Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1/5 18% CHIPS (2017) I found myself curling over in such a paralysing cringe, my body had to be rolled out of the cinema afterwards like a dented bicycle wheel.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

1/5 44% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) Appears to have been shot by the Hunchback of Notre Dame and edited by a monkey wearing oven gloves.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 100% A Silent Voice (Koe no katachi) (2016) The premise of A Silent Voice may seem modest. But its approach leads an old story down a little-trod, languidly beautiful path.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

2/5 48% Song to Song (2017) Song to Song unfolds in and around the rock scene in Malick's adopted home town of Austin, but you sense it wouldn't be noticeably different if it had been set at a bacon factory or an ice rink.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

2/5 17% The Time of Their Lives (2017) The whole enterprise feels like a ten bob knock-off, or a would-be remake that couldn't nab the rights.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 78% Kong: Skull Island (2017) Imagine Steven Spielberg's The Lost World if it had been written and directed by Gremlins-era Joe Dante.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

3/5 80% Patriots Day (2017) Patriots Day is stirring, well-acted, moving and built with conviction and flair.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 92% Logan (2017) It's something no-one could have expected: a creatively risky superhero movie. And it deserves to pay off.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

3/5 83% The Founder (2017) [A] bright, absorbing biopic ...‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

1/5 35% The Great Wall (2017) One thing The Great Wall gets absolutely right is the walliness, because watching it feels like repeatedly banging your head against one.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

5/5 86% The Lost City of Z (2017) A film as transporting, profound and staggering in its emotional power as anything I've seen in the cinema in years.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

2/5 9% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) Basically, if the leads weren't so clearly just a pair of messy so-and-sos that live for drama, Fifty Shades Darker would be over in three minutes flat.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 91% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) There are around four (great) films' worth of action and jokes here, crammed into a story so streamlined it might have been assembled in the Lockheed wind tunnel.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

3/5 76% T2 Trainspotting (2017) Though the film feeds on its forerunner, it's worthwhile on its own terms.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

3/5 75% Split (2017) This measured, diligently crafted register feels like Shyamalan back on home turf.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

5/5 89% Jackie (2016) This is a cinema of no escape, and few if any actors will have to shoulder the same burden of expressive responsibility this year - yet the never-better Portman simply shines beneath it, giving a performance of mesmeric complexity and commitment.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 95% Endless Poetry (Poesía Sin Fin) (2016) Endless Poetry isn't exactly a painless introduction to the world of Alejandro Jodorowsky. But let's be honest: what is?‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 5, 2017
2/5 17% Assassin's Creed (2016) For everyone who thought Dan Brown's conspiracy novels were just lacking a spot of parkour, Assassin's Creed might be your favourite film of the year. But for the clinically sane 99.9 percent of the rest of us, it's rather less exciting.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

1/5 12% Collateral Beauty (2016) Just when you think the film can't get any more mawkish or fatuous, it always surprises you.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Dec 15, 2016
4/5 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Despite its darker tone, Rogue One feels cosily at home in the Star Wars universe, and is crowded with the kind of imagination-tickling details the franchise thrives on.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

5/5 85% Silence (2017) It's a film full of tight close-ups of hands accepting gifts that comfort, inspire and bring succour to their recipients' souls. That's how we should receive it.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

2/5 61% Snowden (2016) Stone's fixation on the sheer dang manliness of sticking one to the government, even digitally, feels misguided here from the off.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2016
4/5 95% Moana (2016) Brimming over with spectacle and visual inventiveness.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 28, 2016
4/5 61% Allied (2016) This is a film where couples look like a million bucks in direct sunlight and five times that in shadow, and talk in that heightened movie-speak where every line feels like an airborne shuttlecock: playful, arcing, nimbly swatted.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2016
4/5 No Score Yet Too Young to Die (2016) The film's riotous oddness occasionally teeters into a free-for-all, though it retains enough shape for a joke about a parakeet sending a text message to pay off more than an hour after it's set up.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2016
4/5 40% Daguerrotype (Le secret de la chambre noire) (2016) You'll need patience for it to work on you, but all effort's repaid tenfold, thanks to Kurosawa's murmur-soft, immaculate craft and a trio of gorgeous central performances ...‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2016
4/5 73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) As a feat of world-building and character-shaping, it sets an appealing stage.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 12, 2016
2/5 41% 100 Streets (2017) It's never entirely clear why its three unrelated stories are being told in the first place.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2016
4/5 87% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) A fantastically moving and bruising war film that hits you like a raw topside of beef in the face - a kind of primary-coloured Guernica that flourishes on a big screen with a crowd.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

