T-Meter Title | Year
9/10 97% Why Don't You Just Die! (Papa, sdokhni) (2020) The balance between humour, violence and tragedy could be queasy but Sokolov is an expert high wire artist of a director, always pulling the film back in another direction whenever it seems to be too much one thing. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 98% Extra Ordinary (2020) Hilarious, warm-hearted and , as a celebration of ordinary people and their victory over the greedy, powerful and selfish (and diabolical forces of darkness), Extra Ordinary really is genuinely extraordinary. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 86% The Nightingale (2019) In a way there are two films here, both potentially incredible, fighting for attention to the detriment of one another, so, while The Nightingale is a gruelling and masterfully shot film, it is sadly not the masterpiece we might have hoped for. - Starburst EDIT

7/10 86% Color Out of Space (2020) This isn't the greatest Lovecraft adaptation ever, doing relatively little to capture the spirit of his work, but it is an entertaining rollercoaster ride through his story that leaves you feeling cheerfully spooked if not cosmically horrified. - Starburst EDIT

6/10 50% The Golden Glove (Der goldene handschuh) (2019) Jonas Dassler is disturbingly compelling as Honka, more disturbing for his making a shuffling nobody so magnetic. - Starburst EDIT

6/10 83% Synchronic (2019) The chemistry between Dornan and Mackie is certainly good enough to sustain the buddy element of the film, although Dornan's character rapidly begins to feel somewhat superfluous to the plot as events go on. - Starburst EDIT

5/10 41% Tone-Deaf (2019) Bates clearly wanted to make something more than a horror movie but, in his assessment of intergenerational conflict, he is ironically tone deaf. - Starburst EDIT

4/0 17% Playmobil: The Movie (2019) By and large it feels like it's been written by people that don't really understand what made The Lego Movie work but who really want to make The Lego Movie without having to think too hard about it. - Starburst EDIT
