Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 30% Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) In Depp's filmography, Alice Through The Looking Glass sits between a dog smuggling apology video and Yoga Hosers... By the end of Alice, if you had to guess which one he did 'for the love of acting', you'd go with the dog video. ‐ Student Edge

2/5 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) It's the [Oscar Isaac] you love, only without his face, eyes, voice, temperament or screen presence. Oh well. Another wasted opportunity, from a decades-long series that seems to exclusively traffic in them. ‐ Student Edge
Posted May 18, 2016
4.5/5 62% Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) Bad Neighbours 2 opens in typical gross-out fashion, with a character vomiting into the mouth of another, and ends as one of the sweetest (and wokest) comedies we've ever seen. Now that's an arc! ‐ Student Edge
Posted May 5, 2016
4/5 90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) Devotion among bros (debrotion?) is tested in Civil War, which sees suspicious boy scout Steve Rogers battle Tony Stark, in defence of his old Brooklyn buddy Bucky Barnes... [it's] unique; you don't often say that of 13th instalments. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Apr 27, 2016
4/5 83% Midnight Special (2016) Next time someone asks you why there's no more magic at the movies, point them towards Midnight Special, the rare piece of faith-concerned filmmaking that's inquisitive, insightful and exhilarating. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Apr 18, 2016
3/5 80% Eddie The Eagle (2016) It gets the butterflies fluttering as Eddie prepares his final Olympic leap on the monstrous 90m ramp, and really, that's the only tricky jump this movie needs to land. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Apr 17, 2016
2.5/5 22% The Boss (2016) Melissa McCarthy will do anything for a laugh, except, frustratingly, edit for quality. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Apr 13, 2016
3/5 95% The Jungle Book (2016) Diversity rules - and Donald Trump's wall-favouring immigration policy drools - in Jon Favreau's timely update of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Apr 5, 2016
2.5/5 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) It's Batman v Superman v the contents of your bladder in Zack Snyder's too-long, 155-minute superhero slugfest. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Mar 22, 2016
4.5/5 91% The Witch (2016) The Witch's scares are plentiful; it's just that many of them come after, once you're alone with your thoughts, and its disturbing images suddenly return to mind. The closing credits only cap the horror; they do not end it. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Mar 17, 2016
3.5/5 90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) More Room than Doom, 10 Cloverfield Lane is a slow-burn thriller with different surprises in store than in 2008's Cloverfield. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Mar 10, 2016
3.5/5 37% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) With almost no regard for what's socially acceptable and targets as seemingly untouchable as sick children, the poor and Daniel Radcliffe, Grimsby gleefully spits (among other things) on the very idea of careful comedy. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Mar 9, 2016
3/5 53% Triple 9 (2016) Less than the sum of its parts, it now joins the disappointing X-Men ensemble flicks in accomplishing only one exceptional feat: getting all those actors to set at the same time. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Mar 3, 2016
4/5 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) When it comes to the Coen brothers, you can always believe the hype. Maybe just don't believe the trailers. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Feb 24, 2016
3.5/5 97% Brooklyn (2015) It tells one woman's tale beautifully. The rest of her new country's story, however, is left unfinished... and unseen. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Feb 11, 2016
2.5/5 23% Zoolander 2 (2016) I come here not to bury Derek Zoolander - only to eugoogalise him. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Feb 10, 2016
4/5 86% Steve Jobs (2015) Sleek, efficient and spunky, Aaron Sorkin's attempt to distil Steve Jobs' life into one pocket-sized movie reflects Apple products in all but one way: its ambition is alienating enough to render it user-unfriendly. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Feb 3, 2016
5/5 93% Anomalisa (2015) Anomalisa has its ancestors and, on account of its power and innovative designs, will have it descendants. But never forget: This was one in a million. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Feb 1, 2016
3.5/5 94% Room (2015) The feature as a whole may not match Larson's performance, but as a Brie Larson-delivery device, Room is second to none. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Jan 24, 2016
4.5/5 96% Spotlight (2015) The importance of storytelling, as a cause and a monument, has been dutifully accomplished twice now, by two teams with the title Spotlight. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Jan 24, 2016
4/5 75% The Hateful Eight (2015) With his 1-2-3 punch of Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight, Tarantino is revealing himself to be pop cinema's foremost political provocateur. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Jan 17, 2016
4.5/5 88% The Big Short (2015) Whodathunk that one of the most sobering depictions of an American tragedy would come from Adam McKay, director of countless Will Ferrell comedies and former head writer for Saturday Night Live? ‐ Student Edge
Posted Jan 13, 2016
