE)

3/5 56% Paper Towns (2015) The lead performances are commendable, there's a genial chemistry between the three male friends and most of the jokes work.‐ The National (UAE)

4/5 87% La Sapienza (2015) Layered with reels of swirling shots of Rome's most beautiful buildings -- all crucially shot from the ground upwards, staring at the heavens-- La Sapienza is visually stunning.‐ The National (UAE)

4/5 72% American Sniper (2015) This film demands to be seen and is rightfully sparking debate -- but doesn't tell the full story.‐ The National (UAE)

4/5 67% Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet (2015) Allow yourself to be swept along with it, don't dig too deep and you will find that it is a genuinely effective combination of words, pictures and music.‐ The National (UAE)
