Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 70% Aquaman (2018) Director James Wan (Insidious, The Conjuring, Saw) has brought a very particular vision to the project and it's undoubtedly a brazenly idiosyncratic take on a superhero movie.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 100% Rosie (2018) The acting across the board is flawless, lending an unshakable feeling of realism to the film.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 29% Venom (2018) However, despite it's many flaws, the overarching impression of Venom is positive. It's undeniably a lot of fun and is at its best when it leans in to its offbeat sense of humour.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2/5 23% Mile 22 (2018) It's the kind of movie that could have been a guilty pleasure but ends up being just not very good.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2/5 24% Luis and The Aliens (2018) A strangely flat, uninspired animated comedy.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 57% Hotel Artemis (2018) Visually it's a treat, with particular glee to be found in the slick, technologically advanced medical equipment and fully fleshed out world of the hotel.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 93% First Reformed (2018) First Reformed is not for the faint hearted, but this raw, blistering, bleak and uncompromising drama raises important questions about faith and morality.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 100% Leave No Trace (2018) While the meandering pace, which doesn't create any sense of urgency, may be a bit slow for some viewers, this is a richly drawn and rewarding film that stays with you.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 76% In the Fade (Aus dem Nichts) (2017) In the Fade is a moving, almost flawless - the bombers and defence lawyer are thinly drawn...‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 100% Citizen Lane (2018) It's a format that could have come across as jarring on screen, but O'Sullivan has expertly assembled the jigsaw puzzle of Lane's life and achievements without missing a piece. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 83% Deadpool 2 (2018) It's not often a sequel surpasses its predecessor, but Deadpool 2 improves on the original in pretty much every way; packing in funnier jokes, better characters, and even some genuinely touching moments.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Although the action can feel at times curiously low-stakes, Solo: A Star Wars Story is an all-round diverting foray into a galaxy, far, far away which doesn't take itself too seriously.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2.25/5 38% Gringo (2018) An impressively strong cast can't save this convoluted, tonally uneven action-comedy from descending into mindless chaos.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2018
3.5/5 49% Downsizing (2017) Despite the bloated running time and the sometimes unnerving tonal jumps, Downsizing is an ambitious, frequently funny, intricately detailed movie that is, for the most part, entertaining and thought provoking.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 97% Coco (2017) Pixar's latest offering Coco is a breath of fresh air in the animated movie universe.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2018
4/5 31% Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) It may all sound exceedingly absurd, and it is, but Pitch Perfect 3 zips along for a snappy hour-and-a-half and rarely falters. Rebel Wilson is on buoyant form and her pithy gags are as fresh as ever.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) There are plenty of genuine lols, thrilling action sequences, including one truly excellent fight scene with Dwayne Johnson who was made to play a video game character, and even some truly touching moments.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2017
4/5 80% The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) As excellent as the supporting cast are, this is Dan Stevens' film, and he portrays Dickens as a restless ball of creative energy, toing and froing around London with wildly eccentric charm.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2.5/5 63% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) While it looks enchanting, with a lush soundtrack to match, Goodbye Christopher Robin ultimately fails to get under the skin of these characters. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2017
42% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) Not even the considerable combined talents of Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds can save this uninspired crime caper that harks back to old-school buddy action comedies, but with none of the charm.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2017
3.5/5 45% Everything, Everything (2017) The irresistible chemistry between the two leads will have many audience members reminiscing about, or yearning for, their first love.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2017
5/5 92% Dunkirk (2017) Christopher Nolan's relentlessly tense historical epic Dunkirk is a war movie like no other, a gripping, edge-of-your-seat thriller than doesn't give you a moment to catch your breath.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2017
4/5 79% The Beguiled (2017) Sofia Coppola's gorgeously filmed, stiflingly atmospheric reimagining of the American Civil War-era drama The Beguiled is fascinating, intoxicating and darkly amusing, with a subtle undercurrent of menace.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 43% Halal Daddy (2017) A slight plot doesn't hinder Conor McDermottroe's feelgood culture clash comedy which delivers heart and sincerity in spades.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
1.5/5 19% The Shack (2017) Based on William Paul Young's best-selling 2007 novel, this endlessly earnest but ultimately unconvincing film serves up plenty of cheese with little depth.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2017