2.5/5 69% The Danish Girl (2015) In The Danish Girl, Alicia Vikander reminds us she's great in everything, while Eddie Redmayne reminds us he's just in everything. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Jan 10, 2016
3/5 81% The Revenant (2015) If you absolutely have to watch a film about an incredibly inventive man surviving in the absolute worst conditions imaginable, can I recommend The Grey instead? ‐ Student Edge
Posted Jan 10, 2016
4/5 94% Carol (2015) How can you call Carol chilly when it's literally the thawing of cinema's inglorious past? ‐ Student Edge
Posted Jan 10, 2016
3.5/5 60% Sisters (2015) Is this the collabo between our brightest, savviest comedy players that we've been dreaming of? Not quite. It's easy to want more from Sisters, if only because Fey and Poehler have already given us so much. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Jan 10, 2016
4.5/5 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) John Boyega's Finn - the reformed Stormtrooper with a heart of gold - whoops in delight throughout J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Who could blame him? ‐ Student Edge
Posted Dec 17, 2015
3.5/5 66% The Night Before (2015) All The Night Before requires of [Rogen, Gordon-Levitt & Mackie] is good chemistry, and that's precisely what they conjure. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Dec 2, 2015
4.5/5 95% Creed (2015) Don't call it a comeback; the Rocky movies have been here for years. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Nov 25, 2015
4/5 70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) The final instalment - for real this time - of The Hunger Games ends the franchise on a high (while still continuing the series trend of being a total bummer). ‐ Student Edge
Posted Nov 18, 2015
3.5/5 65% Spectre (2015) No Bond movie is as good as the first ten minutes of this Bond movie. The problem is there's 140 additional minutes of Bond movie that follow. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Nov 6, 2015
3.5/5 91% Bridge of Spies (2015) Steven Spielberg is still big. It's his pictures that got small. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Oct 21, 2015
5/5 89% The Lobster (2016) Freaky-deakies need love too. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Oct 15, 2015
3/5 84% The Walk (2015) In Petit's melancholy final monologue, The Walk manages the most skillful high-wire act of all: being moving, without stumbling. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Oct 9, 2015
3/5 74% Black Mass (2015) It's impossible to take a movie seriously when the leading man looks - and acts - like Goldmember. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Oct 7, 2015
3.5/5 92% The Martian (2015) Hollywood has sent a clear message to nitpickers with The Martian: either suspend your disbelief when Sandra Bullock's hair doesn't move as it should in Gravity, or watch Matt Damon count his poop. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Oct 1, 2015
3/5 80% Macbeth (2015) Kurzel's pretty, remote Macbeth is one of those stage-to-screen translations that never quite leaps to life. It is recitation more than adaptation. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Sep 28, 2015
4.5/5 94% Sicario (2015) Heart of Darkness, eat your, well, heart out. Sicario is an enthralling journey into the ethically-murky waters of the drug war, featuring another - yes, another - sterling performance by Emily Blunt. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Sep 22, 2015
3.5/5 48% Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015) These Maze Runner movies don't eff around. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Sep 10, 2015
4/5 87% Straight Outta Compton (2015) "You are now about to witness the strength of street knowledge." No, really. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Aug 31, 2015
3.5/5 67% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) If only there were always two Armie Hammers. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Aug 12, 2015
1/5 9% Fantastic Four (2015) Fantastic Four isn't a movie. It's just a thing - pun intended, because we must find amusement somewhere - that happens for 100 minutes. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Aug 5, 2015
3.5/5 85% Trainwreck (2015) Those hoping Amy Schumer's first big-screen foray would be as ribald and incendiary as her Comedy Central sketch show might be mildly disheartened by Trainwreck. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Aug 4, 2015
4/5 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) The Mission: Impossible franchise is ageing much like Tom Cruise himself: inexplicably, as if by a wizard's touch. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Jul 28, 2015
3.5/5 81% Ant-Man (2015) This is the sorbet. Imperfect and perhaps creatively-compromised, Ant-Man nonetheless reinvigorated me, and, for the first time in a while, made me ready for more. No small feat. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Jul 14, 2015
3.5/5 63% Magic Mike XXL (2015) [Tatum moves] like a cut, super-charged Donald O'Connor. How his body works is one of our generation's greatest mysteries. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Jul 8, 2015
3/5 25% Terminator Genisys (2015) It's fine. It doesn't make a lick of sense, but it's fine. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Jul 1, 2015
5/5 98% Inside Out (2015) I personally walked out knowing myself more. Some therapists have achieved less. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Jun 23, 2015
3/5 71% Jurassic World (2015) The folly of man is on full display in Jurassic World. Unfortunately, it's happening both in front of the camera and behind it. ‐ Student Edge
Posted Jun 10, 2015
2/5 32% Entourage (2015) Once again, nothing happens, just for longer. ‐ Student Edge