2/5 51% The Accountant (2016) The one equation it never manages to balance is the one that says making a film about Asperger's Syndrome being more or less a superpower equals a rip-roaring and completely non-problematic jape.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2016
5/5 97% Your Name (Kimi No Na Wa.) (2016) Like a landscape shining after heavy rain, it feels like real life with the sharpness, brightness and sensation turned right up.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2016
4/5 100% In This Corner of the World (Kono sekai no katasumi ni) (2016) Confronting the horrors of history head-on can make for cinema that's impossible to shake, but Katabuchi's painterly, introspective film proves a sideways approach can be just as indelible.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 93% Queen of Katwe (2016) We already know from his turn as Martin Luther King Jr in Selma that Oyelowo can be stirring in a statesmanlike role, but here he brings a similar kind of moral conviction to a far humbler underdog character.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2016
3/5 93% I, Daniel Blake (2016) While it too often sands the complications off what you sense should feel like an uncomfortably splintery issue, in its best moments, it's a quietly fearsome piece of drama.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2016
4/5 82% Free Fire (2017) Free Fire is a mad contraption, bristling with bravado and black, sardonic wit.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2016
4/5 63% Storks (2016) After softening you up with whatever the comedic equivalent of a triple somersault with a half pike and double twist is, it lands on its emotional target - we're talking freely trickling tears - with a persuasive and satisfying thud.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2016
1/5 19% Inferno (2016) The one thing that can't be said about Howard's film is that it doesn't do justice to Brown's book: it absolutely does, which is the entire problem, and arguably one that any halfway-faithful adaptation could never avoid.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2016
4/5 91% Southside With You (2016) As a multi-faceted character study - of a couple, a nation, a racial identity - there are surprises around every corner.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2016
2/5 64% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) It's another flick through a familiar and by-now bulging scrapbook, but it leaves you craving less - and more.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2016
3/5 95% The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years (2016) The phenomenon of their live appearances - not just the concerts themselves, but the cheeky press-conference preludes, and the hysterical, garment-rending fallout - itself defines the era with a spiky precision.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2016
2/5 35% Blair Witch (2016) Blair Witch styles itself as a love-letter, but it's pure transcription.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2016
3/5 82% A United Kingdom (2017) Stirring, heartstring-strumming stuff ... a chapter of history that rewards a close reading.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2016
2/5 57% The Journey (2016) The Journey is an apocryphal drama about the Northern Irish peace process, and makes its subject look like a methodical tootle around the block by comparison.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2016
5/5 46% The Bad Batch (2017) It's the type of film that, whatever time of day you watch it, makes it feel like half past two in the morning.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2016
3/5 25% Ben-Hur (2016) Call it wholemeal bread and circuses - an odd diet of sincerity and spectacle that nonetheless hits some kind of spot.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2016
4/5 73% Nocturnal Animals (2016) Everything that works in Nocturnal Animals is intoxicating, provocative, delicious - and happily, so is everything that doesn't.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2016
5/5 94% Arrival (2016) Beautiful, provocative allegory that can bump your whole worldview off balance. ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2016
4/5 59% The Light Between Oceans (2016) Fassbender and Vikander explore their characters' various thorny moral quandaries and shifting states of mind in breath-catching depth, drilling down through the plot's melodramatic crust to the swirling ethical magma underneath.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2016
5/5 93% La La Land (2016) It has its head in the stars, and for a little over two wonderstruck hours, it lifts you up there too.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2016
2/5 60% War Dogs (2016) The satire hits with powder-puff force thanks largely to the film's ruinous lack of moral shading around David and Efraim's exploits.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