2/5 17% Baywatch (2017) Baywatch, the big-screen reboot of the hugely popular 90s TV show, dials up the raunch-factor with piles of gross-out jokes and lingering shots of impeccably honed limbs, but still remains peculiarly limp and lifeless.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted May 24, 2017
1.5/5 31% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) Guy Ritchie's reimagining of the King Arthur legend manages to be both action-packed and yet utterly mind-numbing, with a two-hour running time that feels endless.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 76% Kong: Skull Island (2017) Do we really need another Kong movie is probably the question you're asking yourself right now, but for a big-screen reboot, Jordan Vogt Roberts has managed to do the impossible -- make it seem fresh and relevant to today.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 98% Moonlight (2016) Equal parts poignant and heartening, this is a unique and uniquely told story that deserves to be seen.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2017
2/5 44% Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk (2016) Oscar-winning director Ang Lee's latest film aims to shine a light on the hypocrisy faced by returning war veterans in America, but it falters in tone and emotional impact.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2017
4/5 85% Lion (2016) A carefully grafted and artfully conceived big-screen adaptation of a truly astonishing story which is both a tearjerker and a crowd-pleaser, without being a sell-out.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2017
5/5 96% Manchester by the Sea (2016) Manchester by the Sea manages to do the seemingly impossible. It is a deeply moving study of coping with abject grief, yet it is not profoundly grim.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jan 10, 2017
3.5/5 83% Silence (2017) Despite any reservations about the central message, Silence is undeniably a lushly-realised and beautifully acted piece of work which is sure to resonate with many.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 14% Collateral Beauty (2016) At any other time of year Collateral Beauty's appeal would be lost, but in the midst of the holiday season, its guilty pleasure viewing if you want to laugh, cry and generally feel.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2/5 38% Why Him? (2016) Why him? More like Why Me?‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2016
3/5 77% A Street Cat Named Bob (2016) Making a film about the redemptive relationship between one man and his cat was never going to be easy, but this heart-warming tale hits some purrfectly poignant notes (sorry).‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2016
4/5 93% Queen of Katwe (2016) Queen of Katwe is notable not only for being an utterly gripping story about playing chess, which can be decidedly uncinematic; but also for being joyfully uplifting, without ever feeling forced.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2016
2.5/5 23% Inferno (2016) Inferno is a relatively diverting, well-shot piece of work that manages to keep interest levels high for the two-hour running time.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2016
3/5 65% Storks (2016) It may not ever scale the heights of the brilliant Lego Movie, but Storks is a better-than-average family comedy that has enough to keep kids and adults entertained.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2016
3.5/5 60% War Dogs (2016) Phillips has injected War Dogs with plenty of suspense and hilarity to keep you interested, and you can't help but root for these plucky little fish trying to navigate a murky ocean.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2016
2.5/5 10% The Forest (2016) The eminently watchable Natalie Dormer is front and centre in the new psychological horror from first-time director Jason Zada, but you can't help but think that the actress deserved better.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2016
5/5 94% Carol (2015) Carol is a sensuous, enchanting piece of work which vividly and realistically recreates the 1950s in American in a new way -- never seeming twee or idealised.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2016
2.5/5 55% The Dressmaker (2016) The Dressmaker is a visual feast -- contrasting a dreary rural Australian town with outrageous couture costumes -- but it's let down by an inflated running time and confused tone.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2016
2/5 46% Knight of Cups (2016) As Rick muses mournfully to himself, "Where did I go wrong?" it's hard for the viewer not to ask the same question of Malick.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2016
2.5/5 16% Friend Request (2017) Friend Request is an above average social media themed horror movie that entertains throughout, with enough jump scares to keep your heartbeat racing, and a few unintentionally funny moments thrown in for good measure.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2016
4/5 97% Love & Friendship (2016) This is about as far from a typical Jane Austen adaptation as you can imagine possible, and only serves to highlight the writer's sharp wit and ahead-of-her-times sensibilities.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2016
1.5/5 28% Warcraft (2016) Although the film desperately tries to inject some emotion and gravitas to the proceedings, the CGI-heavy treatment and underdeveloped characters result in a curiously cold end result.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2016
1.5/5 17% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) It's a frantically-paced but wholly unfunny caper which falls down at the first hurdle of any animated movie worth its salt -- providing a few laugh-out-loud moments.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2016
4/5 91% Captain America: Civil War (2016) It's worth seeing alone for the ultimate superhero face-off battle scene - epic stuff.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
